Bonus:

When you remember it’s the first Sunday of May and there’s no Penny Dreadful premiere tonight

Due to the writers/producers/executives lack of vision for future season potential and lack of respect to it’s fans, characters, and even actors

There is no light without darkness, no courage without fear, no pleasure without pain, no salvation without sin, no life without death, no kindness without cruelty. The devil is in all of us, that’s what makes us humans.
