Penny Dreadful + first and last shots (part 1)

I’ll never get over how the first time we met Vanessa she’s desperately praying to God and her last act is seeing God in her final moments, or how the first time we meet Ethan he’s a gun for hire and he ends everything by shooting the woman he loves, or Victor who we first met playing with death like a chemistry set but has now seen too much of it to bare, or Sir Malcolm who we met searching for his dead daughter and now both his daughters are dead. And then there’s Dorian in an almost identical shot to how we met him because, like the portraits behind him, he is unchanging.

And now the rest of the tale. So we were cleaved apart; two brothers cast out to two realms. One brother to Earth and the other brother to Hell. And thus will be set in eternal enmity, my brother on Earth to feed on the blood of the living by night and myself in Hell to feed on the souls of the dead. Both in an eternal quest for the mother of evil.
