Remember last season of the Penny Dreadful? Remember that incredible episode called “The Nightcomers” with Patti LuPone playing The Cut Wife, also known as Joan Clayton. The whole episode was a magnificent dance between LuPone’s Clayton and Eva Green’s character Vanessa Ives. Jaws dropped after that episode aired and it took a long time to pick our chins back off the floor. I’m going to use a cliche here, it was an acting tour-de-force.
We knew that LuPone would be coming back this season but we didn’t know in what capacity since her story line played out last season. Well! Take a look at this sneak peek. LuPone is playing Dr. Seward, a hard-assed psychologist that has Vanessa scratching to her bones from nervousness. I wouldn’t want Dr. Seward as my therapist. Yikes. I’m curious to see if Seward will have anything to do with Clayton. What do you guys think?
