The season premiere for Showtime’s Season 3 of Penny Dreadful was all kinds of awesome. The episode started with intensity and sustained it, mightily, for the entire hour. This season is going to rock.

One of the best things about the season premiere, “The Day Tennyson Died” was Patti LuPone’s appearance as Dr. Seward. She plays tough psychologist to Eva Green’s Vanessa Ives. Vanessa is shaken at Dr. Seward’s resemblance to Joan Clayton, the Cut Wife from Season 2 (also played by Patti LuPone) and then it is revealed that Dr. Seward is related to the Clayton bloodline. Spooky! The dialogue dance that LuPone and Green perform is incredibly exciting and one can only hope that they keep this up the entire season. Based on one of the sneak peaks below, they are.
