Penny Dreadful Season 3. Last theory.

Penny Dreadful Season 3. Last theory.

Isn’t it interesting that Lily wanted to fight men’s oppression just to find herself right where she started; Tied up and knowing she, even after all the powers she has, will become, once again a man’s play-thing? What if she tricks Victor once again?

What if their antidote doesn’t really work and she outsmarts Victor, taking advantage of his love for her and ends up killing him?
I think Ethan will see Brona while she’s been held captive by Victor…and that will turn into Bronethan in season 4, unfortunately for me.
Now, I believe it was a mistake when Dorian told Justine to show him her claws as I think she’ll be the one who ends up killing him. The reason why I think Dorian will die is because of all the fuss his fellow production peeps and everyone in Dublin was making when it was time for him to leave. They sounded as if they were never going to see him again, unlike previous seasons. That’s when the Dorian will die theory emerged.
I was wondering who this woman was but now I know it has to be Catriona kicking butt

but I’m still wondering if the man on the left is Ethan or John Clare! Oh, well, at least I found out who one character was. Yay! Or is it Lily? Nvm…
Dr. Seward will be there as well. (She’s between Malcolm and Victor) I wonder if she dies and also if the cut wife in her will emerge out of necessity.

Vanessa, to me is not a Familiar because she didn’t drink from Dracula’s blood but she’s not Vanessa either; she’s Amunet. To me, her demon has taken over.
Paco Cabezas said in one of his interviews that, the end of the season will “close the cycle”. That leads me to believe that either Ethan or Vanessa will die but mostly Vanessa. If that scene in which Ethan walks inside that room full of candles is not, yet again, another one of Kaetenay’s visions, I think we’ll have a repeat of season one between Vanessa and Ethan. Vanessa will fight to push her demon back long enough to ask Ethan to kill her. Ethan, after seeing everything she has gone through, and knowing that sparing her life back in season 1 was not a kindness after all, will gather all the strength he has never been able to collect and will end up pulling the trigger this time, after endless tears and I love yous have been spoken from both parties, of course. Paco also said if we could see the faces of the 4 men carrying the coffin, we would know who’s inside, btw.
I think that Ethan, as the Wolf of God, was put here to protect human kind, even or specially from Vanessa. Here he is before he meets Dracula.

Ethan, to his delight, will be killing familiars all night long! Even Dracula fears him! But that won’t stop Dracula from grabbing Ethan by the throat to show him how powerful he is…but once Ethan turns into a werewolf…

But first, Ethan and Catriona will have this chat right before Ethan goes to look for Victor, I think.

Kaetenay said, if Ethan could not be saved, they would have to kill the evil he had become. I think the same applies to Vanessa but I hope she doesn’t die. I hope Ethan performs another exorcism on her ass and snaps her out of it, then kiss her and hopefully we get a sex scene of Vanethan right on top of Dracula’s corpse.
Or…Ethan could die. The way I see it, Ethan would sacrifice himself to save her, probably by fighting Dracula off Vanessa and ending up getting hurt by him. if by the end of the season, Ethan leaves Vanessa and returns to Brona because Vanessa was with Dracula I’m going to scream!
People have been saying that it’ll be Malcolm the one who dies. I hope nobody but the characters that annoy me die, tbh. I have a small hope that Malcolm will survive because of this:

I think that’s how Malcolm looks after the battle…hope so!

I leave you with this gif of John Clare sharing a tender moment with his wife! yassss!

Penny Dreadful. A Blade of Grass theory.

Penny Dreadful. A Blade of Grass theory.

So by now we know that tonight’s episode, A Blade of Grass, will be more focused on Vanessa and John Clare’s story. By the way, I think we’ll learn John Clare’s real name. Now, we’ll have to get used to call him something else and just when I was getting used to call him John Clare… *Sighs forever*
In the beginning, I thought that John might be a bad guy who tortured Vanessa in the asylum but now I’m thinking that he might be the only person there who tried to help her, as much as he could.

PDS3E4-385-(-10)
For example: When he takes the blanket from her, he looks remorseful. He looks like he doesn’t want to take the blanket but, I’m assuming, he has to follow orders and even when he explains to her why she can’t keep it, he does it in a quiet tone and keeps glancing at the door as if he fears someone might hear him.


I think John tries to help her, in his own way, but at the same time, he’s a sort of a torturer (takes blanket) to her.

I believe Vanessa fears seeing him because he’s the one who takes “care” of her in there. I also think that Dr. Jekyll knows Vanessa, since he has been working in the asylum. Perhaps he even did some experiments on her?
Another thing that makes me believe he’s good is because when she attacks him and scratches him, he doesn’t hurt her at all.

He could’ve knocked her out by punching her in the face but he doesn’t do it. He just gets up and hurries out the room.


In the mirror scene, I’m thinking Vanessa is in a straitjacket probably after she attacks John or someone else. I assume John is the one who applies makeup on her and shows her her own reflection to try to bring her back from that dark place she’s in. But, hey, maybe he’s just a psycho-stalker guy who’s obsessed with her…like everyone else…


I also like how concerned John is of Vanessa not eating. I guess it’s because he knows they’ll probably force-feed her if she doesn’t eat for long.

The other man Vanessa talks about in the clip, is Dracula, of course

and I think that throughout the course of their sessions she will learn that Dr. Sweet and Dracula are the same person. At the same time, I think that Dracula will realize that John Clare is getting close to Vanessa and possibly see him as a threat to him, which makes me believe that Dracula is the one who, in the end, kills John Clare. So I think @Reyyleighd was right about Vanessa not been the one who kills John.

To me, Vanessa looks like she’ll sink deeper and deeper into the world in the asylum.


I think that Vanessa and Sweet will see each other again, while Vanessa has no idea of who he really is but once she realizes that Dr. Sweet has been lying to her, (possibly after Ethan and the others return) she will go confront him at the Museum.
Dracula might imprison Vanessa, making the others come to her rescue like on season 2
