With the search for Sir Malcolm Murray’s daughter Mina at the heart of “Penny Dreadful,” the only link to finding her seems to be Vanessa Ives. At this point though, it’s becoming less about Vanessa reaching out, but rather Mina doing the searching.
In the first of two preview clips from the next episode, “Closer Than Sisters,” Vanessa writes a letter to Mina, asking her to make contact so she doesn’t end up writing an “endless ribbon of words” for the rest of her life.
Whether or not he believes in her psychic powers, Murray is at the end of his rope, which is seen in the second clip below. There is no other option but to use Vanessa to help in his search. She’s growing tired of his attitude and the way he treats her, though.
At this rate, the uneasy alliance between the two is going to snap sooner than later. Will they be able to find what’s left of Mina before it does? “Penny Dreadful” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
