Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Episode 2 Spoilers and Promo:
Have a look at the promo for ‘Penny Dreadful: City of Angels’ episode 2 below:
The promo reveals how Lewis chooses to hide the fact that Raul was the one that shot him. Obviously, he does so because Tiago is his partner. Apart from that, the promo also reveals how the second episode will introduce a character that is based on Aimee Semple McPherson, a real-life radio evangelist.
Here is what the blurb for the second episode says: “Raul Vega lies on the brink of death; Tiago and Lewis meet radio evangelist Sister Molly Finnister; Councilman Townsend furthers his political goals; Peter Craft runs into Elsa at the beach; Lewis and his friends investigate Third Reich activities.”
As one can read, Raul is still not dead. Hence, there is still hope for Tiago, who chooses his duty and the law over the demands of his people. Moreover, the blurb also reveals how Magda will return as Elsa and continue playing the same characters that were shown in the first episode as opposed to playing a new one in each installment. Additionally, Townsend has mostly decided to side with the Germans according to the blurb, while Lewis would be depicted persisting in his investigation of Nazi activities in Los Angeles.
