This will contain only minor spoilers.
So, I’ve finally finished the entire show, and let me tell you – this show is unpredictable, in the BEST way, and I loved every part of it!
Vignette(Cara Delevingne) and Philo(Orlando Bloom) rekindle their love, after a backstory showing why Philo originally deserted Vignette. Philo was also outed as being half fae, and then wrongly accused of being the monstrous serial killer. That too, was revealed in the season finale! Believe me everyone, it was a really good reveal!
The show also touched on an incest plot. The two sibling lovers are definitely showing elements of Cersei and Jamie Lannister from Game Of Thrones. If the two pair of siblings ever fought, it would be hard to tell who the victors would be. I’m not going to reveal who the sibling lovers are yet – it would spoil almost everything for you. Like who the killer is, motives, etc., so you guys should definitely check out the show! It’ll leave you wanting more!
The show does couples so well. Whether it’s friendships, enemies, or lovers. Speaking of, these two together are the highlights of season one, for me:
The characters, Agreus (David Gyasi) and Imogen (Tamzin Merchant) make a deal to help one another: Agreus needs accepting from the human faction, and Imogen needs money. Seems like a fair trade right? Their relationship and banter with one another is addictive, comedic, and has its fireworks. It’s one of the best storylines of the season!
Of course, it wouldn’t be a show, without a rebellion of some sorts. These guys decide they’ve had enough of the way they’re treated, and decide that it’s time to fight back, and what they start doing is shocking. You can’t really blame them. The humans are really disgusting in their treatment of the fae. I’m kind of on their side here! 🤷🏽♂️
So, there you have it. There are quite a few deaths, the identity of the monstrous serial killer is revealed, relationships are formed and tested, discrimination with political play is at an all time high, a new power rises, and a rebellion has begun. Looks like Season Two is going to be very explosive! Can’t wait!
Carnival Row airs on Amazon Prime Video and consists of eight episodes. It has already been renewed for a second season! If you haven’t watch this, I highly recommend that you do. With Game of Thrones gone, it’s been hard to find a really good show to watch. And now we have one! Check it out you guys!
