Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Episode 4 will see continued tensions between the Mexicans and the Americans. Here’s a look at the promo takeaways.

Tensions are high on Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Episode 4. People are turning to those you’d least expect. It’s time to break down the promo for the episode.

Titled “Josefina and the Holy Spirit,” we’ll see more of the Vega family. They’re all struggling with the events that have happened and what they’re to do next. As Mateo finds himself turning deeper into rioting territory, Josefina turns to an unexpected source of comfort.

Meanwhile, we’ll see more of Peter Craft and his ongoing infatuation with Elsa. It’s clear there are more feelings for her there, but what is it that Peter’s wife knows?

Here’s a look at the promo and synopsis for Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Episode 4. We’ll get straight into the breakdown, afterward.

"Tiago scours Sister Molly’s (Kerry Bishé) beach house for clues, leading to disquieting revelations. Councilwoman Beck (Christine Estabrook) proposes an alternate route for the Arroyo-Seco motorway, infuriating Townsend (Michael Gladis). Peter Craft (Rory Kinnear) invites Elsa to a party at his home, inflaming the suspicions of his wife Linda (Piper Perabo). Lewis asks the gangster Benny Berman (Brad Garrett) to help battle the growing Nazi menace in LA. And after Josefina Vega (Jessica Garza) has a harrowing encounter with the police, Mateo (Johnathan Nieves) seeks retribution with his new Pachuco (Emmanuel López Alonso) friends as Josefina pursues spiritual enlightenment with Sister Molly."

5. Tiago just wants the truth

More from Amazon Channels

Poor Tiago. He and Molly hit things off so well at the pier, but it’s clear that Molly has a deep secret. She knows who killed her former lover. The problem is she’s terrified of the people who clearly carried out the murder.

Tiago just wants to help, but he needs the truth to do that. Will Molly be able to talk to him when she’s terrified of what her mother will do next?

4. Linda could be ready to spill the beans

Peter Craft if getting himself in a sticky situation. The more infatuated he becomes with Elsa, the more trouble he’s causing for his family. Linda, Peter’s wife, is already suspicious. Inviting Elsa to a dinner party is going to make her all the more suspicious.

It looks like she’s ready to share her husband’s secrets. The question is, what are those secrets exactly? How much does he actually believe the Nazi principles?

3. Lewis is ready to turn to unlikely friends

Lewis is understandably struggling. He’s not going to let his friends’ deaths stop him in his tracks. He just needs to turn to the right people.

It’s the lesser of two evils during Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Episode 4. Lewis is willing to turn to a mob boss in order to prevent the Nazis. Can he trust the mob boss? Could the mob boss be secretly on the side of the Nazis? That’s something we’ll likely get to find out.

2. Someone is going to end up killed

Councilman Townsend isn’t going to be happy with a suggestion Councilwoman Beck makes. It looks like she’s trying to ease tensions by finding another route for the highway. However, that puts various plans on hold for others.

Townsend already wants Beck dead. It’s clear that someone is going to end up dead during the episode. Will it be the mob killing the Nazis or will the Nazis kill Beck? And why has Santa Muerta been called to take the Mexican dead?

1. The Vega family continues to split

If the trouble between Raul and Tiago wasn’t enough, the Vega family is split elsewhere. Mateo will continue down the path of violence and destruction. When he’s arrested by the cops, that’s not surprising. He’s disenfranchised, and it reminds me a little of the Jacobites in Scotland and the Regulators in the Colonies.

However, his sister, Josefina, is turning in another direction. She wants Sister Molly to help her. Rather than focus on the physical, Josefina is focusing on the spiritual. Will this lead to a connection to Santa Muerta?
