I don't think Zed is going. If she is, it didn't show it in the promo.
Though I am curious to see what happens with her in this ep. Judging from the promo it's gonna get really intense for her.

Well that's disappointing. A waste of AC's Spanish. Well here's hoping Zed goes to Mexico.

It was such a good ep!

Anne Marie was amazing. Plus we got a bit of history on the young John Constantine.

I'm glad they did address the Spanish thing. I also think this has to do with some version of Zed's storyline from the comics...

Plus clues to the Rising Darkness!

I CANNOT WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK!

Umm I think that Anna Maria need to take off the nun habit now and thinking she is better than Constantine.. She is more ruthless than Constantine. You don't shoot your partner, even superficially, to save innocents. I understand the greater good etc... but at least let them offer first to be sacrificed for the greater good.
Sheesh. Yeah Constantine can be mean and have no tact but at least he was thinking and was like "I don't know what to do now". THINK woman. Now Constantine has a demon inside of himself. She led him into the dark world as a teenager and now as a adult. How IRONIC.
Great episode.

Anne Marie was okay... but I think it was ridiculous that she shot John. I mean like, really? She's gonna shoot him and leave him there? That's messed up.

I'm glad about the spanish thing too.
And I can only gather that it has to do with her past of course... and it's weird though bc in the promo for next week's ep, she's there... with Chas. But, then how does she get out of the situation of being unconscious? I would've thought that guy would be bringing her back. But now I'm confused.

I really want next week to come now! Like guh this episode ended with such a cliffhanger now I'm anxious to see what happens

I thought that she did what Constantine would do but without the manipulation. They both agree that the innocent should not pay the price... She and Constantine are no innocents. She's just more straightforward about it. Besides, Constantine had no ideas on what to do.

Well, you're fine with it I think?
But I still didn't like it. I know he had no ideas, but I didn't want him to get shot.

Constantine does not wear a monk, priest or any religious garb but she does. Yeah they both have the same mind set from their history which she finally acknowledged BUT she still has on a NUN garb and that entails certain actions/thoughts.
Don't think like Constantine or like you did before you put on the new clothes otherwise it is just clothing. I very much doubt if there was a third person there , like Chas, Zoe or anyone else Constantine would shoot them outright and be like "greater good, blah, blah.." then leave?
Like I said he can be cruel, mean and lack tact but at least he tries to find a better way, gives a choice and not try to sacrifice a person as the first go to method.

YEah... But don't forget she was running away by becoming a nun... Not out of a desired to be a nun... Once she faced the true reason that she was a nun, it just became clothing.

Usually Constantine has time to think of something. That was not an option.

Wait... who in the world is Zoe??

And well, I didn't care much for Anne Marie, but other than that... This episode was really interesting Sucks though for that mother who got killed in the beginning.

This episode left me speechless. I did not expect what I saw happen...well happen. I'm looking forward to the next episode.

It was a good episode. It did seem inappropriate that Constantine kissed a nun. Constantine does beat to a different drummer though. Where was Zed fighting that woman towards the end? It looked like it was in the sky somewhere. I guess that's the name for it if there isn't another 1 lol. Fun episode.
