With the lack of original programming available on TV during the holidays, we took a chance on “Constantine” and binged on the first eight episodes. Our verdict? January 16th and Episode 1.09, “The Saint of Last Resorts – Part 2,” can’t get here soon enough so we can find out what happens next. And as luck would have it, the ep starts two hours earlier than usual! It’s airing at 8pm now… BEFORE “Grimm” instead of after.
After a rocky start (but nowhere near as bad as we’d feared), we’ve been totally won over by the show. It’s a lot like “Supernatural” – shifty angels and all – and the leads, especially Matt Ryan as John Constantine, have really settled into their roles. The always great Mark Margolis guest stars the week after next so here’s hoping “Constantine” goes out on a high note with its ratings kicked up a notch so we get a second season to see what the powers-that-be can really do.
Enough sales pitch… If you’re already watching, you know what I’m talking about, and for you we have an image gallery from the upcoming Episode 1.09, in which John puts his life on the line as he gets even closer to the source of the rising darkness.
“Constantine” Episode 1.09 – “The Saint of Last Resorts – Part 2” (1/16/15; 8-9pm)
In order to fend off a vicious attack, John (Matt Ryan) summons a demon into himself. Chas (Charles Halford), Zed (Angélica Celaya), and Anne Marie (guest star Claire van der Boom) race against time to save John before it’s too late. Efren Ramirez guest stars.
