    again, just a little dissapointed. when i realized it was Deidre’s turn i just about became a pile of mush, but the episode was so dissapointing. it seems like all of these episodes from the final season arent really going anywhere and their all just here to tell senseless stories. i love wormwoods season 1 and 2, and ill probably continue to listen to at least the first five minutes of each episode, but really, ive lost interest with where you guys got sidetracked from the story.

  2. Wormwood says:

    Well, RJ, sorry you were disappointed. We don’t see these as senseless stories, though. Wormwood has always been about the characters first and foremost, and we felt these stories were worthy. We still do.

    That said — if you really think about it, you’ll see that the plot IS moving forward. You’ve learned a lot since the end of Season Two. Cedric’s daughter came back, and she’s one of Adramelech’s vampires. Wormwood is surrounded by vampires and werewolves. We learned about Bishop Grail’s mission. We learned of Deidre’s daughter, and we learned the depth of the relationship between Crowe and McQueen. We’ve learned the SNSA has a special freelance contractor, Henry Howe, inside Wormwood — and her connection to Crowe was revealed in the Five Fingers of Glory. Crowe and Sparrow have been resurrected and are prisoners of Bressier. Jimmy Details stole the Hand of Glory and ran away from Wormwood. Don Marino has been put in prison, removing his immediate threat.

    But we suspect you want to know about the Object, eh? Well, the next installment tells you a LARGE portion of the history of the Object. How about that?

    Once the Hermit’s Tale is out, the Portraits will be done. And then we’ll move onto Wormwood: Revelation, which will come in a few months. THAT series will be VERY similar to Season One… and you’ll get all of the stuff you’ve been waiting for regarding Adramelech’s plan, the nature of the Object, and Jacob’s final fate.

    So we suggest you stick around for Revelation. We think you’ll enjoy.

    I liked this episode, I imagine that once the final story is told, listeners will have “a-ha” moments. It it turns out that way, it could be cool to try listening to the episodes in a “Pulp Fiction” order.
    Also I bet Arthur could do a great Michael Caine impersonation.

    By hook or by crook I will shoehorn Joe J Thomas’ carny character into the final episodes. He nailed it! I’m still laughing a week later.

    I really love the Portraits, I think it is so interesting to have a bit more on these characters. And we seem to learn so much in each one.
