This week’s oddly misjudged pre-watershed moment is a scene where a live toad is placed into somebody’s empty eye socket. Yes, I know – it’s actually a neat, creepy idea (the creature gives you second sight) but too spicy for the timeslot.
It’s also typical of the way J&H is elaborately imagined and full of quirky details. The trouble is that the plot is weighed down by talky scenes and Jekyll saying “There’s still so much that I need to find out”, like some school swot behind on his genealogy homework.
At least things come to a tense, all-action climax tonight, as we learn about über-monster Lord Trash and the dusty antique jar that holds his heart.
Maggie has developed sepsis, and Robert and his friends work tirelessly to find a cure. Garson makes an unexpected discovery about the Jekyll family's curse that could hold the key to saving her life. Dance sets his trap, making Robert a tempting offer in return for his help. However, their encounter is disrupted by Bulstrode and a gunfight ensues.
