Pennyworth Season 3 Finale Features A Big Bombing
In the finale episode, two-story threads from the penultimate episode came together. After rescuing Bet and Lucius from Level-7, Alfred and Martha left General Thursday who is trapped inside until someone can let them in from the outside. On the other hand, London’s milk supply is spiked with Lullaby ensuring that most of the city is under its influence, including Prime Minister Aziz.
With an under-influence Aziz and Thursday being angry about the Level-7 situation, a series of phone calls happen between the men. This ultimately results in Thursday making the decision to bomb 10 Downing Street. As the episode approaches its end, most of the major characters from the series have escaped the city. However, they do witness the blast from afar.
Prime Minister Aziz Was The Target Of The Blast
As per ComicBook, the showrunner Bruno Heller revealed that the Season 3 finale blast is open to interpretation. Moreover, it opens the door for different types of shenanigans if Pennyworth is renewed for Season 4.
He said, “It definitely is the Prime Minister who’s got him, or rather, he was the target and not the entire city of London. There’s enough of the city left to rebuild in Season 4. And, as you know, nuclear bombs at least in the comic books lead to all sorts of shenanigans. Strange developments.”
Heller further explained where the fourth season could go after the blast. “It would have to be slightly more bonkers. We’ve got to keep up that arc. It’s leading to a world in which people like Batman and the Joker exist so it was always the intention to kind of keep upping the ante on the craziness of this world as long as it keeps a ground in real life, which is where Jack Bannon and Alfred come in because he’s such a regular person, the world will get stranger and crazier as it goes on,” he added.
Will Pennyworth Be Renewed For Season 4?
As of now, the show hasn’t been renewed for a fourth season. Moreover, it’s too early to tell if it will be renewed. At the time of writing this article, the series has a 100% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Moreover, it currently enjoys an average of 4.3 out of 5 ratings.
