Carnival Row 1×04 The Joining of Unlike Things
There has been another gruesome murder on Carnival Row: the headmaster of the orphanage, where Philo (Orlando Bloom) grew up, has been killed by a strange creature. While Philo is investigating the case, he encounters the killer in the sewers of The Burgue but the monster is able to get away. Philo later learns that the creature is a Darkasher, a golem made from body parts and reanimated with dark magic. Sceptical that such a thing is possible, he turns to the Haruspex (Alice Krige) for proof.
Ezra (Andrew Gower) apologizes to his sister Imogen (Tamzin Merchant) for his harsh words over breakfast and then leaves to meet the family’s solicitor. Once he is out of the house, Imogen prepares to receive Mr Agreus (David Gyasi). She hopes to use his desire to be accepted into (human) society by getting him to invest into her brother’s endeavours but the wealthy Puck isn’t as gullible as Imogen might have thought and misinterprets her intentions.
Dahlia (Chloe Pirrie), leader of The Black Raven, suspects Vignette (Cara Delevingne) is informing on them to the police. To prove her innocence, Vignette must find the real traitor and is forced to confront him, which puts her into a great deal of danger.
Ritter Longerbane (Ronan Vibert) is taken into custody for the abduction of Jonah Breakspear (Arty Froushan) and attacked by the boy’s distraught father, who doesn’t believe in Longerbane’s innocence. The real kidnapper uses this chance to kill Longerbane and reveal the place where Jonah is held so he can be rescued by the police. After arriving back at home, Jonah realizes who the person was that held him hostage.
