INTO THE BADLANDS REVIEW: SEASON 3 EPISODE 14
If last week’s episode tied up Badlands‘ major story arc in a neat little bloodstained bow, then “Curse of the Red Rain” provides closure for its ongoing romantic subplots, all of which have magically appeared over the course of this season. And, as its name suggests, one of them doesn’t end too romantically.
More importantly though, this episode is a vehicle to showcase amazing performances from its female cast members, who have become the best part of this show this year. Lorraine Touissant especially, is fantastic as the venomous yet empathetic Cressida. She plays the role with a sense of conviction that matches that of Babou Ceesay’s Pilgrim. They encourage each other to take things to the next level when they’re on screen together, making us fall in a weird sort of love with their evil yet understandable ways. Villains you hate to love are the best, aren’t they?
