In the next episode, we can expect Thomas to stay hushed about killing his father but Martha may just figure it out
Contains spoilers for 'Pennyworth' Season 3 Episode 6
'Pennyworth' Season 3 on HBO stunned everyone after the premiere of its sixth episode last week as it ended on a cliffhanger. It is not every day that you see two significant characters getting murdered in one episode, although the death of Paloma Faith's Bet Sykes is still questionable at this point. Furthermore, Thomas might stay hushed about killing his father but Martha being herself might just figure it out. The third season, which is marketed with the subtitle 'The Origin of Batman's Butler', will conclude after 3 more episodes.
Speaking of this season, it is safe to say that shifting to HBO has brought the series more viewers and fans have been acknowledging how "underrated" the show is. However, in the previous two seasons, it had an average review from the critics. Jack Bannon and Ben Aldridge have been the highlight of this season. Assuming the storyline of the series will now lead the audience to how Bannon's Alfie actually became the infamous 'Batman's butler' is quite exciting.
Before we jump on to the next episode, let's rewind to what happened in the previous episode which is the sixth episode titled 'Hedgehunter'. Viewers see in a flashback how Zahra's father was kidnapped, with a close friend betraying her to Alfred. In the present, Alfred and Zahra get ready to meet with the man who offers information about her father's whereabouts.
In Gotham, Thomas arrives in Wayne manor and confronts his father, who does not try to excuse himself for his actions but reassures him that he loves him. Meanwhile, Bet is interrogated by Salt who reveals he too developed a super soldier like Captain Blighty. After threatening the baby, he learns Francis Gaunt betrayed him, and orders Bet to be executed, but she escapes.
Daveboy, while hallucinating, eats a letter Sandra sent to Alfred. Alfred goes home for his spare gun and finds his mom and Roger together, which surprises him. After finding a room full of babies all belonging to Salt, Bet finds her baby but is stabbed in the back by Salt. She triggers his extending spike implant through his heart, seemingly killing him. Alfred and Zahra meet with the contact, who tells her that her father is on a secret island prison at the Hebrides and if she'd give the name of all her major supporters to the Kalpoor president, the British government would release him.
Alfred disagrees, saying this is a trap and she was manipulated, but the man recognizes him and tells Zahra how it was Alfred who kidnapped her father, something Alfred admits. After a tense standoff though, Zahra shoots the contact instead but then breaks up with Alfred, telling him she never wants to see him again.
A dying Bet leaves the baby on a bus as she succumbs to her wounds. As the drug wore off, Daveboy realizes he cannot remember the last two days as Alfred tells him they will go to the Hebrides to perform a prison break. However, in Gotham, Patrick Wayne leaves a bar and a masked figure shoots him dead in an alley, who is revealed to be Thomas.
In the next episode, we can expect Alfie and Dave attempting to break Zahra's father out of prison. And they might even be successful in doing so. Once Sandra is reunited with her father, Dave will discover what is wrong with him and why he keeps tripping out.
Alfie and the Prime Minister will be working against each other due to their conflict of opinions regarding Zahra's dad. Paloma Faith's Bet Sykes' situation is a little unpredictable due to the previous episode's vague ending.
'Pennyworth' Season 3 Episode 7 is scheduled to release on HBO Max on Thursday, November 3, 2022, at 12 am PT/3 am ET. Episode 7 is titled 'Don’t Push It' and will have a run time of 46 minutes.
