(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Episode 2 of “The Nevers.”)

If it wasn’t clear to you by the end of the series premiere of “The Nevers” that the villainous “Touched” woman Maladie (played by Amy Manson) has a personal vendetta against our heroine Amalia True (Laura Donnelly), then her twisted game in Sunday’s Episode 2 should have helped you to that conclusion. After all, it finally got Amalia there — though it did leave her (and us) with more questions.

During the hour, titled “Exposure,” Amalia is drawn to Maladie’s lair, where the disturbed woman is keeping her kidnapped victims: Mary (Eleanor Tomlinson), who she grabbed in the first episode, and Penance (Ann Skelly), who she snatched while Amalia was busy looking for Mary. Maladie has Bonfire Annie (Rochelle Neil) and her other followers put nooses around Mary and Penance’s necks and hold them on parallel ledges, telling Amalia she has to shoot one while the other will get to live. If not, they will both drop and their necks will snap simultaneously.
