It is hard not to love a series where the main character uses phrases like “gobsmacked” which the main protagonist John Constantine does in Blessed Are the Damned. In Constantine, the Liverpool lad brings his country’s language with him to the rural U.S. and to the not so rural areas of the country. In this week’s episode a lay preacher for a small church is bitten by a rattlesnake and he lays dying on the floor. Suddenly, he comes back to life clutching a feather. Upon his return he can now perform miracles, such as healing and the first member of his congregation, a one legged man, grows a new leg after being touched by the preacher.
Constantine: A Feast of Friends starts with entry through an airport and after arousing the suspicions of the passport clerk, a man is taken into customs and questioned. An object is on the table in front of him and the customs officer asks what it is. The man asks the officer not to touch the thing and when he does, a whirlwind of bugs come out and fly into the officer’s mouth. Constantine and Zed are bonding in the sunshine and she sees falling coins just before Manny comes to visit and he talks cryptically about Zed. When Constantine asks Manny why he is there, he says he is not and vanishes.
