110 Marianne Faithfull
Can you believe it? It’s already the final episode of Pennyworth! Marianne Faithfull is the title of the season finale.

One of the hunters with which the Queen went out hunting is still alive and alerts to the proper authorities that the Queen is taken. Meanwhile, Bet and Peggy order the Queen to call the Prime Minister with an offer. The entire government must resign and Lord Harwood should be installed as the new Prime Minister. Having control over the entire army force is not good enough for Harwood. The Prime Minister, of course, doesn’t want to resign. So Lord Harwood gives him 24 hours for a peaceful resignation before he’ll use the army to get control anyway.
