[Spoiler alert to only listen to the podcast if you have already watched the August 11 episode of Pennyworth, "Lady Penelope." MAJOR spoilers will be discussed.]

Who knew a huge shocker would come so early in the run on of the EPIX drama, Pennyworth?

Pennyworth fans were dealt a serious blow last weekend when the stylish espionage drama about the early years of Batman's butler, Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), went and wrote off a certain character we won't spoil here.

Given that the show is set nowhere near the comic-book universe Alfred winds up in, we're pretty sure this death is permanent, and according to Bannon, it's definitely going to change things for the young Brit.
