Is James Delaney in league with Satan? Maybe, but that’s not a question Taboo is interested in exploring any time soon.
The fourth episode of Taboo put politics front and center: politics between Delaney and his late father’s wife Lorna, politics with Delaney trying to stay one step ahead of the East India Company, and politics with assembling the League of the Damned.
Taboo isn’t the show I thought it would be going in, but halfway through its first season it is showing its true colors. Like Tom Hardy told me in a recent interview, it’s more focused on politics than the supernatural.
