It took five whole episodes and the start of the sixth, but we finally got to enjoy Tamzin Merchant naked in Carnival Row again. For those who haven’t been following, I’ve been tracking the nude scenes in the second and final season of Carnival Row since the first two episodes aired two weeks ago. Or I’ve been trying to anyway. This isn’t just Tamzin Merchant’s first nude scene of the season, but it’s the first (and so far only) nude scene of the season as a whole. We’ve got four episodes left until the story ends, so let’s hope we are still to get treated to some more nudity from Cara Delevingne and Karla Crome, the latter of whom has been promoted to a main character this season.
I was actually pleasantly surprised by the nude scene in this episode. It begins with Imogen Spurnrose wearing some very exposing lingerie-type outfit while in bed with her eloping partner. While watching it for the first time, I was wondering whether her nipples were technically visible through her top since it did have a very meshy sort of design. I’d initially planned to dig through it after the fact as a sort of cope for the closest to nudity that we were going to get this season, so imagine my surprise when in the very next scene, the top comes off and her boobs are out for her sex scene.
If this is the last Tamzin Merchant nude scene in Carnival Row, I’d obviously rather it wasn’t, but I’m nonetheless pleased with it. I don’t know if she’s put on a teeny bit of weight (in the best way possible) since last season or what, but I swear her tits looks significantly bigger in this episode than they did in either of her nude scenes from the first season. Is it just me or are you guys seeing it too? Have a look at the gallery of Tamzin Merchant nude in the Carnival Row episode Original Sins and let me know.
