Personally speaking, I love serial killer movies and tv shows. It is sickening in itself that my go-to movies are some serial killer movies like Seven and Silence of the Lambs. Also, Mindhunter blew my mind when it came out. Prodigal’s son deals with a criminal psychologist, Malcom bright, who uses his intelligence and twisted mentality to help NYPD solve crimes. Still, there cannot be a show like this without a twist. The twist is Malcolm’s father is a famous serial killer known as ‘The Surgeon,’ and Malcom has a mother with issues of her own.
Malcom has helped the police in his childhood to capture his dad, and he has never met him ever since until a serial killer on the loose uses his father’s methods of killing. He must collaborate with his father to catch that serial killer. Phew.
What are the Possibilities?
The 11th episode of the season titled ‘You can Run’ is scheduled to release on 4th May, and the penultimate episode titled ‘Sun and Fun’ is scheduled to release on 11th May. Episode 10 shows Malcom closing on the killer as he finds an eye witness of the killing- a retired Grandmaster of chess who has a phobia of outside. Dani interviews in his room, and at the prison, Pete tries to escape the prison. This season’s Finale could be Malcom facing the killer and coming face-to-face with his father outside of the prison facility. You can expect some crazy revelation, and many fan theories circulate the internet on how the season would end.
When can We Expect Episode 13?
Episode 13 will be released on 18th May, and there is a glaring possibility that Malcom will have trouble being actively concerned with the case as there is a prison break and his inner demons, which he has to face. There is much to follow when even after committing 23 murders and being absent for most of his son’s childhood. Marty wants Malcom to ‘find him.’ The Finale of the season is Titled ‘The Last weekend,’ and it is chilling to say it out loud. You can expect more bodies and more grotesque in the upcoming Episodes.
What Would be the Cast?
Prodigal son gains from the exceptional cast, especially Michael Sheen, who steals every scene he is in; only some actors can make the audiences stare at them in awe. I can remember few names like Henry Winkler and Tad Danson. I also feel that show hasn’t used the full potential of Michael sheen. Other cast member includes Tom Payne as the incredibly troubled Psychologist Malcom Bright, Halston sage plays Ainsley Whitley, Catherina Zeta-Jones as the captivating Vivian Capshaw. And also Frank Harts plays the detective JT Tarmel, Bellamy Young plays Jessica Whitley also Malcolm’s Mother, Aurora Perrineau as Dani Powell a weakness of Malcom.
There are also some great recurring roles like Christian Borle as Friorpete. Also, Charlayne Woodard, who plays Gabrielle La deux, and Dermot Mulroney as Nicholas Endicott. Prodigal son created by Chris Fedak and Sam sklave. Do catch the latest episodes, and you won’t be disappointed, watch serial killer dramas in the comfort of your home.
