The official synopsis for episode 1.17 reads:
“The NYPD dives into a case surrounding a famous mommy blogger, whose husband was mysteriously stabbed just days after their baby was born. Meanwhile, Bright finds his way back to Eve, but can’t shake his paranoia that there’s more to her than meets the eye. To help ease his nerves, Ainsley helps him do some investigating and uncovers a secret she has been keeping.”
Prodigal Son centers on a criminal psychologist named Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne), who knows how killers think because his father, Martin Whitly (Michael Sheen), is a notorious serial killer known as “The Surgeon.” Malcolm will use his twisted genius and razor-sharp instincts as a forensic profiler to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers, all while dealing with a manipulative mother, annoyingly normal sister, and a homicidal father still looking to bond with his prodigal son and his own constantly evolving neuroses.
The series stars Tom Payne (The Walking Dead) as the brilliant crime profiler Malcolm Bright, and Golden Globe-nominated actor Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex, Good Omens) as Malcolm’s father, Martin Whitly, who was once a devoted family man and a successful cardiothoracic surgeon with high-profile patients. He’s also a predatory sociopath who’s in prison for murdering more than 20 people.
Prodigal Son also stars Bellamy Young (Scandal) as Jessica Whitly, Oscar nominee Lou Diamond Phillips (Stand and Deliver) as Gil, Aurora Perrineau (Jem and the Holograms) as Dani, Halston Sage (Before I Fall) as Ainsley Whitly and Frank Harts (The Leftovers) as JT.
Chris Fedak (Chuck) and Sam Sklaver (Deception) created the series and serve as executive producers alongside Berlanti Productions’ Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter as well as director Lee Toland Krieger. Fox Entertainment is a co-producer.
