Prodigal Son Webisode Review: Look at The Surgeon's Day Proves Winner

"Prodigal Son": Aurora Perrineau Offers Behind the (Crime) Scenes Tour

So FOX's Prodigal Son isn't exactly pulling its punches (though "need to stab" would be more appropriate) as it builds towards its season finale. Clearly, Eve's (Molly Griggs) got a helluva' lot more of a Whitly Family "bond" than we first thought – leaving Ainsley (Halston Sage) to do a little deep-digging into Eve's past to […]
