"Prodigal Son" Episode 11 "Alone Time": Is Bright's Family His Fatal Flaw? [PREVIEW]

FOX's crime procedural/serial killer thriller Prodigal Son returns Monday for the second-half of its first season run, and considering the midseason finale ended with Bright (Tom Payne) kidnapped by the "Junkyard Killer" (Michael Raymond-James) you'd understand why viewers are more than interested in seeing how it all plays out.

Oh… we left out an important fact: the "Junkyard Killer" also happens to be a protégé of Dr. Whitley's (Michael Sheen). With the FBI and NYPD moving in, we have to wonder: does Bright want to be saved – or is this the kind of "Alone Time" he needs to learn the truth about his father – and himself.

Here's a look at the newest preview for the return of Prodigal Son – one that creates an even deeper level of dread than what we've seen from the first-half… and that's saying a lot:
