Prodigal Son S02E09 Preview: Martin & Dr. Capshaw Prove Deadly Pair

After a tension-filled season return last week, it appears Hoxley's (Alan Cumming) at ease with how Endicott's death can be explained- which is a huge help to Malcolm (Tom Payne), Ainsley (Halston Sage), and Jessica's (Bellamy Young) sanity. So what's there left to worry about in the next episode of FOX's Prodigal Son? Oh, not much- just online vigilante groups, Jessica taking a mental deep-dive to write a book (what could go wrong?), and Martin (Michael Sheen) and Dr. Capshaw's (Catherine Zeta-Jones) relationship could prove very "freeing" for "The Surgeon"- as you're about to see from the following preview.

Here's a look at what's ahead with this Tuesday's episode "The Killabustas"- followed by a preview of what's still to come for the second half of Season 2:

Prodigal Son Season 2, Episode 9 "The Killabustas": Despite Gil's fatherly concerns, Bright throws himself into a new case involving an escalating killer that has Edrisa's online vigilante group, known as the "Killabustas," trying to stop him. Meanwhile, Jessica realizes that she must dive deep into her past traumas in order to write a book and may need Gil's help to do it. Then, Martin's relationship with Dr. Capshaw intensifies. Guest Cast: Esau Pritchett as Mr. David; Christian Borle as Friar Pete; Maria Dizzia as Sasha Geller; Steven Boyer as Ashton Colter; Michael Luwoye as Blaze

PRODIGAL SON follows MALCOLM BRIGHT (Tom Payne), a criminal profiler with a rare talent for getting inside the minds of killers. He learned how they think because his father, DR. MARTIN WHITLY (Michael Sheen), was a notorious serial killer known as "The Surgeon." Now he's using his twisted genius to help the NYPD solve their most puzzling murders. Bright's team, led by his longtime mentor, NYPD Lieutenant GIL ARROYO (Lou Diamond Phillips), includes Detectives DANI POWELL (Aurora Perrineau), JT TARMEL (Frank Harts) and medical examiner DR. EDRISA TANAKA (Keiko Agena).

Season Two picks up with Bright's personal life in disarray after his sister AINSLEY's (Halston Sage) shocking actions in the Season One finale. Now, he must "take care" of her and protect his mother JESSICA WHITLY (Bellamy Young) from a secret that could tear the family apart all over again! Further complicating matters, Martin seeks to deepen his relationship with Bright, his prodigal son, but forging this bond leads to shocking twists and revelations.
