Prodigal Son Season 2 E10 Preview: Malcolm's Looking for Some Distance

Heading into this week's episode of FOX's Tom Payne and Michael Sheen-starring Prodigal Son, our fascinating father-and-son duo are on two different trajectories. Malcolm (Payne) is looking to deep-dive into his work and put all of the Endicott business behind him (good luck with that)- and that includes keeping a greater distance from Martin (Sheen). One huge problem with that? Martin's working Dr. Capshaw (Catherine Zeta-Jones) so he can have a "family reunion" of sorts. So you see the problem? Dumping a whole lot of fuel on that fire is Jessica's (Bellamy Young) plan to start working on an intimate memoir of her life, with Gil's (Lou Diamond Phillips) help. If you're wondering what deep, dark secrets might be unearthed then we're all on the same page. Now here's a look at a preview for "Exit Strategy":

Prodigal Son Season 2, Episode 10 "Exit Strategy": As Malcolm distances himself from Martin, Jessica does the opposite, diving head-first into the past for the sake of her tell-all book. Meanwhile, Martin is desperate to get in touch with his son ahead of his imminent plans, as Dr. Vivian Capshaw grows increasingly suspicious. Meanwhile, the NYPD investigates a crime of passion.

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.
