Heading into the second-half of TNT's The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, the killings continue as Sara Howard (Dakota Fanning), Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl), and John Moore (Luke Evans) are stretched to their limits to catch the murderer. In this week's "Belly of the Beast" and "Memento Mori"Sara looks outside the team for help as the pieces of the puzzle begin to take shape- but will it be in time to stop the killer from striking close to home? But even with a suspect at hand, another missing child will find Sara working with a former adversary- while Kreizler faces a personal and professional crisis. Yet through it all, there is this feeling among our trio that none of this is what it appears to be:
The Alienist: Angel of Darkness season 2, episode 5 "Belly of the Beast": After the horrific murder of a Lying-In Hospital employee, the team are now hot on the heels of the murderer. Sara (Dakota Fanning) enlists the help of Joanna (Brittany Batchelder) to tail their prime suspect. Sara, Kreizler (Daniel Brühl) and Moore (Luke Evans) try and put the pieces together, but they find that not even Sara's office is out of the killer's reach.
The Alienist: Angel of Darkness season 2, episode 6 "Memento Mori": Sara (Dakota Fanning) and Moore (Luke Evans) return to the killer's abandoned house in search of new information about their suspect.
