AND Prodigal Son shows more of the consequences of Jessica and her children leaving the anonymity of new names to separate their lives from the serial killer Surgeon, Martin. I liked seeing someone from the past rise up wanting revenge …
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.
Martin killed countless women and with Jessica giving a reward for catching John, the former partner of her ex-husband, she ended up drawing the attention of a new murderer, who did not want media and much less money, he only wanted revenge for everything the surgeon did.
The way Malcolm and Gil conduct the investigation is interesting, when Dani and he need to stay on television to guide Ainsley we see the reporter as an unparalleled force.
Gradually we see deaths happening and everything seems to have no connection, except Jessica, who ends up being on the man’s target, but when she and Malcolm unite to investigate and end up going to Martin, since the killer asked her to kill the ex, things get more tense.
Martin recognizes the victims, former co-workers and their only link is the death of a woman. In the end we find out that the killer is a grieving man who believes that Martin murdered his wife as part of the Surgeon’s plans … Only he makes it clear that as a doctor he never killed a patient.
It was interesting to see these twists and turns in the lives of the characters, but the series needs to focus more on things, it is a little disconnected and even if we like a few moments, sometimes the series makes us leave it a bit aside.
The episode ended with Malcolm’s mystery to Gil, as he or Jessica stabbed Martin deadly… Did the prodigal son have the courage? Or did Jessica decide to avenge everything that happened? Prodigal Son leaves the question in the air.
