Prodigal Son did a very unstable season, but overall it was a very interesting debut, and in its last episode the situation of many characters changed a lot, but it still seems like a conclusion too fast for a season that had several episodes fillers.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.
Endicott managed to outwit everyone, but in the case of Eddie’s death the culprit was not Malcolm and we found out in the end that he was innocent, since the one who killed him was The Girl from the Chest, who upon discovering the murder of his sister, he went there to get revenge, but he didn’t have Malcolm investigating. She made it clear that she remembers him as Garoto do Porão.
Jessica is scared of Endicott and he makes an appointment with her, but Gil’s arrival takes him out of it, but he doesn’t act alone, he tells others to do things for him, and with Jessica seeing her love being stabbed and getting between life and death, you need to pretend and then run.
Malcolm and Ainsley’s encounter with Martin was revealing, as the Surgeon is suffering threats inside the new prison and his daughter gives him a shake, as he is too smart to handle it, while he makes it clear to Malcolm that he must kill Endicott .
Then a while later Malcolm needs to run to his mother’s house and there he comes face to face with Ainsley being threatened by Endicott. The trio’s discussion is intense and interesting, while Martin manages to get rid of the people who wanted to hurt him in prison. I liked the end where Malcolm doesn’t have the courage to do anything with Endicott and he ends up being taken by surprise by Ainsley, who cuts his throat.
Prodigal Son reverses the situation where we think Malcolm would be affected by his upbringing, being able to kill someone, but they break that by putting Ainsley taking action, but not remembering how he did it. The series dragged on a lot, it could have been shorter, and if you screwed up in 13 episodes you would tell this story in a calm way, without creating bellies.
