A DRUG-INDUCED HOMICIDE FORCES MALCOLM TO RE-THINK HIS FEARS
Malcolm gets his dream interview opportunity when the NYPD zeroes in on one of his and Martin’s favorite psychologists, Dr. Elaine Brown (guest star Sakina Jaffrey), who may be involved in a homicide linked to an LSD-laced psychology trial. Meanwhile, as his night terrors continue to evolve, Malcolm checks in with his trusted childhood therapist to discuss new theories on what exactly he witnessed as a child, and the consequences of Malcolm’s visits with The Surgeon begin to add up when Gil, Jessica and Ainsley catch wind that he has been seeing his father again.

In Prodigal Son, Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne) has a gift. He knows how killers think, how their minds work. Why? Back in the 1990s, his father was one of the best, a notorious serial killer called “The Surgeon.” That’s why Bright is the best criminal psychologist around; murder is the family business.
Prodigal Son is produced by Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions and FOX Entertainment with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Chris Fedak, Sam Sklaver and Lee Toland Krieger.
