‘Prodigal Son’ Puts the Focus on Relationships — Plus, What’s Next?
[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Prodigal Son Season 2, Episode 9, “The Killabustas.”]
The spotlight is put on the relationships of Prodigal Son in the April 20 episode. And it’s not just the already established or teased ones, but also a new one, between medical examiner Dr. Edrisa Tanaka (Keiko Agena) and a member of her web-sleuthing group, the Killabustas, Blaze (Michael Luwoye).
But there is a crime to solve as well: The Vulture, as named by Edrisa’s group, graduates from killing birds to murdering and dismembering one of the Killabustas. Blaze is a suspect, at first, but they soon realize it’s another member of the group, Ashton (Steven Boyer). Edrisa even gets to be part of stopping him and stabs him (with a knife from her new beau) as he aims a gun at profiler Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne).
“It was hard for her because she’s such a trusting person. Edrisa’s so open,” Agena tells TV Insider of that moment. “It’s difficult for her to be facing someone who she trusted so much and to realize that he was the person that they had been looking for this whole time. That betrayal is almost overwhelming.”
While Agena thinks this experience has changed her character, she points out that Edrisa has been “covering for things all this time,” so don’t expect to see anything too different from her on-screen.
Scroll down as we take a look at the key moments for the relationships (romantic and platonic) in this episode and season and check out scoop from Agena about a scene that didn’t make the cut.
