“Time to face facts, kid. The Surgeon is back,” Gil (Lou Diamond Phillips) tells his mortified profiler Malcolm (Tom Payne) as they deal with the unhappy news that Malcolm’s serial-killer dad, Martin “The Surgeon” Whitly (Michael Sheen), has escaped from his madhouse asylum prison along with two accomplices. Martin insists he’s changed his murderous spots, but does anyone believe him? Not his ex, Jessica (Bellamy Young), having barely recovered from her stiletto defense when she meets and bonds with a dejected Dr. Capshaw (Catherine Zeta-Jones), over—what else—hooch. Jessica gets it: This improbably enjoyable thriller goes down even better after a couple of cocktails.

The big day has finally arrived. Serial killer Dr. Martin Whitly, A.K.A. the Surgeon, puts his plan into action to make his escape from prison. Dr. Vivian Capshaw (Catherine Zeta-Jones) starts to become suspicious, but her romantic relationship with Martin complicates things. Also suspicious? Martin’s ex-wife Jessica (Bellamy Young), whose research for her tell-all book brings up old secrets. While Jessica delves into all things Surgeon-related, Malcolm (Tom Payne) takes the healthy step of avoiding his father, and even gets some sleep because of it, allowing him to properly focus on the case of the week. When an agoraphobic man is the only witness to the brutal murder of a young woman, Malcolm works with him to try to catch the killer. As the hour of Martin’s escape approaches, he does everything he can to try to reach Malcolm. Will Martin’s plan work? Don’t miss this climactic episode of the thriller drama to find out.
