Prodigal Son fans are counting down the days until the return of their favorite profiler Malcolm Bright and the best NYPD detective squad returns! They are also anticipating what new drama awaits the Whitly family and FOX’s new synopsis of the second episode in season 2 give a few hints as to what fans can expect:


When a priest is found murdered in his place of worship, Bright grapples with its effect on his own trauma. Martin, trying to help with the case, consults his fellow inmate, Friar Pete (guest star Christian Borle), whom he learns is keeping a secret of his own. Meanwhile, Ainsley grows worried that Jessica is keeping something from her regarding her relationship with Gil. And Dani, Gil and Malcolm rally behind JT, urging him to speak to his union rep about the discrimination he’s been facing.

The confirmed guest cast list also confirms the return of Mr. David! Guest cast include Esau Pritchett as Mr. David; Damian Young as Jonah Shaw; Michael Potts as Dr. Brandon Marsh; Armando Acevedo as Hector; Adam Langdon as Norman Goode; and Melissa Van Der Schyff as Mrs. Goode. There have been a few glimpses of this case in recent promos and FOX’s images from “Speak of the Devil” raise even more questions around this season’s drama. Check them out below!
