FOX's crime procedural/serial killer thriller Prodigal Son is back this week – and for those of you who've been following Bleeding Cool's resident show expert Margo Staten's review of the season know, Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne) and the "Junkyard Killer" (Michael Raymond-James) had some pretty brutal "Alone Time" together. Apparently, all to see who Dr. Whitly's aka The Surgeon's (Michael Sheen) "true favorite" was.
Which brings us to this week's episode "Internal Affairs", which Staten previewed for us over the weekend – but FOX has been kind enough to release a new, last-minute preview. In the clip below, Jessica (Bellamy Young) hires a nurse to help Malcolm through his recovery – and asks Dani (Aurora Perrineau) to get through to her son:
