Prodigal Son - Sun and Fun

The search for the Surgeon (Michael Sheen) continues as Malcom (Tom Payne) is able to deduce Dr. Vivian Capshaw's (Catherine Zeta-Jones) involvement in the serial killer's escape, and that she in fact kidnapped Martin rather than the other way around, although the profiler has difficulty selling the concept to the rest of the team. (Vivian escalates to full cray-cray here.) The penultimate episode of the season quickly goes from a manhunt for an escaped serial killer to a rescue mission, at least in Malcom's mind. Despite her doubts, Dani (Aurora Perrineau) stays by Malcom's side (up until the point that Capshaw kidnaps him as well). The episode ends in a cliffhanger with Martin slipping through the law's fingers once more (with a new traveling companion) setting up the season's finale (which, given FOX cancelling the show likely marks it as the series' finale as well).
