Now, the father Martin Whitely is in prison. However, the major mystery comes along after 10 years when another serial killer starts killing people using Martin’s method.

This situation brings back stress to Malcolm as he finds himself connected to his father again which he clearly despises.
Prodigal son season 1 finale explained!
For the most part, Prodigal son season 1 finale expresses the idea that Malcolm has its father’s qualities of sociopathic tendencies. After Jessica bails Malcolm out, he escapes and joins Edrisa. On the other hand, Endicott plays with the system to transfer “The surgeon” to Rikers Island. Malcolm and Ainsley finally confronted their father, to tell the truth about “owing to it to Endicott.” However, it turns out he had nothing to do with him.
Gil warns Malcolm to leave the town as fast as he can. Malcolm before leaving finds Eve’s sister Sophie and confronts her of the doubt that she is the killer. But, he instead took the blame which left the audience in grief.
Malcolm out of his sociopathic behavior puts a gun to Endicott’s side. Before Malcolm shot, Ainsley killed Endicott by slitting his throat and further stabbed him out of anger.
At the very end, “The Surgeon” comes to rescue and tells his son that he has a plan.
In conclusion, the Prodigal Son season 2 is going to be a great comeback for the Surgeon indeed. Up until now, the audience viewed the story from Malcolm’s end. Now, it is time to see what “The Surgeon” has to say of the murders. Till then, stay tuned for more!
