The final season of AMC's "The Son," continues on Saturday, May 4th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the all-new episode, "Ten Dollars and a Plucked Goose," After a devastating attack, Young Eli must help the Comanches regroup in 1852. In 1915, Pete's return causes fractures in the McCullough family.
Based on Philipp Meyer's New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel of the same name, season two of The Son concludes the journey of the iconic "First Son of Texas." Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan) will stop at nothing to secure his legacy against the backdrop of the nascent oil industry of 1917. His tools are deceit, fraud and murder -- weapons he wields with the effortless skill of the Comanche warrior he once was. But the biggest challenge he faces will be quelling a civil war under his own roof, triggered by his idealistic son Pete (Henry Garrett). Eli knows the ultimate prize of American dynasty is nearly in his grasp, and time is running out. Meanwhile, in 1851, young Eli (Jacob Lofland) is now married and a respected warrior among the Comanches, but tragedy forces him into a leadership position as the vast Comanche empire crumbles around him. Broadening the scope, a 1988 timeline is introduced, bringing the McCullough saga into the more immediate past. Here, at age 85, Eli's granddaughter Jeanne Anne McCullough (Lois Smith) is confronted with a long-buried family secret.
Season 2 of BBC America's hit "Killing Eve," continues on Sunday, May 5th at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the all-new episode, "Smell Ya Later," the MI6 team make a pact with the devil in order to get information from The Ghost. A visitor from Broadmoor comes with a dire warning. And Eve and Villanelle find themselves closer than ever.
"Killing Eve" is the story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act: Eve, an MI6 operative, and Villanelle, the beautiful, psychopathic assassin that she has been tasked to find.
"A Discovery of Witches" continues with an all-new episode on Sunday, May 5th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In this week's episode, Gillian pays a price for her disloyalty to Diana. The vampires study witch DNA and the fall-out threatens the fragile equilibrium between creatures. The vampires focus on ending Matthew and Diana's relationship, whatever the cost.
Brilliant historian Diana Bishop is a witch denying her own heritage. When she unexpectedly calls up an ancient, bewitched manuscript from Oxford's Bodleian library, one that was thought by the creatures to be lost and could answer the mysteries of their existence, she finds herself thrown into the heart of a dangerous mystery - and into the path of the enigmatic geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont. Matthew is driven to solve the looming threat of the creatures' decline and extinction, but their unlikely alliance to find the book before it falls into the wrong hands - and their deepening relationship - threatens to violate age-old taboos and shake the fragile peace that exists between the species.
"Into the Badlands" bows on Monday, May 6th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with, "Seven Strike as One." Sunny, The Widow, and Bajie lead the charge against Pilgrim, as he attempts to gain ultimate control of the Badlands, while M.K. seeks revenge on The Widow. The final episode is written by Matt Lambert and directed by Paco Cabezas.
As we enter the final chapter of "Into the Badlands", an imprisoned Bajie warns Sunny that Pilgrim can't be trusted. But with his son's life on the line, Sunny struggles with his decision to help Pilgrim unlock the Meridian Chamber. Meanwhile, M.K., still reeling from the revelation that Sunny killed his mother, is hellbent on revenge. Kidnapped by The Master, the Widow is forced to confront her past. Moon meanwhile races to save Lydia from impending death after she risked her life for his on the battlefield. As the last episodes unfold long buried secrets will be revealed, new alliances will be forged and the saga will climax in an epic battle to end all battles.
