CULT - TUESDAYS 8
When his brother mysteriously disappears, Jeff enlists Skye Yarrow (portrayed by Jessica Lucas), a young research assistant working on “Cult,” to help with his investigation into the dark underworld of the TV show and its rabid fans. Meanwhile, in the parallel worlds of the show-within-a-show, the cult’s ruthless leader, Billy Grimm, is played by actor Roger Reeves, a man whose primary agenda is winning back his former follower and lover, Kelly Collins, played by actress Marti Gerritsen. Since escaping from the cult, Kelly has become an LAPD detective who finds herself drawn back into an investigation of the group’s activities as she struggles to keep Billy at a safe distance.
As the television show grows in popularity, cast members Roger and Marti begin to feel the effects in their “real” lives. Jason Ensler directed the episode written by Rockne S. O’Bannon.
Jeff enlists tech-savvy E.J. (guest star Stacy Farber “Degrassi: The Next Generation”) to help in his search for his brother Nate (guest star James Pizzinato “Alcatraz”). Skye finally reveals to Jeff that she took the researcher job on “Cult” to learn more about Steven Rae. Meanwhile, at the production office, associate producer Peter Grey (guest star Ben Hollingsworth) brushes off Skye’s concerns that some of the “Cult” fans believe there are hidden messages embedded in the show. On the television show, Kelly and Paz (guest star Kadeem Hardison, “A Different World”) discover a body buried vertically, and Kelly believes that this might be a message from Billy.
Sam Hill directed the episode written by Rockne S. O’Bannon.
