In Prodigal Son Season 2 Episode 5 we look into Ainsley’s past showing her how far she could go to win a competition. And this is followed by her attempts to catch a serial killer before her brother, Malcolm. Jessica who now knew what Ainsley was capable of, was worried as she was diving deeper into serial killer-like cases. Which makes her think Ainsley will turn out like Martin, so she confronts him. She claims to take her away so that he won’t be able to see her again. Meanwhile, Malcolm and Ainsley both separately head to the Etiquette School where the victims were from. Ainsley too was one of the students there in the past.
Meanwhile, as the victim’s eye was replaced by doll eyes, Gill and JT go to the local doll makers. Surprisingly the doll maker, Falvey they meet is the one who used to make dolls for the Etiquette School, and therefore he is caught. But as it turns out, he wasn’t the culprit. During this, Ainsley follows a lead to find the third victim where she goes live for reporting the crime. Later, with some help from Edrissa Malcolm is able to fit Etiquette School head, Ms. Windsor, as the possible suspect.
