The Patient is a thriller developed and written by Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields for FX on Hulu starring Steve Carrell in the role of a psychiatrist named Alan Strauss, a man who’s in the process of mourning his late wife. Though he maintains composure on the outside, he’s profoundly stricken by the loss of his wife. Strauss must treat a serial killer and murderer. Let’s take a look at The Patient Episode 4.
The cast has Steve Carrell in the lead, who you might recall in his roles in “The Office,” and Domhall Gleeson, who you might recall from the Harry Potter movies, in Anna Karenina and Ex Machina. We have Andrew Leeds, David Alan Grier and Laura Niemi joining them in the cast.
What Is The Patient About?
In The Patient, a psychotherapist named Alan Strauss (Steve Carell) finds himself in captivity after his patient Sam Fournier (Domhnall Gleeson) decides to undergo more intense therapy to address his serial killer tendencies. Strauss challenges Fournier to share his traumas and set aside his desire to kill in an effort to gain access to Fournier’s mind. Fournier is searching for a way to be set free and unhinged. However, taking care of his patient in an uncomfortable setting causes the therapist to start confronting his own family issues, such as the death of his wife and his estranged son. This miniseries may be exactly what you’re looking for if you want a suspenseful story to watch next that features one of Hollywood’s most beloved gaffes.

The Patient Trailer
The Patient Trailer Breakdown
If the idea of a therapist being under the control of a patient who is a serial killer isn’t horrifying enough, seeing it play out in the series trailer is an entirely different matter. Before his murderous obsession is revealed, viewers can tell that Sam Fournier is sitting down for a consultation with Alan Strauss because of his rambling demeanor. After dealing with the loss of his beloved wife, Strauss starts to wonder about his own mental health as these routine meetings continue to take place in an office.
Strauss makes every effort to maintain his composure while in a life-or-death situation as Fournier turns the tables and controls the therapist/patient dynamic by kidnapping him. The therapist is attempting to work through his own internal problems as well as maintaining his patient’s composure and preventing him from acting on his serial killer tendencies.
