CW’s ‘Cult’ Episode 5: “The Kiss”

On this week’s CW series Cult, “The Kiss,” Jeff receives news that one of Nate’s friends might be planning something at an upcoming Cult fan costume party, so Jeff and Skye attend the party dressed as Billy and Kelly. At the party, Skye’s drink is spiked with a hallucinogenic drug similar to a drug used on the television show Cult. Sakelik warns Jeff that he might be in over his head. Also, at the party, Roger meets mysterious stranger named Stuart. Meanwhile, on the television show, Kelly marries Billy in a flashback scene.

The series is based on investigative journalist Jeff Sefton, who has learned to laugh off his brother Nate’s relentless string of obsessions, especially his latest rant that a hit TV show intends to harm him. However, when his brother mysteriously disappears, Jeff takes Nate’s paranoia seriously, and in the process uncovers the dark underworld of the TV show “Cult” and its rabid fans. The only person who seems willing to help Jeff with his investigation is Skye, a young research assistant for “Cult,” who has also started to grow suspicious of the increasingly dark happenings surrounding the show. The fictitious show, centered on the cat-and-mouse game between charismatic cult leader Billy Grimm and LAPD detective Kelly Collins, has become an obsession for its viewers – and now some of its devotees seem to be taking their fixation to deadly extremes in the real world. As Jeff and Skye dig deeper into the fan world, they discover that the gruesome plot twists on television are much more than fantasy for some very unfortunate people. The hardcore fans of “Cult” would kill to see what happens next…

Cult, “The Kiss” episode 5 airs Tuesday, March 22, at 9pm on The CW.
