On this week’s CW series Cult, “Suffer the Children,” E.J. slips Jeff a copy of Sakelik’s police personnel file which reveals that Sakelik was taken into custody by Child Protective Services 25 years ago after being found with other abandoned children at a house in Arrowhead. Jeff and Skye locate the house and question the owner, Annabelle. Sakelik tracks Jeff and Skye to the house and they barely escape with their lives. Stuart continues to befriend Roger. Meanwhile, on the television show, Kelly finds a lock of Meadow’s hair in the trunk of Billy’s car.
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…
