Last week’s episode of The Alienist ended with a surprise reveal. We FINALLY got to see the face of the killer responsible for the grizzly murders plaguing New York City.
This week, while the team continues to learn all the can about this killer with the silver smile and his motives, it appears that the underlying affection between Sara Howard and John Moore may be growing. Check out the official synopsis below as well as a brief promo and sneak peek clip of John Moore and Sara Howard sharing a flirtatious moment from Monday night’s episode titled Hildebrandt’s Starling:

About The Alienist: “The Alienist is an upcoming American drama television series based on the novel of the same name by Caleb Carr. The psychological thriller drama is set in 1896 when a series of gruesome murders of boy prostitutes has gripped the city. Newly appointed top cop Teddy Roosevelt calls upon Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a criminal psychologist — aka alienist — and newspaper illustrator John Moore to conduct the investigation in secret. Joining them in the probe is Sara Howard, a headstrong secretary at Police Headquarters.”
