Last week’s episode of The Alienist was filled with revelations. Commissioner Roosevelt has figured out the corruption within the police department is compromising his case and as such, Captain Connor was stripped of his badge. The man we once thought was the killer no longer fits the newly formulated profile and Dr. Laszlo Kreizler has figured out that he seems to commit his murders on Catholic holy days.
In Monday night’s new episode of The Alienist title Ascension, it’s a race against time. Can Kreizler, John Moore and Sara Howard figure out who the murderer is before strikes again? And what’s up with Kreizler’s growing obsession over the case and the mind of the killer? Sara may have figured out a significant clue to Kreizler’s past! Check out the official synopsis below as well as a brief promo and sneak peek clip of Sara Howard informing John Moore of her findings relating to Kreizler’s past:
“The team hatches a plan to catch the killer. Moore (Luke Evans) checks in on a friend. Kreizler (Daniel Brühl) faces his own self-doubt about the investigation. Roosevelt (Brian Geraghty) attends an event with the city’s elite. Sara (Dakota Fanning) looks into Kreizler’s past. Connor (David Wilmot) acts on impulse.”
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.”
