With the disappearance of his younger brother Nate, investigative reporter Jeff Sefton is now going down the “Cult” rabbit hole and discovering the power and influence that cult television can have on its audience. There’s something not quite right about Nate’s favorite show and after making a contact on “Cult”‘s production staff, he’ll stop at nothing to piece together what exactly happened to his brother. Just where will Jeff’s journey take him? Can he go about his investigation unnoticed by the rest of the “Cult” staff, all of whom would rather the action behind the curtain stay that way?
Listed below are the dates, titles, and descriptions for the next two episodes of Cult.
Tuesday, February 26th – “In the Blood”
Jeff (Matt Davis) enlists tech-savvy E.J. (guest star Stacy Farber “Degrassi: The Next Generation”) to help in his search for his brother Nate (guest star James Pizzinato “Alcatraz”). Skye (Jessica Lucas) finally reveals to Jeff that she took the researcher job on “Cult” to learn more about Steven Rae. Meanwhile, at the production office, associate producer Peter Grey (guest star Ben Hollingsworth) brushes off Skye’s concerns that some of the “Cult” fans believe there are hidden messages embedded in the show. On the television show, Kelly (Alona Tal) and Paz (guest star Kadeem Hardison, “A Different World”) discover a body buried vertically, and Kelly believes that this might be a message from Billy (Robert Knepper).
Tuesday, March 5th – “Being Billy”
Jeff finds a surprise visitor in Nate’s apartment who tells him about a dangerous on-campus game that Nate had been hosting known as “Being Billy,” which involves role-playing scenes from past “Cult” episodes. Jeff and Skye follow clues that might explain the next scene the players will try to recreate. Meanwhile, E.J. searches Nate’s laptop and finds that he’s been active online and sent a cryptic email to a hidden recipient list. On the television show, Kelly confronts Billy.
Cult airs Tuesdays at 9:00 on The CW.
