What has Ainsley done on Prodigal Son?
Caution: There are spoilers in this post from Prodigal Son Season 2, Episode 6.
We need to talk about Ainsley Whitly. She turned up at Malcolm’s and not in a good way. What has she done on Prodigal Son?
We’ve known Ainsley has a problem for a while. In the first season finale, she blacked out and killed Endicott in cold blood. Okay, it was partially to protect Malcolm, but he knew that it wouldn’t stand if the cops turned up. So, he told Ainsley he killed Endicott and they covered up the murder.
However, Ainsley knows that isn’t fully the truth. Her memory is hazy, but she knows something isn’t right.
At the end of Prodigal Son Season 2, Episode 6, Malcolm told Ainsley the truth. If only that was the only problem they had to deal with.
Ainsley didn’t just turn to Malcolm for the truth. She came to him because she has a new problem. She is covered in blood that isn’t her own and has no idea how she’s got it.

Who has Ainsley hurt on Prodigal Son Season 2, Episode 6?
We’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to see how this plays out, but that doesn’t stop us from speculating. Who has Ainsley hurt?
Usually, it’s someone we know. With how Ainsley reacted around Endicott, it’s likely that someone threatened to hurt her, her brother, or even another member of her family and she lashed out.
There hasn’t been anyone we know who has done that just yet. One possibility could be the racist cop, but she didn’t have enough of a connection to JT to take action for him.
This is where secrets can come out. Malcolm wasn’t there to cover up the body for Ainsley this time. There’s a chance whoever’s body it is will be found, and that could lead to a connection to Endicott.
It’s also going to lead to some sort of guilt trip for Malcolm. If he told her the truth earlier, could he have prevented this? After all, clearly Ainsley needs some sort of help to diagnose her mental illness.
