Tyrant: Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, 8 p.m. MT, 9 p.m. CT
“Fathers and Sons”
Jamal (Ashraf Barhom) grows more paranoid as he begins to question Rami's (Keon Alexander) loyalty. Meanwhile, Barry (Adam Rayner) wonders how much the palace's support means for his survival; and Sammy (Noah Silver) is saddened by Abdul's (Mehdi Dehbi) death, but decides to help the insurgents fight the Army of the Caliphate.
Gigi's (Elizabeth Gillies) a hit in New York City, which leads to the revelation that the Heathens are still popular in Belgium.
Lina (Judy Greer) tries to be a cool mom; and Russ (Nat Faxon) and AJ (Brett Gelman) have a night on the town.
Eph (Corey Stoll) alters his appearance so he can leave the city, which makes Nora (Mia Maestro) a reluctant parent for Zach (Ben Hyland). Meanwhile, Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) and Nora negotiate with Justine (Samantha Mathis) to get Fet (Kevin Durand) out of jail.
Barry (Adam Rayner) can’t hide the truth any longer and tells Molly (Jennifer Finnigan) that he's alive. Meanwhile, an increasingly suspicious Jamal (Ashraf Barhom) thinks Khalil (Adam Rayner) is the only trustworthy person in his inner circle; and Ahmed (Cameron Gharaee) makes plans to escape with Nusrat (Sibylla Deen).
Gigi (Elizabeth Gillies) is adamant that the whole band visit a renowned music therapist.
Plans for a family vacation force Russ (Nat Faxon) and Lina (Judy Greer) into some extreme behaviour.
Kelly (Natalie Brown) goes after Nora (Mia Maestro) and Zach (Ben Hyland). Meanwhile, Eph (Corey Stoll) hatches a plan to create and deploy a biological weapon; and Gus (Miguel Gomez) finds an unlikely ally in Angel (Joaquin Cosio).
Illusions of Grandeur: Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, 7:30 p.m. MT, 8:30 p.m. CT
Back home in Toronto after performing magic all across North America, Zack reflects on some of his favourite moments from the trip and performs a series of illusions for his toughest crowd yet – the home viewer.
“Odd Man Out”
Definitions of masculinity are ever evolving, but some push the boundaries to breaking point. In Australia, a university professor nurses nostalgia by taking his plush animals out with him to dinner. In America, a husband swaps his legs for a tail and joins other “merfolk” by swimming in mermaid costumes. Over in England, an out-of-work actor transforms into a London lion and prowls the streets dressed as an animal; and in Italy, a man finds it thrilling to be physically overpowered by muscular women.
For some, fear and fun are interchangeable experiences. In Sweden, foreigners and tourists alike do their best to swallow their fear and eat one of the world’s foulest smelling foods, for guts and glory. Over in England, a fan of graveyards and morbid images decorates his house with mementos of death to best appreciate life. In Poland, an innovative chef creates creepy-crawly cuisine with a menu of insects. In the United Kingdom, a dentist turns cop for a day and finds herself at the front line of a violent mob – all for the thrill of the fight.
