Kyle Barnes has been plagued by demonic possession all his life and now he needs answers. Unfortunately, what he uncovers along the way could bring about the end of life on Earth as we know it.[2]

Summary :

Betsy Austin began yelling at her daughter for dating a man 4 years older than her. After she ran off, she told her son Joshua to stop eating as it was time for bed. She was shocked when she saw Joshua biting through his own finger.

After a game of poker, Reverend Anderson was contacted by Betsy who told Anderson that "it happened" to Joshua.

Kyle was awaken by a knock on his door. On his way down, he had flashbacks of an event that happened to his mom many years ago. He was greeted at the door by his adoptive sister, Megan Holt who came to check up on Kyle. Megan offered to help him out and get some real food but Kyle kept telling Megan to leave.

Anderson made an attempt to command the demon to leave the child. He told Betsy she was a distraction and told her to leave until he was done but she refused and stayed. After believing Anderson was hurting Joshua, Betsy went to stop but ended up being kicked in the face by her son.

Outside a local grocery store, Kyle and Anderson cross paths for the first time in years. Anderson tells Kyle about a demon possessing a boy and asked if he could help. Megan then drove Kyle to her house, though Kyle wasn't too pleased. When Megan's husband arrived, he wasn't so pleased to see Kyle either and got into an argument with his wife. Kyle took this opportunity to slip away and walk home.

The following day, Kyle received another knock on his door. Megan had come once again but only to drop off the groceries, leaving a note saying "weirdo". Kyle used the phone that was bought to call a woman, though he never responded and quickly smashed the phone.

Kyle then decided to take up Anderson's offer and went to pay Joshua a visit. When he went to the possessed Joshua, the boy stated that he knew Kyle and that he know's he is one of many outcasts. The boy jumped Kyle, much to Anderson's surprise, claiming it was nothing he had ever seen before.

Kyle and Anderson had a discussion on the porch. Anderson told Kyle he was once married and had a child. He told Kyle that he was also once possessed by a demon but commanded it to leave. They then returned to the room for more answers.

Kyle then remembered that her mother never liked the light while being possessed. Kyle ripped the curtains open and the boy dived into the shadows. Kyle went to expose the boy to more light and got into an altercation with the boy. The blood from the altercation began to burn the boy and soon enough, the demon was released. Betsy came to check what was happening and was glad to see her boy alright.

After a misunderstanding, the police release Kyle, much to Officer Holt's dismay. Kyle told Anderson about what he had done to his wife but regrets that no one would ever believe his story. Kyle then vows to find out why demons are out to hurt him.....

Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta are on the verge of seeing their Image Comics series "Outcast" become the writer's next big TV project. And in a whirlwing casting announcement, Cinemax has added six new players who themselves are outcasts from TV's past.

Joining previously announced stars Patrick Fugit as haunted investigator Kyle Barnes, Philip Glenister and Gabriel Bateman will be a bevy of co-stars from network dramas, as TV Line announced:

  • "The Office" star David Denman joins as Mark Holter, the husband of Kyle’s sister Megan.

  • Grace Zabriskie of "Big Love" will be Mildred, "one of the old guard of parishioners at Anderson’s church. Full of spit and vinegar, Mildred lives alone and says what’s on her mind."



  • Catherine Dent from "The Shield" takes the part of Janet Anderson, "the ex-wife of Reverend Anderson. Their marriage was shattered by Anderson’s obsession with battling the forces of darkness, but she still can’t help but feel affection and sympathy for the man she once loved, the father of the her child."



  • And "Star Trek: The Next Generation's" Data, Brent Spiner, will play Sidney, who "appears in Rome soon after Kyle and Reverend Anderson successfully exorcise little Joshua Austin, his dapper appearance and smiling demeanor hide a malevolence."
