Charlie from Next Time On The Patient is the sixth season ...

This article is a sneak peek at The Patient Season 1, Episode 6, 'Charlie,' and may contain spoilers for previous episodes.

The Patient is the latest Hulu FX series developed by the same group that created The Americans, which includes an extremely threatening Steve Carell as Dr. Alan Strauss, a therapist who is captured by one of his patients, Sam (Domnhall Gleeson), a serial killer who wants Alan's help in curing him.

As Alan and Sam get to know one another in the most dangerous of situations, what follows is a taut chamber piece. Can Alan keep Sam from killing again? Will Sam direct his rage towards Alan? These are the main concerns we'll be focusing on in the next few weeks.

Recap of Episode 5 of The Patient

Sam's progress hit a brick wall in the fifth episode as he finally gave into his desires and murdered Elias. Here's what happened, in summary:

  • As advised by Alan, Sam went to see his ex-wife, Mary, but aside from catching up on the wellbeing of their adopted Bangladeshi children and getting his La-Z-Boy back, the trip didn’t seem to do much for Sam’s mental state.
  • Meanwhile, Alan and Elias plotted to jump Sam by tricking him into inviting Elias into a session.
  • Sam tried to kill Elias but was sent to his room by Candace.
  • Later, the urges became too much, and when Alan tricked Sam into bringing Elias into the session, Sam flipped out and strangled him.

The Patient's season 1, episode 6 release date has been announced.

The film "Charlie" is scheduled to be released on Tuesday, September 27.

Where can I find The Patient on Netflix?

"Charlie" preview and predictions

Here's the official synopsis from IMDb:

Sam is consumed with practical necessities, but agrees to his therapist's suggestions to make different choices.

  • It might just be me, but I don’t think the therapy is necessarily working. Alan is probably going to realize this too and use the guise of it as an excuse to manipulate Sam more openly.
  • How does Sam dispose of the bodies? That’d be interesting to see.
  • I’m sure that the whole backstory with Ezra is going to be relevant somehow, but for the life of me I can’t figure out how yet.
