‘Prodigal Son’: Catherine Zeta-Jones, Tom Payne on Capshaw’s ‘Tortured World,’ Dani and Malcolm’s Future

“The grassroots of this character is that she’s a sociopath, just like Martin Whitly,” Zeta-Jones tells TheWrap (Warning: This post contains spoilers for Tuesday’s “Prodigal Son.”) Following Monday’s news that “Prodigal Son” will not be returning for a third season on Fox, fans could at least take comfort in the fact that Tuesday brought a new episode of the second (and now final) season of the Tom Payne and Michael Sheen-led thriller — even if it was an extra discomforting installment.

We asked a ‘Chopped’ chef how to cook amazing food over a campfire

When most of us pack the cooler for a camping trip, we expect to be living on hot dogs and canned beans. Or maybe we plan to boil some water and rehydrate a foil packet of pasta. When Mary Brent Galyean goes camping, there’s prime rib, duck confit, roasted corn orzo and red bean cheesecake.

Cooking over a campfire

Galyean is an expedition chef (and a formally-trained sushi chef and a former contestant on “Chopped”) who creates gourmet meals without the help of electricity, propane or running water.

Duration: 03:34

Volunteers were cooking meals for Covid-19 patients today (April 23) amid a resurgence in cases in Bangkok, Thailand. The Ruamkatanyu foundation has deployed their rescue volunteers to make 3,000 boxes of meals to send to three field hospitals in Bangkok and Pathum Thani that have been detaining anyone who tests positive for the virus since April 20. The volunteers began the process at 9am using giant frying pans to make stir-fried meat and vegetables served with rice, which was cooked in enormous multi-tiered steamers. The movement gained support from Suksan Kittisupakorn, director of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s Medical
