**This article is 100 percent “Outcast” spoiler free**

Every time I sit down to write one of these, it gets harder and harder to keep my big mouth shut.

I am the worst person in the world when it comes to spoilers. 9 times out of 10 I’m completely and utterly incapable of keeping things secret and I’ve lost many a friend due to me accidentally spoiling “Game of Thrones” episodes (Khaleesi is the Mother of Dragons).

As I sat down to write this after watching this week’s extremely important (like – absolutely pivotal; if you’ve watched the series up until now whatever you do, do not miss tonight) episode, I found myself in a state of pseudo-panic because I absolutely hate cliffhangers and tonight’s episode leaves a whole mess of questions unanswered with not a lot of time left to answer them.

God I hope they answer them.

Kyle’s life has been on an upswing these last few weeks, Reverend Anderson’s world has been taking a complete nosedive, demons are everywhere and in everyone, and Sidney has proved to be more than just a small nuisance.

This is (basically) where we’re left at the top of “Outcast” Episode 9: “Sympathy for the Devil.”

Without spoiling anything directly: all of what we know from last week gets turned on its head tonight.

Kyle has just about seen the beginning of the end of his good luck, Reverend Anderson finally gets a few good shots in after weeks of ridicule and scorn, Megan sees a happy little dose of good come her way, and Sidney – well, Sidney is about the same and more pissed than ever.

These are just a few snippets of what we’re dealing with this week. The entire world is falling apart and into the hands of a few, lets say, “tough customers” and Kyle might not be able (or willing?) to do anything about it.

I like to think that I have an idea as to how things are going to go – however as all things begin to unfold, I’m ready and waiting for a slap in the face.

“Outcast” airs tonight, Friday, on Cinemax at 10 PM ET/ 9 PM CT.

Hold onto your crucifixes, folks – they’ll probably come in handy.
