‘Tyrant’ Episode Guide (Aug. 19): Barry’s Relationship with Molly is Put to the Test

“Gaslight” (08/19/14) – As the plans for the coup continue to take shape, Jamal proves how far he will go to punish those who oppose him, and Barry’s relationship with Molly is pushed to the limit after she learns of the repercussions that await their family.

The story in this episode was by Chris Levinson. The teleplay was by Peter Noah & Nadia Conners. This episode was directed by Gwyneth Horder-Payton.

From Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning Executive Producer/Showunner Howard Gordon (“24,” “Homeland”), FX’s “Tyrant” tells the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation. Bassam “Barry” Al Fayeed, the younger son of the dictator of a war-torn nation, ends a self-imposed 20-year exile to return to his homeland, accompanied by his American wife and children, for his nephew’s wedding.

Barry’s reluctant homecoming leads to a dramatic clash of cultures as he is thrown back into the familial and national politics of his youth. The cast includes Adam Rayner, Jennifer Finnigan, Ashraf Barhom, Moran Atias, Noah Silver, Anne Winters, Fares Fares, Salim Daw, Justin Kirk, Jordana Spiro, Mehdi Dehbi, and Alice Krige. Howard Gordon, Craig Wright, Glenn Gordon Caron, Gideon Raff, David Yates, Michael Lehmann, Peter Noah, and Avi Nir are Executive Producers.

“Tyrant” was created by Gideon Raff and it is produced by Fox 21 and FX Productions. FX has ordered 10 episodes of “Tyrant” for its first season which airs Tuesday nights at 10 PM ET/PT.
