EPISODE ONE (11/16/13)

SUMMARY:  Jesus' mooks Peter and James find the cave he was "buried" in (he faked his death) and set him free.  Jesus, after an unsentimental reunion with his apostle goombahs, including a formerly very doubtful Thomas, he learns that Judas was the one who betrayed him to the Romans... and so Jesus, ever the vengeful Godfather, orders a hit on his former friend.

James (Scot Shamblin) is upbraided by a newly-resurrected Jesus (Terry Tocantins). Jesus, in turn, is upbraided by Mother Mary (Jamie Fluet). Far from the last supper. L-R: Jesus (Terry Tocantins), Bart (Sean Sweeney), random disciple (Gabe Leonard), Doubting Thomas (Jay Bogdonowitsch) and another random disciple (Joshua Benton). Peter (Bruno Oliver) is incredulous at Jesus' order: put out a hit on Judas.

EPISODE TWO (11/23/13)

SUMMARY:  Jesus cures his disciples' headache with a Eucharist involving the Alka Seltzer and Coffee of Christ.  Barty, who is blackballed at the palace, is sent out to find Tommy, who was sent to talk to the Romans.  Soon, Tommy brings news that they have a meeting with Pilate tomorrow at 3, that Barty has been arrested by the Romans... and that he's learned where Judas is hiding out.  Jesus sends Mark to kill Judas, and orders that he make it look like a suicide... and sends James to watch Mark, who is just out of rehab.  However, when they arrive at Judas' place, Mark begins doing coke to "get tight" and then decides to screw what the boss wants... he's going to offer Judas a choice: hanging, or a bullet to the head.  Judas rambles on philosophically in order to stave off the inevitable, but eventually a coked-up Mark kills Judas with a knife and bites off his ear.  James unwisely calls in to report on what's happening... and the Roman cops have tapped the call.

EPISODE THREE (12/7/13)

SUMMARY: Jesus and his crew arrive at the Roman palace for their appointment with Pontius Pilate, and they also bail Bartholomew out of jail.  They meet up with John the Baptist, who feigns friendship at first, but when he gives Jesus lip, Mark kills him.  After much paperwork, Jesus and his gang of disciples are admitted to Pilate's office; as they enter, Jesus calls out threateningly,  "Ey!  I bet you never thought you'd see ME again!"

EPISODE FIVE (1/25/14)

SUMMARY: Jesus and his mooks meet with Herod and Salome.  Mark parties Herod to death by giving him a gigantic pile of blow.  Meanwhile, Salome, who has fallen for Thomas, requests the head of John the Baptist on a platter, and gets it.  Jesus plans a meeting with Saul of Tarsus... but the devious Saul is planning on letting Jesus do all the dirty work of killing all their mutual enemies, and then making a killing of his own.

Jesus gets ready for a meeting with Herod. Jesus asks Mark to kill Herod by partying him out - i.e. plying him with mountains of cocaine. A coked-up Herod (Guy Picot) murders a party girl (Angela Sauer) at his palace. Jesus confronts Timothy (Abraham Benrubi).

EPISODE EIGHT (7/5/14) - PLAYOFFS WEEK 4!

SUMMARY: Jesus just needs to carry out three more hits to avenge his death and take over the Empire... but his plot to kill Barabbas by planting a bomb in his chariot goes awry: Barabbas survives, Moe Greene's leg is maimed - further inflamin his enmity for Jesus and his crew - and the Centurion who is killed in the blast becomes a martyr for the Romans, turning public opinion against Jesus.  For his part, Jesus has had plastic surgery to change his face as part of his plan, and now must deal not only with the botched hit, but with Mary Magdalene's announcement that she's pregnant.  Meanwhile, the Roman Emperor and Pontius Pilate agree that the only threat remaining comes from Mark - who is in rehab and therefore harmless.  However, Mark receives a vision of God - a sultry woman who tells him that his boss needs him, and that he must "get tight," leave the hospital where he's convalescing, and come to protect his boss.
