Season 2 Premiere Episode 1 “Parallax’ will mark the return of the critically acclaimed series on Showtime. It will continue with the journey of Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Kaplan), as they try to maintain the balance between their work and relationships.
In “Masters of Sex” Season 1 Finale “Manhigh” (air date: December 15, 2013), Masters went to Virginia’s home during a rainy weather. He confessed that she needed to learn about the truth — he could not live without her in her life. Virginia, on the other hand, chose Masters and their work over a “happy” life with Ethan (Nicholas D’Agosto).
Meanwhile, TV Guide posted the official synopsis of the upcoming “Masters of Sex” episode. “Parallax” will pick up with the aftermath of the shameful showing of the “sexy” movies. Masters will be urged by Libby (Caitlin Fitzgerald) to find another job after he was fired at the hospital.
Virginia will try to move on from the shameful act that cost both of their career and research. Unfortunately, she continues to refuse several sexual advances and innuendos that came her way.
Moreover, several new cast members will join “Masters of Sex” Season 2. Michael Sheen’s rumored girlfriend and comedienne, Sarah Silverman, will play the role of a lesbian named Helen. Silverman’s role will be connected with Betty (Annaleigh Ashford).
Courtney B. Vance (“Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) will take on the role of Dr. Hendricks, the head doctor at an African-American hospital. Rene Auberjonois (“Warehouse 13″) will play the role of Dr. Georgios Papanikolaou, the inventor of the Pap smear procedure.
Betsy Brandt from “Breaking Bad,” who will play the role as Barbara, will replace Miss Horchow (Margo Martindale) and Libby (Caitlin Fitzgerald) as Master’s official assistant. Jocko Sims (“The Last Ship”) and Keke Palmer (“True VP”) will take on the role of Robert and Coral. Robert is an active member of CORE (Congress of Racial Equality), while Coral will take on the role as the nanny in Masters’ home.
