Plot Synopsis

MANHUNT: DEADLY GAMES, the second installment in the MANHUNT true-crime anthology series, chronicles one of the largest and most complex manhunts on U.S. soil -- the search for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics Bomber -- and the media firestorm that consumed the life of Richard Jewell in its wake. Inspired by actual events, this series continues to take a deep dive into the dark, twisted minds of terrorists and follows the brave souls who hunt them down. All 10 one-hour episodes of MANHUNT: DEADLY GAMES dropped ad-free exclusively on Spectrum's On Demand platform on Monday, February 3, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT:

"Centbom": Security guard Richard Jewell saves hundreds of lives when he discovers a bomb at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, but his heroic act quickly comes under the scrutiny of law enforcement as pressure mounts to catch the killer.

"Unabubba": When the media gets wind of the FBI's "hero-bomber" theory, a media firestorm erupts, engulfing Richard and his family; ATF agents raise doubts as bombings continue.

"Bombingham": While Richard fights back against the FBI and the media, ATF Agent Embry investigates a serial bomber terrorizing the Southeast and discovers a crucial link to the Olympic bomb.

"Run Rudolph Run": The FBI identifies serial bomber Eric Rudolph and gives chase, but Eric escapes into the forest; Richard and Watson discover powerful evidence that could exonerate Richard and contemplate turning to the press for help.

"Land of the Noonday Sun": The FBI search for Eric spins out of control as antigovernment locals and Eric's family push back; Richard must confront his inner demons as he prepares for a pivotal press conference.

"Army of God": Viewing him as a freedom fighter under siege, local militias rally around Eric and attack the FBI; as Embry continues to investigate, he learns that Eric is not who he claims to be.

"Eric": Eric manipulates locals, militia and FBI alike as he plans a major counterattack; Richard appears on 60 MINUTES in a high-stakes gamble to save his reputation once and for all.

"Join or Die": FBI Agent Brennan realizes he needs to change course to catch Eric, and he forms an alliance with Embry to do so; in Atlanta, Kathy Scruggs comes face-to-face with Richard for the first time ever.

"Don't Tread on Me": Risking everything, Brennan and Embry appeal to a powerful local militia leader with the truth about Eric, and a call for unity and moral courage.

"Open Season": Eric, starving and bereft of allies, is finally captured; as his day in court -- and Richard's exoneration -- approaches, he has another dangerous secret in store for law enforcement.
