What Is Ruthless About?
A spinoff of "The Oval," follows Ruth Truesdale as she's forced to play nice with a scandalous religious cult of powerful sex crazed fanatics in the hopes of freeing herself and her daughter. In a backdoor pilot during the first three episodes of The Oval, Ruth Truesdale (Melissa L. Williams) kidnaps her daughter Callie to join her and the sex-crazed members of the Rakudushis cult. Ruth is a devoted member of the Rakadushi cult.
After helping to severely punish her rebellious, best friend Tally, she becomes an "Elder," a high ranking member of the cult. However, in order to be initiated into the position of Elder, she was required to be gang raped, by seven, high ranking cult members, Including Andrew and Dikhan, in the presence of The Highest. After being gang raped, Ruth no longer wanted to be a member of the cult and began planning an escape, along with her best friend, Tally.
The leader of the Rakadushis is "the Highest" (Matt Cedeño). The Highest has long hair and is always wearing white. His demeanor is very calm, peaceful, and welcoming. This is to cover up the fact that he is a sexual sadist. He uses drugs to make newcomers black out and lose all memory to violently rape them. He himself is also a drug addict.
Dikhan (Lenny Thomas), is a high ranking cult member who is the right hand to The Highest. He is the overseer of everything that happens on the cult's property. Dikhan is very handsome and loyal to The Highest, but he is also extremely invasive and stern. It is revealed in Season one, episode seven, that Dikhan and The Highest have been in a homosexual relationship for twelve years. The Highest's fondness of Andrew causes Dikhan to be jealous and insecure. Members of all ranks of the cult fear Dikhan. Dikhan reports all wrongdoing of the cult members to The Highest and often recommends and inflicts their punishment.
The Rakadushi cult was infiltrated by undercover FBI agent Andrew (Blue Kimble) who eventually converted his beliefs into that of the religious sex cult and is in the process of becoming a high ranking member of the Rakadushis. Andrew is married to Sarah and they have one son. After the infiltrating and becoming a unwavering believer of the Rakadushi religion, he began a secret, forbidden, sexual affair with Tally (Yvonne Senat Jones) who is also a member of the Rakadushi cult. Andrew falls in love with Tally, and eventually gets her pregnant.
Tally does not know that Andrew is an undercover FBI agent who is also married. Andrew is a very loyal member and believer of the Rakadushi cult and its beliefs. However, he is frequently torn between his beliefs and his love for Tally, when Tally is severely and continuously punished for her mistakes and rebellious behavior. Tally question Andrew's love for her after finding out Andrew was part of the seven men who gang raped Ruth. Andrew had homosexual sex with The Highest one time, proving his loyalty to the cult, but causing friction between he and Dikhan, due to Dikhan being in love with The Highest.
As the season continues, many of the faithful followers have begun to uncover the evil that exists beneath the surface of the Rakudushis movement. Armed with this knowledge, Ruth and several new fearful cult members try to take control of their individual destinies. The attempts will prove to be almost impossible for anyone who does not have allies they think they can trust. Viewers will see more sex, lies, and murder in this cult that is living up to its fate. The adage 'beware false prophets' has never reigned more true.
