Friday's episode of "Outcast" titled " What Lurks Within" was an important one for Sidney portrayer Brent Spiner as the hour saw Sidney explaining to Kyle more about his job. The episode also shed some light into Sidney's host body and he turned out to be a much sinister character than the demon.
"I had no idea who [the host] was going to be," Spiner told TVLine. "When it finally came out [that he had his own torture chamber for children], I was like, "Oh my God! The guy he has merged with is far worse than he is!" I think that's unusual. I think it's been true with some other people who have merged but profoundly so in Sidney's case. He's wound up with someone that's really disgusting!"
During the interview, Spiner also revealed that they have started filming Season 2, which will probably deal with the Great Merge. While revealing the Great Merge hasn't been shot yet, Spiner said that he has a basic idea on what it was. "My guess is, it's going to be profound. But it comes to [the cast] in pieces. It's a huge puzzle that's sort of slowly coming together. I think, at some point, we're going to see a very large number of people being merged," Spiner said.
According to spoilers, the finale is going to feature an interesting confrontation between Kyle and his tormentor Sidney.
The synopses for the final two episodes read:

"Outcast" airs Fridays on Cinemax. It is based on the comics by Robert Kirkman. While Season 1 has more or less stayed true to its source material, chances are the next season will diverge a bit from the "Outcast" comics.
