The second season of the reality series enlisted 21 celebrities to play the game hosted by Alan Cumming. The players are divided into “Faithful” and “Traitors” and the object of the game is to identify who the traitors are before they get murdered or banished from the game. At stake is a $250,000 prize that Cirie Fields from Survivor took home in Season 1 after successfully fooling her co-stars she was a faithful and hiding her status as a traitor.

For Season 2, Big Brother alum Dan Gheesling and Married to Medicine star Phaedra Parks were chosen as the traitors. The duo would then recruit another faithful to the dark side, picking Survivor’s Parvati Shallow.

The first contestant that was “murdered” by the traitors was The Challenge star Johnny “Bananas,” followed by RuPaul’s Drag Race 9 star Peppermint, who was wrongfully identified as a traitor by her co-stars and banished from the game. In the third episode, Marcus Jordan was murdered by the traitors after he questioned Gheesling and Dancing with the Stars ballroom dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy was banished.

For the third murdered contestant, a twist was unleashed on the traitors. This time, they would have to murder in plain sight and one of the traitors would have to convince a faithful to drink out of a chalice that would signal their death in the game. Episode 3 of the game ended on a cliffhanger with Shallow taking on the task on murdering the next victim.

Peacock drops new episodes of The Traitors Season 2 every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.
