This article is a preview for American Gigolo season 1, episode 4, and contains details of the release date/time and where to watch online. It may contain spoilers for previous episodes. 


David Hollander’s Showtime remake of Paul Schrader’s 1980 classic American Gigolo imagines a different version of the same story in which high-class male escort Julian Kaye was never given an alibi by his lover, Michelle, and instead spent 15 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Suddenly free after a contract killer confesses to the crime on his deathbed, Julian is dropped back into his old life and attempts both to reconnect with his lover and unravel the mystery of who framed him.

The third episode, “Rapture”, united the A and B plots and picked up a little momentum. Here’s what happened in American Gigolo season 1, episode 3, in summary:

American Gigolo season 1, episode 3 recap:

  • Julian became a primary suspect in the murder of Olga and Guy, since it seems too much of a coincidence that they died so shortly after he got out of prison.
  • One of Stratton’s goons, Panish, was able to track down Colin and Elizabeth in a motel. In a scuffle while Colin was out of the room, Elizabeth ended up dead.
  • Michelle, tracing Elizabeth’s financial records, found the motel room and Elizabeth’s corpse. She tried to clean up any evidence of Colin’s presence but Stratton wouldn’t inform the police.
  • Sunday found a photo of Michelle and Julian in the motel room, making Julian the suspect in yet another murder.

American Gigolo season 1, episode 4 release date

The latest episode, titled “Nothing Is Real But the Girl”, will debut on Showtime for subscribers on Friday, September 30, and then on the Showtime channel on Sunday, October 2.

Where to watch American Gigolo season 1, episode 4 online

As mentioned above, American Gigolo is a Showtime original and can be viewed on the channel or app, either live or on-demand.

Preview and predictions for “Nothing Is Real But the Girl”:

The official synopsis is as follows:

Julian returns to Isabelle’s fold to charm a complicated new client. Michelle’s past catches up to her as she attempts to save her missing son – forcing her to choose between the two loves of her life.

Some predictions:

  • Are we to assume that McGregor is following Julian because Stratton is already aware of the history between Julian and Michelle? I think so.
  • Where does Colin go next? Only seems a matter of time until he’s caught by someone or other.
  • Will Sunday pursue Julian as a suspect or will they team up to uncover the real truth? Probably the latter, though that might come after a period of the former.
  • How does Lisa Beck fit into all this? Answers on a postcard.
