Through its cast of varied and colourful individuals, the show provides a sarcastic critique on organised religions and their inherent hypocrisy. The Gemstones are Evangelical pastors who have no problem violating the teachings they preach to their large following.
Harmon Freeman is linked to the Gemstones by his father, “Baby” Billy (Walton Goggins), who is Jesse, Judy, and Kelvin’s maternal uncle. Everything you need to know about Harmon is right here.

Harmon, who is he?
From his previous marriage to Gloria, “Baby” Billy has a son named Harmon. “Baby” Billy is already married to Tiffany, who is much younger than him when the storey begins.
In the fifth episode of the first season, titled ‘Interlude,’ Harmon and Gloria make their first appearance. The storey jumps back to 1989.
Eli and Aimee-Leigh Gemstone were primarily televangelists at the time. They weren’t quite what they’d become in a few decades, but they were getting there. “Baby” Billy and Aimee-Leigh used to be in a song-and-dance duo when they were younger.
“Baby” Billy holds Eli responsible for their eventual breakup. He and Aimee-Leigh are planning a reunion tour, but she becomes pregnant with her and Eli’s third child and cancels, enraging “Baby” Billy even more.
Harmon, unlike his cousins, is quiet and polite. Harmon visits a mall in Charlotte, North Carolina, with his parents a few days before Christmas in season 2 episode 4, titled ‘As To How They Might Destroy Him.’
“Baby” Billy swears he will buy Harmon whatever he desires. Harmon decides on a cat. Billy, dubbed “Baby,” sends Gloria on an errand before fleeing and abandoning his family.
He shows up at the Gemstones’ house in the next episode, alleging that Gloria broke up with him. Aimee-Leigh, on the other hand, discovers the truth and attempts to persuade her brother to return to his family, but he refuses.
“Baby” Billy hallucinates his dead sister instructing him to visit Harmon in the present time in episode 8, titled “The Prayers of a Righteous Man,” which he hesitantly does.
He had run away earlier after learning about Tiffany’s pregnancy. He recognises that he must resolve his differences with Harmon before he can be a father to the child on the way.
Harmon has matured and appears to be doing exceptionally well. He is wealthy, married, and the father of children.
His father’s abandonment, on the other hand, has left a severe scar on him. Even in this vulnerable state, “Baby” Billy can’t help but lie to justify his actions. After hitting his father once, Harmon eventually forgives him.
Who is it that betrays Harmon?
Harmon is played by Jeremy T. Thomas as a child. He is most known for his roles as Lucas Weaver in the 2021 horror mystery drama film “Antlers” and Young Boyd in the Spectrum Originals short-lived southern gothic series “Paradise Lost.”
He has since established himself as one of the most well-known kid actors of all time. As an adult, he has appeared in films such as ‘Changeland’ and ‘American Horror Story: Double Feature.’
