For those who have followed the series, a major plot point has been the quest of the native teenage protagonists to leave their rural Oklahoma reservation upbringing and reach California and visit the ocean as a way to honor their late friend Daniel. As the second season draws to a close, the journey is finally over, with a few detours along the way.
One of them comes when their car is stolen along with a few important items when they arrive in Los Angeles, with the teenagers seemingly at a loss until Boyd shows up as a character referred to as “White Jesus”. The dirty musician tells the teenagers that guys in suits, either mobsters or Mormons, “got it,” but offers to take them to the beach. Finally, he takes them to a homeless camp where they are allowed to crash before making their final journey to the sea.
“White Jesus” also makes another appearance at the end of the episode, walking the beaches with his metal detector. A short TV clip featuring the cameo was shared on Twitter as seen below.
Although Boyd is primarily known for his time in Incubus, his most recent musical offering was his second solo album, Echoes and cocoons, which was released earlier this year. This marks Boyd’s second significant on-screen cameo, having previously appeared as the Central Park singer in the 2015 film Chloe and Theo starring Dakota Johnson.
