By Jay Hunter Father Marcus journeys to an unexpected destination and receives guidance from a most unlikely source; The two priests must decide whether to defy the church by performing an unsanctioned exorcism.

After a CGI heavy dream, Casey’s condition continues to deteriorate in the psychiatric wing of a hospital, where she was transported after last weeks train attack. Due to her case, Doctors inform her mother that she can’t have access to her child for 72 hours, of course this only serves to perpetuate the demonic host inside of her, as it begins to ratify over her soul in private. Threatening  the innocent people around her, Casey is forced to give in to the incubus before it harms more around her.

It’s an arc that serves no purpose other than fleshing out and humanising Tomas himself. It’s a storyline that is of minor importance thus far, however assuming it will lead to Jessica being lead to jeopardy later on in the series, providing some calamitous crisis, it may well pay off toward The Exorcist’s climax.

Once again Marcus is the noteworthy focal point. As he visits a local covenant after last weeks excommunication. Gaining guidance and training from the local Nun’s, Father Marcus comes across more gauzy, yet none the less leaden complemented by an equally hardened performance from Mother Bernadette (Deanna Dunagan).

Concluding with the exorcism inauguration, The Exorcist continues to be a stand out horror show this Halloween season. Problems occur when city-wide exorcisms are teased, but for now it’s the most enjoyable horror ride on television.
