The trio goes to the Yahshua cult. When David and Kristen run across Owen’s friend Lily, they inform her about Owen’s possession. Ben encounters Rene, a member of the Secret Science League and the cult’s leader in cover. David is compelled to return immediately after getting a call from LeConte, leaving Ben behind to further his understanding of the cult’s practices. When David’s connection to the Vatican is revealed to Kristen, she insists on traveling with him. David and Kristen become aware that Ben might be in danger when Kristen learns that the Vatican is interested in Lexis.
LeConte once more runs into David in the climactic scene of the episode. He explains the scenario to Kristen and indicates that Lexis is being cultivated by nefarious forces. She is getting ready to take the place of one of the most potent demonic house sigils. However, David decides to support Kristen rather than LeConte.
LeConte makes an effort to persuade Kristen. She exits, though, to embrace her daughter. The incident demonstrates that Lexis’ demonic side originated at the reproductive clinic. However, it is clear that Lexis could be in danger and could easily be persuaded to side with the evil. Furthermore, it’s particularly concerning that the Vatican is interested in Lexis.

Kristen and David discover that Ben’s life might be in danger just as they are about to exhale in relief. Ben is unreachable despite Kristen and Ben’s best efforts. Ben, meanwhile, discovers Rene’s actual character and the Yahshua sect. The cult brainwashes people by utilizing their guilt. Ben, on the other hand, rebuffs and fights back when the same is attempted on him.
But when the cult tries to make Ben a sacrifice, the situation becomes fatal. Ben has already escaped the cult by the time Kristen and Ben arrive at the property, but he is still coated in a goat’s blood sacrifice. Although Ben’s life is no longer in danger, it is implied that he has been subjected to some degree of brainwashing.
