If you haven’t been following Season Two of the hit Fox TV show The Exorcist you need to get on board quickly. For latecomers to The Exorcist, the first season of the show was built around the 1973 movie of the same name. Two exorcists, Father Tomas Ortega, played by Alfonso Herrera, and Father Marcus Keane, played by Ben Daniels, exorcise a demon from a girl named Casey Rance. It turns out that Casey’s mother is none other than Regan MacNeil, the girl who was demonically possessed in the original movie version of The Exorcist.
The first season of The Exorcist saw Father’s Marcus and Tomas succeed in exorcising Casey’s demon. In doing so they also uncover a plot to assassinate the pope. Marcus manages to save the pope but became a target for a group of powerful people who are possessed by demons. Their ultimate aim is to usher in an era of world domination by the devil and all his demons.
Season Two of The Exorcist sees Marcus and Tomas on the run, pursued by the forces of evil, but performing exorcisms across the country. As reported by Showbiz Junkies, episode five of The Exorcist saw Marcus and Tomas arrive on an island inhabited by Andy Kim. Andy runs a home for children in foster care.
