Warrior Nun - Ephesians 4:22-24

Ava's (Alba Baptista) attempt to turn to science hoping for answers about what has happened to her and may not provide anything more believable than that she truly has an angel's halo in her back allowing her to fight demons, but it does reveal the true reason behind Jillian Salvius' (Thekla Reuten) research. Having exhausted other options, Ava returns to the order only to find big changes. Consolidating his power, Cardinal Duretti (Joaquim de Almeida) has let Shotgun Mary (Toya Turner) go, and banished both Sister Beatrice (Kristina Tonteri-Young) and Father Vincent (Tristán Ulloa) to the other side of the world while reinstating the sociopathic Sister Crimson (Sinead MacInnes).

Ava's timely return helps in Mary's plan to raid Shannon's secret room. And so "Ephesians 4:22-24" allows for the formation of a core team featuring Ava, Mary, and Beatrice. Despite showing little interest in sticking around, Beatrice arrives in time to help with Sister Crimson. Ava's discovery reveals a hidden power deep within the Vatican and seems to point to Duretti both wanting that power for himself and being responsible for Shannon's death (although the wording of Shannon's journal does allow for an alternate explanation none of the group has considered). The revelation also seems to play into what Jillian Salvius is after meaning the scientist may not be finished with Ava just yet.
