Warrior Nun - Proverbs 14:1

Using the journal of the Warrior Nuns, Ava (Alba Baptista) comes up with a plan to find the sacred relic deep within the crypts of Vatican City. To do so, she'll need the help of Jillian Salvius (Thekla Reuten), who has interest in the artifact that may allow her to open her gateway, and train with Sister Beatrice (Kristina Tonteri-Young) to pass through walls far thicker than she has every attempted before. Finally having all the core nuns working together allows for the show to explore some internal dynamics and allow Ava to get to know the others. Beatrice's story is the episode's highlight, cementing an already burgeoning friendship between the pair, and explaining the drive behind the warrior nuns most kick-ass team member.

"Proverbs 14:1" also offers the return of Lilith (Lorena Andrea) who seems to have no memory of her hellish vacation and seeks out Ava after getting a look at Sister Crimson (Sinead MacInnes) and seeing what has happened to the order in her absence. Ava and Lilith are able to bury the hatchet. Despite spending time with Lilith, Ava sees no demon energy surrounding the nun (but it's obvious she has been changed by her experience). I'm curious to see just what has happened to the nun, and how long before the consequences of her return come back on the team. Searching for details about the secret crypt under the Vatican allows Shotgun Mary (Toya Turner) to see a far more dangerous side of Father Vincent (Tristán Ulloa) as the show offers another breadcrumb for a possible late-season twist. And Ava's decision to destroy the artifact, rather than remove it from the Vatican, will likely create complications with her new partnership with Jillian Salvius.
