Who Was Possessed?

Ed and Lorraine were investigating a demon within a young boy David Glatzel who was suffering from it. They had to carry out the exorcism as soon as possible or else the situation could’ve become worse. Father Gordon arrives to perform the exorcism however things go roundabout midway.

Because he was in possession, Arne stabs his friend Bruno 22 times and kills him. Police arrest Arne for the charges of murder.

Origins of Demon

Upon investigation, Ed and Lorraine come to realize that somebody invited a demon to possess the body of David. Somebody placed a totem beneath the basement of the house to achieve this. Ed wants to put Arne on trial for the account of demonic possession while murdering.

He learns about a similar case that happened with Katie Lincoln who was also stabbed 22 times. Upon full investigation, they finally find out the reason for these killings.

Who Put the Curse?

Through her ability, Lorraine successfully locates the person who is performing satanic rituals and invited demons. We later find out she is the daughter of Kastner, a retired priest who studied satanic rituals. Lorraine informs Ed that when she contacted her, it was a two-way connection. This means that now she knows about both Ed and Lorraine.

The next day they discover the same totem within the vase and realize now even Ed has been cursed by that woman. Their backs are against the walls and Ed has to locate that woman before time runs out. They pinpoint her location and Ed realizes that woman lives in the same house as Kastner. Now he has to save Lorraine who has already gone to visit Kastner to find more clues about the curse.

Meeting With Kastner

Ed would be the last person to complete the curse as he is the man of God. Kastner shows him a secret door that leads to tunnels. He tells them her daughter’s altar is located down below and she has to destroy it to lift the curse.
