Demons are like your relatives during the holiday season: Let them in once, and you’ll have a hell of a time getting them to leave.
It’s a lesson Father Tomas is still grappling with as you’ll see in this eerie, exclusive clip from tonight’s episode of The Exorcist (Fox, 9/8c).
In the excerpt from “A Heaven of Hell,” the priest is alone with a possessed but resting Andy… which gives Tomas’ sleep-deprived, demon-adjacent mind a little too much time to wander. The creepiness starts with a really not OK noise coming from the bathtub where Harper’s dead mom is hanging out. Then we move to the bedroom, where the cleric is startled by a vision of Andy’s dead wife Nikki… or, at least, the demon manifesting itself as her.
Elsewhere in the episode, we get a huge chunk of backstory about Mouse’s past — and how Marcus is involved — and one of Andy’s foster children offers up a difficult, last-ditch effort to save him. (Oh yeah, and make sure you watch all the way to the very end.)
