A Brit (Zoie in England), a Mexican (Tina in Florida), and an accused demon (Gaia in Italy) come together to bring you a podcast dedicated to all things The Exorcist TV show, currently airing on Fox. We rewatch and discuss the series one episode at a time, deep-diving into critical scenes and having some fun along the way. We also pour through as much exorcist content we can find on the internet and share all the behind the scenes information so you don't have to find it all yourself! So sit back, relax, and listen to us as we geek out about the greatest horror/action/(romance?) television show in history.
In this episode, we discuss the second episode of the season – Lupus in Fabula. And like the episode title, if you speak of the devil, we shall appear! Muahaha! We explore such topics as how Marcus and Tomas both compliment and contrast each other, Marcus as a strong masculine figure while gentle/emotional, the additional homages to the original Exorcist movie, the continuation of decay from both a cinematic and thematic perspective, and…of course…make a shout out to the amazing Exorcist Congregation fandom. We can’t even explain how thankful we are to all of you.
