In this episode, we discuss the seventh episode of the season – “Father of Lies.” In addition to getting into our first big discussion on why Bennet is a beloved character, we also explore themes of salvation both in the Exorcist story and humanity itself.
I KNOW….pretty deep, right?
Of course, there is the obligatory love of Marcus and his fashion – this time, his choice of blanket is does that thing chefs do thanks to Zoe pointing that out. We also give a shoutout to amazing Exorcist renewal congregant, Mary, for her dedication to the movement to get this show renewed for another season.
Music is "Liar" by Rollins Band, from album Weight.
