Been watching it too, at first it hooks you in leading you to believe you're following two hero's as they try to battle a pandemic of demonic
possessions, one a priest with experience in exorcisms the other a victim to two possessions of his family in his past, the victim guy seems blessed
with the ability to excorsize them with just a touch, making the petty sore excuse for a priest jealous of his effectiveness, since the priest it is
revealed had never been successful in a single exorcism on his own.
Slowly they begin to reveal that these are not demons, rather they are benevolent spirits and deserve their own chance at life, even though it is at
the cost of stealing the life from those they possess... and they only mimic the violent outbursts of a real demon possession during the first few
days after the beginning of a possession, then they become peaceful better people then those they replaced,
The show frequently makes hints and mentions that this is all unrelated to Christianity and the priests beliefs are wrong and there isn't really a God
or a hell.
Basically, if a writer wanted to make a story that explains demon possession as being real and a good thing, while also supporting atheism, this is
exactly what it would look like. ..
So far anyhow. It must be said they are only ten episodes in and they might 'turn the tables later and reveal the priest as being right all along and
all else was demon deception', remains to be seen. But to me it does not seem to be going that way.
If this show continues down this path I will lose interest and find it to be morally repugnant. I do not accept the idea that a spirit should be
allowed to possess and steal another person's body/life no matter the supposed intentions as the show has begun to indicate.
