Thinking he left the world of possessions, exorcisms, and evil behind him, he must now use these skills to save his estranged daughter. The idea of the father also being possessed by something that occurred years earlier and is still affecting him much the same as what's possessing his daughter really makes for a confusing narrative about what's going on and tends to make this all the more unsure about what's going on.

Damon gives up helping with exorcisms and becomes a recluse while Caroline is taken away and put into foster care by Padre. Alas, that was not to be the case.
