Warrior Nun - 2 Corinthians 10:4 television review

Finally, the heist episode. The season’s penultimate episode features Ava (Alba Baptista), Beatrice (Kristina Tonteri-Young), Mary (Toya Turner), Camila (Olivia Delcán), and Father Vincent (Tristán Ulloa) using the conclave as cover to break into the catacombs under the Vatican. Not altogether unexpected, Sister Crimson (Sinead MacInnes) and the other nuns await the former sisters. Having accepted her role as a member of the team, Ava leads the group underground while relying on them to keep her safe and conserve the Halo’s power for what is to come. A joyful mix of stealth, action, and really bad puns, “Corinthians 10:4” ends with Ava entering the tomb to discover the last thing she ever expected.

Warrior Nun - Proverbs 14:1 television review

Using the journal of the Warrior Nuns, Ava (Alba Baptista) comes up with a plan to find the sacred relic deep within the crypts of Vatican City. To do so, she’ll need the help of Jillian Salvius (Thekla Reuten), who has interest in the artifact that may allow her to open her gateway, and train with Sister Beatrice (Kristina Tonteri-Young) to pass through walls far thicker than she has every attempted before. Finally having all the core nuns working together allows for the show to explore some internal dynamics and allow Ava to get to know the others. Beatrice’s story is the episode’s highlight, cementing an already burgeoning friendship between the pair, and explaining the drive behind the warrior nuns most kick-ass team member.

Warrior Nun - Ephesians 4:22-24 television review

Ava‘s (Alba Baptista) attempt to turn to science hoping for answers about what has happened to her and may not provide anything more believable than that she truly has an angel’s halo in her back allowing her to fight demons, but it does reveal the true reason behind Jillian Salvius‘ (Thekla Reuten) research. Having exhausted other options, Ava returns to the order only to find big changes. Consolidating his power, Cardinal Duretti (Joaquim de Almeida) has let Shotgun Mary (Toya Turner) go, and banished both Sister Beatrice (Kristina Tonteri-Young) and Father Vincent (Tristán Ulloa) to the other side of the world while reinstating the sociopathic Sister Crimson (Sinead MacInnes).

Warrior Nun - Isaiah 30:20-21 television review

Ava (Alba Baptista) and Shotgun Mary (Toya Turner) become unlikely road companions after the encounter with a demon as an injured Mary leads Ava to a nearby village where the Order help some years before. There’s Odd Couple some humor in the opening sequence as Mary tracks Ava down, gently pushes her towards a nearby town, and becomes her travelling companion. The pair’s time together allows Mary to offer Ava the soft pitch to joining the order while also giving the younger woman a sense of her importance and how her control over the Halo gives her leverage and power. Disconnected from the various other characters and subplots, “Matthew 7:13” offers a nice break while also allowing Ava to see the positive effects of those who have been helped by the warrior nuns.

Warrior Nun - Matthew 7:13 television review

After rescuing Ava (Alba Baptista) from Sister Lilith (Lorena Andrea), Shotgun Mary (Toya Turner) and Lilith continue to battle as each tracks Ava and JC (Emilio Sakraya). Realizing JC has questions, but unable to offer the truth, Ava offers a simplified version of her story (removing all the mystical aspects), but by the end of the episode he’ll have far more questions. Baptista and Andrea are the stars here who put on a series of great action scenes between the two of them as Mary wants to bring Ava back to the order and Lilith wants to cut the halo out of her (a decision which doesn’t end well for the nun when exposing the Halo summons a Tarask).
