SPOILER ALERT AHEAD!
The latest episode of Fox’s The Exorcist, “Through My Most Grievous Fault,” revealed that Angela Rance (played by Geena Davis) is actually an all-grown-up Regan MacNeil! Angela reveals this in a long confession to Father Tomas at the end of the episode.
In a move that is SURE to shock the audience (…as it did me) we now know that this isn’t a remake, or a re-imagining of the original 1974 classic, but a DIRECT sequel, instead! Here is how the reveal went down last night on Fox…
“I can’t remember most of it, thankfully. Post-traumatic amnesia, it’s called. Afterwards, I just wanted to move on with my life, put it behind me. But my mother, she was always finding new ways use my story to make a buck. ‘This is the path God gave us. Use it.’ But I ran away from all that. I changed my name. I never told her where I went. I never saw her again. I reinvented myself. But it didn’t matter. No matter what I did. I chose, Angela. Like a name would protect me. That I dreamed that I could have a life, a chance. It didn’t matter. It wasn’t done with me. It’s coming for me, father. I know it. My name is Regan MacNeil…”
