Two FBI agents are brought in to help Wisting and his team apprehend the infamous killer who has eluded capture for years.
Meanwhile, Line – Wisting’s intrepid journalist daughter – is chasing headlines, leading her straight into the path of the serial killer.

Eva Geller is a CIA officer investigating a mysterious “miracle man” who’s developed a cult-like following across the globe. We see crowds of people flock to the prophet’s appearances in far-flung locales such as an active war zone in Syria, where he says he was simply “delivering a message” from his father. While his followers credit him with performing miracles, he manages to elude the authorities’ grasp, even when they think they have him in custody.
He says he’s doing “God’s work,” but is he actually just scamming people with fake miracles?
Stars: Michelle Monaghan, Mehdi Dehbi, Tomer Sisley, John Ortiz

As the Locke children explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon awakens – and will stop at nothing to steal them.
