The Daily Stream: Evil Is Small-Screen Horror At Its Best And Strangest

The Daily Stream: Evil Is Small-Screen Horror At Its Best And Strangest
(Welcome to The Daily Stream, an ongoing series in which the /Film team shares what they've been watching, why it's worth checking out, and where you can stream it.)

The Series: "Evil"

Where You Can Stream It: Paramount+

The Pitch: In the simplest of terms, "Evil" is a case-of-the-week procedural in the vein of "The X Files" or "Fringe." Only, instead of investigating unexplained phenomena for the FBI, forensic psychologist Kristen (Katja Herbers), Catholic priest-in-training David (Mike Colter), and tech expert Ben (Aasif Mandvi) are looking into potential supernatural encounters for the Catholic church, in order to see if they meet the criteria to warrant exorcisms. But like I said, that's just the simplest of terms. In reality, even the wackiest episodes of "The X Files" barely touch the outlandishness of "Evil," a show that thrives on surreality, dark humor, creative practical and special effects, and a deep vein

Evil Star Katja Herbers on Over-Directing: I Know How Not to Listen”
Dutch actor Katja Herbers plays forensic psychologist Kristen Bouchard on the hit series Evil, which just finished its third season at Paramount+. On this episode, she talks about how saying no to the audition actually secured her the role, and hitting it off with “the Kings” (show runners Robert and Michelle King) helped her feel ownership of it. We get into the beautiful weeds about the pitfalls of over-directing and how she often simply ignores direction or translates it into something she can use. She explains why laboring over an emotional through-line is unnecessary, how working with the girls that […]

‘Evil’ Bosses on Andy’s Flashes, Father Ignatius & More Season 4 Burning Questions
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for the Evil Season 3 finale “The Demon of the End.”] After a couple of insane finale cliffhangers — what else would you expect from Evil? — the wait for Season 4 is going to be long. Sure, we’re wondering what the future holds now that Leland (Michael Emerson) used Kristen’s (Katja Herbers) missing egg and they’re going to be parents as well as what’s going on at the end there with Andy (Patrick Brammall) and Dr. Boggs (Kurt Fuller) gathering with the demons (and baby) in the under-construction addition to the Bouchard house. But there are also a few other lingering threads at the end of the season. We turned to creators Robert and Michelle King to get answers in addition to their teases about what’s next after those cliffhangers. What can you say about Season 4? Anything about when it picks up, the threads to keep in mind, a tone?

Supernatural Dramas Like Evil to Give You the Creeps
After two seasons of watching our favorite forensic psychologist Dr. Kirsten Bouchard (Katja Herbers), priest-in-training, David Acosta (Mike Colter), and technology contractor (Aasif Mandvi) team up to investigate extraordinary occurrences, Evil is back with its third season, and we couldn’t be happier. While the episodes will be released weekly on Paramount+ from June 12, 2022, there are some other supernatural dramas you can watch in between the latest season of Evil.

Evil Season 3 Finale Review: A Tale of Three Fathers

Evil Season 3 Finale Review: A Tale of Three Fathers
This Evil review contains spoilers.

Evil Season 3 Episode 10

Evil season 3 ends at a crossroads with only one destination. According to The Pop-Up Book of Contemporary Demons, the chapter is both “The Demon of End” and “The Angel of Beginning.” This, however, is a subversion of the dark and light designations. The upcoming birth of a child is being celebrated. It appears to be the product of an inception so immaculate one might call it sterile. But, in an original twist on original sin, the child’s lineage goes straight back to Rms Fertility.

The episode opens in the direct aftermath of “The Demon of Money” conclusion, which saw the death of Monsignor Matthew Korecki (Boris McGiver). The camera doesn’t troll, but the episode expertly shows Leland’s (Michael Emerson) world getting smaller. It is by sheer coincidence, Grace Ling (Li Jun Li) didn’t recognize his face, and tells

‘Evil’ Bosses on Chilling Season 3 Finale: That Baby, Kristen & David, and More
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for the Evil Season 3 finale “The Demon of the End.”] Robert and Michelle King delivered exactly what we expected to bring the third season of Evil to a close: an insane, chilling, thrilling finale. A quick recap of the two wildest moments: Kristen (Katja Herbers) found out that Leland (Michael Emerson) used her missing egg and they’re going to be parents?! Also, after thinking her husband was dead, Andy (Patrick Brammall) came home, thinking Edward’s (Tim Matheson) cover story (an avalanche) is what really happened, but having flashes of the room where Leland and Sheryl (Christine Lahti) were holding him — and he and Dr. Boggs (Kurt Fuller) joined a group of demons around a demon baby in the addition to the Bouchard house. Below, the Kings break down the Season 3 finale. So much about that ending was so chilling! Starting with Leland and Kristen’s baby?! Is his plan for

Evil Season 3 Ending Explained: Welcome To The Book Of Angels

Evil Season 3 Ending Explained: Welcome To The Book Of Angels
Warning: Spoilers ahead for season 3 of "Evil."

In its third season, "Evil" continued to be TV's best horror show, and one of the best overall TV shows, period. Despite a relatively slow start, the season quickly picked up steam and delivered a long streak of the best episodes the show has ever done.

After season 2 covered "The Pop-Up Book of Terrifying Things," this third season went even darker with "The Pop-Up Book of Contemporary Demons" serving as the structure for the seasons' tales of demonic horror. Throughout the season, we saw increasingly more horrible things befall our protagonists: Ben (Aasif Mandvi) struggled with his world of logic being slowly crushed by things he couldn't explain, Kristen (Katja Herbers) learned that her daughter was being groomed by evil people, and David (Mike Colter) battled with temptation and a mosquito demon.

This all culminated in a terrifying and satisfying finale that brought plenty of revelations,

‘Evil’ Season 3 Finale Sneak Peek: David Learns About Problems in Kristen’s House (Video)
Kristen (Katja Herbers) may think her plumbing problems have been fixed, but when her neighbor has some problems, she finds out what she doesn’t know in the Evil Season 3 finale, dropping on August 14 on Paramount+. In TV Insider’s exclusive sneak peek of “The Demon of the End,” Kristen, David (Mike Colter), and Ben (Aasif Mandvi) investigate her neighbor’s house for a demonic infestation. As the neighbor explains, showing them the bathroom, “blood came out of our faucet,” about a month ago, thought she didn’t get video. Kristen and Ben exchange a look. The blood has stopped, the neighbor says, “but the pipes keep making noises.” David notes the report also says she saw demons. “No, the kids did, but we never saw anything,” she says. “Aaron, our oldest, he said he saw a demon’s eyeball floating up in our toilet, but that’s about it.

Evil Season 3 Introduces A Game-Changing Cliffhanger

Evil Season 3 Introduces A Game-Changing Cliffhanger
This Evil review contains spoilers.

Evil Season 3 Episode 9

Evil, season 3 episode 9 “The Demon of Money” is an installment in motion. It begins in the therapeutic aftermath of a horrific incident and ends on a stunning, violent cliffhanger at the cost of a regular character, who we appreciate far more after the sacrifice.

The episode begins in Dr. Boggs’ (Kurt Fuller) office, where Kristen (Katja Herbers) is having a session on the traumatic scene she witnessed at the end of “The Demon of Parenthood.” All the audience saw of that grisly outcome was Kristen’s reaction to it, and that was enough to supply the terror to the ghastly horrors out of view. “The Demon of Money” supplies several reaction shots, often in tangent with the gore, which are as effective at pushing buttons as any of the frightening images.

It is very satisfying to see Kristen deal with the events of the previous installment,

What Could Kristen & David’s ‘Love’ Conversation Mean for the Rest of ‘Evil’ Season 3?

What Could Kristen & David’s ‘Love’ Conversation Mean for the Rest of ‘Evil’ Season 3?
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for Evil Season 3 Episode 8 “The Demon of Parenthood.”] Kristen (Katja Herbers) said “I love you” to David (Mike Colter) in the latest Evil episode, but will it lead anywhere in Season 3? That’s iffy at this stage. When “The Demon of Parenthood” began, things were rocky between the two, following her learning about David’s work with the entity and their investigation into Rsm Fertility and Lexis (Maddy Crocco) — and Leland’s (Michael Emerson) plans for her daughter. In fact, when Kristen called David over to question him about what she learned in Episode 7, she couldn’t help but wonder if, like Leland approaching her from the beginning, he pursuing her to be an assessor alongside himself and Ben (Aasif Mandvi) was all by design, too. It wasn’t, David insisted, and she should believe him because “I tell you the truth.” But she argued that he didn’t and hadn’t,

Evil Season 3 Takes Candy from Rosemary’s Baby
This Evil review contains spoilers.

Evil Season 3 Episode 8

Evil, season 3 episode 8 “The Demon of Parenthood” is a mother of an episode. It goes so far over the top in its conspiratorial suspense the entire proceedings veer dangerously close to spoof. The opening scene between Father David (Mike Colter) and Victor LeConte (Brian d’Arcy James) would have worked on Get Smart. The circuitous language is as audaciously audible in the private confessional as the Cone of Silence at the Chief’s office at Control. The week’s case comes off as a self-parody even before the monster-of-the-week gives Ben (Aasif Mandvi) the finger.

Say what you want about Evil, it never loses its entertainment value. We may stretch imaginations or roll eyes, but we don’t look away. Some of the gore effects may be tempting, but the payoffs are always worth the effort. It is because it plays so close to comedy the fears work,

‘Evil’ Stars on Playing Demons, Kristen vs. Sheryl, and More (Video)
As the Evil cast reminded us, evil exists in the world, and their Paramount+ series just puts a demonic twist on it. Stars Katja Herbers (Kristen), Aasif Mandvi (Ben), and Christine Lahti (Sheryl) sat down with Andrea Towers in the TV Insider and TV Guide Magazine studio, sponsored by Hollywood unBranded at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 to celebrate the recent Season 4 renewal and share what they’d like to see, plus tease the remaining episodes of Season 3. Maarten de Boer Of course the question on everyone’s mind is what’s going to happen between Kristen and David (Mike Colter), who kissed in the Season 2 finale but subsequently decided not to go further … well, except for what has happened between David and demon Kristen. “We’ll continue on this slow burn kind of a path.

Evil Season 3 Episode 7 Review: The Demon of Cults

Evil Season 3 Episode 7 Review: The Demon of Cults
Possession, farting demons, blood sacrifice, soul-selling -- what didn't Evil Season 3 Episode 7 have going for it?

With each new episode, the assessors, their friends, and loved ones seem to slip closer to the belly of the beast.

The devil isn't messing around anymore, and through Leland, he's got a secure grasp on those characters we hold dear.

True to the title "The Demon of Cults," the assessors were called to help with a possessed man who was kidnapped from a cult. That seems relatively routine with possession and cults.

The family wanted their son returned, but what they got was only a fraction of him, as Owen had been possessed -- by a farting demon with an odd sense of humor.

Some strings were left dangling with the possession, as it acted more as a catalyst to get the gang inside of the Yeshua cult. David toed the line the

‘Evil’: Kristen Learns Leland’s Plan for Lexis (Recap)

‘Evil’: Kristen Learns Leland’s Plan for Lexis (Recap)
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for Evil Season 3 Episode 7 “The Demon of Cults.”] It seems that Lexis (Maddy Crocco) has more sense than Dr. Boggs (Kurt Fuller) does when it comes to Leland (Michael Emerson) on Evil. The latest episode not only brings the focus to what Leland wants with Lexis in a very real (and terrifying!) way for her mother, Kristen (Katja Herbers), but it also sees someone else getting lured to the dark side. Oh, and Ben (Aasif Mandvi) continues to have horrible luck when it comes to love. What Leland Wants With Lexis Victor Leconte’s (Brian D’Arcy James) next assignment for David (Mike Colter) is to put a toy in her room after Kristen invites him for dinner (how he knows she will is a mystery). “I didn’t agree to betray a friend and betray a friend about her f**king daughter!” David argues. But as Victor reminds him, he wanted

This Evil review contains spoilers.

Evil Season 3 Episode 7

Evil, season 3 episode 7 “The Demon of Cults” is a fully immersive and self-conscious dive into almost everything the series is about. We get the conspiracies, possessions, brainwashing, love bombing, and the promise of a snippet of Sister Andrea’s (Andrea Martin) hair. David (Mike Colter) stands up the entity. Kristen (Katja Herbers) gets an inside look into clandestine operations. Ben(Aasif Mandvi) has his come-to-Jesus moment.

The case starts at a book-signing, the root of all evil. Dr. Paul, an exit counselor with 500 successful interventions under his ever-widening belt, doesn’t believe in things like demonic possession, but has come across a case which scares him silly. Wanna look? The glee with which Dr. Paul invites David and the others to peek in on his ward, Owen, is disconcerting enough to follow anywhere. By the time the team gets to the cheap

Evil Season 3 Takes on TikTok with a Demonic Twist
This Evil review contains spoilers.

Evil Season 3 Episode 6

Evil proves you don’t have to be likable to get likes. “The Demon of Algorithms” opens with one of the most promising examples of demonic possession the series has offered so far, but it’s just clickbait to something more sinister. The monster of the week is so human it can trick artificial intelligence.

The Catholic Church’s metro area paranormal team – Father David Acosta (Mike Colter), Dr. Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers), and Ben Shakir (Aasif Mandvi) – almost come to the same conclusions in the two cases they encounter. Their initial findings lead to something diabolical enough to ready a call for clerical help. Their instincts are as wrong as they are correct in both cases, which is the underlying reason “The Demon of Algorithms” is one of the most satisfying installments of the season.

Clickbait is on the rise, by design,

‘Evil’: What Is Sheryl Doing With Andy? (Recap)
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for Evil Season 3 Episode 6 “The Demon of Algorithms.”] After the latest episode of Evil — and comments from Christine Lahti about this season — we can’t help but wonder if Sheryl’s trying to kill two birds with one stone. And by two birds, we of course mean Leland Townsend (Michael Emerson) and Andy (Patrick Brammall). It turns out we were right to wonder about that “business trip” Andy was ostensibly on in Nepal, set up by Leland and Sheryl, using Edward (Tim Matheson), and those “video chats” he had with his family. In “The Demon of Algorithm,” the case-of-the-week leads Kristen (Katja Herbers) down a rabbit hole of videos on the app VidTap about lying, cheating husbands on “business trips.” So, she reaches out to Andy, who doesn’t say much over the staticky connection, just the same ol’ “at base camp, we’re ...
