Storyline

A new doctor, Oliver Thredson, arrives at Briarcliff assigned by the courts to examine and report on Kit Walker. He's appalled by conditions he finds there and the fact that they still use electroshock to treat homosexuality. His view of how medicine is practiced is seemingly confirmed when a new patient arrives and Monsignor Howard decides that an exorcism is called for. In flashbacks, some of Sister Jude's life prior to becoming a nun is revealed. Meanwhile, Lana continues to be a threat and Sister Jude convinces Dr. Arden to give her shock therapy in the hopes it will affect her memory. Lana makes a plan to escape with her new friend Grace but it doesn't go as planned. Also, Dr. Arden engages the services of a prostitute but she can't quite seem to meet his requirements.

Dr. Arthur Arden: You're a dirty little slut with a poisonous tongue.
Shelley: I just want to go outside for 15 minutes in the sun. Please. I just want to feel the sun on my skin. I'll do anything.
Dr. Arthur Arden: No. Whores get nothing.
Shelley: Men like sex, no one calls *them* whores. I hate that word, it's so ugly! I'm into pleasure. Ever since I was five years old, and I slipped my fingers inside for the very first time. I could do it all day. My mother made me wear mittens to...
