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.
