What Can We Expect from the Plot of ‘The Nun 2’?
In the first part, Sister Irene and Father Burke embarked on an investigation into the untimely demise of a nun within the confines of Saint Cartha’s monastery in Romania. As their inquiry delves deeper, Sister Irene confronts the malevolent demon, only for it to elude capture by taking control of an unsuspecting delivery man named Maurice, also known as Frenchie. Curiously, the video footage of Frenchie’s exorcism, shown during Ed and Lorraine Warren’s seminars two decades later, brings forth chilling visions of Ed’s impending demise for Lorraine.
Set four years after the events of the initial film, the upcoming part leaves us in anticipation of the horrors the demon will unleash while inhabiting its new host. The extent to which Maurice’s narrative will be explored in this chapter remains a tantalizing mystery, with the possibility of his exorcism bridging the narratives of both The Conjuring and The Nun, creating a captivating interweaving of the storylines. We eagerly await to see how this connection unfolds.
