In the first half, George Noory was joined by author Tom Allen who researched the real life case that the movie/book The Exorcist was based on. The strange events began in January, 1949, when a house in Maryland was under a kind of siege. A 13-year-old boy seemed to be possessed, objects were flying around in the rooms, a scratching as though from inside the walls was heard, and there was a bumping behind a painting of Jesus, he recounted. The family met with a Catholic priest who had the boy checked into the Georgetown University hospital. The boy, who was strapped into the bed, bent a spring in the bed and slashed the priest's arm as he was reciting the prayers of Exorcism.
After the word "Louis" appeared as though scratched in on the boy's chest, the family traveled to St. Louis where they had relatives, Allen continued. There, he underwent further exorcisms with Jesuit priests, Father William S. Bowdern and Father Walter Halloran, who kept a diary of the events from March and April, 1949. During the possession, the boy was said to always have his eyes closed, yet was able to punch and spit at the priests, with great accuracy. Allen also spoke about other incidents, such as a mass possession that occurred to a group of nuns at a convent in the 1600s.
In the latter half, researcher Karin Anderson shared her insights about biblical prophecy and ancient texts, as well as her participation in an archeology dig with Vendyl Jones. The Book of Enoch was found in scroll fragments in a Qumran Cave. Enoch, who also appears in the book of Genesis, was called the 'Great Initiator,' taught archeo-astronomy to priests, and was said to find the "pit of hell." This location, it was learned from satellite photography, is underneath Gilgal in Israel, she said, adding that Leviathan will eventually be cast into this pit.
Regarding prophecy in the Bible, she pointed toward a start date for a major war in the Middle East-- March 20-21, 2015, as well as cited a prophecy found on a Qumran scroll for an upcoming 40-year war. Anderson also touched on such topics as the Red Heifer, gnostic texts, and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem.
