Episode 21 of season 8 gives a viewers a look at how various cultures and societies have dealt with the world of unseen and malevolent spirits that take possession of the bodies of humans. Whatever the approach, and whatever the spirit may be called, be it devil, demon, or some given name — the acknowledged belief is similar, that evil can manifest in a physical form and it must be done away with.

As seen in the preview video and the photo above, Brynne Larson leads a group of five teenage girls in Arizona who take on the task themselves and become engaged in battles with demons. Their solution of choice is exorcism. But they do not rely on priests in the Catholic church; they themselves become exorcists.

In South America, we will see the plight of miners in Bolivia who work in the Potosi silver mines. They believe the way they can survive unscathed is to make a deal with the devil. Meanwhile, a man in Colombia believes he suffers from demonic possession and that he has no choice but to commit suicide or seek out exorcism. But he’s looking for a kind of exorcism that his church does not sanction. Unwieldy and strange as the ritual may seem, the real question is, will it work for him?
