On the anniversary of her police officer father's death at the hands of a psychotic cult, rookie cop Jessica Loren is about to start her first night on the job, despite her mother's protests. Her job is simple, really: it's the old police station's last shift, and she just has to keep watch until the hazmat crew comes and picks up the leftover evidence. What could possibly go wrong?

-->'''John Michael''': Devil's just another bitch of the Lord. Rebel angel that was cast out. I am not ashamed. But he is downstairs doing the Lord's work just like the rest of them. Punishing the damned for their sins. That sounds like the Lord's work to me. But the answer is no. We don't pray to him. Devil's been around long before that clipped-wing cock-sucker got down there. Who do you think was there before him?

Added DiffLines:

** Quite possibly the homeless man too, who is definitely on a mission that's never explained.


* HopeSpot: Just when things are really going wrong, Jessica is visited by a kind and sympathetic cop who seems to know something is wrong with the precinct building and who looks like he will look out for her. [[spoiler: But then she learns he has the same name and rank as a cop killed by the Peymon family...]]

* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Cohen's outburst being the first thing we see of him makes him seem like he's hiding something sinister, but he turns out to be unrelated to the events. For a split second after he shoots Jessica, we can believe that he's secretly a member of the cult, but shortly after is TheReveal that Jessica's been killing innocent people.]]
** [[spoiler:Marigold's knowledge of the cult and the fact that she's a woman in a plot about a cult full of woman could have meant that she was part of the cult, but she's merely there to provide some exposition and is never seen again.]]


* ShootTheShaggyDog: Jessica spends the night trying to overcome the ghosts [[spoiler: only to get shot by Sgt. Cohen after being tricked into killing the hazmat crew and then being taken by the Paymon family as she dies.]]



** Aside from that, a number of viewers found the most interesting character to be the homeless guy that kept breaking into the station. Why was he there? Why was he intent on perusing the papers in the evidence lockers?
