** Grace had mentioned that they aren't perfect and they make mistakes. [[spoiler: And Kit's cancer could have been a cover story so that nobody would try too hard to look for him after he disappeared for good.]]


** Remember, the Devil has the ability to see into others' memories and desires; Satan simply looked into Mary Eunice's memories and recited them as if they belonged to him, which makes sense since he was posing as her at the time. As for the personal tone Satan took while saying all that, perhaps the Devil simply likes play-acting?
* So was Charlotte Anne Frank or not? Because how did she know that, not only was Arden actually a Nazi, but she also knew his real name. There was no further explanation given for this at all as far as I can remember...

* What exactly is the nature of the position of Mary Eunice? Like at times it seems like the demon possessing her has complete control over her but at other times it seems more like it's influencing her actions more and that she's still got some form of free will even if it's just to do evil things. Some evidence to support the latter would be her recounting stories of being embarrassed in her youth to Jenny or the whole bit with "You Don't Own Me" and the crucifix.

** Perhaps he only killed a certain amount of people in each house and left some alive (which has to be it, because if he killed entire, typical 3-5 person families, the number should be ''much'' higher than 15)? And then maybe he tied up the ones he left alive so he'd have time to move to another house and kill more.

**Presumably Mother Superior explained the situation to the driver. All she had to say was "The woman I'm bringing you doesn't belong in Briarcliff, no matter what anyone else tells you. You drive away once she's in your car."

Added DiffLines:

*** Or a time saver. Rather than explain that nuns take on new names when they join, just as an explanation for that one bit, it could have just been easier to call her "Mary Eunice" there as well.


* Lee killed 15 different people from 8 different families in one night. How is that even possible?

** This bothered me as well. Revealing herself to him while he could easily have waved the taxi driver to a stop was idiotic on her part, and on his for just standing there as if he was not mere feet away from her.

** [[spoiler: During The Devil's brief lapses in control, we find out Mary Eunice is at least aware she's possessed, which means she could be aware of what The Devil is doing with her body. The Devil was likely acting sensual to further upset the "gynephobe" Sister Mary.]]
