When the Scarab unexpectedly bonds with Jaime, it transforms him into the super-powered Blue Beetle. With this newfound responsibility, Jaime must not only learn to control his abilities but also confront a threat that could endanger his family and his city.

Their lives take a horrific turn when Angela and her friend Katherine (Olivia O’Neill) disappear in the woods after attempting to contact Angela's deceased mother through a séance. 

When the girls return days later, they exhibit disturbing behavior that convinces Victor they're possessed by a demonic entity. Desperate, Victor seeks out Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn from 1973s The Exorcist), the only person who understands the depths of such evil, to help save his daughter.
