Cut to Arden's office, where he's "working" on Shelley some more. She's far gone enough that she can't even manage to scream to whoever's on the phone. Not that I suspect it would matter much, since it's Monsignor Howard and his conspiratorial tone suggests he's well aware of Dr. Arden's extracurriculars. "They're on to you," Howard says. He tells Arden to take care of whatever "housekeeping" needs taking care of, and to do it now.
After the break, Sister Jude is out on the grounds, walking with the heretofore unseen Mother Superior, who appears to be one of the few unambiguously good authority figures on this show. Jude is telling her about her failings, about her falling back into the bottle. Mother Superior says all the expected things about how God tests us but he also likes to see us triumph. Jude then moves on to the real issue: her suspicions that one of her co-workers is a sadist and possibly a war criminal. Mother Superior asks if she's gone to her superiors and Jude tells her about Monsignor Howard's inaction. Mother Superior goes on about the patriarchy for a moment, saying men have self-preservation instincts and won't confront the truth or something. She tells Jude that she knows someone who might be of some help, but Jude doesn't want to go behind the back of the man who she says saved her. Mother Superior takes a stern tone with Jude and tells her not to credit Howard with saving her. When she came to the convent, she was at the end of her rope, but she had a moral compass and that's what God gave her. Now God had put obstacles in her path and it's up to her to clear that path of debris. I really liked this scene. It's fun to have Sister Jude be a gargoyle and representative of everything awful about the church and the country's attitude towards the sick, but the show has been careful to also paint her as striving for some kind of good, tunnel-visioned as that striving may be.
