Athena wants to use the Miracle Satan Baby to heal her aunt again, which is why she's talking to Josepha and Richard. Grandma? Still hungry, I presume. It's nice that she's making the effort to look politely interested in what Athena has to say, even though she probably doesn't speak a word of English. Athena points Josepha and Richard in the direction of the church of Saint Zachariah, although she tries to warn them it would be dangerous to go there. Obviously, that will make them more interested in going there. A keen student of human nature, that Athena.
Grandma is just a keen sampler of free cafe food. You can tell she's psyched when it starts arriving. I wonder if she'll be disappointed when she finds out Richard cheaped out on her and ordered the Happy Hour chicken finger special. As he and Josepha get up to leave, the nun leans over to give Athena a kiss. I heard that in the rough cut of this episode, she used that as a distraction so Richard could rev up the car and they could run off, sticking Athena and Grandma with the check for their dinners as well. That might just be a vicious rumor, though.
Hey, are those Satanists over there? The ones who are watching them leave?
When Richard and Josepha reach the church, they are dismayed to find it abandoned and burnt out. Richard automatically jumps to the most cynical conclusion and assumes they were set up for the reward money they'd offered for information on Miracle Satan Baby. Sister Josepha is upbeat as ever. If she tells Richard to turn his frown upside down, I'll clock her. At least she's trying to be logical. When Richard scoffingly refers to the "Christ child," Josepha says she cannot be sure this baby is Jesus because the evidence just isn't there. The ship that rescued him was destroyed; the people that he healed grew sick again and died; the church that sheltered him has been burned to the ground. Is that the sort of path that the son of God would leave behind?" Good point, Jo. She speculates that this may be a "false Christ" sent by Satan. That's right: Miracle Satan Baby! What have I been telling you all along?
Josepha natters on pointlessly for a while longer until she finally gets to the good stuff. Her question: "Could God and the devil be differentiated by DNA?" We don't get to hear the answer, because the church starts falling down around them. Unfortunately, Josepha emerges unscathed. Richard is down, though. If you ask me, Josepha bored him to death.
