We get a portrait of a boy who simply couldn't switch it off. Again, you may think this indicates that he doesn't really believe in demons after all - that Screwtape's baddies are just a creative device for dramatizing Christian lessons. When Nikolai realizes that the man in white is no longer stuck in the trap he appears out of thin air and slits one officer's throat with a knife before knocking Nikolai unconscious and breaking the neck of the second policeman. Nikolai greets her and tells her he came to check up on her as he hadn't seen or heard from her for some time.

Wormwood is a novice tempter, and without his uncle's guidance he would want to afflict the patient with disease, or entice him into sexual depravity. Madison, a single mother, and her children, are awoken nightly by an increasingly strange and intense presence. If you think that any misdeed can nudge you along hell's gentle gradient, then - given how high the stakes are - you will soon be worrying that any deed at all, however mild it appears, could turn out to be a misdeed upon closer inspection.
