Her mother has taken her to countless doctors and none of them can clearly diagnose her. The only option remaining for Chloe is to be hospitalized. Lauren realizes that Chloe might be possessed and needs an exorcism. But when Reverend Young refuses to help them, Lauren and The Chosen decide to take matters into their own hands... except that not all of the girls are doing it to save Chloe. When it becomes evident that Olivia is performing the ritual to hurt her, it's up to Lauren to truly save Chloe.
