Even though I know it’s kind of a weird idea, sometimes I wonder if my ex narcopath has supernatural help. When I see how he so easily manipulates people into believing his lies despite all reality and proof, I feel like he has more than normal human abilities. Sometimes I wonder if there really is such thing as demon possession or if Satan is helping him. Crazy sounding, I know! But these people seem to get away with so much evil so easily.
Last night, I was watching Criminal Minds, and there was a serial killer with an obsession with Satanic symbols. The show briefly touched on Agent Morgan’s split from the church after a bad experience, so there were some religious themes of good vs evil/ God vs Satan.
At one point in the episode, Agent Morgan asked a rhetorical question that was pretty similar to what I sometimes wonder. He said:
He caught every break possible, Rossi.
Gets released from the hospital.
His records get destroyed.
Gets pulled over with a victim in the trunk of his car, and they let him go.
I’ve never seen anyone that lucky.
Agent Rossi: What’s your point?
Agent Morgan: You been doin’ this a long time.
You’ve seen a lot of things.
You think it’s possible that Feylinn would–I don’t know.
That he was gettin’ some kind of help from somethin’ else?
Even though it’s just a show, the writer of that dialog put into words what many of us wonder in the face of evil.
