As the miniseries concludes, Haden (Michael Massee) is on the loose and prophecies in the Book of Revelation are coming to pass, sending Massey and Sister Jo to the town of Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee, where a momentous birth is about to take place. Lampley: John Rhys Davies.
In Part 5, Massey and Sister Jo's search for the “miracle child” takes them to the forbidding Prague crypt of an exorcist whose life work was a book titled “The Birth of the Antichrist.” Meanwhile, Haden's forces storm the convent, where Olivia's drawing again; at the prison, Haden's acting up again; and in Rome, a woman identifying herself as a State Welfare representative offers to help Anna-Theresa find her child.
Part 4. Odd events continue to snowball, from a star---“on steroids, growing bigger and brighter every day,” as Lampley (John Rhys-Davies) puts it---to a “rash of miraculous pregnancies.” Meanwhile, Haden (Michael Massee) makes an electrifying court appearance; and Massey (Bill Pullman) finds out why Haden kidnapped Lucy and Hawk (Mark Rendall). Sister Jo: Natascha McElhone. Torvald Eklind: Jesper Christianson. Gunnar Eklind: Alexander Skarsgard.
Part 3. In Italy, Massey and Sister Jo find the mother of the “miracle child.” Meanwhile, Haden's forces kidnap Hawk (Mark Rendall). Lampley: John Rhys-Davies. Volk: Bill Tobin. Anna Theresa: Winter Ave Zoli. Exquisite Corpse: Clemence Posey. Cardinal Laveigh: Christopher Biggins. Ogden: Fred Durst.
In Part 2, Sister Jo (Natascha McElhone), with a skeptical Massey (Bill Pullman) in tow, spirits Olivia out of the hospital and takes her to Sister Jo's convent, where Massey learns about the mission. Biblical prophecies about “the end of days” are playing out, she says. But, she adds: “I believe the Bible left a `blank,' to be filled in by man.” He signs on and they head to the Greek island Patmos, in search of a “miracle baby” who was the only survivor of a shipwreck.
Apocalypse now? In Part 1 of this six-part theological thriller, signs that “the end of days” is at hand begin to appear, including a shadow of a crucifix on a Mexican mountain; an infant who (miraculously, it seems) survives a shipwreck; and strange utterances in Latin from a brain-dead girl. They attract religious scholar Sister Josepha (Natascha McElhone)and reluctant astrophysicist Richard Massey (Bill Pullman), who is licking his wounds: His daughter was murdered by Satanists.
