After the murder of his dog, a mysterious vampire appears, and many believe it was Father Paul himself who poisoned the dog. It seems like a chilling twist to an already gruesome tale, and yet, it also raises more questions than answers.
One of the mysteries in the new series centers on the identity of the mysterious priest, who in actuality is Reverend Monsignor John Michael Pruitt, a priest who’s served St. Patrick’s Catholic Church for decades. Despite the fact that Father Paul is forty years younger than the congregation, the clergy and parishioners don’t recognize him. But a key clue to his true identity is dropped early in the series: the elderly mom of Dr. Sarah Gunning had once had a romantic relationship with Father Paul. She addresses him by his true name and makes references to Christ’s suffering as the price for eternal life.
In the second episode of The Haunting of Hill House, the town of Mildred is attacked by a mysterious figure.
