    For example, the Plague Doctor doll is set in the children's bedroom. In the first episode, the Plague Doctor can be spotted several times in Flora's bedroom.

    In the second episode titled "The Pupil," Miles asks his teacher if demons need permission to enter either pigs or man, as discussed in the gospel they are reviewing. He is told that everyone is free to make their own choices, so permission is needed for a demon or spirit to enter a body. This was how Peter gets his idea to enter the children of Bly Manor.
