In the second episode titled ‘The Demon of Memes’, Kristen, David, and Ben face the horrors of the internet as they investigate a Slender Man-style meme that scares teens into committing blasphemous acts in order to avoid death. The episode begins with David being approached by Victor LeConte (Brian d’Arcy James), the mysterious man who appeared in Season 2. He is revealed to be working in the Vatican Secret Service. David was told not to question what he’d been told to do, only to do what he’d been asked. David enquires if he is being recruited in the 'Entity', to which Victor replies that they are not 'Entity'. Victor tells David that he will be assigned a task next week by the Vatican. He also warns David to not disclose their deal to anyone. Meanwhile, the team investigates an Internet meme called ‘Visiting Jack’. The meme assigns an individual seven tasks in seven days or it will kill the person. A freshman kid named Wayne committed suicide and his parents suspect the online game to be the reason.
While investigating the Visiting Jack, David gets a call from the Vatican to perform a task. His task leads him to meet a boy who lost his scholarship and can't afford dorms. Ben and Kristen notice David's strange behavior and enquire if he is alright. However, he does not tell them about Victor and lies that everything is fine.
Towards the end of the episode, David meets Victor. Victor tells David that he needs to save a messenger named Grace Ling. Victor explains that the Vatican believes Grace is a prophet. She was deported back to China and was lost at a work camp. The Vatican has located her and asked David’s help to recover her. Will Kristen and Ben find out that David is working with the Entity? Stay tuned to the next episode of 'Evil'.
