The next day, Jason goes missing and David searches for him on the Ghost Highway. During the search, David is attacked by a demon but he is saved by a vision of an Angel. Towards the end of the episode,  the trio discovers a garage with a drone and other equipment being used to create the illusion of haunting experiences on the highway. They come to the conclusion that the Demon of the Road is fake and is just an illusion. The man behind this is Russ Owlman who wanted to create chaos among the truck drivers.

Later at night, David is visited by Victor LeConte who reveals the truth about the events on the highway. He says that Russ Owlman has died by suicide. LeConte mentions that Russ was a part of one of the Demonic Houses and therefore, he had to be killed so no one can spread evil in the world. David realizes that LeConte killed Russ and is disgusted by his actions. However, LeConte explains that the Vatican Agents have been destroying the Demonic Houses for centuries as a part of their plan to bring world peace. The episode ends with David having a moral dilemma due to his association with the Vatican.
