‘The Nun II’ brings demonic villain back into the ‘Conjuring’ world

Spoiler alert! The following post discusses important plot points and the ending of “The Nun II,” so beware if you haven’t seen it yet.

Taissa Farmiga’s Sister Irene survived another harrowing encounter with a most unholy lady in “The Nun II,” though a close friend apparently hasn’t purged the powerful evil inside him.

The latest installment of “The Conjuring” horror franchise continues a plot point from 2018’s first “Nun.” In that original 1950s-set movie, Irene was saved by helpful handyman Maurice (Jonas Bloquet) but in the aftermath he was possessed by the demonic nun Valak (Bonnie Aarons). “Nun II” picks up four years later, with Irene back in the habit of investigating sinister weirdness and traveling to a French boarding school, where she again encounters Maurice ― and that devilish woman of the cloth.

There is a happy-ish ending, but it is a “Conjuring” movie after all. Let’s break down that finale and what the mid-credits scene – with a couple of noteworthy cameos – could mean for the future of this terrifying connected world.

What happens at the end of ‘The Nun 2’?

Irene and fellow nun Sister Debra (Storm Reid) come to France to figure out what’s happening with a string of bloody church murders through Europe and discover that Valak, a fallen angel rejected by God who’s now inhabiting Maurice’s body, is seeking the eyes of St. Lucy, a powerful holy relic passed down through the lineage of the patron saint of the blind. Along the way, Irene discovers that she’s a descendant of St. Lucy. When Valak uses the eyes on Irene the demon sets her aflame, but the fire miraculously goes out.

Irene and Debra pray over a pool of wine ― since the school was once a winery, and the red stuff gets spilled during the religious melee ― and essentially turn it into the blood of Christ. The nuns use it to banish Valak back to hell, thereby freeing Maurice from her clutches and saving the day. (Maybe not for long, though.)

Is there a post-credits scene in ‘The Nun’ sequel?

Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson return once again as paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren in "The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It."

Heck, yeah! A woman’s voice is heard answering the phone and the scene opens to the home of Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga), the paranormal investigators at the center of the main “Conjuring” movies. Ed is told it’s Father Gordon (Steve Coulter), a priest who frequently works with the Warrens on their cases, and answers the phone: “Yes, Father, how can we help?”

The brief sequence seems to be pointing to the next film featuring the Warrens: “The Conjuring: Last Rites.” The title was announced in April at CinemaCon, but fans will have to wait awhile to see it: Wilson told USA TODAY in June that he “hadn’t seen anything yet” script-wise for the fourth “Conjuring” and that, while it had been in the process of being written, “we just need to wait” until the Hollywood strikes end.
