Recap[edit | edit source]

It's two months after Henry destroyed Morloch, and Ichabod and Abbie begin to wonder if their role has been completed. While investigating blighted crops, they encounter an angel named Orion (Max Brown) who they learn had spent 200 years in Purgatory after being captured in battle with the Horseman of Death. Believing him to be the answer to their problems, Abbie decides to take him to where Abraham is being held. However, Katrina reveals to the group that she wishes to separate him from the Horseman and make him human again. Believing Abraham's life to be in danger, Katrina tells Abraham of her plan and frees him. With the help of Hawley, Abbie and Orion locate Abraham and Abbie learns that he had been around during times of catastrophe in human history, and of his plan to take the Horseman of Deaths power. During the battle, Orion incapacitates Abraham and attempts to steal his power, Ichabod uses the horseman's axe to break his weapon and hands back the axe to Abraham. Believing that Ichabod and Abbie have sided with Abraham, Orion escapes. After the battle, Abraham is stopped by Katrina from attacking Ichabod and agrees to her decision to try to make him human again.

Title[edit | edit source]

  • In Fox Japan's website, "Paradise Lost" was incorrectly written as "What Lies Beneath."
    • The episode is given the Japanese title of An Angel has Descended (舞い降りた天使 Mai Orita Tenshi) and it moreover refers to Orion.
    • The US Title "Paradise Lost" is reference to a poem written by 17th century poet John Milton which tells about the events in the book of Genesis regarding both the Fall of Man and of Satan.

Cultural References[edit | edit source]

  • Do not be confused when comparing Orion to the character in Greek mythology. The fallen angel has no relation to the legend who had the constellation named after him.
