“No one’s ever gonna believe this unless they see it.”
[Editor's note: The following contains spoilers through the finale of Midnight Mass.]So, how about that boat scene in Episode 5 of Midnight Mass?
After accidentally walking in on Pruitt (Hamish Linklater) and the “angel” in the rec center, Riley (Zach Gilford) is attacked and turned. The Monsignor attempts to convince Riley that their resurrection and renewal is for the better, and that they’re doing His will. Pruitt sends Riley on his way, hopeful he’ll find courage and embrace what Pruitt believes is a gift. Instead, Riley takes Erin (Kate Siegel) out on a boat in the bay, tells her everything that happened to him and then lets the sunrise burn him alive.
