‘Evil‘ examines the skepticism and faith of its characters through complex paranormal investigations and inexplicable incidents that the trio of Kristen, David, and Ben try to solve. In the series, Sister Andrea serves as a mentor to David as he stumbles to find his connection with God and examines his faith countless times.
In the third season, Sister Andrea comes under scrutiny from the Church authorities, who try to determine whether her health is deteriorating. Given the plot development, viewers must be worried about Sister Andrea’s health and actress Andrea Martin’s future on the show. If you seek explanations in those regards, here is everything we have gathered on the matter! SPOILERS AHEAD!
Does Sister Andrea Have Dementia?
Sister Andrea first appears in the second episode of ‘Evil’ season 2, titled ‘A Is for Angel.’ She is a veteran nun who can see demons. In the second season, she helps David understand his connection to God and the meaning of his visions. She becomes a passive figure in the Church Assessors’ investigations and often imparts wisdom when needed. However, in the third episode of season 3, Sister Andrea helps Kristen with counseling a couple experiencing intimacy issues due to a demon’s presence. Leland suggests to Monseigneur Matthew that Sister Andrea is losing her mind after he sees her talking to an imaginary figure.
While Kristen states nothing is wrong with Sister Andrea, the Church Authorities try to force her into early retirement in the fourth episode.

Therefore, it would be unwise to write off the fan-favorite character on the verge of such an exciting storyline. Moreover, neither Martin nor the show’s producers have given any indication that the actress is leaving the show.
