The season 2 premiere picks up the story immediately after where season 1 ended. The children are on the run. They realize that the books they have read as part of their study are going to prove to be much help to them while they are in the wild, especially the ones written by William Minerva. Emma shows other children Minerva’s pen that Norman left for them. Ray figures out how to access the coded messages in the pen. After the night falls, a massive demonic creature starts to hunt the children. Ray gets separated from others and leads the monster away from his foster siblings. The sentient demons who have been hunting the children since their escape arrive and easily kill the monster. They are about to capture Ray but a hooded figure rushes into the clearing on a horseback and leaves with Ray before the demons realize what just happened.

Elsewhere, after Emma collapses due to fever and exhaustion, a second figure shows up there. This one is visibly a woman. When Ray wakes up later in some form of a shelter, he finds Emma. After the mysterious girl comes to take them to the other children, Ray realizes both she and the one who rescued him earlier are demons.
