Synopsis: In O Ye of Little Faith, Ben leaps into a priest who has been called to assist a family in crisis on Halloween night. As he delves into mysterious and inexplicable events, he’s forced to muster all his resources as a scientist before time runs out.
Ben leaps into the body of Father Davonport who has been called to the home of the Gray family to conduct an Exorcism on Daisy Gray who has supposedly been possessed by a Demon. However, when something to do with the Quantum Leap imaging chamber goes wrong. It leaves Ben trapped in the 1930s without any help or intelligence from Addison to back him up. So without any help from the 21st century. Ben has to rely on his knowledge of science in order to try and prove that there is nothing supernatural at play.
We get some great supporting performances in this episode. Specifically from the guest cast. Kerri Medders is absolutely demonic as Daisy who has been supposedly possessed by a Demon, which is of Jewish origin. A bit later in the episode, we learn that the homes maid Magda Pardo (Colleen Foy) had left a dead fish under Daisy’s bed as protection from the demon. Which winds up being somewhat of a pivot point for the episode’s plot.
Raymond Lee proves that he can go it alone as Ben as he gets very little support from Addison on this one.
O Ye of Little Faith is another strong outing for the series, which feels like it is beginning to find its own vibe now while retaining a little of the humor from the original series. Talking of which we get a nice reference to the original in which Ben says that Sam believed that God was controlling his leaps, which is a plot device from the original that I always really liked.
A really big part of this episode was Ben’s absolute desperation to prove that there was a scientific explanation for Daisy’s condition, which is an element that played out really well. Although I kind of didn’t want for Ben to find it as I think it just would have been more fun to lean into the supernatural in much the same way as the classic series would have.
In previous weeks. We’ve seen the team trying to find out what Janis Calavicci is up to. Well, she has a little bit of a role to play in this episode as she tries to reach out to Ben toward the end of the episode. Might we be finding out what her plan is fairly soon? I hope so as I would like to learn more about her as she is seemingly the only connection to the original series that we are likely to get for a while.
