What Happened in Helstrom till now? A Quick Recap
The series revolves around siblings Daimon and Ana Helstrom. Both have supernatural abilities, inherited from their demonic father. Daimon can create mystical flammable energy that can burn demons and devastate them from their human devices, while Ana has self-sufficient abilities that allow her to feed off the energy of other creatures.
The narrative between the siblings’ childhood and the present goes back and forth. We learn that as children, they were tortured by their fathers to bring out their innate abilities. At one point, he takes Ana and goes on a murder spree across the country. He later became his companion, often acting as bait to lure his victims.
As an adult, Daemon lives in Portland and is a moralist professor at a local university. He is also the secular exorcist, working closely with the head of the St. Teresa Center for Mental Health, Louise Hastings (June Cariel). Damon and Ana’s mother, Victoria (Elizabeth Marvel), is a patient in St. Teresa known as a mother, known as a powerful, rogue entity two decades a go.
Daemon tried several times to drive the demon out of his body but was unsuccessful each time. On the other hand, Ana is living in San Francisco and runs an ancient business with her childhood friend Chris Yen (Ellen Uy). Unlike the daemon who has sufficient control over her powers, Ana has made her abilities more unstable and dangerous.

Due to Hastings’ declining health, Dymon finds a new companion, the Vatican agent Gabriella Rosetti (Ariana Guevara). It is later revealed that Hastings has lung cancer. The yen gets near a keeper’s skull, a relatively less maleistic species of demons that can be used to seal other demons.
The siblings manage to destroy the demon they believe to be their father with a skull, only to find out that it is in fact the mother’s son. She manipulates them into thinking that their father has returned, so she can escape from the mental facility and acquire a new host.

There, he is ambushed by an ancient and secret demon-fighting organization known as Blood, of which Henry (AKA The Caretaker) is a member. He easily subjugates them but lets them go with the warning that if they had gone after his sister, he would not have left them.
