One of the main storylines of “Evil” is the demonic trope of the child explored by young Lexis Bouchard (Maddy Crocco). Lexis is Bouchard’s only child to be conceived through the dubious RSM Fertility, who may or may not be a genetically engineered demon child. As Lexis matures, she develops teeth so sharp that she requires oral surgery, and she soon begins to realize that she has a demonic, reptilian tail that no one else seems to see – two signs that she may be half-demon.
Despite the fact that her grandmother Sheryl and Leland seem to be working together to groom her for a demonic path, fans can’t help but notice that Lexis’ demonic traits don’t seem to outweigh her good nature. She has no problem throwing Leland under the bus time and time again, selling him to his mother, and plotting with her sisters to burn down her Bumblebee Valley home. When Sheryl decides to test Lexis by introducing her to the Manager Demon in Season 3’s “The Demon of Parenthood”, Lexis is unresponsive to her demonic form, giving her a friendly smile and politely handing her a box of cookies. Sheryl quickly reports her findings to Leland, telling him, “I think you’re wrong about Lexis.” But many fans are not so easily convinced.
While Lexis once hid her cock under baggie clothes and was often seen isolating herself from her sisters, she seems to be more confident and self-aware towards the end of Season 3, almost as if she understands. who she is and didn’t want to play. Leland’s game. As Redditor u/marycem put it, “Maybe she’s like Sr Andrea and sees them everywhere so she won’t bother her.” And as several other Redditors have observed, free will — a central theme in Judeo-Christian theology — could play a role in Lexis’ story.
