At the start of Servant Season 3, the haunted house that the Turners and mighty Leanne live in has become much more sinister and dangerous.
At the start of Season 3 of Servant, Leanne found herself in the Turners’ house, still paranoid. She knew that after Aunt Josephine and Uncle George died last season, the Church of Minor Saints would send more cultists to bring her back and possibly kill Sean and Dorothy. Unfortunately, although Leanne tried to find ways to fortify the family and prevent further murders, their haunted house became much more dangerous after a burglary.
Leanne spent most of the first alone, drinking wine and trying to calm her emotions as Sean, Dorothy and Julian took baby Jericho on a beach vacation. However, she continued to find dead butterflies in her room, unable to resuscitate them. This confirmed that she had lost that power, which worried her, as she didn’t know if she could become human Jericho again if he reverted to his doll form.
Unfortunately, while Leanne was allaying her fears, a thief broke in, sending her into a state of panic. She hid in the basement, but unfortunately it was next to Josephine’s body. It was hidden in the walls, the family could not get rid of it without attracting the attention of the neighbors. Now, that’s the source of all those moths coming out, which left Leanne wondering if the corpse, which isn’t in an advanced state of decomposition, was poisoning the house and, more so, her abilities.
Her presence may be what dries up her powers, suggesting that the moths are vessels for Josephine’s dark will. After all, Josephine and George tried to kill Leanne and take her power back for the cult because they didn’t like the way she used it behind their backs to give the Turners a child. To them, her desire to be part of the family was utter heresy and a sin their God wanted Leanne to pay for.
Luckily, the cops arrived with Sean’s help, but Leanne realized the dagger left behind by the cult was missing. This meant that they could now have the blade in their possession again to kill her using the aforementioned ritual. Also, Leanne can tell that the house is now out of balance. Everything became clear in the final moments; she spotted a mud hole in the basement bubbling up again, reaffirming that punishment was coming.
To make matters worse, she can’t predict what else in the house will go haywire, especially with the corpse stuck as a gruesome memory that teases the pain, horror, and grief to come. Seeing her like this also left an indelible mark on the Turners, because if she’s scared, it means their biggest defense is now vulnerable.
