Netflix Series Review: Warrior Nun

Religious conspiracies and secret societies have always intrigued me. The combination of historical facts with century-old myths and legends just fascinated me.

Summary

An orphaned quadriplegic nineteen year old, who was sent to the local church’s crypt due to her sudden death, woke up. Surprised that she could walk, she soon discovered that she had supernatural powers. This was all because she was accidentally given the Halo. With the Halo, Ava had become the Warrior Nun.

Themes

1) loyalty: The nuns were constantly being torn between blind loyalty towards their own beliefs and what they were made to believe. On the contrary, Ava grew up alone since her car accident. She only had one friend, which was a sick little boy living in the same room as her. Loyalty to this one friendship was all she ever knew.

As she laid on the bed daily, she was able to watch many television shows that increased her knowledge of the outside world. She also owned many books on her bookshelf, which I presumed her roommate, Diego read to her daily.

This vast amount of knowledge actually helped her to differentiate blind loyalty and true loyalty to herself. This was important for her to be able to make the correct choices in a split second.

2) good versus evil: The battle between good and evil was a persistent topic in history, both facts and myths. The most mind-boggling point was what was deemed good or evil in history could be altered depending on what was emphasized.

No one was perfect. Humans were humans and could make grave mistakes. The tug of war between good and evil was perpetual.

Does the end justify the means?

Yay Or Nay

I didn’t plan to finish this series in one day, but I did. Watching this girl making some insanely questionable decisions at the beginning reminded me of how growing up as a teenager was….. Throw in those balancing acts of the conscience and tons of guilt, it was a bit like a rollercoaster ride.

It’s definitely a YAY!
