You could say that Netflix’s new supernatural series Warrior Nun came right when the country needed it most, aka when everyone was being urged back inside after another concerning spike in coronavirus cases. The comic book-based series hit the streaming service earlier this month and follows Ava (Alba Baptista), a young woman who is given a second chance at life when an angel’s halo embedded in her back revives her from the dead. She then becomes part of an elite and secret order of nuns tasked with tracking down and killing demons on Earth. In short, the crazy 10-episode first season was the perfect escape.

If you’ve already watched and fallen in love with Warrior Nun, there’s a good chance you’ve already seen Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which set the bar for subverting tropes about young women in genre shows and/or chosen ones with predetermined destinies. However, if you haven’t yet seen this iconic piece of popular culture, it parallels Ava’s story in that as the Slayer, Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) has special skills she uses to fight the powers of darkness, predominantly vampires, but plenty of other baddies show up along the way as well. What made Buffy special — her role as the Slayer, of which there was only one in every generation — alienated her much like the halo alienated and burdened the Halo-Bearers who possessed it. Buffy would eventually also rise up against her destiny like Ava, however, this destiny and the experiences it led to are what also allowed Buffy to find a family of her own.
