What do Ed and Lorraine find?

Their account of the curse is also confirmed by reports of suicides and the tragic fate of the land’s previous owners.
As they realize this isn’t a normal investigation, Ed and Lorraine return along with a detective and another expert in paranormal research, Drew. The team investigating creates devices to establish Bathsheba is in the home.
There isn’t much happening initially however, the sin in the area is evident. During the investigation, Lorraine is able to enter the cellar, where she sees the spirits of the people Bathsheba killed. Bathsheba appears to be possessed by mothers to kill their children that’s why Carolyn is the person she’s looking for.
Does the exorcism work?

The situation is becoming out of hand and, with no time left, Ed is forced to perform the exorcism on his own while the other members of the team are attempting to control the possessed Carolyn.
To everyone’s dismay, the exorcism appears to make Carolyn more hostile and difficult to deal with Her efforts in sacrificing her daughter are likely to be intensifying. After a tiringly long process, the only thing that works is when Lorraine speaks about her family’s dreams.
