Michael finds himself attracted to Lisa and Lisa feels the same way. How can a demon slayer want to be with someone possessed by a demon? He should want to kill them.

He's just saved a demon - who happens to be stuck inside a woman he's wildly attracted to - which goes against all his principles. What's a demon slayer to do?
