30 Coins Season 1 Recap
The first season of the 30 Coins introduces the characters as well as the fanatical setting of the world. The plot is heavily focused on an apocalypse or extinction-level religious conspiracy. As the title implies, 30 silver coins are the centerpiece of the series, these coins come from the biblical story of how Judas was asked to betray Jesus in return for 30 coins. The coins however had immense power and if they were to fall into the wrong hands could very well bring unimaginable horror upon the world. To counter the evil forces and keep them at bay a team is formed. This evil force is an organization that worships Judas as their lord and their ultimate goal is to collect all 30 coins that have been scattered around the globe.
One of the main protagonists of the series, Father Vergara, is in possession of one such coin. He is an ex-boxer and priest who was sent to jail for a failed exorcism and was later banished to a Spanish town in some remote corner of the country. Along with his arrival in the town, bizarre and horrifying incidents start to take place.
The season ended rather violently, leaving behind the question of whether Father Vergara was even alive.
