Well, he can and does, quite often, but he doesn't stay that way long.

Second, Eddie runs the Gehenna Room, a nightclub with a strict "no demons allowed" policy.

But blessings and curses don't look all that different these days.

When one of Eddie's old pals shows up seeking sanctuary, Eddie knows he's in for a double-cross.

That means walking the line between salvation and damnation once more.
