In Evil Season 4 Episode 5, Captain LeMeyer was first coined by Tori, a fellow flight attendant who worked with Vicky. Given the trio was unaware of the person, Vicky’s friends unveiled that LeMeyer was a fabled ghost, who often haunts people mostly involved in the aviation industry.

Some of Vicky’s friends claimed that they had seen him during their work, while others dismissed it as superstition. In reality, there are many legendary ghost stories indeed, but there is no mention of the ghost pilot, Captain LeMeyer, anywhere.

Thus it is confirmed that LeMeyer is an original character of the Evil franchise. David was the only one out of the trio who had encountered the fabled ghost while he was returning to his hometown with his team from Italy.

During the turbulence, supposedly caused by an evil entity, David saw Captain LeMeyer, donning his formal clothes and bearing a disfigured face. After relaying this to his team, Ben stated that it was the lightning strikes playing tricks on his eyes.

David eventually got his hands on the holy water he received from Father Dominic and sprinkled it over the box carrying the relic. Surprisingly the box melted whilst emitting a pungent smoke and eventually, the turbulence was stopped.

Since the beginning of the episode, the relic that the trio encountered at Vicky’s house was considered to be a portion of Jesus Christ’s original cross. David, Ben, and Kristen got to learn about this after they were called to be at the Church where Father Dominic finally revealed himself to the rest of the members.

Dominic said that the trio had to escort the relic back to the Vatican by themselves, which was pretty much an order by him. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts and flying miles away from home, they and the Vatican were disappointed to learn that the relic was a fake.

The trio was to take the relic back to the U.S. and suddenly while they were in mid-air, David received a call from Dominic who informed him that it was the box that was the relic, not what was inside. Dominic further explained to him in brief that the box was demonic and belonged to Kukeri.

Kukeri are described as elaborately costumed Bulgarian men, who wear oversized fur costumes to completely cover their bodies and they cover their faces with wooden masks. Around New Year and before Lent, the Kukeri perform a dancing ritual to scare away evil spirits.

Before the call ended, Dominic revealed that the box was part of a big collection being brought into New York, which would be assembled in the service of the ultimate corruption. Dominic also disclosed that the evil already made it to New York.
