Constantine has a lot more on his plate to handle than just a couple of demons.

While John Constantine spent most of his television debut helping Liv Aberdine, creative decisions behind the scenes led to that character being written off the show. Instead, John will have to contend with Zed, a psychic and character from the original Hellblazer comics who will join up with John to help him fight the forces of evil.

In Constantine‘s second episode, “The Darkness Beneath,” John returns to his hotel room to find his unexpected guest, Zed, played by Angelica Celaya, waiting for him. The two’s first meeting hints that they’ve taken a mutual interest in one another. While they may have never met face to face, they’re not strangers.

Constantine airs Friday at 10 p.m. on NBC.
