As Amandla Stenberg takes a backseat in Episode 3, her character's younger self is front and center in the new episode. 

Leah Brady stars as the young version of Mae Aniseya in "Destiny," showcasing more of her ruthless ways as a child and her chosen path to becoming a witch. 

Mae successfully participated in the Ascension, a ceremony that converts a person into a full-blown witch. 

Episode 3 also revealed how Mae's drastic actions of setting fire to Osha's room led to the death of Mother Aniseya and the witches in Brendok.

Lauren Brady brings the younger version of Osha to life in The Acolyte Episode 3.

It is clear that Osha does not want to live a life that she never chose in the first place and the arrival of Master Indara and the others in Brendok allowed her to embrace her interest in wielding the Force as a Jedi. 

Lauren Brady can be seen in Midnight at the Paradise, Wake, and Strangers.
