She's probably saying something positive, yes, but I can't catch it. All I hear is something like "... see it" at the end. I can't hear ...
 When he said "possessed by...", she said something like "he's hitting" at the same time.
Right after she said what you think is "...see it", he said "the devil", which I heard clearly.
