When this episode began, I was half expecting some crazy monster raised from hell to pop out of the dumpster. But, to my surprise, it was Metatron. And it seems as though he isn’t the only surprise in store for us, as a big bomb is also dropped. Metatron is sent to one of God’s bars where Chuck, the prophet and writer of the Supernatural book series is waiting. As Metatron speaks to Chuck, we find out his big secret: HE IS GOD! Chuck, the dorky writer with the cult following has been God this whole time! Who saw that coming? I certainly didn’t. And he only seems to be worried about writing his autobiography. When Metatron tells him about Amara being on the loose, he seems scared, annoyed, and jealous all at once. I guess sibling rivalry is even present with God himself.
Unfortunately for everyone else, Amara is hell bent on getting God’s attention. She also whipped up that nasty fog again. The one that takes over and changes people into angry, zombie like shadows of themselves. Fortunately, the Winchesters are aware of it and are working with the local sheriff where it’s occurring.
Checking back in with God as he writes his autobiography we find out what made him start creating life. In the beginning when it was just him and Amara he said he was lonely. She represents nothingness, where as he is “being.” So, he thought by creating angels, worlds, and all sorts of beautiful things it would spark a change in Amara that would make her less dark. We can see how well that worked out, seeing as she destroyed everything before they locked her up. We also see the admiration God still seems to carry for Lucifer, who he says was never a villain. So maybe everyone who keeps saying Lucifer is God’s favorite is right? I mean after all, like Metatron points out, he was the only one God trusted with “The Mark” as well destroying Amara. It makes me wonder how big his reaction will be when God finds out Lucifer has been captured by Amara, but I guess we will have to wait. As of right now, God’s plan is to wipe everything clean and start over, Noah’s ark style. That seems a little dramatic to me.
Speaking of dramatic, it must run in the family because Amara is just as bad as God in the drama department. She sent a message through a sheriff deputy who was affected by the Fog. She tells them the fog isn’t an illness, it’s a mirror. It shows people the truth and soon everyone would know the light was a lie. She said it would all be over soon, gone forever. All except Dean of course; Amara has a special connection to him.
Oh, and that bar God created? Apparently it is an Amara free zone. She can’t get access thanks to God’s enchantment. Which must be nice because back on Earth that fog is taking over, big time. Sam and Dean do their best to keep it out of the sheriff's office they turned into a makeshift safe zone. But, unfortunately one of the vents they blocked with duct tape came open, and Sam was affected by the fog. This is all part of Amara’s plan; it has to be. She knows she needs to get Sam away from Dean if she wants to gain access to him. And as Dean sits as Sam’s side, it becomes apparent, Dean doesn’t get affected by the fog. Maybe because he once wore “The Mark”? As God is singing in his bar, Dean notices he isn’t getting sick and starts yelling for the fog to stop. All the people affected by the fog who were trying to get into the sheriff's office immediately stop and the fog leaves. Dean’s amulet that only shines when God is present, begins to light up. All the people who had died magically come back to full health. And then we see him: Chuck, who we know as God, is now down on Earth with Sam and Dean and he tells them, “We need to talk.”
Talk about cliffhanger!
