As the episode begins, I am anxious with anticipation knowing the last episode ended with the Winchesters meeting God. (Who prefers to be called Chuck.) I was all in my feels as the conversation between Chuck and Dean progressed. I mean who else could be so honest, kind of rude, yet vulnerable when speaking to God himself? Sam looked terrified by his brother’s candid approach, but Chuck wasn’t phased. That is until they brought up Lucifer, then he became quite in his feelings. It seems that really is a very touchy subject for God, and can you blame him?
Speaking of touchy subjects, I wasn’t too surprised to see Amara appear to Dean considering their weird connection. She knows showing him Castiel’s vessel in the rough shape it is in would spark something in him, perhaps grabbing God’s attention; who she already knows is near. And it is also beginning to seem like she is a one trick pony as she once again decides to whip up the fog. Metatron sees the news covering the last time she made the fog appear, and he sees Sam and Dean with Chuck. This sets off a light bulb for him as he calls Dean to tell him he wants to talk about something regarding Chuck-God, and it seems to be important. And did I mention the conversation he wants to have, he is insists be in person? I’m hoping it’s not some kind of trap.
Meanwhile back with Sam and Dean they talk to a professor, Donatello that was there when the latest fog hit. But instead of being affected by the fog in the normal way, Donatello was struck by lightning and filled with knowledge. Looks like after God released Kevin’s soul to heaven in the beginning of the episode the next prophet was born, and he is not happy about being a part of this. I would think someone who was involved in the pursuit of higher education such as a professor would be cool with all this new knowledge and abilities? The self-proclaimed former atheist was all but falling at the feet of the “celestial magnificence” known as God, which I find quite humorous.
Metatron brings Sam and Dean God’s autobiography, or as he calls it, his suicide note. He tells them God plans to sacrifice himself and let Amara do as she wishes. Dean confronts good old Chuck-God who was quite confused because as he says, “You think I’m a dick, why do you care?” Chuck explains he doesn’t plan to die, he will strike a deal; he will go to the cage so he can free all of his creations. He insists Amara’s beef is with him, and it should work. Dean is not happy with this answer at all, nor am I. This plan does not seem like it will work, not after all Amara has said. God insists if his plan doesn’t work, humans will have to step up. Sam, Dean, and the other “chosen” will find a way. He goes on to explain that that is why he saved him all those years ago; the Winchesters are a firewall between light and dark. Talk about a heavy bomb to drop… that is a lot of pressure.
Like I would, Dean begs God to step up; it has to be him to defeat Amara. Dean then talks to Donatello about getting Lucifer, and how this needs to be the way to draw God in. Metatron insists on being a part of all this; so let’s just hope he doesn’t mess it up. Now they need to get to Amara, and she has been wanting to meet up with Dean, so that wouldn’t be hard. Thanks to their new-found prophet and his tracking ability, they were able to find Lucifer. He is more than happy to go against Amara after all she’s done.
Amara is doing her best to get Dean to be on her side, that is until she touches him and knows he has been in contact with God. Now she is onto what they’re doing and Sam, Donatello, and Metatron need to hurry up their Lucifer rescue mission! I was shocked to see Metatron step up and say he wants to handle it as they feel her approach. Maybe he’s trying to atone and make things right after his stint as God? Whatever sigil he drew unfortunately didn’t work and he is quickly turned to nothingness after pleading she spare the universe. Thankfully God was able to help them just before Amara turned them to nothing too. When Chuck-God sees Lucifer, he tells him the “he’s changed”, and Lucifer returns the sentiment. I was glad to see they buried the hatchet and God healed him. However, I don’t understand why they would let the new prophet Donatello go back home? He was just seen by the darkness herself, and I am sure he is now on her hit list. That just doesn’t seem too safe. And with only two episodes left I can’t wait to see how this plays out. I mean, Amara can’t really win and take Dean as part of herself, can she?
