So after all that, I guess that's a yes, I'm still watching :-D
I can't express enough how much it shit me off seeing Sam throw Lucifer back down, It's just not Sam.
Mr Siren humping, werewolf trusting, Lucifer hosting, ol' Sam? The 'I Give everyone a 2nd chance' guy? I was literally disgusted at that writing.
Not to mention, as you did, the obvious no archangels left problem.
Well, besides the obvious (Jack).
AND the subtle plot point thrown in of "I hear your unbinding didn't hold" when Lucifer was taunting Rowena.
Nice lantern you hung there, I mean, she was a beast unbound, but in the mortal world, no more than she was before, really.
Look at someone, say a word, dead. You don't get more powerful than that on the mortal coil. You didn't need to subtly re-bind her with a plot point.
- Sam betrays Lucifer, CLEARLY making room for Jack to find out and go off the rails (new enemy to work out, ooooOOOOO, subtle.)
- Gabe dies, can Jack wake him up in the 'Nothing' again, like he did with Cas? I doubt it, but fuck, way to dangle the cookie only to rip it away again. It wasn't even much of a deus ex, because Cas had said again and again "Who knows how long he'll take to recharge", he was drained for years, they coulda kept him around at 'normal angel level' for a LONG time before he became the scape goat.
- Heaven is now basically 'empty', I'm expecting there to be a 'mass ghosts on earth' subplot at some point. Or perhaps just a "re released 5 million souls, it was too heavy for 5 angels to hold".
- OBVIOUSLY with archangels dead, Jack will be the one to sit the throne and stabilise heaven.
I mean, A+ for the 'Gabe drinks Grace, and burns the Demon' scene with Asmodeus being destroyed.
What happened to that, writers? Huh?
A near impossible scene, with a nice dose of "this Lore still works, Angel, smash the demon please".
It was still an Edge of the Seat moment, with Gabe weak, and still scared.
Eugh.... Maybe they'll save it, but right now, I can just see it all.
Lucifer and Michael get back to earth.
Jack find out Sam betrayed Lucifer.
Jack goes AWOL.
Lucifer tries to 'corrupt him'.
Jack is too sensitive for that. Freaks out, hurts people, hates himself.
Cas, or more likely Naomi, explains heaven needs a ruler, and he can't hurt people there.
Jack is removed from story line.
God I hope I'm wrong, but these writers are killing me....
