I liked the Nick storyline. I liked that they gave the reason behind why someone would agree to be Lucifer’s vessel and dammit I admit that I completely understood why Nick did it. Do I still believe Lucifer a supreme manipulator? Of course. Do I also believe that Kripke’s version won’t tell a lie? Kinda.
In most books on faery and the fay you’re usually told that a fay can not tell a lie. They will cut and dice the truth until it’s thin as sunlight and nearly as transparent, but it’s still the truth as they see it. I’m thinking that’s Kripke’s version of Lucifer. Now I was a smidgen confused on if Lucifer was causing the destruction around the world on purpose or if it was just a side effect of his rising. I’m leaning toward side effect, but my real question is why is Lucifer so much more powerful then say Zachariah?
Lucifer wasn’t an archangel. Michael was and that’s why, I’m assuming, he was able to banish Lucifer to hell and in Kripke’s verse Lucifer has been locked down tight in hell. If he’s been in cold storage for so long where’s he getting his mojo from? The faith his followers have in him?
Is it that all the demons in hell and on earth are backing Lucifer so that gives him that scary edge? I can buy that. I can see the power in prayer and I do believe that faith, in anything, does help, but it’s a little scary that Lucifer is suddenly such a badass. If he was this awesome when he first started the uprising would he have still lost? Was it that there were less then thirty angels backing him then? And where are the angels that backed him?
They committed the unforgivable sin. Where they locked away in hell also? Will we get to see them? I’ve always wondered if Azazel was supposed to be one of those fallen. He did call Lucifer father, but that’s for another post and another time.
I think I’m going to end this ramble with the thought that I think we’ll be seeing Kripke’s version of God at some point this season and I admit to being conflicted on that concept. Though I do realize that means I need to get off my lazy ass and write the ficlet where Dean talks to God and no, it’s not a crossover with Bruce Almighty… though that has potential too.
