“We’re not asking you to believe that this is true, just act like you do. People do it all the time.”
—Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) to Donatello Redfield (Keith Szarabajka)

That quote pretty much sums up this week’s episode of Supernatural, as the show’s fans have been separated into two distinct groups since last week’s possibly series-changing reveal that Chuck (Rob Benedict) is God. Some fans loved the twist, believing that casting the most supreme being in the universe as a relatable human dork is clever and in keeping with Supernatural‘s overall aesthetic. Others think that God should be more God-like, played by someone with a more serious, commanding presence.

In Supernatural fandom, there are several widely-held theories that fans believe and discuss, and either love or hate. Does the series have to end with Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) deaths? Is Ben (Nicholas Elia) Dean’s son? Is “Destial” actually a thing? Is Chuck (Rob Benedict) God?

Well, one of those questions was answered in this week’s episode, as Chuck Shurley, formerly known as a “hack writer”/unknowing prophet, revealed Himself to Metatron (Curtis Anderson), one of the series’ most unlikable angels.

At the conclusion of the last episode of Supernatural, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester unsuccessfully attempted to both exorcise Lucifer out of Castiel (Misha Collins) and kill Amara (Emily Swallow), only to see her abduct Castiel/Lucifer, whom she referred to as “God’s favorite son”.

The past three episodes of Supernatural have had little to do with season 11’s major strategy, but the latest episode’s definitely arc-centric. There were a few surprises (guess who’s back?), appearances from most of this season’s main characters, and even a rare exorcism duet from Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) Winchester, but the show still feels like it’s spinning its wheels.

Spoiler alert! The average Supernatural fan (or anyone who looks up their local TV listings) knew that this week’s episode dealt with a hard-to-believe premise: the death of Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki). Despite the fact that technically, he’s died at least three times on the show—stabbed by a demon-blooded “special child” at the end of season two, thrown into a pit of Hell at the end of season five, and falling into a non-reversible coma after being weakened by the “trials” of season eight)—it was still surprising to see him fall to his supposed final death by just a simple bullet shot by a werewolf.
