While Lucifer meets with Sister Jo, Ketch learns Asmodeus’ secret weapon in Supernatural’s Devil’s Bargain.

If you haven’t watched the episode yet, I fully encourage you to do it before you read this Supernatural recap. Honestly, you do not want the ending to this episode spoiled for you if you can help it!

Those who are reading on I’m assuming you’ve either watched it or you don’t mind reading about the ending. But I’m telling you again, if you haven’t watched it yet, please don’t read on! Don’t do that to yourself! This is the biggest twist since Mary returned from the dead.

More from Supernatural

Right, let’s get on with it then.

Lucifer isn’t dead yet

It all picks up where Supernatural left Castiel and Lucifer off in the last episode. Well, sort of. We see Castiel walking through a forest and then get flashbacks of Lucifer definitely not being killed. Instead, it all got turned around on Cass and he was almost killed. Fortunately, with Lucifer’s grace being so depleted, that didn’t happen and instead he passed out temporarily. A couple of kids poking him with a stick woke him up.

After that, Castiel was able to get to the Winchesters, where he caught them up on everything that had happened. Shocked is the understatement of the millennia when it comes to the Winchesters getting all the information. But together (well likely mostly Smart!Sam, who returned in full force this week) they realize that if the angel tablet as the way to get through dimensions, then the demon tablet will do too. While they may not have the angel tablet, they definitely have the latter. And they have the Teenage Mutant Ninja Prophet to read it.

Yep, Donatello is back and he’s willing; on one condition. He needs chicken wings for brain fuel.

Sister Jo’s secrets revealed

While all that happens, Lucifer learns how to be human. Remember how graceful and kind homeless Castiel was? Well, you get the exact opposite with Lucifer. He’s mean, obnoxious, and whiny…exceptionally whiny. Supernatural has got the personality to a tee right now and Mark Pellegrino’s acting is perfect for the situation.

When nobody gives him any money, the sweet homeless guy next to him offers to help get him some food. It’s not with the money the homeless guy has collected though. Lucifer gets to go dumpster diving. You see, the money is for his “leg fund.” He wants Sister Jo to heal his leg, but she doesn’t come cheap.

At first Lucifer scoffs at the idea of a faith healer. They’re all frauds, aren’t they? The homeless guy doesn’t think so. He’s seen the healing blue glow…you know, the glow from angels? Yes, Lucifer quickly learns that Sister Jo, played by the gorgeous and talented Danneel Ackles, is an angel. There’s no beating around the bush about it. After the fall, she decided to put her healing hands to work to make sure she lived the life of luxury on Earth.

Smart lady. Very smart lady.

At first Sister Jo isn’t scared, until she realizes that Lucifer killed a cupid earlier for his grace. Now Lucifer wants her grace. Fortunately, she’s a business woman, so comes up with a plan to save her life. She’ll help Lucifer and he gets some of her grace, but only enough to help him so she can replenish her depleted amounts.

I’m now confused at why Sister Jo can replenish hers but Lucifer isn’t able to replenish his considering he still had some. Continuity error, Supernatural?

Anyway, Lucifer agrees to the bargain and off they go on their merry way to help Lucifer become the archangel he once was.

Ketch saves the day

Lucifer isn’t the only person who has found out about Sister Jo. The Winchesters and Castiel learn too, only Castiel quickly figures out from video footage that she’s an angel. So, now they need to figure out where she is. That doesn’t take long with Smart!Sam. He sets up alerts so he’s pinged when she uses her credit card.

When they get to Sister Jo, she tells them that she needs help. Acting the damsel in distress, the Winchesters go into the motel room to face off against a “weak” Lucifer. Of course, he’s not that weak at all and the tables are turned against the Winchesters and Castiel. Fortunately, it’s Ketch to the rescue, who is on a mission to kill Lucifer and had originally offered to work with the Winchesters. The Winchesters had knocked him out and put him in their trunk, but since he’s Ketch, he got out easily enough.

Lucifer and Sister Jo get away, leaving the Winchesters, Castiel and Ketch discussing their options. Ketch even admits that he’s working with Asmodeus, but is willing to be a mole. That can’t end well for the Winchesters or Ketch!

Speaking of Asmodeus though, he’s figured out that Donatello likely knows something, so transforms into Casmodeus. Yes, Misha Collins gets to play Evil Colonel Sanders for a bit, getting as much information from Donatello as possible. Then Asmodeus uses his special powers to brainwash the prophet and get a mole on his side. See, something isn’t going to turn out great for someone.

Lucifer gets a seat back

Lucifer and Sister Jo manage to get to the doorway to Heaven to speak to some of the angels. It doesn’t take long for him to convince these angels to work with him. After all, he’s able to make more angels to replenish the army. And he promises one that she can become the Supreme Head. So he gets the seat in Heaven back, with a smug Sister Jo by his side.

Meanwhile, Ketch catches Asmodeus up, leaving out the fact that he is offering to give information to the Winchesters. He does share his doubts about killing Lucifer though. They don’t have the tools to do that.

Well, Asmodeus actually does. He has the Archangel Blade.

But doesn’t that need an archangel to wield it to kill Lucifer? That’s okay! Asmodeus has one of them too.

Did you catch a quick snippet in the Hellatus teaser with a man in a prison cell? Well, that man comes up. It was…

GABRIEL!‼‼! Yes, Gabriel isn’t dead. He’s now shaggy-haired, his mouth has been shown up and he’s a prisoner in Hell, but Gabriel is most definitely alive.

And that was the best way to end an episode going into a mini-Hellatus. Yes, like so many other shows, Supernatural is taking a short break for the Winter Olympics.
