Can we really trust Michael’s words about God’s drafts on Supernatural?

Michael shared what he’d learned about God since coming into the Winchester’s world on Supernatural. Can we really trust his observations?

Supernatural introduced the Apocalypse World at the end of the 12th season and then brought the hunters and Michael through last season. Now Michael has had a chance to look into God’s decision to abandon him and Lucifer and he’s come to a conclusion. The question is whether we can trust him.

For those who haven’t watched the most recent episode, there are spoilers of a particular conversation between Michael!Dean and Castiel.

Michael mentioned that God is a typical writer. He creates drafts and then discards them when they don’t work. It looks like Chuck/God is the same God for every single world, which is something that many fans have speculated for a while.

And it certainly would make sense. I can’t tell you the amount of rough draft articles I have in my trash bin. Nor can I tell you the amount of rough drafts of fictional stories I have! It’s a curse as a writer to have drafts that never become finished because something about them doesn’t work.

But can we trust Michael? This is an archangel who has routinely proven to not live up to his word. When he made a deal with Lucifer to get through the rift, he didn’t follow through with it. Then when he made a deal with Dean to defeat Lucifer, he didn’t follow through. How can we trust him?

This is one of the issues of villains. They are untrustworthy but there are always times that they tell the truth.

This could certainly be one of those times that Michael was telling the truth. Why would he lie? At the time, he had no reason to lie, except to make Team Free Will 2.0 doubt themselves and their relationships with one another.

After all, we know he lied to Jack. He told Jack that Dean wasn’t upset on the inside, that Castiel and Sam view Jack as a job they didn’t want. That’s certainly not the case and it’s been clear since Season 12 for Castiel and Season 13 for the Winchesters. Jack is family.

So, if he lied about that, could he have lied about the draft worlds to Castiel? Make the angel doubt himself and the world and he could end up weaker in a fight. He could start questioning everything.

Yet, the draft worlds make sense. Hopefully, we’ll get God (or maybe Amara) back to tell us that Michael has lied the whole time.
