The Supernatural Season 14 finale brought back a fan-favorite character. Whether you guessed who it was or not, there’s one thing many people agree. This person seemed so out of character. Why was that?

Caution: Spoilers from the Supernatural Season 14 finale.

Supernatural Season 14, Episode 20 brought back a fan-favorite character as we were promised. However, that fan-favorite may not be a favorite for long. In the Season 14 finale, this character seemed extremely out of character from the previous times they’ve been on screen. Why is that?

Yes, that fan-favorite character was Chuck — or God, depending on the mood you’re in. He showed up pretty early on with a request: for someone to kill Jack.

With a big story as to why he couldn’t do it himself and how he only shows up for the apocalypses, it didn’t take long to feel like something was off. Chuck wasn’t the Chuck we’d come to know.

While it was never fully explained why he was different, it’s easy to guess why. This is a character we’ve never really got to know. When we met him in Season 5, he was apparently a prophet of the Lord. Then we met him as God and he was a bumbling, weak “man” happy for the world to end.

This isn’t a guy that we’ve really had the chance to see for who he is. He’s never shown us his real face. Now we’re getting that real face — the mean and angry God that you can find in the Old Testament.

Apocalypse Michael had built us up to this, warned us of this. He’d pointed out that God is a writer and creates drafts. When he’s unhappy with a draft, he abandons it. And so, there are multiple universes out there. Did you really expect Chuck to be this nice guy?

It looks like God is going to be the big bad of the final season. It’s fitting, in a way. All of this has been about Heaven vs. Hell, Lucifer vs. Michael, for so long. Now it’s time to see the creator of it all become the final big bad. He is the most powerful being after all.

While it feels odd at first, looking at all the moments we’ve had with Chuck over the years actually makes sense to see this version of Chuck. God doesn’t let us know who he really is. But at the end of the day, he’s a writer. And when characters anger a writer, there’s very little hope.

Or, you know, God just wasn’t God. There are theories that he was possessed by Lucifer or this is The Empty’s plan, but I just think we have never seen the real God. This time we did. Considering his abandonment of Heaven and the other worlds, this God doesn’t surprise me all that much.
