Because I will never not enjoy speculating…
It would strike me
as strange if the series ends without seeing Michael again.
explanation of “he’s singing show tunes and touching himself”
and God saying he wasn’t in any shape to fight – it kinda makes
me think that they’re holding Michael in their back pocket for the
end of the show or something. It also seems odd to leave him in the
corner while Lucifer is back on the board.
Lucifer and Michael
were the original mirrors for Sam and Dean. The big, big difference
between them is that when Sam was “cast out” by their father,
Dean went after him.
already shown us how easy it was for Lucifer to hop from vessel to
vessel, so even if they can’t get Adam Milligan or young John back,
there’s not really an excuse. We could easily say, “well, that
story has already been told” or “let’s stop recycling old plots,” but… there’s definitely more that
could be said. Chuck and Amara got closure. Lucifer and Michael got
tossed into jail.
What I’m really,
really torn on is whether or not I wanna see Michael!Dean.
On one hand, seeing
Jensen actually play another character (which pretty much everyone
else has had a chance to do) would be fucking wonderful. Especially
if Lucifer wasn’t exaggerating and we do get to see
On the other hand,
between Sam, Dean, and Cas, Dean is the only one who has never said
“yes” to an archangel, which kinda paints him as the poster child
for free will.
And on the other other hand, Dean is supposed to be the “firewall between light and darkness,” and a nice dose of angel grace would balance out the whole turning into a demon thing.
But… yeah. I’d like a satisfying end to Lucifer and Michael’s story, not a throwaway line that Michael is in the cage
masturbating until the end of time.
