This hurts my feelings. Think of Sam earlier this season, so earnest, on his knees by his bed, praying for guidance. And he got nothing (he got Lucifer, reminding him that he was the only one in Sam’s head). And now he meets God and he’s falling over himself to provide excuses. Sam. (11x21)

I really liked this scene. There was so much tension in that moment. So many unspoken words, so many barely contained emotions involved. How long must it have been since these two saw one another? Millenia. And just as many years of bad water under the bridge…. And I love their expressions here. Both Rob and Misha nailed it imo. You can see how much changes in their whole posture and facial expression once God has healed Lucifer. Whereas before their interaction had something very vulnerable, something like “I’m sorry”, especially with the way Lucifer almost hides from God’s gaze behind that wall and Chuck’s expressions seem soft. Once Lucifer is put back together none of that is still there, but something more challenging and sinister. Not going to lie, I can’t wait to see more of this.
