Speaking of our Ginormotron, he's sleeping, with shirt on this time (rats!) and he hears Jessica's voice. He wakes up, rolls over and give her a soft kiss on the neck. Ah, he never gets a chance to be that tender, does he? "So, this is your life now?" She asks. "Meaning you just live forever with your head buried in the sand?" Of course she strokes him while saying this, and he enjoys it, even though he has the sad puppy dog eyes of regret. "I love you Jess. God knows how much I miss you too, but you're wrong. People can change. There is reason for hope." Well, at least you've learned something in this little escapade of yours Sam. Jess strokes his ear and says "No Sam, there isn't." Huh? Whoa, she morphs into Lucifer in a Nick suit!
Sam's back is turned and he asks how she can be so sure. He doesn't notice that a man's hand is now on his shoulder until a male voice now tells him "Because you freed me." Yeah, that would make me jump up with wide eyes, backpedaling in fear too. "You know who I am." Sam correctly guesses Lucifer. The demon of darkness tells Sam he's a hard one to find, harder than most humans. Yeah, name all the humans with sigils carved all over their ribs. Lucifer guesses correctly that Sam won't tell him where he is. Sam, who is convincingly unnerved, asks Lucifer what he wants. "Thanks to you, I walk the earth. I want to give you a gift. I want to give you everything." Sam doesn't want anything from him. Give him a break Sam, he's trying to show you some gratitude. I know he's the devil and all, but he's being nice.
Lucifer doesn't waste time getting to the point. He apologizes. Nick is an improvisation. Plan B. "He can barely contain me without spontaneously combusting." Sam doesn't get where he's going. "Why do you think you were in that chapel? You're the one Sam. You're my vessel, my true vessel." Yes, I saw it too. Sam's entire world ripped out from under him in a millisecond. He's devastated. Heck, this might be worse than when he lost Dean. "No," he whispers, but Lucifer says yes . Sam says that'll never happen and I saw that tear falling from his right eye.
"I'm sorry, but it will. I will find you and when I do, you will let me in. I'm sure of it." Sam figures out that Lucifer needs his permission. Yep, he's an angel after all. Sam will never do it. He'll kill himself before that happens. Lucifer declares he'll bring him back. Oh wow, so Sam can't be killed? This is poor Chuck's predicament all over again. All these angels are evil! Needless to say, we see Sam's defiance deflate significantly when Lucifer tells him that. Then Lucifer pulls the sympathy card. "Sam, my heart breaks for you. The weight on your shoulders. What you've done, what still have to do. It is more than anyone can bear. If there was some other way, but there isn't." We know there must be another way , but this way is more dramatic.
Lucifer promises he will never lie to Sam or trick him, but this isn't comforting poor Sammy at all. "But you will say yes to me." Sam tells him he's wrong, and Lucifer says he isn't. "I think I know you better than you know yourself." Heck, I know Sam better than he knows himself . Not much of a stretch there. "Why me?" Sam asks on the verge of tears. "Because it had to be you Sam. It always had to be you." That's not an answer!!! That's messing with the fans again!! Arghh!!! Lucifer leaves and poor Sam is left alone with tears pooling, shaken to the core. He has had one freaking bad day. That's how all us viewers are left too. Damn you Jeremy Carver!
(Wipes tears from eyes). Come on, just how much worse can it get for Sam? He can't even die peacefully now. Next week, it's Dean's worst nightmare. Bring kleenexes.
