A Little Goes a Long Way, by Elle2
Always leave them wanting more.
What you donâ€™t see is twice as scary as what you do.
I remember comments throughout Season 5 about how we didnâ€™t see Lucifer enough. Well, with an actor as well-cast as Mark Pellegrino in the role I can understand the frustration; however, true to Supernaturalâ€™s history, the seasonâ€™s big bad is usually seen very few times. Itâ€™s the slow-build of the evil behind the scenes that adds to the atmosphere.
We saw Meg only four times in Season 1 and she was the Winchesterâ€™s overt enemy with Azazel completely in the shadows until Devilâ€™s Trap when Jeffrey Dean Morgan first portrayed the character.
In Season 2 Azazel, as played by Fred Lane, only appears three times, In My Time of Dying and All Hell Breaks Loose I & II; Azazel only bookends the season.
Season 3 brings us a new big bad but it isnâ€™t until Malleus Maleficarum that we even hear about her and then itâ€™s a he; Lilith clearly wasnâ€™t fully fleshed out at this point. She makes her appearance in Jus In Bello in the closing minutes and then not again until No Rest For the Wicked but through Bela in Time is on My Side and Ruby in Jus In Bello we know quite a bit about her and we know sheâ€™s not good news.
