The Archangel Michael’s conversation with Jack in Supernatural’s 14.9 “The Spear” was, on the surface, the big revelation of Michael’s grand plan for his global domination.

Prologue: I wrote this story on May 27, 2016, 2 days after the air date of the SPN Season 11 finale, “Alpha and Omega”. I felt very strongly (and I still do!) that a conversation like this should have taken place between Chuck and Castiel. After all those years of desperately searching for God, struggling with his faith and the purpose of his mission, to be given the chance to talk to his Father? Actually converse with Him, face to face? Cas deserved the opportunity, and I wanted to give it to him.
January 8th is the birthday of the actress of one of my favorite supporting characters on Supernatural – Ruby Two.

Genevieve Nicole Cortese Padalecki – this one’s for you.
