Joan was suspicious of Ryan from the moment he walked out of the woods with Adam and now he confirms that he has also had contact with God. However, Rayn chooses to use his free will to defy God. Joan is told by God to prepare for her biggest test ever. She becomes convinced that Ryan is responsible for burning down the church and synagogue. As he works into the good graces of Will, Adam, and Helen, Joan fears she won't be able to stand against him. Helen believes her dreams are visions when they seem to predict the church and synagogue fires, but Lilly is skeptical. Kevin's relationship with Lilly is threatened when she reveals that she is thinking about returning to her former profession. Written by Horomnizon

On this day, this series jumped the shark
23 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, this series jumped the shark, by having the devil appear, complete with the appropriate Rolling Stones song to play out the end of the episode, and the last show of the series. A disappointing ending to a great television show. I guess we have to realize that the show was written be people, not by God, and sometimes people just run out of ideas.

When the devil appears to fight a potentially apocalyptic battle with a 16 year old girl, and no one realizes its the devil, including characters who had previously displayed a good deal of perception and complexity, other than the fact that they don't realize that the 16 year old girl in their midst speaks directly with God-well, it just strains the suspension of disbelief.

That being said, I still miss this show. It was so good, it left me wanting more.
