The Plains Motel featured in this episode, is the same location used in 2006 for the scene in the trailer park from Season 1 episode 17 titled "Hell House." See more »


In an obvious attempt to make a "witty" political jab having the President of the United States possessed by the Devil, the writers made an error as the current President at the time of this episode is a black man, not a white man. However, every TV show has its own universe with its own Presidents and governments. See more »

low on character - fun on action drama
23 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are some very interesting characters and a few good themes so far this season. Unfortunately all of the most interesting of them have been of new and not so established characters. The rock star which Lucifer possessed was a more interesting character than Lucifer. Dean's mother is more interesting than Dean. The psychic girl from episode 4 ' American Nightmare' this season is more interesting than Sam. etc. etc. Let's look at the main villain so far this season, Lucifer


It's no surprise that this season Sam and Dean would have to deal with Lucifer and would be in conflict. Even though Lucifer is very dangerous, he feels unlike he has in past seasons. In the past Lucifer was like a force of nature, an archetype similar to the darkness, who had a plan and philosophy which differed from God's. Yes, he had a gripe too. No doubt Lucifer is still a powerful character but he's been given a downgrade. Lucifer has been turned into a dark knight's joker like character who can be defeated with Men of Letter's magical technology. While I think it perhaps natural to level the playing field a little bit this way to make Lucifer not stand as huge a threat for all future seasons, I am disappointed in the character change.I was glad to see Lucifer last season. It looks like they are finding a new role for Lucifer to fill. But to me this new Lucifer no longer presents an ideology and is no longer a force for it in his own right even if it's a twisted ideology. One can say he always was but he wasn't always ONLY throwing a tantrum. Now Lucifer's destruction is getting old.

Other than the only thing interesting going on character-wise being with new characters it was an otherwise engaging episode with an interesting man of letter's. His introduction in this episode was pretty awesome. I did quite enjoy the conflict that Lucifer having the presidency introduced and I am looking forward to the struggle presented in this "spawn of Lucifer" story. Again, while main characters like Lucifer are the focal point of the action and conflict, the most interesting inner struggles and character arcs are all coming from those introduced who are new. The show seriously has to find something more creative and fitting to do with established characters.
