There was an exceptionally large amount of drama on what was supposed to be the happiest episode of God Friended Me to date.
Arthur and Trish tied the knot (at last!), but they were blissfully unaware of the problems their children were facing in their personal lives.
Trish was looped in midway through God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 12 that her daughter, Julie, whom we just found out about, was not only pregnant but also getting divorced.
That’s a handful to find out any day let alone on your wedding day.
But let me back it up just a little bit – Trish has a daughter?!
Miles echoed those sentiments when he questioned why they’ve never met her before, but more importantly, why wasn’t she ever mentioned? Or maybe she was and I simply don’t recall this brief moment. Let me know if that’s the case!
Julie came into town and her problems immediately took over the episode as she became Miles’ next friend suggestion from The God Account, whom Miles assumed was Alphonse, the owner of New York and Son’s and also, his dad’s friend coming to the wedding.
In addition to wanting to confront Alphonse about his God Account assumptions and helping Julie with her pregnancy/divorce, Miles was also dealing with Ali’s cancer diagnosis.
Oh, and he was Arthur’s best man. Yeah, Miles’ plate was full.
It was almost too full. At times, it felt like the series was trying too hard to hone in on a point, any point, that would make the audience feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
The show excels when heartwarming moments happen naturally like on God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 11 after Abe was reunited with his sister thanks to Miles and Joy.
Abe’s desire to find his sister remained the focal point of the story and had an ending that proved exactly why Miles needs to continue his role within the God Account. It was a winning formula for the series.
During that episode, there were other minor storylines floating around but they weren’t fighting over our attention as was the case with the wedding.
We weren’t able to enjoy Trish and Arthur’s big moment because it was constantly being overshadowed by storylines that could’ve waited until a later time.
God Friended Me Midseason Premiere Review – Joy Returns to Help Miles (2×11)
If we have a little faith, things will work out in the end.
That seems like a good motto for this series in general but especially because it rings true by the end of God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 11.
Most of God Friended Me Season 1 focused on Miles’ desire to find out who was behind the God Account.
For much of God Friended Me Season 2, the ‘who’ didn’t matter as much anymore because Miles was simply enjoying the journey that found him helping people who needed him.
But now that his relationship with Cara is being threatened, Miles is once again motivated to figure out who is running the account. And most importantly, he’s ready to hand over the reins and give it all up for love.
That is if the “God Account” lets him. Miles cannot seriously believe that it would be as easy as “we find them, I get my answers, we walk away.”
With Joy’s return and her lead on the God Account’s identity, Miles seems to be one-step closer to achieving his goal, but this episode proved that even though he wants so badly to make it work with Cara, it’s not going to be that easy.
Miles’ work within the God Account is too important to walk away from.
People need him; he’s good at what he does.
However, Joy’s return may have also proven that the prophecy requiring Miles to do this all alone might not be completely true.
Since getting tasked with the God Account’s missions, Miles has never done it alone. He always needs a partner to help a friend suggestion.
Watch God Friended Me now.
It’s always either Cara or Rakesh, and at times, he’s gotten a helping hand from Arthur, Ali, and of course, Joy.
Without them, he wouldn’t have gotten very far.
And we see that on full display when it comes to Abe. Miles needed Joy’s expertise as a public defender to get Abe legal help with securing the chain of command to reunite him with the owner of the pocket watch.
Without Joy’s help, Miles likely wouldn’t have had the skills and tools necessary to give Abe a second chance at meeting his family.
Helping people isn’t a solo gig, which is why it doesn’t seem like the God Account would ever want Miles to choose between him/it and Cara.
While I know the purpose of the series is not to find out who is behind the God Account, the fact that there might be someone involved that does have a connection to Miles and the Finer family intrigues me.
God Friended Me Review (2×09): Did the God Account Come Between Miles and Cara?
There’s trouble in paradise for Cara and Miles on God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 9.
But who is to blame for the rift between them? Is it the God Account? Is it Miles? I’m slightly torn here.
Whenever there is a personal friend suggestion things tend to get messy.
It’s tough navigating a situation that includes someone close to you and when the outcome personally affects your life.
When Paul, Cara’s step-father, became Miles’ friend suggestion, it was evident that this was going to test their relationship.
Paul’s financial situation was direr than he previously led on. He wasn’t just making bad deals at work and his business wasn’t suffering because of a crisis, he was meddling in insider trading.
Everyone knows that’s a huge no-no.
It’s hard to see clearly when it comes to family, and Cara wanted to believe the best in her step-dad, and her ill-advised actions reflected that.
She misplaced her trust. Instead of trusting the God Account, which has never let her or anyone else down, she turned her back on it.
And she got upset when Miles followed his gut and did what he thought was right.

God Friended Me Review – Instant Karma (2×07)
God Friended Me is gearing up for a big, life-changing moment for Miles.
And no, I’m not talking about Cara finally saying the ‘L’ word to Miles, which happened on God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 7 and was downright adorable. More on that later.
I’m talking about Audrey Grenelle’s painting ‘The Path’ that had a hidden message coded inside by the God Account.
Grenelle admitted her Paris project was her attempt at pushing the boundaries of the art world and thus, every piece was created by an AI program.
Every piece but one.
The Path was the product of a hack on Grenelle’s program, and we all know who’s responsible for said hack.
Miles, Cara, and Rakesh spent much of the episode attempting to crack the 11-digit password protection.
I was sure the winning lottery ticket numbers would be the correct password, but when they were denied, I was thrown for a loop.
The God Account and God Friended Me always keeps us guessing.
Finally, Miles, Rakesh, and Cara hit the jackpot when they realized that Judy’s hospital bracelet numbers were the key all along.
And look, if that’s the case, either the God Account changed the numbers after Judy’s incident OR it predicted that Judy would have a brain aneurysm.
If the latter is true and the God Account can predict health emergency’s, it should probably try to prevent them.
Judy would have been a great friend suggestion!
Anywho, once the painting was decoded, the message reflected a picture of a house.
But since we know the God Account doesn’t do anything without a reason, it wasn’t just any house.
Fans of the series will recognize it as the house that Miles and Cara visited back on God Friended Me Season 1 during one of their first quests to find the God Account.
What could this mean? Does the God Account want Miles to resume his search for the God Account’s identity?
Are the answers to all of life’s burning questions inside that house?
“The Path” was supposed to illuminate Miles’ new purpose in life, but what purpose could be hidden inside a run-down house?
Does someone live there now that could help Miles/ could benefit from his help?
Is Miles supposed to buy the house?
The answers aren’t that obvious on this one, but that’s why it’s going to be such an incredible mission.
We’ve come to know what to expect from each episode: Miles gets a friend request, everyone pitches in to help, they find a solution, the end.
But this new path will shake things up a bit. It’s always a good thing to keep the characters and the audience on their toes.
And whatever the God Account wants Miles to find, well, they went through a lot of trouble to send him those encrypted messages.
Admittedly, tracking Audrey Grenelle down for answers was kind of a waste of time.
She didn’t know much about who hacked the painting or what their purpose was, and she didn’t even have the passcode that they needed.
She was useless in the end, but it seems like she’ll be sticking around to see this mystery through.
Miles may still be searching for his purpose but Ali seems to have found hers.
Thank god. Literally.
Ali’s been severely underused throughout the run of the series so it’s about time she got her own storyline.
