The most uplifting show of Sunday night is back and ready to dish out more miracles and feel-good moments via the God Account.

At first, it seemed like everything was going well for all of our favorites on God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 1.

We had a good break; they had a good break.

Miles guest-starred on a podcast to promote his podcast, the Millennial Prophet, and was gushing how great life was going for him, Rakesh, Cara, and even Joy.

But, in reality, everything was a complete disaster.

Miles hadn’t seen Joy since their first encounter when Miles became her first friend suggestion from the God Account.

And without Joy or any other friend suggestions, he had no material for his podcast’s second season, a podcast he gave up his job to pursue.

But alas, Miles and Joy were reunited mere minutes into the episode.

The way Miles found Joy mimicked God Friended Me Season 1.

It was the scene where Miles saved John from committing suicide — before John even became his friend suggestion.

This time around, Miles missed his train because he was giving a soldier direction.

That soldier ended up being Joy’s second friend suggestion, a man named Lt. James Fremont.

God Friended Me Review (2×09): Did the God Account Come Between Miles and Cara?



God Friended Me Prophet and Loss Review

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 Instant Karma Review

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.

God Friended Me – The Fighter (2×06)



God Friended Me The Fighter Review

What a powerful episode.

Everyone worked together on God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 6 to help Miles’ next friend suggestion Elena.

It’s awesome to see other friend suggestions hop in and offer assistance in an authentic way.

On God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 5, I mentioned that help from a previous friend suggestion did nothing to move the story along, but on this episode, Ray played a significant role.

Maybe it’s because there’s always use for someone with P.I skills.

Miles, Cara, and Rakesh have honed their detective skills since their first friend suggestion but they’re still limited in certain areas.

Ray was able to get them some (illegal) information so they could figure out how to help Elena.

I may be a little biased when it comes to accessing Ray’s helpfulness because he was one of my favorite friend suggestions from God Friended Season 1.

But there’s no denying that he helped move the case along.

The involvement of past friend suggestions allowed Cara and Miles to give us an update on how they’re doing.

Ray and Isaac were doing great, though, it was a bummer that we didn’t get to see Isaac in person.

And Ray wasn’t the only one to offer assistance with this case.

As Miles gets more and more friend suggestions he’s going to need people with resources to help him.

It’s a good thing his circle continues to expand.

Previous friend suggestions are grateful for how much he’s helped them, so they’re always eager to lend a helping hand.

Jaya helped off-screen by explaining Elena’s eye injury while Ali was finally put to good as she offered up a solution to help Elena deal with her trauma.

With so much emphasis placed on restorative justice, it was weird that we never got to see a confrontation between Elena and Leo James.

It would have been interesting to see his reason for the attack since they even mentioned it was his first offense.

Plus, it would help Elena heal and move on. That girl was blind with rage. Too soon?
