Sometimes, a season finale is so well done, it could hand itself to a series finale.

If I didn’t know the series was renewed for a second season, I would have thought God Friended Me Season 1 Episode 20 was closing the book for us.

Or at least, closing the chapter of the God Account.

Face to Face - God Friended Me

Though Miles, Cara and Rakesh always run into some troubles, everything always has a way of working itself out.

By the end of the hour, it truly felt like Miles’ work with the God Account was done and Cara and Rakesh were starting their own journey independent of Miles.

But then… the God Account flipped the script by bringing in another character into the fold, a woman named Joy, who was friended by the God Account and sent Miles as a Friend Suggestion.

I spoke with show creators Bryan Wynbrandt and Steven Lilien below who said that God Friended Me Season 2 will explore why Miles became a friend suggestion — is it because he knows how the account operates or is it because he needs help this time around?

The finale also revealed that Henry Chase is not behind the God Account as previously believed.

After searching for Chase throughout most of the season, Miles, Cara and Rakesh were finally able to track him down thanks to Graham Hastings, a previous friend suggestion who played chess with Falken aka Henry.

Tracking Henry down was nearly impossible for much of the season, so why was it so easy in the end? Why didn’t they think of this sooner?!

While we initially believed Henry was the creator of the God Account, upon meeting him, we realized he needed Miles’ help just as much as the previous Friend Suggestions.

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 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?

God Friended Me – All Those Yesterdays (2×04)

God Friended Me All Those Yesterday's Review

The gang is back together on God Friended Me Season 2 Episode 4.

It’s good timing as Joy receives her most intense friend suggestion yet: her daughter.

It’s never easy to confront your past, but it’s necessary to move forward. Navigating something so personal and close to home was difficult for Joy.

She shied away from getting any help from Miles, Cara, and Rakesh, but it was the kind of situation that called for their expertise.

Miles had to face his past during God Friended Me Season 1, so he, of all people, understands the delicacy of the situation.

Joy’s impulsivity proved to be the most significant uphill battle, especially once Rakesh figured out that Lauren, Joy’s daughter, was looking for answers about her identity.

Immediately, Joy wanted to tell her daughter that she was her mother, which wasn’t the best idea.

There’s a big difference between helping someone and destroying someone’s family.

The God Account sent Joy the suggestion because she’s the only one who could offer Lauren any peace or answers, but that didn’t necessarily mean that she needed to out herself.

That’s why it was good that Miles was in her corner seeing things more clearly without the personal connection.

Miles knew they couldn’t say anything to Lauren without talking with her parents first, and once he saw that they weren’t on the same page, he knew for certain that it wasn’t the right move.

Joy hasn’t been a fan-favorite, and storming out of the store and telling Miles and Cara to mind their own business didn’t do her any favors.

She came off more than just impulsive — she came off selfish and rude.

While the situation was extremely difficult — I cannot imagine what it feels like to see your daughter and realize she’s been craving to know you — it wasn’t Joy’s call to make, and it wasn’t necessary to throw caution to the wind.

We did learn a little bit about Lauren. She had Joy’s gluten allergy and her impulsivity, which was made evident by her decision to use her father’s credit card to purchase a bus ticket to Chicago in search of a third cousin.

Like mother, like daughter.

Joy proved that she had a maternal instinct, and when it mattered, put her daughter’s needs above her own. Again.

Whenever Joy tells Miles to trust her, I get worried, but this time, she knew exactly how to convince Lauren that going to Chicago was a bad idea.

The heart-to-heart delivered all the feels, and the waterworks were flowing!

Joy connecting with her daughter in such a selfless way was beautiful.

She gave her insight about her great grandfather, Kai, without overstepping.

And that little tidbit of information meant the world to Lauren.

She was satisfied simply knowing where she came from, which also means she wasn’t entirely ready to meet her birth mother yet.

God Friended Me handled matters of adoption in a caring manner; they showed the reality not only for the people giving up a child but also for the adopted children and their parents.

While Lauren didn’t figure out that her mother was “lawyer Joy,” Lauren’s adoptive mother pieced it together.

Joy’s storyline may have come to a close as she decided to head back to Chicago for her hearing, but it’s unlikely that this is the last we’ll see of her.

Something tells me she’ll be back in some capacity to either help out with a friend suggestion or to tell Lauren the truth when she’s ready to hear it. Are you sad she’s leaving?

As we close the book on Joy, Miles returns to being the God Account’s favorite.

I can’t say I’m too disappointed. Joy took the storyline in a new direction, but she was difficult at times.

It’s nice to see Miles back in action. However, if Miles is going back to being the God Account’s right-hand man, doesn’t that negate looking for a purpose in his future?

What was the point of going to Paris, finding “The Path” artwork, and attempting to find Audrey Grenelle?

It all seems pretty useless for now, but, as we know, the God Account doesn’t do anything without a good reason.

Audrey will likely come into play somewhere down the line. Unless we’ve already met her.
