We can always rely on that nice batch of Netflix to deliver the goods when it comes to binging TV series, and they’ve done it again with their latest comedy outing: God’s favorite idiot.
The series stars the incredible Melissa McCarthy as the eccentric office worker Amily, along with her real-life husband (!!) Ben Falcone who plays Amily’s seemingly monotonous colleague, Clark. However, everything changes once Clark discovers that he has unexpectedly been chosen as God’s new messenger, and the couple embark on a mission to spread God’s word in a battle against evil.
Obviously, the comedy show is all very extravagant and there is a lot to see in the season finale. So if you need a summary, here’s the end of God’s favorite languagetexplained.
God’s favorite idiotic ending, he explained
Starting from the beginning, God’s favorite idiot ends with various cliffhangers that, while frustrating, bode well for a second season. According to reports from Variety, the series was initially supposed to be 16 episodes long, before production was stopped and the series was reduced to eight. A second batch of the eight originally planned extra episodes should be shot at a later date, so let’s hope there are more to come!
As for this season’s finale, we see Clark and Amily eventually flee the city. Their attempt to spread God’s message was met with much hatred, and God then tells the couple to leave to be safe. However, this does not mean that Clark’s mission is over; God gives Clark his next destination (though we can’t find out which one it is), and episode eight ends with Clark and Amily leaving together. The moment is also a happy ending for the couple on a personal level, with Amily admitting to Clark that she loves him too. In the end!
OK, but there are bigger problems at hand. The war with Lucifer is still ongoing and towards the end of the series it appears that Lucifer may indeed win, putting humanity’s future at risk. However, in episode eight Lucifer’s rule appears to be weakening, with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse potentially swinging in their allegiance. Additionally, Satan appears to pose a threat to Lucifer’s power, as she likely wants the throne for herself while Tom the Baptist is still recruiting other disciples, so the battle is far from over.
Mohsin, Wendy and Gene are also spared by Satan, after Wendy convinces Satan that he is too powerful to spend the final battle killing humans on Earth. So, hey, at least that’s a plus.
There are still many open questions for a potential second season: Will Clark and Amily return to town to rejoin the rest of the characters? Or will we follow them to their new destination and leave their friends and colleagues behind? And most importantly, who will finally win the battle between good and evil?
We are ready for more.
