ok i have to ask: how common are alleged miracle healers in the us?

Not much actually. These days even super religious people know miracle healers are full of shit.

Don't worry, I'm Christian (well half) and yes PAY FOR EVERYTHING WE TELL YOU TO BUY IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.

A SMALL TOWN PREACHER MYSTERIOUSLY GAINS THE ABILITY TO PERFORM MIRACLES - While in art class, Zed (Angélica Celaya) has a bizarre vision of snakes that lead her and John (Matt Ryan) to a small town where a preacher has mysteriously gained the ability to heal his congregation.

Not my favourite story, but definitely a great leap forward for the ongoing arc.

 

[ Spoiler : I was happy to have my doubts about Manny's intentions and yet don't mind at all the pay off we got here.

 

Pretty white angel BAD

Black angel in black GOOD-ISH

 

Another redemptive ending for the religious protagonist.

 

My only real dislike was Constantine fighting again.

But we got "You know what that means? You're driving."

and Zed putting up the tent without help.

And the baptismal thievery was nicely done (maybe we could have been misled by having Zed storm off in a grump after John's comments).

And another thing, about Zed. Her genuine excitement at finding an angel only to then think it was John being negative rather than Angels actually are bastards :-)

 

The Resurrection Crusaders teaser was most satisfying.

 

Imogen had some of Gabriel's lines, didn't she? At least from the film ;-)

 

And the dilemma Manny faced was so well poised, nicely resolved and then the discussion afterwards sets up where we are going, so well.

 

 

And do I need to start a new Easter Egg thread?

Or was that one TOO obvious?

That was fun. I liked the way they developed Manny's role in this episode. The dilemma he faced was real, and felt like it mattered. And I liked Imogen - nicely played.

Zed too had some nice moments in this one, and the reveal at the end was cool.
