Of the 66 seals required to free Lucifer, only 2 of them are required in a specific order. The first seal is quoted by Alastair as, "And it is written, that the first seal shall be broken when a righteous man sheds blood in Hell. As he breaks, so shall it break. Lucifer became associated with, and was often referred to by, the name "Satan.
Despite being sealed away, he was still considered the ruler of Hell and the lord of all demons. During his long imprisonment within the confines of his cage in Hell, Lucifer was served by his many demons, one of the most prominent being his confidant, the Yellow-Eyed Demon known as Azazel. None of them, save for Lilith, Cain, the Knights of Hell, and the Princes of Hell, had truly seen Lucifer, as he was locked away in a special part of Hell that was its own metaphysical prison, unreachable to almost all beings, locked by the seals, with only 66 required to remain intact to keep Lucifer sealed within; this left the vast majority of demons without hope that they would ever find Lucifer and return him to power, save for the Prince of Hell Azazel, hells ruler at the time, who eventually escaped to Earth in search of a way to free Lucifer from Hell.
In , years after years of searching, Azazel discovered the location of Lucifer's prison in one of the most ironic of places: He possessed the body of the chief priest of the church, St. Mary's Convent, in Ilchester, Maryland, and pretended to carry out the priest's current mass, with an audience of eight nuns in attendance. Eventually, the priest's words began to speak of a different father, Lucifer, and the priest was then revealed to be Azazel, who then proceeded to slaughter the nuns and positioned one atop the altar in a ritual sacrifice designed to allow for a brief conversation with Lucifer.
After the church was left a bloody mess, Azazel, still possessing the priest's body, spoke directly to Lucifer himself, who in turn spoke through the body of the nun. Azazel stated his great relief to hear Lucifer's voice once again after so many ages. Lucifer commended Azazel's unshakable faith in him and stated that he had done well to find him. Azazel then requested knowledge of what was binding Lucifer in Hell and how he could help Lucifer break free and rise once more. Lucifer then told Azazel that Lilith was the only one who could break the seals which bound him to Hell.
Revealing that Lilith would have to be freed from Hell and then sacrificed by a special child with psychic powers strong enough to perform the deed, Lucifer entreated Azazel to devise a way to break this seal and set him free. It is here that Azazel is revealed to be ultimately loyal to Lucifer and that his endgame throughout the series had been the release of Lucifer from Hell.
With Lucifer's location now confirmed and knowing what he had to do in order to release him, Azazel departed his meeting with Lucifer with great hope and a plan in mind to fulfill Lucifer's release from Hell, a plan that took decades to accomplish, as well as Azazel and Lilith's deaths before their plan came to pass.
Armed with the knowledge of the 66 seals, Azazel crafted a plan to break the final seal by finding the prophesied special child that would be strong enough to kill Lilith when the time came. He also devised a plot to break Lilith out of Hell at the right time. In search of the special child spoken of by Lucifer himself, Azazel began to search far and wide for parents sure to bear children with certain psychic abilities if properly activated. He did this with many children, knowing that one day he would have to determine which would be powerful enough in the end to kill Lilith and release Lucifer from Hell.
Azazel finally learned of a way to release Lilith from Hell, by means of a portal connecting the Earth to Hell called a Devil's Gate. After discovering the Devil's Gate to be protected by numerous backups including a one hundred mile Devils Trap set in place by the legendary Samuel Colt and that the key to the gate was gun created by Colt himself, Azazel began to also search for this key and found another use for the special child he sought: The demon Casey claims that demons have a belief system just like humans, but while humans believe in God as a higher power, demons view Lucifer in the same regard.
Casey tells Dean that Lucifer was once an angel, and that his name means "light-bringer. Dean is dragged into Hell by Lilith's Hellhounds at the end of the third season  - this is due to the bargain with the Crossroad Demon to revive Sam in exchange for his soul. Dean refused the offer each time; however, after thirty years of pain and misery, Dean began to crack and finally could take no more, and so he accepted Alastair's offer, getting out of his own torture and taking up torturing other souls for a total of ten years.
Dean did not know that this was the first seal that bound Lucifer in Hell, and that as long as the true first seal remained intact, the others could not be broken. This had been Lilith and Alastair's plan all along: From the moment Dean first began torturing souls under Alastair's tutelage, the first seal binding Lucifer was at last broken, enabling Lilith and several hundred demons now on Earth to begin breaking other seals in order to release Lucifer from his prison.
The fourth season of the series chronicles the efforts of Lucifer's demon minions to break the other seals. The seals operated as locks on a door. Some of these included the Rising of the Witnesses , the summoning of Samhain , and the sacrifice of two Reapers under the Solstice moon. Dean is rescued from Hell after four months and soon after, he is recruited, along with his brother Sam, to fight against Lilith's forces to save the other seals from being broken. As it was nearly impossible to know which seals Lilith would choose to target, it was also next to impossible to stop her from breaking others.
Finally, near the end of the fourth season, only the true final seal remained: Lilith had planned out the breaking of the seals, and once sixty-five of them were broken, she prepared to play her own personal role in Lucifer's release, to die in order to ensure the release of her creator and the coming of the Apocalypse. Lilith mocked Sam to override the pleas from his brother, and Sam killed Lilith with his powers. As Lilith's blood began forming a portal to Lucifer's Cage , Ruby revealed that she had been working with Lilith all along and that Lucifer himself had foretold that only Sam could kill Lilith.
Dean killed Ruby with her own demon-killing knife with Sam's help. The portal formed by Lilith's blood opens the door to Lucifer's Cage in Hell, allowing him to rise once more. As the gate to Hell fully opened and Lucifer's true angelic essence began to ascend out of the cage to Earth, the brothers attempted to flee, only to have the chapel's doors slam shut and lock.
Seeing that running was futile, they turned and watched in horror as the portal opened and the Devil's piercing true angelic voice rang through the church. Though they fell to the ground in pain, they were teleported by God onto a plane passing over Ilchester at that moment, from which they watched as Lucifer's essence shot up into the sky from where St. Mary's Convent stood, blowing it apart. This signaled the beginning of the Apocalypse. Now free, Lucifer set out to find a vessel , someone Lucifer could take control of in order to walk the Earth. Lucifer's chosen vessel turned out to be a lonely man named Nick , whose wife and baby were killed by an intruder who broke into their home one night.
Lucifer began to manipulate Nick, making him start to see things in his sleep, like mass amounts of blood dripping out of his dead child's crib, hearing his dead child crying through a baby monitor, and making his child's swing move without apparent cause. Lucifer then appeared in Nick's dream again, taking the form of his dead wife to communicate with him.
Lucifer explained to Nick that he needed his permission to take over his body, but Nick refused. Lucifer then told Nick some of his origins, such as how he loved God "too much" and felt that though God created them that He should not be allowed to "toy" with them. He went on to further manipulate Nick, explaining that God didn't do anything to stop the death of his family, making Him either sadistic or meaning that He simply didn't care.
Lucifer then tempted Nick, saying that it was God's fault that his family died and that if he allowed him to take over his body, he would make sure justice is served.
Nick agreed, and in a burst of bright light, Lucifer took over his vessel, regaining much of his former strength and full corporeal form. Some days after that, Lucifer appeared to Sam in the form of his deceased girlfriend Jessica Moore , telling him that no matter how many times he ran away he will always be part of the supernatural, people who get close to him will get killed, and that there is no hope for him. The next night he appeared to Sam as Jessica once again, but when Sam said there was hope for him, Lucifer dropped the masquerade and appeared in Nick's form and told Sam that Nick was simply a "plan B" before he revealed Sam was his true vessel.
After Sam states he'd kill himself before that, Lucifer states he'd just resurrect him soon. He also declares that he will never lie or trick Sam into saying Yes , but he will do so willingly, before disappearing. Shortly after , Zachariah finds Dean and sends him five years into the future so that Dean can see the repercussions which will follow if he refuses to be Michael's vessel.
In the year , Dean discovers a world in which Lucifer won the war due to Sam saying "Yes". This Lucifer manages to kill the Dean of that universe but he chooses to spare Past Dean. He talks about the inevitability of him losing the war before Dean is taken back to his current year by Zachariah. While noting comparisons between the Winchester brothers and the two archangels, Gabriel states that their relationship mirrors Michael and Lucifer's. It is shown that Nick's body is beginning to deteriorate, as he cannot properly contain Lucifer's angelic essence. True vessels give archangels a full corporeal body to manifest in while on Earth.
Sam and Dean plan to fight him and the demon Crowley gives them the Colt to kill him, believing that Lucifer intends to destroy the demon kind once humanity is gone. Lucifer speaks to Castiel, asking him whether he came with the Winchesters. Castiel lies that he came alone, but Lucifer is not fooled, though he admires the other angel 's loyalty. Lucifer invites Castiel to join him, reasoning that, as two of Heaven 's castoffs, they are on the same side and Heaven will hunt Castiel if they manage to defeat Lucifer.
Meg approaches her father, asking what to do with the Winchesters, and Lucifer tells her to leave them be, and gives her a reassuring touch. Lucifer begins conducting the ritual to free Death. The Winchesters locate him, and while Sam distracts him, Dean shoots him through the skull with the Colt. He crumples to the ground, but after a few moments he reawakens, and slowly gets to his feet, expressing his pain at being shot by the Colt. He punches Dean into a tree, and continues to work on the ritual.
When Sam asks him about the missing townspeople, Lucifer reveals that the women and children are in the mass grave he has been filling in, and that all the men are possessed. He tries to convince Sam that it was necessary, and insists that Sam should understand what he is doing, as someone who has always been out of place in his own family. Lucifer completes the ritual by commanding the demons around him to sacrifice themselves.
Castiel, who has managed to escape, takes Sam and Dean away. Lucifer sees, but does not interfere. He turns, and greets Death. Due to the ongoing apocalypse, a group of Pagan gods gather to discuss the Apocalypse threatening to destroy the Earth while holding the Winchesters captive. Lucifer is tipped off about their meeting by Mercury. Upon arrival, Lucifer expresses his disgust with the pagan gods' lack of loyalty and obliterates at least eight of them in a bloody massacre until only Kali and the Winchesters remain.
It is here that Gabriel intervenes on their behalf and sends them away before confronting his brother alone. Gabriel tells Lucifer that he still loves him and that he is on nobody's side but humanity's. He tells Lucifer that he has no legitimate grievance and is merely jealous that humanity replaced him in the foremost of God's affections and that it is time for him to grow up. Gabriel wields his Archangel Blade against Lucifer one of the few weapons that could truly kill him and his kind which causes him to remain cautious during their exchange. Gabriel attempts to keep Lucifer distracted with a copy of himself while the real Gabriel tries to sneak up behind him and stab him.
Lucifer sees through the charade, however, and turns his brother's own blade upon him, telling him that the trick he just tried to pull amounted to "amateur hocus pocus" and reminding Gabriel that he learned all of his tricks from him. After Gabriel dies, Lucifer looks down upon his brother's corpse and lightly grieves for his brother's passing, openly weeping.
The Winchesters learn in a posthumous message from Gabriel, that they have no chance at all of killing Lucifer without his aid, though they can still trap him back in his cage in Hell if they can acquire the four rings of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Once they possess all of the rings, a plan is formed for Sam to consent to possession by Lucifer and then for him to jump into Lucifer's Cage with the Archangel in tow, a plan which Dean initially is resistant to but ultimately comes to accept the idea after realizing that Sam is now grown up and can make his own choices.
Lucifer doodling a Devil's Trident in the frost. During the final phases of the Apocalypse, Lucifer is tracked to Detroit , Michigan. Having ingested gallons of Demon Blood , Sam finally consents to Lucifer's possession even though the Devil reveals he already knows of their plan to try to force him back into his Cage.
Despite this, Sam goes forward with the plan in an agreed proposition with Lucifer: Sam then says "Yes". The archangel quickly abandons his vessel to become one with Sam Winchester, knocking both out momentarily.

This gives Dean the time he needs to open the cage before Sam seemingly recovers and walks toward the cage's mouth only to turn around and reveal that Lucifer is now in control of Sam's body. He closes the cage , takes the rings and vanishes. Lucifer gathers several members of Azazel 's demonic minions before him. Demon -possessed humans from Sam's past that secretly manipulated his entire life as they worked for Azazel just as Brady had done. The Devil decides to "take the gag off" and allow Sam to speak, telling him that he is his true family and that he should embrace their union. Hoping to appease Sam, Lucifer offers an olive branch to him by killing the demon-occupied people such as Sam's prom date, one of his former teachers, and all others present in revenge for their manipulation of Sam's life.
Sam is only able to speak as his own reflection and finds himself outmatched by Lucifer. Michael and Lucifer at the Stull Cemetery. The next day, Lucifer travels to Stull Cemetery outside Lawrence, Kansas , the place where he is fated to meet his older brother, Michael , who has since gained consent from Adam for their final confrontation. Lucifer tries to dissuade Michael from their battle and blames their current situation on God , suggesting that they may be able to just walk away.
Although he strongly considers it, Michael, however, refuses to back down, stating that he must be a "good son" to their Father while chastising Lucifer for not taking any of the blame for what has happened.mixseller.ru/zithromax-azithromycine-et-covid-19.php

Lucifer insults Dean by telling him that his actions amount to a whole new level of stupid, even for him as the latter glares him. Before an angered Michael can attempt to remove Dean from the scene, Castiel appears and hurls a molotov cocktail of holy oil at the elder archangel, banishing him. Lucifer, outraged over Castiel's actions, snaps his fingers and obliterates the angel. He then begins to beat Dean but is shot several times by Bobby Singer before he turns and telekinetically snaps Bobby's neck. Continuing his assault on Dean, the Archangel states that he will break every one of Dean's bones and make Sam feel it.
Despite the brutal beating he takes, Dean does not resist and merely tells Sam that he will not leave him. As Lucifer attacks Dean, he glances in the back of the Impala at an old army figure Sam had stuck in the ashtray as a child. The Archangel is then overwhelmed by all of Sam's happy memories of his life with Dean leading up to now, with his love for his brother finally breaking Lucifer's grip on Sam's body, allowing Sam to take control of the Devil at last. Sam tells Dean that everything is going to be alright and that he now has Lucifer under control before tossing the Horsemen's rings to the ground and reciting the incantation to open Lucifer's Cage.
As Sam goes to the mouth of the pit to throw himself in, Michael reappears and demands a fight with Lucifer, stating that it is his destiny to do so. Sam disregards this however and, with one last look at Dean, outstretches his arms and begins to fall backwards into the mouth of the cage. Michael attempts to stop him but only ends up being pulled down into the pit alongside his brother as the portal shuts behind them in a thunderous flash of white light, leaving behind only the red-hot rings of the Horsemen.
Although Sam was brought back from the cage , albeit without his soul , Lucifer and Michael were still inside the cage. Castiel said that they were in the deepest corner of Hell and that they were probably torturing Sam's soul, having nothing else to do and blaming him for their imprisonment. Raphael planned to break Michael and Lucifer free to continue God 's plan.
This led to a civil war in Heaven. Raphael's side wanted to continue the Apocalypse by setting Michael and Lucifer free, while Castiel's side wanted to prevent it from happening again. At the end of season six, Raphael's side loses the civil war as Castiel kills Raphael and soon after his followers after imbibing all the souls of Purgatory into his vessel along with the Leviathans. Lucifer is still in the cage , but appears as a hallucination , due to Sam 's memories of his time in Hell. This first happens with Sam shortly after the Leviathans had been released, where Lucifer tells Sam that the world he has been in for the last year is not real and Sam is still in the cage.
A new form of torture which Lucifer prides himself on as being his best yet. Lucifer continues to taunt Sam on how this world isn't real. He points out that he made this world, because it was the most believable. Sam later confronts Lucifer and asks him why he doesn't end this dream world to which Lucifer responds by saying that he will only end it when Sam can no longer take it anymore.
Lucifer later changes into Dean and tricks Sam into leaving Bobby's house. Dean explains to Sam how to tell the difference between hallucinations and reality. Once at the destination, he reveals himself to prove he can control Sam's "dream". Although Lucifer is proven to be a hallucination when Dean explains to Sam how to tell the difference between hallucinations and reality.
Despite being proven as a figment of Sam's imagination, Lucifer informs Sam that he's not going anywhere. Bobby asks about Sam's mental state and Sam comments that he has it under control while touching his scar. Bobby doesn't believe this but lets it go. In Death's Door , Sam is seen using his scar to keep Lucifer at bay while dealing with the state of Bobby Singer after being shot in the head by the Leviathans ' leader Dick Roman. Lucifer returns in Repo Man , once again trying to tempt Sam into acknowledging his existence, thereby "letting him in" [to his head] again.
He eventually succeeds after 'helping' Sam during the case. The episode ends with him once again gleefully tormenting Sam while Dean sleeps after a hard day's work. He again returns in The Born-Again Identity where his torture became so bad Sam was put in a mental institution. Lucifer continued to torture him, linking it to when they were in the pit, making him hallucinate maggots in his food, throwing fire crackers at him to keep him up. Eventually, it got too much, and Sam snapped, his mind was so broken that it couldn't be healed reaching the point where all people that Sam saw was Lucifer.
Lucifer, uncaring about the change, just calmly said, "Hello brother" and presumably went on to torture Castiel as he did to Sam. Castiel later reveals in Reading Is Fundamental that Lucifer's appearance to him was more of an "aftertaste" of Sam's experiences, which quickly wore off, eventually replaced by visions of everything Castiel had done wrong. In Goodbye Stranger , while Lucifer himself doesn't appear, it is revealed that he has a series of crypts that are buried around the world containing important things, including the Angel Tablet.
Eventually Dean and Castiel found the tablet in an angel-proofed box in one of his crypts. In Holy Terror , Lucifer's corruption of the Garden is revealed when Metatron confronts Gadreel about the matter and uses Gadreel's failure and his desire to atone for his mistakes, to get his assistance with his own plans. In order to save his brother, Cain made a deal with Lucifer to take Abel's place in Hell in exchange for Abel getting into Heaven. Lucifer agreed if Cain killed his brother and gave him the Mark of Cain afterwards. In Brother's Keeper , after Dean summons Death to kill him due to the Mark's worsening influence on him, Death explains Lucifer's role in the war against Amara and how it was the Mark's power that corrupted Lucifer into being jealous of humanity.
He tells Dean that if he wants to be rid of the Mark without unleashing the Darkness, he must pass it on as Lucifer did to Cain. In Out of the Darkness, Into the Fire , a demon tells Crowley that after the Darkness was released, there was an uproar from Lucifer's Cage , believing that Michael or Lucifer was trying to warn them.

In Baby , Sam believes he's having another vision, when Lucifer appears to him in the guise of a young John. That the Darkness is coming and only the boys could stop it. Sam insisted that there should be a way to stop the Darkness, but John only answered, "God helps those who help themselves. Two hands are seen to be grasping the wall of the cage, though it remains unclear who the hands belong to. With the help of Crowley and Rowena , Sam is able to summon Lucifer himself into a small cage in the depths of Hell where he is rendered powerless by warding from the Book of the Damned and holy fire.
Lucifer manifests in the form of Nick and Sam explains the situation and his visions from God. Lucifer tells Sam that the visions mean that God needs his help to defeat the Darkness and he needs Sam to say " yes " again so he can get out and help. Lucifer insists that the visions are the Word of God and Sam needs to do what they say.
Sam finally decides not to say yes, but the warding suddenly fails and Lucifer teleports Sam into the cage with him. Sam refuses to be afraid due to his visions, but Lucifer explains the truth: The release of the Darkness damaged the Cage and it allowed Lucifer to reach out to Sam's mind and implant the visions. Lucifer tells Sam he's now trapped with him and taunts a terrified Sam by saying he was the hunter's only hope of escaping.
In The Devil in the Details , it is revealed Lucifer entered Rowena's dreams seeking her help with a plan to bring Sam into the cage, promising to make her his queen in exchange. In the present, Lucifer shows Sam a memory of Sam as a teenager when he was a hero and then when he was with Amelia Richardson , saying that Sam had gone soft after Dean went to Purgatory.
Lucifer tells Sam that the Sam who had defeated Lucifer and returned him to the Cage would not have allowed Dean to talk him out of boarding up Hell. Lucifer attempts to get Sam to say "yes" again as Lucifer insists he's the only one who can beat the Darkness with Gabriel and Raphael dead and Michael having gone insane. Sam refuses, knowing that whoever wins between Lucifer and Amara, the world loses. Lucifer starts to beat on Sam when Castiel and Dean arrive to stop them.
Lucifer teleports the two into the cage and Sam, Dean and Castiel fight Lucifer to buy Rowena time to send him back to the Cage. As Rowena is about to, Castiel asks if Lucifer can really beat the Darkness and when he confirms he can, Castiel says "yes". Lucifer possesses Castiel which anchors him and keeps him from returning to the Cage. Lucifer poses as Castiel until Sam and Dean are gone and then returns to Hell where he reveals himself to Crowley and Rowena.
After making sure Rowena is the only one who can open the Cage, Lucifer snaps her neck and then takes a seat across from Crowley. During Into the Mystic , Lucifer returns to the surface and arrives at a park. He feeds the ducks in the pond before sitting down and admiring the humans around him.
An angel however, spots him and Lucifer decides to take a nature walk. Although he tries to talk the angel into trusting he is here to stop the Darkness, the angel refuses and makes a move to kill him. Lucifer snaps his fingers, instantly killing the angel. Lucifer goes to the Bunker in search for a spell that can summon the Darkness. Dean finds him but still believes he is Castiel, and Lucifer plays along.
Dean confesses he is drawn to the Darkness in ways he cannot resist and that it scares him. Lucifer reassures him that it's alright. After having a bunch of weapons brought to him from his crypts , Lucifer admits that defeating the Darkness was more of a "team effort" than he let on and he can't defeat her alone. As Lucifer taunts Crowley, he gets a call from the Winchesters and is shocked to learn of their discovery of a Hand of God.
Lucifer returns to the bunker soaking wet and works with Sam to find a spell to remove the warding. Sam locates such a spell, but it requires the power of an archangel. Lucifer begins preparing the spell while Sam offers to allow "Castiel" to use his soul to increase "his" power so it will work. Lucifer reveals himself to Sam, seeing that he no longer has a use for him and begins to draw power from Sam's soul while planning to use it to destroy him and make it look like an accident. Before he can kill Sam, Castiel manages to regain control but informs Sam that he can't eject Lucifer as it's taking all of his strength to keep Lucifer from killing Sam.
Castiel also informs Sam that they need Lucifer as Castiel can no longer time travel. As Delphine Seydoux unleashes the power of the Hand of God, the warding is destroyed and Lucifer returns Dean to the present as the Bluefin is obliterated. Sam reveals Lucifer's true identity to Dean and Lucifer throws Dean across the bunker. Lucifer attempts to use the Hand of God, but finds its power depleted. As Lucifer stalks towards Dean, Sam manages to banish him from the bunker.
A week later , Lucifer is ordering the demons to locate a Hand of God. He orders Simmons to pretend to side with Crowley so the former King would lead them somewhere useful, which turns out to be a secret lockup. Lucifer follows them to the location. Once there, he reveals to Crowley that his plan was to rid Crowley of his last inch of defiance. However, Crowley tricked them into thinking the rod was inside a case but he had, in reality, stashed it nearby and proceeds to strike Lucifer with it, sending him tumbling a few feet away.
Crowley absorbs the rod's power and prepares to blast Lucifer with it, but Simmons shields Lucifer and dies. Lucifer is knocked back by the sheer force of the blast, but with Crowley having depleted the rod, Lucifer regains the upper hand and punches Crowley, sending him over a pile of books. When Lucifer leans over, the demon is gone.
After sending his demons on a worldwide search for Crowley, Lucifer enters Heaven , where he meets and kills Jofiel. He gathers the rest of the angels to talk them into trusting his aide in the coming battle with the Darkness, citing again that he was right about how bad humans were. The angels eventually agree to listen to his command, but an attack from the Darkness disturbs everyone in Heaven. Later on, Dean summons Lucifer to a church with the promise of giving him the Horn of Joshua. Sam summons a ring of holy fire around the archangel once he arrives, and use an angel suppressing sigil to get Castiel to talk to them.
Lucifer proves too powerful for the sigils to work. Crowley, who has now sided with the Winchesters, decides to enter Castiel's body to speak with the angel himself. Unfortunately, Castiel has lost most interest in the war, allowing Lucifer in the form of Nick to approach Crowley and attack him.
Just as Lucifer is about to suffocate Crowley up against a wall, Sam and Dean respond to a distress call and exorcise Crowley, thus saving his life. Lucifer takes back control of the vessel and approaches the brothers, since the wardings have worn off. He is interrupted in his torturing of Sam and Dean when Amara bursts in, looking for Rowena, who had been assisting the brothers.
Having taken the Horn of Joshua, Lucifer attacks Amara with it. The weapon, combined with Lucifer's powers proves too weak to even harm The Darkness. Amara brings Lucifer towards her and takes him elsewhere, for a "nice long chat". Amara tells a bloodied Lucifer that she is going to use "God's favorite, his first son" as bait, and proceeds to torture the archangel, brushing aside his suggestion that they could work together against God. Lucifer begins screaming in agony. In All in the Family , Amara continues to torture Lucifer who is badly beaten and burned from it.
Lucifer continues to refuse to call out to God to save him and Amara sends a message to Dean of Lucifer's state in hopes of reaching God. Lucifer taunts the group, but agrees to put aside his differences with God and the Winchesters to help them fight Amara. Metatron frees Lucifer , but Lucifer is unable to teleport the group out in his injured and weakened state. Donatello senses Amara approaching so he and Sam flee in the Impala with Lucifer while Metatron stays behind and sacrifices himself to allow them to get away.
As the group flees, Amara appears in the middle of the road and prepares to kill them. However, before she can succeed, God teleports the Impala and its passengers to the Men of Letters bunker , saving them. There, Lucifer is reunited with God for the first time in millions of years and the two comment on how much the other has changed. To Lucifer's surprise, God heals his injuries from Amara's torture, implying that he has forgiven him.
While Sam and Dean are out buying groceries, Lucifer and God talk. Lucifer asks where God was and asks if he suspects healing him would earn him forgiveness. He sarcastically remarks that God returned when the apes sent a distress signal, prompting Dean - who had returned by then - to remind that "these apes saved your ass".
Annoyed, Lucifer attempted to smite the brothers with a snap of his fingers, but found he couldn't. God told the Winchesters he was preventing Lucifer from harming them, which annoyed Lucifer further. Sam tried to remind the pair that they had a common foe to deal with, but Lucifer was still unhappy and challenged God to "say it".
A lack of response prompt Lucifer to storm off and lock himself in Sam's room, saying he would only leave if God had something to say. The brothers managed to get God and Lucifer to sit and talk, during which Lucifer complained that God always acted like he had a reason for everything, and that locking him up for something the Mark caused him to do was his fault, despite Lucifer being God's son. After banishing Sam and Dean, God confessed that he did love Lucifer the most, and suffered from disappointment, and was truly sorry for his actions, to which Lucifer finally forgave.
God and Lucifer reconciled their differences and the Archangel's allegiance was with his Father again. Afterwards, Lucifer, God, Sam and Dean gathered in the war room to discuss their plan. God wanted to trap Amara again and needed substitutes for the archangels. Dean and Sam decided to recruit the demons and witches, while Lucifer went back to Heaven and recruited the angels, but found them hostile. He then switched places with Castiel and allowed his younger brother to talk to them.
The plan set, Lucifer gathered with the team at the location where they plan to trap Amara. Lucifer meets Crowley and Rowena here, and they have a bit of an argument over which species is better. When Amara does arrive, Lucifer waits inside for Amara to enter in her damage state.
Amara sees God for the first time and walks up to him. Lucifer takes this opportunity to impale her with his spear, and Amara to falls to her knees. Lucifer is ripped from his vessel by Amara. Lucifer attempts to impale her again, but God stops him. As God prepares to seal Amara away again, a furious and enraged Amara retaliates and levitates her brother while choking him.
Lucifer, with his spear , charges at Amara again but is easily deflected. Amara says "Goodbye nephew" and rips the archangel from his vessel, leaving Castiel unconscious on the floor. Castiel tells him that Amara ripped Lucifer out of him and he doesn't know what happened to Lucifer after that. Later, Dean tells Castiel he gets why Castiel agreed to possession by Lucifer and it was the right call even though it didn't work. However, he has been severely weakened by Amara ' attack on him and is unable to find a suitable vessel , jumping across multiple vessels and burning them out.
Lucifer utilizes two demons to clean up his burned out vessels with Crowley following them in an attempt to find and kill Lucifer to reclaim and solidify his own position as Ruler of Hell while Lucifer is weakened. Crowley eventually tracks the demons to a house where Lucifer has burned out all of the family members except for the son who he is currently utilizing as his vessel. Afraid the demons are being followed, Lucifer refuses to meet them face to face and they are killed by Crowley. Crowley figures out who Lucifer is using as his vessel, but by the time he tracks Lucifer down, he has burned the vessel out and moved on.
Much as he did with Nick , Lucifer creates hallucinations to convince the depressed musician to give him permission to possess his body. Vince does so after Lucifer makes Vince believe he'll be reunited with his late lover. Lucifer quickly gets comfortable in his new vessel, being interrupted only once by one of Vince's bandmates. After Lucifer informs the rocker that he won't be going to rehearsal, telling him he has plans, the bandmate grows annoyed but Lucifer knocks him out of the room.
Lucifer then smugly reminds him that he told him he had plans. Lucifer quickly travels to Crowley's throne room where he confronts the former King of Hell. He marches up to the demon and tells him to get off of his furniture but Crowley just mocks Lucifer for his choice in a new vessel. Crowley then offers Lucifer a deal; telling him that Lucifer would be better off running Heaven in God's absence and should allow Crowley to deal with the demons.
Lucifer seems to consider it for a moment before reminding Crowley that he could smite him into oblivion. Before it escalates, Rowena appears and puts a paralysis spell on Lucifer's vessel.
Gabriel - The War in Heaven
The devil assures Crowley that the spell won't hold him for long before Crowley splashes acid into Lucifer's face, wanting to damage his vessel so Rowena could exorcise him and send him back to the cage. Lucifer overcomes the magic, however, showing off his wings before healing his vessel's injuries. Crowley flees in fear while Lucifer takes Rowena captive. In The Foundry , Lucifer pays Vince's sister Wendy a visit and heals her of her paralysis as part of the agreement he made to get Vince's permission. Seeing that his new vessel is already beginning to show signs of decay, he orders Rowena to cast a spell that will ensure he can keep using Vince, as he finds that the vessel suits him.
However, during the ritual, Rowena instead speeds up Vince's degrading process, much to Lucifer's fury.
Gabriel - The War in Heaven by Ellen Traylor (2004, Paperback)
Proclaiming that Rowena can't destroy him, Rowena agrees, and sends both Lucifer and his rotting vessel to the bottom of the ocean. In Rock Never Dies , Lucifer is drawn to a fossilized feather from his wings, which is in the possession of young wannabe satanists. Lucifer teleports to them, and uses the feather to temporarily heal his rotting vessel, which has deteriorated even more from his time in the ocean. One of the satanists recognizes him as Vince Vincente and Lucifer realizes that he could gain devotion using his vessel's fame.
He travels to Los Angeles and quickly begins to boost Vincente's fame. He tests out the devotion of those close to Vince, even convincing a groupie to harm herself for him. When Lucifer is threatened by a music producer after he fails to properly portray Vince by not playing new music, he casually kills the producer and goes to a show his band is putting on for publicity. However, he notices that his vessel is beginning to decay again when he arrives.
Before the show, Lucifer tries to kill the rest of Vince's band but is interrupted by Castiel and Crowley. They ask why he's parading around as a rock star and he explains that it's fun, not wanting to have to deal with the baggage of being the devil. He then easily overpowers and beats down both Castiel and Crowley before taking the stage in front of a cheering crowd, where Sam and Dean are waiting.
Lucifer prepares to slaughter the crowd but Dean fires a gun, forcing the crowd out. Lucifer keeps the Winchesters inside, surprised to see them. When Dean tries to use enochian handcuffs on him, he easily melts them off of his wrist. He stops another attack from Castiel before being questioned about why he is doing this after making up with God.
Lucifer explains that God apologized for abandoning him only to leave again immediately after. He felt that God used him to help defeat Amara but only for that purpose. Furious, Lucifer declares that there's no point in any of their actions anymore, that there is nothing of God's creation except people looking for distractions. He declares that he is going to just keep on smashing God's toys and making the Winchesters watch because he has nothing better to do. Vince's body begins to completely burn out, with Lucifer having overexerted himself inside of it. Lucifer doesn't mind though, saying he would just go onwards and upwards and leaves the rock star's body for good.
With Vincente dead, Sam points out that Lucifer was dangerous when he had a motive, but now he could be even more dangerous just having fun. Louis when Wallace burns out. Lucifer's possession of the Archbishop is noticed by his staff and they attempt an exorcism , enraging Lucifer who slaughters them all. The Archbishop then burns out and Lucifer is forced to move on. After the Archbishop's death, Lucifer is able to get consent from the President of the United States Jefferson Rooney in exchange for teaching Rooney how to make America more spiritual. As Rooney, Lucifer kills a Secret Service agent that interrupted his communication with his vessel within his mind in order to learn how to pose as the President.
After Kelly tells Lucifer that he would make a wonderful father, Lucifer decides to conceive a Nephilim with her. Kelly calls Lucifer and claims she can't have his child, prompting Lucifer to travel to her motel room with two Secret Service agents. After the agents confirm that the room is clear, Lucifer enters and Kelly reiterates to him that she can't give birth to his child. Lucifer tells Kelly that he will have to insist and begins strangling her.
Sam then emerges from the bathroom and activates a sigil on the door, amusing Lucifer as they have fought many times. Sam then raises a hyperbolic pulse generator , causing Lucifer to go after him, but Sam activates it before Lucifer can reach him. As the generator begins to exorcise him from Rooney, Lucifer attempts to throw everyone with telekinesis , but Sam's sigil has weakened his powers to the point that it barely even affects them.
Lucifer yells that it isn't over to Sam who tells him to "go to Hell. Following Lucifer's defeat, Castiel discovers that Rooney survived Lucifer's possession and erases his memory of it. The Secret Service discover the Winchesters over Rooney's unconscious body and are believed to have attempted to assassinate Rooney due to Lucifer's manipulations, resulting in their arrest. Despite the dangers, Kelly decides to keep Lucifer's child and runs off on Castiel rather than get an abortion.
In First Blood , Rick Sanchez states that Rooney has no memory of the three days Lucifer possessed him for, though he believes the Winchesters did something to the President. After escaping Site 94 , the Winchesters tell Sanchez and his boss the truth about how they saved the President from possession by Lucifer, but the two and the few other people with knowledge of the Winchesters' arrest are murdered by Arthur Ketch.
In Stuck in the Middle With You , Lucifer is revealed to be trapped inside a cage located in Crowley's throne room he'd once kept Crowley in. Manifesting in the form of Nick , Lucifer taunts Crowley about the loss of the Colt and he tries to talk Crowley into believing the Winchesters, whom he had just helped out, don't really care about him and that they intend to turn their backs on Crowley. Crowley disregards his comment and tells him to "be quiet", adding the nickname "dog". Lucifer coldly retaliates that "dog" is not his name. In Family Feud , Lucifer is chained to a chair and Crowley states that he had his demons examine Lucifer's Cage on the molecular level and replicate it in the form of chains.
Crowley explains to Lucifer that when he was exorcised from Jefferson Rooney, Crowley had perverted the spell so instead of sending him to the Cage, it sent him to the body of Nick which Crowley's demons had found, repaired and improved so that he could be Lucifer's permanent vessel. Lucifer is amused, believing that the chains won't hold him long and informs Crowley that his child is alive, unlike what Crowley had believed. Lucifer listens with glee to Crowley's phone call with the Winchesters about Gavin MacLeod and asks Crowley for advice as a single parent. Later, Lucifer senses that Dagon is with Kelly and calls out Dagon's name with a smile.
While Crowley is away dealing with the escape of Lucifer's hellhound Ramsey , the demons enter and reveal they set Ramsey free to create a distraction to investigate Crowley's behavior. After making a deal with Lucifer for more power, the demons release Lucifer who immediately combusts them. When Crowley returns, Lucifer taunts him and beats on Crowley before displaying his wings.
However, with snaps of his fingers, Crowley makes Lucifer's wings disappear and causes him intense pain. Crowley reveals Lucifer's true prison is his vessel while the chains were just decoration. Crowley tells Lucifer he will kill Lucifer's son in front of him and will only then just be getting started torturing him.
In The British Invasion , Lucifer checks in on Dagon to make sure she is keeping the baby safe, and hopes she won't fail him a second time. When Crowley returns, Lucifer behaves sad, broken and submissively. He surprises Crowley by licking the floor. Lucifer explains that being Crowley's pet is so much nicer than being with his deranged "little bro", meaning Michael. Believing that he has finally won, Crowley presents the submissive Lucifer to a crowd of demons. Lucifer pretends to speak highly of Crowley, but is secretly ordering said demons to obey him on pain of death.
One demon, Drexel approaches him while Crowley is absent to observe his vessel, and while the demon admits he doesn't know how to undo the system that allows Crowley control over Lucifer, he will try to crack it. Lucifer kisses him in delight and puts his shirt back on. In The Future , a still-restrained Lucifer communicates telepathically with Dagon and is enraged to learn that she has lost Kelly and his son to Castiel. Lucifer, who had promised to form a family with Dagon and his son if she succeeded in bringing him into the world, swears to bring eternal torment upon Dagon instead if she fails.
In There's Something About Mary , Drexel finishes his examination on Lucifer's vessel and is able to reverse the polarity of the system, allowing Lucifer to gain control of Crowley's vessel. Later when Crowley visits Lucifer, Lucifer begins to control Crowley's actions, visibly shocking Crowley. After Lucifer gets out of his chains, Crowley tries to convince Lucifer to spare him, but Lucifer instead uses telekinesis to throw Crowley around as retribution for what he's put him through.
After Lucifer starts cutting Crowley with an Angel Blade and uses it to seemingly kill him, he reclaims his position as Ruler of Hell. Have to wish Traylor would get a decent Editor. There are many editorial mistakes in not only this book but others she has published. What does she say about her imagination? She defines her's in this book. To me, a twisted spin imagination, particularly when Biblical passages by number are referenced.
One person found this helpful. It was a very interesting attempt, however it fell somewhat flat. This story felt very amateurish, and yet I understand this was not the author's first published work. Beautiful descriptions were given about the characters and scenery but had a very childish sounding narrative. Perhaps if the plot had been darker, more sinister. This book is intriguing. It is different from most books written about heaven and angels. I love the way she brings life to each character, displaying their emotions: After all, God has emotions, too. I am just waiting for the sequel -her next book in the series.
Ellen Traylor has once again shown tremendous insight into biblical accounts. She is simply one of the all time greats for biblical novels; her chronicles are probably very close to the actual events. This book was not exactly what I thought it was going to be, but I was glad I read it. I feel it portrayed the darkness that sin brought to God's initial plan for us in a very unique format.
Ellen Gunderson Traylor is one of my favorite writers. I think that in this book she cleverly took imagination and the book of Enoch and wrote a spellbound book. As always a good read.
