It's time for the finale as John and his own ineffable husband discuss Good Omens Season 2 Episode 6 "Every Day". It all wraps up as we learn what happened to Gabriel and get a melancholy end for Aziraphale and Crowley.
Based on the book Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman and starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen we’re discussing each of the six episodes of this series one a week. This is our spoiler filled discussion so as always make sure you’ve watched the episode before listening to the podcast.
Good Omens 206 “Every Day” synopsis
While Aziraphale, Nina and Maggie fend off the demons, Crowley discovers the reason for Gabriel's disappearance: he refused to support a second attempt at Armageddon. Gabriel was demoted from his position as an Archangel, but before his memories could be wiped by Saraquel, both him and his memories can not be located in heaven.
Crowley returns to the bookshop, where Aziraphale has successfully fended off the demons and accidentally declared war on Hell by using his halo. Beelzebub appears, and reveals that Gabriel's memories were hidden in the fly inside the box that Gabriel had been carrying.
Gabriel's memories – including those of him conducting a romance with Beelzebub – are restored. He and Beelzebub choose to abandon Heaven and Hell and leave together, for their own versions of heaven and hell…maybe for Alpha Centauri.
As the assembled demons and angels squabble over what happens next, the Metatron arrives sending Michael, Uriel and Saraquel back to heaven, as the demons are taken back to hell. The Metatron has a vacancy left by Gabriel and is looking for a new archangel. He offers Aziraphale Gabriel's former position as well as the ability to restore Crowley's status as an angel if he chooses to work with him. Meanwhile, Crowley prepares to confess his feelings to Aziraphale after a good talking to by Nina and Maggie.
Together at last, Aziraphale informs Crowley that he plans to accept the Metatron's offer, while Crowley asks Aziraphale to abandon Heaven and Hell so they can become and Us, just as Gabriel and Beelzebub did. Caught off guard Aziraphale asks Crowley to instead return to Heaven as an angel to work together, but Crowley refuses the offer realising Aziraphale is being manipulated.
Aziraphale leaves Earth (and Crowley) to go work for Heaven, where the Metatron informs him that his task, for which he has the perfect skill set for will be to enact the Second Coming.
