What I’m Watching: God Friended Me

God Friended Me: Season 2, Episode 4 “All Those Yesterdays” (B-)

In some ways, this episode wasn’t so far-fetched, but there’s also a crazy degree of monitoring and interference by our friends that was just glossed over as it tends to be. For once, Miles thought that it wasn’t appropriate to say something at a given moment, though it wasn’t actually his decision to make since Joy should have chosen whether or not she wanted to share her own information. It’s a small world indeed as the daughter that Joy never met is on the same soccer team as Cara’s younger sister, providing plenty of family drama as Cara is looking for a new place to live and Joy’s daughter was desperate for answers about her heritage. Ultimately, what Joy chose to do by telling her daughter about her own grandfather in a way that didn’t reveal her own connection to her was sweet and noble, and it appears that her adoptive mother realized the relationship even if she didn’t want to verbally acknowledge it. I’m surprised to see Joy leave so soon after she’s finally gotten on board with all this, and now the team is just excited for a new friend suggestion since they completely missed their chance to meet this mystery artist who can’t be reached and has no plans to ever return to New York, which itself seems highly unlikely. Arthur opting to do a trial run of a job he’ll surely love after Trish told him she wasn’t okay with it is a bad idea, and it’s going to create some serious problems in the run-up to their wedding.
