What I’m Watching: God Friended Me

God Friended Me: Season 2, Episode 8 “The Last Grenelle” (C+)

It’s not at all surprising to me that there was someone else before Miles who used to get friend suggestions from the God account. It also tracks that said person would have concluded that he had to make a choice between following it and his life, and that he wouldn’t be eager to be drawn back into it by the typically invasive Miles. It was odd that both Miles and Cara whined about how everyone they meet always tells them to leave at a certain point since they never listen to them, and all that Miles had to argue about in this case was that Gideon was certain that the God account was actually God, not just someone behind a computer. T.R. Knight from “Grey’s Anatomy” was a fine choice to play Gideon, who predictably ended up helping Miles and Cara just enough to resolve some of Audrey’s issues and not impact his personal life too much. I also recognized Jennifer Ferrin from “Hell on Wheels” as Madeline, who was obviously going to reconnect with Audrey without much trouble despite the circumstances that drove them apart in the first place. Thanks in no small part to what Miles said, Trish appears to have forgiven Arthur for his dishonesty and looks ready to give him a chance to try to balance being bishop and her husband. There was no way that lying about being together to her parents was going to be good for Jaya and Rakesh, but I didn’t see it imploding quite as badly as it did, leaving Rakesh now heartbroken and single, which isn’t going to be good for anyone.
