    How could you not love this epi..?!? Soooo much happens, that I'm glad I don't have to write the summary... ;)

    Andi and Sam finally gets togehter!! Yay, I'm glad this relationship is finally getting a chance, I think they are really cute together! Sam suddenly sees himself getting involved in a rebellion against the devil, and kinda likes the idea of helping the demons to get out of his own deal with the devil. But in doing so, he plays right into the hands of the devil, who off course, saw the rebellion comming. With the, albeit unwilling, help of Sam, the devil gets rid of all the rebellious demons. Except Tony, Sams neighbour survives, and looks pretty angry at Sam... uhhh...moreless

    ****SPOILERS****





    Another outstanding episode. All the reasons why they moved into that particular apartment are revealed in an explosive finale that makes this episode so worth the watch.



    So much happens in this episode that I dont know where to start - so I wont. Ill just dive stratight in. However, the plot contans a number of elements including: Andie and Sam getting together. The gay demon couple's involvement in the Demon Revolution and the Devil's master plan to destroy the whole thing! And how he does it



    Execellent number of locations support the events and gripping action as the story develops. Dialogue is its usual high quality self, providing a good source of laughs in itself. I dont particularly find Andie getting together with Sam any good, but I suspect that we can expect some really wickedness when Sam's supposed girlfriend(the Devils own) returns from her trip to her moms.



    This show keeps getting better and better - and with the finale scene showing the surviving demon revolutionary with eyes full of intent, things arent over by a long shot!



    One of the best episodes from this impressive show.moreless

  • Post-strike still working out for Reaper.

    9.0
    The Rebellion: We find out that Steve and Tony are part of a group of demons that do good in hopes of dethroning the devil, but when Steve finds a new way to take down the devil, same gets involved way too much and isn't really too sure which side he wants to take. The whole idea was sort of brilliant, it could have been saved for a season finale, but I'm hoping they have something for that, which will surpass this episode.



    Relationships: Sam and Andi continue to get together and in this episode, they finally become intimate, but Sam explains to Andi that he can't tell her some things and those things would be his being a reaper. Meanwhile, Josie and Sock seem like they might hit it off again, at least I sure hope they do.moreless
  • Slow start of this new serie but they really have gone full throttle for a great first season finish.

    9.3
    I was getting bored after 5-6 episodes of those recurrent battles against escaped souls, failing to develop the characters and a decent story line. But i really have to admit that since our 3 friends have moved in their new apartment and the "meet the neighbor" episode brought the so waited twist and a great deal of expectation. Also forced to develop the story in depth, raising more questions and excitement heading toward the last stretch. Although i find a bit late in the season to bring the thrill i just hope that its not too late to come up with a great final!!!moreless

    • Ben: I hope she likes peppermint.
      Sock: You could have gotten her any flavor in the world you wanted to, and you gave her peppermint! Really?
      Ben: Yeah, why?
      Sock: Ben, everybody knows peppermint is for jerks, right?

    • Ben: Are you crazy? Josie's going to eat him alive!
      Sock: I know, I know ... God, what I wouldn't give to be on the phone when Josie shoots down Ted-Man-Walking.

    • Devil: You don't like banana splits? What are you, some kind of Commie?

    • Devil: The guy was a lawyer, of course. We have a lot of those in Hell.

    • Andi: Have you ever been hit in the head with shovel?
      Sam: No, I can't say I have.

    • Sock: (to Josie) It's really nice to see that even though I've clearly moved on, that my mark is still all over you. Like dog pee on a pretty, pretty little tree.

    • Sock: What kind of name is "Cubby"? Who's named Cubby?
      Sam: Your name is Sock.
      Sock: (mocks) "Your name is Sock."

    • Devil: I treat you with respect, and you treat me like little bits of dirt.
      Sam: You are so weird.

    • Bob: My name is Bob and I'm a demon.
      Everyone: Hi, Bob!
      Bob: I had a rough week. Started off great. I rode around on Monday, collecting recyclables. Then I dropped coins into expired meters. Then I tried to eat a child. I knew right away it was wrong, so I untied the kid and called my sponsor Randy.

    • Sam: From a bunch of demons I was expecting something more aggressive.
      Steve: We do fun runs.

    • Tony: (about humans) You guys die so quickly. You're like goldfish.

    • Cubby Bryce: Are you willing to wear a cast or a neck brace?
      Sock: Dude, I would be willing to put on your underwear with you still in them for seven figures, tell me more.

    • Ted: But she did call me over to her place to night to help her hook up her DVR. And I think we all know what that means.
      Sock: Yeah, that means she wants you to hook up her DVR.
      Ted: No, hooking up any appliance is classic gay porn terminology for getting it on. And I'm pretty sure that that translates over to the hetero arena.

    • Tony: Sam is the Devil's friend.
      Sam: Uh, to be clear, I'm not friends with him. He's just kinda clingy.

    • Josie: For the record, I dated you because you're sweet, you don't care what other people think, and you made me laugh.
      Sock: I am all of those things. So, ummm… wanna make out?

    • Sam: I thought you didn't believe in love?
      Devil: I don't believe that humans can feel true pure love. But I know that it exists. I've experienced it myself. I'm not human, remember?
      Sam: You actually loved somebody? Who? (Devil looks up) You mean God? Didn't you try to overthrow him or something.
      Devil: Well, let's just say we had a little fight. I may have been a tad impetuous.
      Sam: But you loved him.
      Devil: With everything that I was, I loved him. And he loved all of us, too.

    • Devil: That is my private, and I do mean private cell phone number.
      Sam: What area code is this?
      Devil: Phoenix.

    • Sam: We have plenty of food. Do you, uh, want papaya, or a steak?

    • Sam: Why'd you do it?
      Devil: I have enough annoyances in my day. (looks at Sam) Exhibit A.
