Synopsis

Sam walks into the resistance outpost with Lucifer trailing behind him. Lucifer takes the credit for Sam being alive and claims he is there to help defeat Michael. He also reveals that without his grace keeping the portal open, it will close in 31 hours.

Lucifer approaches Jack and Dean immediately intervenes, angrily warning Jack not to listen to Lucifer and demanding Lucifer not talk to Jack. They argue over the semantics of who is Jack’s family. Dean orders Gabriel to kill Lucifer but he is not strong enough to do so. Jack becomes upset and disappears. Cas grabs some warded handcuffs out of Dean’s backpack and uses them to restrain the weakened Lucifer.

Sam apologizes to Dean for leading Lucifer to them, but Dean absolves him. won’t hear of it. They hug and Dean admits that he thought he lost him. The boys then approach Mary, keen to return with her through the portal. Mary admits she is not planning on going back with the boys. She respects the people at the camp, she has fought beside them and she doesn’t want to abandon them. Sam suggests they take the people with them back through the portal and where they can safely plan on how to attack Micahel.

Despite Castiel's protestations, Jack insists on listening to Lucifer to hear his perspective. When Dean intervenes, Jack insists that Lucifer can help them kill Michael.

The Winchesters and the people at the outpost decide to return to the larger resistance group. On the way to the camp, Gabe runs to the humans with angels after him. They stand off against them before Lucifer kills them all. He dissolves his handcuffs - he knew they wouldn’t hold him but was demonstrating that he was no threat.

The group arrives at Singer Auto Salvage where Bobby awaits. Dean asks about Charlie and Bobby says she has gone with Ketch to take out an angel kill squad. They brief Bobby on their plan with the survivors. They present it to the others and agree that they’ll take a vote.

Lucifer continues to give Jack his own perspective on how he was treated by God. Gabriel interrupts and argues that Lucifer was not a victim in his dealings with Dad. Later, Gabriel tells Lucifer that Jack will see what he is, a cancer that corrupted the innocent and beautiful humans. Gabriel says that it is no chance of redemption for Lucifer. Lucifer is affected by his brothers’ words and a single tear falls.

When Bobby learns that Charlie has been taken Dean, Sam, Cas and Bobby follow up with the person that told Charlie about the kill squad. Cas uses his powers to interrogate the man.

Ketch and Charlie have been taken to an empty building after being captured. The angels torture Ketch while Charlie watches. Soon an “expert” arrives in the form of alternate world Castiel. Still in Jimmy Novak’s vessel he has a previous eye injury, wears a black trench coat and speaks with an accent. He touches a bound Charlie to take the secrets from her mind claiming that he can do this until her mind no longer exists. The lights go out and the Winchesters have arrived to save Charlie and Ketch. Alternate Castiel flees and Cas finds him near his vehicle. He quickly kills him.

At Bobby’s the vote has been taken and they have all agreed to go to the other world. They load up a bus, Lucifer driving so they can keep an eye on him. Jack tries to leave them to go and kill Michael, but Sam and Lucifer talk him out of it. They arrive to find the rift starting to close but then glows open again as Rowena doubles her efforts in the bunker. They all move through into the bunker until Sam, Dean, Lucifer, Gabriel and three others are left behind. A comet-type boulder comes out of the sky, knocking the three humans left down dead. Michael has arrived. Lucifer stands to fight him and soon Lucifer is hurt. Michael notices Gabriel and Gabe tells Sam and Dean to go. He will not run anymore. Gabriel moves to Michael and they fight but Michael wins and stabs Gabe with his blade. Gabe falls dead and Sam and Dean get ready to leave. Dean goes through the rift and as Lucifer comes up, Sam holds him back. Lucifer argues he’s hurt but Sam throws him to the ground and goes through the rift just as it closes.

At the bunker there is a party happening. Jack looks upset and Dean tells Cas about Gabe sacrificing himself. He assures Cas that Sam handled Lucifer.

Bobby toasts their escape and assures his people that they will find a way back to get Michael. He also toasts Sam and Dean and welcomes them to the family.

In the alternate world Lucifer is striking a deal with Michael to get back over. He knows how to create the rift. He will get his son and Michael will get everything else.

Quotes

Sam: Hey. Listen, I'm sorry about all this.

Dean: Are you good?
Sam: I'm alive. Yeah.

Dean: Well, then you got nothing to apologize for... I thought I'd lost you, man.
Mary: I fought beside these people. I respect them. I respect their cause. You can't expect me to just abandon them.

Sam: No, Mom, that's not -- You heard what Lucifer said. We have 31 hours --
Mary: I -- Sam... Dean... I know what you went through to come find me. But these people are being slaughtered. They need me here.

Dean: No, we need you, Mom. We do.
Dean: We have been mopping up the world for years. Years. We have been knocked down. We have been possessed. We've lost friends. We've lost family. We've lost each other. And we never walk away, ever. And sometimes, we should've, because not every fight everywhere can be won. It just can't, right? Tell her.

Sam: I think Mom made up her mind.
Dean: See? Wait. What?

Sam: Mom doesn't want to leave these people. So let's take 'em with us.
Jack: Who locked you up?
Lucifer: My Dad, 'cause I told the truth. See, he loved humans so much, he couldn't see their flaws. And I told Him about it, and He got mad. He got -- He felt like I was... personally dumping on His masterpiece, and so He kicked me out. No time-out, no 'go in the corner,' you know anything like that. Just... gone, banished. And yes, as Cas says, I have done some bad things. I had my reasons, and I just want the opportunity to get better. Doesn't everybody? Don't you?
Lucifer: So I was just shaking up the old family tree for, uh, young Jack here. You know, talking about the good old days. How tough Pop was. Right, G? I mean, we -- we butted heads a lot, you know. But, uh... you know, I think -- I think, in hindsight, I should've given Him some slack 'cause, He's, uh. You know, being a dad is tough.

Gabriel: Okay, you think Dad was the 'bad guy,' and you were a victim? You were not a victim. That was just your excuse.
Lucifer: My excuse for what?

Gabriel: For it all, Lucifer. For it all.
Gabriel: Oh, is this the part where you tell me that, uh, Dad made up all those so-called lies about you? Got it.

Lucifer: Yeah! Yeah, Pop locked me up, okay?
Gabriel: Don't you get it? Humans were innocent and beautiful. But you... you couldn't stand that the old man loved them more than He you. So you tempted them and corrupted them just to prove how flawed they were.
Lucifer: You better be careful man.

Gabriel: Dad saw that your evil was like the first few cells of cancer... that it would spread like the disease unless He cut it out. That is why He locked you up, to stop the cancer. But it was too late then. And guess what? It's too late for you now.
Castiel (AW): You align yourself with the h-humans.

Castiel: I vastly prefer them to angels.
Castiel (AW): Don't think that you are better than me. Well, we are the same.

Castiel: Yes. We are.
Lucifer: Sam, what are you doing, man? I'm hurt. Please.
Sam: How did you think this was gonna end?
Bobby: All right, listen up. We made it. Don't know much about this place, but it's a place without Michael, so that's a turn for the better. I don't want none of you goin' soft on me because we are going to get ourselves ready and go back home and set our people free.

Dean: He's been here for five minutes. Look who's taken over the joint.

Bobby: While we're celebrating, let's not forget our brothers and sisters who didn't make it. They will never be forgotten, and we will do right by them. And now a toast to our new brothers -- Sam and Dean Winchester. Thanks, boys. Welcome to the family
Michael: Why should I trust you?

Lucifer: I saw how they do the spell. I know what it takes. It's some blood, some fruit, a glow-y rock, and then... Bam. We step through, both of us.
Michael: And then?
Lucifer: And then I get my son, and you get...

Michael: Everything else. Are we agreed?

Trivia & References

Exodus is the second book in the Jewish Torah and Christian Old Testament. The book details the liberation of the Israelite's from slavery under the Egyptians, as Moses attempted to lead them to the Promised Land.
Alternatively, the episode's title is a reference to the passage of the people of Apocalypse World through the portal to the Bunker, in effect an exodus from their home.
Lucifer: I don't understand all the hostility. You... need... me. I am a walking weapon. I know this Michael. Heck, I beat him. So how 'bout a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T?
Lucifer spelling out "respect" is a reference to the 1967 Aretha Franklin song "Respect".
Lucifer: Wow. I have been waiting for this moment for so long, I almost don't know what to say. This... this dad thing is sort of new to me. So, um... Do -- do you have any questions that you wanna ask? Don't let my status as a legend hold you back. Now just... fire away.

Jack: Why does everyone hate you?
Lucifer: Huh. Wow, he just got right to the -- right to the point. That's good. That's good. Good question. Um... So you've, uh, probably heard the stories. Right? Anything ugly happens, any evil befalls the world, it's my fault. Fake news.

"Fake news" is the dissemination of untrue information as fact. The phrase became popular in the 2016 United States presidential election by then-nominee and current president Donald Trump, who continues to use the phrase to deflect any news he doesn't agree with, regardless of its actual veracity.
Lucifer: So I want you to think about this. Your Grandfather is God. Think about that -- Of all the powerful families in history... Forget the Tudors, Trumps, Jackson Five. We're numero uno.
The Tudors were the family who ruled Great Britain from 1485 until 1603. The Trumps are in reference to President Donald Trump. The Jackson 5 were an American family singing group which gave Michael Jackson his start in the music industry.
Dean: Sam, go back there and check out what Helter Skelter's sayin' to the damn kid.
"Helter Skelter" is the title of a Beatles song from their 1968 White Album. The phrase would become adopted by Charles Manson, who believed it was a coded prophecy telling of an upcoming apocalyptic race war.
Mary: Dean, like it or not, Lucifer is Jack's father. He's going to take an interest in him.

Dean: So what, we're supposed to just let Lucifer drag him over to the dark side?
Mary: Jack isn't going to the dark side. He'll see Lucifer's true nature. And he'll see through his own eyes not yours.

Dark side is a reference to the Star Wars film franchise, where the dark side of the Force is innately tied to the distinctly negative ethical paradigm of the Sith. It is used to refer to someone becoming evil.
Ketch: Are you familiar with a place called Boardwalk?

Angel: No.
Ketch: Well, it's very near Park Place. Go to Oriental Avenue and take the B&O Railroad straight to Hell.

Ketch is referring to places named on the board of Monopoly. It is strange that Ketch, who is English, would make reference to places in the U.S. version of the game, rather than the UK version. There is an actual Supernatural version of the game.
Gabriel: Dude, it's me. I've known you since the stars were made. You can't change. You're incapable of empathy or love. You live to be worshiped or feared. Or both.

Lucifer: Okay. I-I see that you've -- you've drunk the Kool-Aid. Fine.

Drinking the Kool-Aid is a figure of speech used to refer to believing something without critical examination. Its origins are with the cult followers of Jim Jones who drank cyanide-laced punch on his instruction.
