Episode(s) 13.13 Devil's Bargain


Sister Jo is an angel who was formerly known as Anael in Heaven, where she worked as a low-level functionary counting the souls as they arrived. When the angel fall happened, Anael, rather than look for just any vessel to take, listened to the prayers of humans and found a woman praying for her dying husband. Anael struck a deal with this human -- in exchange for saving her husband, Anael would get her as a vessel. Realizing the potential of desperate humans, Anael became a faith healer known as "Sister Jo" who traveled the country healing people for payment.

Anael in Lore

Anael, also known as Haniel, is an archangel from Jewish lore. The name probably derives from Hebrew word for joy - hana'ah. Julie McNiven suggested that Anael was the real angelic name of Anna Milton from Seasons 4-5.
