For those who have been dying to see Jack (Alexander Calvert) come face-to-face with Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) on Supernatural, you're finally going to get your wish. The young nephilim is going to meet his father at long last! Although we don't know when the big meeting will take place this season, we do know that first encounter will come with a lot of emotional baggage.
Despite forging a strong bond with Castiel (Misha Collins) and the Winchesters (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles), meeting the former King of Hell is something that has weighed on Jack's mind over the course of the season. After all, he's still figuring out who he is, and a heart-to-heart with dear old dad could help Jack clear up a few things.
But while Jack has been curious about Lucifer, the Devil himself hasn't put much thought into learning more about Jack... until now. "The desire to see his son is something he's pushed off for a while. I think it kinda scared him, honestly," executive producer Andrew Dabb explains. "So when they finally come together, it means something to him."
As emotional as their first meeting might be, Jack will also be faced with the reality that he may have more in common with his father than he thought — something that will prove difficult to accept. "From Jack's point-of-view, he's heard so much about his father. He's never actually seen him. And in Lucifer, he may see parts of himself that he does not necessarily like," adds Dabb.
