The season finale begins with an underwhelming showdown between Heaven and Hell. “Every Day” improves in its final third, though, as we are shown two major romances, one that ends happily and one that ends in tragedy. It’s a heartbreaking finale that will be seen as bittersweet for most of the fandom.

We recap the Amazon Prime Video series Good Omens Season 2 Episode 6, “Every Day,” which contains spoilers and explains the Ending.

The second season of Good Omens concludes with chapter six, “Every Day.”

In the finale, Gabriel’s (Jon Hamm) memory loss issues are fully explained, and Heaven faces off against Hell in a second Armageddon.

After all of this chaos, there is just time for Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant) to explore their millennia-spanning relationship further.

Good Omens Season 2 Episode 6 Recap

The showdown between Shax’s demons and Aziraphale’s gang continues in the opening moments of the finale. Aziraphale prepares for war, summoning a protective shield in the store.

Shax taunts the humans, Maggie and Nina, which leads to Maggie accidentally granting the demons permission to step into the bookshop.

As the demons pour in, Aziraphale’s shield keeps them safe, vaporizing the enemies that come near. Maggie and Nina then fight the rest off, brandishing fire extinguishers against the ensuing demon army.

Meanwhile, in Heaven, Muriel takes Crowley to her workspace. Crowley wants to see what really happened to Gabriel. The demon changes into a heavenly outfit and opens up Gabriel’s file.

Why were Gabriel’s memories wiped?

The footage shows that the angels were planning a second Armageddon, but Gabriel vehemently disagreed with their proposal. Because he rejected their plans, he was to be punished with his memories wiped. Gabriel would then be demoted to a junior recording angel position, 38th class.

Gabriel accepted the punishment and began to strip off and then clear out his desk. The footage shows a naked Gabriel exiting Heaven with a cardboard box covering his privates. Taking this information with him, Crowley heads back to Earth.

In the bookstore, Aziraphale and the humans are out of ideas and fire extinguishers. Aziraphale is forced to take out his heavenly halo, which he uses to destroy all of the demons in the vicinity. He worries that this action will start a war with Hell.

Only moments later, Beelzebub and her demons arrive. It was, in fact, a declaration of war after all. Crowley soon arrives to dispel these rumors, though. There will be no war today.

Crowley explains the circumstances surrounding Gabriel and then reveals the secrets of the mysterious cardboard box.

Where are Gabriel’s memories?

Gabriel had written himself a message on the bottom of the box. It explains that his memories are hiding inside a fly. Beelzebub hands the fly over to Gabriel and he reclaims his lost memories. The memories come flooding back to Gabriel.

In these memories, Gabriel and Beelzebub meet to negotiate the terms of a second Armageddon. Gabriel manages to convince Beelzebub to postpone the apocalypse and end the war altogether.

These two enemies quickly become romantically entangled with one another.

They meet at the Resurrectionist Pub, where they hear the Buddy Holly song. Gabriel performs a small miracle, making sure that the jukebox plays the song Everyday forevermore. Then Beelzebub gifts Gabriel with the special fly, which he places inside a matchbox.

In the present, Gabriel thanks Beelzebub for everything. They are clearly in love with one another. The angels and the demons argue over these traitors who stand before them. Both Heaven and Hell want to claim them for their own and punish them before their leaders.

Beelzebub offers Shax her old job as Grand Duke of Hell. This soothes Shax, who allows Beelzebub and Gabriel to leave; they are free from Hell’s shackles. Heaven agrees to let the loved-up couple go as well. Gabriel and Beelzebub hold hands and disappear together to start a new life elsewhere.

While the angels argue with Aziraphale, the Metatron (the spokesperson of God) enters the store. He orders the angels to return to Heaven immediately. Then the Metatron asks to speak with Aziraphale in private. This gives Maggie and Nina a chance to speak with Crowley alone.

They tell the demon to open up with Aziraphale, to tell the angel how he truly feels.

Good Omens Season 2 Ending Explained

The season ends with Aziraphale and Crowley having their big chat alone together. Aziraphale has great news; he’s been offered Gabriel’s old job. He will be the Supreme Archangel of Heaven. The Metatron has even allowed Crowley to be reinstated as an angel as well.

Crowley is furious, though; he wants to be with Aziraphale on Earth, but he doesn’t want to return to Heaven or Hell. He tells Aziraphale how he really feels, but Aziraphale wants to make a difference in Heaven.

Crowley kisses Aziraphale before they part ways. It’s a heartbreaking ending, the two lovers finally admitting their feelings for one another but then still separating regardless.

Muriel is placed in charge of Aziraphale’s bookshop, and the Metatron explains Aziraphale’s first big project for Heaven. They are working on the Second Coming. Crowley drives off in his Bentley, and Aziraphale heads up to Heaven. Both are saddened by their choices but bound by their beliefs.
