First off this would be a total twist that probably most the audience wouldnt see coming, they could have two villians rather than push more filler and have us wait till episode 20, the season finale to fight michael, I think they need to do it in episode 9, or 10 or whenever the midseason finale is. And then when 2019 arrives, move onto another villian for the remainder of the season. Maybe dark kaia or the shedim. Honestly if they werent dumb and killed off kipling, they could've used him as the villian, granted it would just be another rehash and a poor one at that since he's no crowley or asmodeous or abaddon but they could've wrapped up the hell arc once and for all cause u know the hell arc will return if this show is renewed for a season 15, u know it, at least I think so.
