# Broadcast Date[1] Episode Title Synopsis
1 2020-01-15 "In the Beginning" Demon Crowley is tasked with delivering the Antichrist, but he and his old friend Aziraphale the angel agree to try and influence him to be a normal boy, perhaps avoiding the apocalypse. Too late they realise they've been influencing the wrong boy, thanks to a mix-up at the birth; the real antichrist, Adam, has no idea who he is, but accepts his gift of a hellhound and unknowingly starts the countdown to Armageddon.
2 2020-01-22 "The Book" Crowley and Aziraphale look for the antichrist, but reach a dead end. A messenger starts to contact the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Anathema Device, descendent of prophetic witch Agnes Nutter, arrives in Tadfield, Adam's home; she accidentally leaves Agnes' book with Crowley, who reads it and realises it can help them find the antichrist.
3 2020-01-29 "Hard Times" After a friendship lasting thousands of years, Aziraphale and Crowley fight and end their "arrangement". Adam meets Anathema and reads her magazines about the various threats to the world, and his powers begin to awaken.
4 2020-02-05 "Saturday Morning Funtime" Adam's power grows and both Crowley and Aziraphale are found out by their superiors. Crowley goes on the run, while Aziraphale is accidentally banished to Heaven by witch-finder Shadwell, who also accidentally burns down Aziraphale's bookshop. The Horsemen assemble.
5 2020-02-12 "The Doomsday Option" Armageddon begins, with everyone converging at a nuclear base near Tadfield: Adam and his friends, the Horsemen, Crowley and Aziraphale (who is inhabiting the body of Madame Tracy, a medium and Shadwell's landlady), and Anathema and Newt, Shadwell's apprentice, who have begun a relationship foretold by Agnes.
6 2020-02-19 "The Very Last Day of the Rest of Their Lives" In a final showdown, Adam refuses to start Armageddon and defies his true father. His friends defeat the Horsemen, and Newt's incredible facility to ruin technology aborts the launch sequence of the nuclear missiles. Heaven and Hell stand down when challenged by Aziraphale and Crowley, but the pair are both deemed traitors; they foil their executions by secretly swapping places, and are left alone...for now. Adam uses the last of his fading powers to sneak out his garden for an adventure with Dog.
