The South Sydney star`s death and his reporter`s relationship have been made public for weeks, during which his second child, William Mark Burgess, was born on December 9. In canonical season 3 (but still not done), it is revealed that John is in fact Sam`s father, but could not tell anyone as part of the agreement he made to become human. In early 2014, the Englishman met journalist Phoebe Hooke at a concert by the late Swedish musician Avicii. In September of this year, they made their public debut as a couple at the Dally M Awards. Smooth-talking and debonair, known as “Jerry Belvedere” for those who have no idea of his true identity, the Devil (played by Ray Wise) claims the rights to Sam`s soul through an agreement he made with Sam`s parents before Sam was even born. Although he knows how everything ends (“God wins”), he is determined to do as much as possible to resist God to the end. He also convinces Sam that he (Sam) is doing good by building the world of evil escaped souls. Apart from Sam, Morgan, Cady and Andi, the devil does not appear at least once in front of any of Sam`s friends face-to-face, even though the devil knows everything about Sock and Ben, and they know that they know Sam`s secret job as a harvester for the devil. In the season 2 finale, Andi sells his soul to the devil to free Sam from his own market.
The Reapers are beings charged by the devil to stop souls that have escaped the depths of hell. Sam became one of the first in the series. The word was first used in the episode “Acid Queen”, implying that there may be others like him with a similar commitment (or difficult situation). At the moment, it is not clear how many reapers there are, or if all are even human. Sam does not like this status, but begins to live with this fate, even if he shows no surprise as to his statement. The demon Steve clearly shows that Sam is perhaps the only person on Earth with whom the devil speaks face to face, which arouses the mistrust of Sam and his friends. This proposal will be refuted later that the devil introduces Morgan, a young man whom the devil claims to be his son. Later, Sam wakes up in a private room in Capital Knot City, where he is instructed by Deadman to deliver morphine to his dying mother, President Bridget Strand, for a final farewell moment with the woman who raised him. In the isolation of Capital Knot City Ward, Bridget tries in vain to convince Sam to follow in Amelie`s footsteps on a Western expedition to reconnect America, but Sam shows no interest in America`s future.
