Constantine Season 1 Recap: Quid Pro Quo

In the latest episode of “Constantine” Season 1 Episode 10 “Quid Pro Quo,” it was revealed why Chas was somewhat immortal. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode kicked off with a hooded figure conjuring shadows that takes children from a rooftop, and it was freaky. Meanwhile, John was trying to convince Zed that she’s safe by placing more security around their hideout, but that didn’t convince Zed that much because it’s the Resurrection Crusade that’s after her and her father.


Then we got a flashback — Chas and Constantine just got out of a bar, and Chas was pretty drunk that Constantine had to cast a protective spell on Chas to ensure his safety when he drives back home. However, things got out of hand when the bar collapsed due to the pyrotechnics, and Chas tried to save everyone’s life. He died and lived again because of John’s protective spell.

Back in the present day, Zed and John headed to Brooklyn when they saw a Stigmata sign. When they met up with Chas, it turned out that the person in need was Chas’ daughter who was assaulted by the hooded figure, and her soul was not in her body. Of course, John would do anything for Chas even though he’s trying so hard to keep away from child cases like this with what happened at Newcastle.

John’s plan was to contact a medium to help them, and they headed to an Army surplus store to talk to Fennel, a medium who’s very paranoid. He tried to contact Geraldine’s soul and got to speak to her. Zed then used an item to track who’s behind this, and it led them to a railyard warehouse. John lifted the cloaking spell out of the place, and a mad scientist lair was revealed to them. Who’s behind this? Felix Faust of course. He did this because he needs John’s help, and they made a pact that John will take out the demon who’s getting his powers in exchange for Geraldine’s soul. Of course, a blood pact was in order.

Zed and John set up a trap for the demon, and they managed to put it away but John wasn’t able to bring it back to hell. And that wasn’t the deal. Faust made a new deal, but with Chas instead. The thing was, we thought Chas is immortal. Well, he kind of is, until after 47 deaths then it’s goodbye for good. Forty-seven is the number of the souls who died when the bar collapsed. In exchange for Chas’ life, John had to do it so now Chas has 47 souls = 47 lives before he dies. Faust wanted all those souls, and of course, Chas agreed. Chas let both of them explode, and only one would be able to get out of it alive. Luckily, it was Chas.

They were able to save Geraldine’s soul, and Chas and his daughter had a nice moment in the end.
