thenthersthat: This gives me a new meta reading. The flames for Crowley/Az and the bath for Aziraphale/Cr. Fire and water are both cleansing rituals. They were both baptized in a way. Ridding themselves of self-loathing, guilt, delusions about their bosses, their own purpose and all that angst to come away - all washed/burned away with new lives and free will of their own.
