Happy Friday TV fans! After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 13 episode 12 last night, you may want to think twice about this upcoming Valentine’s day. Be careful what or who you wish for or you may wind up under a love spell that leads to a pretty gruesome death. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In last night’s episode, “Various & Sundry Villains,” we meet the magical Plum Sisters who will stop at nothing to return their mother to the living. Rowena is back and is claiming to have changed from wicked to good, looking to score some help from the Winchester brothers. Meanwhile, Castiel and Lucifer try out being cell-mates, as Lucifer attempts to tap into his inner rage to unleash his power. My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 13 episode 12 are:
Meet Jamie & Jenny Plum.
“Always look your best. Never get attached to a man. And always make the death look non-magical so you don’t attract hunters.” Seems like good advice until the witch sisters, Jamie and Jenny beat their poor victim, Dale to death with a sledge hammer. New witches are in town which is never a good sign and they have their sights set on Dean Winchester to obtain the Black Grimoire. While the sisters are dangerous, they bring the fun as well, reminding us of films like “The Craft.” Sure their powers come from evil, but one can’t help being slightly sympathetic that they just want to reunite their family.
Rowena is back.
After Lucifer killed Rowena, fans were hoping that this wouldn’t be the last of our favorite witch. Rowena reveals that she had cast a sort of get out of death free spell which had its fair share of consequences, but nevertheless she is back among the living once again. Rowena approaches the Winchester brothers and offers to help them in exchange for a spell in the Black Grimoire. She claims it is only for protection, but is clearly very invested in obtaining more power. While Sam and Dean know better than to openly trust Rowena, they don’t really have much of a choice when the Plum Sisters successfully steal the book.
“There is no I in team Castiel.”
Castiel and Lucifer are cell-mates and Cas is getting sick and tired of listening to Lucifer whine about how he is drained of power. Refusing to let him tap into his own soul, Castiel tries pushing Lucifer to the limits by talking about how good Jack is and how he loves movies where the hero saves the day. Lucifer is horrified by this revelation and he quickly realizes that his rage is a good motivator for power. After Lucifer and Castiel escape, Castiel confronts Lucifer and tells him “this is me learning from my mistakes.” Castiel is not messing around and not even Lucifer will be able to walk all over him. Go Cas!
The Plum Sisters cast a love spell on Dean.
Dean comically gets hit with the love spell and is now head over heels for Jamie. The lovey dovey music combined with his stars in the eyes like glow is hilarious. Dean practically skips back home and confides to Sam about his love for Jamie. He even begins making room for her to move in. Sam immediately sees the problem here and tries to get Dean to see reason. Dean says “Am I alright? I’m in love!” Sam tries to stop Dean but he is knocked out by his brother in the process. Dean gives Jamie the Black Grimoire and just when he is about to hit him with a hammer, Sam saves the day. Luckily for Dean, Sam didn’t hold a grudge and was able to get there in the nick of time.
Sam and Rowena talk about inner demons.
Rowena admits to Sam that she feels scared and helpless all the time because she saw Lucifer’s true face and what she saw has been burned into her memory, constantly scratching at the surface. Sam explains that he also saw Lucifer’s true face and knows exactly what she is going through. He lets Rowena know that the scared feeling never really goes away and that’s important to find other things to focus on. Sam tries to distract himself by trying to help save his mother and Jack, but now that they are out of reach in another dimension, he is feeling the darkness pulling him down further and further. After Rowena’s “triple-cross” ends in shooting a “Zombie Mom” in the head and turning the Plum Sisters on each other for a gruesome death, Sam agrees to give her a page from the book to Dean’s disappointment. Has Sam made the right call? Will Rowena tap into too much power and become a threat worse than Lucifer? Perhaps, but I’m certain that Sam and Dean will not be too far behind to put a stop to it.
I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Supernatural below. Happy viewing!
