Happy Friday TV fans! After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 2, Castiel reminded us that the past is not as important as the future and where you’re going. While he has a valid point, it’s difficult to know where you are going when you don’t really understand where you came from. So do you seek out answers or do you keep moving straight ahead? Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In last night’s episode, “Gods and Monsters,” Dean/Michael leaves a trail of corpses in Duluth to lure Sam in. Meanwhile, Jack wants to know more about where he comes from, Castiel cannot comprehend a world without Dean, and Nick’s human memories torment him. My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 2 are:
“Maybe these people aren’t people.”
During the episode, Sam, Mary, and other realm Bobby dust off their FBI suits and head off to Duluth to investigate the string of murders they have read about. Other realm Bobby needs to work on his FBI lingo, but it seems like they are blending in well enough for now. They soon discover that Dean/Michael has actually been killing vampires and track down a female vampire who somehow escaped for more information. She tells them that it’s like Dean/Michael was experimenting on them, but why? Later on, Dean/Michael lures in a werewolf and requests an audience with her master, interested in their way of life. Dean/Michael is fascinated that they “kill to live” and further explains that there is “a purity in that.” He offers the werewolves the opportunity to “enhance their talents,” but what does this entail exactly? Is Michael trying to create a whole new breed of supernatural monsters to take over the world? What else is he after?
“I own you so hang on and enjoy the ride.”
Michael seems to be enjoying walking around as Dean Winchester and he has really updated Dean’s wardrobe. First the newsboy cap and now a polished tux, which really makes Dean look even more charming…if that were at all possible. When Michael checks out his attire in the mirror, Dean tries to fight back within his reflection, but Michael reminds him that he owns him. At least Dean is not sitting by quietly in the passenger seat while Michael takes the wheel.
“All I can see is the supreme agent of evil.”
When Sam takes off for Duluth, he asks Castiel to stay behind so that Michael cannot detect him. Castiel agrees, but realizes that he will pretty much be “babysitting” Jack and Nick. Sam explains that it’s not babysitting, but Castiel hilariously points out, “Only in the sense that they are not infants.” Jack has lost his grace and Nick is a complete mess, but Sam thinks that Nick deserves a real chance. When Castiel speaks with Nick, Nick wants answers about why he allowed Lucifer to occupy his body. Castiel explains that “you were in a lot of pain and Lucifer exploited it.” He further reminds Nick that he tragically lost his family, who were brutally murdered, and Lucifer took full advantage of Nick’s grief in this moment. All of the horrible memories start to come crashing back and they seem to be too much for Nick to handle. Nick has a few moments where it almost seems like he is not in control of his body so it makes me wonder if any part of Lucifer stayed behind? Nick later tells Castiel that he is no different than Lucifer, but Castiel takes a real moment to tell him that he regrets what he did to Jimmy Novak and his family. Castiel has developed so much over the years and truly understands what it means to have regrets and guilt. Later on, Nick tries to track down leads about the killing of his family and ends up taking a hammer to an eye witness, violently killing him. Nick is out of control and has taken things to the next level. Is he acting out on his own or has Lucifer permanently destroyed any goodness within him?
“I hope someday to have a little of her courage and purpose.”
While “babysitting,” Castiel has better luck with Jack, who is still feeling lost and out of place without his grace. His research tells us that his grace can come back within a month or within a century, which means that it might be quite a while for him. Castiel explains that he understands what Jack is going through and further tells him that Sam and Dean spent years and years of failing and winning, which allowed them to develop over the years into the hunters they have now become. He tells Jack that patience and persistence are skills too and reminds him that the past is not as important as the future. Jack still has a desire to find out where he comes from and visits his grandparents. Kelly’s parents have no idea that she is dead and Jack doesn’t have the heart to tell them. They think that Jack was a former intern of Kelly’s, but they are so happy to share some memories with him and even take out an old photo album for him to see. In a touching moment, Jack shares that Kelly did have the baby and that she “made him feel safe and wanted.” His grandparents even comment that Jack kind of looks like their daughter and they ask him to please tell her how much they love and miss her. This moment was truly important for Jack because there is so much of his mother’s goodness within him. He recognizes that his path will not be an easy one, but he is hoping to make his mother proud and I think that he is absolutely taking a step in the right direction.
After watching Supernatural for so many years, it’s become routine for Sam or Dean to wind up somewhere else at the end of a season, only to then safely return by episode 2 or 3 of the following one. Season 14 is no different, as Dean returns to Sam without Michael at the end of the episode. Dean explains that he just left, but Sam asks why and he has a point. Michael has been making a lot of progress using Dean as his vessel, so why would he choose to abandon him now? We know that he has spoken with the werewolf leader and has pretty much dominated the vampires, so what has changed? When Sam, Mary, and other realm Bobby try to fight off the monsters, they realize that traditional methods for killing them are not working. Has Michael already created his new breed of monsters? If so, why abandon Dean now? Michael is extremely intelligent and he seems to plan out every move with calculated precision. Is this a part of his plan? We’ll have to wait to find out, but I’m happy to have Dean back safe and sound for now. Stay tuned!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist. Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest. She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.
