Happy Friday TV fans! After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 6, I learned that it’s really never easy to give “the talk,” but Dean somehow manages to give the Cliff Notes version, while also reminding us about the importance of pie along the way. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In last night’s episode, “Optimism,” Dean agrees to take Jack out on a case and Jack learns about “courting.” Meanwhile, Sam and other Charlie work together in Tennessee and Sam tries to help her open up to him. My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 6 are:
“Nobody comes to the library anymore.”
So sad, right? In the beginning of the episode, we meet a young woman named Harper. Harper seems to have a natural glow of positivism around her and she absolutely adores surrounding herself with books. A girl after my own heart. Only this is Supernatural and we know that something is about to go horribly wrong. After agreeing to dinner, her future date named Winston is brutally attacked outside the library. It looks like someone will be on the case soon, but I have to say that I was immediately drawn in to this mystery.
“Maybe I’m allergic to sitting around doing nothing.”
Jack stumbles across this case and is eager to check it out. Even though Sam has expressed some concern about Jack going out on cases, Dean agrees to let him tag along. Jack is more than excited and explains that they can be “hunting buddies,” but clearly he has a lot to learn, as Dean reminds him not to call it that. It looks like there is a new dynamic duo on the case!
“So we got creative…cool.”
While Dean and Jack go off to check out the case, Sam is in Tennessee with other Charlie and they get into a sticky situation. During the episode, Sam tries to get other Charlie to open up to him, who doesn’t seem particularly thrilled to be out hunting, even though she is quite good at it. Charlie doesn’t seem like she wants to talk about anything initially, but does end up opening up to Sam about the love of her life. While it’s great to have Charlie back, I’m still having some issues connecting with her and other Bobby. It doesn’t seem like anyone on this show really stays dead unless they end up on another show like Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but I almost wish they would bring back someone like Crowley instead. Fast forward to Sam and other Charlie fighting some kind of bug creature and other Charlie gets some serious goo all over her, which lightens the mood a little bit.
“It’s a little game we play.”
After Dean and Jack try to help Harper, we learn that Harper actually comes from a line of Necromancers. Harper has raised her high school boyfriend from the dead and they get off on playing twisted games with innocent suitors. Unfortunately, Jack has just stepped into that role, but luckily he has Dean by his side to back him up.
“Pie is important.”
If you are looking to take away any lesson from this episode, it’s that “pie is important.” Just kidding. Jack has his first real encounter with love and panics when he realizes that he doesn’t know too much about “courting” or sex. Dean hilariously tells him that he will give him “the talk” later, but is upset when Jack refers to him as an old man. At the end of the episode, they are able to stop Harper’s dead boyfriend, but Harper makes it out and writes a stalker-like love letter to Jack. Only Jack has bigger things to worry about, as Dean discovers that Jack is coughing blood and ends up unconscious. What’s wrong with Jack? Will the Winchester brothers be able to save him? Also, are we going to eventually circle back to Nick? Either way, I enjoyed this episode more than episode 5 and I appreciated the unlikely partnership between Dean and Jack. Let’s hope that they can help him before it’s too late. 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.
