Happy Friday TV fans! After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 10, I realized that a serious case of déjà vu may not be that bad, but what happens when that loop continues to repeat over and over again until you just can’t take it anymore? Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In last night’s episode, “Nihilism,” Sam and Castiel enter Dean’s mind to try and help save him before Michael suppresses him for good. Meanwhile, Michael reveals his end game and Jack taps into something powerful and dangerous. My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 10 mid-season premiere are:
“Dean’s not home right now. Please leave a message…”
In this episode, Michael has taken control over Dean once again and the dapper wardrobe re-emerges as well. Even though Michael looks polished and charming as Dean on the outside, he is not playing nice and is ready to unleash his monster army on the world. Michael even threatens Sam and tells him, “The last thing you’ll see is this pretty smile as I rip you apart.” While I agree that it is a lovely smile indeed, Michael is ready to destroy the world, using Dean as his vessel of choice, but will Sam be able to save Dean before it’s too late?
“This world…nothing but failed drafts.”
So, the writer in me was really digging Michael’s comparison here, but I’m not sure that a bunch of failed drafts mean that we need to wipe the slate clean entirely, but I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Either way, in this moment, Michael finally reveals a little bit about his end game, which involves tracking down Chuck/God and killing him. I guess it’s important to have goals, but it seems like Michael is taking things a little bit too personally, but we’ll have to wait and see how this unfolds.
“I didn’t know he could still do that angel stuff.”
That angel stuff indeed, Maggie, as Jack takes out the monsters that begin attacking the hunters as if it were no big deal. Now that Jack has given up a part of his soul, there are unforeseen consequences lurking here. Castiel warns Jack that he could lose himself if he continues to tap into this power. Jack seems willing to listen to Castiel here, but there is some definite foreshadowing going on for sure.
So, the Winchester brothers definitely brought back some SPN nostalgia for us in this episode. In Dean’s mind or loop, he is running his bar, “Rocky’s Bar,” with the help of Pamela. Pamela was blinded and died earlier on Supernatural, but it’s always fun to see a familiar face, even if it’s in some kind of wacky time loop. Nice to see you, Pamela! When Sam and Castiel enter Dean’s mind, they realize that Dean is being distracted by a loop of contentment. It doesn’t seem like they will have any luck getting through to Dean, but Sam is not ready to lose hope and simply says, “Poughkeepsie.” Sure, it’s a town in New York, but Supernatural fans will also remember that this is a code word that Sam and Dean use, basically meaning, “drop everything and run.” The code word works like a charm and Dean’s memories come rushing back to him. Dean realizes that he has the power in his mind and is able to trap Michael for now, but it’s only a matter of time before Michael finds a way to break free.
“What am I supposed to do with this?”
It seems like everything is back to normal for now, only Billie makes a special guest appearance to shake things up. Billie has been warning Sam and Dean for quite some time now, but Dean has really been making things difficult by jumping from world to world, which has consequences. Billie explains that Dean used to have endless books filled with possible ways that he could die. However, his actions have now led to them all having the same ending, involving Michael using Dean to end the world. Only there is one other possible ending, which is not revealed to us just yet. Based on Dean’s reaction, I’m guessing that it must involve sacrificing someone he truly loves. Does this mean Sam or Castiel or Jack? I’m not sure, but the possibilities could be endless here. I would love to hear some of your theories on what you think this alternate ending says. 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.
