Happy Friday TV fans! After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 15, I learned that living in a picturesque town is not always as perfect as it may seem, but gee golly, I thought it was swell to see Sam Winchester in some glasses with a snazzy cardigan. Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In last night’s episode, “Peace of Mind,” Sam and Castiel team up to investigate a case in Arkansas, as Sam is in desperate need of a distraction. Meanwhile, Dean takes Jack on a field trip to go see our good pal, Donatello. My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 15 are:
“I feel different now…not like before.”
After all of the chaos from last week’s episode, Jack seems to be coping well, but he recognizes that he doesn’t feel the same as before. Jack has his wings back and may now be the most powerful being in the world, but killing Michael must have taken a toll on his soul. Castiel is extremely worried about this, as Jack may not realize how important it is to maintain one’s soul. What will be unleashed as a result? We’ll have to wait and see, but the setup should not be ignored here.
“Like a ripe melon on the sun.”
Sam cannot sleep and wants to take on another case, but changes it up by going with Castiel. I have to say that I absolutely love this duo together, as Sam and Castiel investigate a mysterious death involving Conrad’s head exploding. They learn that Conrad was from the town of Charming Acres, which has a Pleasantville type feel or as Castiel comments, that he feels like they are “stepping into a Saturday Evening Post,” which Castiel finds very soothing before bedtime. Good to know! Sam and Castiel end up at Harrington’s diner and are urged to try one of their milk shakes. I mean, who doesn’t love a good milkshake? Castiel tries to strike up a conversation about the murder, but is a little bit too graphic with his description of a head exploding, as he hilariously tries to soften the blow by explaining it was “like a ripe melon on the sun.” Love the effort, Cass!
“WWWD aka What Would the Winchesters Do?”
After chatting about Dean’s love for bacon, Dean takes Jack on a field trip to figure out how much of his soul is gone. Jack is spending quite a bit of time with his new pet snake so perhaps a little time outside might be good for him. Dean takes Jack to Donatello, understanding that Donatello will probably be able to sense whether or not Jack has a soul. Donatello has a good talk with Jack and explains that he feels nothing and that “it’s an absence of pity, of empathy, of humanity.” Jack still doesn’t really know how he feels and Donatello gives him some advice, explaining that he thinks about what Mr. Rogers would do when he is in doubt, which is the best man he knows. Jack has no idea who Mr. Rogers is, but he does determine that Sam and Dean are the best men he knows, which is beyond touching. However, all is not completely right, as Jack takes his empathy to another level, disintegrating his snake with his mind so that he can be in heaven with his previous owner, as Castiel watches from afar with concern.
“He has beautiful hair.”
Castiel recognizes that something goes wrong in Charming Acres, as Sam now thinks he is Justin from the town. He completes his look with glasses, a cardigan, and his hair slicked back. Castiel doesn’t know if Sam is under a spell or mind control, but he tries his best to get through to him, but Sam tells him that he is Justin Smith and warns Castiel to watch his mouth. Sam tells his new wife to grab Castiel’s hat so he can leave, but Castiel hilariously explains that he doesn’t wear a hat. Luckily, the mind control is broken and the mayor of the town is forced to reside in his own happy place within his mind. I absolutely loved the interactions between Sam and Castiel here, which gave us some fun humor to break up the drama going on with Jack. More of this please!
“This is my home. This is our home.”
When Sam and Castiel return home, Sam is annoyed that Castiel told Dean about the cardigan, but I mean he really did pull it off well. Sam says that the happiness there wasn’t real and confides in Dean that he keeps seeing Maggie and the others, as the guilt and grief overwhelms him at home. Sam recognizes that he can’t keep running away; however, but will time really fix everything? Stay tuned!
