Happy Friday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 9, we learned that hope can be extremely powerful, but when you break that last remaining glimmer, is it truly gone forever?
Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.
In last night’s episode, “The Trap,” Chuck kidnaps Sam and Eileen and is determined to sever his connection with Sam once and for all. Meanwhile, Dean and Castiel head to Purgatory to find the Leviathan Blossom, running into some threats along the way.
My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 9 are:
“All good things must come to an end.”
Sam wakes up to discover that Chuck is holding him and Eileen captive in a casino. Chuck reminds Sam that they are still connected, which is keeping him trapped and weak. Sam tries to stay strong, as Chuck begins to reveal his plan, hoping that Dean and Castiel can get to them before it’s too late.
“That’s the way we’ll save Sam and that’s the way we’ll save the world.”
Wise words indeed, Castiel. After Eileen tries to call for help, Dean wants to rush in to save Sam, but Castiel reminds him not to be stupid. He explains that they only have a small window to retrieve the Leviathan Blossom from Purgatory, which will save Sam and the rest of the world.
Dean will do anything to save his brother, but Castiel continues to be the voice of reason here, recognizing that sometimes sacrifice is necessary for the good of the world.
“This is gonna hurt her as much as it hurts you.”
As Chuck begins to reveal his plan, we learn that he used Eileen to spy on the Winchesters. He forces Eileen to start cutting away at Sam’s wound against her will and by the end of the episode, Eileen is ready to part ways with Sam, not sure if anything is real.
However, Sam gives her a swoon-worthy kiss and tells her that it is real, but it looks like Eileen may be safer away from Sam right now until he is off Chuck’s radar.
“You don’t have to say it.”
After Dean and Castiel run into some threats in Purgatory and get separated, Dean takes a moment to himself to admit that he was wrong and to tell Castiel that he forgives him. Later when they are reunited, Castiel tells him that he doesn’t have to say anything and that he heard his prayer, providing us with a heartwarming Destiel moment for sure!
“I will make it better.”
Chuck gives Sam the opportunity to see the future, as we get several glimpses from Sam’s perspective. In this future world, all of their friends are dead or gone except for Jody and other Bobby, but this future is dark and hopeless, as even Dean begins to give up.
The watch Sam holds stops on December 9th 2022, as Chuck explains that this is the end of the line. Sam watches in horror as he and Dean are turned into vampires and killed by their friend, but he tells Chuck that there has to be another way to make it better.
Chuck reminds Sam that without him, the monsters will devour the world and take over, giving Sam something to really think about. When Dean and Castiel show up to save the day, Sam cannot go through with smashing the Leviathan Blossom, recognizing that he has to protect the world.
Chuck is ultimately set free by breaking Sam’s hope, so now we have that to worry about that. Later on, Dean reminds him that they will not give up and they will find another way, as we are left with a huge cliffhanger at the end, flashing to Jack and Billie in The Empty.
Is Jack somehow the loophole to stop Chuck’s plan for good? Can Sam and Dean re-write Chuck’s story or are they destined to repeat the memories of other Sams and Deans from alternate realities?
I’m confident that the Winchester brothers will be able to write their own stories, as we inch closer and closer to the end of our beloved series, but will it end the way we expect?
Stay tuned SPN family!
