Happy Friday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 16, I learned that sometimes facing your past is easier said than done…but some things do come back full circle.
Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.
In episode 16, “Drag Me Away (From You)” Sam and Dean travel out to a funeral for an old friend, giving us glimpses into their past and a new case to solve. Meanwhile, Billie takes a brief moment to check in with Dean about the fate of the world.
My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 16 are:
“Did you tell Sam yet?”
As Sam and Dean head out on a road trip to reunite with their old friend, Sam asks Dean about Castiel. Dean plays it cool, but we see a text from Castiel asking: “Did you tell Sam yet?”
This answers my question from last week’s episode where I was wondering if Castiel would tell the brothers the truth about Jack’s fate. It looks like he told Dean, but I’m guessing Dean wanted to be the one to tell his younger brother.
You can’t keep things from Sammy forever though…
“Why do you want us here?”
Apparently you can’t check into room 214 at Rooster’s Sunrise Motel without bumping into an undead monster or two…
We witness a disturbing encounter with a character named Travis, who ends up being murdered by some kind of spirit with a broken bottle. Ouch!
Travis’s sister, Caitlin, calls Sam and Dean, realizing that something is not quite right about what happened and says it wasn’t suicide. Perhaps this is the distraction they need. Oh and it gives us a chance to witness some flashbacks of Sam and Dean.

Caitlin and Dean actually have a really sweet history. I absolutely adored the vending machine scene and now I want to see if that trick actually works. Don’t get me into trouble Dean!
Dean tries to tell Caitlin that perhaps Travis really did take his own life, claiming he killed the evil being many years ago. Caitlin recognizes that Dean has changed, reminding him that he believed Travis right away so many years ago.
Perhaps Dean needs to take a moment to believe and remember who he used to be. He might need to embrace that glimmer of hope that he has pushed back down for so many years to win the ultimate battle.
“When he comes, there won’t be a moment to waste.”
Billie takes a quick opportunity to interrupt this flashback centered episode, revealing to Dean that all of the worlds are basically gone except for their own.
There will be no time to spare and there are only four episodes left, but is there another way to stop Chuck without losing Jack?
We’ll have to wait and see.
Thanks for the update, Billie!
“We don’t get a choice.”
After taking out the undead spirit for real this time by smashing the ring, Sam and Dean head out after saying goodbye to Caitlin. I have to say that I wouldn’t mind a Goonies inspired younger Sam and Dean prequel spin-off…just saying!
On the car ride home, Dean finally tells Sam about Jack and Sam is beyond upset.

The flashback seems even more important now since we witnessed a conversation about Sam wanting to go to college and Dean telling him that monster hunting was their true purpose. Sam is tired of Dean making choices for him.
There is clearly a divide between the two brothers and it really got me thinking about another theory. We know that Chuck and Amara represent a balance (light and dark).
Is it possible that Sam and Dean will somehow take their places and maintain balance in the world once again?
It’s a theory I have been pondering for a while, but we still have a few episodes left.
Stay tuned SPN Family!

I really didn’t like the sudden extreme anger from Sam at the end of this. Maybe I’m wrong or I’ve forgotten an underlying plot thread where there’s more tension between the brothers than I’m aware of. It just felt like Sam getting mad over Dean keeping a secret for a couple days at most was manufactured drama as we come into the home stretch. If I am missing something, let me know. I understand the reasoning behind his anger… but it feels like it was an overreaction for him to reject Dean’s apology and ride on in silence.
There’s been a lot of tension between them over the years but especially over what happened with Mary and their differences in opinions about Jack. I think Sam held on to a lot but broke when Dean made another decision to keep something from him involving Jack but I see what you mean. It is furthering my theory about this split or divide between them to restore the balance.
That makes sense. I guess I’m just thinking, with everything on the line at this point, Sam is level-headed enough not to allow something like this to create a new rift or increase an existing one. But who am I to talk about anger? I’m inconsolable when someone cuts me off in traffic.
