Thank You “Supernatural.” Season 15 episode 20 Series Finale: “Carry On”

Happy Friday TV fans! Well this is it. 15 years of watching the Winchester brothers hunt monsters and the end is finally here. But was it everything you wanted in a series finale? After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 20, the show returned to its roots and reminded us that in the end…it’s all about family. 

Please note MAJOR SPOILERS are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 20, “Carry On,” Sam and Dean cope with life after the defeat of Chuck. Their lives have become somewhat routine, but there is a glimmer of potential when a new case gets thrown their way.

For today, I’m not going to rank my top moments from the episode. Rather, I want to simply reflect on what I witnessed and thank the Winchester brothers for having such an impact on me for 15 long years.

So I knew that the series finale would feel different. The writers hinted that it would give fans of a feeling of nostalgia and I think that it did achieve that along the way. We got to see Dean line up to try every pie imaginable at a festival and even Sammy had some fun as well.

The episodes of SPN that have always done well were the weekly ones that took a break from the heavy plot points. The ones that just focus on Sam and Dean taking Baby out for a ride to hunt some monsters and save some people along the way.

Well, that’s what we got, but it took an unexpected turn…

After tracking down a nest to help two boys in need, Dean realizes that something has stabbed his back and that he is fading fast. He gets the chance to tell Sam everything he needs to before he dies, which was heart-wrenching to hear…especially when Sam told him that it was okay and that he could go, honoring Dean’s request.

While this was incredibly moving and well portrayed by both actors, I kept sitting there wondering if this was all some kind of cruel joke. Is this really how we want to watch Dean die? Honestly, I thought he deserved much better than this. I get what the writers did. They wanted Dean to die on a routine hunt instead of making it some kind of grand gesture like with Castiel, but really…

Dean 1

Sam is left behind with Dean’s dog (so glad he was in the final episode) and he gives him a hunter’s funeral. We get a montage with a heavy Kansas soundtrack and watch Sam carry on with his own life without Dean. He still fights the good fight, but he also has a child named Dean and a wife…who is not Eileen?! Seriously…what is going on?

Meanwhile, Dean is up in heaven and it made perfect sense to have Bobby as his guide. We learn that heaven is quite different now thanks to Jack and Castiel.

OK…so how about we see Jack and Castiel? Mary…John…Crowley…hello, anyone?!

Sam lives out his life and we have to witness his sad excuse for a wig when he walks in the garage to see Baby again. When he is on life support, his own son tells him that it is okay and he can go, bringing things full circle.

Dean has been riding around in heaven and when he gets to the bridge, he turns around and says, “Hey Sammy.”

This was probably the only brilliant moment of the episode for me. In the end, the show has always been about the love that these two brothers have for one another and I appreciated this reunion at the end.

However, are we really going to leave Castiel out in the cold?

This really got me thinking about other disappointing series finales of brilliant shows. The 100, Game of Thrones, and Dexter come to mind. It may come down to personal preference and I am sure a lot of fans did enjoy the episode, but I guess I just thought we were going to witness something truly beautiful and epic.

Don’t get me wrong…the intention was there. I saw it and I thought the ending shot was truly wonderful. However, the execution in so many parts was lacking and this was an issue for me.

I started to think about how the show could have ended and even the season finale episode would have worked better. You could have just had Sam and Dean riding off into the sunset to continue fighting the good fight, free to write their own stories.

Or, you could have ended the show with the 300th episode, having the Winchester family sit down for supper.

I just don’t know how I feel about this, but I am not going to let it taint my overall opinion of this show. When I think about Supernatural, it has a special place in my heart and it always will.

This show has lasted so long because of the love between these brothers and I am forever grateful for the laughs, tears, and memories along the way.

Thank you, Supernatural. You will be missed…but never forgotten.

Carry on…

 

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 15 episode 19: “Inherit the Earth”

Happy Saturday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 19, I learned that “when people have to be their best, they can be…and that’s what they’ll believe in.”

Please note MAJOR SPOILERS are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 19, “Inherit the Earth,” Sam, Dean, and Jack fear that they may be the only people left on earth. Meanwhile, some more frenemies show up to make things even more complicated.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 19 are:

5

“We’ll give you what you want.”

After Sam, Dean, and Jack quickly cope with the fact that everyone is gone…including Castiel, they realize that they may be out of options. We get a glimmer of hope when Dean finds an adorable dog, but of course Chuck makes him vanish as well.

Supernatural season 15 episode 19 Dean with Dog

Come on, Chuck!

Sam and Dean basically surrender to Chuck and tell him that they will do whatever he wants if he just puts everything back to the way it was.

Only Chuck doesn’t seem too interested and tells them that he likes this story now.

Let’s hope they can get Chuck’s death book open…

4

“Wow…way to treat a pal!”

We quickly find out that Sam, Dean, and Jack aren’t the only beings left on earth as Michael shows up with perfect timing to help them out. Michael is in Adam’s body and tells them that he vanished too, but can we really trust him at this point?

Meanwhile, Dean gets a phone call from Castiel and we hear his voice, but we know that it’s not Cass…and in walks another familiar face…Lucifer.

Lucifer is one of the best villains on any show and I’m always happy to see him, but we know that he definitely has some tricks up his sleeve.

Supernatural Lucifer

After crowning a new reaper as death, they are able to get the book open, but Lucifer kills her before she can read the words out loud and double crosses them, explaining that Chuck is the one that pulled him off the bench in the first place.

We get this ultimate power struggle between Michael and Lucifer as Sam and Dean come up with a plan to create some kind of a ritual circle to get the book open.

3

“That’s not who we are…”

Chuck shows up during the ritual and starts beating the crap out of Sam and Dean, claiming he is cancelling their show.

Only the Winchester brothers are not out of complete luck, as they planned this from the start. They reveal that they knew Michael would double cross them and inform Chuck, explaining that after Jack returned from The Empty, he became some kind of power sucking vacuum.

Supernatural Jack season 15 episode 19

Images courtesy of The CW

That explains what we saw in last week’s episode with plants and living things basically disintegrating at Jack’s touch.

Jack absorbed the power from Lucifer, Michael, and even Chuck himself when he started beating on Sam and Dean, which now makes him powerful enough to stop Chuck once and for all.

Chuck seems overly entertained and shocked by this ending, excited to find out who will end his life, but Sam and Dean tell him that’s not who they are. Chuck will live out his life as a mortal and die…lost and forgotten.

Great twist, guys!

2

“He got us back online.”

With this act, we learn that Jack is basically the new God, which I thought was fitting in a lot of ways. I was actually really sad when Dean asked him to come back home, realizing that Jack would not be a direct part of this family anymore, but we know that he will always be present.

But I do have some questions. Jack was able to restore the world and we even see the dog return, but what about Castiel?

Does he have the power to bring him back? There are some other characters that still haven’t shown up in a while either. I’m hoping we get to see both Rowena and Crowley in the series finale, but I’m honestly not sure.

This episode was basically a season finale, but we still need to wrap things up. I’m thinking the series finale is going to bring us back to the very beginning, providing fans with the SPN nostalgia we know and love.

1

“Finally free…”

At the very end of the episode, Sam and Dean discuss what happened and realize that they are finally free to write their own story. They take a moment to remember everyone they have lost and we even get these entertaining flashback clips of some of our past favorite characters over the seasons.

In a lot of ways, this episode felt like the end, but I still want one more episode.

Stay tuned SPN Family! The series finale of Supernatural airs next week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 15 episode 18: “Despair”

Happy Friday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 18, I witnessed one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking episodes on television of all time and I’m still not even sure if I’m ready to talk about it…

Please note MAJOR SPOILERS are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 18, “Despair,” Jack’s life hangs in the balance as Sam, Dean, and Castiel try to figure out a way to stop Billie from reaping their friends. Meanwhile, some old friends return and an earth-shattering choice is made.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 18 are:

5

“What do we do?”

The beginning of the episode starts off exactly where we left off. Chuck is gone for now and Jack is ready to explode…literally. Dean tells Jack they are not giving up on him, showing just how much he truly cares about him while Billie shows up with perfect timing.

SPN Season 15 episode 18

Billie explains that everything was doomed because of the Winchester brothers and sends Jack to The Empty so that the explosion can be somewhat useful. We quickly find out that Jack is still alive, but now everyone has a new catastrophic problem to deal with…

4

“I didn’t know who else to call…”

Other Charlie makes an appearance in this episode and is enjoying some breakfast when her girlfriend vanishes right in front of her almost in Avengers: Infinity War style.

Charlie calls Sam and Dean and asks them why she was taken and not her, which is a very good question. Sam and Dean realize that Billie will be going after anyone who has ever been resurrected or lived in another world, which puts other Bobby and Eileen in immediate danger.

SPN Season 15 episode 18 Charlie

Sam tries to reach Eileen by text as they head her way, but she also vanishes and Sam’s reaction was heartbreaking, but he recognizes that he needs to temporarily push his grief aside to help everyone else.

So sorry, Sammy!

3

“We care about you because you’re you.”

Jack begins to feel useless, but Castiel presents us with another fatherly motivational speech, reminding him that they don’t care about him because he is some kind of weapon. They care about Jack because he is family and I thought this was really important for Jack to hear right now.

There’s already a lot of emotions stirring in this episode for sure.

2

“Let’s go reap a reaper.”

Sam and Dean split up to deal with Billie. Castiel says that he will go with Dean and Jack and Sam call up Donna to get everyone to a safe house of sorts, but things start to go horribly wrong.

Dean is able to fatally wound Billie, but she is not going to die without taking Dean with her. Even though Billie is the immediate threat, she does tell them that she is not the one going after their friends, suggesting it is Chuck cleaning up the world.

SPN Season 15 episode 18 Billie

Poor Sam and Jack witness everyone they care about vanish before their eyes and I have to say that I was not prepared for the Donna one. 

Meanwhile, Dean and Castiel try to hold off Billie, but time is running out and this leaves Castiel with the inevitable option we knew was coming…

1

“You changed me, Dean.”

Deep breath…here we go. I knew this moment was going to happen. I’ve predicted it ever since I first heard Castiel make that deal with The Empty that we all wanted to just disappear into the void and I know many of you did too, but that didn’t make this moment any less heartbreaking.

SPN Season 15 episode 18 Destiel

Images courtesy of The CW

I’ve talked a lot before about some of my favorite characters on television and the ones that truly resonate with me are the ones with the biggest transformations. Characters like Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cole Turner on Charmed, Olivia Blake on The 100 and Castiel absolutely come to mind. And the reason why is because of their journey.

Castiel’s journey on SPN is one of the most important ones because he never really understood humanity. Sure, he didn’t get the references and he had us laughing until our sides hurt when he learned some moves from the pizza man, but Castiel’s gradual growth toward humanity has been inspiring and moving to watch.

And at the very center of that journey is…Dean. I have really witnessed a change in Castiel with Jack, but I thought it was the right move to have everything come back full circle with Dean.

Castiel recognizes that Dean is going to die, but he has one last trick up his sleeve. If he experiences “true happiness,” the Empty will come to claim him for good, but it will also be enough to absorb and stop Billie, which would save Dean.

Castiel’s moment of true happiness is telling Dean that he loves him, which may have been one of the most brilliant moments I have ever witnessed on television. Misha Collins had me sobbing my eyes out. The moment was inevitable in a lot of ways, but I also can’t ignore the beautiful simplicity of the power behind the words of love. A love so deep that you feel it with every ounce of your body and soul even though you know that you may never hear the words said back to you.

Castiel’s sacrifice was enough to save Dean, as he was left alone to contemplate what had just happened.

Honestly, I don’t even know if I have really come to terms with it yet, but I want to celebrate the character of Castiel and I respect the writers of SPN so much for allowing Destiel shippers this epic moment.

Only two episodes left…

Carry on until then.

Stay tuned SPN family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 15 episode 17: “Unity”

Happy Saturday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 17, I remembered that “we don’t give up on family.”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 17, “Unity,” Sam and Dean continue to view things differently on how to ultimately take down Chuck. Meanwhile, Castiel helps Sam discover the truth while Dean and Jack have a heart-to-heart chat.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 17 are:

5

“You ever get tired of saying stuff like that?”

Sam and Dean are still having some issues when it comes to Jack’s involvement in their plan. Dean continues to remind Sam that this is the only way, but Sam is not going to stay quiet on this one.

Sam tells Dean that he is not going with them, but Dean loses his temper and reminds him that Jack is not part of their family. Of course Jack overhears, which was heartbreaking to see, but it looks like Jack is ready to continue with his sacrifice to help save the world anyway.

4

“True balance.”

Meanwhile, Amara agrees to Dean’s terms, reminding him that they will always help each other. Amara and Chuck meet up and she tries to get him to remember why he loved this world in the first place.

Supernatural season 15 episode 17 3

Chuck initially seems pleased by his fans, but the novelty wears off pretty quickly. Amara is not discouraged; however, as she takes him to the bunker and ends up trapping him there.

She tells Chuck that she can hold him long enough, but we know that Chuck always has something else up his sleeve…

3

“I need to say thank you.”

After Dean and Jack track down Adam and Jack passes his test with flying colors, he has what they need to complete the ritual. Once Jack absorbs it, he will not be able to stop it so they better be ready to go…

Supernatural season 15 episode 17 1

Images courtesy of The CW

On the car ride back, Dean admits to his mistake from earlier and tells Jack that he wants to thank him for everything he is doing. He is giving him and Sam a real chance to have a normal life and I was glad that Dean finally let his wall down for just a moment to let Jack know this.

Whether Dean wants to admit it or not, Jack is their family, but maybe he doesn’t see it right now.

I think that’s all about to change…

2

“We have to stop it.”

Sam and Castiel work together, hoping that there is some other way so that they can save Jack. They know they need to contact Billie, but Sam can’t die to do so. Of course, they now remember that there is a key hidden in the bunker and after some investigating, they find it.

Supernatural season 15 episode 17 2

Images courtesy of The CW

I thought it was actually really cool when Sam opened up the door in the wall, which could almost be its own separate adventure for him and Castiel.

When Sam walks through, he encounters Meg…or The Empty posing as Meg. Sam learns that this is all a power play and that Billie wants to take Chuck’s place so that she can return things to where they belong. But this would mean that old friends would die, demons would go back to hell and so on.

Always good to see you Meg!

1

“You always have a choice.”

Jack and Dean arrive with perfect timing, but Sam tries to get him to stop and listen to reason. Dean tells him that he has to stop Chuck, but Sam delivers an extremely touching speech once again.

Dean finally comes to his senses, but they may be too late. Amara learns the truth about Dean’s intentions and agrees to let Chuck consume her…or join with him…not too clear on that. Basically it looks like Chuck has shattered the balance and now contains both of their entities.

He blows open the door and tells the brothers that this was his plan all along, proving to constantly be one step ahead of our favorite heroes.

Chuck tells Sam and Dean to have fun watching Jack die before he disappears, leaving Jack ready to explode…talk about a cliffhanger.

Only three episodes left!

Stay tuned SPN Family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 15 episode 16: “Drag Me Away (From You)”

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:

5

“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…

4

“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.

Supernatural Young Dean Season 15 Episode 16 The CW

3

“You’ve changed…”

Supernatural season 15 episode 16 The CW 2

Images courtesy of The CW

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.

2

“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!

1

“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.

Supernatural season 15 episode 16 3

Images courtesy of The CW

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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 15 episode 15: “Gimme Shelter”

Happy Sunday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 15, I learned that a “highway to heaven but like with murder” spin-off might not be such a bad idea after all.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 15, “Gimme Shelter” Castiel and Jack team up to investigate a case while Sam and Dean take a road trip to Atlantic City to find Amara.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 15 are:

5

“Can we wear matching ties?”

Castiel doesn’t seem initially thrilled to be teamed up with Jack, but Jack’s excitement is contagious. While investigating some religious deaths at a shelter, Jack puts his skills to the test and even shows off that he “graduated from CSI.”

Supernatural Season 15 episode 15 Jack and Castiel

The humor was needed here to break up some of the heavy moments we have been getting and we even get a Baby Yoda reference thrown in!

More please!

4

“We knew there was gonna be a catch.”

It’s not all fun and games as Sam and Dean take a moment to catch up on their quest during the car ride. They know that they are the messengers, but they will need to trick Amara in order for their plan to work.

We get a big discussion about the balance of things and know that Amara and Chuck represent light and darkness. Both will need to be stopped, but all of this talk of splitting into two had me thinking about the ultimate fate of the Winchesters as well…

We’ll have to see how this plays out.

3

“I do know what blind faith is.”

I have to admit that Castiel truly touched me in this episode. I’ve talked before about the transformation of Castiel’s character over the seasons and we get another real glimpse of it in this episode when Castiel stands before the group at the shelter to talk about his spiritual journey.

Supernatural season 15 episode 15 Castiel

Images courtesy of The CW

Castiel explains that he used to just follow orders, but he changed and found a family and became a father. He rediscovered his faith and also learned about his true purpose. This was probably one of the most vulnerable and real moments I have ever witnessed for Castiel and it got me wondering again about how The Empty said Castiel would be taken when he experiences that moment of true bliss.

Fatherhood is clearly the key and I’m starting to wonder if Castiel will somehow take Jack’s place and sacrifice himself…

2

“Why did you bring her back?”

Amara finds Sam and Dean way too easily, but decides she wants to grab a snack, especially since she hasn’t ever tried a Pennsylvania Pierogi  before.

There is a lot of shop talk, but Dean does ask an important question, wondering why Amara brought Mary back.

Amara explains that she wanted Dean to be able to move on with his life and experience Mary as a real person to replace the ideal/fantasy of her, which she considered to be a gift.

I actually thought this was extremely important for Dean because we know that he has been holding on to this pain. In the end, Dean asks Amara if she will help them and she agrees to think it over, but it seems like he has every intention of still betraying her even after their heart-to-heart conversation.

1

“This is the only way they’ll ever forgive me…”

At the very end of the episode, Jack reveals that the plan to stop God and Amara will ultimately kill him. He is basically a bomb that will go off to destroy them, but he will not survive.

Castiel refuses to let him do this, but Jack reminds him that it is his choice and that it’s the only way Sam and Dean will ever forgive him for killing Mary.

Supernatural season 15 episode 15 Jack

Images courtesy of The CW

We’ve seen Castiel and the brothers keep secrets before, but at the end, Castiel says that there is something Sam and Dean need to know. Is he going to tell them about what will happen to Jack or is he going to tell them something else? I’m hoping he goes with the truth because we’ve seen these secrets destroy their bond before.

I keep coming back to Castiel somehow taking Jack’s place in the end, but we still have 5 more episodes left.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 15 episode 14: “Last Holiday”

Happy Sunday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 14, I learned that “we do what we gotta do,” but sometimes it doesn’t hurt to take a moment to celebrate the little things.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 14, “Last Holiday,” Sam, Dean, and Jack meet a wood nymph named Mrs. Butters who is determined to get the boys to celebrate. Meanwhile, Jack tries to come to terms with his ultimate mission.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 14 are:

5

“What’s with the apron?”

I mean, there is only one answer here, Sam. Burgers! It’s been quite some time since we last checked in on Sam and Dean and I’m happy to have these final new episodes to enjoy.

After taking some time to cook up a storm, Sam and Dean take on a new mission…dealing with a few old pipes. I mean, they should be able to handle this, right?

4

“That’s it. I’m getting my gun.”

Supernatural Season 15 episode 14 Mrs Butters

Later on, Dean walks into his room and finds a woman folding his “under garments.” We learn that she is a wood nymph named Mrs. Butters who used to work for the previous Men of Letters.

She seems to know quite a lot and even introduces Sam and Dean to a monster radar system they never knew they had and…supper.

It looks like they might have hit the jackpot on this one, but can she be trusted?

3

“Enjoy the world you’re fighting for.”

Merry Christmas! Oh and let’s cram in every other holiday too to really have some fun. I have to admit that it was adorable seeing Sam and Dean light up when they got a chance to experience a snapshot version of each holiday.

Dean’s pajamas deserve a special mention too!

“I would never hurt them.”

We quickly learn that Mrs. Butters is actually too good to be true. She sees Jack as a threat and wants to protect Sam and Dean, which really puts Dean in a difficult spot. Dean’s reaction is hilarious, but he recognizes that he needs to save Jack and tries to get Mrs. Butters to see reason.

Meanwhile, Sam gets tortured by Mrs. Butters, but luckily Dean comes up with a plan to get them out of there safely.

“You’re the only one who can…”

After talking things over with Mrs. Butters, she realizes that she was being used previously and actually parts on good terms. Things are back to normal, but we take a few minutes for Jack and Sam to have a heart-to-heart talk.

Sam believes in Jack and tells him that he can do this, but the sweetest moment was when Dean brought in a birthday cake for Jack.

It’s been difficult for Dean to accept Jack back into their lives, but I thought this was an important first step and Jack’s reaction was priceless.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 13: “Destiny’s Child”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 13, I remembered that being dead tends to never really stick on our favorite show. You could be almost dead or really dead, but there’s always a loophole…

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Destiny’s Child,” Sam and Dean take a trip down to Hell to find the Occultum. Meanwhile, Castiel decides to take extreme measures to contact an old fan favorite, but she’s not alone…

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 13 are:

5

“Dean…Sam? Sam…Dean?”

Things get a little confusing when Chuck begins to destroy worlds, as Sam and Dean come face to face with another version of themselves after a rift opens. This Sam and Dean are very different in some ways and reveal that they actually get paid to hunt monsters. Sign me up for Hunter Corp!

When Sam and Dean plan to go down to Hell, they decide to bring the other Sam and Dean into their world to keep up appearances in case Chuck/God checks in on them. Other Sam is sporting a man bun and other Dean likes collared shirts, but they get an interesting day in the life of the real Sam and Dean, bringing us some much needed humor along the way.

I’m not sure they should have touched Dean’s car though…

“Pray with Sister Jo!”

Sister Jo is back and she’s not alone. We discover that Sam and Dean require something called the occultum in order to face Chuck/God. Sister Jo apparently knows where it is, but claims that Ruby had it last, leading to some welcomed flashbacks of one of our favorite demons.

Ruby apparently stashed the occultum somewhere in Hell, which leads to a field trip that screams trap, but Castiel has a feeling that Sister Jo is withholding some key information.

I loved the scenes between Sister Jo and Ruby and it was fun to see the girls really take over in this episode.

3

“I don’t feel things the way I used to.”

Jack is also going through quite a lot in this episode as he opens up to Castiel, explaining that he realizes that things have changed since he returned. Jack wonders if Dean will ever forgive him for what happened to Mary and Castiel sheds some light on Dean, really reminding us just how well he knows him.

Dean sometimes runs on a short fuse, but the feelings are always there and he may just need a lot of time to truly work this out.

2

“Go get her, Pizza Man!”

The pizza man is back! Well, we do get a fun flashback reminder before the episode starts, but The Empty makes a special appearance posing as Meg when Castiel tries to contact Ruby. Jack helps Castiel become “almost dead” so that he can get some answers, but The Empty seems to have an agenda of her own.

Castiel does get to talk to Ruby, who reveals where the occultum is, explaining that it is actually a place. However, she does want something in return. Castiel agrees to find a way to get her out of there, as we are reminded that The Empty is actually quite full.

We know that The Empty is still a threat to Castiel, even though he hasn’t experienced this moment of happiness. However, The Empty is on death’s side, which means that the Winchesters have another enemy to deal with.

I absolutely loved seeing both Meg and Ruby and thought this was a fun way to bring back some of our fan favorites for the last season.

Still waiting on Crowley though…

1

“Who are you meant to be?”

After heading to the occultum, the guys run into some trouble with hellhounds. Sam tries to keep them out of the church, as Jack decides to swallow the occultum based on the instructions. Jack ends up traveling to “The Garden,” which apparently has not been done in almost forever.

Jack taps into something and when he returns, his soul is back as well. Jack breaks down about what he did to Mary and begs Sam and Dean for forgiveness, which was absolutely heartbreaking to witness.

Jack is back, but he has also traveled to the garden so we don’t know if there are any side effects from this. It’s clear that he is they key to stopping Chuck/God, but will his soul get in the way of him doing what needs to be done?

Stay tuned SPN Family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 12: “Galaxy Brain”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 12, I remembered that sometimes less is more, but is canceling shows really the answer to Chuck’s problems?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In tonight’s episode, “Galaxy Brain,” Sam and Dean attempt to figure out their next move while Jody ends up in trouble. Meanwhile, Chuck/God grows tired of the other worlds while the Winchesters risk everything to protect an innocent.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 12 are:

5

“I trust Jack…”

“Trust is a strong word,” but Sam and Dean are running out of options to stop Chuck/God. Billie seems to know what she’s talking about most of the time and we know that Jack has good intentions, but it’s clear that Sam and Dean are treading lightly here.

Jack cannot use his powers or he will alert Chuck, but can he control himself now that he is back in the real world? Let’s hope so.

4

“If you don’t come, I’m dead.”

Meanwhile, Jody runs into some trouble as well and makes a call to the Winchesters to help her out of a jam. It’s always good to see Jody and as we approach the end of the series, I hope we get some more screen time for her because it brings back so much SPN nostalgia.

It was also amazing to see Jody finally meet Castiel and I thought the chat about Claire was truly touching.

3

“She haunts me.”

Jody is not the only one to return in this episode, as we learn that Dark Kaia is responsible for holding her captive. She tells Sam and Dean that Jack can get her back to her world, but they are not initially too inclined to help her after she holds their friend against her will.

Dark Kaia reveals that her world is dying and that she has been having some prophetic nightmares, revealing that the real Kaia is actually still alive and trapped in her world.

We know that Chuck is looking to potentially shut down all other worlds so they better get Kaia out of there quick. After all, they’re running out of time…

2

“I don’t belong in your world.”

Even though the Winchesters are risking exposure to save one life, they are not about to leave an innocent behind. They return to Dark Kaia’s world, which is just as ominous as I remember. Kaia is saved and Dark Kaia decides to stay, even though it doesn’t look like her world is going to last much longer.

Jack and Kaia have a nice chat and we learn that nursery rhymes can get you through quite a lot.

It seems that all is well and Chuck has not been alerted, but another surprise guest is about to make her own appearance with killer style.

1

“I see the big picture…”

Billie shows up and takes out the reaper who has been spying on Jack, but good news never seems to travel along with her. Billie reveals that all the worlds are dying except for this one. Chuck is “wiping the slate clean” for the end, but Sam asks Billie what her end game is.

Billie reveals that everyone has a book in death’s library…even Chuck/God. Apparently the books write themselves and no one can read their own books. Billie reminds Sam and Dean that this is their destiny. They are the messengers of God’s destruction, but is there a price that comes along with this destiny?

What’s inside Chuck’s book and how is it linked to the fate of the Winchesters?

We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but it looks like the glimmer of hope is increasing more and more now…even in the midst of the end of the world.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 11: “The Gamblers”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 11, the Winchesters asked themselves if luck could really fix everything?  Well maybe not, but that will never stop them from doing the right thing, even if the odds are not in their favor.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In Thursday night’s episode, “The Gamblers,” Sam and Dean head to Alaska to see if they can turn their luck around.  Meanwhile, Castiel receives a surprising phone call that could change everything.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 11 are:

5

“He wants us off our game.”

Sam and Dean’s luck has not turned around just yet, but they start to wonder why Chuck/God has stripped it away from them.  Dean recognizes that Chuck wants to make them weak, but what is Chuck’s ultimate plan here?

It may be possible that Chuck wants Sam and Dean to question everything so that he can take advantage of their decisions or is this all one big test for them to prove their worth in the final battle?

We’ll have to wait to find out…

4

“Magic Pool Hall.”

I don’t know about you, but I thought this was one of the coolest concepts and episodes I have seen on SPN in a while.  The idea of a Magic Pool Hall to gamble a chance at doubling your luck really worked for me.

Sam and Dean learn that if their coin goes blank, they have to leave.  There’s always a catch and we realize that once your luck is gone, you are out of time, but does Dean have what it takes to wipe out the competition?

3

“I learn from my brother.”

Dean proves to be quite the worthy opponent and I was beyond impressed with his pool skills, but Sam and Dean quickly realize that someone is stealing everyone’s luck…Atrox Fortuna, the Roman goddess of fate and luck.

Atrox Fortuna claims that Dean is just a “beach read” and is way more interested in Sam playing.  Sam accepts the challenge and shows off his own skills, proving that he has learned quite a bit from big brother Dean over the years.

Go Sam!

2

“Don’t play his game. Make him play yours.”

Sam and Dean decide to challenge Atrox Fortuna to free everyone in the pool hall, even though it looks like their luck may be running out.  Atrox Fortuna seems intrigued by their offer, but shows off her own skills before Sam even gets his turn.

Sam and Dean surprisingly leave with their lives, but are shocked when everyone else follows them out of the pool hall.  It seems their honorable acts did not go unnoticed, as Atrox Fortuna says she thought their kind no longer existed…heroes.

The Winchesters have certainly earned this title, but let’s hope they can use Atrox Fortuna’s advice to stop Chuck/God in the end.

Dean starts Baby back up and it looks like the Winchesters are back!

“It’s really him.”

Castiel tracks down a lead and is shocked to learn that Jack Klein has been spotted.  After witnessing Jack devour some hearts, Castiel is not sure what he is about to discover, but we learn that it is the real Jack and Billie has been keeping him hidden in The Empty to keep him off Chuck’s radar.

We witness a beautiful and heartwarming reunion between Jack, Castiel, Sam, and Dean, which honestly brought tears to my eyes, as their son returns to the family.

It seems that our theories have been spot on, as Jack may be the only one who is actually strong enough to stop Chuck/God for good.  And so the countdown to the end begins…

Stay tuned SPN family!  New episodes return on Monday, March 16th!  We’re nearing the end now!
