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.”

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!

“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.

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…

“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.

“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.

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 2: “Raising Hell”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 2, Castiel reminded us that life may be an obstacle course, but we do run our own race.  Sometimes it may feel like we are just puppets, but we can still determine our own fate and what we do each day is real and significant.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Raising Hell,” some familiar faces show up since it’s basically all hands on deck at this point, but is there anyone who can stop these souls from taking over the world?  Meanwhile, Chuck/God has a family reunion and Dean and Castiel have a heart-to-heart talk.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 2 are:

5

“Am I interrupting something juicy?”

It’s always great to see Rowena, who shows up to help the Winchesters out of this jam.  Rowena is willing to help, but she does point out that a town full of ghosts is extremely messy even by Winchester standards.  Rowena also seems to be quite familiar with the leader of the ghosts, Francis.  Will she be able to put a dent in his plan or do we need some more recruits to fight the good fight?  Either way, I always want Rowena on my side!

4

“Ketch…how are you here?”

Rowena is not the only one to show up to help out, as Ketch makes a grand entrance as well.  Ketch and Rowena have an interesting vibe going on, although Sam and Dean don’t seem to be too interested in this love connection.  Ketch claims that he wants to help, but things get interesting when he becomes possessed by Francis.

After Dean uses an iron bullet on him, Ketch reminds him that this isn’t the first time he has tried to kill him, but Castiel cannot heal Ketch, which means that something is definitely off in the universe.  It looks like our former assassin is all right for now, but everyone will need to be more careful moving forward.

“What about all of this is real?  We are.”

It wouldn’t be Supernatural if we didn’t get some kind of motivational speech and Castiel and Dean stop to have a heart-to-heart chat.  Dean is still feeling very defeated, but Castiel maintains a positive spin.  I think that Castiel makes a significant point and I’m just hoping that Dean can truly see the good that they are all doing.  There is always this dynamic when one character loses faith, but I’m hoping that they can all find some way to keep on believing in the final season.

“You’re on your own.”

Dean is not the only one to think twice about life and his purpose, as Chuck/God decides to pay his sister a visit.  Amara is not exactly pleased to see her brother and seems to be perfectly content right where she is.  Chuck wants to take on some kind of family project, clearly searching for something else beyond the world he just abandoned, but it looks like he is starting to realize his mistake. 

Later on, Amara detects that Chuck is not at full strength and it appears that he has also been weakened by the bullet.  When Chuck touches the wound on his shoulder, Sam also feels it, which means that they are somehow linked.  I started thinking about what this means and I was wondering if Sam could be next in line to be the new “God” of the world? 

Maybe it’s time for someone else to take over and perhaps this link will allow him to do so.  We’ll have to see how this plays out, but it’s clear that Chuck and Sam’s fates are now intertwined.

“I love you guys…”

Kevin also shows up during this episode, but Dean is extremely surprised to see him since he was under the impression that he was in heaven.  Chuck/God lied about this, which means he could have been lying about a lot of other things, but Kevin is now basically trapped between Hell and earth.  Apparently once a soul has been to Hell it can’t go to heaven and Chuck/God is no longer on the Winchesters’ side, so it looks like Kevin doesn’t have much of a choice here.

It’s clear that Kevin thinks of Sam and Dean as his true family and I’m hoping that they can find a way to help him.  However, it looks like they need to first tackle the issue of more souls coming out to play, which makes me wonder how they will get out of this one?  Stay tuned SPN family!
