Happy Friday TV fans! After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 13 episode 20 last night, I learned that it’s never too late to pass on advice and knowledge that could save someone from making the same mistakes we did. Even though we don’t have any control over their decisions, taking a moment to remind them that we are here for them can sometimes make a world of difference. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In last night’s episode, “Unfinished Business,” Sam and Dean try to track down Gabriel and are surprised when he shows up right at their doorstep, but usually that comes with a catch. Meanwhile, Jack and Mary decide what to do next in their fight against Michael, while alternate reality Kevin Tran makes a grave mistake. My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 13 episode 20 are:
In the beginning of the episode, Sam and Dean try to track down Gabriel with the help of one of Rowena’s locator spells. They are held up at a seedy motel which really doesn’t have much going for it. Well that is until Dean discovers that the bed vibrates. Talk about a bonus. Before they can finish their argument on where to look next, they got a knock at the door. Gabriel makes their job much easier than they anticipated when he shows up wounded, looking for help from the Winchester brothers. But what’s the catch?
Other Kevin Tran…the traitor.
We finally get to see Jack and Mary in the other reality beyond the rift and they are trying to plan out their next move while they wait for Bobby to return. Michael is proving to be a dangerous threat and leaves behind a prisoner in the dungeon, which is none other than Kevin Tran. While many in the group call him a traitor, Kevin begins revealing important information about Michael’s plan. He tells the group about the spell to open the rift and that Michael intends to invade our world. Mary always tries to see the best in everyone, which includes Kevin, but Kevin seems to be too far gone. He continues to explain what Michael promised him, which includes a one-way ticket to heaven where his mother will be waiting for him. While one can feel sympathetic toward this broken version of Kevin, it’s hard to forgive him entirely, as we know what our very own Kevin Tran was capable of. While both were prophets, this Kevin is unable to stand against Michael and activates the spell. It’s a shame he didn’t have the Winchester brothers here to help influence him in this world. While we don’t know how many casualties there are, Jack cloaks Mary with his wings so it looks like they will both be alright.
“I can’t lose another boy.”
After Jack hears that Michael is trying to break him and is told that he will not be able to win, Jack is determined to go after Michael and stop him. Mary warns him to stop and think about this, however. She reminds Jack that she was very much like him before and that running in blind has consequences that can be irrevocable. Even though Jack tries to tell her that he is strong and capable of stopping him, Mary pleads with him and tells him, “I can’t lose another boy.” Clearly Jack and Mary have bonded and become very close in the world beyond the rift. Mary remembers all too well what happened when she was taken from her own two boys and she can’t bear to have the past repeated. But will Jack heed her warning?
“I thought this story had porn stars.”
After Gabriel shows up looking for assistance, Sam and Dean agree to help as long as Gabriel helps them in return. He begins telling them about his story of revenge, as he desperately wants to punish those who were responsible for selling him off to Asmodeus. The kill list leads to Loki, the original trickster, who will be the most difficult of all to kill. Sam and Dean agree to help but Dean is not really invested in this. After Loki says, “So you’re Dean Winchester,” Dean dismisses him and tries to get to the fighting so this can all be over with. After Gabriel puts an end to Loki, his mission is complete and he agrees to help the Winchester brothers who are a little surprised at this. Gabriel reminds them that “a deal is a deal and tricks are for kids.” While it looks like Gabriel is on board for now, can Sam and Dean really trust him?
“Sam, I’m not going to apologize for trying to protect you.”
It’s getting to be quite routine for the last 10 minutes of Supernatural episodes to feature some kind of revealing and epic talk between our favorite brothers, but I guess they can’t really find the time to have a heartfelt discussion in the middle of a battle between Norse demigods and archangels. Sam tries to get Dean to open up to him, refusing to be left on the sidelines or “at the kid’s table,” as he so eloquently puts it. Dean tells him that he won’t apologize for trying to protect him and reminds him about what happened before, which led to Sam dying and ending up in hell. Dean explains that “I don’t care what happens to me but I do care what happens to my brother.” Sam appreciates the sentiment, but reminds Dean that they are in this together. Even if that means dying, they will be together. After all, the Winchester brothers are a package deal.
I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Supernatural in the comments section below. Happy viewing!
