Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 9: “Happy Holidays”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 9, I realized that the holidays are about hope, love, giving, and family.  But what happens when you lose that hope?  Are you lost forever or is there a sliver of it still dimming in the dark?   Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Spear,” Michael gathers his army in Kansas City and Garth attempts to work undercover, but is in way over his head.  Meanwhile, Sam and Dean split up to try and track down weapons that will hurt Michael.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 9 mid-season finale are:

 5

“Cookietacular is the secret password.”

In the beginning of the episode, Jack and Castiel have a heartwarming talk and we learn that Sam and Dean do not know about Castiel’s deal with “The Empty.”  Castiel tries to explain to Jack that they don’t need that burden.  He further reveals that “this life may be a lot of things, but it’s rarely happy.”  However, on the bright side, they do have “Crunch Cookie Crunch,” which actually looks pretty appetizing.  Castiel may think he has a lot of time left, but we know that “The Empty” will not stay gone for long.  It seems like everyone on the show wants to protect someone else from knowing the truth, but perhaps some openness can allow our favorite characters to prepare for the worst in advance?

4

“You put the only weapon we have against Michael in the mail?”

Ketch calls in to well…catch up and to also fill the Winchester brothers in on the status of the egg, which is a weapon that can harm Michael.  Everyone is very short on time, but Ketch decided to put this important weapon in the mail.  The post office is closed for the holidays, which gives Sam and Jack a chance to track it down before it winds up in the wrong hands, but they quickly realize that Michael is one step ahead of them.  Jack is captured by Michael and Sam is injured, which puts everyone on edge, as they realize that they are running out of time.  So, maybe the mail was not such a great idea.  Just saying Ketch.

3

“I gotta be on the winning side.”

Garth is back and is working undercover to help Sam and Dean fight Michael, but perhaps he is in a little bit over his head.  Michael recognizes Garth, but allows him to “volunteer,” which means that he will need to take Michael’s amped-up archangel grace.  Garth initially thinks that he can fool Michael, but is forced to swallow every last drop.  Later on, Garth’s transformation begins and he attacks Sam.  Sam is able to knock him out for now, but hopefully someone has a cure for him.  Either way, it’s always nice to see a familiar face on Supernatural.

2

“So if you’re not gonna give it to me…kill me.”

After Michael destroys the egg, there is only one weapon left that we know will harm Michael.  Dean tracks down other Kaia, who is not about to let her spear go without a fight.  Dean reasons with her and asks for her help and Kaia agrees.  Kaia wants something in return; however, and asks for Jack to open the door again so that she can return to her world.  Dean agrees without hesitation, even though we know that Jack has lost his powers, but I guess it’s one crisis at a time for now.

1

“Impossible odds…feels like home.”

After we learn that Michael’s plan is to turn every single person in Kansas City, our favorite characters are ready to face him and stop him once and for all.  Dean valiantly fights against Michael with the spear, but Michael knows exactly what he is doing.  In a twist, Michael possesses Dean again and destroys the spear.  He explains that he wanted to bury Dean and destroy every last inch of his hope.  Dean is gone and Michael now has an army waiting and ready for Michael’s signal, which is Dean snapping his fingers.  We will have to wait until January 17th for new episodes, but I am slightly disappointed that we are back to the possession story-line again.  While I knew that there had to be a reason for Michael letting Dean go, I feel like this has already been done.  It looks like Sam, Castiel, and Jack will need to tap into Dean’s mind to free him somehow, but I’m not that invested in this.  I’m hoping that we get some more campy horror fun and some screen time for Rowena and Nick/Lucifer.  Stay tuned for new episodes in the New Year!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 7: “It’s Time Together that Matters”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 7, I realized that it’s not the big moments that count the most.  It’s the memories we have and the “time together that matters,” as Jack so eloquently pointed out.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Unhuman Behavior,” Jack’s health takes a turn for the worse, as Sam, Dean, and Castiel desperately try to figure out a way to save him.  Meanwhile, Nick continues to head down a path of darkness, revealing his inner true nature.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 7 are:

5

“He was stabbed through the heart and exploded.”

Even though this episode was an emotional roller coaster for me, Castiel provided us with a laugh out loud moment to break the tension.  After Castiel determines that he cannot help Jack, he takes him to the hospital and everyone is beyond stressed about the situation.  After Dean has trouble coming up with details about Jack’s birth date, the family medical history seems like it could be handled, especially since we know that Jack’s biological father, Lucifer, is dead.  However, Castiel bluntly tells the woman at the hospital exactly how Lucifer died, which leads to some strange looks from her and Sam and Dean.

4

“His body is shutting down.”

After Jack’s hospital tests come back negative, this seems like a good sign, but the doctor explains that Jack’s body is actually shutting down and they can’t figure out why.  It is later determined that Jack needs archangel grace to survive, but it’s not like this is easy to find anymore.  Against the doctor’s recommendation, Sam and Dean take Jack out of the hospital and refuse to give up.  They are ready to use all of their resources to help him.  While they begin discussing what Jack needs, Dean repeatedly zones out during the conversation.  Does this mean that Michael is somehow still linked to Dean?  Could this be the key to helping Jack?  We’ll have to wait to find out, but there is definitely something not quite right with Dean.

3

“Is this a trick Samuel?”

Our favorite witch is back!  After realizing that they cannot help Jack, Sam calls up Rowena.  Rowena initially thinks she is there to help Dean, but quickly learns that Sam wants her to help Jack.  Rowena is not exactly thrilled about this at first since she does not have the best history with Lucifer, but Jack approaches Rowena and explains, “I’m trying hard not to be like him.”  He tells Rowena that Sam and Dean say such nice things about her as well, revealing his innocent charm.  Rowena agrees to try and help Jack, but quickly realizes that she is in over her head.

2

“I like doing these things and I don’t want to stop.”

We finally catch up to Nick in this episode and learn that he is continuing to spiral out of control.  Nick is obsessed with finding out what happened to his family, but his journey is leading him down a very dark path.  Nick seems overwhelmed by all of these feelings, but the darkness continues to win, as he brutally murders anyone he determines to be guilty.  The ex-cop reveals to Nick something about the name, Abraxas, which seems familiar to his Lucifer memories, but we don’t have too much to go on here just yet.  Later on, Nick begins to pray and reveals that he actually likes tapping into the darkness and begs Lucifer to return to him.  Nick has clearly stirred something up inside of him, but is it enough for Lucifer to re-surface?  I’m thinking that it’s only a matter of time before he makes himself known.

1

“It’s time together that matters.”

Jack has accepted his fate, even though his “Dads” refuse to give up.  Jack just wants to have a chance to really experience life and Dean agrees to accompany him.  Dean teaches Jack to drive and hilariously reminds him that, “R is not for race.”  Jack really tries to be like Dean here, which is absolutely adorable and even screams out, “It’s like I’m you!”  This is definitely a heartwarming father-son moment and it looks like Dean needed this just as much as Jack did.  Later on, Jack expresses a desire to go fishing with Dean and tells him that he remembers that it is one of Dean’s fondest memories with his own father.  Jack opens up to Dean here and really gives us all an important lesson about life when he explains that it’s about the time together that truly matters.  After the Serbian Shaman’s “experiment” fails, Jack is in even worse condition and Sam, Dean, and Castiel are completely helpless.  They stay by Jack’s side to support him, but is there any other way to save him?  Let’s hope so because I can’t bear to see Jack go.  He has made such an impact on everyone and they truly think of him as a son.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 6: “Pie Is Important”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 6, I learned that it’s really never easy to give “the talk,” but Dean somehow manages to give the Cliff Notes version, while also reminding us about the importance of pie along the way.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Optimism,” Dean agrees to take Jack out on a case and Jack learns about “courting.”  Meanwhile, Sam and other Charlie work together in Tennessee and Sam tries to help her open up to him.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 6 are:

5

“Nobody comes to the library anymore.”

So sad, right?  In the beginning of the episode, we meet a young woman named Harper.  Harper seems to have a natural glow of positivism around her and she absolutely adores surrounding herself with books.  A girl after my own heart.  Only this is Supernatural and we know that something is about to go horribly wrong.  After agreeing to dinner, her future date named Winston is brutally attacked outside the library.  It looks like someone will be on the case soon, but I have to say that I was immediately drawn in to this mystery.

4

“Maybe I’m allergic to sitting around doing nothing.”

Jack stumbles across this case and is eager to check it out.  Even though Sam has expressed some concern about Jack going out on cases, Dean agrees to let him tag along.  Jack is more than excited and explains that they can be “hunting buddies,” but clearly he has a lot to learn, as Dean reminds him not to call it that.  It looks like there is a new dynamic duo on the case!

3

“So we got creative…cool.”

While Dean and Jack go off to check out the case, Sam is in Tennessee with other Charlie and they get into a sticky situation.  During the episode, Sam tries to get other Charlie to open up to him, who doesn’t seem particularly thrilled to be out hunting, even though she is quite good at it.  Charlie doesn’t seem like she wants to talk about anything initially, but does end up opening up to Sam about the love of her life.  While it’s great to have Charlie back, I’m still having some issues connecting with her and other Bobby.  It doesn’t seem like anyone on this show really stays dead unless they end up on another show like Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but I almost wish they would bring back someone like Crowley instead.  Fast forward to Sam and other Charlie fighting some kind of bug creature and other Charlie gets some serious goo all over her, which lightens the mood a little bit.

2

“It’s a little game we play.”

After Dean and Jack try to help Harper, we learn that Harper actually comes from a line of Necromancers.  Harper has raised her high school boyfriend from the dead and they get off on playing twisted games with innocent suitors.  Unfortunately, Jack has just stepped into that role, but luckily he has Dean by his side to back him up.

1

“Pie is important.”

If you are looking to take away any lesson from this episode, it’s that “pie is important.”  Just kidding.  Jack has his first real encounter with love and panics when he realizes that he doesn’t know too much about “courting” or sex.  Dean hilariously tells him that he will give him “the talk” later, but is upset when Jack refers to him as an old man.  At the end of the episode, they are able to stop Harper’s dead boyfriend, but Harper makes it out and writes a stalker-like love letter to Jack.  Only Jack has bigger things to worry about, as Dean discovers that Jack is coughing blood and ends up unconscious.  What’s wrong with Jack?  Will the Winchester brothers be able to save him?  Also, are we going to eventually circle back to Nick?  Either way, I enjoyed this episode more than episode 5 and I appreciated the unlikely partnership between Dean and Jack.  Let’s hope that they can help him before it’s too late.  Stay tuned!

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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 4: “Time To Slice and Dice!”

Happy Friday TV fans!  Everyone enjoys a good horror movie marathon.  Well maybe some people more than others, but what happens when the horror comes to life?  Is it your dream come true or your worst nightmare?  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 4, Dean pretty much indicated that this is the coolest thing ever and I agree, as this has been my favorite episode so far this season.  Supernatural did what it does best, providing us with some laugh out loud funny moments with some campy horror mixed in.  More of this please!  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Mint Condition,” Sam tries to get Dean out of his funk by telling him about a case that involves toys coming to life, which immediately grabs his brother’s attention.  As Sam and Dean try to figure out exactly what they are dealing with, they both bond with a different comic book store owner and Sam finally reveals why he hates Halloween.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 4 are:

5

“Our life is a scary movie.”

In the beginning of the episode, Dean is enjoying some pizza and watching a horror movie marathon, which includes one starring “Hatchet Man” with the catch phrase, “Time to Slice and Dice!”  I have to admit that Dean was absolutely adorable in this scene, but Sam is not too impressed with Dean’s decision to stay in his room all the time.  While Dean listens to Sam, he takes this time to comment on the fact that Sam has shaved his beard.  Sam tries to get Dean to stay on track and reminds him that “our life is a scary movie.”

4

“She’s like your wonder twin.”

After Sam tells Dean about an action figure supposedly coming to life and attacking someone, Dean is in and ready for a case.  He enthusiastically says, “Thundercats…seriously!”  Sam and Dean head off to the comic book store to check things out and Dean thinks the girl owner is Sam’s wonder twin right down to her delicate features and luxurious hair.  Sam takes this time to point out the other owner in the horror section with a lollipop, suggesting that he is Dean’s double.  This joke proceeds to go even further, as both Winchester brothers spend some quality time with their “twins” and realize that they actually do have quite a bit in common.

3

“Why do you know what that means?”

Sam and Dean track down the comic book store employee who was attacked named Stuart.  Stuart is beyond hilarious, as he insists on voicing his opinions loudly to his opponent in a video game.  After trying to figure out who might have a motive to hurt Stuart, he talks about his ex-girlfriend who was into “wicca.”  When he talks about “mirl,” Dean is beyond confused and Sam explains that this means “meeting in real life.”  I laughed so hard when Dean asked Sam how he knew what that meant, keeping this episode super fun and light.  Dean suspects that a witch might be involved, but they soon find out that they are dealing with the ghost of the former owner of the comic book store who is not the biggest fan of Stuart.

2

“Unless it’s Godzilla…it’s real!”

After Dean is almost taken out by a flying chainsaw, Stuart ends up in the hospital and they decide to keep an eye on him, as the ghost is clearly targeting him.  Stuart’s best friend hangs around too and Dean starts to realize that actually do have a lot in common and are both huge fans of the “Hatchet Man” movies.  Dean explains, “I like to watch movies where I know the bad guy is going to lose,” actually shedding some light on another reason why he has been locked up in his room for so long, not ready to truly cope with what happened with Michael.  The ghost decides to possess a “Hatchet Man” animatronic and heads to the hospital, which is a thrill for Dean and his new pal.  Meanwhile, Sam bonds with the girl owner and they try and figure out how to stop the ghost once and for all and realize that they pretty much think the same way.  When “Hatchet Man” arrives, Dean grabs an ax and is ready to face his favorite horror movie villain.  Dean vs. Hatchet Man…place your bets!  This fight is absolutely hilarious, as “Hatchet Man” proceeds to press the button on his chest so that his famous catch phrases are said, which makes the battle that much more epic for Dean.  After the key-chain is destroyed, the ghost is eliminated and the threat is over, but Dean reminds us that this was absolutely awesome and I agree!

1

“Why do you hate Halloween?”

The moment we have all been waiting for is here, as Sam finally tells Dean why he hates Halloween so much.  After Sam gives Dean a pep talk on the ride back, Dean agrees to come out of his room more even though he will not be able to just erase what happened with Michael.  Now that this is resolved, Dean takes this opportunity to find out exactly why Sam hates Halloween.  After initially saying, “You don’t want to know,” Sam finally opens up and talks about a girl named Andrea he used to like and how she invited him over for a Halloween party.  Sam had been super nervous and when he had to bob for apples, he ended up puking everywhere…even on Andrea.  Sam spent the rest of the night hiding out in the woods traumatized while he waited for Dean.  Poor Sam!  Dean decides that it’s time for him to get over this and that they can dress up as a “dynamic duo” next year like Batman and Robin or perhaps Thelma and Louise, which is beyond hilarious.  Overall, this episode was extremely entertaining and I have a feeling I will continue to watch it every Halloween.  Let’s keep these episodes coming!  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 2: “Why be hunted when you can be the Hunter?”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 2, Castiel reminded us that the past is not as important as the future and where you’re going.  While he has a valid point, it’s difficult to know where you are going when you don’t really understand where you came from.  So do you seek out answers or do you keep moving straight ahead?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Gods and Monsters,” Dean/Michael leaves a trail of corpses in Duluth to lure Sam in.  Meanwhile, Jack wants to know more about where he comes from, Castiel cannot comprehend a world without Dean, and Nick’s human memories torment him.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 2 are:

5

“Maybe these people aren’t people.”

During the episode, Sam, Mary, and other realm Bobby dust off their FBI suits and head off to Duluth to investigate the string of murders they have read about.  Other realm Bobby needs to work on his FBI lingo, but it seems like they are blending in well enough for now.  They soon discover that Dean/Michael has actually been killing vampires and track down a female vampire who somehow escaped for more information.  She tells them that it’s like Dean/Michael was experimenting on them, but why?  Later on, Dean/Michael lures in a werewolf and requests an audience with her master, interested in their way of life.  Dean/Michael is fascinated that they “kill to live” and further explains that there is “a purity in that.”  He offers the werewolves the opportunity to “enhance their talents,” but what does this entail exactly?  Is Michael trying to create a whole new breed of supernatural monsters to take over the world?  What else is he after?

4

“I own you so hang on and enjoy the ride.”

Michael seems to be enjoying walking around as Dean Winchester and he has really updated Dean’s wardrobe.  First the newsboy cap and now a polished tux, which really makes Dean look even more charming…if that were at all possible.  When Michael checks out his attire in the mirror, Dean tries to fight back within his reflection, but Michael reminds him that he owns him.  At least Dean is not sitting by quietly in the passenger seat while Michael takes the wheel.

3

“All I can see is the supreme agent of evil.”

When Sam takes off for Duluth, he asks Castiel to stay behind so that Michael cannot detect him.  Castiel agrees, but realizes that he will pretty much be “babysitting” Jack and Nick.  Sam explains that it’s not babysitting, but Castiel hilariously points out, “Only in the sense that they are not infants.”  Jack has lost his grace and Nick is a complete mess, but Sam thinks that Nick deserves a real chance.  When Castiel speaks with Nick, Nick wants answers about why he allowed Lucifer to occupy his body.  Castiel explains that “you were in a lot of pain and Lucifer exploited it.”  He further reminds Nick that he tragically lost his family, who were brutally murdered, and Lucifer took full advantage of Nick’s grief in this moment.  All of the horrible memories start to come crashing back and they seem to be too much for Nick to handle.  Nick has a few moments where it almost seems like he is not in control of his body so it makes me wonder if any part of Lucifer stayed behind?  Nick later tells Castiel that he is no different than Lucifer, but Castiel takes a real moment to tell him that he regrets what he did to Jimmy Novak and his family.  Castiel has developed so much over the years and truly understands what it means to have regrets and guilt.  Later on, Nick tries to track down leads about the killing of his family and ends up taking a hammer to an eye witness, violently killing him.  Nick is out of control and has taken things to the next level.  Is he acting out on his own or has Lucifer permanently destroyed any goodness within him?

2

“I hope someday to have a little of her courage and purpose.”

While “babysitting,” Castiel has better luck with Jack, who is still feeling lost and out of place without his grace.  His research tells us that his grace can come back within a month or within a century, which means that it might be quite a while for him.  Castiel explains that he understands what Jack is going through and further tells him that Sam and Dean spent years and years of failing and winning, which allowed them to develop over the years into the hunters they have now become.  He tells Jack that patience and persistence are skills too and reminds him that the past is not as important as the future.  Jack still has a desire to find out where he comes from and visits his grandparents.  Kelly’s parents have no idea that she is dead and Jack doesn’t have the heart to tell them.  They think that Jack was a former intern of Kelly’s, but they are so happy to share some memories with him and even take out an old photo album for him to see.  In a touching moment, Jack shares that Kelly did have the baby and that she “made him feel safe and wanted.”  His grandparents even comment that Jack kind of looks like their daughter and they ask him to please tell her how much they love and miss her.  This moment was truly important for Jack because there is so much of his mother’s goodness within him.  He recognizes that his path will not be an easy one, but he is hoping to make his mother proud and I think that he is absolutely taking a step in the right direction.

1

“Sammy…it’s me.”

After watching Supernatural for so many years, it’s become routine for Sam or Dean to wind up somewhere else at the end of a season, only to then safely return by episode 2 or 3 of the following one.  Season 14 is no different, as Dean returns to Sam without Michael at the end of the episode.  Dean explains that he just left, but Sam asks why and he has a point.  Michael has been making a lot of progress using Dean as his vessel, so why would he choose to abandon him now?  We know that he has spoken with the werewolf leader and has pretty much dominated the vampires, so what has changed?  When Sam, Mary, and other realm Bobby try to fight off the monsters, they realize that traditional methods for killing them are not working.  Has Michael already created his new breed of monsters?  If so, why abandon Dean now?  Michael is extremely intelligent and he seems to plan out every move with calculated precision.  Is this a part of his plan?  We’ll have to wait to find out, but I’m happy to have Dean back safe and sound for now.  Stay tuned!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist. Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest. She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 13 episode 20: “Unfinished Business”

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:

5

“Bonus.”

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?

2

“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.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 13 episode 17: “The Thing”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 13 episode 17 last night, I learned that even when you think you can’t be redeemed, fear and regret can lead you to try to do the right thing against all odds.  That being said, there is always a catch…or Ketch involved.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Thing,” Sam and Dean are checking off their list of ingredients and are stumped by the Seal of Solomon, which causes them to track down a lead in Rhode Island.  Meanwhile, Ketch gets schooled by Asmodeus and makes the decision to turn the tables on him.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 13 episode 17 are:

5

Dean gets creative with Post-It notes.

Sam has been investing a lot of time in his research and falls asleep on top of a book, which inspires Dean to have a little bit of fun with him.  He carefully places post-it notes on the back of Sam’s shirt that read:  “Dum Dum,” “Kick Me”and“Ass face.”  Later on, Sam notices them in the mirror and is not amused, but Dean tells him they have other things to worry about now, but takes a moment to really appreciate his fine work.

4

“I love books!”

As a refresher, Sam and Dean need four ingredients to open the door to the other world that Mary and Jack are trapped in.  They begin making their list and checking it twice and are currently short two ingredients:  The Seal of Solomon and the grace from an Archangel.  Sam and Dean have been searching for information on the Seal of Solomon to no avail, which leads them to go through the archives which Dean finds very tedious.  They eventually come across information from the Men of Letters who apparently discovered Solomon’s treasure.  In the treasure is a “jewel of the cosmos,” which Dean refers to as “a piece of kryptonite.”  They decide to head off to Rhode Island to track down the lead in another hideaway from the Men of Letters, as this is the only lead they have.

“Kale is a garnish.”

When Sam and Dean stop in at a local diner in Rhode Island, Dean allows the waitress to bring him whatever is good.  Sam makes the healthier choice, however; and orders a type of Kale dish which disgusts Dean.  Sam begins talking about the importance of lowering his cholesterol.  Dean is impressed but explains that he is also “watching his cholesterol…watching it go way up.”

2

“It’s like a Hallmark movie…but with tentacles.”

After Sam and Dean go down to the underground Men of Letters bunker in Rhode Island, they find an unexpected guest.  A woman named Sandy Porter is being held captive, but has been there for almost a hundred years.  Sam and Dean are stumped by this but welcome her to the future just the same and let her know that they will protect her.  They need to quickly make good on their promise, as followers of the Men of Letters begin surrounding the diner.  After Sam is captured, he learns that Sandy died many years ago and the monster that fed on her inhabits her body.  Sam quickly realizes that Dean is in a lot of trouble as apparently all the monster does is “feed and breed.”  Luckily for Dean, Sandy chooses him as the host for her lover trapped in the other world.  Sam and the other Men of Letters rescue Dean with perfect timing and send the monster back to its world, closing the rift for good.

“What’s the catch?”

While Mr. Ketch tries to involve himself in Asmodeus’s plan, he quickly realizes that he is merely a servant in his eyes and not worth much at all.  Asmodeus tells Ketch that he sees that he is filled with fear, regret, and pain and that he can’t be redeemed.  He makes him feel even less when he simply tells him, “You’re mine.”  Mr. Ketch refuses to let this be his fate and makes the decision to break out Gabriel and bring him to Sam and Dean as a peace offering.  Sam and Dean are shocked to see Gabriel but are not about to turn Mr. Ketch away, especially since he possesses the last ingredient.  In return, Mr. Ketch wants protection from Asmodeus and “dibs on the top bunk.”  While Sam is hesitant, Dean quickly agrees and tells Sam that he and Mr. Ketch are going to go through the door alone.  Sam is left to hold down the fort and watch after Gabriel, but clearly doesn’t like the idea of letting his brother handle this on his own.  We know that the Winchester brothers are stronger together, but will this plan work the way Dean intends?  While I’m not sure they will be able to find Jack and Mary so easily, it seems like this is their only option right now.  What new threats will they find in the other world?  What will Sam encounter with Gabriel?  And it seems like we haven’t seen too much of Lucifer or Rowena lately, so you know that they will be re-surfacing sooner or later.  Let’s hope it’s not when the Winchester brothers are apart.
