Happy Friday TV fans! The weekend is almost here, but I find myself needing to discuss the mid-season finale of Supernatural before diving into any other shows. After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 13 episode 9 last night, I am wondering exactly where everyone is and I am most concerned for the Winchester brothers. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In last night’s episode, Sam and Dean are reunited with Jack, realizing that he is good after all. Dream-walkers are introduced into the mix and some familiar friends return to warn us that something wicked comes this way. Meanwhile, the angels are after Jack and will stop at nothing to capture him, but this doesn’t stop him from attending an addiction meeting along the way. My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 13 episode 9 are:
Jack attends an addiction anonymous meeting. He is there to find the dream-walker, but he needs to take a page from Sam and Dean’s book on how to come up with a convincing cover story. Kaia is a young dream-walker who is suffering from a drug addiction as she desperately attempts to escape “the bad place.” When she crosses paths with Jack, she asks why he is there and he enthusiastically responds with “cocaine!” Kaia later refers to him as “cocaine boy” which keeps the laughs coming, as she is no fool and realizes that he is absolutely something other-worldly.
Patience is back. I was thrilled at the introduction of psychic, Patience a few episodes back and was wondering if we would see her again. Luckily for the Winchester brothers, Patience has a vision and realizes that they are all in serious trouble. She makes a difficult choice when her father tells her she cannot come back if she decides to go down this route. Patience remains strong and realizes that she must embrace her destiny because it is the right thing to do. She knocks on Jody’s door to tell her that they are all in great danger, leaving fans trapped in a cliff-hanger that we are all anxiously waiting to see unravel. Either way, it is great to see Patience back and I am looking forward to the development of her character.
Jack is able to see Sam and Dean’s mother. While viewers have been able to see what is going on with Mary, Sam and Dean have been completely clueless regarding her well-being, fearing the worst. When Jack taps into the power of the dream-walkers, he is able to get close enough to see her through a door to another world. It is clear that Mary is in desperate need of rescuing, but now that Jack is there, how are they going to escape?
Jack tells Sam and Dean that they are his family. When Sam and Dean are riding in the car with Jack they express how worried they were that he would be looking for his father, Lucifer. This word strikes a confused look on Jack’s face as he explains that Sam, Dean, and Castiel are his family and that is why he was trying to do one good thing for them and find their mother. Although Jack is still very new to this world and his powers are alarmingly strong and dangerous, he possesses a child-like vulnerability and clearly does understand what family means, warming the hearts of us viewers in this touching moment.
Kaia and Jack send everyone through the open doors of worlds via dream-walking. While we know that Jack is in Mary’s world, Sam and Dean are somewhere else entirely, waking up inside an enormous foot-print of something otherworldly. Is this the danger that Patience predicted in her vision? Is this the “bad place” that Kaia feared? How will they get out of there and find one another? The mid-season finale leaves us with a lot of unanswered questions, but if there is one thing I’m certain of, it’s that Sam and Dean Winchester can escape the inescapable. It’s just a matter of how and when.
I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Supernatural below. Happy viewing!
