Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 17: “Game Night”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 17, Jo reminded us that “we’re all lonely because we’re all alone.”  But does that mean we stop trying to make connections?  Castiel later pointed out that we’re not alone because we have each other, but what happens when the people we count on the most slip away from us?  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Game Night,” Dean gets a disturbing phone call from Donatello that interrupts Game Night with the family.  Meanwhile, Castiel tracks down Jo and asks for her help.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 17 are:

5

“I thought this was supposed to relax him.”

Dean is ready for a fun night with the family, but he gets a little bit too frustrated trying to put together the Mouse Trap game, which was absolutely hilarious.  I definitely shared his frustration, as I remember spending countless hours trying to do the very same thing.  However, this fun moment is interrupted when Dean gets a call from Donatello.  It’s clear that Donatello is in trouble and he needs to go check it out with Sam, so it looks like Game Night will be put on hold for now.

“I’m grateful for every day I get to spend with you and Sam.”

Mary is back in this episode and starts talking to Dean about being closed off, but that she’s here for them now.  Dean is very much like his mother so he understands, but I started to notice that Mary was really talking a lot about her feelings for her sons.  She has a brief heart-to-heart talk with both Sam and Dean, which made me wonder if this meant that something big was about to happen to her…

3

“I need your help to contact God.”

Castiel tracks down Jo, played by the wonderful Danneel Ackles, and asks for her help.  Castiel starts off by giving her a lovely set of earrings, but Jo realizes that something is up.  Castiel knows that Jo spent quite a bit of time with Joshua and that he had a connection to God.  Only God can restore Jack’s soul, but why didn’t Castiel inform Sam and Dean about this?  Jo hilariously comments on Castiel’s “lone wolf desperation,” but begrudgingly agrees to help him.  After tracking down the item they need, Castiel places a long distance call to God, but I’m not sure if he got the message.  Let’s hope so!

“Nobody stays dead anymore…you know that.”

After Sam and Dean try to track down Donatello, they discover that Nick is there waiting for them.  Nick is surprised when he doesn’t get a “hey, how you been” response, but what is his end game here?  We know that Nick is desperate for Lucifer to return to him, but how is Donatello connected?  Dean comments that Nick is “freakin coco puffs” and he’s not wrong, but that doesn’t make him any less dangerous.  After Jack threatens Nick, he agrees to give up Donatello’s location, but we discover that Nick wants to use Jack’s blood to communicate with a prophet to ultimately find Lucifer and bring him back.

“You need help…”

After Sam is severely injured by Nick, Dean contacts Jack and Mary for help.  They track down Nick and Jack is able to stop him before Lucifer takes over, but Jack takes it too far.  He burns Nick alive, killing him, despite Mary’s cries to stop.  Jack tries to rationalize his actions and does heal Sam, but Mary later confronts him about everything and tells him that he needs help.  Jack’s soul has clearly been damaged and he seems to be having trouble controlling his anger and powers.  Jack’s eyes begin glowing, as he tries to make everything stop and we get a major cliffhanger when he simply says, “Mary” at the end before the screen goes black.

It doesn’t look good for Mary here and her loving words to her sons earlier in the episode convince me that she is gone for good.  However, I can’t help thinking about how Nick reminded us that “nobody stays dead anymore” and he’s spot on.  However, it seems unlikely that both Nick and Mary will be returned to life so is there some other loophole here?  Jack has ultimately become even more dangerous and I’m not sure how he will face Sam and Dean now.  I’m sure that he will try to spin the story some other way, but it’s only a matter of time before the Winchesters ultimately need to face off against Jack before it’s too late.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 15: “Yeah I told him about the Cardigan”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 15, I learned that living in a picturesque town is not always as perfect as it may seem, but gee golly, I thought it was swell to see Sam Winchester in some glasses with a snazzy cardigan.  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Peace of Mind,” Sam and Castiel team up to investigate a case in Arkansas, as Sam is in desperate need of a distraction.  Meanwhile, Dean takes Jack on a field trip to go see our good pal, Donatello.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 15 are:

5

“I feel different now…not like before.”

After all of the chaos from last week’s episode, Jack seems to be coping well, but he recognizes that he doesn’t feel the same as before.  Jack has his wings back and may now be the most powerful being in the world, but killing Michael must have taken a toll on his soul.  Castiel is extremely worried about this, as Jack may not realize how important it is to maintain one’s soul.  What will be unleashed as a result?  We’ll have to wait and see, but the setup should not be ignored here.

“Like a ripe melon on the sun.”

Sam cannot sleep and wants to take on another case, but changes it up by going with Castiel.  I have to say that I absolutely love this duo together, as Sam and Castiel investigate a mysterious death involving Conrad’s head exploding.  They learn that Conrad was from the town of Charming Acres, which has a Pleasantville type feel or as Castiel comments, that he feels like they are “stepping into a Saturday Evening Post,” which Castiel finds very soothing before bedtime.  Good to know!  Sam and Castiel end up at Harrington’s diner and are urged to try one of their milk shakes.  I mean, who doesn’t love a good milkshake?  Castiel tries to strike up a conversation about the murder, but is a little bit too graphic with his description of a head exploding, as he hilariously tries to soften the blow by explaining it was “like a ripe melon on the sun.”  Love the effort, Cass!

“WWWD aka What Would the Winchesters Do?”

After chatting about Dean’s love for bacon, Dean takes Jack on a field trip to figure out how much of his soul is gone.  Jack is spending quite a bit of time with his new pet snake so perhaps a little time outside might be good for him.  Dean takes Jack to Donatello, understanding that Donatello will probably be able to sense whether or not Jack has a soul.  Donatello has a good talk with Jack and explains that he feels nothing and that “it’s an absence of pity, of empathy, of humanity.”  Jack still doesn’t really know how he feels and Donatello gives him some advice, explaining that he thinks about what Mr. Rogers would do when he is in doubt, which is the best man he knows.  Jack has no idea who Mr. Rogers is, but he does determine that Sam and Dean are the best men he knows, which is beyond touching.  However, all is not completely right, as Jack takes his empathy to another level, disintegrating his snake with his mind so that he can be in heaven with his previous owner, as Castiel watches from afar with concern.

“He has beautiful hair.”

Castiel recognizes that something goes wrong in Charming Acres, as Sam now thinks he is Justin from the town.  He completes his look with glasses, a cardigan, and his hair slicked back.  Castiel doesn’t know if Sam is under a spell or mind control, but he tries his best to get through to him, but Sam tells him that he is Justin Smith and warns Castiel to watch his mouth.  Sam tells his new wife to grab Castiel’s hat so he can leave, but Castiel hilariously explains that he doesn’t wear a hat.  Luckily, the mind control is broken and the mayor of the town is forced to reside in his own happy place within his mind.  I absolutely loved the interactions between Sam and Castiel here, which gave us some fun humor to break up the drama going on with Jack.  More of this please!

1

“This is my home.  This is our home.”

When Sam and Castiel return home, Sam is annoyed that Castiel told Dean about the cardigan, but I mean he really did pull it off well.  Sam says that the happiness there wasn’t real and confides in Dean that he keeps seeing Maggie and the others, as the guilt and grief overwhelms him at home.  Sam recognizes that he can’t keep running away; however, but will time really fix everything?  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 12: “Prophet and Loss”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 12, I realized that “if there’s a spark or hope, you have to try.”  Even if it seems impossible, sometimes you just have to keep trying for those around you.  They aren’t going to give up on you so maybe you shouldn’t give up either, Dean Winchester.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Prophet and Loss,” Sam and Dean go on one last case, but Sam is not ready to give up on his brother just yet.  Meanwhile, Nick continues to search for his purpose.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 12 are:

5

“I know you’re scared.”

In the beginning of the episode, Sam tries to talk with Dean, but Dean brushes off his feelings and says it doesn’t matter.  Only it does matter to Sam and it really should matter to Dean as well, but we know that Dean is not good at letting his emotions out.  However, he may not get the chance to tell Sam how he really feels if he is buried in a coffin alive…forever.  I can’t even imagine.

4

“One last case for the Winchester boys…”

Let’s hope not, especially since Supernatural has just been renewed for season 15.  Yay!  Luckily, the episode does not focus entirely on Dean’s morbid goodbye.  The brothers have a case and learn that the ancient language has been carved into victims, suggesting that there is a prophet connection here.  We quickly learn that there is a killer prophet, Tony Alvarez, on the loose, who was supposed to be next in line after Donatello.  After Tony takes his own life, Sam and Dean realize that they need to find out what is going on with the prophet line before it’s too late.

3

“You chose Lucifer.”

During the episode, Nick escapes the hospital and ends up returning home.  The ghost of his wife, Sarah, tries to get Nick to see the light, but all he desires is darkness.  Nick desperately wants Lucifer to return to him, suggesting that is what he has wanted this entire time.  The void inside Nick is not from missing his family, as he is too far gone to even really understand that he could help his wife’s spirit move on if he would just let go of Lucifer.  Nick is unable to do so, which suggests that Lucifer can’t be buried forever.  But when will he make his return?

2

“Mr. Winchester and the other Mr. Winchester.”

Castiel hilariously poses as a doctor, but still needs to work on his cover story.  But that’s why we adore him so much.  After Donatello wakes up, Castiel has a heart-to-heart talk with Dean and tells him that he won’t sit by and watch him execute this suicidal plan.  Castiel’s love for Dean is unconditional and it’s clear that he cares about him more than anything else in the world.  Dean is very stubborn, but he has to understand that he has friends and family members who will do anything for him.

1

“I believe in us.”

At the end of the episode, Sam refuses to take it anymore and tells Dean that “we’re the guys who save the world.  We don’t just check out of it.”  Sam feels like Dean is quitting on him and he puts everything out on the table, desperately trying to get through to his brother.  Sam even punches Dean, which shows how far he is willing to go.  Sam cannot keep his emotions bottled inside and his love for his brother is truly touching.  Dean finally agrees that he will try and find another way, but expects Sam to stick by his side if he does need to ultimately check out of this world.  I have to say that Jared Padalecki’s performance here was very moving, as he touched my heart and soul and even caused me to shed a few tears of my very own.  Now that Dean is back in the game, where do they go from here?  Rowena has been trying to find out information to no avail, but is there someone else out there who can help?  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.
