Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 2: “The Garden”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 2, I was reminded that “teamwork makes the dream work,” but oftentimes we still need to see things through on our own.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “The Garden,” we finally learn about the anomaly in the past and present. Octavia’s fate is revealed while we discover more about Hope and where she comes from.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 2 are:

5

“What took you so long?”

Well, apparently time is pretty relative in the anomaly. You can be in the anomaly for years and only be gone on Sanctum for about five minutes. This makes time travel seem like a piece of cake compared to this vortex of uncertainty.

The episode presents us with flashbacks from when Octavia went through the anomaly and also allows us to catch up with Echo, Gabriel, and Hope in the somewhat present or future? Yeah, I’m still piecing that together.

Either way, the beginning of the episode gives us some hope, (pun intended) as Octavia catches up with Diyoza and helps her while she is in labor. We get this heartwarming moment where Octavia sees Hope for the first time and it’s clear that there is an unbreakable bond between this unlikely family.

I’m glad to see that Diyoza is OK, although her present fate is still undetermined.

“What is it about Bellamy?”

A fair question for sure! Bellamy is just that guy that you can depend on. Even when he shuns you completely, you know that you must have done something to earn that. Bellamy is loyal and trustworthy. Octavia is focused on letting him know that she finally understands and Echo reminds us that she can kick a lot of ass to find him.

Seriously, Echo is becoming one of my favorite characters. I’m not sure when this happened, but I’m worried about her fate now.

We still do not know Bellamy’s fate, but I think it’s safe to say that if he has this many people asking about his well being, he’s probably OK. Besides, I’m still waiting for my epic Bellarke moment!!!!

3

“This is my way out.”

As we witness Octavia’s new life, we learn that she has really connected with Diyoza and Hope. Even though Bellamy will always be her family, she has another family now and Diyoza tries to remind her of this.

However, Octavia is still determined to find a way back to Sanctum to help and warn Bellamy. She tries to swim toward the light, but can’t hold her breath long enough to reach it. After finding a suit that may be able to help her, Diyoza sabotages the helmet.

Diyoza recognizes that Octavia or “Aunty O” is an important influence in Hope’s life and she doesn’t want to lose her.

Gotta say that “Blodreina” may have had a catchier ring, but Octavia can certainly rock “Aunty O” too!

2

“Welcome to Skyring.”

We have another planet in The 100 realm and it has a catchy name for sure. In somewhat present day, Echo, Gabriel, and Hope try to track down clues and learn that the anomaly may be a bridge between worlds.

We also find out about the scary guys chasing them who are named The Disciples.

But who are The Disciples and what do they want? It looks like we will have to wait a little longer to find out more information on them.

Hope casually mentions that they will have to wait five years before they can return, but Echo doesn’t think that’s an acceptable answer.

After Gabriel finds a potential code that will help them escape, a deranged man who has been living in Skyring destroys it because nothing can be easy on The 100.

We certainly got a lot of explanations surrounding the anomaly, but it looks like we still have a lot of mystery remaining.

1

“I understand…”

Once again, we witness the incredible and brilliant transformation of Octavia’s character. The girl under the floor has seen it all. She displayed strength then and went through an unimaginable loss when she watched Lincoln die in front of her.

After that, she trained until she became a fierce warrior and lost herself as Blodreina.

After trying to make amends, Octavia has finally found a peace within her. With Diyoza and Hope’s help, Octavia has finally released the darkness that was weighing her down, but she can’t fully embrace her true identity until she lets Bellamy know that she understands.

She writes this beautiful and moving letter to him, hoping that he will somehow see it one day. She says, “I wish I could see your face and tell you that I get it now.” Octavia recognizes that she might be old or dead by the time Bellamy sees the letter and tells him that she did find happiness and wants Bellamy to be happy too.

Octavia Blake has truly transformed over this series and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.

Now back to Sanctum in our next episode…

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 1: “From the Ashes”

Happy Thursday TV fans! The wait is over and the final season is here! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 1 season premiere, I was reminded that “none of this makes any sense, but my god, it’s incredible!” Our favorite characters may all be on new paths now, but as Indra hilariously pointed out: “new world…same problems.” 

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “From the Ashes,” Clarke is ready to put an end to violence on Sanctum, but has she really taken a moment to deal with her own grief? Meanwhile, Bellamy, Echo, and Gabriel deal with Hope and the anomaly.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 1 season premiere are:

5

“There’s never been an ex commander…”

Well, I suppose there is a first time for everything. Creepy Sheidheda may be gone from Madi, but so is the flame. Only Madi is not aware of that fact. Everyone is determined to keep up appearances so they can maintain the peace, but it’s only a matter of time before everything falls apart.

After all, this is The 100. Everyone assumes that Sheidheda is gone, but we know that he’s going to rear his creepy head again soon. Either way, it was nice to see Madi enjoying some normalcy in a real home with a dog.

I’m not sure that she can hold on to that childhood innocence for much longer though.

4

“To Abby.”

Everyone takes a moment to mourn the loss of Abby, but I’m not sure that Clarke has fully dealt with anything. Meanwhile, Murphy starts to develop a serious case of remorse, blaming himself for Abby’s death.

Raven reminds Murphy and Emori that they need to keep up appearances and pretend to be Primes which leads to a great performance from one of my favorite couples, but I’m not sure that everyone is buying it.

3

“Trust Bellamy.”

Of course we trust Bellamy, but Diyoza’s grown up daughter, Hope, reads this message as she enters Sanctum from the anomaly.

After Bellamy and Echo get separated, Echo shows off just how bad-ass she can be. I have to say that I am really liking her character development, but I still need her to move aside so I can finally have my Bellarke moment.

With the help of Gabriel and Hope, Echo takes down an invisible threat and the three of them head off into the anomaly to see if they can find Octavia.

The anomaly plot may be the most complicated one on the show, but my biggest question is:

Where are Bellamy and Octavia?

I just hope we don’t have to wait until the end of the series to see Bellamy reunited with Clarke…

2

“You take a breath and then another.”

That’s actually really great advice, Clarke, but “why are you protecting the man who killed your mother?” Clarke seems focused on putting an end to war and violence on Sanctum, but this is easier said than done.

Everyone wants Russell to burn, but Clarke keeps him alive. Only Russell continues to push some buttons when he hands Clarke her mother’s things, sparking her emotions and grief within her.

The 100 7 1 4 The CW

Clarke loses control and begins beating up Russell as she screams, “Is this what you want?” Meanwhile, creepy Sheidheda now has control of Russell and is clearly up to no good.

I can’t say that I really blame Clarke, but we now have a new problem…Sheidheda.

1

“Sanctum is free!”

Is it though? Clarke makes this big speech and declaration after her encounter with Russell. She says that Russell will burn for his crimes, as her friends watch in confusion. Clarke is going down a very dangerous path and I don’t think that her mother would approve.

Maybe we need Bellamy to get her back on track…

Either way, this was a jam-packed season premiere and I can’t wait to see how the show ends. I am really hoping we finally get a real and true Bellarke moment that I can ship. Fingers crossed!!!!!

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Affair” season 4 episode 2: “What are you doing in 5 months, 2 weeks, and 2 days?”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s The Affair last night, I learned that it is possible for people to change and that sometimes we need to realize when it’s time to let go.  That’s easier said than done, however; as we all have something we cling to from our past.  Whether it is a memory, a feeling, or something material, sometimes it’s enough to allow us to keep the past alive without it impacting our present and future.  But what happens when we can’t let something go?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “402,” Cole meets with new potential business partners and decides on whether or not to franchise “The Lobster Roll.”  Meanwhile, Alison is thriving at her new job at the Woodlawn Center and meets a heroic stranger who has the potential to spark a new romance in her life.  My top 5 moments from The Affair season 4 episode 2 are:

5

Luisa gets pulled over.

Part one of the episode opens up with Cole and we learn that he is still with Luisa, but that she is undocumented and unable to obtain her green card.  While living in a small town where everyone knows Cole has its advantages, Luisa runs into some unexpected trouble when she gets pulled over by a police officer when she is driving Cole home from the beach.  Luisa starts shaking in the car and Cole holds her hand, as he tries comforting her and letting her know that everything will be alright.  Luckily, the police officer gets another call that he needs to respond to and he lets Luisa off with a warning, but this scare is enough to bring her fears to the surface.  I found myself holding my breath in this moment as well, but I don’t think this is the last time that we will see a potential problem for Luisa.

4

“We’re not in high school anymore.”

Cole and Luisa are meeting with potential business partners and Alison is late for the meeting.  Alison is still Cole’s business partner, but he often feels like he is alone on this.  Alison finally makes it to the meeting, but Cole is not happy with her.  After the business partners leave, he asks Alison to “show up on time” and to “dry your hair.”  Alison is surprised by Cole’s focus on appearances and asks him, “Since when do you care so much what city people think?”  Times have changed, however; and Cole is right when he reminds her that they are not in high school anymore.  It seems like Cole is desperate to go back to the past, however.  He has a steady marriage to someone who truly loves him and the chance to make some real money, but Cole is still not happy.  Even though he made the decision to be with Luisa, it seems like some part of him will always be with Alison.  Will he ever be able to get over her?  Is there any chance that they can still make things work after so much time and so much pain caused by both parties?

3

“You can’t shoot someone just because they drew on your face.”

After Cole wanders off alone on the beach at night, he comes across some of the surfers he ran into earlier and decides to sit down with them.  Cole seems anxious to turn off his feelings anyway he can and zones out periodically, listening to the sound of the waves in the background.  When Cole wakes up on the beach, the kids are gone and he discovers that they drew all over his face.  Cole is furious, but Luisa makes light of the situation when she puts things into perspective.  Later in the episode, Cole comes face to face with one of the kids who did this to him and threatens to call the police, but the kid gives him an unwanted dose of reality when he reminds him that his brother sold him the first drugs he ever did.  It seems like Cole is unable to escape his past and reputation and is in desperate need of a fresh start.  But is he ready for this step?

2

“It’s also something you and I built together.”

In part two, we see everything from Alison’s perspective and view the conversation between her and Cole differently.  Alison seems ready to give up “The Lobster Roll” and reminds Cole that it was more of his brother’s dream than his.  Cole confides in Alison and reminds her that it’s something they built together, revealing that he is still trying to hold on to something from the past.  Alison seems ready to move on, but Cole is unable to break this hold she seems to have over him.  While it appears that Alison is ultimately going to pursue someone else romantically, the feelings between Alison and Cole are still present underneath the surface, but nothing stays buried for long.

1

“What are you doing in 5 months, 2 weeks, and 2 days?”

In part two, we get a glimpse into Alison’s new life and I have to say I am so proud of her.  Ever since I began watching the show, Alison reminded me of a wounded bird in desperate need of rescuing.  The pain brewing inside her was so real and painful to watch and I couldn’t help but be sympathetic toward her.  Alison relied heavily on actions of self-destruction, addicted to numbing the pain anyway she could, but times have really changed and it seems like completely immersing herself into her memories of Gabriel have been the key to getting her back on the right track.  Alison does peer-to-peer counseling at the Woodlawn center and seems to really be making a difference with the people she is counseling.  Alison is even strong enough to keep a photo of Gabriel right next to one of Joanie, which proves that she is finally dealing with the past in a healthy and acceptable way.  Alison meets a dashing stranger named Ben who used to serve in the military and sparks are immediately detected between these two.  When Alison is violently confronted by the husband of her patient, Ben comes to her rescue and saves her.  This leads to a long conversation over a cup of coffee where Alison learns quite a bit about Ben and is intrigued by his commitment to staying sober and abstinent.  It seems like they both have complicated pasts, but are ready to move on.  Ben explains that he wants to meet someone where he doesn’t need to get wasted because he won’t want to miss any of it and Alison tells him she thinks that he is fascinating.  After saying goodbye to Alison, he later calls her on Skype and asks her what she is doing in “5 months, 2 weeks, and 2 days,” recognizing that Alison is certainly worth the wait.  It seems like Alison finally has the chance at a healthy relationship, but I can’t help wondering if the mystery surrounding her possible disappearance has to do with Ben?  We will have to stay tuned to find out, but I am very excited to see this new romance unfold for Alison.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 13 episode 21: “Beat the Devil”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 13 episode 21 last night, I learned that enemies can easily become unlikely allies when they have something valuable to offer.  While Lucifer may be the devil himself, his fondness for “Sammy,” helps the Winchester brothers out of quite the jam, but is everyone truly ready to make a deal with the devil?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Beat the Devil,” Gabriel’s archangel grace is tapped out, leaving only one other option on the table.  Rowena and Gabriel grow closer and execute Sam’s plan to capture Lucifer so they can get back into the rift to finally rescue Jack and Mary.  While Lucifer is captured, he tries to break Rowena, leading to his own ticket into the rift.  A tragic moment puts Dean on edge, but he is finally reunited with his mother.  This is not the only family reunion in the cards, however; as Jack comes face to face with his father, Lucifer.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 13 episode 21 are:

5

“Pep talks and melodrama.”

In the beginning of the episode, Rowena attempts to cast the spell to open the rift with Gabriel’s grace, but his performance is “premature,” as it is unable to hold the rift open.  Gabriel’s grace is clearly tapped out and everyone realizes that they need Lucifer to keep the rift open.  While this is no one’s first option, they don’t have any other choice.  While Sam, Dean, and Castiel try to come up with a plan, Rowena comically comments that they are like “the three amigos” and explains they will be a while with their “pep talks and melodrama.”

4

“We were just reading books.”

While they are waiting to hear the plan, Gabriel and Rowena suddenly realize that they are attracted to one another and decide to have an adventure of their very own behind the bookcase.  When Sam, Dean, and Castiel return, they are beyond shocked and disturbed.  While it’s clear that they were not just reading books, Dean doesn’t want to hear the details and tells them that Sam has a plan.  While Gabriel later comments that he can “cross having sex with a 300 year old red-head off his bucket list,” these two actually have a lot in common.  Will it be a one-time fling or is there a romance in the cards for Rowena?

3

“All the people I love to torture in the same room.”

Lucifer is drowning his sorrows at a bar, confiding in the bartender about his problems with his son.  It seems like Lucifer is no longer concerned with heaven or hell and has focused all of his energy on Jack.  After he starts to get a little woozy, the bartender is revealed to actually be Gabriel who puts his trickster skills to good use along with a “magical roofie.”  After Rowena makes her entrance, Lucifer comments, “I killed you too.”  The plan is a success and they hold Lucifer captive so that they can keep his grace on tap to ensure the rift stays open.  While we know that it’s impossible to keep Lucifer detained forever, everyone heads into the rift and Rowena stays behind to “babysit” Lucifer.

2

“Step into my office.”

While Lucifer is being held captive, he puts his best effort forward to break Rowena and tries to hit a nerve.  He compares her situation to the “woman staying home in the kitchen,” while the boys go to handle the real work, but Rowena stays strong, refusing to give him the satisfaction of upsetting her.  When this doesn’t work, Lucifer resorts to some off key singing that is beyond annoying, but Rowena keeps her cool.  Lucifer finally strikes a nerve when he brings up killing her and Rowena tries to bring him down by telling him that his son considers Sam, Dean, and Castiel to be his real family.  Lucifer channels his anger and is able to break free.  He wounds Rowena and she deflects him with her magic into the rift in self-defense.  While this is clearly the last thing anyone wants, Rowena has second thoughts about leaving the Winchester brothers to fend for themselves and gets to work by opening her spell book to come up with something to help.

1

“Hey Sammy.”

When Sam, Dean, and Castiel go through the rift, they wind up in a different entrance again and need to make their way to Dayton.  They help some strangers who are being attacked by starved vampires on the way and learn that the quickest way to Dayton is through a tunnel filled with these monsters.  Sam is brutally attacked and dragged off, as Dean screams out to him.  Castiel goes after him, but explains that it is too late and that Sam is gone.  Dean is barely able to process what has just happened, but keeps on going.  When he finally reunites with his mother, Mary, a single tear falls down Dean’s face, which is beyond heart-breaking.  Lucifer’s entrance through the rift proves to be useful after all, as he brings Sam back to life.  Sam knows that he wants something in return and is afraid to hear what he has to say.  Lucifer merely explains that “I want what you already have.  A relationship with my son.”  Sam is initially confused by this, but Lucifer further explains that he wants Sam to tell Jack that Lucifer is responsible for saving him, so that Jack can be grateful toward Lucifer and begin to feel something for him.  Sam begrudgingly accepts since the alternative is to get eaten by vampires yet again, but everyone is beyond shocked when Lucifer walks into the camp with Sam, finally getting the family reunion he was so desperately longing for.  Will Jack accept him?  While we know that Lucifer will come in handy in the fight against Michael, what else does he secretly have planned?  The devil can never be trusted, but it looks like the Winchester brothers do not have a choice at this point.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 13 episode 19: “Funeralia”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 13 episode 19 last night, I learned that redemption is possible for everyone and that it’s never too late to do the right thing.  We sometimes just need someone to believe in us and then the rest is up to us.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Funeralia,” Sam and Dean reach out to Rowena for some help but are politely turned down due to her other engagements.  Meanwhile, Cas visits heaven and tries to get some reinforcements but is in for a surprise.   My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 13 episode 19 are:

5

“She’s right you never go to parties.”

In the beginning of the episode, Sam and Dean are trying to figure out what their next move is especially since Gabriel walked out on them, declining to join the team.  Rowena seems like the next best option to help them get to Mary and Jack, but she is otherwise engaged when they reach out.  Rowena overhears Castiel and asks if the “handsome angel is there,” to which Castiel mechanically responds with, “um hello.”  After hearing a lot of background noise, the Winchester brothers quickly realize that Rowena is at a party.  She hangs up on them before they can get more information out of her and she proves that a passionate tango dance can be hotter than you think when she literally burns a woman alive at the party.

4

“She started taking me to the light.  It didn’t work out.”

After Sam and Dean realize where Rowena is, they decide to head out there to deal with her in person.  They get an uninvited guest in the back seat of their car, however; when Jessica the reaper makes an appearance.  Jessica explains that she is there to act as a sort of “baby monitor.”  She has been listening in and keeping an eye on the Winchester brothers for quite some time now, but only just decided to show up now to offer herself as a resource in this case.  Sam and Dean are suspicious about this, but listen up all the same.  They learn that people have been dying outside of their assigned timeline and that their reapers have been killed as well.  While Sam and Dean now understand the reaper’s invested interest in this, they still need to find out why Rowena is doing this.

3

“Have you ever heard of the butterfly effect? 

Dean of course eagerly replies with, “Ashton’s second best movie,” which keeps the laughs coming even when literally faced with Death himself…or herself now.  The reaper explains that Billie, now known as Death, is not getting involved directly, but has clearly taken notice of Rowena’s actions.  She explains that if reapers continue to die along with people outside of their timeline, it will cause a ripple effect and throw off the grand design.  If this continues much further, Jessica thinks that the slate will need to be wiped clean and that the world would need to start over, which is not what anyone wants.  Jessica reveals an important piece of information when she lets Sam and Dean know that Rowena’s ultimate death will be by Sam’s hand.  There is no other alternative version, which puts a lot of responsibility on Sam and also places him in danger at the same time.

2

“It’s a sports term like slam dunk.”

As Castiel shows off his knowledge on the usage of the term, “Hail Mary,” he thinks that the angels may be able to help them even though approaching them can be extremely dangerous.  Castiel goes up to heaven and the angels think that perhaps they can help each other.  They offer him a deal and explain that he must bring up Gabriel and then they can help.  Castiel tries to clarify that this will not work, but it is later explained to him that heaven is running out of power and that there are barely any angels left to keep it running.  It is revealed that Gabriel could be the key to preventing this from happening.  It looks like everyone desperately needs Gabriel’s help, but will he come to his senses and do the right thing?

1

“Sometimes life is unfair…some things just are.”

After learning that Sam will be responsible for her ultimate undoing, Rowena holds him captive and threatens to end his life.  Billie finally appears before her and Rowena demands for her to bring back her son, Crowley from the dead.  Rowena is clearly still in a lot of pain over her son’s death and feels that it was unjust and cruel.  Even though she is in the wrong with her actions, her vulnerability in this moment is heartfelt.  After Billie tells Rowena that she will not be blackmailed, Rowena cannot follow through and kill Sam.  Billie tells her that she knew she would never kill Sam, which shows how far Rowena has come.  Rowena truly has loyalty and some love toward Sam and even though she knows he will kill her in the end, she still can’t take his life.  Rowena still has the chance to be redeemed and agrees to help Sam and Dean.  They warn her that Lucifer is still around, but Rowena tells them she is no longer afraid of him.  After all, Sam is now the greater threat.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 13 episode 13: “Devil’s Bargain”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 13 episode 13 last night, I learned that it is possible to go from a homeless beggar to the king of heaven within 24 hours.  Seems impossible, right?  Well not for our favorite foe, Lucifer, who will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Devil’s Bargain,” Sam and Dean are thrilled to have Castiel back, but they are still not any closer to finding their mother, Mary and Jack.  An unlikely frenemy approaches them and is not to be trusted but it looks like they will all need to work together in order to hunt down Lucifer.  Meanwhile, Lucifer finds a new “gal pal” in Sister Jo who is a better business woman than an angel, played by Dean’s wife in real life, Daneel AcklesMy top 5 moments from Supernatural season 13 episode 13 are:

5

Lucifer begs for money.

After his encounter with Castiel, Lucifer is still weakened and is seeking out a never-ending supply of grace wherever he goes.  He even takes out Cupid without a hint of remorse, leaving his lifeless corpse for the Winchester brothers to find later on.  In his weakened state, Lucifer realizes that he is hungry but doesn’t have any money on him.  He takes a cue from a nearby homeless man and tries his turn at begging for money but learns that he doesn’t really have the right vibe for this.  The homeless man explains that he comes across too forceful and aggressive and takes Lucifer for a snack out of a dumpster.  Talk about hitting rock bottom.  Perhaps Lucifer can learn a valuable lesson from the kindness of strangers.

4

The miracles of Sister Jo.

Daneel Ackles, Jensen Ackle’s wife in real life has joined the cast and is making quite the impression on Lucifer.  As an angel, she was considered lower level and had a monotonous responsibility that had her aspiring for more.  On earth, she puts her skills to work and finds out that she is an excellent business woman.  She heals people for money, performing miracles on a daily basis, but perhaps her most impressive skill is her ability to manipulate Lucifer.  Lucifer initially wants to drain Sister Jo of her grace, but she convinces him to keep her grace on tap, taking what he needs a little at a time so he can get to his full strength, which also keeps her alive.  She double crosses Castiel and the Winchester brothers and stands by Lucifer’s side, proving to be a worthy opponent for sure.

3

Ketch is back…again.

It seems like Sam and Dean cannot get rid of Mr. Ketch no matter how hard they try.  They cross paths with him again and learn that they have a common goal of taking out Lucifer.  Ketch eagerly suggests a team effort but this is not to Castiel’s liking, who instantly knocks him out with the tap of his finger as the Winchester brothers throw him in the back of their trunk for safe-keeping.  While they recognize that they need to find out what he knows, they all come to the consensus that he should be discarded afterwards.  Ketch comes in handy later on, however; saving the Winchesters from Lucifer’s wrath, but they still don’t trust him just yet.  While Mr. Ketch is resourceful, we know what he is capable of and the brothers are right to be cautious.

2

Lucifer reads the bible.

When Lucifer is hiding out in a motel with Sister Jo, he takes on some light reading of the bible.  Lucifer comically asks “does anybody fact check this stuff?”  While Lucifer doesn’t seem to think they got it all right in the bible, he is intrigued by it.  He even then comments about how God stole some of his best lines, continuing to read through his life story for some entertainment.

1

“Hail to the king…baby.”

Lucifer gathers a group of angels and tries to make a deal with them, offering to run heaven for them.  He even sweetens the deal by telling them he can get their wings back, which seems to be the right leverage.  Lucifer recognizes that he cannot obtain all this power and be on his own, which hasn’t worked for him in the past.  He needs committed soldiers who will follow his every whim.  But what about an archangel?  At the end of the episode, we learn that Gabriel is alive and being held captive.  Could he be the key to finding Jack and Mary?  Will he be able to stop Lucifer?  What is his connection to the tablets?  We will have to wait until March 1st 2018 for new episodes to return, but it’s clear that the Winchester brothers are not out of the woods just yet with all these new threats coming into power.  Stay tuned!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Supernatural  below.  Happy viewing!
