Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 13: “Who’s Been Playing Back to the Future?”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 13, I was so unbelievably happy with the 300th episode of this brilliant show.  The Winchester brothers have been through so much together and it often seems like they don’t really get a break.  However, this episode marked a milestone for the show and gave us the chance to see one of the most heartwarming moments of the entire series.  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Lebanon,” Sam and Dean stumble upon some occult items and realize that they have the opportunity to make one of their wishes come true.  While they could have never guessed what they would end up with, they quickly realize that there are consequences to altering timelines, but are they ready to go back to reality?  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 13 are:

“Baby, please tell me you’re not hurt…”

In the beginning of the episode, several teenagers are hilariously commenting on Sam and Dean’s presence and ask, “Where do they even come from?”  A girl named Max decides to take Dean’s beloved car for a ride, but it seems like the teens are just looking for some fun in a small town.  After tracking the teens down to an abandoned house at a party, Dean is beyond relieved to see that Baby is OK and so am I!  Either way, it was very funny to see the commentary on Sam and Dean and what they could possibly be up to now, which I thought was a fun and clever way to pay tribute to the fans who have been watching the Winchester brothers for 300 episodes.

“A serial killer clown…”

Poor Sam.  Sam and Dean quickly realize that the teens took the box of occult items out of the car and a “serial killer clown” is unleashed, which is beyond terrifying for Sam.  We know that Sam does just fine with serial killers, but a clown is an entirely different story.  I thought this was a fun throwback as well to some of the earlier episodes where we witness Sam’s overwhelming fear of clowns.  Maybe we needed to throw in a Yorkie chasing Dean to even the score, however.  Either way, it was a lot of fun and I was immediately drawn in to some SPN nostalgia.

“I don’t know that reference.”

During the episode, Sam and Dean discover that they have a pearl that will grant them their “heart’s desire.”  Dean wants to use it to cast Michael out of his head, but the pearl discovers something else that Dean has been longing for all this time.  However, while this wish takes place, it alters the Winchester’s timeline and we discover that Castiel no longer knows the Winchester brothers and he certainly doesn’t know any references either.  Zachariah, played by Kurt Fuller, is also alive and well, but immediately recognizes that someone has been playing “Back to the Future.”  Either way, I thought this was a fun guest appearance and it really made me think about how far Castiel has come with understanding pop culture references.  I mean, he did learn a lot from that pizza man…

“You run a law firm and love kale.”

As Sam and Dean discover that they have created a “temporal paradox,” they realize that they are also in danger of changing into these alternate timeline characters.  While Dean has his “Blue Steel” look down pat for his most wanted picture, Sam has become “internet famous,” although I have to say that I really liked Sam’s glasses.  I’m not so sure about the raw food diet, however.  Either way, the Winchester brothers realize that they have to change things back or they will face further consequences, but are they ready to say goodbye to who they summoned?

“One family dinner…all together.”

I tried to contain this spoiler as much as possible until we reached the number one moment, but I’m sure that you have already discovered that John Winchester has returned, played by the absolutely brilliant, Jeffrey Dean Morgan.  I mean, you can’t top this special guest appearance.  Happy 300th episode everyone!  When Dean wished for what his heart most desires, I almost fell off my couch when he asked, “Dad?” and John Winchester appeared on my screen.  I have been waiting to see John return for quite some time and we know that characters tend to not stay gone for long on this show even if they have died before.  After all, we have resurrection spells, characters returning from hell or purgatory, and characters in another dimension.  However, John Winchester has not been one of those characters to return, even though I have wished for it so many times before.

Even though Sam and Dean realize that they need to return everything as it was to keep their reality intact, they decide to have one family dinner all together.  The reunion between Mary and John was beyond beautiful and romantic, as I had tears in my eyes the entire time.  Sam finally got to talk to his Dad about their previous argument and Dean’s wish of having a family dinner all together came true, which was truly the most magical and heartwarming moment I have ever witnessed on the show.  Even though John could not stay, he reminded his sons to take care of each other and we know that they will continue to do so for the rest of time.  I was so incredibly moved by this episode and I couldn’t have asked for anything more to celebrate 300 amazing episodes with my SPN family.  Stay tuned!  New episodes return March 7th!

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!

“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.

“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!

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.
