Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 19: “Jack in the Box”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 19, I realized that innocence can be dangerous.  Good intentions can easily be manipulated or distorted and trusting the people you care about the most can help or hurt you.  But what happens when that trust is finally broken?  Do we give in to the emptiness or do we still try to find a glimmer of humanity buried within? Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Jack in the Box,” Sam and Dean try to honor Mary and have a meaningful discussion with other Bobby.  Meanwhile, Jack continues to be pestered by Lucifer and is tricked into doing “God’s work” by Duma.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 19 are:

5

“We’re so glad for the time that we had.”

In the beginning of the episode, Sam and Dean hold a memorial service for Mary and invite some of their hunter friends.  Dean talks about how they got a second chance with her and how they really got to know Mary as a person.  He explains that she was strong and stubborn as hell and also mentions that she really couldn’t cook worth a damn, but this moment was truly touching, as we see how many lives Mary influenced over the years.  However, the moment when Dean goes off by himself and is just seen crying was very powerful for me and caused me to shed a few tears of my own.  Dean always tries to be so strong for his friends and family, but when he is by himself, he finally allows himself a moment to truly mourn the loss of his mother.

4

“If his human side is gone, you know what’s left…Lucifer.”

Other Bobby makes an appearance at Mary’s memorial and takes out a monster who was lurking in the crowd, but please make sure he gets his hatchet back!  Bobby actually provides Sam, Dean, and Castiel with some great advice, as he reminds them about what they need to do.  Even other Bobby explains that he has a soft spot for Jack, but he understands that sometimes you need to do what is necessary for the greater good.  Dean seems all for this, but can Castiel and Sam follow along?  We know that they both have a strong connection to Jack and it may be more difficult for them to try and eliminate him, as they understand that he doesn’t fully comprehend his actions.

3

“It doesn’t have to be a dream.”

After Castiel fills Duma in about what’s going on with Jack, she takes this opportunity to use him to her advantage.  Duma is trying to secure her place as the leader of heaven and she manipulates Jack by telling him that Sam and Dean would want him to do God’s work.  However, Jack starts to take some passages from the bible too literally when he actually begins to make them come true.  I even had to turn away from the screen when the worms started eating that pastor from the inside.  Gross!  Jack still has so much naivete, but this is now dangerous because he doesn’t have a soul to truly think about the consequences of his actions.  Jack begins to make going to heaven a reality and he’s even making angels out of humans, which could become a very dangerous threat.

2

“They never loved you…”

Lucifer continues to exist within Jack’s mind and it doesn’t look like he is going anywhere.  Jack tries to tell him that he doesn’t want to listen to him, but Lucifer can be very convincing and he plays on Jack’s weaknesses.  He repeatedly tells Jack that he cannot trust the Winchesters and tries to get Jack to unleash the power within him.  Is Jack a greater threat than Lucifer?  I’m not sure, but it doesn’t help that he has him cheering in his mind’s corner at all times.

1

“I don’t know if I can do it.”

Dean recognizes that they cannot defeat Jack because he is so powerful, but he can be contained.  He circles back to the Ma’lak box, which he was going to use to trap him and Michael once upon a time.  Dean tells Sam that he needs to be the one to lie to Jack, but Sam is not sure that he can do this.  Jack trusts Sam so completely and Dean knows that he will do what he says, promising that they are working on some sort of spell to restore Jack’s soul even though this is not true.  Sam does what he has to and locks Jack inside, but his guilt is overwhelming him. 

Castiel eliminates Duma and tries to tell the Winchesters that Jack was tricked, but it’s too late.  The trust has been broken and Jack is actually able to tap into enough of his power to break free from the box with Lucifer’s support.  Jack stares at Sam, Dean, and Castiel with glowing eyes, suggesting that he has become something even more powerful.  Is there any way to stop Jack?  Stay tuned for the season finale next week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 18: “Absence”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 18, Dean reminded us that sometimes we get a “get out of jail free card,” but nothing is ever really for free and everything has its price.  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Absence,” Sam and Dean try to track down Jack and Mary with Rowena’s help and make a shocking discovery.  Meanwhile, Jack continues to be burdened by his guilt and receives a visit from an unlikely guide.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 18 are:

5

“You cannot come back from that.”

After the major cliffhanger last week, we catch up with Jack, who is having trouble processing his actions.  Jack is greeted by Nick…or Lucifer…or actually him in his subconscious.  Nick/Lucifer/Jack channels his inner Jiminy Cricket and acts as a sort of guide or conscience for Jack, but what direction is he really pulling him toward?  Jack desperately wants to find a way to make things right and bring Mary back, as he realizes that Sam and Dean may never forgive him, but can he really accept the consequences of his actions?

4

“They were never alone.”

Even though we find out that Mary Winchester is truly gone, we get to see her in a series of flashbacks done brilliantly in black and white sprinkled throughout the episode.  One of my favorite flashbacks featured her and Castiel when Mary first returned from the dead.  Castiel asks Mary if she is still afraid of him and it was interesting to see how much of an impact Mary made on each and every one of them.  Later in the memory, Castiel tells Mary how happy Sam and Dean are now that she has returned to them so they don’t have to be alone and she tells Castiel that they were never alone, truly appreciating how much Castiel has looked after Sam and Dean for so many years like family.

3

“Don’t even say her name.”

Once Sam and Dean begin to realize that something terrible has happened, Dean’s anger gets the best of him.  Castiel comes clean with Dean and explains that he knew that something was wrong with Jack and Dean says, “If he did something to her then you’re dead to me.”  Castiel tries to explain that he was scared and that he wanted to believe that Jack was good, which is understandable, but we know that Dean has gone through so much and has a beautiful bond with Mary.  It was heartbreaking to see this reaction, but I’m hoping that he will follow Mary’s lead and continue to try and do the right thing.  However, I constantly notice that Sam, Dean, and Castiel keep things from one another to protect them and it seems like Jack has picked up on this behavior as well.  Maybe it’s about time they begin to share everything with one another to avoid moments like this.

2

“Mary Winchester is no longer on this earth.”

Sam and Dean look to Rowena for help, but Jack has the same idea.  Jack tries so hard to make things right, but sometimes dead is just dead.  Rowena was absolutely fantastic in this episode and it was interesting to see her try and reason with Jack.  She could have tried to fight him, but she tries to get through to him, telling him that they all want the same thing, which really shows how far Rowena has come as a character.  However, it looks like it might be too late for Jack, as he fails to bring Mary back and he is left with his subconscious Nick/Lucifer/Jack telling him that he can no longer trust the Winchesters.  Is Jack too far gone or is there some way they can still reach him?

1

“She is happy.”

The most resonating moment for me was when we got to see Dean’s flashback of Mary.  It wasn’t a long conversation or some epic moment.  It was just the two of them driving back together with Mary sleeping on his shoulder.  I thought that this memory was so powerful and important, reminding us that it’s the series of little moments that truly count.  Even though Mary is gone, Castiel peeks in on her personal heaven and tells Sam and Dean that she is happy and at peace with John.  Mary Winchester is complete even though this may impact Sam and Dean for the rest of their lives, but at least she is not suffering.  I had tears in my eyes when the last scene of the episode focused in on the desk with Sam, Dean, and Mary’s initials all carved in the center of it, reminding us that this bond will never be broken and that they will see each other again one day.  Stay tuned!

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.

4

“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!

2

“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. 

1

“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 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!

Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 11: “It’s the Only Sane Play I’ve Got”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 11, I realized that sometimes we are faced with an impossible choice.  We always want to see the good in others and find another solution, but what happens when there is no other way?  Do we give up and support the ones we love or do we keep fighting and risk it all?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Damaged Goods,” Dean visits Donna and Mary, as he prepares himself for what’s to come.  Meanwhile, Nick continues to hunt down Abraxas and Sam is left with a difficult decision to make.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 11 are:

5

“Best burger ever.”

On the way to visit his mom, Dean stops to visit Sheriff Donna and it’s always wonderful to see her.  I absolutely love the friendship between these two and Donna quickly realizes that something is going on with Dean, but is he ready to let anyone in yet?  Either way, it’s nice to see these two reunite over a quick meal.

4

“Winchester Surprise.”

So what exactly is in the “Winchester Surprise” meal other than a lot of grease?  I’m not really sure, but I think it’s absolutely adorable that Dean remembers this meal and takes the time to reminisce with his mother, Mary.  Other than the greasy meal, Dean reminds her about getting some pie as well.  While this moment is sweet and heartwarming, it feels like a goodbye and Mary is completely aware that Dean is planning something, but it doesn’t seem like anyone will be able to talk him into a new plan, especially since Billie revealed so much to Dean about what his future holds.

3

“You’re a long way from Delaware, Nick.”

Nick is back in this episode and he is looking to track down Mary, learning that she faced Abraxas a long time ago.  In case you forgot, Nick discovered that the demon, Abraxas, was responsible for the death of his family.  After a run in with Donna, Nick tracks down Mary and she brings him to the box that she trapped Abraxas in.  Nick is clearly running on pure revenge at this point, but is he willing to destroy everyone in his path to get what he wants?

2

“Showtime.”

What’s in the box?  Meet Abraxas.  Abraxas is ready to reveal his motive to Nick, but asks him to kill Mary first.  Luckily, Sam and Dean show up before Mary is harmed, but Nick is not about to leave until he gets what he wants.  Abraxas reveals that he was just following orders, stating that Lucifer had set this plan in motion a long time ago.  This answer does not really satisfy Nick, but I’m not sure that anything would at this point, but is he too far gone?  Sam seems to want to still believe in him, but I’m not sure that there is any humanity left within Nick.

1

“It’s the only sane play I’ve got.”

At the end of the episode, we learn that Dean has been building a box to trap Michael in, but this means that he would be trapped inside along with him for eternity.  For those of you who predicted this alternate ending, congrats!  I want to give a special shout out to MsMoonshine on Quiz Up who predicted this theory in the Supernatural thread.  Way to go!  Sam is not initially on board with this plan, especially when he finds out that Dean will be trapped in the box in the middle of the ocean.  Dean explains that he initially didn’t tell Sam because he is the only one who can talk him out of it, but he is going through with the plan to save the world.  Sam agrees to help him, but is there another way?  Stay tuned!

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.

“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 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:

“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?

“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.

“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?

“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.

“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!
