What to Watch on TV this Fall: The 2019 Fall TV Premieres I am Most Excited For!

Greetings TV Fans!  As we enter into the Fall season, some of our favorite shows will be returning with new episodes and we can also look forward to some brand new shows as well that seem to have a lot of potential.  Looking to find out when they all start and where to watch them?  You came to the right place!

While some of our favorite returning shows already have 2019 premiere dates announced, others are still giving out a late 2019/early 2020 vague response, but it looks like we have plenty of shows to watch in the meantime!  Without any further delay, the 2019 Fall TV premieres I am most looking forward to are:

American Horror Story: 1984 (Season 9)

AHS 9 10 1

Premiere date: Wednesday, September 18th 2019

Welcome to Camp Redwood!  Who doesn’t love the 80’s?  The ninth season of AHS looks like it is going to provide us with a lot of slasher fun and nostalgia.  While Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will not be on the newest season (sigh), we do have some fan-favorites returning, including the wonderful and brilliant Emma Roberts.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Season 14)

I mean, who doesn’t love laughing along with our friends from Paddy’s Pub?  The gang is back and I can’t wait to see what schemes they come up with next.  After Mac’s moving dance performance, anything is possible!  Perhaps another Charlie Kelly episode?  There is plenty of Charlie work to go around after all.

Evil (New Series)

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely down to watch another show with Luke Cage’s Mike Colter, but it looks like he will be trading in his super hero strength in order to investigate demonic possessions and other supernatural threats.  I’m in!

Light as a Feather (Season 2, Part 2, episodes 9-16)

Light as a feather…stiff as a board.  I never get tired of hearing that and I’m hoping that the second half of season 2 can bounce back and provide us with some spooky haunting fun.  This show is extremely addicting and there are constantly new twists and turns so I personally can’t wait!

The Walking Dead (Season 10)

TWD 9 10 1

Where to watch: AMC

It’s time to silence the Whisperers once and for all, but what threats will emerge next?  As we approach season 10, we know that this will be Michonne’s last season, but what does that mean for her character?  I can’t wait to find out!

Riverdale (Season 4)

Nancy Drew (New Series)

Premiere date: Wednesday, October 9th 2019

Where to watch: The CW

It looks like I will be busy on Wednesday nights indefinitely!  Nancy Drew is one of my favorite book series of all time and this new series looks like a dark and grown up version, giving me some Riverdale and Pretty Little Liars feels right off the bat.  I’m in 100 percent!

Supernatural (Season 15) *Final Season*

SPN 9 10

Premiere date: Thursday, October 10th 2019

Where to watch: The CW

How will it all end for the Winchesters?  After that cliffhanger ending in season 14, it looks like our favorite hunters have a lot of work to do, but luckily they have some backup in our favorite angel, Castiel.  What can we expect for the final season?  I’m not sure, but I would love to see some fun nostalgia sprinkled in with some returning guest stars.  It will be beyond difficult to say goodbye, but I know that the series will end the way it is intended to and I’m looking forward to watching these final adventures with Sam and Dean.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Breaking Bad 9 10

Premiere date: Friday, October 11th 2019

Where to watch: Netflix (to be released at a later date on AMC)

So I initially didn’t think to put this on the list since it is technically a movie, but how can I leave out one of my favorite series of all time?!  Jesse Pinkman is back and Breaking Bad fans everywhere can rejoice, as we finally get to find out what happens next in the story!

The Purge (Season 2)

Premiere date: Tuesday, October 15th 2019

Where to watch: USA Network

What happens on Purge Night doesn’t necessarily stay on Purge Night.  I love The Purge movies and when I first heard about the television series last year, I really didn’t go into it with high expectations.  Well I was in for a huge surprise, as this show became one of my favorite series of the year.  It’s fast paced, surprising, and a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see what happens in season 2 as we follow a brand new group of characters.  Are you ready, citizens?

Castle Rock (Season 2)

Premiere date: Wednesday, October 23rd 2019

Where to watch: Hulu

The Stephen King anthology series was another bone-chilling and haunting surprise for me last year and I have been waiting quite some time for a premiere date announcement for season 2.  Well it looks like we are in luck, as new episodes will return right before Halloween, which certainly seems fitting.  It looks like we will follow a new story and a new group of characters in the mysterious town of Castle Rock, but I am hoping to get some Easter eggs or connections to season one.  We shall see!

Shameless (Season 10)

Premiere date: Sunday, November 10th 2019

Where to watch: Showtime

We said goodbye to fan-favorite, Fiona Gallagher for good last season, but can season 10 keep the Gallaghers relevant?  Let’s hope so!  While I am disappointed that Fiona will no longer be on the show, it looks like we will need to turn our attention to Lip, especially now that he is going to be a father.  The laughs never fail on one of my favorite series of all time and I can’t wait to see what the Gallagher family does next!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to comment on any TV Premieres that YOU are looking forward to watching in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

My performance of the week ending 4/27/19 on TV goes to…

Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Alexander Calvert, and Misha Collins as Sam, Dean, Jack, and Castiel on Supernatural. I was absolutely blown away by their performances in the season 14 finale and I have to give the performance of the week to all four of these amazing actors because they really pulled out all the stops.  The season finale left us with a major cliffhanger and SPN fans everywhere are wondering what the final season will look like, but I have to take a moment to talk about the growth of some of our favorite characters and the incredible performances of the cast.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.

Let’s start with Sam.  Jared Padalecki is always so brilliant and Sam has really been making me cry lately.  I love that Sam always tries to see the good in everyone.  He knows that he needs to make difficult decisions, but they continue to weigh on him, which makes me connect so much to his character.

Dean has been through so much in season 14 and he has shut down on more than one occasion.  However, Dean has a truly significant moment in the season finale when he decides not to follow through with eliminating Jack.  Unlike Sam, Dean is always prepared to do what is necessary and he seems to be first in line to sacrifice himself even when he should stop and think for a moment, playing the role of big brother.  However, Dean truly takes a minute to think about his actions, as he also considers what his mother may think, which really helped develop his character even more.  Jensen never disappoints!

Castiel has grown so much from his first appearance on the show and Misha Collins continues to impress me with his portrayal of Cass.  Sure, Castiel may bring on the laughs, but he also wants goodness to prevail, refusing to give up hope even when it seems like all hope is gone.  Castiel’s father-son relationship with Jack is so beautiful and real and I think it has really made such an incredible impact on his own character, realizing what life is all about.

When Jack lost his soul, my heart broke because there has always been such an innocence and naivete to Jack, played brilliantly by Alexander Calvert.  Jack’s spiral into darkness is that much more heartbreaking because of this, especially when we know that Sam, Dean, and Castiel are his real family.  When Dean points the gun at Jack, he tells Dean that he understands, which is such an important moment for him.  Even though Jack feels empty and different, he knows what his family has to do and he accepts his fate, proving that he is still capable of so many great things, but we’ll have to see if his fate is sealed or not.

What’s next for our favorite characters?  I’m not sure, but I can’t wait for season 15 to premiere.  It will be bitter sweet for me, as I have grown up watching these characters and I consider them to be a part of my own family.  While I always knew that the show would one day come to an end, it doesn’t make it any less heartbreaking.  However, the show will also live on for me and I will continue to be thankful for witnessing such incredible performances over the years.  I can’t wait to see how it all ends!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 20: “Welcome to the End”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 20 season finale, I realized that stories can be dangerous, but what happens when the story is over?  When there’s no glimmer of light left to maintain that last bit of hope?  Can we write our own story or is the end clear cut?  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Moriah,” Sam and Dean are visited by an old friend, who claims he just wants to help, but does he?  Meanwhile, Jack’s powers continue to impact the world and Castiel tries to get through to him before it’s too late.  My top 5 moments from the Supernatural season 14 episode 20 season finale are:

5

“Takes one to know one.”

In the beginning of the episode, Sam and Dean try to track down Jack using every resource they can find and Dean comments that he is surrounded by nerds.  However, Sam gently reminds him that he does watch Jeopardy every single night.  I do too, Dean!  I thought this was a clever way to keep a little bit of humor going, as there were so many dramatic and serious moments during the season finale.  Glad to see that Dean is a nerd at heart for sure!

4

“It’s everywhere…”

Jack’s powers continue to spiral out of control, as he demands that everyone stop lying, which causes the entire world to spill the truth about everything.  This can be extremely dangerous, especially when we learn that Sam’s favorite music artist is actually Celine Dion, not Elvis.  Even the president’s lies are being revealed and Crowley gets a special shout out, when we learn that he actually made a deal with him once upon a time.  Sam, Dean, and Castiel recognize that Jack must be behind this, but it looks like they may need some extra help to stop him.

3

“You’re my favorite show!”

Surprise…God, aka Chuck, is back!  It looks like Castiel’s long distance phone call actually worked, as Chuck makes an appearance to help the Winchesters deal with the Jack situation.  Chuck fixes the lying issue with a snap of his fingers, but his solution for Jack is much more complicated.  Chuck presents them with a gun, but he is still working out its name.  Personally I liked “The Equalizer.”  Chuck explains that the gun will work in some kind of quantum leap way and eliminate Jack, but Dean breaks it down and says, “You kill him…you die.” 

So who is going to be the one to shoot him and is there any other way?  Castiel wants Chuck to help restore Jack’s soul, but Chuck reminds him that souls are tricky and messy, so it looks like they may not have a choice.  Sam refuses to accept this and asks Chuck why it always has to fall on them.  Chuck reveals that Sam and Dean are his favorites, but they are much more than a story, as this is life to them.  Is Chuck actually helping or is he about to cause even more damage now with his intervention?

2

“I understand.”

Castiel finally reaches Jack and the two sit down to have a father-son talk.  Jack reveals to Castiel that he feels empty and that if he were able to love, he would love him.  Before Castiel can get much further, Dean approaches them with Chuck’s gun, but Castiel and Sam try to stop him.  Jack faces Dean and simply says, “I understand,” recognizing Dean’s decision and what this means, which was absolutely heartbreaking.

Sam tries to get Dean to listen to reason, revealing that perhaps they are only playing out parts in Chuck’s story.  Dean puts the gun down, which frustrates Chuck, who tries to convince him to shoot Jack, promising that he will bring back Mary.  This moment was truly significant for Dean because we know how much Dean loves his mother and he would do anything for her, but even he recognizes that this is not right and that Mary would not want him to do that.

1

“Welcome to the end…”

After Dean turns Chuck down, Sam reminds him that “this isn’t just a story, it’s our lives.”  Chuck replies with, “Have it your way” and begins killing Jack.  Sam shoots Chuck, which stuns him and he officially welcomes them to the end.  The sun is gone and Sam, Dean, and Castiel are surrounded by darkness, as they lean over Jack’s lifeless body.  Jack wakes up in the Empty and Billie is there, so does this mean that perhaps this is not the end for Jack?  Is Jack able to help or intervene somehow?  I’m not sure, but we’ll have to wait and see.  Sam, Dean, and Castiel have a lot to deal with as well, as the souls from hell are released upon the world.  The last scene shows the undead surrounding them, as they all grab a suitable weapon, but they are definitely outnumbered here.

So what does this mean for our favorite characters?  We will now be approaching the final season of SPN and anything goes.  If all the souls have been released from hell, does that mean we could see Crowley in the final season?  We know that Chuck is a storyteller, but what does this actually accomplish?  Is he so fed up with his favorite characters that he is willing to sacrifice the world and start over?  Is he threatened by Jack?  I’m not sure, but it looks like Sam, Dean, and Castiel have a lot to deal with.  Stay tuned for the final season of Supernatural and in the meantime, “Carry on my Wayward son!”

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Supernatural in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

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!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Supernatural in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

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.

“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 16: “Don’t Go in the Woods”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 16, I remembered that I will never go in the woods pretty much ever.  I’m not a fan of camping or hiking as it is and I’ve seen enough scary movies to convince me to stay far away from the woods after dark and this episode continued to reinforce that fear.  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Don’t Go in the Woods,” Sam and Dean investigate a case at Big Creek State Park in Iowa after a girl is brutally attacked by an “animal.”  Meanwhile, Jack is given a mission of his own and meets up with Max and some of her friends.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 16 are:

“My mission is shopping.”

Sam and Dean decide that it may not be the best idea to have Jack tag along on their case right now since he has been going through quite a lot and they don’t really know if they can trust his powers just yet.  However, Jack gets his own special mission, as Dean provides him with a very important shopping list for supplies, which includes beer, listed twice.  I mean, it is pretty important, but I started to wonder what Jack would do for ID and it’s funny how this came up later on.

“The Ghostfacers are cool.”

So, I am a Supernatural fan for life and I love any excuse to mention the Ghostfacers.  I was extremely excited to see a fun cameo from them in this episode.  When Jack heads out on his important shopping mission, he runs into Max and some of her friends on the way.  As a reminder, we saw Max and her friends in episode, “Lebanon,” earlier this season.  One of Max’s friends is watching a video on his phone of the Ghostfacers and Jack says he has never heard of them.  We get to see a quick clip of them saying, “Winchesters still suck ass though,” which is absolutely hilarious.  I’d love to get another full Ghostfacer episode for sure and you can’t help loving their catchy theme song, which you can listen to here!

Max and her friends tell Jack that they know about the whole hunting thing and Jack tries to play it off by asking, “What’s a ghost?”  Jack is relieved that they know about everything and it looks like he may get the chance to actually hang out with some kids his own age.  Then again, he is only two…twenty…two.

“I can fix this.”

It initially seems like Jack is fitting in with his new group of friends, as he is extremely excited to invite them into the world of demons and monsters.  Jack even shows off his abilities and is asked:  “Dude, are you like a Jedi or something?”  However, as this started, I began to worry that Jack was not in control of his powers and that the impact on his soul would prevent him from knowing where the line is.  After Jack went a little bit crazy with the angel blade, one of the girls is accidentally stabbed.  Jack is able to heal her, but his new friends tell him to stay away.  Is Jack truly dangerous?  I don’t think that Jack has bad intentions, but losing part of your soul and not understanding right from wrong is not something to be taken lightly, especially since Jack may be the most powerful being in the world right now.

“We hunt these things.”

As Sam and Dean investigate the case further, they realize that they may be dealing with a Kahunta.  It means whistler and the Kahunta can certainly carry a creepy tune, which sort of reminded me of a darker version of Negan’s whistle from TWD.  The sheriff in town seems to know a lot more than he is initially letting on and we find out that the Kahunta was actually made.  It’s a curse and the being would always be starving unless he fed, but if he failed to, he would then be forced to feed on himself.  The Kahunta is definitely not a looker and even has this burning type of ooze that drips from his mouth, which had my stomach turning.  Sam and Dean work with the sheriff to stop him once and for all, but the sheriff tries to ask them why they don’t just tell people that monsters exist.  Sam and Dean explain that knowing about monsters and fighting them are two different things and that people still ultimately die.  I thought this moment was important and relevant, especially since it connected to what Jack is dealing with right now.  Luckily, teamwork ends up panning out here and the Kahunta is taken out once and for all.  “Gesundheit!”

“It was crappy of us not to tell you.”

After the encounter with the sheriff, Sam and Dean realize that they need to be honest with Jack about their concerns.  Sam and Dean come clean with him and tell Jack that he deserves the truth.  Jack says he understands and won’t use his powers without permission.  However, Jack does not tell Sam and Dean about what happened, which is very concerning.  Is Jack trying to protect himself or is there something else going on here?  Either way, it’s not a good sign that he is keeping his family in the dark.  Stay tuned!  New episodes return April 4th

**Supernatural has announced that season 15 will be its last.  15 is a very lucky and significant number to me so although it is bitter sweet, I think it is the right call for the series to end after next season. Carry on my Wayward Son.  SPN never really ends though, as it will continue to live on through its SPN family.
