Happy Friday TV fans! After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 3, I realized that sacrifice is never easy, but sometimes it is necessary. Would you let the world die so that someone else could live or would you be able to make the impossible choice that Sam Winchester is left with? Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.
In last night’s episode, “The Rupture,” the team works together to retrieve Lilith’s horn to summon the souls back to hell, but not everything goes according to plan. Meanwhile, a sacrifice is made that reminds us that we are coming to the end, but what does it mean for the fate of our remaining characters? My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 3 are:
In the beginning of the episode, Rowena tries another ritual to cast the souls back to hell, but it doesn’t work. Rowena says that they are all going to die and that no magic can stop it. Dean insists that they try and come up with another plan and it seems like Belphegor has an idea with potential.
Belphegor explains that Lilith had a horn to summon all of the souls at once as a measure of last resort, but that it is probably locked away somewhere in hell. At this point, no one else has another suggestion, so it’s time for the team to get to work.
“Not at any price…”
Ketch is still recovering in the hospital, but he is anxious to return to his friends. We know that Ketch was hired to track down Belphegor by a demon named Ardat and she certainly makes her presence known now. Ardat threatens Ketch and demands that he give up his friends, but Ketch has this moment of redemption.
The old Ketch would have given them up to save himself, but he remains loyal and true. Ardat rips out Ketch’s heart and leaves him there to die, but we know that not everyone is going to make it on the last season of SPN. Either way, I’m glad that he did the right thing in the end. RIP Ketch.
“You’re an abomination…”
Castiel is forced to join Belphegor in hell to track down Lilith’s horn, but he is not exactly pleased about it. Belphegor claims he wants to be friends, but Castiel cannot bear to look at him wearing Jack’s body like a suit. Castiel tells Belphegor that he is an abomination, but proves to be quite useful when it comes to opening up the box to retrieve the horn. Nice singing, Cass!
Ardat attempts to break up the party, but is eliminated. However, she warns Castiel that Belphegor is trying to claim the throne of hell for himself. Belphegor’s true motives are revealed, explaining that he wants to absorb all the souls so that he can become a god. After all, there is a vacancy for that position.
Castiel is able to stop him in time, but Belphegor clearly does some damage when he pretends to be Jack one last time. Castiel recognizes the lie and destroys Belphegor, but it broke his heart to do so. Will Castiel be able to recover from this or is he too far gone now? I can’t bear to see him apart from the Winchesters, but he may need to find his sense of worth on his own. We need you Cass!
“It has to be you.”
SPN is not holding anything back for the final season, as Rowena suddenly realizes that “death is an infinite vessel.” She explains to Sam that she can absorb all the souls and bring them back to hell, but her death will seal the spell. Sam tells her that there has to be another way, but that pesky prophecy comes back up, as Rowena reminds him that he will need to be the one to kill her.
Sam and Rowena have grown very fond of one another and this moment was beyond heartbreaking, as Sam kills Rowena to save them all. Rowena absorbs the souls and says goodbye to her boys before she enters into the rift, which had me crying my eyes out.
Rowena has been one of my absolute favorite characters, but I thought that she also found redemption here. The witch who used to look out for her own interests truly discovered her purpose and this moment with Sam reminded her that she did have a family in the end.
Farewell Rowena. I will miss you so much!
“I don’t think there’s anything left to say…”
After this incredibly heartbreaking moment, Sam and Dean return to the bunker. Sam is dealing with his grief and Dean reminds him that they did it. Dean and Castiel have an argument and Castiel feels like Dean is still blaming him for Mary’s death. There has been a distance between these two for quite a while, but Castiel decides that it’s time for him to move on now.
Where will Castiel go? Is there a way for him and Dean to resolve their differences? I hope so because I can’t bear to see him separated from Sam and Dean. Castiel reminds Dean that he has Sam, but I have always looked at them all as a family and I can’t bear to see them apart. Let’s hope this gets resolved! Stay tuned SPN family!
