As the refugees from Apocalypse World start to settle in and the Winchesters resume hunting alongside Jack and Castiel, one of the Apocalypse World refugees, Maggie, turns up dead. Shortly afterwards, Jack is greeted by Lucifer who entices his son into leaving the Earth to find a new life out amongst the stars. Jack gets Lucifer to resurrect Maggie who later identifies Lucifer as her killer. At the same time, Michael appears to attack the Winchesters and Castiel who barely escape. With the bunker under attack, Mary and Bobby Singer flee as Sam prays to Jack for help. Jack severely injures Michael before Lucifer's actions are revealed. Only wanting his son's power, Lucifer steals Jack's grace, leaving Jack human before teleporting to a church with Jack and Sam. With Lucifer now virtually unstoppable, Dean makes a deal with Michael where he will become Michael's vessel to fight Lucifer but Dean will remain in control. Powered by Michael, Dean fights Lucifer, ending with Dean finally killing Lucifer with the Archangel Blade. With Lucifer dead, the Winchesters and Jack celebrate only to have Michael betray his deal, take full control of Dean and depart.
Not quite what I expected. I just I thought there would be this really epic battle. Well, it was and it wasn't. I was surprised how Lucifer turned on Jack so quickly. I mean the entire season we see Lucifer wanting his son, driven by finding him and yet in the end Lucifer was just using Jack as a battery, a power source. It amazes how quickly the Winchester Boys adopted Jack into the family.
Luv'ed seeing Mary and Bobby have a moment hope that continues.
Luv'ed it when Dean as Michael's Sword arrived with the wings out ... can you say wallpaper quick enough.
Luv'ed Dean all cleaned up and classy and a blue twinkle in his eye.
I only recently started watching Supernatural and I love it! It reminds me a lot of Grimm, only instead of Nick and his friend on the police force hunting down legendary creatures, it's two brothers (Dean and Sam). I love getting into a long-running series late and having plenty of new episodes to look forward to. I watch tv while crocheting so this is a perfect series to keep running while I work on my latest project.
The fourteenth season of Supernatural, an American dark fantasy television series created by Eric Kripke, premiered on October 11, 2018, on The CW, and concluded on April 25, 2019. The season consists of 20 episodes and aired on Thursdays at 8:00 pm (ET). This is the third season with Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer as showrunners.
The thirteenth episode of the season marks the 300th episode of the series.
In the weeks since his possession of Dean, Michael has begun visiting various people and asking the question "what do you want?" while he tries to figure out the answer in regards to himself. One of these people is the angel Anael who has returned to life on Earth following Lucifer's departure from Heaven. Anael later calls Sam to warn him of Michael allying with vampires. Meanwhile, Jack is struggling to adapt to life as a human without his powers and is trained by Bobby Singer without much success. Sam is the leader of a new hunter network and runs himself ragged in search of Dean. Sam learns from Lucifer's former vessel Nick, who survived Lucifer's death, that Michael plans to "do it right this time," but nothing else. In an attempt to find Dean, Castiel meets with the demon Kip, who ambushes Castiel in hopes of making a deal with Sam to become the new King of Hell. After a massive brawl, Sam kills Kip and makes it clear to the remaining demons that there will be no more Kings of Hell. The demons then flee in fear.
mmmm what is Michael up to?
Luv Dean's new look.
Like seeing the bunker filled with people and folks doing hunter business.
Note to self even after saving the world you still have to come home and do the dishes and vacuum the carpet, (slide reference to the new hunters doing business).
Still struggling without his powers, Jack visits his grandparents to find a familial connection. He learns more about his mother, but can't bring himself to tell his grandparents who he is or that Kelly is dead. Nick becomes more aggressive and begins to display Lucifer-like behaviors, causing Castiel to suspect that Lucifer did more damage to Nick's psyche than was thought. Learning that the murders of his wife and infant son were never solved, Nick sets out to get revenge. Nick visits his old neighbor Arty, the only witness, for answers. After learning what he knows, Nick kills Arty with a hammer, the same way his family was murdered. Michael performs experiments on enhancing monsters using angel grace, burning out a nest of vampires in the process. Michael's experiments draw the attention of Sam, Bobby, and Mary Winchester, who investigate while Michael makes a deal with a pack of werewolves to build an army of monsters and wipe out the human race. Michael's enhanced werewolves attack the hunters and prove to be immune to silver, but not decapitation. After the fight, Dean suddenly arrives with Michael no longer possessing his body, having left on his own.
Nick, Lucifer's former meat suit - is a mess.
Michael has an alliance with the werewolves ... sounds like they both want to wipe out most of humanity and leave the rest as slaves and food. With all this why did Michael leave Dean's body?
To understand why Michael left Dean’s body, Castiel locates a memory of Michael being attacked by a hooded figure with a spear that the Winchesters recognize as Kaia Nieves' killer from The Bad Place. The Winchesters team up with Jody Mills, who has been investigating a series of murders where the victims, revealed to be Michael's enhanced monsters, all have scars that match the one on Dean’s arm from the spear. The Winchesters and Jody capture the hooded figure, who they realize is Kaia's Bad Place doppelgänger. She is also a dreamwalker and has been sharing visions with their Kaia her whole life. When Michael's enhanced vampires attack, Kaia saves their lives and departs with the spear. Dean confesses to Sam that he blames himself for Michael's rampage. Jack, feeling useless without his powers, tries to leave the bunker but takes interest in a young woman named Laura rescued from a witch who is inexplicably aging to death. Though Laura dies, Jack pieces together clues she told him about the witch's actions to restore her life force. Castiel congratulates Jack for saving Laura without his powers and Jack hides the fact that he is now coughing up blood.
I liked seeing Dark Kaia again.
Jack is learning to do other things besides using his powers.
On Halloween, Sam pulls Dean out of his room, where he's been hiding out and watching scary movies, to investigate a case in Salem, Ohio where an action figure came to life and attacked its owner, Stuart. After both Stuart and Dean are attacked by an invisible figure with a chainsaw, its determined that they are dealing with the vengeful spirit of a comic shop owner who is angry at Stuart for always stealing from the shop. Possessing a life-sized figure of Dean's favorite horror movie character, David Yeager, the ghost attacks Dean in the hospital where he is protecting Stuart. Sam manages to destroy the ghost and later reveals that he hates Halloween because of a traumatic event in his childhood where he was embarrassed in front of a girl he liked. At the hospital, a security guard notices the lights flickering and the action figure recites his "trick or treat" catch-phrase, suggesting that the ghost may not be really gone.
While working her first solo case, Maggie disappears. From her body camera, Sam and Dean learn that Maggie was ambushed by what appeared to be a ghoul. Investigating, they find that their mother and Bobby are investigating the same case. The four discover the body of another hunter and manifestations that make them suspect that the owner of the house, who is comatose following an apparent stroke, is a psychic who is bending reality around him. As Sam rescues Maggie from the attic and Mary and Bobby face a manifestation of Bobby's dead son Daniel in the woods, Dean realizes that the home owner's nurse Neil is a djinn, enhanced by Michael's experiments. Neil reveals that he was left as a trap for hunters by Michael and that there are dozens of similar traps all over the place. After mysteriously proving immune to Neil's powers, Dean is able to kill him, ending Neil's manifestations. Sam and Dean spread the word to other hunters while Bobby tells Mary how since he lost Daniel, hunting is all he's had. Mary and Bobby take a sabbatical at Donna Hanscum's cabin for Bobby to heal and to find something else to live for.
Another back to basics episode with the boys hunting other monsters with a twist.
Looks like Michael is enhancing all the monsters and targeting hunters.
Nice to see Mary and Bobby working through their problems.
Jack convinces Dean to work the case of a young man mysteriously murdered in McCook, Nebraska with him. Dean and Jack discover that the local librarian, Harper Sayles, has a bad history with men and suspect her to be cursed. The culprit turns out to be Harper's old boyfriend Vance who is a zombie while Harper is the necromancer that resurrected him and targets her potential boyfriends to feed Vance. Dean and Jack manage to kill Vance, but Harper escapes and develops an obsession with Jack. The case convinces Dean to give Jack a chance at being a hunter. At the same time, Sam works a case with Charlie Bradbury in Memphis, Tennessee. The two determine that they are dealing with a rogue insectoid monster known as a musca and kill the monster, rescuing its latest victim. Throughout the hunt, Charlie reveals many of the differences between her and the Charlie that the Winchesters once knew and expresses a desire to leave hunting after the case and go off on her own. Sam convinces Charlie to reconsider leaving. During the episode, Jack's strange cough persists. At the end of the episode, Jack coughs up blood in front of Dean before suddenly collapsing, bleeding from his nose and mouth.
Another back to basics episode but this time Dean is working with Jack. Nice twist, then another at the end.
Rowena determines that Jack's condition is a result of his human and angel sides attacking each other without his grace maintaining a balance. Sam decides to contact a shaman named Sergei for help while Jack decides to live the remainder of his life to the fullest with the help of Dean, who displays mysterious dizzy spells. Sergei provides Castiel with some of Gabriel's grace and a spell to fix Jack's condition in exchange for the Winchesters owing him a favor. Rowena performs the spell, but Jack only grows worse with Sergei telling Castiel that it was an experiment. Rowena proclaims that there is nothing more they can do for Jack but be there for him as he dies. Based on the information he learned from his former neighbor Arty, Nick tracks down a former cop named Frank Kellogg and tortures him for information about his family's murders. Frank reveals that he murdered Nick's family after encountering a man named Abraxas, who Nick realizes was a demon who had possessed Frank to commit the murders. Nick then bludgeons Frank to death with a hammer. Having realized he enjoyed being Lucifer's vessel, Nick prays to the archangel, causing a skeletal figure with red eyes to rise in the Empty.
Jack dies of his condition, leaving the Winchesters and Castiel in mourning. In an attempt to save Jack, Sam contacts angel expert Lily Sunder, now an old woman, who suggests that they can resurrect Jack and cure him with her magic which will use the power of Jack's own soul to sustain him. In return, Lily asks the Winchesters and Castiel to ensure her admittance into Heaven. Lily explains that she still has a piece of her soul left and she wants to get into Heaven to ensure that she will be reunited with her daughter. The Winchesters summon Anubis who determines that Lily will go to Hell and explains that the choices a person makes in life determines their ultimate fate. Despite this, Dean convinces Lily to help them. In Heaven, Jack is chased by a dark force and is reunited with his mother Kelly Kline. As part of their plan, Castiel travels into Heaven where he learns from Naomi that the entity from The Empty has come seeking Jack's soul. With the angels being consumed by the entity, Castiel locates Jack, only to come face to face with the entity. Castiel makes a deal with the entity to trade himself for Jack, a deal that the entity chooses not to collect upon right away. In thanks, Naomi provides Castiel with Michael's location. Castiel and Lily succeed in resurrecting Jack, but the effort causes Lily to suffer a fatal heart attack. Lily is judged worthy of Heaven by Anubis and is allowed to be reunited with her daughter at long last.
I have always liked that this series keeps track of it's mythos and brings back characters it has created and used in other episodes. It adds that extra layer to the world building and story telling. I liked Lily's back story and how she handled what happened. Liked the introduction of Anubis and that the while the boys appreciated her sacrifice they didn't know the outcome, we viewers did.
Didn't particularly like the Castiel subplot. Never liked the Empty. Don't like the deal. It is just icky.
Having located the hyperbolic pulse generator, Arthur Ketch mails it to the Winchesters. At the same time, Garth goes undercover amongst Michael's monsters and discovers that Michael, now in a female vessel, has monsters ready to turn the entire population of Kansas City, Missouri into his monster army. Garth warns Sam, but is forced to accept Michael's enhancements. While Sam and Jack go after the hyperbolic pulse generator, Dean and Castiel go after Kaia who provides them with her spear in exchange for them helping her to return home to the Bad Place after Michael is defeated. At the same time, Michael destroys the hyperbolic pulse generator and abducts Jack. Sam is able to rescue Jack, but Garth falls under Michael's influence and attacks, forcing Sam to subdue him. Reunited, Sam, Dean, Jack and Castiel launch an attack on Michael with Kaia's spear. Dean appears about to kill Michael when the archangel suddenly repossesses him and destroys the weapon. Michael reveals that Dean had been fighting him so much that he allowed Dean to go in order to break Dean's spirit before using the crack he left in Dean's mind to repossess him. Michael triumphantly announces that Dean is gone and gives his army the signal to attack.
After 14 seasons that was their plan to just walk in to Michael's office, into a trap, without really knowing how to spear fight and expect to win because they walk nicely in slo mo to inspirational music and have good hair? In one sense classic Supernatural, but oh so stupid. I really expected a bit of a twist there and was disappointed. It would have been so funny if they had just left and Michael had been left there waiting in his office.
] Sam, Castiel and Jack manage to trap Michael using the angelic handcuffs, but he summons several monsters to rescue him. Sam attempts to get the Reaper Violet to transport them to safety and despite her protests, Sam, Castiel, Jack and Michael are suddenly teleported to the bunker where Sam gets word from Maggie that all of Michael's monsters have broken off their attack on Kansas City, Missouri and are headed for the bunker. Remembering how Crowley helped Sam kick Gadreel out of his mind, Sam and Castiel use the British Men of Letters mind-link device to enter Dean's mind and get him to cast Michael out while Jack remains behind to defend the bunker. Sam and Castiel find Dean living out a looped existence where he owns a bar with Pamela Barnes and is happy. After they succeed in getting Dean to remember the truth, Michael attacks and warns that Dean will die if he is forced out. Instead, Dean, Sam and Castiel trap Michael within Dean's mind. At the same time, several monsters attack the bunker and Jack draws on power from his soul to destroy them. After Michael is trapped, Michael's army seemingly disbands with Michael unable to control them anymore. Castiel warns Jack of the ramifications of using his soul in such a manner while Michael continues to struggle to break free of Dean's control. Dean is visited by Billie who reveals that she had rescued Sam and the others from Michael's monsters. Billie warns Dean that all versions of his fate but one now have Michael breaking free and using Dean to destroy the world. Billie shows Dean the one fate where Michael fails, leaving Dean shocked at what it reveals must be done.
Dean is doing an excellent performance as Michael. You actually believe he is a different person. I also luv all the extra man grooming that has been done for the Michael character, the eyebrows groomed, the skin poreless. What ever fitness and nutrition and skin care routine Jensen Ackles is following the results are fabulous.
I did think that the other world survivors staying in the Men of Letters bunker would be more battle savvy then was shown in this episode. I would also have thought that the bunker would have had some rather strong defenses both physical and magical against potential creature attack.
Acting strangely, Dean departs the bunker to visit Mary and Donna by himself and begins building something in Donna's cabin's workshop. Mary catches on and alerts Sam who travels to Hibbing, Minnesota to confront his brother. At the same time, Nick continues his bloody rampage of revenge by searching for Abraxas who he learns was captured by Mary Winchester while slaughtering a Girl Scout troop. Nick kidnaps Mary and forces her to lead him to a storage unit where Abraxas is trapped in an Enochian puzzle box. With the help of Donna, the Winchesters track down Nick as he releases Abraxas who possesses a security guard Nick kidnapped. Nick frees Abraxas from a devil's trap when confronted by the Winchesters and Abraxas reveals that he killed Nick's family on Lucifer's orders. Nick kills Abraxas with an angel blade, getting his revenge and is arrested for his murder spree by Donna. Nick justifies his actions as being necessary to avenge his family while Sam apologizes for not being able to save him. Dean reveals to Sam that he built a box that can permanently contain even an archangel as according to Billie, it is the only way to stop Michael from escaping. Dean's plan is to trap himself with Michael for eternity at the bottom of the ocean and Sam reluctantly agrees to help him.
I do like to see Dean be nice to people it just freaks them out.
Hopefully, this is the last we see of Nick. Will Donna try to get him for the murder of the storage security person, or any of the other folks he killed? I was surprised Dean didn't reconnect with Jody and the girls.
Still in custody, Nick escapes and returns to his old house in Pike Creek, Delaware where Nick finds the ghost of his wife Sarah. Sarah reveals that she is trapped by Nick's inability to let go of Lucifer and the unfinished business it causes her. Nick remains unable to let Lucifer go, even to free his wife and departs to continue his search for the archangel. At the same time, Sam continues to attempt to talk Dean out of his plan while convincing him to take the case of a strange double murder in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Sam and Dean discover the killer to be a malformed Prophet Tony Alvarez, created by Donatello Redfield's current state between life and death. Believing that he hears the voice of God, Tony has been committing divine retributions before committing suicide when Sam and Dean catch him. To prevent further corruption of the Prophet line, the Winchesters and Castiel reluctantly decide that they must remove the brain dead Donatello from life support and end his life. However, it is discovered that Donatello's mind is attempting to rebuild itself which is what Tony actually heard. Castiel is able to awaken Donatello who remains soulless, but is no longer twisted and corrupted. Sam and Castiel succeed in convincing Dean to try to find another way, leaving his plan as a last resort instead.
The boys are working on their "last" case before Dean sails off to go deep sea diving with his "angel coffin". I don't think Castiel and/or Sam really convinced Dean to change his mind, he is just done disgusting it with them.
Investigating the murder of a hunter friend of theirs, Sam and Dean come into possession of a collection of occult items from a pawn shop, including a cigar box containing the ghost of John Wayne Gacy and a Chinese pearl that grants the holder's greatest wish. Dean attempts to use the pearl to get rid of Michael, but instead inadvertently summons John Winchester from 2003. While the Winchesters are initially thrilled to have their family reunited, the removal of John from 2003 alters the timeline, creating a world where Sam runs a law firm and is Internet famous, Dean is a wanted serial killer and Castiel is an unquestioning and loyal soldier of Heaven. Castiel arrives in Lebanon, Kansas with Zachariah to investigate the changes to history, leading to a conflict which ends with Zachariah killed by Sam and Castiel banished. Though reluctant, the Winchester family decides that they must destroy the pearl and send John back to 2003 to prevent the new timeline from becoming a reality. After an emotional goodbye, John is returned to his own time, leaving him thinking that the experience was only a dream while history restores itself to normal.
Nice to see John Winchester again, to see them have a grown up dinner with each other. This series has always been excellent with serio - comic bits in this case seeing Sammy doing Ted Talks and looking like the former Apple guru, and Dean on a wanter poster.
Interesting to note that life as a Hunter is extremely dangerous with Pawn Shop owners killing you for unique items.
Nice bit with the local kids, with one stealing Baby, and later three of them learning about the bad things that go bump in the night.
The Winchesters, Castiel, Jack and Rowena work together to hunt a monster paralyzing and eating people across multiple states. They eventually determine that they are dealing with a Gorgon who is unable to see Castiel and Jack with his clairvoyant powers as they are not human. Castiel and Jack attempt to ambush the gorgon, only to fail to defeat him. When the Winchesters intervene, Dean is knocked unconscious before Jack manages to kill the gorgon. Dean remains unconscious, leaving Jack to face the realities of being an immortal being. As Dean's family and friends try to find a way to help him, his state allows Michael to escape his mind and Michael forces Rowena to become his new vessel, brutally slaughtering several hunters. Tapping into the power of his soul, Jack manages to exorcise Michael from Rowena and destroys the archangel, absorbing his grace. Jack announces to his stunned friends that Michael is dead and Jack has regained his own powers, displaying his wings as proof.
The opening is classic Supernatural with monsters making simple things like cooking dinner gruesome.
Luv seeing Rowena again, her skin is so dewy and smooth.
Sad to see all the new hunters in the bunker be killed I wish they wouldn't do that as it would was nice to think the boys could rebuild a Men of Letters/Hunter association.
Nice bit with the gorgon and Jack and loss and sacrifice and nice to see a conclusion that was extremely quick and you think that was it?
Troubled at Jack's recent transformation and how much of his human soul is left after his battle with Michael, Dean takes Jack to talk with Donatello based on the prophet's own experience of losing his soul, while Sam and Castiel investigate a report of a man's head exploding. Tracing the victim back to his hometown, Sam and Castiel discover that the entire town is essentially stuck living in the fifties, with the accompanying fashions and moral attitudes, to the point that Sam falls under the influence and takes the dead man's place. With Castiel immune due to his angelic status, he determines that the culprit is the town mayor Chip Harrington, who used his psychic powers to force his image of an ideal existence on the rest of the town. Castiel is able to break Chip's influence over Sam and his daughter Sunny then traps Chip in his own mind where he will live out the rest of his life in his delusion. Meanwhile, Jack talks with Donatello, admitting that he isn't sure how much of his human soul is left, but Donatello encourages him to do as he does and judge his actions from a moral perspective based on the best men he knows. Jack declares Sam and Dean as his influence, but later kills the pet snake of the Gorgon, which he had taken as his own, so that it could be reunited with its master.
A road trip for Dean and Jack and the snake to talk to Donatello about being soul less.
A road trip for Cass and Sam more for Sam to deal with the deaths of all the hunters at the bunker by Michael. They run into a creation of a 1950's small town where everyone is "happy".
Like the little bits about the Saturday Evening Post, Norman Rockwell, Mr. Rogers, and cardigans.
In Polk City, Iowa, a young couple is attacked by a monster which kills the girl. Sam discovers that there have been at least fifty-four disappearances in the area stretching back to 1943, but the Winchesters decide to leave Jack behind in the bunker. Sam and Dean discover that they are facing a legendary monster called a Kohonta which the local sheriff reveals is a man who was cursed by the Native Americans for engaging in cannibalism. The Winchesters and the sheriff kill the kohonta and manage to save the sheriff's son from it. Sam encourages the sheriff to tell his son the truth, still reeling from the loss of the hunters murdered by Michael. At the same time, Jack befriends the local kids who had learned the truth about the supernatural after encountering the ghost of infamous serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Jack's attempts to show off cause him to almost kill Stacy with an angel blade. Though Jack heals Stacy, Jack's antics scare off his new friends. Afterwards, the Winchesters admit the truth to Jack about why they left him behind, but Jack lies about what he did while they were gone.
Getting a break from the main story line back to the monster of the week. It never made sense to me to curse a person for horrible things and that thing just keeps killing people.
It was so sweet to see Jack attempt to bond with kids and it go horribly wrong.
Nick captures Donatello as part of a complex ritual to try and draw Lucifer out of the Empty to become his vessel again by boosting Donatello's Prophet abilities to reach the Empty. Jack and Mary are able to intercept him and trap Lucifer back in the Empty before he can fully manifest, but Jack proceeds to kill Nick. Meanwhile, Castiel and Anael attempt to contact God for help restoring Jack's soul by tracking a man called Methuselah, who offered Joshua sanctuary after the Fall. Castiel finds the amulet and tries to contact God but nothing happens.
Why oh why can't they kill Nick? They keep stopping and he escapes and kills more and more people yet they keep giving second chances they wouldn't for anyone else.
After accidentally killing Mary Winchester, Jack begins hallucinating Lucifer talking to him. At the same time, the Winchesters discover Nick's body and learn from Rowena that Mary is dead. Castiel attempts to travel to Heaven to find Mary's soul for a resurrection while Jack approaches Rowena to use a spell from the Book of the Damned to resurrect Mary himself. Despite Rowena's warnings as Mary left no body behind, Jack attempts the spell, but only succeeds in bringing back Mary's body. After being intercepted by Duma, Castiel discovers that Mary is at peace in a special Heaven with John Winchester. Grief-stricken, the Winchesters and Castiel give Mary a hunter's funeral while Jack's Lucifer hallucination tries to convince him that he can't trust the Winchesters any longer.
I do think that even with only 20 episodes this season dragged a bit as if they didn't know what the were really going. I am would rather have a really good shorter season then dragging it out. I do think it was a mistake to totally kill off all the hunters/refugees that came from the alternate earth. You had this beautiful opportunity of rebuilding a Men of Letters/Hunter organization but they didn't do it. You can still have the show about the Winchester Brothers but it was also an opportunity for them to have families and maybe teach new recruits at a training academy. I would have liked to see Mary settle with Bobby and maybe have a few more kids as technically she died at 29 and was only back for 3 yrs. It would have been fun for Dean and Sam to have a couple of half siblings.
This season has made it easy for me to make the decision to stop watching the show. I will finish season 15 as it is the last and hopefully short.
Following Mary's death, the Winchesters and Castiel begin hunting for Jack who is being manipulated by Dumah who now rules Heaven after overthrowing Naomi. Dumah begins using Jack to establish a reign of terror over the Earth, beating humans into submission, removing all sense of mercy from Heaven and attempting to create more angels. After learning of what Jack has been doing, Castiel confronts an unrepentant Dumah in Heaven. After she threatens to harm the souls of John and Mary Winchester, Castiel kills Dumah with his angel blade and ends her reign of terror. At the same time, the Winchesters get Jack to return and trick him into the Ma'lak Box, intending to imprison him. As Castiel returns, horrified by what they have done, Jack, urged on by his Lucifer hallucination, breaks free of the Ma'lak Box.
I kinda like the idea of Jack making new angels. I am amazed that Jack and Dumah only managed to do two events.
After fleeing the bunker, Jack places everyone in the world under a mind control where they tell the truth all the time and visits his grandparents who learned that Jack lied about his mother the last time he visited. As the Winchesters try to track down Jack, God appears, after hearing Castiel's prayer and reverses Jack's actions before they meet the Winchesters. God warns them that Jack is a grave threat that they must deal with. God provides Dean with a gun that can kill Jack, but will also kill Dean at the same time while Sam starts to become suspicious of God's motives. Dean confronts Jack in a cemetery, but can't bring himself to kill Jack who accepts his fate. God reveals that he has been manipulating the situation like a story that he writes and is angered by Dean's failure to kill Jack. After he is confronted by his acts, God kills Jack himself and Sam's attempts at killing God fail. Enraged by their audacity, God decides to end the world and turns the world into darkness and unleashes the souls of Hell upon the world with Sam, Dean and Castiel being surrounded by an army of zombies. At the same time, Jack awakens in the Empty where he is greeted by The Shadow and Billie. Billie tells Jack that they need to talk about the current situation.
Wow, I think I have been waiting all season for this episode, the spark it back, this is what a Supernatural episode should be. Fun, witty, quirky, can't wait to see what happens next. Seriously the writing staff has been asleep all season.
What is so hilarious is as much as we as a culture, nation, people, claim that speaking the truth is for the best what really happens when folks stop lying? The President for one goes on a two hour off track speech about his taxes and the devil's deal he has with someone named Crowley. Too funny.
The Winchesters and Castiel barricade themselves in a mausoleum in an attempt to escape the zombie horde. While trying to find a way out, the demon Belphegor possesses Jack's corpse and offers his help, blasting the souls out of the reanimated corpses. With an infestation of ghosts on the loose, the three reluctantly form an alliance with the demon. With the nearby town of Harlan, Kansas in danger, the Winchesters and Castiel begin an evacuation while facing off with many ghosts, including former enemies Constance Welch, Mary Worthington and John Wayne Gacy. The group manages to safely evacuate most of the town and Belphegor casts a spell that traps the ghosts inside the abandoned town. However, he reveals that there were two to three billion souls in Hell who were all released when Chuck opened the doors. Additionally, this opened Lucifer's Cage, potentially releasing Michael to wreak havoc as well. Castiel proves unable to heal Sam's gunshot wound from when he tried to kill Chuck and discovers a strange energy he has never felt before blocking Castiel's powers. With only a day or two to sort things out before the real authorities show up, Sam suggests that if they stop the end of the world this time, they will truly be free as Chuck has abandoned their world as he did other worlds in the past such as Apocalypse World.
It's been a while but I have started watching season 15. Well God opened the Gates of Hell and folks left. They meet a new demon inhabiting Jack's body. That entire thing is kinda fun. At one point when Dean and Demon Jack hear a scream they run toward it they do it in sync, same leg length, same stride pattern, almost as if they were close family.
I do wish that suburbans moms could run faster then they portray on these shows.
I feel bad for Castiel as his feelings always seem cast aside by Dean.
The closing scene was nice, there was a quick flashback I guess to the last scene in Season 1 Episode 1.
Still in Harlan, Kansas, the Winchesters and their hunter allies struggle to contain both the ghosts and the restless citizens as the barrier begins to weaken. Led by Francis Tumblety, better known as the infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper, the ghosts plot their escape while killing as many people as they can. The Winchesters are joined by Rowena, who works on a spell to more permanently contain the ghosts and Arthur Ketch who reveals he was hired by a demon named Ardat to assassinate Belphegor. To their surprise, Sam and Dean also receive help from the ghost of Kevin Tran who had been cast into Hell instead of Heaven as Chuck claimed. The Winchesters succeed in containing the ghosts in a crystal, but more rise from Hell. Having learned that he cannot go to Heaven, Kevin decides to wander the Earth as a ghost rather than risk returning to Hell. At the same time, Chuck seeks the help of Amara in Reno, Nevada. Chuck is revealed to have been severely weakened and diminished when Sam shot him and Amara, seeing that her brother hasn't changed from the petulant narcissistic being he always was, refuses to help and abandons her brother who is trapped on Earth and has developed a link with Sam.
Starting watching episode 2 it seems to drag a bit.
Well it looks as if the first three episode will be a bit of a story arc concerning the release of all the souls in Hell.
Yes, it is still dragging.
Ketch and Rowena are flirting.
Kevin Tran is back and because God cast him into Hell according to the rules Kevin can't go to Heaven and is doomed to be a ghost on Earth.
Chuck/God is trying to hang with his sister Amara but that is not working out and some how Chuck and Sam are linked through their bullet wounds.
Rowena attempts to use a spell from the Book of the Damned to strengthen the barrier, but discovers that the barrier is too weak and will inevitably fall. Belphegor offers a solution where they retrieve Lilith's crook from Hell and use it to draw in all of the escaped souls and demons while Sam and Rowena perform a spell to close the rupture. At the same time, the demon Ardat brutally murders Arthur Ketch while seeking out Belphegor who travels into Hell with Castiel. After they retrieve the crook, Ardat attacks, revealing that Belphegor is using the Winchesters to gain power in Hell for himself. Belphegor kills Ardat and attempts to draw all of the souls and demons inside of himself to gain unlimited power, but is smote by Castiel, destroying the crook. With no other way, Rowena decides to use a spell that requires the sacrifice of her own life to draw the souls and demons inside of herself and then travel into Hell. At Rowena's request, Sam reluctantly fatally stabs Rowena who casts the souls and demons back into Hell. Sam and Dean are left devastated by the losses of Arthur and Rowena and Dean accuses Castiel of being responsible for everything going wrong. Realizing that Dean still blames him for Mary's death, Castiel reveals that his powers are failing and decides that its time to move on with the situation seemingly under control.
I can understand that in an open ended series like most TV shows most good "bad" characters seem to always escape death or getting hurt, so now the series is ending this is a good opportunity to have some creative deaths. I do feel this opening trilogy of episodes was supposed to set the tone for the season culminating in the deaths of Ketch and Rowena. I have to honesty say the story arc dragged along in agonizing slowness over what would normally be three weeks. This was not the writers best work. I was surprised and sad at Ketch's death, it seemed so unnecessary and pointless. While I get Rowena's last main speech to Sam about believing in prophecy I still did not want to see her go and yes I chocked up and shed a tear or two. Rowena was a bad ass witch.
I liked the relationship between Casiel and Belphagor it was fun. Cas did the right thing but I HATE HATE what an douche Dean has become. Cas was put in an incredibly difficult decision and he made the right call. But Dean now blames Rowena's death on Cas and he does Mary's. Dean has been in the business long enough to know that no battle plan lasts pass the first encounter with the enemy. Cas has been a friend, an ally for many years but Dean throws it all away because his feelings are hurt.
I felt bad that the other experienced Hunters were basically used as guards and it seemed a waste.
