Warning!!!! If you havenâ€™t seen the latest episode of â€œSupernaturalâ€ and the preview for next week, do not read this! There is going to be plot-based speculation and discussion! Youâ€™ve been officially warned!
Yee-haw! Cowboy looks good on the Winchesters, wouldnâ€™t you say? I think that was a really fun episode, even if it mostly was just putting pieces into place. Those are sort of unavoidable sometimes, and if they can all be this fun, then Iâ€™m all for it. So letâ€™s enjoy the good times while we can because the rest of the season is probably going to kill us all. I predict epic angst and heartbreak and cries of GAMBLE!!!!! KRIPKE!!!!!! Anyway, Iâ€™m not going to speculate too much tonight because I think weâ€™ll have much more information starting next week, so for now, just a few words.
What the Hell is going on in Heaven?
What is Castiel up to? I think it really must be something shady if his lieutenant is willing to try and kill him. Granted, we didnâ€™t get to know her too well, but it seemed like Rachel was very staunchly on Cassâ€™ side, and she was finally convinced that whatever he is up to is definitely not good. What is his dirty little secret? And honestly, if Cass is doing something bad with good intentions, I canâ€™t say Iâ€™m surprised. He never had to make decisions for himself until he met the Winchesters, so theyâ€™re the ones he learned from. And letâ€™s be honest, they arenâ€™t exactly models of good decision-making. He told Sam and Dean thatâ€™s whatever heâ€™s doing, heâ€™s doing it for and because of them, so he obviously learned the lesson that itâ€™s okay to take whatever means necessary as long as you are protecting those closest to you. Sam and Dean and Bobby have done it enough times that the message has struck home. Heck, Cass himself has sacrificed himself twice already for the Winchesters. Or maybe I just want to find a reason to preemptively forgive Cass because I really like him and I donâ€™t want him to break my heart. Though, I will also say, I am fascinated by this whole storyline and canâ€™t wait to see how it plays out, no matter how hard it will be. A morally dubious Cass is certainly an interesting one.
Donâ€™t Ever Change, Dean
Man, it was so fabulous to Dean being so Dean tonight. I wish he could always be that exuberant and carefree, but I know itâ€™s not to be. It really felt like old times, with him making jokes and Sam not laughing at them and Dean not really caring because he was so happy. It was like visiting an old friend and falling back into the same rhythm you used to have, though you havenâ€™t seen each other for a while.
Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary
How about next weekâ€™s preview, huh? That is going to be angsty for Dean, as it always is when he has to confront his mother in some form other than herself. At least he had his Wild West Adventure first. And how do all these monsters always know what Mary looks like and that sheâ€™ll be the best form of torture? Do they share notes, read minds? I am looking forward to all the BAMF action, though. It looks like some heads will roll. Bring it on, Eve!
What did everyone think of the episode? Was it worth the wait? Are you ready for the emotional roller coaster that will be the end of the season?
