Tonight’s episode begins with an overview of Nick enjoying his murderous indulgences, even though he’s sans Lucifer. THEN: Michael battles Sam, Cas, and Dean in Dean’s mind and is trapped inside Dean’s mind. Billie visits Dean and tells him there’s only one way he dies that doesn’t end in Michael destroying the world.
NOW: There’s a close up of ropes binding a woman’s bare arms. Nick has tied up a woman in an evening gown, high heels, an upswept hair do, and sparkling, dangling earrings. She marvels that she’s been caught by a human. Is he some kind of hunter, the captive wonders. Nick says he’s not. He has a huge knife, but the woman isn’t phased by that. Nick wants information on the demon Abraxis and on the hunter he’d heard had tracked him down. The woman tells him that the hunter is in Hibbing, Minnesota, before her eyes turn black. She’s still looking arrogant when he stabs straight for her face, and we see black ooze like a tear drop down her face.
On January 24, 1979, somewhere in Lawrence, Kansas, a boy was born to Mary and John Winchester. At the time of his birth, no one thought he would have to fight ghosts, demons, ghouls, vampires, and all the other natural and "supernatural" creatures of the world. Neither did they know how important he would be in the fight to stop the apocalypse and other calamities of the future. Dean Winchester, today we celebrate your 40th birthday! This Is Your Life!
Exciting and brilliantly executed. Supernatural’s 14.10 “Nihilism” was another superb chapter in season 14’s story. Jensen was absolutely outstanding, presenting such a chilling and overly-confident Michael that there was no trace of Dean in the face we’ve lovingly obsessed over for 14 years. Thankfully, all the other characters got to play smart versions of themselves, from experienced, powerful Castiel; to Sam knowing his brother better than his brother knows himself; to the momentary return of Jack the Nephilim savior. Even Maggie’s valiant attempt at leading hunters was realistic, as her failure to anticipate the Trojan horse tactic (the imposter/disguise thread) reflected her youth and inexperience.
Back from hiatus!
Then – Dean mentions impossible odds and walking into a trap. We see Michael possessing Dean and doing some of his take-over-the-world activities, Gadreel possessing Sam and Sam able to break free from the mind-control when Crowley said, “Poughkeepsie!”, Jack collapsing and dying but being restored by Cas who speaks of the power of the human soul. Finally, there is Dean attacking Michael with the spear but then being retaken over and Michael gloating in front of the window, declaring his power.
