Whew. Where to even begin with this one? It was chalk full of Supernatural goodness from top to bottom, featuring old faces, reunions, phenomenal acting and serious cliffhangers, on two fronts. Some interesting moments of symmetry. What does it all add up to? One great mid-season finale.
Let’s break it down.
Finally! A myth arc episode! While I enjoy Supernatural’s lighter episodes, I am drawn to the deeper story, i.e. the mythology, the relationships between the characters, and whatever big stakes, supernatural battle is currently being fought by Sam, Dean and Castiel. “Our Father Who Aren’t In Heaven” (OFWAIH) delivered on all those fronts with an outstanding character study of Adam and Michael leading the way. Superbly directly by Richard Speight, Jr. with intricate stage sets by Jerry Wanek’s team, this story was visually, intellectually and emotionally interesting. Let’s get started!
NOW: The Lucky Elephant Casino is bright and cheerful, though one inebriated customer has apparently passed out leaning on the bar. But then there's another sprawled body, then another. A frightened cocktail waitress in fishnet stockings and high heels delicately steps through the carnage. She's holding herself tightly in control, though she's obviously shaking with terror. A tray with a fancy drink with an umbrella is balanced on her hand as she approaches the slot machines. Someone is pulling the crank; three pink elephants roll up; coins rattle out into the overflowing tray. The waitress breathes deep and approaches the customer. It's Chuck. He looks over his shoulder at her. "You went easy on the rum this time?" he asks, then adds darkly. "You don't want to see me cranky." He yanks the umbrella out of the glass and tosses it aside. The waitress tries to smile.
