This is how this works: I will give my TOP 5 choices for the Good and The Bad of each season 15 episode that has aired thus far, PLUS a random fact that may or may not have anything to do with the episode. It depends what I am thinking at that moment! After you read my opinions, I would like to hear your TOP 5 Good/Bad list from the same episode. The point is that every episode must have both good and bad stuff for you, or you are not being honest with yourself. 😉 “The Bad” stuff might be easier to write when the episode is not to your liking, then other times “The Good” will be easier. The Good/Bad stuff can be silly things - that is alright too!
Here we are, my penultimate recap for Supernatural. After this, there is only one left and I am probably not the only one who has mixed feelings about it all. It has been a long road, and this has been a tough year for all of us in more ways than one. Thank you for reading these and taking the journey with The Winchester Family Business. One more to go after this!
Supernatural 15.19 "Inherit the Earth”
1. The montage in the end
2. Winchesters and their plan
3. Jack, the better handler
4. Boys at the end…
5. Miracle survived!
1. That montage in the end caught me. It really felt like the ending already so I am not sure what they will offer to us next week. We have had so many returning faces this year, but the end of this episode felt that it was the last time for these rest. This was it. It still had many characters we loved but the focus was also mostly the happy times for the boys. Boy, I loved to see their smiles. I did not remember there were so many smiles. Even though I was sad, weirdly I was happy too… Whichever way the finale episode goes, I cannot wait.
2. The smart Winchesters won over Chuck by a mile. I am glad the surprise was left to the end. It would have ruined the surprise if we knew how Jack’s powers worked, and how Sam and Dean needed to trick a whole lot of people to get the plan to work. I am just sorry they needed to do that to Michael. I know he was not Adam anymore, but he did have his “meat suit”. That did not feel right to me. Still, the plan was complex, and they survived a godly beating – literally, for it to work. 'Nice job fellas' as Dean would say.
3. I do not know about you, but I think Jack will be good at the job he has been given. He learned from the Winchesters! Anyway, maybe he is better because he grew up with the people. Jack knows to guard against Chuck's mistakes of being “bored” and not caring anymore. You could see the difference in him and Amara. She saw that when she was released from her prison. I am glad she is guiding Jack's way… or, well, they are both guiding one another and TALKING about which way to go about doing things.
4. It was just a small part but the Winchesters sitting together at the end and talking how they are free was great. I am sure I was not the only one who saw Jared and Jensen bleed through from Sam and Dean. Those were real tears in their eyes, and they left the names of their legacy on the bunker table. Their names are closer together, with their closest extra family close by, written for the next generation. For them: "The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves." That is the message that John Connor sent to Sarah Connor from the future and she wrote with a knife as "No Fate" on a table. Two of my favorite franchises with two of my favorite things.
5. I love dogs and I was actually so happy when Dean finally was happy about a dog. He even gave him a name and said that Miracle would stay in Sam’s room because he knows how Sam likes dogs. (No, I will not go there) but aaaanyway, Miracle was SO cute! Wasn’t he? It is a shame they did not take him (it looked like it was a male), with them but I guess the owners also came back. Still, no dog for the boys then which is a shame. Maybe in the Supernatural movie then? Along with tattoos.
1. NOBODY hurts a dog on my watch.
2. Yay, it is Lucifer…
3. Distance, the curse of Covid-19?
4. Whiplashes, whiplashes everywhere!
5. Michael killed by Chuck
1. Talking about Miracle… How dare Chuck just snap him to oblivion like that? I mean, I know it was to break the Winchesters' hope and it clearly was aimed to break Dean. He really needed to have hope, and was so happy to find someone else alive that he could save. Then not to be able to even save a dog must really have hit hard. For me, Chuck was a goner on that spot – for the Winchesters and for the dog. Justice for Miracle!
2. I was happy to see Michael because we had not seen him a lot – at least our Michael, but for the love of the almighty, why did they bring Lucifer back? He has been killed over and over again and his story was done. In a word… I was not happy for him to be back even though I do like how Jared plays his reservations and emotions against his abuser. It is shown in every fiber of his being. My reaction was the same as Sam’s and Dean’s, hell nah and “slam the door closed.”
3. Maybe we look at the world in a different way at the moment, but I really noticed the physical distance between the actors. Maybe it would not have been such a big deal otherwise, but our focus is on different things now. That is why Chuck beating the Winchesters and them sitting on the table and being close affected me a lot in both cases. The first, because of the supreme effect of violence, and the second because of a loving and warm, comforting touch of a hand and bro side hug. I do know people need to keep themselves and each other safe, though. That is the world we live in now.
4. I know the plan could not be explained for it to have an effect, but this episode was so jam packed that it felt too busy. I got whiplash from the many characters, and trying to tie up everything in the battle against Chuck. It felt like this episode had three episodes worth of stuff to take in. I guess we did see something happening with Jack. My bet was that Jack's touch would kill anyone, not that he could absorb in all the powers from others. That made sense of the comment that Michael felt drained, weak, and tired after fighting Lucifer. I just did not pay heed of that at first; I just thought it was weird.
5. Even with every thing that happened, Michael being killed by his father, who Michael still loved and wanted to please, was pretty heartbreaking. I would have wanted Jake to play Adam and Michael again because he did that really, really well. He also has good chemistry with Jared and Jensen. I still feel we missed a lot when he did not play Michael more, or that they did not find a storyline where they could have used him. I hope Adam is back on Earth somewhere because I think Michael would like that. I don't think Jack is able to bring the archangels back, unfortunately. So, fare thee well Michael. Like others, you will be missed.
Grilling is a form of cooking that involves dry heat applied to the surface of food, commonly from above, below or from the side. Grilling usually involves a significant amount of direct, radiant heat, and tends to be used for cooking meat and vegetables quickly. Food to be grilled is cooked on a grill (an open wire grid such as a gridiron with a heat source above or below), using a cast iron/frying pan, or a grill pan (similar to a frying pan, but with raised ridges to mimic the wires of an open grill). Heat transfer to the food when using a grill is primarily through thermal radiation. Heat transfer when using a grill pan or griddle is by direct conduction. In the United States, when the heat source for grilling comes from above, grilling is called broiling. In this case, the pan that holds the food is called a broiler pan, and heat transfer is through thermal radiation.
Direct heat grilling can expose food to temperatures often in excess of 260 °C (500 °F). Grilled meat acquires a distinctive roast aroma and flavor from a chemical process called the Maillard reaction. The Maillard reaction only occurs when foods reach temperatures in excess of 155 °C (310 °F). Studies have shown that cooking beef, pork, poultry, and fish at high temperatures can lead to the formation of heterocyclic amines, benzopyrenes, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are carcinogens. Marination may reduce the formation of these compounds. Grilling is often presented as a healthy alternative to cooking with oils, although the fat and juices lost by grilling can contribute to drier food.
I am dying to read your choices for Top 10. Remember, anything goes!
