Supernatural Hell’s Angel

We start out in the middle of the desert with Crowley. The Horn of Joshua, that is what Crowley is after. I am not a religious person so I am not sure what this horn is supposed to do. I guess we will find out soon.

You ever watch a movie that has gangsters riding around on the outside of cars looking for rival gang members? Maybe a couple right. Now imagine that the gangsters are demons and the rival gang member is Crowley. That is how Lucifer is out looking for him. I think that takes a bit of his credibility away, don’t you?
I am literally six minutes into the episode and I am already asking so many questions. The biggest one at the moment is, How the hell is Rowena alive? Lucifer broke her neck!
Crowley has the Horn of Joshua and lets the boys know that it is the only thing that will destroy Lucifer and the Darkness. It has been touched by the hand of God, my only problem with this is the fact that they already had a couple of things that were touched by God’s hand and they were one hit wonders. That has me worried for this horn. Will this too be a one hit wonder?
Lucifer is in heaven talking to all of the angels, I don’t think it is going well for him. Of course they all think he is evil (because he is) and he is just trying to tell them how God did him dirty. I am almost feeling sorry for him, almost. It is so strange to hear Lucifer come out of Castiel’s mouth.
Amara is getting stronger; this cannot be a good sign. Even Rowena is getting worried about the power Amara has. We shall see what happens……

What sounds like a good idea? Summoning Lucifer. Yea that sounds like how I want to spend my Saturday night.

What the hell has happened? Apparently Crowley is joining Lucifer in Castiel’s mind?  Can a vessel really hold an archangel, an angel, and a crossroads demon at the same time? I don’t think this will end well. The boys will have to exercise Crowley as soon as possible.

The Horn doesn’t work and Amara takes Cas/Lucifer. What could she have in store for them? I am sure it is nothing good. Will Cas survive this? So many questions, I only hope we get some answers soon.

SUPERNATURAL RED MEAT

Werewolves, that is what the boys are hunting. I am not liking the way that this is set up, only because it starts at one point and then flashbacks to 48 hours before. I am not a huge fan of shows doing that, only because I multitask when I am watching television and it makes it harder to follow when they flashback.

One of the “victims” of the werewolf attack pretty much kills Sam. We all know how Dean will react to this news when he comes back to save these ungrateful butt wipes.

Dean decides the only way to save Sam is to die. That means will we probably see Billy and we all know what he thoughts on the boys coming back to life is. I have no idea what her problem is because honestly if she played her cards right she could probably have a little fun with one of the boys. Instead she is solely focused on her job and how boring is that. If I was a reaper I would have so much fun with it, especially with the boys.

Sam wakes up! That means Dean is going to kill himself and Sam will be alive! That could mean that Billy could keep Dean. Thankfully Dean doesn’t die, but he needs to hurry so he can go save Sam! Speaking of hurrying that brings up a good point. Dean overdosed so he could get Billy to hand over Sam, wouldn’t the doctor put him in a padded room for trying to commit suicide? I know in the real world they would.

In the meantime, one of those victims that Dean saved has officially turned. This will not end well. Of course everything ends the way you expect it to. Sam is the hero of the day and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

Supernatural SAFE HOUSE

Spoilers- Soul Eaters, yes they are exactly what they sound like. That is what the Dean and Sam face this week. What is different about it all?

The difference is that they have to go to a house that Bobby and Rufus had to go to a while ago. They took a break from hunting the darkness to take a pretty easy case that was supposed to be getting in and get out. Oh they were wrong.

Supernatural Safe House

Rufus and Bobby cannot agree on what they are hunting, Sam and Dean easily agree that they are hunting a soul eater and that they should find a permanent solution to the problem.

It was really nice to see Bobby again and to see him working a case made me miss him even more. He really was the glue that held everything together. You never get as happy as you do when you hear the word Idjit from Bobby’s mouth, it was like an old blanket and made you feel warm and comfortable.

I have a feeling that Bobby started getting cranky about the time that boys started hunting full-time. Rufus was probably born cranky though.

This episode was so great because you got to see some of your old favorites. We all have missed Bobby so much and the end of this episode was especially heart breaking because while Dean was in the nest he seen Bobby. I am sure that brought him some comfort or at least I hope it did.

Supernatural Safe House

A friend of mine made the suggestion of having a spin-off with Bobby and Rufus. How awesome would that be? Seeing how the old timers did things before the boys came around. I would totally watch it every time it came on. It would quickly become everyone’s favorite.

Supernatural JUST MY IMAGINATION

Imaginary friends are common in adolescence; you may have had  one as a child yourself. My child was one of those that had one.

Zanna are a type of magical creature that guides and guardian angels to children in need they come under the guise of imaginary friends.

When Sam was little he was one of those children that needed a little bit of guidance. He had an imaginary friend named Sully. Sully would talk to him about everything and anything that he needed to talk about.

Supernatural Just My Imagination

Dean has a hard time wrapping his head around the fact that imaginary friends are real. He can’t believe that they can have boyfriends as well.

The boys cannot use the usual disguise of FBI agents to get into a house so instead they have to say they are psychologist, and even wear the Mr. Roger’s sweater.

Supernatural Just My Imagination

Sam even lets it be known that he has been having visions of him and Lucifer in the cage again and he is taking that as a sign that he is supposed to get back in the cage. Of course Dean this this is stupid and that he shouldn’t get anywhere near the cage. I am inclined to agree with him.

This episode was great because it talked about something that we haven’t seen before. It gave parents a way to understand the reason why their children may have something that they do not understand. It is always nice to think that someone is watching over our children and if that takes an imaginary friend then that is what it takes. Being a parent myself it does make me see what my son was going through a little bit.

He needed someone to talk to about the problems that he was having and that he didn’t think I would understand. It was a way of him working out his own problems in his own way. I have a whole new respect for imaginary friends after this episode and just maybe there is a little bit of magic watching over our children.

Supernatural PLUSH

Sherriff Donna is back and she is having something weird going on in her town, like killer rabbit weird. I know every week is weird stuff going on when it comes to the boys, but for the Sherriff weird stuff doesn’t happen much.

Sam has been doing something weird as well.  What in the world could one of the boys do that isn’t considered weird anyway? Dean has caught Sam praying. PRAYING! When was the last time that one of their prayers answered? I cannot remember when that was. Anyway back to the weird stuff in Sherriff Donna’s town.

We have seen cursed items before, we have even seen suicidal alcoholic teddy bears (okay he was seriously my favorite), but this is the first time that we have seen a killer “Easter” bunny.  No matter what anyone does the head will not come off the person that is wearing it either.

Supernatural Plush

What could that mean? It means there is a ghost possessing people around town.  Have you noticed that there have been a lot of ghosts lately? It seems like the last couple of episodes have been about ghosts.  Not that I am complaining I kind of like it. The ghost episodes have a lot of humor and surprises in them and that is what we have come to love from Supernatural. The fact that there are twist and turns at every corner.

The ghost has possessed more than just one mask in town and one of them is Sam’s favorite. A clown! He has a real fear of them. Of all the things that the boys have seen Sam is scared of clowns! I find that hilarious.

Supernatural Plush gif

This episode is funny yet talks about some serious subjects and I would not suggest this episode for children. It could be a bit much for them and they do talk about some adult subject matter, more so then some of the other episodes that we have seen in the past.

SUPERNATURAL “Our Little World”

Castiel has been stuck in the bunker for a very long time and it is showing. A lot of weird stuff goes down in Fall Rivers, Massachusetts. It seems like every other episode that is where the boys end up. Back to Cas though, could he be the first angel with P.T.S.D.? He seems to be having a lot of the symptoms. Amara is growing up fast. Kids always grow up fast but this is eating one meal and gaining 4 years fast.

Supernatural Our Little World

The boys finally have it figured out that Crowley has Amara. It took them long enough! That would have been my first guess. Wow that wallpaper looks just like the switching channels episode with the Trickster. What is that sixties floral puke? I wouldn’t have put that up in my hotel if you gave me a million dollars for each flower.

Wait, Crowley doesn’t stay in hell? Isn’t that where the king of hell should be? That has to make it hard to rule it. How do you find a property that looks like hell? Yes, I would like medieval castle looking place that would be good for torturing souls and a base of command for hell. Looks like I have a lot to learn before I take over.

Can you kill the darkness? It seems like now would be a great time to have a light weapon. That is how I defeat the darkness in my house, I just turn on a light I doubt it would be that easy in their world though. We also found out that Crowley and his minions are living in an abandoned asylum. That seems more then fitting for him and his demons.

Metatron and Castiel having a showdown like they are in the O.K. Corral and somehow it is satisfying. I am not a huge fan of Metatron so would love to see Castiel whoop his butt.  It would be an epic battle, the fog would roll in and then there would lots of blood, lightening, smoke, and angel swords and when the dust settled you would have Castiel just looking down on the carnage in disgust.

Supernatural Our Little World

This is a great episode to see where things are with Amara, of course you end up with more questions than answers. It seems like that is how we are ending at the end of a lot of episodes. Of course this one gives you a HUGE answer that I will not reveal in this article. You will have to watch and see what it is.

SUPERNATURAL “THIN LIZZIE”

Lizzie Borden took an ax gave her mother forty whacks, when she saw what she done gave her father forty-one. This is an old schoolyard jump rope rhyme but has everything to do with this episode. I love researching the case of Lizzie Borden. If you don’t know anything about her, let me enlighten you a little. She was a young woman who lived in Fall River, Massachusetts. Lizzie lived with a very controlling father and step mother along with her sister. It is said that one-day Lizzie flew into a rage and killed her step mother and father. The courts were never able to convict her of this crime so she was acquitted. She lived out the rest of her days in a house not far from where the murders occurred, forever ostracized by everyone in town. The house is now a bed and breakfast that you can rent out. So you can sleep in the same bedroom that Lizzie allegedly killed her step-mother in.

Lizzie Borden

An angel binge watching anything is funny and even funnier when you think about Cas binge watching The Wire.  Sam is seriously giddy about having a case that has to do with Lizzie Borden. The boys are seriously intrigued when they find out their victim was descendent from the Bordens.  I would be too though; this is probably the one time that I am with Sam all the way.

Of course when they get the EMF out it immediately starts to light up indicting that there is a bunch of activity at the house, I mean this is one of the most famous cases in history so of course it is going to go crazy! Lights flickering are never a good sign unless, you are a Winchester and then they are a promising sign.  This only works if you are not staying at a bed and breakfast geared at making money.

When another murder happens in the house they decided it was a hoax, the boys know they have a case. How does a murder happen in a locked room? Especially when everything says it was not a ghost. Could this really be Lizzie Borden or something that is human?

This is an episode that you need to watch to appreciate. It was nice to have a break from the norm and even greater that it was a case that I know a lot about.

SUPERNATURAL “BABY”

 

****SPOILERS****Okay we all know who “Baby” is. She is this beautiful 1967 Impala that Dean drives and probably loves more than life. If you are a car person, then Baby is what dreams are made of.

Supernatural: Baby 1967 Impala

Dean is having cabin fever and will take any job no matter how small it is. So they head out on a possible case just to get out of the bunker.  We did get a great Dean quote from this episode. “Time heals all wounds Sammy, especially good time.”  I don’t know about healing all wounds but good times do help a lot.

The best thing about this series has to be the music. I don’t know about you but listening to some Classic Rock always makes me feel better, so to have a television show with, well let’s face it some hot as hell leads and Rock music has to be the best thing ever.

Imagine falling asleep with your brother on a road trip and waking up to your brother no longer being there but your father in his place. You would think you had just stepped into The Twilight Zone, which is what I imagined Sam thought when just that happened to him. In this moment though we were given another great quote this one from John Winchester himself…. “When has death stopped a Winchester?” How true is that statement? I mean come on Death tried stopping Dean so he killed him!

How in the world do they have Wi-Fi where ever they go? I can’t get a strong signal in my house but they can search for monsters on the computer in the middle of nowhere! It just isn’t fair. (and yes I did stomp my foot down like a toddler)

“God helps those who help themselves.”  Growing up southern I heard this phrase a lot. The boys should have had this figured out by now.  How are the boys going to help themselves though? Then again God hasn’t been much help to them in the past so why would he start now? You would think since people are supposed to be God’s greatest masterpiece that he would help them out more.

Who actually says “Goodnight Jerk” and “Goodnight Bitch” to each other? Well Sam and Dean of course. How else are they going to tell each other that they love one another?

Castiel watching ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, that is something that I would like to see. How fun would it be to introduce an angel to Netflix?

Do you remember a few seasons back when the FBI catches up to the boys and Lilith takes over a police station? Dean uttered a phrase that all 80’s babies love. He says “I did not shoot the deputy.” In this episode after a fight with a police officer that he has to shoot. He actually says “Turns out I did shoot the Deputy. “I love it! The only problem is; this creature they are hunting will not die.

Supernatural: Baby

Sometimes that sweet old lady down the way really isn’t a sweet old lady. Dean found that out the hard way. Why in the world would this creature need an army? I can only guess that it has something to do with the darkness. Even the monsters are scared of the darkness. This cannot be good.

This episode is great because you watch the whole thing from the view of “Baby”. Who hasn’t wondered what their car sees? Well with this episode you get to see exactly what a hunter’s car sees. It was great.

SUPERNATURAL “The Bad Seed”

Once was…… Rowena has done something to Castiel to make him kill Crowley (don’t worry the boys stopped that from happening) and it looks like we may have a baby darkness on our hands or young lady. Oh hell you know how demon/ancient stuff works by now.

***SPOILERS****

An infinite power in the hands of a child? That doesn’t sound good at all. I put any power in the hands of one of my children and it is a time bomb waiting to happen. What in the world would happen if they had the power of the darkness? This folks is why we do not kill Death. No matter how much he deserved it.

Crowley has possession of Amara, and is looking for his lovely mother. I know there are times that I have been angry at my mother but I have never wanted her taken out like he does, but then again my mother has never tried having an angel kill me.

The Bad Seed

Metatron seems to have a pretty good hiding spot, he is still in the wind even with the boys and all the angels looking for him. I know it is probably no good to hope that he has fallen off the edge of the world. He is one villain that no matter what you cannot like. Crowley is a villain that no matter what he does you still kind of want him to win but not Metatron. You pray (pun intended) that he will succumb to angel herpes or something.

I feel like we just entered The Twilight Zone or something, did I really just watch an angel and a demon sit down at a bar and 1. Not have an all-out war and 2. Have it followed with “and the bartender said”?

While Amara and Crowley talk philosophy, the boys capture Rowena and start to question her about the book of the damned. I think it will take a lot more than just a couple of questions to get her to talk. Anyone know the proper way to water board a witch? Rowena seems to actually be worried about what Dean may have unleashed onto the world. Honestly though we wouldn’t be in this if she just would have done what she was supposed to in the first place.

An evil Castiel does not sit well with me at all. It isn’t him and well yes I know that is part of the spell, but it left a bad taste in my mouth to see him chasing after a young girl and trying to kill her.

How do you make a witch killing bullet? I know werewolves are silver and I am guessing vampires would have either ultraviolet bullets or wooden ones, but witch killing bullets? Are they made with something like a hex bag in them? That’s it I have to make witch killing bullets now. And they still let her get away!

This episode may not have been the best but I do think it has answered some questions that we have had. Let’s find out what exactly this Darkness has in store for the people of the world.

Supernatural “Form and Void”

The darkness is upon us, the world looks like the zombie apocalypse has come (and in a way I guess it has).  There are not many that are not the “monsters” that roam the earth. Sam is turning into one of these things. What does that mean for the brothers? Dean is taking the baby and the deputy up to her Grandmother’s house.

Supernatural: Form and Void

Sam has taken one of the infected hostage, determined to find out some answers. Okay, well we knew from the last episode that the baby was special and freaky stuff was going to happen with her. She throws blocks across the room saying FEED ME! I am a Mom and when the kids where little I always wished they could tell me what they wanted but that is taking it a bit far.

If I had a job like the boys I would probably answer the phone “Ghostbusters” too, but hearing Dean say it while shoving food in his mouth had me spitting my drink all over my computer.

Wait, is that Death’s theme song? (And might I add my favorite Supernatural song)  It has been a long time since we have seen a Reaper, I kind of hate that she is delivering the message that there will be no more dying and then coming back for Sam and Dean, but I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later.  When one of the boys die for good, I know I will probably curl up in a ball on my bed and not leave for a week.

In less than one minute I went from feeling sorry for Sam, because he was having flashbacks about being in the hole, to seriously laughing until my stomach hurt, at seeing Crowley dressed as a priest. Seriously how does he plan on getting away with looking like that?

Supernatural: Form and Void

Can the darkness travel from body to body and possess people? It seems like it can and that it has possessed the deputy and she is killing because of it.

Sam is dying, and with the reaper’s warning of him not coming back, that has me worried, can he change that? Can he purify himself so that he is not unclean anymore? Did he just burn the zombie out of himself? He has found the cure! That was a happy moment!

The baby feeds on souls!!! Wait, she isn’t a baby anymore, she is more like a tween. Crowley just admitted to killing babies! He turned into a real jack hole! Of course Crowley gets to her first, I have no idea what that means for the future. I mean can the darkness be good? Isn’t the whole story of the boogie man all because the dark is scary? We shall see.

Until next time….
