What is a spirit? When you Google the definition of spirit you get “the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character; the soul.” That is an excellent definition, but it raises so many more questions. What is a soul? Are we just emotional creatures and do our emotions live on after we die? I doubt any of us will get the answers to these questions in our lifetimes, but I think that Supernatural does an awesome job in trying to give us some answers.
Your reading this blog post right now on a device, that is running the internet. Think about how many devices that you have in your house right now that runs on the internet, wi-fi to be exact. Most people have smartphones, tablets, desktops, laptops, tv’s, video consoles, etc. We seem to want to connect with someone but what if we ended up connecting with something instead?
Imagine when you were in college that you did a very bad thing, like I know What You Did Last Summer bad thing. Now imagine that it wasn’t an actual person coming after you and your friends but the spirit of the person you killed. Yea this episode is just like that.
Have you ever had your GPS on in your vehicle and get mad at it and curse it a bit? I know I have, but I can also say that my GPShas never spoken back and it sure has not cursed back at me. I would probably pull over get out and never drive again, but that would be the smart thing to do and when are they ever smart in television shows? Of course the driver this time just looks at it and what happened well he ends up in a river. I know I will say thank you to my GPS from now on.
Ever been online and get a chat bubble pop-up from someone you don’t know? Well after you watch this episode you won’t be answering that chat anymore, this one was a real killer. <insert evil laugh>
You get the gist of what is going on. You know Sam and Dean will save the day but you will have to watch the episode to see how that happens. What this really hits on, and of course waits until the last five minutes to do so, is how Dean is gonna deal with that blasted mark on his arm. He decides that he is gonna try to find peace and not find a cure for the mark.
Sam of course protests this because they are so close to finding a cure. Really? Cain had this mark since he killed Able in the B.C. times and they expect to find a cure? I am sure if there was one Cain would have found it centuries ago.
Since Dean has come to terms with the mark does that mean they will be getting back to actually doing cases or will it still be a fight with the angels or with Crowley every episode? We still need answers on Crowley’s mother and a couple of other things and we do not have many more episodes in the season. Will we have to wait for a season 11? I guess we will just have to wait and see.
