I’m not too sure what I was expecting from the mid-season return, but overall I suppose I wasn’t too impressed with the episode. The whole Michael ordeal didn’t really amount to too much. Yes, he had the monsters under his control, and yes they managed to kill hunters. But, they weren’t able to even get close to getting the ones who mattered.
Once again the guys have managed to get out of things rather easily due to friends, in important places. Their connections to the reapers have come in handy twice in this episode. It was nice to see them pull through and once again give Dean a heads up as to the only way out of the end of times. The fate of the world has rested upon them one too many times. However, that is their thing after all.
I couldn’t help to think the cheese factor was quite high in this episode as well. I wouldn’t expect anything less from this show though. I did at several points find myself comparing Sam to a small child who lost their puppy. His facial expressions were quite childlike when he was showing sadness and fear. Jack seemed to have pulled a few of those looks from Sam’s playbook as well in this episode. He had quite a few cheesy expressions during the monster standoff.
I can’t say I am too surprised that Jack used his powers. He definitely acts like a Winchester, never listening. I was happy to see Castiel explained to him the danger in what he did. I mean, that’s all we need, another Lucifer. If he gives up his soul who knows who Jack would turn into.
I honestly don’t think Michael is going to stay contained much longer in Dean’s brain. It was a smart move though. I was impressed with Dean’s ability to regain control so quickly. He has endured so much trauma already, but as Sam said, Dean thrives on it. We should see how long he can stay in control though. It is part of the Winchester pattern to get lost in their sorrow. And that seems to always happen after saving the world.
I’m hoping next week will have a little bit more action. We had some this episode but not as much as you’d expect after a hiatus. I’m just happy it looks like we will be seeing Lucifer soon.
