I can’t even handle this show anymore. My heart is crushed. Okay, so maybe I am being dramatic, but holy feels! This first half of the finale was emotional on its own, and then you couple it with all that went down in part two and I can’t deal. It was no surprise that the finale ended with a cliffhanger. And now I am going to be obsessively waiting on season thirteen as I am sure most of you will be as well. Watching Dean try to save his mom was quite heart-wrenching. I can’t even lie, I wasn’t really sure if he would pull it off. And seeing Dean get injured right off the bat didn’t give me the confidence that they’d come out winning. Luckily, I was proven wrong. Dean quite literally pulled out the big guns (grenades) and was able to break out of the bunker with Sam and that evil British Men of Letters woman in tow.
With the help of said evil woman Dean stays behind to get inside his mom’s head so he can free her from the spell she is under. It was only a matter of time before I knew Ketch would track Mary down, and I was right. His feelings for her made him easy prey when he goes to save her. And I cheered out loud when Mary snapped out of her spell and jumped in to save Dean. His guilt trip worked like a charm! Watching her put a couple bullets into Ketch was beyond satisfying.
And can we talk about how badass Sam was this episode? He steps up big time and leads the crusade against the BMOL. It was nice seeing him not wimp out, even if he did crumble slightly at the mention of Lucifer’s return. Watching him this season, he’s growing on me more and more. So long as he doesn’t go back to wimpy, over-emotional Sam. And seeing him deny the BMOL the help they requested was awesome! I wasn’t sure what he would say at first. When he said, “pass” and proceeded to off the big boss lady… classic. It wasn’t too surprising for me that Crowley wasn’t dead. It was implied before that he moved his soul to a rat, and we found out that is exactly what he did.
We finally got to see Kelly and Castiel again, hiding away in the Pacific Northwest. And right outside their hiding spot, we finally get to see this cosmic threat that we have been waiting for. There was a rip in the fabric of space and time. And that crazy alternate universe on the other side reminded me a lot of the purgatory we saw in the past. I had a feeling it would be Bobby who Castiel ran into when he was there. My response wasn’t that different from Dean’s when he told them about his angel killing bullets. That would definitely come in handy! When they head back to our reality and Lucifer had caught up to them, I had no idea what to expect from their showdown. And I am not going to lie, this crazy show needs to stop killing off my favorite people. First we found out Rowena was dead and couldn’t help return Lucifer to the cage. And then, during their plan to trap Lucifer in the alternate reality, Crowley did the most unselfish thing and killed himself. Sadly, his selfless act wouldn’t save my favorite angel Castiel. Thus why I am so devastated. I can’t even comprehend this show without him. Was Bobby’s appearance foreshadowing to the fact we would lose yet another beloved character? I would love to know what you all think. All I am saying is that if this creepy God of a child doesn’t bring Castiel back, I will be pissed. And he better not bring him back as a bad guy, I don’t think I could handle that either.
I have a feeling a major plot for next season will include trying to bring their mom Mary back from the alternative reality she was drug into by Lucifer. Hopefully she and Bobby will be able to join forces and make some serious things happen over there. I’m just glad she has the brass knuckles with her, it’s better than being completely effed with no form of defense. The nephilim is growing at quite an alarming rate, which is giving me Darkness vibes. So let’s hope like the Darkness, Jack will be misunderstood and not inherently evil. But the way they made it look when the finale wrapped up, it’s hard to say. The show is great at making us feel like it will go one way and then switches things up. And I really, really can’t wait to see how next season plays out. I have a feeling it’s going to be just as good, if not better than the God vs. Darkness plot we saw before.
