So it looks like Drexel will have to continue to wait for Lucifer’s return to Hell. And I have to lay it to the kid, he has been pretty optimistic for as many times as he has been choked and put in his place. And it seems as though Asmodeus, one of the Knights of Hell, can be added to list of people who have done so. It seems the word has been spread of Jack’s arrival and it’s not just the demons and Angels who have been tracking him down.
Donatello makes his return as it seems that even if his connection to God may be cut off, he can’t help but feel and be pulled to the energy Jack gives off. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. Dean still isn’t sold on thinking Jack isn’t evil, and being the literal spawn of Satan, can you blame him? But, Donatello seems to agree Sam, and doesn’t read Jack as being evil or toxic like his father. Given Sam’s history of being overly sympathetic to dark and evil things it’s hard to trust his judgment, even with Donatello co-signing. After seeing Jack’s failed attempt at getting warding sigil tattoos and the accidental harm he inflicted to the artist in the process, I understand Dean standing firm in his belief too.
Dean is still stuck brooding over the loss of Castiel and Mary which isn’t helping with his disdain toward Jack. And even Sam tried to give him a reality check in regards to dwelling on the bad things. But as always, their personal feelings, inner drama, and arguments between them seem to throw things off track once again.
They were so distracted that Asmodeus slipped right in under the guise of Donatello and took Jack away to Jasper, WY. It seems as though the Knight of Hell wanted to relive his past once again and release the shedim, the very thing that had once earned him the scar her bares. But he isn’t powerful enough so he has to feed Jack a bunch of lies to get him to open a portal for him. And of course Jack being the naive three days old he is, obliges thinking he is doing the world a favor. Poor kid. Luckily, after being slightly derailed by some demons, the Winchesters with Donatello are right behind Jack and Asmodeus.
Not quite understanding who they were up against Dean made the choice to shoot Asmodeus. In turn this allowed Jack to see for himself he wasn’t Donatello and allow the guys to realize he was actually a Knight of Hell. Before the guys can react Asmodeus had the trio in a choke hold struggling for their lives. Sam and Dean being the only ones there for Jack for his entire short life, this angered him. He lost focus opening the portal just as the shedim were creeping their way out. When Jack demanded Asmodeus leave his friends be Asmodeus disappeared in flash. And if I know anything of this Supernatural universe, I have a feeling he was smart enough to make his exit before Jack could smite him.
Speaking of smiting, we did get a few glimpses of Lucifer and Mary back in their alternate reality as Lucifer describes it. It seems as though in true Lucifer fashion he isn’t the greatest at making allies. We see him force Mary to be at his side after saving her from some creep hunter. And we also see him smite a small group of angels before Archangel Michael comes down to confront him. It seems as though Lucifer isn’t the only one to demand help from someone and we see Michael do the same to him. This should be pretty interesting to see play out.
And I can’t say Dean’s threat to Jack ending too well if I am going to be quite honest. I mean, he thinks the kid is evil and he tells him he will kill him if need be. Not really a smart call, but hey, he isn’t the brains so much as the brute in the operation. But, I am glad he took the knife from Jack because, yikes.
