Supernatural - "Nihilism" - Season 14 Episode 10 Review

By Kaylynn Kasandra


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.

Supernatural - "The Spear" - Season 14 Episode 9 Review

By Kaylynn Kasandra


I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed with this mid-season finale. I feel like it could have had way more action than it did. But, I can see that they are trying to save all the good stuff for the finale. I knew Michael had found a new vessel since there was no way he just up and left, however, I wasn’t expecting it to be female. Not that the gender of said vessel really matters. I can’t decide if I liked that vessel or the original otherworld Michael vessel more. I am leaning more towards the original I suppose.

It was nice to see that aside from a late night cereal binge Jack seemed to be pretty resilient. Unlike the Winchester’s when they die, he seemed to not fall down the rabbit hole of depression and jumped right back into things. So to me, that is pretty refreshing. However, I still feel like he should have regained some of his powers back in the whole ordeal, but I suppose we will have to wait and see how that all works out.

I did find some humor in the guys’ interaction with Ketch in this episode. I mean, as someone who once was able to have access to making the impossible possible it was funny to see Ketch resort to priority shipping to get the guys the help they needed. To which as we see, fails miserably when Michael intercepts the egg and quickly destroys it.

It was kind of silly of the guys to think Garth wasn’t being watched by Michael. I mean, he was in his company, and he did take the grace. So for the guys not to realize that maybe he was compromised was a bit silly. I’m just surprised Michael didn’t do much to Sam when he stole Jack. And as always, in true Winchester style, Sam refused to wait for back up in that rescue mission.

I was taken back slightly by how easily it seemed Kaia gave over the spear though. It should be quite interesting to find out what her motivation for that was. My guess, maybe she found her true love in this world, who knows. That’s the only thing I can think of right now that may have triggered her to give up the spear.

I am not too surprised by the way this episode ended though. I mean, it was just too easy for them to get the spear that I knew something had to come in and jack things up for them. Michael seemed to have been several steps ahead of them throughout the whole episode. He led them to exactly where he wanted them. And I feel like Michael’s whole motivation for not being harder on Sam when he stole Jack was so that he would be there to see Michael once again take hold of Dean’s vessel.

I mean what could be worse than the possibility of having to destroy your own brother in order to save the world? I just wish I knew how Michael figured Dean was finally weak enough not to fight it this time. I suppose we will have to wait until January to find out.

Supernatural - "Byzantium" - Season 14 Episode 8 Review

By Kaylynn Kasandra


Holy bananas, I feel like so much happened, yet, so little. The episode starts with Jack dying. I can’t say I thought that would happen this soon. But, in true Winchester fashion, the guys were able to figure out a way to get Jack back. They called on Lily: “the angel killing psycho” as Dean calls her. She said she had magick that could help Jack if he was willing to give up a piece of his soul. Something the guys were way too eager to agree to. Of course she tried to change her mind until Dean called her out on not having any humanity left.

But, like with everything else in this show, nothing comes easy. The shadow/empty had come back from the nothing, hell bent on collecting Jack for itself. And honestly, I feel silly for not realizing last week just who it was. I guess I am still holding out hope Lucifer will make his return. But, I digress. Once again the angels suffered as the shadow/empty came and killed most of what little angels were left. Heaven is now seriously suffering in terms of numbers.

On the upside, Jack was able to recognize he was in Heaven and finally got to meet his mother. A reunion that was short lived, as Castiel was able to barter to get the shadow/empty to take him instead of Jack thus allowing Jack to return to Earth alive. But of course, there was a catch, it would be on the shadow/empty’s terms. Castiel has no idea when it will come calling, as it wants nothing more than to see him suffer. I’m hoping it will give him enough time to come up with a plan because Supernatural without Castiel would be the worst.

I was happy to see that both Lily and Castiel’s sacrifices weren’t in vain. Cas was able to get the location of Michael which is huge, even if they don’t have dark Kaia or the spear. And Lily was granted entry to heaven where she is to be finally reunited with her daughter. My worry is, how long are Cas and Jack going to be able to keep Castiel’s sacrifice a secret? I mean, sooner or later he’s going to be taken to the nothing and there is no way the guys are gonna let that happen without a fight.

I am hoping that somehow, someway, Castiel will be able to get Michael to take his place in the nothing, therefore killing two birds with one stone. But that’s going to take some serious work to make that happen.

It seems like next week we will finally be seeing Michael again, so things should be getting pretty crazy. It would be nice to see Jack with his powers again, but I guess we will have to wait and see. I mean he did take the grace before he died, so I’m not sure how that would work upon his resurrection. The spell took his soul, not the grace he ingested. So, I’m anxious to see if that will have any impact on the fight that is about to go down. I feel like we have been waiting for this for a long time. And next week being the mid-season finale, it should be good.
