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.
