TIME LOOPS? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??
I KNEW IT. I knew it, I knew it, I knew it, I KNEW IT. I KNEW IT. I mean, I didn’t know HODOR, but I knew it.
UGH. WHY DIDN’T I WRITE IT?

THEN: “Two players. Two sides. One is light. One is dark.”
The Chuck and Cascifer reunion isn’t going well. Chuck just wants to let bygones be and move on. Cascifer isn’t ready to let go of the hurt of being discarded or his anger that Dad likes his new family better. He’s also decided that the fight against the Darkness isn’t bigger than family.
“The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Team Amara. Go Amara.”
Cascifer is acting like a snotty teen, right down to locking himself in Sam’s room and blasting angry music. “This is like the worst episode of Full House ever.” Dean isn’t wrong, and it’s only the first of many elements in this episode that I don’t care for. Lucifer has lost his menace, and without it, he just seems small. He’s an angel. He’s the Morningstar. But he feels too human here, and I don’t like it.

THEN: “This isn’t her story. It’s mine.”
Sam and Dean gawp in confusion at the guy who looks like a writer of middling genre fiction/prophet of the Lord, but who the Samulet is telling them is actually God himself.

This episode had everything: reunions, good feels, romance, Sansa being a badass, death, FIRE!, fire boobs, dead misogynists, and hopefully the birth of what will be everyone’s new favorite ship: Torienne. Or Briemund? Which do you like better? I’m leaning toward Briemund, myself. BRIEMUND 4LYFE.

Oh how sweet: we’re in a small church somewhere in Mexico where a parish is still celebrating Mass. It’s nice to see some people stick with tradition and faith and find hope in face of horror and death. Yes, yes, the priest had been worried that God had abandoned from them, but now he knows that they are being tested, that the evil that has befallen them wants them to turn away from Him. It feeds on doubt, and they must not feed it. Instead, they must fight. The parishioners take their communion, and then promptly march outside and grab a weapon from an alarmingly large pile.
