THEN: “Dad’s on a hunting trip. And he hasn’t been home in a few days.”

NOW

The boys pop in to Precious Pawn, but they’re not interested in what’s on public display.  The wad of cash Dean flashes at the owner gains them access to the good stuff in the back.  It’s a treasure trove of mystical objects.  Your hands of glory, gris-gris bags, dragon’s breath, creepy dolls …

‘Supernatural’: I believe in us

Supernatural
“Prophet and Loss”
January 31, 2019

THEN: “Some people just can’t be saved.”

NOW

The Ma’lak Box rests on the bottom of the ocean.  Droplets of water ooze through its seams.  Dean tries to breathe through the rising panic, but he can’t ignore the groaning creak of the metal. I guess Billie’s instructions didn’t factor in the PSI of the Pacific Ocean.

‘Supernatural’: We don’t hug

THEN: “They all end the same way now.  Except one.”

NOW

Sam is in the library digging back through the angel lore looking for anything that might help them with Michael.  He says he can use some help, but Dean thought he might take Baby out for a spin.  Maybe swing by Donna’s cabin and visit Mary.

NOW

THEN: “I know what it’s like to see monsters.  I know that when they’re gone, they never really go away.”

NOW

Jack is stress eating Cookie Crisp cereal in the middle of the night as one does.  He’s worried about his mother in Heaven and fretful over Castiel’s deal with the Empty. He asks why Sam and Dean can’t know about it.  WHY INDEED, CAS? WHY. IN. DEED.

‘Supernatural’: It’s going to be an adventure

THEN: “Watch over him. Stay by his side as he dies.”

NOW 

Sam, Dean, and Cas are all gathered in Jack’s room.  The Boy of the Camellias tells them not to be sad.  A coughing spell comes over him and he drags in a breath from the oxygen mask by his bed—which honestly just made me laugh, because I’m dead inside.
