THEN: “Vampires! Gets funnier every time I hear it.”

And then Sheriff Jody Mills and her sassy pixie hairdo kill the vampire with a fire ax because that’s how the HBIC do.

NOW

Jody is waiting outside the station when Sam and Dean arrive the next morning.  There are smiles and warm greetings, but sadly, no hugging. Boo! Whither the hugging?!

Sam asks after her shoulder. Jody shrugs. She asks how they’ve been.  Dean lies that they’re peachy. Sam winces and gives a more honest accounting. “Touch and go.”

‘Supernatural’: It matters what you do

THEN

Mandroids. Laser eyes.

NOW

Dean has a case – a man seemingly murdered by his dead wife. He’s surprised that Sam is interested. He wonders if they’re going to leave “Damien” in a circle of holy oil to Netflix and chill while they check it out. Sam says no, they’re going to bring EJ with. Dean balks. He calls it adventures in babysitting the Antichrist.

Writer Meredith Glynn seems to be having a contest with herself to see how many one-liners she can cram into this scene.

THEN

I went to Missouri and I learned the truth. Also,

PUDDING!

NOW

Several days have passed since the boys brought EJ home. Dean is holed up in his room drinking and blasting the Stones through his headphones. EJ has been keeping to himself as well. Sam brings him a laptop and the thumb drive with Kelly’s final message. Sam says he hopes that it can begin to answer some of EJ’s questions.

The boy seems both overwhelmed and comforted by his mother’s words. “It’s not fate. You are who you choose to be. And I know you’re going to be okay. You are going to be amazing.” She reminds him that he has an angel watching over him.

‘Supernatural’: The rising son

THEN

Azazel was a fanatic.  Ramiel was a fisherman.  Dagon had her toys. Asmodeus has his hobbies.

NOW

The doors burst open. Blinding white light spills into Hell’s throne room. The light recedes to reveal a tall man with the fashion sensibilities of End!verse Lucifer (or a Kentucky colonel) and the accent of a True Blood vampire.

He strides to the dais and announces that he is Ahs-Moh-Deus, Prince of Hell, there to rule and restore fire and brimstone order until Lucifer & son return.

THE ROAD SO FAR

Mary came back. Lucifer came back. The Colt came back. The Colt was destroyed. Eileen Leahy came back. Eileen Leahy died because BuckLeming are bullshit. The grenade launcher came back. Jody and Claire are wayward AF. Cas almost died. Crowley brought him back. Floating Space Vagina happened. Bobby came back – sort of. Crowley died. Kelly died. Cas died. Lucifer and Mary fell through the Floating Space Vagina.

What doesn’t merit mention in the montage – at least directly – is the British Men of Letters. Because Show has looked at its life and looked at its choices and realized that the BMoL was a poorly executed bad idea.
