“Various & Sundry Villains”

“I hate witches. They’re always spewing their bodily fluids everywhere…It’s creepy, y’know, it’s downright unsanitary!”
Cas and Lucifer spend the episode cooling their heels in warded cells and jawing at each other. It’s mostly filler but for the part when Cas tells Lucifer that his son is a good, kind, and thoughtful boy who doesn’t look anything like his father.

“What the cuss?!? A vampire??”
Oshkosh, Nebraska. A car pulls in to Mann-burned out Y-’s Truck Stop Cafe to fill up. The driver’s credit card is declined at the pump, so the young woman goes inside to pay. The room stills and all eyes turn to her when she walks in. The energy is not friendly. The cashier is downright slimy. After gassing up and declining a gaunt Manson looking dude’s offer to wash her windows, the woman drives away.
Some distance down the road she pulls over with a flat tire. I would drive on the rims before I stopped on a dark murder road. I HAVE driven on the rims rather than stopping on a dark murder road. She tries to flag down a passing semi, but the truck roars past.

“Something bad’s coming.”
Something badass, you mean. Let’s just take a moment to enjoy, shall we?
Five seconds of THEN and I’m already in my feels.

“If you ever need someone to talk to, someplace to go … my door’s always open.”
An artist is expecting a prospective buyer. His expectations are low. Studio visits rarely end in a sale. The door bell buzzes and there’s Jack. Hello!
He always seems so pleased to meet new people.

“I’ve got this.”
Jack is still off the grid and Ketch has gone to ground, so Dean sits in the Bunker’s kitchen cleaning his gun. I really only mention it as an excuse for this:
Mmmm … Dean cleaning guns …

THEN: “Jody Mills is good people.”
Alex walks out of school hand-in-hand with her letter jacket boyfriend, Henry. Another friend catches up to them and announces she’s in the presence of royalty. They’re in the lead for prom king and queen!
Alex scoffs at the news. Henry sure, but it seems unlikely for her. She wonders that people even still do that? “I thought it was an 80’s thing.” Henry assures her it’s very much a thing. There are crowns, even. He tells her they should have fun with it. He’ll wear the dress and she can wear the tux. Alex sasses that Henry doesn’t have the boobs for her dress.
They’re sweet and adorable together and yay! Alex has nice things! For now!

“If I plan to do anything else stupid I will let you know.”
Jack is still at liberty and in the wind. Castiel worries that the absence of signs or leads means Jack has been dragged to Hell by Rock Me Asmodeus or spirited to Heaven. So he resolves to go and politely ask one of his angelic brethren if they have the kid.
Solid plan. What could possibly go wrong?
Dean tells his angel not to do anything stupid. It’s how Team Free Will says, “I love you.”
