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.

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.

‘Supernatural’: It all falls apart

THEN: “Zombie ghost orgy huh? Well, that’s it, I’m torching everybody.”

NOW

Jack is sitting alone in the Bunker’s kitchen.  He takes a sip of coffee, testing to see if it’s right.  He picks up the sugar dispenser and holds it over his cup for an 8-count (as one does, if you’re me).  Dean walks in and is like, simmer down with the diabeetus, Wilford.  Jack explains that, without his powers, everything tastes different.  He can’t get his coffee how he likes it, so.

THEN: “It was just a wish. I wished for Mom to live. That Mom never died, we never went hunting and you and me just never uh… you know.”

NOW

Dean pauses in the doorway of the Bunker library where Sam is holding a morning briefing with the AV Clubbers.  Dean seems amused; Sam seems embarrassed and quickly breaks up the meeting.  It feels at first like Dean is busting chops, but it’s not like he can just come right out and tell Sam that he’s proud of him.  Approval is something they each got so rarely from John that they don’t know what to do with it.  So Dean has to tease.

‘Supernatural’: Time to slice and dice

THEN: We’ve got slicing and dicing, scream queens and killing machines … and racist ghost trucks. Never forget.

NOW

Dean is in his room, living his best surrounded by empties and snacks wrappers sprawled out on his bed eating cold pizza horror movie marathon life.  He’s been holed up for a week. Cas is busy with Jack.  Kaia Ren is in the wind.  They have no clue where Michael is, and—not that he’s complaining—the house is full of strangers.

I would hide, too.

THEN: “I only go to one place– the Bad Place. It’s just… blood and death and monsters.”

NOW

Dean is back, back in the safety of his family and the Bunker, but struggles to overcome a horror that still confronts him.  Like a nightmare, it’s always just there.  Watching …
