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!
“War of the Worlds”
November 23, 2017
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.”

“I just need a damn win.”
Sam and Dean are still standing in the street gawping. Cas calmly says he was dead and then he annoyed an ancient cosmic being and now he’s back. That’s good enough for Dean. He says, “Welcome home, pal,” and puts his arms around his angel. HUGGING! YAY! HUGGING!
Cas tells them he was in the Empty. Sam asks him what it was like. Cas is like, ‘Uh, empty? A great nothingness? The name kind of says it all’.

THEN: “Promise my family will be okay.”
Jimmy Novak walks through the front door. He calls his wife’s name. Amelia rushes down the stairs and into his arms. She sobs that she thought she’d lost him again. Jimmy says Castiel is gone. He’s home now. It’s okay. It’s okay …
Claire strokes her husband’s face. Dark blood begins to seep through the sleeve of her cardigan. Jimmy doesn’t notice. He asks how Claire is. Amelia’s face crumples and she cries out.
