‘Supernatural’: It all falls apart

Supernatural
“Optimism”
November 15, 2018

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.

‘Legacies’: Who’s telling the story

Legacies
“This is the Part Where You Run”
“Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn”
November 1, 2018

I didn’t want to like Legacies.  I mean, I loved me some The Vampire Diaries back in the day, until the cure and the doppelgängers and the heretics and the hey hey made it too tedious to watch.  I didn’t want to like Legacies, because it may or may not have displaced Wayward Sisters from a time slot and an order to series.  

Which is ironic, because Supernatural’s first stab at a spin-off, “Bloodlines,” felt like it would have been right at home in the TVD universe.

I didn’t want to like Legacies, but dammit here we are.

‘Supernatural’: Let it go

Supernatural
“Nightmare Logic”
November 8, 2018

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

Supernatural
“Mint Condition”
November 1, 2018

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.

‘Supernatural’: And it’s all on me

Supernatural
“The Scar”
October 25, 2018

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 …

Sam’s Grief Beard.
