I have altered my prediction on this episode. From everything I have seen, I think it will go down like this. They will start with the other half of the Mary discussion. They will flash back to Mary and Ketch kicking ass. Dean will freeze Mary out. Sam will try and mediate and Dean will tell him to pick a side. Sam will choose the wrong side (again). Sam will go check in with Mary and get to see the LoL in action. The alpha will make a guest appearance and direct the Vampire's raid (but won't participate in it). Ketch will have a sit down with Dean that won't go well. The vampires will raid the LoL, kill lots of LoL and hunter recruits. Mary and Sam save the day. Sam tells Dean to give the LoL a chance. Dean refuses and the boys have another one episode break up. I don't know if I am going to watch this tonight but I really hope I am wrong.
We may, but they'll most likely only be redshirts and we'll still have Mick and Retch, probably to the end of the season. What I hope for, that will probably not be mentioned, is the fact that it was Dean that killed the Alpha Vamp's "mother" Eve, and not the group as a whole.
Team Free Will. One ex-blood junkie, one dropout with six bucks to his name, and Mr. Comatose over there. ~Dean

Recap of vampires to this point, with an emphasis on Vampire!Dean and MoC!Dean, needless recap of the LoL with an emphasis on their toys, a brief reference to the Colt, and last week's Mary confession.
Cut to Now and Mary still confessing. Dean is furious. Mary claims what the LoL "are doing, it's a better way."
Sam looks betrayed and asks her how long she kept it from them. Mary admits that the crappy episode the other week was them running an errand for the LoL. The Brothers point out there were casualties and when Mary admits she feels bad, Dean says, "Good."
Cut to Mary and Retch arriving at some random warehouse with security, at night, in the snow. Retch is talking about awesome and easy their new toy was. And that right there is the LoL's Achilles Heel--if it's not easy, they're dead.
Ugh, another Super-Sekrit Bunker Base. So not interested. So boring.
Back to the Mary confession conversation. Dean calls her out on being absent almost all of his life and all of Sam's. Juxtaposed with Mary checking her texts begging Dean to talk to her and Dean giving back radio silence, Dean kicks her out of the Bunker. Sam backs him up (yay, Sam).
I am so very, very ready for the LoL to get burned to the ground, never to be seen or mentioned again.
Retch thinks they've got the best Winchester in Mary. Mick disagrees, saying that his sons are the de facto rulers of Hunter America and Retch doesn't get to take the call.
In the Bunker, Sam is having second thoughts and Dean is desperately seeking a new hunt. Dean gets mad when Sam suggests they talk to her, even though Dean's the one who has been in touch with her.
Dean calls Sam out on his "peacemaker shtick. You're always playing the middle, man. For once, pick a side."
After Dean leaves, Sam checks his texts and sees Mary asking him to contact her, urgently. Sam shows up at the Super-Sekrit LoL base. Guess he picked a side.
Mary still insists the LoL are a good choice and goes for Sam's soft spot that he wants a normal life.

As Retch confronts Dean at the Bunker with a peace offering of whiskey, Sam gets invited to a briefing at the LoL Super-Sekrit Base where they brag about blatantly violating American sovereignty and slaughtering Americans (albeit, vampire Americans) all over Michigan. Meanwhile, a vampire dude is talking to one of the survivors and tells her he has a plan.
The Alpha Vamp shows up. Am I terrible for rooting for him this week?

At the Bunker, Retch is trying to feel Dean out. Dean says simply that Retch is trying to "recruit" him. Retch comes up with the usual lie that she went rogue. Dean is not impressed. Retch steps entirely wrong-footed in his arrogance all over trying to turn Dean and compares himself to Dean as another killer. Dean continues not to be impressed.
Dean asks him about the "line on vamps" Retch claims to have.
Back at the base, we have a stereotypically klutzy computer nerd (who is apparently a low-level Hunter) geeking out over Sam. Somehow, nobody ever seems to geek out over Dean this season. You know, the Firewall?
Mitch admits that the LoL are having trouble attracting good Hunters. Might be because those Hunters have you blokes accurately pegged as a bunch of amateurs from across the Pond, Mick.
Meanwhile, Dean and Retch are hunting vampires the low-tech way, but find nothing and no one--except the survivor we saw before. Retch starts to beat on her, while Dean watches, increasingly not thrilled, and Dean finally stops him. He talks to the girl. He says he won't let her go, but he will "make it quick."
Oh, and the Super-Sekrit Base is about to get taken down, as the girl tells Dean.

The vampire method of killing their way in is not especially scientific, but it sure is working. Sam and Mary immediately take charge, with Mary telling everyone over the intercom to "fall back" and not engage. Then she and Sam go out and grab a vamp to bring back in and interrogate. He tells them Alpha Vamp came back. One of the redshirts, a South Asian girl, claims the Alpha has been in Morocco for a decade, but Sam corrects her, saying he's been in the U.S. for at least the past five years (as we know from seasons six and seven). Mary asks if anyone in the room has killed anything and only the nerdy computer guy has besides Sam and Mary. Mary points out the base is not well-defended and Mick admits they don't have any contingency plans. Mary insists Mick bring out the Colt, which shocks the hell out of Sam. Mary admits she stole it from Ramiel, but Mick says they don't have any bullets.
No problem, says Sam, still thoroughly pissed off. He's got the recipe from Bobby, memorized.
Annnd of course, not all of the ingredients are readily at hand.
Meanwhile, Dean and Retch are riding to the rescue.
One of the redshirts gets it, from the Alpha, while Mick is trying to do the spell to make the bullets. The South Asian girl attacks him and also gets killed. As she dies, Mick slams the briefcase shut on the Colt and grabs the bullets. The Alpha drops the girl and stares after Mick.

So, it turns out the nerdy guy is working with the Alpha and he knocked out Mary. His job is to keep things quiet for the Alpha.
The Alpha calmly informs Mick that he didn't interfere in England because it was..."well...England." (love the contemptuous intonation of that) However, he is in charge of America. He intends to have Mick call up London and tell them to back off, while getting eaten onscreen.
Sam shows up and grabs the Colt. He proposes to make a deal with the Alpha--he can have Mick and he will back off, while Sam and Mary escape, and the uneasy truce between the humans and the vamps will continue.
Mick attacks Sam, but it turns out he's giving Sam a bullet. The Alpha calls Sam's bluff, then realizes what happened, right before Sam shoots and kills him.
Meh. Getting quite tired of Sam getting all these improbable and rather boring kills.
thesnowleopard: The season finale was better than last season's finale. Hell, the whole season was better than last season. Some episodes were worth watching. Others were kinda messy.

onali: Since I haven't been watching the show I don't know how some (former) dead characters have returned (in what form) but I have to say that I don't miss the show at all. Is it still worth watching or not?
May 7, 2018 19:43:37 GMT -5
onali: It's been a long time since I've been here. Only watched the Season premiere then .... nothing. Every now and again I watched what you were rating the episodes and yes I've seen some spoilers (can some people just please stay dead??!!!!!) (1)

SkeksisGirl: I'm not, and I think I'm gonna stop working SPN conventions. BTW, welcome!

gopacgo12: Ok, so is anyone here going to the Las Vegas 2018 Supernatural convention, because if so I will see you there, but i'd just like to talk to some others

thesnowleopard: I have to wait until tomorrow night to "live recap." I don't currently have live TV, just streaming.
Oct 12, 2017 20:17:07 GMT -5
paforrest: Excited is not what I'm feeling. But I've set the dvr, will live watch Gotham & Will & Grace, then The Good Place off the dvr. Maybe tomorrow I'll FF through SPN if, and only IF, I hear there's any good Dean.
Oct 12, 2017 14:18:09 GMT -5
onali: So ... who is excited for tomorrow? I still have to re-watch the last couple of episodes, but I am lacking the enthousiasm.

SkeksisGirl: Just FYI guys, Luxshine is going to be in Florida come mid October. She and I are going to be vending as artists at Spooky Empire. So much hugs and puppies to her when she's here.

luxshine: Thank guys. There was ANOTHER earthquake here today, but this time I didn´t even feel it. Just dealing with a bit of PTSD. So if you can send fluffy things and cute Jensen or Misha pics my way, I´ll appreciate it.
Sept 23, 2017 16:37:18 GMT -5
onali: Glad you all are ok over there.
Sept 22, 2017 19:31:28 GMT -5
paforrest: So glad you're okay, luxshine! Absolutely heartbreaking situation. And I'm terrified and devastated for Puerto Rico and the other islands impacted by Maria. Mother Earth is very pissed off at us.
Sept 20, 2017 7:25:07 GMT -5
luxshine: New Earthquake here in Mexico. Now... a bit more savage than last week's. But I'm ok!
Sept 19, 2017 20:37:51 GMT -5
SkeksisGirl: And now we may have Maria...
Sept 19, 2017 13:10:20 GMT -5
luxshine: I'm glad people from Florida are ok! We had a bit of an earthquake in Mexico, but other than three terrified kitties, I'm ok.
Sept 18, 2017 19:14:05 GMT -5
paforrest: Belatedly checking in from Florida. My roof held and no trees fell on the house, miraculously enough. Spent two days cleaning up debris in the yard, but we fared better than most, for which I'm grateful. But I feel for so many that are suffering.

SkeksisGirl: Checking in from FL, I survived Irma with power and no damage to my apartment.

SkeksisGirl: Oh, the new owners for Megacon are just turning it into a meat grinder. They've screwed over a lot of people.
May 27, 2017 16:59:57 GMT -5
paforrest: Yeah, I've been to a few Megacons in the past - they can be a cluster. But I was talking about how years ago I'd have been thrilled if a Creation SPN con finally came here. Now it is and I don't care and can't justify the money. Changing times.
