Another Nep Duo entry for our sins this week.
There's a debate going over on Spoiler TV whether this ep (being their fourth) means the Nep Duo won't be writing 12.22, or whether it means we'll be "blessed" with a fifth episode from them this season. If they do go for five, that would be a good metaphor for how much of a hot mess this season has been so far.

Recap of Nickifer, the Demon Baby Mama Drama, the LoL, and Mary.
Cut to Now (well, Oxbridgeish in 1987). Boring and stupid English stereotypes abound as two boys (Mick and Retch, I gather) head to a meeting at "Kendricks" with a classic stereotypically bitchy British Headmistress. Ugh. So. Much. Ugh.
So, guess it's just Retch (sorry, turns out to be Mitch, having a dream), then, since she leaves them alone in a fight to the death. He kills his best friend.
Cue title credits and the Brothers are on the road, while they talk to Eileen about tracking down Kelly (the Devil's Baby Mama). She's off to track them some more.
Back at the Bunker, Sam wants Dean to call Crowley. Dean doesn't want to. They find Mick there, who claims the Bunker is "our house" and the key opens every Bunker in the world. Ugh. So. Much. Hate. This episode is gonna be tough to sit through.
Turns out Mick didn't know about Kelly and Lucifer's Nephilim child. So, official confirmation that the LoL are WAY out of their league.
So, the Brothers fill him in (after Dean without apology says they never mentioned it before because "need to know") and Mick freaks out. A very insulting discussion amongst men about abortion and women's choice and how the Power of Motherly Wuv prevented Kelly from aborting the Ugly-Ass Plot Point.
Cut to Dagon talking to Lucifer about his baby and the "package" (i.e., moronic Kelly). Dagon says Kelly will "last long enough" to give birth.
Cut to Mick having more of a nightmare about killing his buddy (who really did not want to die). He's awakened by Headbitchstress from the dream. She's part of the leadership and guess what? They're freaking out over the Nephilim sitch. She insists Mick get the Winchesters on board right now or kill them [cue mocking laughter from the audience].

So, Kelly is having misgivings about her pregnancy. She insists Dagon take her to a doctor. Dagon mind-whammies the doc into saying everything is normal, even though it's not. He still gets killed by a demon later on.
At the Bunker, Dean is hungover because Mitch allegedly could drink him and Sam under the table (SO. MUCH. HATE). Mitch mentions that Mary is with Retch (cue an unnecessary scene between those two in which no new territory is mined).
At the LoL Bunker, Mitch gets a visit from Henchbitchtress's lap dog, a smarmy little public school stereotype.
Chez Crowley, Lucifer is submitting to Crowley as a new tactic and still claiming to be the eldest brother. SHOW, GET IT STRAIGHT. MICHAEL IS THE OLDEST. ALWAYS HAS BEEN.

Halfway through the ep and so far, *nothing* has happened but set-up.
So, Dean is leaving voice messages on Castiel's phone and the Brothers are meeting with Eileen. She caught up with the demon who killed Kelly's doc, killed him with an angel blade and got Dagon's number.
As much as I love Eileen, remember when demons had TK and powers and stuff?
Back to Crowley, who is haranguing the troops about their loyalty to Lucifer. He unwisely brings Lucifer in to submit to him. Apparently, Crowley is unaware that Lucifer is in communion with Dagon and just biding his time.
Lucifer immediately starts undermining Crowley (with his back to Crowley) by winking and leering and sneering and glowing-eyes-y at the demons.
Ugh, so much stupid in this episode. And *still*, nothing has happened but set-up.
Kelly is sending Dagon on errands when she gets a call from Sam, who pretends to be her (dead) doctor's assistant. Eileen gives him a thumbs-up and Mitch shows up with Brit Douchenozzle. Eileen very quickly puts him in his place.
Meanwhile, Dean quietly grabs Kelly and drives her to the docks, where the others are waiting.
Douchenozzle starts to brag. Dean puts him in his place.
Kelly gets out and Sam and Dean try to talk Kelly out of being a moron. Kelly thinks she loves the Nephilim. Mick points out (sensibly, for once) that the Nephilim doesn't give a rat's ass about its mother.
Dagon shows up in a blast of thunder and lightning, and uses TK. She is also, of course, unaffected by regular bullets. After blasting away the others, she starts to grab Kelly. Eileen gets the gun and shoots at Dagon, but Dagon disappears and Douchenozzle gets shot instead. Works for me.

Mick doesn't take Douchenozzle's death well. He wants to shoot Eileen, yelling about the code that, y'know, Americans don't follow. Dean steps up and takes aim at him. Sam tries to talk Mick down.
I sure hope Mick understands that if he shoots Eileen, Dean's gonna blow his head off. Right then and there.
As if this episode couldn't possibly suck enough, Mary has slept with Retch. Who confesses he was thinking he would end up shooting her, instead.
Mary straight-up tells him it was a one-night stand. Retch says he's not "built for that" and that she isn't, either. Mary says no, but that her monogamous days are over.
Retch thinks she's choosing Hunting over Family. Mary begs to differ.
Back Chez Crowley, Lucifer is getting a demon to examine him, presumably so he can lift Crowley's spells. The demon admits he can't do that. The only demon who could disarm the "security system" is the one who designed it. Crowley killed him.
Is this demon really dumb enough to believe Lucifer? Oh, wait. How did the rest of the episode go?
Back at the Bunker, Eileen is upset over having killed a human. The Brothers comfort her.
Post by thesnowleopard on Apr 6, 2017 19:59:41 GMT -5
So, Kelly finally buys a clue (actually, it's a gift from Dagon) that she's not going to survive giving birth to the Nephilim and that nobody cares.
Henchbitchstress shows up with Retch to school Mitch, probably fatally. Toni the Twat's name is once again spoken in vain. Henchbitchstress monologues delusionally about how "Hunters are dogs" and should "obey." She wants Eileen tracked down and murdered. She also wants the Winchesters "investigated" and executed "if found guilty."
Which just goes to show how PLOT STUPID the LoL really are. You send people over the pond without having investigated these guys thoroughly already?! WTF?!, show?
Mitch rebels and gets shot dead by Retch.
Dear Chuck, I am *so* over this LoL storyline at this point.
Back at the Bunker, the Brothers are worrying about Castiel. Eileen has bailed, deciding to go back to Ireland. Which, you know, isn't right next door to England, or anything.
Oh, she left the Colt. Dean's cheery joy at getting it back is about the only good thing about this episode.
Back at the LoL Bunker, dumbass Henchbitchstress orders Retch to kill every Hunter in the U.S.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! Really, show? Come on.

He knew Sam had it, so I guess Sam must have mentioned giving it back to them. So, it's a race between who was dumber--Sam for giving the LoL a weapon that didn't belong to them and Dean for being okay with it.
Dean's not even curious about where the Colt comes from? Because as far as we know, he still doesn't know how the Lol got it back, rght?
Dean's probably as sick of this storyline as the rest of the fandom is and just wants to get it over with. This is the first time I am actually looking forward to the hiatus.
Any chance they will reset the whole of S12 as a bad dream? I am actually thinking longingly of Metatron! Or even Charlie! Anyone but these idiots and their even more idiotic story that noone that I know of cares about but Dabb & Singer.
If Peter Roth wants more seasons, he better fire both of them.

Thing is, we know for a fact it's coming back and very likely for more than one season. So, there's always next season. But I really, really think it needs to be with a different showrunner (Come back, Jeremy! All is forgiven!) and preferably without Perez or the Nep Duo.
We know this show can be better. That's what's so painful.
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!
Feb 19, 2018 0:55:03 GMT -5
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
Feb 18, 2018 23:55:22 GMT -5
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.
Sept 25, 2017 18:55:18 GMT -5
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.
Sept 13, 2017 5:27:25 GMT -5
SkeksisGirl: Checking in from FL, I survived Irma with power and no damage to my apartment.
Sept 11, 2017 16:11:29 GMT -5
SkeksisGirl: As for Creation, this is why I work them.
May 27, 2017 17:00:08 GMT -5
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.
