Starting now with a recap of Recap of Dean talking about John being on a hunting trip in the Pilot, and some other older stuff, plus a recap of last week that makes it pretty clear nobody lately has bothered to watch any of the older episodes.
Cut to an African American woman named Tasha Banes who is at a B&B run by a racist old woman and her too-friendly son. In her room, Tasha makes a finding spell and goes down into a shed that's very smelly. And full of witch fetishes. Then she gets stabbed and falls.
Cue title cards.
Cue sneak peek with Dean brooding over Castiel obviously having been brainwashed--again--and asking Sam if he can fix the Colt. Which is completely out of character for both of them. Dean is the guy who fixes things. Hell, he was the one who was cleaning the Colt before Sam went off and used it. This is NOT IN CHARACTER for Sam.
They hear a phone vibrate. It's Mary's. Sam answers (because apparently, all Dean can do now is brood over Castiel). It's Alicia and her brother, asking for help find her mother in Wyoming.
Sam volunteers him and Dean to help, using Dean's old "Dad's on a hunting trip" line. I roll my eyes. Hard.
Dean calls Mary and leaves a message. Retch is torturing a shapeshifter that takes first Mary's and then Retch's form. Mary looks uneasy about it.
Oh, Alicia's bro bonds with Dean over the car, while Alicia and Sam bond over not being part of their family. Ugh. Move on, show.
At the B&B, some creepy dude is hanging about. When they enter the B&B, their mother (Doomed Teaser Gal) greets them, looking fine and not at as if she got stabbed. More shapeshifters?

Mary leaves a call for Dean apologizing for continuing to not be there. Dean (and Sam) is outside checking out the cellar, while the twins bond with Not-Mom. And the brother has a date with a cute (boy) bartender.
Sam uncovers Tasha. Dean notes her and the other bodies' hearts have been ripped out. They wonder who is upstairs when everyone in the house is down dead in the basement. Alicia's brother comes down and they don't stop him from seeing his mom's body in time. They let him grieve.
So, shapeshifters of some kind, but what are they up to?
Mary, meanwhile, is skulking around and finds Mick's body. Then she tries to leave quietly. Which goes not so well because her access has been denied in everything, by Retch.
I sure hope we lose him this week.
Oh, and she gets locked into a room where she sees info on every Hunter she knows. And realizes the Bunker is being bugged. She tries to call Dean and opens a door to find Retch.
They have another spat. He lies about Mick's death. She's not fooled.
Mick brags incessantly about how efficient the LoL are. I roll my eyes.
Mary beats him up some and gets beaten a bit, too. He brags about all the people he's killed the Brothers don't know about, how he can keep Mary "safe" and that the American Hunters are going to all be killed. I roll my eyes some more because the logistics are just too stupid.
Mary beats Retch a lot then tries to leave and gets TASERed. Never mind. She's not gonna die this week and Retch is monologuing too much to live.

Alicia's brother confronts the Mother Thing in the house, but when he forces her to reveal where the center of the magic is, the Racist Woman activates her minions. Dean and the brother go to confront her while the Sam and Alicia get beaten up by her things.
Turns out RW is a powerful witch who is old and dying. She wanted to transfer her magic (and blood guilt) to Tasha and avoid going to Hell, but Tasha refused. So, she killed Tasha and created a twig doll that does what she wants.
So, the brother is confronting the old with while Dean is stuck in a chair. The witch says that if he kills her, the Mother Thing dies. She offers the same deal to him. Oh, and Dean is mostly playing the voice of reason. That gets choked off.
While Sam and Alicia get beaten a lot.
Oh, and Alicia gets stabbed.
Ugh, so over Dean being useless. We do see him straining toward his pistol, though. He finally reaches it and shoots the witch, while the brother is reaching for the ring.
The witch dies and all the dolls turn to dust. Max is upset, but Dean warns him that making the deal would have meant making a deal with a demon.
Oh, and Alicia dies. So, that sucks. Dean finally gets a kill and it's a "bad" one.

The Brothers try to comfort Max, who is heartbroken and blames himself. He asks them to leave so he can burn the bodies himself. Yeah, he's probably going to make a deal.
In the car, Sam tries to say that Dean did the right thing. Dean doesn't believe it. As we see a montage of Max using the bad magic ring to save Alicia by making a wicker version of her and burning the body of his real sister, Dean makes it pretty clear he knows what Max did.
Dean finally sees Mary's message--both messages. And he's off to the rescue with Sam.
Cut to Mary being awakened in the torture chair by Retch. [sigh]
Oh, and Toni the Twat shows up. So, we're gonna be stuck with these two until at least next week.

Maybe I am so used to nothing that I get excited about anything but I enjoyed the episode. It at least gave us back some of our Dean. A lot more than I expected after that awful Sam can you fix the colt scene.
I thought it was an alright episode. Some good stuff mixed with some stupid crap within the overall mediocrity of it. I'd say a middle of the road ep. It was better than what has been airing this past month and a half or so. JMO
Team Free Will. One ex-blood junkie, one dropout with six bucks to his name, and Mr. Comatose over there. ~Dean
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

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: As for Creation, this is why I work them.

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.
