Recap of recent events and a mention of Walt and Roy.
Cut to Now, with Mary killing her way through a list of people to get to Jody.
In the Bunker, Dean suggests murdering the Twat to save air. I'm all for it, but she claims she's the only one who can undo Mary's deus ex machina conditioning. They then try searching through the lore (on Sam's suggestion) and Sam finds a spell that requires virgin's blood (they have to purify their blood, since no one is a virgin), but it doesn't work because Ketch put a dampening spell on the Bunker.
On the second day, Dean suggests breaking out, but the walls are too strong. Sam is for giving up and mopes about having been stupid about the LoL. Little late, there, Sam. Sam says he "followed because it was easier than leading."
Dean's not for giving up. Annnnd, Genius Dean gets an idea.
He's gonna use the grenade launcher. The Twat thinks it's stupid. Well, sure, but desperate times....

It's still dark. Sam looks for Dean, but can't breathe. And then, the lights turn on. And the air comes back. Dean enters the Bunker, wounded but alive.
So, Mary shows up at Jody's. The Brothers go through the dead and then rush to Jody's house. Jody and Alex have her tied up in a chair.
Dean gets all the booze he needs, while Mary digs in the knife. They bring in the Twat, who admits she lied. Mary's gone. Dean is going to take her out into the cornfield (okay, Jody's backyard) and the Twat thinks that
Walt and Roy come in and it's totally anticlimactic. Damn, the writing has sucked this season.
Sam gives a Big Speech about fighting back. He's going to be a leader now because apparently, these writers can't even allow Dean that.

Sam wants Dean to come along, saying Dean is better than any ten Hunters. Dean pleads being wounded and that Sam is "ready." But Sam senses Dean has an ulterior motive. Dean admits he's going to try to save Mary. They hug.
Jody has a moving moment with Alex, whom she's sending out of the fight. Jody is going with Sam.
At the LoL Quonset Hut, Henchbitchstress is marshaling the forces of about a handful of LoL to attack ... all of America. I facepalm. Really hard.
Ketch asks a redshirt tech to locate and track Mary. He's a little horrified to discover she's back at the Bunker. For many reasons.
Dean doesn't trust the Twat, but she claims all she wants is a "head-start" to go see her son again. I'm sure hoping this is meant to make her a good guy, so we'll "feel bad" when Ketch or somebody kills her. Because I sure don't want her to make it out of this episode alive.
Anyhoo, Dean goes into the dreamworld with his mother. Mary is tending to Baby!Sam (of course she is) and feeding Toddler!Dean. It's a totally different house layout from the Pilot teaser, where Sam had his own room. Really, show? You were too lazy even to recreate that?
Dean tries to talk to Dream!Mary, but she ignores him.

Sam and the other Hunters storm the LoL - in broad daylight, 'cause that's smart. They start cold-bloodedly taking out the LoL. You know, the human LoL.
I like the new blonde Hunter. I don't expect her to make it, but I'll hope, anyway.
Inside, Henchbitchstress in her matching two-piece and pearls, belatedly and over-confidently orders a counterattack. But the Hunters are already inside.
Dean realizes his mother is intentionally choosing to stay in her dreamworld. As she tells Dream!Dean she says she won't let anything happen to him, Dean says the words fans have been waiting for all season: "I hate you."
Dean pours out his anger and resentment about the deal she made. He talks about his abandonment and how he got parentified. How Mary's promise never came true.
Do you think Jensen is selling this? Of course he is.
Annoyingly, Dean still kinda makes the pain All About Sam, but at least he talks about his own pain first. He repeats that he hates Mary. He says he also loves her. Obviously, he's very confused. He says he can't help but love her because she's his mother. He admits he made deals, too (I think that hurts her the most), and that he forgives her. While crying. He insists they can start over, but she has to fight back (clearly, someone watched the season finale of The Exorcist). He says he needs her to "see me."
Finally, she turns around and looks at him. She recognizes him.
Back in the Bunker, the Twat is trying to escape. Of course. But it's too late. Dean is yanked of the dreamworld - by Ketch.
The Twat's already dead. Dammit, I wanted to see that!
Chez LoL, Walt and Roy are getting killed and Sam is confronting Henchbitchstress. Who fleas into a locked
In the Bunker, Ketch is beating up Dean because Dean's still got that bum leg.
But Dean's got some moves left. After all, he survived Purgatory. He does some serious damage to Ketch.
Dean: "When you left us alone in the Bunker? Man, I knew you were psycho, but I didn't think you were stupid."
Ketch decides to cheat a little further and pulls a gun. But he gets shot first. By Mary. Dean goes to her, kicking Ketch's gun out of the way.
Ketch [to Mary]: "I knew you were a killer. You both are." Dean: "You're right." Mary shoots Ketch.
Henchbitchstress tries to get someone from LoL Central to get her out, but they ignore her. The Hunters blast their way in and Henchbitchstress tries to talk her way out by telling Sam (she mistakes him for Dean, I kid you not) Lucifer got out and Crowley's dead. LoL Central try to back her up. Sam shoots out the LoL commlink. Jody shoots Henchbitchstress. Yay, Jody.

Sam & Co. blow up the LoL Quonset Hut. Well, there's a kind of satisfaction to blowing the shit out of a storyline that shouldn't have happened in the first place. I'll give them that.
Dean finds some mega-pain pills (so he'll be stoned for the rest of the finale). Mary feels really guilty and apologizes to Dean for being a cold, distant bitch. She says she couldn't face what she'd done to her sons.
Dean tells her her deal didn't make them "who we are." They made themselves heroes who "save the world."
Mary fears Sam will hate her, but Sam returns at that moment. Group hug. Credits.

12.21 doesn't start too well.
So, we get a recap to "Carry On, Wayward Son" of the season so far. It wasn't very good.
Cut to Castiel and Kelly at a pretty mountain lake. Kelly is trying to build a Swedish crib and mourning that she will never see her child's face.
Is anybody else mightily offended by this whole woman-as-walking-womb storyline?
Oh, and in case the misogyny wasn't high enough, when TFW try to contact Rowena, they get Lucifer, who just incinerated her. Because apparently, she wasn't worth an onscreen death.
To add insult to injury, Crowley's "rat" resurrects his usual body in a parody of Dean's resurrection in "Lazarus Rising."
TFW bemoans about how the writing won't let them kill Lucifer or send him back to Hell.
Some ball of light is stalking Castiel and Kelly. In case anybody cares. Castiel finds it as a line of light on the beach. When he touches it, he's transported to a dark place, where a monster attacks him. Somebody shoots the monsters. Castiel recognizes the person and says, "You?"
Trying not to get excited but PLEASE LET IT BE MICHAEL.

Mary gets stuck helping Kelly, while the Brothers find out the alt-world is one where Mary never made a deal to save John (and continued hunting) and the Brothers were never born. So, they never saved the world.
Bobby kills angels for fun, but sensed Castiel was different. Oh, and Rufus is alive.
C'mon, Dean, angel-killing bullets are not new on your world.
Kelly asks Mary if she'd die for her boys the way she will die for "Jack." Barf. So much barf.
Crowley shows up.
Damn, we could have gotten a final Rowena scene in half the time this freakin' baby is taking to get born. So dull.
Castiel comes in to talk to Kelly. He seems to be having second thoughts.
Downstairs, the Brothers are gearing up. What happened to all those Hunters that survived from last episode?
Dean talks about TFW and rather reluctantly includes Crowley.
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.

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.
