But this Bobby hasn’t earned my love, or even my caring about him. With his new mind set and willingness to be emotionally available to his brother, I believe he’ll overcome any obstacle placed before him, with even greater strength than before. Oh my. I know there are fans who don’t like that Dean is suddenly not the leader and that he was on the sidelines this episode, and let me say that I don’t want it to stay like this either, but I can enjoy a little while of role reversal as long as it gives me insight into Dean’s head space and gives him an important role to play. Sure enough, she’s attacked and taken down by something that looks like a ghoul. The sooner the better. Bobby is once again surly and accuses Sam of letting Maggie hunt alone when she wasn’t ready. To quote Dean “Make that into a T-shirt!”. Great MOTW and I agree that he may be seeing Michael. That’s been consistent for the past few episodes and I really hope it stays that way. When Mary hugs Sam, Dean nervously scrubs his hand over his face as he watches. Family Don’t End With Blood: Book Review at A Reader’s Ramblings, Family Don’t End with Blood: Book Review at Fanbase Press, What The Hell Did He See In Dean’s Head? I think – like Sam and Dean – I’ve just watched Mary leave too many times. Ok I don’t see where the upgrade Michael gave the Djinn helps them. Mary, you need to see what a great family you have! Dean “raised’ Sam so even through they are brothers, Dean is has also been the parental figure. Hmm, that sounds like someone else we know, doesn’t it? So yes, the slower pace is weaving a story of adult Winchester brothers and where they are and how they are rethinking their future. This episode could have worked better if it were Jack in peril instead. As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. I want to, I do – but I don’t. Pat. That knowledge is locked somewhere in Dean’s mind. I totally agree with you, one of the things I have always loved about this show is that what’s on the surface is never all there is. "I wish." Bottom Line question: Was Dean partly referring to Mary when he said “Let it go.”? Everyone is clueless about horror movie tropes in this episode.

She doesn’t write down to the viewer, letting us be confused about what’s going on just like Sam and Dean are and rarely hitting us over the head with those painful anvils. And when we do, we’ll kill him. Dean (Mr. Castiel Supernatural Wiki Fandom. With that being said, I, too, am a little tired of all the new characters now interspersed in the story. The Djinn thinks Dean is Michael (a reasonable assumption!) It pains me to say that I also don’t feel the way I think Show wants me to feel about AU!Bobby. A shady seeming groundskeeper appears with a dangerous looking pitchfork and the boys have to come up with an explanation on the spot. This is the third season with Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer as showrunners.. Directed by Philip Sgriccia. This was one of my favorite scenes of the episode – again, it’s not rushed. Dean, meanwhile, has a chat with Sasha. Sam cares about them, you should too!” is doing the character a grave disservice. It’s almost like Show is saying, love him because I said so, because he looks the same and acts sort of the same. Excellent commentary, as always. Dean seems to be allowing himself to breath a little free air, free not just from Michael, but from the ghosts of his past. She’s hunting alone for some reason, and not very competently. The homeowner himself turns out to be comatose, taken care of by bubbly nurse Neil (Chris Patrick-Simpson). Once again you captured everything I liked and disliked about this episode (and even this season so far). Damian is specifically aiming to take the team to Hell, which "is a backdoor to Purgatory," where Djinn is trapped. There was a lot of that in this episode, and I appreciate every moment. Dean (Mr. I’m curious to see how Dean’s evolution continues to play out this season. Here’s hoping that what they’ve effectively teed up won’t trail off without a satisfying resolution! Jim Beaver gets a pretty epic fight scene that ends with Bobby pinned to a tree with a blade. Sorry, Maggie. He senses when Sam needs to hear that he’s doing a good job, especially when someone who is NOT a father figure to them but feels like it keeps telling him that he isn’t. I don’t like Sam being a camp counselor with a bunch of nameless flannel wearing red shirts who at the end of last season they were actively trying to resettle *outside the bunker. With Dean stepping back from the leadership role, take another look. The djinn attacks Dean, assuring him (and us) that he won’t hurt Michael’s favorite monkey suit, and reads his mind. Smooth): Sasha, why don’t you go make me a sandwich? Dean: (smiling the most proud big brother smile ever) Well, she learned from the best. Sam has so far spent most of his screen time this season acting as a sounding board to develop *other* characters, and it’s incredibly frustrating, even for me as someone who prefers Dean. Worried protective Dean is my favorite flavor, have I mentioned? They morph into the most adorable aw shucks representatives of the Historical Preservation Society you’ve ever seen. Sam’s fear of not being able to save people (his brother) and why he had to rescue Maggie/Maddie/Margret (HA!). It’s all too different, and I feel like Show is asking me to forget just how different it is and love this Bobby like I loved the other one. Other hunters can either take them in or help set them up with places to live. Dean stays in this mode when Sam gets upset that Maggie (Katherine Evans) didn’t check in, trying to reassure Sam that she might still be alive. I find myself agreeing with everything you said, especially my disappointment with Mary all the way back to when she appeared and my so not caring about the AU people including Bobby. They feed on human blood and can poison their victims with a touch. And Sam, Great job! Two in a row, yeah, I dig it. Nifty! And we’re left with hmmmm that groundskeeper seems shady. I certainly hope so. Dean tells Sam that Maggie wants to get out there and hunt again, and Sam is surprised. Maggie has never seemed like someone who should be a hunter, and we haven’t been given any reason to care about her. BuzzFeed includes FDEWB in their list of books that will change your life! I hope we get a payoff for what the Djinn saw in Dean’s head. He almost takes a back seat to Sam, allowing him to exercise his leadership muscles, but he’s right there, paying close attention. Another great review. Meanwhile, Sam and Dean realize that the vampire manifestation was probably trying to keep Sasha out of the attic. The creepily smiling Djinn warns him that there are dozens more out there, waiting for Dean’s family. Seeing Jenny return in the finale of Supernatural (let the tears begin) was a shock to fans. After 13+ seasons of battling supernatural entities, it sure must be a ‘nightmare’ to explore. Mary seems unable to relate to her boys. Bobby tells Sam that he realizes this job is no picnic and that he doesn’t know if he himself ever had it in him – but that Sam does. Still don’t know what the purpose of all that was about and why I had to suffer through bad accents to boot). It’s also weird, though I assume we’re supposed to assume that Mary has had some conversation with Dean over the weeks that have passed, but we’ve never seen it. I wholeheartedly agree that Glynn and Perez do a beautiful job of keeping the brothers at their truest selves so that relationship remains. Mary has more to say about Bobby, but like all the other AU hunters, I find myself not caring very much about this version of Bobby either. Sasha: There’s a strange man sharpening a… machete? And we see through his eyes when he finds Maggie. Because as a fan I thoroughly detest this whole AU arc which was written just to being back favorite characters. Dean Winchester is an alpha male and can’t take a back seat for too long. I also saw a lot of adult fears in this episode — trying to let go the things you believe you can blame your parents for because of your troubled adult-life. I couldn’t wait for her reunion with her baby Sammy and Sam finally knowing his mom, but we never really got it. Mary was hyper-focused on Dean in those early S12 episodes. The first red herring, but not the last – and I love that! Dean again is protective and pissed and jumps to Sam’s defense, but Bobby’s not having it. Bobby is even more surly than those ‘The Bobbys are surly’ were in that weird version of heaven. It left me wanting desperately to know what’s going on with Dean and what’s in his head (some part of Michael? We end the djinn saga with Dean unhooking Sasha’s dad and Sasha contemplating some forgiveness (which I can only hope is forthcoming from the dad as well, otherwise, ouch). Dean doesn’t hesitate to defend Sam again, saying that he’s doing his best – better than his best! Dean was obviously unhappy with the situation, but instead of being angry, he decided to accept and adapt, to make what Sam built in his absence, work. I just feel…numb. Supernatural Nightmare Logic Review (That patch-up scene was well done on the part of both of the actors, but alas, I just don’t care enough about their relationship for it to have much impact. Neither of them look convinced, and that’s heartbreaking. Dean knows how much Sam needs to hear that gratitude and celebrate a rare rescue. Bobby is even more surly than those ‘The Bobbys are surly’ were in that weird version of heaven. The Show needs to get all of the AU folks out of the bunker. It would be hard for the boys (I would hate that) but I wouldn’t miss him like the “real” Bobby.

I couldn’t possibly care less about Not-Bobby, because he’s *not Bobby,* or his blossoming relationship with Mary, since I don’t care about Mary either and am waiting at this point with baited breath for her to die so she can go back to Heaven and be with the two boys she actually loves. He’s all awkward when Dean walks in, which is telling – Sam is clearly not comfortable being the leader when Dean is around.
