Now Mary really does know that Bobby’s got some issues. As you succinctly state, Show is trying to make us care about all of these extra hangers-on merely by their proximity to Dean and Sam, and I’m sorry, that’s not how you get your audience invested in new people littering the screen. I’m also in the same boat as you when it comes to AU Bobby. Viewers keep looking at the “glory days” and wonder what happened. He stabs it with his machete, and it dissolves into a cloud of dust that gets all over him. Glynn respects and remembers canon, which I greatly appreciate. ~ Blessings! Contemporary lore depicts them as genie… (The same advice Sam has clearly given himself when it comes to his brother). Dean (Mr. Dean compliments Sam on his innovation of having the hunters wear body cams, and he’s the one again encouraging Sam as they head out to look for Maggie, saying that they’ll find her and bring her home. That’s a familiar combination for this Show, and it feels right – my own emotions about all three of those things let me know that I’m still as passionate about Supernatural as ever. So in that case it keeps people away but still… So was Maggie under the Djinn spell? What a mess! Sam and Dean work with Bobby and Mary to fight a djinn in 'Nightmare Logic.' It’s those little things that let me know that the actors also realize that Sam and Dean can’t be as okay with this as they’re trying to seem. No wonder Mary doesn’t seem like their mom most of the time – not only is she too young, her experience has just been so different from theirs. We follow Sam down the hall and up into the attic. My guess is that it’s the things Michael’s done but being a Sam & Dean fangirl I want it to be Dean’s intense fear of losing Sam or something else Sam related. And I want to say Sam’s character has softened even Dean over the years, so there’s that. It’s not, however, adorable that Sam isn’t getting enough sleep. 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. In fact, this episode also wonderfully complements the last episode, in which Sam gets to show his protective side and his knowledge of his brother by taking care of Dean – and getting him out on the road on a hunt he can win. Sasha’s dad left them alone, and she was the one to find that her mother killed herself when Sasha was only twelve. They haven’t fought together, he didn’t watch them grow up. The episode started out slow, and at the first break I was feeling a bit meh about it. Jim Beaver gets a pretty epic fight scene that ends with Bobby pinned to a tree with a blade. We don’t get to find out, because Dean channels all that rage we know he’s holding inside and bashes the djinn’s head in. With Dean stepping back from the leadership role, take another look. Neil set himself up in the home of Patrick Rawling, using his powers to put the man into a coma that was the apparent result of a stroke. As Mary and Bobby climb the stairs, Sam follows them with his eyes, trying to smile, then nervously glances at Dean as though to reassure himself that his brother is still here with him. I had a bit of a Sixth Sense moment at this point, trying to make sense of how the Djinn was acting with the Winchesters when he must have believed the whole time that he was dealing with Michael. I can’t stand new Bobby and I just wish they would hurry up and write Mary off the show. There’s a part of me that would be perfectly okay with things going back to the way they were early on, before the bunker was taken over by people I can’t connect with. They are, praise the lord, still talking to each other openly. I’m wondering though if it’s possible that when Nick/Lucifer disappeared after killing his neighbor that Michael found him and possessed him and let Dean go for now. "Look, I wanna help you, all right. And we’re left with hmmmm that groundskeeper seems shady. Even though I want them to be! I completely agree. I am far less fine with her since all of a sudden she’s been involved in two hunts – one of them solo – when she doesn’t look like someone who could figure out how to call AAA if she had a dead battery and needed a jump without bursting into anxious tears at having to deal with a stranger. I don’t have to say anything because you said it all, perfectly. Pat. 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). Here’s hoping that what they’ve effectively teed up won’t trail off without a satisfying resolution! Despite the fact that Bobby was just critical of him, Sam Winchester hangs onto his empathy – because seriously, Sam Winchester is the most empathic character to ever empathize with anyone. 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. It could be an interesting thing to explore – how does it feel to have someone who was SO important to you, who was like a father to you, whose death was incredibly painful, back suddenly? It feels like Dean is very aware he needs time to heal, more than that, he seems to be tentatively exploring the possibility of a different kind of life for himself, one where he can trust Sam to run the Family Business, whilst he lets go of not just the horror of his life, but of the huge weight of expectation that John placed on him to be something he couldn’t. I absolutely love the reciprocity of the brothers’ relationship and how that’s shown in these two back-to-back episodes. Do TPTB pay attention to what you say at all? It plays out organically and realistically, and it gives us a beautiful glimpse into Dean’s headspace by paralleling him with Sasha. One day, Dean finds scratches of Djinn in several places and he chases the supernatural being. Following the arrival of Michael in the Main Universe, he set out to create an army of monsters enhanced by angel grace. With that being said, I, too, am a little tired of all the new characters now interspersed in the story. Sasha makes herself a stiff drink, then whirls on Dean, who is making lots of noise with his knife sharpening (while perched provocatively on a chair arm….). She has literally lived another life. Spot on review, Lynn! When Mary hugs Sam, Dean nervously scrubs his hand over his face as he watches. If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. Dean seems to be choosing life. Yes yes, those small moments and these actors’ ability to infuse them with so much emotional meaning are what makes this show the extraordinary thing it is. Instead, it left me scratching my head and wondering where the hell we’re going from here and what the hell the Djinn saw in Dean’s mind. I wanted these scenes when Mary first returned. I also don’t care about Maggie or the AU folks. I want my bad ass Cass back. Thank god for benzos. lol I think most people would agree with you – on both counts! Djinns are depicted in the Quran as beings with powers. He’s clearly talking about both the trauma of his childhood and the recent trauma of being taken for a ride by Michael and all the awful things the archangel has done since. So of course Sam Winchester, the brave brave Sam Winchester, heads for the attic. It’s those little things that let me know that the actors also realize that Sam and Dean can’t be as okay with this as they’re trying to seem. Damian is specifically aiming to take the team to Hell, which "is a backdoor to Purgatory," where Djinn is trapped. Dean seems to be allowing himself to breath a little free air, free not just from Michael, but from the ghosts of his past. But this Bobby hasn’t earned my love, or even my caring about him. I love feeling like oooh I can’t wait for next week’s episode, maybe we’ll find out a little more! This is a great scene, playing out slowly like I mentioned. And the talk between Mary and Bobby was so reflective of what the Winchester brothers have lived through or off-screen talked about. I absolutely hate that Sam and Dean, but especially Dean, are being made to feel like their home is some kind of refugee camp, with no end in sight to when these invaders plan to *leave.*. The problem is, that doesn’t make me feel for her emotionally. Here I am with the last rant of the week - Supernatural. However, Neil recoils in horror at what he sees in Dean's mind, allowing Dean to retaliate by bashing Neil's head with a bookend. I do not like them in the bunker. There was a lot of that in this episode, and I appreciate every moment. She’s Dean in her avoidance and use of substances, and she’s Dean when she rebuffs his attempts to talk with a “Not really up for a heart to heart.”. The Winchesters and Bobby argue about what the monster could be. He doesn’t love Sam and Dean – and I don’t love him. She’s been yanked out of Heaven ala Buffy and of course she’s in an untenable situation. 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. I had a bit of a Sixth Sense moment at this point, trying to make sense of how the Djinn was acting with the Winchesters when he must have believed the whole time that he was dealing with Michael. But this Bobby hasn’t earned my love, or even my caring about him. Latest movie tv news, celebrity gossip, sports tech news for geeks from the Movie TV Tech Geeks crew. Mary, you need to see what a great family you have! In my living room. Only it wasn’t really Dean, it was Michael. Her character is one of the worst ever and has no impact. He almost takes a back seat to Sam, allowing him to exercise his leadership muscles, but he’s right there, paying close attention. Another possibility on the table! And when we do, we’ll kill him. I tend to really appreciate the way Glynn characterizes Dean, and this episode is no exception. Two down and a bunch to go! Dean again is protective and pissed and jumps to Sam’s defense, but Bobby’s not having it. Breaks my heart that I don’t like Bobby, but…he is not Bobby. That’s a feeling I often had in the early seasons of Supernatural, so once again, that makes me a happy fangirl. Their final moments are upon them. Everyone watching: WHAT THE HELL DID HE SEE???? Cheers Marion. Another great review. It took me a little while to realize that the pace was slower than I’ve grown used to – but once again, that turned out to be a good thing. Great review Lynn, as always, looking forward to next weeks I still want to punch Bobby in the face for what he said to you and you’re already trying to help him. Everyone is clueless about horror movie tropes in this episode. It’s almost like Show is saying, love him because I said so, because he looks the same and acts sort of the same. She’s hunting alone for some reason, and not very competently. Not to mention all the sleep he is sacrificing to make this all work. Once again you captured everything I liked and disliked about this episode (and even this season so far). Lynn, Thanks, as always, for your re-cap. Personally I have a fondness for the standalone episodes and this was a good one, like the last one was too. I love having Jim Beaver and Felicia Day on my show, but they are not the characters I loved. He hides things until they extrude from his skin like stellated polyhedra . At this point, Sam and Dean are stoic about their mother leaving, because that’s pretty much what she does. I can’t connect with the AU hunters, even AU Bobby and Dean, but maybe that’s the point. Thanks. (Not that I don’t have things to critique, of course…). And notice Dean’s reaction, when Sam sends him that glance? I think he simply wanted her to care about them. I don’t know if the writer’s intend it this way, or if Jared and Jensen just brilliantly play it so, but they always look like two little lost boys when she leaves. I am glad you are more honest about your feelings of each episode. Then we’re in the overcrowded bunker, Chief Sam briefing a bunch of AU hunters. Nobody thanks Sam and Dean, and in fact they stand on the sidelines in their own home, looking left out, which hurts my heart. More commonly known as a genie, djinn (or jinn) are supernatural creatures in Arab folklore and Islamic teachings which occupy a parallel world to that of mankind. (Brilliant dialogue here, the progression of those three pronouns perfectly encapsulating Dean’s struggle to not take responsibility for what Michael did!). WIAWSNB - Sam AU. Another possibility on the table! Why would I? I was excited about the potential for the AU being a way to bring back beloved characters who I think it was a mistake to kill off, but I’m not sure it really works. Supernatural 14x05 'Nightmare Logic' Ending Explained Episode Review ... Top 10 Funniest Dean Winchester Moments on Supernatural - Duration: 11:17. I think – like Sam and Dean – I’ve just watched Mary leave too many times. So we have demon hunting university 2.0 (3.0?) I have to inwardly wonder if part of the ‘nightmare logic’ has to do with the same feeling many parents have in giving their children cell phones or other technology to “keep them safe out there in the real world.”. Dean: But no blood. They haven’t fought together; he didn’t watch them grow up. You only sleep 3 hours a night. He has life. She does the classic trip-and-fall-over-nothing trope and gives up, hands over her head waiting to die – but the hallway is now empty. The Djinn thinks Dean is Michael (a reasonable assumption!) I never felt that Michael just “left” Dean’s body cause he was enjoying it way too much. The brothers switch back and forth throughout the series, one of them stepping up and the other standing back and supporting, then vice versa. They KNOW each other; they care about each other. Worried protective Dean is my favorite flavor, have I mentioned? Great review and wonderfully stated. I have been one of few that kind of get why Mary is the way she is and even if it is painful at times, you got it. Here they are, in this place that is an AU “to them,” and they have at their disposal all of the Men of Letters library and history–along with everything that add to Sam and Dean’s reputation. He offers a sincere “I’m sorry.” And some advice. I always thougth the Winchesters (and support cast) were reflecting about the monsters within us and the faith, determination, and love that helps us fight them along our life journey. Glynn respects and remembers canon, which I greatly appreciate. Then someone realizes Bobby has once again disappeared and Mary goes off to find him. Dean’s learned to let it go, but that doesn’t mean all that pain, horror, and trauma doesn’t exist inside his head. Plus, they are eager to learn from one of the best (Sam), beyond whatever they used to know back in their old existence. It left me as fascinated as I’ve been for fourteen years by the way Sam and Dean care about each other, and frustrated with all the people in the bunker who I don’t care about. They come to the house to see the owner and find Mary and Bobby already there. I’m late to the party as I just found the emotional fortitude to watch the last two episodes. I enjoy their episodes so much! Before he dies, the djinn taunts him, as monsters often do. Protective big brother Dean gets on his back about it, clearly worried. The more it seems like my show, the more I care , Great review Lynn, as always. Dean has the nightmare that Michael didn’t hold up to his end of the deal after killing Lucifer.

He kills the djinn, and then empties seven bullets into him too, in a moment chillingly reminiscent of demon or Mark of Cain Dean. Almost. They feed on human blood and can poison their victims with a touch. Female superheroes have come into their own lately and here is a tribute to the best ones out there. You can learn more here: https://movietvtechgeeks.com/movie-tv-tech-geeks-privacy-policy/ethical-conduct/ Dean mutters and Sam picks up his phone and starts dialing a number. That means Bobby too. I cringed at the use of the word “home” because the bunker is NOT their home, all the AU hunters. He says he’s been trying to get past what “I…we…HE did” and that he was starting to feel like himself again. Leah Cairns did a fabulous job making Sasha a memorable character who seemed very real even in the short amount of time we had to spend with her. Some memory that’s so horrific even a djinn can’t stand seeing it?). Sasha: There’s a strange man sharpening a… machete? Ewww). He hasn’t done any of the things that made me love Bobby Singer. This time is less onerous, with Mary assuring them that she’s just a half day away and she’s there for them if they need her, and Dean assuring her “Mom, go. Although Bobby seemed to have a thing for the late AU Mary and is possibly a bit confused still. It was an interesting little exchange, underscoring the huge disconnect between this Mary Winchester, who only knew John when he was a young man, and the John that Sam and Dean knew. The second season of Supernatural, an American dark fantasy television series created by Eric Kripke, premiered on September 28, 2006, and concluded on May 17, 2007, airing 22 episodes.The season focuses on protagonists Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) as they track down Azazel, the demon responsible for the deaths of their mother Mary and father John. It makes sense that, even if it’s in an awkward way or with very few words, that they would try to take care of each other (and not just by stitching up wounds). The beginning scene is Maggie, whose name half of my timeline can’t remember, which says something that isn’t good. The Djinn was a. The homeowner himself turns out to be comatose, taken care of by bubbly nurse Neil (Chris Patrick-Simpson). And then in the ending, when AU Bobby calls Sam over to apologize – The look on Sam’s face when AU Bobby calls, and as he walks over. It took me a little while to realize that the pace was slower than I’ve grown used to – but once again, that turned out to be a good thing. But particularly that little moment, when Bobby calls, and Sam just looks so dejected and scared – he even glances at Dean before he goes. Dean: And they’re checking in?
