A Little Slice of Kevin: Once you get going…

“Once you get going, it’s really hard to stop.” Crowley:  The King of Hell;  The artisan of obsession. Obsession:  the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc. Linda Tran is obsessed with freeing her son, so she hires a witch.  She has no idea that witches are controlled by demons. Kevin Tran is obsessed with saving his mother, and then the world.  He had no idea that his immediate concerns create a map to his decimation as a productive force.] Sam Winchester is obsessed with banishing the demons and sealing the gates to hell so that he can resume ‘normal’. Dean Winchester is obsessed.  It’s all he’s ever known. Sam and Dean know, but refuse to turn away because of their obsession with the hope for mankind.  Dean is not shaken, even after he is shown that he did not know the truth.  Sam takes it in stride, waiting for the next revelation. Castiel is obsessed with following the Will of God, regardless of his understanding or ability to determine its definition or origin. Once you get going, it’s hard to stop. Hard to stop trusting a witch.  Hard to stop trusting your mother.  Hard to stop trusting an Angel.  Hard to stop listening to Heaven. Hard to stop.  Because you can’t. To stop trusting is to give up all hope, and hope is all that is left. Hope, and dare we say Faith?  How exactly DID Cas get out of Purgatory? He clearly told us that he stayed because he needed to do his penance. Yet somehow, he is here, out of purgatory, in the world, and rescued by some unknown force, presenting itself in the form of an entity named Naomi, to “Help the Winchesters.  Come when they call.” “And yes, I’m with you, if that’s alright.”  Castiel says to the Winchesters, after clearly stating that he will not obey Naomi. “Oh,...

Supernatural Recap & Review: A Little Slice of Kevin

Dean is haunted by Castiel, and Linda Tran is possessed by controlling her surroundings. Dean sees Castiel, walking by the roadside, while Linda hires a witch to gather the ingredients for her Demon Obliviator by hiring a witch.  Too bad Linda doesn’t know that witches are beholden to demons.  Too bad Dean doesn’t know that Castiel was the one who decided not to leave Purgatory.  Castiel doesn’t know how he escaped Purgatory, and Crowley doesn’t know what’s on the tablet. But they find out.  Linda and Kevin are betrayed by the witch and handed to Crowley.  Crowley has assemble the entire body ofpotential prophets, waiting to take Kevin’s place, should he die.  Crowley has leverage, as the King of Hell always will, and Linda is powerless.  It is up to Kevin, who is in advanced placement after all, to hold out against the powers of Hell in protecting the Word of God.  The Word of God that can seal the gates of hell, and also contains a cryptic message from the Angel Metatron Dean finds out.  He finds out that he had no power over Castiel’s refusal to leave Purgatory.  And everything isn’t his responsibility.  Castiel needed to serve his penance, and would not allow Dean to pull him out. Castiel begins to find out.  He was pulled from Purgatory to serve Naomi, whom he clearly defies in favor of the Winchesters. Crowley finds out that there is a game changer.  There is a way to seal the gates of hell.  And the archangel Metatron has taken his leave of his Master in this world.  And there is a compendium of tablets.    ...

‘Southern Comfort’ Review: Vengeance is Mine

What could possibly break the tension between the Winchester brothers?  Possession by an avenging spirit should do the trick. Southern Comfort breaks in with Dean and Sam arguing heatedly about the encounter with Benny.  Once again, Sam is frustrated that they’re working what seems like a sketchy case, and if this isn’t enough tension, they run into Garth, Texas Ranger. Garth has not only started working the case before them, he’s become a self-styled replica of Bobby.  He’s wearing Bobby’s hat. He’s using Bobby’s phrases.  He’s giving advice to hunters everywhere through a bank of cell phones he wears in his buckskin jacket.  Dean pointedly lets him know that he’s doing it wrong.  Garth finds the ectoplasm.  Garth finds Bobby’s note that identifies their target as a Spectre, a vengeful spirit. Sam ruminates some more about Amelia.  We don’t see anything of purgatory in this episode, but Sam is dreaming on about Amelia. It’s a little reminiscent of Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin in “Paint Your Wagon” (if you haven’t seen that, you really should).  I keep waiting for Sam to break out in song, “I still see Amelia, she keeps on returning…” This spirit travels on a cursed object – the penny he wore around his neck for luck, which was stolen from his grave by some local miscreants.  Corporal Collins is his name, and his anger is amazing.  A woman in love and married to a man for 37 years drops a car on him for going to the prom with someone else before they were married.  Her son does in a former business partner with a shovel in a local store.  A deputy kills the sheriff for asking him to write a report.  Another deputy chases down a softball umpire in the hospital for calling him out at second base. Wow, good thing he didn’t get a...

Supernatural 8.6 Recap & Review: Southern Comfort

Vengeance is mine – penny, penny, who’s got the penny? Sam and Dean still can’t find the Kevin trail, and wind up in a little Missouri town where a wife of 37 years drops a car on her husband and carves the name of a childhood fling on his chest with her fingernails. Suited up for first contact, the Winchesters find that the case is already being worked.  Enter Garth, Texas Ranger.  The three compadres work the case together, finding through Bobby’s notes that they are chasing a Spectre.  Not just any spectre, the ghost of the body that is buried in the Confederate Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  Local legend has it that the ‘unknown soldier’ is actually a man named Vance Collins, whose brother betrayed him by fighting for the Union Army.  Vance has sworn an oath of vengeance against his brother, and now anyone he is able to encounter takes their vengeance on their enemies. The Spectre is released from the tomb through a penny he had tied around his neck when he was buried.  Local kids were drinking in the tomb and stole the penny – then used it during a purchase at a local store.  Once the penny started its circulation, vengeance was wreaked upon the citizens of the small town. A husband is killed for a fling he had 37 years ago, before his marriage; a young entrepreneur is shot in the local mini mart for his part in a failed business partnership; the sheriff has his chest removed with a 12 gauge for asking the deputy to write one more report; another county cop chases down a softball umpire at the hospital, and runs into Dean. “Ohhh…the Spectre likes you,” he smiles, and hands Dean the penny. Dean, rife with anger for Sam’s betrayal during his year in purgatory, waits patiently for Sam and Garth to...
