I just want the Dabb and company to remember that Sam and Dean are the heart of the show. Mary coming back had the potential to be such an emotional and powerful story line, but it has never entirely gelled for me. She’s done the grand gesture (trying to kill herself in lieu of them with Billy, punching out Lucifer)… but it’s not the kind of daily emotional effort they actually are craving. This is a great scene, playing out slowly as I mentioned. I absolutely love the reciprocity of the brothers’ relationship and how that’s shown in these two back-to-back episodes. That’s a feeling I often had in the early seasons of Supernatural, so once again, that makes me a happy fangirl. Dean: (smiling the most proud big brother smile ever) Well, she learned from the best. If you feel an image was used without consent, please use our Contact Us section to let us know. Dean: How? Its left me heartbroken for him, do the AU hunters not have hearts? You only sleep 3 hours a night. He immediately attacks Sam, calling the headquarters he has set up a bunch of “idjits,” after which Dean looks like he’s barely holding back from tearing Bobby’s head off. Thanks again for another great review! The djinn attacks Dean, assuring him (and us) that he won’t hurt Michael’s favorite monkey suit, and reads his mind. The Show needs to get all of the AU folks out of the bunker. Thank god for benzos. And yet not back, because this looks like Bobby and talks like Bobby and is surly like Bobby, but this is NOT Bobby. So I am keeping my figures crossed that this season continues on this path because I can clearly see where the underlying arc is going for once in a very long time. But being a mother by caring and wanting to understand and listen to their life story that she missed. 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. I imagine that’s hard for the boys to wrap their minds around, too. He kills the djinn, and then empties seven bullets into him too, in a moment chillingly reminiscent of demon or Mark of Cain Dean. Sam, you are a better man that most of the rest of us. What the heck IS going on in Dean Winchester’s head? 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. Bobby is once again surly and accuses Sam of letting Maggie hunt alone when she wasn’t ready. It’s….weird. I mean, I wouldn’t want to keep attacking Dean Winchester’s little brother when that gets you a Dean Winchester who looks this angry, Bobby, just sayin. He had a beautiful wife, a job, and his mom was alive, but his fantasy was actually a nightmare. I’m not sure I’m all that comfortable with this new dynamic either, but Dean.

I enjoy their episodes so much! 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.

There are way too many of them and I don’t like them in the bunker and that all translates into me just not caring very much what happens to them. Djinns are depicted in the Quran as beings with powers. The problem is, that doesn’t make me feel for her emotionally. He’s not the only trap set for hunters – for Dean’s family. I-I really, really do, but you're having some kind of psychotic breakdown, so, I...just –" Sam said. 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. He chooses to hang back to take care of Sasha,the way he hung back to take care of Dirk and Stuart last week, and Mary in season 12’s “Who we are”. Thanks Lynn! Anyway, Sam and Dean and the Impala, so yay. Glynn respects and remembers canon, which I greatly appreciate. 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. Also that they don’t talk down to the viewers. He almost takes a back seat to Sam, allowing him to exercise his leadership muscles, but he’s right there, paying close attention. 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. Sasha: My dad wasn’t the best person…. He’s all awkward when Dean walks in, which is telling – Sam is clearly not comfortable being the leader when Dean is around. And I hate it! Still Dean found it in his incredibly large and forgiving heart, to wish her happiness. 2020 brought many changes to social media influencer marketing. 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. 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. He solves problems. Supernatural 14.05 Nightmare Logic, Supernatural ‘Optimism’ – Some Laughs, Some Feels and A Bit of Head Scratching, What The Hell Did He See In Dean’s Head? The brothers are always a good team when they’re together, always knowing what the other one needs to hear in order to keep going. It never gets old. Neil is a djinn and he’s killing hunters. The Djinn thinks Dean is Michael (a reasonable assumption!) That’s not the reaction Show was going for most likely, but I honestly cannot manufacture much feeling about the AU hunters. 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. TV Review of SUPERNATURAL Season 14 episode "Nightmare Logic" starring Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Samantha Smith ... Neil is a djinn. When Mary hugs Sam, Dean nervously scrubs his hand over his face as he watches. They’re ostensibly going up to Donna’s cabin (you know, the one with the garden gnomes…) so he can recuperate. seems more at ease than either me or Sam. A man drives down the street, into his garage and turns off the engine, a Michigan number license plate displayed on the bumper. He almost takes a back seat to Sam, allowing him to exercise his leadership muscles, but he’s right there, paying close attention. Latest movie tv news, celebrity gossip, sports tech news for geeks from the Movie TV Tech Geeks crew. Outside of Mint Condition I have tuned out nearly all of Sam’s scenes thus far when he’s not with Dean, and I *hate* feeling that way about one of the two characters that I love (slightly less than I love his older brother, but I still love him) simply because they insist on pairing him with all the extra characters that they just won’t kill off already. I want to, I do – but I don’t. He accuses Sam of not being “a real leader” which of course goes right to Sam’s vulnerability since he’s worried about that very thing. Dean confronts the Djinn, who it turns out thinks he’s Michael come around to test the Djinn to see if he’s following Michael’s instructions: kill as many hunters as you can. Sasha: My dad wasn’t the best person…. He’s a character we’re invested in (whether you like him or not. The girls and I were also sitting there watching the djinn scene and we all sat their saying “what did he see?”. It’s a tragic story, and Dean knows tragedy. The Djinn saw something bad in Dean’s head, something Dean didn’t know, judging from the surprise on his face, what ever it was, its seems pretty sure Dean knows more now and we will see it unravel, maybe Dean a little with it too, but Dean is resilient, he’ll figure it out. How does being able to read someone’s mind and then actually dish up their nightmare in real time help them feed? Before he dies, the djinn taunts him, as monsters often do. That’s the highest praise I can give. Oh my. This episode was smart and full of twists and turns and dead ends, which is just how I like my Show. Of course Bobby is in trouble – he’s met up with a manifestation of his son Daniel, who was lost in the angel wars and whose death this Bobby feels responsible for. The Show has been guilty in the past for teeing something up and just leaving it (Example – Cas and the Big Empty. Viewers keep looking at the “glory days” and wonder what happened. Ackles and Padalecki are such nuanced actors that we can see Sam and Dean’s ambivalence as they watch their mother leave again too. While he not the Bobby we know and love. Demon possession? They haven’t fought together, he didn’t watch them grow up. And that makes me sad. He’s all awkward when Dean walks in, which is telling – Sam is clearly not comfortable being the leader when Dean is around. Obviously a lot of baggage there. I don’t get why they keep centering around her, cause I just don’t care. Dean, undeterred by the fact that he doesn’t have the lambs-blood-dipped knife to kill a djinn (thank you Meredith for the canon continuity! Sorry, Maggie. (Personal note: I have always thought the show was more of a underlying story than the actual surface monsters. The sooner the better. Sam, you are a better man that most of the rest of us. He doesn’t love Sam and Dean – and I don’t love him. She could still be alive. There’s a bit of an apology from AU!Bobby to Sam, after Mary has patched him up and followed Sam’s advice to get Bobby to open up to her a bit. That’s adorable. Plus, they are eager to learn from one of the best (Sam), beyond whatever they used to know back in their old existence. While I know Dean is trying to support his brother, there will definitely come a time when he will need to pick up the reins again. Hmm, that sounds like someone else we know, doesn’t it? We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. Damian is specifically aiming to take the team to Hell, which "is a backdoor to Purgatory," where Djinn is trapped. And yet not back, because this looks like Bobby and talks like Bobby and is surly like Bobby, but this is NOT Bobby. We just get to see the guys do their thing in little episodic bits and pieces (the good parts, too, no doubt about it). Be happy.” There are hugs and pats on the back, and the family theme plays, but it rings sort of hollow for me here. (Brilliant dialogue here, the progression of those three pronouns perfectly encapsulating Dean’s struggle not to take responsibility for what Michael did!). The ignition key turns by itself and the engine starts. ~ Blessings! 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.”. And when we do, we’ll kill him. I’m pretty sure my husband thought I was crazy. So we have demon hunting university 2.0 (3.0?) Demon possession? 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. Thanks again. But Sam? Having to focus on these random folks as if they’re important for no other reason than they’re using Sam as a plot device to say, “See? Angry Dean makes me happy. Bobby is once again surly and accuses Sam of letting Maggie hunt alone when she wasn’t ready. Now Mary really does know that Bobby’s got some issues. He offers a sincere “I’m sorry.”  And some advice. It seems that back in the AU they seemed to know “some” elements of hunting, but it felt more ‘military’ over there (shoot first, ask questions later). I think we all want to imagine that our beloved Bobby and Charlie are back, but we keep getting slapped in the face with the truth of the situation, just like Sam and Dean. Dean confronts the Djinn, who it turns out thinks he’s Michael come around to test the Djinn to see if he’s following Michael’s instructions: kill as many hunters as you can. I did a rewatch (like you have to do after the big reveal in the Sixth Sense) and yes, Glynn and actor Chris Patrick-Simpson were actually able to make it work by having the Djinn determined to play along. Do you think Dean’s “Let it go.” was partly about Mary? Anyway, spot on review. Sam manages to machete the vampire into dust and free Maggie. They are, praise the lord, still talking to each other openly. They could talk about the people they have met along the way. The more it seems like my show, the more I care , Great review Lynn, as always. I have to say it was at this point last season I had a lot of hope for the season and was very dispointed. I do not like them in the bunker. 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. I feel that if the writers had as little as ten minutes of Dean, Sam and Mary together in the bunker talking about the years Mary missed. This week’s Supernatural episode didn’t leave me jumping up and down and squeeing to the rooftops – but that’s not actually a complaint. It’s too disconnected from Sam and Dean and their story at this point). Mary coming back had the potential to be such an emotional and powerful story line, but it has never entirely gelled for me. BTW, I NEVER thought Dean wanted Mary to just cater to them. One year ago, Dean moved to Lisa's house to live a normal, "apple-pie" life with Lisa and her son Ben, as recommended by Sam, working as a construction worker. It’s funny that the whole premise of this episode was that “everyone deals with their worst nightmare” and yet nothing happened to Mary, really, besides her having to spend time with her two sons. I *love* this show, but the AU hunters and dopplegangers of characters we loved and lost are exhausting to me. Funny thing is, I worshipped him when I was a kid. Dean could tell her about Lisa and Ben. He’s lived a different life, he doesn’t even know Sam and Dean. He stabs it with his machete, and it dissolves into a cloud of dust that gets all over him. Our leading heroes, who we’ve fallen in love with over the course of 13 years, are now being used as narrative tools to develop boring side characters in ways that feel forced and land flat because we have absolutely no reason this late in the game to start caring about people from an alternate universe who can’t even be bothered to acknowledge their hosts with a “thank you” when they bring home a young girl who shouldn’t have been hunting on her own in the first place and surely wouldn’t have returned without them. It left me wanting desperately to know what’s going on with Dean and what’s in his head (some part of Michael? ... Then, obviously, the djinn tries to attack Dean and that's when we see that, for some odd reason, Dean is immune to the djinn's powers and that's when Dean attacks him and kills him. Because she can’t be in every episode, they have to find a way to write her off for a bit which just made her an unlikable character in the beginning. Just loving that finally the boys are being allowed to grow up and mature, well done show, never saw that coming but nicely played! He doesn’t love Sam and Dean – and I don’t love him. It’s worth another note that YES, it feels so satisfying when the writers remember their own canon and reference it. She’s hunting alone for some reason, and not very competently. Ewww). Thanks, Debbie, That sounds actually pretty plausible… would be an interesting twist for sure! Bobby is not Bobby and Charlie is not Charlie. As for Mary….. she is the most frustrating part of the show for me. This episode could have worked better if it were Jack in peril instead. The brothers consider that maybe this is a manifestation, ala Fred Jones in the nursing home. I scratch my head. 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. I loved Dean praising and being protective of Sam. Mary, you need to see what a great family you have! They KNOW each other; they care about each other. As for Bobby, I know why they write him this way but I don’t get the warm and fuzzies with his character because he is not “our” Bobby. It’s so simple, so complicated, so tragic and beautiful, and I can’t seem to get enough of it. What if what’s playing out was more or less set up by the nefarious two? no need to say any more. . They also talk openly about the elephant always in the room – Michael. In the Arabian tradition, djinn are creatures made of smokeless fire, which were created after angels and before humans. For that the djinn gets an upgrade, and is able to read minds and see nightmares … 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. She tells him that Bobby’s wrong, that what she’s seen is that Sam is doing what he’s “born to do.”  She also tells him far too much about her relationship with Bobby, lamenting that he’s “not open like your dad.”. I have spent far too much of this season already yelling at my screen, “WHY DO I CARE?” and we’re only six episodes in. I am glad you are more honest about your feelings of each episode. That’s been consistent for the past few episodes, and I really hope it stays that way. 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. We have a small group of characters who we really care about and I don’t have it in me to add a whole lot more to that list, especially if it tends to push out the ones I DO care about. "I wish." The episode didn’t leave me jumping up and down raving about my Show or even feeling happy. . Thanks, Lynn, for sharing your impressions of the “Nightmare Logic” episode.
