Supernatural episodes are almost always funny but thanks to the dialogue and a certain man speaking said dialogue, I laughed a lot during “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” You know, when I wasn’t busy fearing for Sam’s life or wondering what in the world was going on with Dean and Amara.

Before I get to the hellishly awesome snarkiness of Lucifer (as played by the wonderful Mark Pellegrino), let’s discuss Supernatural‘s winter finale.

First, a bunch of questions:

  • Who screamed at their television once Lucifer said he’s the one that sent Sam the visions?
  • Yet who wasn’t shocked at the fact that Lucifer was the one to send Sam the visions and not God?
  • Is it wrong to ship Dean and Amara?
  • Who’s hoping Amara doesn’t get any older?
  • Who’s hoping Amara’s not gone for good?
  • Why did Rowena say it was ‘now or never’ for the spell that sent them to The Cage? What was the hurry? Why didn’t she want to wait for Dean? Did she separate Sam and Dean on purpose?
  • Who loved seeing Mark Pellegrino back as Lucifer?
  • Who was entertained by the episode’s chorus aka Rowena and Crowley?
  • Who is proud that Sam said no to being Lucifer’s meat suit?
  • Who’s scared as hell for Sam?
  • Who thinks Rowena might have sabotaged the warding on the Cage and that’s why Lucifer was able to draw Sam in? Or was it just the fact that The Darkness coming back had an effect on Hell?
  • Who thinks Lucifer is awesomely hilarious?

  • Did Amara try to suck out Dean’s soul and couldn’t? Why not?
  • What made her go in for the kiss? (Besides the obvious)
  • What does she mean, “We’ll be together?”
  • Who’s scarier? Lucifer or Amara?
  • Where was Chuck/God? Who wanted to see him show up?
  • Where was Cas while this was all going on? Why wasn’t he around?
  • Where was Adam/Michael? When are we going to see them?
  • How fun was it seeing Rowena fangirl over Lucifer?
  • Who wants to figure out how to time jump to Jan. 20 at 9/8c so we can watch the mid-season premiere on the CW right now?
  • How great was the Hell/Cage set? Kudos to the VFX Department.

Then some thoughts:

-Wow, if Lucifer’s telling the truth, he really did a number on Sam. The visions. The burning bush. Poor Sam. Lucifer knew how to get to him. He lured him to limbo and then tricked him into returning to The Cage. They are roomies once more. Man, I felt bad for Sam. He was so damn sure that God was sending him those visions. How crushing to find out they didn’t come from him. Sam has to be wondering when he’s going to catch a friggin’ break. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

-I’m proud of the fact that Sam said he wouldn’t become Lucifer’s meat suit again. He’s learned his lesson. No more deals. And he has to give his consent so hopefully whatever happens between now and episode ten (“The Devil in the Details”), isn’t too hard on him. I know he won’t give in, whatever he has to endure with the worst roommate in the history of roommates, he’ll stay strong.

-I missed Mark Pellegrino something fierce. He was fierce as Lucifer locked up in that Cage. He held all the power in his conversation with Sam. He is the devil after all.

-Did Crowley sound a little jealous when he asked Dean what Amara was to him? Just a thought.

-Rowena even mentioning Charlie makes me sad.

-Am I wrong to think that Rowena was part of luring Sam to Lucifer? I don’t know. Obviously, she’s an untrustworthy individual. But I keep thinking she was part of Lucifer’s plan.

-Emily Swallow looks like she’s having a lot of fun playing Amara. Amara smites. She changes water to blood. She kisses Dean Winchester. Yup, lots of fun.

-I don’t know about you guys, but I really enjoyed the Dean/Amara scenes although they were kind of choppy — too short and a little jarring because they were jammed between the scenes in hell. I think Dean and Amara have this weird chemistry that they probably shouldn’t have. I liked their chemistry and probably shouldn’t have.

-Amara clearly has major issues with her brother. She has a scary way of trying to get God’s attention. She has no problem killing his creations. And then she tries to make her soul-snagging ways sound beautiful and serene when it’s anything but.

-It’s crazy how Dean can sense Amara’s presence and he’s overcome by that “bliss” feeling whenever he’s around her. Is that really what a world ruled by The Darkness would look like? A bunch of “blissed out” people?

-I do love how Amara referred to Dean as a warrior. After he tried to stab her, her line was great: “You had to know that was pointless. I know that you’re a warrior and your instinct is to resist. But…I can’t be resisted.” Amara held all the power in her conversation with Dean.

-I do want to know a few of things. Why wasn’t she able to acquire Dean’s soul? Before the kiss, she tried to suck his soul out and nothing happened. Does Dean still have a soul? Or is something preventing her from getting to his soul? And like my earlier question, what’s the deal with going in for the kiss? What was that supposed to symbolize? And, most importantly, I want to know about this exchange that happened post-kiss:

Dean: What was that?
Amara: The future. The inevitable result of our first meeting. What you’ve been feeling since that moment. What we both felt. That we’re bonded. You’re the one who set me free.
Dean: No, that was an accident.
Amara: It was destiny. You bore the Mark. I am the original Mark. You and I will be together.
Dean: No. No, that’s not gonna happen.
Amara: It’s so simple, Dean. We will become one. Why wouldn’t you want that?

Dean no longer bears the physical mark of The Mark, but that doesn’t seem to matter to Amara. They are bonded, she says. She’s the Original Mark. What does she mean by “they will become one?”

-It’s funny how in the same episode, Lucifer wants Sam back as his meat suit and it seems that Dean could be marked as a vessel for The Darkness if that’s where the Show is going.

-I wish we’d seen more of the Angel (and Demon) grunts along the way this season. They sort of came out of nowhere. I don’t believe for one second that all the angels in heaven were powerful enough to take care of Amara. I just don’t.

-I know separating the brothers happens often, but I like Sam and Dean side by side in the big episodes. As the Rolling Stones song goes, “you can’t always get what you want.”

Speaking of which, Cas wasn’t in this winter finale. I missed his presence. But according to IMDB (and our interviews from Vancouver), he’ll be in the midseason premiere (“The Devil in the Details”), which I’m happy about.

Finally the Favorite Lucifer Quotes:

-This time, I’m focusing squarely on Lucifer because pretty much everything he uttered was gold. Although there were some other good lines, I’m here for Lucifer. Some of these were hilarious simply because of the way Pellegrino delivered them.

Lucifer: My old friend, Crowley.
Crowley: A mere acolyte carrying your torch.
Lucifer: You’re too kind. To yourself.

Lucifer: Sam Winchester. My old roomie. Hug it out?

Lucifer: I gotta say. I’m a little in the dark about this meeting. Am I up for parole? Time off for bad behavior?

Lucifer: That leads to my next question. Where is the Big Burrito himself? Where’s God in all of this? (Makes the sign of the cross)

Lucifer: And what was Daddy’s suggestion?
Sam: To seek out you.
Lucifer: Get outta town! Seriously?

Lucifer: And I need a ride out of here. I mean, I look swell in here and everything, but I’d be so much smoke topside.

Sam: Did you really expect me to agree to this? So, what, I just disappear while you take my body and get set loose on the world again?
Lucifer: I know, I know, Sam, it’s a lot to ask. But desperate times require desperate measures.
Sam: That’s not desperate. That’s certifiable!
Lucifer: Okay, hold on there a second, cowboy. Take a breath. You have been working with Crowley. You passed certifiable three off-ramps ago.

Lucifer: Together again. Hey, Sam Winchester, you miss me? Bet you did. I have to say, you’re — you’re extraordinarily calm given the circumstances.
Sam: It’s pretty much exactly how God told me it was gonna be. Guess I just have to go with it and play my hand.
Lucifer: And that would make so much sense if it was God that was doing the talking. You see, Sam, when the Darkness descended, the impact on Hell was massive. The Cage was damaged. Through the fissures, I was able to reach out. It wasn’t God inside your head, Sam. It was me. So you see, he’s not with you. He’s never been with you. It was always just me. So I…I guess I am your only hope.
Sam: It’s never gonna happen.
Lucifer: Ah, well, settle in there buddy. Hey, roomie. Upper bunk? Lower bunk? Or do you wanna share?

Supernatural returns Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 9/8c on the CW.

SPOILER: What’s ahead for Supernatural in episode 10 (Jensen and Jared talk about Dean meeting up with a character that Sam already met earlier this season)
