First Impressions Review: 14x14 "Ouroboros"

Finally getting caught up! I hate being this far behind. Ugh.



Remember way back in Season 1 when the boys were always concerned about wiping down their fingerprints when they were checking out a new crime scene? Five people in this scene, all touching things and...nobody cares?

I do like this scene w/ Cas and Dean in the Mexican restaurant and I quoted it all out below for...reasons.

Castiel: Hey, Dean?
Dean: I'm fine.
Castiel: What you're doing, even just sitting here and having a cup of coffee, is a Herculean feat. I can't imagine the willpower it's taking to...keep Michael imprisoned. Are you really, fine?
Dean: I don't know, Cas. But that's what I'm supposed to say, right? 'I'm fine', keep on moving? That's what we all say.
Castiel: No, Dean.
Dean: Okay. There's this pounding in my head. It never stops. Michael's in there, and he is fighting hard to get out. And I can't let my guard down...not for a second. I'm barely even sleeping.
Castiel: Well, that's not sustainable.
Dean: No, no. It's probably not. But...no point in complaining about it. It's on me.
Castiel: No. It's on us. We're here to help you.
Dean: I know. I know that. And I appreciate that. I do. Look, before the kid gets back...I know I agreed to give you guys time.
Castiel: Hey, Dean, and we will find a solution.
Dean: Okay. But if...if you don't. We still have Plan B.
Castiel: Dean, come on.
Dean: Coffin. Ocean. Done.


Meanwhile, Jack was in the restroom coughing up blood again and healing himself with his powers. Uh, oh.

So they're hunting a Gorgon named Noah. Hey! Something new! I like it.
However, whenever the Gorgon plucks out someone's eyeballs he does it far too easily in my opinion. It's like he's just picking up a pearl onion. I don't now much about anatomy but I do know there's a lot of "stuff" attached to an eyeball.

So how does this work with Jack being turned into a dog (and a cute one, hee!)? Is it a timed thing? How did he take human form again with Rowena not being in the room? Loved seeing Sam & Rowena being the worried/bickering "parents" though. And poor Jack had his temperature taken. lol :(

Maggie's running everything back at the Bunker....but not for long.

Noah slamming Dean's head into the wall...twice. Ouch!!! :(
Yeah! Jack gets to cut Noah's head off!
Cas got poisoned and when Jack gives him the anti-venom solution it doesn't work - so he uses his powers to save Cas.
Meanwhile, Dean is still out cold. Nooooo!!!

Jack wants to use his powers to save Dean, but Cas argues with him against it. He just can't afford to use up more of his soul.

Jack: What is the good of having these powers if I can't help the people that I love, if I can't help them when they need it?

Meanwhile, Dean is freaking out in the Infirmary. Michael has escaped!!!!
And gone into Rowena...and killed Maggie and all the residing hunters. Poor Dean feels responsible and blames Sam & Cas for not putting him into that coffin in the ocean. Noooo, Dean!!!

Always suspected Rowena cared about the boys and Cas (and now Jack). ;)

Why isn't Michael attacking Jack like the others? Taking him on separately?
Yay! For Jack finally killing Michael! Or is he really dead??? Yeah, I think he is. I hope he is.
So...Jack is back at full power...but at what cost?


Final Thoughts:

Overall, I enjoyed this episode. Satisfied my hurt!Dean needs and Sam being all worried and comforting. *g*
Cas had good scenes with Dean and Jack...Sam & Rowena got to work together. It was solid all the way around. :)


Quotes:

Castiel: Okay, um... these killings -- it seems like there's a ritualistic quality to the crime scenes, right? It's almost liturgical. It means religious.

Rowena: I believe we are hunting a gorgon, an ancient cursed being, with an affinity for snakes and a hunger for human flesh.
Dean: Snakes for hair? That's like Medusa.
Rowena: You know about Medusa?
Dean: Oh, yeah. Clash of the Titans? Turns guys to stone?


Dean: Yeah. Who would just let themselves be eaten? Hey, I'll say it again, my money's on witchcraft.
Rowena: Och, you. Always blaming witches.
Dean: 'Cause a lot of times, it's witches.
Rowena: Speaking of which, I'm also curious as to how your brother is managing to keep an archangel locked away inside his mind.
Sam: Because... he's Dean. And Dean is Dean. He's fine.

Dean: 'Dean, I see you standing alone by the truck reading this note. I see you and the tall man and the red-headed witch chasing me. I will always see you. Stop, or I will make you stop. Regards, Noah.' I'm on a first-name basis with some psycho pen pal. That's aces.
Castiel: Somehow he knows you. But you're not standing alone. Why doesn't he mention me?
Dean: Maybe you're not his type.


Rowena: What did you do to that boy? When I cast the transformation spell, I felt something else pushing back, some other thing inside him. It's volatile magic, powerful and it's stitched to him like some kind of parasite. I was curious before, but now I am worried, so I'll ask you again, Sam. What did you do?
Sam: Okay, listen. Jack's being careful. We're all being careful. That's all you need to know.
Rowena: Fine. Don't tell me. But using dangerous, mysterious magic, regardless of the cost... that's a very on-brand me thing to do.
Sam: Well, thank you.
Rowena: Of course, Samuel. Until very recently, I was the villain.

Rowena: Yeah, well, assuming you're not all paralyzed or eaten... off with his head.

Victim: You're just preying on -- on helpless men?
Noah: 'Helpless men' -- that's rich. No, I do eat ladies, too, but women have become so cautious lately. Must be all that finally waking up from centuries of misogynistic oppression. Good for them. Bad for you. It's so bad for him, isn't it, Felix?

Jack: I hate seeing him like that. But he's gonna be okay, right? I mean, it's Dean. He...It was a fight. It was...It was just a fight.
Castiel: Every time we go out there's always a risk.
Jack: I..I can't think about losing him or -- or Sam or you. I-I just -- I hate -- I hate thinking about it.
Castiel: Yeah, so do I. But, Jack... you know, Sam and Dean, they're human, and they're very extraordinary, brave, special humans, but they're -- they're still humans. And humans burn bright, but for a very brief time compared to, you know, things like us. And eventually, they're gone, even the very best ones, and we have to carry on. It's just -- It's part of growing up.
Jack: Losing people.
Castiel: Yes.
Jack: What's the point of being a cosmic being if everyone I care about is just gonna... leave?
Castiel: The point is that they were here at all and you got to know them, you -- When they're gone, it will hurt, but that hurt will remind you of how much you loved them.
Jack: That sounds... awful.
Castiel: It is, but it's also living. So when Dean wakes up -- and he will wake up -- we just have to remember to appreciate the time that we all have together now.



Michael: If only Dean had used that coffin when he had the chance.
Dean: Never too late for a good idea. Sam, get the cuffs.
Michael: That's not very nice. And if we're not being nice, what if... you couldn't breathe? That's a terrible feeling, isn't it? What if you were also blind?
Dean: Sam.
Michael: And what if you just hurt? But... fun as this is, I think... no more games. This time, you all die. This time, the world burns.

Michael: How dare you! Burning off your soul? You'll run out soon enough.
Jack: It's worth the cost.
Michael: I should have killed you when I had the chance.
Jack: I feel the same.
Michael: I am the commander of the host! The cleanser of worlds! I will not be challenged by a child!
Jack: I am not a child! I'm the son of Lucifer. I'm a hunter! I am a Winchester! You won't hurt anyone ever again!
Dean: Jack?
Jack: Michael...he's dead.
Sam: Jack...are you...
Jack: I'm me again.
