Luckily Sam is able to get a word in, and Jesse is eager to hear what he has to say, so he makes Demon Mommy shut up and sit down. Sam tells the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, not holding back any of the scary details. Much like Grey's Anatomy
, this week's demon is actually a thinly veiled metaphor for Sam to work out his own issues.
Much like Jesse, Sam had a little demon in him, but he chose poorly and went over to the Dark Side. Sam needs proof that, given the same set of circumstances, he could use his powers for good. Jesse, who's showing more maturity than Sam did when he gave in to his demon blood drinking days, agrees and makes the demon get out of his mom.
The Winchesters then try to convince Jesse to come with them, but leave his family behind because they'll just get hurt, like their dad did when a demon killed him. I know they're talking to a kid, but that's not entirely true. Yes, John Winchester was killed by a demon, but it was something he agreed to as part of a deal to save Dean's life. But I suppose that tiny detail doesn't help their argument.
Jesse agrees, but goes upstairs to say goodbye first. While he's in his room, he decides that he doesn't want to be a part of this fight, so he vanishes, but not before restoring everything back to normal, including Cas.
In the final car ride out of town, Sam and Dean look back on their childhoods and think that maybe life would've been better if their dad had lied to them. I hate to call B.S. on Supernatural
, but we've been down that road before, and I thought everyone was in agreement that lying to Sam and Dean about demons would've been worse.
Next week on Supernatural
: It's a repeat of the season 5 premiere. Stupid repeats! But don't worry, because in two weeks, Supernatural
is back with Dean as an old man. And poker!<<PREVIOUS (1) (2) (3) (4)
