Sigh… next week is the last episode of the season. I’m going to miss my boys. Let’s recap first.
Last week‘s “Dark Dynasty,” brought us almost the full Styne (otherwise known as Frankenstein) family, bent on getting their hands on the Book of the Damned. I think they should go meet Dr. Dulmacher aka The Dollmaker from Gotham. They would have fit right in on his island. Their methods were so gross. I suppose there is no real way to cull body parts without being disgusting, but still.
Charlie, Castiel, and Rowena (Felicia Day, Misha Collins, and Ruth Connell) were like a comedy show, bickering in the funniest way possible. Until…
Charlie is dead. I KNEW it was gonna happen as soon as Rowena starting talking about how the Winchesters (Sam and Dean – Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) would get her killed. She served back that they were her brothers. That means death in TV world. She dies honorably, helping til the end.
Supernatural 10.22 “The Prisoner” review: They burn Charlie’s body amidst sad teary flashbacks. Sam should be a little more upset though. All bets are off with Dean now. “Stynes! come out and plaayyy!” He charges in alone to a house of killers focused on killing him.
Sam, do you have to ruin everything? You break Dean. You are directly responsible for Charlie’s death. You turn off Crowley’s humanity. What’s wrong with you? That was the most fun Crowley has been in years! I mean, I guess Rowena is going to be the comic relief now. She is delightful.
I know if I was Sam, I’d do the exact same thing – whatever it takes to save my family, even at the expense of others. We have the judgment luxury of being spectators.
So Dean gets captured and starts the bloody spree. He goes too far, even for a Marked up Dean – really too far. He kills the young Styne boy, who begs for his life, and was shown bullied at the beginning. And then he beats the shit out of Castiel and almost kills him.
I know they were renewed for season 11 and I am glad, but I really don’t know how Dean will come back from this. Can they really just blame this all on the mark?
I really hope next week’s finale reunites the entire season of guests – Charlie, Bobby (Jim Beaver), Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), and Claire Novak (Kathryn Newton). The coming attractions for the finale show guest star Death (Julian Richings). Love when he is on the show!
The season finale of Supernatural airs next Wednesday, May 20th, at 9pm ET on The CW.
