Episode 09×14 AKA The one with Kevin Tran
It’s Winchester Wednesday! I, for one (again, not the Collectress, surprise!) have missed the boys and am glad to have Team Free Will well represented in this episode, if not all together as of yet. We also get the beginnings of a new Winchester dynamic (#betterbrotherbond anyone?), a Cas storyline and (spoilers) to say a proper goodbye to Kevin Tran.
The bunker is haunted. Lights flicker, the coffee machine goes wonky, and the boys figure that the bunker must be haunted by someone who recently died inside the walls. Yup. It’s Kevin Tran. The ex-prophet of the Lord is noveau dead and so it takes him a while to figure out how to manifest for Sam and Dean. He finally shows himself as Dean is in one of his self-loathing monologues, voicing what we all are thinking, which is to say the Dean Winchester, pity party of one is getting old. Kevin informs the boys that Heaven is closed, as in, no new spirits are allowed through the gates. He, along with a line of ghosts that rivals the DMV times infinity, are stuck in the Veil until further notice. Kevin reveals that he heard through the ghost-grapevine that his mom is still alive and implores the Winchesters to find her. The boys head to Wichita, Kansas to find a ghost named “Candy”, who claims to have been locked away with Linda Tran in a public storage, one the boys easily find and infiltrate.
Let’s just start with the hard facts. This week’s episode of SPN was an angsty Winchester feels kind of episode that reminded me just how much I am friggen in love with the story of Dean and Sam. I haven’t cried during an ep of Supernatural since–well, since the season 8 finale and I have felt pretty blasé about 9, until “Bad Boys“. I am delighted to go to this weekend’s Supernatural BurCon with such a strong episode fresh in my memory. Such a great character study of Dean! Gaaah, I can’t help but love that boy. That being said, let’s get started, shall we?
First of all, I had to go back and debunk my own spoilers from last week. No, Dean didn’t have sex in “Bad Boys”. Thank gawd, because that would’ve ruined the mood. No, he’s gonna do it next week in S09E08, “Rock and a Hard Place”. With a reformed porn star or some nonsense. Supposedly, it will be funny, but I’m not laughing. Is this a “fuck or die” kind of spell, SPN writers? Have you been reading fanfic again? At least Sheriff Mills will be back.
