What could have been a very timely episode turned into a very silly one, in my opinion. I'll be honest, it's been hard to concentrate on everyday things since Tuesday. I usually keep this blog completely separate from anything political because that's not what you're here for. You're here to read some stuff about Supernatural and see some recipes and that's what I'm giving you. But I am very sad and disheartened about what happened on Tuesday, and I'll leave it at that.
So, yes, this episode about the resurrection of Adolf Hitler via an enchanted horcux, er stopwatch, could've been timely given who has been elected, but I suppose they didn't know this was going to happen back when they wrote and filmed it, so whatever. That doesn't really mean it was an altogether entertaining and super interesting episode regardless. Because if I'm being honest, I was only half paying attention most of the time, and didn't particularly care about what was happening for the rest.
Basically, Dean finds this case where a couple people in an antique shop were burned alive. Turns out, the owner of the antique shop was a big Nazi fan, and the stopwatch he had been intending to sell this rich white woman was some Nazi relic. The Winchesters call up their Jewish buddy to find out if he knows anything, but that's kind of a bust. What they do know is that another body has shown up, only this time there was also a survivor.
Only said survivor is taken by one of those Nazi worshipers, the thule or whatever the heck they are. Sam and Dean catch up with them and capture the dude, who confesses that the stopwatch was Hitler's and essentially has a bit of Hitler's soul in it and they want to resurrect him. Only, they need someone of his bloodline in order to do. Hence - that girl who this Nazi dude kidnapped.
The Nazis end up getting her back again, and transfer her blood into their leader, and do some spell and such to resurrect Hitler into his body. He's generally wacky and played for comedy, and eventually the brothers are able to kick some butt and kill all the Nazis, with Dean getting the killshot on Hitler himself. Which, of course, he will never let Sam hear the end of.
So. That happened.
- At least next week's episode looks interesting. Apologies to any of you who actually liked tonight's, but maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it either.
- Not mentioned above, in the beginning of the episode Dean refuses his beloved pie, but of course after besting Hitler in the end, he must go get some dang pie. Har har har.
Sam: Looks like we missed the cavalry.
Dean: Guess we should go home then.
Dean: We've gotta follow that car. I've always wanted to say that.
Dean: Boy, family's a bitch, ain't it?
Dean: Let's go kill some Nazi's.
Dean: Heil this.
Sam: Dude, you killed Hitler.
Dean: Yeah. Awesome.
