I didn't forget about the show being on this week! Yay! Ha. Too bad this week's episode wasn't as worth watching immediately as the past couple of weeks when I was delayed. Not to say it was awful or anything, just kind of blah. They did try to make a monster of the week have more of a connection to the main story, sort of, but only just.
Anyhow, yes, a seeming monster of the week is afoot in the form of a ghost killing a bunch of teachers. Sam and Dean trace the ghost to a shipwreck from the 1700s. A shipwreck that it just so happens was supposed to contain Crowley's son so many moons ago. You know, Gavin, who was brought to the present day by Abaddon some time ago. I honestly didn't even really remember that happening, but there you go, paying it back, show!
The boys don't know where Gavin is, so they try going to Crowley for help. But, Crowley is little busy at the moment with none other than our dearly resurrected favorite form of Lucifer. That is to say, Mark Pellegrino, back at it again. Crowley apparently subverted Rowena's spell, and now has Lucifer chained up. He also conveniently saved the vessel he used before, hence Mark being back again. Lucifer also tells Crowley that his bun in the oven is still alive, which big C is none too pleased about.
And what about that bun in the oven? Well, Kelly is out there, barely able to scrounge enough change for a small orange juice. Some angels are on her tail, but the demon who we knew was going to appear, Dagon, does indeed appear just in time to save her from the angels. And it looks like Lucifer calls her there at the end of the episode as well, so you know that's all going to end well.
Okay, back to the boys. Since Crowley won't help, they call up the next best thing - Rowena. She's reluctant at first, but eventually agrees, and they tell her Gavin is her grandson. Basically, it turns out that Gavin's sweetheart had stowed herself away on the ship, thinking he was going to be on it. But, he never was on it thanks to time travel, and she ended up being taken advantage of on the ship before dying aboard it. Because their childhood teacher said she deserved it, she's now going after teachers in the modern day.
The only way to fix things, really, is for Gavin to go back and join her on the ship. Crowley shows up to object to all of this, but Rowena stops him from interfering, so the boys are able to send him back. Crowley is none too pleased with his mother, but she was just getting some payback from that time when Crowley made her kill that kid she loved to remove the Mark of Cain. You know. No big.
The boys had also tried to call up Mary to see if she wanted to join them on the hunt, but she declined, saying she was still recovering, but instead she was off working with Mr. Ketch, taking down a Rugaru with some head explody device thingy. Ketch wants her distance herself from the boys because she's a better hunter when she's not motherly, but instead she decides to confess to them that she's been working with the BMOL. They're none too pleased about it, but she asks them to at least listen to her. So... we'll see what happens there.
- Seriously, though, are they just never going to show previews at the end of the show again? Do they really think the little bumper about Riverdale is making a difference? Because I have to tell you, I watch on my DVR anyway, so I'm not sticking around in realtime to watch Riverdale.
- Even though I've been a bit over the Lucifer storyline as a whole, I must admit that it is nice to have Mark back again. He's such an improvement over every other version of Lucifer, it's almost silly.
- You know the BMOL and the Winchesters will have to team up to try to take down Lucifer once he inevitably gets free and the baby is either born or almost born or something. It just feels naturally where things will have to go, right?
Crowley: What, no snarky devilish comment? You have nothing to say?
Dean: Hmm. Aztecs were pretty serious about their killings. Aztec ghost. Yeah I like that.
Dean: Wait a minute, I know something about something.
Lucifer: A chip off the ole ball of Heavenly light, if you know what I mean.
Crowley: Turns out behind that whole moron facade, you and your brother are, in fact, morons!
Lucifer: I could use a little dad advice right about now. When do you let 'em date?
Dagon: I'm a demon. You're Rosemary. Complete with baby.
Mary: Do not give me the face.
Dean: What face.
Mary: You know the face.
Dean: There's no face.
Mary: That's the face.
