One of the best this season
5 May 2017 | by KingslaaySee all my reviews

This was a great episode, thoroughly enjoyed it. It certainly ranks highly compared to the previous episodes. Nice to see other hunters feature in the episode with a great story line. The Winchesters team up with two young hunters or witches to track down their mother. Similar to how Dean approached Sam all those years ago to go looking for their father. In both cases it worked out horribly and tore families apart. Nice to have a flashback and reference to the first episodes that started it all. We saw a new type of witch and magic that wasn't well known in the supernatural universe. A powerful old witch who wanted to pass on her powers to a new generation. She didn't care who she killed as she already made a deal with a demon. Castiels absence after the explosive end last episode actually worked as there are other things cooking.

Mary also had an interesting time with Ketch as we know he is slowly plotting the end for American Hunters. She grows suspicious of the Men of Letters as Mick is away and Ketch seems to be hiding something. We saw a great fight sequence between her and Ketch.

A very well made episode, I like how the end of the episode resembled the first few moments of it with Mary being tied up in front of Ketch. The only downfall was the female British men of letters agent show up at the end. She never flew with fans to begin with so its no picnic seeing her back. Since we have three episodes left hopefully she will be killed off and that unfriendly headquarters be burned down.

Things are shaping up nicely for a thrilling season finale.
