" There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” ― Elie Wiesel

 

No, no, no, no, nope, no and NO! Unfortunately, this episode is my last review for season 12. I would have liked to end the season 12 fan video reviews on a higher note but I can’t. The fan videos are the only good part that this episode has left behind. My brain literally malfunctioned after the first few minutes of the show. That was lucky because the rest of the episode is a blur - I was so annoyed that Eileen was killed that remembering everything from the episode would be painful. Like Sam said and I agree: “I-I... I wanna punch something in the face.” Thinking about this episode still makes me furious.

 

You know… I loved how professional and also sweet Eileen Leahy was. I loved her effect on Sam. If Eileen was excited - so was Sam. If she was sad - so was Sam. Their chemistry and teasing of one another was cute. I guess I am then a “Saileen” shipper. I don’t care. All I know is that Sam was robbed again someone he had grown to like more and more and someone Dean regarded as a friend like Charlie. Watching him tease Sam about her was great. You probably guess what word I will quote this time in my article. It is injustice but I could have picked loads of different adjectives to describe how I feel about the episode and it would not have been pretty. Anyway, like I said, these videos and the music are great and they are all in tribute to Eileen Leahy. Also I want to give a shout out to Shoshannah Stern who is a sweetheart and played Eileen so perfectly.

 

"When I was growing up, my mother was always a friend to my siblings and me (in addition to being all the other things a mom is), and I was always grateful for that because I knew she was someone I could talk to and joke with, and argue with and that nothing would ever harm that friendship.” —  Marlo Thomas

 

"I asked him what the amulet meant to him, what its meaning was. At first, I thought he wasn't going to answer. But then, in a haunting voice, he said that it represented the dance with death. I was horrified by that. He said the dance with death was the way of the War Wizard.” ― Terry Goodkind, The First Confessor

 

"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.” —  Friedrich Nietzsche

 

" I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful - for all of it.” —  Kristin Armstrong

 

 

" For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands.” —  Christina Rossetti

 A long while I had trouble grasping an idea to use in this article. Luckily I could revisit it after the season ended and decided to choose the word 'sister' as my theme. We have found out that they are trying for another spinoff to Supernatural called Wayward Sisters. This episode was a little prequel to it. I also found three videos for the theme of the article this time, so, fair warning. Spoilers ahead!

 

"Don't call the world dirty because you forgot to clean your glasses.” — Joseph Addison

 

After "The Raid", I was wondering what theme to use in the next article. I felt that it should have a light mood and a funny inside joke. So this article is an appreciation post to all the times Sam and Dean have worn glasses! This is a rarity because they have only used glasses in 8.14 Trial and Error and 12.15 Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell. The fan video will focus on the Hellhounds seen with the glasses because they appear in this episode, have taken a few beloved characters from us and they are probably the only monsters the boys still run away from!

 

"The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and nature sink in years, But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the wars of elements, The wrecks of matter, and the crush of worlds." — Joseph Addison

 

In this article I will focus on two immortal things, both of them as magnificent as they can be (although it seems The Colt wasn’t that immortal after all! TBC).
