"The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable, like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory.” ― Gary Zukav

Our Supernatural year started with The Road So Far - "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica, which is already a huge deal. For this premiere, I thought that it would be easiest just to write about the events shown in the recap that lead us to here, and boy there was a lot. The word I chose for this article was "birth". Here we go.

Then

The brothers got Mary back which was a shock for the both of them. Castiel crashed down to a field. Dean searched with Mary for Sam that was held captive. Mary was shocked also that she was brought back. Lucifer took the President of United States as a vessel and he had a one night stand. The brothers, Crowley, Castiel and Rowena exorcised Lucifer. Kelly wanted to die first but then she embraced motherhood with Castiel by her side. Eileen was briefly among us and she got to hug Sam.

Castiel was happy when he saw Dean and that he didn’t die so he glomp-hugged him. We got some Reservoir dogs walking, picture watching and Winchester family hugs. Friends supported one another. Dean almost lost himself but he also fought through Mary’s happy place to bring her back. We had exploding action and we met Lily Sunder and her quest for revenge. We had guns, Impala, and Crowley got punched by Dean. We had different MOTW that Dean, Mary and Sam took care of and Sam killed a god Moloch with the Colt. A vampire got his head chopped off by Mary but that was not all.

The British Men of Letters base exploded. (Good riddance). Sam shot their computer and Jody killed Doctor Hess. Lucifer “killed” Crowley part 1 and Castiel killed Ishim with an angel blade. Sam pierced Ramiel with a spear and killed the Alpha Vampire with the Colt. Later Dagon destroyed it and Dean saw the whole thing. Eileen was killed by Ketch and a hellhound and Sam saw her body. Kelly started to transfer chaotic magic around their hiding place when she was closer to give birth. Castiel was like a terminator and he stayed close by to a blast. Dagon blasted angels, Claire got some inside knowledge how to be a monster and Crowley saved Castiel by breaking the spear. Kelly juiced up Castiel and he burned up Dagon. A rift was opened to another dimension and Castiel guided the boys in. It is not a nice place but they met AU Bobby. Kelly gave birth and blasted Mary away. Crowley sacrificed himself. Lucifer stabbed Castiel in the back and then he pulled Mary into the AU. Kelly was dead and Sam followed burned footprints to the nursery where he found the Nephilim. Castiel rested dead on the ground and Dean was in shock about everything.

Now

Meet Jack! And enjoy the fan videos.


Supernatural | Feeling Good [+13x01] by: arthropia

Feeling Good by Muse

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Reeds driftin' on by
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom in the trees
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun
You know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies are all havin' fun
You know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Yeah, freedom is mine
And you know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me

Oh
Freeer than you
Oh
Feeling good

After The Rain by Nickelback

All your life, scramble and scurry
Take your time, rather than hurry
Never too late to write the best of your story
Remember to breathe or else you're gonna be sorry
Life's no race, it's a companion
Always face with reckless abandon
The ticket to life as my mother once told me
Stick with your pride and you're gonna be lonely (gonna be lonely)

Everybody says that life takes patience
But nobody wants to wait
Everybody says we need salvation
But nobody wants to be saved
The light in the tunnel is just another runaway train
The blue skies we wait on
Are gonna have to come after the rain

Spend your days happy and grateful
Avoid the taste of wanting and wasteful
Every good thing will come in moderation
Envy and greed will only lead to frustration
Choose your friends, carefree and kindly
Choose your words, careful and wisely
Always be there to lend a comforting shoulder
One will be there to share a day when you're older (a day when you're older}

Everybody says that life takes patience
But nobody wants to wait
Everybody says we need salvation
But nobody wants to be saved
The light in the tunnel is just another runaway train
The blue skies we wait on
Are gonna have to come after the rain

All mistakes, committed upon us
Always take a toll on the conscience
Every regret is a debt that you live with
Never forget to remember forgiveness

Everybody says that life takes patience
But nobody wants to wait
Everybody says we need salvation
But nobody wants to be saved
The light in the tunnel is just another runaway train
The blue skies we wait on
Are gonna have to come after the rain (ra-ai-ai-ain)

Gonna have to come after the rain (ra-ai-ai-ain)
Gonna have to come after the rain (ra-ai-ai-ain)
Gonna have to come after the rain (ra-ai-ai-ain)
Rain, yeah
Ra-ai-ai-ain
Gonna have to come after the rain

Muse are an English rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The band consists of Matt Bellamy (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Chris Wolstenholme (bass guitar, backing vocals, keyboards) and Dominic Howard (drums, percussion).

Muse released their debut album, Showbiz, in 1999, showcasing Bellamy's falsetto and a melancholic alternative rock style. Their second album, Origin of Symmetry (2001), expanded their sound, incorporating wider instrumentation and romantic classical influences, and earned them a reputation for energetic live performances. Absolution (2003) saw further classical influence, with orchestra on tracks such as "Butterflies and Hurricanes", and became the first of five consecutive UK number-one albums.

Black Holes and Revelations (2006) incorporated electronic and pop elements, influenced by 1980s groups such as Depeche Mode, displayed in singles such as "Supermassive Black Hole". The album brought Muse wider international success [due in large part to its use for Twilight - per Nightsky!]. The Resistance (2009) and The 2nd Law (2012) explored themes of government oppression and civil uprising and cemented Muse as one of the world's major stadium acts. Their seventh album, Drones (2015), was a concept album about drone warfare and returned to a harder rock sound. Muse have won numerous awards, including two Grammy Awards, winning the Grammys for Best Rock Album for The Resistance and Drones, two Brit Awards, winning Best British Live Act twice, five MTV Europe Music Awards and eight NME Awards. They have sold over 20 million albums worldwide.

Quotes

Sam: Okay, I'm- I'm looking for a guy. Uh, he- he's about your height. Uh... naked.
Miriam: You and me both, sister.

Dean: Okay, Chuck... or God or whatever. I... I need your help. See, you -- you left us. You left us. You went off... You said... you said the Earth would be fine because it had me and it had Sam, but it's not, and we're not. We've lost everything. And now you're gonna bring him back. Okay? You're gonna bring back Cas, you're gonna bring back Mom, you're gonna bring 'em all back. All of them. Even Crowley. 'Cause after everything that you've done, you owe us, you son of a bitch. So you get your ass down here and you make this right. Right here and right now! Please. Please help us.

Sam: You wanna say anything?
Jack: I... What do you say?
Sam: Right. Thank you. You say thank you. And you say you're sorry. You hope they're somewhere without, uh, sadness or pain. You hope they're somewhere better. You say goodbye.

Trivia and Minutiae

Lily: The mother's upstairs, but she's-
Conrad: I don't care about the brood mare. Where's the child?
A "brood mare" is a mare, or female horse, used for the express purposes of breeding.

 

For a split second in the season's new title card, an inverted cross followed by an inverted pentagram flashes before "Supernatural" explodes on the screen.

 

As Miriam was speaking with Dean outside Pirate Pete's Jolly Treats, she can be seen writing "Bitch" on the Impala's dirty backseat window.

 

This episode marked the first time that Sam has killed an angel.
