Editor's Note: In anticipation of Supernatural's final season resuming on Oct. 8th, The CW is rerunning several of the initial 13 episodes from season 15. To get us all back into the groove of watching and discussing each story, Deb has agreed to once again share her recap reviews of the good, the bad and the random of each episode! Enjoy!
 
This is how this works: I will give my TOP 5 choices for the Good and The Bad  of each season 15 episode that has aired thus far, PLUS a random fact that may or may not have anything to do with the episode. It depends what I am thinking at that moment! After you read my opinions, I would like to hear your TOP 5 Good/Bad list from the same episode. The point is that every episode must have both good and bad stuff for you, or you are not being honest with yourself. 😉 “The Bad” stuff might be easier to write when the episode is not to your liking, then other times “The Good” will be easier. The Good/Bad stuff can be silly things - that is alright too!

This will be a good catch up before we all watch the last new episodes. So, if you like, join me in watching the reruns. Hopefully, I can write these recaps for all the remaining episodes. We Got Work to Do! 

Start back with 15.1 "Back and to the Future" if you missed it, then let us check out the next episode! 

Supernatural 15.02 "Raising Hell"

The GOOD

1. Sam taking charge
2. Kevin!
3. Sam’s wound connection to Chuck
4. You tell him, Amara!
5. Jack the Ripper

1. I do love when Sam takes charge. He has a commanding authority stature that he should use more often. 12.22 "Who We Are" is one of my favorites from recent times. Also, how Dean focuses and listens to him nowadays. Of course, it did not help for some of the town’s folk, but for the most of them it did. It was not for the lack of effort from Sam, though.
 
2. It was so nice to see Kevin again. He was right by the side of the Winchesters helping them as usual. Why he was there, and his backstory was intriguing even though I think that Kevin did not deserve what happened to him. The whole thing was tragic, and we got to say goodbye to another fan favorite. We are getting ready for the things to come.        
 
3. We got more hints about what the wound is doing to Sam and Chuck and what influence it has. The premise was very interesting, and the fact that Chuck is not at full power made things seem a little bit better for the boys. Together with the “visions”, I could not wait to see what the story-line had in store for us. It felt significant.
 
4. First of all, I am glad Amara is back. I think she is the strongest character in Supernatural. Yes, even above God. Even though her story could have been written better in some spots, I liked it - her prison time, experiencing the world for the first time and her brother issues. Also, her interest in Dean made it personal. When she told Chuck to stuff it, I was all for it. Go get it, girl. PS. He did vaporize your masseuse, so he deserved it.
 
5. Francis Tumblety aka Jack the Ripper was very well cast. I think all his scenes were in daytime, though, so all that menace and malice he could have had was wasted. He did not even do too much in the end, which was a shame. Still, the actor’s potential was great enough to make this list.   
 
 
The BAD
 
daria devil
 
 
1. The town folk
2. That was a very sad ending for Kevin ☹
3. Rowena x Ketch, Wretch?! Wait, wha… NO!
4. Kevin in Hell? Chuck is a dirt bag…
5. Daylight still does not work with ghosts
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
SPN 0207 1
 
 
1. No, I still did not like them. They acted stupidly. If someone tells you to not go into a quarantine area because that might get you and others killed, and you still do it anyway… you do not care about the well-being of others. They were the usual cannon fodder. Unfortunately, it sounds like real life at the moment. Normally, we would only say people would not be this stupid in the show. I wish that were true. -End of real-life talk-
 
2. That is the ending Kevin gets? Walk for eternity among the lands before he goes crazy? Then probably end up being killed by a hunter and he returns to Hell? That was a horrible way to say a goodbye to a beloved character. The story gave him a dirty deal. Justice for Kevin!     
 
3. I am all in for Rowena’s sense of being and her personality. She is a woman that takes what she wants, nonetheless. BUT the scenes with Gabriel and now with Ketch were pretty horrible in my opinion, or at least poorly executed/written for my liking. I cannot say I would do it any better, but something about it was way off. I am sure there were different ways it could have worked.
 
4. Alright, so all this time Kevin was in Hell and his “upgrade” was the worst way possible? It feels like rewriting of canon, but in all honesty, we really are not sure what happened back then so anything goes. Also, Chuck is a dirt bag. I guess he did not want the prophet in Heaven for some reason.
 
5. Even more so in this episode, the daylight scenes with the ghosts did not work. That was more than clear with Jack the Ripper. The ghosts were created  in great detail, with their clothes and their grey figures. The problem was that we could see the detail. It was just not scary enough.  
   
 
 
RANDOM Fact
 
 
 SPN 0630 1
 
 
Iron (/ˈaɪərn/) is a chemical element with symbol Fe (from Latin: ferrum) and atomic number 26. It is a metal that belongs to the first transition series and group 8 of the periodic table. It is by mass the most common element on Earth, forming much of Earth's outer and inner core. It is the fourth most common element in the Earth's crust. In its metallic state, iron is rare in the Earth's crust, limited mainly to deposition by meteorites. Iron ores, by contrast, are among the most abundant in the Earth's crust, although extracting usable metal from them requires kilns or furnaces capable of reaching 1,500 °C (2,730 °F) or higher, about 500 °C (900 °F) higher than what is enough to smelt copper. Humans started to master that process in Eurasia only about 2000 BCE [not verified in body], and the use of iron tools and weapons began to displace copper alloys, in some regions, only around 1200 BCE. That event is considered the transition from the Bronze Age to the Iron Age. In the modern world, iron alloys, such as steel, inox, cast iron and special steels are by far the most common industrial metals, because of their mechanical properties and low cost.
 
Pristine and smooth pure iron surfaces are mirror-like silvery-gray. However, iron reacts readily with oxygen and water to give brown to black hydrated iron oxides, commonly known as rust. Unlike the oxides of some other metals, that form passivating layers, rust occupies more volume than the metal and thus flakes off, exposing fresh surfaces for corrosion.
 

There you have it! Now I am dying to read your choices for Top 10. Remember, anything goes!

Keep Going with Deb's take on 15.03 "The Rupture"!
