So, let's start with geeking out insanely over Jody being back! Now, I do not trust it when characters appear from earlier episodes. This show has taught me that if a character from previous seasons comes back, they're likely going to die. Thankfully nobody did. I think losing Jody would have broken me completely. I absolutely love her! And having Alex and Claire back was an interesting combination! I can't believe the two don't get along. Or didn't. Sarcasm, it's hard to really tell over text. But seriously, I loved seeing those two back, especially living with Jody. Let's just take a minute to talk about how utterly awkward that "family" dinner was. I laughed so hard it wasn't even funny! It was hilarious!
I did feel bad for Claire though, she'd been right the whole time. And if the two had just listened to her....ah well. Vampires being after Alex was pretty scary, but thankfully Sam and Dean saved the day. The tension that built up to that fight though was pretty intense. For several minutes I wasn't sure whether they were going to kill Jody off or not. I really couldn't handle losing someone so precious. She's been with us for so long it's hard to imagine life without her. Alex and Claire are the cutest foster siblings ever. Okay, I know they don't get along, but at the end they'd reached an understanding! It's an adorably family!
Again, this episode had that older feel to it. It gave a sense of nostalgia from previous seasons. There was a sense of humor and a sense of danger mixed together. What was missing was any links to the Darkness, Crowley, or Casifer (that's his name now, I'm not even sorry). You would have thought an episode with Cas' vessels daughter would somehow have Cas (hosting Lucifer or not) show up. There was no Casifer, however, and our boys still don't know that Cas allowed Luci out of the cage. All in all, I enjoyed seeing Jody and her family unit. Alex decided she couldn't handle the hunter aspect, and she really doesn't want Claire or Jody to end up hurt because of her. Jody did open her eyes with Claire though, and admitted she'd help teach the girl to hunt properly. Seeing the softer side to Jody is always a treat. Especially when she mothers the Boys.
