Contains Spoilers from the episode!!!!
This mid-season finale of supernatural ended as I had expected, with the two brothers of on their own and a cliffhanger at the end when Sam faced Amelia in the club the last seconds of the episode. What will happen with Dean and Sam now? Will they be able to work through this and fix the bond between them? And what will Sam say to Amelia, will he try to get her back?
In Citizen Fang, Sam hears from Martin, the half-crazy hunter Sam has asked to watch over Benny. Martin reports about a vampire kill in the city that Benny lives in. Martin and Sam are convinced of the fact that Benny is the murderer. Dean on the other hand, stands up for Benny. He tells Sam that he has a history with Benny and owns Benny a lot. Dean says that he trust Benny since he has never let him down. Sam gets really hurt when Dean says these things, since he kind of implies that he do not trust Sam but he do trust the vampire after all these years! Dean choses Benny over Sam and tells Sam that if he ever go after Benny, he would be lucky if he comes out alive.
In order to get Sam out-of-the-way, he sends Sam a text message that Sam believes comes from Amelia. The text message says “Sam I need you. Come quick”. Sam leaves quickly to go see Amelia. When he arrives at her place, he founds out that she is safe at her home with Don. Sam then later finds out that Dean sent the message. Dean also tells him that Benny killed Martin. Sam hang up the phone without letting Dean explain anything. When Sam is leaving the bar he is at, he meets Amelia. She had seen him outside her house.
I thought this episode was very good (except the lack of Cas)! 😉 Dean finally made the decision between Sam and Benny that we have waited for. Because it was obvious, seeing how sceptical Sam was towards Benny, that it would not work out between the three of them. I just never thought that Dean would choose Benny instead of Sam. This shows how that year they were alone really had an effect on them. Now the brothers are on their own again, but I have seen in the promo for the next episode that they will be working together again. But it seems like Cas is forcing them to work together. So maybe it will take a while for them to sort out things between them. I just do not believe that things will work out between them if they do not sit down and talk about everything that happened that year off.
I’m glad that Benny ended up as the good guy and that he was not responsible for the killings, but still, it is not sure that he will continue in the same direction. We may have a new Ruby, and it is true in the sense that he has brought the brothers a part.
In this episode it was confirmed that Amelia is real, and so Don. I just believe that there are more to her than we have seen in Sam’s flashbacks…or maybe it is not something with her. Maybe he just make these flashbacks extra bright to close out the bad things that may have happened in the three months before he meet her.
Now we have to wait 6 weeks until the next episode which are called Don’t Stop Believing and airs 16th of January. From what I have seen from the promo the episode will be focused on Cas. Yay!!! Not until then will we get answers to our questions regarding what will happen between Sam and Amelia, and Sam and Dean of course. Until then I wish all Supernatural fans, directors, producers, actors etc a Very Merry Christmas.
