Supernatural My Heart Will Go On S06E17 (CW)

Supernatural Season 6 title card

Supernatural tells the story of Sam and Dean, who are hunters. They hunt demons. This is because their mom was killed by a demon. This season, the boys discover more about their past. In the last season finale, Dean was sent straight to hell by Lilith. He had sold his soul to save Sam.

The plot of the series has evolved over time, beginning initially with the Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, looking for their father throughout most of season one. Once they find him, the show becomes about killing Azazel, the yellow-eyed demon responsible for the death of their mother. This is accomplished, but not until after Azazel’s plans are completed and a door to Hell is opened, although only momentarily, releasing a horde of demons into the world. This event also sees the death of Sam, who is subsequently resurrected by Dean selling his soul at the end of season two. In the third season, the plot of the show focuses on trying to save Dean from his deal. Along the way, they meet a demon named Ruby, who has an interest in Sam and claims to be able to help save Dean, as well as Bela Talbot, an “acquirer” and seller of occult objects who is constantly a thorn in their side. The brothers eventually manage to track down the demon who holds Dean’s contract, a powerhouse named Lilith who also wants Sam dead. However, Sam and Ruby ultimately fail to save Dean, who is killed and sent to Hell. Season four begins with Dean, miraculously returning from Hell, awakening dazed and confused in a grave. He was apparently rescued by a supposed angel named Castiel on orders from God. Sam on the other hand, has further developed his abilities with the help of Ruby during the months that Dean has been dead. It is soon revealed that Dean was revived to help stop Lilith’s plan of breaking the 66 seals, which would let Lucifer walk free once again. As the series continues, Dean learns of Sam’s newfound ability to excercise demons using his psychic abilities. They have a heated argument, where Dean confesses to Sam: “Cas told me, if I dont stop you, he will. That means God does not want you doing what you are doing Sammy.” [From wiki]

I don’t really remember what made me stop watching this show, but a friend was extolling its virtues and I watched the fourth season premiere with her. Actually, I do remember. I really got tired of the repetitiveness of the episodes. This seems to have changed drastically since the last few seasons though. Supernatural has matured into a really good show, with its own flavor and great plots. The plot for season 4 is really good and I’m glad to see God involved.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

One of the Three Fates isn’t happy with what the boys have been doing. Also, Cass is on her shitlist. What will happen in this episode? It involves the Titanic and Céline Dion. I thought that it was a great line, however Atropos didn’t think so.

In Chester, PA, some guy gets killed. It looks like an improbable accident.

The boys are worried about Bobby, who has been drinking a lot and not sleeping. Sam wants to get him out on a job. Three people were killed in Chester, PA. The boys drive off in a Mustang. Ellen arrives.

All of the people were blood relatives. Sam finds gold in the garage.

Accidents don’t just happen accidentally.

One asshat in a shiny suit.

We see that the deaths are provoked by some girl who can stop time and manipulate the scene to make the accidents happen. The girl has some book with names inscribed in it. It’s got a bookmark that’s made out of golden strands.

Dean talks with Ellen. She says that there have been about 75 deaths like this all over the country. They all have golden threads at the scene. The families all came over to the US on the same boat in 1912. It was called the Titanic. For some reason, none of them know about the Titanic. The ship almost hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage. The first mate spotted it just in time. It’s IP Freeley. They see a photo of him and it’s Balthazar. They invoke him. He says that he saved the Titanic. He says that he did so because he hated the movie. Also, he hated Céline Dion. The girl is a reaper?

Balthazar says that the small details have changed. They don’t drive an Impala. The boys don’t even know what an Impala is and of course, Ellen and Jo are alive. There are 50,000 people who are alive who shouldn’t be. Bobby says that it has to do with the Three Fates. Atropos, to be more precise. She who cuts the threads of life.

They surveil one of the Russos and try to save him, but Atropos has cast her die and he dies. Sam sees her. He wants to go talk with her, but she stops the hands of time and puts on the gas. Cass saves them from immolation. They are in Russia. Cass says that she is pissed because they averted the Apocalypse. She won’t stop until they are dead. Cass says that they have to kill her. Balthazar has got a weapon that will work against her. Cass says that they will have to tempt fate. They do so and Castiel draws out Atropos. I don’t like how they are making the Three Fates part of the Christian mythos. Atropos is from the Greek pantheon. Atropos knows that Cass sent Balthazar back into the past to unsink the Titanic. It created 50,000 souls for them. Atropos says that if she dies, her two sisters Clotho and Lachesis will come after him. Cass makes Balthazar stop from killing Atropos. Balthazar goes back to sink the Titanic.

Sam and Dean wake up in the Impala. Céline Dion is playing on the radio. Cass arrives. He says that it wasn’t a dream, it happened for real. I don’t know why Cass is wearing his tie on backwards. Cass wanted them to remember. Cass doesn’t tell them that he sent Balthazar back in time.
