Post your thoughts on tonight’s episode, and be sure to enjoy it since SPN is taking a brief hiatus until March 20. Click HERE for my full recap or keep reading for my quick thoughts.
So this show just killed off Zeus and Prometheus. I feel like that should probably be a bigger deal than it was, but I also love that the show has reached a point where killing Zeus is just another Wednesday afternoon for Sam and Dean.
I liked all the Greek god stuff and the cute little jokes (the bird eating his liver, the fact that he fell off a mountain in Europe).
It also worked well to bring up the age-old issue of “Saving the world comes at a high cost,” whether it’s dying every day for giving fire to humanity or going to Hell for stopping the Apocalypse. The fact that Sam is finally realizing he can’t just hope he’ll make it through this time, especially since he’s spitting up lots of blood.
The most interesting thing, however, was Sam’s knowledge. He knew that Artemis and Prometheus were secret lovers, but he also mentioned that it was never written in any book and she never told anyone about it.
How did he know? I’m pretty sure that’s part of the bigger mystery. My current theory is that he’s becoming omniscient, so maybe completing the three trials will turn Sam into God. I feel like they need to bring back God at some point, especially since Zeus went on a rant about how Prometheus was to blame for people not believing in the Greek gods any more. It made me think that he’s jealous of the Judeo-Christian God with a capital G.
Any other theories on what’s happening to Sam and how he seems to know things no one should actually know?
Now it’s three weeks of hiatus, but at least Cas, Crowley and Meg are back on March 20.
