The boys are back! Post your thoughts on the winter premiere. Click HERE for my full recap or keep reading for my quick thoughts.
True to form, the mid-season premiere wrapped up the cliffhanger while also introducing some major storyline elements for the second half of season 12.
Let’s start with my favorite, the British Men of Letters. Mick’s proposal certainly seems kind of reasonable and their resources are very impressive. I’m curious to see how Mary agreeing to work for the BMOL pans out, especially whether or not she tells her boys. The only real problem is that Mr. Ketch’s solution to every problem is a murder spree. I know it’s wrong, but it really is the only way for Sam and Dean to be free that makes any sense.
Then there’s Billie. When will the Winchesters learn that making a deal is NEVER a good idea? I loved the twist because I completely fell for it. I thought Mary would sacrifice herself, because that’s what Winchesters do, but Cas stepping in to kill Billie was a shock. The bigger question is: What next?
She warned that breaking a deal has “cosmic” consequences and if killing the being you make the deal with fixes everything, this entire show wouldn’t exist. Killing Billie is definitely going to bring something bad and I can’t wait to see what those consequences are. But for now, I can’t be mad at Cas because that was an awesome speech about his love for the Winchesters.
