Season 12's best  episode yet isn't perfect, but well-done, with an excellent swan song performance by Rick Springfield.

Vince/Lucifer (Rick Springfield) talks about his abandonment issues.

“Lucifer was bad enough when he had a plan, a motive. Now he’s just having fun.”
Sam Winchester

When we last saw Lucifer (Rick Springfield), his body was rapidly decaying as Rowena (Ruth Connell) banished him to “the bottom of the bloody ocean”. So you might be wondering just how he could be the center of this week’s episode? As it turns out, all it takes is a devil-worshiping teen (Jeff Evans Todd) and a “Lucifer feather” purchased off of the Internet. Lucifer instantly appears in the teen’s basement, and snaps the necks of his devotees before revealing that these feathers have the power to heal him, but only for a little while

A lot of  family drama, and a little demon action, comprise this mostly stand-alone episode.

Billie (Lisa Barry) offers to take Mary back to heaven.

“Was that why you spent the entire ride up here telling me in extreme, excruciating detail how you killed Hitler, but you neglected to mention the fact that your mom is back from the dead?”
—Jody Mills

Tonight’s episode of Supernatural featured two characters from the show’s past and a few new additions that we might see again in the future, but the plot was wrapped up so speedily that the whole thing just seemed like a missed opportunity. All in all, it continued season 12’s pattern of great character development and an interesting season-wide arc, but with half-baked, quickly resolved weekly plots.

An average, stand-alone  episode leaves us wondering about the future of season 12.
A resurrected Hitler is thrilled by
the possibilities of Twitter to gather new followers.

Supernatural has an illustrious history of weekly monsters, but this week’s episode dealt with an especially unusual villain: Adolf Hitler. It leads to the question of whether or not imagining an actual person—particularly one who caused as much death and damage as Hitler—as a horror fantasy is or isn’t in bad taste. Despite the gore and violence that usually comes with horror movies and shows, there’s a certain lightness that comes with the adult realization that imaginary creatures such as vampires, ghosts, werewolves, zombies, and the like don’t actually exist.

Horror movies about Hitler and Nazis, however, aren’t unusual (ranging from the laughably ridiculous They Saved Hitler’s Brain to more recent fare like Dead Snow), and many horror characters are loosely based on actual, often tragic events (such as how Dracula was inspired by the bloody war exploits and reign of Vlad the Impaler, or how the bacteria-related death of an archaeologist led to the idea of The Mummy‘s ancient Egyptian curses.) Regardless, given Supernatural‘s history of mashing up pop culture, ancient myths, religious lore, and just plain ridiculousness, no one should really be shocked by “The One You’ve Been Waiting For”.

The show gets  some serious girl power, and possibly loses two early fan favorites.

“It’s been months, months! since we tried to kill each other.”
—Crowley

Supernatural, which began as a show about two brothers devoted to “saving people, hunting things”, has grown to be quite the ensemble piece, with a frequently changing roster of angels, demons, supernatural entities, friends, and family members rounding out the cast. Tonight’s episode, however, hearkened back to the beginning, with most of the action focusing on one character, Mary Winchester (Samantha Smith).
