What do Nazi’s and the Winchesters have in common? Oh wait that’s easy. The answer is the Supernatural…duh….. hahhaah. What is going on? The writers of Supernatural are not going to tie in Europe and Nazis? Well I guess let’s see what they have in mind.
A Nazi camp, a massive Supernatural being attacking and a man casting some kind of spell that consumes him, the room and a book he is trying to hide into a unnatural fire.
Back to present day and the boys have found the bunker the key is for. Entering they discover the hideout for the Men of Letters and oddly they have power, running water and a great space to hunker down in. Dean is digging the amenities the place has to offer while Sam is interested in the knowledge they can find.
After Dean returns from a trip to see Kevin, who hasn’t made much progress with the tablet, and Garth the boys agree that Cas isn’t answering any of the prayers and Sam has found out some of the information the Men of Letters had to share. He has learned of an initiative of Rabbi’s who fought against Necromancers during WWII and that the last of that initiative died two weeks prior when he spontaneously combusted. We witness this death after the Rabbi discovered a book at the library of Congress.
The brothers separate for the investigation and as Dean conducts interviews he feels followed and when he confronts the guy he is hit on making him feel very uncomfortable. (bwahahah I have to say that was one of the best scenes ever. Seeing Dean squirm like that….just made my night) However later when Sam discovers he is being followed and Dean arrives to assist him the boys are attacked by a golem, an animated clay figure that is created to go to war for the Rabbi’s, and the owner of this golem is Aaron the grandson of Rabbi Bass and the man who was following Dean.
Together they discover that the Rabbi’s were working against a group called the Thule who were doing experiments to reanimate their dead comrades and the Rabbi’s were trying to stop them and destroy the reanimated ones. Rabbi Bass had found the mysterious book, that had vanished on that day in 1944 when the golem had been sent into the Nazi camp, that held a roster of those that had been reanimated and he was killed by the Thule as they tried to obtain it.
While they are at the Library of Congress retrieving the book Sam is attacked by a Necromancer but protecting the book, he found where Rabbi Bass had hid it, he gets back to the group to warn them, but Aaron also gets shot with a dart. Telling the golem that they will die if they don’t get the guy Dean checks on Sammy and the golem retrieves the Necromancer killing him and saving Sam and Aaron.
It isn’t long before they learn that the golem is without a master really. Aaron’s grandfather called upon him but didn’t take control because he wanted Aaron to have him but Aaron had destroyed the manual when he was in college and needed rolling papers. (What who does that?)
Well then the guy from the beginning of the show arrives, and what he isn’t old or anything, and hunts the boys down. He really wants the book. He is able to stop the golem with a spell, because he isn’t controlled by anyone, and he and his men are able to disarm the Winchesters.
In typical form the bad guy spouts off his “evil” plans and thinking that Aaron is not a threat focuses more on the Winchesters. Aaron grabs a board and hits Nazi guy in the head allowing the Winchesters the distraction they needed to grab their weapons and save the day.
After they get rid of the bodies in their typical hunter way they offer to take the golem and store him for Aaron, but after observing Nazi guy and how he controlled the golem and realizing how important the legacy his grandfather has left him he decides to take control and carry on in memory of his grandfather.
The boys head back to the bunker where Sam starts to transcribe their experience with the Thule and the golem. Dean observes that Sam is taking on the role of the Men of Letters and actually sounds pleased he is doing so.
So this episode was okay. It wasn’t bad nor would I call it one of my favorites, but I did enjoy the undertone a lot and that is the fact that Sam is taking on a new role as a Men of Letters. I really like that new element of the show. I don’t really have a lot to say about this episode this week. I think I’m still in the wake of the marvelous episode of last week. I liked the element, as I said before, and I couldn’t help but laugh when Aaron was hitting on Dean making him nervous. It was some funny funny stuff.
Well until next week my Wayward family I leave you with this:
