    I didn’t think it was a great episode. Thompson sucks and he panders with some sentimental hook.

    So a symbol defeated both the banshee and the soul eater. The Mark of Cain is a symbol.

    Lots of Sam dying foreshadowing this season.

    Dean and Amara kissing in a tree….

    I liked the episode I was so glad to see Bobby and Rufus being Grumpy Old Hunters.

    I liked the monster; I liked the ‘hunt’ and I liked the characters.

    1. Paula R. Stiles

      I liked the episode, too. It was a nice balance between the brothers and the MOTW was seriously creepy. And it was fun to see Bobby and Rufus again, which Bobby returns don’t always turn out to be.

      This week’s episode…not so much.
