The Nerdy Girl Express writers and twins Stacy and Tracy Miller are back for Season 13 for The Miller Twins Talk Supernatural. They will share their thoughts on heroic Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) as well as other characters on The CW’s longest running show.
This article contains spoilers so if you haven’t seen the episode “Lost and Found” please do not continue reading.
Supernatural Season 13 premiere continues where the Season 12 finale left off: Sam is shocked to see a full grown Jack. Jack immediately greets the younger Winchester brother as “Father.” Sam is remarkably calm given the circumstances. However, when Dean meets the Devil’s spawn he fires his gun.
Angered, Jack releases enough power to fling the Winchesters at the wall.
Titled “Lost and Found,” the premiere gave viewers both the loss and set the stage for some of the potential discoveries Sam and Dean might face as the season progresses. The brothers are no strangers to loss. Yet, with Mary, Castiel and Crowley gone, their allies have disappeared. Grief, though, must take a back burner to the pressing concern. A nude Jack is roaming around town.
Series newcomer Alexander Calvert is tasked with leading viewers on the initial path of discovery for his character. The build up for much of the later part of Season 12 when the Nephilim plot came to the forefront involved the half human, half angel being all powerful and that humanity would be at its mercy. However, what we saw tonight with Jack was that his advanced growth didn’t mask an almost childlike innocence. Wearing clothes and eating candy were new adventures for him. In addition, Jack wasn’t able to control his burgeoning powers so his confusion is heightened. What he isn’t confused about is his quest to find Castiel who he has apparently formulated a bond with via his communication with his mother Kelly while in the womb. Jack explained to Sam that Castiel is his father as well as his protector. Further, Jack’s incredible command of the English language is also courtesy of his mother while his accelerated growth is a means of protecting himself from the forces working against him.
Sam and Dean have different approaches about Jack. Sam sees Jack as a kid and I think Sam is more than willing to stand in loco parentis as a benefactor to protect and help Jack perhaps understand his powers and use them for good. We know that Jack caused the time and space rift that created the alternate universe so Sam’s rationale appears to be that Jack may be instrumental getting Mary back.
In contrast, Dean seems to be less willing to subscribe to a nurture theory. Dean views Jack as a monster, evil by virtue of Jack’s pedigree as Satan’s spawn. I suspect that this fundamental difference in outlook will be a continuing source of contention for the brothers.
The premiere also saw Dean seeking for divine intervention by praying to Chuck to bring back Mary, Castiel and Crowley. This is a big step for Dean who has always been leery where faith is concerned.
“Lost and Found” only gave us a brief glimpse of the apocalyptic world. We saw Mary trying to flee Lucifer. Rather than kill her, Lucifer menacingly tells her that he needs her.
The Season 13 Premiere episode of Supernatural titled “Lost and Found” saw Lucifer’s son Jack (Alexander Calvert) adjusting to life and life on Earth. His first meeting with Sam and Dean doesn’t go well. After greeting Sam as “Father” Jack’s greeting from Dean is the be pumped with bullets. Yes, Dean resorts to his go-to: Shoot first, don’t ask questions later! This pisses Jack off and he uses some sort of sonic yell (like Arrow’s Black Canary). This suspends the brothers in mid-air for a few seconds before flinging them against the wall. Then, Jack makes his getaway (sans clothes). He finds himself at a pirate themed food joint where he continues his search for his father. But a naked guy appearing on the joint’s camera is enough for the owner’s son Clark (Rob Raco) to call his mother, who just happens to be the sheriff. Although confused as to what’s happening to him, Jack is very articulate in speaking and understanding English. He seems to have a simple child-like quality reminiscent of the early Season 4 Castiel (Misha Collins). But unfortunately, the loud voices on Angel radio and sudden confrontations frighten him; causing Jack’s powers to go wonky.
