I enjoyed the episode and kept wondering how those entities were being created. I never guessed what was creating them.
I thought the girl was being a typical social media fan when she was recording, but Sam explained it was a teaching tool. I hope the other students learned it is not a good idea for an unseasoned hunter to chase a ghoul alone. It was not a ghoul, but it was a much more powerful supernatural. I was puzzled by the Djinn saying Michael enhanced him and others to get to Dean and his family. Really? I did not think Michael was scared of the Winchesters. It was good hearing Dean is not to be harmed.
Did you enjoy the way Dean made sure the Djinn was extinguished? I loved that scene.
Sam handled everything very well on three hours of sleep, including grumpy Bobby's cruel remarks. I did like hearing "idgit" though. Sam's hair looked beautiful.
I did not like some things that happened. When Dean walked into the shack, Bobby should have been his back-up, but Bobby walked away without saying anything. I know Dean can handle a situation, but it is different when you think your ally is right behind you.
When the daughter got scared and started to run, I did not appreciate her falling down after a few steps. That is a worn-out cliche. I would have preferred seeing her run down the steps (and into Dean's arms).
I would like to thank the director for not having Mary and Bobby lock lips on the screen.

SoCal, Please stay safe and be careful
Anti, I loved what you said about Mary and Bobby, I laughed when I read that, and I agree, I do not want to see them kiss, for any reason. and I am glad they are going away for a while, I don't care about Bobby who is kind of a hypocrite about Sam. Bobby went out in the night with no flashlight or weapon just wandering around and yet he complains about Sam and if he is up to the task. I still don't understand why Mary finds it easier to stay away from the boys as opposed to idk, spending time with them??? I also didn't like how Sasha fell so easily, really?? it is a cliché for that to happen.
I don't understand why everyone wants to be a hunter, nor do I understand why Maggie is allowed to be out by herself, she knows next to nothing and is out hunting ghouls by herself, come on, all she needed was a sign around her neck that said Fresh Meat. I keep waiting to see her be killed off, or some of the hunters in the bunker.
Did anyone else find it odd that there was a groundskeeper, yet in the beginning of the episode the front of the house was overgrown with weeds? and what was his deal anyway?, he seemed odd, and I wonder if he and the djin nurse were in it together and we see him further down the road. I kind of feel for Dean who seems to be trying, yet keeps being reminded of what Michael has done, I am hoping we see some sort of showdown between these two later on in the season. I think Dean needs to really talk about what happened, maybe he could feel better about it. I did like the part where he confronts the nurse and the nurse really thought it was Michael, and I wonder what did he see when he tried to read Dean's mind? he looked horrified. The way Dean killed the nurse reminded me of an older episode where Dean emptied his gun into another djin, now that I remember. Ask Jeeves, I think it was s9, Dean was cold in that one where he killed the monster.
Poor Sam, trying to hold it all together, the hunters and looking for Michael, he needs some help and fast. I get that these "hunters" are there and he is teaching them, but there is supposed to be a larger hunter network, and he could send off a few to work with others so he doesn't have so much on him.
