Jack! He is not evil and I refuse to look at him as the Big Bad. He is a two-year old who has been manipulated. However, his sense of right and wrong is definitely on the fritz.
I enjoyed this episode and was anxiously waiting to see what would happen next. I liked the special effects when Jack turned the man to a pillar of salt. The worms devouring the minister was well done. It was weird that Jack looked beatific when he was doing that stuff and he really thought he was doing good and making the world better. I was not sure Jack could actually create angels. The angel people looked pleased following their transition.
Castiel really has Jack's back and I hope Jack believes Cas is on his side. Otherwise, there could be a tragic ending. I was glad Cas did not kill angel Ermeriel(?). I think it was awfully bold of Cas to kill the other angel though.
The memorial for Mary was nice, but it strikes me as weird that it is her face in the photographs of Mary holding the children. I was proud of the way Dean spoke during the service, especially because it was later obvious he was bitter and hurt. It was so emotional when Dean was sobbing, actually sobbing! That was touching. And Dean does believe Jack deserves to die.
I have to give a shout out to Bobby. He sounded like our old taciturn Bobby when he talked about Jack and Mary.

I read a comment somewhere that said they both loved and hated this episode, I am not sure I am that divided but there were parts I really liked and also was just done with.
I am holding my Mary comments so I don't offend anyone.
Can we PLEASE BE DONE WITH LUCIFER, the character is dead, gone, no more, I am tired of seeing him on my screen. Mark P is a great actor but let Lucifer go already.
Like you Anti, I don't think I can take it if they make Jack to be the big bad, if they do, then what was the point of bringing him back when he died earlier in the season, though they kind of did that in S12 when they almost killed Cas, and they really killed him at the end of S12. So he is not understanding exactly what he did and he was unable to fix it, I think he still has some of his soul because he knew what he did was wrong (killing Mary) and he worried about Sam and Dean and healed Sam and wanted Mary to tell him what he did was ok.
I am also a little confused why they have made Jack dumb, he was smart at the beginning of the season and now he seems as if he doesn't get simple things. He wants so bad to do good and it is never quite right, sound like anyone else we know??
While I understood Sam and Dean's grief, and how they both dealt with it, I don't know that locking Jack was up was the right way to go. It was heartbreaking both to see Dean and Sam trick Jack into the box, but even worse to see him panic when he realized he was alone. He won't be happy when he stats talking to them, and does anyone else think it might be Michael hiding out?? That shot of Dean alone in the woods crying would have been more impactful, if it would have lasted a little longer.
I am glad Cas is looking out for Jack and I am glad he is trying his best to make sure Jack is ok, though he should have gotten to the bunker faster and could have stopped them from what they did. I am scared for the finale and don't want to be.
