Supernatural Season 14 brings in the Wayward Sisters connection, bringing some sort of conclusion to that storyline that started. Meanwhile, Castiel and Jack help a young girl hexed by a witch.

Supernatural Season 14, Episode 3 was clearly going to be focused on Dean coming back into the fold. We knew he’d search for answers to everything he did, which points him towards the scar on his arm. Just what attacked him?

Whatever it was is a connection to Wayward Sisters, bringing some sort of closure to the storyline. There were also some beautiful single comments from Jody and Jack about love and family.

I’m going to split this recap into two separate storylines. The Winchestesr and Jody will take up the first part and then you can read all about Castiel and Jack’s on the second slide.

Who caused the scar?

More from Supernatural

Initially, we start with Castiel and Jack seeing that Dean is back, but it quickly gets onto the case. When Dean finds a scar on his arm, he gets Castiel to open some of his memories and sees himself being stabbed in the arm with a forked sword. However, that’s not all.

The thing that stabbed him was the same thing from The Bad Place. It means a call to Jody Mills, who has been working on a case with deaths from a similar weapon. Suddenly, Michael!Dean’s storyline connects to the Wayward Sisters. That’s fitting to say the Wayward Sisters storylines last season started with Patience’s introduction in Episode 3.

Jody doesn’t want to tell Claire about the creature, wanting to figure out what they’re dealing with first. This was the creature that killed Kaia, after all.

While out searching for anything that could have attacked, Sam, Dean, and Jody see the severed heads. They’re all vampires and Jody is sure they’re the heads that belong to the bodies. The problem is there was never a reaction to silver and dead man’s blood, so she was sure she was dealing with human victims.

The truth about Kaia

The creature from The Bad Place attacks and reveals herself to be Kaia. Sam has a theory that Michael had sent the vampires to Sioux Falls to hunt Kaia, but that doesn’t stop Dean from needing to find her and stop her.

Throughout the hunt, Jody ignores a call from Claire. She’d promised to loop Claire into any monster cases but can’t do it with this one. There’s a perfect mention of Claire’s love for Kaia.

It’s not hard for Dean to eventually track Kaia down and knock her out. This is the chance to get some answers, and it turns out that this Kaia is not their Kaia (not that we didn’t know that). Kaia’s death was an accident and she actually wanted to kill “the blonde.” In other words, Claire.

Despite knowing Dean is no longer Michael, Kaia is scared. There are more monsters out there after her, sent by Michael.

Dean doesn’t care about that. He wants the spear, knowing it’s the only thing that will kill Michael. And he’s willing to beat and torture her to get answers.

Kaia brings up the time Dean held the gun at the other Kaia’s head, finally pulling him up for his actions. We also find out that the fight between Kaia and Michael!Dean was just because Michael!Dean wanted Kaia’s spear. When she refused to hand it over, they fought.

The fight starts

Of course, the vampires show up for kaia and the Winchesters get into the fight. Just as it looks like the super-vamps will win, Dean shoots at the chair leg holding Kaia and lets her free, hoping she’ll help. She runs off through the window and it looks like away from the fight, but Kaia returns with her spear and takes out all the super-vamps.

Kaia makes it clear that she came back for Jody and Sam, but never Dean. After that, she leaves, spear in hand.

With all said and done, Jody knows that she has to tell kaia the full truth. She also shares the fear has for her three hunter girls–that fear of losing them.

Castiel attempts to save the hexed girl

While the Winchesters work that case, there’s another problem in the area. A witch has attacked and now a young girl has been hexed with an aging spell. Castiel can’t fix it right away, so he remains behind to find a solution.

After Dean makes it clear that he’s not strong enough to take on this case, Jack decides to take off. However, he’s stopped when he hears Castiel talking to one of the hunters (who seems to be a witch at this point) that brought the hexed girl back. Hearing about the girl’s plight, Jack decides to stay but Castiel is suspicious.

When the girl wakes from her sleep, she asks if Castiel is Jack’s dad. There’s a touching moment when he says “one of them” and you know it’s going to be one of the best lines from the episode. However, the conversation quickly moves onto the girl’s storyline of running away and meeting the witch. There’s a sense of a Hansel and Gretel/Evil Queen storyline mixed into this Sleeping Beauty tale that Jack connects the young girl to.

Castiel and the witch-hunter believe they have a way to save the girl. It doesn’t work but instead, makes the he speed up. Jack is heartbroken (and you can see why Robert Berens said “aww, Jack” while writing this episode) and annoyed that he doesn’t have his powers to save her.

Jack figures out the solution

Suddenly, Jack gets an idea. He needs the witch. Jack has figured out that it’s the necklace that has been stealing the youth and is the curse. The curse worked harder to take the girl’s youth because there was a witch killing bullet still in the witch. Once Jack breaks the necklace, the girl’s life force is returned to her and she wakes up.

In the end, Cass apologizes for not being there for Jack and shares how proud he is. With complements towards Jack’s mind and heart of a hunter, Cass offers the hance for him and Jack to head off on a hunting trip together. While Jack is happy, he starts coughing and brushes it off as his first cold, but Jack is clearly concerned it’s something more.

Sure enough, he grabs a tissue and coughs up blood. There are more bloddy tissues in the trash can. What is happening to our nougat-baby Jack?

At the very end, Dean admits that he just wants to get to the point where he kills Michael at the end. Supernatural doesn’t work like that. Dean admits that he does remember something from his time possessed: he was drowning and couldn’t get air.
