We got the last Supernatural season premiere ever. Supernatural Season 15, Episode 1 delivered a wild ride of returning ghosts.
Whether you were ready for it, excited about it, or feeling a mixture of emotions, Supernatural Season 15 premiered with style. It’s the beginning of the end, and certainly delivered a twisty, turvy episode.
Picking up directly after the events of the Season 14 finale, we found ourselves in the cemetery with the Winchesters and Castiel facing off against the zombies. This wasn’t The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones, even though there were moments that felt like it. Sam quickly theorized that the spirits of Hell just found the closest body to jump possible.
But how would they get out of the mess they were in? After finding their way to a crypt, they soon had help by their side.
Alexander Calvert shows off his acting skills
If you thought there was nothing for Alexander Calvert with Jack being dead, you would be mistaken. He rose from the dead. Sort of.

A demon possessed our nougat-loving guy, quickly being nicknamed a Baby Crowley. And in a way, he is a lot like Crowley—and you certainly can’t tell whether you can trust him. This demon says he was one of those who would torture the souls and loved everything Dean did during his time in Hell, but it’s clear there’s more. How much can we trust?

Right now, it doesn’t really matter. He manages to expel the spirits from the bodies surrounding the crypt and gets everyone out. He even says he has a spell to confine the spirits.
Great, right? Now Team Free Will and the demon just need to get to the town all the spirits have headed to and evacuate it.
A few familiar spirits
On the way to the town, the Winchesters pull up to a car at the side of a road. It feels familiar to them, and they quickly confirm that it’s a Woman in White. Their Woman in White. And it wouldn’t be the final Supernatural premiere without a flashback to the pilot episode.
In the town, Bloody Mary and John Wayne Gacy are attacking and killing. And Bloody Mary doesn’t need to be summoned anymore.
The Winchesters get to the town, where they split off to help with evacuation, taking care of the spirits, and finding the ingredients for the spell to confine the current spirits. That means Sam and Castiel together (because Castiel refuses to be around Demon!Jack) and Dean with Demon!Jack, who needs a human heart.
Fortunately for Demon!Jack, the sheriff of the town is killed by the Woman in White. That gets Jack his fresh human heart and they start the spell. At the same time, Sam and Castiel save a mother and daughter from John Wayne Gacy and Bloody Mary, before having to deal with Lizzy Borden and another spirit.
With the spell complete, the barrier goes up around the town. Sam, Castiel, and the mother and daughter rush across the line just in time, with John Wayne Gacy earning a “shut up” from Sammy.
They’ve got work to do
With that taken care of, all the town is evacuated into the local high school. It’s only a matter of time before the real FBI show up and allow everyone to return to their homes. The Winchesters need to deal with these spirits before they can allow that to happen.
Meanwhile, the brothers have a discussion about free will. Does it exist? Does anything even matter anymore?
Sam surprises Dean, especially when they theorize that God has moved onto a new story and a new world. “Good,” Sam admits. Without God around, once they win, the world is just theirs. They certainly have work to do.
Odds and ends:
- Alexander Calvert was brilliant as Demon!Jack. He offered much-needed comedic relief.
- Dean and Castiel are certainly frosty with each other. That’s got to be addressed in the next episodes.
- When Castiel tried to heal the gunshot wound on Sam’s shoulder, there was some sort of powerful energy. There seemed like a flashforward of sorts, a premonition of something Sam would do because of this wound.
- All the doors in Hell opened, meaning the Cage is also open and Michael is likely looking for revenge.
