Supernatural Season 15, Episode 4 brought us a monster-of-the-week episode for the Winchesters, while sharing more on God. Here are the biggest questions.
I’m still not 100% sure how to feel after Supernatural Season 15, Episode 4. It’s not that it was a bad episode, but that I was left feeling so conflicted in emotions. I hurt for Sammy, feel angry for Becky, and just really dislike Chuck.
However, one thing “Atomic Monsters” did deliver on was the action. We got a glimpse of another world, a look at what’s to come, and the feelings of our poor Sam Winchester.
While delivering on action and feelings, we also got plenty of questions. Here are my biggest questions after the episode.
5. Since when was Sam a vegetarian?
Let’s start with a simple question. Sam made a point about not eating bacon, almost suggesting that he’s a vegetarian. If he is, this is something new. We’ve seen him eat meat before.
It could be that Sam won’t eat bacon. He’s routinely said that it’s bad for the heart. But then, he properly wouldn’t eat a vegetarian bacon (even if the bacon was that and not real bacon as Dean ended up making!) because it would still be cooked in a load of fat.
Something just didn’t feel right about this moment. It was funny and a great way to show that Dean is concerned about his brother, but still brought up this question.
4. What exactly happened to Becky and her family?
I felt conflicted about Becky. This is a character I’ve never really liked, but I appreciated that she (and more like the writers) admitted that everything with Sam in Season 7 was extremely icky and wrong. During this episode, I started to like her.

I loved that she’d grown as a person and had a family of her own. And that’s why when her husband and kids were Thanos-snapped away, I felt sorry for Becky. But God didn’t end there. He Thanos-snapped Becky away, too.
So, what’s happened to them? God said he didn’t kill them, but that they’d just gone away. Will Billie be able to find them?

3. What’s going on with God?
God looked like he wanted to change, like he wanted to get his friendship with the Winchesters back on track. However, the end of the episode showed s that he’s still just as evil as he seemed at the end of Season 14.
What is going on with the character? Is it bad writing? Probably not. It seems more like Old Testament God instead of the New Testament version. It’s clear that he’s done this before, and now it’s time to do it again.
2. Will Dean be able to help Sam?
Sam is struggling. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work that out. In fact, Dean knows that his brother is struggling with the grief and loss.
The question is whether Dean is even going to be able to help his brother. Both Winchesters have a habit of shutting down their feelings. Sam did open up about them at the end of Supernatural Season 15, Episode 4, but it wasn’t everything he’s struggling with. He didn’t talk about the alternate world.
Dean can’t help with only half the information. How long will it be for Dean to open up about everything?
1. Why is Sam seeing alternate worlds?
It was very quickly clear that Sam was having a dream of an alternate world. It was one where Sam drank so much demon blood that he became a demon himself. At least, that’s something I’m guessing. There is a chance that this is a world where Sam took on the Mark of Cain and became a demon after death.
Either way, Sam wasn’t himself. It wasn’t that part that brought the questions, though. It was Sam waking up from the “nightmare.” I get the feeling this wasn’t a nightmare. He was actually seeing this world play out.
It must have something to do with that bullet wound. He has a connection to God. Since God knows how all the worlds ended, surely that means Sam knows. Could it be a clue to killing God?
