Optimism
Episode 6 season 14
airdate: November 15, 2018
directed by Richard Speight Jr.
written by Steve Yockey


Sam hunts something called a Musca with Apocalypse World Charlie while Dean hunts a zombie with Jack and stumbles across a necromancer in the process. Much is said about not being responsible for bad things that happen when you are inhabited by an archangel or just make a bad decision, and Sam tries to convince a jaded AW Charlie that humans are still essentially good.

  • Why did the Musca "go rogue" and leave his group of other monsters? Why was that one unable to mate?
  • Will Apocalypse World Charlie ever find peace with the life of a hunter?
  • Will Dean ever have "the talk" with Jack like he promised?
  • Will Dean actually trust Jack to go hunting more often?
  • Is Sam right about humanity not always taking the low road when things go badly?
  • Will Dean ever accept that he's not the youngest guy in the room anymore?
  • Has Apocalypse World Charlie really read "all" the books?

  • There are weird half-man, half-fly things called Muscas and they apparently have some kind of society where they bury their dead and walk around looking like grieving Victorian widows in black veils.
  • Jack is interested in sex.
  • Apocalypse World Charlie had a permanent partner who ran a cupcake bakery, but she was killed.
  • Apocalypse World Charlie is not that enamored of hunting even though she's good at it.
  • Sam, somehow, still has a positive view of humanity and does not automatically think the worst of people.
  • Necromancers would rather date reanimated dead guys than a living person.
  • Jack is definitely not okay health-wise.
  • Jack is a rather resourceful hunter and not bad at playing different roles (pretending to be interested in Harper the librarian) to get information.
  • Jack puts a ton of sugar on his cereal since things taste weird to him after losing his Grace.
  • Sam has "all the books" in the bunker.
  • Dean seems to have made some kind of peace with Sam being the "leader" around the bunker, or at least the one who coordinates hunts because Dean tells Jack he needs to talk to Sam about Jack going out on more hunting trips, instead of just approving Jack's involvement himself without Sam's input.
  • Jack is not familiar with Mighty Mouse.
  • Dean is becoming truly proud of Jack and it's obvious he really cares about him.

  • Jack says "Christo" to see if Harper is a demon; a test that has not been used in a very long time on Supernatural.
  • Dean refers to Jack as "Mighty Mouse"; an 80's superhero-mouse cartoon.
  • The first Musca victim, one of Harper's suitors, walks down the street to "Stayin' Alive" from Saturday Night Fever; insinuating that he feels very confident (like John Travolta's character in that movie) when he thinks Harper has agreed to go on a date with him.
