I will say it was good to have at least a little break from the whole Amara/Casifer/Angels/Whatever-Else-You-W
We see a pair of brothers in 1989, who seem kind of like Sam & Dean in a way, although the oldest one gets killed by something mysterious. It was pretty heartbreaking when the younger one, Jesse, finds the remains of his brother in the lair. You could tell how much his brother meant to him, especially when he goes nuts on the older dude whose daughter had been involved & he hadn't told anyone about it. Meanwhile Dean & the other guy (sorry, I'm terrible with names) are talking about revenge & how it changes people. Dean seems pretty gung-ho about revenge.
So it seems that Sam might have dabbled with dope in college? Maybe it was oregano? Lol, Dean & his teasing...
Interesting how in the end the boys consider having those guys join them in the fight with Amara, but when they actually talk to them, Dean says they're good. I'm guessing that when they told our boys they were getting out of the hunting life, they didn't want to spoil it for them. So I guess they're in this fight alone...or are they? Maybe they will have help in some fashion. I won't say anymore so as not to spoil.
Next week's looks pretty intense, at least from the promo. We'll see, I guess.
