‘Supernatural’ 13×13 Review: Devil´s Bargain

Gabriel makes his return in Supernatural’s “Devil’s Bargain” and we’re ready to bust through our screens and save the savvy, troublesome, and chatty archangel from the hands of Asmodeus. He shouldn’t be worried about Lucifer. He should be worried for fans.

Besides the return of Gabriel, we were introduced to Sister Jo, played by Danneel Ackles. (Whose name I had to look up over and over to make sure I didn’t misspell it.) Like every woman on this show she was a badass in her own right. She wants to be on top and she’ll do anything she has to be number #1 and stick it to those who thought she wouldn’t amount to anything.

Let’s dive into Supernatural’s “Devil’s Bargain”



Last we saw of Gabriel he was a “possible” vision by Metatron. I have “possible” in quotation marks because he wiggled his eyebrows at Castiel as if to say, “Wouldn’t you like to know,” to Cas’ question if he was really dead. Sweet summer child, Gabriel is never dead.

When I need someone to figure out how to die in style and have a backup plan just in case, it’s gonna be two people, Gabriel or Rowena. The latter is up to God knows what. Wait. Let my take that back. God isn’t anywhere to be found and he probably doesn’t care what his kids are doing right now because…he’s never been one to care and stick around after dropping off the kids at Earth, heaven, or hell camp.

Back to Gabriel. Asmodeus has probably undertaken some crazy measures to capture the archangel in the first place. Gabriel is the greatest trickster the world has ever seen and I’m having trouble understanding how the white suit wonder captured one of our favorite characters. But I am certain of one thing. If I were in the show I’d rain down hell on all who hurt Gabriel, especially because they sewed his mouth shut. 

No one can keep Gabriel quiet and they shouldn’t.

Get a Move On & Find Jack & Mary


I don’t know about you guys…but I’m getting a little tired of Ketch, Asmodeus, and the rest of the lot keeping the Winchesters away from their mother and Jack. It feels like Supernatural is just filling space because they have a full season order.

Well we’re ready.

We’re ready to explore what other worlds are out there, how Mary & Jack work together, and what Michael is going to do to get to the Winchesters world. The demon tablet is going to play a central role in this and hopefully, because I’d like to be entertained, will send them to some crazy world’s aka the Scooby Doo world.

The last thing a show wants is to bore their fans, and that’s what we’re on the cusp of. Boredom.

Sister Jo & Lucifer


The interactions between these two were highly erotic and cringe inducing. And it’s not because Sister Jo is Jensen Ackles wife. She’s acting and she can do whatever she damn well pleases and is allowed by the script.

It was the the music.

The music they played during their “sucking angel juice” moments had the same kind of music you’d expect in a sexy scene from Hercules: The Legendary Journeys starring Kevin Sorbo. Hell, this could also be the same music from a sexy scene from Xena: The Warrior Princess starring Lucy Lawless. All those scenes were cheesy back in the 90’s and any throw back to it now is cheesy as well.

Let’s not bring that music back. And here’s hoping in future sexy scenes, cuz again Danneel Ackles can do as she pleases, that they do away with the music. It’s already cringey enough watching the Prince of Darkness get his jollies off. So, why not avoid the sexy 90’s music…

Favorite moment from Supernatural‘s ´Devil´s Bargain´:

Castiel did what we’ve always wanted to do with Ketch. He shut him the hell up!
