Recap: Supernatural Episode 6.14 – Mannequin 3: The Reckoning

We go back to Sam and he’s burning Rose’s bones. He’s rather clean from having dug up a body. *laugh* He strikes the match, holds it for a moment staring at the flame — much like we’ve seen Dean do a time or two — and drops it in. Then he calls Johnny and gives him the all-clear.

Sam: This is your chance at a new beginning. To not be a jackass.

Dean is driving back to New Jersey, his face tight with the pain of being without choices and of having your heart scooped out over and over. Memories of Lisa and Ben — with him, separate, good times and sad — are playing out in his expression and on our screens. The music was a little…interesting. It was like a mix of America and Guns ‘n Roses. I almost thought I should know it, but…I didn’t. The whole montage of memories and regret just compounded the fact that the one thing Dean has to hang onto is his brother.

It’s the only thing that’s carried him through his life; and it’s hard to just…let that go. Just release that and do something else. Sure, he did it for a year. When he thought Sam was dead.

I don’t know what this means for him and his ongoing story. I think they left it rather open-ended. Ben claiming that he and his mom were Dean’s family was the last we heard from them. And just because she’s dating doesn’t mean Lisa’s not in love with Dean. She as much said she knew what she wanted: him. But his life and his choices make it impossible for them to be together.

I would like to say that if she “really loved him” she’d have accepted him no matter what, but that’s just because I ache for my hero. I don’t think that’s realistic. I think how she’s reacting in light of the options he’s given her is realistic. But…I do have to say it also sucks because before the vampire incident, she was willing to wait as long as it took. Let him do his job and come back to her when he could. *sigh*

Okay, moving on.
