Supernatural - Frontierland

Great episode!

Sam, Dean & Bobby go into the Campbell's secret library looking for something about the Mother of All.  They stumble across a book that says the ashes of a Phoenix can hurt her.  So then they start looking for information about a Phoenix.  Dean stumbles across the journal of Samuel Colt and in it he says that he killed a Phoenix.  So they have a time and place on where to get Phoenix ashes.  Dean suggests they go back in time and call upon Castiel.

Castiel agrees to do it but he can only let them stay for 24 hours since anything longer than that will be hard to retrieve them.  So Dean is excited because he loves the old west and he goes shopping.  Once there they witness a hanging.  The man getting hung threatens the people hanging him and then dies.  But he's not really dead and comes back to kill those responsible for his death.

Sam goes to find Samuel Colt to get him to kill the Phoenix and Dean stays back to entrap the Phoenix, which is the guy that was hung.  He gets one of the guys he's after and uses him as bait in the jail.  The Phoenix comes but iron hurts him so he shoots the guy in the jail cell and chases after Dean.

Sam finds Colt and after convincing him that he is from the future by showing him his phone, he lets him take the Colt since he's retired.  Sam comes back just in time while Dean is being chased and a showdown happens and Dean kills him.  Just as he's about to gather the dust they get zapped back to the present.

Castiel gets wounded by his Lieutenant when she confronts him on the things he's doing to win the war.  Which apparently are not good things.  He kills her and then makes it back to Bobby's.  He says he can't bring Sam and Dean back because he's still weak but if he can touch Bobby's soul he can regenerate faster.  So that's what he does and it's not pleasant for Bobby.

All hope seems lost when the boys get back without the ash but there's a knock on the door.  It's a package for Sam Winchester from Samuel Colt.  It's the Phoenix ash and he apparently got the address from Sam's phone.  So now they have something to hurt the Mother with.

Book in a Series - The Wolves of Mercy Falls

Don't you hate it when you are reading a book and it's part of a book series and you have to wait FOREVER for the next book to come out.  Then you get the next book and you can't remember where it left off?  Well I'm going to summarize a book in a series that I've read so that when I get the next book I can look at my summary and know what happened.  Warning, the following contains spoilers!

The Wolves of Mercy Falls
Linger - Maggie Stiefvater
Linger

Forever - 07/12/11

Sam is human and has remained human throughout the winter due to Grace and Isabel giving him meningitis.  There are new werewolves that were made by Beck and only two come back and that is Cole and Victor.  Victor ends up dying and Cole being the son of a scientist figures out that there was something in Victor's brain that killed him.  

Grace and Sam are caught in bed together by her parents and they forbid her to see him.  Sam had been spending the nights since he was so lonely.  Of course they do not stay away from each other.  She has not been feeling well and gets hospitalized.

Isabel and Cole start spending a lot of time together.  She finds out he used to be a rock star.  With the help of Cole, Sam learns that Grace will die unless she is bitten again and turned into a wolf and that the "cure" will only last 10 years and that's why life expectancy for when they are permanently wolves is only that long.  He said it had to do with the brain and when they stop changing they have 10 years.  So basically Sam only has 10 years to live.  So Grace gets bitten and turned into a wolf and the book ends that way.

So it looks like the new book will deal with finding a permanent cure.

Supernatural - My Heart Will Go On

Supernatural was back with a new episode.  I liked it!

We start out with the boys watching Bobby drink and they finally go to say something and he kicks them out.  They see a potential job in a string of "accidents" and go and investigate.  Oh and Ellen is married to Bobby, Jo is alive and the boys drive a Mustang!  But everything is normal to them and they go like nothing is wrong.  First they figure the people being killed are all related but then someone dies that is not related.  They talk to Ellen and then figure out the connection between all of them is that their family all came to America on the same boat, The Titanic.  No one has ever heard of it and so Sam investigates.  There was a near miss where they nearly hit an iceberg but someone named I.P. Freely spotted it in time.  They find a picture of the crew and it's Balthazar that spotted it.  So they do a ritual and bring him and he says he hated the movie and that's why he did it.  He also tells them that because of it certain things got changed, no Impalas and Ellen and Jo are alive.  He leaves and they find out someone is killing them.  They try to save a guy and he is hit by a bus and they see a woman nearby.  Sam says she looks like a Librarian and Dean asks "Your kind of Librarian or my kind?"  to which Sam replies "Well she had clothes on."  They go to investigate and nearly get killed by her but are saved just in time by Castiel.  He tells them that it's Fate and they need to "tempt Fate" and kill her and that Balthazar has the weapon to do it.  So they walk around and there are several near misses and finally almost get killed by something falling off the roof.  Time stops and Castiel talks to Fate.  She tells him that because the Apocalypse never happened she has no job and there's no one in Heaven to tell her what to do.  So she was trying to correct things when Balthazar unsunk the Titanic.  She asks Cas if it is about the souls and how he needs more souls for his war.  She says if he kills her she has 2 more sisters that are worse than her and they will Target Sam & Dean.  So he agrees to sink the Titanic and put everything right so Sam and Dean can be safe.  They wake up in the Impala and both think they've had the same dream.  Castiel tells them he wanted them to remember everything.


Next week, they will travel back in time to the old west and meet the maker of the Colt.

Ghost Town (Morganville Vampires, Book 9)

Claire is being punished for killing a vampire by making her repair the borders that were put up to prevent people from leaving Morganville.  She is required to work without any sleep until it is fixed.  She manages to fix it and Myrnin puts his touches on it and it causes everyone in Morganville to forget the last 3 years.  That includes both humans and vampires.

Claire goes home and realizes that Michael does not remember her or that he is a vampire.  Her dad is hospitalized and her parents are given special permission to leave Morganville for good.

Oliver bites Amelie and takes control of Morganville.  So she is basically alone and when she tries to fix the machine, she can't because Myrnin has gone insane and can't remember her.  Then she goes to Amelie and sees that she's bitten Olivier to take control back and is not herself.

Claire teams up with Shane (who can't remember her) and their friends and also Frank (Shane's dad).  In the end, Frank blows up the machine and dies himself.  Then we see that Myrnin has fixed the machine and used Frank's brain for it because the only way it will work properly is with a brain in it.

Earth's Children Series

I read the first book in the series, The Clan of the Cave bear by Jean M. Auel while I was in college.  My mother-in-law had been telling me to read it and when I finally did I loved it.  I then read the rest of the books that were out and the sixth and final book has just come out.  I just got it and only just started.  So glad to finally have a conclusion to the series.  The books follow a girl named Ayla (blonde haired, blue eyed) from the time she is 5 years old until she is an adult.  The books take place 30,000 years ago.  There is an earthquake and her parents die and she is left wandering and she if found by a clan of Neanderthals.  She is adopted into this new clan and must learn to adapt.
