Things I did not like about this episode

What a missed opportunity to have Aaron and his golem fight alongside the Winchesters again
31(26.7%)

Dean, so I could make eye contact with Sam
2(3.7%)

Sad no-appetite Dean and MoC no-appetite Dean
13(9.2%)
Dean and Indiana Jones
14(9.9%)
Hitler and Lucifer, because they've been waiting to be released, and a pocket watch is much like a cage
8(5.6%)
Hitler and Lucifer, just because they're both kind of awful
14(9.9%)
Ellie and Mary, because of the 'running away thing'

What do we think about Hitler only needing Ellie's literal blood, and not her shared DNA?

Makes perfect sense
4(9.5%)
Makes no sense in the logic of the SPN universe and it bothers me
4(9.5%)
Makes no sense in the logic of the SPN universe and I'm handwaving it
