Your thoughts on AU Michael?

All kinds of awesome
3(4.2%)
I think I'm going to like him
11(15.3%)
I'm thrilled that we have a new POC character
6(8.3%)
As much as I like having a new POC character, I really would have liked to see Matt Cohen come back as Michael
15(20.8%)
And our new POC character could have been Asmodeus, rather than this Colonel Sanders dude
11(15.3%)
I wanted insane Michael
9(12.5%)
He's kind of meh
8(11.1%)
I'm undecided
7(9.7%)
Don't know, don't care; we got any grenades?
2(2.8%)

If Donatello can sense power and evil, why couldn't Kevin?

Donatello is better at his job
2(6.5%)
Kevin's soul blocked him from having those awesome powers
6(19.4%)
Ha ha ha continuity
23(74.2%)

If Jack is more powerful than an angel, why does he need to sleep and eat like a human?

Because his human side is also more human than human, and therefore needs lots of sleep and nutrition
10(25.6%)
Because otherwise we wouldn't have that cute scene where he copies everything Dean does
16(41.0%)
Ha ha ha continuity
13(33.3%)

Why are we suddenly spray-painting sigils on hotel doors now?

Because Jack's extra special and needs extra protection
11(30.6%)
Because the red spray paint coordinated nicely with the red hallway
7(19.4%)
Ha ha ha continuity
18(50.0%)

Why does Dean still have a cut on his lip from his fight with Ketch in 12.22, and yet Sam has no visible wounds after having the shit kicked out of him by angels in 13.01?

Being Lucifer's intended vessel means Sam has superior healing powers
0(0.0%)
Because Jack healed Sam
1(3.1%)
The Powers That Be know you love Dean's pretty face all bloodied up, and look at you, throwing it back at them, for shame
13(40.6%)
As we'll find out later, that entire fight was actually a dream sequence
1(3.1%)
Ha ha ha continuity
17(53.1%)

And speaking of that angel fight, we've got demons having fistfights with the Winchesters too, and why has every supernatural being forgotten its supernatural powers, like sticking humans up on the wall and choking them from across the room?

They were distracted by Jack's power
2(6.1%)
Asmodeus told them to have physical fights because he enjoys it
2(6.1%)
The spray paint fumes made them dizzy and confused
7(21.2%)
Ha ha ha continuity
22(66.7%)

If a battle between Michael and Lucifer in our world would have been apocalyptic, why is it just a puny little fistfight in AU Land?

AU Land has already been through its apocalypse and this is what's left, there's nothing left to destroy
10(19.2%)
AU Michael was deliberately holding back his apocalyptic-level fighting skills because he wanted to use Lucifer, not kill him
14(26.9%)
Angels in AU Land aren't as powerful as angels in our world
2(3.8%)
And since Lucifer is now in AU Land, his powers were subdued as well
2(3.8%)
The archangel battle in our world wouldn't have been earth-shattering either; the angels were lying about that
3(5.8%)
I got nothing
6(11.5%)
Ha ha ha continuity
15(28.8%)

Most exciting new Big Bad

Colonel Asmodeus
7(17.5%)
Shedin
1(2.5%)
Jack
3(7.5%)
Michael
3(7.5%)
Jack shouldn't be on this list because he's NOT A BIG BAD, DAMMIT
16(40.0%)
None of the above are particularly exciting
10(25.0%)

Lucifer saved Mary from a rapist

Yay, he's awesome
0(0.0%)
The beginning of his redemption arc
0(0.0%)
He wasn't interested Mary from a rapist, he just wanted to get on her good side
1(1.4%)
He wasn't interested in saving Mary from a rapist, he was preventing his tool from being broken
24(34.3%)
He wasn't interested Mary from a rapist, he just doesn't like anyone else playing with his toys
19(27.1%)
Also, before we get too excited, let's remember that Lucifer himself is a rapist
19(27.1%)
What do you mean rapist; that guy was just trying to be friendly
1(1.4%)
Oh, hi, Harvey Weinstein
6(8.6%)

Your thoughts on the probability of Jack turning evil

Jack is a sweet precious cinnamon roll and I resent this question
11(19.0%)
You saw the black hat sign, you know what it means - he's going full-on Big Bad
0(0.0%)
Since they're implying so strongly that he will go evil, I think that means it's not going to happen
8(13.8%)
When Jack hurts someone it's unintentional, but when he saves his friends it's deliberate, so he's obviously good at his core
11(19.0%)
When Dean is so convinced someone is evil, he's usually right, so Jack is going bad
1(1.7%)
When Dean is so convinced someone is evil, he's usually wrong, so Jack is going bad
0(0.0%)
When Sam is so convinced someone is good, he's usually right, so Jack is not going bad
1(1.7%)
When Sam is so convinced someone is good, he's usually wrong, so Jack is going bad
3(5.2%)
Too much evidence for both sides for me to have an opinion at this point
9(15.5%)
Not enough evidence on either side for me to have an opinion at this point
12(20.7%)
He's going bad, and you missed the reason why I think that, so I'll discuss it in the comments
0(0.0%)
He's not going bad, and you missed the reason why I think that, so I'll discuss it in the comments
0(0.0%)
Basically, I just need to discuss this in the comments
2(3.4%)

What's with all the sheep references?

It's Biblical, referring to a flock, because the Winchesters and Jack are a flock that need to be protected
2(3.4%)
It's Biblical, referring to a sacrifice, because someone is going to end up like a lamb on the altar
9(15.5%)
It's referring to 'sheeple,' because somebody is just following along instead of thinking for himself
0(0.0%)
The 3 Sheep sign in the bar makes it clear that there are three sheeple - Cas is the 3rd
0(0.0%)
The 3 Sheep sign in the bar makes it clear that there are three sheeple - Jack is the 3rd
0(0.0%)
The 3 Sheep sign in the bar makes it clear that there are three sacrifices
1(1.7%)
I thought you were going to give up on the foreshadowing?
7(12.1%)
This isn't foreshadowing, it's symbolism
5(8.6%)
Yeah, you still need to stop
8(13.8%)
I wouldn't call two references a significant number of sheep references
8(13.8%)
It's still two more than you get in a typical episode, so I'd call it exactly that
5(8.6%)
I've got no idea but I'm dying to find out
2(3.4%)
Don't know, don't care; we got any grenades?
11(19.0%)
Let's take it to the comments
0(0.0%)

Why did Dean freak out over Jack stabbing himself?

His first instinct, when seeing someone get hurt, is to make it stop, so that was a kneejerk reaction
24(52.2%)
Stabbing yourself repeatedly is a non-human thing to do, and Dean gets freaked out by Jack doing non-human things
11(23.9%)
That was a t-shirt he borrowed from Dean
2(4.3%)
He doesn't want Jack to kill himself before he gets to do it
2(4.3%)
He doesn't want blood all over the floor
0(0.0%)
I got nothing
3(6.5%)
I got something, and I'll discuss it in the comments
4(8.7%)

Other unanswered questions I have

How can you be a prophet of God without your soul?
12(10.5%)
What was Jack's other tattoo?
16(14.0%)
Demons can shapeshift?
10(8.8%)
Why is a nephilim more powerful than its angel parent?
11(9.6%)
Why are there so many gates to Hell in Wyoming?
15(13.2%)
If Sam was so concerned about Jack's safety, and Dean was so concerned about keeping others safe from Jack, why didn't they keep him in their room?
15(13.2%)
Why did Asmodeus disguise himself as Donatello, who Jack barely knows, instead of Sam, who Jack also barely knows, but seems to like and trust?
15(13.2%)
How am I suddenly tired of Mark Pellegrino?
9(7.9%)
Where did all the women in AU Land go?
10(8.8%)
How could you miss my question, which I'll now have to put in the comments?
1(0.9%)
