Sam and Dean didn't share a single scene

And I didn't like it
9(25.7%)
I was okay with it, because they were obviously still on each others' minds

How concerned are you about Jack?

Very; I'm afraid he won't be around after this season
6(19.4%)
A little, but I think he'll probably survive
10(32.3%)
Not much; he's a very popular character and they tend to stick around even if they were originally supposed to kick it (see: Castiel)
12(38.7%)
Not at all, because I'm tired of him and I hope he dies
1(3.2%)
I'm undecided
2(6.5%)
I have comments
0(0.0%)

Questions I still have

Where was Cas?
5(4.7%)
Why would Jack say he'd been exposed to Gabriel/Rowena, since that happened while he was in AU Land?
16(15.0%)
Why didn't the fly goo start digesting Sam and Charlie?
11(10.3%)
Why was it daylight when Dean burst into Harper's apartment, but nighttime when Jack and Harper fled?
10(9.3%)
Why can't more monsters be killed with a good old-fashioned head shot?
10(9.3%)
Why no mention of Rowena?
8(7.5%)
Was Dean making a spaghetti taco?
10(9.3%)
Is that letter ever going to get to Jack?
16(15.0%)
Will Charlie go find the version of Cara who lives in this world?
13(12.1%)
And can it be Dr. Cara Roberts? Please?

Remember, no spoilers in the comments, please!

ETA... I can’t believe I forgot to list Jack as someone who might have given Sam the fidget spinner, which is really stupid since that’s my theory!!! Ugh. Blame the cold I’m coming down with.
