User Reviews

On its own it's fine, but in context it doesn't really work.
9 April 2020 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

I do like the big twist at the end of the episode as it helps focus the season. Of course I love the Jefferson Starships creatures and jokes. But that is pretty much all I can say in favor of the episode. The Mother of All is a truly underdeveloped concept in the season and given that she is not the aggressor of the situation it's really hard t o square what she is meant to bring to the season on the whole. They make her to sympathetic to be an antagonist you dislike but she doesn't have enough material to be a frenemy. The season suffers greatly from the lack of a clear cut big bad and this episode should have gone a lot further than it did alone that route. Moreover, Eve goes down way to easily. The episode is highly anticlimactic.

While the lines of Dean picking on Cas being useless are funny they are very mean-spirited and are misplaced. The humor in this episode is shockingly sour for the show.
