During Thursday’s episode, Sam and Dean once again found themselves fighting Nazis. However, this time around, they came face to face with Adolf Hitler. For real, the fictional version of Hitler.
The Thule (aka, Nazis) came back into the picture (the Winchesters have previously fought them) to resurrect Hitler once and for all. How the heck do you bring back the genocidal maniac, you might be asking? Supernatural‘s version of Hitler’s death included his loyal followers trapping his soul inside a pocket watch (you know, like a horcrux on Harry Potter). Then, they needed to find Hitler’s blood relative because that is the only way his soul could inhabit a body.
Also the point was making Hitler look like a joke. Sound familiar? 🤔 #supernatural

This episode is actually kind of scary. Talking about Hitler's return the same week Trump wins the election. 😑 #supernatural

Sorry #Supernatural but an ep about resurrecting Hitler hits a bit too close to home atm

Who knows if it was Supernatural‘s intention to make this particular episode so timely, but it definitely spoke volumes at a time when parts of the nation are still trying to come to terms with Trump as the 45th POTUS.
Supernatural airs Thursdays at 9/8c on The CW.
