Zoinks! It’s finally here. On Thursday, March 29, Supernatural will have its first crossover episode. No, it’s not with Arrow or iZombie, or even The 100, despite Season 13’s foray into a post-apocalyptic world. Hold the phone! Supernatural will crossover with your favorite childhood show, Scooby-Doo, in an episode called “Scoobynatural.” Continue reading
In the Season 13 Supernatural episode “A Most Holy Man,” the Winchesters get involved in the trade of illegal religious artifacts and organized crime. Sam and Dean remain focused on opening a portal to the Apocalypse Universe to rescue their mother and Jack. “A Most Holy Man” was written by showrunners Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer, who pay homage to ’40s noir movies. The episode was directed by Amanda Tapping, who, as well as having played the angel administrator Naomi in Season 8, has become a regular director for the Supernatural series. Supernatural creates something fun and different in “A Most Holy Man” by referencing Hollywood crime dramas of the past. Continue reading
Season 13 of Supernatural has introduced interesting new characters while reviving some of our favorites. “Good Intentions” continues this fan service with the return of a beloved character, while focusing on the danger posed by the alternative universe Michael (Christian Keyes). Writer Meredith Glynn (“Regarding Dean,” “The Scorpion and the Frog”) and Director P.J. Pesce (“Family Feud“, “There’s Something About Mary“) touch on the gray in the black-and-white world of villains and heroes. Continue reading
On Saturday, January 13, an erroneous alert about a ballistic middle inbound for Hawaiʻi created public fear and confusion. This personal essay isn’t our usual type of content at The Supernatural Fox Sisters, though dealing with a potential missile threat was certainly a spooky situation.
Sleeping in on Saturday morning in Hawaiʻi—sounds lovely, doesn’t it? To many it evokes images of palm trees gently swaying outside the window as waves are heard crashing in the distance. When you finally venture outside you feel the hot sun on your face and hear the birds singing in the trees. Our most recent Saturday in Hawaiʻi was a very different experience. Continue reading
For many, the family, feasting, and festivities of December 25 have merged with the tradition of the Doctor Who Christmas Special. Since the rebirth of the Doctor Who series in 2005, we’ve come to anticipate the Christmas spirit that emerges from the intersection of space and time. “Twice Upon a Time,” written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay, does not disappoint.

In “Advanced Thanatology,” Supernatural gives us the heebie-jeebies with a tale of torture, death, and the dangers of adolescent peer pressure. It’s more than a monster hunt, with a couple of reunions to spice up the drama of Season 13. “Advanced Thanatology” reinforces what we all already knew in our hearts—the Winchesters are important to life, the multiverse, and everything.

Some exposition regarding each team’s objectives would have gone a long way to make the episode easier to follow. “The Damned” is about the tension and strategy of war, but it also addresses the moral conflicts engendered in armed conflict.
