Supernatural fans at San Diego Comic-Con had a special treat this year. Not only did Misha Collins (Castiel) bring donuts to those waiting in line, but the panel opened with Kansas on stage playing “Carry on Wayward Son.” As panel hosts Richard Speight, Jr. (Gabriel) and Rob Benedict (Chuck) pointed out, it felt like a sign that Supernatural has really made it. Apparently, they weren’t the only ones excited to see the band because Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester), Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) and Misha Collins surprised fans when they stood in the back of Hall H to watch Kansas perform. You never know you might see in the crowd at San Diego Comic-Con, especially at a Supernatural panel. Continue reading

Supernatural S12E23 Review: All Along the Watchtower

Sam Mary Dean Supernatural All Along the WatchtowerThe Season 12 finale of Supernatural, “All Along the Watchtower,” stirred up some strong feelings among viewers. The audience was feeling pretty great after watching “Who We Are,” an emotionally fulfilling episode in which the Winchesters finally get a win. It felt good … maybe too good. Our joy melted away and turned to shock as we lost one beloved character after another in “All Along the Watchtower.” Say what you will about the tendency of Supernatural to kill off their characters, it was a riveting hour of television. Showrunners Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb took responsibility for crafting an episode that they knew would be controversial, with Singer directing and Dabb writing “All Along the Watchtower.” Continue reading

Supernatural Season 12 Finale Points to the Past and the Future

0

Sam Castiel Dean Supernatural All Along the WatchtowerAfter a satisfactory Season 12 of Supernatural, we get a two-part season finale that far exceeds expectations. This was certainly the most improved finale event in terms of the hit-or-misses we’ve seen over the years. In an unusual move, Supernatural gave us Episode 22, “Who We Are,” and Episode 23, “All Along the Watchtower,” on the same night. Was it a network decision driven by timing, or a storytelling choice to give us these two excellent episodes together for the Season 12 finale? Either way, it worked. Continue reading

Supernatural S12E21 Review: There’s Something About Mary

Mary Toni Supernatural Theres Something about Mary“There’s Something About Mary” is the beginning of the end for Season 12 of Supernatural. The conflicts we’ve watched all season are finally coming to a head. “There’s Something About Mary” was written by Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming and directed by P.J. Pesce, the trio previously responsible for “Family Feud” and “King of the Damned.” Despite a series of grim events, the episode doesn’t have the emotional punch we love in Supernatural. We could live with the emotional omission, but it’s the flawed story that really hurts “There’s Something About Mary.” Continue reading

Kelly Castiel Dean Sam Supernatural The Future“The Future” of Supernatural may not be quite what we expected. Misha Collins returns to Supernatural, giving us a wonderful performance as Castiel experiencing a crisis of conscience. “The Future” was written by Robert Berens and Meredith Glynn. Amanda Tapping (Stargate SG-1, Sanctuary) makes a return to Supernatural, not in her previous role as the angel Naomi, but as a director. “The Future” reminds us that in Supernatural, good and evil are not always absolutes.
