“The British Invasion” brings together a lot of pieces on the Supernatural board, moving forward the story of the British Men of Letters in conjunction with that of Satan’s unborn child.

We’ve been watching Sam and Dean Winchester saving people and hunting things for over a decade. Supernatural has kept us engaged through 11 seasons by giving us great stories and characters that we connect to emotionally.
