Supernatural starts us on an exciting journey to the Season 12 finale in “Who We Are.” The British Men of Letters have been unmasked as homicidal control freaks with impeccable manners. Ketch has sent Mary out to assassinate American hunters, while Sam and Dean are trapped in the bunker with Lady Toni. “Who We Are” was directed by John Showalter and written by Robert Berens, both Supernatural veterans who know the characters and the series well.

We won’t feign excitement about every episode of Supernatural, but we do enjoy quite a lot of them. And then there are those we love. “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell” proves that Supernatural just gets better with age. Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester), Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester), Misha Collins (Castiel), and Mark Sheppard (Crowley) know their characters so well that they can tell us more with a downcast look or monosyllabic word than most TV actors can with an entire monologue. “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell,” written by Davy Perez and directed by Nina Lopez-Corrado, tells a scary story with an exciting twist and a few winks at the audience.

It was directed by John Badham, who has been with the show since Season 9. Continue reading

Here are some television and web series that might appeal to those with a passion for all things Supernatural. Continue reading
It’s been two months since we attended the Las Vegas Supernatural convention (March 10–13, 2016), but we’re just getting over it. The Vegas Con was a marathon of Supernatural fun—the only US con that is a full four days long. Here’s a rundown of the stars who appeared at #vegascon 2016 and some of the weekend’s highlights.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: If a centuries-old vengeance demon like Anya (Emma Caulfield) is deathly afraid of rabbits, perhaps there’s something to learn there. Anya wears a bunny costume for Halloween in Season 4 because she’s told that the idea is to dress as “something scary.” Buffy lore has retconned Anya’s leporiphobia into having some relation to the fact that she seems to have bred and raised rabbits back in the Middle Ages when she was human (see S07E05, “Selfless”), but we don’t think she needs a reason.
