Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 13

“Devil’s Bargain” Supernatural follows Lucifer’s attempts to regain his lost power and moves characters around to set things up for the remainder of the season. Mark Pellegrino is one of the best assets this show has. There has always been a huge risk of his version of Lucifer becoming stale because too much of a…

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 7

“War of the Worlds” Supernatural moves more pieces around and starts to ramp up the tension between the various factions on the lookout for Jack. Jack’s disappearance last week is something of a curveball for Sam, Dean and Castiel who are working to deal with the fallout of this. Finding Jack is top priority but…

Supernatural – Season 12 Episode 22

“Who We Are” Supernatural picks up from last week as Sam takes the fight to the British Men of Letters and Dean tries to de-program his mother. It looks like this season we get two finales for the price of one. There have been two stories running concurrently this season. Lucifer’s child and the British…

Supernatural – Season 12 Episode 21

“There’s Something About Mary” Supernatural focuses on the Men of Letters as a threat when they start their mission to kill all of the American Hunters. This is actually a really big story and I’m surprised that the writers chose to deal with it so quickly. The systematic killing of the American Hunters is something…

Supernatural – Season 12 Episode 20

“Twigs & Twine & Tasha Banes” Supernatural brings back two characters introduced earlier in the season to ask for Sam and Dean’s help on a hunt. With such a small number of episodes left until the finale it feels odd to have an episode that doesn’t appear to be connected to the ongoing arc. This…

Supernatural – Season 12 Episode 18

“The Memory Remains” Supernatural sends Sam and Dean on the hunt for a low level God as Mr. Ketch starts working towards his inevitable betrayal. This is definitely one of those episodes where there isn’t a lot to say about what goes on. The case of the week is fairly standard as these things go…

Supernatural – Season 12 Episode 17

“The British Invasion” Supernatural continues developing Mick questioning his training and how that relates to practical hunting while setting the stage for the end of the season. Last week was an eye opener for Mick. He learned that things aren’t as black and white as he initially thought and that not all “monsters” are necessarily…

Supernatural – Season 12 Episode 14

“The Raid” Supernatural focuses on the Men of Letters and explores Sam and Dean’s strained reaction to Mary’s affiliation with them. I mentioned last week that the Men of Letters plot was in need of development and this episode certainly brings that. It can be really interesting to separate Sam and Dean to enhance their…

Supernatural – Season 12 Episode 13

“Family Feud” Supernatural picks up the Lucifer love child plot as the Winchesters hunt a ghost left over from a recovered shipwreck and Mary continues to work with the Men of Letters. One standing challenge that must come up a lot in the writers room is how to make a ghost hunt not feel derivative…

Supernatural – Season 12 Episode 12

“Stuck in the Middle (With You)” Supernatural brings the Winchesters against a very powerful demon that turns out to be much more than they could have ever predicted. I’m aware that the description sounds like a fairly generic plot for this show and it definitely is but the execution of this made made it much…
