Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 18

“Bring ‘Em Back Alive” Supernatural returns to the alternate universe for a rescue mission as Lucifer struggles to maintain control of Heaven and Sam works to help Gabriel along with Castiel. We’re on the final stretch of the season now which usually means that the plot starts to ramp up. This episode is an example…

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 17

“The Thing” Supernatural returns to the MacGuffin hunt leading Sam and Dean to a mysterious woman shackled up in a Men of Letters basement since the 1920s. After last week‘s excellent diversion it’s time to get back to the main plot which means that the brothers are in full research mode. Dean finds the prospect…

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…
