Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 5

“Nightmare Logic” Supernatural explores differing views on leadership and the fears that live deep inside people that they try to bury. The most interesting thing going on for Sam this season is that he’s in a position of leadership and acting as a mentor for a group of Hunters. Even though they have experience fighting…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 3

“The Scar” Supernatural returns Dean to his old self and picks up a thread intended to be explored in the sadly unrealised Wayward Sisters spin-off. Dean being back so soon is something I’m concerned about as there has potentially been a lot of storytelling potential lost by having Michael disappear from his body this early…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 2

“Gods and Monsters” Supernatural concentrates on developing some of the secondary characters as Michael experiments to create stronger monsters. This show started out as a roadtrip show. Sam and Dean would roll into town, deal with the supernatural threat and move onto their next job. This storytelling structure meant that there would be very little…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 1

“Stranger in a Strange Land” Supernatural returns for a 14th season that picks up where the last one ended with Dean possessed by Michael and Sam trying to pick up the pieces. Last season’s finale ended on a bleak note though viewers would be forgiven for disputing how serious Dean’s body being taken over by…

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 23

“Let the Good Times Roll” Supernatural ends its thirteenth season with the arrival of Michael into “our” world an further exploration of the Lucifer/Jack dynamic. I mentioned last week that I had no idea what this season finale would be about and I certainly could never have predicted what would come to pass here. The…

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 22

“Exodus” Supernatural delivers the long awaited meeting between Jack and his father Lucifer as the Winchesters consider their options when it comes to helping those in the alternate universe. Much of this season has been focused on the notion of family which has been a recurring theme on this show since it began. What defines…

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 21

“Beat the Devil” Supernatural returns to the alternate world once again for Sam and Dean to mount their much discussed rescue mission with the aid of Rowena and Gabriel. Early on the episode is set up as something of a War story with everyone gearing up for their trip to the other world. The score…

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 20

“Unfinished Business” Supernatural brings Gabriel back into the fold when he recruits Sam and Dean to help him on his personal revenge mission. Before we begin I just want to point out how bizarre it is that Supernatural has been on for 13 years and has never used the title “Unfinished Business”. I felt that…

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 14

“Good Intentions” Supernatural returns to the alternate world as Sam and Dean are still trying to find a way to get there in order to rescue Mary and Jack. We haven’t seen the alternate world since Jack made his way there back in “The Bad Place” so returning to it was definitely on the cards….

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 9

“The Bad Place” Supernatural brings Jack back into the fold and returns to the universe hopping plot before going into its winter hiatus. Jack’s return was inevitably going to be around the time of the winter break. He’s a necessary part of the overall plot of the season and required to move things forward. More…
