Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 19

“Jack In The Box” Supernatural marches towards the season finale by continuing the tension around Jack’s unpredictability and how different parties try to deal with that. There is one scene in this episode that sums up Jack’s mental state at this point in time. It’s the scene where he sits alone with his thoughts -and…

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 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 12 Episode 23

“All Along the Watchtower” Supernatural wraps up season 12 by returning to the Lucifer’s child plot as the father comes looking for his son. Lucifer as a character has been a lot like this season in general. He has been random and unfocused. This season more so than any other I can remember has jumped…

Supernatural – Season 11 Episode 16

“Safe House” Supernatural brings back a couple of old friends as Sam and Dean follow up on an old case that turned out to be unfinished. This is another of those episodes that could be considered filler as it has no real forward momentum on the Amara story and there are no major revelations about…
