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 18

“Absence” Supernatural deals with the fallout of the previous episode and continues to explore how much of Jack’s soul has been lost. The previous episode had some very obvious foreshadowing of Mary Winchester’s fate that led up to a cliffhanger ending suggesting that she was in real danger around Jack after what he did to…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 17

“Game Night” Supernatural continues to explore the question of whether Jack still has a soul as a familiar antagonist makes an unwelcome return. The restoration of Jack’s powers countered by not knowing the extent of the consequences attached to this has been a source of intrigue over the past few episodes. Jack is being keenly…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 12

“Prophet and Loss” Supernatural takes Dean on one last hunt before taking the eternal plunge to the bottom of the ocean as Sam tries to convince him that there is always hope. Episodes like this are awkward as they sit in-between large plot developments and the continuation of said plots. Such is the folly of…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 7

“Unhuman Nature” Sam, Dean and Castiel scramble desperately to find a way to save Jack when his condition worsens in the latest Supernatural. Jack has certainly made an impression in his relatively short time on the show. His presence has enabled Sam, Dean and Castiel to learn what sort of a father they would be…

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…
