Supernatural 8.21 – The Great Escapist

SN821a_0025b-630x433

Good news! Sam and Dean have found their prophet. He’s back on Garth’s boat.

Kinda shaky news: their prophet is looking rough, yo.

Back on the plus side, it seems that even though Kevin ran away in a fit of insanity and anxiety, he hasn’t forgotten the fundamentals; super soak with holy water first, ask questions later. Especially when the Winchester brothers neglect to use the secret clubhouse knock. Nevertheless, the holy water has zero ill effect and they come bearing a gift: 50% of one mystical, magical piece of piety that they’ve stolen from Crowley using a bit of bait and switch. Kevin gets to work on translating and the boys leave him after Sam gives him a perky puppy of a pep talk.

Does anyone else feel like they REALLY missed something? Continue reading

Supernatural 8.20 – Pac-Man Fever

SN820A-0180b-630x432

Harry S. Truman is on the wall, Dixieland jazz is playing on the gramophone, Dean Winchester is in a military uniform with spit-slick, part-perfect hair and here we sit with absolutely zero explanation as to why we’ve time warped back to 1951. Dean doesn’t know what’s going on either, all he knows is he’s barricaded in and the music ain’t his scene, so he busts out. The hallway is carnage, dead nurses as far as the eye can see. The only clue we (Dean included) get is a newspaper declaring Truman’s denial of military experimentation.

Oh yeah, and something’s after Dean. Continue reading

Supernatural 8.19 – Taxi Driver

SN819B-0362b-630x432

Kevin Tran is hearing a voice in his head. Crowley’s voice to be exact. His voice is warning him that working with the Winchesters leads nowhere fast and if he thinks Crowley taking his finger was bad Kevin’s brain supplies the image and feeling of being a broken, maimed, bloody mess.

The next morning Sam and Dean pay a Kevin a visit. Kevin is a paranoid, unwashed mess babbling about Crowley living in his brain. Dean thinks Kevin needs to eat more Xanax. On the plus side, Kevin has translated the second trial: an innocent soul has to be rescued from Hell and returned to Heaven. Oh, gee, is that all. Continue reading

Supernatural 8.18 – Freaks and Geeks

SN818a_0182b-630x433

Remember Krissy? Vaguely? Yeah, same here, but thankfully the previouslies are there to jog our memory about the child of a hunter going straight. There’s also a lot of vampire refresher course going on, so it’s safe to surmise that it’s gonna be of some import.

Conway Springs, Kansas, Krissy and a boy toy are sucking face in a parked car. A shadow streaks past the window and the kids seem freaked. That is until the boy hops out of the car and removes the shadow’s head from its shoulders (the shadow was actually a vampire, by the way). Another girl, Josephine, emerges from the shadow and we find out that the underage trio are playing bait and decapitate. The boy, Aiden, seems shook up but relieved.

One down, two to go. Continue reading

Supernatural 8.17 – Goodbye Stranger

SN817A_0369b-630x433

SPN springtime hiatus is done.

And how do we come back? With a tooth and nail fight between Castiel and Dean. Wait… what? Yup, that’s right. Dean and Castiel are duking it out and Dean’s not doing so well. If you put money on Castiel taking Dean out with his angel sword you’d be a winner. And a sick son of a gun, too.

The lights come on and Naomi comes into the room, high heels tapping in an evil angel way. She’s proud of Castiel because she doesn’t have to give him two for flinching; he took Dean out like an assassin. Which, judging from the hundreds upon hundreds of Dean doppelganger corpses littering the floor, he’s had some practice doing for quite some time. Continue reading

Supernatural 8.15 – Man’s Best Friend With Benefits

Supernatural_8x15_samples__49_

The alleyway is dark, the woman walking through it is a hooker, man is following her and she’s wearing heels. This is not going to go well for her. The man flashes his badge. Damn the fuzz, man. He goes to cuff her, but instead he murders her in a bloody fashion. With his bare hands. Dirty cops are the worst.

Suddenly, the same man jackknifes up in his bed. It was all a terrible nightmare. His faithful Doberman whines in sympathy, or annoyance at being woken up. The man heads the kitchen for a drink and finds his bloody monogrammed shirt in his trashcan that strongly implies the dream evidence is contrary. Continue reading

Supernatural 8.14 – Trial and Error

Trial and Error

Remember years ago when we learned about goofer dust? Keep that information on the tip of your brain, because according to the “Then” portion of the opener it’s gonna come in handy.

We’ll get back to that later. Right now, on Garth’s boat, Kevin Tran’s alarm is going off at the ungodly hour of 5am. The kid is running on a steady diet of hot dogs, coffee, aspirin, 2 hours of sleep and his own stench. It pays off though, Kevin hits his “eureka” moment. Right before his nose oozes blood and he passes out cold. Saving the world is a rough gig. Continue reading

Supernatural 8.13 – Everybody Hates Hitler

SN814b_0364b

Picture it, Vitsyebsk, 1944. The Nazi Germans are partying it up in the then Soviet Union, but their lighthearted fun is interrupted by an attack, broken glass, a Nazi book in need of protection, the sounds of gunfire and shouts that whatever is taking them out just won’t go down no matter how much lead they pump into in. The commandant orders them to keep fighting, fight to the death. And they do. Even as a giant comes crashing through the doors and decimates them while their bullets just absorb into him.

Meanwhile, the commandant is chanting in Latin. He casts a spell that makes him disappear and sets the room on fire.

Wait. Nazi magicians?

We’ll get back to that later. Continue reading

Supernatural 8.12 – As Time Goes By

This week’s previously is a full rundown of all things past regarding the Winchester/Campbell union that lead to Sam and Dean’s existence. Which is a nice refresher for the handful of fans that can’t recite everything Supernatural from memory at the drop of a colt. Continue reading

Supernatural 8.10 – Torn and Frayed

image9

The lyrics of Katmandu blare out an allusion to Purgatory and that brings us back from hiatus to the second half of Supernatural season 8. We open up with a bound and bloody Samandriel forcing a metal spike from his frontal lobe and praying for Naomi to rescue him. Unfortunately, he’s caught in the act by his tormentor who shoves the spike back right between Samandriel’s eyes and into his brain, cutting off his ability to radio for help.

If you remember, last we left our heroes they were none to pleased with each other. Though it’s been weeks upon weeks in our world no time has passed for the Winchester brothers. Sam is still in Kermit, Texas and he’s still really pissed off at his brother. Dean mans up a bit and goes to visit Sam in the motel room he’s holed up in, Sam ponders slamming the door in Dean’s face, but lets him in instead. We are not treated to the heart to heart that we’ve been dreaming of, oh no, no, no what we get is Dean trying to justify his actions and Benny’s actions and Sam being far to logical for Dean’s liking. Sam effectively tells Dean that the boy he’s seeing (Benny) is no good and that he should break up with him. Dean disagrees and leaves. Continue reading
