Hi! So it’s been a few weeks since we were all together. How’re y’all doing?
Did you survive the mini-hiatus? Have you been dreaming about hot boys in muscle cars and angels in trench coats? Oh, maybe that’s just me, Awkward…
Anyhoo, Are we ready for a brand new episode? Yes, yes we are! Do we remember where we left off?
Well let me remind you!
THE ROAD SO FAR
(I wonder if we’ll get a Road So Far?)
Sam and Dean are back together – fighting side by side. The girl has gone (we think), the vampire has gone (for now) and they’re facing their next big save the world task united (at the moment).
They are Men of Letters – or at least, they are legacies. They have new digs, which are cool and big and have hot showers and aged booze and a bed that remembers Dean!
It feels like good times…except for that pesky closing the gates of Hell thing!
Crowley stole half of the demon tablet and we don’t know what’s on that half. He also knows about the angel tablet and you know that can’t be a good thing!
Kevin has read and got the gist of his half the demon tablet (half people, half) and now Sam and Dean are tied up in the trials that God has put forth before the gates of Hell can be closed. Sam being the one to kill the hellhound, is now the one to do the trials, and err, it’s making him cough up blood and stuff, and Dean knows but he’s not letting on that he knows, he’s backing his bro and worrying in private…and…praying to Cass.
Cass, well, he’s being manipulated and is under the influence of a nasty piece of work of an angel called Naomi and the fans are a tad worried that maybe he’s not the dude to be praying to right about now! Sam and Dean think something’s off with Cass but they don’t know what and as Cass has been M.I.A. they have no more clues – but then, they don’t seem all that worried about it of late,
BUT IT LOOKS LIKE ALL THAT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE!
THE UNHOLY TRINITY!
Cass is back. Crowley is back. MEG IS BACK (and she’s had a do, seems Crowley is a frustrated hairdresser, remember how he gave Kevin a trim?). It looks like things are about to get real people, REAL!
Ok, sorry, I’m excited! Meg is back! Eeee!
SAM, DEAN, CASTIEL AND MEG TEAM UP AGAINST CROWLEY AND HIS DEMONS – Castiel reappears in Sam and Dean’s life and tells them Crowley has unleashed several demons into a small town. The demons are looking for Lucifer’s Crypt, which holds a valuable asset, but Castiel lies to Sam and Dean about what it is. While interrogating a demon, the three discover Crowley has been torturing Meg, who knows the exact location of the crypt. Sam and Meg fight to hold Crowley off while Dean and Castiel go in search of the crypt. Thomas J. Wright directed the episode written by Robbie Thompson.
I think Crowley’s torture may have been bleaching! Sorry, but seriously, sometimes getting your hair bleached hurts, sorry, again,
Thomas J. Wright has directed 2 episodes of “Supernatural”, season 7’s “Repo Man” and season 8’s “Bitten” the later which happened to be written by Robbie Thompson who also wrote this week’s episode and, “Slash Fiction”, “Time After Time”, “The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo” and “LARP and the Real Girl”. I like Robbie a lot, so I’m pretty excited! I think I may have mentioned that already.
Ok, let’s get straight into it. The promos.
The first and second promos are basically the same, the second being an extension of the first.
Firstly…does everyone have an angel blade these days!? I remember when those things were rare and only used to pop out of angel’s sleeves, now every man and his demon seems to have one! Obviously angels don’t take care of their stuff!
Secondly…that tomb really reminds me of Raiders! Like they’re going to whack a staff in a hole and wait for the sun to show them where the Devil’s crypt is or something!
Thirdly…there’s more than one episode going on here – because Krissy is in the long promo and she’s in episode 8.18.
Fourthly – I’m in love with that Stormtrooper line! Oh my gosh…major Star Wars geek out going on here! Thank you Robbie!
I guess the broad with the rollers in her hair is a demon. I wonder who Cass is stabbing at the end when it goes all red and WHY DOES HE PUNCH DEAN OUT. A-wah…me no likey. Though maybe he doesn’t realise it’s Dean because it looks like he just strikes out – I don’t know though. Eeep. Dean’s not going to be a happy Winchester!
I also wonder how much of this is 8.17 and how much is 8.18.
Also the car stuff at the top is super HOT!
Hmmmm, so does Cass know that he’s working with Naomi now? Because before it was like when he came back from those trips to that room, he didn’t realise what was happening, or that he wasn’t making his own choices, but now it seems like he’s onboard with it.
How does Sam know Dean was praying to Cass? I wonder if we’re going to see him overhearing Dean’s prayer or something? Or maybe Dean is praying again and Sam busts him. I don’t blame Dean for praying to Cass, he wants to believe in his friend and he feels like that’s the only helpful route that may be possibly open to him right now I guess… And let’s face it, he’ll do whatever is needed to protect Sam *wibble*.
What the hell is with this Naomi chick. What’s her deal? I really want to know what she’s about, what she’s up to damn it! What’s the “everything” that her and Cass are not sharing with the bros? Mysterious! I wonder how long she will be around for. I saw Amanda Tapping’s tweets that she’s got a couple of more episodes – so I guess she’s around for a while long.
The strange haired demon in the kitchen – hahaha! Well those rollers are odd. And yes, demon.
I have to say when I first saw this clip I laughed so damn hard at the end when Cass said he could hear them because he’s a celestial being. This is what I like about Robbie’s scripts – he can balance that serious with the humour stuff. That was a pearler of a line!
LATE ENTRY! CHCH PROMO!
No idea if there will be a Carver preview (ever again), but if there is…it’ll be below this line when it drops!
So what are your thoughts? I must say I’m pretty excited by this preview, but I’m nervous too. I don’t know what’s happening with Cass or where it’s all going and I’m scared everyone’s going to get all hurt again – as in emotionally – including US!
Alrighty then…let me know your thoughts. Hit me in the comments!
It’s good to be back!
