SUPERNATURAL “Paint it Black” — (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET)The Official Promo
ROWENA MAKES PLANS TO RECLAIM HER MAGIC
Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate a string of suicides committed by people with little in common other than the identical, grisly method of death – slow, self-administered disembowelment. All of the victims were members of a Catholic church and had recently given confession, leading the brothers to suspect the priest (guest star Stephen Daniel Curtis) is somehow involved. Meanwhile, when Crowley (Mark Sheppard) captures Olivette (guest star Teryl Rothery), the leader of the Grand Coven, Rowena (guest star Ruth Connell) pleads her case to be allowed to practice magic freely again. John Showalter directed this episode written by Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming (#1016). Original airdate 3/25/2015.
The Sneak Peek
And the Promotional Photos
I have to admit, I’m not getting a lot from what we know. The MOTW sounds like something we haven’t met before. Suicide by disembowelment sounds messy and nasty. The Press Release says the boys suspect the priest, but the promo and the photos seem to focus on the nun. We are also going to go back to Rowena and Crowley. Maybe we will find out more about the Grand Coven? Perhaps we will find out what exactly Rowena did to get banned from practicing magic freely again. What do you think is causing the suicides? Does Rowena want more than just her magic back? Do you think this will tie into the larger story of the Mark of Cain? Or is the Crowley storyline completely separate? I admit I’m not getting much of a feeling for what will happen in this episode. What ideas do you have? Let us know in the comments.
Today three interviews with Ruth Connell have been published. One from Screenfad, EW, and BuddyTV. In all of the interviews she discusses Rowena’s relationship with Crowley and hints at what is going on with the Grand Coven.
What do you think? Do these articles make you more interested in the Rowena/Crowley story?
And in an unusual move, we have a producer’s preview with Jeremy Carver.
I’m not sure I see suicide by disembowlment as “romantic”, but maybe? And if they are disembowling themselves, their anatomy is severely off, because the guy in the clip? Is stabbing near his heart. Anyway, we have a little more information.
