Every once in a while the need comes along to catch up on all those little misc items hanging around. After all, serious business must be settled. Like the “Name Sam’s Shirt” contest.
Voting on the name will be happening during the hiatus week of October 19th, so there’s plenty of time to throw more suggestions my way. And that’s more of a plea than a hint. Here’s all we have so far:
- Shirt of Angst
- The Sad Puppy Shirt
- The Paisley Peril
- The Epic Shirt of Awesome
Also, stories, poems, whatever about how Sam found the shirt are welcome. So far, Karen submitted a fantastic poem that if you haven’t seen in the comments here, you should check it out.
On the fan convention front, I’m actually going to the Salute to Supernatural Convention in Chicago next month! A ticket in the General Admission section came free on Sunday, so I bought it and one for Saturday as well. I’m going to sit in the back of that big ballroom and observe the fan experience. I’ll be there in the bar drinking the super weak and completely wrong purple nurples and talking with everyone all weekend. If a rare chance comes up to ask Jared about the shirt too I’ll go for it, but that’s a slim chance, especially since I have no autographs or photo-ops. So, if you’re going and see an obnoxious redhead in the bar, chances are you’ve found me!
Okay, so it’s episode week. This week is “I Believe The Children Are Our Future.” Want a description?
Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate a series of odd murders that strangely resemble fairytales and urban legends. The brothers track down an 11-year-old boy named Jesse (guest star Gattlin Griffith) and realize that whatever Jesse believes is coming true. Castiel (Misha Collins) tells Sam and Dean that Jesse is a serious threat and needs to be eliminated. Charles Beeson directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin.
Next week, the show takes a break and “Sympathy For The Devil” will be repeated. After that, there will be four new episodes and then the show goes on its midseason hiatus until an undetermined date in January. Six weeks at least, maybe longer. Yes, another hellatus. I’m already strategizing how I’m going to handle that break as far as time passing articles for the site. This is where I might be asking for some feedback. But, I’m getting ahead of myself.
Okay, that’s all I’ve got for now. Tomorrow I’ll have the “Tell Us What You Think” thread up and let the sparks fly!
