It’s here! It’s here! Our 62 day ordeal is over!!! There’s no grander feeling than episode night, especially after a long Hellatus. So, settle in, unplug the phone, put the kids to bed and enjoy! Afterward, come back here and tell us what you think.
I have an announcement too! Robin Vogel, who’s been doing some great work with her Supernatural page at Moogi.com and at the TV Guide.com community (before they took those down), is going to start doing episode discussions and other things for us! I’m thrilled to have her on board. She wrote this little intro in anticipation for tonight. Welcome Robin!
When you love a TV show as much as I do SUPERNATURAL, nine weeks–63 days–without a new episode, crawls along with the brutally slow cruelty of the Midwest winter of 2010.
I’ve read so much fan fiction, I’m not sure what’s canon and what isn’t anymore, but I do like the way some alternative universe writers have given the Winchester brothers much happier lives away from hunting, or kept both John and Mary alive.
One of the reasons I love this show so much is because the brothers have become real, wonderful, self-sacrificing young men to me, and I desperately want to see them happy. With them in Eric and Sera’s hands, we know that won’t be happening anytime soon, if ever. So seeing them given joyous endings in the hands of capable, sometimes brilliant fan fic writers soothes my soul. I’m aware that such stories are fairy tales, however, and we must return to the real world, Eric-and-Sera fueled episodes in which Sam and Dean are tortured, mentally, emotionally and physically, and I can’t wait! Especially since the wait for a new episode after the four-hanky â€œAbandon All Hope,â€ has seemed particularly lengthy.
Tonight, at long last, that wait ends. Despite my devotion to remaining spoiler-free, I couldn’t help watching a couple of clips that appeared on my computer screen requiring a mere clickâ€”they tease me so! I’m mostly human, I needed a fix of my show, don’t judge me! I’ve already laughed and gotten upset over what I’ve seen, and those were only brief glimpses of what’s to come! Oh, Sammy! Oh, Dean!
I watch SUPERNATURAL alone. If the phone rings, someone else must answer it. If the dogs bark, someone else must tend to them. If there’s bleeding, I’ll apply pressure to my own wound and tell anyone else to just apply pressure to theirs until 9:58 PM.
I’m a SUPERNATURAL addict, and my show is back tonight!
