And we’re back! After a long hiatus and a world vastly different that it seemed six weeks ago, we are back with the boys to learn more about Billie’s plans for Chuck, Jack and the apocalypse. Not to mention a quick pit stop in an alternate world and a reminder that despite Chuck’s approachable demeanor, he’s interminably vicious in every way.
I’m feeling like Chuck these days. I’m tired of the alternate realities, the subplots, the failed spin-offs, etc. I just want a focused, somewhat interesting freaking story to play out in a satisfactory manner. Episode 12 out of 20 and that is not happening at all. Unfortunately, instead of going out with a bang, “Supernatural” is going out with a tired, unspectacular whimper. The creative team has run out of gas and is now pushing an empty Impala with a slow, agonizing pace toward the finish line.
Well, that was a bit of a surprise! It wasn’t what I had hoped to see but maybe it was what needed to be shown.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ve enjoyed all of Kaia’s episodes, largely because Yadira Guevara-Prip is a good young actress. She has excellent timing and presence on the screen and I enjoy the diversity she brings to the Supernatural world. As a character, Kaia has spunk and advanced fighting skills, plus a unique dream walking ability. She has always been my favorite wayward daughter.
Now: Four weeks ago - Earth 2
A simple storefront - Radio Shed - with "Clearance" signs. A woman with long red hair browses; the dark-haired clerk smiles at her. She leaves. Louden Swain music plays in the background! The radio is reporting on President Clinton starting to campaign for her reelection when Chuck walks through the door. The clerk tries to interest him in their "superstore inventory." "Not really what I'm looking for," Chuck tells him. What he wants is an AUDIENCE. He gestures toward the wall of TV screens, then begins to tell his story.
