It’s that time again to start thinking about the next episode. Are they coming around really quickly or what? Sure feels like it!
Anyway, as usual let’s start with..
So Sam and Dean put a halt to an ancient Mayan curse and in doing so, stopped a bunch of transplant patients from ripping out people’s hearts…literally.
Jensen directed his dad.
The boys looked really tanned.
Dean is digging being back in the hunt and Sam, well he isn’t. O-oh.
Sam told Dean that, when the search for Kevin and the Word of God is done and dusted, when those gates of Hell are closed forever with all the demons tucked safely inside, Sam is out, he’s done, he wants a normal life, like the one he had the year Dean was in Purgatory, like the one he scarpered out on in the middle of the night!
Dean being Dean (final back to being Dean) didn’t believe him, of course! Surely Sam will come around? I mean, Dean doesn’t want to be anywhere but by his brother’s side. Where he’s at his best is right there, in the Impala, driving down crazy-street, next to Sam. So how can it be possible that Sam won’t eventually feel the same way?
OW! It even hurts writing it.
So, I remember Jensen and Jared talking about this episode at VanCon and being all excited because “Supernatural” had never done anything like this before. This is the episode that's being call the found footage episode, because Sam and Dean find a video done by some college kids that reveals evidence in a case they’re investigating.
Unlike the “Ghostfacers” episode, where they were on camera and very much part of the case itself, it looks like Sam and Dean aren’t going to be in this one all that much. Apparently, they bookend the episode, but are also surprised to see themselves repeatedly captured on the video, while looking into the case.
So here’s the official synopsis for 8.04 “Bitten”.
A UNIQUE EPISODE OF SUPERNATURAL — Sam and Dean investigate a bizarre murder in a college town. Close on the tail of their suspect, they bust into an apartment to find two dead bodies and a laptop cued up to some disturbing video footage. The footage begins with Brian (guest star Leigh Parker), Mike (guest star Brandon W. Jones) and Kate (guest star Britni Sheridan) hearing about an unusual animal attack in their town and the rest of the story is revealed through their eyes. Sam and Dean become unknowing participants in a unique student film. Thomas J. Wright directed the episode written by Robbie Thompson.
The last little bit of that synopsis excites me because, in my opinion, Robbie Thompson was the big shining light to come out of season 7. He wrote “Slash Fiction”, “Time After Time” and “The Girl with the Dungeons And Dragons Tattoo”. Thomas J. Wright, directed last season’s Edlund penned “Repo Man.”
So looking at the promo, we see Sam and Dean investigating animal attacks and some cute college kids falling foul to said animal attacks and possibly becoming one of the animals themselves. There’s a definite Werewolf vibe going on here. I’m partial to the classic monsters so I’m hoping for a bit of Lon Chaney action! But it may be something else big and gnarly with teeth!
What ever it is, it better not get in the Impala! We know how Dean feels about dogs in the car! Heh.
In the Preview clip we see the college kids videoing a crime scene where Sam and Dean arrive to question the cops, flashing their FBI badges and using the names, Rose and Hudson – nice Gunners shout out! Man, I’m loving the return of the rock aliases.
A Jacob Carter has been found behind his apartment block, in pieces I assume. The witness, his neighbour says she heard some kind of growl like a Coyote. Dean, “Awesome.”
And that’s it fans! There’s really not a lot to go on. The vibe is, we’re going to get a fair bit of the college kids and Sam and Dean mostly unwittingly captured on tape and that we the viewer, will spend the bulk of the 42 minutes within the world captured on the video camera. I know the Js were really excited about this one and not just because it meant they got some time off!
