Happy New Year, dear readers! When better to finish our retrospecive on Supernatural's 10th season than the time of year that's filled with reflection on the past and plans for moving forward? What made you happiest about season ten? Here are my picks for it's Hits and Misses!
Hit: Crazy Cain
Quite simply: Cain was an incredible character in every scene. The moment of Cain walking through the prison to execute the inmates was one of the most visually impressive Supernatural scenes: rattling keys, footsteps along the yellow lines, thrumming music and then the security footage… amazing.
Miss: Hannah’s Family
Probably a nitpick – but this was unnecessary background on an already unneeded, too present character. Boo.
Hit: Sam Saves Dean
Maybe Dean’s time as a demon was shortchanged, but that didn’t make the kidnapping and rescuing by Sam any less sweet. Or, you know, terrifying with all that axe-wielding! Still, good times.
Miss: Killing Death
Overly convoluted – surely there was a better way to handle this?
Hit: 200th Episode
It was a sweet, fun, tribute to the fans and the show. What more could we ask for than that?
Miss: Crowley’s Mommy Manipulations
Once upon a time, Hell was ruled by a diabolical King…and then his mother appeared and he was so easily fooled it became ridiculous.
Hit: Vengeance on the Stynes
The Stynes were a weakly delivered family, in my opinion. However – the way Dean obliterated them was magnificent. Let it be known: Don’t mess with the Winchester family.
Miss: Grand Coven
Missed opportunity…there was definite potential for something there….
Ended too soon? Yes. But when our Black-Eyed Dean was on, boy was he on. In fact, MoC afflicted-Dean was very well delivered overall. It couldn’t go on forever, but watching Dean drift into darkness was an interesting, if alarming, trip.
Miss: Angel Round-Up
