The Boys Are Back in Town

(Probably Time To Flee)

EPISODE NINETEEN:

Much like episode eighteen, episode nineteen is often a positivity injection of some sort as we near the pinnacle of the major plot. The pieces of the puzzle are coming together, major players begin to gather, and hope is renewed that the mission can be accomplished in one form or another.

"Your heart desire will come, but when it comes, you desire for another, and when it comes again, you still aspire for another, that shows your level of ingratitude.” ― Michael Bassey Johnson



Welcome to the SPECIAL edition of Fan Video of the Week! Because Supernatural hit the milestone of its 300th episode I decided to do something a little different. Fans were so excited about the episode that we got social media buzz going and Supernatural hit number six on the social media popularity chart for the week! Also, fans created many different projects that would be ready before and during the episode. The excitement and happiness were real and great, and being just one part of it was… something special. Maybe even a heart's desire?


So, in this article I have the best of the BEST fan videos that were made with the 300th in mind (that I have seen). Make no mistake. All these videos are great so this top 3 and the bonus extras are in this order by how they made me feel, the music and scenes they used, the story and idea that were presented - for me. It can be little things or it can be something huge but it doesn’t matter in the end. 

This is an exciting week for the #SPNFamily! Supernatural's 300th episode airs on Thursday, February 7, and the anticipation is building! Supernatural fans have been with the show every step of the way, supporting not only the show but the cast, executive team and crew as well. So of course some fans have thought of ways to celebrate the milestone in solidarity with the Supernatural creative team and fan family! Pick you favorites and join the fun!

Supernatural 14.11 "Damaged Goods" left much of the Supernatural family devastated, frantically worried about Dean. Since we can't do anything but wait and worry until we learn how Sam and Castiel will save Dean, let's lighten the mood a bit and have some Supernatural fun!

In Supernatural's 14.10 "Nihilism", the archangel Michael locked Dean into a dream world within his own mind. Thinking contentment would keep Dean pacified, Dean became the owner and bar keep at a quaint home town establishment called Rocky's Bar. This was both Dean's perfect retirement scenario and fans' dreams come true! The decor in the bar was a virtual treasure trove of call backs to earlier episodes, and Easter eggs of references that only dedicated Supernatural fans would recognize. Let's go on a virtual tour of the bar and see what we can uncover along the way! 

I've done some of the research for you, identifying obvious references and hidden gems. I also enlisted the help of Deb, @Drzyley on Twitter, to get the ball rolling on finding some Easter Eggs of earlier Supernatural episodes. The rest is up to you! I'll provide the screen shots; YOU make the connections with earlier episodes or fan insider information! Who's up for a trivia treasure hunt?

"Famously, there's not really anywhere to go after nihilism. It's not progressing toward anything, it's a statement of outrage, however brilliant.” ― Alan Moore

Prologue: I wrote this story on May 27, 2016, 2 days after the air date of the SPN Season 11 finale, “Alpha and Omega”. I felt very strongly (and I still do!) that a conversation like this should have taken place between Chuck and Castiel. After all those years of desperately searching for God, struggling with his faith and the purpose of his mission, to be given the chance to talk to his Father? Actually converse with Him, face to face? Cas deserved the opportunity, and I wanted to give it to him.

"The trickster's function is to break taboos, create mischief, stir things up. In the end, the trickster gives people what they really want, some sort of freedom.” ― Tom Robbins

When I started these articles, I really wanted to make one about Gabriel but I never thought I would have the chance. Like really, REALLY have a chance with him playing Gabriel again in the new seasons. But I should have known this is Supernatural we are talking about so Lo and Behold we got him back in season 13 in all his glory. So this article is about his former “Trickster” alias and also his real self as Gabriel.

EPISODE EIGHTEEN:

A message, a motto, hope renewed, passions reignited and missions reinforced: episode eighteen traditionally is about inspiring our boys in some way or another, be it small or grand. It’s not always a successful endeavour – but often they achieve something here – and even when they fail, something is still there to keep the flame of hope flickering for that final mission.

“For there to be betrayal, there would have to have been trust first.” ― Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Season's greetings everyone! Our mid-season episode was another holiday episode! Can you imagine that we already got two in this season? First the Halloween one and now a Christmas episode. These two have been a long time coming. We have had only two before them and those were seasons ago! I actually like holiday episodes and these we got were no exception. Also we got many references to Die Hard.  That is one of my favorite movies. I heard it is also a favorite of Jared and Jensen. The word I chose for this episode was betrayal because that theme was strong in this episode.

As a holiday treat, here are few of my favorite Michael scenes (aka hot, bad-ass and cosmic) so far. I still want to see more Michael fight scenes because his fights have been well choreographed. Something tells me my wish may come true.
