I’m just not sure what it is when they do a “Wayward Sisters” themed episode. The storylines are there, the actors are there, but there’s something that’s not grabbing my attention. This week was especially disappointing. Once again, the episode came with promise and fell with a thud.
Don’t get me wrong, “The Scar” wasn’t a total waste. I didn’t hate it. But it wasn’t remotely close to a brilliant episode. It moved some things forward, created new mysteries, but fell on old habits that left the whole thing boring and predictable. For me, it fell slightly short of serviceable.
I couldn’t wait to dive into this article. First, I knew that the fan videos would be different and fun this time. Second, it is always nice to show some new sides of the fandom. The word for this article is of course "cartoon" but in true Scooby fashion it is also so much more. We have a fan-made introduction to "ScoobyNatural" the video game and also we are toying a little bit with legos Supernatural style. I also found an incredible mystery that ties together Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! and Supernatural (or was it just a lucky coincidence?)! See what I mean in the trivia below!
Shocking. That’s the word that comes to mind to describe Supernatural’s "The Scar". I had not been spoiled about Yadira Guevera-Prip’s return as Kaia, so our first glimpse of her in Castiel’s mind sweep of Dean prompted a mouth gaping, sudden inhaling, gasp of shock. That was only nine minutes into the episode! The tension didn’t let up from there. My entire body stiffened when Jack’s teenage delirium pushed him to within feet of the bunker’s door, thinking that running away would solve his problems. Dean’s over-the-top hostility and strain maintained the uneasy atmosphere of impending doom in the episode, until the tension was shattered by the crack of Jody’s arm being broken and her cries of agony. Anyone else cringe and yell out “Not again!”? Then, just to twist the knife a little deeper, Jack starts coughing up blood. “Now what??” was all I could say as my headache set in and I collapsed back from the edge of the seat on which I had been perched.
Starting tonight, ”Supernatural” will have a new partner in the CW Thursday night lineup. Here at The Winchester Family Business, we thought it would be fun to get to know “Legacies,” the latest installment in “The Vampire Diaries“ franchise.
For those that remember that poignant series finale of “The Vampire Diaries,” the one that gave closure for the main characters, you may have noticed that clever opening left by creator Julie Plec for another story or two to tell. Last season, when “The Vampire Diaries” spinoff, “The Originals,” was coming to a close, Plec had the ideal pitch for The CW, who was looking for another legacy show for it’s lineup. What if Hope Mikaelson came to Mystic Falls? Better yet, how about she goes to the school for supernatural children that her own father helped create with his generous donation, The Salavatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted?
Back in July at Comic Con, I got to speak to executive producers Julie Plec and Brett Matthews, as well as lead actors Danielle Rose Russell (Hope Mikaelson) and Matt Davis (Alaric Saltzman). They were all very enthusiastic about this new opportunity, which Matt Davis refused to call another spinoff. He called “Legacies” part three of a trilogy. After all, just because two brothers named Salvatore were no longer in town, it doesn’t mean that crazy crap stopped happening in Mystic Falls, nor all the traditions that the town clung onto so fondly. But is this just another rehash of “The Vampire Diaries” or is it darker like “The Originals?”
It was Supernatural’s 100th Convention, but for my daughter Allyson and me it was our first Supernatural con. We’ve attended other cons from a different series but never Supernatural. I will do a little comparison between the cons after telling you all about Supernatural's!
