Everything we know about Supernatural season 14 episode 4!

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!

The Morning After

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.        

NOW - Dean walks with Sam down a narrow stairway in the bunker.  He's looking slightly Han Solo-ish in a white button down shirt with an open black vest.  He's already divested himself of the cap, coat, and suit jacket that Michael favored.  He's talking about what a nightmare it is - but as the conversation continues, we realize that he's not referring to his being possessed but rather to Sam's beard.  "Some people like it!" Sam responds with a smile.  "No," Dean replies.  "No one does."  Then Sam focuses on his true concern:  the fact that Dean didn't talk much on their drive back from Duluth.  Dean says that Michael bailed and that his memory is blank.  It was a blink from saying "yes" to going through the doors of the chapel.  But now it's good to be home - he cuts off what he was saying as he sees the interior of the bunker filled with busy people on phones, on computers, going over lore, discussing strategy.  His home is filled with strangers.  One man approaches, just looking for a moment before Dean says, "I'm not Michael."  The man assures him that Chief had filled them in and walks on.  "Chief?" questions Dean.  "I've asked them to stop calling me that," replies Sam.  Jack enters and sees Dean;  Cas follows him.  Their reunion is quiet and understated; Jack gives Dean a brief hug; Castiel's eyes are glowing with happiness.  Dean says he wants a shower and exits the room after reassuring Sam once more that he's OK.  Sam looks concerned.  He tells Jack and Castiel that Bobby and Mary are still in Duluth burning werewolf bodies.  Sam is concerned that Nick has left and isn't answering Cas' phone calls.  "How is he really?" Cas wonders about Dean.  Dean walks into his room and closes the door behind him.  He crosses to to the bed, removing the vest, then ripping the dress shirt off with an expression of revulsion.  He crosses to the little sink with the mirrored medicine cabinet above it and catches sight of a mark on his upper arm.  He pushes the sleeve of his teeshirt out of the way, revealing two thick, raised scars, lying end to end.  

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?”

Supernatural #SPNNJ 2018 Convention– Secaucus, NJ 

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!
