The Boys Are Back in Town

(Probably Time To Flee)


A breath pause and some brother time, or a serious plot development – Supernatural's seventh episode each season has an either/or approach on these moments. Regardless of which way it goes, episode seven has given us some truly great scenes through the series:


"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” ― Sun Tzu


For this time around I chose to take a completely different point of view, or idea, for my writing. When I watched the three videos that are shown below, one mutual thing from the music hit me. Their music was like charging into battle. Two of them have the same music, scenes and characters that fit the mythology of the season. I could imagine old battlefields with opposite sides running forward, first slowly but then accelerating to full speed before clashing to one another. Then the fight would start - swings of swords or shots of muskets, shield blocks or shots of arrows, toss of spears and rams of horses. It was easy to decide that my word for this article would be war, and choosing the videos with appropriate battle music was fitting. War is not pretty.

Though it feels like so long ago, it wasn’t that many moons back that we watched as Castiel confronted his own likeness in an inky abyss while Sam and Dean struggled to overcome grief and loss in the same breath as trying to teach a newly born Nephilim the ins and outs of humankind and hunting. ‘The Big Empty’ was emotional, exciting and certainly unique when it originally aired, and in the grand scheme of season thirteen, on second viewing offers some familiar refrains and perspectives as well.

Editor's Note: The Winchester Family Business is proud to feature another talented artist in our series "Inspired by Supernatural"! Members of the SPNFamily all around the world express their love for Supernatural in many different ways, according to their personal talents. Some write, others create videos, jewelry, collectible figures or larger crafts. Janie is a portrait artist from Russia who sketches beautiful drawings of Supernatural's actors. I first became aware of Janie's work earlier this year when she shared them with The Winchester Family Business on Twitter. Here is her story, together with a sampling of some of her best work.   

I've been drawing since I was a kid. My old drawings were completely different from the way they look now. 

Welcome back to Supernatural's "Memorable Moments" series! For 13.06, "Tombstone", I once again put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from the episode. The list varies from episode to episode depending on what transpired.  I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be!

"Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”  ― Jim Rohn
I love westerns. My favorite is actually the Dollars trilogy - Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965), The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Sergio Leone, 1966), Once Upon a Time in the West (Sergio Leone, 1968), The Magnificent Seven (John Sturges, 1960) and The Searchers (John Ford, 1956). Ennio Morricone's music on most of them is the music for westerns for me. As we have a certain western episode on our hands, I decided to remind you about the other western episode we had and I liked. My chosen word for this episode was happiness because westerns and movies are Dean's happy place too.
