Supernatural: Erasing the Past, Present and Future

Editor's Note: Gail Z. Martin, a Supernatural fan and member of The WFB Family, recognized a very interesting theme ("thread" to those of you who follow my "Threads" review series) within the season 12 stories. As she considered her idea, a pattern for the entire Supernatural series emerged. Please join me in welcoming her and enjoy reading the persuasive case she presents for a strategy that has been used by every Winchester, Castiel and many of our favorite Supernatural characters! - Nightsky

 

I’m a big fan of Nightsky’s ‘Threads’ feature. As she and I were tweeting about the show, I brought up a ‘thread’ of my own that she hadn’t mentioned, so she invited me to write about it.

The theme is ‘erasure’, as in wiping something out completely - in some cases, as if it never existed. Erasure seems to be a big undercurrent in Season 12, although when I started to think about it, I see examples throughout the series. Whenever erasure happens or is attempted, it never goes well.

Threads! Supernatural 12.15 "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell"

The Morning After

I thoroughly enjoyed “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell”. Happily, I was totally engrossed in the Sam and Dean portion of the story. The hellhound special effects, the mystery surrounding the hound’s target, then the intended victim’s claim to not have sold her soul all kept me intrigued. Dean and Crowley’s conversations and the Impala talks between Sam and Gwen were also layered with implications for their characters and the show so I was emotionally and intellectually engaged.

Let's Speculate: Supernatural 12.15 "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell"

Hellhounds!  Angels on the hunt!  Men of Letters drama! 
 
This is your friendly neighborhood WFB admin filling in this week for Bookdal, who was thankfully spared from having to recap this glacially paced, completely awkward, totally filler episode.  I’ve tried to keep tonights spec to the recap, but if you see small outbursts here and there, it’s just because I couldn’t take it anymore. That and my DVR cut out in a couple of parts.  
 
So here we go into that murky abyss of “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell.”  

Alice's Review: Supernatural 12.14 - "The Raid" aka "In Defense Of..."

The roller coaster ride continues.  This week we're up, and suddenly there's a potential thrill to this ride.  The question is, will we hit bottom again next week like we did last week?  Personally, I don't care.  I want to hang onto this little gem for a while and not let go.
