Threads: Supernatural 12.11 "Regarding Dean"

The Morning After

Emotional masterpiece. Totally wrecked me. Blown away. These were the types of reactions expressed by viewers after seeing Meredith Glynn’s “Remembering Dean”.  It was a very emotional hour for most of the Supernatural family. Fans were left in puddles of empathy after witnessing Dean and Sam’s pain - Dean from losing himself to the ravages of a fading existence, and Sam from losing his brother one memory at a time. The power of the episode was once again due to the unbelievable performances of Jensen and Jared.

Let's Speculate: Supernatural 12.11 "Regarding Dean"

This week’s episode, “Regarding Dean,” was written by Meredith Glynn. The episode’s teaser focuses on the Winchester’s history with witches and it begins with Dean chasing a guy through the forest, an injured guy who is on the phone with someone. The guy tells the person on the phone to go. When Dean catches up to him, the guy is leaning against a tree. A sigil lights up the tree and the guy knocks Dean back.

Dean wakes up the next morning with a bunny nibbling next to him.

Threads: Supernatural 12.10 "Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets"

They say “Still waters run deep”.  That adage certainly applies to Supernatural’s “Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets”. Such an understated title for Lily’s life being completed destroyed by an obsessed, evil supernatural being and her future being completely dictated by her obsession with revenge!  

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. As with its title, on the surface the story seemed straight-forward and simplistic but once I started analyzing its underlying messages, I found layer upon layer of character development, symbolism and foreshadowing. This turned out to be the longest Threads analysis of the season thus far, so settle in and enjoy!

On the Road to Becoming a Woman of Letters

One of the things that truly drew me to Supernatural in the first place was the way the Winchesters wanted to make their world a better place. Sam and Dean do what they do to make other people's lives safer and happier and better. They do what they do to make a difference. They do what they do to make an impact on the wider community---even if they don't receive any recognition or compensation or reward for what they do day in and day out. The Winchester brothers have been heroes to me for as long as I've been watching the show.

Thoughts on Supernatural 12.10: "Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets"

Point for point, this episode had a bit going for it in the back half: characters, actors, history. On the other hand, some interactions were lacking overall. Bringing the boys back together after so long separated to an intriguing piece of Castiel’s history that also foreshadows the future in vague ways. Yet that made for an interesting episode nevertheless.
