Top 10 Clues to Supernatural Season 13 and Beyond

As the Supernatural fandom eagerly awaits (and simultaneously dreads) the final chapters in season 12’s story, we have a one week break to consider what heartbreak might be in store for our heroes this year. A recent Supernatural convention participant reported that Jensen said this finale will be the hardest he and Jared have ever had to film. I don’t know about you, but my heart gets tied up in knots just thinking what that could mean!

Supernatural Inspiration: Leave the World Better Than You Found It

“You know, I was thinking about what Bishop said. About... What do you think out legacy is gonna be? When we're gone, I mean, after all the stuff we've done, you think folks will remember us? You know, like, a hundred years from now?”

Dean makes this statement at the end of “The  Memory Remains,” and it has profound meaning. We all want to be remembered. We all want to know that over time---after we're no longer here---that we'll have left something behind that people will remember us for. It's human nature. We seek to find that meaning of life and need to build up our legacies. We all want to be the one that says proudly “Kilroy Was Here.” However, no matter how much money we make, no matter how many experiences we have, no matter the prestige we earn, at some point, we will die and there will only be fleeting memories left behind.

And so, Sam answers his question by stating, “Well, I mean... guys like us, we're not exactly the type of people they write about in history books, you know? But the people we saved, they're our legacy. And they'll remember us and then I guess... we'll eventually fade away, too. That's fine, because we left the world better than we found it, you know.”

Thoughts on Supernatural 12.18: "The Memory Remains"

Okay, so initially, I was skeptical. I mean, that goat-headed creature in the promos was a tad low-rent compared to some of the things we’ve seen from the team at Supernatural. And I wondered if now was really the best time for the boys to be engaged in this kind of one-off hunt, given all the exciting plotlines we have dangling in the water. Well, I have never been so happy to be wrong. "The Memory Remains" was fantastic! Fresh, engaging, emotional and fun too- the perfect timing for this piece of the puzzle to be laid.

Alice's Review: Supernatural 12.18 - "The Memory Remains" aka "Old School"

Whew!  What a relief.  I was really starting to think that “Supernatural” had forgotten what it was truly about.  Thank you John Bring and Phil Sgriccia for reminding everyone.
While I'm not going to go as far as calling "The Memory Remains" a series classic or even a totally brilliant hour, it was a most welcome hour.  The last few weeks have been disconcerting so for this episode to address some of those issues itself makes it extraordinary.  Who knows, I might even watch this again someday.  There are very few episodes in this season where I can say that.  

Let's Speculate: Supernatural 12.18 "The Memory Remains"

“The Memory Remains” was written by John Bring and directed by Phil Sgriccia. The episode opens in Wisconsin with a bunch of young adults around a campfire. Two young guys are talking, kidding each other, when one of them leaves to head out.
