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.

Thoughts on Supernatural 12.17: The British Invasion

This was a mixed bag of emotions and events leaving "The British Invasion" to rank somewhere in the middle as an episode. While there were some interesting new pieces of information and scenes about characters including the BMoL, and some fine humour from Lucifer, a collection of, well, near-ridiculousness (unintended, presumably) were a bit too much in this viewer's opinion. So, let’s take a look.

The Morning After

In the WFB writing team’s “Impressions of Supernatural Season 12” discussion a few weeks ago, I categorized the show this year as “mysterious and surprising”. True to form, episode 12.17 “British Invasion” was full of surprises. Some of the unexpected events and revelations were surprises to the characters, while others shocked the viewers.
