  • Retrospective Thoughts on Supernatural 12.16: "Ladies Drink Free"

    One of the lastSupernatural episodes of season 12 that was more formulaic and standard MOTW than big-picture focused, "Ladies Drink Free"was a decent easement back after the March mini-hiatus. Even in retrospect, the episode offered entertainment and drama without too much heady overflow in advance of what the rest of the season would bring.

  • In Defense of Supernatural Season 12, Part Two

    Part 1 of "Defense of Supernatural Season 12" makes the case that the return of Sam and Dean's loving relationship and the harmonious blending of the season's arcs added up to one of the best years in the Supernatural series.  In Part 2, Samandean addresses the other major characters and storylines, and how they contributed, or detracted, from season 12's enjoyment.
  • Threads: Supernatural 12.02 "Mamma Mia"

    A person’s ultimate opinion of an episode depends entirely on what they wanted to get out of it. I wouldn’t term that expectations per se. As much as that person might hope, need or desire to see something, that doesn’t mean necessarily that they expected to see it. For example, I had three things I desperately wanted to see in the wrap up of Supernatural's season 11 cliffhanger tragedies:

    1. Sam freed from his captors
    2. An epic Sam & Dean reunion. I wanted to see the wave of relief and confusion wash over Sam when he saw Dean was alive, followed by an embrace that reflected that flood of emotion
    3. An epic Sam and Mary introduction befitting a twelve year build-up of Mary’s guilt and obvious protectiveness of her sons (ala “Home”), the boys' idealization of their mother and Sam’s emotional void at not having ever known her.

    How did “Mamma Mia” come through for me?
