• Threads: Supernatural 12.20 "Twigs and Twine and Tasha Banes"

    The Morning After

    Well that was a depressing, nobody wins episode! Supernatural’s “Twigs and Twine and Tasha Banes” (“Tasha”) brought back twin hunters Alicia and Max Banes, who I have loved since their introduction in “Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox” (what’s with these LONG episode names??). I eagerly awaited their return, hoping for many years of double date hunting partnerships alongside the Winchesters brothers.

  • Supernatural Season 9: Hits and Misses - Part One

    Season 9: Hits and Misses - Part One

    Here we have it – season nine Hits and Misses: Part One. Some of the misses are a tad loose – but what can I say, I mostly enjoyed season nine. It wasn’t perfect but it wasn’t too bad. That made the Misses a little rarer to come by, so do bear with me and mind the nit-pick alerts…..

  • Threads: Supernatural Season 11 Summary and Retrospective

    As Supernatural fans already know, Supernatural is a complex drama, built over years upon a foundation of mythology and recurring themes. Its dialog is intricate, often layered with thematic threads, double meanings and foreshadowing.  The “Threads” review series closely examines these subtlties, to both more thoroughly appreciate the detail of the plots and to attempt to predict the direction the story may be going. Now that the brother's 11th year of hunting is over and we know the outcome of this season's many plot lines, we can assess how well each climax was supported or foreshadowed, and our skill at unlocking season 11's mysteries.

    The following are the season 11 threads we have been tracking. In each case, I recapped how and where the theme appeared in the season. I then compared our specualtions and the evolution of our theories to the eventual outcome of that plotline, and assessed the logic and continuity of the writers’, and the characters’, actions. Join me for a retrospective look at the themes, the Threads, of Supernatural’s season 11.
  • Let's Discuss Supernatural "The Executioner's Song" & Fan Video of the Week

    Editor's Note: In this week's Fan Video article, LK goes far beyond finding videos that interpret an episode's theme. She has done extensive biblical research and shares with us her insights on the Mark of Cain's plot line. She also tackles the confusing canon issues on whether the Mark was shared or given to Dean, the lock and key idea, Lucifer's role in the Mark and much more. Given that, I've made this a Let's Discuss article, so you can freely discuss your questions, confusion and theories. I also highly recommend the thirdvideo that is linked at the very end of the article. LK was too modest to showcase it, but it is her own creation about the MoC...and it is outstanding.   - Nightsky

    aka Cain and Abel, story about two brothers, foreshadowing and the MOC

    "8 Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.”While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.
    9 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?”
    “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
    10 The Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground." 

    - Genesis 4:8-10, New International Version (NIV)
