Soulless Sam

  • It's a Supernatural Life - Part 4


    Are you ready for part three of the Christmas story? If you missed the opening chapters of this year's Christmas in the bunker with the Winchesters, you'll want to go back to read Part 1Part 2 and Part 3 before continuing. After this we have still one part to go.

     The original idea for this story was to make it ready before Christmas day but unfortunately that didn't come to pass. Sometimes I plan too many things to do and I realize that there is only so much you can do in a day. I didn't have a holiday (vacation time) to finish it but so much was already done. I decided just to relax, keep the idea for the story in mind and slowly let it reveal itself. That was good as I could fully focus on it and write all that was needed. So finally we have arrived at the part that is my favorite.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Supernatural Hiatus Hunting - 6.13: "Unforgiven"

    Drama, Drama, Drama! Let’s take a look at two very different perspectives on a very intriguing episode from the season six trick bag – Unforgiven.
  • The Season Six Enigma of Sam Winchester's Hair

    It's that special time of year again!  Hellatus starts taking it's toll so I get cheeky, bored, and carry my Supernatural obsession to disturbing new levels.  I take precious time to pour over all the visual evidence that Sam Winchester's hair has evolved into its own being.  Heck, it's an actual supporting player by now!  It's become as vital to "Supernatural" as the Impala and tacky motel rooms.  

    Just like all other seasons, the results from my study are quite fascinating.  For those not familiar, this is my third "Enigma" installment.  The first one went on to be one of the most legendary articles ever on this site.  The second one, season five, didn't do too shabby either.  Now I take on season six.  I was not prepared for the hefty task this season had to offer, that's for sure.  

  • Soulless Sam - The Real S6 Enigma, Part Two

    Dean is in full panic mode concerning Sam. He discusses the situation with Bobby, considering either walking away from Sam or shooting him. He is uncomfortable, anxious, and agitated. Sam is not and has not behaved like his brother since he came back into Dean's life. He watched Sam stand idly by as Castiel tortured the young boy, Aaron, to discover that Balthazar had purchased his soul. Sam hadn't simply not raised a fuss, he had stared in open fascination. It was one major red flag for Dean that something was more than wrong with Sam...
  • Soulless Sam - The Real S6 Enigma, Part One

    "Ever since I came back, I am a better hunter than I've ever been! Nothing scares me anymore because I can't feel it. I don't know what's wrong with me. I think I need help." Soulless Sam---You Can't Handle the Truth
    Soulless Sam was perhaps the most daring aspect of Season 6. To turn a main character completely around is always risky. No other element seemed to be more polarizing. He was also perhaps one of the most unpredictable and puzzling characters the show has ever had. What made Soulless Sam a success can be attributed equally to both the writing and Jared Padalecki's outstanding portrayal.
