THE SCRIPT

1Dedit

 

 

However, Jack renewed our faith in him and in the underlying theme of Supernatural’s family bonds.

But that was not what made this script significant.

Robert Berens gave us a glimpse of something seldom seen in the media: Native American Culture.

Except for a few early episodes, Indigenous’ cultures and mythologies were rarely tapped for Supernatural inspiration.

With the demise of Derek Swan, the story turned to Kaia, a Dreamwalker,

a young woman of colour, perhaps of Native American ancestry.

Berens illuminated an important issue in our society, and a particularly hot issue in Canada.

What more can you ask of a mid season finale?  Oh, why yes…one could ask for excellence in the production category…
