Supernatural Season 10

  • Alice's Review: Supernatural 10.18, "Book of the Damned" aka Behind Those Blue Eyes

    “No one know what’s its like to be the bad man, to be the sad man, Behind Blue Eyes…”

    I’ll throw this out there right now, my inner Sam girl is having full blown seizures of happiness right now.  There are some things that should have me hating this episode, or at least question its intent, but honestly, I loved all of it.  I don’t know how, but I did.  Perhaps because the writing was fluid, or that the pacing was enjoyable, or the direction was some of the best damn stuff we’ve seen in a while.  Maybe it was movement on the Mark of Cain storyline, or that all of geekdom exploded when Castiel and Charlie finally met, or the fact that TPTB forked out for a totally awesome Who song on a decimated classic rock budget.  Whatever it was, I’m happy.  
  • Let’s Speculate: Supernatural 10.18 “Book of the Damned”

    Summary:  This episode was written by Robbie Thompson and directed by PJ Pesce. The episode revolves around the discovery of an ancient magic book by Charlie and the search for Castiel’s grace.  
  • Supernatural “Inside Man” - The Perfect Episode

    Editor's Note: Supernatural occasionally inspires a fan to want to capture their thoughts and feelings about an episode. The following review is one such example. Please welcome Winchester Obsessed, who is a very happy fan, anxious for hiatus to be over!

    How is family defined in Supernatural---and how do we see that definition within "Inside Man?"
  • Threads: Supernatural 10.17 "Inside Man"

    I loved “Inside Man”. The writing was sharp and the plots got some traction. Even though I have truly enjoyed most of season 10, this episode tugged at my heartstrings and pulled me in so deep that I felt the “oneness” I have so often felt with Supernatural. I fell in love with the show all over again.
  • Thoughts on Supernatural 10.17: "Inside Man"

    Well, even before I saw this episode between the preview and the excited, emotional tweets exploding my phone 24 hours before I was able to watch it, I just knew it was going to be one of those gut-wrenching, heart bursting installments that would take days to recover from. In hindsight, the watered down version of Supernatural that was last week almost makes sense in lieu of "Inside Man" - our emotional drives needed to be fully stocked and loaded to handle this journey, and so did those of our writers.
  • Alice's Review: Supernatural 10.17, "The Inside Man" aka Be Still My Beating Fan Girl Heart

    Be still my beating fan girl heart. You are still alive!

    Just wow, wasn't "The Inside Man" the breath of fresh air we all desperately needed? One of the biggest disappointments I've had with season ten is that everything I watch just feels off. It's been hard to explain why, but last night reminded me why. Heart. Fun. Sentimentality. There's a certain tone that makes this show unique from all others, and the loss of that tone in recent seasons has been very disheartening. Well, last night, we were given a gift. It was a very special gift that reminded us of what this show once was. Just like Sam at the end, I had my single man tear (okay, it was more than one) going when it was all over. I haven't felt that way in ages. Thank you show.
  • Let’s Speculate: Supernatural 10.17 “Inside Man”

    Summary:  This episode was written by Andrew Dabb and brings the myth back into focus on the show.
  • Performing the Story: Supernatural 10.16 "Paint It Black"

    Another episode brought us another round of great performances. Let's take a moment to look at their contributions in this week's Performing the Story.
  • Robin's Rambles - Supernatural 10.16 - "Paint It Black"

    What an episode, huh? Beautiful nuns (one ghostly and murderous), battling bitch witches, Sam reads Italian, and a hamster in a mini ruby necklace. Then of course, we have Dean, of all people, going to confession, something that should, given his many transgressions, last years in the fess-up box and cost more Hail Marys than one man could possibly say.
  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look: Supernatural 10.16 "Paint It Black"

    “Paint It Black” is the perfect title for this week's Supernatural episode.

  • Thoughts on Supernatural 10.16: "Paint It Black"

    Alright, let’s talk about 10.16, "Paint it Black".
  • Threads: Supernatural 10.16 "Paint It Black"

    On the surface, “Paint It Black” was not a particularly intense or memorable episode. It was quieter and slower, but that’s probably okay once in a while.  Several tweeters commented that they were bored and I have to admit that it was difficult to think of anything exciting to live tweet! This story didn’t have shocking scenes or plot twists. The deaths were predictable and the climactic attack on Dean with Sam racing to save the day wasn’t particularly moving.  Upon rewatch, though, there were parallel stories and foreboding incidents that were actually rather significant. I detected clues for the rest of this season and possibly season 11! I was excited to see this second layer of meaning, and I’m anxious to share it with you!
  • Let’s Speculate: 10.16: "Paint it Black"

    Summary:  This episode was written by Ross-Leming and Buckner. The episode splits its focus between Crowley/Rowena and Sam/Dean.
  • Robin's Rambles: Supernatural 10.15 "The Things They Carried"

    This was a good, tightly written episode that I really enjoyed. That they tied it to the war and soldiers gave it added poignancy and depth.
  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look: "Supernatural" 10.15 "The Things They Carried"

    Supernatural's standalone episodes are at their best when grounded in reality.
  • Threads: The Road to Supernatural 10.15 "The Things They Carried"

    I loved “The Things They Carried”. It was intense. Too gross for my liking, but still, intense. I owed you a BIG Threads article though, so you are not going to believe what I tried to do with this article. I don’t believe it myself.
  • Alice's Review: Supernatural 10.15, "The Things They Carried," aka The Redux!

    Sammy’s going darkside, Sammy’s going darkside…

    No, you didn’t see it?  Oh, there are clues. If you squint.  Remember all the way back in “Supernatural” season three when Sam was frantic over saving Dean and ultimately couldn’t?  Remember four months later in season four, after drowning his sorrows in booze for a chunk of the summer, he’s teamed up with Ruby and channelling his inner darkside for some demon smoking mojo?  Remember how Dean at this time, at the end of season three anyway, accepted his fate?
