Supernatural Season 10

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Brother's Keeper"

    .
    Alright, there we have it. The finale is behind us. I enjoyed it, if that is the right word for it, and now we have again "Hellatus" as the fans of Supernatural call it. I had some trouble deciding what to pick as a video of the week but after searching for a bit I found two possibilities. Both videos are in black and white, which I thought was fitting because of the "new bad" we got in the form of "the Darkness".  So I decided to make this week special and chose both.
  • Alice's Review: Supernatural 10.23, "Brother's Keeper" aka Sam and Dean Broke the World Again?

    Sam, Dean, what did you do? Did you go and break the world again?

    I gotta say, if "Brother's Keeper" did one thing (and trust me, it did many things), it gave us enough possibilities to keep us all happily speculating and theorizing for the next five months (yes, October is that far away). Far more possibilities have been raised than last year and I was freaking out this time last year. The whole can of mythological worms was opened, and between this and all the alternate dimension time travel dynamics I've had to absorb with "The Flash" finale, my mind is already blown.

    Every character was on their A game and no wonder, because you won't get a better writer than the Carver. He is the man and gave us a chunk to take in. The direction and visual effects were stunning too, but do you expect any less from director Phil Sgriccia and Mark Maloche's VFX team? They brought their best, that's for sure. When given good stuff the actors really shine too, and Jensen, Jared, Misha, and Mark just killed it. The best outing from the whole ensemble we've had in a long time.

    I wouldn't say the episode was perfect though. The first 15 minutes were a bit slow for me, save the first scene with Sam and Castiel. The rest of the episode more than made up for it though. But enough rhetoric, let's just jump to the burning questions.
  • Let's Discuss: The Ethical Dilemmas in Supernatural's "Brother's Keeper"

    The day after we were all stunned by Supernatural’s season 10 finale, “Brother’s Keeper”, I started to write the “Threads” review that you were probably expecting. That draft lists all the predictions we got right and all the theories that went wrong. It explores the repercussions of pursuing the cure and the mind-blowing shift in the central, classic theme of the show (that frankly I can’t wait to discuss!). We’ll get to all that in due time. We have five months to analyze and speculate.  I realized that those questions were not the questions we should be considering now, though. After we have all been so deeply affected by such tender words from Sam and heartbreaking looks from Dean, and such shocking consequences of their love, we need to explore what we saw, felt and thought during this hour of masterful television.
  • Supernatural Review of 10.23 "My Brother's Keeper"

    It’s all about the love one is willing to sacrifice in order to keep that one true love. Besides their brotherly love, there has always been one love that the Winchester brothers were willing to die for. There is one love both brothers would sacrifice each other for. There is one love motivating all that the brothers do. This is their love for the good and the innocent of the world and this love requires their wholehearted commitment and protection.
  • Let’s Speculate: Supernatural 10.23 “Brothers Keeper”

    Summary:  This episode was written by Jeremy Carver and directed by Phil Sgriccia. The episode follows Sam’s quest to save Dean and Castiel, Crowley, and Rowena’s journey in casting the spell that will cure the Mark of Cain.  
  • Supernatural 10.22 "The Prisoner" - WINCHESTERED!

    After the extreme upset and total heartache at the loss of Charlie, I was very apprehensive for episode 22.  We are heading for the season finale, and things were bound to heat up for Dean and Sam, but I still was not ready for what happened in this tense, riveting, fast-paced episode. At the end of it, I was NUMB. Speechless, distressed, freaked out. I can safely say episode 22 left me WINCHESTERED!
  • Preview Clip: Supernatural Episode 10.23, Season Finale

    Here it is, the preview clip for tomorrow night's season closer.  It's Sam and Rowena and it really doesn't tell you much other than Rowena better get a bullet in the brain when this is all over (sorry, did I say that out loud?).  Anyway, we'll know for sure what's going on tomorrow! 



  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look: "Supernatural" 10.22 "The Prisoner"

    The words prison and prisoner invoke strong imagery.
  • Supernatural Trivia 10.22 - "The Prisoner"

    OMG! Dean! Yikes!

    Between telling Sam it should have been Sam that died, his killing spree and kicking Castiel's ass, I would say the MARK has begun to take over.

    Good thing Castiel hid the First Blade.

    While we wait for the big finale, want to play some Trivia?
  • TV Fanatic Roundtable: Supernatural 10.22 - "The Prisoner"

    This week is quite a special TV Fanatic Roundtable for us at the Winchester Family Business.  Nightsky has officially joined our panel!  So now the team is an even split of myself and Nightsky representing The Winchester Family Business and Sean McKenna and Carla Day representing TV Fanatic.  


    We had a lot more to discuss about "The Prisoner."  We all seemed to be big fans of the Sam and Crowley scene, and three of panelists (yes I was different) saw what was happening with the Dean and Castiel confrontation.  Plus we all discussed whether we think we've seen the last of the Stynes and if the MOC will be gone by the end of the season (we all hope so). 

  • Thoughts on Supernatural 10.22: "The Prisoner"

    Prisoner: noun – "individual who is or feels restrained or trapped by a situation or set of circumstances." Not only does this word aptly define all three of our main characters (and then some) at this point in the game, but it is also profoundly appropriate for the viewer this week- so captivated by the intensity and emotional happenings that I was caught holding my breath on every occasion I was gasping. Shall we relive the highlights and heartstoppers?

  • Threads: Supernatural 10.22 "The Prisoner"

    What can I say about “The Prisoner”? I can’t honestly say I “liked” this episode. “Like” doesn’t describe my emotional or intellectual response to it. It was intense, but even that doesn’t seem to be the right description. It elicited fear, foreboding and dread. I was tense for the entire episode, and afterward I felt traumatized. My body ached and my jaw was locked. Some fans said they were in shock from what they had seen.  I didn’t feel shock necessarily.

  • Supernatural 10.21 "Dark Dynasty" - A Horrible Legacy

    Editor's Note: Occasionally an episode strikes us so deeply that we have to find an outlet for our shock. "Dark Dynasty" was that kind of episode, especially for Winchester Obsessed, who told us "I was so shocked and horrified and saddened at Charlie's death that I immediately wanted to write about it, but with the next episode looming, I thought there would not be enough time. Still, I could not NOT write." Please welcome our Guest Writer who shares the very personal experience of watching and coping with "Dark Dynasty". Did you have a similar experience?

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Dark Dynasty"

    aka this is not right.

    I am at a loss for words. As you can guess it was pretty easy to choose the topic of this video of the week. While "Dark Dynasty" was entertaining and I enjoyed it quite a bit, the ending left me speechless and quite literally horrified. That is when things broke apart.
  • Thoughts on Supernatural 10.21: "Dark Dynasty"

    There isn’t much in the way of coherent thought after an ending like this one. Aside from the image of Charlie’s prone body half-in, half-out of the bathtub, well, the mind is mostly blank. "Dark Dynasty" was all about the family unit, in one way or another and the emotions – and thereby actions – that people are driven to as a result.
  • Alice's Review: Supernatural 10.21, "Dark Dynasty" aka Um...Just...No

    Um…just…no.

    I’m trying like mad to suppress my outrage, the bitter screaming fan girl right now, so I can deliver a more balanced review.  It’s awfully hard.  I’m insulted.  Just plain and simple.  I’m insulted that Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming are still permitted, after a wealth of pitiful, poorly written, canon trashing scripts, to write for this show and continue to do further damage.  I’m insulted that anyone thought that “Dark Dynasty’s” twist of events brought any excitement or shock value.  I’m insulted that there’s little respect anymore for the legacy of this show.  Most of all, I’m just insulted that my hour was wasted on this crap. 

    (Deep breath…happy place, happy place…everything will be okay…)  There.  Better now.  Time to digress and break out for you my likes and dislikes of the episode with all four letter explicatives removed.   It’s better this way.
