Season Two Title Sequence
No question season two's title card was all about devils and the netherworld, the white noise opening and the fiery explosion, both the most universal symbols of hell. Also a beating heart is heard at the end of the sequence. The burning flame remind us all of the deaths of Mary and Jess and indicate the pattern of nursery fires that claimed some of lives of the mother's of the â€˜special children', a theme that permeated the season.
The word â€˜SUPERNATURAL', appearing out of the bursting flames in hot yellows, instills in us a high level of energy. As the letter â€˜A' changes to a Devil's Trap pentacle and fades back into the letter, we were guaranteed that demons and monsters were on the prowl, especially the yellow-eyed Azazel.
In some title sequences the text starts and ends as a bright white light, but not here. While the sound instills in us a high level of anxiety, the extreme use of yellow warns us to look away or shield our eyes.
For me this was a high energy exciting display, loved the every growing ball of fire. I really expected a fast pace season, and I wasn't disappoint. The introduction of Sam's abilities, the special children, the development of Azazel, and the magical colt all made the title card a very good representation of the season's episodes.
