Season Three Title Sequence
This title sequence deviated slightly from the first two, but many elements were still the same. The Key of Solomon pentagram appears after the white light explosion followed by thee "SUPERNATURAL" text in pitted silver, white, blue and gray tones. The Key of Solomon is a grimoire, a book on magic, attributed to, of course, King Solomon. Such books typically include instructions on how to create magical objects like talismans and amulets, how to perform magical spells, charms and divination and also how to summon or invoke supernatural entities such as angels, spirits, and demons. Many editions were written in Latin, Sam's second language, and date from the 1600's.
The Key of Solomon Book I contain conjurations, invocations and curses to summon and constrain spirits of the dead and demons, forcing them to do the operator's will. Try as I might, I could not find the meaning of this exact pentacle. However, I did find a similar pentacle in an online version of the book depicting the scorpion. It was the fifth pentacle of Mars, â€œWrite thou this pentacle upon virgin parchment, because it is terrible unto the demons, and at its sight and aspect they will obey thee, for they cannot resist its presenceâ€. Certainly a good invocation if you looking to save your brother from hellâ€¦.the entire theme of season three.
The image quickly changes now to silver lettering with rising whitish clouds, maybe an ethereal essence of a long lost spirit. The mist, tinged with a maroon hue, changing into the cold of blue. The addition of the red tones adds an additional level of malevolence we associate with bruising, blood or death,
The cool colors of blue and grey are used to give the cold feeling of the dead of space, the cosmos erupting in a burst of cold colors expanding into a vast void. No doubt the abstract perception of space and time, that only heaven or hell could represent. As this series based some of it's mythology on Milton's Paradise Lost, this would aptly fit into his poetic imagery.
For me, this is the best title sequence of the series. Love the mystery of space and the concept of â€˜between' worlds. The â€˜unreality' of the brother's reality seems the strongest for me with this sequence.
