The Boys Are Back in Town

(Probably Time To Flee)

EPISODE TEN:

While true of many episodes of Supernatural, in particular episode ten (often a hiatus episode) likes to ride the emotions rollercoaster. Over the years this has been the episode to twist the knife on some seriously heart wrenching storylines – be it through resolution or devastation - or something in between:

REVEAL/TWIST? New group of heroes in town – and they kick it in the ass. Hard.

Many times the comeback from a mid-hiatus; episode ten is traditionally an episode that warrants revival and processing of what just happened; if not at least an exclamation of “what!? Don’t leave me there!” Most devastating – and still standout after all these years – in my mind? Dean’s confessions of Hell. Of course, the end of “Death’s Door” is a pretty close rival. How about you?
