On May 30, 1964 a future King was born in London, England.
His name is Mark Sheppard.
Yes, we are talking about you, Mark.
Today we celebrate your 56th birthday!
Supernatural has resonated with many people because of the timelessness of many of its themes like brotherly love, sacrifice, and courage against unbeatable odds. Recently, I was thinking about one of my favorite books, Watership Down by Richard Adams, and I was shocked to discover that there were several similarities between the book and the show. Contrary to what I first thought when I heard the title, the book has nothing to do with sinking boats on the ocean! Instead, it is set in England and is a tale of rabbits who take an epic journey from their warren to establish a new home of their own. Their journey is fraught with dangers, even after they find a perfect spot for their new warren. Published in 1972, It is a fascinating mix of realism with fantasy since the rabbits talk and have their own language and mythology. When I first read it in high school, I was immediately reminded of Pilgrim's Progress and Exodus from the Bible, but, now that I'm a fan of Supernatural, I saw numerous parallels between our show and this beloved book. (Readers are reminded that there will be references to the book in this article that may spoil certain events in the book.)
The main characters in Watership Down are brothers - Fiver and Hazel. Fiver is the younger brother, but, unlike Sam, he is the runt of the litter, and, even when grown, is smaller and weaker than the others. Like Sam, however, he has visions of the future, terrible visions of bloodshed and slaughter, visions which can be physically debilitating. The leader of the warren doesn't believe him, but his brother does, and together they guide a small group of rabbits out of their warren to safety.
Hi, everyone! I'm back with another Top Ten Supernatural list! This time I'm going with my favourite undercover disguises. With there being so many disguises over these past fifteen seasons, I chose my list by picking the first ten that came to me. I figured these impacted and affected me the most.
Now before you read my list, write down what you would pick. What ten disguises do you think of first?
I don’t know why I love this episode so much. It makes me smile, even though it has one of the creepiest stories in the series. An eerie family painting that comes to life and kills owners in their sleep. This should have been a spine chilling mess given the premise alone, but it was anything but. It was brisk, witty, fun, romantic, had an unpredictable ghost story, and was creepy as hell, too.
May 18, 2020. The day that Supernatural was supposed to end. The day the final episode of season 15 was scheduled to air. The day I expected to be in Lawrence, Kansas, touring the city where the story began, commemorating with friends the end of an era, and the end of a chapter in my life. That's what we all thought was going to happen today, but life has a way of changing our plans without our permission.
So we have a "stay of execution," as WFBFamily member Dean's Not Fine tweeted this morning, and I'm perfectly okay with that. More than okay, I'm greatly relieved. It means I don't yet have to deal with the reality of Sam and Dean's story ending.
If I think about it, I guess I understand and even accept that when the show actually does end I will no longer be able to watch the Winchesters drive the back roads of Americana fighting monsters. I will miss them deeply, but I know they'll live on in my heart. What scares me to my core is not knowing if they'll have peace when they are done. Peace as I define it. Peace that makes them and me happy. While I'm sad that their story might end (I say "might" because we all hope there will a Supernatural movie one day), I'm more worried about how it will end than when it will end.
