Dark Side of the Moon

The CW ©2010 The CW Network, LLC. All Rights Reserved

Dean went to hell for four months while Sam stayed on earth.  But what about heaven?  What is it like?  Who’s up there?  What goes on there while Dean and Sam fight against the Apocalypse?  Dean and Sam find out the hard way when two hunters shoot them dead in their beds.

Dean finds himself reliving some of his best memories in what he believes is a dream.  He wakes up in his car listening to “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” on the radio.  He finds a young version of Sam lighting fireworks, interacting with him as if Dean is also a kid again.

Castiel soon contacts Dean and tells him that he is in fact dead and must find Sam.  Their mission is to find Joshua in heaven’s garden, the one angel who talks to God.

Both Dean and Sam travel their way through old memories, finding out that one man’s heaven is another man’s hell, as the promo for the show goes.  Sam’s greatest memories are Dean’s childhood nightmares. 

Zachariah is after them and eventually finds and corners them in one of Dean’s memories of his mother.  They are saved by Joshua, the angel that they were looking for.

Unfortunately, Joshua has bad news.  He tells the boys that God doesn’t care about them or the Apocalypse and to stop looking for him.  After hearing this shocking news they are returned to earth, alive again.  Castiel takes the news badly, looking up and calling God a son of a bitch.  He gives Dean is amulet back.  It was an amulet given to him by Sam long ago.  Dean looks at Sam,  then tosses the amulet in the trash, signifying how Dean’s memories were meaningless to Sam. 

This episode left me with mixed feelings.  I find it hard to believe that God himself wouldn’t care about the Apocalypse.  After all, it’s in the Book of Revelations.  The episode leaves you with a feeling of loneliness and the inescapable truth that Dean and Sam are truly alone in their mission to save the world.  This sad truth is written all over Castiel’s angry and saddened face.  Sam is the only character that seems to have any hope, trying fruitlessly to rally Castiel and Dean together with him.

Jensen Ackles on Good News Week in Australia

This bit with Jensen Ackles is hilarious!  He has to answer questions from real game shows that people answered wrong.  The answers he has to choose from are outrageous.  Check it out.  Straight from Kelza101 on youtube.

Jensen Ackles on the Jimmy Kimmel Show

I’m a true blue “Acklemaniac.” This is an old interview of Jensen Ackles who plays Dean Winchester on the show Supernatural. He talks about the premise of the show and dodges the big “do you have a girlfriend?” question. Duh, if you look like that you’ve got to have a girlfriend. Or a boyfriend. But probably a girlfriend in Ackles’ case.

PS: I love how even Ackles laughs at the constant “No time for Matt Damon” joke at the end of EVERY Kimmel show.

Lucifer Rising

I have been on the edge of my seat this season as I watched the plot unfold on Supernatural. I can usually see where a story line is headed but when it comes to Supernatural, it’s not the case. Every single episode has literally had me on the verge of screaming at the screen. “No, don’t stop there!” And tonight took the cake. Sam and Dean were played by BOTH the good guys and the bad guys. Dean was tricked into believing he alone could stop the apocolypse. Sam was tricked into believing that he alone could kill Lillith and stop the apocolypse. The gap that was placed between them was what brought everything down on them. Even the phone message that Dean left for Sam was changed by Ruby. The message drove home Sam’s greatest fear – that Dean hated him and what he was and there was no turning back or redemption. They had been manipulated every step of the way. Only Castielle was honest in all of his actions, but his hands were tied by the laws of heaven. And when he finally got the guts to fight back, it was too late.

 

I really thought Dean would make it on time to stop Sam, but when I think about it further, I realize I only thought that because that would have been the “Happily Ever After” ending. It would also have been the end of the show. But with this amazing cliff hanger ending, I’m even more hooked and excited to see next season.

This entire season of Supernatural has been so well written, produced, acted, and directed. And unlike many shows out right now, Supernatural’s quality doesn’t decline with time. It takes on the attributes of a fine wine, maturing and developing, tasting sweeter with every new episode.

Waiting for next season will be painful. My imagination is going wild with what will happen next. How will the next season open? And how will Dean and Sam be able to send the Devil packing back to hell?

I only have one complaint and I’ve had it all season. Katie Cassidy should have remained in the show as Ruby. Genevieve Cortese did a find job but she couldn’t compare to Cassidy’s performance.

It will be exciting to see how the brilliant writers of Supernatural will construct the story around the Apocalypse, Revelations, and man’s last days on earth.

I love trying to guess the end of a story or TV show plot. And because so many follow a formula, I’m usually able to get it. But Supernatural is definitely not one of those shows. Last weeks show totally wowed me. I loved the inclusion of a prophet who was a broke writer, showing how the ordinary man can be destined for the extraordinary.

I didn’t expect Uriel to get killed or to be the one to turn on God’s angels. I thought his character would continue to develop more.

I didn’t expect angels would die by Lucifer’s sword. But I’m still perplexed by what happens when demons and angels die. Does that mean they cease to exist or go somewhere other than heaven or hell? It makes me scratch my head every time.

If they made a series of books out of the show, I’d be first on line to buy my copies.

I definitely didn’t expect Dean to be the one to actually open the first seal that can lead to the Apocalypse.

And I definitely love my Thursday night surprises every week.

“Wishful Thinking”

Sam and Dean think that they are on a ghost hunt as usual until they start coming across strange anomolies in a small town.  These anomolies, such as a giant suicidal teddy bear and a beautiful girl dating the geek of the town, cause them to think that something else is going on.  An ancient coin that was thrown into a small restaurant wishing well has caused all of the wishes to come true.  A young boy who was once bullied by the the other children of the town wishes for supernatural strength and receives it.  He chases his former bullies and give them a taste of their own medicine.  I personally liked this plot theme since it’s every bullied kid’s dream come true.

As it turns out, that geeky guy engaged to the gorgous woman made the first wish and is the key to stopping the rampant wish fulfillment.
