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.

Are You Watching Supernatural? is a series of fan made commercials for Supernatural.  This is one of the best that I’ve come across on youtube.  I’ll post links to others as I come across them.  Check it out.

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.

Supernatural’s Season

CW Network

Supernatural’s last season began December and it’s second episode of the season aired on January 1st.  The writing this season seems different from the last season. Although the characters maintain their personalities and quirks, the undertone of the show is even darker than other seasons that have come before. Tonight’s show was a combination of terrorizing ghostly experiences mixed with guilty ridden sorrow over lost souls. The evil doers in this episode were now ghosts because of the human failings of the main characters. And the angel of God that keeps appearing to Dean is both mysterious and leaves you with the same question in your mind when he leaves – is he an angel or not? It’s hard to tell because the concept of angels with halos and harps is not used at all. This angel is bruding and a valient soldier in God’s Army against the Apocolypse.

Sam’s character has shown significant changes this season as well. In the absence of his brother Dean, his boyish charm has faded. He is a serious man with a lowly heart who seeks to drown his sorrows in booze and women. Sam still has a touch of innocence, demonstrated by his willingness to believe in angels and God.

Tonight’s episode is the first time I can say I was actually scared, like sitting in a dark movie theatre, waiting for the next burst of action.

As the season continues, I think we will see more glimpses into what Dean underwent in his four months in hell. The angel’s character will be a vitally important part to this season. And religion itself will become a major theme, especially the Book of Revelations in the Bible.

“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.
