'Supernatural' recap: Heart and souls

When it became obvious that Sam would set out on a solo adventure in this week’s Supernatural, I was hoping the time apart from Dean would be for something more than a case of the week. And I was not disappointed.

As Sam set off to look into a case about a mysterious rage hitting the residents of a small town, Dean stayed back to chase down leads on Abaddon’s whereabouts. Or so he said. Much of Dean’s booze-soaked staycation from hunting was spent working through apprehensions about what he’d have to do once Abaddon was found. After his first experience with the First Blade last week, in which we saw Cain-marked Dean approach the borders of Hulk town, Dean was dragging his feet a bit in his quest to find the ginger demon. He never said all of this, of course, because he’s Dean. According to Dean, Dean’s always fine. But as Crowley would say, bollocks.

'Supernatural' recap: Blade of Glory

Our first glimpse at Dean in possession of the First Blade that he and Sam have been chasing for the last few episodes has instilled me with great fear. Fear because he seems aggressive and brutal…and dangerously unpredictable.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. I would be remiss to glaze over the efforts the Winchesters put into obtaining said blade. So allow me to recap… READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: It's complicated

 Sam and Dean are still in the midst of their brotherly spat, but the Winchesters weren’t the only dynamic duo having relationship troubles in this week’s episode of Supernatural. The other pair of embattled buddies? None other than the Ghostfacers, who made their reappearance this week after a five-season (!) absence.

As you might be able to guess, it wasn’t exactly a happy reunion between the brothers and “supernaturalists”/official pains in the rump Harry (Travis Wester) and Ed (A.J. Buckley). In fact, Ed and Harry were probably the last people Sam and Dean expected to encounter while investigating the case of a girl who died after capturing the image of a mysterious being in a selfie. But it turned out Ed and Harry had picked up the case while tracking a mysterious being known as ThinMan.  And while it wasn’t idea to be working with the Ghostfacers around, Sam and Dean had no choice but to find a way to co-investigating without being tempted to off the mouthy duo. (Actually, it was mostly Dean who had to restrain himself.) READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: All about Tran

After several seasons of Supernatural, I’ve gotten used to saying goodbye to people and waiting several seasons to see them again. (See: Jake.) So when the late Kevin Tran showed up on last night’s episode as a ghost, it was a surprise to say the least. But even more surprising than an appearance from Ghost Kevin? The re-appearance of the thought-to-be-dead Mama Tran!

The result of this ghost-mom reunion was one of the sweetest episodes so far this season. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Honesty

The case at the center of tonight’s Supernatural was a pretty disgusting one. It involved a monster that used a trunk-like appendage to suck and consume fat from humans. Gross as that is, though, I’d rather watch 20 minutes of some monster called a Fish Taco Pishtaco munching on a portly midwesterner than 20 seconds of Sam and Dean hurling harsh truths at each other. Because at least I can turn away from the former. With the latter, there’s no choice but to sit there and watch those two battle it out, knowing all along that it’s impossibly to truly choose a side in the brother battle.

Once again, I’m exhausted by these boys. And need a hug.

'Supernatural' recap: 'Something's broken here'

It’s just a spat, I know. But any time the Winchester brother are on less-than-friendly terms, a tiny piece of me dies. You hear that, show, I’m DYING. And you DON’T CARE.

Sorry. Freak-out over. I’m not dying. I’m just stressed. As I mentioned, Sam and Dean are still working out some of the core issues that were left in the aftermath of the Gadreel drama. And though they tackled a couple of them head on in tonight’s episode, they’re far from done having it out over everything that has gone down so far this season. But I’ll get to that. First, we have to talk about Garth, who, it turns out, has gone through some pretty big stuff since we last saw him. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Pain & Cain

A fact about most Supernatural fans: We love the Winchester Bros. most when they’re together, fighting baddies side-by-side. That’s their natural state and a magical formula for instant awesome. A fact about this Supernatural fan? I usually try not to throw around my praise like dollar bills in a ’90s rap video. But in this case, I have to make it rain: Tonight’s episode — which found Sam and Dean pursuing their own paths following a Brother Break-up at the end of the last new episode — was one of the best episodes of the season so far. And I’m saying that as someone who has really enjoyed the season thus far. But when you have an episode that shows Dean Winchester kicking some major demon ass, Castiel making a simple PB&J sandwich a metaphor for life, the introduction of Cain (of freaking Cain and Abel), and Sam learning a valuable lesson about himself after having a needle jammed in his neck — well, what can you give that other than high praises?

But I’ve gotten ahead of myself. I’ll start at the beginning… READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Sam I Am

With your regular recapper, the lovely Sandra Gonzalez, out for the night, I feel I should start this by formally introducing myself, Supernatural-style: I’m ridiculously obsessed with Castiel, I miss Mark Pellegrino’s Lucifer almost every day, and all I want in this world is for Sam and Dean to hug more often (and for Sam to wear more denim). Alright, now that that’s taken care of, let’s get into this episode. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Matchmaker: Dean Winchester and Laurel Lance

Some of our favorite TV characters are often unlucky in love. They just can’t seem to find The One — but what if The One is on another show altogether?

Disclaimer: I know Katie Cassidy already played Ruby on Supernatural, so suspend a little disbelief here and focus on characters, not appearance. Or perhaps, Ruby’s vessel was Laurel Lance. (Did your head just explode?)

Laurel Lance … where do I begin? In season 1 of Arrow, Laurel was presented as the strong female. She had survived the death of her sister, her mother’s leaving, and the return of her ex-boyfriend (who had cheated on her with her now-thought-to-be-dead sister). After all that, she was still kicking. She was working her way up in the world of law while simultaneously taking care of her heartbroken father, not to mention that she was a class act when her ex, Mr. Oliver Queen, returned from the island. But now, one year later, Laurel has just about done a 180. Yes, I know she lost her boyfriend in last season’s finale, but so far, I feel like every single time she’s on screen, it’s a pity party.

Quite frankly, I wanted Laurel with Oliver last season, but now, I don’t see them working the same way. I think Oliver and Felicity have a lot more chemistry, and I think Laurel needs to do a little soul searching to figure out what she wants. To me, the girl doesn’t seem very happy with her life as a whole right about now. What she needs is to hit the road and find a man who won’t let her wallow in self-pity anymore. Enter Supernatural‘s Dean Winchester.
