Supernatural: Lucifer is Busting Out All Over

I'm beginning to understand why creator Eric Kripke has repeatedly said he'd like to end Supernatural after its fifth season. The first episode of season 4 introduced God and angels into the show's mythology, while last night's installment began setting up a showdown between the Winchesters and Lucifer himself. Lilith's quest to break the 66 seals sounds like it'd take about two seasons, and if Sam and Dean successfully thwart her and stop Satan from walking the Earth, where else could the series possibly go? Once you've beaten back Lucifer and the armies of Hell, everything else seems like small potatoes.

I don't feel it's a bad thing that Kripke seems to be setting the series up for its eventual end. I'm glad he's thinking ahead and pulling the villain to top all villains out of his hat. Focusing on a specific endgame helped make shows like Lost and Battlestar Galactica better than ever, and I think Supernatural is on a similar path. As much as I loved the overarching stories of the first three seasons, none grabbed me as instantly as this Heaven vs. Hell setup. Season 4 of Supernatural is building to something truly epic, with the apocalypse nipping at the Winchesters' heels. It feels like all hell is about to break loose once again.

Aside from the Lucifer bombshell, one of the highlights of last night's episode was the return of Meg, Henricksen and Ronald. Not only did these characters act as a gut-wrenching reminder of the innocent people the Winchesters failed to save, but their return was like an extra treat for loyal Supernatural fans. As BuddyTV reader N0Nightowl pointed out, the episode may have been more powerful had Bobby's wife been the one to haunt him. It's possible the actress wasn't available, so it's certainly a forgivable gripe.

Last night's episode also found Ruby 2.0 making a run for it, possibly never to return. The demon understandably had no desire to hang around and risk being spotted by an extremely powerful angel. I'm really not a fan of what Genevieve Cortese has brought to the role (mainly a lisp and a blank stare), so I won't miss her.

What do you think of the direction Supernatural is taking this season? Do you want more monsters and fewer Biblical shenanigans, or is it time to bring on the apocalypse?

Meet Mary Winchester, Demon Hunter

Friday, October 03, 2008


I have quite a few friends who discovered Supernatural after season 2, and they've yet to go back and jump into all the goodness of those first 44 episodes. I've had to field quite a few questions from them after last night's amazing installment, which dug deep into the mythology of the show and answered some questions that fans have been pondering since season 1. Not only did we learn that Mary came from a family of demon hunters, but we also learned why she apologized to Sam in "Home," and why she recognized the Yellow-Eyed Demon in "All Hell Breaks Loose." I wish I could say I was ahead of the curve and predicted that Mary was a hunter long ago, but it's obvious Eric Kripke is smarter than I am. I didn't see the revelation coming at all, which is why my mind is still reeling from the big twist.

The shocks in last night's episode were fantastic, but I'm still a little confused about the time travel element. Castiel told Dean (Jensen Ackles) that he was seeing what had happened in the past, but some things wouldn't have played out the same way had Dean not been there. For example, Mary wouldn't have discovered that the YED was going after her friend, and wouldn't have gone to confront him without Dean passing on the information. The question is, did the past events always involve Dean, or did they simply come to pass differently the first time around? I'm assuming it's the latter, since the Jeffrey Dean Morgan version of John likely would have found it strange that his son grew up to look like some guy he met in 1973. As Castiel explained, the events were destined to happen no matter what, so Dean's interference couldn't have changed anything.

That confusion aside, I'm now convinced more than ever that Supernatural is ultimately building to an epic confrontation between Sam and Dean. Sam (Jared Padalecki) is secretly spending his nights with a demon, Dean is becoming awfully chatty with an angel, and Azazel's ultimate endgame has yet to be revealed. I don't see this ending very well. Both Sam and Dean think they're doing the right thing and following the correct path, but I'm betting one of them is being tricked into something that will change their relationship forever. I'm guessing it's Sam who will ultimately fall prey to the dark side, and then he and Dean can have their Luke-Vader battle to the death.

What could Azazel's endgame possibly be? Aside from Lucifer walking the earth, which Lilith is already working on, I can't think of anything bigger than raising a massive demon army. Maybe his plan involves using Sam to help bust Lucifer out of Hell. It's impossible to know at this point, but I do think that Sam's powers are going to backfire eventually. As a wise man once said, you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain. I can't shake the feeling that Sam is walking down a very dangerous path.

Aside from all the juicy answers that "In the Beginning" offered up, the thing that truly made the episode special was the casting. Amy Gumenick made an excellent Mary Winchester (née Campbell), and her performance is even more of a revelation considering this is her first credited acting role. Matt Cohen did an excellent job at portraying a more innocent John Winchester than we've ever seen before, and Mitch Pileggi stole the show as Grandpa Sam. Pileggi perfectly embodied Sam's toughness and paternal instincts, as well as the twisted villainy of the YED. It's too bad his character kicked the bucket and will likely never return.

Next week's episode of Supernatural looks to be a monster of the week outing, but until then we can ponder the twists, turns, and crazy time travel found in "In the Beginning."

Die größen Quotenverlierer und -gewinner der bisherigen Season

Freitag, 3.Oktober 2008



"Supernatrual" - Sam und Dean Winchester sind bisher die Gewinner der Season (c) 2006 Warner Bros.


Fast zwei Wochen ist die neue Season in den USA jetzt alt - vom „Frühstart“ einiger Sender einmal abgesehen. Zeit einen ersten Blick auf jene wiederkehrenden Serien zu werfen, deren Einschaltquoten sich besonders stark geändert haben.

Dabei ist natürlich zu beachten, dass diverse Serien noch nicht wieder auf den Bildschirm zurückgekehrt sind - wie „CSI: Crime Scene Investigation“ oder das gesamte Freitagslineup. Während also die Top-Ten noch nicht rund sind, tauchen dort aber auf der Verliererliste schon weitestgehend die Serien auf, die den jeweiligen Sendern Sorgen bereiten.


Die Gewinner

"Supernatural" (The CW), 1,2 -> 1,7 = +42%
"Criminal Minds" (CBS), 3,5 -> 4,7 = +34%
"How I Met Your Mother" (CBS), 3,3 -> 4,7 = +21%
"CSI: Miami"(CBS), 4,6 -> 5,2 = +13%
"NCIS" (CBS), 3,2 -> 3,6 = +13%
"Two And A Half Men" (CBS), 4,8 -> 5,3 = +10%
"CSI: NY" (CBS), 3,7 -> 4,0 = +8%
"Gossip Girl" (The CW), 1,6 -> 1,7 = +6%
"One Tree Hill" (The CW), 1,6 -> 1,7 = +6%
"American Dad" (FOX), 3,1 -> 3,2 = +3%


Die Verlierer

"Pushing Daisies" (ABC), 4,4 -> 2,0 = -55%
"Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" (FOX), 4,2 -> 2,4 = -43%
"Don't Forget about the Lyrics" (FOX), 2,9 -> 1,7 = -41%
"Without A Trace" (CBS), 4,7 -> 2,8 = -40%
"Private Practice" (ABC), 5,2 ->3,3 = -37%
"The New Adventures of Old Christine" (CBS), 3,2 -> 2,1 = -34%
"Dirty Sexy Money" (CBS), 3,6 -> 2,4 = -33%
"America's Next Top Model" (The CW), 2,5 -> 1,7 = -32%
"Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader" (FOX), 2,5 -> 1,7 = -32%
"Heroes" (NBC), 7,3 -> 5,0 = -32%
"My Name is Earl" (NBC), 3,8 -> 2,7 = -29%



Angegeben sind jeweils der Serienname, das entsprechende Network, die Veränderung der jeweiligen Staffelauftakte im Rating bei den 18-49-jährigen (also der Anteil, den die Serie von allen Zuschauern in der für die Werbewirtschaft relevante Altersgruppe erreichte; jeweils zuerst der Wert aus der Season 2007/08 gefolgt vom aktuellen Wert) sowie die jeweilige Veränderung zum Vorjahr.

Dabei sind natürlich diverse Feinheiten zu beachten, tauchen allerdings auch einige Trends auf. Der gesamte Primetime-Mittwoch von ABC ist von Teils starken Verlusten betroffen (von denen es eben mit „Pushing Daisies“, „Private Practice“ und „Dirty Sexy Money“ alle drei auf die Verliererliste „geschafft“ haben). Dafür konnte das Montags-Lineup von CBS fast durch die Bank zulegen - man mag vermuten, zu Kosten von NBCs „Heroes“.

Die beiden CBS-Serien „Without A Trace“ und „The New Adventures of Old Christine“ können darauf verweisen, dass sie Sendeplatzwechsel hinter sich haben, wobei gerade Christine von einem Platz an der Sonne (am Ende des erfolgreichen Comedy-Lineups) auf einen deutlich schwierigeren wechselte.

Wie bereits an anderer Stelle gesagt, sieht es für „Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles“ recht schwierig aus (Serienjunkies vom 02.10.2008): Nach mehreren Ausstrahlungen sind die Verluste gerade in der werberelevanten Zielgruppe immer noch dramatisch.

Update: Unserer Quelle - The Hollywood Reporter - hatte in den Worst-Ten auf Platz fünf zunächst „Private Practice“ vergessen, was nachtgetragen wurde (womit jetzt eine Worst-Eleven-Liste vorliegt).

Zudem zeigt die Liste jeweils nur das Rating des jeweiligen Staffelstarts, Vergleich 2007 -> 2008.

'Supernatural' Season 4 Experiences a Ratings Surge

Monday, October 06, 2008


Now that the fall TV season is in full swing, it's starting to look like the writers' strike caused a lot more damage to television than we originally thought. Many sophomore shows have plummeted in the ratings compared to last year, including Pushing Daisies, Life, Dirty Sexy Money, Private Practice, Chuck, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Even Heroes, an already established hit, is down about 32 percent compared to last year, leaving many experts claiming that we're in for some sort of television apocalypse.

As sad as it is to see so many great shows struggling for viewers, it's not doom and gloom everywhere on the tube. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Supernatural has experienced more ratings growth among the 18-49 demographic this season than any other show on television. It's up 42 percent from its season 3 numbers, beating out second place gainer Criminal Minds by an impressive eight percent.

Supernatural season 4 kicked off with an impressive 3.96 million viewers, though the first episode was up against limited competition. The second episode, which had to compete with the premieres of Survivor, The Office and Grey's Anatomy, fell to 3.2 million, while the latest installment, which landed on the night of the vice presidential debates when many shows were delayed, surged to 3.5 million. To put things in perspective, the highest rated episode of season 3, "Bedtime Stories," was seen by 3.24 million people. The ratings average for season 2 was a mere 2.91 million, while this year it currently stands at 3.55 million.

I wish I could point to something to explain why Supernatural is experiencing a ratings surge, but I have no idea why more people are tuning in now versus last year. I personally know of three people who just started watching the show this season, and after seeing the quality of the first few episodes they've become quite addicted. Maybe all the buzz from the fan base is finally starting to pay off, or maybe the new twists and turns in the mythology have pulled some people in.

As much as I hate to rain on the parade of Supernatural fans everywhere, chances are the season 4 average will take a bit of a hit once the show goes up against heavy competition. Thanks to some crafty scheduling, the series has only had to square off with the likes of Grey's Anatomy and The Office once in its first three weeks, but that's going to change beginning this Thursday. 30 Rock will also be premiering against it in the next few weeks, though that's hardly a ratings juggernaut.

Supernatural isn't the only CW show experiencing a ratings uptick in the all-important 18-49 demographic. Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill are also up six percent. The network may not pull in huge numbers, but it looks like more people are finally paying attention to their quality shows.

Winchester vs. Winchester

Tuesday, October 07, 2008


If I took a trip to see sassy psychic Missouri Moseley and asked her what's coming up in Supernatural's future, I think I know what she'd tell me: the battle of Winchester vs. Winchester. Dean has known he might have to face off with his brother since the beginning of season 2, when a dying John warned him that Sam might turn to the dark side one day. The addition of Castiel to the mythology has only made the brotherly battle more inevitable. Sam is cranking up his dark mojo with help from a demon, Dean is working for an angel, and the long-dead Yellow-Eyed Demon has a plan for Sam that has yet to be revealed. None of this is going to end well.

Assuming Eric Kripke plans to wrap up Supernatural with season 5, I'd expect this extreme case of sibling rivalry to go down at the end of the current season. I don't think he'd want to end the entire series on a Sam vs. Dean showdown, as fans would probably be upset if the final episodes found the Winchesters fighting one another. Season 4 has only had three episodes so far, but already I believe that the big finale will end with a cliffhanger that finds the brothers either fighting one another or splitting apart. Maybe they'll disagree over how to stop the YED's ultimate plan, with Sam siding with Ruby and Dean (Jensen Ackles) sticking by Castiel. Bring on the fisticuffs!

I'm not against the Winchester vs. Winchester idea. I know fans hate it when the brothers fight, but conflict makes for interesting drama, especially when the fate of the world is at stake. The idea of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean on different sides of a battle between Heaven and Hell is extremely exciting, and more importantly it gives each of them a personal stake in the big storyline. As long as Kripke repairs the brotherly bond at the end and doesn't kill either of them off, I think it'd be fascinating to watch.

The real question is: who would win in a battle between the brothers? Sam has the mental powers on his side, but Dean has an angel and more experience kicking ass. My theory is that Sam will eventually turn evil and wreak havoc, a la dark Willow in season 6 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and it'll be up to Dean to play the Xander role and remind him of his humanity. Supernatural has borrowed a thing or two from Buffy over the years, and I think the idea of Dean's brotherly love saving Sam's soul sounds pretty damn emotional. Bring it on, Kripke.

Supernatural Sex Talk: Is Sam "Doing It" with a Demon?

Supernatural fans want to know: Did Sam hook up with his demon helper, Ruby? While series creator Eric Kripke thus far is mum on the subject, Jared Padalecki is willing to offer his own (albeit unconfirmed) opinion on the possibly sticky sitch.

Padalecki theorizes that the unlikely associates "have been lovers," noting that "from the first episode this season, when Dean returns and Ruby (now played by Genevieve Cortese) is in her underwear and Sam is coming out of the bathroom, it's hinted that Sam and Ruby have a bit more going on than, 'Hey, let's study how to kill demons.'"

Padalecki, however, stops short of suggesting that any hook-up (if one happened) means anything. "Maybe she's just being nice to Sammy," he says, "since he thought he lost his brother."

Hey, at least one of these hunky hunters might be — might be, we say — getting his due.

Supernatural: The Yellow Eyes of the Tiger

The old saying claims that there's nothing to fear but fear itself, but that wasn't exactly the case on last night's episode of Supernatural. Many of the things that terrified Dean after he became infected with Ghost Sickness were rather innocuous, but he had to face a few genuine fears as well. Aside from the horrifying notion of being sent back to Hell, Dean had to wrestle with the possibility that Sammy may one day follow in the Yellow-Eyed Demon's footsteps. The creepiest scene in the episode came in the form of a hallucination, as Dean imagined a yellow-eyed Sam attempting to strangle him. Is the younger Winchester actually destined to become the next Azazel, or is Dean merely paranoid?

Maybe I'm not the brightest Supernatural fan in the world, but I never considered the possibility that Sam might become a yellow-eyed demon. I always assumed he'd morph into your run-of-the-mill black-eyed baddie, but now I'm wondering if a different fate awaits him. Of course, we don't even know why the Yellow-Eyed Demon had yellow eyes in the first place, so I have no idea what that signifies. What makes him different from every other demon we've seen on the show? Will we ever find out?

"Yellow Fever" had plenty of creepy moments, but the hilarious scenes truly made it stand out. Jensen Ackles made Dean's fear completely believable, whether he was squirming on the couch next to a snake or screaming like a woman after finding a cat in a locker. In a weird way, the episode reminded me a bit of season 3's "Bad Day at Black Rock." That installment allowed Sam fans to watch Jared Padalecki's brilliant comedic timing for an hour, and "Yellow Fever" did the same for Dean lovers. The episode almost seemed like an early Christmas gift for Jensen's fans, especially with this unforgettable outtake tacked on at the end:



Just try getting "Eye of the Tiger" out of your head after watching that.

Thinking back on the episode, it's clear that the title may have a double meaning. "Yellow Fever" could easily describe the sickness that turned Dean into a chicken, but it may also refer to the infection inside Sam that will eventually turn him into a YED. I have an unfortunate feeling that Sammy is destined to turn evil despite Dean's best efforts, proving that there's definitely more for the Winchesters to fear than fear itself.

Supernatural: Ist Sam ein Vergewaltiger?

Es gibt eine interessante Diskussion, die momentan durch die Supernatural-Fangemeinschaften geistert und die ich bisher ignoriert habe, hauptsächlich, weil ich befürchtet hatte, den Stein erst richtig ins Rollen zu bringen. Jedoch findet man dazu viele Meinungen im Internet, daher ist es Zeit, diesen umstrittenenen Diskussionsschwerpunkt genauer zu beleuchten.

In der neuen Staffel Supernatural wurde angedeutet, dass Sam eine Affäre mit dem Dämon Ruby hat. Nicht nur, dass Dean zum Staffelbeginn einen BH in dem Hotelzimmer von Sam gefunden hat, auch Jared Padalecki selbst erzählte gegenüber TVGuide, dass Sam und Ruby eventuell etwas am Laufen haben. Gemäß der Mythologie der Show sind Dämonen eigentlich unschuldige Menschen, die von einer bösen Kraft besessen sind. Jene Menschen bekommen manchmal mit, welche schrecklichen Sachen ihre dämonischen Puppenspieler mit ihnen tun. Wenn Sam wirklich mit Ruby schläft, verletzt er damit den Körper eines unschuldigen Mädchens, das ihn sonst nie berühren kann. Macht das aus unserem geliebten Sammy einen Vergewaltiger?

Bevor auch ich in diesen Wirbel eintauche, lasst mich erwähnen, dass es keine offizielle Bestätigung dafür gibt, dass Sam und Ruby eine Affäre haben. Als Padalecki mit TVGuide sprach, theoretisierte er, dass es möglich ist, dass die beiden eine Affäre „von der ersten Folge dieser Staffel an haben, als Dean zurückkehrt und Ruby in ihrer Unterwäsche dastehen sieht, während Sam gerade aus dem Bad kommt. Es wird angedeutet, dass Sam und Ruby ein bisschen mehr zu laufen haben, als nur 'Hey, lass uns ausprobieren, wie man Dämonen tötet.'"

Wenn wir einmal annehmen, dass Sam und Ruby sich auch außerplanmäßigen Tätigkeiten hingeben, kann ich mir vorstellen, dass diese Situation als Vergewaltigung dargestellt werden könnte. Sam hätte dann eigentlich Sex mit einem herumlaufenden, sprechenden Koma-Patienten. Jedoch kann ich nicht wirklich glauben, dass die Autoren der Serie Sam als Vergewaltiger darstellen wollen. Das war ein Versehen seitens Eric Kripkes und dem Rest der Supernatural Belegschaft, was bedeutet, dass das Vergewaltigungsproblem wahrscheinlich nie eine Rolle spielen sollte. Kripke hat dazu noch keine Erklärung abgegeben, was einige Fans wütend macht. Es wäre für ihn einfacher, diese Debatte im Keim zu ersticken, aber es ist gut möglich, dass er davon noch gar nichts weiß. Kripke ist ein vielbeschäftigter Mann, er hat wahrscheinlich nicht die Zeit, jede Diskussion, die online geführt wird, zu verfolgen.

Ist Sex mit einem Dämon das Gleiche wie Vergewaltigung im Supernatural Universum? Wir könnten diese Frage ewig diskutieren, aber momentan ist es ein sinnloses Unterfangen. Bis jetzt gibt es nicht einen Beweis dafür, dass Sam mit Ruby schläft, dass bedeutet, wir können diese Diskussion erst einmal zu keinem Abschluss bringen. Ich bitte die Fans, abzuwarten, wie sich die Serie für Sam entwickelt, bevor man ihn verurteilt. Er mag sich auf einem dunklen Weg befinden, aber ich denke nicht, dass Eric Kripke jemals beabsichtigt hat, uns diese eine besondere Frage zu stellen.

The Great Sam vs. Dean Debate

Monday, November 10, 2008


Despite being addicted to Supernatural since its premiere, I wasn't involved in the show's online fan community until season 3. I was surprised to find just how dedicated and knowledgeable the fans are, and I'm still amazed at how much discussion takes place after every episode. Supernatural viewers are a vocal bunch, and they're certainly not afraid to speak up when they dislike a plot twist or new character. I'm sure we all remember the great controversy known as Rubela-Gate '07, just to name one example.

No matter what crazy demonic forces the Winchesters face, fans never seem to tire of debating whether Sam or Dean is the better character. The Sam vs. Dean debates can be rather brutal, and much virtual blood has been spilled as viewers have raged back and forth arguing the merits of the two brothers. As someone who loves both characters equally, I have to ask, can't we all just get along?

For some reason, it seems that the Sam vs. Dean debates have intensified in season 4. This could be due to Dean's expanded role in the Supernatural mythology, which has given Jensen Ackles more to do this year. The instant it was revealed that Dean was pulled from Hell by an angel, he's played a big role in the show's ongoing story arc. Meanwhile, Sam's descent into darkness has been talked about more than it's actually been seen, and he even spent one episode almost entirely off screen. This upset some Sammy-lovers, as did the controversial argument that he might be considered a rapist due to his supposed dalliance with Ruby.

Of course, just because Sam fans are angry doesn't mean Dean addicts are satisfied. I've often heard complaints that Dean is written as being too stupid, which is an argument I've always found rather silly. Fans also got upset when a recent episode implied that Dean might be a dick, which forced creator Eric Kripke to release a statement explaining his intentions. The latest point of contention seems to be that Sam has been lying to his brother about various things since he returned from Hell. This has given Dean-lovers another reason to rail against Sammy, which has just added more fuel to the fire.

I think it's fine for people to prefer one brother over the other, and I certainly encourage speaking up if a character or plot line is being written poorly. That being said, can't we set aside the competitive nonsense? I don't have a problem with people disliking a certain character, but if you're a true fan of Supernatural it seems that you should at least like both Winchester brothers. If not, how can you stand to watch the show?

In my opinion, a well-written television series should present characters who are flawed. It's a fact that humans occasionally make terrible decisions. We lie, we cheat, we veer left when we should veer right, we keep secrets, and we often make terrible mistakes. Any series that doesn't imbue its characters with these very human foibles isn't worth watching. The thing that makes Supernatural so great is that the Winchesters are just like us. They aren't perfect little robots who always do the right thing, which means it's okay to get angry at them when they do something completely stupid. Unfortunately, some fans choose to cast judgment on the characters every time a poor decision is made, which isn't healthy for anyone.

The other reality fans need to consider is that Supernatural is a television show. Just like with any series, there are going to be times when one character is focused on more than another, and there may be episodes where your personal favorite doesn't have a thing to do. That's one of the things viewers have to handle with any show that lasts for multiple seasons. I'd love it if Chuck Bass could be the focal point of every Gossip Girl episode, but then it wouldn't be the same show. I feel the folks behind Supernatural do a great job at balancing the arcs of both characters, and I'm sure neither Jensen or Jared has ever complained about not having enough screen time.

I hate for this to come off as a rant against the fans, as that's not my intention. I'm just tired of the negativity. It's great to debate plot twists and controversial decisions made by certain characters, but once the arguments turn nasty it only upsets people. Supernatural is an amazing series with two amazingly well-written, fully fleshed out characters at its core. If you want to argue that particular point, maybe you're watching the wrong show.

Is Ruby in Love With Sam?

Monday, November 24, 2008


Ruby has been a controversial character among Supernatural fans since her introduction in season 3 of the series, and that certainly didn't change when actress Genevieve Cortese took over the role. Some people, including myself, have found Cortese's acting skills to be a bit distracting, though most would agree that she's improved in recent episodes. Performance aside, the fact remains that Ruby is a shady, possibly untrustworthy character. We don't know if her true motivation is to help the boys or use them as her pawns, and until that becomes clear it may be impossible to warm up to Ruby.

In a recent interview with TV Guide, Cortese revealed her theory as to why Ruby is helping the Winchesters. Could she actually be in love with Sam?

In the interview, Cortese talked about the importance of explaining why the Winchesters would work with Ruby. "If you look at Katie's last episode, you see that while Ruby's not responsible for Dean going to hell, she does have some guilt about it," the actress pointed out. "I wanted to use some of that, though not as a sympathy card ... I wanted to address questions like, 'Why are the boys hanging out with her? What do they need her for at this point?' It's not like she is kicking ass; she's asking Sam to kick ass for her, so it's kind of a mutual exchange. I almost feel like, deep down, she's really in love with Sam. One of the lines in ['I Know What You Did Last Summer'] is, 'I used to be human, and I still remember what it feels like.' Maybe she was being manipulative, sure, but maybe there's also truth to it."

The idea of Ruby being in love with Sam is an interesting one, but I really don't get that vibe from their scenes together. It seems as though her one goal is to convince Sammy to use his powers, which is something that's only going to lead to trouble. Why is she so intent on leading him down that path? Is it because she loves him and truly wants to help him do good, or is she pulling a Darth Vader and trying to lead him to the dark side? Ruby has been undeniably helpful since her first appearance on Supernatural, but she almost seems a little too helpful for a demon. I agree with Dean that it's better to keep a close eye on her.

I'm hoping we'll find out more about Ruby's true intentions when Supernatural returns with new episodes on January 15. In the meantime, comment below with your thoughts on whether Ruby is truly trustworthy and lovesick, or evil and manipulative.

Illusionisten-Episode im Januar

von Bernd Michael Krannich am Dienstag, 25.November 2008



Spoilerwarnung - Diese Meldung kann Hinweise auf die Fortführung der Handlung der Serie enthalten!


Am 22. Januar wird in den USA eine Episode der Serie 'Supernatural' ausgestrahlt, in der einige bekannte Gastdarsteller als Illusionisten auftreten werden: Barry Bostwick, John Rubinstein und Richard Libertini.

In der 'Supernatural'-Episode, die der amerikanische Broadcaster The CW Television Network am 22. Januar 2009 auszustrahlen gedenkt, werden mit Barry Bostwick, John Rubinstein und Richard Libertini gleich mehrere bekannte Schauspieler in die Rollen von Illusionisten schlüpfen. Die Episode trägt dann auch den vielsagenden Titel 'Criss Angel is a Douche Bag' - ein aus Sicht der Winchester-Brüder wohl verständlicher Seitenhieb auf den Illusionisten Criss Angel und seine MTV-Show 'Mindfreak'.

Alle drei Gaststars sind bekannte Gesichter, die immer wieder in einzelnen Serienepisoden als Gast zu sehen sind. So ist der mittlerweile 63-jährige Barry Bostwick vor allem durch seinen Auftritt als Bürgermeister Randall Winston in der Michael J. Fox bzw. Charlie Sheen Serie 'Chaos City' ein Begriff geworden, und dürfte hieraus auch den meisten deutschen Comedy-Freunden bekannt geworden sein. Aber seit dem Ende der Serie ist er durch viele Formate getingelt, von 'Cold Case' bis 'Hallo Holly'.

Ebenso der mittlerweile 61-jährige John Rubinstein. 1984-86 hatte er mit der Hauptrolle in der Serie 'Die Fälle des Harry Fox', in der er den jungen, gradlinigen Sohn eines unorthodoxen Privatermittlers (Jack Warden) spielte. Seitdem ist er ein Nomade der Fernsehserien. Gerade letzte Woche hatte er zum Beispiel gleich zwei Auftritte im amerikanischen Fernsehen, in Gerichtssettings: In 'Eli Stone' und 'Dirty Sexy Money'. Dazwischen war er aber auch schon als Bösewicht in einigen Episoden von 'Star Trek: Enterprise' und als Politiker bei '24' zu sehen.

Auch der 75-jährige Richard Libertini ist bereits seit 30 Jahren in vielen kleinen Rollen im Fernsehen zu sehen gewesen. Zufällig auch in einer kürzlichen Episode von 'Numb3rs', die sie ebenfalls um Illusionisten drehte: 'Magic Show'.

Supernatural: Grading the First Half of Season 4

I'm tempted to declare season 4 of Supernatural my absolute favorite of the series, but we still have about 12 episodes remaining before the big finale. It's too early to judge the season as a whole, so I decided to look back at the first 10 episodes and grade them individually. I enjoyed every installment when it initially aired, but some held up better in my memory than others. Read on for the report card, then chime in with your own opinions on the best and worst of season 4.

Episode 4.1: "Lazarus Rising"

Some shows have trouble creating powerful season premieres, but that's never been a problem for Supernatural. Season 4 got off to a strong start with an episode that featured the resurrection of Dean Winchester, his reunion with Sam, and the shocking revelation that an angel pulled Dean from the pit. Not only did "Lazarus Rising" wrap up the season 3 cliffhanger in a satisfying manner, but it took the Supernatural mythology in an exciting new direction. GRADE: A+

Episode 4.2: "Are You There God? It's Me, Dean Winchester"

The title of this episode is certainly the best of season 4 (at least until January 22, when "Criss Angel is a Douche Bag" airs), but it wasn't the strongest installment of the year. It was nice to see the return of characters like Meg and Agent Hendrickson, but the story about vengeful ghosts wasn't all that unique or thrilling. However, this episode gets extra points for introducing us to Bobby's panic room and Lilith's plan to raise Lucifer. GRADE: B+

Episode 4.3: "In the Beginning"

It's not often that an episode comes along and answers questions that we've been pondering for years, but that's exactly what "In the Beginning" managed to accomplish. The time traveling setup could have been hokey, but somehow seeing Dean back in the 1970s seemed perfectly normal. Some fans may complain that the lack of Jared Padalecki hurts this episode, but I think it makes up for his absence by offering plenty of answers about the Winchester family. GRADE: A+

Episode 4.4: "Metamorphosis"

"Metamorphosis" was a decent standalone episode with some memorable moments, but it suffers a bit coming right after "In the Beginning." As compelling as it was to see the brothers face off with a rugaru, it just can't compare to the Mary Winchester story. Of course, let's not forget that this episode has the epic motel room confrontation between the brothers, with Dean punching Sam in the face -- twice! That's the kind of juicy conflict that makes Supernatural so amazing. GRADE: B

Episode 4.5: "Monster Movie"

It's true that I have a bit of a man-crush on writer Ben Edlund, and this episode is a perfect example why. It's standalone and doesn't contribute much to the season's overall arc, but it's wonderfully executed and tons of fun. I'm also impressed that Kripke and the gang had the nerve to film in black-and-white, which is something One Tree Hill didn't bother to do for their 1940s episode. It's obvious that not all CW shows are created equal. GRADE: A

Episode 4.6: "Yellow Fever"

Five words: Dean screaming like a girl. The only thing that made me laugh harder in recent months was the sight of Jensen Ackles performing "Eye of the Tiger," which is also from this episode. "Yellow Fever" allowed Ackles to show off his comedic chops, but I was a bit letdown by yet another story about a vengeful ghost. Pissed off spirits don't really get my blood pumping, but "Yellow Fever" has enough great Winchester moments to satisfy any fan. GRADE: B+

Episode 4.7: "It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester"

There's nothing like Halloween with the Winchesters, especially when Samhain is on the loose and causing havoc. This episode didn't quite live up to the awesome promise of a Supernatural holiday spectacular, but it is notable for introducing Uriel to the mythology. The ass-kicking angel is a lot scarier than Castiel, as we saw from his willingness to smite an entire town. Of course, he's not nearly as dreamy. GRADE: B

Episode 4.8: "Wishful Thinking"

Sam and Dean go to a town where wishes really can come true, and we're soon introduced to a bipolar teddy bear, a kid with super-powers, and Ted Raimi as a babe magnet. As far as Ben Edlund episodes go, this isn't quite as brilliant as "Monster Movie," but it still has a freakin' teddy bear shooting himself in the head with a rifle. GRADE: A-

Episode 4.9: "I Know What You Did Last Summer"

Need a heaping helping of delicious Supernatural mythology? Look no further than this episode, which finally shed some light on what Sam was up to while Dean was six feet under. It also introduced us to the character of Anna, who could overhear the thoughts of the angels. I love it when Supernatural offers up answers, especially when they're as satisfying as the ones found here. GRADE: A

Episode 4.10: "Heaven and Hell"

The second part of "The Winchester Sex Chronicles" finds Dean hooking up with Anna, who is revealed to be an angel fallen from Heaven. The religious mumbo jumbo could be cheesy on a lesser show, but with a script by Eric Kripke this episode truly delivers. It has action, sex, a hilarious Touched By An Angel reference, and a big smackdown between angels and demons. What more do you require from Supernatural? GRADE: A+

After looking back at all the episodes, I've determined what I think are the top five of season 4 so far. They are:

5. "Monster Movie"
4. "I Know What You Did Last Summer"
3. "Heaven and Hell"
2. "Lazarus Rising"
1. "In the Beginning"

Agree? Disagree? Sound off below, then check BuddyTV tomorrow for a poll that will allow YOU to choose the best of season 4 so far.

Vote for the Best Episode of Season 4

Wednesday, November 26, 2008


What is the best episode of Supernatural's fourth season? That's a question I posed in an article yesterday, eventually settling on the mythology-heavy "In the Beginning." It offered up a plethora of answers to questions we had been pondering for years, and successfully added numerous layers to the Winchester family history. Of course, not all fans agreed with my choice, with some claiming that the episode lacked the brotherly bonding moments that makes Supernatural so special. That's why I've created a showdown that allows fans to vote for season 4's most awe-inspiring hour. Is "In the Beginning" worthy of the honor, or should another episode rise to the top?

What's the best episode of season 4 so far? You can vote for your pick by clicking on the showdown link below. Our Supernatural showdown pits the first 10 episodes of the series against each other, so simply vote for your favorites until only one episode remains. The showdown ends on Sunday, November 30, and we'll reveal the episode fans chose as the best on December 1.

If I was voting on which season 4 episode had the best brotherly bonding moments, I'd have to choose either "I Know What You Did Last Summer" or "Heaven and Hell." The first finally found Sam spilling his dirty little secrets to Dean, and the latter allowed to Dean to open up to his brother about his time in Hell. Both episodes were expertly crafted, emotional, and wonderfully acted by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. I'm also a big fan of the bonding moments in "Lazarus Rising," especially when Sam and Dean reunite after Dean's resurrection.

Many episodes had more bonding moments than "In the Beginning," but I still stand by my claim that Dean's blast back to the past was the best hour of the season. Of course, I hope that the next 12 episodes top it and make me rethink the top five I listed in yesterday's article. I have a feeling that we're in for a crazy roller-coaster ride when Supernatural returns in 2009.

Which of the first 10 episodes ranks as the best of season 4 so far? Vote by clicking below, then check back on Monday for the final results.

'Supernatural' Videos: Clips from the Next Three Episodes

We're still a month away from new episodes of Supernatural, but if you can't wait until the new year for creepy haunted houses, magical magicians and Jensen Ackles in shorts and gym socks, you're in luck. The CW has generously released some snippets from the first three episodes of the new year, just enough to whet your appetites. They're more like stocking stuffers than actual Christmas presents.

“Family Remains” - January 15
Haunted houses are familiar terrain for the Winchesters, but this looks like the creepiest one yet, and it will be the first episode back, written by Jeremy Carver. The man whose previous credits include instant Supernatural classics like “A Very Supernatural Christmas,” “Mystery Spot” and “In the Beginning” promises to try out pure horror. For more on Carver and this episode, check back for our exclusive interview with this great writer in the near future.

“Criss Angel is a Douche Bag” - January 22
I will never get tired of writing that title. In this clip, we see some magicians and some apparent voodoo work. Given the topic of magic, we can probably expect a few clever tricks, plus Dean ogling the magician's lovely female assistants.

“After School Special” - January 29
This is the episode where Dean and Sam return to their old high school and provide some key flashbacks to their youth. The funniest and best clip of the bunch was saved for last, as you can see Jensen Ackles parading around in shorts, gym socks and a headband, obviously posing as a substitute teacher. There's a subtle gay marriage joke, and a not-so-subtle dodgeball to the groin.

(klickt hier für den Clip)

While I'm looking forward to all three episodes, these clips and the storylines involved seem to indicate that Supernatural is taking a vacation from the angels. Maybe after that last battle, both sides needed to rest up, because when the angels and demons do return, it will be big.

A Death on 'Supernatural'

There are plenty of great episodes ahead for Supernatural, with magicians, high schools and Dean driving a Prius (more on that last one can be heard in our upcoming exclusive interview with writer Sera Gamble). Kristin at E!Online recently got word on another episode that features Dean and Sam posing as ghosts to uncover the sudden death of reapers.

The big news Kristin has today is that in this episode, “a character we know and love dies.” While she doesn't reveal who ths mystery death is, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out because, as any Supernatural fan knows, there aren't a whole lot of characters we “know and love.” It definitely takes Ruby out of the running.

My first hunch is that Kristin is using a bit of trickery. Since the boys pose as ghosts, maybe they have a spell that lets them die so they can become ghosts, but then be brought back to life after it's over. Except for this possibility, I think we can all safely assume Dean or Sam won't be the one to die.

If it's a real death, the odds have to be against Uncle Bobby. It's hard to find a more beloved character who could actually be killed off without dramatically harming the show. Part of me would love to see Bobby die only because, from a storytelling perspective, it would be very emotional and propel Dean and Sam into some newer, darker places. On the other hand, it might be too hard to let go of such a great character who can pop in all the time.

Supernatural has such a small ensemble that thinking of another “character we know and love” is no easy task. Other than Bobby or one of the Winchesters, I'm not sure I'd be that sad to see any other character die.

Unless, of course, Kristin is using the term “character” loosely. In the eyes of many Supernatural fans, there is another major character that is just as essential to the shows success as Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Naturally, I'm referring to the Impala.

Dean's car is usually the third star of the show, and the Impala has been around for a long time and it's seen a lot of action, so having it fall apart wouldn't be such a stretch. The bigger problem would be how could Dean fix it up, because if Supernatural actually killed the Impala, I suspect fans would react as if they gave Jared a buzz cut.

Which character do you think Kristin is talking about? Supernatural returns with new episodes on January 15.

Midseason Checkup: What Works, What Needs Work

Posted by Sarah on December 26, 2008


It's no secret that we're massive fans of Supernatural here at CW Source Central -- we've been crazy about the show, the premise, the scares, the family dynamics, and most of all, the glorious Winchester boys, since it first hit our TV screens. But that doesn't mean we're willing to give the show a pass when something isn't right. The show set the bar high, and we expect it to live up to its own ambitions!

Now that we're midway through season four, we wanted to take a look back at what's happened this year and give our verdict on what we love, what we hate, and what leaves us scratching our head. Will you agree? Read on to find out:



What We Love

*Angels among us: This could have gone very, very wrong. Seriously -- angels on Supernatural, strumming harps and spouting platitudes? Ah, but the celestial beings of the Supernatural world are of the bad-ass, Old Testament, smite-first-ask-questions-later school, not the cuddly Michael Landon/Roma Downey versions. When Castiel said Dean should give him more respect, we believed it. When Ariel talked about taking out a town full of "mud monkeys," we shuddered. These angels are just as powerful -- and just as scary -- as the demons the boys have encountered. Good stuff.

*Dean's return: When last season ended, we couldn't believe they'd actually, seriously, bloodily killed the elder Winchester brother. Oh, sure, Sam had died the season before (and that was equally devastating) but they brought him back in the next episode. Kripke & Co. made us suffer almost as much as Dean did in Hell. So when he clawed his way out of the grave, and saw the circle of devastation that surrounded him, we were impressed. When we learned more details of what had happened -- that Dean had held out for 30 years, but for the last 10, he'd participated in demonic torture -- our hearts broke. This is something that's going to haunt us all well beyond this season.

*The Comedy: Bad-ass angels, demonic torture, issues of life and death and life again... that's all heavy stuff. Which is why we were so damn thrilled to get moments of laugh-out-loud hilarity from the show. From Monster Movie (seeing old-school Dracula ride off on a scooter, Sam's reaction to Dean in Lederhosen, Dean proclaiming he'd been rehymenated), to Wishful Thinking (the guys trying to deal with an angsty living Teddy Bear), to Yellow Fever (that girly scream, plus the bonus Eye of the Tiger video!), this show knows how and when to leaven things with a laugh.

*The Backstories: Oh, how we loved In The Beginning. All of a sudden, so much made sense. Mary! John! The Metallicar! Yes, we were bummed that there was no Sam in the ep, but it made sense for the story. It may be one of our favorite episodes of the season. Likewise, we loved finally seeing how Sam ended up the way he did, allied with Ruby and using his mind mojo. It was a stellar performance from Jared, and a game-changing episode. But...


What we're not sure about

*Ruby: This is a tough one. We actually like the direction the show is taking with Ruby, but we know a LOT of fans do not. We don't know what Ruby's game is: Is she in love with Sam? Is she using him to her own ends? Is she hoping to turn him into a general in the angels vs. demons war? What the heck is going on? We loved seeing the backstory about how Sam and Ruby came together (she even got a certified cruelty-free meat suit, although yes, we know some of you dispute that), but we can't help but think that there's a whole lot we have still to learn. Right now, we're enjoying the ride. We just hope it doesn't end up in a bad, bad place.

*Secrets and Lies: We feared this would be another season where one of the brothers knows something the other doesn't, and he keeps it to himself and stews about it. Look, we love watching the angst, but we'd hope that he boys would learn, you know? To an extent, they have -- Dean found out relatively early on that Sam was using his mind mojo, and Sam owned up. Sam knew something was going on with Dean and Post Demonic Stress Syndrome, and Dean eventually started to unbend -- although he told Sam that he wasn't going to talk because he couldn't. But still, the brothers have a bad habit of thinking they can or should or must protect the feelings/innocence/delicate mental state of the other, and after four seasons, we can't help but think that they should KNOW better! It NEVER works out well! Just tell what you know, and get on with it!


What needs work

*Wait, WHAT?: There have been a few too many "HUH?" moments this year for our taste, where things have seemed out of character or completely out of left field. Dean hears one backstory about Ruby and Sam, and all of a sudden HE'S the one saving her? We thought he wanted her dead! Anna turns out to be a fallen angel who gave up her grace and decided to be human -- and angelic essence can be bottled? Ghosts can be scared to death -- and Sam is willing to do that be brutally dragging him behind a car (yes, we know, Bobby drove, but it was Sam's plan)? There's ANOTHER shapeshifter roaming the byways of America? Sometimes, it just seemed too much.

*The Potential Problems: We've been trying to come up with things that disappoint us about this season, and we've got to admit, there's not much. We find ourselves more anxious or disappointed by the way things COULD go than by the way they actually have. We fear this will turn into a scenario where Dean and Sam are leading opposing armies... but look, that hasn't happened yet. There are plenty of ways it COULD go wrong, but unless it does, we really can't complain about it. (As chronic nit-pickers and complainers, you have no idea how uneasy that makes us. Surely there should be SOMETHING else wrong with the show! But we're just not seeing it right now.)

Oh, Brother! Exclusive Supernatural Casting News

Feb 7, 2009





Is there a third Winchester sibling among us? It certainly would seem so, and Jake Abel (Threshold) is playing him, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Abel has been cast on the CW's Supernatural as Adam Milligan, an 18-year-old whom Sam and Dean meet in an episode titled "Jump the Shark" and airing April 23.

Adam, viewers will learn, is the by-product of a little somethin'-somethin' that big daddy John enjoyed during one of his demon hunts. Upon eventually being told by a onetime paramour of Adam's paternity, John paid the lad the occasional visit. Never, though, did John alert Sam and Dean to Adam's existence, nor vice versa.

As such, it will be ... um, interesting ... when the two Winchester boys we know and love come to know the boy they (nor we) never knew. You know?

Yes, Supernatural fans. It's near-blasphemous to introduce a new bro. Do you think he's just a poser? Some demon's grand idea of a major mind-boink for Sam and Dean? Or is this kid not kidding around? I'm sure you have plenty to say, and you know where to say it.

Shark Bites: Supernatural Boss Talks of the New Kid in Town

Feb 18, 2009 02:19 PM ET


In Jump the Shark land, we have a special category for shows that decide to bring in a new character to shake things up: New kid in town. The idea can be summed up in two words: Cousin Oliver. Remember when the Brady Bunch started to feel a little old and stale? All of a sudden, their pesty, tow-headed cousin Oliver showed up. But, instead of charming us or pushing the show in an interesting direction, he ended up exposing the real flaws of the series.

When our own Matt Mitovich recently reported on a new brother joining the Supernatural family in an
episode titled, "Jump the Shark," we had to ask creator Eric Kripke about the genesis of the story. Here's what he had to say:

"When we were breaking the story about the third Winchester brother, we knew the fans would scream that we had jumped the shark. Of course, adding a new sibling or relative to an established series is a classic and cherished shark jump, Cousin Oliver being the patron saint of the practice. (And sure enough, Sam and Dean are eating at 'Cousin Oliver's Diner' in the episode). Anyway, it became clear that we should beat the fans to the punch and title the episode, 'Jump the Shark.' Though rejected titles included: 'When Leo Joined Growing Pains,' or 'The Raven Symone Episode.'

"For fans who are worried that we are truly jumping the shark... watch the episode, decide for yourself. Personally, I don't think we're gassing up the motorcycle quite yet, but you tell me. And stay tuned for next season, when the boys take trips to London and Hawaii (haunted Tiki dolls!) and Sam and Ruby get married. And Ted McGinley joins the cast as the thoughtful (but hot!) college professor."

Supernatural's "Jump the Shark" episode airs on April 23 (CW, 9 pm/ET).

Now doesn't that make you all feel better? Weigh in below!

Supernatural: Preview of March's New Episodes

We’re now less than one week away from the return of Supernatural. After an unbearably long hiatus (the last new episode was February 5), Supernatural is finally back to finish up its fourth season. And since the CW already picked up season 5, there will be plenty more ahead.

While the CW has released a preview video and official photos from next week’s episode, “Death Takes a Holiday,” we also have official episode descriptions from the next three episodes. There will be torture, murder, and health drinks. Continue reading for details on what’s to come on Supernatural.

“Death Takes a Holiday” (March 12)

Official CW Description: “Sam and Dean investigate a small town where people are cheating death. They discover the Reapers have gone missing so they turn to Pamela for help. She sends them into the spiritual world to find answers and they come face to face with Alastair, who has been kidnapping all the Reapers in order to break another seal.”

It will be nice to have Alastair back as he is quite the scary villain. This episode was written by Jeremy Carver, who was written some of the show’s best episodes like “Mystery Spot” and “In the Beginning,” but who also wrote “Family Remains.”

Click here to watch three video clips from "Death Takes a Holiday."

Click here to see photos from “Death Takes a Holiday.”

“On the Head of a Pin” (March 19)

Official CW Description: “Someone found Lucifer’s sword and is using it to kill angels. Castiel and Uriel have captured Alastair and ask Dean to use the torturing skills he learned in Hell to extract information from him so they can stop the murders. Sam is concerned Dean can’t handle the job but Dean agrees to do it. However, when Alastair reveals some shocking information, Dean’s world is shattered.”

This sounds like a very dark, serious episode, which is why it’s shocking that it was written by Ben Edlund, the comic genius behind such episodes as “Monster Movie” and “Wishful Thinking.” But with this kind of story, I imagine this attempt to try serious, hardcore dark action and drama will be a success.


“It’s a Terrible Life” (March 26)

Official CW Description: “Dean and Sam are living very normal and separate lives. Dean is a corporate man who enjoys health drinks and listens to news radio vs. rock stations. He works at a company called Sandover Bridge & Iron Company alongside Sam who is in Tech Support. It seems as if the two do not know each other. However, after co-workers start committing suicide at an alarming rate, the two find themselves working side by side to solve the murders.”

Yup, it’s an alternate reality episode! If that description alone doesn’t tickle your funny bone, you should see a doctor. This episode was written by Sera Gamble and is the one she talked about when BuddyTV interviewed her at the end of 2008.

Interestingly enough, BuddyTV interviewed the writers for all three of these episodes back in December 2008, where they spoke briefly about some of these episodes. Click below to read and listen to our exclusive interviews with these Supernatural writers.

'Supernatural' Goes Meta with April 2 Episode

NOTE: In TV, "meta" refers to anything that refers to itself. For instance, "Hollywood Babylon" is considered a meta episode because it makes self aware references iike when Dean thinks that L.A. looks a lot like Vancouver, it's because the show is actually filmed in Vancouver.

This week’s Supernatural should be brutal and dark, with Dean torturing Alastair. However, the following two weeks are looking to be comedy gold, which will either make you very happy or very angry.

The CW released an official description for the April 2 episode, “The Monster at the End of This Book,” and no, it’s not an April Fool’s prank. Supernatural is going meta to an extent that writer Sera Gamble said will even trump “Hollywood Babylon.” Continue reading for the full details on this episode.

Here’s the official CW description: “Sam and Dean are shocked to discover a series of comic books titled “Supernatural” that accurately detail their lives as demon hunters. They track down the writer, Carver Edlund, who explains he has visions of the brothers that he then turns into comic books. Chuck reveals that Lilith is coming and she has a plan for Sam.”

If that last sentence is confusing, it could be because of a little minute change. Earlier reports listed the comic book artist’s name as Chuck Shurley, but perhaps at the last minute the show decided to make it even more meta by naming him after two of the show’s most popular writers.

Let’s go through the number of things that are awesome about that description.

-The comic book artist’s name is an obvious homage to Supernatural writers Jeremy Carver and Ben Edlund. So already, the meta episode is being ultra meta-y.

-The comic book nature in general allows the show to explore the entire history of the show, which should hopefully bring back reminders of some of fans favorite (and least favorite) episodes and storylines.

-Lilith is finally back, meaning the parade of awesome villains can continue, and her arrival should spell the beginning of the end of the season.

-Sam gets a storyline! While much of season 4 has dealt with the angels’ plan for Dean, it’s important to remember that Lilith and her demon army have a plan for Sam.

-The comic book artist is played by Rob Benedict. You will probably recognize his face if not his name. If you watch Head Case on Starz, you know him as Jeremy Berger. If you watched Felicity, you know him as Richard Coad. And if you watched Alias religiously like I did, you could remember his guest appearance as Brodien, the nerdy agent Sydney turned into a goth guy in the beginning of season 4.

The Supernatural episode “The Monster at the End of This Book” airs April 2 at 9pm on the CW.

Supernatural: Episode Titles for the End of Season 4

Supernatural is heading into the home stretch of season 4. With only five episodes left, every minute counts as Sam and Dean Winchester race to stop Lilith from breaking the remaining 66 Seals and bringing Lucifer to Earth.

Unfortunately, fans may not get to see these final episodes uninterrupted. Early, unconfirmed reports suggest that more breaks are scheduled, and the scheduling of these final episodes might leave fans hanging for longer than they’d like. There are also recently released episode titles for all the remaining episodes, though they might give away more than you’d like.

SPOILER WARNING: Read no further if you don’t want to know what the final Supernatural episodes are called.

This Thursday brings the highly meta “The Monster at the End of This Book,” in which Sam and Dean discover a book series called Supernatural about themselves. That paradox will leave fans scratching their heads for three weeks, because Supernatural is taking yet another break.

The next batch of episodes return April 23 with “Jump the Shark,” and based on that title, fans could be in for a third straight “funny” episode. However, that paves the way for the final three very serious-sounding episodes.

April 30 brings “The Rapture.” This religious title certainly suggests that the angels will play a key role as Dean nears his ultimate destiny.

The penultimate episode of the season airs on May 7 and is called “When the Levees Break.” That bodes poorly for the Winchesters as it portends plenty of bad things ahead.

According to a blog post on Saving Faith’s Sandbox, the next week will be excruciating for Supernatural fans as the show will take yet another break on May 14. It’s not until the next week, May 21, that the Supernatural season 4 finale will air.

But it’s a big one, because the episode is called “Lucifer Rising.” Aside from being a brilliant companion title to the season premiere, “Lazarus Rising,” this episode promises to deliver what the whole season has been leading up to. Will Lucifer rise? Given this show’s history with season finales, I’d have to bet ‘Yes.”


Based on absolutely nothing but my own wild speculation, here’s my current theory: in the final moments of the season, Lucifer rises after the final Seal is broken. However, in order to walk the Earth, Lucifer must take a human body just like all the other demons. What body does he choose? Wile Sam might be the obvious guess, I’m leaning towards the even cooler possibility that Lucifer will take the form of John Winchester. I know the evil father is a bit of a cliche, but it could still be undeniable cool.

Will Sam Go Evil?

Ah, Thursday. It's the best/worst day of TV, and one of the things that makes it such a pleasure/burden for us is the thrill of Supernatural, which (buried though it is in a grueling time slot with The Office, Grey's Anatomy and CSI) continues to be one of the standouts of the night, and heck, of the week.

As SPN barrels toward its season-four finale, we thought it fit to chat up writer-producer Ben Edlund about what to expect. Read on to find out what he told us exclusively about Sam's blood addiction finally catching up to him and about where Cas fits in to the series' future...

Good or Evil? At this point, the question of Sam's morality remains open, but Edlund reveals that Sammeh's blood addiction has consequences that are out of his control: "The model of an addict bottoming out and becoming basically something else, almost a creature of reflex, is one of the things he's going to have to face. And that's going to make trouble for Dean and Sam—they don't agree on this particular issue. Dean's not happy about it." Creature of reflex, huh? Love the idea of a more animalistic Sam and of Dean having to do something about it!

Angel Baby: As promised late last year, Castiel (Misha Collins) will be a regular in season five, but Edlund says we don't have to worry about the new addition throwing off the balance between the Winchesters. According to Edlund, "He's not going to be Joe Pesci to Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the back seat going, 'Ah, guys! I'm hungry now! Let's go eat!' Cas already has his own mode of transportation—he already gets around pretty fast." Long story short, SPN didn't turn into a wacky buddy comedy while you weren't looking. Says Edlund, "I don't imagine that it's going to be three guys in a car with a baby. Although it's good to throw something cute into season five. Maybe a puppy. Or an evil kitten that they keep in the glove box." (And we shall call that kitten Moe...)

The Dark Is Rising: According to Edlund, everything we've seen over this past, amazing season is really just a setup: "This season is a stage-setting season for next season," which, of course, is the war between dark and light. Says Edlund, "I don't want to go too far into the details of what happens when two forces clash...Look at this season as buildup to something even bigger that, of course, I cannot talk about or [show runner] Eric [Kripke] would be mad at me." And who will be the enemies in that war? Per Edlund, "Lilith is still a problem. At least Sam and Dean are dealing with her presence in the world as a problem. This is a show about averting the Apocalypse."

The Big Guy: Lilith is still kicking around, but according to Edlund, it's her boss who's really the problem: "Lucifer is more of an awe-inspiring force. There's such a massiveness to the power and the danger represented by that being. Insinuation will be our model." Basically, we'll know he's there, but we might not get to see him until the very end...

The Ladies: For those of you worried that Ruby and/or Anna will be hanging around more rather than less in season five, Edlund has some consoling words for you: "For my own two cents, I don't feel like this is a story about either of these two guys finding love. They're not at that phase in their lives. It's about two guys gearing up for and hoping to avert the Apocalypse. So dating is not utmost."

Are you loving season four of Supernatural as much as we are? Which day of TV kills you the most? Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday? Post in the comments!
