I'm looking forward to this. It's been a dull day at work today, so I could use a little Supernatural tonight.

Hmm. Not the greatest episode, but lots of important set-up takes place.

I did, however, get a giggle out of Dean trying SOOO hard not to make the obvious joke he so clearly wanted to make.

Is the Frampton character new as of this episode? Was the reference to his previous encounter with the Winchesters an unseen story or is it from a previous episode, comic, novel, etc.?

Though not as great as the last handful of episodes, I thought last night's show was pretty good. It felt almost like a back-door pilot for the witch and familiar characters. The golem episode of a few weeks ago also felt that way (if I were a TV executive, I would greenlight that spin-off in a heartbeat -- the witch/familiar show, not so much). In fact, most of the episodes that've aired in 2013 have ended in a similar fashion: the featured character that week heads off into the wind, presumably to have further adventures in their given niche.

Charlie Bradbury (or is it "Carrie Heinlein" now?). Slacker and his golem. The hellhound-pursued woman.

Sadly the only featured character recently to not ride off into the sunset by show's end is Grandpa Winchester.

I wonder if the larger story arc of the season has them all returning in some way -- as a poster in another thread suggested, maybe they could all come back as a sort of Men of Letters / Justice League-type group.

In any event, the mythology reboot and the early season nine pick-up have me more excited for Supernatural then I've felt in years.

Also that werewolf girl who Sam and Dean decided not to go after.

Yup, that was me, and yes i agree. All those guest characters they introduced recently end up the same. Superpowered or supertalented people kinda burned by supernatural events, uprooted and driven away from the life they knew.

At this point i will put good money on all of them showing up in some kind of event episode and forming a team led by the Winchesters against demons and angels in some sort of Shadow War uprising of the "new" races.

Wasn't that also the basic jist of Highlander Season 6? Every episode is a backdoor pilot for a potential spin-off?

I've also been suggesting that these new characters-- and some old ones, like Garth-- will end up "manning" the batcave under the aegis of a revived Men of Letters. I love the idea.

This episode was another good standalone, although not quite as good as the others since the return from break. I liked the underground witches' speakeasy, and the look into this subculture of the witches-- apparently the bored, apathetic, rich ones-- was interesting.

Also we were gifted with another major hottie-- that's two weeks in a row. :rommie:

A Familiar. So that's what Gary Seven's cat is.

And James looked like a young Pierce Brosnan. He was played by Neve Campbell's brother.
