Thursdays for five years, Fridays for two years, Wednesdays for one year, and now Tuesdays. I think the CW expected it to die off on Friday night, but instead it's remained one of the network's top shows.
It's debut season on the WB, aired on Tuesday night for season 1, before relocating to Thursdays in the second year.

Ah, okay. I didn't start watching the show until the Season Two premiere (after which I promptly tore through Season One ). After looking it up on Wikipedia, it looks like most of Season One aired on Tuesdays before the WB moved it to Thursdays for its last few eps. You learn something new every day.

And Kevin was tough enough to resist Crowley, at least to the extent of letting him go; Dean declared Kevin family; Abbadon established herself as a more aggressive Big Bad than Crowley; Crowley has been confirmed as compromised by last season's purging; and having an Angel inside him seems to be healing Sam's mind as well as his injuries. Although Zeke's wings looked a bit tattered and torn to me.
^Yes, they did. I thought that was a nice touch.
Me, too. I don't think many people noticed, though.

I found it odd that Zeke had so much power at his disposal when just days before he was barely able to stand.
Nice to see new hunters show up even if they end up being demon fodder. Now where is Garth?

Maybe the writer's haven't forgetten just how powerful Sam really is. I mean, if he can supercharge himself on demon blood, who's to say what he can do with a full-blown angel inside of him.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

There was one continuity issue that nagged at me. When we first learned about the Men of Letters bunker, we were told it was warded against any known evil. It is why it is supposed to be such a safe place.

With those wards in place, how could the Winchesters bring the King of Hell into the bunker? It should have been impossible.

But I thought Crowley had been spiritually castrated after Dean tortured him and performed a ritual last season.

He still seemed pretty evil to me in the way he tried to torment Kevin.

Right. One of Sammy's missions was to exorcise a demon, so the brothers decided to go with Crowley.

They had recordings of the actual Men of Letters bringing demons into the bunker, and that entire room was designed for such things.

I believe the wards are more about keeping the location secret more than anything else (hence the blindfold and earphones they put Crowley in). Sort of like the wards etched onto the Winchesters' bones keep angels or demons from being able to find them. But if they're invited in/brought in/send out a signal/whatever, the wards are pretty useless. Maybe a bit of the whole legendary "can't enter unless invited, but the invitation can be revoked" schtick from vampire legends thrown in for good measure.

That and/or it just completely nullifies any powers they try to use within the bunker.

It's one of those things you usually can ignore but with Crowley in that perfectly pristine trunk of the Impala I couldn't help but wonder where they keep their belongings. I suspect there's a pocket dimension in the glove compartment.

Obviously, the Men of Letters bunker has access to TARDIS technology.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

Really enjoyed the last episode. Abbadon is a good villain, and any episode with Crowley can't be too bad. I always enjoy it when we get to meet other hunters.

What ever happened to the spin-off, is that still in the works? I just realized I haven't heard anything about it in a while.

The plan is that a backdoor pilot would be aired near the end of this season. If it does well in ratings and reaction we may see it in the 2014 season.
