This is a first for me on this page, reviewing one of my favourite shows of all time, Supernatural. I’m beyond excited to see what this season holds, let’s get to it.
As always, we’ll go through some of the bigger moments from the episode.
Dean and his mum meet again:
At the end of last season, The Darkness brought back the thing Dean wanted most in the world, his mother Mary. It was a really heart aching moment when they met each other again as Mary didn’t know or recognise Dean until he explained it all. I think a big part of this season will be seeing how Sam and Dean react to their mum (I’m not American, it’s mum over here!) being back and it’ll be interesting to note if their ambitions and relationships change. I’m also guessing that Mary and Castiel will have a pretty fun relationship, I can’t work out whether or not Cas thinks this is a good thing as of yet but there may definitely be some jealousy going on which is kind of funny. Mary’s face when Castiel hugs Dean was fantastic, it was a bit of a wink and a nod to the Destiel fans out there.
Sam and the British Men of Letters:
Season Eleven ended with Sam being shot by a woman claiming to be part of the British Men of Letters. Well, turns out that is true and she is kidnapping Sam to attempt to get locations of hierarchy’s out of him so they can make America safe from monsters. As it so happens, there hasn’t been a single monster related death in Britain since 1965 because they plan for monsters, instead of reacting to them like Sam and Dean do. Well, this lady missed a trick because she took Sam thinking that Dean was dead, but he isn’t and he’s coming after her to kill her and save his brother. I’m sort of expecting a big team up here but I do believe we have many more people from the BMOE (I can’t be bothered to keep typing that out) to meet and see whether or not these guys are arrogant d*cks.
Other moments I did or didn’t enjoy:
- Watching Crowley follow Lucifer’s tracks is fun. Mark Sheppard plays the role so well and his comedic timing is spot on.
- Seeing the way Mary reacted to killing that other british women was interesting. Maybe she will want a life apart from Sam and Dean?
- Castiel is being very brutal, I think this will be a lot of his arch this season. He’s done taking peoples sh*t.
Overall, it was a good start to season twelve and I’m very excited for next week.
Episode rating: 7.5/10
