    what is the slide guitar background in the 16th episode of 6th sam finds samuel and kills him.. does any one know the artist..
  • What's going on?? Feels like Supernatural is coming to and end. Either that or the writers have just lost it. (Some spoilers)

    This season has mostly been weird. Sam has no soul and is evil. Sam regains his soul but has no real memory of what has happened. Sam and Dean fall through a window and suddenly find them selves in our world. Here we learn they are not on speaking terms, "Sam" has married his co-star "Ruby" and the actor playing "Cas" is a Twitter-junkie. (The part with Jared Padalecki marring Genevieve Cortes is true, they were wed 02/27/2010.) Now all of a sudden three characters are killed off and at the same time a new villain is introduced. Is it just me or are the writers having a writers block of the messier kind?? This has to be one of the worst seasons of all! I miss how it was in the beginning, when Sam and Dean road around killing of strange monsters and whatnot. But ever since religion was dragged in it all has gone downwards. To bad, Jensen and Padalecki are excellent and they got the best lines ever at times! Like how they sometimes seem to be acting just natural with each other. Also that they really are the age they portray is a huge kudos. How many times have we seen actors that are in their 30s trying to come of as teens or 20-somethings. No, I'll miss this show in some ways, but it feels like it's heading towards it's grave. RIP Supernatural - hope they remember to sprinkle salt over the remains before burning!moreless
  • There Is None

    I didn't like the story of this ep. A demonic worm REALLY.. like a "mini" demon - possesses people and leaves them blank about what happened to them. Why twisting something already done before?

    And what's with the killing! They brought the Campbells then they killed them without taking any benefit of their characters. They could have done great things with the their story line, We could have learned what happened to Sam during that year, for instance. I Also feel that the way Samuel died was frustrating and meaningless - just a victim - even Dean didn't get the chance to quench his raging fire. If the writers wanted to point that as a hunter in the line of duty there has to be casualties, wasn't killing Samuel along with Gwen enough? Why to kill Rufus? Three - if I may say - unnecessary deaths. WOW, that's a lot.

    Finally Eve is on action. Well, there isn't much to talk about concerning either Eve or Julia Maxwell - the actress who plays her - since they didn't quite do anything yet to judge. I can't wait to find out more about Eve's character.

    I don't know what's happening in the writers' room but I'm not pleased with it. Since the show got back from the hiatus, it's going down - except "The French mistake". This might be due to the fact that they cramped many plots in the season - well, half the season: the war at Heaven, the Purgatory and the souls, which didn't even got mentioned yet. They wasted a couple of episodes when there are only six left and a lot of things to cover.moreless
  • Momma's Got A Brand New Baby!!

    ..And Then There Were None-Sam, Dean, and Bobby search for the Mother of All's most recent child, but run into trouble when they discover that Samuel and Gwen are also looking for the creature. As things deteriorate, Samuel and Bobby argue over the best way to handle the situation.

    Blood, shocks and Goo!? Yup, it's definately Supernatural!! I really like the episodes that find the main characters trapped in one location, it's usually some of the best and most intense episodes of the series and "...Then There Were None" is no exception. This episode was full of some great twists and shocks. The beginning with Eve was effectively creepy but when Dean shot Gwen (the last of the annoying cousins, yay!) all hell broke loose in a great way. I loved the unexpected turns with the slug demon (never given a name) and the interaction between Sam, Dean, Bobby and Rufus. Scenes of them checking their ears and babysitting each other were hilarious. I'm also glad that Sam finally got what was coming to him and more fitting that Sam was the one to kill him since they had such a close relationship,

    I also liked the back story between Rufus and Bobby, it really added depth to both characters and the fact that Rufus would never forgive Bobby even after all they've been through together was pretty heartbreaking. The conclusion of the episode was full of suspense and Bobby killing Rufus was shocking and ultimately saddening. The worm demon's little message from Eve was chilling as was Dean and Sam killing it while watching Bobby's body drip with all black goo. It's one of the episodes where the brothers don't necessarily come out on top and they lose another friend. A great episode which pushes the "the Mother of All" storyline in a good direction.moreless
  • Abysmal

    First we had an episode where supernatural was a show and now we are doing episodes about other shows? The mother of all, supposedly the most evil thing in the universe, has, for this episode, created the mother of all....worms. Kinda anti-climatic huh? You know those this last family guy. Where one character clones himself and inevitably the two stewie's are naked and next to each other and you can't tell who's who, and brian is holding the gun deciding which one is the real stewie? This reminds me of that. Is it dean or the worm who killed blank? etc. Well the worm needs a host, like Animorphs(havent thought of that in a while.) And the worm much like demons, takes control and leaves the victim with no memories. I guess the writers wanted to do a badass demon, but settled on the worm as a change of pace. For the first time ever, while watching the show on the couch i fell asleep halfway through. It was just that boring. I watched all of it now and I say the last 2 minutes were decent. Would have rather those 2 minutes been the show and after 2 minutes program ends.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Sam calls Dean's number to find him, Dean's phone plays a default ringtone instead of his usual guitar ringtone.

    • When Bobby is attacking Dean and Sam with his knife, his grip shifts from a regular grip to a reverse grip several times as the camera shot changes.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Eve: God doesn't care about you.
      Rick: Sure He does.
      Eve: Your Father made you and then abandoned you. So you pray. You see signs where there's nothing. But truth is, your Apocalypse came and went, and you didn't even notice. A mother would never abandon her children like He did. You'll see.

    • Rufus: So.
      Bobby: So what?
      Rufus: So we partnering on this or not? Come on, it's not rocket surgery. We're here, let's do this. Just like old times.
      Bobby: As long as I get to drive.
      Rufus: Hell, no.

    • Sam: It really is good to see you, Rufus.
      Rufus: I can believe it. It must get old dealing with this miserable cuss here all by yourselves.
      Sam: Is it that obvious?
      Bobby: Why don't you three get a room?

    • Bobby: So... you're Samuel.
      Samuel: You must be the guy pretending to be their father.
      Bobby: Somebody ought to.

    • Dean: I'm not in the mood. I just had a 12" herpes crawl out of my ear.
      Sam: What?
      Dean: You heard me.

    • Sam: You saying he wasn't a monster when I ganked him?
      Rufus: One way to find out. Bobby, you got a cranial saw in the car?
      Bobby: Of course.

    • Rufus: And I want you and you... okay, I want you and you to watch him and him... all right, if anything crawls out of anybody, step on it.

    • Sam: What he did to us... but...
      Dean: There's a but?
      Sam: I can't help but think , what would Mom say?
      Dean: You know what I think Mom would say? She'd say, "Just because you're blood doesn't make you family. You got to earn that."

    • Rufus: (to Dean, Sam, Bobby) This can't be the afterlife because the three of you are here.

    • Dean: Hey there, you little herpes.
      Sam: Why do you keep talking about herpes?
      Dean: What? I don't. Shut up. Shut up!

    • Dean: Who is she, this Eve bitch?
      Slug: The Mother of All of us. And the end of all of you. By the time she's done, there'll be more creatures than humans. You'll live in pens. We'll serve up your young and call it veal.

    • Bobby: It was Omaha. It was my fault. And he never let it go.
      Dean: Well, he should have.
      Bobby: You don't know what I did, Dean.
      Dean: It doesn't matter.
      Bobby: What do you mean, it doesn't...?
      Dean: I mean, at the end of the day, you two are family. Life is short, and ours are shorter than most. We gonna spend it wringing our hands? Something's going to get us, eventually. And when my guts get ripped out, just so you two know, we're good. Blanket apology for all the crap that anybody's done, all the way around.
      Sam: Some of us pulled a lot of crap, Dean.
      Dean: Well, clean slate.
      Sam: Okay.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Title:
      Referencing the 1939 novel by mystery author Agatha Christie. In the book, ten people find themselves stranded on an island and realize that one of them is a murderer trying to eliminate the other nine. Each person dies in a manner similar to the children's nursery rhyme, "Ten Little Indians." At the end, all ten individuals are apparently murdered, leaving the case unsolved except for a postscript when the murderer's explanation is provided.

    • Dean: It's like a Khan worm on steroids.
      Referencing the 1982 movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. The title villain places larval Ceti eels in the ears of those he wishes to interrogate. The larva eventually kill the host, although in a few cases they will leave the victim on their own.

    • Samuel: Just because you're Dr. Jekyll at the moment doesn't mean you get all high and mighty.
      Referencing, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a story by Robert Louis Stevenson, originally published in 1886. In the tale, Dr. Jekyll, a peaceful man, created a potion that unleashed his "evil side", the murderous Mr. Hyde. Since its publication, the term "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" has come into colloquial use, to refer to the good and evil parts of a person.

    • Rufus: All right, let's play Operation.
      Referencing the Milton-Bradley board game (now manufactured by Hasbro) where players attempt to remove small plastic pieces from a picture of a patient, Cavity Sam, using a pair of metal tweezers. The edges of the holes are lined with metal, and grazing them with the metal tweezers sets off Cavity Sam's red light-bulb and a buzzer noise. The game has spawned numerous variants, including patients such as Buzz Lightyear, Iron Man, and a Dalek.

    • Dean: No way out now, Sluggo.
      Referencing The Mr. Bill Show, a series of skits on Saturday Night Live, and Mr. Sluggo, the villainous clay figure that torment the hapless Mr. Bill. Sluggo rarely gets to do much, since Mr. Hands is the one who ends up inflicting various cruel fates on Mr. Bill.
