  • Supernatural goes the Lord of the Rings - with a twist. An awesome episode!

    9.5
    The episode starts a little slow; Bobby isn't too happy about being in a wheelchair, and Castiel not being able to help him, apparently, isn't really helping.



    One of the most amusing scenes of the episode was that since Sam and Dean are now hidden from angels and demons alike, Castiel has to make an old-fashioned phone call to find them. Sweet. And being a good angel, he also comes with news: the plan to kill Lucifer sucks, but he has an alternative; they shall look for God and ask for his help.



    Sam and Dean are a little doubtful of Castiel's plan (although it doesn't sound all that absurd compared to everything else going on in the show lately), but we all soon have something else to think about when Rufus gives them a call from a town in Colorado that has been taken over by Demons.



    The longer Sam and Dean are in town, the weirder things seem. It takes a while, though, before pieces start falling together, and the tension is very well done. The relationship between the brothers is tense, and once they decide to split up - again! - in the end of the episode, I'm not sure what they are trying to accomplish this time around.



    Titus Welliver was amazing as War, who has a very light, amusing look at his purpose/existence on Earth. His dialogue was thrilling and amazing to listen to. The ring of power and the crack at Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings was awesome, and I look forward to seeing if the other Horsemen also have rings. Perhaps someone starts collecting them, who knows...



    I'm really looking forward to next week because this was definitely a good episode - although the end was a little disappointing. I wish Sam and Dean could move on from their grumpiness because it's getting really old by now...moreless
  • WHAT THE ....

    10
    So here we are episode two, Well they didn't let me down, another great episode, loved seeing the returns of Ellen, Jo and Rufus, and I liked the guy who played War, does'nt he always play a slimeball?? if not sorry but you were great, very sly and I especially enjoyed the little wink to Dean when he convinced the survivors that both Dean and Ellen were demons,

    Now everyone comments on what a great actor Jensen is and I agree but please what about Jared , I think he is very underrated, and does a very good job, did you see that last scene after he and Dean parted, not just the look on his face but the whole body language as he walked away, and then the little pat of the Impala, excellent, so roll on episode three,

    and if you see God, tell him to bring legs!!moreless
  • A surprising ending and a dark plot makes for one solid hour of Supernatural

    9.0
    I had to put Supernatural on the backburner for a little while to make room for Fringe and The Office, but I don't know why I did that. While The Office and Fringe are both quality shows, Supernatural is one that won't be around any longer than this year, so this season, Eric Kripke and co. are pulling out all the stops, ensuring that this season will be one of the best, if not THE best.



    The episode starts with Castiel arriving to inform the brothers that he's going off in search of God and goes on to introduce one of the most maniacal demons yet: War, the first Horseman of the Apocalypse. Sam and Dean respond to a phone call from Rufus, one of Bobby's old friends and find a town that is seemingly infested with demons. However, these demons don't respond to holy water, rock salt or exorcisms. It turns out that War has come to this little town and is turning everybody against each other. What results is a tense battle between good and good with War pulling the strings.



    This episode, combined with last week's, create the perfect start to the season. We have plots that are different from the overall mythology of the show, but still combine with it in the end. And as for the ending? Sam actually walking away from hunting and leaving Dean on his own makes things look very grim in the near future. One can only imagine how things will turn out when Lucifer starts wreaking havoc.



    So far, the season is awesome, and I don't see any point where it might lose it's quality.moreless
  • Croatoan virus is battiling the boys this week

    8.5
    Sam and Dean headed into a place where Croatoan virus had spread through the town, Sam and Dean team up with Ellen to save the townies and find Jo, but Dean still doesn't trust Sam. Turns out he's got a reason though, seeing as Sam was pretty close to closing in on some demon blood while pulverising them. Well in the end it actually turned out that some mysterious bloke turned the townspeople against each other, splitting them and making them believe that other "team" were demons, causing mayhem everywhere.



    Sam decided that he couldn't do this anymore and with the almost sudden urge of demon blood in this episode he opted out with Dean agreeing to go solo, well I can't really see these two being apart from each other for that long.moreless
  • Could it get any more religious?

    8.5
    That's really the theme now of Supernatural it seems. All things now in the episodes are religious themed, no more boogie men, or at least not so far. Strange how much the show has changed since it first came out huh? Not that I don't like the show anymore, it's just interesting to note the changes. This episode is not extremely different then what we have been seeing last season, but it does have a hint more religion in it. Things were getting out of hand with demons in this episode, but in the end it wasn't what we thought, it was something else. A good episode overall, but I did feel like the last episode was a little bit better than this one. Good to see some old characters again though, just a strange way to put them back into the story. They certainly have some explaining to do about at least one of the characters returns this episode.moreless
