Supernatural is back! New episode tonight at 9pm, so post your thoughts. Click HERE for my full recap.
Hooray for mythology! I love it when the show adds more layers to is ongoing story, and season 8 got a nice boost for the second half with some major new elements.
First, there’s an Angel Tablet! Of course there is, and now Crowley can go on the offensive, trying to find it to destroy Heaven once and for all. Although I have to admit, the fact that God would create a blueprint for everything about angels and Heaven is kind of short-sighted, like building a Death Star where one well-placed shot could destroy the whole thing.
Also, Samandriel’s comment about “they’re controlling us” perked up my ears. Does this mean Naomi isn’t really an angel? Is she some uber-bad, unknown creature that is controlling the angels? Maybe I’ve been watching too much American Horror Story: Asylum this season, but my first thought was that she’s an alien. But I’m sure that’s not it.
This was also a great episode for ending those annoying distractions from the first half of the year. Benny and Amelia both got the boot, though I doubt it’s permanent, at least for Benny. Still, I’m always happy to see “bros over hos” win out in the end.
This was everything I want from a mid-season premiere, chock full of big mythology elements to push the big season 8 story arc forward. I can’t wait to find out what Naomi is and what’s written on the Angel Tablet. Let’s just hope Dean learns to control his laptop pop-ups in the future.
