A New Blog.

Hey there everyone!  I’m still going to occasionally post here but I’ve decided it’s very hard to keep to just one blog when that one blog only has one topic.  So I’ve started a new one and I think it’s quite appropriate to put the link here seeing as how my first interview on it is from an actor who guest stared on Supernatural once so it all fits together lol

Anyway, hope you enjoy!

A New Blog.

What’s Next?

SUPERNATURAL PREMIERE IS TOMORROW NIGHT!!!!  I am so excited about this that words can not begin to describe it which is impressive for a writer.

Anyway, I decided on the eve of the premiere to just jot down a few key points that I really really hope they address over the upcoming season.  It doesn’t even have to be in the first episode, just at some point before the finale.  Preferably sooner than that.

1.) The first thing is, I’m sure, at the front of everyone’s minds.  Mary Winchester.  Is she sticking around for the long haul?  Is there some kind of catch involved with Amara bringing her back?  The thing I’ve always loved the most about this show is the brothers’ bond with each other.  It’s them against the world.  And as much as I love Mary and I’m thrilled Dean and Sam will get to spend at least a little time with her, I’m worried about how she will fit in with them and their lifestyle.

2.) The British Men of Letters.  They are apparently a very smoothly run, long standing group and yet they only JUST decided to notice that people have been using their American Chapter Bunker?  Sam and Dean have been living/working there for going on about 4 years now, having been given the key in Season 8.  Why do they care now??

3.) Lucifer to me seems kind of like a young adult who doesn’t know what they want to do for a living so they bounce around from job to job, looking for the right one.  He tried starting the apocalypse and wound up in a hole in the ground.  He came back using Castiel’s body to try and take down Amara and got taken down instead.  So now he’s a rockstar?  Maybe that could be interesting but I’m a little doubtful on that front.  I’m taking a “wait and see” policy.

 4.) I definitely want to see some more Jody, Claire, and Alex.  I think they could do a spin off show called Supernatural Jr. or something where we follow their lives, but just to see them in one or two more episodes and find out how everyone’s doing, especially after the whole Vampire attack in the last episode we saw them in would be great.

5.) Crowley and Rowena.  Talk about dysfunctional family issues.  I love both of them and they’d seemed to sort of put aside their “each trying to kill the other” tirade at the end of the season to work together with the Winchesters, Lucifer, and God to fight Amara, but now that that issue has gone by the wayside, I’m very curious to see what will happen next and who will triumph.

And the mention of God brings me to my final wishlist item.  The biggest one.

6.) Over the course of the few episodes that we’d seen God in person, he called out Lucifer and Metatron…albeit briefly for both…on their little trying to be God stints but he never once mentioned Castiel’s attempt.  And Cas’ attempt was far more disastrous than either of the other two, so I’m dying to find out what he would say about that.  Of course, that would only happen if he returned from his and Amara’s sibling retreat, which hasn’t been made clear if that’s going to happen or not yet.  But for the love of Chuck, I hope he does.

All will be revealed.  Starting tomorrow.  As I might have mentioned, I CAN’T WAIT!!!

Bring it on Supernatural.

The Road So Far…

So I had to wait a full day after Supernatural Day was over to post this, just to give myself the proper amount of time to really put into words what this show has meant to me over the last nearly dozen years now. Since 2005, when those fateful words “Dad’s on a hunting trip, and he hasn’t been back in a few days” were uttered, “Supernatural” has been captivating audience members of all ages, from all backgrounds in all different countries. It’s hard to really pinpoint the many reasons for this but I think I’ve nailed down at least a few of them.

1.) “Supernatural” is not just a show about monster hunters. I mean the concept of fighting and killing all the creepy crawly things that go bump in the night is definitely what drew me in those first few episodes, but if that’s all it was, I think a lot of people would lose interest after a while and this show would have been packing its bags by season three. But once you get past the outer shell of two brothers crossing the country to slay creatures, there is so much more.

Unless you happened to be raised by yourself without a single living soul for company ever, I think that the biggest theme within the show that radiates with everyone is family. Seeing how far someone will go for their family and learning that the word ‘family’ need not only describe those related to you by blood ((thanks for the lesson, Bobby!)) is pulled off in an incredibly powerful manner in this show.

Another concept we get to see a lot of throughout the years is the ever changing line between good and evil and exactly what it means to be either. We get to see multiple characters tread that line…and a few even play an exasperating game of leapfrog with it…proving that no one is only one or the other, but that there is a little of both in each of us. What we really come away with from that with is the knowledge and assurance that it’s the part you choose to act on that shows which of the two you truly are.

2.) “Supernatural” is more than just the show. “Supernatural” is the people in the show, the people behind the show, and the people who watch the show. The community built by “Supernatural” is one of the largest and strongest in the world.  Everyone in the “Supernatural” family has a common interest ((and by interest I mean obsession)) that brings them together.  I have seen some truly touching stories of people who have never met each other in person going the extra mile to make another Supernaturalite feel special or loved.

The cast members’ interactions with each other and with the fans are truly genuine ((and I can vouch for this having met several of them at a recent con)), and turn them from on-screen characters into real people.  And these real people are real life heroes to a lot of us with the kinds of charities they support and the fundraisers they create.  Heroes I am proud to have watched grown up over the last decade plus both on screen and off.  And I think we’ve grown up with them.

Unless of course we’re sitting on our car jamming out to “Eye of the Tiger.”

So for my next list, I’ve decided to go with a little something called ::

Life Lines.

Returning From The Dead.

So I, like our beloved show Supernatural does on occasion ((and in fact is doing right now due to the season coming to a close)), took a little hiatus but I am back to posting now and thought I’d kick things off with a little list I like to call ::

11 Reasons You Know You Should Have Been Born In The Supernatural Reality & Not Ours.

1.) Every time you see a Chevy Impala on the road you wave at it and say “hi baby” even if your windows might accidentally be rolled down and the person driving the car gives you the strangest look you might have ever received.

2.) You never say “oh my god” or “for the love of god” anymore, but instead replace the word “God” with “Chuck” because come on, he was absolutely hysterical & a perfect God.

3.) Every time…and I mean every time…the lights flicker, instead of remaining calm like a normal person and looking for the fuse box, you look for the salt.

4.) Every time someone mentions the word ‘devil’ or ‘satan’ you just start cracking up thinking of Lucifer sulking in Dean’s room, listening to loud punk music in an angsty teenage rebellion type way.

5.) You will never look at pudding the same way again.

6.) LARPing is actually cool & fun & not at all lame.

7.) You are more certain than ever before that family truly doesn’t end with blood.

8.) You know that death is not always goodbye forever. 

9.) Families never give up on each other. 

10.) You know that no matter how badly you fight with your siblings, you will never ever come close to being the world’s largest sibling feud, thanks to Chuck & Amara, who should really be their own tv show.

AND…

11.) You are well aware that the driver picks the music & shotgun shuts their cake hole.

Returning From The Dead.

Last Words.

So I’ve been thinking a lot about last words lately.  I think this probably stems from the fact that I lost my absolute favorite person in the world, my grandfather, in May, and ever since then I find myself trying to remember what his last words to me were.

Then I thought about “Supernatural” & all the people Sam & Dean have lost over the years.  And I realized that almost every single person they love that they lost has more than one set of last words to them.  Let’s take a stroll down last words lane, shall we?

John Winchester — ((before he died)) He asked Sam for a cup of coffee, & told Dean he might have to kill his brother if he couldn’t save him. — ((after he died)) As a young John Winchester, he was informing the boys in alarm, “I drew one on the back of the door. I turned around. And when I looked back again, it was a smudge.”

Mary Winchester — ((before she died)) To Dean, she says “Let’s say goodnight to your brother” & she shouts “Sammy” while running back to the nursery. — ((after she died)) This one is a little tricky.  Her younger version says “there’s no more holy oil” to them before the big fight begins in “The Song Remains The Same” episode.  However, three episodes later, the boys find themselves in heaven reliving past memories & in that one, the true Mary Winchester gives Dean a hug & says “you are my little angel.”

Bobby Singer — ((before he died)) Waking briefly from his coma, he delivers his famous “idjits” line. — ((after he died)) Right before the boys burn his flask, he tells them, “Here’s to… running into you guys on the other side. Only… not too soon. All right?”

Jo Harvelle — ((before she died)) When Dean tells her he’s planning to see her on the other side, probably sooner rather than later, she gives him a shotgun & says, “make it later.”  — ((after she died)) She returns as a ghost when Osiris has Dean on trial in Season 7.  She tells Dean “he’s making me do this” when about to kill Dean in an explosion.

Ellen Harvelle — ((before she died)) She informed Dean to “kick it in the ass.  Don’t miss” right before the explosion she died in. — ((after she died)) This one shouldn’t really count because the timeline was erased but technically she returned in Season 6’s “My Heart Will Go On”, helping with the research from Bobby’s.  Her last words on the phone were “Yeah, me neither.  I’ll keep digging.”

Kevin Tran — ((before he died)) To Sam, or rather to Gadreel, Kevin says about Dean, “between you and me, I’m a little worried about him”. — ((after he died)) As a ghost, after reuniting with his Mom, Kevin asks the boys for a favor & when getting an agreeable response, his final word to them is “good.”

Charlie Bradbury — ((before she died…the first time)) Right when the witch is about to kill Dean, she shouts “no” & leaps in front of him. — ((before she died again)) Charlie, in the motel’s bathroom with Elton Styne bearing down on her, tells Dean on the phone, “I can’t do that Dean.”

Pamela Barnes — ((before she died)) She told Sam in a whisper, “If you think you have good intentions, think again”. — ((after she died)) Up in heaven, her parting words to Sam were “watch your ass” & her parting words to Dean, after kissing him, were, “Yup, just how I imagined.”

Ash — ((before he died)) Ash tells Dean on the phone, “Make time, okay? Because this – Not only does this almost definitely help you find your brother, this is, ah, it’s huge. So get here. Now.” — ((after he died)) At his little roadhouse heaven, Ash helps the boys find a path to the garden & just before they leave, he says, “Gentlemen, don’t mean to be a downer or anything, but I’m sure I’ll be seeing you again.”

Losing someone is never going to be easy & maybe we cling to these ideas of last words as some kind of comfort but in reality, if you really think about it, “last” words sounds maybe like you’ve given up.  Like you truly never expect or want to hear their voice again, whether it be through a memory in your head, your heart, or even a home video.  Like you never want to tell or hear stories about them.  Like you just want to erase them from existence by placing a period on their life with “last words”.

If “Supernatural” has taught me anything beyond its core messages about good & evil, light & dark, & family, it has taught me that living a good life leaves marks on other people.  You can continue living through the people you loved, touched & inspired while alive.  SO maybe, just maybe, like in “Supernatural”, last words don’t always have to be last words.

🙂
