15 January 2013 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Supernatural is one of my favorite best shows, for years i was been completely in love with them.I watched Season 1 four times,Season 2 six times, Season 3 seven times, Season 4 two times,Season 6 and 7 once. I am watching Season 8 now and start from Season Eight is possible one of the best Seasons so far in year 2012 - 2013, I love this show. I was huge Supernatural fan for years but after Season Six which was the worst seasons that was possible ever made i gave up been their fan. Even forth season was bad but not that bad i stopped watching it for a year i thought this show is going down fast but i was really wrong. i was really surprised with season seven and Eight and episode 6 Southern Comfort is possible one of the best episodes in Supernatural Season Eight.Mostly what i love in this episode is Garth Fitzgerald IV played by one and only actor DJ Qualls. He come in season 7 started in Season Seven, Time for a Wedding! Episode 8 Season Seven and Party On, Garth Episode 18 he is so awesome.Please,please let him be in more episodes he is so awesome he is, I love this favorite Episodes so far in Season 8 are: Ep1 "We Need to Talk About Kevin" , Ep4 "Bitten", Ep5 "Blood Brother" and Ep6 "Southern Comfort" Season 1 - 2 was John Winchester their father played by actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan in Supernatural and he never showed up in any seasons anymore. His character did but it was played other actor he only appeared with his voice in Season 3. Season 2 - 3 was Gordon Walker played by Sterling K. Brown he was a vampire hunter he was really awesome that is why Season 3 was the best one ever to me. He was cut off during Season 3. Season 1

  • 2 was Azazel yellow eyed demon played by awesome actor Fredric Lehne

who killed Sam and Dean's mom and Jessica Season 1 Pilot since than the boys were hunting.He never showed up or appeared in this show anymore other actors were portraying him. He was cut off at end of Season 2. Meg Masters demon played Nicki Aycox she only played that demon once and she was cut off at end of Season One,but she appeared as special guest star in Season 4 Episode 2 but she was later portrayed by actress Rachel Miner Season 5 - 7. FBI Agent Victor Henriksen played by actor Charles Malik Whitfield who was chasing the boys Season 2 - 3 he never appeared later in the show. He also guest started with Nicki Aycox in Season 4 Episode 2 "Are You There, God? It's Me, Dean Winchester" Ruby demon was also cut off Season 3 - 4 she was portrayed by two actress Katie Cassidy Season 3 and Genevieve Padalecki Season 4. She was cut off at the end of Season 4. Bela Talbot a British English thief played by Lauren Cohan Season 3 was also cut off at the end of Season 3. Castiel angel by Misha Collins was cut off during this Season. Season 4
  • 8. Jim Beaver who plays Bobby Singer their father figure Season 1 -

7. was also cut off. Steven Williams who played Rufus Turner a hunter Season 3 - 6 was cut off after Season 6 he only played in One Episode in Season 7 Episode 10 Death's Door. Ellen Harvelle and Jo Harvelle both huntress played by actresses: Samantha Ferris and Alona Tal Season 2 - 5 were also both cut down during middle Season 5 but both appeared in one episode each one of actresses.Samantha Ferris in Season 6 Episode 17 My Heart Will Go On and Alona Tall in Season 7 Episode 4 Defending Your Life Please don't cut off DJ Qualls Garth Fitzgerald IV he is really awesome to me. I love this characters so much. Southern Comfort The episode begins in Kearney, Missouri a murder of an innocent man so Sam and Dean travels to Kearney,Missouri to investigate the murder and they run on Garth,they team up with him, who has taken over Bobby's job, as they hunt down a Specter that's possessing innocent people who have a grudge against someone. It is an old coin who ever get's possessed get's really angry and takes revenge on the one who gave him a harm. What i really loved in this episode was after Dean was possessed by that coin how angry was on Sam because Sam never looked for him and he let hit to rot in purgatory i used to admire,defend and love Sam for his mistakes saying he is a good guy,but now i don't anymore. Seriously that is not cool Sam! He changed in Season six so much.What i love in Season Eight mostly is when they show us time when Dean was whole year in purgatory with Castiel and Benny. Sam did not even look for him in Season 3 he did but no in Season 8. Castiel let him down and his own brother did that too and only Benny was true and blood brother to him more than Sam ever was. But still after everything they are brothers and they have all is each other left and Sam loves his brother.The best scene is at the end when Dean want's to shoot Sam because he felt betrayed and Garth defend him and stopped him. He punched him, Garth was awesome.God I love this show so much mostly i love are Season 1 - 3, 5 & 8 these Seasons i love. DJ Qualls you rock!!! I am giving this episode and a show 10/10.
