"Torn and Frayed" Pretty Much A Waste Of Time
22 January 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Judging from this episode, the rumor is true that season eight of the "Supernatural" will be the series' last. Most of this episode, "Torn and Frayed," is occupied with showing an angel being tortured by Crowley's flunkey. No need for much dialog or spending time with camera setups when you are filming someone strapped in a chair mumbling Nokian. The rest of the story consists of brief scenes showing Sam's former girlfriend and Dean's bromance pal from purgatory. Castiel is there too, to help end this time filler episode. Bad as the Leviathan story arc in season seven was, at least there the producers tried to create some interest in the characters. With "Torn and Frayed," Supernatural hits rock bottom. To think that some years back, this series had a great episode like "Nightshifter," with suspense, mystery and action in a coherently written format. Even I could write a better episode than this one, an episode which seems to have been written by a committee of writers on drugs.
