It is getting Back in track.
7 December 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Supernatural faced a very rough patch in the past two seasons. Season Six and Seven where pretty much off the track. This is generally the case when a show drags after finishing its main story. I was quite disappointed for the last two seasons and it seemed that the show lost its tone but kept on dragging just because it had to. This season things are different mostly because the plot is not been unfolded at the beginning. Who is Benny? What is his motives? Who is Amelia? will he be a part of the storyline? What will Cass do ? all these questions kept clouding this season and till now they are pulling it up well. This episode mainly catches up with the time that was spent in the year in between when dean was in purgatory and Sam was well... We see the two characters being back Benny as well as Amelia. Dead bodies are found in Louisiana where Benny is now settled with his life working in a café. Bodies started showing up and the Dean and Sam are the hunters who take the case. Dean though trusting Benny is now faced with a tough choice. What I liked most about the episode was its tone it feels like watching Season 4 or 5. The dark tone is what went missing the entire time. Also Sam and Dean it seems has their relationship strained more thane ever. And finally the episode ends leaving a lot of questions in your mind? All this makes this episode one hell of a ride. Classic Supernatural fans would be happy that they finally get to see what they have been wanting to.
