A significant tonal change in the show. Improvements all around.
8 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Supernatural has had it's fair share of dark and violent moments, but this season may be the darkest one yet.

Supernatural has had a history of disappointing premiere episodes, but this wasn't the case this time my friends.

First thing to be noted is that the execution of our new evil was done much differently than we've been accustomed to seeing (and MUCH better). In the past, we'd get glimpses of information about our enemy that at times were openly provided. This time is a little different. Very little information regarding the darkness was given, and very little screen time as well. In a way, the show kinda stopped "spoon-feeding" us with this one. And the actress who portrayed the evil gave the character such a bone-chilling tone which made for quite impressive casting on their end. It's a gloomy, mysterious evil that we haven't been introduced to so well since their debut of Lucifer's character.

I'm satisfied to see that serious moments are now more effective whether or not dean still manages to crack a one-liner.

Ultimately that is the most significant improvement. The soundtrack seemed improved, the acting was much more subtle and serious (less "soap-opera" acting if that makes sense), there were some moments a little more disturbing than the show is used to, etc. You'll have to watch it for yourself.

All in all, great episode! Can't wait to see what's in store for us.
