Did You Know?


When Bobby compliments Dean on his repair work on the Impala, Dean replies "I should do this professionally." Back in Season 2 when Dean was living out a wish in the episode "What Is and What Should Never Be," a still-alive Mary tells Dean he's supposed to be at his job at the garage, so in Dean's dream life he actually was working on cars professionally.

Bobby indicates that fulgurites are very rare, and created by lightning hitting sand and crystallizes into a perfect shape of its self. While the method of a fulgurite's creation is accurate, they are not necessarily rare, as one can make 'homemade' versions, using a lightning rod or rebar on a stormy night. Bobby also indicates that they need a large one. The length of the fulgurite used in the summoning spell was about 12 inches or so, but in reality, some of the largest that have been on display measured 13 to 16 feet long. See more »


Castiel: Hello, Crowley. You look stressed.

Gets season off to a good start
16 April 2020 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

Season 6 never really had a strong sense of a central narrative and the biggest difference with season 7 is the much better defined central story. The Leviathans are the best big bads in the show's run but they function much better than the nebulous Mother of All. Add in Halucifer more Sam's personal story and this is a much better foundation to build on.

The Death scene onto itself is one of the best scenes in the show's run and I really just like the feel of the dynamic between Death and Dean.
