It is bad Supernatural, but it was a pretty good attempt at a monster show. I would not have minded a season to see if it could have worked
21 September 2020 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

This is ultimately a failed experiment and I generally ignore it in continuity of the Winchester story. The central concept of a gangster saga between families of monsters is itself compelling, as evidence that several shows like this have come and gone. I think the bones of a such a series are present and the episode does enough to make me interested in checking out a few additional episodes. Have I come across this as isolated from 8 years of Winchester history I would have more or less liked it. Yeah it is a bit silly and yeah the writing is predictable. But the cast they got had potential and I like the vibe the tone the script was trying to set.

But no it is not *Supernatural.* A gang war over the control of a major US city is too central to society to fit in with the drifter, on the road vibe that the show has had over the years. It also raises a whole host of logical questions-why haven't hunters heard of these crime families? The Winchesters are barely involved in this episode-nothing critical in their story happens here-so at least it is easy to cut out of the series. The writer entirely ignored this moving forward for a reason.
