Secret-keeping and deal-making have been frequent themes for Dean and Sam since the show’s early seasons. But nothing quite compares to when the siblings are on the same side, fighting against a common threat. After all, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki’s chemistry is a big part of the show’s winning formula, so it helps if the Winchesters are actually getting along. Luckily, it sounds like the new season will deliver on that front.
A VISION FROM HEAVEN
Quick: describe Castiel’s arc in Season 10 in one sentence! Not so easy, is it? Since he lost his Heavenly grace (and then sorta got it back), the show has struggled to find a purpose for the angel. Cas’ connection to “daughter” Claire was intriguing, but it’s time to give him a clear story that ties into the mytharc. Given that next season’s Big Bad is the pre-biblical The Darkness, we’re off to a promising start.
THE KING OF HELL REBORN
After letting his witchy mom get the better of him, hopefully, Crowley survives Castiel’s attack and takes his anger out on the right person: Mommy Dearest. Show us why the King of Hell ought to be feared!
PAPA WINCHESTER’S COMEBACK
It’s time. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is interested, the show seems to have ramped up mentions of John in the past couple of seasons, and it’s too meaty of a return to save for a series-finale cameo. Speaking of the dearly departed…
While the chatter has quieted down, there’s no doubt in our minds that The CW would love to get an offshoot on the air, especially considering Supernatural is heading into Season 11. But instead of giving us a cast of newbies again, as the last planted pilot did, why not invest in some characters that viewers already know and love —with a young John Winchester story or a female hunters series about Krissy and Claire?
Now that the show has finally found the perfect actor (Dylan Everett) to play young Dean, can Colin Ford please return (as young Sammy) for a special flashback installment?
GET MORE META
Because the 200th episode was a beautiful love letter to the fans. And the series excels when it breaks the fourth wall (see: “The French Mistake” or “Changing Channels”).
Yes, Dean’s no longer a demon, singing his heart out, but what’s stopping him and Sam from hitting a dive bar and having some fun? Oh yeah, just the end of the world. Again. Hey, we have just the karaoke song…
