by Anne W. Brennan

Two brothers who hunt the things that go bump in the night, contend with Heaven and Hell, and save the world.  And still bicker like brothers – a lot.

A genius billionaire playboy philanthropist who saves himself from death every second of the day with an implant in his chest, and who uses that genius to bring peace to the world.  With a little attitude.

Teenagers who, having been turned into monsters, still try to maintain their humanity and innocence in the face of thousands of years of war and blood.  And have great parties every week.

KEATON SIMONS

“BEAUTIFUL PAIN”

Keaton Simons is an artist that injects a new feel into rock music. He adds certain elements of groove and soul that gives you some real feel good music. The best part (that musicians can especially relate too) is that he not only creates funky rythms that could go on for miles, but he can hold his own when it comes to soloing on guitar. I could see him performing with the likes of John Mayer, Eric Clapton, and maybe even in a different lifetime Stevie Ray Vaughan. Simons brings a high energy into soulful music that cannot be missed. ~ Nicholas Kelley

Or, In Which Joe Has a Very Bad Day, Part II

Havenport is no haven for anyone, nor is it the port in the storm that Joe had imagined.  While “The Curse” saw things starting to unravel for Joe, they’re now coming apart like someone’s pulled a thread on a ratty sweater and it’s quickly turning into a ball of nasty yarn.

Quick sidenote: working for lawyers as I do, I gleefully enjoyed the Ziegevolk lawyer being so glib and (considering his toad sweat) literally rather slimy.  Is a stereotype a stereotype if it’s true?  I simply nodded and pointed at the TV, muttering, “That looks familiar.”

Last week, I asked the Supernatural Gods to give us a one-two punch, and they delivered in this episode.  I found this a rich and powerful hour of raw emotion – fear, love, regret, and bittersweet joy.  I’m going to go through the episode, then do some picking apart.  Please bear with me.
