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.
THE CW’S SUPERNATURAL
Synopsis: BENNY CALLS DEAN FOR HELP — After Benny gets brutally beat up by some vampires, he calls Dean for help. Dean abruptly packs up and tells a confused Sam that he’s taking a “personal day.” Benny confesses that he’s going after his Maker (guest star Patrick Stafford) so Dean offers to help, flashing back on the many times Benny helped him and Castiel in Purgatory. Meanwhile, Sam uses his solo time to reflect on the life he left behind with Amelia (guest star Liane Balaban). However, when things go bad for Dean and Benny, Dean calls Sam for help, which makes everything very complicated. Guy Bee directed the episode written by Ben Edlund.

Six witches to be exact (both males and females), whose stories and backgrounds will be revealed as the season progresses. Now on to the review, stop here is you don’t want to be spoiled.

Our week ends with a plate full of other worldly goodness. No really, we mean it. We’ve got ghosts, fairy tales, parallel universes, angels gone crazy, and so much more to finish off the week.
