This is it. The last episode of 2010. No more ‘Supernatural’ until 2011. Usually the midseason finale was always the 10th episode but the CW is doing things differently this season. Every CW show goes into winter hiatus after episode 11. At the moment there are rumors that most will return around Jan 24th – 28th. It makes sense. We get an extra episode in the old year, so we have to wait a week longer until the shows return. There is also the problem with ‘American Idol’ which moved to Wednesday and Thursday and the question if the CW will make any adjustments in their schedule. E.g. Moving ‘The Vampire dairies’ to Tuesday or Thursday 9 pm. I doubt that the situation will cause any changes for ‘Supernatural’. It’s on Friday now and it will stay there until the rest of the season.
After last week, Sam and Dean are on their own again. I don’t know how many episodes ended with them breaking up. These guys seriously need some marriage…I mean brother-relationship counseling. Dean is still on soul-saving mission and Sam starts taking precautions to prevent his mutilated soul from returning home. The big question of the episode is will Sam get his soul back? And if yes, will it be a reason to celebrate or call 9-1-1? And of course, will Death be welcomed back with the amazing ‘O death’ by Jen Titus?
No, webclip this week but you can watch this short video of the ‘Supernatural’ cast talking about their recent TV guide poll win which earned the show its first TV guide magazine cover.
Supernatural – The Cover of TV Guide – Jensen, Jared, Misha and Jim say thanks!
The CW’s official description of episode 6.11 “Appointment in Samarra”
Dean seeks out Death to help get Sam’s soul back. Death tells Dean he will help Sam if Dean will agree to act as Death for 24 hours. Meanwhile, Sam decides he doesn’t want his soul back and asks Balthazar for a protective spell to keep his soul out of his body. Balthazar tells Sam he needs the blood of his father for the spell to work and since John Winchester is dead, Sam decides Bobby is the next best thing. Mike Rohl directed the episode written by Sera Gamble & Robert Singer.
