In last night's episode of Supernatural, I thought this is just going to be more of the same: either a monster of the week or some lame episode where the prophet translates some gobbledygook, and it ends up having some catastrophic consequence that really isn't all that catastrophic since it can be solved in a single episode.

I like where this plotline is going, and it seems odd that they are introducing it so late in the 8th season. I mean how long can the CW keep milking this series along? I guess it's one of their more popular shows so perhaps ten seasons just like Smallville? I bet Jensen Ackles had no idea that Supernatural would occupy such a huge portion of his acting career.
I love analyzing the writing of this show. I think that most of us that write in the paranormal genre start with characters just like Sam and Dean and then struggle to figure out what Sam and Dean should do. We create bad guys and then create maybe an object or a person or a thing that everyone wants. If the wrong group gets it, then all hell breaks loose (and thus a source of tension for the story). And despite being used over and over again, it is still intriguing if done right. The question that tugs at my mind is this: Can Supernatural reinvent itself using this technique? My initial reaction is yes. I guess I'll have to keep watching to see.
I have to admit that I am attached to Sam and Dean, so it's what keeps bringing me back to the show.
In 500 words or less (fact or fiction) you tell the reader why the couple broke up and why they feel compelled to get back together. You must also indicate whether you are posting in the fact or fiction category. I'm going to write a funny post...like maybe why Mike and Ike (the candies) got back together after their breakup.
If you have the time, please stop by Joy's blog today as she's one of the last to host me in my book tour which is ending soon. Again, her blog can be found HERE.
Have a great Thursday. I hope you don't catch a cold, because I caught one and my head is so stuffed that my eyes water.
