Season 10×08 or “You Betcha”
I’m gonna be honest with you, SPN Family, I didn’t really want to watch this week’s episode. I did so begrudgingly at the behest of my flatmate, and *gasp* I took no notes. For the first time ever, I dreaded an episode of Supernatural, and it wasn’t because of the potential feels, but the writing. In the interest of moving forward and addressing new things, please see my previous
rants reviews of episodes done by this particular writer for the Episode Which Shall Not Be Named and “#Thinman” for my exact sentiments on the writing style and capabilities of said writer. I have nothing new to add that I didn’t say in my review of #Thinman.
Instead, let me share with you 3 things that held my attention more fully than “Hibbing 9-1-1.”

I can’t f**king look away from this sh*t, which is more than I can say for the latest episode of Supernatural.
Kim Rhodes’ Twitter Account
No, but, really, Kim Rhodes is the most amusing person on Twitter (sorry, Misha).
This woman is gold.
The Midseason Finale Promo
When I woke up Wednesday morning to a Twitter timeline full of Supernatural, 98% of it was about the promo for next week’s episode. In 30 seconds I felt chills, I felt scared, and I felt devastated. There’s a death pact between Dean and Cas (ouch, those were my feels), there’s the Mark of Cain, and there’s Dean, covered in blood.
Can you hear that? That’s the sound of my internal screaming.
Did I hate everything about this episode? No, I really didn’t hate it at all. You can blame this dithering media-centric review on the fact that it’s end of term, I’m exhausted, and after this week’s The Walking Dead and Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural just had a lot to live up to. So, let’s talk about Sheriff Jody Mills and her new pal, Donna.
Prepare your feels, SPN Family, next week is a guaranteed rollercoaster of emotions.
