Episode 11×04 AKA “The One About Baby”

For those of you that noticed that I did not post a SPN review for 11×03, this was intentional. I do not support the work of the SPN writers who are responsible for “Dark Dynasty“, and also wrote last week’s episode. In a culture where media is ruled over by ratings, I refuse to give them publicity. Give Charlie the tribute she deserved, and I’ll reconsider.

So, on to “Baby”, written by Robbie Thompson, a precious sunbeam in my world.  Warning there be spoilers ahead.

Episode 11×02 AKA “The One with the Dark Baby”

Well, the hellatus is over and Darkness is unleashed on the Earth. Dean has become a guardian to Teh Dark Baby; Sammy is infected by the rage monster virus, and Castiel has been cursed by Rowena. I’m guessing the Winchesters won’t be getting sunshine and puppies anytime soon…Warning there be spoilers ahead.

Episode 11×01 AKA “The One with Teh Darkness”

Well, the hellatus is over and Darkness is upon us. Who knows what this season will bring for us? I’m guessing the Winchesters won’t be getting sunshine and puppies…Warning there be spoilers ahead.

Synopsis

The season lights up immediately where season 10 ended–the Darkness is coming and the Impala’s stuck in a ditch. Not exactly an ideal situation, boys. While our last look of season 10 showed the boys together in the Impala, Sam wakes up alone in the passenger seat. Dean is gone, and Sam finds him a mile away, face-down in the dirt (really, can we talk about how Sam must have a tracking device on Dean to find him so easily?)

Episode 10×23 or “The One With the Darkness”

So far this season: Dean’s been cured from demonism; Crowley was his BFF; Cas has his Grace back; and Sam has done his best to reign in Dean’s homicidal tendencies. Claire Novak has also reappeared and is at the Wayward Daughters Hunting Academy (aka Sheriff Jody’s house). Cain has confirmed that there is no cure for the Mark, but Crowley’s mother, Rowena, says it’s a curse, and like any other curse it can be broken. In pursuit of a spell to break the curse, Charlie sacrificed her life to the supernatural Corleone family: the Stynes.  Spoilers ahead.

My dearest Collectors, I had written you a 1000 word review of magnificence and great depth and then…

Sometimes I hate the internet.

But really, the most important information about Robbie Thompson’s “Angel Heart” can be gleaned from this very humorous yet apropos tweet from the Overlord Misha Collins.

Okay, so yes, this is an adorable and comic edit of an adorable BTS photo, but actually it’s so much more. Normally, this is the part where I’d wax eloquent on the plot’s synopsis, but since Metatron killed my words (really, my computer’s name is Metatron), let’s talk about the most important theme in episode 10×20: family.
