Supernatural: Time Is On My Side

by Brett Love, posted May 9th 2008 8:29AM

Jensen Ackles and Lauren Cohan - Supernatural
(S03E15) The penultimate episode of season three went a long ways toward answering many of our questions. The season long question of whether or not Dean can get out of his deal remains up in the air, but we now know what has to be done to save him. All of those little bits were enough to sell this episode, but just for kicks and giggles, the fine folks over at Supernatural tossed in some answers about the controversial Bela. And even that wasn't enough. The monster of the week managed to tie both of those stories together, and give a shout out to John. There was a lot going on, and we'll get to it all, after the jump.

Supernatural: Dream A Little Dream Of Me

Jim Beaver - Supernatural
(S03E10) Ya know, it's times like this when I miss the old TV Squad episode rating system, because here is one that I could have given the coveted 7 out of 7 to. The Supernatural team delivered on all counts this week. There was the usual humor, with some terrific one liners (Brad Pitt?), a good bit of the creepy, a big step for Dean's ongoing story, all the Bobby you could ask for, and one more reason to be really frickin' annoyed with Bela. Really, what more could you want out of your Thursday night? We don't need no stinkin' ghostbusters with jacked up vacuum cleaners.

Supernatural: Fresh Blood

Sterling K Brown and Katie Chapman - Supernatural
(S03E07) Well now, guess who's back? This was an episode that many Supernatural fans had been waiting a good ten months for. Technically, Gordon Walker returned a few weeks ago in "Bad Day At Black Rock". But that was just a little taste, a hint at what was to come. This was the payoff, and it was well worth the wait. On the off chance that Gordon's obsessed return wasn't enough, they also brought along Buffy vet Mercedes McNab, and the boys made a little more progress in their ongoing, car based, relationship therapy.

Supernatural: Red Sky at Morning

Jensen Ackles and Lauren Cohan - Supernatural
(S03E06) "How do you sleep at night?"

"On silk sheets, rolling naked in money."

Week six picks up right where we left off, with Sam having dispatched the crossroads demon in his attempt to get Dean out of the deal, and Dean figuring the whole thing out. It also marked the return of the feisty new hunter/artifact dealer Bela. Together the three of them set out on another adventure that once again got the balance of the mystery, the creepy, and the comedy just right.
