Supernatural Season 13 Episodes 1 - 9 Titles Revealed! Weeee! (Includes Spoilers for titles...obvs!)

Sooooooo are we all surviving the Hellatus? It's really not that long now until the new season kicks off! Woohooo! The show is already onto shooting episode 4, and with convention season in full flight, we're starting to hear bits and pieces of what to expect from the season!

One of the exciting things that happens before the season starts is we start to hear some episode titles. Well, this year we have the first 9 titles for season 13 released! Of course these can change, we've seen that happen, and the order can change, we've seen that happen too, but it's a start for all of us getting real hungry for the new season! And definitely something to chew on!

So here they are, let's look at them and see if we can work out what they're about! Come at me with your theories!

I'll add a couple of notes on the things we know, or I think, feel free to fill in the gaps and add your ideas!

Time to turn away now if you don't want to know what they are!

Episode 1: "Lost and Found" (Oct 12)
This will be the aftermath of the season finale, all they've lost, and the addition of Jack. We know Dean is going to struggle with the magnitude of his feelings of loss, and we also know he's not going to be all warm and fuzzy towards Jack. Whereas Sam wants to believe in Jack - because he sees so much of himself in that character, and because he also believes Jack is the answer to opening the portal to try and bring Mary back.

Episode 2: "The Rising Sun" (Oct 19)
Jack anyone?

Episode 3: "Patience" (Oct 26)
This is the episode that introduces the new character, Patience, who is Missouri Mosley's grand daughter and will be joining the Wayward Sisters/Daughters spinoff!

Episode 4: "The Big Empty"
I have a feeling we'll be seeing Cas in the Empty! Weeee! Which is what we've all been thinking let's face it!  But who is he going to be with?

Episode 5: "Advanced Thanatology"
I had to look up Thanatology! "The scientific study of death and the practices associated with it, including the study of the needs of the terminally ill and their families." 

Demented Daisy on Twitter came up with this little nugget!
Etymology of Thanatology: from the Greek god of death, Thanatos.

So this could be a monster of the week episode - certainly being episode 5 that episode often falls as a monster of the week bridge in the early season arc, or could Death be involved, being as this falls between what is probably Cas in the Empty and Cas Resurrected episodes! Is Death in the Empty with Cas? As Anna suggests in the comments?

Episode 6: "Tombstone"
This is the episode Misha said that Cas meets Jack. With that title, is this also the episode the Winchesters discover Cas has been resurrected?

Episode 7: "War of the Worlds"
I have a feeling we all know what this will be - will we see a clash between the two worlds?

Episode 8: "The Scorpion and the Frog"
This is the title of an Aesop's fable:  

A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion says, "Because if I do, I will die too."

The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown, but has just enough time to gasp "Why?" 

Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."

I know there are going to be discussions regarding nurture versus nature when it comes to Jack. Is that what this episode is going to be about? Will we find out which way Jack is going to go?

Episode 9: "The Bad Place"
Good chance this is the midseason finale, so expect something big and bad!

What do you think? Have you got ideas and theories, information to add? Have you heard anything on the wind? Let's get this season 13 thing going, and start talking! Can't wait to hear where your thoughts are taking you!

Leylin Vixen's Quick Draw SPN Roundup - All Along the Watchtower

All Along the Watchtower

OMG! It is finale time. I am excited and terrified as I should. You never know what will happen and if our heart will be ripped out and stomped on in Supernatural and it was, but at the same time it was stabbed, shot and blown to bits. I have no words. When I watched it I was speechless and bawling my eyes out. Don't get me wrong. I am truly excited about the AU world and what it can bring to us. BUT we did lose one character for good. After the finale Mark Sheppard said Crowley is gone for good and he is not coming back to the show. I am so sad that he is gone. But many episodes in this season felt that Crowley's story got closure and his "Bye boys" will be forever remembered. Also Castiel and Rowena bite the dust and Mary ended up in the AU world. So, was I fine after the finale? Hardly, ice cream and whiskey sounds about it for me.

So, here is the last Roundup for season 12!

Supernatural Think Tank - Anna's Thoughts on 12x23 "All Along the Watchtower"

I don't think we've ever had a two-hour episode of Supernatural before.  I mean, we've had two-parters of course, but never an actual episode that was two hours long.  This show is going on thirteen years old and we still have never had a two-hour episode.  For some reason I just find that odd.  Last week we had back to back episodes, which is something we've experienced before, I mean TNT runs marathons of Supernatural, although it was the first time we've had back to back episodes on "finale" day.  As much as I can watch Supernatural all day long, and actually have, I felt that a disservice was done by having a back to back with the last two episodes of the season.   I actually felt that a week in between would've better.  Let me explain.  First I will start by saying that I really liked this finale.  It was an exciting hour with an ending that has led to a myriad of possibilities heading into Season 13.   I'm very excited to see where the story will take us.  With that being said, I must confess that "Who We Are", in the way of emotional satisfaction, has provided me with so much joy and contentment,  it was so well done, dare I use the word...."perfect" that in all honesty, any episode that followed, no matter how good, could never compare.  I look at "Who We Are" as the J2 panels at conventions.   The finale was more along the lines of whoever follows J2.   Don't get me wrong,  whoever follows J2 could be awesome and enjoyable and even if you'd never seen them before, you would end up loving them.  Still no matter how awesome that person might be and how glad you were you got to see them, it's Jared and Jensen's panel that you remember the most.  It's they that filled your heart with such happiness.  It's seeing them that has made your life complete.  I know of what I speak, because I speak from personal experience. (I know it's not the same for everyone, but I think the majority understand where I'm coming from).   This is how I look at the last two episodes.

Leylin Vixen's Quick Draw SPN Roundup - Who We Are

Who We Are

This episode was so good that I was cheering many times during it. I am so happy that Jody and Alex survived the whole episode and Garth too. I am actually so relieved that they did not die. We even got a telling glimpse to Mary's mind space and how Dean feels about his mom. I actually gasped when he said he hated his mother but that he also loves her. And the reasons were not from his behalf but from Sam's. That is how Dean is and probably always will be. And in the end Sam leading the hunters and helping Mary over her doubts and that hug. But I should have known I was too happy because it is Supernatural after all. That though, I will leave to the finale.

It's penultimate time!

Review: Supernatural 12x22 "Who We Are" - by sweetondean

I’ve taken forever to write up the final two episodes of season 12. I don’t know why, I loved them both, a hell of a lot! Maybe it’s because I kinda just wanted to savour them without over thinking them, or maybe it’s because once they’re written up the hellatus has truely started! I’ve watched both episodes many times. They were on repeat for about 8 hours I reckon on that first day…just playing as I rewatched them, and chatted on twitter, and generally soaked everything up. They were both so good, full of emotion, and shocks, and times where I literally had to stand up because I just couldn't sit anymore! There was crying, there was yelling, there was random hand clapping, and there was a lot of dropped jaw gaping! I was left feeling absolutely shattered, in the best possible way. My heart had been pounding for the full 2 hours, from love, and fear, and horror, and sadness and just everything the show throws at me. It was a grand 2 hours of epic feels, I loved it!

Warning: Ahead be Winchester-centric gushing.

Have I ever mentioned to you how much I love Sam and Dean Winchester? I feel like it may have come up once or twice…
