I'll let you in on a little secret....I nearly forgot to write my preview! I'm obviously not in the groove after hellatus! But I'm here now...so....
There was these Khan worms taking control of people and turning them into killers, which was a metaphor for what's happening to Dean. And Sam couldn't save the guy and he had to kill him, which was a metaphor for what Sam's terrified will happen with Dean. And it was all really tense and really, really, REALLY gross.
It's gonna get witchy again! Or nunny! Or both!
So we haven't seen Rowena since "The Executioner's Song", where she was trying to lay down plans with her boy Crowley to take down the top witch, and get her position and power back. Oddly, she doesn't appear in any of the promo photos. Obviously Ruth wasn't on set the day they were doing the shots! Anyhooo... Let's look at the synopsis.
SUPERNATURAL “Paint it Black”
ROWENA MAKES PLANS TO RECLAIM HER MAGIC
Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate a string of suicides committed by people with little in common other than the identical, grisly method of death – slow, self-administered disembowelment. All of the victims were members of a Catholic church and had recently given confession, leading the brothers to suspect the priest (guest star Stephen Daniel Curtis) is somehow involved. Meanwhile, when Crowley (Mark Sheppard) captures Olivette (guest star Teryl Rothery), the leader of the Grand Coven, Rowena (guest star Ruth Connell) pleads her case to be allowed to practice magic freely again. John Showalter directed this episode written by Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming (#1016).
DISEMBOWELMENT! Lovely. That's something to look forward to!
It sounds very much like we have two stories this week - the brothers with the churchy, disembowelment stuff and the Rowena and Crowley stuff. That's very much and Buckner/Ross-Leming thing I think, they seem to like to do multiple stories in their episodes.
Let's take a look at the promo
I feel like that nun might not be a nun! And Dean's right, she is kind of hot! I'll admit I'm fascinated by the concept of Dean in the confessional. I'd like to hear that confession! Awww maybe I wouldn't, it'd probably be sad. Or sexy, it might be sexy... I vote for sexy.
I love it so much when they bicker. I wonder if Dean sent nude selfies to any of those women he was talking to on the dating app. NOW LOOK AT HOW MY BRAIN WORKS! HOW DID I GET FROM HERE TO THERE?
I need to ruffle Sam's hair. A LOT. Geesh, he's looking like Mary Tyler Moore. SAY NO TO BOB. (but not Mark's Bobs...you know.)
They really are so cute when they bicker though aren't they? I just love that they are working together and getting on and being all bromenty. It sure beats the hell out of hating on each other!
Okay, obviously I don't have a lot to say! The promo makes this look quite monster of the weekish, but with Rowena and Crowley in the episode too, I have a feeling that it's going to be more than that and that there'll be some kind of tie in to their story, especially as next week the synopsis says that Dean faces off against Rowena...makes you think maybe something starts brewing this week to get us to that point!
Hey...do you think the nun is SISTER CHRISTIAN!? SEE WHAT I DID THERE!
Enjoy the episode! Pretty boys and a good ol' disembowelment! Woohoo! Party time!
