Supernatural ‘Don’t Call Me Shurley’ Episode Review!

Yes, I’ve been updating way too much these days. BUT THIS EPISODE DESERVES A POST FOR THE REST OF IT’S LIFE!

I’m not even kidding when I say Supernatural’s Season 11 Episode 20 is the best episode the show has produced in years. In all honesty, when this season had started off, and I had reviewed the season premiere:(Go read it!), I had major doubts about the quality of this season. But, ‘Don’t Call Me Shurley’ puts those doubts straight out of your head 15 minutes into the episode!

SPOILERS! MAJOR, MAJOR SPOILERS!

The greatest surprise of the episode wasn’t that lovable writer Chuck revealed himself as God, honestly that had been a fan theory since Season 5’s Swan Song finale, and almost had been even admitted to by the writers. The greatest part about this episode was the fact that Chuck(GOD) and Metatron(former Angel and God’s best friend by far) bonded in such a superb way that you didn’t even realize you needed. The story very conveniently put Sam and Dean Winchester into the background for a while, and it was beautiful. God took centre stage with his funny, tragic and complex self and Rob Benedict delivered in all ways possible. Curtis Armstrong has Metatron redeemed himself fully and delivered by far the strongest monologue of any season ever where he finally managed to convince God to stop being grumpy and help his creation, humanity.

Towards the end of the episode where Metatron was convinced that his words did not have the desired affect on God, and all God was bothered about was his Autobiography that he wanted to write with the help of Metatron, the greatest and happiest part of the episode comes along: Chuck Shurley; God, gets up on stage, picks a guitar and Rob Benedict delivers a stellar performance of the song ‘Fare Thee Well’ and the episode finally takes a turn for good when Sam returns from near death, the popular Samulet is back in all it’s glory, and every single person who died in the episode comes back to life! Three Cheers for God! It’s a brilliant, brilliant episode, one that will be spoken about in years to come as the writers, directors, producers and the actors do a stellar job of providing the perfect antidote that this season of Supernatural needed.

I have never waited for any episode as I had waited for this one and the way it delivered, I was in legit happy tears at the end! And this is how this gem of an episode ended:

Kudos to Supernatural for providing the precise thrust we all needed! Desperately waiting for the next episode now!

Episode Rating: 10000/10, I cannot even describe my feelings!

Supernatural Season 11 Premiere

Supernatural’s Season 11 premiered a few days ago and obviously I was very, very excited. The episode started right where Season 10 left off: Dean free off the Mark, The Darkness released into the world, and total chaos everywhere.

The episode started off as everyone expected it to. Neither Sam nor Dean knew what was going on, Cass, after being juiced on Rowena’s witchcraft goes berserk on Crowley and kills him. Or does he, really?

As Sam and Dean find out the destruction they’ve let lose onto the world because of releasing The Darkness, they make new allies and are forced to make rough decisions. By the end of the episode, they end up getting separated but not before Dean gets a tearful call from Cass saying goodbye (that part hurt the most).

Sadly, the episode leaves more questions than it gives answers and out of all the season premieres’s I’ve seen, the Season 11 premiere just leaves you confused and angry because it clearly does not answer the questions left by the previous season.
