Supernatural Season 7 - The Brothers, The Symmetry & The Crowley

The CW has released an updated description of the season seven premier of Supernatural... Ouch!

Dean: "We are so screwed".. Sam: "Understatement!"
Wow... I reiterate, seasons seven will be intense from the get-go. So many storylines are left wide-open. The brotherly love is back. Despite the whole '...a secret that threatens to tear them apart' thing, I don't think this is all true. I mean, seriously, NOTHING will make Dean and Sam stop caring for each other. Especially with Dean, I was revisiting some of the earlier episodes, this guy doesn't give up on his brother, he may have a thing or two to say about John or when Sam got friendly with the demon in season four, Dean never stop loving his brother. Dean will continue to deal with his brother's pain and everything else. Dean's responsibility doesn't stop with Sam, he also has the new God Cas to deal with while keeping the world safe from evil. Sam's current state of mind is one of the key themes to watch. Unlike Dean, Sam wasn't the torturer, he was the object in Michael & Lucifer's play day. What I would really love to see is Sam remembering the stuff that Michael and Lucifer talked about in their cage. Surely the angels will not settle for hell and surely getting out of hell does cross their mind. Right?

The show will once again bring the symmetry back -- life and death. I need my God/ Death fix and I cannot wait how this will play out. Castiel's new role as the new God is going to be an on-going theme in season seven, it's interesting to note Cas is yet to realise the magnitude of his new form, we will definitely continue to see his journey in that regard. Death will continue to play a key role in season seven. Don't forget the conversation between Dean and Death in Appointment in Samarra, Death told Dean to keep digging about souls. We haven't seen that bit wrapped up, and I hope to see this developing further. Also when Death claimed he is capable of reaping God in season five, I think this idea will surface again and I cannot wait to see how this turns out. I think anytime you have a not-so-regular character appear in the season premier, that HAS to be the shape of things to come.

Last but not least, I still think there are things the writers aren't tell us about Crowley, Mark Sheppard highlighted an important point, we have never seen Crowley's eyes turn black or red or yellow like other demons. Now that he 'lost' to Cas in the battle of the souls from Purgatory, what will be his next move? Crowley is like a smart business man, he doesn't give up and he will continue to make business proposition and find the right business partner, so to speak, to get what he wants. What I like about Crowley is that he is not stupid and he isn't like other demons, he is a business man, he knows how to play games. That's what makes him interesting.

Here is the updated synopsis:

"Now, despite Sam and Dean's efforts to stop him, Castiel has succeeded in his plan. His power is God-like, and Sam and Dean have no idea how to stop him. But even Castiel doesn't truly understand the magnitude of what's inside him -- or how dangerous he really is.

Season seven finds Dean and Sam reeling from the loss of their friend. Sam's violent memories of Hell threaten to overtake him, threatening not just his life, but his brother's as well. Meanwhile, Dean struggles under the weight of a secret that threatens to tear them apart. And even as the brothers traverse the backroads of America, hunting things that go bump in the night, something is coming for them. They are about to face an enemy more canny and adaptable than any they've ever fought. As the landscape around them becomes increasingly treacherous, the tools they've come to rely upon will be stripped away. Our heroes, like so many outlaws before them, will find themselves utterly outmatched and outgunned, with no one to rely on but each other."

Don't miss the season premier on Friday 23 September on the CW.


  1. I like the whole Death reaping God idea. It was Dean he told about that and I I bet that's what Dean's motivation is to call on Death and I reckon Death is going to be mighty pissed. He doesn't like getting pushed around. He is a powerful entity. This is going to annoy him no end! I'm really looking forward to more brother time. I want them to find their way back to each other. I'm worried about this secret thing but I hope it's just a beat up. Sammy is one tough cookie, he'll soldier on through this latest torment. I also would love to hear about what happened in Hell and whether Sam has any relevant and helpful memories of Lucifer and Michael. I'm looking forward to Dean being Dean and that big brother thing. I love it when he protects Sam, it's one of the things I love about him the most. That fact that no matter what, through thick and thin, through mistrust and betrayal he will never ever give up on Sam. I also can't wait to see how the Cas thing plays out and how long it will play out. Whether it will indeed be a presence in the season or whether we get rid of the 'God' storyline early in the piece. Who will be the big bad and why can't the boys use they usual tools and wealth of knowledge. I'm really loving this idea and that the brothers will have to lean on each other to make it through. As for Crowley, well who knows. That Mark Sheppard is a massive tease! I read him talking about that again this week. Yes it's true we've never seen the demon eyes in any form on Crowley, but what is he then? Surely he wouldn't fool Cas and Cas believes him to be a demon. Whatever the story with Crowley, Cas and Death all I know is I can't wait for season 7 and my boy to be back...I've missed them so.
    Thanks for the thoughts Tiny, you know how I love to ponder this show!
