Supernatural - Dealing with the Stripped-Down Reality & Up-coming Episode Synopsis [Contains Spoilers]

After what's been a fantastic season of Supernatural, we're on the homestretch. Season seven has been heavily focusing on the Winchesters surviving on a stripped-down reality, not only they lost two of the most loved and trusted friends, Bobby and Castiel, the Winchesters also have to deal with the Leviathans who are running wild like real life politicians.

I recall Jensen's comment in an interview he did earlier, which really sums up season seven perfectly.
"Season seven is Supernatural stripped down. It's the acoustic [version]!...They've taken a lot of the tools of our trade that we've come to rely on over the years, and they've kind of stripped those away from us, so we're kind of having to get back to the basics. We're relying on each other; we're relying on our smarts, our wits just to make it through, and it's cool. I like it. It's definitely reminiscent of the first season, which was when we fell in love with the show and a lot of the people watching fell in love with it." -- Jensen Ackles, Examiner.com, Los Angeles TV Insider
I personally find it hard to come up with any theories for this season. I usually have a theory or two but I got nothing this time. It's not a bad thing, afterall, it hurt my brain to think about stuff like "what happened to Samuel Colt after he disappeared?" The show has gone back to basic with the good old fashion "saving people hunting things family business". But the show is much more mature now in comparison to earlier seasons. We are seeing more emotional struggles of the main characters in dealing with self-doubt, losses, trust and belief. Stuff like this only happens when you get older, so this approach is only fitting as the show matures. This is one of the things I admire the show the most, it evolves on so many different levels, there is just so much to learn from the story, the production and the writers.
While we wait for the all new Supernatural episode which airs on April 20, here are the up-coming synopsis to keep us sane or insane..

7.20 The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo

FELICIA DAY (THE GUILD, EUREKA) GUEST STARS — Dick Roman (James Patrick Stuart) acquires Frank’s hard drive that contains sensitive information about the Winchesters and gives it to an unsuspecting brilliant hacker named Charlie (guest star Day) telling her she has 48 hours to crack the firewall or she is fired. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are tipped off that Dick has the hard drive and race to get to Charlie before she breaks the code. Meanwhile, Bobby (Jim Beaver) tries to help the brothers, but his rage towards Dick for killing him starts to get in the way. John MacCarthy directed the episode written by Robbie Thompson.

7.21 Reading Is Fundamental

Ben Edlund is the writer and director of this episode. Spoiler..brace yourself for the Asian prophet -- Mike Chang (No, not really, you wish!)

7.22 There Will Be Blood

Director Guy Bee tweeted a set photo. Oh BABY!!

7.23 Survival of the Fittest

The episode title for 7.23 keeps changing, watch this space I guess. But one thing for sure, Robert Singer is the director and I believe Sera penned this episode.

We still don't have any news for season eight.. Watch this space! Is it just me or do you also want Carver Edlund to collaborate on an episode in season eight?
