I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and got all the pressies that were on your wishlist. Good times! We have a few days before the arrival of 2013. I have a few features to wrap up 2012. Watch this space!
And now... the episode description of Supernatural episode 8.10 Torn and Frayed:
CASTIEL MUST SAVE A FELLOW ANGEL — Naomi (guest star Amanda Tapping) tells Castiel (Misha Collins) that Crowley (guest star Mark Sheppard) is holding an angel captive and Castiel must rescue him before Crowley finds out their secrets. Castiel turns to Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help. Meanwhile, Sam (Jared Padalecki) meets with Amelia (guest star Liane Balaban) who asks him to make a choice: stay with her or leave and never contact her again. Robert Singer directed the episode written by Jenny Klein. Source: KSite
I would have liked to see we return in the new year with Sam and Amelia ALREADY sorted out their relationship. Sam had already left Amelia and he saw her with Don in the living room. Why is the Sam and Amelie storyarc going in circle like a typical chic flick? Because it IS a chic flick! This is the only thing I am not emotionally investing in. Moreover, this storyarc gets very out of place in the midst of 'saving people, hunting things, protecting the prophet'. However, this could sort of explain Sam's behaviour and state of mind -- he is distracted, he is at a crossroad (not the demon related crossroad), and he gets grumpy more easily than before. This storyarc needs to end!
But on the very positive side, we are back with the season's mythology. We are back with Naomi, Cas, and Crowley. What could Crowley be possibly find out from this angel who's been held captive? When will Naomi meet the Winchesters?
I cannot wait!!! January 16, please come now!
