I’m sure that many fans will agree with me in saying that last night’s offering of Supernatural, “Don’t Call Me Shurley,” was not only something that we have waited years to see, but it also may have been the finest episode of this season (so far). Seeing Rob Benedict return as Chuck Shurley/God in an outing that spent a great deal of time examining his character was something that I was not sure I would ever see. And the fact that Metatron of all people inspired him to get back in the game made for quite an emotional viewing experience.
Despite all that transpired last night, it looks as though next week’s episode, titled “All in the Family,” may surpass it, as we’ll now get to see Chuck have a long overdue conversation with Sam and Dean Winchester. Something tells me that if these three fellas put their heads together they have a significant chance of stopping Amara’s bid to wipe out all that exists. Will the returning Samulet also play a role? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Speaking of Amara, it seems that Sam and Dean intend to make a play to rescue Lucifer from her. As long as they have a breath in their bodies, they won’t give up on their longtime friend Castiel in hopes that he will be able to eject Lucifer from his vessel. You never know what will happen this late in the season, but we can only hope that our favorite angel survives, for it’s hard to imagine the show without him.
For more details on what to expect, check out the official synopsis below:
Amara (guest star Emily Swallow) shows Dean (Jensen Ackles) how she’s torturing Lucifer (Misha Collins).
