Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) is perhaps the most beloved character in Supernatural history, sometimes even surpassing Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) with some fans. His interesting backstory, easy chemistry with other secondary characters, and deep familial bond with the Winchesters made him (and the actor who plays him) an integral part of the show, and many fans are still sore about the character’s controversial death back in season seven.

At least one episode in every season since, however, has managed to bring him back in one form or another, whether it be as a ghost, a figment of Dean’s imagination, or at last check, a spirit resting comfortably in Heaven with all the other Singers.

“Keep grinding. No matter how much it hurts. No matter how hard it gets. You got to keep grinding. And that’s how we’re gonna win. And we’re gonna win. We’re gonna save Cas, we’re gonna ice the devil, and we’re gonna shank the Darkness. And anyone who gets in our way? Well, God help them.”
—Dean Winchester, “Beyond The Mat”

Those are the words that pretty much summed up both tonight’s episode and season 11 of Supernatural thus far. (As we speak, they’re likely being printed onto Hot Topic shirts.) All kidding aside, the show continued its streak of successful, mostly stand-alone episodes with tonight’s above-average installment.

One of the best things about the CW’s Supernatural is that it works on two different levels: one as an extremely intricate multi-verse that contains many canonical rules and theories, and the other, as a horror-themed dramedy that rewards viewers with beloved secondary characters and inside jokes. In other words, it can be as complex or as simple as you want it to be.

The complicated plot of Amara/The Darkness (Emily Swallow) and its effect on the warring divisions of angels and demons bogged down the first half of season 11, but the series returned from the fall hiatus with several fanciful stand-alone episodes that have lightened the mood. Tonight’s episode managed to tie those two halves of Supernatural together, with a time-traveling adventure that was simple enough for a first-time viewer to enjoy, yet still managed to advance the plot.

Love hurts, love bleeds, especially on this week’s episode of Supernatural, and really on the show in general. Just about all of the show’s characters have experienced heartbreak and terrible relationships, beginning with the death of John Winchester’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) wife, Mary (Samantha Smith), and continuing on with Dean’s doomed relationship with Lisa (Cindy Sampson). It’s worth noting that only two characters in the series’ ever-expanding universe are currently happily married: hunter Garth (DJ Qualls) and his werewolf wife, Bess (Sara Smyth). So, it was easy to suspect that this Valentine’s Day-themed episode wouldn’t be the sort of thing you see in jewelry commercials.

Last year’s Super Bowl, with over 120 million viewers, was the most-watched event in the history of television.

But how did this year’s game, the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, fare? Read on to find out.

CBS’ coverage began at 1 PM CST with “Super Bowl Today”, their name for four hours of interviews, sportscaster analysis, trivia, and occasional on-field musical performances from artists as diverse as Sam Hunt and Seal.
