“Have you, like, never seen a horror movie? Two kids, dark road, creepy noise in the woods? We keep walking- and boom!”
—Hayden (Abby Ross) in “Ladies Drink Free”

This week’s episode of The CW’s Supernatural began in the same way that countless horror movies (and episodes of this show) have, with two teenagers taking a late night shortcut home through the darkened forest. One is a spoiled teenage girl, caught sneaking into a bar and texting with an unseen boyfriend, the other is her concerned brother (Jordan Burtchett), who ends up getting attacked and killed by a snarling, mask-wearing man. What would have been more surprising if it wasn’t for the episode’s title is that this strange creature only bites the girl before running away.

Naturally, the Winchesters visit her at the hospital in order to ask questions, but this time, they have a special guest.

Playing with fire: Crowley (Mark Sheppard) gets schooled by
his mother Rowena (Ruth Connell).

Dean: So where does that leave us?
Mary: Same as always. Family.
—“Family Feud”

Many Supernatural devotees will tell you that the show isn’t just about “saving people, hunting things”, but rather the power of family. From the first episode onward, the show has introduced and explored many different kinds of familial bonds, from the unconditional love between the two Winchester brothers to the deeply dysfunctional relationship between God (Rob Benedict) and the ultimate prodigal son, Lucifer.

Dean's (Jensen Ackles) mechanical bull prowess is one of the many things he forgets.

“I don’t know. We kinda sound like heroes to me… And our best friend is an angel—Whaaat?!”
—Dean in Regarding Dean

A common complaint among Supernatural’s fans is that the show’s actors don’t get the recognition that they deserve. After all, shouldn’t actors who can effortlessly go from action scenes to comedy, then handle serious drama, and believably deal with this show’s often ridiculous plotlines, be celebrated somewhere other than the Teen Choice Awards? One could say that the show is ignored because of mass competition or media bias against its network, but one could also argue that, in recent years, Supernatural hasn’t given its actors enough material to really show off their talent.

Alicia Witt plays Lily Sunder in Supernatural

“Patience is a talent. You’d be amazed what a person can do with a little bit of purpose and an abundance of time.”
—Lily (Alicia Witt) in Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets

It’s safe to say that about half of Supernatural‘s fans weren’t looking forward to this episode. Many viewers, for one reason or another, dislike Castiel (Misha Collins) and don’t particularly care for angel-based storylines, believing that they take too much screentime away from the Winchester brothers and their mission of “saving people, hunting things”.

The "Lucifer-in-Chief" Jefferson Rooney (David Chisum)

“Lucifer’s not content with slutting it from one random vessel to the next. He’s moving on to blue chips, celebrities, captains of industry. He just got a lot more dangerous.” - Crowley

This week’s episode of Supernatural started out promising, with the creepy visual of Lucifer possessing an Archbishop (Mark Brandon), complete with red, glowing eyes and crucifixes turning upside down as he walks past them. But, after slaughtering a church full of priests trying to exorcise him, he moves on to a more predictable vessel: the President of the United States.

It’s a little refreshing that the show didn’t try to make any big political statement by making their POTUS a caricature of any current political figure. President Jefferson Rooney (David Chisum) is described as a deeply religious widower who’s in a secret relationship with one of his staffers, but his political party or views are never mentioned.
