Forced mother and son tattoos, more magic bones, and a cheesy crime-drama score help this bad ass show succeed wildly. Tonight’s episode revolved around the addition of Kevin’s mother to the mix and a terrible underworld auction. You can find anything at these auctions everything from Thor’s hammer or even God’s tablet. Meeting Kevin’s mom is more than meets the eye; pretty awesome for some rando Asian mom. Pay attention later when Crowley suggests Kevin’s Dad might be from darker roots.
Lurking in the dark undertones of flashbacks, we see Dean, Benny, and Cas slugging it out in Purgatory. Dean presses on our favorite angel and finally realizes why Cas left him. I won’t spell it out for you, but this angel is unpopular in this Godforsaken place. Crowley shows up at the tablet auction and loses…again. Is this guy ever going to really end up on top? We learn some people are wary of Benny and even see how Dean’s Purgatory time is turning him more into a merciless hunter. Next week’s previews suggest that Sam wants his old life of stability back, so enter this season’s Winchester boys feud.
So, where are we now? The Winchesters and Kevin barrel down on the tablet, Crowley has his own plans, Benny is a creeper, and Cas has sea legs. Two episodes in and I’m already enjoying the eighth season immensely. Like OGR said earlier this week “I’ll keep watching it until there’s no more left to watch.”
