Supernatural Review: "...And Then There Were None"

by at . Comments

So, the Mother of All has a name: Eve.

With a name like that, someone named Adam has to be not far behind. Right?

I admit it would be nice to hear a new plan from the bad guy. I know the typical goal seems to be death, destruction, and domination, but at least Crowley wanted to try and control Purgatory. Plus, how powerful is Eve? Is she on God's level, Lucifer's level, or a plane all on her own?

"...And Then There Were None" returned to that major storyline and focused on Eve's newest creation: a yet to be named parasite that crawled into the ear and took control of the human body. Sounds like the worst case of earworm ever.

Dean and Rufus

After some investigation, and Bobby wearing a suit, the trail led Sam and Dean to reunite with Rufus, Samuel, and Gwen. Someone should probably have told them that a gathering of more than a couple hunters usually doesn't end well.

In this case, it led to the deaths of three hunters. Yes, three.

First, there was Gwen Campbell, who came as a surprise simply because Dean pulled the trigger. It was unfortunate she hadn't been around longer for her death to have a dramatic impact. She was never a bad person. Misguided? Yes, but never evil. It's too bad she had to die.

Sam's headshot to Samuel was an even further surprise. I hadn't expected his story to end so abruptly. Plus, Sam wasn't possessed when he fired. What made him shoot? That was certainly a mouth hung open moment.

It would be disappointing if that were the last time Samuel was alive. He had a lot more story to tell about his background and his vast knowledge of the supernatural. He may have been a shady guy, but he served as an interesting opponent for the boys.

Hopefully, he comes back to life for some final revelations. If not, at least Dean was able to deliver the line, "Welcome to next time," to him.

The final shocking death involved Rufus. Although, after Gwen and Samuel, I had a strong feeling it was coming. It's sad that it was his friend Bobby who ended up killing him. He was a great character who has appeared multiple times with fantastic results.

If anything, the episode illuminated a bit of Rufus and Bobby's past. The two were clearly similar to Sam and Dean when they were younger. Even the story about Rufus mentoring Bobby added some great character development. I wouldn't mind seeing an episode focus on a younger Bobby and Rufus in action either.

The episode concluded nicely with a speech about forgiveness and a clean slate, but frankly, I was expecting more. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of great moments, but I was left feeling as if something was missing.

A long six weeks until Supernatural returns, hopefully the final stretch pays off.

What did you think of the episode? Sound off below.

I think that supernatural should end at season 6 because its time for Jared and Jenson give up sam and dean. there both married now its for them live their lifes. the show was supposed to end at season 5. we should honor the boys and let them go on with their lifes. we don't need a season 7

Who even says "Eve" is actually the same "Eve" from the Bible?(though obviously that's what you're supposed to think, seeing as how they've had the anti-christ, the devil, Micheal the archangel and so on already) Honestly how many shows/movies have used the name Eve simply to denote "the first"...This Eve seems to me to be simply the first monster, rather than the first female human. Even in Supernatural it'd be a bit of a stretch to say the first female God created not only ate the fruit allowing humanity to come into being but also all monsters? What does that say about humanity? Would they then be suggesting humans are monsters too? I think that's a bit much even for Supernatural, I think the only reason she's named Eve is to denote she's the first monster, anything else is pure speculation at this point(she's said nothing of the garden, eating the fruit etc etc)

"Hunter's Reunion"
I thought it was terrific TERRIFIC episode! reminded me a lot of season 1. I loved the way Dean acted in the ep, the last speech about family just made me cry.
Rufus will be missed. Im glad Samuel is dead. Din't like his character since he came on the show.
I'm loving Eve and her mysterious new monsters!!
I see where the writers are going with the Sam/Dean brothers relationship thing, and to be honest up until this ep i din't see it. Looking forward to the next ep.
Although i do think they should end it at this season. Just bring God into the picture,another mini-apocalypse and Dean saving the world! That would be just perfect!!
Also get a lady for Sam!!

I personally enjoy this season. I have enjoyed every season for their own reasons. I admit I wish Rufus didn't have to die but I can see why it was done.
I thought it was great that Sam killed Samuel. He warned him several times and did not want to take any chances. He really thought he had the worm inside of him and he was right. I think Sam is trying to make amends knowing that he's done a lot of wrong. He's trying to redeem himself.
My assumption on Eve is that she's supposed to represent the mother of all but yet she was the one to eat the forbidden fruit. She was tempted into the dark side so to speak. Possibly Adam will be the one to come back to stop her. Not brother Adam but Father Adam I guess...
It would be great if they could bring John Winchester back but being that the actor is most likely unavilable, that is probably not going to happen. Also, wasn't his body burned? Can they bring someone back to life whose body was cremated

I smell a Rufus/Bobby spinoff attempt. They're following the abortive path of the HuggyBear/Turk spinoff attempt from Starsky and Hutch. The show basically ripped off The Thing towards the end. They played the death of Samuel just right. Sam warned him three times, Samuel kept coming. He had to go down....But dead is not always dead on Supernatural.
