Supernatural Round Table: "How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters"

at . Comments

Welcome to the latest edition of the Supernatural Round Table!

Below, Carissa Pavlica, Kate Moon and Sean McKenna break down "How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters," an episode of this CW hit that took our favorite pair of siblings into the woods of New Jersey. As always, reader feedback on the following topics is encouraged...


What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?
Carissa: "You don't shook Bambi, jackass. You shoot Bambi's mother."

Kate: Damn, Carissa, you took my favorite quote! A close second would be the waiter who called Sam "Big Bird"; Dean "Ken doll"; and Bobby a "creepy uncle."  Totally awesome. Waiters have been pulling some heavy weight on Supernatural lately!

Sean: I agree with both Carissa and Kate about those lines, but I jumped when the turducken infested cannibal woke back up and laughed when Sam, Dean and Bobby unloaded an unnecessary number of bullets into it. Scary and funny: that’s what Supernatural does best.

Supernatural Round Table 1-27-15

What do you think of Dick Roman as the Leviathan leader?
Carissa: He's okay, but I'm never going to get behind the Leviathan in general as a big bad. Don't like them. Don't find them interesting and I don't like them usurping my monster of the week. I wanted a damned Jersey Devil!

Kate: I loved him from the start and I love him even more now. He's the epitome of a corporate, bureaucratic douche...and what's more "evil" than that right now? The writers did a great job of capturing the political climate in Supernatural and I found the segment of "Rise of Dick" and all the double entendre really funny! 

Sean: I thought the entendre stuff about the “Rise of Dick” was funny, too, but I just don’t find him as intimidating or scary compared to Lucifer, the angels, or even Yellow Eyes. He seems like the perfect villain for a political or law drama, but for Supernatural he hasn’t hooked me yet. Maybe with a turducken...

What about the Leviathan plans to use Turducken?
Carissa: I don't understand their plans. Maybe it's because I don't care about them and I've not listened well enough. Their scheme is to use Turducken to make everyone fat and high on Turducken until they die? Surely they have easier ways to kill the human race than through Turducken.

Kate: Finally! An explanation for the obesity epidemic! Pure comedic genius or just lame... it's a fine line they walk. It's so absurd that I'm going to go with pure genius.  You have to hand it to them; no one's tried to conquer the world through a trio of delicious avians.

Sean: Unfortuntely, Kate, I’m going with lame. It could have been a better idea had it been connected to a monster of the week, but the season’s big bad? But really, what are there plans? Maybe the Leviathan are all a figment of Sam’s imagination and he is starving, so that’s why the Leviathan are so hungry. I’m just waiting for the larger scaled plans.

Do you think Sam actually has a handle on his broken mind?
Carissa: As much of a handle as you can have after being tortured in a cage in hell with Lucifer and some other guy. Weren't there three of them? Was the other one the two episode brother who got the short end of the Winchester stick? See? These Leviathan are melting MY brain.

Kate: It seems like it at the moment. Lucifer hasn't made an appearance in ages. I'm more worried about suicidal Dean at the moment and I think Sam can handle himself even if Lucifer is haunting him.

Sean: Don’t the brothers always say they have it under control when they don’t have it under control. The topic keeps popping up almost subtly every now and then, so I have a feeling something big will happen concerning it.

Will Bobby die?
Carissa: I have a very frightening feeling that Bobby will die. And that Sam and Dean will ask a Leviathan to bring him back to "life." Surely that can't happen, right? We can't lose Cass and Bobby in the same front end of a season. It's just not right. If we were truly back to the monster of the week, it would be easier to accept. Leviathan are just as bad as fighting Lucifer, and not as entertaining. Take away our two best wise-crackers and what do we have? Sam and Dean fighting boring Leviathan for the rest of their lives. No thank you.

Kate: The heartfelt moment between Bobby and Dean in the car made it seem like Bobby would be the next to leave the Winchesters. I really hope not because Bobby is such a breath of fresh, realistic air for the brothers. And to lose both Castiel and Bobby would be such a horrible blow for us all. 

Sean: I hope not, especially after they already killed Castiel. If he does die, I wonder if Sam and Dean will make a deal to bring him back. They did reintroduce the Crossroads Demon recently. But two major deaths? I don’t know if I can handle that. Only about two weeks before we find out!


lol when you think about it Dean talks about how terrible tnihgs would be without Sam, but now that we know what Sam did without Dean, I think it's the exact opposite, i mean Sam was really screwed up after Dean died


I agree with Carissa the Leviathins are boring and Dick really isnt that intimidating, he shot Bobby with a gun, a human could have done that. If they kill of Bobby I am going to be extremely angry. The show just lost Cas and now it wants to lose Bobby, no thats nt okay the show will be boring with out Bobby. Bobby is in a lot of episodes and he is a really important character to the show so I just cant c the show without him. Now about Sam like Sean said anytime the boys say they are in control of whatever issue they have, they usually dont hav it under control. The whole Sam keeps being brought so I think something big will happen. And I think that Supernatural could have another season to finish the arc, but they better improve it somehow like Carey said "It needs a better villian, better character arcs, better stand-alones, and better writers. Ben Edlund seems to be the only competent writer left."


This show doesn't need another season. It needs a better villian, better character arcs, better stand-alones, and better writers. Ben Edlund seems to be the only competent writer left. I'm hoping that it turns out that Dick is just a smoke screen for the REAL boss. The one with the attitude that we saw at the beginning of the season in Castiel. I'm hoping he's still in his body and is readying....some big plan.


I do agree that this show needs another season if it wants to complete the arc, however, I do no agree with killing Bobby. All Supernatural fans know that death is never premanent on the show, but writing Bobby out of the show just after Cas has died is killing not only me, but nearly all other SPN fans as well. While Sera Gamble is a great thinker and has the ability to come up with really amazing storylines, I feel that this is one thing fans will not apperciate her for, if Bobby does in fact die.


I agree with raiders5869 this show needs another season. Like every minute of the show also like walking dead too but that show is doing great. Supernatural needs the fans it started out with from ep1


Can anyone tell me if Supernatural will have season? I'm so sick of all these reality shows or cop shows (CSI,NCIS).I watched ever episode since day 1 and the story lines keep getting better,what other show can do that.I watch alot of T.V I mean alot and no other show is has good except American Horror Story and Walking Dead,not as good but getting their.I'm also glad they bought the Demons back hopefully more.Who every reads this tell your friend or go on Facebook and tell people to watch or record on DVR WE NEED MORE FANS FOR ANOTHER SEASON.
