Supernatural Round Table: "Plucky Pennywhistle's Magic Menagerie"

at . Comments

Supernatural clowned around last week and aired one of its best episodes in years.

So, naturally, our Round Table Team of Carissa Pavlica, Sean McKenna and Matt Richenthal has plenty to say about "Plucky Pennywhistle's Magic Menagerie." Let's get right to it, shall we?


What was your favorite moment from the episode?
Carissa: I just liked watching Sam squirm with the clowns. I'd protect him.

Sean: Probably a good majority of Dean’s lines, but I loved the scene at the very at the end with Dean cracking up at Sam covered in glitter. It was a priceless moment that wasn’t hindered by their larger issues.

Matt: Dean letting Sam know that he might run into a giant robot the size of a house that shoots laser beams. Sam gets all the luck. Good thing he only ran into clowns. Oh... wait.

Supernatural Round Table 1-27-15

What fear of yours would you draw?
Carissa: I can't even say it out loud because it's too horrific. Noooo. No no no. And it's not a fake fear, but a real one and I don't ever want to encounter it.

Sean: I know it sounds cliché, but I’m not a fan of spiders. Big. Hairy. Eight Legged. Well, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Or maybe spiders with laser beams coming out of their eyes.

Matt: I fear Round Table panelists who don't directly answer questions. (Cough... cough... Carissa... cough... cough.). Oh, and mice. They can squeeze through any crack!

Did you think the switching back and forth between "now" and the countdown timer worked?
Carissa: Now. Then. No matter the time switch, it was an classic enjoyable and funny episode of Supernatural.

Sean: It didn’t really add anything to the story, but I guess it went in line with the extreme cases of the episode. Oh, yes, unicorns do shoot rainbows out of their...

Matt: Not really. This isn’t 24, although I wonder what would happen if Jack Bauer met Sam and Dean?

The brothers seemed to be in a good place. Do you think they are past the killing of Amy and Dean's daughter or will that problem reappear again?
Carissa: I don't think they've even scratched the surface of what happened. It will come back.

Sean: I agree with Carissa, there’s no way it can be all wrapped up. Something will help dig up those feelings to their fullest again.

Matt: Maybe, but with these two, something that personal can’t be simply pushed under the rug.


Haunted by past kills? I don't think anyone could lose a daughter, in any fashion, and it not affect them. Will these issues be directly dealt with again, possibly, but they have changed the characters and that will continue to follow them. It's not only that Dean has lost a daughter, but Sam has to deal with the fact that he killed his own niece. Loss and pain are unfortunately an aspect of the Winchester life.


Favorite moment? Dean getting to laugh. He's had a really bad time this year, well, he's had a really shitty life, so anytime he gets to loosen up and have some fun is just wonderful to enjoy. Sam covered in glitter was great, made me giggle, but Dean's reaction really made me laugh. Your Fear? I don't know, seriously. I remember having some fears when I was a kid, but nothing that's really stuck with me through adulthood. I don't like snakes, but they aren't my biggest fear. My fears are more real, like the loss of people that I love. How would you draw something like that, and could you really face that loss enough to draw it? Countdown timer? Not really. It comes down to the need for it to add something to the show, and it simply didn't.


Actually, it usually is on a wednesday that they get the Round Table out. What IS unusual is that there are so few questions and no 'summing up' sentence or two at the end of them.


And why so late ? Supernatural aired on friday,and you just now (wed) get to the round table ?


Unicorn. Enough said.


Mina007 I agree why. Only 4 questions


Why only 4 questions?
