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