CW series Supernatural premiered its sixth season on Friday, September 24.
In the fifth season finale, Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) falls into the pit of Hell and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) shows up to his long -lost girlfriendís house. However, Sam didnít stay in hell because he was shown right outside Deanís house.
This season, Sam is back and Dean is out of the family hunting business. His return may have been early, but it wouldnít be right without him. Dean is living the life he always wanted: a family and a home with a white fence dream. However, the viewer is left wondering how long that can last.
His days as a hunter do come in handy with the life he is now living - he didnít lose all of it, but is just a little rusty. At least he still has his kicking 1967 Chevy Impala with his hunter equipment in the truck, and it goes to show that he hasnít lost the reckless bad boy hunter within.
In this episode Dean gets poisoned with Gjinn poison, which makes him have hallucination that Yellow Eyes is back and ready to take away his fairytale life. Sam saves him from dying with an antidote that their grandfather made.
Dean wakes up but doesnít believe that it really is Sam there; Sam proves him wrong and tells Dean that for the past year, he has been out and hunting. Everyone including Bobby knows about it, but he is not alone - his maternal cousins and his late grandfather are there too.
At this point, the viewer is left wondering how a dead character could possibly come back. But viewers are then shown at least some action towards the end, with Dean and Sam fighting some Gjinn.
This season so far doesnít hold up the standard many had set for it. Instead of all the talking and questions that they were doing in this episode, at least they could have put more fighting, or even some of the humor from Dean and Sam that viewers love so much. There could have even been more dramatic suspense into it, instead of what seemed like a soap opera. Still, viewers can only hope that it will get better with the rest of the season and be once again the show they love to watch.
Supernatural airs on Fridays at 9 p.m. (8 Central) on the CW.
