What I love most about Supernatural is the fact that they do episodes just like this one. Easily one of my top favorites, this episode also had me hiding in embarrassment and laughing so hysterically I was glad to have no one whiteness it. With that, I must also gush about how much I love this show's ability to make me squee with utter joy.
What's more terrifying than fighting ghosts? Why, an all girls school interpretation of the Supernatural books into a musical play! No, really, you read that right. If you went into this episode expecting a lot of singing, you were gravely mistaken. However, the show breaks the 4th wall to once again remind us that it can make fun of itself. The show we loved has given us a reprieve from the heart breaking sadness that carves at our souls. To show us a lighter, fun, side to itself. When Dean catches wind of a missing Drama teacher he decides it's a case they must take. Sam, is a little more reserved since there's no evidence suggesting this case has anything to do with the supernatural they hunt. Dean wins, because Dean always wins, and they go check things out. Here they stumble onto the play that is their lives in musical form. Can we blame Chuck? Yes we can. Why? Because he wrote the stupid books (well, "Winchester gospel") that started all of this mess. More than unhappy, and shocked, to see this play being produced, the brothers must find out what happened to the drama teacher. All signs point to her being drunk and not dead by some creature.
Just when Sam is about to make Dean leave the case another disappearance happens. This time, the girl who wrote, produced, and is directing the play, saw what happened to her friend. A scarecrow kidnapped her. Yep, scarecrow. Of course, things are never just that simple. A Greek Goddess is really behind everything. She's been "protecting " the play from people who want to shut it down so she can see the play come to life...and then eat the author. Why? Goddess reasons. Onto the plan, Sam and Dean decide to stay and help the play happen. They're not really happy about it, but they have to...
During the play the scarecrow appears. Sam and Dean are armed and ready, but Sam never sees the creature appear behind him. He doesn't expect to get caught. When he wakes up, he's in the basement with the girl and missing drama teacher. Our Goddess reveals herself and traps Sammy. All while the scarecrow appears to bring our producer to its mistress. Dean ends up fighting it on stage while Sam gets an assist from the missing girl. He and Dean both stab their opponents at the same time. And both the Goddess and scarecrow erupt into gross goo.
The play ends with a vocal rendition of 'Carry On My Wayward Son.' And I did sing along. In the end, the boys leave with a vow to keep hunting. Our producer girl is met with the mysterious publisher she had invited. Now, this show seriously knows how to mess with me. The producer? He's Chuck. Let me just get this straight. We can tease me with Chuck actually showing up, but we can't bring Gabriel back? Why!? This show is out to get me. I swear it's true.
