My Reaction and Thoughts on The 12th Episode of Supernatural of Season 1 after watching it for the first time.
Editor Notes: I had to cut out alot of the reaction because of the music montage in the episode. I really wanted to include it but had to cut this down to a 10 minute reaction. The full version is available to watch on my Patreon.
I found this episode more enjoyable compared to the last one because it builds on Dean’s character more and also there was another sighting of an actress I have seen in other TV Shows. I recognized Julie Benz. I know her from Roswell and Buffy The Vampire Slayer. She also had a few episodes in the spinoff of Buffy, called Angel. I know she would pop up into Supernatural somewhere as a guest star because she seems to pop in for characters of importance to the character.
Her role in Supernatural was probably just a one time since she has a fatal illness and will probably die off camera. The whole point of how Dean meets her, is the episode starts off in the middle of a chase of a Supernatural being. It’s one of those moments where you think, “Did I Miss An Episode”
Dean ends up getting electrocuted and his condition seems to be life threatening but he ignores doctors orders and walks out of the hospital.
Sam looks into a healer which leads them into a healer. In disbelief the healer asks Dean to come forward and “heals” him from his injury.
Along the way, Sam and Dean meet Julie Benz’s character. They learn that she has a fatal illness and is hoping to be “healed” like Dean was miraculously healed.
There is always a price to be paid for everyone that is saved the Dean and Sam learn that for everyone that gets saved, another has to die and that sends monster after a victim to restore the balance.
After they defeat the Supernatural being is raises the question of why Dean was spared and Julie Benz’s character can’t be saved. I like this episode because we see Dean feels responsible for another person other then his family and it’s good character development, in my opinion…
Supernatural is an American television series created by Eric Kripke. It was first broadcast on September 13, 2005, on The WB, and subsequently became part of successor The CW's lineup. Starring Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester and Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester, the series follows the two brothers as they hunt demons, ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings. The series was produced by Warner Bros. Television, in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision. Along with Kripke, executive producers have been McG, Robert Singer, Phil Sgriccia, Sera Gamble, Jeremy Carver, John Shiban, Ben Edlund and Adam Glass. Former executive producer and director Kim Manners died of lung cancer during production of the fourth season. The series was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, and surrounding areas and was in development for nearly ten years, as creator Kripke spent several years unsuccessfully pitching it. The pilot was viewed by an estimated 5.69 million viewers,and the ratings of the first four episodes prompted The WB to pick up the series for a full season. Originally, Kripke planned the series for three seasons but later expanded it to five. The fifth season concluded the series' main storyline, and Kripke departed the series as showrunner. The series continued on for several more seasons with new showrunners, including Sera Gamble, Jeremy Carver, Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb. With its eleventh season, Supernatural became the longest-running American live-action fantasy TV series. The series was renewed for a fifteenth and final season which consisted of 20 episodes, which premiered on October 10, 2019.The series concluded on November 19, 2020, with 327 episodes aired.
