Review: Supernatural 12×12 “Stuck in The Middle (With You)”

The most recent episode of season twelve sees our favourite hunters busy in hunting down a powerful demon together with their mum and the angel Castiel. Unlike the rest of the episodes of Supernatural, “Stuck in the middle (with you)” starts by showing the dream team already at work on a case while they try to come up with a plan to kill the demon. The storytelling of the episode in not linear, in fact, which makes the whole story way more engaging and interesting. I guess this is one of the qualities that has allowed the show to run for at least 13 years: the capacity to invent and find new elements and plots that are still able to entertain the audience. The plot of this episode is by far one of the best we’ve seen during this season and the introduction of flashbacks and flashforwards made it even more intriguing.

Dean, Sam, Castiel and Mary have to deal with a demon, an incredibly powerful one. He is, in fact, one of the Princes of Hell, almost as bad as Lucifer himself. Castiel gets severely injured in the fight against Ramiel, the demon, as he stabs him with the lance of Michael, a lance that kills angels softly and painfully. Thanks to the help of Crowley, aka the King of Hell, they manage to defeat Ramiel and save Castiel from his death.

In this episode we find out that Mary is working with the British Men of Letters while hiding it from her boys. Is she going to cause a lot of troubles? Are Sam and Dean going to get really mad at their mum when they find out? Yes, yes to both and honestly I look forward for when it happens.

*SPOILER ALERT*
Lucifer is back, let’s celebrate!

My Top 3 Favourite Shows.

As my first post of this blog, here is a list of my favourite TV Shows. It was extremely hard to choose just three of them but I finally managed to do it.

  • Supernatural

12 years ago Dean knocked on the door of his little brother Sam to tell him that dad John had gone on a hunt and he hadn’t come back home since. Well, these are the risks you face when you hunt supernatural creatures for a living. Ever since then, the Winchester brothers have been driving around the States looking for new monsters to kill and people to safe. This is their family business after all.

Favourite Character: Sam Winchester

  • Shameless US

The title of the show explains a lot of its plot. Sex, drugs and illegal affairs as well as love, family and powerful feelings, are at the heart of Shameless. Set in the south side of Chicago, It tells the story of the Gallaghers, a dysfunctional family in which dad Frank is a selfish alcoholic and mum Monica is an addict with mental health issues that keeps running away. Fiona, the oldest of seven children, has to take over the place of her parents and keep the family together by taking care of her siblings.

Favourite Character: Lip Gallagher.

  • Glee

The Glee Club was a safe place for all those people, in the show as in real life, who felt like they didn’t fit in anywhere. “Being a part of something special makes you special” was the favourite quote of many “Gleeks” aka the fandom. “Glee” celebrates being different, a reject, by telling the story of a group of teenagers who are all part of the Glee Club at their school, The William McKinley High School.

Favourite Character: Kurt Hummel
