Supernatural - "Wayward Sisters" - Season 13 Episode 10 Review

By Kaylynn Kasandra


It’s quite hard to ignore that this episode was used to set the foundation for the spin off from the series. I’m not sure how much you may have heard of it, but I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t watch. I wasn’t too sold on the idea of Jodie and her group of ladies getting their own spin off. But, they sold me after this episode and I can see why they played it this way. I could complain once more about how this episode was lacking a cameo from my favorite, Cas. But, I am sure nobody wants to hear that yet again. But, honestly, I never thought I would say I would complain over not seeing Sam and Dean throughout the majority of the episode.

Like I mentioned previously, my suspicion is that they did that to set up the spin off. That being said, it isn’t any less irritating. I am used to the episodes derailing from the season’s big storyline to go back to cases. So, that part really doesn’t bother me. The more I think about it, the more annoyed I am. I just don’t think it’s right for a show to take such a departure with its usual starring characters. It almost felt as though I was watching this new spin off instead of Supernatural. So much so that for the first 10 minutes I really thought for a second I was confused and that was the case.

Again, don’t get me wrong, I’m for the spin-off. I’m just not for this marketing incognito. I think the spin-off could stand well enough alone that they really didn’t need to make the winter premiere all about them. Donna is a hilarious character, so seeing her back is nice. I am still not 100% sold on Patience yet if I am honest. Let’s hope that changes. I like Jodi, so it’s always nice to see her come back. Claire is like a female Dean with a hint of Sam, so she’s cool in my book. But Alex, eh, we will see. If that’s the ensemble planned, they’ll be great.

I did let myself be tricked into thinking that Kaia may actually be an asset to this all female team. Unfortunately, as we all saw, that didn’t quite happen. The mystery inter-dimensional elfish looking sword lady killed her. But she is her? This is going to make for a very interesting plot twist that I absolutely can’t wait to see unfold. And something I feel will be the start to the spin-off as well. Which makes it seem its forcing us all into watching.

I honestly wish I had way more to say about this episode. I was so excited for it. It seemed to have to so much potential for awesomeness. I was hoping to at least see a dinosaur and got king kong and a dreamwalkers doppelganger instead. Here’s hoping next week feels more like the Supernatural we all know. I’m all for cameos and crossovers, but not when it feels it’s the stars of the show doing them.

The X-Files - "Plus One" - Season 11 Episode 3

By Kaylynn Kasandra


Of all the episodes since X-files made its return, this has to be my favorite. Surprising since it lead us nowhere in terms of the big plot. It did however give me that feeling of nostalgia that we so often crave from the shows we know and grew up watching. X-files for me has always had a soft spot in my heart. It was a show I always watched with grandma, and this episode had the same feel of those episodes. Even though they ignored the big storyline, I wasn’t upset by it at all. We get to remember what it’s like to follow Mulder and Scully on their cases. And this one was quite… interesting.

I really liked the idea behind the case. Psychic twins who can create killer doppelgangers of their enemies from a child’s game. Can’t say that is all too common. And it was done in quite the tongue in cheek manner. I liked that they had the same actress play the twin brother as well. It added a level of humor. But, it also added to the feeling of the paranoia one must feel when seeing visions of themselves. I for one think it would absolutely terrifying to suddenly be plagued by visions of myself. To me that just seems so much more unnerving than any other supernatural being you may see. Unless of course you were born with an identical twin. Which, in that case, you’re probably used to that feeling. Just not the murderous part, or at least I would hope not.

I also think it was nice to see the connection between Mulder and Scully again. Many fans are probably really upset by the idea that William isn’t actually Mulder’s son. So to have the idea proposed that Scully may once again want a child, that’s a big win. At least for me. I can only see it being negative in a few areas if I were to be completely honest. One being if Scully were to be pregnant it would make her more vulnerable. Another playing of that, she would leave the baby vulnerable to being messed with by the smoking man. Which, could in fact actually be playing into his hands all along.

I do have to say, in terms of this case, Fox and Dana got really lucky. Seeing how the twins played their deadly game of hangman using their last names, they were given some extra time to figure things out. Even better, the twins allowed for their childlike bickering to take over and ended the deadly game with each other’s names. Thus again working out nice for Fox and Dana.

I’m curious to see how the timeline will play out throughout the season. I mean, if Scully does indeed end up pregnant, will they stretch that out or speed it up? Also, are we going to be given little pebbles slowly through the season in regards to William? Or are we not going to see him again this season? I just have a feeling we will be having a few more case episodes before we get anymore developments in those regards. I’m just happy they brought the show back and it’s not cheesy. It’s been done very well in my opinion and I hope they keep doing it. I’m really excited to see where this season will lead.

The Path Season 3 Premiere! - Episodes 1-3

By Kaylynn Kasandra

After what seemed to me to have been a lifetime, I was pleased to see that The Path returned with not two, but three new episodes. Having been ill, I was quite happy to have essentially three hours to binge watch. Let me tell you, the wait didn’t disappoint! Within the first few minutes, I was sucked in! Sadly, the pace slowed down over the course of the three episodes, but the premiere episodes didn’t disappoint overall. Seeing Eddie take on a super human role in the start of the return episode was pretty cool. I have not been shy in showing I am team Eddie, so I was glad to see others see how awesome he is.

 I would be lying if I said it wasn’t more satisfying for me to see Creepy Cal squirm having had witnessed Eddie’s epic Daernerys (Game of Thrones anyone?) moment. Creepy Cal has been way too comfortable in his role as leader of the movement. Now he is so disturbed by Eddie’s new role he took Mary, their baby, and fled. In true Creepy Cal style he stole the very ideas and structure of the movement and rebranded it as his own. He used it for his own financial gain as well as to feel that power of leadership once again. It bit him in the ass though. Again, making me very happy as I watched it all unfold. His traveling life coach show gig landed him in quite the pickle: he became all but a personal slave to an ex-athlete with some serious issues. Being the assholes they are, Mary and Cal were completely fine extorting this severe mental case until it became clear how much of a physical threat he was to them. While all this was unfolding Cal was still dealing with all of his own issues. He tries so very hard to push it all down and ignore it. As always, Mary isn’t blind to it. But she also has issues of her own, which is sure to come back to bite them in the ass later this season. I mean seriously… what was she thinking stealing from that mental athlete dude? And his rings of all things? Come on!

Now let’s delve into my next least favorite character, Sara. She still seems to be the same overly trusting, bad decision making, selfish jerk that she has always been. I can’t be the only one who watched these episodes thinking her new friendship with this professor is going to be her downfall this season. That and her new obsession with that crazy bondage therapy she and Cal tried together. Once again showing us they have no freaking chance of ever breaking up their ridiculous co-dependent relationship. I’ve always said Sara is just as jacked up as Cal, and I think this season we will get to see that more and more.

While on the subject of hard to break habits, Eddie seems to keep making some as well. This time he has let this Logan kid blind him into thinking maybe, just maybe he’s like he was at his age. But after Logan began fighting with Hawk we see a change of heart from Eddie, and he’s quick to show Logan the door. But really, who he needs to be worrying about is Veda. His new publicist that seemed to come just as he came out of the fire. I mean who the hell is this creepy lady and her even creepier mom Lilith anyways? They keep insinuating she is like the snake who we kept seeing around Steve in Eddie’s visions. Even knowing they were bad news from the start I was still shocked to hear them talking about Eddie’s death and how it needs to happen so they can live. That’s some creepy stuff that I can’t wait to learn more about.

I really hope in this season we will see more from Hawk. It seems as though he has found his way in terms of leadership within the movement, which is nice. But, I need to see more. Whatever happened to him levitating in the woods? Are we going to ever go back to that, or is this just going to be something we keep ignoring happened? I don’t want to give up hope that Hawk is going to be the key to everything when things start to unravel. Which, I believe is going to happen soon seeing as our new friends are around and Cal is on his way back.

Let’s just hope Hawk doesn’t get all emotional this season when it really matters. He seems to do that. There are quite a lot of new things happening within the movement with how things are run. Especially with the interfaith connections being made. Let’s hope these bonds will bring more positive than drama. Because frankly, I have a feeling they will have their fill of problems coming their way this season.
