Supernatural Season 8 Premiere: Hatchets, Flashbacks, Secrets & Laughs

Supernatural returned for its eighth season with flashbacks, purgatory hatchets, a few laughs and a very secretive, paranoid Dean (Jensen Ackles). Don’t worry Dean fans – the eldest Winchester brother hasn’t changed too much, he still enjoys burgers and fries.

Season 8 began one year after Dean disappeared. Covered in blood, he emerged out of purgatory at a couple’s campsite, with a strange hatchet in his left hand and a gun in his right. Dean was also harboring a demon, who helped him escape from purgatory, in his left arm. The mystery behind their allegiance will take us through Supernatural’s mid-season finale. “Man in the Wilderness” from STYX was the song that ushered in Dean’s return.

Most of the premiere was spent catching us up to speed on what took place over the last year.

“Most days felt like 360 degree combat.” – Dean

While Dean was fighting his way through purgatory, Sam (Jared Padalecki) had retired from hunting. The youngest Winchester had a dog and new girlfriend. He also discarded all of his old phones, which meant he wasn’t checking his messages. Not the most ideal choice, considering there was a prophet named Kevin (guest star Osric Chau) who needed his help to get away from Crowley (Mark Sheppard).

The retired Sam bit felt like a return to the Season 6 premiere, “Exile on Main St.” At the end of Season 5, Dean thought Sam was lost following the battle between Michael and Lucifer. Dean retired from hunting and moved in with Lisa and her son Ben. Surprisingly, when Sam did the same thing, Dean was angry.

Once Sam and Dean found Kevin, they learned that Crowley had uncovered a new word of God. Before going into hiding, Kevin rescued it from Crowley. The new tablet would allow them the hunters to close the gates of hell forever.

It’s the beginning of a new season of angels and demons. Castiel (Misha Collins) is just “gone” and the secret of what happened to him is buried within another Dean flashback. Don’t worry Castiel will be returning soon enough.

Dean’s always been the more hardcore hunter of the two brothers, so inherently their dynamic is still the same. However, Dean’s secret Purgatory Pal, Benny (Ty Olsson), may lead to some drama down the road.

Favorite Lines from “We Need to Talk about Kevin”:
“The rules are simple, Sam. You don’t take a joint from a guy named don and there’s no dogs in the car” – Dean to Sam

“So you’re lookin’ for a soul train.” – Dean says to Benny in Purgatory.

When Sam and Dean travel to Michagen to look for Kevin, Sam says, “Maybe we should split up, ask around to see if anybody’s seen him?”
Dean replies: “Yeah. Asian kid. Yay high at a university. That should be easy.”

During the climax, Crowley releases control of Kevin’s girlfriend for a short moment. When she asks what’s going on, Kevin says to her, “There’s a demon in you and you’re going to your safety school, But it’s going to be okay.”

    Of course Dean was angry. When Sam jumped in the cage, Dean tried to find a way to save him, even though he promised not to. My point is, at least he tried. The entire concept of Sam just walking away & “living a normal” isn’t the Winchester way. I understand that the boys are older but, a mans love for his brother does not change with age. I’m sorry but, I think Carver made a major faux pas on this one.

    ” Dean retired from hunting and moved in with Lisa and her son Ben. Surprisingly, when Sam did the same thing, Dean was angry.” Surprisingly?!?! Dean promised Sam to stop hunting, tho he was looking for a way to get Sam out of Hell. But I don’t remember Sam made such promise to Dean!!! I don’t have a problem with him not hunting but he could at least spend one day to search for Dean, OR just keep one of his phones in case Dean wanted to contact him!

    I am not a Sam fan. I am and always will be a Dean´s girl but I think there is more into it that what they are showing us. I hope that for once, Sam was not a selfish bastard and he was doing something for getting Dean back.
