Supernatural: My Heart Will Go On

Titanic shifts in the timeline...

By Joe Oesterle     April 17, 2011

 I’ve always been a sucker for “what-if” episodes, and if you promise me in your particular “what-if” version I’ll never have to listen to Celine Dion warble that blasted theme song again for the remainder of my life, then you have me riveted to my chair for as long as you need me there.

Of course that wasn’t the only beauty part. We also had a Castiel-heavy episode and mention of a war machine that presumably runs on souls. Cas was never the life of the party, but he seemed unusually dour even for him this time out. Seems like whatever is going to eventually go down, it’s taken its toll on our favorite rumpled angel. This episode probably opened more questions than it answered, but after 6 weeks, it was just good to see the boys in action again.

 That's the review?

 I was thinking the same thing, fenngibbon...multiple paragraphs dedicated to Smallville managing to not entirely suck for one episode, and this is all they give Supernatural?  I CALL SHENANIGANS!

I hated the first quarter of the episode....felt very "Final Destination"-like, but once the ball started rolling with Balthazar, Cas and Atropos I started to have fun with it.  I would love to have seen a much darker episode featuring the 3 sisters (and maybe someday we will), but I am just happy that they did use the correct sister for the role she was playing in the episode.

I wish they would have left well enough alone and kept Celine Dion from ever finding stardom.

 Ummmm....I saw on IMDB that Mary Winchester was supposedly in this episode....did anybody see her in this episode?  Did I seriously miss something here?!

 Ya this episode to me really didn't pick up until about 1/3 of the way in.  Then it was a great episode.  I love the musical walking montage of them tempting Fate!!  

Now that i've seen how this season has developed again after the first 1/3 of it was out of the way I can now understand that they will continue this arc into Season 7 and maybe finish it off there.  But with the Angels, and Eve there is a crap ton of story to still tell.

Sadly, I thought this episode was a bit crap.  Sure, the idea of the Titanic never having sunk, and Celine Dion living in obscurity, is pretty cool, but it was pretty much a filler episode.  Sure, we found out that the war machine seems to need souls (why and how is confounding to me now), but we could've been given that information in any number of ways.  As awesome as it is to see Ellen, this one was a miss for me.

yet again, a long over explanatory review of why Smallville has ruined tv blah blah blah, and yet when you claim that Supernatural is a thousand times better you hardly give us any reason. I would easily say B A- range. It was nice to see Ellen and Bobby as a couple and the string theory that went along with what happened if the Titanic didn't sink. Plus Fate as a pissed off little minx who wants some work just because the Apocalypse was averted. C'mon! really?

This show runs on the strength of the characters, and all of them carried this particular episode in my opinon.  Certainly a low-point in the season but still great to see everyone again, I hate how long they take when they go on hiatus, they need to improve that shit, especially for a show that's in its 6th season, they should have the writing and shooting figured out and be able to deliver episodes without a huge hiatus, it's not like they need fan support to continue story arcs, not at this point in the series!!

JIm Beaver has put himself in the position of best actor on this show, demostrating what it might actually be like to live this hunter lifestyle and suffer personal losses on a regular basis, the toll it's taking on Bobby is genuine.

FakeJared, Joe's not allowed to write a big review for Supernatural like he is for Smallville.  It's not his choice, but rather an editorial one.

DaForce1 4/18/2011 11:19:44 AM

 Again, this episode was setting up that Cas is changing and willing to do things he normally wouldn't do now that he's a general in the war in heaven. He was willing to change fate to get 50,000 new souls for his war. That's actually a pretty big deal considering how Cas how dealt with time travel in the previous episodes. Not to mention that Sam and Dean are bigger players on the board than we've previously thought. 

Once again, every episode lays the groundwork (however small) for the bigger stuff to come.
