THE statement that SN is only on hiatus through the strike is to appease the thousands of upset fans who signed petitions, called and wrote the network upon learning SN was being removed from the schedule after their initial episodes here ran. Network executives had no clue that anyone would be upset and still don’t seem to grasp that we do not want our favorite show shunted aside and forgotten about.
The CW Schedules Remaining ‘Supernatural’ Episodes
Though the CW recently announced that they won’t be airing repeats of Supernatural any time soon, it’s not all bad news for fans of the fright-filled series. The network has confirmed that the show will return on January 31, and is set to consecutively air its remaining four episodes. This means that Supernatural addicts will be seeing the last of the Winchester brothers on February 21, and may not see them again until after the writers’ strike wraps up.
For fans who can’t wait until the end of the month and want to know some details on the remaining episodes, we have a few intriguing spoilers to share.
Episode 3.9 – “Witch Hunt” – Airing 1/31/08
This episode will reveal a surprising origin story for Ruby (Katie Cassidy), and also see her working with Dean.
Episode 3.10 – “Dream A Little Dream of Me” – Airing 2/7/08
We learn how Bobby got into demon hunting, and also see more of how Dean (Jensen Ackles) feels about going to Hell. Creator Eric Kripke says that, “Something big happens to him that makes him realize he desperately wants to live and he desperately doesn’t want to go to Hell.” Bela (Lauren Cohan) also returns in this episode.
Episode 3.11 – “Jus In Bello” – Airing 2/14/08
Ruby will attempt to perform a spell that requires the heart of a human who is pure and innocent. Agent Henriksen from the FBI descends on the small town of Monument, Colorado and captures Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean. They spend some time in the slammer.
Episode 3.12 – “Mystery Spot” – Airing 2/21/08
An episode reminiscent of the film Groundhog Day, which finds the boys repeating the same day over and over again. Eric Kripke reveals, “Sam basically wakes up every day and it’s the same day and Dean dies at the end of every single day. It’s actually quite funny.”
After Supernatural airs its final episode, new episodes of Reaper will fill its time slot beginning on February 28.
