Supernatural (Tuesday nights, 9pm, CW)
By Paula R. Stiles

This week, we have “The Werther Project” (10.19). So far, we’ve got a promo, the official synopsis, promotional photos, and a sneak peek.

We also had a last-minute producer’s preview last week for 10.18, as well as a second sneak peek. We may get some this week, too.

The synopsis for 10.21 is up:

“Dark Dynasty” – (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)

THE WINCHESTERS MEET THE STYNES – Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) investigate a bizarre murder and realize the killer bears the same tattoo as those from the Styne family. Eldon Styne (guest star David Hoflin) attacks Dean and a brutal fight ensues. Meanwhile, Castiel (Misha Collins) acts as referee when Charlie (guest star Felicia Day) and Rowena (guest star Ruth Connell) are forced to work together on the Book of the Damned. Crowley (Mark Sheppard) discovers his mother is missing and knows she’s up to something so he turns to an old enemy for help. Robert Singer directed this episode written by Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner (#1021). Original airdate 5/6/2015.

In addition, there was a brief behind-the-scenes outtake from the episode (which is currently being filmed, as the last filmed episode of the season). It shows Dean exiting a pizza parlor right before being attacked. It looks as though Castiel will get some kind of thumping, too.

A brief interview with Misha Collins indicates there will be at least one twist at the very end of the season.

The curse of Charlie Sue persisted as “Book of the Damned” sank back to a dismal 0.6/1 in demo and 1.76 million in audience from the previous original episode. Arrow‘s recently sinking ratings probably haven’t helped.

In addition, we got the Live+7 ratings for “Paint it Black,” which rose from a 0.7 to a 1.4.


We’ll be back next week with more news, spoilers and blatantly unabashed self-promotion. Stay tuned and check out our reviews of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Event, Once Upon a Time, Grimm and Supernatural.
