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

This week is Impala-themed “Baby” (11.04). You can check out the official synopsis, the official promo from the CW, the CHCH promo, and official photos, as well as the odd behind-the-scenes photo. There’s also a vague spoiler from TV Line, as well as one about a guest character in 11.11.

Titles so far are “Out of the Darkness, Into the Fire” (11.01), “Form and Void” (11.02), “The Bad Seed” (11.03), “Baby” (11.04), “Thin Lizzie” (11.05), “Our Little World” (11.06), “Plush” (11.07), “Just My Imagination” (11.08), “O Brother Where Are Thou?” (11.09), “The Devil in the Details” (11.10), “The Sound of Silence” (11.11), and “Don’t You Forget About Me” (11.12).

Some behind-the-scenes photos and video are still coming out for last week’s episode.

The synopsis for 11.06 (“Our Little World”) is up:

“Our Little World” – (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)

METRATRON RETURNS – Castiel (Misha Collins) seeks out Metatron’s (guest star Curtis Armstrong) help to stop the Darkness. However, Metatron is pretty happy with his new life as a freelance videographer for the local news and isn’t inclined to help the Winchesters (Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles) or Castiel. Meanwhile, Crowley (Mark Sheppard) is losing his hold on Amara. John Showalter directed the episode written by Robert Berens (#1106). Original airdate 11/11/2015.

There was another convention this weekend in Chicago.

The show sank to a rather woeful 0.6/2 in the A18-49 demo and 1.59 million in audience in the finals. Despite tying its lowest demo, it didn’t quite match its lowest audience. More significantly, this still put it third for the week on the CW in both categories, behind The Flash and Arrow. The CW just plain had a bad week. Historically, the show has bounced back up from such lows, particularly when it remained steady in relation to other CW shows.

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.
