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

This week episode is “Thin Lizzie” (11.05). You can check out the official synopsis, the official promo from the CW, the CHCH promo, and official photos.

There was some speculation about some behind-the-scenes photos put out last week that the show might be doing another Christmas episode this season. Thing is, they’re already filming episodes that won’t appear until the new year, but then again, these photos might be for episodes already filmed.

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).

The synopsis for 11.07 (“Plush”) is up:

“Plush” – (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, DLV) (HDTV)

SHERIFF DONNA RETURNS – Sheriff Donna (guest star Briana Buckmaster) calls Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help after a horrific murder with supernatural elements happens in her town. Sam continues to have visions and asks God for help, which frustrates Dean. Tim Andrew directed the episode written by Eric Charmleo & Nicole Snyder (#1107). Original airdate 11/18/2015.

TV Line talked to Jensen Ackles about upcoming episodes and also did a postmortem of this past week’s “Baby,” with a few new related spoilers for the unexpected Matt Cohen cameo.

There were a couple of late previews for last week’s “Baby.”

Despite a sports preemption in a major market (Chicago), the show rose again to a respectable 0.8/2 in the A18-49 demo and 2.04 million in audience in the finals. And again, it was third for the week on the CW in both categories, behind The Flash and immediately Arrow. Not bad for a holiday week.

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.
