Supernatural ‘Frontierland’ Images: Sam and Dean in the Old West

Published 4 years ago by , Updated September 18th, 2012 at 8:02 am,

Supernatural has just six episodes left in season six – one of the more surprisingly enjoyable seasons so far – which means a lot of loose ends need to be tied up in a very short period of time (not the least of which is the newly-introduced villain, Eve).

While the show officially returns to the air after a month-long hiatus on April 15th, today we have a number of photos from “Frontierland,” the episode that hits April 22nd – a time-traveling adventure that sends Sam and Dean Winchester back to the wild, wild west.

The last couple of episodes of Supernatural have, in my opinion, been a bit disappointing. Particularly “And Then There Were None,” an episode best described as a decaffeinated version of John Carpenter’s The Thing. Though there were some pretty major deaths in the episode, they all felt clumsily abrupt, unearned, and ultimately underwhelming. Hopefully, “Frontierland” is a return to form.

If you want some context, check out the episode’s summary below:

While searching for a way to defeat Eve, Dean stumbles upon Samuel Colt’s (guest star Sam Hennings) journal in the Campbell library. Realizing Samuel might have the answer to their problems, Sam and Dean ask Castiel to send them back in time so they can meet the man himself. While Sam is a bit reluctant to time travel, Dean is beside himself with excitement to return to the Wild, Wild West.

As an added bonus, we’ve included the TV promo for the rest of the season, which contains footage from “Frontierland”:

This isn’t the first time Sam and/or Dean have been sent back in time by angels. Previously, in the episode “In the Beginning,” Dean was sent to 1973 and interacted with his parents, his grandparents, and the yellow-eyed demon before they were dead. Then, in “The Song Remains the Same,” both Sam and Dean were sent back to 1978 by Castiel to stop the angel Anna from killing their parents.

This also isn’t the first time we’ve heard Samuel Colt’s name bandied about in the series. Colt – based on the historical figure of the same name – is the man who created the Colt that can kill almost anything (vampires, werewolves, demons, you name it). It’ll be interesting to finally see the guy we’ve heard so much about for the past six seasons.

Now, why in the world Samuel Colt would have any information pertaining to getting rid of Eve, a villain who has been completely absent in the world of Supernatural up until a few episodes ago, is anyone’s guess. I guess we’ll just have to wait until April 22nd to find out.

Supernatural airs Fridays @9pm, staring April 15th, on The CW.

  1. looks like another dull episode in a deeply disappointing season. If it werent for two or three stand out episodes then I would have given up altogether.

  2. This entire season has felt completely scattered to me. There seems to be no continuity whatsoever. While I’ve enjoyed a handful of the episodes, I’ve really been missing the solid plotline that the other seasons have had throughout.

    • Quite right. it seems there has been four or five arc plots running through this season, the writers have really let the show down this year, can’t blame the actors for anything as they have put in the same great performances, but the whole season has felt off.

  3. The problem with SUPERNATURAL season 6 overall is that it is trying to cram so many stories and emotional moments all at the same time. I only really liked them bringing in the Alpha’s and the Mother of All because it contributes to the central theme of SUPERNATURAL which is family. I also happened to like the Fairies episode also because showed the idea that science fiction was inspired out of fantasy lore. This season made sense having a Civil War between the Angels due to the post-apocalypse and also with Demons trying reign over each other and Crowley logically came out on top to be the king. Also Dean trying to cope with a Hunting and not hunting life went really well I thought because it shows how Dean has to become the “divorced” parent because Hunters don’t make good fathers. Souless Sam became a different Sam we have seen in the seasons and Jared does a great contrast in this season of how they are different.

    The problem with the season is the following: At the beginning of Season 6 it said “One Year Ago” and had a poor recap of Season 5. Not to mention the rock and roll music is very much missing that we get cheap cheesy rock. However, Aerosmith in Like A Virgin fit real well. Also introducing the Campbells was a very bad move for the show because it seemed like it was the only way they could bring in the logic into Sam returning was to have someone be his conscience. They got killed off too quickly and thus became undeveloped.

    In short this Season just feels like the lost levels of Mario so to speak, but I’m sure this finale will please fans a lot. I’m excited for this old west episode, because I love time traveling episodes. They bring in lore and those moments where everything makes sense.

    • It seems like they started off trying to wrap up all the loose ends and use all the left over ideas because Season 6 was going to be the end. Then maybe it wasn’t going to be the end and everyone is trying to make sense of the mess we have got now to justify another season. I’m not sure anyone is looking forward to a #7 if it’s more of the same. It is almost unwatchable now.

    • Samuel Campbell and Anthony Harvelle raised daughters so hunters can be good fathers.

      • Mary obviously wanted to rebel and run away with John than be with Samuel Campbell, its very clear she doesn’t like her father getting her into the business. Like Sam to his father. He went to college. Also Jo’s Dad died when she was really little she said, so she really didn’t get into the hunting business without her mother wanting to avenger her husband.

        This hunting business is not a way to live. Why else do you think we watch SUPERNATURAL? I mean sure we will never hunt the paranormal, but we watch SUPERNATURAL because of the powerful conflict and that’s why it established really well when Dean told Ben he can’t stick around with him and Lisa. Sure we watch the show for other reasons, pop culture references, Dean’s impala, the monsters and overall Sam and Dean. They are brothers, which is more enjoyable to watch than a father to a son, because eventually the son has to go on his own path, but with brothers its a more deeper boost than anything else.

  4. The only thing I wanna see in this episode is Sam & Dean giving Colt the Demon killing knife so he can use it to create the Demon killing Colt thus explaining how he was able to make it in the first place. That’s kind of clever stuff they used to do in this show & which has been sorely lacking in this season.

  5. Been waiting for this episode since the guys first talked about it at the San Francisco con. I am STOKED!
