In this week’s episode of Supernatural, “Mannequin 3: Reckoning,” Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are going to take on the famed Andrew McCarthy role of Jonathan Switcher.

Unfortunately, with the previous two Mannequin films using up all the world’s cursed Egyptian princesses and enchanted peasant girls, Supernatural is left with the bottom of the paranormal barrel for their mannequin inhabitant.

When a vengeful ghost goes after the men who murdered her, this paranormal entity decides to pass on the typical human possession and chooses something flashy, unique and, well, 80s. With the look of Kim Cattrall’s “Emmy” and the murderous mindset of Chucky, this ghost sets out to prove that the Mannequin’s opening theme song, “In My Wildest Dreams” by Belinda Carlisle, has a bloodier meaning.

“Mannequin 3: Reckoning” Episode Description:

Ben (guest star Nicolas Elia) calls Dean (Jensen Ackles) and tells him Lisa (guest star Cindy Sampson) is in trouble. Dean leaves Sam (Jared Padalecki) to investigate a case alone and rushes home to rescue Lisa, however, he’s not prepared for what meets him at the door. Meanwhile, Sam discovers the men that were murdered were all a part of a cruel practical joke played on a female co-worker who went missing. Jeannot Szwarc directed the episode written by Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder.

  1. hahah Deans car chasing him, now thats priceless

  2. Never thought I would say an episode of Supernatural sucked, until tonight because this episode sucked!

    • I almost felt the same way about it sucking but with the kindey and the brotherly love n the begening with sams hell flash… i still like the episode… wanna see a bad ep u shoukd watch the one when that boys ghost is trapped n the lake.. season 1 ep 3 i think… that ep sucks!!!

      • I have to kinda laugh at the irony of this comment. The episode I assume you’re talking about is “Dead underwater” Which, I agree was a very terrible episode, was written by the woman who took over Kripke’s role as head writer: Sera Gamble.

        Which definitely explains the decline of quality the show is coming up with this season.(Or atleast in my opinion) ;3

  3. Ended poorly but otherwise a solid monster-of-the-week episode, 8/10

  4. I don’t even understand how the script for this episode got approved and then aired, I really don’t. Supernatural is a quality show, it’s possibly my favorite of all time but this? I don’t see any resemblance to the writing and directing of previous episodes other than some of the more painful ones from the first season like Bugs. The highlight of the episode was Dean being chased by the Impala (that was funny) and the promo for what’s bound to be an epic hour written by Ben Edlund next week.

    If you haven’t watched this episode, skip it. It’s not worth viewing and personally I’m going to try to forget it even aired.

  5. This episode was pretty much horrible and pointless. I mean, the Mother of All Evil has been released out into the world and there’s a civil war going on in Heaven and the writing team wastes an episode of this already pretty much crappy season on a lame villain who has nothing to do with the main plot lines of this season.

    We’re three episodes past the midseason and the boys have done barely anything this season besides focusing on Sam’s issues, which were boring after atleast two episodes. I dread to think the writers are going to try to force in an epic battle against the Mother of All Monsters and the Heaven Civil war within the last three episodes of the season. They tried to do that last season and it ended dreadfully with the most underwhelming season finale I’d ever seen (especially since it was an Apocalypse storyline which should have been epic.)

    The only sorta redeemable thing about this episode is that it kinda puts closure on the horribly written Lisa/Dean storyline. The show’s given us no real bases to why Dean likes her as a person, thus making the whole Lisa/Dean montage in this episode stupid and honestly laughable; much like their relationship.

    But the chat with Ben and Dean leads me to think there’ll probably be more annoying Dean/Lisa&Ben stuff in the future, which is a super DNW for previously stated reasons. It’s been poorly handled. Sera Gamble stop beating the dead horse of a plotline and give Dean something important and relevant to do!

    All in all this episode was a wasteful filler, much like the last episode that pretty much just accomplished telling the fandom that Sam really does have a death penis (sleep with him and you’ll die).

    If the writing staff continues to throw out garbage like this, then this show will definitely be losing my support. :/

    • i agree with you 10000% on what you just said here

    • Seconded.
      However my support will always remain for Supernatural, I’m too much of a fan to ever give it up, but said support will definitely be far less enthusiastic.

      • I agree with you 789. I was sorely disappointed with this episode and I’m ready to move forward with the season and the real, underlying plotlines. I was happy to see them (hopefully) finish the Dean/Lisa storyline but the mannequins were just downright stupid.

  6. Wow. I do watch Supernatural from time to time. But, my respect for the show just skyrocketed. Mannequin 3: Reckoning! Greatest. Title. Ever.

  7. Possibly the worst written episode yet. Should’ve called it “UnNatural”

    • I agree

  8. Next week looks good

  9. Whilst watching this episode & it’s Ben & Lisa related issues I couldn’t help wondering what it is exactly that’s stopping Dean from going back to them now.
    For the first time in ages the Winchesters aren’t actually caught up in any major Supernatural shenaninigans that actually require their direct involvement.
    They averted the Apocolypse, they are no longer bound by the fact they were required as vessels by lucifer & michael.
    Neither of them is cursed or trapped in hell requiring saving.
    And finally, Sam has his soul back. Basically, they are not directly involved in any major goings on the way they have been in previous seasons. They don’t have any personal crusades or vendettas that require their particular attention.
    As far as they are concerned they are now hunting simply for the sake of it.
    I realise the whole ” Mother of all Evil” thing will soon come into play but at the moment the boys are only vaguely aware of what this might be & neither of them have any personal interest in it.
    If anything, Dean should be thinking that now is the best time to give up hunting & be with Lisa & Ben. Also, given the fragile state of Sams mind at the moment maybe it would be a good time for him to give up hunting to.
    I realise that if that did happen there wouldn’t be a show, but I just don’t think the boys have any real motivation to carry on hunting right now, other than the fact that hunting is all they know.

  10. Why… …why did this show entre its sixth season, is it only money that counts in the moviebuisness, has integrety no more values?

    Ive seen shows with more potential go down the crapper, then they serve us crap as it would be filet mignon.

    Lete take a gander; jericho, defying gravity, sg:U all cancelled

    And a show that was brought to an exclusive conclusion (a Brother sacrifying himself for mankind and brother) had to be digged out of the ground and milked to its bloody bone. WHATS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE!!!

    I am not saying that i dont enjoy supernatural, but come on… …five, sixth seasons is enough to tell any story, beating the cow doesnt produce more milk.
    If you dont believe me Think of battlestar gallactica, b5, sex in the city… …you see no need to thin the drink so much out that you proclaim its still bourban, when in fact it is tap-water you drink…

    In short, give us something new, something we know theire will be an end to, and stop beating those cash crops to pieces…

  11. What the heck ? This was a brilliant episode. Back to its roots of ghosts etc. Whats wrong with you people who preferred to the idiotic French Mistake ? Are you SUPERNATURAL fans or LAUREL AND HARDY fans ?
