Supernatural Season 7: ‘Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magic Menagerie’ Spoilers Discussion

supernatural season 7 plucky Supernatural Season 7: Plucky Pennywhistles Magic Menagerie Spoilers Discussion

After dealing with some Amazon Warriors, it’s time for Supernatural to bring the Winchester brother’s back to their home state of Kansas, where fans know that Sam and Dean are going to have to deal with their lingering issues from childhood. But have the duo finally met their match when Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magic Menagerie makes their childhood fears a reality?

Well, for one of the Winchester brothers, at least. With Dean facing monsters from a very young age, the only fear the elder Winchester has now is that his favorite adult websites will shut down. Luckily (or unluckily), Sam still holds on to one from his younger days: Clowns!

When a string of murders lead Sam and Dean to Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magic Menagerie, a local pizza chain that hosts children’s birthday parties, the Winchester brothers find out that the children who visit the magic menagerie have been asked to draw a picture of their greatest fear.

If drawing a picture of their greatest fear isn’t enough to sour any type of birthday festivity, the resulting deaths of their parents from the manifestation of their fear will surely turn an entire town of children off of pizza forever.

But when Sam and Dean must split up in order to take out the man behind the magic at Plucky Pennywhistle’s, will Sam be able to conquer his childhood fear alone? And how will this reminiscing adventure affect the duo as they prepare to take on an old foe next week?

  1. You’ve gotta love it when supernatural pulls off the most unexpected. this week was a hit.

    • Agreed. i love this show. i was kinda mad when cas died and they started the moster of the week episodes but since i know hes coming back i can enjoy the filler episodes more. either way im a die hard fan and wouldnt stop watching no matter who got killed off.

  2. It was ok, but not quite as funny as some other shows they’ve done something like this…The two favorites were when they were stuck going through a series of sitcoms and soaps as charactors in a fantasy world….And of course the cream was when they went to another deminsion where their life was Supernatural—The series and they basically made fun of themselves and the producer….That’s got to be the all time funniest show they ever did as far as I’m concerned.

    As for this…I have to admit that Sam being attacked by a couple of creepy clowns who just kept laughing all the time was funny, but the writers really didn’t put many funny lines in to ramp things up some…

  3. this episode and this series in general has been poor at best, feels like i’ve seen it all before and its startin to get boring, unlike Fringe.

  4. Bound to happen after so many years……After fighting off the devil….There’s not much to follow up with

  5. I loved the episode. I am ready for them to get back to this season’s main plotlines though.

  6. Using kids fears as a murder weapon was something that I wasn’t expecting. But the creepy clowns, unicorn, and octovamp weren’t enough for me. I wanted to see the giant robot. I’m hoping they get back to the main story for the season soon.

  7. you ever notice how fringe fans are always haters and putting down others shows?well i have,case in point the above poster,I think it’s the jealousy in knowing fringe will very likely be canceled before Supernatural

    I gave fringe a shot myself(even though fringe fans gave me an initial negative stance towards the show)I just could not get interested in it,I was just not entertained and flat out bored…now this is an honest opinion not meant to put anyone down or trash their show.

    Not that I in particular actually care but I’d thought i’d mention fringe fan behavior…good luck to fringe regardless

    Back to SPN,Personally I think the loss of bobby is way more important than cas and don’t see why people care so much for him,even if think bobby is important,if the writers want to forward i’m fine with it.

    Speaking of good episodes,I enjoyed that sword in the stone one,when they play that track and dean falls on his ass was hilarious

    • First off, your comment irked me and not just because you are calling attention to my post directly above yours and I didn’t even mention Fringe (I realize you were aiming your post towards @harry dean stanton). I am a fan of both shows and have opinions about both. I’ve been a fan of Supernatural longer (7 seasons vs. 4 seasons)…about 3 seasons longer if my math is correct. And, I adore the characters of Sam and Dean. They are the reason I tune in each week. I enjoy the monster of week episodes as well. I have no problem with either Cas or Bobby dying because so many characters have been killed through the course of this series (it did seem odd to kill both off within the first half of a season though). This story is about the Winchesters and the Impala (which I miss). My issue with Supernatural lately is that they are in a holding pattern. Remember when they went after the yellow-eyed demon, each week brought them closer to their goal of finding the Colt so that they could smite that demon with furious vengeance. Each season after, built up to the next. Each episode kept us watching. So now, 7 seasons in, we have these unstoppable creatures, the Leviathans. And how do they deal with them? They have some random guy keeping surveillance and call him once per episode while they deal with a couple of vetalas, the God of time, Amazon warrior chicks, and a Chuck-E-Cheese employee with voodoo power. While the last 4 episodes have been interesting monster of the weeks, they haven’t progressed the main story-line. At least when they searched for the Colt, the search brought them to the monsters of the week. Whereas, Fringe’s main story has seemingly gotten so complex that I have no idea where the writers are going with the plot as each episode progresses which piqued my intrigue and keeps me tuning in. They have their case of the week, but along the way something is revealed to keep the season-long story-arc going. My complaint with Fringe is that it’s starting to feel like LOST and that they are trying to do too much, but I’ll wait to see how this season finishes before I get too worried. I’m not a hater. I’m an avid viewer of both shows and will continue to be one until their final episodes (most likely)…but I’d really like Supernatural to get back to the storytelling that got me to fall in love with it. I apologize for my lengthy rant, I needed to vent my frustration about this show.

  8. GUYS !!!
    HAVENT YOU HEARD, BOBBY @ CASS WILL BE BACK IN THE NEXT 2 TO 4 EPISODES.
    THE FEMALE WRITER @ ERIK KRIPKE, ROBERT SINGER SAID SO LAST MONTH AT COMIC-CON. WE JUST HAVE TO WAIT. AND, AND, IF THEY WOULD PUT THIS SHOW ON ANY OTHER NITE BESIDES FRIDY, THE RATINGS SHOULD GO BACK TO 3 -4 MILLION LIKE THEY HAD CONSISENTLY B4 THEY (CW) KEPT ON SHUFFLING THEM AROUND. TUESDAYS SHOWINGS OF SPN WERE VERY GOOD FOR A 4TH RATED NETWORK AND ALMOST BEAT SMALLVILLES TOTAL, BUT WERE A VERY CLOSE SECOND. THEN SPN WENT TO THURSDAYS AND LOST A LITTLE MORE. BUT ON FRIDAYS, C’MON, NOBODY STAYS HOME ON THIS NIGHT FOR ANY SHOW, SO PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOE CAUSE OF THE MEASLY 1.8 MIL. FANS THAT ARE KEEPING UP W/SPN. MOVE IT BACK TO TUES/THURS. AND IT SHOULD RISE IN VIEWERSHIP-ARE /IS THE CW READING THIS. THIS IS THE CW’S BEST HOUR LONG AND BEST WRITTEN SHOW. ONE THING THOUGH, GOTTA START PLAYING THOSE OLD FAVORITES HIT SONGS FROM THE 70′S @ 80′S AT THE END OF THE EPISODES, OUR FAMILY REALLY MISS THAT PART OF IT, IT’S A NICE TOUCH, NOW !! CARRY ON MY WAYWARD SON….

  9. I don’t know why you all are comparing Fringe to Supernatural, one is like the new incarnation of The X-Files, and the other is like a more grown-up Scooby-Doo.

    I’m a fan of both, don’t see why there needs to be a comparison. They are nothing alike.
