What did you think of the premiere? ‘Supernatural’ Season 7 Premiere Review & Discussion

With the Supernatural season 7 premiere just over a week away, the familiar sounds of AC/DC’s anthem of “You Shook Me All Night Long” will soon be gracing our television screens accompanied by a flurry of scenes recapping what took place last season. Check out the photo gallery from the season premiere above.

Fortunately, fan anticipation can take a back seat for the time being, as The CW released 11 images from the highly-anticipated premiere – and, from the looks of it, it appears that while Castiel may have anointed himself as the new God, Sam and Dean are going to great lengths to make sure that Castiel’s promotion comes to an end.

With a bag full of fast food in hand, Death comes to visit the obviously worried Winchester brothers at the request of Dean. Unfortunately, Castiel seems to be one step ahead of everyone, and now Sam, Dean and Bobby not only have to deal with an angry Lord, but also an angry Death. That’s not exactly the position one would EVER want to be in.

You can read the description to the Supernatural season 7 premiere, entitled “Meet the New Boss” below:

Castiel doesn’t kill Sam, Dean and Bobby, but warns them not to interfere in his business. Assuming his new role as God, Castiel sets out to right some of the wrongs in the world. Dean decides they should find Death and order him to stop Castiel, but the former angel is one step ahead of them, leaving Dean to face a very angry Death. Meanwhile, Sam struggles to deal with the broken wall in his mind.

Now that Castiel has taken a proverbial turn for the worse and Sam has all of his memories flooding in from his time in Hell, the upcoming season of Supernatural already has a bevy of intriguing plots to focus on. With it being announced that Crowley is returning (along with several other familiar characters) and the knowledge that these story arcs cannot adequately fill a 22 episode season, one beings to wonder where the series will go from here.

Despite there being a few bumps in the road, Supernatural has largely been presented as a brilliant series that’s able to grow and evolve with each passing season. So, whatever may come after Castiel gets kicked from his throne, or when Sam finally deals with his hellish memories, one can at least breathe a sigh of relief in knowing that it will most certainly be handled with the same brilliance that most of the series has been.
