Matt's Weekend Picks: May 20-22

Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles

Supernatural (Friday, 8/7c, The CW)

The good news is that fans don't have to sweat this cult show's future. It has been picked up for a seventh season. The bad news: Sam's life becomes a living (and possibly literal) hell in the second of two back-to-back episodes constituting the season finale. Series creator Eric Kripke wrote the final hour, during which the wall in Sam's head cloaking his bad memories finally collapses, and the poor boy is none the better for the experience. While Dean and Bobby feel helpless as Sam breaks, the battle for heaven reaches a turning point...

Got any scoop on Desperate Housewives? — Sara
NATALIE:
Poor Paul Young. Both of his wives have killed themselves — not a very good track record! — and now somebody's trying to kill him. Again. This time, the culprit is a bit more sly. I'm hearing he or she will slip some anti-freeze into Paul's dinner. If you've already put together that this will coincide with the return of Felicia Tilman, bravo.

I love that Brendan Hines is going to stir up jealousy on Castle. What else can you tell me? — Monica
ADAM:
While Castle is plenty peeved by the easy rapport his protégé establishes with Beckett, his remedy is to kill the young pup with... read more

Question:
Hoping you might have some thoughts on Supernatural this season. Like a lot of fans, I've been seriously disappointed by the fact my favorite show seems to be floundering without Eric Kripke at the helm. I'm finding season 6 to be an incohesive mess, with little apparent "through line" when it comes to plot and characterization, and disappointing underuse of both Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins. I'd love to know how you see things, and what your thoughts are for the show moving forward to a seventh season? As you know, the Supernatural fandom is very active online, and I'm getting the distinct impression from go-to fan forums that a good proportion of the fandom is underwhelmed by season 6, and have either jumped ship or plan to if things don't look up after the show starts airing again. — Kate

Matt Roush:
I gather you weren't part of the crowd at Sunday's PaleyFest lovefest in L.A., huh? These are almost fighting words when you consider how passionate the fan base for Supernatural is. I can't speak for any fan consensus, because I rarely seek out those forums so as to keep my own perspective untainted. But I'm not surprised to hear this season has been a letdown to many — although it doesn't get better than the recent "meta" episode, which I enjoyed greatly, in part as a commentary on doing a "season 6" when the fifth season was for so long regarded as the show's likely endgame... read more
