For better or for worse, Supernatural: Bloodlines is finally here. Set in Chicago, the potential spin-off features fledgling hunter Ennis (Lucien Laviscount), who discovers Chicago is run by five Mafioso monster families, including shape-shifters David (Nathaniel Buzolic) and Margo Hayden (Danielle Savre) and werewolves Julian (Sean Faris) and Violet Durant (Melissa Roxburgh).
But how will Bloodlines compare to Supernatural? Read on for seven things to expect from the anticipated pilot:
The first trailer for the Supernatural spin-off pilot Bloodlines is here, and it looks pretty darn awesome!
The pilot, which will air as a Supernatural episode next Tuesday, features the Winchester boys (Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles) traveling to Chicago where they run into a police academy trainee, Ennis, whose fiancé becomes collateral damage of a monster war.
Don't get me wrong, I love Supernatural. But sometimes I think the show has pushed its luck as far as it can go.
Most series have a hard time sustaining a high level of quality for more than three seasons, but Supernatural (Tuesdays, 9/8c, The CW) is closing in on double digits now. I have no doubt Jeremy Carver will...
The Supernatural spin-off Tribes has me nervous.
The main attraction to the series has always been the relationship between Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles). But the chemistry between Padalecki and Ackles will be impossible to replicate, so I applaud Tribes' decision to not even try. By making the spin-off an ensemble cast, featuring both human and monster leads, it sets itself apart from its predecessor. Yet when it comes to female characters, I worry it's not going to be different enough.
Let's not sugarcoat it: Things on Supernatural are a mess right now. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have split up, there are no more prophets coming to lend a hand, and Earth is caught in the middle of full-on wars for control over Heaven and Hell.
Maybe it's time for some divine help.
During his time masquerading as The Prophet, Chuck (né God) rewarded those who had the bravery to defy his plan (Team Free Will FTW!). But he wasn't above stepping in to save his favorite creations when the situation got too dire, either. Yet as the lines between Heaven, Hell and Earth continue to blur, God is nowhere to be seen and rarely even discussed. So what's the deal?
