Supernatural (Thursday nights, 8pm, CW)
By Paula R. Stiles

Check out my Patreon page. Help me keep this column going, pay Heather, and start doing Supernatural reviews again.

This article claims you can watch new episodes live on the CW app now, so I will try that tonight. My live recap for episode 2 is up.

Season 13 titles so far: “Lost and Found” (13.01), synopsis and photos, promo, preview, sneak peeks, and Shaving People, Punting Things, as well as live recap and review; “The Rising Son” (13.02) synopsis and photos and promo; “Patience” (the first spinoff set-up episode) (13.03) synopsis; “The Big Empty” (13.04) synopsis; “Advanced Thanatology” (13.05) synopsis; “Tombstone” (13.06); “War of the Worlds” (13.07); “The Scorpion and the Frog” (13.08); “The Bad Place” (13.09) (probably December 7); Christmas Break; “Wayward Sisters” (13.10, backdoor pilot for the spinoff); “The Midnight Train” (13.11); “Various and Sundry Villains” (13.12); “Breakdown” (13.13); “Devil’s Bargain” (13.14); “Only the Best Intentions” (13.15); “ScoobyNatural” (13.16, cartoon episode, appears in March).

A TV Line interview with Alexander Calvert discussed Jack’s touchy relationship with a “volatile” Dean. He talked more generally about the character with Variety.

According to Brad Buckner, half of the dreaded Nepotism Duo, Sam’s storyline this first half of the season will involve training Jack in his powers. Yay.

Buckner also shared some rather underwhelming tidbits about the upcoming Scooby-Doo episode.

The synopsis for “Advanced Thanatology” (13.05) is up:

“Advanced Thanatology” – (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, LV) (HDTV)

BILLIE RETURNS … BUT NOT LIKE BEFORE – While working on a case involving the ghost of a demented doctor, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) get assistance from an unexpected source – Billie (guest star Lisa Berry). Castiel (Misha Collins) finds his way back to the Winchesters. John Showalter directed the episode written by Steve Yockey (#1305). Original airdate 11/9/2017.

As if that weren’t enough major character-return spoilage, Robert Singer also confirmed the rumor that Rowena will be back in at least one standalone episode, though he didn’t say how or in what form.

This Bustle article talks about the pranks currently going on on-set with the introduction of new cast.

Warner Bros has announced details about the upcoming Wayward Sisters spin-off. As we already know, it will star Kim Rhodes (Jody Mills) and the rumor that Briana Buckmaster (Donna Hanscum) is in it was confirmed. Also starring will be Kathryn Newton (Claire Novak) and Alex Jones (Katherine Ramdeen), as well as new character Patience Turner (played by Clark Backo). Another new character, Kaia (Yadira Guevar-Prip), has been added to the main cast list. Kaia’s “gift” will be the ability to spirit travel.

The spin-off premise and new characters will be introduced via several episodes in season 13. Patience will be introduced in “Patience” (13.03), which also brings back season one character Missouri Moseley (who is Patience’s estranged grandmother and from whom Patience has inherited her psychic gift). The actual backdoor pilot will be “Wayward Sisters” (13.10).

Season 12 is out on Amazon.

The count for Supernatural calendars for 2018 is now four: a charity calendar called If I Could Tell You: The Women of Supernatural, taking orders now, two large calendars out on July 1, and two mini calendars on September 1.

The show rose to second place on the network last week by maintaining a 0.7/3 and dropping slightly in audience to 1.90 million.
