Supernatural Advance Review: Episode 6.12 "Like a Virgin"

It’s been an incredibly long hellatus for us poor Supernatural fans.  Fortunately, I was lucky enough to get an advanced look at the new episode that will be airing on January 28.  I can’t tell you a lot about the episode under pain of death, but there are a few things I can tease for you.

The first is that the sneak peek released by The CW (watch it here) confirms that Sam’s soul has been returned.  But what’s the state of it?  That’s where the pain of death rears its ugly head.  I can’t tell you the answer, but I can tell you that you will most definitely have a newfound appreciation for how Jared Padalecki played Sam in the first half of season 6.  The subtleties in his character go right back to the first moment we saw him in the season premiere.

And, oh, the comedy!  I’ll admit, despite the insanely hilarious episode "Clap Your Hands If You Believe", the first half of season 6 has been rather light on the combination of drama and physical comedy that Supernatural blends together so effectively.  But this episode has it in spades, coupled with a lot of terrific one-liners and snappy comebacks (with a Comic Con reference!),  and a scene with Dean that will make you laugh out loud.
