We are only at episode two and I already like this season more than the back half of last year. In "What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?", Sam and Dean got talked into rescuing Kevin’s mom from Crowley’s demon watchdogs and she ended up inviting herself along for the ride as they searched for the tablet.

It shouldn’t have been a surprise that Mrs. Tran (Friends and Futurama's Lauren Tom) turned out to be tougher than the boys expected; after all, Kevin was more resourceful than they thought he would be too. The reunion of mother and son was both heartfelt and comical. I loved that the touching moment when she first saw Kevin again, complete with swelling music, was interrupted by Sam and Dean tossing holy water on Mrs. Tran just to be sure she wasn’t possessed. Supernatural can do that joke as many times and they like and it is always good for a laugh. The tattoo scene was cute too, and it was refreshing that the Winchesters made that part of the rules for Mom to tag along. The most surprising part was that she talked her way into the Impala so quickly, but maybe it was for the best that the storyline kept moving instead of getting bogged down with more arguments.
