Supernatural Season 8 Review “Taxi Driver” – Time for a Family Reunion

In this episode of Supernatural, called "Taxi Driver," Sam takes on the next Trial and has to go after an old friend who’s trapped in Hell. While there, he gets into trouble and needs help from another old friend. This episode was kind of a family reunion. In order to completely his next Trial, Sam has to go down to Hell (with a layover in Purgatory) to get a soul that doesn’t belong there. I doubt there was a single person in the fandom who was surprised to see that it was Bobby who needed saving, but it was still a great way to get him back on the show. I know a lot of fans were saying that bringing Bobby back would cheapen his death and I sort of felt that way, too. But this was perfect; we got to see Bobby again but he still had the hero’s death (and trip to Heaven) that he deserved. I also like that he was still as ornery as ever and got to kick some demon ass before his trip upstairs. This being Supernatural – plus the fact that Bobby made it very clear that he would love to come back down if Sam and Dean could ever find a way to spring him – I think we could see him again someday, even if it’s just for a quick adventure.
