Supernatural Season 5 Returns This Thursday With "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid"

Finally! The Winchester boys are back to their evil-busting ways after a 6-week hellish hiatus with a brand-new Supernatural episode titled "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid." Since it starts at 9/8c on the CW right after a brand-new Vampire Diaries, it's a long-anticipated double-premiere night that's not likely to disappoint!

Last time we saw the brothers, it was just before Valentine's Day in the not-so-coincidentally titled episode "My Bloody Valentine." Cupid's marks have the townspeople killing each other in the name of love (or so they think) -- more specifically eating one another, which just may make the list of gnarliest deaths in Supernatural history (is there really any other way to describe it?). In one of the most emotionally draining episodes thus far, it is eventually revealed that there's another source of evil behind these grotesque and deadly acts of love: Famine, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. While Cupid is then proved to be more innocent than they had originally expected, Sam and Dean learn valuable mythology regarding their own lineage before Cupid is sent on his diaper-wearing way and the brothers set their sights on facing Famine head-on.

With Sam once again jonesin' for demon blood (and spending some quality time in the panic room) and Dean dealing with his own emotional "demons," it was hard not to feel completely exhausted just from watching it! Luckily (or not so much), we've had plenty of time to recuperate from that doozie for this week's return!

This Thursday in "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid," Sam and Dean enlist Bobby's help when they catch wind that the dead are rising from their graves in Bobby's hometown. While at first these zombies don't seem to be causing any harm by simply reuniting with their families, the undead reunions inevitably take a turn for the ugly! Check out the newest episode this Thursday on the CW, and if you missed the last episode or just want a quick refresher, watch it here!

This has to be one of the best episodes yet! Zombies, blood, pain and suffering. Just how we like it boys. although Sams' question at the end to Bobby was disappointing. Nobody is alright after that and its like he's a kid again, maybe makes the character show his vunerability but I thought it was disappointing. Can't wait for next week!! thanks sidereel :-)

This episode was pretty boring. Bobby wasn't his awesome sarcastic self, the boys were just going through the motions, and as for the zombies... well, I've just never understood the appeal of zombies outside of comedies. Karen Singer was likeable, but kind of surreal with the yellow dress and the baking and the never sharing a scene with Bobby until... uh, y'know. Very much underused as a character, I thought.
Best thing about this ep was the sheriff. She was cool. I'd like to see more of her. She'd make a good hunter, I think. And with the, uh, recent events in her life, might well feel motivated to do just that. It's about time for a new addition to the show, character wise.
