For seven seasons Supernatural has been a show about two brothers on the road, hunting demons, ghosts, and monsters. They’ve been on their own most of the time, relying on the kindness of other hunters, and one very special angel, only when necessary. They’ve become used to doing their own thing and doing it their way.
But in “What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?” the Winchesters were tested not only by a new God and powerful forces with infinite wealth but one very bad-ass mama who wasn’t afraid to parent them, too.
Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) have been to hell, stared down the apocalypse, and dealt with endless death, but this was a tough new task for them. For the rest of us, though, it was just an enjoyable new challenge.
