As the Season Goes On: Supernatural Season 3

Howdy all for Day 3 of As the Season Goes On. Well this particular series I have been laxed in and for that again I apologize. Not that I like the love of the show, it hasn't been on my radar for a while and I have mostly focused on movies. I refer to the brothers Winchester and I have not covered anything since they did battle with the demon Azazel, the yellow eyed demon that set the boys and their father on their demon hunting path. The crucible that ignited their crusade. This is Supernatural Season 3.

Psst, Dean. Don't drop the soap.

Cruising around America in their dad's 1967 Chevy Impala and using his journal on creatures that go bump in the night, Sam (Jared Padalecki of Gilmore Girls, Supernatural, House of Wax, Friday the 13th and Supernatural: The Animation) and Dean (Jensen Ackles of Dark Angel, Dawson's Creek, Smallville, My Bloody Valentine, Batman: Under the Red Hood and Supernatural: The Animation) Winchester are back on the road, finding evil and giving it a serious ass whipping. Tracking down the demons that were released from Hell from last season. Throughout the season the befriend a demon name of Ruby (Katie Cassidy of 7th Heaven, Taken. Supernatural, Harper's Island, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Gossip Girl and Arrow) who claims she has some wiggle room for Dean who sold his soul to bring Sam back to life.

The boys have kicked over a hornet's nest and need a bit of help from their father's friend, expert creature slayer and madcap researcher Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver of Day Break, John of Cincinnati, Harper's Island, Justified, NCIS and Supernatural) to bounce ideas, hang out and watch each others backs. With Ruby's assistance, she speaks with Sam on stopping Lilith (Sierra McCormick of Land of the Lost, Ramona and Beezus, A Nanny for Christmas and A.N.T. Farm) from unleashing Hell on Earth. Dean feels the best source of info is a retired hunter named Rufus (Steven Williams of The Blues Brothers, 21 Jump Street, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday, L.A. Heat, Stargate SG-1, Richard III and 22 Jump Street) in best dealing these creatures. The guys are up into their eyeballs in malefic creatures as they chase the personifications of the Seven Deadly Sins.

A hot, blonde demoness? Yeah, that can't be trouble.

With demons, werewolves, changelings and creatures of fae running amok, the guys are dealing with the secrets each of them keep from one another, the loss of their father and the struggles against the forces of darkness. They also run into Bela Talbot (Lauren Cohan of Casanova, Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj, Death Race 2 and The Walking Dead), a collector of magically imbued artifacts for profit or her own means but she and the boys do not see eye to eye with her means and results.

Will the boys manage to keep things on this blue and green marble status quo? Will Hell rule the Earth?

A few comments on the season now.

This season introduces what will later become an addition to the series the Ghostfacers. Extremely unstable vampire hunter Gordon Walker (Sterling K Brown) reprises his role and Jeffrey Dean Morgan appears as John in a dream sequence. This season was cut short 6 episodes due to the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike so we missed out on the return of Ellen Harvelle (Samantha Ferris) so thanks for that, guys.

Ackles auditions for Phantasm??
