The CW’s Supernatural Hibbing 911 TV Show Review. Supernatural: Season 10, Episode 8: Hibbing 911 featured the return of two fantastic females. I was really looking forward to this week’s Supernatural episode. I mean, Donna Hanscum (Briana Buckmaster) and Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) working together and kicking some monster butt? That sounds awesome! Except this episode was anything but.
Unfortunately, while Jody and Donna were great to watch together, the monster of the week was a little…underwhelming.
The beginning of the episode definitely got my hopes up, what with the imagery of the blood-graffiti and a body stripped of flesh like we haven’t seen before on the show. I thought we were in for a crazy episode of some badass Supernatural ladies taking on a never-before-seen creature.
Of course, I was disappointed. There was so much slow buildup to the actual monster-confrontation scene that, when we finally got there, it was over in the blink of an eye. Not to mention that, as far as vampires go, these were probably the weakest and easiest to kill that we’ve seen on the show.
Now don’t get me wrong, the episode had some fantastic moments. Jody and Donna’s interactions were hilarious, considering that the two are, on many levels, polar opposites. We also got some great reactions to men looking down on women, including Jody’s applause worthy takedown of Doug-the-dick. The characters in and of themselves were (and are) amazing; I just wish that they had gotten to see some real action.
The Winchesters’ roles in this episode were also a bit odd, as it seemed to struggle with being mainly about the two women, while still incorporating our main characters. Still, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), like our lady cops, did have some good moments – the most important being their typical Supernatural brotherly heart to heart in/on/around the Impala. Dean saying that he felt like himself again may have been a relief for Sam, but I get the distinct feeling that this is just the calm before the storm. With the next episode being the mid-season finale, and the show being what it is, you just know that next week’s episode is going to be insane.
I’m definitely not ready for whatever cliffhanger Supernatural has in store for us next. Are you?
