After the way last week’s episode of Supernatural ended with Jensen breaking my heart simply with Dean’s facial expressions, I’m ready for a fun episode this Wednesday.
Or at least I’m hoping “Beyond the Mat” is actually fun and isn’t one of those episodes that appears that way until the last few minutes where the writers deviously throw in a sneak attack and rip our hearts out of our chests. We should probably expect that by now.
The episode centers around Sam and Dean attending the funeral of a wrestler they used to be fans of when they were kids. Using this time to also take a break from the major stress that is the Darkness, they then go to the next wrestling match to relive a fond childhood memory. But when another wrestler winds up dead the Winchesters are called to duty. (There’s also some Crowley and, if the gravelly voice is any indication, hopefully Castiel too as shown in the preview)
Seeing the boys this happy and excited in the promo photos is amazing and I’m going to hold onto that as long as I can before that’s all destroyed by whatever lies in wait the rest of the season with the Darkness.
WWE wrestler Mike “The Miz” Mizanin also guest stars in “Beyond the Mat” as Shawn Harley, a fiery-tempered wrestler who easily pushes everyone’s buttons. Not much of a stretch for The Miz if you know his personality in the WWE.
Until next time SPN Family, check out the preview for this Wednesday’s new episode of Supernatural below and let me know some of your predictions for the rest of Season 11!
