SUPERNATURAL — (9:00–10:00 p.m. ET)“The Great Escapist” (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)FEELING LUCKY TONIGHT? — When Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) receivea distressing video message from Kevin Tran (guest star Osric Chau), they set about trying touncover the Third Trial. The boys make a discovery that sends them to a casino in Colorado, to finda mysterious recluse (guest star Curtis Armstrong) who may be able to fill in the holes in Kevin’sresearch. Meanwhile, Crowley (guest star Mark Sheppard) is on a winning streak. Castiel (MishaCollins) tries to elude Naomi (guest star Amanda Tapping) and the angels hunting him. RobertDuncan McNeill directed the episode written by Ben Edlund (#821).
Looks like things will be heating up as we get nearer to the season finale (big surprise, right?). This one looks like half filler, half action–let’s just hope that Dean shows better gambling skills than when he gambled his life away, or has the foresight to let Sam handle this one. Though chances are, that’s not likely.
