Anyone heard about this new CW show before?

"“Searchers” hails from some of the CW’s most trusted creators: “The 100’s” Jason Rothenberg and super-producers Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. Created by Rothenberg, the trio will executive produce. Warner Bros. Television is the studio, along with Berlanti Productions.

“Searchers” is about a group of unlikely heroes who find themselves on the journey of a lifetime. Ten years after the death of their parents, a pragmatic brother and free spirited sister are forced to team up when they learn that their mother’s terrifying and bizarre stories may be a road map to discovering the great legends, myths, and unexplainable mysteries of the world."


Why does it sound familiar ... hmmmmm ...

I feel like Mary is trying to sniff out info from the British MoL by pretending to be interested in joining forces... Also, feels like there will be hell to pay when the Winchesters find out about all the people and monsters that "Cleaner" has been killing.

Also... Castiel. I can't figure him out anymore. Where did his powers go? Made sense when he didn't have his grace... that he was weaker... BUT he got his grace back AND Chuck/God healed him at the end of last year... so... why couldn't Castiel find the boys? That secret government compound wasn't warded against demons or angels... so some of that seemed weird to me. They really need to explain better in-show why Castiel can't do hardly anything anymore.

Oh... and another Reaper bites it... that has to become a problem at some point... Billie gave the boys a pass for offing Death... but it seems like at some point they ought to be setting up a Reaper war or something... because you shouldn't be messing with death, right?

Also... I liked the Fringe-esque magic typewriter.

I was going to ask the same thing about Castiel. Is he recovering from something?

I want Tessa back. And I think they'll find a way to bring Death back. I mean, how can you kill Death? He and Dean have had some great scenes together. "Have some pizza. It's delicious."

I fell off the couch during the typewriter scene. An ode to a great show. I miss Fringe. It's my go to (along with West Wing) when I need something familiar to watch.

Death is treated like the Rodney Dangerfield character of this show.

They technically, vaguely, referred to Castiel's weakness this episode... so I guess they are listening. Basically it was a throwaway line about how much slower it is to travel with your "wings clipped." I guess that's a thing... but they've never really explained it as such. Unless somehow all the angels are weaker somehow? But apparently Lucifer wasn't... I mean aside from burning out his hosts like he always did... he didn't otherwise seem to be any weaker.

IF there's some kind of permanent de-powering since the "fall" they haven't really explained that as such. I always took it that when Metatron forced all the Angels out of Heaven that he made them human and locked them out of Heaven... but when they broke Heaven open again, and the Angels were allowed back... I assumed it was status quo again because they never explicitly said there was a permanent depowering of All "cast out" Angels. IF so... then, that also doesn't explain why Lucifer still has all his powers... because he was literally THE fallen angel originally... so it seems like IF that process does permanent de-powering, that it didn't affect him.

Anyway... trying not to overthink it... but really wish they would formally explain it somehow.

If they did, in three episodes they would just renege on it for "plot" purposes anyway.

Seems like cartridges for the Colt used to be a lot harder to make/come-by... Heck, the Magic McGuffin spell even put the etchings on it for them.

The Alpha Vamp said that the Colt couldn't kill him. My recollection is that the Colt couldn't kill the 4 Horsemen and Lucifer. Guess the old fang was wrong.

I thought the lore about vampires was that is you killed a vamp, all of his "children" would die. So if the Alpha was killed, wouldn't all vamps die? Just wondering...

I forget when... but back when they first had the Colt, they used all the bullets it came with... then there was a point where they discovered how to make bullets. I forget what exactly happened in that episode... but basically they learned how to make bullets for the Colt. Then, the Colt disappeared. I actually can't remember exactly when that happened. Seemed like they didn't care too much, even though it is a really powerful thing to have around... even if it can't kill some of the worst stuff, it still kills most things.

I was surprised they didn't let Mom know this was old hat for them, that they had the Colt a lot over the years and had outgrown it But I guess Sam knowing how to make bullets was meant to bridge that gap.

I always understood the "there are five things in all of creation the Colt can't kill" line from Lucifer to be more loosely interpreted than that. For example, it makes no sense for it to kill Michael, but not Lucifer... or any other Archangel for that matter... so adding those plus the four horsemen gets you well past 5 right there. Also, doesn't make sense for the Colt to be able to kill God or Amara either if it can't kill Archangels...

So, like others, I assumed the "five things" wasn't meant to specific characters but rather types... so

1. Archangels
2. Horsemen
3. Gods

What's left? I can't remember if they tried it on Leviathan or not... so Leviathan could be another. I'm also thinking it must not kill Knights of Hell (like Abadon) otherwise they would have used the Colt instead of going for the Mark of Cain and the jawbone...

So that could mean:

4. Leviathan
5. Knights of Hell

That might be it... Unsure, since it isn't really specified in-canon, though... outside of definitely not killing Lucifer, since they tried that.

I thought about this too. It sure does seem like killing Alpha should cause all others to revert... but then they have gotten the lore wrong sometimes... This one bears some thinking though.

I had looked it up on one of the wikis. It was Ruby who helped Bobby figure out how to make more when they were dealing with one of Lilith's followers making witches.


I thought they debunked that kill the maker vampire thing in one of the really early ones. Wasn't it that they could only come back before sunset and/or drinking blood the first time or something.

A cure for vampirism exists, but only if the vampire has not yet drunk human blood. They need to drink a mixture that includes the blood of the vampire that turned them.

At least one cured vampire has retained all of his memories before he was reverted to humanity. However, the cure causes you to be sick for a few days. The cure does not require the vampire that turned the person to be alive for it to work.

Yeah, I remembered the vampire cure... but I couldn't remember if they had debunked that bit in the lore about killing the siring vampire. But that makes sense, because otherwise that cure wouldn't make sense... because you'd just kill that vampire instead of trying to get his blood for a ritual to cure someone.

Thus, no cure for people once they drink human blood... though, clearly there also are different degrees of evil in vampires since we have seen more than one vampire who even though they have fed on humans, they don't seem evil. Dean's friend (forget his name... Benny maybe?) and a few random others over time.

I was thinking it was Ruby on the bullets, too... but couldn't remember 100%. She's the one that gave Sam the demon-killing knife too, right? So that makes sense.

At least Supernatural is triggering some conversation again! If they could only bring Bobbie back.
