"Supernatural" Season 11 has so far completely revolved around Darkness and Castiel's curse, but that trend is going to change – if only for an episode -- with "Baby". As loyal fans of The CW show know, Baby, Dean's beloved Impala, is as much a character in "Supernatural" as Sam and Dean themselves, and with Season 11 Episode 4 we learn just how important she really is.
In "Swan Song", the Season 5 finale of "Supernatural", Chuck (Rob Benedict) says the story through the Impala, describing how important it has been to the Winchesters. Dean (Jensen Ackles) has also been quite vocal about it through the years and Sam (Jared Padalecki) has understood and respected the same.
However, for the first time in 11 years, we get to see how much time the brothers actually spend in the Impala. "Baby", which is shot completely inside the car, will see the Winchester brothers taking on a case like the old times, focusing on a particular monster rather than defeating an army of Angels, or demons or even the recently released Darkness.
The monster is unlike anything we have seen before, and we see Dean playing "name the monster", because the attacks point towards ghouls, werewolves and vampires. "Baby" also finds its place in the list of fun "Supernatural" episodes, with Dean and Sam laughing together and enjoying each other's company after a long time.
However, the fun times will not last too long, as Amara is growing at a very fast pace, and is hungry all the time. Crowley (Mark Sheppard) will soon be unable to control Amara and contain her powers, because as of "Bad Seed", she is already growing weary of being told what to do. She has a sinister tone when she states, "I said, I am hungry" at the end of Episode 3.
God is still in hiatus and he is probably the only person that can lock Darkness back in her prison. She knows that and has even sought protection from God to Crowley in the previous episode. We can hopefully see the return of Chuck as God in an upcoming episode of "Supernatural".
Watch Season 11 Episode 4 of "Supernatural" at 9.00 PM (EST) on Wednesday, 28 October. You can also live stream "Baby" via CWTV.
