Trouble with vampires, Dean to the rescue!
Supernatural (8:5) seems to be getting back on track after last night’s episode as Benny (Ty Olsson) reappeared and asked Dean (Jensen Ackles) for a personal favor. Turns out, Benny is part of a nest lead by his jealous maker who turned his human lover Andrea (Athena Karkanis) after he ran off from their unique way of hunting humans via boats out at sea. Sam and Amelia’s (Liane Balaban) rocky start was further revealed as the younger brother began to think about her. It’s good to see the season pick up once again–very good.
Benny is actually a humane vampire, living off of blood transfusions sold through the black market. He also saved Castiel (Misha Collins) from a Leviathan attack in Purgatory, giving him major bonus points in my book. After meeting Andrea, he began to see something in humanity and decided not to kill humans for nourishment. However, his maker was adamant in keeping the nest away from the outside world and felt it was best to kill him and turn his lover to keep as a memento of his existence. To say his maker is a cold bastard is more than generous.
However, Benny comes to see that Andrea is no longer human and hence what he loved about her had disappeared. She was like his maker now, and wanted to continue feeding on people via the high seas (or as Dean cleverly put it, “vampirates”). Upon examination of last night’s episode, Benny and Sam aren’t so different–they both turned away from the “family business.” Of course, now since Sam has finally met Benny and sees that he is a vampire, he doesn’t like him. Dean’s vampire friend finally showing up into the picture could further the already existing rift between the brothers. But since he seems to have something in common with them (and frankly doesn’t seem to be such a bad guy), he could prove useful to their great task for the season.
But first, they need to find out where the hell Kevin (Osiric Chau) is.
