Could Amara really be conquered in season 11? Even though Emily Swallow’s portrayal of “The Darkness” as a sensual, destructive force does not appear in every episode of season 11, her performances are strong enough to sustain this arc throughout season 11. Supernatural often carries over the big bad from season to season. While all of the promotions for the final 4 episodes of the season seem to be leaning toward the Winchesters scoring a win if they find the correct combination of a chosen one and a weapon of God, there is no guarantee this arc will come to a climax this season. And while this arc speeds towards episode 23, the writers are about to introduce us to new character.
STOP here if you do not want spoiler information!!!!
Elizabeth Blackwell from another CW show( TVD) makes her appearance as an English lady who has much in common with Sam Winchester. Does she have several episodes in season 11 as an instrument in this darkness arc or is she just introduced early so she can be the season 12 challenge? Are we about to get a Sam centered story for season 12? What elements could she share with Sam?
- chosen by Azazel at 6 months
- demon blood
- belongs to a family of hunters
- looking for something more permanent in a relationship but not marriage
- younger sibling
- super skills in research
- suffered great loss
- eats salad
- knows Crowley
- knows much lore
- can she fix appliances
- did she hit a dog(okay I am getting a bit silly here)
With whom does she form her allegiance?
I remember Sam asking Dean at the beginning of season 11 if Dean ever wanted something more, not marriage, but something more permanent with perhaps another hunter. Is this the route the writers are going? Would this storyline infer that Dean is absorbed by the Darkness and Sam needs a bf with benefits? Supernatural is still very much a story about the Winchesters so I for one am hoping for another path.
Is she a vehicle to for the writers to pick up a story like Bela Talbot’s from season 3? The writers’ strike cut that Dean love interest short. Not a fan of this route either.
Is she a character who can be part of a spin off? Unless Kim Rhoades and the other wayward daughters are there as part of it, I’d be hesitant.
Just tossing around these ideas. I have no inside scoop nor do I know the work of the actress who has been chosen other than she is a CW player.
Do you dare speculate? It doesn’t cost anything if you are off but it could be fun. Thoughts?
