Devil's Bargain

Now that he’s engaged, Jensen Ackles (one-half of Supernatural‘s brother duo played by Jensen and Jared Padalecki) may be off-the-market, but I console myself with the fact that he is still making nightly cameos in my dreams and weekly appearances on (IMHO) the best show on TV. After Thursday’s episode, however, one of my sources of comfort goes on hiatus until Jan. 14, making it an undeniable Must this week.

If my intense frame-by-frame analysis of the episode’s preview and promo shots can be trusted (preview/spoiler phobes STOP here), we are finally going to get a taste of devil vs. angel action. There will be a fight for The Colt, the return of some favorite faces (mother-daughter hunting duo Jo and Ellen), and another appearance by Mark Pellegrino (playing Lucifer). It’s been a hilarious season of Supernatural, even though the plot has been riding a slow, creaky bicycle toward resolution, but I think we’re going to see some major action this week.

Now it’s your turn. What in the realm of TV/movies/books/online/all things entertainment do you think is awesome this week? Submit your choices by Thursday, Nov. 19 at noon ET. Remember to include an e-mail and some smart, witty reasoning. Your pick could end up in the magazine!
