We try to steer clear of hyperbole, but Supernatural season 14 episode 8 seems like a big episode. As a matter of fact, it could be the biggest episode of the entire season. Provided that this episode, entitled ‘Byzantium,” may be the midseason finale, it certainly makes sense for the writers to want to go big. It seems on paper like they are looking to do that now with a number of big characters, whether you are talking about the Winchester brothers or also Castiel.

We don’t want to spend forever on the hype here before getting to the meat. Let’s go ahead and share the Supernatural season 14 episode 8 synopsis, since it offers up a good bit of insight as to what you should be excited about on the story moving forward:
OUT OF THE DARKNESS – When Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) join forces with an unexpected ally, the outcome will alter the course of two lives. Meanwhile, Heaven faces an attack from a dark force, driving Castiel to make an enormous sacrifice to make things right. The episode was directed by Eduardo Sanchez and written by Meredith Glynn (#1408). Original Airdate 12/6/2018.
When it comes to Sam and Dan teaming up with an unexpected ally, the real response we have for that is a shrug. They’ve done that before and if the series continues for another few years, they’ll do that again. As for something that actually alters the course of two lives, that’s a little bit different. That’s something that is rather specific and could actually change the show as we know it — at least for a few weeks. It’s never too great an idea to over-state some of the big twists with this series, mostly due to the fact that so many of them do tend to get wrapped up a few weeks after they are introduced. Nonetheless, this is certainly a compelling enough tease that it cannot be ignored.
As for Castiel, what could he actually do to stir things up in a significant way? We’ll have to wait and see but we do anticipate an attempt at a jaw-dropper or two … if it’s really possible to do that with Castiel on this show anymore. Given all of the terrible stuff that has unfolded with Misha Collins’ character over time, is there really any way to surprise us save for writing him out and saying that he’ll never return? That’s not something that we want to even write out loud … mostly out of fear of what would happen as a result of it.
How do you think Supernatural season 14 will wrap up its fall run?
