Carry On My Wayward Son

When I first heard that there was going to be a musical episode, I was confused. A musical Supernatural episode? How could that even work? I honestly didn’t think it could.

I wasn’t going to watch it. But then I made the mistake of sneak peek of it.

It was a surreal experience. A cast of girls lined up in a row, much like how the actors in RENT performed ‘Seasons of Love’. The ladies sung the fan-proclaimed theme song of the show, ‘Carry On Wayward Son’

I couldn’t help myself. I watched the full thing later that night.

Despite its many flaws, the episode was hilarious. I genuinely enjoyed Supernatural for the first time in forever. While the main characters didn’t sing, the prey of the week did. You see, said group of girls from above created a musical based on the two protagonists of Supernatural (long story). In the midst of this, they had to kill a monster.

While I wouldn’t give the show a Tony Award anytime soon, it was nice. It was pretty cool to see some of my favorite scenes in musical form. And don’t even get me started on all the musical references. I smiled every time.

Unfortunately, the episode did not mend my relationship with Supernatural. I guess that only works on some people. But at least one of the last episodes I’ll ever what of the show was a good one.

However, now I’m worried.

Musical theatre is one of my favourite things and I don’t want my love for it to end. I like to think it won’t, but then again, my love for Supernatural died. It’s more than likely that this will too.

If it does, I think I will be okay with it. While my love might fade away, it will have left an imprint on my heart (it’s not my cheesy line, don’t roll your eyes).

Before it does, hopefully it will help me gather the courage to go volunteer at the Ottawa Little Theatre on November 30th. Yes, it’s finally happening.

If I can’t find time to write about said volunteering experience, then this is my last blog post about this subject matter. This isn’t a particularly sad goodbye, but a fond one. This blog brought me closer to musical theatre, and I can’t be too upset about that.

So long, farewell…you know the rest.
