After two dodgy seasons, "Supernatural" has recaptured a good deal of its mojo, and its mythology has been expanded in a number of tantalizing ways.

Although the playfully titled "Clip Show" didn't quite showcase the greatest hits of "Supernatural," it did take us on a brief trip down memory lane, revisiting characters from "Wendigo," "Shut Up, Dr. Phil," and "Provenance."

It's been a while since I've felt the need to rewatch an episode of "Supernatural" to try and fully digest it, but "The Great Escapist" was a dense and action-packed hour that proved integral to the season's arc and added another layer to the show's mythology as a whole.

After the ambitious but creatively uneven "Taxi Driver," it was great to see "Supernatural" back on track with the resonant and surprisingly poignant "Pac-Man Fever," another well-plotted hour from the consistently adept Robbie Thompson.

I'm of two minds about "Taxi Driver," which had some ambitious ideas and some weighty plot movements to handle, but also seemed to lack the sparkle or gravitas of previous episodes in much of its execution.

Since not every "Supernatural" episode can be centered around the season's chosen mythology, it would be nice if every self-contained episode could be like "Freaks and Geeks," which paid homage to the series' history while still providing fans with the satisfying character beats we tune in for every week.

After an agonizing three-week absence, "Supernatural" returned with "Goodbye Stranger," which turned out to be one of the best episodes of Season 8 to date. Written by Robbie Thompson and directed by Thomas J. Wright, "Stranger" was well-paced, crammed with memorable lines, and showcased some delicious character interplay.

"Supernatural" has dealt with many kinds of gods, rituals and belief systems over the course of the series so far, but "Remember the Titans" was the show's first real attempt to tackle the dense and iconic mythology of the Greek gods.

'Supernatural': Give The Dog A Bone

This season of "Supernatural" has been better than some at constructing engaging standalone episodes with only minor threads of mythology woven in, but "Man's Best Friend With Benefits" fell a little short of the mark.

Did "Supernatural" just give us more character progression in one episode than we've had in three seasons? Because it sure felt that way to me.

Sam And Dean Take On Nazi Necromancers In 'Supernatural'

The odd-couple dynamic of Aaron and his belligerent golem offered an amusing detour from the season's mythology, even if the chosen Monster Of The Week -- Nazi necromancers! -- was a particularly random choice, even by "Supernatural" standards.

In typical "Supernatural" fashion, the playful "LARP and the Real Girl" was a tonal 180 from the emotionally fraught events of "Torn and Frayed," which probably comes as a relief for those of us who are still reeling from last week's intense hour.

Perhaps most impressively, considering "Torn and Frayed" was mostly just a typical search and rescue mission, the episode featured plenty of development on the mythology front without feeling too heavy-handed.

"Supernatural" has always pulled off its midseason finales with great aplomb, and I'm pleased to report that "Citizen Fang" showed no sign of breaking that streak -- packing half a season's worth of tension, betrayal and angst into a 42-minute slice of character development.
