Tread Perilously concludes its annual horror month with another annual Halloween tradition: an episode of Supernatural. This year, it’s the season six episode “Clap Your Hands If You Believe …”
When Sam and Dean follow the trail of disappearances to a town where everyone assumes its aliens, Dean ends up abducted and learns the truth: it’s not aliens, it’s fairies. Sam’s current lack of soul makes their quest all the more difficult as small folk prepare for war. Will he learn to fake empathy long enough to convince a local watchmaker to join their cause? Will Supernatural ever realize a better fight than Dean vs. a fairie?
