Art Reflecting Life: Supernatural Predicts The Future?

An Angel and a Demon walk into a bar…yes it sounds like the set up to a joke but it was, in fact, the set up of a very interesting scene in last week’s CW cult hit, Supernatural.

Season 11 starts with our heroes trying to figure out how to fix the damage they have brought...
