Supernatural: Rowena MacLeod for NIGHT SHIFT

It's Supernatural Thursday of Witch Week and that can only mean one thing; let's do some NIGHT SHIFT stats for Rowena MacLeod.

Spoilers up to Season 15 follow.

What is there not to love about Rowen? She is a badass redhead witch who gave the Winchesters a run for their money for seven seasons. She was the big bad for Season 10. She was born in the 17th Century Scotland, she is a pagan and is the mother of the former King of Hell, Crowley.  Now she is the Queen of Hell.  She only "died" because she needed to turn herself into a giant ghost bomb.

There were a lot of magic-using characters in Supernatural as well as a lot of them that were witches, but Rowena was the most powerful.

I will admit. I adore Rowena.  She was a fantastic enemy AND ally of the Winchesters, and I would have loved to see a little of Rowena's and Charlie's road trip. That would have been a lot of fun.   

If I am serious about running a Wayward Sisters game, Rowena will have to show up. Dead? That never stopped her before!  And we know that Rowena/Ruth supports the Wayward cause!


Ruthie Connell is an absolute delight.  I can't wait to see what she does next.

You know, one thing I appreciate about our game is that even at 15th level, this character is nowhere NEAR unbeatable. A few well-placed gunshots and she's down. That means even as you work upward in levels you still need to play careful.

Ruthie Connell was a wonder everytime she appeared. If only some kind of SPN spin off could bring back all the favorites? Winchesters was not bad, for a start, but a show like Supernatural has more sequel and prequel possibilities than any show ever made - and unlike most reboots, the fans would eat them up.
