Well, every season has to have its downer.
Beware ranting ahead.
I think it's more frustrating when you can see the good nuggets of an episode in there somewhere while you're watching it wreck in slo-motion.
Ketch really is about the only thing decent in this episode as he at least acted somewhat smart and in character. I have no idea why Asmodeus left him alone AND Gabriel in an unlocked cage but maybe we'll find out.
What head canon did you concoct to explain the new "options" presented in "The Thing"?
