WARNING!!!!!!  If you haven't seen tonight's episode of "Supernatural," read no further!  There will be plot discussion and spoilers and other things you won't want to read unless you have seen the episode.  Consider yourself warned!  If you're still here, let's do this!

First off, applause to Jensen Ackles for another job extremely well done directorially.  I think one of the highest compliments I can think of to pay him is that both of his episodes have fit in perfectly with the rest of the show, and this show gets some great directors, so very well done, sir.  Very well done, indeed.  Now onto the episode.

The Dean Situation
Honestly, I'm not really sure what to say right now because the ending... I'm conflicted.  On the one hand, I get that Dean is having massive trust issues right now.  Enormous trust issues, and not just with Sam.  He didn't trust Bobby, either, when Bobby told him to let Sam have a couple days and then go after him.  Nope, Dean cut his cast off and went looking for him right then and there.  I think what happened with Cass is really messing with his head, but he just hasn't let himself deal with it yet and instead is being, and I hate to say this, kind of a dick, actually.  Sam's being truthful and telling him about what's happening with the hallucinations, and, like Bobby said, he's doing better with the checking out and all that.  So Dean wants total honesty from Sam and then goes behind his back, lies to him, and kills Amy anyway.  And I get the killing Amy thing because, though she was pretty awesome and did her best not to kill people, she still did.  And you know what?  If her son got sick again, she would have killed again to heal him.  I have no idea why no one made that argument in the show because it kept jumping out at me as a rather legitimate one.  Okay, so Dean thinks she's a monster and needed to be put down, but wow, it was really cold the way he did it, and then in walks her son.  Yikes.  What a messed-up situation.  I just really don't know what to make of this whole thing yet.  I'm sure you'll have some suggestions in the comments for me.

The Sam Situation
I have to hand it to Sam, pun intended, but he is doing a much better job, seemingly, with keeping things straight as far as what's real and what isn't.  I guess the hand-pain trick really is working for him.  So that was good to see, Sam making progress.  And I think he also took a big step as far as his f-word issue was concerned.  Freak always bothered him so much in the past, but I think it was kind of healthy for him to just sort of accept that his life has kind of made him less than normal, and you know what?  That's okay.  It's time to move on and just let it be.  High marks for that one.  I was kind of proud of Sam there for that.

The Leviathan Situation
These guys are pretty organized.  They know all the Winchester aliases, huh?  I wonder how many people actually have that sort of information swimming around in their brains?  I bet Cass does, or at least his vessel!  I'm going to add that info to the list of things to support my theory that Misha Collins is coming back as the Leviathan boss.  But really, these guys are a huge threat because they're organized and they're legion and they're really not going to stop until they get the Winchesters.  But I also like that they weren't front and center too much, just a sort of "here's what's happening in the Leviathan organization right now" glimpse and off to other things.  And though Bobby was missing and brushed off his supposed death, I don't think he's a Leviathan.  If he was, why spend 3 weeks with the Winchesters when the rest of the Leviathan crew are looking for them?  That doesn't make sense to me.

My One Big Problem With This Episode

I don't think it was a bad episode because it wasn't, and I don't want to sound like I'm hating on it, but I really don't think it was well-served by having a 3-week time jump.  I mean, they set up some really important and huge things in the first two episodes, and that three missing weeks is when most of the fallout happened.  I mean, Bobby's house burned down, they lost Castiel, Sam and Dean were seriously injured in a fight with Leviathan, who made it clear the Winchesters are targets, Bobby was missing presumed dead, and it all got glossed over.  I'm not saying we needed a whole episode to deal with those issues, but maybe they could have been worked out or at least shown during a monster-of-the-week episode, too.  Instead, it was mentions of other hunters having problems and Bobby has to go collect his library stash.  It just felt kind of off to me.

Odds and Ends
Rufus' cabin!  RIP, Rufus.  It would have been way better if you'd been there, too.

Bobby made copies of his library!  Of course he did.  Some of you posted comments about this very thing in last week's speculation article, so well done!  High fives all around.

The physical comedy of Dean falling out of bed and Sam getting punched were hilarious.  I laughed.  A lot.

The lerk at the convenience store was wearing a "Batman: Under the Red Hood" t-shirt when Dean interviewed him.  Jensen, of course, did voice acting for that movie.  And the horror movie trailer that was playing on the TV while Dean was asleep was called "My Bloodiest Valentine 3D."  Jense, of course, starred in "My Bloody Valentine."  Nice!

Kitsune was one of the monsters I wrote about in a list of monsters that I wanted to see in season 6, so yay!  Cross that off the list.

Cake IS NOT pie!

Poor young Sam and his non-existent life.  But at least Dean gave him some good advice about talking to girls.  I was expecting some sort of bad pick-up line or something.

All right, I think that's all I've got for now.  How did you all like the episode?  Think Dean is heading for a massive breakdown?  Are you excited about Bobby getting the library back together?

Dean is definitely headed for a breakdown, which hurts me deeply, but also makes me very excited for some good material for Jensen.
This episode was not as good as the previous two, but was still pretty great. There were some odd story/plot choices made (and I kind of agree the time jump was odd) but overall it served a good purpose. I think we saw a lot of hints of things to come, though what those might be I don't know.
I wonder about the emphasis on the pain medication (shown at least twice, pretty predominantly)
I also agree about Amy and my first thought too was, "what if your son gets sick again?". I have to believe Sam thought of that argument, but desperately wanted to believe that she would keep to her word. Oh Dean; and that poor little boy...monster or not. Dean better watch his back. And I guess if nothing else, there's a storyline for a future season, depending on how many more they go!

I have this notion that The CW will fold in 2015 when their ten year affiliate agreements expire. So Supernatural will end at eleven seasons and go out with its network. That's just me though!

# Michelle Kinseth 2011-10-08 01:26
You know, if this happens and if the writers can keep giving us interesting stories and good family drama between the boys (haha, men is more like it), I'd be okay with SPN on my TV for another 3 years! ;D

It will be sad, but I think you're right unless the CW can break through and find a hit show like "Glee" or "American Idol". Those shows have really helped Fox to become a contender with the other 3 networks. Prior to that, I think they struggled even though they had a few other shows that were good to watch, but had a hard time crossing over to the main stream audience. X-Files had a loyal following. The CW needs to develop shows that appeal to all age groups and demographics and expand their viewing times to Sunday. A re-run of different shows night would be good.

As for Supernatural, I think it will end at the 10 year mark. By then, both Jared and Jensen would have been doing the show for such a long time. I think both of them will be wanting to start families and since both of them have stated that they wanted to wait to do that until after the show has ended.

# Sylvie 2011-10-09 09:09
I think 10 years would definitely be great, but yes, I do agree that the actors might want to do something different with their careers. Jensen Ackles is already 33, and Jared Padalecki is 29, so I hope that both these guys can find some decent movies to be involved with. They deserve that much.

I really liked this episode and thought Jensen did an excellent job directing. :D That being said, I, too, found some problems with the story this week. It didn't flow as smoothly, but maybe it wasn't suppose to. All the time jumping was confusing at times. We did get a lot of information about their past. Seeing how Teen!Sam responded to Dean and their dad was very interesting. He even mentioned Bobby as a research reference.

I was sad about one thing. It seems Dean may be going back down that road of keeping secrets from Sam. That never has had a happy resolution. One would think that he would have learned this by now. Dean is going to need to come clean with Sam about killing Amy and why he did it. I think we all know and understand why, but Sam needs to hear it from his big brother. Well, that's one thing that Dean is keeping from Sam and the PTB have been hinting that Dean's got an even bigger secret that he's been hiding. I wonder what that is? It can't be good. It never is on Supernatural.

I liked how the Leviathans were there, but not necessarily front and center. They're in the background; keeping tabs and tracking the Winchesters. That can't be good for either of our guys and Bobby. One note: Everything is better with cheese (or ketchup)! :-)

All the cast and crew did a wonderful job. Colin Ford makes such a great younger version of Sam. He's really picked up many of the mannerisms of Jared. I look forward to hopefully seeing him again. :lol:

Well, I'm looking forward to next week and seeing Jo again and Sam being a defense attorney. It should be good. After all, that was what Sam wanted to be at one time. :D

# rmoats8621 2011-10-08 14:25
One more thing...Did everyone notice the reference to Mistress Magda? The customer's name on the screen was David Righton. I really hope that this is a hint of God!Chuck's return. After all, I believe that he's the only one who can put the Leviathan back in Purgatory. He put them there in the first place. Also, it would be nice if Michael and Gabriel returned as well. Sam, Dean and Bobby could really use their help.

# KAZKRIZ!! 2011-10-08 01:29
first. Jensen seriously you did such a great job I really mean it.
Thi s eppi was pretty awesome. I liked the Dean's hospital happy face and the punch... LOL it was just great.
I went totally white when he killed Amy, and yes, I do think he's goin throug some really serious trust issues... I did believe him when he said he trusted sam but then... well, you know what's next.
Reammly excited to see what's next for him and how he's dealing with it. Can't wait for next episode.

again, Jensen I loved the long shots and the entire episode. Dude, you are such an amazing directos. Congrats!

I liked but didn't love this episode. Transition episodes like this tend to be weaker, but I still felt like the script was trying to do too much. The time jump bugged me, too. And I wanted more Jewel Staite! This felt like it could have been 1.5 or 2 episodes more fully fleshed out.

That being said, the material we got to mull over was pretty fantastic. This felt very much like a season 1 episode to me with the return of focus on Sam dealing with the F-word and Dean's black and white worldview, only now Sam's come to accept it and Dean is regressing to some degree back into that view that had started changing with Sam's visions and Lenore.

My favorite scene was Sam telling Dean that he knows he's a freak but he's managing. I hate to use the phrase considering his hellucinations, but he seems at peace with himself and his choices. And that's a place we really haven't seen Sam (there was that brief moment before he fell into the Pit in "Swan Song" but it's not something we've seen for any extended period).

And that Sam really seems to have come to terms with himself and his life makes Dean's slide harder to watch since Sam's been the one fighting against his life since the pilot. I do think he's on the brink of a breakdown. He has no sense of self and with everything changing around him, he's lashing out and falling into old habits (see monster, kill monster). I hate that he lied to Sam about trusting him, but I think that'll come out pretty early on next week. Looking forward to seeing how that plays out.

I loved those couple of Jensen-specific meta-references (the Red Hood t-shirt and the "Bloody Valentine" trailer). Was anyone else reminded of Kill Bill in the final scene, where the kitsune boy tells Dean he'll kill him some day? It was an unnerving note to end on..now I'm on countdown for the next one!

Dean has the breakdo and hits Sam wn while Sam just deals with his brokeness . Yep normal service resumed on SPN..

Still Colin was wonderful .

Again, Jensen well done.

My problem with this ep is that Dean, instead of moving forward and learning, he reacts again, like the past years had never happened. Sam told him at one time that not all monsters are bad. Even Vampires can deserve to live. And Dean agreed on that after he thought it through. So why not trust Sams judgment this time. Yes, Amy killed three times but in how many years? And look at the people she killed. Even the police was glad they are gone. She wasn't all that bad. But her kid is missing her guidence now. There is a possibility that he might turn into a really bad Kitsune just like Amy's mom.

I guess that Sam will find out in the next ep what Dean did and that it will bring up some issues between the brothers.

I am wondering, once Bobby collected all the copies of his books. Where is he going to stash them. They don't have a safe heaven anymore. They are all on the run. This is completly unlogically to me. It would make more sense to me, if he would leave the copies where ever they are for now and in case they need information out of one of those copies, they just have to travel to the hiding place of the book needed.Think it would make a funny ep if Bobby had to travel from one hiding place to another and Dean being on the phone with him constantly asking impatiently why he doesn't have the info yet.

# subwoofer 2011-10-08 07:55
like I said, I am still hung up on where and when Dean saw "Girl Interrupted". Big fan of "Firefly" so I was happy to see Kaylee again.

Dean is a Hunter- it is part of his DNA through and through. Dean tried to go the family route, wife, kid, steady job, but the Hunter in him called out. Same here. Dean gave Sammy the benefit of the doubt as far as Sam's motivations to let the girl go, but Dean has to stay true to who he is. I don't see this as lack of character development, but more like internal consistency.
As for the rest, the boys have to start picking new fake names. Lemmy? Lars? It's a great site gag, but at some point I expect to see a gas store clerk or someone give them a hard time for having the same name as a rock star. And it makes them easy fodder for demon tracking programs apparently. Maybe something more obscure... like dead rock stars from back in the day ;-)

Edit- oh yeah... yay that Bobby is still alive. I am thinking that the copies of rare books was too easy tho'. But that is something Bobby would do. The demon free room should still be intact. How about a rebuild episode? This on the road thing without the home base smacks of reasons for designing new sets and nothing else.

I agree that this ep wasn't quite up to the first two in terms of plot, but it was decent. I happen to be rewatching SPN from season 1, ep 1 at the moment (training for a race and sometimes run on my treadmill) and I have to share this observation and see if anyone else agrees. Watching current eps of SPN juxtaposed with early seasons really, really puts these last two seasons at a disadvantage. The budget cuts are SO APPARENT! The look of the show in the first several seasons was so cinetmatic and atmospheric and greatly enhanced the gritty mood that works so well with the fantasitical things the boys deal with. The music has changed as well--not just the classic rock, but the score. It makes season 6 and 7 feel...well..le ss than :( I may have to stop rewatching season 1 so I can enjoy season 7! Am I crazy, or does anyone else find this to be true??
Bevie
# Bevie 2011-10-08 14:37
No. I'm still loving it at season 7. But I have said many times before that season 1 is my favourite season. And 2 & 3 as well.

I've really liked the first 3 episodes this season, and even though I would like more classic rock, I love the Winchesters and their friends (dead or alive) and am in this until the very end. Looking very much forward to next Friday.

Loved Jensen's directing. He really gets it as he should after being Dean for going on 7 years. Bravo indeed!

Colin Ford is awesome as young Sam. You can really see Sammy in his face.

Sammy shouldn't have run out AGAIN on his wounded brother and thoroughly deserved that punch. LOL. Though his head doesn't need any more shaking up. :sigh:

And welcome back badass Dean. I've really missed you. :P

First of all, I am writing this on my phone so forgive any auto-correct errors. I will try to avoid them but no guarantees because I am so disgusted right now

WORST EPISODE EVER. 3 week jump - lame. Instant escape from hospital courtesy of Bobby ( guess he's taking over for Cassette at that) with no exciting scenes with Leviathans? Boring! Cheesy orange dissolves to flashbacks? Clumsy.

But worst of all is what they did character - wise. Sam leaves Dean alone, helpless in the cabin, in a cast, with no car no less, knows Dean is freaking out about him, and doesn't answer the phone. Nice.
Dean killing Kaylee( er, Amy) in cold blood was heartless and unnecessary. Did he forget all the innocent people possessed that he and Sam have killed over the years? Black and white my ass. Then just let the kid go? Makes zero sense.

Thought they were supposed yo be getting the brothers back on track. NOT. Same old trust and betrayal issues. Just a horrible horrible episode. Impossible to even like either brother in this episode.
Only bright note? The cheese! Love the Leviathans.

I haven't read everyone's post just yet, I'm on someone else's computer, so I'll check everything back on Tuesday when I get back to my own computer.

But I wanted to give my two-cents, for what it's worth. I was kinda shocked at the end when Dean killed Amy in so cold a fashion. I do understand why he did it, but still, I think that might come back and bite him in the a** (as perfect as it might be). Him telling her son to look him up later reminded me of Uma Thurman's character in "Kill Bill" when she kills the mother in front of the young girl and tells her to see her later in life in she wants revenge.

I too wished that TPTB hadn't skirted over the issue of Bobby's house burning down, the broken leg, the head injury, it's like, slow down a little. Maybe it'll be addressed later? Although I think that ship has sailed.

Random thoughts. Now, cake instead of pie? Tsk, tsk, Sammy, I agree with Dean on that one, not good. How awesome was it seeing so much of Colin Ford again, love that kid, he does young Sam so well. Dean in a cast watching tele novelas, I laughed, it was perfect. And him being all helpless and all, yummy! The commercial for "My Bloody Valentine 3D", ha! The direction was very good, Jensen has shown us that he can play with the big boys, let's hope he directs another one next year.
paintgirl770
# paintgirl770 2011-10-08 10:42
I definitely did NOT laugh at the face punch.
If Sam wants to be trusted maybe he should, oh i dont know, not sneak away when Dean is sleeping, steal his car, strand him in a cast, and not answer his calls. That might be a good place to start.
And Dean? We all knew you were going to kill that woman first chance you got so why not man up about it? And why leave the kid alive? Ugh.
KAZKRIZ!!
# KAZKRIZ!! 2011-10-09 23:57
because it's Dean... and also look at how everybody is complaining about killing Amy, and can you imagine how would they be if he kkilled the boy?!
I'm waiting to see what's next and not doing some really annoying comments about Dean.
Kellie
# Kellie 2011-10-08 11:48
I totally suported Dean kiling Amy and not killing the kid. She was a monster, and she had been killing humans. Sure, she was doing it because her kid was sick, and that's understandable. Bottom line though, hunters kill monsters that kill people. They dont really take into account the intentions before deciding it. Yeah, it is kind of black and white but it seemed right. I liked Dean's line about her being a monster and her victims being people.

I was dissapointed when Sam didn't kill her, but really glad Dean went back and cleaned up the mess.

Also, yeah he didn't kill the son, but the kid hadn't killed anyone before. And he said the only one he would kill would be Dean. Understandable too, I guess~

Dean was giving the kid a chance, and he said if he did start killing, Dean would come back for him. Seems like a good reason to not kill if you ask me..

And Dean's always had a soft spot for kids, I think. One more reason he's so lovable~

Bobby seemed a bit off when he was trying to convince Dean not to go off and look for Sam, but I loved the begining when he patted Dean on the neck all 'father-like'! Aww!

(Plus, Dean in the hospital was so adorable, oh my gosh..)

Also, Dean watching soaps? He's such an old lady... x)
Robijean16
# Robijean16 2011-10-08 21:20
Dean said almost exactly the same thing to Andy Gallagher in "Simon Said" in Season 2. That he'd be watching and come back for him if it became necessary. Dean is very consistent.

Also no one has mentioned but Amy gave up her job as a mortician. Dean commented on that so now she doesn't have access to dead brains so I believe she was going to kill sooner rather than later.

Dean did ask the kid if he had someone to go to which I felt meant he was concerned about him being on his own. And he seemed to understand the kid's desire for revenge.

Dean seemed very Dean to me in this. I also thought the way Dean treated Amy's body by lying her gently on the bed was because he knew how much she meant to Sam.

I also think Sam sensed Dean gave in too easy in agreeing with him and knew what Dean was going to do and chose not to fight him on it because he knew it wouldn't stop Dean or change his mind.

Dean was more than willing to kill the Rugaroo before he had killed anybody. So he's allowed to make judgment calls and Sam isn't? Don't get me wrong I didn't Sam in this episode either.

# alysha 2011-10-08 12:03
Dean watching mexican soaps and then speaking spanish to Bobby! Priceless. Yeh, that was cute, but yes, Dean is in a very bad place and i think we are headed for more.

I am not surprised he killed Amy, and knowing his insticts, it was probably the right thing to do, but still. It was cold, it was uncomfortable to see him that way because perhaps it has been some time since he has been so cold. It reminded me of the vampire episode when Dean used the industrial saw to cut the vamps head off and Sam watched him. That Dean was unhinged with grief, as I think he is now.
Carole Noble
# Carole Noble 2011-10-08 13:12
Well, as with any Supernatural episode, I liked this episode. Although for me it did have a few problems.

But Jensen's directing - Ace again :) Well done Jensen.


Okay first off, Dean really pissed me off in this episode. He is always grilling Sam about lying to him, then he goes and does it! And your right, he was a dick in this. If it was his son dying he would have done the same thing. He killed Amy leaving her son to fend for himself..

Sam, I am proud of, he's doing well I think!

The Leviathan's so nothing can kill them? I don't believe that, because what I have read about them is there is two thing that can kill Leviathan's 1: The arch-angel Michael and 2: The Arch-Angel Gabriel - Well what story lines could come of that.


So Leviathan's are keeping tabs on the Boys - Not good!


Yeah! Bobby is awesome, making copys! "Hello Bobby Singer, paranoid bastard"


Hey did anyone notice the 'Mistress Magda' thing? When the leviathan was checking card records? Like when Chuck answered the phone in season 5 finale?

# Stephanie 2011-10-08 17:54
I liked the episode, but definitely not as much as the first two, but I guess they couldn't keep up the frenetic pace forever.

I really didn't like that they skipped over those three weeks. I feel like there was a lot of stuff going on in those three weeks that we should have been privy too and, as some others have said, it was just glossed over.

Also..I'll probably get flack for this because I know it was supposed to be a comedic moment, but it really upset me when Dean punched Sam. First of all, Sam had just recovered from a serious head trauma, but mostly it upsets me that every time Dean gets upset with Sam, the first thing he does is punch him. It just really bothers me.

As for Dean killing Amy (love the Dr Who shout out, BTW), I understand why he did it, but I don't like how he went about it. The boys should know by now that lying and sneaking around has only brought them grief.

Oh.. and I thought the casting of young Amy was spot on. I thought she really looked like a young Jewel Staite. And of course, Colin was great as usual.

Looking forward to next week!

# lianne 2011-10-08 18:26
Well I really liked the the episode. I thought it portrayed both Sam and Dean as the complex people they are, who have both been beaten down by life, but who are doing the best they can to do their job and just make it through another day.

But it seems bashing Dean is the priority here, so... I'll leave y'all to it.
subwoofer
# subwoofer 2011-10-08 21:28
Yeah, reminds me of Dean describing his brother... "did a big guy come in here yesterday? really big?" *using his hand to indicate height* yeah- good handle on what your brother looks like Dean, you only see the guy every flippin' day :-* Oh yeah @caz- Bobby Singer (www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9pcNBRSO84) :lol:

BTW I'm not too worried about Dean smoking Sam upside the head- the boys have both been to Hell, been slammed, crushed, shot at... etc, I think a little brotherly er... affection is not the end of the world.
Cody B
# Cody B 2011-10-09 01:28
I'm posting before i read the article or comments so i apologize if i repeat anything. First off, I just want to say I have always been partial to Dean...until recently. It started with the end of season 6. Regardless of how things turned out, Dean did not give Castiel one shred of support no matter what Castiel did to rectify the original lie. I get that it hurt Dean, but when dealing with an archangel hell bent on restarting judgement day, I tend to at least understand where Castiel was coming from. But sure, okay, Castiel lied and while they were "like" family, they never were. But now this latest action with blatantly going behind Sam's back and continuing the circle of mistrust when Sam is actually trying to be honest is very upsetting. Dean came off as a hypocrit, telling the "freak" she will kill again no matter what so she has to die, but then letting the kid go. If your so convinced your way is the right way, go for it all the way--not half assed. Point is, i feel like this was a very intentional thing by the writers and i have a feeling we are going to be seeing a lot more of Dean's darkside this season..which sucks because if he had trusted sam in the last scene i feel like the brotherly bond that has been flawed since season 4 would finally have been completely fixed...guess not
Cody B
# Cody B 2011-10-09 01:37
..also, dean using "the other foot dropping" line about sam and later amy shows how much mistrust he has currently. My thing is this..Sam really hit it on the head about Amy's kid being sick. If either of the brothers were in that situation with their family, they would do the same...and i think we all know this is true..yes Amy was a monster, but she freakin killed her own mother to deny that way of living. Sam can start the end of the world (killing an innocent nurse for her blood in the process) but this "monster" is an open and shut case without ANY hesitation. I would get it if Sam decided it, but it wasn't Deans call to make...sorry but Dean is my favorite character and this is the first time i've been mad with the direction and actions they've had him go through recently.

# Ryan 2011-10-09 04:36
Dean killing Amy didn't bother me. It showed that Dean is a soldier through and through and that he will do his job no matter what. Sam still irks me a little but he is doing better. All in all the episode was a 2 thumbs upper for me.

I really didn't like the fact that Dean killed Amy after promising to trust Sam; and while I know that there are ways to justify it, I wonder if it's possible that something else is going on. Is it possible that Dean got replaced by a Leviathan at the hospital? There were a few minutes there between him seeing Bobby and getting to the ambulance where he was unaccounted for. That would explain both why he was ok to cut his cast off a week early and why the Leviathan in the convenience store only made a big deal about Sam being in the store.

I liked the new rule: "you steal my baby, you get punched"
Sam deserved it... he ran away as a friggin teenager and just like Dean said "I had a lot of horror stories coming out of my mind " (not exactly stated but oh well)

He left for a few days to work a job and he left a note. I don't think it's still called running away from home when you're 29 years old and single.
