"Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie"
This is easy for me. There's only one clear winner. Probably because I think "Yellow Fever" has one of the best teasers ever. This time, instead of a terrified Dean running for his life, it's Sam. Whatever is after Sam, it has him really freaked. He's hiding behind the truck, talking himself through this terrifying ordeal. "If it can bleed, you can kill it." Good going Sammy, you're all set. Now it's time to see if whatever's chasing you is still there. Oh yes, still there. Its Sam's worst nightmare come true. It's...
He runs only into a nearby garage only to find...
...another clown. Things are looking desperate for poor Sammy. I'm too busy laughing over how such a tough guy can unravel so fast over dudes with colored wigs and face paint.
"Reading Is Fundamental"
I loved what happened in the beginning of this episode. Yes, it was a little long and you did wonder why an Asian teenager is fretting over a college entrance essay after his exquisite cello practice, but as soon as they get to the gist, Sam and Dean freeing the tablet they got an episode earlier from its stone incasement, I was enamored. Especially after Dean made the first strike, a lightening storm appeared. "Does that sound like "˜No, wait, stop' to you?" I do believe it does, Dean! They continue anyway, and poor Kevin Tran gets his epiphany via a personal lightening strike just for him. Those damn Winchesters are always taunting God and his rituals, aren't they?
