A definite improvement, just like the whole season. For most of the season it remained manageable, with a few noted exceptions. It seems that exercising demons with your mind doesn't require good hair. Sam has to be grateful for that.
A bit of trouble here, but at least he worked in a cut during his grief. It's far better than when he wept over his brother's demise. I hope the new look made him feel better. Hair has to be shorter though when pulling demons with your mind, but that also must generate electricity given how his hair flipping up in retreat, just like Dilbert's tie. He ended up working out that side effect later though, you know, when he got better and stronger.
I Know What You Did Last Summer
Sam's emotional state might be all over the map on this one, but for some bizarre reason, his hair looks great in every scene. Kinda hot actually. Maybe the hair symbolizes, "Barely holding it together?" Nah, I didn't think so either. It even manages to look so fine when he's drunkenly killing another crossroads demon and not so successfully fending off advances from a horny one. However, winner in this episode is when he stitches his own wound before tending to Dean's dislocated shoulder. I'd be tearing my hair out over that much pain. Sam decided otherwise and damn was that a wise decision.
On The Head Of A Pin
If you're going to torture and kill a high level demon with your mind, might as well carry the style that fits. Granted it doesn't look as great at it could, but at least it's out of his face so we get the full effect of all those twisted facial expressions that are required in zapping a baddie to oblivion.
When The Levee Breaks
The rare time where a mess is a good mess. This is Sam at his lowest point, and the hair tells the sorry tale just as effectively as the haunting makeup. Heck, even in that state it looks way better than all of season three. And season one. By this time, Sam's identity and his hair are clearly one in one.
Hmm, I guess there is no pattern. Sam's hair stubbornly does what it wants, and its caretaker isn't in the mood to fight it. He's got bigger fish to fry. We don't mind either, for we love him bad hair or not. So, what's your favorite Sam hair episode? Your least favorite?
