Okay, I'm giving this episode benefit of the doubt.  First, it's written by Sera Gamble, who never disappoints. 

Second, Chad Everett!!!  Freaking Chad Everett!  Anyone who watched TV in the 1970's knows who he is.  Dr. Joe Gannon from Medical Center!  He was on all those iconic old TV shows like Route 66 (which in part was inspiration for Supernatural), Maverick, 77 Sunset Strip, The Man From U.N.C.L.E, Ironside, and the one show all 70's TV stars did at one time or another, The Love Boat.  He is the ultimate journeyman of television, but given his later credits in Murder She Wrote, Diagnosis Murder, Touched By An Angel, and The Love Boat The Next Wave, youth oriented Sci-Fi is definitely something new to him.  It's quite an interesting acting credit for his filmography.  I think it's awesome.  Judging by the previews for him as Older Dean, it looks promising.   

Anyway, what did you think?  I trust everyone to be on your best behavior.  I really do.  Happy episode everyone!
