So you all know that I have not been terribly impressed with this season of Supernatural. To be honest it’s a mixture of poor story telling and acting by Jared. This season has really showcased that Jensen has just has more experience, not necessarily talent, then Jared which is a shame. I think the writers are giving Jared a chance to show himself, but often times he seems to go to far which is both his bad and the director’s. Sometimes it just hurts to watch him and that upsets me because Sam was the character that drew me into the show because in the first few episodes I saw Dean was just an asshole. *shrugs*
So onto the episode itself: I actually liked the humor in this particular episode. They handled it in a way that it didn’t completely overshadow the horror that was happening. I really enjoyed the nudity of the opening scene with the couple that literally ate each other to death with the nudity of the Cupid. It managed to lighten the squick factor of the opening sequence—which was indeed squicky.
Castiel constantly devouring red meat was highly amusing throughout the episode and it did prove the theory that Jimmy is still present within Castiel. Which brings up all sorts of questions as to what happens to Jimmy if/when Castiel becomes human in the future.
The completely broken aspect of Dean was interesting and possibly very true. Though a part of my thinks there’s more to Dean not being influenced by the Horsemen and that will take a bigger role later on in the season. The episodes ending scene was rather brilliant. I think Dean actually breaking down and praying to a God he doesn’t necessarily believe in was both sad and kinda full circle with last season’s finale. I do think that something has to give in Dean and soon, but I’m not sure what or which way it’s going to or should give.
I have to admit though that I really want both boys to say yes. If only so I can see a showdown between Lucifer and Michael. I’m a twisted little thing. I know. *beams*
