Less than one week to Thanksgiving! This year, I’m thankful for Supernatural seasons 5-7. Their mediocrity allowed me take a step back from the show and its fandom. So what if young Sam looked to be 8 or 10 years old instead of the 12 he was supposed to be. The important take away from the scene is Dean’s total and absolute love for Sam.
You know you’ve been watching Supernatural too long when a tine fork-equipped tractor impales its victim, propelling the tines through the barn door (with a bit of blood on the center tines)… and you laugh out loud. Oh yes, I did!
I was delighted to see Blake Gibbons in the credits. In my General Hospital days, he played the owner of a strip club who forced Courtney to dance in order to pay off her husband AJ’s debts. Until she was rescued by AJ’s brother, mob thug Jason. (Oh soaps, you are something else.) It’s nice to know he can play good guys, too.
The episode was a good one until the last 10 minutes. Then it became wonderful. I haven’t had time to rewatch the episode (which I normally do before posting), so I can’t comment on Sam’s supposed unawareness or nonchalance with Dean’s two-month absence. All I know is John is an ass, Dean loves Sam enough to leave a good life behind, and Sam knows it. Oh, and D-Dog!
