If you heard a huge groan around 9:15 (ET), that was me reading the “Special Guest Star” credits for “Blade Runners.” Thankfully, Snooki’s part was even shorter than Paris Hilton’s in… whatever episode that was. Actually, Snooki wasn’t too bad. A crossroads demon was a great part for her.
So Crowley’s phone lists Dean as “Not Moose.” Does that mean Sam’s phone shows up as “Not Squirrel”? And Sam is researching “Cain and Abel, The First Brothers.” Because? Is he preparing himself if Dean should turn against him?
I’m quite enjoying this year’s change-up in the show’s history with Dean being given the special gift and supernatural task. Not that I ever minded the seasons when that onus fell to Sam. In fact, Sam being the one to take on the three Close-the-Gates-of-Hell tasks was one of my favorite surprises last season. But having the significant responsibility fall to Dean brings a new dynamic to the show and the brothers. Perhaps this will be the year that Sam will have to save Dean ‘s humanity from his dark side. Actually, he did it in a small way here, although Sam’s main motive might have been to save his own skin.
I’m not sure I like having the “old” Crowley back, but one thing’s for sure—Mark Sheppard certainly deserves an Emmy.
Alas, poor Dean. Abaddon’s minions keyed his baby! I think he might have been more upset about that than Crowley’s double-cross.
