SPN season 9 ep.3

Well.... there was that... Not a bad episode, but, honestly, got a little bored and started playing a computer game while it was on *slaps own wrist* ;p

So many things that I did like -[Spoiler (click to open)]

  • the outsider (reaper) pov of the boys just going about their business

  • the pie banter! *hugs tight*

  • the bad-assery after the pie banter :)

  • Dean trying to cover up Cas' healing and Sam loss of memory with some on the fly, quick thinking, which gave just a glimpse of the old Dean of s.1/s.2

  • Cas wearing something other than a trench-coat (that never gets old)

  • Cas' observations, such as that often those with the least are the most generous, (though, for such an ancient being, and having hung out with the Winchesters for so long, he's remarkably dense on such simple things as how to use toothpaste)

  • Dean wandering around in his bathrobe :)

Which leads me to some of the things that left me either scratching my head, or didn't like so much -

  • Okay, did I miss something in the last episode and Kevin left? I thought that he was still in the bunker, so wouldn't he have been around when Cas and the boys were there?

  • Bartholomew (aka the new Dick Roman) is just too much like a Leviathan with wings

  • Are there any good angels other than Castiel? (I'm not counting Ezekiel because I don't trust him)

  • Dean was just a little too quick and had apparently no qualms to torture and kill the guy reaper... or the slutty girl reaper either

  • speaking of which, since when can reapers possess people?!

  • Dean and Sam not even trying to save the girl possessed by the slutty reaper

Not a bad ep., but I doubt Dean's house of cards of lies isn't going to last much longer. If Sam isn't worrying about potential brain damage due to his repeated memory loss, I'm sure he's going to figure out soon that something is not quite right :)

Couldn't agree more about the moral ambiguities in this episode. I'm never sure these days whether the show is still making subtle points about the Winchesters' ongoing reprobation, or whether the writers just don't see it themselves.

On reflection, I think it is deliberate. There's such a clear parallel between Dean torturing the first reaper and the second reaper torturing Cas that I think we are supposed to ask "well, what's the difference?"
