DittyDotDot August 1, 2014 Share August 1, 2014 Sam and Dean track down a werewolf that has made San Francisco its hunting ground _______________________________________ Overall, not an episode I care much about. I really hate the whole trope of boy-meets-girl-and-instantly-is-in-love-but-tragically-she's-a-monster-and-boy-must-then-kill-girl-to-save-the-world (yeah, I'm pretty sure it's a thing). Add on the mawkish level of angst and I'm basically out. I get that most of the story is really about how Sam thinks he might be a monster and saving Madison would be hope that he can be saved, but didn't (and apparently still don't) care for the heavy-handedness. Plus, didn't really feel many sparks between Sam and Madison, nor did I find that sex scene was all that sexy or hot. (I suited up for the rotten tomatoes so go ahead and do your worst, seriously, I'm ready! ;) ) I also didn't get why there was sympathy for Madison because she didn't know what was happening to her, but they didn't seem all that concerned about Glenn, who apparently was in the same boat. Just because you want to sleep with the hot chick, doesn't mean the goofy guy down the hall is more worthy of being dead, IMO. It could have been a really fascinating discussion about what makes a monster a monster, instead it feels like one of those Sweet Valley High books my friends read when we were 12-years-old. ::looks around nervously and coughs:: Of course, I wouldn't know much about those things, other than what my friends told me. ;) There are some moments I actually do like (other than the direction of Kim Manners, because that's kind of a given with me)...as I said before, Rock-Paper-Scissors amuses me more than it has a right to; Sam being all uncomfortable and awkward at Madison's and Dean knowing that's what was happening was nice; and I also liked that they followed through with killing Madison because they didn't have any other choice. The job is a hard and sometimes they're going to need to make some tough calls and at the time, there were no other options. Of course they worked pretty hard to make this be a null and void situation recently, but since it's one of the few things that actually worked for me, I'm keeping it anyway. 2 Link to comment
