DittyDotDot August 10, 2014 Share August 10, 2014 The hunters discover the Yellow-Eyed Demon's plan; the war begins. ____________________________________________________________ I'm really no more invested in this episode than I am with it's predecessor. I think it's the same problem I have with most of their finales though...they're way over-packed with plot and overwrought with angst that in the end I'm left feeling underwhelmed. I do think that Jensen is really masterful in the beginning with his speech over Sam's corpse; his deal making with the crossroads demon; his hugging Sam and trying to keep his dirty little secret to himself; even that scene with Bobby in the junkyard. I just think it could have been served better if it was a two-parter itself--too much stuff going on to fully service it all, IMO. I still can't really understand Jake's motivation or how he goes from "I'm not doing what you say because you're evil and I'm not" to not only giving in to the physic crap, but enjoying the evil evilness that he's creating in like two seconds. But, whatever, I never understand that sort of thinking anyway, so I'll just move on. The idea of the train-track devil's trap is really a marvelous one; the gun-that-can-kill-everything-except-when-it-doesn't being the key to the devil's gate though...not so much. I realize they were trying to figure out a way to tie up why Yellow Eyes wanted that gun so bad back in S1, just it didn't really work so well for me. And, I also never really understood how they got to the cemetery before Jake, but didn't look around and find the devil's gate? Stinks of more laziness to me. However, I know that they had massive problems while shooting this episode and Kripke wrote an almost un-producible script that they had to mostly rewrite on the fly, so I'll give them a bit of leeway here. Anyway, I usually only watch the first half and then start doing something else and it plays in the background throughout the second half. Maybe I'm more like those kids I like to raise my fist at than I would like to think--I'm too easily distracted by shiny things. 1 Link to comment
