DittyDotDot August 24, 2014 Share August 24, 2014 Sam and Dean investigate a coven of witches. _______________________________________ I'm always surprised how I'm not too fond of this one given that it's written by that clever Edlund fellow--but I guess everyone can have an off day, even Mr. Ben Edlund. There are some good parts and all, but overall too much witchy witches, IMO--also, yucky and obvious Ruby gets a couple of monologues...yuck! I'm with Dean, kill her by whatever means works. I really hate how they have Dean almost buying into her crap by the end of the episode, I still had no reservations that she was up to no good. And, I've never been very fond of the whole Sam-and-Dean-get-pinned-against-a-wall-and-stand-in-the-background-until-it's-time-for-them-to-be-a-part-of-the-scene shtick. It's boring and seems like a lazy solution to a problem, to me. In-fact this episode looks so very basic overall--but then I noticed that Singer directed it and it all made sense in the end. So, there is some good things...that little stand 'n' chat between Dean and Ruby at the end was well performed and Dean learning what's in store for him in Hell was interesting information. And, I always get a chuckle out of the scene where Sam and Dean are arguing about why they should or shouldn't kill Ruby and Dean basically states the whole show in a nutshell "We're supposed to drive in the freakin' car and freakin' argue about this stuff." HA! Even gets a chuckle when I type it! And the idea that these witches were just bitchy women that unknowingly sold their souls to a demon in order to win a couple of crafty competitions and get lower mortgage rates is an interesting discussion. And all three actresses played their parts very well, I'm just not sure I was that interested in them that they needed to overtake the episode. I think Dean sums up this episode nicely for me..."I hate witches...They're always spewing their bodily fluids everywhere...It's creepy, you know, it's down right unsanitary." Hee! 1 Link to comment
