DittyDotDot August 29, 2014 Share August 29, 2014 Sold out by Bela, Sam and Dean are trapped with Agent Henriksen in a county sheriff's office, under siege by a demon hoard. Oh Chuck, how I love that Hendrickson, let me count the ways. Okay, I won't count the ways, but he definitely brightens my T.V. screen and I lament his passing greatly. Right, the episode proper. It's a good, solid one IMO, but it gets weighed down by the yucky and totally obvious Ruby, also IMO. I really adore the first at least half of it before Ruby hops through that window. Which I think I need a little aside on anyway...I realize it's Supernatural, so shit like this doesn't always make sense and my general stance is that as long as Sam and Dean make sense, I go with it, but I'm rather confused on how it is that Ruby comes through that window--presumably as smoke--and then materializes in her human-possessed body. It doesn't really matter and I've long decided that she didn't come through the window as smoke and instead teleported in, but then there's the whole thing about needing a window to get through instead of just teleporting into any room...yeah, I know, time to move on. Okay...the first half is pure gold to me. I love that they are on Bella's trail and I love that she's just that bitchy that she sold them out. I love Hendrickson's arrival and I love, love, love how he tries to take over the police station. In fact I really love the cadence Charles Malik Whitfield gives to Hendrickson's voice. It's almost like he's rushing his lines, but I've seen the actor do other things and he doesn't talk like this so I assume it's an acting choice. It's so fitting for the character--I gotta a lot of stuff to say and don't have time to say it, pay attention and keep up--I love it. Sorry, little tangent again. I think I need to wrap this up before it's just a bunch of tangents strung together. There's some really good one liners, Sam and Dean are very Sam and Dean and smart and proactive throughout the entire episode and if it weren't for the ending it would be at the very top of my list of favorites. Speaking of the ending, have I mentioned how I hate that they killed Hendrickson just to teach Dean a nonsensical lesson about trusting evil demon chicks about warfare? Well I do. And, you want to know what I hate even more than that? I hate that they killed Hendrickson to teach Dean a nonsensical lesson about warfare and let Ruby laud it over them. Yuck! One last thing, speaking of Sam and Dean being very Sam and Dean...Sam using the puppy-dog eyes of doom to get Nancy's rosary was pitch perfect. And Dean's inappropriate levity at Hendrickson shooting the sheriff but not shooting the deputy was so spot on! And, it wouldn't be a good episode of Supernatural if they weren't shoving someone's head in a toilet filled holy water, now would it? ;) 3 Link to comment
