DittyDotDot August 31, 2014 Share August 31, 2014 A series of people receive phone calls from dead loved ones, who urge them to commit suicide. Sam and Dean take time out from deal-breaking to investigate. I'm always surprised how much this episode grabs me, I seem to forget how much I like it. This is one of those episodes they used the two-sides of the same coin thing really well, IMO, and in true Supernatural fashion we get the boys flipping their perspectives and then flipping them back again. I also love the repeating of lines that helps keep the episode held together. The concept of a monster using our over-connected lives to find and kill is interesting and it holds up fairly well considering how much more we've become technologically connected. I wish I understood how the monster fed on some of those people though, since he wasn't in their presence when they killed themselves. And I wish I knew how a kid's toy phone, that wasn't connected to anything, could be used by the crocatta...I know, I'm getting caught up on the stupid shit again. So, I like Stewie and thought the actor was funny. I'm always amused by that quotty-fingered tour guide and the spirit phone thing was a good gag too. Mostly though, I think the fight scene at the end is one of their best (although, there's really a lot of them, so that's hard to judge today). I'm rather fond of how they cut the two fight scenes together to keep the pace up. And the scene at the end where Dean admits he's really, really scared is some really nice bro stuff. Not that I didn't know Dean was scared, but I liked the dialogue with Sam asking if he wanted a poem and the moment Dean pulls out the two beers never fails to tug at my heartstrings. So, yeah, I think this is a good one, overall. Link to comment
