DittyDotDot October 10, 2014 Share October 10, 2014 (edited) Sam and Dean track down the Colt and go after Lucifer. I think this is a really good solid episode, I just don't like re-watching it because it makes me so sad we loose Jo and Ellen--but it's really a very good episode. I love Crowley's introduction and Mark Sheppard hits every line perfectly. I love Cass and Jo and Ellen drinking together. And I love the bits with Jo and Dean, there's so much that could have been in those scenes and what helps sell the kiss filled with regrets later. I also like Meg in this episode. She's the perfect Kool-Aid drinking cult member, IMO. Sam and Dean are so very Sam and Dean--which is how I prefer them. The talk at the beginning about them sticking together; the way they are trying to save everyone but still get their chance at the Devil. Lots of good character stuff here. I especially love the stuff with Dean and Bobby over the radio. The way Bobby helps keep Dean head in the game is really some nice work from both Jim Beaver and Jensen. What I think makes this episode work so well for me is there isn't one person barking orders and telling everyone what to do. Each member of the team steps up when needed and contributes. Bobby steps up and helps Dean hold it together; Jo steps up and makes them see the reality of the situation; Ellen makes sure the plan will work; and so on. I love it when Team Free Will is a team. My only real complaint about the episode is Lucifer's monologuing. Sheesh, how many times do I have to hear the Devil's sad tale of woe. I get it, now shut the hell up! The good to end on? I think this is one of my favorite "last words" exchanges ever: Sam: Okay, last words? Dean: I think I'm good. Sam: Yeah, me too. Dean: Here goes nothing. Plus, I my itty-bitty heart grows three sizes when Dean tells the Devil to suck it.;) Edited October 10, 2014 by DittyDotDot 3 Link to comment
