The Bad – Really Supernatural? You had to make a crack at Christianity? That makes no sense in the cosmology you set up.
And we see the Winchesters forgetting equipment they’ve had in the past (again).
Another high body count.
Except for Bobby, of course. Which don’t get me wrong, I love Bobby (reminds me of some people I know), but at this point his plot armor is getting ridiculous. If you want to shake things up and prove “nobody’s safe” – then you almost have to kill Bobby. Would that they killed him and force the brothers to rely upon a new ally (Rufus? Grandpa? Cute cousin?) to shake things up.
The Good – Since the source of the Christianity mouthing is the main bad guy, we could pass it off as a lie.
The trucker actually being a decent man & Christian was actually a nice twist for once. Nice for us to be reminded of what the Winchesters are fighting for now and then.
Ok, I did enjoy the tributes to the Thing and Star Trek 2: Wrath of Kahn.
Rufus is so awesome. Also nice to see everybody taking some joy in their work again. (I mean, it’s not nice what Hunters do, but once upon a time, Dean & others took what enjoyment they could from it.)
You know… that distant relative actually seems like a better fit for Dean than even Lisa was. Shame she’s dead.
All in all…
This 2nd half of the season is shaping up to be at least of more consistent quality than the 1st half.
