  • A tear and then a smile :)

    For Dean, Sam trumps any girls, first kiss(?), school dance, normal life, second chance.

    Sam: Dean... thank you. For always being there, for having my back. Look, I know it hasn't always been easy.

    Dean: I don't know what the hell you're talking about.
  • Ghost story.

    8.5
    We find out a little about Deans past when he returns to a children's home to fight a ghost.
  • Worst Episode ever!

    I'm sorry, but "Let's make up some secret past-item so Sam and Dean can repeat-bond" OLD & monster-of-the-week has been done before, also.

    Two months that Dean was at the home and he got on the Wrestling Team and won a championship! That was just one of the many poorly written "plops" devices.

    The young Dean had the mannerisms, etc. down perfect, though.
  • This was a bittersweet episode

    Dylan Everett did a wonderful job, the study session definitely paid off.



    The episode gave so much insight into why Dean is the man he is today. It explained even further how it's possible that Dean didn't turn to John - a bitter callous shell of a man. It's because he had several examples in his life to show him that just because shit happened to you doesn't mean you need to harden up and stop giving a damn about others.



    It also explained his attitude towards relationship. Because his first love taught him that when you get close to people you get hurt. So he stopped getting close to people. Except for Sam. And i think he didn't go with John because he was afraid John would hurt Sammy but because he knew if he stayed Sam wouldn't have anyone. Because neither of them had John since the fire.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Young Dean: I want to be a rock star, but... I also really like cars.
      Young Robin: Being a mechanic seems rough.
      Young Dean: What? No, no. Not at all. Cars are freaking cool as hell. Fixing them is like a puzzle, and the best part is when you're done, they leave, and you're not responsible for them anymore.

    • Sam: Dean... thank you.
      Dean: For what?
      Sam: For always being there, for having my back. Look, I know it hasn't always been easy.
      Dean: I don't know what the hell you're talking about.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Dean: All right, Casper... where are you at?
      Referencing the animated character Casper The Friendly Ghost. Casper was first developed as a series of theatrical shorts. Casper later appeared in comic books, a few television series, and finally a full length theatrical movie.

    • Dean: So give me your best Kung Fu Grip.
      Referencing the G.I. Joe Action Figures. Cashing in on the Chinese martial art movie craze and the popularity of actors such as Bruce Lee, Hasbro introduced the "kung fu grip" to the G.I. Joe action figures in the late 70s. The kung fu grip was essentially a soft rubber hand allowing the figure to "grasp" objects.

    • Dean: We got ourselves a Damien on our hands?
      Referencing the 1976 movie The Omen and the remake, The son of the Devil and a jackal, Damien is destined to rule the world as the Anti-Christ and has supernatural powers as well as a constant creepy vibe.
