    The dialogue in this episode was hilarious. It was a very pleasing filler.

    Good episode; and for some reason it felt like watching Buffy. Not just because Harry Groener, but overall the writing and the feeling of this episode was somehow different from many of the previous ones. But with just nine (?) episodes to go this season, I think it's time get into the heavy stuff soon.

    I completely agree. "Buffy" it definitely felt and we need to get to the harder stuff.

    I really enjoyed this one! Loved the sex/death scene felt like classic supernatural, this season has been a big step up from last year too imo.

    I did like the sex/death juxtaposition scene and the top of episode death scene (especially the guy's foot fetish painting--nice touch)

    I did not like the MOW --Amazons. It was just poorly conceived and written. Apparently every two years since time immemorial there has been a rash of sex related murders where the young successful alpha males have their hands and feet hacked off and the same occult symbol carved into their chests and no one's raised an alarm. Also poorly written thinly veiled Amazon detective. What local detective with four (rich, white, male) hacked up, carved up bodies, tells the FBI to "wrap it up, I have other cases"--what the Hell kinda city is Seattle anyways!!! Sam would have picked up on this in a heartbeat, Sam also would not have needed Coroner guy (liked him) to pick up the other "cold" cases connection--he could and would have GOOGLED it--for godsakes it was rashes of ritualistic identical mutilation murders two years a part in major cities. Also cases of ritual mutilation murders of young white successful people don't go COLD in two years!!! Artistic license is one thing, but this in my opinion was just sloppy, bad writing and no amount of cute one liners can cover it. Here's hoping for better. Btw it may be my fading memory, but I always thought Buffy was better than this--I'll have to breakout the DVD's.

    Oh I don't know since they travel around and police in diffrent cities tend to not share information so freely. Also, unless word was leaked to a tabloid or something I doubt the police where making information on these killings available to the public. I could see maybe a crazy website filled with nutjob oddities like that but I don't think it would be such common knowledge as you make it out to be. Also, that doesn't take into consideration effort to cover their tracks and having agents in place to destroy evidence and plant misleading information.

    One thing I would say is it's too bad they couldn't afford a cameo by Linda Carter but that might have made it a bit too obvious.

    Actually the information is readily available or would be. Interpol has an excellent police info system and has had for years. The American system is more decentralized at least until the last few decades, but we are talking about major cities (Seattle, Chicago, Miami) and major crimes. Non public crime details are exactly what is shared in these databases--like the database Sherrif Mills used in "Time after Time" all she entered was a keyword search "Fedora, Man Suit". Also sharing has become more and more wide spread even in smaller jurisdictions--the feds use a carrot and stick approach--they offer grants to set up data base access and input and punish lack of cooperation with loss of federal funding. So even if this was info that was held back it would still be readily available. However, this is not the kind of info that could be held back because its too obvious and too sensational. Tons of cops, csi's traipse through these crime scenes (and trust me cops love to gossip). In addition you have neighbors, bystanders, reporters, family, friends, coroners, morticians, etc. Sure they might be able to hold back a body was missing an organ, but both arms and legs--not in this day and age. Sorry the writing was lame.

    You're also forgetting that the family might use whatever wealth and influence they have to try and keep it on the qt and avoid a family scandel. In any case if you buy that this is a world where vampires can run around feeding on people, werewolves can rip people apart and it not raise some eyebrows then yeah Amazons can commit ritual murder and skate on by. Non-hunters in this world are just toatlly clueless and don't put things together too well. What else is new?

    Not a hard call to make since it's about the only personal possession of his they have and he's not too likely to be bound by one of his books (unless he got a paper cut and bled on a page or licked his finger to turn a page or something).


    They are going to need to handle all of this very carefully because it could very easily go wrong and turn into an awful idea. Still, they have a long history of taking what sounds like a bad idea and making it work so there's that...

    Valuablelesson here: always ignore twitter and never stop watching "Supernatural".

    I could have sworn a bunch of us were talking about it for awhile, at least since Dean's beer got drunk somehow.
