  • More salting of the bones and virtually nothing here that moves the arc forward - yawwwn.

    Far be it from me to take the high road and pass up such an easy pun, but this episode simply didn't hook me in to an admittedly all too familiar tale. The problem this show faces begins at the start of every episode. No, not the pre-title teaser. It's the 'previously on' segment which reiterates time and time again that the brothers are in search of their father and their mother's killer. So it's understandably irritating when the boys become distracted with meaningless monsters like in this episode, there's nothing propelling the season forward, in fact this episode takes a few steps backwards in terms of pacing. The weakest and most straight-forward episode so far. The script even lacked Dean's sharp tongue. Disappointing.
