  • A little boring and predictable

    Not one of the better episodes. A little boring and predictable.
  • Loved Dean sleeping around

    Brilliant. Bring back the boys that love girls, fighting evil and being brothers. I loved this episode. Although we didnt get shirtless Dean I still loved that he was being a guy who likes girls and this is normal, good story to tell.
  • nice

    very good love it
  • enjoyed this ep, but...

    While this season has been ok, the way the last season ended with all the angels falling to earth, it gave such high hopes, but they really have taken that anywhere. The writers had a good chance to return it to the level of the first four, maybe five seasons, but so far, all i can say is, at least it is a better season than the cheesy, not scary,leviathons.
  • Another Great Ep

    I enjoyed A Rock and a Hard Place. Maybe not as much as Bad Boys, but I felt it was well-written, especially Sam and Dean and their relationship. It felt like old school Supernatural, something I've sorely missed (and will be sorry to see fall by the wayside when the angels return next week sigh). It was wonderful to see Sheriff Mills again--I love her relationship with Sam. She seems to genuinely care for both boys, and that's something they badly need.

    The end was completely heartbreaking--I wish I could say I was surprised that Ezekiel isn't really a good guy, but he's an angel, so I guess it's to be expected. I can't wait til he's gone and Sam is back 100%, even tho I'm dreading the fight and recriminations when Sam finds out what Dean did. I really hope he understands why Dean felt he had to, and can forgive him for it.moreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Sam: Okay, so we have missing church folk and superstrength. Maybe angels harvesting vessels, could be a Buddy Boyle-type thing.
      Sheriff Jody: Wait... angels? You're joking.
      Dean: Don't get your pants on fire. They suck.

    • Sheriff Jody: Barb Blanton, our missing bride-to-be...
      Sam: Yeah?
      Sheriff Jody: Mom said she heard Barb and her fiancé in Barb's bedroom.
      Sam: Going at it.
      Sheriff Jody: Well, she said she heard sex noises, then Barb crying, then Neil telling Barb it didn't count because it was under 30 seconds.

    • Sam: So dragons are off the list.
      Sheriff Jody: Is there dragons? Those are a thing?
      Sam: Yeah. Too many things are things.

    • Suzy Lee: You're not like... the other guys in town, are you? You're kind of a... bad boy.
      Dean: I don't know. Why don't you ask me that in Spanish?
      Suzy Lee: ¿Eres un chico malo?
      Dean: Si.

    • Sam: Wait. Anything on a weapon?
      Sheriff Jody: Oak. Stained in virgin blood. Where are we gonna get a virgin?
      Sam: I'm a virgin!
      Sheriff Jody: I think we need the real McCoy here, Sam.
