    I loved this episode,because it was so unusual
  • Sam gets "lovejacked" by the most pathetic, annoying and vomit inducing character in creation.

    5.0
    The only saving grace (and the only reason this ep didn't get a 2) was pretty much due to the last five minutes in which we learned why the boys haven't been running into a whole lot of demons lately.



    Turns out Crowley was a wee bit insulted by Dick and kinda really wants the boys to take those smug leviathans out of the game. (I can completely understand... after all, don't we all choose the devil we know over the one we don't?).



    Other than that... I will say at least Dean tried to be supportive. I'm a little surprised he didn't try investigating a little harder though. It was just really poorly written.



    As always Jensen and Jared, special love to you both and apologies to you both on behalf of writers everywhere.moreless
  • the bride is comeing....

    9.5
    In my summary: I like when the eps are comic, I loved the tall tales, as well as the eps dean of a thousand deaths. Many people may have felt kind of eps to complete the season, but the big hook for me and it was clear at the end that Dean does not know what else to do, after all his father trained him to look after your brother and now he realizes that their mission is over and he has a purpose in life, or at least will have to find a will or living a life that is not yours. returning the particular liked to see the back of the blonde version beck ahahha, well she made the dream of every samgirl marry sam, great feat girl. How the demons, like everything has a supernatural reason for being, they withdrew by order of the king of hell for the boys end up with an unusual enemy (leviatans) who knows a possible alliance. Oh yeah what the hell was Bobby doing in Oregon, but garth made ​​me remember the good time of our bad-ass ash, want to see him again playing with the boys. ha yeah I loved seeing the dean ahaahhaa a strip club, he followed the advice to the letter of ellen and sam call the camping of Hippo was hilarious. Oops, the opening was fantastic with the exploding cakeWell the next eps think will please the Greeks, Trojans and Bahia hahahha.kiss cau!moreless

    Season 7, Time For A Wedding-When Sam teams up with a familiar face, Dean is forced to team up with a laid-back hunter, Garth, and ends up working at cross purposes to his brother.

    With a season so far that has a disappointing arc and a so-so run of episodes, "Season 7, Time For A Wedding" is kinda refreshing. Sure, we've seen plenty of Crossroads demon plot before but thanks mostly because of two charming guest stars, this episode is . One being DJ Qualls (Road Trip, Hustle and Flow) and Emily Perkins returns as the hilariously obsessed Supernatural fan Becky Rosen. Both characters steal the spotlight from the brothers this week and the episode is all better for it. Considering how tedious the brothers' current issues are, it's nice to see them mostly separate for one episode, having to deal with the humorous shenanigans of their temporary partners this episode. Becky is one of those hopelessly romantic geeks who can't help but love. Sure turning Sam into her love slave was wrong but throughout the episode, you can't help but still feel bad for her considering she was the laughingstock in high school and doesn't seem to have much of a life. Emily Perkins just shines in this role and I love every minute of when she's on screen, especially her tweeting nearly every moment she has with Sam. I also loved Dean's reaction to Sam's sudden marriage.

    Speaking of Dean, he had his own problems to deal with when patterned up with Garth. DJ Qualls is pretty much known for playing these kinds of roles but he does it so well. He's the perfect goofball to Dean's straight man/tough guy act. I especially loved his line about saving day just in time to get home for America's Got Talent! lol Another great appearance was from Crowley....whose now sporting a beard! You gotta love his whole speech about Hell having integrity and saying it's better than Wall Street. Overall, I was very pleased with this one. Some great, genuine humor and character interaction. Now if they can make those Leviathans interesting again, this season would be in good shape.moreless
  • Some fun insanity with an interesting case file thrown in.

    I guess whether you like this episode depends a lot on whether or not you think Becky is funny. I do, I like both the character and the concept of a meta character, so I was really tickled by the whole thing. Almost all the comments I've seen on Twitter also loved the episode, so I guess I'm not alone.

    Let me start by saying there's no way they are trying to "wean us off Sam and Dean" and replace them with Becky and Garth. Supernatural cannot exist without Sam and Dean: they know that as well as we do.

    They're just giving Jensen and Jared a bit of a breather. The boys work 14-20 hour days with very short weekends because Fridays always turn into what they call "Fraturdays" on the Supernatural set. When there are only two leads on a one-hour show, the schedule is grueling, and the boys have been at it for seven years now. It's not unusual for shows, especially in the later years, to deliberately write scripts that give the actors a lighter workload once in a while. Doctor Who even has regular "Doctor-light" episodes in which the Doctor makes no more than a cameo. So no need to worry, Becky and Garth will never be more than recurring characters. (Actually, we've probably seen the last of Becky, the way they ended it. Sam made it pretty clear he didn't want to see her again.)

    I liked how they took Becky's crush on Sam and turned it not only into an episode-long joke, but also into a cool case file. As I have said before, I love the detective work that goes into solving supernatural mysteries, and I love it when the mystery gradually unfolds and I don't know what's really going on until the end. This certainly fit the bill. I didn't figure out it was a cheating crossroads demon with an accomplice until the red eyes were revealed. The fact it was the accomplice doing the killing threw me off the scent as he didn't seem to have any connection to Guy. It seemed like Guy was working alone and was maybe a witch, as he was dealing love potion--which turned out just to be the bait to lure Becky in for the deal. And I loved Dean and Garth figuring out it was the domineering wife who made a deal, and not the CEO.

    I agree it seemed as though Garth was being introduced to us a new recurring character, rather than being used as a one-off guest star. Everyone I saw tweeting about it were clamoring for more Garth, and DJ Qualls (the actor) and Jim Michaels (executive producer) both hinted we might be seeing more of him. I think that was the point, to leave us wanting more. And when Dean said "you don't suck" and Garth answered "that's the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me" I didn't want that to be the last we ever saw of him. He's adorable.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • There are two victims, the lottery winner and the baseball player. Both of those are on "Sam and Becky's Investigation" board, and the baseball player is clearly labeled Victim 2. However, right after Marsha avoids death, the episode cuts to Sam having another headache. There's a spot for Victim 3 and what appears to be a framed newspaper headline. However, at this point there is no Victim 3, and given that seconds ago Marsha evaded death, there wouldn't be any newspaper article about her near-fatal accident.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Sam: I got you a present.
      Becky: His and hers fake ID?!? Oh!

    • Dean: I assume that Bobby filled you in on the road.

      Garth: Oh, no offense. We were just wondering if you get here by nefarious means.

      Dean: He jokes. He's a--he's a jokester. Let's, uh, rewind.

    • Dean: Okay, you know what? I'm trying to save you from a really bad accident.
      Marsha: Are you threatening me?
      Dean: No. No, I'm--I'm pointing out a pattern. Why do people keep thinking I'm threatening them?
      Garth: Because it sounded like a threat, dude.

    • Becky: Whatever is killing people... it's something else.
      Sam: It's never something else! When are there ever two crazy things in town at the same time?

    • Becky: But I thought we were besties.
      Guy: Ohh, honey. That is so depressingly "Becky." I mean, it's--you're so pathetic, it actually loops back around again to cute.

      Becky: You're Crowley.
