Well. First the bad. Wasn't thrilled about the sex scene with Portia and James. I get why they did it but I just found it unnecessary because we could have known that same information from the discussion she had with the boys. It seemed out of place for Supernatural. Not the fact that it was a sex scene but that it was between 2 one off characters and it went on for more than a minute or two. Maybe just me. Not trying to be a prude or anything.
Second. Did not love the astral projection thing. Isn't this something they would have known witches could do? They have come across many witches in the past.
Small details though. Overall I did like the episode. I LOVED Dean pretty much the entire time. He just could not stop thinking about her and James. haha! And we never got the answer to which came first, girl or dog. It will forever haunt Dean.
Loved the opening with them arguing over the Three Stooges. So brotherly. They are getting back on track finally.
And wow just when I thought it was just going to be a light, fun MOTW episode. BAM with all the worst hurtful flashback montage ever. WTF writers. It's like they just threw that in there to mess with us. "hey let's make them all cry"..... not cool.
And I loved the car talk at the end of course. Dean trusting Sam is good... but of course Sam is hiding the side effects from Dean. For once though, I get it. Usually I get so bent out of shape about them constantly hiding things from each other but here, I understand why.
