Supernatural - "Rock and a Hard Place" - 11/26/13

Well. That might have been the most unsexy sex I've seen on this show. At least last season with Sam and Amelia we just got the awkward kiss but this. Well.. I just don't know what to make of it. The entire lead up to it was so awkward to me. And not in the usual good way Dean is awkward. It was almost like bad acting on Jensen’s part. I can only assume it’s because of the absolute lack of chemistry with him and the actress. I wasn’t feeling it. At all. And I'm sorry this is superficial of me and maybe just me but...
Spoiler:
...the actress 1. isn't that hot 2. didn't have the great bod I was expecting for some built up fantasy porn star, it looked like Jensen struggled when he was picking her up 3. wasn't a good actress IMO at all

Okay that aside, I did like how Vesta called Sam out on his insides being dead. That's twice now. Sam get a friggin clue here. Ugh. It was odd though because obviously not the same scenario with Sam but that scene reminded me so much of Veritas in You Can't Handle The Truth calling out Soulless Sam. Creepy.

And Dean trying to tell Sam was heartbreaking. He knows this is all going to blow up in his face and now he can't seem to do anything about it. I'm a bit tired of Zeke popping in and out whenever he wants (although for the love of all that is holy, Jared does that transition so well it's astounding to me). It also seems from the previews that

it's all coming to a head with Zeke!!!
I'm scared for next week. It's the winter finale and it's going to be harsh.

Thoughts?

I kept thinking "Dude, text him" when Sam was calling Dean and getting ignored. That's on top of Dean ignoring Sam when there's an unknown monster around.

As a red blooded heterosexual male, I'm going to have to disagree with your no.s 1 & 2.

Although I suspect that they should have titled this episode "50 Shades of Dean".

I liked seeing Mills again and didn't have a huge problem with the story but again, nothing about this episode really leaps out at me.

This season has been bugging me some though.
I like it but I don't love it so far.
There seems to be something missing and I can't put my finger on it but the writing doesn't seem up to the level of previous seasons.

It's not bad but when I'm seeing Person of Interest blowing away Supernatural story wise, I start getting concerned.

Yeah, that made no sense whatsoever considering that she was a reformed, born again virgin.

I'm pretty tired of the Sam getting recharged from within while Dean lies to him about it subplot.

And Blondie was hot.

How else would Dean have found out about her past in a way that would be obvious to the viewer?

I think it's the lack of Sam and Dean bonding. I loved the bunker at first but now I'm not so sure. I miss them in the Impala on the road hotel to hotel and even though we got a tiny bit of that here it wasn't the same. It's definitely a 10000x better than the first half of last season though so I'll take it. Plus this coming winter finale episode is going to kill.

Ha! That's the thing though, this show never used to rely so heavily on the obvious did it??

Perhaps she was keeping it around to remind her of what she didn't want to become again?

Kinda of a meh episode. No Cas or Crowley. And it's somewhat unbelievable that Sam hadn't heard of Vesta. She's pretty prominent in the Roman pantheons, not to mention the Vestal Virgins.

Anything other than the way they handled it. I admit to being dumb but not that dumb.
