Great location for filming, interesting case and monster, nicely creepy visuals….all good, BUT I don’t like this episode because I thought the writers went WAY off field with Sam’s mean reactions towards Dean in this.
Calling Dean pathetic and unthinking and being John’s “good little soldier” just following orders….And then SHOOTING HIM, TWICE???
It went too far.
And the lame excuse “I couldn’t control it” at the end from Sam was way too little too late.
I know they were still defining the characters at that point, but making Sam willing and able to shoot Dean even if FUMING angry is as out of character to me as (much later) Dean holding a gun on an innocent girl and screaming at her.
The whole thing doesn’t work for me and I still don’t understand why they thought it was necessary.
