SPN 8xwhaaaa?

AWKWARD. *says in a sing-songy voice*

*scrubs brain with Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and shuffles away to stick head in a paper bag and die of second-hand embarrassment*

I didn't buy the weird reincarnation of Dean in this episode.  It was like it was supposed to be funny, but really it was sort of painfully out of place and trying too hard.  Poor Dean, being the funny man to Sam's straight man, he seems to get an unfair amount of contortionist characterization in the name of cheap, off-putting humor.  This episode gave me the same sour aftertaste that "Caged Heat" did where all the sexist, derogatory language made me cringe and do a double take at the writers of the episode who were making Sam and Dean act very much not like Sam and Dean.

On a positive note, I liked the first scene with Sam and the familiar in her dog form and her perfectly haha ta-da reveal with Dean's arrival.  Also that actress was gorgeous and so was that doberman.

That's about it.  Next week has to be better, right?  *cringes*  Anyone know who wrote next week's episode?

ETA: A perfect visual summary of this episode (ha, my mad Photoshop skills): ;)

I loved the opening banter and the dog-to-girl appearance. It unfortunately went downhill from there. It was definitely a let down after last weeks stellar episode.

It was definitely a let down after last weeks stellar episode.

And maybe that's why I was so disappointed with this episode. I thought we'd finally found our footing this season and the momentum was building beautifully--it felt like the story was actually moving forward instead of just twisting around itself.

This episode was actually supposed to air before last episode, but the script wasn't ready. So maybe a different air date would've been more forgiving? I don't know....

I didn't realize it was supposed to air before last week's episode. That actually makes sense, because I agree, it felt as though we lost all we had gained in "Trial and Error". Last week Sam described Dean as a genius (as we all know he is), yet this week he didn't know what a witch's familiar was? I just really hated how awkwardly they portrayed him throughout the entire episode. Hopefully next week will put us back on track.
