- Do you feel how empty you are?
Finally, the cat's out of the sack. So Dean's stuck with the soulless guy. Took them all long enough to find out. ;P Speaking of, there's been some discussing this with raths_kitten and the definition or the function of a soul. I mean, isn't Sam too good for being soulless? Can one simply equate soul with conscience? There have been references to Sam not knowing right from wrong but it's lacking consistence. Clearly, he is aware of the "bad guys" and what his mission is. It's just that his means got more reckless. IDK, just brain storming here.
Kind of made me think back to Buffy and how downright evil soulless Angelus was as opposed to haunted-by-the-knowledge-of-all-the-ones-h
e-killed Angel. Hmm. Well, it's just different concepts, I can go with that.
Either way, my sick fangirl self can't wait for them to return Sam's tortured soul. May there be loads of angst and puppy eyes. Just don't make me wait till the end of the season for that to happen, okay?
- Me Charlie, you angels?
Aside from the above rambling, I really loved this episode. Though it's still a bit bumpy at times, I felt like the episode was told from both Sam and Dean's perspectives. They're a team again and they can still kick ass. We're even back to Dean flying around the room and Sam being choked. Maybe I missed that most of all. Yes, I'm shallow.
And it's largely back to their old roles. Dean being the level-headed
leaderprotector and Sam being the one that everything evil has got a plan for. They're at their best when working that formula IMO. At least it was one of the major reasons I fell in love with this show to begin with.

I wonder what it is that Crowley's controlling Samuel with? There's got to be more to this. I smell a tragedy waiting to happen.

First I got to say, I adore Crowley. He's sarcastic, ambitious (I mean, you go working your way up in Hell. That takes some patience and tricks), has wicked powers and a cute accent. In short, he's probably the closest thing to a shady ally they're going to get. It's got some benefits. Which is fine and I enjoy his scenes heaps but I'm missing the presence of a real menace this season. Something frightening looming over their heads. Something epic, something dark. I think overstreets would agree. ;P
In short, they've got their mojo back. ♥
