Things I loved, character by character

Sam
Yay! The backstory we've all been waiting for! Not to mention the confirmation that Sam isn't a rapist, thank you very very much. I liked the fact that he immediately told Ruby to get out of that secretary, and that he even criticized her for possessing the maid temporarily. And it's good to finally find out why he trusts her: because she gave him the same advice Dean would. Oh, SAM.

I completely loved the fact that he tried to trade places with Dean. (Oh, SAM!!!) And does the fact that his crossroad demon is male tell us something? Aren't they supposed to be people you desire???

There was a ton of fanservice in this episode, wasn't there? (THANK YOU SERA GAMBLE): Pool hustling, and Sam getting to sew himself up all manly-like, just like he did when Dean was dead in "Mystery Spot," not to mention the SMOKING HOT SHIRTLESS SEX SCENE. It's just too bad Dean didn't appreciate it as much, or we might have gotten to see more of it. Though I love the hilarious explanation for why Dean was turned off in this review.

And as for all complaints that Sam is committing necrophilia, please remember Ruby's host body was barely dead for a minute--it's not like she animated a cold corpse, or something. I also like this comment thread which points out, we don't make these complaints when people get involved with vampires, who are even more dead.

Dean
Oh, Dean, what did you do in hell? I love the tease of the mystery, but I hope we're going to find out soon--especially who this new powerful demon Alistair was.

"Dean Winchester is saved"--wow. Angels all gossip about you, and you're such a threat to Lilith that she'll keep you in hell despite Sam's offer to trade places, even though Ruby's convinced Sam's the only one who can kill her. What is your role in the cosmic scheme of things?

Your half-assed non-apology to Ruby made me laugh and laugh and laugh, it was so you. And I was amused about your whining to Sam about your dislocated shoulder when he was sewing up his own wounds. Dude! You survived hell, you can take a little pain.

Ruby

Dear Ruby, I don't care what anyone says, I like the actress who is playing you now, SO THERE. (It doesn't hurt that you look good sexxing Sam up, I have to say). OMG, I loved all your lines about being socially conscious and recycling bodies and Al Gore would approve. Hee! And I strongly approve of you keeping Sam alive--and who could blame you falling for him, as you obviously have?

Of course, you've had sex with Sam, which probably means you're going to die next week (I AM UNSPOILED, THIS IS SHEER SPECULATION), which will be sad. I hope you don't end up in hell again being tortured by Lilith just because Uriel is a prick who wouldn't know an ally if his life depended on it.

Castiel
Dear Castiel, you're not going to have much luck convincing the Winchesters to sacrifice an innocent. Ruby tried that last season (and at least she is, y'know, A DEMON, so you can excuse her logic) and failed, so I seriously doubt you're going to succeed. You might at least want to try the "she's going to end up with our Father in heaven" spiel, if you want to persuade them. However, I will say I am willing to cut you a little more slack with the whole demon war thing now that I know about the 600 potential seals. YIKES. That's a lot of ground to cover.

Anna
You didn't get to do much more than be exposition girl this week, but next week looks like it'll be awesome. YAY!!

It is kind of surprising--and reads almost as if the writers want to leave the existence of heaven unconfirmed, which is deeply weird since they've confirmed the existence of hell.

This whole episode, I don't know, gave me the creeps or left a bad taste in my mouth or something, and I'm not sure why. (I said, "You suck," very loudly at the end of the tape, and I hope that didn't weird out the neighbors.)

It seemed weird and out of character to me for Dean to say "BFF."

I'm sorry to hear that. I think that's typical of Sera Gamble episodes, though--people tend to either really really love them or really really hate them.
