Are you ready for some Nazis! Post your thoughts on tonight’s episode or click HERE for my full recap.
That was super fun! Who doesn’t love an episode all about killing Nazi bastards?
First, the Men of Letters HQ is pretty cool. Any place where the shower has great water pressure, the scimitars are sharp and there are a million books for Sam to geek out over is a great place to set up shop. Hopefully this can serve as a home base for more than half a season, because the set design is gorgeous.
Also worth noting that it’s located in Lebanon, Kansas, which is officially the exact geographic center of the contiguous United States. I’m sure that’s why they picked it, but I’m curious to see if it will be an important fact.
All the Nazi stuff was cool too. For instance, did you know the Thule Society is totally a real thing? That makes it a little bit more interesting, especially for history buffs.
And the pure joy of Sam and Dean getting to shoot those Nazi bastards in the heads? This is the kind of Indiana Jones/Inglourious Basterds style Nazi-hunting that I love.
Then there’s the Golem, which ruled. Not only was it huge and powerful, but also funny. Wouldn’t you watch a show about Aaron and his Golem hunting down Nazis? Because I would. Especially if you add a shiksa girlfriend.
Overall, a standard, wonderful, weird, wildly entertaining Ben Edlund episode.
Oh yeah, and let’s not forget the scene where Aaron claimed he was cruising Dean in a bar. Because that was priceless.
