I have to admit, I always get excited when the “previously on” includes really old stuff. And going way back to season 2 for the stuff about Crossroads Demons and Hellhounds made my day.
This episode had what we love: Big, emotional speeches. First Dean with his whole thing about how he’s closing the Gates of Hell because he knows it will kill him and he wants to protect Sam. Classic Dean. Also, we all knew the moment he said it that Sam was gonna be the one to close the Gates.
But it was Sam’s speech at the end that really got to me. The fact that he needs to tell Dean that people love him and he deserves to live and fight was great. When he said that Dean is the best Hunter ever, even better than dad, I got chills. Really great, touching stuff.
The Hellhound stuff was amusing, if only to count how many different nicknames Dean could come up with. Clifford the Big Dead Dog was obviously the best.
Although Dean must be slipping, because it was VERY obvious the ranchy lady made the deal. She was living like it was her last day on Earth, though I suppose a woman throwing herself at Dean isn’t that uncommon.
My final thought: Was it just me or did Dean look a lot sexier with glasses? And Sam just looked kind of silly.
