Why is the rum gone?

So, SPN

This one was better than I expected. Granted, maybe a bit heavy on Benny`s backstory but since I like the character, I didn`t mind overly much. The maker/old man wasn`t the most inspired actor but I did like the one who played Andrea. Their scenes weren`t half-bad.

And Dean (as well as Benny) being badass in the vampire nest was fun to see. I missed badassery like this in the last few Seasons.

Also liked how Dean`s loyalty to his friends, or the ones he considers such, was emphasized. I`ve always liked that about his character. And once more with the stalwart resolution that Cas was coming with them if he wanted or not. Aww. Cute, too, that Dean was really won over when Benny saved Cas.

I`m happy Benny isn`t shaping up to be Gluby 2.0. Saw it, disliked it, no need for a replay. I don`t need the character to be some fluffy bunny but it would have been too on the nose and silly for him to have a secret world-domination-agenda for escaping from Purgatory. Especially since Dean ending up there and all was just a great big coincidence.

I wish the Purgatory flashbacks were longer and more pronounced. Sure, so far it is just fighting in the woods but it`s not like they couldn`t do more and I giggled over the threeway little snarkfest. Dean snarks at Benny about the value of human life, Benny snarks right back on which species killed more humans and poor Cas was forced to concede the point, statistically speaking. Hee. He sounded so miserable. For once he even understood the undertones of the convo and was loath to agree with Benny on anything but just couldn`t help himself and his statistics. *pets him*

Besides, Cas and Benny fighting over Dean basically? Teehee. My heart belongs firmly to Dean/Cas but that doesn`t mean I don`t enjoy a little side-action every now and then.

Oh, and the Leviathans were about ten trillion times cooler in that short blip in the episode than about 99 % onscreen in Season 7.

The Amelia/Sam flashbacks? Seemed to come out of some romcom with the meet cute and everything. I adore the dog but unless he gets a Supernatural storyline, this is not going to hold my interest.

Still all in all, quite liked it.

Dread next week, though. Written by a write I hate, features a character that annoys me and is apparently dealing with stuff that I have very little hope won`t suck to the high heavens. Yippie. *sarcasm*

I very much loved the badassery and snarkfest as well in this episode. Maybe in the next we'll finally find out what happened to Cas...or, you know, not, because they still need to cover some more miles of enemy-packed woods.

But what I really came here for: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, astri13!!
May there be awesome Dean/Cas fanfic (and CAKE, of course!) in your life! ^^

Heh. I mean I`m spoiled to the high heavens but they are keeping Cas`story as a big mystery this year.
