Aah, Ben Edlund, that scamp who’s always shining lights into the underbelly of this show and the nature of storytelling itself. This episode is about subtext, and about why trusting the surface level read of the story will get you killed and replaced by mandroids leave you confused. The real story is never just what’s happening on the surface. And this entire episode serves as an excellent reminder of that fact.

Plus, Sam being a dick actually gets a guy Dean liked killed (there’s reasons I am not a Sam Girl... I can’t forgive him for this as easily as Dean seems to...). Yeah I know he’s doing the best he can while operating on the presumption there’s nothing he can do to change his “destiny” to turn evil, or whatever he’s built up this vague warning into in his own head because he actually has no literal concrete information on why Dean might have to kill him yet... like... just that vague ominous warning. And yet Sam takes that with both hands and shapes his entire identity around the fact that he will have no choice but to become evil, like he has no free will to choose, like, not to do that...


Meanwhile, Dean still doesn’t get a vacation, even after Sam’s poor choices end up inadvertently putting them back on the radar of the FBI. They really should’ve just gone to the beach instead.
