splendidly done
18 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a solid example of truly brilliant writing, acting and the magic that can happen when all the pieces fit. Almost all other reviews mention Jensen's heart-wrenching acting and I must concur. He's very good at what he does. Near the end when Dean must chose I was in tears. It was evident what his choice would be but I could FEEL his pain. Most of season 2 seemed to build up to just how much Dean and Sam have been through and how much they are giving up by doing what they know they are meant to do. To see an episode like this seems at first to be cruel but Sam says it best... "it's all worth it". Indeed it is! This = favourite episode. Just WOW!
