Storyline

When Sam and Dean investigate the disappearance of a man who was looking into a tourist attraction known as "The Mystery Spot" -- where the laws of physics don't apply -- Sam is thrown into a repeating loop, living the same day over and over, and watching Dean die each time in a different way as Sam avoids the method that killed him the last time.

It's Groundhog Day...the Supernatural way!
3 May 2012 | by (Moncton, NB, Canada) – See all my reviews

Summary: It's Groundhog Day...the Supernatural way! *** This review may contain spoilers ***

We've all heard of the premise: a character is forced to relive the same day over and over again, with unpleasant (to put it mildly) consequences. The short lived Daybreak covered this very idea, with not exactly the best results. Supernatural tackles the plot line, with hilarious, but also heartbreaking results.

It's Tuesday, a seemingly normal one for Sam and Dean. Until Dean is shot and killed by a disgruntled shop owner. As his brother dies in his arms, Sam is suddenly jolted back to where he was before: in the brothers' motel room, with Dean jokingly lip synching to Asia's "Heat of the Moment". And so it continues. For 100 days in a row, Sam must relive his brother die in numerous ways, at first tragic, but soon quite hilarious (including one hilarious moment involving a seemingly innocent dog, watch and you'll find out for yourself). Eventually, Sam manages to convince the skeptical Dean that he is reliving the same day, and discover that a familiar face is the cause of the mayhem.

"Mystery Spot" is one of my favorite episodes, hilarious and touching at the same time. Jeremy Carver (set to be showrunner, replacing Sera Gamble) has written some of the funniest moments in Supernatural history, creating the most imaginative, and hilarious, methods of killing Dean possible. Half way through the episode I was laughing hysterically! Jensen Ackles uses his typical slapstick physical humour to his advantage. I've commented on how amazing Ackles is at the sad, emotional moments (see "AHBH II", "No Rest for the Wicked", and "Swan Song", to name a few) but he is also great at making the audience laugh, and "Mystery Spot" is no exception. Jared Padalecki is equally solid. Sam's reactions to his brother's deaths, especially the first and final tragic moment, are amazing. When he holds Dean's limp body and whimpers, "I'm supposed to wake up", you share his loss. As the episode reaches its climax, and Sam is begging for Dean's life, Padalecki demonstrates the brotherly love, the intense bond shared by the brothers, in three simple words, the same echoed by Dean in "AHBL II": "he's my brother." These three words sum up how the brothers feel for each other, that love which brings loyal viewers back for more.

Amazing episode, easy 9.
