Fun and surprising
3 November 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I found this episode was pretty uncommon. Of course we are used to watch some fun episodes from time to time along the season. This one was one of them. I loved the cast, I must say. Old Dean was brilliant and the wizard was outstanding.

We can think of the whole plot of the episode as an excuse to show Bobby's despair and frustration, ironically transferred to Dean somehow; or the fact that in every game luck has an important part to play. No matter how much we know, which our condition is or how well we play, everything is in the air till the game is over.

So I enjoyed watching Dean's condition and how he deals with it, but again what really impressed me was the wizard. That was a very powerful character and I hope he appears again along the season.
