Love the Sam Dean tension spilling over the episode
10 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This episode is already in the list of my favs in Supernatural history. I mean common, it was so smoking hot to see the brothers fight each other out verbally & physically in a suite ! - I mean, the visual effect was entertaining :) Coming to Garth - the comedy factor is added. & there was a gud Soundgarden score - the SPN choice of music being almost absent thru S7.

Minus point - the end reminded me a bit 2much of a similar conversation in S5 E5 (Fallen Idol). However, the look of desperation that flashes on Dean's face as he wants to hang on to his brother & make it like the good old days is so moving; esp the fact that despite nodding his head to accept Sam as he is now, it is clear that Dean wants to just shrug off every thing and sweep it under the mat.
