So far, Definitely The Best Episode of Season 8
31 October 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What can I say, the episode has everything: romance, bromance, drama, and action thrills to get your blood pumping. The episode had everything that originally hooked me to Supernatural. This episode is more like the Supernatural I have grown to love.

What worked: -Loved the flashbacks to purgatory -Benny is awesome and very bad ass -A few good laughs

What did not work: -How can Dean sneak up on vampires if they can hear a human's beating heart blocks away? It doesn't make sense in light of previous episodes.

Still a 10/10!

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Go Supernatural!
