Sam and Dean investigate a case where a taxidermist is literally constricted to death by a mysterious man. The only witness to the crime is a German Sheperd, who after being sent to a dog kennel, witnesses a second murder. Sam suggests a spell to help communicate with canines, mentioning it may backfire, Dean jumps at the opportunity and starts to talk with the dog. However the spell has a slight side effect and Dean starts to show dog-like traits. After some interrogations they find a local chef who, in order to slowly heal his illness, consumes animal organs and uses Shaman magic to incorporate their abilities.

I really enjoyed this episode, it had a really mysterious feel to the killer, you never really saw him fully when he murdered someone so you kept guessing at what he was during the early scenes. I was a little sceptical at first when I heard this episode involved Dean talking to dogs, however it was done in a really fun way. The dialogue was funny, interrogating other dogs and when Dean starting acting like a dog. I liked the whole idea of the guy using magic and consuming different animal organs to inherit their traits, he was creepy and refreshing for the Supernatural universe. Ezekiel had to help Sam again, for a brief moment and I think Sam is starting to get suspicious. I really hope they develop something interesting with this connection and not just resolve it too easily like some of the problems in earlier seasons. Im still waiting for something good to happen with Dean's character, even though he was the main focus for this episode, this season still feels like its all Sam orientated but we are still early in this season yet. Overall i think this episode felt like a good classic. It had a cool, interesting "monster", a very different twist for Supernatural but at the same time, was light hearted and had a few funny moments. I hope we get more like this.
