Not exactly what I was hoping for...
28 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the promo already spoiled to the audience, Garth (aka the new Bobby) is a werewolf. Sam and Dean (reluctantly) start working together to figure out what is really going on.

There were a handful of things I enjoyed about this episode. I did enjoy having Garth back, since he did vanish out of the blue last season, leaving Kevin to fend for himself. It was good to have some answers. I enjoyed some of the Sam and Dean moments where they talk about what happened and "deal" with their issues (the Winchester way). As for the case itself, well, it definitely felt like a filler. At no point in this episode, besides the Dean and Sam moments, did I think "wow this is important".

The idea of "friendly monsters" has been a bit of a theme the last few seasons, with the occasional monster being nice to humans. And while I am all for friendly monsters and side-characters, this episode did nothing to pull me in and make me care about the people (or rather, werewolves) in this episode. There have been times in the past where single-episode characters tugged at my heartstrings and left me feeling emotionally attached to them by the end. I'm not sure what it was about the characters in this, but I didn't care much for them. I couldn't bring myself to care about who was the bad guy, who was the good guy, or even who died in the crossfire.

Something else that bothered me was the really bad teeth and eyes of the werewolves. We've had werewolves in previous Supernatural seasons, and even though it was often clear that they had fangs just put on top of their teeth, they never looked awful. The teeth and eyes of this episode reminded me of something I might see a child wearing on Halloween. Which was especially strange because at one point we see a CGI version of werewolf fangs and eyes, which looked really good. The only thing I can conclude is that they used up their whole budget on that one scene and were forced to use plastic fangs for the rest of the episode.

After an episode where Dean gets the Mark of Cain, how can the writers expect me to honestly care about a few werewolves sitting around a piano singing songs? I would much rather see them tracking down a character like, say, Abaddon? Or Bartholomew? When was the last time he was even mentioned? Has he become a forgotten villain already?

On top of that, Castiel was not even mentioned /once/ in this episode. I understand that this was supposed to be an episode about the brothers, but Sam honestly just left Cas at the bunker for no reason. The least they could do is say "Cas is at the bunker" or just confirm that Sam didn't just ditch him to go run after a few werewolves.

So, it's not that I hated this episode, but I was really hoping for something more, especially following a massive plot turn like we had last episode. So far this season, only about half of the episodes have actually been related to the plot. And when you have not one, but THREE villains running loose, it's probably a good idea to focus on that instead of a group of religious wolves.
