Did You Know?


"The Cicero Pines Motel" location has been used many times throughout the shows seasons. Used is S1 E17, S2 E3 as well as S12 E8. It has had many different names in different episodes & a major remodel on the exterior for its appearance in season 12. The giveaway is the the "pyramid" shapes over the front doors or the wooden beams protruding from overhead. Those were covered though in the remodel. See more »


At the start of the episode, when Dean leaves Sam to first visit Lisa, there is a flyover shot of the neighborhood. Clearly visible are Canada Post mailboxes, which wouldn't be present in Indiana. See more »

I know I'm pretty much alone with my opinion on this, but I find the Dean-Kid-Scenario extremely trite.

It's not the idea in itself I have a problem with, but the way it's been transformed. It's just too much, the similarities between Dean and the kid seem so forced, that it makes me feel as if the creators don't have that high an opinion of the audience so that they try to make their point so obvious that even the dumbest viewer gets the idea. The 'bond' between them was so exaggerated that I didn't feel anything between them at all.

I would have appreciated if they had handled that matter in a much more subtle way. I liked how Dean connected with the boy in 'Dead in the Water'. That touched my heart.

The two points I give this episode are for the changelings. They did scare me a little bit..
