Announces season 3 is at a whole another level
20 September 2019 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

This is the first episode that showed season 3 was going to be amazing. It seamlessly forwards the 3 main threads of the season-hunters being mad at the Winchesters, Bela/Ruby being foils for the Winchesters, and Dean's farewell tour (vis-a-vis the storage locker). Each story beat lands and thinking of the season as a whole it is remarkable how much is packed into this 40 minutes. And that is the lesser virtue of the episode.

This is a wonderful screwball comedy because of the bickering with Bela and the rabbit's foot mechanics. It is beyond funny. It created a signature moment for the entire series-I lost my shoe-and it is still laugh out loud funny after all these years.

This is Supernatural at its best.
