The Masque
30 July 2011 | by ttapolaSee all my reviews

Despite the not-so-clever title, this is a *great* episode. The opening is actually shocking and when the Winchesters start investigating the case, all kinds of unexpected things start to occur. The Monster-of-the-Week is a really slippery beast, and the writers come up with some brilliant twists but they also tie the episode into the myth-arc through great character development. Plus, this is hysterically funny at just the right places, without this being an actual Comedy Episode. It is difficult to write an episode that naturally progresses from, well, laughs, sex and violence to completely serious drama that culminates in an emotionally and physically intense climax.

It is *really* good to see Jim Beaver again – he was last seen eight episodes ago! And even though it has been shown before, Bobby's "phone center" is still funny. Guest star Jim Parrack, best known as Hoyt Fortenberry in True Blood, is a revelation and has great chemistry with Jensen Ackles, whereas Maite Schwartz, as the Sexy-Woman-of-the-Week, has equally great chemistry (and electricity!) with Jared Padalecki. Funnily enough, her credits include a role in Padalecki's previous series, Gilmore Girls, back when he was still in that series.

The pacing is excellent, and the climax isn't premature like in the previous episode. In the aftermath of the events here, both Sam and Dean emerge changed, raising the viewers' expectations for drama in future episodes. Since the those expectations *will* be met by episodes such as the tremendous "On the Head of a Pin" and the absolutely fiendish season finale, this one has to settle for 8/10. It isn't, after all, as great as those episodes (or the brilliantly executed trickery that is "The Monster at the End of This Book").
