Not bad not great
21 October 2011 | by mm-39See all my reviews

Not a bad episode! Dean is portrayed as a meanie in this one. Sam and Dean escape the creatures from the hospital. Sam goes on a mission for a creature that saved his life years ago. Sam finds out this female creature killed people to save her child. In the end, Dean kills the creature which Sam could not. I believe this episode will cause future conflicts between the brothers. Good episode had the viewer wondering what will happen next? One finds out that Sam is sane and rational in spite of Dean's doubts about his brother. Nice to see the series back on track. Bobby was absent from this episode. The series seems odd now without Casiel. I give "Defending Your Life" an eight out of ten
