Note - This is written about 3.5 months after it originally aired, but I am writing it as close to what I remember as possible. Also things jump from Dean and Sam's POV at the beginning so I consolidated them. The wacky back and forth makes for a hard time recapping. Finally, beware. This is stream-of-conscious, making it less concise and probably less coherent than usual. And we all know those aren't my strengths on a good day. Oh, and I love Lisa.
Previously - Sam's been back for a year, Dean's ticked about it, Dean made a life with Lisa and Ben, Bobby betrayed Dean by not telling him about Sam, we met the CSA (Campbell Soup Army) led by Grandpa Creepy - oh yeah!, no one knew why Sam and Grandpa Creepy were back, shapeshifters are not mandroids but they are gross with the shedding thing, Dean chooses Lisa and Ben over hunting - good for him
Smoke on the Water plays as Dean in gray Henley and blue jacket stands in the garage. Much car porn ensues as we see every angle of that beautiful Impala. And I'm so stoked I don't even mind that they are not playing Back in Black. Well, maybe just a bit. We get a hint of Dean smirk as squealing tires sounds fade out. I love this show!
End Note -I like this episode better now that I've had some time away from it. Originally I thought it was okay but not outstanding. Now I think it was good with some outstanding parts. I got bogged down in details before but now that they have been answered, I can enjoy it on its own merits without the mytharc hanging over me.
