SPN: 6x14  

Already, I'm witnessing people disappointed with this episode.  Aw, so soon?  Why fer?  Okay, I think the writers did a little pandering to the hoards of fans that wanted to see a serious repair between Sam and Dean--a return to the bond they had earlier in the series. No biggie.  Upside:  some dangling issues were addressed in this epi, such as...what's Lisa and Ben been up to and how does this effect Dean? Will Sam stop poking The Wall? Can S&D get back to liking each other again?

I sense things are getting patched up so that they can be torn down again, but isn't that what drama is all about? Of course!  What I find fascinating is for all the whinging people have done re. the brudders not acting like themselves anymore, now that stuff is settling back into What Used To Be, they're complaining about that too. The writers can't win for losing, poor monkeys.

Personally, I thought it was a welcomed, 'comfortable' episode. It had that warm feel of familiarity. I liked it. I especially enjoyed the guys doing their own things for a part of the hour, and guess what? It was okay. The world didn't land in the crapper. Dean came to terms (if temporarily) with his complicated life, and Sam found his voice and confidence w/o Dean around to call the shots. Both characters grew.  Oh, and HUZZAH for that teensy bit of vintage rock back in the soundtrack.  I know it's expensive, but I've been missing the hell outta it and I'm glad they blew the cash.

It was an episode designed to let the story breathe for a spell. And that's okay with me. Maybe I'm just easy to please. No matter; I'll take it!

NO way dude. I loved it too. Breath of fresh air, seriously. And that opener? I'm sorry, but if that doesn't make the fangirls happy, then I don't know why they are watching at ALL. *rewinds*

I'm with you, I liked it. I liked the good vibe between the boys. I'm a little confused what the go is with Lisa now though, it didn't seem like a definite ending to me, but she has another boyfriend now so idk?
Those mannequins were the best though! :)

Dolls have always creeped me out, so it was a good, fun scares! My prediction is they're setting Lisa up to need Dean's help in an episode later down the line, even though she's trying to move on. I kinda want to see her rip Sam a new asshole for returning and spoiling her life. Romantic entanglements and drama, for the win!

I don't know, I liked the first ten minutes (that's when I thought, oh yeah, a nice MotW ep.) and then it went downhill. Nothing to do with what they tried story-telling wise (like addressing Ben and Lisa again), but the writing and directing... That montage! It was just so horribly trite.
But I don't want to rant here, I'm glad you enjoyed :)

I totally see your point. It wasn't the strongest epi, in terms of writing and directing. Won't disagree there!
