After seeing Dean and Crowley team up last week, it was good to get back to the good old formula of Sam and Dean. They hadn’t seen or heard from Garth in six months, and I was beginning to wonder when the next one of these episodes was going to come around. It was around mid season when he popped up last time.I kinda expected Sam to be a little bit more pissed at Dean for letting him be Gadriel’s darth vader outfit, but after almost ten years of their ridiculously bromantic I don’t know why I’m surprised at anything anymore. More than anything, dude just seems lost, and doesn’t have a clue what to say to his brother. Is it more stupid that Dean doesn’t even realise that what he did was wrong? (Again, why bother?)
Turns out Garth’s a wolf now, and is living with probably the most civilised family of wolves ever. It was a bit of a weird episode, in a way that we’re used to seeing the guys hunt and kill these kind of monsters throughout the nine series so far, not hang around for dinner.
Let’s face it, every episode Garth’s been in before has been a little dumb, so we all knew that was coming. When Sam and Dean walked out on hunting, we saw that it ripped them apart, and inevitably, they came back, but life ain’t so bad for Garth. It’s been too easy an escape for him, and that’s what jarred the episode. He was a pure hunter, just like the Winchester boys, so it made no sense for him to walk out of it just like that.
It’s clear that in this season we’ll be visiting roads already traveled with the guys, but this time it’s their emotions that are at stake. In pretty much every other season something’s gotten in the way of them dealing with their shiz, and even though they’ve got their plates kinda full, something’s different. Even though Sam agreed to keep going, the fact his doesn’t really trust Dean anymore just crushed the guy. No more bromance for a while, I guess.
On a random sidebar, the CW ordered a pilot of a Supernatural spin-off, that will see monsters vs hunters on the streets of Chicago. Bleh! There’s a whole new cast, too, but with Jared and Jensen, it’ll be pretty tough to pull it off.
Get it together CW!
– Will Garth be back again?
-Good job coming clean about the mark of Cain!
– Will the guys acc deal with their problems for once?
