I laughed a lot during this. Familiar reaction, indeed!

Except the hair. Sam's hair - like Duke's - is ridiculous. (I know, I know, different strokes...but still!)

I typed up some shit here that I erased because now I have to be mad. Why the FUCK would Sam not look for Dean? Excuse me, what the fuck show is this?

SO MUCH THIS! Jesus fuck. Come ON!

I understand from a storyteller's perspective that Sam not giving any fucks is plot point gold, but...for the character himself? UGH! God.

Yeah, too bad their plot point gold doesn't work coming from their characters.

both of them have been through literal hell, so why all the forced nondisclosure tension? I mean if anyone in the world could get it, it would be each other, right? Why bother all the "I'm not expressing myself" shit?

Because they're shit at writing actualfax drama?

FLASHBACKS WOT???????? Who is writing this shit?

God, YES!!! Apparently we really are brain twins. I am dying BUT IT'S NOT FUNNY!

Crowley + goats = the best thing in the episode.

AHAHAHA! Indeed.

In summation: I could have just linked to your post instead of expressing my own rage.

The weird part is I usually hate long hair on men. I wonder if I hit my head recently and don't remember.

I felt like there were so many characterization flaws in this episode that if it had been a fic I would have hit the back button in the first act. Sam doesn't look for Dean. Ok. That's kind of like the sea being up and the sky under your feet. No. I mean, they sell their souls for each other, go to literal hell, go through hideous torture, but then Sam's just all "Meh, I'm gonna adopt a dog"? Hopefully there's a lot more to this, but why have this sort of weird issue in the premiere? It's just bad storytelling...

...which brings me to the flashbacks. What can even be said? This is so universally a bad writing trope that Jane Austen probably wrote screes about it in her diary.

I'm hoping this was some set up for LOLBODY SWAP or something, but they've done all those plots, so probably not.

Oh well, Dean was wearing a cowboy shirt.
