Supernatural 6x14: Mannequin 3 The Reckoning  
So tonight's episode...



It doesn't happen often, but tonight's episode didn't do much for me. It was all over the place and SPN isn't usually this bad when it comes to storytelling. I'm disappointed, but not overly upset. This show rarely has clunkers. Tonight just happened to be one of them.

It had it's bright moments. I thought they handled the Lisa and Dean stuff (with Ben and Dean interaction, finally!) in a very respectful and mature way. I've never been a fan of Dean/Lisa, but I was never one who hated them either. I was more invested in Dean and Ben, which never was explored the way I had hoped. But I was ready for the story to come to a close. Who knows. Maybe Dean will end up with her again someday, but if this is the end of that story then I'm okay with it.

The actual plot part of the story wasn't well done. I like the idea of possessed dolls and possessed!Impala again, yay! But wow, the writing for the plot side of this story didn't work at all, LOL. They finally got somewhere really cool and interesting with the possessed kidney, and they chickened out by having the woman get accidentally killed. Come on, SPN. You can do better than that!

The Sam and Dean scene that began and ended the episode were gold. I loved those scenes. I just wish the possessed mannequin plot had been stronger. Sam was great and did fine. It was the story that was meh. *pats him* It's okay. You got an awesome plot last week.

Looking forward to seeing what next week brings!

Yeah, most people I've talked to said it felt disjointed - and I kinda agree. I think it was due to the fact that they were trying to work with the two plots - the Dean/Lisa/Ben one and the MOTW one. And they didn't do it too seamlessly.

Was nice to see some Dean/Ben interaction. I'm like you when it comes to Dean/Lisa - didn't hate them, but wasn't a big fan either. I'm wondering if there's going to be closure with it now, too.

The whole dolls thing was pretty... weird. I was wondering how the woman got killed - the car hit her?

I think the brother scenes really made the episode. I love when we get those. :)

i really liked the elements of this episode but, like you say, the execution was a bit spotty.
