So, they answered my question. Go figure. I didn't think I would get my answer that fast LOL
I still have a hard time buying that Dean can be so much like himself and remember everything from Hell. *shrugs* I'm not going to fret over it, though, because I'm down with spazing over things. I just was a little surprised by it. I think it would make more sense for him to have flashbacks, but I guess he's known for a while? Or since he came back? Is that what they implied? It's hard for me to hear anything in my house so I often miss important points.
The alcohol makes sense. I figured we might see him turn to it. And they've been showing him drink more and more as the season has gone on. I just hope he doesn't become a raging alcoholic.
It was nice to see a lot of stuff for Sam here. While Dean sort of takes over (because of the nature of his character and plot), we did get to see a lot going on with Sam. How he's changed, but how much he's stayed the same. Even as early as S1 he was out for revenge. Now he is out for revenge again. But he still cares for Dean and really wants to help. I wish we could have seen more of this sentiment earlier than episode 8, though.
Poor thing died too. Aw.
I appreciate that both of them are trying to be a little more honest. The on and off lies are getting a little old, mainly since it's been going on a while. I guess we'll see if they are learning or not.
And while all this important angsty stuff is going on for both brothers, the show still delievers a funny episode. These are my faves. The ones that can be both light and achey at the same time. I think this is one of my faves so far this season. It struck the right cord for me in terms of the brothers, the humor, the angst, and the story.
I'm sure I'm missing stuff but I really enjoyed it. My guess is that maybe Dean did some unsavory things in Hell and he doesn't want Sam to know about them. We'll have to see what happens.
But SPN? Keep it up. This season has been amazing so far. I may have some complaints here and there, but overall bang up job.
