 I've read a LOT of internet hate regarding this episode.  It wasn't the best, and I think the C grade is probably appropriate (I may have gone for C ), but it wasn't the awful thing that everybody was making it out to be.  My only gripe is this:  I'm a little tired of them introducing new "old" friends to the series.  Haven't there been enough extras and side characters in the show to bring back somebody who actually has some past screen time?  They need a cop who becomes a witch after learning what's what?  Why not Linda Blair's character from season 2?  The most unforgivable addition to their past, IMO, was the old man from the episode "Hunteri Heroici"...if the episode weren't so GREAT, I would be more pissed about it.  But really, not only was it a new character to the mythos, but they were well aware of his powers.  Remember how much angst they had surrounding Sam's psychic powers?  If they know that people like him, and possibly more powerful than him, exist, WHY would they have worried so much about Sam's visions?  I'm still enjoying the show overall, but it certainly seems like they're starting to play pretty fast and loose with what is supposed to make sense in the world of the show.

 Two things- this episode had the feeling of a pilot (like the OS Star Trek ep "Assignment: Earth"). Second, I think there will be a time limit on how long Sam has to finish the trials.

The most important thing in this episode that Sam made perfectly clear was the fact that Shemp is indeed the better stooge. Other than that this episode was designed to be a spinoff jumping point for the new series "Witches and their Bitches" coming soon to the CW.
