Whoa, three significant kills in one single episode. Who saw that coming? Dean kills Gwen, Bobby kills his ol’ pal Rufus and Sam shoots a slug into his own grandfather. Suddenly there are a lot less peripheral characters on this show. The highlight for me was the glimpse of the relationship between Bobby and Rufus. It was interesting to imagine those two guys running around in their glory days doing the Sam and Dean thing. Poor Bobby’s gonna need some therapy.
Speaking of therapy, it stands to reason that Sam might need a little couch time as well. Grandpatricide would have to take its toll on the once more soulful Sam. A few things are for certain; Supernatural is still capable in both surprising the audience as well as pulling on our heartstrings. And oh yeah, Eve is a Muther.
