Such a glorious episode, isn't it, and fraught with Winchester brother angst. It's also, I think, the first episode since "Wendigo" that puts emphasis on all that rage that is at times central to Sam's character. And unless if you count "Bloody Mary", it's also the first time that we're shown a...shall we say, darker Sam, or at least a Sam that is lacking his empathy filter, which is also something we'll see rear its head again, particularly in season 6.

This episode, I'll state for the record, was written by Richard Hatem, and this is the last episode that he'll write for Supernatural. He also wrote "Phantom Traveler", and it's interesting to me that both of his episodes carried themes of possession in them. Hmm.

So, here we come to the episode that really kicks off the MythArc; aka, Epic Plot Shenanigans are afoot in this episode. If one is like me, and pays attention, this should be exceedingly obvious, as this episode was written by Eric Kripke himself (who had a hand in the majority of the big Mytharc episodes of this season; except for "Heaven and Hell" and "The Real Ghostbusters", for the rest of the seasons that he was Showrunner, he stuck to the first and last episodes of the seasons. And then I guess he stepped in as some kind of guest writer for the last episode of season 6, "The Man Who Knew Too Much").
