Yeah, I liked a lot about this episode. JUMPING THROUGH THE WINDOW TOGETHER! I liked that they lost the knife- that was getting used as a bit of a deus ex machina at this point. I LOVED Dean meeting up with a demon he knew in Hell, the way he STOPPED SNARKING BACK AND JUST GOT SCARED.

I liked Anna, though I thought Jared's delivery was kind of off telling her that her parents were dead. Was he fighting back a smile or what? I'm really not one to criticize their acting at all- I normally totally buy all their delivery- but that felt off to me.

SO YEAH SAM/RUBY. I LOVED IT, AND I KNOW THAT IS WRONG, BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS- please don't judge me- VERY WELL-WRITTEN. FOR A SHOW I ACKNOWLEDGE IS NOT REALLY EMMY MATERIAL. I LOVED RUBY APPROACHING HIM LIKE DEAN- I THOUGHT THAT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE BLATANT- and I LOVED THAT SHE TEMPTED HIM INTO IT BY SAYING IT WAS DIRTY/BAD/WRONG BECAUSE YEAH I SEE HOW SAM MIGHT BE MISSING DIRTYBADWRONG. And then she made it explicitly about creepy comfort- THIS BODY IS SO WARM- and I LOVED THAT SHE CALLED IT "THIS BODY" AND DIDN'T LET HIM PRETEND SHE WAS A REGULAR GIRL. I LOVE SLIPPERY SLOPE SAM. I WANT HIM EDGING TOWARDS EVIL AT ALL TIMES.

And I TOTALLY CALLED THAT SAM TRIED TO SELL HIS SOUL AND THEY WOULDN'T TAKE HIM :DDDDD (A Race Around the Earth). I actually felt this season really needed this episode- Sam was so put-together in the pilot, which I hated and didn't understand, and I'm really glad we got to see him break down INTO A MILLION SAD PIECES OF BROKEN SADNESS. With his BOOZE and STUMBLING EVERYWHERE and AWFUL, HORRIBLE COMFORT SEX.

I like that they made Dean finally accept Ruby- his blind hatred of her has been feeling kind of OOC since last season. And I really think(/hope) that she's not this goody-goody she's been playing. I hope they made Dean accept her so that HER BETRAYAL WILL BE EXTRA SWEET WHEN SHE TEMPTS SAM INTO EVIL. But I think they will probably just have her sacrifice herself in a beautiful act of martyrdom. I miss Bela and the way she clearly had an agenda beyond the Winchesters, actually.

CASTIEL AND HIS :| FACE. I LOVE HIM AND I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY.

Oh, and I didn't see the preview for next week and am not spoiled for it at all, so no hints!
