Fair Warning - I hate spiders and spent a good portion of this episode fearing that man-eating spiders were about to appear on my TV screen. Ugh!
Previously - Death created the Great Wall of Sam, RoboSam killed things, Sam didn't want a soul, Death warned against scratching, Sam scratched by tricking Castiel, Sam emo-ed, Castiel told Dean off, and Dean worried.
In the end this episode can be summed up like Dean's reaction to RoboSam's sex life. Not the snark I expected. No huge emo angst scene. Still, it got the job done. Without my utter terror about giant spiders, it was a ho-hum episode. Right until the last minute. This is the kind of shock I expected with the Mother reveal last week and it was sorely needed in this episode. I'm want the Great Wall of Sam to stay safely intact and to see them mess with it so quickly completely shocked me.
Next week - Evil mannequins and the return of Lisa and Ben. Guess which one excites me but leaves me terrified too.
