Previously - Lisa and Dean broke up, Ben was totally correct, Dr. Visyak was awesome, Raphael was psychotic, Cas allied with Crowley and started civil war, Balthazar was helpful..sometimes, Cas and Crowley wanted Purgatory, Dean felt betrayed, Cas threatened Crowley and visited Bobby's not-quite angel-proof abode, Dean called Cas brother and used an emotional anti-Purgatory argument since logic didn't work, Cas still wanted souls, Dean said he'd stop Cas.
It's March 15, 1937. H. P. Lovecraft busily types during a storm in Providence, RI. He looks nervous and consumes copious amounts of hunter's helper. His door opens but no one is there. I don't think the gun will help you Lovecraft. He obviously expects evil and no doubt did something stupid to bring whatever it is down on himself. More alcohol later and a window busts. The briefest fuzziest glimpse of a shadow appears and Lovecraft begs. "We didn't know. I'm sorry." Yep, brought it on himself. The creature doesn't care because blood splatters all over the title page of his brand new "Haunter of the Dark" manuscript. The scandal should make for an instant bestseller. Glass breaks. For those wondering, Lovecraft did indeed die on this day but from intestinal cancer.
I thoroughly enjoyed this episode despite the controversies I know it will spark. I'm a big fan of Lisa and Ben so I am really happy they didn't die. This is kind of a best of both worlds scenario because Dean can focus on the hunt but I can get my happy ending when the show ends. I am loved how Dr. V. turned out to be a Purgatory monster. That's the most shocking thing in the last two episodes for me and it really worked well here. All in all a great episode!
