I can't quite make up my mind about this episode - it was reminiscent of previous seasons, but but but...
Yes, it was good but the early part of this season has poisoned this show. The Samelia crap and Sam wanting a normal life (which HAS NOT been an issue since Season 1) has sucked out a lot of the joy for me.
Please writers, explain WHY Sam didn't look for Dean, abandoned Kevin and why he recruited the unstable Martin to hunt a vampire Sam had no reason to distrust. It will go far to repair the damage that has been done to Sam this season. Sam has regressed to the Stanford era. This is not mature.
Dean needs a stronger storyline too - I'm hoping this show will improve. Won't give up yet.

And we're back to Sam being the hero and Dean the protector. I'll check back in when Dean has a freaking storyline.

I loved this episode! Dean getting his own room and a bed that "remembers" him was great. I loved both of the speeches from Dean and Sam. I just hope that Sam taking on the trails doesn't end bad for him. I do have one question for the writers of the show - In season 4 Cas told Dean that ALL profits are protective by arch-angels why isn't Kevin?

Wondering about the glow on Sam's arm. Maybe each task is more difficult than the previous one, and killing the Hellhound was the easiest one. Accomplishing that, he got a "booster" to make him strong enough to take on the next task. And if he succeeds in that, maybe he will get a final booster for the last task.

It was above average; as reviewed it pulled out old plot elements but did tweak them slightly. Both are now committed to Sam closing the gates of Hell. Dean finally accepts Sam is no longer a little boy Stanford dropout forced into the Hunter life (like the flashback showing them with much younger faces). Keeping Crowley and Castiel out of the episode was good; let it focus on how Dean/Sam have changed and give Kevin some much needed character development.

I am glad the writers appear to be on the right track with this season so far. If CW doesn't pick it up for Season 9, perhaps SyFy will take it on.

I was glad to see that the writers appear to be heading in the right direction with this season. We don't need to see Crowley every week...we need Castiel in more episodes. (Sorry, born-again).

Good show love the special effects. Dean's face when the Hellhounds were to close to Ellie and then the Hellhound it self. Broke my heart when Dean took his Mom's picture out of hsi wallet and put on his desk. He misses her so. Nice that he is nesting and cooking taking care of his family is all he has ever wanted and all he ever gets. No story line at this point (i'm holding out hope) other then to keep Sammy safe. Sam now has a new found purpose embracing the MOL and now taking on the trials since he sees a light at the end of the tunnel. Sam's speech was lacking. Now but your self in Dean's place -- and you hear this “I want to slam Hell shut too, OK. But I want to survive it. I want to live. And so should you. You have friends up here, family. I mean, hell, you even got your own room now. But what Dean hears is that Sam was to survive it but not that Sam wants Dean to but Dean himslef shld want that. I had a friend Benny but had to let him go, so you dont kill him, I have family you Sam who did not bother to look for me. But you are right hell I have my own room now. Where was the come with me I need my brother by side I love you man I'm sorry. We all know Dean is not going to let this alone he never does this is were the new conflict comes from. I wld love to see them both do the trails together but after seeing what happended to Sam when he read the ritual the same person has to do all three to gain full powers to close the gates of hell. So Dean may get to be the brawn and get his ass kicked so Sam can pass the test but that is it. Why dont the writes see that he is so important to the story instead of pumping him up find out exactly who he is and what his purpose is spending a year in purgatory clarified all this for him. But he still remains a care giver.
