SPN #7x07 The Mentalists (episode review)  
Just some random thoughts on tonight's episode...

I thought it was cool how they set it in Lily Dale. I've heard a fair bit about that town and I've always found it pretty interesting. I noticed they mentioned the Fox sisters ... a throwback to the Fox sisters who kicked off the spiritualism movement?

I knew the boys weren't going to be apart for long - or "long" as in number of episodes, anyway. Still didn't like seeing the tension between them, though.

I liked the girl they were helping... the brunette whose name totally escapes me now... Mama Goldie's granddaughter.

This episode had more of an old school feel to it, even with the tension between the boys. I liked the twist that it was the pawn shop guy behind the killings. Also nice little twist that it turned out the ghost whose bones they burned wasn't the one they were supposed to kill.

Almost forgot - the guy in the teaser... Stargate fans help me out... was that Gary Jones aka Walter Harriman?? I swear I thought that was him...

The guy in the cafe or whatever who was giving out affirmations was kinda funny...

I liked that Sam and Dean reconciled in the end. But of course you knew I'd say that. ;) Especially Dean admitting that he was stressing and feeling guilty.

Without spoiling, next week's looks errrrrrr, interesting, lol
Current Mood: okayokay

No, Jensen's said he'll stay with show for as long as it's on, he's said that several times. I think Dean's drinking is going to come to a head and he's going to have to confront it.

Thanks. I don't know why I post a response right after the show. I'm always really to hyped up to think in a normal way. I really enjoyed the episode. It wasn't mind blowing but it was good.

I liked the episode, but I wasn't satisified with the ending. I don't like that Sam forgave him so easily. I honestly wanted Sam to punch him one good time before forgiving him.

Not so sorry to interrupt, but THIS! Like, I don't even want to get in on it, but the fact that Sam forgave him and apologized just annoys the hell out of me.

Yeah, that annoyed me. It was like Sam was apologizing for being upset about something he had a right to be upset about. I don't think things are good between them and probably won't be for awhile, Sam's got some very good reasons to not trust Dean: The lying, the drinking, the going behind his back, plus Dean told him to his face that he didn't trust him. This isn't over, it's been patched for now, but it isn't over.

Yeah, I wasn't too happy with that ending either. It was like something was seriously missing. I think Sam forgave him much too easily myself. I wonder if they'll ever come back to this, but I'm guessing not. Damn. :/

Gary Jones? Where? Did I miss something?

Oh, and yes, yes, yes. Loved this episode. What fun! :D

It was the opening scene of the psychics using the Ouija board. There were two women and a guy... I could've sworn the guy was Gary Jones.

Amen! :D

I really enjoyed the episode, really reminding me of season 1&2 and I love it. =3

Only thing that bugged me was the ending when Sam apologized to Dean...WTF!! >=/

The promo for the next ep is just OMG!!!(I was hoping it would be Sam.) Roll on next week.

Same here :D

That bugged me as well... it was like it was too easy! Like they were trying to wrap that whole storyline up in a hurry :(

That's how I feel - can't wait to see what's going to happen, although I have an inkling of an idea of what it's going to involve...

Whats your idea?! If you dont mind asking, I love hearing other fans ideas ^^

Well, I heard through the grapevine that someone saw the script and kind of spilled the beans about it. I'll PM you so I don't accidentally spoil anyone :)
