SPN #7x12 Time After Time After Time (episode review)  
Here's my hopefully coherent review of tonight's episode...

So what was with that big house they were going into? Was it a place to squat in just for this case, or is it going to be their new "home", sort of (like Bobby's house was)?

Speaking of which... love how they sorted out the bathroom thing with Rock-Scissors-Paper again. Although Dean apparently didn't pick scissors that time, did he? With his muttering about how paper beats a rock... lol

Aw, Sammy being concerned for Dean... hoping he's looking at "cartoon smut" instead of info on Dick Roman (how did he put it? "Being totally into Dick"? LOL, oh Sam...). Dean: "It's anime. And it's an art form." Heh.

Nice to see Sheriff Mills again. I liked the little moment between her and Sam after they'd moved Bobby's stuff into the house, where she finds the bottle of liquor that was apparently from Rufus. She says that she and Sam should drink it, and they agree he'd (Bobby, I guess?) want them to. Aw. I know it's been annoying to not see Sam's POV much about what happened to Bobby, but they are showing it in a more subtle way. And after reading an interview Jared did (from the TCA thingie yesterday), it makes more sense to me.

Dean in 1944 ... To quote him, "awesome." He and Elliot Ness were great together. And I loved Fanboi!Dean all about The Untouchables. So Ness was a hunter. Hmm, interesting. Ezra (the older woman helping them - I think that was her name) was a pretty cool character, too. Liked how she used the term "idjits" and it got Dean thinking about Bobby. Aw. Speaking of which, I also liked the talk he had with Ness where he said everyone in his family became a hunter and they all died. (Hey, that might be true, but Sammy is still there!) Ness' reply with the "don't cry me a river" ... lol, not in the mood for Angsty!Dean I guess.

I also liked how they intercut the scenes of Dean and Ness tracking down the info on the monster with scenes of Sam and Jody doing the same. And how Dean happened to find the same house that he and Sam were holing up in so he could send him a message. Liked the Back to the Future references.

Did the ending seem a bit abrupt to anyone? I was surprised at the last commercial break that there was only a few minutes left. But I love how Sam was able to get Dean back before he got strangled, and that he was able to kill the guy.

Fun episode. One question about the next one, though (don't worry, it's not spoilery). I noticed during the preview they said it was for next week. According to my new TV Guide issue, it says they're showing #7x03 next week. What is going on? Or did I get the promo wrong and it's actually 2 weeks from now? Anyone know?

Oops, almost forgot... On the shallow side, both boys were rockin'. At times Dean reminded me of Dean Smith from It's a Terrible Life, at least in the way he had his hair. And I loved Sam's hair this episode, especially in the beginning where they were interrogating the witness. Mmm :)

LOVED this episode. But I've noticed that this is the second ancient God Sam's killed.

We've got a two week hiatus after this. I think saying 'Next week' is just the default thing the announcers say.

It did end a bit abruptly. I was kinda hoping for just a teeny bit of interaction between Sam and Dean post-rescue. Regardless, the episode was awesome :)

Great review, Jess! I thought it was a pretty good episode, but I'm really missing our Sammy.

I thought Jared looked completely gorgeous in this episode. *dead*

Although it was abrupt, maybe it was better to not have yet another car talk at the end. There wasn't a ton of substance to this episode, but it was a well written story complete in itself and did not take anyone out of character. I enjoyed it!!! :)

Sam's hair was so fluffy and epic! Even better is that his sideburns doesn't show that much then. Or at least I think. I honestly don't really think much of them lol. I mean, with a stunning guy like that I have other things to watch haha

I also wondered about the choice of the house.
Yes, Deand Ness did a great duo, i wish we'd see them with Sam together.

I really enjoyed the episode, loved Dean working with Elliot and Sam with Mills. (She is awesome.)

Also both boy's looked so good. Agree with you on Sam's hair but I would have loved if we got to see Sam dressed like Dean. <3

Yes now with have to wait another two weeks for the next episode I mean WTF!! We just got Supernatural back after 6 weeks and now they are making us wait AGAIN. X(

I saw the promo for the next ep. (won't say any spoilers.)

I'm going to be honest, kinda annoyed it's another Dean heavy ep, I want to see more of Sam dealing with his memories of hell. Also not liking what happens with Dean. (can't say anymore without spoiling it but I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.)

A good episode, I agree! Cool period-costumes, neat special effects, good guest stars, and cool time-travelling tricks (by that I'm mostly referring to when Dean figures out how to get that message to Sam).

I too felt like the ending was very abrupt. Plus, it doesn't sit quite right with me that they killed Chronos. I felt for him, and thought he deserved more consideration before just being gutted. (I can't pretend I don't carry a bias here. I'm a big Jason Dohring fan.)

Overall a good episode! I must go find a clip of the promo for next episode now.
