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 :)
