As far as Sam and Amelia's storyline, I don't hate her but I don't exactly love her either. At the moment, I am just not feeling the love between them. I think it's good that she is now in the present time storyline, and hopefully I can be convinced that she is fact a good character and good with Sam.
This was a great episode! Even though it should not have been the mid-season final, I still think the episode was amazing. Ty Olsson was amazing as always as Benny, and he really brought some depth and emotion into the character. I was freaking out when he laid his head on the counter; ready to die, but I am extremely glad he is still alive. Though Jeremy Carver said this season is all about perception and how not everything is as it seems, I do not think Benny is dead, as some people have said. However, I do think there is more to Benny's character and I am interested to see if may be he is playing Dean, which is just a theory I have.
I've only seen 2 other eps this season--or is it 1?--and I was totally onboard with all of it. I love Benny and was freaked when it looked like he was gonna get killed. After just "meeting " him. That's how good the acting and writing are. I'm intrigued with this Amelia thing but much more interested in the Cas storyline. And really if the horribly written Smallville got TEN SEASONS on the strength of it's great cast then Supernatural which is stellar on both of those fronts could be the next Law &Order or Gunsmoke and go on until Sam &Dean's sons are hunting.
WOW! This episode proves Dean (Jensen Ackles) is THE MAN! Sorry 'bout that Sam but Dean is miles ahead of you.
First of all, Sam will never understand. Dean will deal w/Benny before Sam, I
am sure. Sam was NOT there for Dean and I believe Dean really trusts Benny,
until he proves to be non-trustworthy. Then Dean will not talk he will act. If Sam wants out that is ok w/me. Maybe that is how they want to end it. What is up w/Cas?? And hasnt Sam got anymore since than to 'crazy Martin' on Benny trail? even though it was crystal? He is crazy and now he is dead. Either another vampire came in or Elizabeth is a vampire....
I really liked this episode. It pits real brother against blood brother. Where do the loyalties lie? Sam never wanted to be a hunter (From the episode "After School Special" Sam's teacher asks the 13 year old Sam "Do you want to go into the family business Sam?" "More than anything, No.") Sam has always been dragged back into hunting by Dean. Sam always had other dreams.
I think Amelia will figure into this somehow. I just haven't figured out how. I think maybe it could be about how much are you willing to give up to stay or leave. The boys are really building a huge divide. Soon it will have to be addressed. Amelia will figure into it somehow as will Bennie.
I can't wait to see what happens next especially with Casiel. I love his shows of strength lately when he tells Dean how it really is and sets the story straight.
I enjoyed the episode but was left wondering if Benny actually put one over on Dean with the whole other vampire did it. He could have set up another vamp to meet him to divert blame. Not much time between the scream and the body with Benny having just turned up the path??? The episode was about perception and I am wondering if Martin had that one right and Dean let Benny snow him? Don't get me wrong I like Benny's character but I think there may be a further plot twist because it always seems like Dean gets to be right and he's overdue for a serious blunder. I enjoy the Amelia character and have really enjoyed the flashbacks and hope we get to see much more in "real time". The story has been fed so slow in some ways. I am still hopeful we will get the time period between Deans demise(exploding dick)and Sam meeting Amelia.
I like this show. I think its time that Dean tell Sam to grow the Hell up. Sam doesn't like Benny because he a vampire but because he a friend of Dean's and has earned Dean's trust which he can never do because he has lied and hide so many things over the years that it's so hard for Dean to trust him even though he wants too. Sam even told Dean about Benny that he finally found someone he truely trust. Dean loves his brother and wants to believe in him and trust him but every time he does Sam does something stupid and cause him to doubt him ---again. I think Benny is dead (I wish he wasn't). I think Martin killed him and Elizabeth killed Martin. Sam is so stuck on himself and thinks he KNOWS EVERYTHING that he won't listen to Dean when he tries to explain what happens. Sam thinks he so wonderful and good but when he got that called from Amelia he left Martin in the woods alone!! If he so wonderful he could have told Martin something came up and drop hem off some place safe. I don
I loved it. I love how Dean and Benny are the brothers that each other picked and that circumstances allowed each to find. I love how angry Sam is at Dean because Dean refuses to use any imagination to understand how he felt, and how angry Dean is at Sam for - he thinks - being perfectly happy w/out Dean. The moment of greatest tension for me was when Benny laid his head on the counter, apparently giving in to Martin's demands. If Benny died, it seemed, Dean's phone ploy with Sam and Sam's having Benny followed behind Dean's back would have made both boys guilty of Benny's death. It was great that Benny didn't give in and die and return to purgatory - and he killed in self-defense and to save Elizabeth.
I think Amelia's all right. I confess she doesn't seem to "go" with him, but that happens a lot in life, too.
Dean and Sam are absolute crap at communicating. It's really too bad! :-)
Agree with most of the commentors - tired of these 2 storylines. Sam and Amelia - brack (sound effect). Dean bonding with vamp - ehhh (shrugging shoulders). I want more of the season plot line with the prophet, the tablet, and what is going on with Castiel and the heaven waiting room chick.
I´ve liked this episode but it wasn´t as good as i had expected. I like Benny, but i was far more interested in him in Purgatory, and their relationship with Dean and Castiel then. Still, its good to see him back and i want to know if finally he deserves Dean´s trust.
I wanted to see more about Castiel and his storyline. I hope to see him more after the hiatus and whats going on with Naomi.
About Dean and Sam, i think its okay and necessary for them to have a fall-out so finally can talk and come back hunting together, but because they want to not because they need its their only choice. Kudos to Jeremy Carver and this season gr8. Can´t wait for more!
I inda like Benny so glad to know he will be back. These brothers always have conflict, the same ones just ifferent brothers at different times~ I would have love to see Cass but this episode didnt really warrent his "drop in" I might be alone but I wonder if Elizabeth is a Vampire and she killed Martin and benny to off, food for thought
I liked this episode. It showed Benny really was trying to control himself and that he and Dean could count on each other. I can understand Dean being angry with Sam for taking a year off but only up to a point. Dean took off a year to be with Lisa while he thought Sam was in Hell so it seems a little hypocritical for him to be so mad that Sam did something similar. Hopefully the brothers will make up soon and things will be back to normal.
glad Martin got killed, i really hated him this episode also glad that benny is still alive, and i know im in the minority here but i like the sam flashbacks. 9.5/10
This episode was a pain to sit through! I never thought I would say this, but this should be the last season.
Two plus'for the episode was the inclusion of Martin the hunter and Dean's trick with the cellphone. Maybe because I feel the Sam/Amelia relationship was just as quickly forced upon us without any real direction, that I find those scenes lacking. The fact that Sam would drop everything and run like a puppy dog (yes I meant the pun) to Amelia was forcing the story further until Dean pulled the rug out from that one. As for Martin, his inclusion served to see how far the brothers have come and what any regular hunter would do in the situation. Dean's defense of Benny just seemed so hypocritical since Dean used to be the no-nonsense hunter who killed Sam's childhood monster friend last season.
Overall, disappointing episode. I wanted more Cas, Crowley and especially the stunning Amanda Tapping as Naomi, I mean she appears twice in two 30 second clips. Like thats a good job of getting us interested in that story.
I for one was seriously disappointed with this episode since it was to be the mid-season finale. While I like Benny as a character I just find it so hard to visualize that Dean and Benny have such a strong bond that Dean says Benny has been more of a brother to him than Sam. I mean we have had 7.5 seasons that solidified the relationship between Sam and Dean and then in the course of an off-screen break between seasons that Benny/Dean somehow tops that?
What a great mid-season finale! No Cas, barely any Sam and heaps of Dean and Benny!
The flashbacks of Amelia did drive me nuts and I was happy that it showed Sam leaving her, but when he went back and she saw him, I was so annoyed. I seriously dislike these two and I hope a demon kills her, because if I have to deal with Amelia all season long, I'll probably begin muting my TV when I see her on-screen.
As for Dean, I was so happy he gave Benny the benefit of the doubt. Though his hunting instincts did come out, he choose to believe Benny and go with what he said. Though I am glad Dean is still a hunter, I'm glad it all worked out. Benny is a great addition to the series and though I feel he may eventually get killed off, I'm happy to take what I can for now.
I hate the Sam storyline. I wanted to see how Castiel's storyline will play out. I really like Benny. I think that this could be the last season. They are definitely running out of ideas. Misha needs to be moved to Arrow or The Vampire Diaries. They are wasting his acting talents.
I wasnt to thrilled with this as a mid-seaon finale...I wanted to be kept on the edge of my seat with a major cliffhanger and all I got was Amelia's dumb face :/
Benny's a great addition to the series.
