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 was not surprised that Sam didn't look for Dean. Sam was dragged into the demon catching life from the start. He has been reluctant through the whole show so far. He has always wanted to get out. Dean, however, has always felt it was his duty. He is more of the martyr type. He will do it until it kills him. He sees it as his duty to save his family and the human race from demons and hell etc...
I liked the flashbacks, but they did get a bit predictable. There were too many of them. I think they need to space them a bit. I did, however, love the flashbacks of Purgatory! I loved the ones of Sam too on how he met Amelia. Eventually we will get to what really happened. It may take many flashbacks, but we will get there! lol
oops judging him on who he was "your just a bully you always have been."
Luke has to keep a distance. I'm not sure he wants to get as involved as Fred was. Fred got all messed up. Luke is trying to let the natural consequences play out. If she gets in real trouble I'm sure he will step in..especially if it's not going the way it's supposed to.
I'm hoping next week will bring a happier episode, but one just as good! :)
