Review - Supernatural Season 5 Episode 7 The Curious Case of Dean Winchester

All good things must come to an end, and for Supernatural season 5, it did. After being blessed with several excellent, excellent episodes, we've gotten several average ones. Not that, the past few episodes, have been horrible, but there has been a noticeable drop in quality.

'The Curious Case of Dean Winchester' did not advance the main story of the apocalypse. I think everyone is expecting the typical apocalypse with everything burning and people dying all over. Instead there are random interludes like this one that are unrelated. So far, the setting doesn't feel apocalypsy.

The story was straightforward and very simplistic, but it allowed us to see different sides of the characters. Bobby is basically a wreck without usage of his legs, and Sam is allowed to save the day for a change. The villain played by Hal Ozsan is oddly sympathetic, doing several nice things, and never showing true malice. He takes away years, but that's because he's good at playing cards.

Score: 8.6/10

So you're saying the reason you didn't like the episode was because it did not relate to the apocalypse?

That's part of the reason. If the apocalypse is in fact going on, anything unrelated seems a little disingenuous.

The other part of the episode I didn't like was the average story involving the witch and lack of any weight behind it.
