Yay piscspam! Todd was priceless.

I never expected another funny Supernatural episode so soon after two other lighthearted ones. The preview I saw for Wishful Thinking made it look scary, and it started out creepy with that shower scene, but pretty soon I was laughing non-stop

I was somewhat spoiled for this ep. I had read that this episode was going to be one of the funniest but when I saw the scenes I was very confused. Then the end just killed me. I"m still talking about this eppy two weeks later. One of the funniest, disturbing scenes was when the teddy bear shot himself and he didn't die I was both horrified and amused. And lastly truer words have not been spoken:
Supernatural fans, we learned that lesson long ago. Kripke is the king of the monkey's paw twist, showing us time and time again that the universe always exacts its price. In WIAWSNB, Dean got his mother back, only to lose his brother in the process. In Mystery Spot, Sam convinced the Trickster to release Dean from his endless loop of Tuesday deaths, only to watch him die one last time on Wednesday. We know better than to trust a wish by now, and so were able to watch the hapless residents of Concrete, Washington with amusement as they dealt with the consequences of getting their hearts' desires.

First, icon love! ♥

I was confused by this episode as well, which is probably why I had to wait until all the distractions in my life had subsided before I could collect my thoughts to write this review. It was funny, but with a darker undercurrent that became more pronounced as the episode went on. I did think it was interesting how the way things between Sam and Dean grew progressively more serious paralleled the way the situation in the town became more dire as time went on. Certainly the comical tone of much of the episode made Dean's reveal at the end even more heartbreaking.

I think this season has been good about that. I'm not sure if you're caught up yet but I've noticed this season things have been slowly revealed. The progression seems very natural but it still sneaks up on you.

I'm caught up on watching, just not on my reviews. :)
