“I’ve been wanting to gank that mother since Mystery Spot.” So, is that a hint that Dean knows how much torture Sam went through in "Mystery Spot?" Judging by his anger, I'm thinking he knows.
Other Stray Thoughts
The attention to detail in this episode is incredible and everyone involved outdid themselves. The set design, the direction, the writing, the music, the acting, the cinematography, it’s all just splendid. The most impressive feat is all that original "eclectic" music during Dr. Sexy MD. The story is the music director for Supernatural is the same person who’s worked on Grey's Anatomy. Awesome!
I especially admire the set designers since they had to do all those shows. I'm quite taken with the contrast between the motel room in the sitcom and in the real world. The layouts are the same, but in the sitcom world the colors are way brighter, the cabinets and door bright white, and the refrigerator is full. In the real world everything is dingier and run down. Not a happy accident.
The direction of Charles Beeson here is phenomenal, for switching from one TV show parody to another and making them all look brilliant without losing the flow is no easy feat. The entire confrontation with the Trickster too is an extremely well shot scene that manages to spike the tension from the script even more.
The Trickster obviously needed to trap Sam and Dean since they can’t be found by angels and the Hulk incident is inspired. Not the bad movies Hulk but the Lou Ferringo 70's TV show Hulk. Dean's line is priceless. “Is there any reason Lou Ferrigno, the Incredible Hulk, would have a grudge against your husband?”
How about these lines:
“You might say you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.”
“Ally with the Trickster. A bloody, violent monster and you want to be Facebook friends with him?”
“This show has ghosts? Why?” Ha! I know many Grey's Anatomy fans were asking that one.
“Dean, this feels really uncomfortable. Ow.”
“You might say we pulled it out of Sam’s ass.”
“So which one are you? Grumpy, Sneezy, or Douchy?”
