Another issue that comes up again is the Winchester brothers going their separate ways. Dean focuses on saving Bobby while Sam worries about saving the town. Unlike season four where this disconnect had them at odds, they’re passively accepting that they don’t see eye to eye and are going to do their own thing. While this might seem like nothing to the casual viewer, I have to wonder what this could mean when the apocalypse spins further out of control and each brother has his own destiny to face. Will they go down together or apart in an attempt to reach the same end goal?
Of course the zombies had to go bad just for those who wanted the typical showdown of the undead getting their heads blown off. They aren’t disappointed. Dean, Bobby, and Sam get their share of people eaters in the end. Considering this is also a Jeremy Carver script (yep, he still owns me) there must also be funny. Word of caution Sam and Dean, if you’re going to pull off the whole FBI thing, right down to giving the sheriff your fake supervisor’s name, make sure your fake supervisor doesn’t live in the same town and the sheriff easily knows his voice. Also, the line of the night goes to Dean. When finding out the horseman Death is behind this, Dean again comes up with the perfect reaction. “Awesome. Another horseman. It must be Thursday.”
My overall grade, an A -. All that’s left is my plea to Warner Brothers when putting together the season five DVD set. Please switch the episode order back.
