SUPERNATURAL “The Girl Next Door” Review

Supernatural (CW) The Girl Next Door

SUPERNATURAL “The Girl Next Door” Season 7 Episode 3 – First up I just have to say bravo Jensen Ackles! Another fantastic directing job on another fantastic episode.

After the intense first couple episodes of this season, tonight’s trip into memory lane for Sam was almost tame by comparison. We start out with the boys in the LeviHospital, probably ready to become appetizers in the not-too-distant future, when Bobby shows up and saves the day. After that, things get quite for a while as Dean mopes around in a cast and Sam is still having to cause himself pain to figure out what’s real and what’s not.

But when Sam hears about some suspicious killings, he goes off in search of the culprit and winds up tracking down a woman he met as a kid. Turns out she’s been killing all right, but only to keep her son alive.

That’s where things got tough. Because I felt for her, I really did. I’m not a mom but I can imagine wanting to do anything to save my child. Yet, if it was a human going out and killing innocent people to save her children, would we let them do it? No, I don’t think so.

Funny how those thoughts were running through my mind and yet it still surprised the heck out of me when Dean went and not only tracked Amy down, but killed her. He also left her son motherless and now has one more person (monster, whatever) who wants to kill him.

While the Leviathans were a bit inactive in this one, there’s no way we’ve seen the last of them yet. The buggers have gotten smart – putting people in places where they can track the boys down. It’s only a matter of time before they catch up and I’m quite nervous about what will happen when they do.

My favorite bits..

Open compound tibia fracture? Oh poor Dean. Open compound fractures are no fun. Unfortunately I speak from experience.

Wait. They set an open fracture in a trauma room? Must. Suspend. Disbelief.

Haha, yeah the morphine dopeyness looks familiar though.

Dean falling on his ass.

Yay! Bobby!

“Hey look, a monster broke my leg.” – I really hate it when that happens….

Just about losing it when Bobby patted Dean on the cheek. All together now..AWWWW!

Chanting “C’mon Dean, c’mon Dean” right along with Bobby.

I can’t say I was surprised that Dean was getting into soap operas seeing as how he was stuck on the couch all day. The fact that they were in Spanish did throw me for a bit of a loop, though. LOL.

Sam rubbing his hand to bring himself back into present time. Oh Sammy.

Bobby pointing out to Dean that at least Sam wasn’t keeping secrets.

Dean scratching at his cast. Aw. Yep, nothing worse than an itch in a cast.

Did Sam just DARE to suggest to Dean that cake was “close enough” to pie?? Does that man not know his brother at all? LOL.

Yay! It’s little Sam!

Aw, sleepy Dean.

LOL! My Bloody Valentine commercial. Nice touch there, guys.

The TV talking about a lazy wildebeest as Dean is snoozing on the couch. Another nice touch.

“For all we know he’s road tripping with Lucifer somewhere.” – Now *that* sounds like a helluva trip!

Oh Dean, you naughty boy. Cutting off your own cast.

Little Sammy practically screaming “Stab it in the heart!” in the middle of a library. Smooth.

Yeah! That’s our little Sammy!

“You got tall, huh?” – Understatement.

Um..brains in the fridge? That’s a little odd, right?

“All the coolest people are freaks.” – Hell yeah!

Whoa. Looks like Amy has learned some moves of her own.

“I’ve been around enough bad to know good when I see it.” – Aw, sweetest line ever.

“A couple of pros in a piece of crap Impala” – Hey! Don’t you be talking down to Baby like that.

Sam opening the door and getting his lights knocked out by Dean somehow reminding me of the pilot where Dean was standing outside their dad’s hotel room and Sam yanked him in by the collar.

“New rule. You steal my baby, you get punched.” – I think if everyone implemented that, there’d be a lot less stolen cars.

Sam pointing out that he might be a freak but it wasn’t the same as dangerous. Truer words have never been said.

Sam begging Dean to trust him..and his shock when Dean actually agreed to it.

Wow..just, wow. I don’t know what to say. I do understand why Dean did killed Amy but I did not see that coming at all.

Okay that’s it. I am never eating nacho cheese again.

What did you think of this episode of Supernatural? Got any favorite bits or least favorite bits of your own? I’d love to hear from you!
