Supernatural - How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters (Spoilers)

Sam, Dean and Bobby are investigating gruesome deaths in New Jersey. A lot of strange things are not adding up. Speaking of strange, why is Dean acting it?


As with most TV series, you cannot keep high quality going every week and in this case, this episode is a big dip in quality. Apart from the fact that this episode deals with the Leviathans in a big way and reveals some insight into what they are up to, the story is not very good. We have the humor of Dean drugged up attitude and certainly some good moments among our three favorite hunters but the story just seems awkward.

This awkwardness is in the form of pacing and direction I think. The story just seems to meander around with the investigation. The entire idea of people being drugged by the meat being sold in the restaurant reminds me of the Double Meat Palace from Buffy, The Vampire Slayer and even that episode wasn't that good.

The story does get on track toward the end with the confrontation with the Leviathans and leaves the viewer on a pretty big cliffhanger that thankfully and hopefully will be answered before the show goes into its Christmas hiatus.
