Supernatural 9×13 ‘The Purge’: “Either you leave or I’ll make you.”

It’s a monster-of-the-week episode and Sam and Dean are working together…sort of.  We’ve been here before, so many times, and it’s a little bit of a tiring routine.  Sam is mad at Dean for saving his life, they’re broken, but they’re working through it.  This episode brings up more of that moral dilemma Dean doesn’t fully grasp; can monsters be good?

Sam’s mad at Dean because Dean allowed an angel to possess him in order to save his life.  And here we have a recurring theme; Dean is NEVER ready for anyone to die and Sam is ALWAYS ready to die…or leave the business, whatever.  I mean, I guess Sam has a point about having his body violated.  There are probably interesting conversations to be had about whether or not Dean was in the wrong.  I think Sam feels he’s really driving home a point to Dean, but I think Dean is so blinded by his need to hold on to everything that Sam will never get through to him.  I guess it’s mildly interesting that they’re having these conversations instead of just fighting and never really discussing their issues.  But I don’t think the writers will actually push this issue, because it would require some heavy discussion that Sam and Dean never really do.  I’m just tired of the Winchesters always fighting.

Oh yeah, and there was an evil, fat-sucking monster, and a not-so-evil, fat-sucking monster.  Dean wants to kill both, but Sam convinces him to let the not-so-evil one return to her homeland of Peru.  More moral dilemmas for the boys!  What did you think of this episode?  Let me know in the comments!

is a native NEOhioan who loves winter, Lake Erie, and dramas from the WB and the CW. She’s not a big fan of reality tv, excluding the occasional competition show involving dancing or singing. She’s really into watching tv shows via Netflix or Hulu Plus…particularly Netflix, because watching shows in succession with no commercials is awesome. (She believes Netflix and other like services will eventually replace live tv.) When not watching tv, she’s training for a marathon, photographing people, taking her neighbors’ dogs out on adventures, geocaching, or making the cutest stuffed animals with her fluffy kitties.
