Rewatching 4-4 Metamorphosis

I have been tearing my hair out trying to post this properly for the last hour. I had it on scheduled posting but suddenly it would not allow me to save edits so you got a rather rough draft of the thing at the scheduled time. I'm sorry if you got the post without cut and unfinished for 30 minutes until I just gave up and deleted the post once. I switched to the new page style and now it seems to be working. Is this some sort of torture to get us old-timers to move to the new style? I really feel like killing someone. Anyway, here it is.

Metamorphosis to me has always been the episode I go to when I want to make a point about what monsters are to Sam. There are many other episodes that back it up, of course, but this episode is where he actually goes right out and says what he’s been thinking – sort of like in Season 8. It is also a good episode to rewatch because a lot of the things that are said and that happen in this episode seem to foretell events to Season 5. It’s also amazing in that it is one of the few episodes where Sam and Dean both share their feelings and get things out in the open. Some scenes are just so painful to watch, and yet necessary and inevitable.

Let’s get started then shall we?
