Rewatching 4-13 After School Special

It's Friday and it's time to sit down and write my thoughts on After School Special. This is an episode I have mixed feelings on. It definitely has some important underlying "Supernatural" themes which I have droned on about in other reviews. One of these is Sam's wish to be normal and the question, "What is normal?" Another is people being influenced by others into becoming monsters and the choice we all have to give into it or not. A friend from the forum especially loved this episode because it addressed the issue of bullying, which she had also experienced in high school. Interestingly, I guess we are also addressing the idea of Dean as being a "bully" as we saw in Yellow Fever. That is the part of the show I am actually uncomfortable with so I might be thinking about that a bit as I write.
