Rewatching 5-7 The Curious Case of Dean Winchester

I think I am being haunted by something.  I wrote half of this review and then erased it by mistake. Second time, my first paragraph got erased again. Then, I tried to save a draft when it was almost finished (why did I do that) and DAMN LJ erased part of it again. I think you can imagine the despair I went through.  I'm surprised I even got my act together and finished this.  But yay.  Finally.

To me, this episode addresses two themes.  One would be a life worth living, I guess.  Both Bobby and the woman witch in this episode are struggling with this because of their present situation and, their decisions at the end ultimately come down to family.  Another theme is aging, especially with regard to hunters, and Sam and Dean.  I found it reminded me a lot of Criss Angel is a Douchebag because of the change in the way Sam views their lives now, and we also see Dean's admiration for a certain way of growing old... I'll think about that a bit more as I write.
