This ep really shows the true character of the boys in a way that I think gets forgotten. Sam's always portrayed as the nice, good brother. In spite of the fact that he's destined to be Lucifer's meat suit. And Dean, given his sybaritic lifestyle, and general ruthlessness, gets portrayed as the hard one. The mean, nasty one. But here, when blondeRuby presents her spell, the solution to get them out of the mess of demons there to kill them, Sam's the one willing to let Ruby slice the heart out of the nice virgin, and Dean's the one who refuses. Who recognizes that winning at any cost isn't winning at all.
Thus cementing my belief that Dean really is the more awesome brother, and that Supernatural is the story of Dean, not Sam.
'When this is over, I'm going to have *so much* sex.'
*glance at deputy*
'But not with you.'
Also, I'm finding that Bella annoys me less this time around. Ruby was always kind of cool, in that, 'you're totally evil and we all know it but Sam's too stupid/desperate to see it' sort of way.
Also, Lilith! Dude, she was so much creepier in a kid.
Bonus: Dream a Little Dream of Me: 'Daddy's blunt little instrument'. I love that line, and the whole argument that Dean has with his subconscious SO MUCH! Also, demonDean is hot. I'm just saying.
