Comforting the creeper!girl.
Perhaps you can be more specific because I could not find such a scene and I even went back and watched the epi again after I read your comment. If anything, Emily seemed more focused on Sam.
By the way, was she a vampire or just a self-sustaining happy meal. I didn't really get the point of the creepy pedo vibes from the Alpha vamp all of sudden.
I actually didn't hate the episode as much as some, but I agree that there was something missing.
I did like Rick Worthy as the Alpha vamp and I feel kind of bad for him that he was in such a dull episode.
I also actually like what they have done with Dick these past couple of episodes, but I think they are giving him too much screen time in big chunks as opposed to spreading it out over the course of the season, so it feels like too much too late.
I thought Dean's food woes were cute too, but I really was getting the comic relief sidekick vibe for him this episode.
I also thought they missed a great opportunity to establish the connection between Dean and the alpha, what with Dean having been one of his children for a short time. But as per usual, the writers seem to have some kind of memory deficit disorder where Dean is concerned.
In terms of the flatness, I agree that there was no real sense of urgency, though I could see poor Jared working really hard to infuse the scenes with some, what with the way he was almost yelling at Dean over every little thing.
Unfortunately for me, I rarely find it enjoyable when Sam takes the lead. He always comes off as slightly shrill and petulant and since Jensen had nothing to do but agree and stand slightly behind Sam at all times so as not to cast any kind of shadow over Sam's big moments of convincing the monster to do the right thing or whatever. But I just don't buy Sam as a "leader" because JP makes him come off as pushy as opposed to confident and the whole moral authority/master strategist thing they were trying to give him just felt inauthentic to me.
Anyway, next week looks just as lackluster so I am waiting for the season to be over so we can all move on. Somehow, I think the writers are doing the same, judging by how how uninspired the show feels these days.
Not that I expect any miracles from Jeremy Carver because he was inculcated by Kripke and Singer in the same writers' room as Gamble, so most of the things that I have gradually come to hate about the show will likely still be in effect. But maybe a little fresh blood will re-energize them into at least pretending that they doing more than going through the motions to collect their paychecks.
