Over the years Supernatural’s Sam and Dean have posed as a lot of things – FBI agent, Health Department, even priest – but “Wishful Thinking” was the first time they’ve ever posed as “Teddy Bear Doctors.”
A dry spell and news of a ghost haunting a women’s shower sends the Winchesters to Concrete, Washington. Okay, maybe it caused Dean to drool a little.
But they found no ghost. Nor did they come across the alleged Big Foot one man swore he saw. Instead they discovered a living bi-polar teddy bear with suicidal tendencies and a pension for booze and porn. I wonder if this kind of teddy bear is what Dean had as a child.
The teddy bear, the invisible teenage boy “haunting” the showers, they were just a couple of the many ways this town has been turned on its ear by wishes gone awry.
What other way would Dean get his ass kicked by what looked like a 10-year-old boy. What’s with Dean sparing with boys. Last week he got into it with the little astronaut over candy. However, it was nice of Dean to still pretend to be scared of the boy so he could save face with the bullies when the spell ended.
Still, it was kind of sad that Sam wasn’t even tempted to wish – a sign of how jaded he’s become. But after seeing how Dean’s test wish for a foot-long Italian with jalapenos back fired, I’m kind of happy Sam didn’t make a wish.
I’m also glad Dean finally came clean to Sam about his memories of Hell. I hate it when the brothers keep secrets from each other. But I can totally understand why Dean didn’t want to talk about it.
It was another fun episode with the Winchester boys. Looks like next week starts a two-part episode where we get back to some angel mythology.
