THEN: A possessed Bobby stabbed himself and ended up in a wheelchair while Sam, Dean and Castiel were out looking for God and the Colt.  That makes me wonder: if the Colt can kill Lucifer, could it, theoretically, also kill God?

NOW: Supernatural continues to bring the funny with Dean turning into a grumpy old man.  I'm expecting a ton of old people jokes.  So take your heart pills, mash up your peas dust off your Bingo cards, because it's about to get crazy.  Or not.  In fact, I'll argue this is the worst episode so far of the season.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


Supernatural starts with a young man getting home, running to the bathroom and then rapidly aging until he becomes a corpse.  Sam and Dean come to investigate how a young man died looking like a senior citizen, and on Bobby's suggestion, they find their second possible victim, only this is an old man who's gone missing.

This first part was incredibly rushed, as if the show was just trying to hurry up and get to old Dean.  The Winchesters find the missing old man in an Asian whore house (the second whore house of the season), only he's a young, buff guy now.  Sam and Dean interrupt a three-way, but as the Young Old Man says, he only paid for one.  I think we found Dean's new hero.

They learn about a traveling poker game in which you play for years of your life instead of money, so after checking in with Bobby, Dean goes to local bars in hopes of finding the game.  He does, but Bobby beat him to the punch.  Wheelchair Bobby was eager to change his situation because, in case you hadn't guessed, he hates being in the wheelchair.

Despite the poor quality of the episode, Jim Beaver actually delivers an amazing performance, which is good because that's the only thing saving this from being among the worst Supernatural episodes ever, on par with "Bugs."
