|The Winchester's Food Revolution|
7.22 There Will Be Blood was directed by Guy Bee and written by Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin. Seeing this is the penultimate episode leading into the finale, I think this episode was ok. I liked it, but not loved it. But I should love it because I always love the penultimate episode. Something was not quite right and I couldn't put my fingers on it.
I mean…if I looked at the episode and its impact in the coming finale, it's simple -- There Will Be Blood was exactly what the official description told us. Dean and Sam got what they wanted, and as long as Crowley gave them his blood, they'd have everything they needed to kill Dick. But the LeviathanBoss needed a little chat with the King of Hell at the end of the episode, which had trouble written all over it. Ooohhh…
OK, here is the thing. I've said it before and I really don't want to repeat myself. But Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin are writers for the fun filler episodes that have little or no connection with the mythos. Don't even try! Every writer has their special skill sets to write different types of episodes -- Ben Edlund and Jeremy Carver can write friggin anything; characters' emotions shined particular in Sera's episodes; Robbie Thompson is the king of pop-culture reference; even Eugene Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner found a voice with Shut Up! Dr Phil and the more serious Of Grave Importance was a great episode.

|But who's doing the cooking?|
|Why did he get to put his hands on Sam's lap?|
AND HELLO!!!!!! Dean's new jacket made its first appearance, and I couldn't help but to drool over my iPad! The whole time I was like.. this is GOLD! OMG he is so hot. I gotta find something I love about this episode, and the award goes to Dean's new jacket. I can watch this episode just to look at Dean and his new sexy jacket. Don't judge me.

What about Dick? He is a dick! Like other big bads, he is going to be destroyed by Dean and Sam. There is no doubt about it. But will we see that resolved in the finale or will it be carried out to season eight? The Leviathan story arc has been ok to me, some moments I like, some moments I don't care so much, because I know Dean and Sam will destroy them eventually -- Leviathans, die die die hurry up and die!
I find myself enjoying James Patrick Stuart's performance as Dick Roman more and more. Yes, there are flaws in the pace of the story this season, but I think James Patrick Stuart had really stepped up and his performance saved a lot of dull Leviathan moments. I really like his 'let's shake hands and hug before I eat you' attitude is awesome! Creepy but Dick is pure evil and James Patrick Stuart had done a fantastic job.
|The winner is... Dean's new tailor-made jacket.|
So where to from here? JUST KILL DICK AND GET BABY BACK! And she will be back! I know it!
The finale...we have come this far...our excitement level will continue to rise... Here is the description once again for the season finale -- 7.23 Survival of the Fittest
SAM AND DEAN STORM SUCROCORP TO TAKE DOWN DICK ROMAN — Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) prepare for battle with Dick Roman (guest star James Patrick Stuart). Dick’s in the final phase of his plan and the Winchesters must team up with Castiel (guest star Misha Collins), Bobby (guest star Jim Beaver), Meg (guest star Rachel Miner) and Kevin (guest star Osric Chau), the prophet, to stop him. However, Dick is one of the smartest enemies they’ve ever faced so it’s a mind game to see who can keep the upper hand. Robert Singer directed the episode written by Sera Gamble.
