Okay, I'll admit, I've been a little harsh on our little show the past two episodes. I accept that eventually I'll have to lower my standards, but for now, there was one huge pleasant surprise to come out of "Defending Your Life." I didn't realize it until I was creating the screenshots for our Photo Gallery.. My my, this ended up being one of the best hair episodes ever. Certainly the best by far for season seven.
Now, as you all probably realize, I have a thing over Sam Winchester's hair. I turn into a puddle when I see things like this:
Or this ...
Or this ...
Or...HOLY MOTHER OF CHUCK!!! IS THAT A SMILE?????? (thud...)
But, something extraordinary is happening this season. Dean is growing his hair! When it comes to some impeccable wave on top, Sammy's floppy mop can't compare. I mean, look at this sheer perfection:
Extreme guilt ain't giving his coif any strife. What a profile!
Not hurting much here either.
Look, another smile! Maybe great hair is making these guys feel better?
Dean's even got a slight bang issue going here:
Sam though, bang control remains a pronounced issue. His hair does what it wants. You think a trim is in order? Bite your tongue you heathen!
There's more waves in this shot than a beach. Perfect synergy between front and back! The waves are even going in the same direction! Man, these guys do have some great chemistry.
Sam still has an advantage though. Fly away hair is the best kind of hair!
Wow, this smile thing is infectous!
Makes me happy all over...
A drink, a pretty girl, great hair, life is good!
You try again Sammy...
Um, not quite there yet.
That's a bitchface Sam.
Yeah, that too.
You're not even trying, are you?
Ah well, what's great about all this is they saved the best for last. Sam, Dean, Impala, beautiful landscape, great hair.
So color me happy after all. I guess "Defending Your Life" gets a win. Here's hoping that if Winchester times are bad, at least the hair is good.
