Episode 7. Temptation of the Demon

Episode7 1

“Lead us not into temptation. Just tell us where it is; we'll find it.” ― Sam Levenson

This is an anime-original episode. Sam and Dean meet up with their old friend Bobby. As they track down clues to John's whereabouts, they find out that a buddy from John's Marine days has been murdered in a strange fashion. You get back story for Mary's murder and the first sighting of the colt. A woman makes a deal for a loved one that will have drastic consequences for many lives. We also see more flashbacks about Jessica and that fateful evening.

This was the most artistic episode from the group. It had beautiful imagery and I actually liked the new backstory of Meg and her mother. It was very sad. Also, this episode shows clearly how dangerous and destructive is the YED. His influence destroyed an innocent and good woman and I felt for her. We also get a lot of Supernatural lore in this episode which is always great. Demons, deals, Sulfur, salt circles to name a few. Nice small touch was the little zizzle sound and tiny smoke when YED entered the church. Also this story foreshadows 2.01 "In My Time of Dying".

Dean: Put it down. Nice and slow.
Sam: He said drop the gun. - Slowly take the jacket off.
Dean: Huh? You gotta be kidding me. Bobby?
Sam: What?
Bobby: Hey there Sammy. Hiya Dean. Long time no see.
Dean: She definately prayed hard enough. I'm sure her daughter will live a long and healthy life.
Sam: Yeah, I think so too.
Dean: Are you crying you big baby?
Sam: No, shuddup. I wasn't crying.
Bobby: Boys please, no fighting in front of a church. It's bad Karma.
Dean: What, you're a saint now Bobby?
Bobby: I just don't think your dad would want you to fight in front of a church!

I enjoy these articles about the anime series Lilah, and it was interesting seeing the same scenes done live and in the anime version. I have to say, I really prefer the live versions. For one thing, it's disconcerting hearing Dean voiced by someone other than Jensen. But also, something about the dialogue in the anime versions seems kind of exaggerated, or at least less natural. It reminds me of the difference between a movie and a play. But I enjoy these little snippets of the anime. Any version of SPN is good in my book!

Thanks, and I do like adding the comparisons. You can see on them too how detailed some of the scenes in the anime has been and almost fully copied from the live action version. It has been pretty fun to write these too. :)

Thanks for another Anime article!

I remember that Vegas episode well. Definitely one of the best anime original eps it has. I'd love to see it in the live action ha :D

Me too! Poor Dean. I don't know. It felt so much like a live action episode in a way so it was immediately likable. And the story was not straight forward. It had a twist. :)
