Episode 8. Everlasting Love

Episode8 3

“True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.” ― Honore de Balzac

This is another anime-original episode. Since the 1960's, a serial killer has been murdering women every 15 years. Sam and Dean head off to meet Dr. Richard. They also see Richard's young second wife, Michelle. Something is off with the couple and they investigate them further. It seems Richard has taken a dark path because of a personal tragedy and it ends up in a tragic confrontation. Also, Bobby starts to appear more on the episodes from here on in.

This was a pretty sad episode. I am not sure why I didn't like it more. The story was good and tragic. It was also very gruesome and bloody. The characters were good and how Sam and Dean solved the case was the old school way. Still, something felt off. It is good I a have comparison to episodes I really liked. Three stars is still good but not great. This episode reminded me of 3.15 "Time Is on My Side" where the doctor took organs for himself to ensure immortality.

Three stars

Episode8 cast


Dean: Four women have been killed so far. And according to the pattern there's going to be another two more.
Sam: Yeah...
Dean: But how come it's every fifteen years?
Sam: I don't know, but if a demon has anything at all to do with this case, those women might have been victimised for a certain purpose. We got to stop this before two more women will be killed.
Richard: Happy Anniversary Abigail, my love.
Abigail: Is that it? One lonely rose?
Richard: I'll add another next year and another the following year. Eventually the bouquet will be so big that you'll barely be able to lift it.

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. :)
