Huh. Go figure. I actually loved “Golden Time”. I’m wracking my brain trying to figure out why, because it wasn’t a complicated or fast moving story by any means. Maybe because it finally ended with a win. Maybe it’s because I watched a really crappy episode of “The Flash” before it so the bar was very low. Maybe it was just the wine. Either way, it still looked good on the rewatch, so they did something right.
Oh sure, I could nitpick the canon, which did skate along some questionable lines, but hey, I was hopeful in the end. That hasn’t happened in a while. Plus it seems that canon is in “do-over” mode anyway, so my mood after an episode now determines how much I hand wave the embellishments. This week, I’m waving like a beauty queen.
This week is a great example of how MotW episodes should be done: using them to examine our characters. They even gave us a double dose of monsters to examine the brothers and Castiel both.
What is there to say about “Golden Time” really? It was a fine episode, nothing outstanding but far from a terrible episode. Eileen joins the growing list of familiar faces gracing season fifteen – but perhaps not as a one-stop appearance – and Castiel came away seemingly renewed. All great things. Still the episode lacked a punchiness and vigor in many respects. Let’s consider.
