SoCal, I didn't realize necromancers were able to do that either, Harper mentioned something about magic but I don't know if that was what it was.
I too thought the Sam and Charlie stuff was a little slow, but then I realized when we used to see Sam and Dean sitting and waiting and realized that sometimes hunting can be boring, though some of the dialogue was a little slow as well. I did love the bit with Sam and the fidget spinner, just that little moment was so special to me, Sam with a smile on his face and doing something silly, we don't get many shots of him like that anymore, he seems to have so much on his shoulders that I loved seeing the silly side of him.
I am just ok on AU Charlie, we will see what happens with that, I do think I like the more serious part of her and not he silliness we saw with the other Charlie.
I really liked the Dean and Jack part of the show, I absolutely loved everything about Jack, his facial expressions were just the right mix of innocence and adorable. He has such an earnestness about him and he wants to do so much good and he has learned the Winchester way of holding onto all the pain and misery you can and blaming yourself for everything. When he and Dean "faced off" in the library and he called Dean an old man and the looks on both of their faces and especially Dean's right before he walked away was priceless. That was hilarious, I think Jensen could have chemistry with just about anyone. I think Alex has been a great addition to the show, but if this cough/mysterious illness he has doesn't fix itself and something happens to him I will not be happy. I also noticed he is Cas-like and they keep putting him in tan colors when he is on screen most o the time, I guess that is deliberate?
Jack wanting to Dean to tell him everything about sex over the phone as if it would only take a minute. LOL
I am at a loss to figure out the meaning of the Musca relatives coming to get the dead one, what was that about? Michael is still out there and this is the 6th episode of a 20 episode season, he needs to pop back up soon so we have time to find out what he is really after, I don't think making supercharged monsters is it.
The one thing I didn't really care for was the whole episode had a cutsie feel to it, the music choices and some of the shots were just too cute and it felt more like they were trying to hard but that could have been because Richard Speight directed it, and his episodes tend to be a little more heavy on the visual heaviness.
