Sam gets to handle the brooding load for a while as the action centers around a guy who has a couple of things in common with Sam 1 Andys mom turns out adopted mom also burned to death in a fire when Andy was 6 months old and 2 Hes developed an ability of his own mind control Then this whole thing becomes a good-twinevil-twin story when Andys long-lost brother Ansem enters the picture complete with the same ability to control peoples thoughts This was an OK episode with some really funny moments Dean got to be there for Sammy whose visions seem to be getting more painful and more erratic Its definitely looking like the visions erupt when theyre connected to other children like Sammy However sometimes Sam can get there on time to save the day other times he cant Then it turns out the evil mind-control twin guy never lost a mother in a fire when he was 6 months old which pretty much means the Demon can probably target anyone Im left wondering why some
Another week another seriously good hour of TV Loved the use of Journeys Wheel in the Sky for the recap Probably my favorite classic-rock recap since Salvation Loved the way they incorporated Everybody Loves a Clown and ended on the sound of the crowbar Dean dropped to the ground after he went to town on the trunk of the Impala Speaking of the Impala how freakin awesome was it to see that baby running again The Impalas back sos ACDCs Back in Black It just does a Supernatural fans heart good to see Dean at the wheel Sammy in the passenger seat the two of them bantering back-and-forth Things were finally lighthearted for a little bit a refreshing change after getting so much heavy angst in this seasons first two episodes not to mention the darkness and angst of Season 1s last three episodes The show paid the car a nice tribute After all the Impala is pretty much another character on the showThe case that Dean was so giddy to take on was real

Question: Will The O.C. return to its 8 pm/ET slot? The move to 9 pm/ET last season conflicted with CSI. They are both great shows, and I enjoy watching one then the other, not flipping back and forth and missing things.
Answer: For the moment, and unless Fox changes its mind between now and The O.C.'s Nov. 2 premiere date, the show will still air at 9 pm on Thursdays. (Two new comedies will provide the lead-in, though I'll be amazed if Happy Hour makes it past the baseball hiatus.) In the spirit of public service, let me prepare you for the inevitable. This is almost certainly The O.C.'s last hurrah. Not only will it still be facing CSI, but Grey's Anatomy is going to crush it even further.
