"Ashes to Ashes" Season 1, Episode 9

Episode Recap: "Ashes to Ashes" Ben: "Does he still have a chance with you?" Andi: "Maybe." This may actually be indicative of how people confusingly act in real life, but if that's the case then I'm not used to these real "human emotions" in my TV. "Maybe"? If Andi hadn't lost a fan in me before, she certainly did then. I suppose the bigger point of her indecision was to put it up next to the Devil's purposeful indecision and to say that any way you slice it, you shouldn't treat people that way. Well, maybe it's actually Andi who's the Devil's daughter because, yes, that's mean, girl, even if that wasn't your intention. It was pretty great seeing Melinda Clarke as Mimi, acting outside her evil wench role on The O.C.. So the Devil's girlfriend is a sweetheart and the Devil likes to go by "Jerry" and vacay in Cabo? I love this show. One thing in this episode that kind of freaked me out was when Sam woke up in the coffin. When Sam slips into the Devil's example sequences before he goes ghost hunting, it makes me wonder if what's happening to him in those seemingly alternate worlds is real. Like, is it all Nightmare on Elm Street-style where if you die in the sequence/dream you die in real life? I figure that unless Sam messes up pretty badly, we won't ever have to find that out. But waking up in a coffin is no way to start a day. Tonight's escaped spirit seemed particularly menacing to me because of both his crazy strength (he brought on psudo-Earthquakes), his bad-guy nature (he sold off dead people's body parts when he was alive, ick) and he had a deadly vengenace for a very large number of still-living people. We saw the Devil much angrier than usual this time around, really creepily so, and all becuase Sam was concentrating so much on helping the living instead of capturing the dead. The Devil seems to forget that that's the one thing about his job that helps Sam sleep at night. Or in true Devil style, he knows and doesn't care. At least tonight Sam got the kind of validation about his job that he rarely gets - he's actually making a positive difference, according to Ben's grandmother. And despite all the dangers, Sam stood up to the Devil again in this episode, to defend Mimi's decision to leave him, even though the stakes seem much higher for him now. It reminds me that instead of just being a goofus, Sam is proving he's actually hero material too. Speaking of the grandma, does that mean that she's yet one more person that Sam has unknowingly put in danger by involving her in his side work? And yet again, I can't figure out Sam's dad's intentions. It was odd to me to have him pop up in this episode, giving Sam tips on when he should let someone go. While I suppose that's the kind of talk a guy might actually have with his son, I just don't trust the dude. I thought it was a pretty cool episode, and we even got to see what Ben's family is like. Soon we'll get to meet Sock's mom too, and that I can't wait for. Awesome quotes time: Sock: "I wanna be the prince of darkness. No, whats below prince? Duke, I want to be the duke of darkness." Sam: "Just for the record, Sock embarrasses you more than me, right?" Ben: "Absolutely." Sock: "Damn skippy." Ben: "You know, I never thought the devil had genitals." Sam: "What am I hanging onto? A glimmer of hope? I could wait forever and miss out on living my life." See you all next week, in the company of Satan's possible demon-spawn. Can't wait!
