Well, I enjoyed that. Granted, not nearly as much as the previous episode, but, unlike many other episodes this season, rewatching Adam Glass’ As Time Goes By for reviewing purposes did not feel like a hardship. The episode not only expands the mythology, but also the Winchester family history, and I think it does both reasonably well, especially considering how complex the mythology has become at this point in the show. Surprisingly enough, it is the mythology aspect of the episode that I find particularly intriguing, and that is certainly a first this season. Still, I do have a couple of problems with Sam and Dean’s characterisation – mostly because of continuity issues, which really seems to be the main problem of S8 – and that is the reason why As Time Goes By is 'only' a good episode in my book, rather than an outstanding one. But the fact that we had two enjoyable episodes in a row now gives me some hope that this season may have turned a corner.

You’re Winchesters. As long as we’re alive, there’s always hope. )
