I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about Sam’s evolution in the series. There are three points I want to touch on.

When I reviewed “Paint It Black” the previous offering from writing Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Lemming, I said it was the most boring episode of Supernatural ever. With “Dark Dynasty,” they’ve lowered the bar further and written the dumbest episode ever. Filled with poor characterization, terrible dialogue, and lazy plotting, this episode had this viewer experiencing a gamut of emotions from stunned disbelief to unintended hilarity. I can’t even feel anger anymore at the bad writing. They don’t deserve that much investment. Read the rest of this page »

At the very least, fast-forward through the two secondary plot-lines for Sam and Dean’s story. I don’t normally make recommendations like that, but “Paint It Black” was the third season ten episode from writing partners Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming, and one can only hope the last.
