Oooh, shapeshifters, gotta love them, what mayhem they can cause huh?!! :P Of course I always love a good Doppelganger story, a character facing or fighting themselves and this one didn't disappoint.

Two Deans, what's not to like about this episode! :D There was also some sympathy for the shape shifter almost as it was a product of a chance genetic configuration. Still its need to kill in its frustration at its condition takes that moment away. The way it changed and shed the skin was gross, great use of makeup effects there!

I always like how an evil supernatural character always seems to bring out Sam and Dean's uncomfortable truths. Always a great way to learn more about our two lovely main characters!

Honesty really is the best way to go.

TBH, I find shifters to be one of the most sympathetic monsters out there. This guy, plus one of them in season 4 (or 5, I forget which) makes me feel sorry for them.

Two Dean's? Why yes, thank you! :D And the boys tied up......I think this just might be my favorite episode ever :P

I think Dean has some daddy issues.....and how ironic that they talk about telling the truth and not lying.....

When he was shedding his skin....that was pretty gross!

But the fight between the boys.....that was amazing!
