    Default About a Boy (1012)

    Episode synopsis:

Unfortunately, Dean finds this information out the hard way after he becomes Hansel‘s next victim and reverts to his 14 year old self."

    This was a nothing episode for me but I liked it. The kid did a good job playing Dean. I believe he played Dean before. The episode reminded me of Once Upon a Time. I wish they were able to do a crossover with that shoe.

    I finally got the chance to catch up on some of my shows, and watched this episode a few days ago.

    The kid(Dylan Everett) also played dean in the episode where Dean went back to his old boy's home. He played a good young Dean then, but he did a good "old Dean in a young body" too. I bet it is very different to play something like that, because instead of playing a younger version of a character, you have to try and mimic everything another actor(Jensen Ackles) usually does, because the character isn't actually any different.

    This episode kept reminding me of the Stargate episode 'Fragile Balance' on seeing the older self ending up in the teenage body. I enjoyed watching the young Dean as much as I did the young O'Neill, the actor got Dean's mannerisms down really well.

    The witch's accent was hilarious, going from a weird 'German' to weird 'Scottish' at times, I couldn't take her seriously as a vicious 'child' killer and cannibal! I couldn't decide if she was being played as comedy or seriously since it failed as both! Supernatural's monsters used to be so much more twisted and surprising, even the human ones in episodes such as 'The Benders'.
