Beyond that, there were other things that bugged. One in particular: when the deputy points the gun at Sam, Sam just stands there until Ghostfacer A jumps in front of him (sorry, I don't even like these guys enough to remember which one is which). This seems really out of character - Sam is a warrior, and he would have been lunging for the guy or jumping out of the way as the deputy rolled into position. But he had to stay there so Ghostfacer A could stand in front of him and therefore Ghostfacer B would have to shoot the deputy to save Ghosterfacer A.
But it wasn't all bad. Sam looked awfully pretty. I liked the way the brothers work together seamlessly, even when they're not in rhythm otherwise. And the story about Sam's broken arm was adorable. Look at poor Sammy when Dean tells that story, and also when Dean is about to get his throat cut. He still loves his brother so much.
As far as I'm concerned, the biggest positive to this episode is that the elephant in the room is finally being addressed. Not by Dean, not yet, but we have to believe that the anvil hit him as squarely as it hit us. I hope this means something will happen in the next episode.
Also? Writers? Did you forget something? Like, some kind of mark? Just saying.
