Here's the thing: Dean is never more honest than when he's under some magic/possessed. I wasn't 100% on this last episode (Confederate spectre zombie thing wat) but moments like Dean possessed and about to shoot Sam and moments like those ways back in Skin are my favorite. Those are the reasons I like Dean, because he admits he's fucked up and is basically just a lost boy. That's the Dean I love and can support. The asshole hypocrite is the one I want to punch because get over yourself, really.
So, yeah. I liked this episode for that.
