What a weird Being Erica episode.
The Dean flashbacks and reunions worked pretty well. The kid playing teen Dean really nailed the scene where Papa Winchester arrives at the worst time to pick him up -- a nice bittersweet moment.
As soon as we were introduced to the owner of the troubled boys home, my first thought was: Josh Brolin?
The monster of the week was a pretty lousy "Mama" rip-off. I was hoping the writer would put a unique Supernatural spin on the idea of a protective yet insane ghost, but he just copied "Mama" beat for beat -- even going so far as to use the child drawings as crudely illustrated exposition.
An uneven episode, IMO.
