Good but the concept could have been better used
20 September 2019 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

This does everything an opening episode should do. It sets up most of the stakes for the season, while expanding on the mythos of the show. The western standoff that makes up the 3rd act is a really a lot of fun and I am glad the show tapped into that vibe a little bit here. The hunter couple that only appeared in this episode are fun guest stars-and they do a good job of providing a community reaction to the ending of 2nd season.

But for all that I thought the episode wastes some good ideas for demons. Having the personification of the 7 deadly sins really works as some villains. It roots the antagonism in real world lore while given actors some notions to chew on. Pride, especially, was great in his 3 minutes and the season could have done more with that character. (Imagine if the split the 7 up a bit like the Horsemen in season 5 instead). Even if you want to avoid building episodes around the 7 sins for future episodes Demons being human vices made flesh never exist, really, outside this episode. It is a shame.
