I like the fact that Sam was attracted to Meg, because Dean is usually the one with the leering eye. (Evidence: that babe of a bartender!) Where Dean seems to go for the looks and the one-night stand, Sam is attracted more to the emotional resonance. Meg told him everything he needed to hear when they first met, and it left him vulnerable as a result. Even though he kept his head in the game for the most part, that attraction clearly kept him off balance.
Meg is a complicated and powerful adversary, and part of me wishes that she had remained a more subtle enemy. She doesn’t give away much in this episode, other than the fact that John is the main target and the sons are considered good bait, but there’s no chance of complicating the relationship between Sam and Meg after this episode.
