dean believes his victory is pyrrhic

Emmy consideration and SPN 2x22 (spoilers for finale)

Man, do I wish that Jensen's Emmy ep was "What Is, and What Should Never Be" rather than "All Hell Breaks Loose." I really, really do. 2x20 was not only a Dean-centric episode; it was built around a concept that simply wouldn't have worked without JA's stellar performance. I'd argue that though he had his moments in 2x22, the episode itself was much more mechanical, plot-driven rather than character-driven. Sure, I believed his whole performance, but it was an episode that didn't really demand the same level of absolute faith as WIaWSNB.
