Supernatural 6x01  
The boys are back in town.

    How do you keep your lawn so green?

    It kind of felt a bit like a whole new show, didn't it? It's like coming home after an extended leave and finding everybody's changed yet still the same. You're a bit sad and quite excited to get to know them again.

    Practically respectable golfing soccer mom or not, Dean still gets the barmaid's number without asking. Good to know some things never change, haha. In fact, he's the perfect example that you can't run from yourself - your destiny. Just as he said, he never got out. His OCD-like checking of the house every evening, the pistol and holy water he keeps under their bed, the devil's trap beneath the doormat? You don't fool me, man. At times it almost felt like he's living someone else's life. Like this family (cause it's not the one he wants) is a reward he can't enjoy. Like he pretends to be happy because it was his brother's dying wish. Sucks for him. Also makes me feel bad for Lisa and Ben in a way.

    While I get why Sam kept his return from Dean, was that really the best option? If anything, it seemed to have widened the riff between them. There is awkwardness and loads of it. Sam appears sobered, matter of fact and almost empty and robot-like while Dean now has a whole lot more to lose and a family to protect. Role reversal much?

    The most awkward moment to me was when Dean offers Sam to take the Impala and Sam turning it down (again). A pure sentimental gesture? A cede to Sam to take over the family business as it was handed to Dean by John? Dean thinking it's the best moral support and help he can offer Sam at the moment? Sam turning it down because he doesn't want the memories that come with it? Or just the fact that he needs a faster more reliable car? Or wanting Dean to keep it so Dean has got something just in case? Can't decide whether not taking it was a good or a bad move.

    Speaking of family, the Campbells were a surprise. I see potential, and hey, Mitch Pileggi and Corin Nemec? Who can I thank for that casting? I like. And tight-lipped something something twice removed looks promising too. Here's hoping that the new dynamic works out for the better once we've seen more of them. The Campbells do seem to have some dirty secrets of their own, though. I smell trouble. I imagine shady trades or experimenting on that djinn they captured. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark...

    Side note: Possums kill. And what's up with Dean and yorkies? Inquiring minds want to know.

I can't really put my finger on it, but I didn't really like it.

Can't really decide on it yet either. As I said, it felt a bit like watching a whole new show. It's all there but all very different. The dynamics certainly shifted quite a bit. Should be interesting how this'll play out.

My new saying: SAM IS A ROBOTIC TOOL! :D

Haha. Well, he still got some very nice qualities ^-^

*laughs* i guess

I liked it, I know that. I just don't know exactly how I felt about it, if that made any sense. I kind of wanted Dean to get that chance to stay out of the family business, I wanted Sam to stay with him, though, not ride hunt with the Campbells, who are interesting and cool but they're not SamnDean.

Yeah, it's not real clear where they are going with this. What are the Campbells up to? They sure have some secret plan. It will be interesting to see if Dean will be able to keep his family in the long run. Cause lets face it, he's going to go back hunting, right? Didn't Rufus mention something like that once, that people like them never get out?
faithintheboysfaithintheboys on September 26th, 2010 09:41 pm (UTC)
Yeah, all roads lead back to hunting and Sam. He's going back, I just hope that he'll still keep in touch with Lisa.

Hello you!!

Finally our show is back to mess up with our minds! Lol!

I'm still confused about a lot of things but this wasn't a 'great' episode for me actually.

Word. Now that Eric's gone, Sera will wreak just as much havoc in our minds.

Yeah, it definitely wasn't one of their best episodes but then with heading in new directions that often is the case. Hope the boys will team up again eventually, though. They're like the dynamic duo and I miss that.

Parker Lewis on SPN, enough said :D

Seconded! Also, ever since you posted that vid on facebook, I have that catchy Parker Lewis jingle in my head. :)

Ach, ich weiß auch nicht. Sam & die Campells haben mir gar nicht gefallen ... vor allem nicht Opa Winchester. Ich hoffe, dass es nur daran gelegten hat, dass eine Episode zu kurz ist und deswegen alle einfach so gedropt wurden ...

Was Deans Famile angeht - Dean, Jo & wee!Jodean wäre die perfekte Hunterlovestory gewesen D:

Naja, keeping my fingers crossed, dass es im Laufe der nächsten Folgen bergauf geht!

Nicht wundern, hab grad erst dieses verschollene Kommentar gesichtet. Daher also akute Zusammenlosigkeitsgefahr meinerseits.

Hmm, hab Jo irgendwie immer schon eher als Deans kleine Schwester gesehen. Als Pärchen kann ich mir die gar nicht vorstellen ^-^

Was die Campbells angeht kann man ja immer noch nicht wirklich mehr sagen als nach 6x01. Vielleicht kommt ja noch mal mehr Hintergrund in der Richtung. Nach der Folge gestern jedenfalls bin ich mir nicht mehr so sicher wie viel die wirklich wissen. In Bezug auf Sam und überhaupt. Hmm. Fragen, Fragen.

I was actually really worried in that scene. It would have been so easy to have the writer's have Dean flirt back -- but I guess I need to have more faith in them, as he clearly didn't.

Finding old comments I didn't know were here \o/ Must be Saturday.

Speaking of faith, I really do hope the writers will shed some light on what's going on. Agonizing of this is driving me insane.

Sqquuueee! Thank you for the almost-Impala!

You're welcome :D
