Supernatural 6x07  
    Me Charlie, you angles?

  • Do you feel how empty you are?
    Finally, the cat's out of the sack. So Dean's stuck with the soulless guy. Took them all long enough to find out. ;P Speaking of, there's been some discussing this with raths_kitten and the definition or the function of a soul. I mean, isn't Sam too good for being soulless? Can one simply equate soul with conscience? There have been references to Sam not knowing right from wrong but it's lacking consistence. Clearly, he is aware of the "bad guys" and what his mission is. It's just that his means got more reckless. IDK, just brain storming here.

    Kind of made me think back to Buffy and how downright evil soulless Angelus was as opposed to haunted-by-the-knowledge-of-all-the-ones-he-killed Angel. Hmm. Well, it's just different concepts, I can go with that.

    Either way, my sick fangirl self can't wait for them to return Sam's tortured soul. May there be loads of angst and puppy eyes. Just don't make me wait till the end of the season for that to happen, okay?

  • Me Charlie, you angels?
    Aside from the above rambling, I really loved this episode. Though it's still a bit bumpy at times, I felt like the episode was told from both Sam and Dean's perspectives. They're a team again and they can still kick ass. We're even back to Dean flying around the room and Sam being choked. Maybe I missed that most of all. Yes, I'm shallow.
    And it's largely back to their old roles. Dean being the level-headed leader protector and Sam being the one that everything evil has got a plan for. They're at their best when working that formula IMO. At least it was one of the major reasons I fell in love with this show to begin with.

  • The king of Hell's cabana boy.
    I wonder what it is that Crowley's controlling Samuel with? There's got to be more to this. I smell a tragedy waiting to happen.

  • I'm a developer.
    First I got to say, I adore Crowley. He's sarcastic, ambitious (I mean, you go working your way up in Hell. That takes some patience and tricks), has wicked powers and a cute accent. In short, he's probably the closest thing to a shady ally they're going to get. It's got some benefits. Which is fine and I enjoy his scenes heaps but I'm missing the presence of a real menace this season. Something frightening looming over their heads. Something epic, something dark. I think overstreets would agree. ;P


In short, they've got their mojo back. ♥

ZOMG! Now I spoiled myself, I haven't watched the ep yet. *facepalm*

See? That happens when I'm dumb enough to click on every link with the words SPN, Jensen, Jared, Misha or Christian Kane in it without even looking if there's a spoiler warning in it. Or the title of the entry. *headdesk* *facepalm*

Ah, I think I'm just overtired right now. Maybe I should take a nap?

Stupid me is stupid. *g* (Well, at least I stopped reading as soon as I realized what I'm doing.)

TBH, I thought for the last few episodes that Sam probably is soulless. I mean, it was kinda obvious, right?

Long day, eh?

It was obvious for a couple of episode what the writers were hinting at, yes. The matter of discussion was more or less their definition of soul. As in whether or not Sam's been acting way too good for being soulless and all. Guess their's is simply a more narrow or more loose interpretation. Depending on how you look at it.

Anyway, have fun watching ;P And get some sleep.

I agree, that is whyt I loved most about the ep.

Hope they keep this up. I need more brothers time again :)

And don't forget instinct. Clearly instinct is also tied to the soul. And sleeping. o.O

But yes, I love Crowley! And hey, we still have that war in heaven and still wanting the apocalypse and who knows what kind of deals Crowley has really struck along his way. Maybe he's doing deals with angels.

The sleeping thing is interesting, though. Isn't sleeping actually bound to the body and its right functioning? I thought dreaming while sleeping is proof that the soul/mind never sleeps but that it's just the body needing sleep? *scratches head* Hmm, maybe they would argue since Sam probably can't dream without a soul that's why he's not sleeping? Confusion.

I'm sure Crowley likes to keep off the radar of the real nasty ones. He strikes me as one who likes to enjoy his liberty.

Yes. It's what I wrote in my ep reaction that nobody read. LOL. I saw that on House once. A girl had insomnia so bad, her organs started failing. It's just not humanly possible to not sleep for a longer period of time. Definitely not for a full year. o.O Also, what the fuck has he been doing all this time? Written 20 novels?

Maybe Crowley put in some super strength when keeping Sam's soul?

what the fuck has he been doing all this time? Written 20 novels?
Working out. Putting together a fitness program?

Also, episode review? When did you post it, I think I missed it.
Veraraths_kitten on November 13th, 2010 01:45 am (UTC)
True that! Since he did need him to bring in the big baddies. Samuel for the brain and Sammy for the muscle. How's that working out for you, season 1 emo boy and patented researcher? LOL.

Sleeping with hookers. Getting money to sleep with hookers. ;)

I have no doubt the thing Samuel's thing involves Deana and Mary. (Does he have any more children? There was a brother, but was he killed off in canon? Other than comics?)

It's moments like that I fail fandom. I DON'T KNOW. Hmm. I'm sure we could dig info up about this somewhere on the web, though.
