- GORE! Grim gore! There was actual good gore this episode. Now I just have to remember to have breakfast before watching the episode because maggots? Really?! Man. *heaves*
- The way they interwove the monster of the week with the big myth arc was neat. Pushing the story forward and being entertaining and scary all at once. You gotta love a good witch story.
- The writers have a morbid fascination of killing rabbits. Poor little guy. *pats Dean*
- Wow, the boys sure know their herbology. This takes geekiness to a whole new level.
- Detectives Bachmann, Turner
Overdrive? Haha, I bet this one grew on Robert Singer’s head ^___^
- Hands up who else is in love with the scene right before Dean keels over? *raises arm* It’s kinda like a reversal of that scene we got in Fresh Blood just not quite. Dean’s missing the old role allocation as much as Sam is – even if for slightly different reasons – and instead of hopefulness, the knowledge that Sam’s just trying to be more like his older brother for life without Dean feels like a punch in the guts. It’s all the unspoken implications, love and fear that comes with this awareness that makes this scene so hurtfully bittersweet. Oh boys.
- Don’t mess with Dean, witch. It’s going to put the wrath of a very fierce and slightly demonic Sam on you. It shouldn’t be as hot as it is seeing him all stone-faced bent at the wheel of the impala on his way to vengeance.
- But Sammy, how could you leave Dean alone like that? Am going to have a hard time forgiving you that one. And just how lost does Dean look like when Ruby marches in? *hugs him* And still, he’s the badass. Jensen totally rocked that line. You wann a kill me? Get in line, bitch. Me likey.
- So, that piss poor demon army doesn’t want Sam
and his neckanymore? He’s so gonna kick your dead asses.
- Great, I just know I’m going to sit here all summer going nuts over the idea of a new king rising in the west. *pulls hair* Who could it be?
- The looks on both Sam and Dean’s faces the moment they thought Ruby turned them over were killing me. They both looked so wretched and guilty.
- Who would have thought Dean would be genuinely surprised by the sexual tension between Ruby and Tammi. Hee.
- Can we have Sam splashing water in his face and brushing his hair back every episode, please? *is in her bunk*
- I feel actual chemistry between Dean and Ruby in that last scene. Maybe it’s the fact they potentially share the same destiny. Maybe it’s the fact they both try to protect Sam. Maybe her revelations gave him something to fight for. Who's giving their humanity up without a fight, right?
- The backstory they gave Ruby works fine. I couldn’t have asked for anything more because this way she’s bound to both Sam and Dean. She was human, she didn’t want any of it and still she managed to go through hell, literally, turn out a demon but still carrying a soul.
- Dean is hellbound and maybe it’s not the fact that he’s going to leave Sam alone anymore that’s the most terrifying. Maybe it’s that he could turn into the very thing they hunt. *wibbles* And just how much does it suck that she doesn’t have means to break him out of the deal after all.
- The thing that caught me by surprise, made me think and then actually started a chain reaction of new possibilities is the fact that in the original script, it hadn’t been Dean who stabbed the demon over and over again and pitchforked her pretty ass back to hell.
Come to think of it, I actually like this version better. I don’t know what it’s supposed to mean, but it’s certainly leaving a hell of a lot of interesting options to dismantle.
- I remember what it's like. Being human. And that right there is a spark of hope, right?
- Caps: all clickable thumbs! I even colored them a bit.
Detectives Bachmann and Turner. Hell yeah.
Why does the rabbit always get screwed in the deal?
demonic!Sam = ♥
Every hellbound soul, everyone turns into something else.
This show rocks my salt. It's so good to have you back, Supernatural.
