Supernatural 4x03  
*flail* OH SHOW, YOU ROCK THIS SEASON! Every time I think I know this show, they prove to me that I ain't seen nothing yet.

BACKSTORY!!! MYTHOLOGY!!!! My favorite type of episodes and this one had me on edge from the very first second to the very last.

  • Finally. Finally we know what Mary was apologizing for to Sam at the end of Home. Intentionally or not, I love how they pick up on things from the past three seasons, spice them up and put a whole new meaning to them. Makes it so much fun to watch and REwatch this show over and over again.

    So, Mary was raised a hunter. Wasn't expecting this turn. Well maybe I juggled with the idea, but it still surprised me to see them go in that direction. So exciting and tragic. It's almost like their family indeed is cursed - evil haunts them, deals are made...

    And all the small things you find in the boys later on. How John's style in clothing resembles that of Sam in particular. How Mary and (season 1) Sam share the same dreams and wishes (and how they both get crushed), and how Dean and John share the love for cars. How Mary's lost her parents to the demon just as Sam and Dean lost theirs to the job, too.

    Family business, there's just no excaping it. And they tried so hard. How heartbreaking is it to get a glimpse of this young John still believing in happily ever after. Being everything a hunter isn't. And just comparing this to the rough kind of marked man he would become makes it all the more tragic. How much must he have hated himself for raising his boys into this very life of demons and war and death. Especially if he knew that this was the very last thing his wife would have wanted. Looking back, it adds a whole new level of angst to his character.

  • Also, I couldn't love them more for the time frame of the flashback. I was waiting for some cool stuff to happen on Walpurgis, and there it is.

  • THE IMPALA! Who would have thought it's Dean who convinced John to buy this piece of beauty? It's still going to be badass when it's 40. ♥ He would know.

  • Major kudos to casting for this episode. Everybody was sheer amazing. I could see the later Mary and John in both of them. And then Mitch Pileggi, of course, who hit the ball out of the park with this one. I liked him on The X-Files but I loved him and his performance here. Oh and, it's always a pleasure to see you flash your yellow eyes, you SOB. You're like my favorite badie on the show.

  • Dean was as enjoyable as ever and he never fails to amuse. "MOM IS A BABE. - I'm going to Hell. Again. Bwahah. Oh Dean, don't ever change, okay? ♥

  • Also, I'm glad I knew ahead of time that Sam was only going to appear briefly this week. This way I wasn't waiting for him to come on screen all episode long. Gladly, all the thrilling backstory sort of dealing with Sam in the big picture so made up for it. It's been a while since an episode has made me feel like time's flying by.

  • So the angels are stumbling around in the dark just like everyone else as to what Azazel's endgame is. Well, it sure ain't good. I'm very curious as to what role Sam is going to play. Not only will Dean need to find out, too. But it looks like he'll have his plate full trying to protect his brother from whatever path Azazel laid out for him but also from Castiel and his angel brothers. Hell, I. Can't. Wait.

John I don’t think I ever told you this, but….the day you were born, you know what I did?
Sam No
John I put a hundred bucks into a savings account for you. I did the same thing for your brother. It was a college fund. And every month, I’d put in another hundred dollars, until…. Anyway, my point is, Sam, that…this is never the life that I wanted for you.

Just... (((((show)))))

Damn the writers for that stab to the heart and twisting the blade. Oh but they do angst so beautifully.

I've decided to ignore Mary's backstory and that box full of clichés they built this episode upon. Like Mary being a hunter? PLEASE. They couldn't come up with something slightly more interesting?

I haven't felt this much hate for an episode since RSAM. Somebody fire Jeremy Carver soon. I mean please--even I can offer more than this piece of dreck, and I charge less...

I'm in denial.

God, just when I thought that maybe the season wasn't going to be so bad...
Steffilegoline on October 3rd, 2008 11:07 am (UTC)
Also, the sheer dimension to which this episode sucked eats me up alive. It just...whoa. NO words.

I think they closed a circle with this episode.

I also think it was necessary for Dean to know more. Otherwise he coudn't do his job.

At least they gave us loads of hints that answered old questions and raised new :) I like that it's always in motion.

I also think it was necessary for Dean to know more. Otherwise he coudn't do his job.
Agreed. Now I'm curious as to how much Dean's going to tell Sam...

This was an excellent episode! Everything just all came together!! I loved it!!

Same here. I missed myth arc eps like this one :)
Miss K: Jensentinkerfairy on October 3rd, 2008 02:38 pm (UTC)
oh me neither and we'll so have to wait *tearshairout*
but this episode was just amazing in so many ways.

*clings* Hope they'll pick up on some questions again real soon on the show. So need to know asap. *runs around in circles*

Ich fand diese Ep auch total toll!
Mir macht es auch Spaß mit der ganzen Mythologie und so, weil das ja irgendwie das Gebiet ist, das ich studiere! Und ich auch viele Dinge auf Anhieb erkenne und zuordnen kann ^^

Ah wie cool. Das ist quasi nochmal ein Lernbonus oben drauf ^^ Hoffentlich gibt's in der Staffel noch öfters so tolle Myth Arc Folgen.

I am thinking this will lead off to a brother good v evil showdown by the end of the season and the 5th season there will be some MAJOR fighting between Sam and Dean to get them back together before the apocalypse. Long shot first guess here. I hope the series ends well. I don't want a Butch Cassidy ending.
ヴェレーナ: dean nice shotongiara on October 3rd, 2008 09:16 pm (UTC)
Yup, guess that's inevitable and actually something I'd love to see. As for the series finale. I don't care so much whether it's a happy one or not as long as it's smartly done.

I'm still very flail-y over this one! Just... gah. SO MUCH. And it took me most of the episode to stop looking at Mary's father as Agent Skinner, hah.
ヴェレーナ: j2 texasongiara on October 3rd, 2008 09:18 pm (UTC)
LOL Don't you hate love it when fandoms collide? Mitch was awesome, though. And a completly different character from his role on The X-Files.

This really was the most tragic episode. Everything just HURT. Ah, it was so sad, but I loved it! I CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK!!!!
ヴェレーナ: sd doorwayongiara on October 3rd, 2008 09:19 pm (UTC)
But they do tragic and hurty so beautifully. Hope they'll keep up this level of awesomeness for most of the season :)

MOM IS A BABE. - I'm going to Hell. Again.
Oh, Dean. &hearts

Also, I'm glad I knew ahead of time that Sam was only going to appear briefly this week.
I didn't, but it didn't matter. The episode worked just they way it was so I can live with hardly no Sam for one week. As long as he's back next week. ;)

I concur. And just how heartbreaking was it to finally see their past? And Sam better have his butt back on screen next episode ^-^
