Supernatural 4x19

Wow, that one took me by surprise.

    We're not exactly a nuclear family.

  • Let's not beat around the bush, I have loads of issues with the whole lost brother thing BUT the whole Winchester angst with a season 1/2 feel to it that story line brought with it made up for a whole lot of it. Kinda glad, though, that there won't be a third Winchester brother riding in the backseat of the Impala. They just don't strike me as the threesome types ;P

  • It's kinda funny how half the story line remotely concerning John is dealt with on cell phones. When do they ever recharge them all anyway?

  • The snapshot of their nomadic, spartan life at the beginning of the episode was love. A sleep drunken Dean unfolding himself from the Impala's front seat, Sam brushing teeth while leaning on the hood, smelly tuna sandwich from the day before...
    And then that beautiful, vast and secluded place they're at that just segregates them even more from the normal people was just nicely done.

  • Agent Nugent. Haha. ♥

  • Paper, rock, scissors. For the second time. I may went all awww.

  • It's interesting to see just how differently the boys reacted to the big news.

    "I think it's too late for us. But for Adam, he's still got a chance."
    To me it looked like Dean went from angry to protective within a heartbeat. It only makes it more pronounced just how much he worshiped John. Seems like he had a hard time accepting that John - who'd always preeched just how important family was - may have lied to him about Adam. Especially since John and Adam shared ordinary father-son activities (albeit scarcly), that had always been forsaken to Sam and Dean.

    And it's the moment Dean understands what John was trying to do that he's going all hellbend on doing the same. My heart just broke for Dean here. He's always acting all devil-may-care but in fact, he's the one who'd do everything for his family. His determination to protect Adam and do everything in his power to grant him a normal life reminded me why I love Dean so much.

    "So it's over for you?" - "It's never over."
    Took me a bit longer to link the rebellious wayward son that went off to Stanford to this rough, emotionally detached Sam here. It pained me to see him giving that no-emotional-attachements speech to Adam so easily. Sure, Sam's learned all this the hard way and maybe that's exactly why it hurts so much to see him having turned into the person he's hated so much. It's just so sad how this life has hardened him in such a way and made him sort of blind to other options. Almost like he's given up hope. Or like Dean's phrased it, 2it's too late for them." *gulps*

  • Ngh. Dean beating the crap out of the ghouls there was hot and reminded me how I missed those fight scenes lately. Guns are cool and so are psychic powers but there's nothing like some fancy martial arts moves. *is shallow*

  • The bits and pieces of implicit John angst maybe killed me a little. Had to imagine him seeing his second chance in Adam. And how he was trying to make up for some of the things he could never give Sam and Dean like taking Adam to baseball games. *sobs* Looks like John had a lot more demons than could have been assumed.

  • HURT SAM!!!! STRAPPED DOWN ON A TABLE!!! BLOODY!!! I approve.

  • I absolutely loved the closing scene even though it ripped out my heart and stomped the sucker flat.
    Dean: "You know, I finally get why you and dad butted heads so much. You two are practically the same person. I mean, I worshiped the guy. I dressed like him. I acted like him.I listen to the same music. But you are more like him than I will ever be."
    Oh, boys. *heartfisting*
