- Where to start? I loved the plot and the general us-against-the-world feel to it. And as much as it breaks my heart, I love to hate to see the brothers fall apart. But first things first.
- Maybe I'll give him a back rub.
It's amazing how easygoing and caring the interaction between Bobby and the boys has become. When it comes to chemistry, it's just a joy to watch. As for Bobby, poor guy's screwed. But he was wearing his hat again, so I'm good spirits he'll walk out of that hospital when the time comes.
- I'm gonna find God.
That's one hell of a mission, Cas. Good luck with that. Also, your carving skills border on art. ♥
- You'd better put me into speed dial, kid.
Guest star wise, this episode rocked. Ellen, Jo, and Rufus. I could get used to seeing them more often. Especially Ellen. It's one of the well written believable female figures in this show.
Also, hunter against hunter equals great fight scenes. That Rufus-vs.-Dean fight on that porch was nicely acted, shot and cut. Kudos.
- Could we at least do this like professionals?
I do get that Dean's pissed and disappointed, I really do. But that fierce look full of condemnation he gave Sam after asking him whether he'd actually learned his lesson about killed me. It's so unlike Dean and made me wonder if that's still the disappointment talking or whether he meant to lash out. And maybe he's got the right to do so, (to hurt Sam in return) but I doubt it's going to get them anywhere. I miss the Dean that cared and put his brother first. And it's not just the looks and the cold shoulder, it's in everything he does, too.
Pre-apocalyptic Dean would have stormed off to find his brother the second he realized Sam was taken. But now he just suppresses his instinct to do so and stays to plot a counterstrike? It's not that he goes for the strategical option, because it obviously is the grown-up responsible thing to do (though when have they before when it came to their family?). No, it's the emotions all over his face when he's at that safe room door. Like he's weighing in his mind if Sam's still worth saving, and found him not to be a priority. And that thought right there makes me want to bawl.
- Maybe it's best we just go our separate ways.
Boys, you're breaking my heart. Your brother with a demon blood addiction tells you that he's scared of himself, admits to his problem; tells you he doesn't want to be a liability and put you and others in danger and you tell him right? Seriously? When what he actually asks you for is support and help in the face of the apocalypse and you let him walk away?
And Sam just walks away? Just like that? And would Dean really worry less when Sam's not around? What is wrong with them?
Looks to me like neither of them has learned his lesson. Last time I checked, going their separate ways led to the end of the world. What makes either of them think this time will be any different? They're both hard-headed idjits, that's what.
Bobby better walk again and kick both their asses. Cause this? This is doomed to end bad.
- Take care of yourself, Dean.
As much as I'd liked to hate them both for their pride and anger, I can't because they both have their right reasons. If only they'd stop hurting each other when what they intend to do is to protect. Oh boys.
Can't wait for next week.
