Supernatural 5x17  
Demon butt kicking and loads of angst. Just the way I like my show.

  • It's funnier in Enochian
    Castiel scored some of the most hilarious lines here ever and it's working amazingly well when it comes to the character dynamics. Sam and Dean can be all serious business while Cas undeliberatly makes for the comic relief. My personal favorite has got to be the voice mail welcome which in itself is really funny but followed by those beeps that indicate it took Cas quite a while to press the right button makes for pure hilarity. Oh Cas, never change, 'kay?

  • I can't count on anyone else. And I can't do it alone.
    Sam. My heart's breaking for him. He tries so hard to make up for his mistakes and keep the both of them going while Dean's hope is dwindling and yet it just keep blowing up in his face.

    Still, the role reversal works well here. It's good to see Sam matured. He's learned from his mistakes even admits to having been wrong walking away from all of this (and walking away from Dean 'cause we all know that's the elephant in the room right now). He generally works hard on making them a team again and I really hope they will be again, eventually.

    In a way, Sam was where Dean is right now. They both do what they believe is the right thing to do. What the demon blood was for Sam, Michael is for Dean. A means to end the war and stop the apocalypse. And so the tragic hero goes down...

    But making another deal, Dean? Because it went so well all the other times that posed the alternative? We all know conditions on those kind of deals usually suck. Let's hope this one won't make it all worse.

    Also leaving Sam without even a goodbye with the intention to go offer himself to Michael? However true to the Winchester way, that's just heartbreaking cruel. Don't they see that moments like these are the perfect opportunity for a hug or a fist fight? Someone should point that out to the writers.

    The Dean/Lisa part at the end felt a bit too much or rather random. Granted, it was hinted at how much she means to Dean in 3x02 and then briefly in 3x10 but just not enough for me to ascribe it that kind of importance.

  • The whore can only be killed by a true servant of Heaven.
    As far as we know Dean hadn't said yes to anything yet, so why did it work? Confusion.

  • And on a shallow note. That green-blueish shirt Jared is wearing towards the end of the episode? I like. It makes his hazel eyes change color like a chameleon. Oh, and what's up with Jared's sideburns? They're expanding exponentially. Haha.
.

Also, subtle hints with the 99, yes? Can't wait for the 100th episode next week.

I think Dean killing the whore worked because he'd internally decided to say yes to Michael by that time.

I'm loving Castiel. ♥

That does sound like a very reasonable explanation. And also makes me afraid for Dean. The guy means it. I was kind of in denial haha. Someone stop him from saying that three letter word, please.

I was shocked when Dean drove away. It took me so off guard I didn't realize what he was up to until he told Lisa he would make a deal to keep her and Ben safe. Lisa is one of my favorite Dean women, especially since she's the mother of mini-Dean Ben.

CASTIEL IS SO HILARIOUSLY AWESOME! At the same time, drunk, dejected Cas makes me incredibly sad. I don't want him to become hippie!Cas from The End.

And it's Enochian. See the pretty letters. [wink]

Yes, Dean's always been more of the spontaneous type. Or he just keeps those thinky thoughts to himself and you just don't get much of a warning before he up and does something. Still, I hope somebody (Cas, Sam, Bobby I don't care) stops him this time.

Haha, no. I'd rather not have stoned hippie!Cas either. Not to those epic proportions as seen in The End at least. He'll sober up some. *nods*

And it's Enochian
Thanks for that. It did look weird spelled with a q but I was too lazy to look it up ;P

*tries to find all pieces of her shattered heart* Oh, Kripke, how I love HATE you!!!

Oh, and what's up with Jared's sideburns? They're expanding exponentially. Haha.
Ha! And there I thought I missed something. Seriously, what's up with that? They distracted me for a moment....

Also, drunk!Castiel might be the best thing I've ever seen so far - okay, maybe apart from shirtless Dean...

...

Makes me wonder if we'll ever get to see a shirtless Castiel. *wants*

EDIT:
Ich möchte nur mal anmerken, falls mein Comment keinen Sinn ergibt, dass ich heute einen sehr langen Tag hatte und seit - äh, gut 20 Stunden auf den Beinen bin. Und jetzt ins Bett torkeln werde. Jawohl.

Wenn ich's bis dahin schaffe, und nicht schon auf dem stillen Örtchen einschlafe....

*offers used suture kit*

I know, right? Those sideburns grow more and more.

Shirtless Castiel indeed sounds tempting. Misha keeps saying his body would outshine Jared and Jensen's slightly toned ones, so that's why they keep him wrapped in clothes. ^-^

Und hey, macht nix. Klingt alles recht einleuchtend und LJ liest sich in dem Zustand eh immer am besten :)

OH! that's just bloody brilliant hun! SO freaking RIGHT!

Oh thanks. Just thinky thoughts. ;P

Sorry, I just have problems with expressing myself. Especially in English. And when it comes to SPN... yeah, so I just thought that that's the simplest and the best summary of the latest episodes. That's what I was trying to communicate ♥

The fact that Castiel's scenes are seemingly so funny makes them all the more heartbreaking in my eyes. He's no less broken than the boys right now.
ヴェレーナ: Castiel aloneongiara on April 11th, 2010 09:22 pm (UTC)
Very true. I wonder how they'll give him some peace of mind. I mean he can't be on a bender for the rest of the season, right? *group hug*

I sekrety hope Dean is going to say yes to Lucifer.

Now that would make for an interesting story. You should pitch that to the writers *nods*
