Crop And Save
Okay let me start with venting out my anger first so I can get over with it. WHY THE HELL are the boys that mean to Bobby? Man, I know they are worried about him and all and they can see what will eventually happen to him. But, excuse me this is just plain crap, God knows how much they (and we)have been sorely missing the guy and we are worried too. But please at least give the guy some credit, give him the benefit of doubt. He did save the day eventually, and he for sure believed in the boys when they were hitting their lowest.(Okay,Okay,Breath,Breath!)
I had high expectations watching this episode, Yet I'm left rather a bit disappointed after watching it a couple of times. I know lots of fans loved it, I don't hate it for sure. It had a fresh feeling to it and I could swear while watching it I thought myself viewing Ocean's 11 or something like that rather than my favourite TV show. I loved the directing and the split screens, I enjoyed seeing the boys get creative again and use another disguise rather than doing their usual FBI thing, I loved seeing Sam channel his inner Harry Potter fan boy with Charlie and I caught myself smiling open wide while watching Dean help Charlie flirt her way into the office while Sammy is giggling in the background. I just loved the script.
I'm not familiar with Felicia Day's work but she was a lovable guest star with a geeky attitude and an unusual personality. Dick Roman too was way too snarky with a superior intimidating attitude, However something in the way he spelled the words out annoyed me.
Yet something felt off for me, Something was missing, I don't know why I felt disappointed, Other than the Bobby issue, I didn't like seeing the boys pushed back into the supporting cast for the third episode in the row, The Levithans' master plan came no surprise to me, most fans figured it out after "Out with the old" and I wished the writers had something more surprising in mind.
Supernatural: Party On, Garth (2012)
You've been Garthed!
Well I might not be crazy about Garth, but as Dean said he sure grows on you. He is far more balanced than most hunters we have crossed paths with over the years, (He is sure as Hell more balanced than our very own Sam and Dean). He is awkward, silly, cute and he has a relationship with someone for crying out loud! Mr. Fizzles may have been a bit over the top but who didn't enjoy Dean's reaction to it (Priceless). Garth also had enough smarts to figure out the brewery's partner illegitimate son and he could put together clues about Bobby's spirit (Oh Bobby!) I would enjoy seeing him every now and then but no more Garth centric episodes especially this late in the season
"Party on,Garth" might not top my favourite episodes list but the ending took it from being mediocre to epic. Oh my God Bobbyyyyyyyyyyyyy! I could swear my heart literally stopped upon seeing that magnificent man gracing my Laptop screen again. Oh You won't believe how much I missed you Jim Beaver. You sly sly mean guy you fooled us all with all the talk about the Snowman movie, And I can't believe how much effort the crew of Supernatural have put to keep us from being spoiled. Now I hate you all but I guess I love you even more. Would you bring back the Impala please?!
Jensen Ackles once again delivered a brilliant performance conveying the many sides of Dean. Dean is frustrated, childish and desperate. His scene when he was pleading with Bobby's spirit to give him any sign, was massively heart breaking with Sam lurking in the back ground. I couldn't stop laughing on drunk Dean ("Me likey") and how childish he was spitting the liquor back in the glass upon getting caught.
Sam is trying to find his ground again after passing on the crazy to Cas. He is far more relaxed but guilty for what happened to the nerd Angel, he is once again re assuming his role as Dean's partner and co worker. I enjoyed his smug attitude when he matched Dean with drunk Garth. Sam is trying to find logic within the strange appearances that's been surrounding them especially after being disappointed so many times. He wished to spare Dean this disappointment upon using the talk board because he went a little nuts and couldn't trust himself back then so why drag Dean into this heartache!
Finally the MOTW was interesting, a nice call to Japanese scary creatures. If I have to complain about this episode, I would say I don't like it when the boys act as a supporting cast to a guest star. And I might not be an expert about getting drunk, (I have never tasted liquor in my life,for religious reasons) but every one seemed to get intoxicated very quickly. (But hey I can live with drunk Sam and Dean on every episode);)
Finding a new ten
Would you believe me if I say this was the one episode I was dying to see since Supernatural was back in September? I have been waiting to see how would Sam's other shoe drop! I have to say after watching this episode all week I'm still having conflicted feelings about it. I sure am excited, happy, disappointed, confused, frustrated but above all in love for my all time favorite TV show. I'm surprised but glad that Sam's downfall was a simple state of insomnia. But before I say anything further, Let me give praise to Jared Padalecki, hats off to you Jared, no words can give this guy enough credit for such a magnificent performance. After 5 days without sleep, Sam takes off seeking drugs (This is the guy who refused Dean's pills after his first glimpse behind the wall) it doesn't work and He is hit by a car and admitted to a hospital, where he is transferred to a locked psych ward, Moreover the doctors fail to put him to sleep no matter how much sedatives they give him (I'm a bit confused about why didn't he go under, some fans speculate this was because of the daemon blood, However on season 5 "Sam interrupted" he seemed normally affected by tranquillizers). Desperate but determined like a true Winchester, Dean promises his brother to find help but Sam is just resigned and willing to die simply because he is "too tired" (again when one of the Winchesters says this word, my heart is crushed into a million pieces, John said it, then Dean said it but it stung even more to hear it coming out of Sam's mouth since he was the one who wouldn't give up no matter what) So Dean (in a reminiscent act of season one's "Faith") goes to seek help from every hunter in Bobby's phone book.
Bits and pieces:
1- Again with the probability of ghost Bobby, Is he really still watching over the boys? I hope so.
2- I Love Mark Pelligrino and I think he makes a wonderful Lucifer, But I wished he would spare Sam for like 5 freaking minutes.
3- I'm not as excited to see Cas back (duck now, flying tomatoes) I used to love Cas on seasons 4 and 5 but he lost me on season 6 the moment he said Hello. Cas hurt Sam and for me even his act of sacrifice doesn't redeem him. (Crazy Fan girl moment here)
4- On a really shallow side note, But does every crazy person look as pretty as Sam? don't lose the scurf.
5-I loved Sam and Marin and though the ghost hunt was a little forced, (otherwise Sam would have nothing to do but sit with his hallucinations) They had a good chemistry and I'm glad Sam was still caring to save some one's life even in his time of pure adversity. Sam didn't think twice before offering to help another troubled soul. Besides I'm glad he found some kind of distraction away from Hallucifer.
6- Jensen was brilliant as always. He gave us a mature Dean, a determined one to save his little brother even if he had to work with the enemy even if he had to forgive his friend's betrayal. Dean did what he did best; He reached out with love to help both his brother and his old friend. The trench coat scene almost brought me to tears (But it was too rushed to appreciate the rush of emotions flowing from these two magnificent actors) However I find it hard to believe that Dean brought Cas's coat with him everywhere, Still Cas did the ultimate mistake in Dean's book by hurting Sam.
7- So Meg is back. Will she really be an ally to them? Or will she sell them out to Crowley if that could save her? Are those daemons really Crowley's hit men or are they on her team to convince Dean to make the full blown Angel trust her? Only time will tell.
8- It was a perfect montage when Cas regained his memory. Misha did a wonderful job portraying Cas's remorse and regret over his past mistakes.
9- I really freaked out when I saw a lock of Sam's hair falling, No please not the beautiful hair.
10- So Hallucifer wasn't enough for Sam? So daemon's decide to torture him by the electro shock. Stop Hurting Sam Winchester.
11- Lol at Lucifer reading "Three little pigs".
12- How did Cas shift Sam's problems? Don't try to figure it out, I hurt my head trying to come up with a convincing theory so now I'm resigned to wait and see. I can't deny that I was disappointed with the way they solved things and I fear that we are supposed to feel sorry for Cas now that he had to take on that weight but after doing some major rethinking, I think there was just no other way to get Sam back on his feet.
13- Did Sam find his 10? I mean what else on earth or in Hell does this guy have to go through? So please stop hurting the guy and give him something good even for one time. The writers enjoy hurting this poor guy yet he never complains and never gives up and that's exactly what I love about him.
Finally If I have to complain about anything, I would say it was too crowded, the end was rushed and I hoped for more brotherly moments instead of separating the boys for most of the time.
Supernatural: Out with the Old (2012)
I can't believe we survived another Hellatus. Supernatural is finally back with one heavy episode. I can't deny I had a hard time finding proper words to describe this one. I watched "Out with the Old" three times already, The first time I was too excited to have the show back that I couldn't process it properly, the second time to digest that whole bunch of events and the third time to be able to write a proper comment about it. However to be completely honest I still can't and I'm confused about giving it an 8 or a 9 out of 10, so as usual I go with 9, So yeah I like it.
In a shot out to one of my favourite season three episodes "Bad day at black Rock", The boys run across a case where an antique store sells cursed objects, Only to collide with some Levaithans that act as real estate agents buying everything in town. Meanwhile Sam comes clean to Dean about his Lucifer hallucinations and we get a glimpse of how dangerous Sam's situation would be.(OH Poor poor Sammy)
Bits and pieces:
1- I know the budget might be a little too tight for the show, But I wish they would ditch the blood spatter thing it is being used way too much lately and as cool as it may be, it is starting too lose the awesome factor.
2- Lol at Dean watching Black Swan TWICE, "the depth of your..."
3- SO SO sad to see Sam trying desperately to fight the Lucifer hallucinations and it is heartbreaking that he doesn't even bother to finish the joke. :(
4- Oh yes, we finally see snow in the show, it's been a long time and it was a brilliant scenery to see the boys in.
5- Dean getting kicked in the face twice by a little girl, do I even need words?! (Though I wonder, Why didn't Daddy officer follow the strange FBI guys into the ladies-room where his girl was?)
6- It was hilarious to see Dean lovingly eyeing the Ballet shoes (and I can't imagine the scenarios that ran through fans' heads wishing to see Dean in them), Also seeing Sam run around on the street carrying those shoes made me laugh my fool head off.
7- Is it me or did that Scott guy seem stoned?
8- If you think a Ballerina that dances her self to death is gruesome, wait till you watch the Tea pot. (Only in supernatural you can really turn the most harmless objects to weapons of mass destruction, Lol) I literally hide my head with both arms on the first watch in front of my Laptop and then looked around checking to see if my parents were watching me and wondering if I have gone insane. I kept gasping first thinking she would chop her fingers off with this knife, only to find it much much worse, Kudos for the special effects team on that scene, now thanks to you I'm scared for life.
9- Okay okay I'm a detail freak but didn't it seem strange that the woman and the boy didn't seem to panic much when a strange man barged into their home?
10- Nice tip Dean, But were you advising Scott or yourself? Anyway I'm so glad that Dean seems to be getting his grip on things and we haven't seen him drink in a while.
11- Thought the MOTW story was wrapped up too soon, Nice weaving the Levaithan story into it and I really enjoyed Joyce and George.
12- I don't know about you, but I kept screaming at the screen " Wake up Sam" OMG I'm very scared for that man. And yes Sam, Sleep deprivation is torture, You ask me.
13- "you see a Winchester, you don't eat him, You tell me and I eat him"
14- Lucifer singing "stairway to Heaven", We should've seen that.
15- Sam and Dean in a gallery café, That right there is scary, Ha.
16- Sam here was in no shape to go through that fight, Luckily for him and for us, George was too tired of his boss.
17- Cure cancer! Yeah right like we don't know better.
18- Frank might not be my favourite but I'll be sad to see him go. We have dealt with enough losses already and I for sure will miss his snarky conversations with Dean.
Jensen Ackles gave us a new side of Dean, He is worried about his brother, he keeps giving out concerned looks and keeps telling Sam to get some sleep and though I was initially angry that he can't see how serious the problem really is (or he might be hoping that Sam would find a way to cope with it again), I was glad that he didn't force his will on Sam and trusting him on the job. However I wished Dean would slip something in Sam's drink, The guy needs to sleep or he will die.
Jared Padalecki, What can I say! I grew to love this man over the years and I have been re-watching some of the old episodes lately, only to notice how far he has grown as an actor. Sam is honest with his brother about his hallucinations, he is too tired, incoherent, impatient, nervous, resigned and has no energy to sympathize with others. And though we couldn't see Lucifer, Jared made him present through facial expressions, blinks and his nervous posture and Kodus for the make up team, for Jared really looked sleep deprived.
Any way get ready for next Friday, keep your napkins close for I will. The sneak a peek clip is heartbreaking already and I wonder how will the rest be. And finally, Congratulations Jared and Gen for Padababy.
Supernatural: Repo Man (2012)
Wow Ben Edlund should write every episode on supernatural. The guy is a brilliantly evil genius who has rarely disappointed us so far. He again writes a new master piece for the decent going season 7. I'm falling in love with the show over and over again.
Mark Pellegrino, Man you make my day. I don't know if I'm evil by saying every time I see Lucifer on screen I widely smile cheek to cheek. I feel sorry about Sam, I sincerely do with all my heart and I can't wait for the extremely long unpleasant hiatus to know what happens next, But seeing Lucifer on screen gives me a surge of happiness that I rarely get on any show on TV. The man is magnificent, evil, manipulative, cunning and even acting as a petulant child sometimes. (I totally dig the forked tongue, Nice touch!)
There has been a lot of speculations about the flashbacks whether it was on season 3 or 4, don't try to figure it out every body couldn't put their fingers on the exact time, However I tend to the idea of it being towards the end of season three and I'm really glad to see the Metallicar back (even if it was a flashback for a brief moment) and the Samulet.
For the second episode in a row, We didn't see Dean drink, which in my book is a good thing but at the same time he seemed less and less interested in the job he was more keen to go after Dick (about whom he has no info what so ever) he didn't even try to get out of bed to listen to the police radio and more and more (to my extreme discontent) he seemed oblivious of Sam's true mental state, Or was Sam a good actor trying to hide the horror show going inside his head 24/7? No Dean, I'm really angry with you, You know better than that and I don't think he will handle it well when "the other shoe drops" and Sam goes completely insane.
Oh poor poor Sammy, What can I possibly say? My heart breaks for the guy, He can never win, No matter how hard he tries, He always looses. Sam has made some shady choices in the past with good intentions and it costed him a lot, He had to sacrifice himself and be damned for eternity of torture in Hell to redeem himself and save the world. But even when he was granted another chance he had to yet suffer again the 24/7 Lucifer hallucinations. Oh Sammy, Peeking inside your head this time made me feel a great awe for you. How strong can someone be to withhold that level of cruelty inside his head all the time, While trying to hide it and function properly on the job? Sam had yet again to sacrifice his sanity to save his big brother, Letting the Devil back in with no chance of turning back or blocking him again. How long will he hide that new state from Dean before he would crumble down? Oh March 9th, Why don't you come already? or is it March 16th? no please no.
The casting was brilliant, I missed daemon stories, exorcism spells, Devil traps and the black smoke. Russell Sams was perfect in his role switching smoothly from a daemon to an innocent man to a crazy psychopath. Nicole Oliver and Jeffrey Ballard were good choices too. The lights and the directing are yet another Supernatural masterpiece.
"If it bleeds, you can kill it" true.........but What if it is a creepy clown that bleeds glitter!!!!!
It is very extremely interesting that though the Winchester boys are practically two tough hunters who both had gone to Hell and back, still carry out ordinary childish phobias. Like Dean's fear of flying and germs, Sam is still scarred by a childhood experience that kept him terrified of clowns. OK lets admit it, Clowns are creepy, I have no fear for them but never liked them as well, with all their freakish color and creepy smiles, I can't see how does children find them amusing.
With Yet another brilliant stand alone episode, Supernatural invites us to explore a pure piece of art, Writers Andrew Dabb and Daniel Loflin cheer fans up with a brilliant story, giving us our own old Sam and Dean, reminding us why we used to love the show in the first place. Starting with the beautifully done colored title card, We accompany the boys on an ordinary MOTW hunt where they are just brothers teasing each other and enjoying their job once again, With no trace of the gloomy angst that has been clouding the air of season seven so far.
With no "dick on Dick" and no leads on the Amazonians, The brothers take a job in Kansas where people die by Octovamps, unicorns and shark attacks in ball pools. Sam is forced to go back to a place where he has to face his worst childhood fear.
It was extremely good to see Dean in a good mood and drinks nothing but coffee which we didn't see on the show since God knows when. He seemed to have learned his lesson from last week, hence putting new rules (no babies, no hot chicks, no booze, Which is kinda sad but hey this is Dean , he didn't hesitate to go check out the naughty hot nanny). Dean was so adorable with his geeky attitude over the giant slinky. I enjoyed Dean's interaction with Tyler and his heart felt laugh at the end, (We haven't seen Dean laugh like that since season five's "Free to be you and me") and it was good that even Sam seemed to enjoy making his brother laugh that hard. I was touched when Dean apologized to Sam for psychologically scarring his childhood (But Yeah Dean really which time?).
On Season Two it was well established that Sam has a crippling clown-o- phobia due to some unknown childhood trauma, and though we are provided some insight on why he had this kind of fear due to Dean ditching him in a lame place with puke smell, grainy ice cream and creepy clowns (It's nice that the show reminds us how Dean was practically Sam's primary caregiver), Yet judging on his reaction to Dean's question "What in the world did they do to you?", I still think there is more to Sam's clown story. Jared Padalecki delivered a great comic performance portraying Sam's fear of clowns (Who said that guy can't do comedy) and I absolutely liked his bad cop performance which was utterly ridiculous (and I find it great that we saw no traces of soulless Sam during this). However, I personally think this episode explored Sam's state of mind in a beautiful way, having him repeating Dean's words "if it bleeds you can kill it" like a mantra in his head, showing how much vulnerable the guy is and how much he is depending on his elder brother's support in his time of ordeal and I'm sacred to see what will happen when Lucifer makes his powerful appearance next week (We all know that won't be pretty for Sammy, yet I can't wait to see what happens).
Finally I enjoyed the old school brotherly scene beside the non-Impala with a glittery Sam and a Joyous Dean. I loved the motel room and I'm certainly adding it to my personal favorites. And did anyone notice the "no sideburns" on the employee rules board? That was smart:)
Supernatural: The Slice Girls (2012)
Way too dark
After last episode aired I was this happy fan that thought herself lucky to get some of her favourite moments. I ended up wishing Dean would listen to Ness's advice, But I know it's not sunshine and rainbows and I can't expect Dean to be that carefree happy person we knew long ago, Yet at least I didn't expect this level of regression. I'm still confused about "The slice girls" it might not be the best episode but not bad either and I will certainly watch it again. And though it is very dark (but for some enjoyable brotherly teasing) it opened so many threads for discussion among the fans in the last couple of days.
1- Is Bobby a ghost? I think the show is headed in that direction but I hope he is not. I love Bobby and I want him back so badly but this magnificent character got a perfect very well deserved farewell episode that I hope they won't ruin it by getting him back as a ghost.
2- Is Sam a hero or a bad guy for killing Emma? And did Emma deserve to die? Yes she did, from the moment that girl was born we all knew she won't last long and it was no surprise she died as she would for sure have killed her daddy if "Uncle Sam" didn't save the day. (And I say would have killed Dean because for me, Dean felt like the guilt burdened Dean from "Defending your life" who didn't lift a finger to save his life and even though he was holding a gun this time, I still doubt he would have shot her, anyway I will get to that point later). As for Sam he is neither a hero nor a bad guy, He was just doing his job and please give me a moment to explain. Sam is on the verge of insanity, He is clearly keeping his focus on work and worrying about Dean (his only stable rock) because like Dean he has lost everything and all he got now is his older brother who has in turn lost interest in everything and is crumbling down. So Sam needs to focus to weigh things on the scale of black and white, no time for shades of gray, He had to intervene quickly to save his brother referring his act to what Dean had told him about Amy a few months earlier. It was not an act of revenge for killing his friend but a pure act of loyalty towards his big brother, carrying out his burden for him, doing what seemed to be too difficult for Dean to carry out. Sam is hanging by a thread and all is keeping him together is Dean, he is angry because Dean is not caring about survival any more, So he goes as far as begging his older brother not to get killed and my heart breaks for the guy.
3- I always liked the Greek mythology and I was very glad they brought the Amazonians on the show, yet I was left disappointed for not giving us a chance to further explore this episode's MOTW, However I find it smart that the writers chose to kill them with plain guns which is not usual on the show. On the other hand I find the Amazonians very stupid to try to take out two hunters with no plan or back up and I think they might be back some time soon on the show again.
4- I have to mention that I really hated the camera close ups on the faces and the eyes and I found them totally distracting and pointless. As for Alexia Fast, she was OK in her role, she might not be the best guest star on the show but she was not bad. But I have to ask what does the girl have against Dean, it's the second time we see her holding a knife on the guy?
5- Finally I get back to Dean. Watching this episode, I caught my self recalling the first season's episode "Faith" when he asked Rev. Roy Le Grange why he chose to save him, Roy answered "I looked into your heart and you just stood out from all the rest........A young man with an important purpose. A job to do. And it isn't finished." and I wondered what would Roy see in Dean's heart if he looked at it right now? would he see that sense of purpose any more? Looking at Dean on earlier seasons, He was that care free reckless overprotective young man with the "I don't give a damn attitude", Dean then valued his family, his Impala, his necklace, his leather jacket, his cheese burger sandwiches and his one night stands. Season seven Dean has lost everything and except for Sam, he has nothing left. The last time we saw him enjoying a meal he ended up stoned and Bobby shot in the head and now even his one night stands ended up with a disaster. And I just want to scream at the show runners and ask them "Stop torturing the guy". Is Dean suicidal? I think he is, since Bobby died we haven't seen him shoot any thing and not even trying to protect his life any more. He may not jump from a bridge but he is more than OK with dying. And even his sense of revenge is not enough to keep him going, His only reason to keep doing the job is not wanting to bail out on Sam, and that too seems to be not enough for him.
All in all, Not a bad episode. I'm waiting on a lighter one next week with clowns unicorns and midgets.
Supernatural: Time After Time (2012)
That's a living proof that Supernatural writers are still somehow smart enough to amuse us
I remember a few days ago when I posted my last episode's comment, I mentioned how much I missed seeing the boys having fun on the job, missed the Rock/Scissor/Paper moments (And Yeah, Dean loses again but at least now with the Paper not his usual Scissors, The guy does learn his lesson after all) and I missed the brotherly teasing ("You gonna look at more anime or are you strictly into Dick now"). I also asked Dean to snap out of his angst because that's life and we are destined to lose people. So I dare to call myself lucky this week, because I got what I wished for and more.
Bobby's death is still aching and Dean is still obsessed with getting revenge on Dick Roman but at least the boys are learning how to deal with the loss while doing their job. With yet another time travel episode, Supernatural writers win the hearts of their fans again with a purely funny amazing episode. The writing is once again fantastic with the good old perfect one liners and brotherly moments. And I liked that even though the boys were separated for most of it, they were working together on the same page.
Nicholas Lea was cool as the one and only Eliot Ness, and his confusion to Dean's childish geeky behaviour was hilarious. Ness's advice to Dean was valuable and made more sense that Frank's "fake it" advice and I hope Dean takes it for once and appreciate his life a little more.
It's always nice to have Kim Rhodes on the show, She brings warmth to a rather tough Sheriff Jody Mills. I loved her motherly interaction with Sam, It's been a very long time since he had this kind of connection with someone especially if it's not a monster or a daemon and we all know how much he needs that touch in his life right now. I hope to see Sheriff Mills again working with the boys, cause I have the sense she is becoming Ellen 2.0 and I like that.
The 1944 era was done neatly and I liked the directing going back and forth between the present and the past. The use of light through the episode was brilliant too. Finally I have to refer how amazing Jensen Ackles looks in every outfit he puts on and though I never mentioned this before, Sam's sideburns are becoming very annoying and his hair is getting too damned long.
Not what I expected
OK so Frank might be a funny obsessed paranoid conspiracy freak, But Supernatural, if you think he can ever replace Bobby, you are definitely out of your mind. Frank might be a breath of fresh air on the show, he is an interesting character that might be of good help to the Winchesters, but he has no real connection to them like the man who has been there for them all their lives and with us for the past six seasons. I know I'm still hanging by a thread here but I'm still waiting for a supernatural way to bring Bobby back (At least we haven't seen the guy's answer to the reaper, he might have stick around as a ghost or something, and I'll get back to that later on)
The montage of the brothers' reaction to losing Bobby was brilliant, I was kinda dreading seeing them dealing with the situation and I was afraid they might handle it the way they handled loosing John before. Anyway like always "Be careful what you wish for" because those two magnificent guys broke our hearts just by sitting there, avoiding eye contact with each other, unable to lean on one another during their ordeal and each lost in his own world. The sight of Sam just sitting there staring in the blank space and pressing on his scar made my heart ache, while his elder brother is lost in his grief.
The monster of the week theme is not so bad but what made it even better were two things: 1- It is nice to see Sam still willing to sacrifice himself to save innocents, the way he taunted the Vitalea to prevent her from feeding on Lee made me grateful that at least one of the boys still has his head in the game. 2- Madison McLaughlin was getting on my nerves, she was way over the top and I'm glad Krissy quit the job, but what saved the day was the nice chemistry Jensen Ackles had with her. However I didn't really accept the fact that Dean just froze there, unable to help especially when both his brother and some innocent people's lives were in grave danger.
The last scene with Dean trying to put Frank's advice in action was gut wrenching and Jensen gave one of his best performances doing that awesome silent scene. (However as much as I appreciate having him back in the game as much as I dread Frank's advice because it will make Dean suppress his emotions even more and we all know when he crushes under that weight, it won't be pretty)
Back to the ghost thing, there are three theories now going among fans about who drank Dean's beer? 1- It might have been Bobby's spirit trying to make some contact. 2- Dean's alcohol problem is hitting the top now that he can't remember drinking his own beer and this incident might help him realize who much he might be losing control. I go with both possibilities and I'm just willing to wait and see how this unfolds. 3- It might have been Cas, but it is most unlikely in my opinion.
Overall the episode was not bad but not what I expected after the wonderful "Death's door", but I don't know why after seeing it I found myself longing for old season one and two's episodes when the brothers were just different. I just miss the days when there were no tension between them, I miss seeing Dean having fun on the job, I miss seeing them teasing each other, I miss the classic "Shut up" and "Bitch/Jerk" moments, I miss their pranks on each other, I miss the rock/paper/scissors thing, I miss the Impala, I miss Dean's perfect one liners and seeing him hitting on girls, I miss Sam's bitchfaces, I miss the times when their sole purpose was "saving people, hunting things", I miss the times when they really cared about helping each other not just keep one another alive and I most certainly miss when Dean's most important job was to watch out on his little Sammy. I know they are far different now than those 26 and 22 year old boys who hit the road a few years ago looking for their father and fighting monsters from urban legends but sometimes I just wish I could shake Dean and tell him "I know how hard it is to lose everybody, I know you are entitled to grief and as much as I know it hurts but as the girl said people die Dean, so please just snap out of it and pay closer attention to Sam because he needs you right now more than ever and because no matter how many times he insists he is OK you know he is not and he too has lost everything and all is left for him in the world is you, so please be there for him cause that's why we fell in love with you in the first place"
Supernatural: Death's Door (2011)
The saddest episode ever
Watching this episode for the first time, I caught myself sitting on the edge of my seat, crossing my fingers while repeating the same mantra over and over "Please don't kill off Bobby, Please don't kill off Bobby" and reaching for my Kleenex. After watching it again tonight I found myself doing pretty much the same.
On one of the saddest episodes on Supernatural, If not the saddest ever, We say goodbye (Or at least I'm still hopping we don't) to one of the most beloved characters, Bobby Singer. Picking right at the last episode with realising he was shot in the head, Freaked out Sam and Dean rush to the emergency room trying to save him. However instead of staying in the real world watching the boys react to their surrogate father's grave injury, Supernatural decides to do things differently giving us a Bobby centric episode, peaking inside the guy's head and enjoying what might be this great man's last and most outstanding performance. Jim Beaver you were such an asset to the show and your absence will be painfully felt. Bobby goes in to a coma and realizes there is a reaper after him, so he has to team up with his life long partner to find the door to the real world to get a message to Sam and Dean. (Having Steven Williams back even for one episode was such a nice touch, I really didn't like loosing that guy in the first place) Bobby has to relive some of his worst and best memories in order to find the saddest memory ever to open the door. As a child Bobby had to deal with an alcoholic and abusive father that kept telling him "You break everything you touch", a line that haunted him down all his life along with his mother's "God will punish you", that he grew up afraid of becoming another version of his father, he refused to have kids of his own, he even had to break his wife's heart by refusing to have kids three days before she got possessed adding to his guilt for her as they never got past this night. But as fate has it, He met John who put the boys in his custody for most of their lives, so he became their real father when John was obsessed over finding his wife's killer that John forgot that the boys were kids and needed a father more than a trainer. Bobby raised the boys and was proud of what they turned into. It was so good to view this relationship from Bobby's perspective and know that his happy memories is with the boys.
Talk about Dean and Sam, The brothers are devastated over the idea of losing Bobby, each in his own way. Dean as always is in denial, refusing to accept his father's death, pointing out that they already have lost enough and lashing out his anger on the Levaithan boss as he shows up with the creepy smile on his face. Will Bobby's death get Dean back into the game? Will he deal with Bobby's death with his tail spinning as he did when John died?
While Sam trying like forever to deal with his pain and face up to the ordeal, He is clearly terrified. But will Bobby's death be the crack in his armour? Judging by the way he pressed his scar, I say Yes. I'm not sure, Was Lucifer taunting him in his head or Was he hoping that this around him wasn't real? I go for both and my heart breaks for the younger Winchester brother as he has to struggle through this alone.
This magnificent episode ends on yet another torturing cliffhanger that has been killing me all through this impossibly long winter hiatus, and with only a few hours left for the next one to air, I'm dying to know Will Bobby choose to go with the Reaper? Will the boys really be OK without him? I just have to wait and see.
