Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 7.10
(And the DDoS attack did not disable the batch uploader. WOOHOO! \o/)

Contains profanity, capslock, meta and speculation.

Spoiler and Theory Summary

No spoilers! \o/

However, theories:

-Lucifer or Sam's fractured self or whatever is going to give Sam an awful time, because Sam's going to be very destabilized and upset, and whether it comes from himself or a secondary force, that's prime self-destructive hallucination time.

-Dean might go insane. Absolutely, literally insane. I'm thinking some kind of crazy "summon Death and yell at him to leave Bobby alone" insane. Or "Do some kind of soul entrapment thing and bind Bobby's ghost to something he'll be packing around with him everywhere" insane. We got a glimpse of Dean with Bobby gone earlier this season when the scrapyard got torched. Whatever Dean does at this juncture as a result of whatever condition Bobby ends up in, rationality is not likely to enter into it.

-Death may very likely show up and have words with someone. If not Dean, then... someone else.

-What the Leviathans are up to? Something. Something more.


...What's that? I didn't mention any theories relating to whether Bobby's okay or not?



How's that for a theory? :-)

In all honesty though, Bobby's been giving me 'doomed to die' vibes since Season 2 because he's in the Obi-Wan position. Obi-Wan dies. Buuut at the same time Obi-Wan kind of haunts Luke a bit and keeps showing up now and then. Not like stuff like that ever happens on this show.

Of course I hope Bobby lives. But, even if he doesn't, there's nothing to say he'll stay dead (he's an honorary Winchester now, that comes with a key to Death's revolving door) and whether by haunting, flashback or Leviathan, or what the heck, going up to Heaven and rousing the Heavenly Roadhouse with news of the crap the Leviathans are trying to pull back on Earth and petitioning Joshua for angel-hood for the lot of them (there are a lot of open positions for angels after the whole apocalypse thing and LeviaGodCas rampage killed off loads of them after all) so they can get back to Earth and smite some Leviathan butt or something, there is a good chance that we won't have seen the last of Bobby's furry mug on this show.

If he dies that is.

He's totally gonna live though. Right?

...Right?





Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 7.10 - ??? "Death's Door."

[AFTER-WATCH RETROACTIVE NOTE: Quite a lot of my reactions to this episode were very personal for several reasons, many too personal to post online. As a result, this post will be shorter, sketchier and more subdued than usual.]


It's been a long time since I've been this nervous to hit play on an episode. Admittedly the three or four wrong episodes I hit play on first have eased the nerves a little. My sources are... confused sometimes.


-Skipping the THEN. Taking a breath. Debating alcohol.

-Damn that's a daunting 'NOW' screen.

-Bullet path. Right down in there. Owwwwwww. That's gonna... need a real big bunch of WB ointment. Yeah. *swallows* DDD-:

-Okay, I'm sure me and every other person who wrote a 'Sam does first aid in the back of the van' tag for 7.09 are feeling mildly psychic right now. Not that it was hard to predict. Damn the lighting in the van though.

-Shortest pre-title sequence ever I think. Under a minute.

-Title. "Death's Door." Oh fantastic.

-Oh hey, flashback to last episode. Three boys in the woods. *wibbles*

-Blocking the guest stars, still expecting Julian Richings though, even before I saw his character was in the title.

-No I haven't managed to make any caps yet because it was dark and then a segment from last week mostly and I'M DISTRESSED, OKAY??

-I can't even transcribe the noises I'm making. I'm quite severely attached to Bobby for many reasons. I don't know if this reaction post is going to be all that fun and funny this time guys, I'm sorry.

-Dean, even Bobby's-near-death-experience Dean, does an adorable 'confused'.
Photo 3
Photo 4


-"Numbers." Okay, yes. Leviathan plot. Thinking. 454895. Too short for a phone number or Social Security number (I think?). Divisible by 5. A YouTube user with one video uploaded, something about hot teachers for Valentine's day, (giving that a wide berth. O.o) Six numbers, could be two groups of 3 numbers, for coordinates. Hmm. *tinkers* 45.4, -89.5 gives a result of Turtle Lake Road in Gleeson Wisconsin, which is in the same state as one of those conspicuous marks were on the Leviathan map, but further north. Hmmm...
Photo 5


-Oh ow. On top of ow. Bobby's wife. Ow.
Photo 6


-Written by Sera Gamble. Ohhhhhhh crap. We are so hosed you guys. D-:

-Directed by Robert Singer. Well there, he can't kill off Bobby, Bobby's named after him. *clings to hope*

-Moon going out, never a good sign.
Photo 7


-Aaaaand the rest of the world going out too, and chasing someone towards the house. Is Bobby's near-(please just near)-death experience in Fantasia? Is the Nothing coming for him? He does have a lot of books, maybe the Never-Ending Story is in there somewhere. *ponders*
Photo 8


-It's wee-somebody. If it's wee-somebody we know, then the memory can't be contemporary with the previous one because Bobby wasn't a hunter before his wife died. Unless he's seeing wee-himself, but he's been first person POV so far, so that'd be a little odd.
Photo 9


-OH MY GOD HI RUFUS!!!! \o/
Photo 10


-And Rufus has a fascinatingly dangly and hard to cap earring. Hunh. He's revealing hidden depths now that he's dead.

-"All right baby boy, here we go." BABY BOY!!!! I don't know whether to laugh or go Awwww. *flails regardless*

-I will go 'Ooooo' at the pretty location and shot framing, though.
Photo 11


-Ahh. Same kid, running blurrily. ...You know, he looks a bit like Dean did in that photo of him, Sam and John from the Pilot. Hmmm.

-SUDDEN UNANTICIPATED CHILDREN ARE SCARY! O.O
Photo 12


-"God's gonna punish you." Well. Thanks for that then, you little ray of sunshine. ...Dark hair... He wouldn't be.... Naw....?

-Significant and incongruous dropped glass of milk. Hmmmmm..... *ponders*
Photo 13


-Earthquake or inbound archangel, and the people in his memories are reacting to the earthquake-like thing.... so... Hmm. *still pondering*

-And now the background people are disappearing. I DON'T KNOW WHAT ALL THIS MEANS, BUT I LOVE TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT.
Photo 14


-AND I LOVE THE EFFECTS/LIGHTING DEPARTMENT FOR ACCOMPLISHING A MAJOR DOSE OF CREEPY JUST BY TURNING OFF THE LIGHTS!
Photo 15


-"Hello, Mr. Singer. Your time's up." Not Death, but maybe a Reaper? Or... Hm. Hang on... Tie Report! MUTANT PAISLEY. Or a variant thereof. If this guy turns out to in some bizarre way be a Leviathan, I WILL BE VERY FREAKING SMUG.
Photo 16


-Come to think of it, Leviathan Dick bought that pair of guns specifically. He didn't alter the bullets from purchased, but what if it's another kind of 'Special' gun? That does Leviathan *handwave* things. I DON'T KNOW, I'm improvising theories as fast as I can.

-"You're in a coma, genius, this is what happens. I climb in your custard and I fish you out." Dean's coma was a lot more in the 'now' than Bobby's. More ghost and less memory. Hm. Also, 'custard' and 'fish' in close proximity? Combined with the late lamented Amy Pond, someone on the writing staff is totally a hardcore Eleventh Doctor fan.

-"I don't even know you right now!" Oh, god, Chuck Norris movie marathon with the boys. In Bobby's un-burned-down house. Oh. *flails*
Photo 17


-"It's like you want him to get mad." Oh wow. Bobby's mom. And a not-too-happy account of his home life growing up. Setting that aside, the set people really did a job on the kitchen. Just look at that stand-mixer on the left side by the wall!
Photo 18


-And close the doors and we're back with Rufus. Love the quick memory changes, and the interweaving. Whatever the outcome, we're getting a lot of Bobby backstory tonight.

-Oh boys.
Photo 19
Photo 20
Photo 21
Photo 22


-And there's the kid again. Maybe it's not wee anyone else, maybe it really is wee!Bobby?
Photo 23


-"I'm not dyin' on no plaid carpet, no thank you." Rufus. *grin, headshake*

-"Deep like crap you do not want to think about." Shades of Flatliners? At least the 'dying and confronting the past' part of it?

-"I'll be a prima ballerina." Rufus is awesome. Glad we get to see him again.
Photo 24


-"You knew I wanted kids.... what does that even mean, 'you break everything you touch'?" ...and putting that together with the memory of his mom and the comment about his dad, yeah. Bobby does have a metric ton of worse in his head.

-"We never got to get past this." Jim Beaver is awesome. And also ow. Because I am pretty certain most of us have an idea of what he's drawing on for scenes like this. Oh Jim.
Photo 25
Photo 26


-Oh, hey, seeing himself rather than being himself. That's new.
Photo 27


-"You're too hard on yourself. You're more of a cranky drunk." I believe I have said before, that I would happily watch the Bobby and Rufus show too, and if I haven't I'm saying it now.
Photo 28


-That Reaper is conspicuously absent at the moment, isn't he.

-Okay, the kid is wee!Bobby. And this is going to get a hell of a lot more painful.
Photo 29


-And there's the shattered milk glass. Yeah. Bobby's on the right track now.
Photo 30


-Yeah. Ow.
Photo 31


-"We're gonna stop the damn Reaper." Oh dear. That never goes well.

-Oh boys.
Photo 32


-"Did your uncle ever make his wishes known in regards to organ donation?" Dude. World's. Worst. Timing. I realize you mean well, but you're going to be lucky not to get punched here. Also, your tie is a muddled camouflagey-greeny-browny diamonds thing. You're hiding, or hiding something. Wonder if the Leviathans have taken over the organ donor program? To them it'd practically be Meals on Wheels. *ponder*
Photo 33


-"He's not gonna die." *crosses fingers* It's the intense-Dean-cam, so that has to count for something, right? Even though it also has the effect of making the background look a little surreal and have a 'denying reality' kind of feel to it, and I love the photography department on this show but it can stop pre-emptively stomping on my heart any time now. O.O
Photo 34


-"Of course they're doing everything they can-" Ooo. You are so lucky that wasn't your face, organ donor guy.
Photo 35


-"Code grey to hallway north" on the speakers in the background. Lovely little detail of security being called, quite sensibly. As painful as it is, I love the detail and realism in this episode. It's making things that much harder to take, which means it's working.

-Yeaaaah, Leviathans. Remember that whole thing where you went and sprayed them all with Borax, rescued Bobby (mostly) and then got all distracted by the whole pain and trauma and worry and things? The Leviathans aren't really that distracted, and they can still hunt you down and eat you. So. Screwed.
Photo 36


-Oooo, the boss himself came. And sat in the parking lot really visibly. Where hospital security can see the guy who just punched a hall display thing and threatened a hospital official threatening one of the top 35 wealthiest men in the US. What's that you say? It's a trap? And a distraction (for the other Leviathans who are infiltrating the hospital and getting whatever they came to do accomplished without resistance since Dean isn't even warning Sam they're there, he's just pounding on the side of a limo like a rage-monkey, looking to beat the black slime out of someone)? Naaaaaaaah. Can't be. (I repeat. So. Screwed. *facepalm*)
Photo 37
Photo 38


-Oho, and I see in the cap above sneaky Dick has switched to a striped tie to throw off suspicion. NOT GONNA WORK, DICK. I CAN STILL SEE YOUR INNER MUTANT PAISLEY!

-...I may be slightly deranged. I apologize.

-"You're either laughing because you're scared, or you're laughing because you're stupid." No, he's probably laughing because hospital security is likely going to trank you in a minute and neutralize you as a defense point for whatever the Leviathans are planning in the hospital without having to reallocate any of his existing people to the task. Silly Dean. *ruffles his hair*
Photo 39


-Or not. Damn, security at this hospital is slacking!

-Book title: "The Origin of Evil." Somehow I don't think that's the one by Ellery Queen. Might be this one though, if "An Essay on" was left off the spine title.
Photo 40


-Also "Incubus," (we can all guess what that one's about) and the "[something that isn't Malleus and starts with an 'L', maybe Lexicon] Maleficarum" Can't make out the blue book title.
Photo 41


-Heh. Of course the book pages are blank. The only research you have access to is what you yourself remember, and you've had far more pressing things to do than memorize the King James Bible.

-"Only their Boss can do that and we don't want him involved." Aw, pweeeeeeease? *sparkly eyes* You can snark at each other and challenge him to a game of something for your life. Five card stud, maybe.

-Hellooo, magic item. Is that even gonna work, since this is all in Bobby's comatose head... hang the hell on. OMG IS THAT THE REAPER BINDING THING FROM 'FAITH'??? I AM PREPARING TO SHRIEK VERY LOUDLY IF IT IS!
Photo 42


-...Nah. Didn't look like it. The one in Faith was smaller and had a round bit at the head, and was, you know, broken in the episode. But HI CONTINUITY! anyway. Just because.

-And security hasn't even come by and 'discussed' things with Dean yet? Very lax.
Photo 43


-"Dick Roman was out there." *facepalm* You stopped and got a freaking coffee before passing intel on a potential inbound enemy to Sam?! I mean, coffee is a necessity and all, but dear god! Well, I'm going to handwave that as "Dean's too distressed to think straight right now." *handwaves*

-"Because it's real." Oh Sam. Sam with your head full of hallucinations and pain being how you tell what's real. Oh Sam.
Photo 44


-"You wanna hug and say 'we made it through it when Dad died'? We've been through enough." Yep. Dean's not going to take this well at all. Cleopatra Winchester, King of Denial. It's really not looking good for Bobby to remain breathing after this episode.
Photo 45
Photo 46


-Oh no you didn't. *winds back, listens* Yep. Of course they did. Modified Dean's family theme running on the soundtrack under that discussion there.

-And also yep. Because whether it's Lucifer, something from the monster blood, or just Sam's own fractured brain, there's no way it's going to cut him any slack with all this going on. (Also, that fic I wrote can still fit in just fine between the pre-credits sequence and Bobby's arrival at the hospital, so yay!)
Photo 47
Photo 48
Photo 49


-Aaaand Bobby's opened a door, so now he's somewhen else again, right? Possibly without Rufus, since who knows if the memory of him is going to retain cohesion and autonomy while Bobby's in a different era. Rufus is dead though, so maybe it's different for him, maybe he can get pulled into Bobby's head a little and exhibit some autonomy? Still. *facepalm*
Photo 50


-Or not. Bobby just opened the door, he didn't go through it, so he's in the same place? *ponders*

-"Yeah, I know, I ain't their Dad." Ow. In a few different directions.
Photo 51
Photo 52


-Ahhh... is it the Nothing making things disappear? I think now maybe it is. And that maybe it's representative of the condition of Bobby's brain. And that I really don't want to think about that right now. Dean's not the only Queen of denial in these parts.
Photo 53


-"First time anyone's actually pulled one on me while unconscious." Dude. It's Bobby. No shame in that.

-Hee! Sorry. Moment of dueling face-fuzz going on here. XD
Photo 54
Photo 55


-*nods about the explanation of the darkness* Yeah, that. Oh Bobby.

-"Come with me. Be done." Oh wow. 'Carry on my wayward son,/there'll be peace when you are done.' DAMMIT, SHOW. You just had to sneak that in there too.

-"I don't care."/"Why?"/"Because they're my boys." Technically not, but the unofficial Winchester mutual badass adoption process does go both ways. That said, OH BOBBEEEEEEE.

-"Because he's a bad kid, that's why."/"Well that's a load of crap." Oh I think this next bit might be excruciatingly painful and just a little cathartic.

-"Well, as fate would have it, I adopted two boys and they grew up great. They grew up heroes. So you can go to Hell!" Yeah. He didn't raise them, they were John's boys, but they mutually adopted each other over time, particularly after John's death. Bobby certainly did not break them, though most of the rest of the universe sure as Hell tried and occasionally succeeded, if only temporarily. I can see that Bobby saying this might be seen as dismissive of John, but I'm a John fan, and I don't consider this to be Bobby taking credit for raising them, I see it as Bobby taking credit for not damaging them, for being given charge of two kids while their dad was elsewhere doing dangerous things and not treating them like his father did him and his mom. This whole thing really explains a lot about his attitude towards John, if Bobby saw even a hint of anything that reminded him of his father. This may explain the infamous shotgun incident, if John being John bumped up against Bobby's personal history at a bad time. Also..."As Fate would have it"? Very interesting turn of phrase there. I'm not too sure Fate wouldn't have wanted them broken, given everything that's happened.

-"We're taking him out for surgery." *crossing every appendage I have* but there is far too much time left on the counter for comfort. :-/

-OH HI. Yeah, I was wondering if he might've. O.O
Photo 56


-Hunh. Shot his dad in the same spot he got shot. Interesting.

-"God is gonna punish you." And there it is, the line from before. From his mom. OW.

-HOLY CRAP IT'S THE SPIKY CLOCK!!!! LOOK! *points in the blurry background* IT'S STILL AROUND!!! \o/
Photo 57


-"Now go get a shovel and bury the old man out behind the woodshed." And that explains the running in from the woodshed before. And so begins a long lifetime of burying dead monsters. Sorry. Moving on.

-"You've got the only genetic case of 'bullet in the brain' I've ever seen." Ha! Yep, Same spot. And the Reaper is loose. That's the trouble with places going dark when you're not in them, the Reaper binding sigil can't still be painted on the floor that's not there.

-On the up side, no sign of Leviathan interference. Not that that means they aren't there.

-"Bobby, um, hey. Just... thanks. For everything." *swallows hard* Yeah, I, uh, think I'll be... yeah.
Photo 58
Photo 59


-Hand and arm movement. Okay, I knew it was probably coming, I still gasped.
Photo 60


-Oh crap, he's missing the last number!
Photo 61


-Now's the part where it really hurts, isn't it.

-Yeah.
Photo 62
Photo 63


-"...Idjits." ...okay. I'll admit, that got a brief but painful laugh. But it's just a last flash of hope just so show can stomp it all to tiny bits, right?
Photo 64
Photo 65
Photo 66


-Right.
Photo 67
Photo 68
Photo 69
Photo 70
Photo 71
Photo 72
Photo 73
Photo 74


-And back to the memory. One last time in one last memory.
Photo 75

-"Glad I saved the best for last." And if you'll all excuse me, I'm just going to break right down for a while. Here's some caps, talk amongst yourselves.
Photo 76
Photo 77
Photo 78
Photo 79
Photo 80


-"Well Bobby, stay or go, what's it gonna be?" *looks at counter* Aw crap, they're gonna cliff-hang us on whether Bobby goes on and goes to Heaven or stays behind as a ghost so there's a chance he can help the boys.
Photo 81
Photo 82


-Yeah. They did. Bastards.


Either way, there'll be some way to bring Bobby back. So he's not really gone. If it's as a ghost and the boys have to eventually... deal with him the way they usually deal with ghosts, that's really going to hurt. ...Sooo yeah, that's most likely what'll happen. But he'd be there if Sam gets out the talking board again and starts asking questions, and maybe he could do the vengeful spirit thing on any Leviathans that get within firing range of them.

Or maybe a certain someone will crawl his lazy ass out of that reservoir and poof him healed again. Because stranger things have certainly happened on this show. I don't know. But if it isn't an instant miraculous recovery, I'm thinking we won't find out for several episodes yet that Bobby decided to stay. I mean if Bobby decided to stay.

Like I said above in the spoiler/theory section, I always had a feeling Bobby would die (in a more permanent way than he has before). This episode was really hard for me to watch for a couple personal reasons, but it was a damn good episode still. However, it's going to be a very long time before I can work myself up to re-watch it. (As a note for those who know me well, I am likely going to go straight after posting this and watch the two-part Doctor Who episode "The End of Time" (which it took me what, over a year to work up to re-watching?) to cheer up. Yeah.)


Aaaaand the show is on hiatus until January! See you then.

Aw man, this made get all teary all over again.

Hm. Also, 'custard' and 'fish' in close proximity? Combined with the late lamented Amy Pond, someone on the writing staff is totally a hardcore Eleventh Doctor fan.

Yes, I thought that too!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 5th, 2011 04:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
*hands you the kleenex*

Seriously, who puts custard and fish that close together without being an Eleven fan? XD

I also wondered if Bobby had taken it upon himself to deal with his revolting ass of a father. So err, I shant be watching again myself any time soon. I watched Boris Karloff to cheer up. It rather failed to work. I was also compelled to tell Jim on twitter what a genius he is. This ep also beat out NBC in the timeslot according to Jim as well. Damn straight it would. I was incoherent trying to explain this ep to everyone last night. Curse you show and your writing and brilliant actors.

HUGS
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 5th, 2011 04:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
They beat out NBC, that's awesome!

Yeah, this wasn't a comfortable episode to watch on a few levels, and the brilliance of Jim made it that much harder.

(I've started a comment-fic meme over at singer_salvage if you want to try writing Bobby fic?)
borgmama1of5 From: borgmama1of5 Date: December 5th, 2011 02:46 am (UTC) (Link)
Just...yeah.

January 6 is a long way away...

Hopefully the CW doesn't bump it further away like they have in previous years, IIRC.

(((HUGS))) *sniffle* I thought I had braced myself, had seen the writing on the wall since 7.02, but I still am feeling more upset about Bobby's death than I thought I would. I loved him as a character, sometimes I was annoyed by how he was used as a character, but this episode... it reminded me of all the best Bobby brought to the plate and why he's such a meaningful part of SPN's tapestry. As a good-bye, it doesn't get more loving, to not only say goodbye on a high note for a character, but to also develop him with additional layers in the same process... and the Show pulled it off. HUGS!!!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 5th, 2011 04:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
Like I mentioned, Since season 2 I was pretty sure Bobby wouldn't be making it to the series finale in one piece, but it still is a hell of a hard thing to watch. Jim Beaver is a brilliant actor.
ficwriter1966 From: ficwriter1966 Date: December 5th, 2011 03:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm chuckling a wee bit over Sam wearing his maternity blouse in Bobby's last, best memory. *g*

Yeah, there were bits of logic!fail (notably the whole Security situation), but overall I thought it was Made Of Awesome. Beautifully performed by all involved.

I did wonder how the real Bob Singer felt about directing an episode about The Death of Bobby Singer. One would think it'd mess with his head a bit...
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 5th, 2011 04:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Maternity blouse? O.o

I did wonder how the real Bob Singer felt about directing an episode about The Death of Bobby Singer. One would think it'd mess with his head a bit...

Ha! Yeah, no doubt!
ficwriter1966 From: ficwriter1966 Date: December 6th, 2011 02:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, that white shirt with the pale blue design. It only buttons down about 1/3 of the way and is really puffy below that. It looks just like a maternity blouse.

These days, it's appropriate Jared!wear. *g*

I'm in the Denial camp right now. Bobby just can't die!!

Like you, I'm also hoping for an eleventh hour miracle from a certain angel who's missing his trenchcoat.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 6th, 2011 04:21 am (UTC) (Link)
The Denial camp is a great place to be.
percysowner From: percysowner Date: December 5th, 2011 07:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Completely non-spoilery observations from this episode and the last one. This is the first time a Reaper has appeared human from the get go. In Faith, Abandon All Hope, Death Takes a Holiday the Reapers have always been portrayed as human shaped non humans. Even Tess was first seen as a white floating thing. She only appeared human in order to get Dean to listen to her. Since Bobby recognized the Reaper immediately, I don't see a reason why he should have come looking human. I'm very suspicious that the "Reaper" is and actual Reaper.

You noted that Dick shot his own gun. The gun may be special, but the other factor is that Dick probably loaded the gun himself getting Leviathan DNA on the bullets. Since the Leviathan work through DNA manipulation, it is possible that Dick's DNA was working to convince Bobby to give up, not a Reaper.

I don't want Bobby to die and I'm willing to accept a logical explanation as to why he doesn't, but I have no idea where we go from here. I just wanted to note that there is some wiggle room here.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 6th, 2011 04:24 am (UTC) (Link)
Wiggle room is good, and the more potential avenues of non-death for Bobby the better. Welcome to the Denial camp, there may be a marshmallow roast later. :-)
cordelia_gray From: cordelia_gray Date: December 6th, 2011 08:13 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, damnit, now I'm crying again.

Your screencaps of their faces are killing me :(

Sometimes I forget this show can break my heart like that, but man.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 6th, 2011 06:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
They really do come out with some heartwrenching stuff, don't they. Especially for a horror show!
silverblaze85 From: silverblaze85 Date: January 10th, 2012 06:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
Okay, so I -just- watched this episode (I refrained until 7.11 came up, so I could jump the month of unknowing), and I always pull up your picspam reaction to use while I'm watching it (because it's amusing to see what you notice that I totally don't, and your tie report, and you're just eerily dead-on usually. Like, I think the writers are reading your pages!!), and I just had a quick question for you. Because, you know, you are awesome at predicting things.

Is Bobby an honorary Winchester, or are the boys honorary Singers? Because we all know that the Winchesters are like bouncy-balls when it comes to death. Mary excluded, they've all come back from the dead. *clings to that precious, precious hope* Right? Right??
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: January 11th, 2012 03:40 am (UTC) (Link)
Is Bobby an honorary Winchester, or are the boys honorary Singers?

I think it's kind of a mutual thing, but heavier on the Winchester side if only for the fact they have him outnumbered (and are the main characters). But besides Mary (who has briefly come back a few times in different ways, not including past!Mary), there's John (who briefly came back before moving on to somewhere glowy), and Adam, (who briefly came back from Heaven before getting stuck in the pit with Lucifer), so we most likely will get a 'briefly come back' for Bobby before he moves on, hopefully to something awesome.

He has already died and come back fully once (end of Season Five), so he's certainly gotten in on the Winchester revolving door on the afterlife. It would take one hell of a cosmic interference to bring him back from absolute brain death though. Not that that means it's ruled out, just that it's nor terribly likely. :-/

Faint hope is there though. I'm not going to crush anyone's faint hope, especially when I could easily be wrong.
