Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 7.14
Contains profanity and rambling. And a spoiler for Sherlock Series One and Doctor Who Series Two. o.O

Spoiler and Theory Summary


Spoilers everywhere.

Sam gets attacked by evil clowns, because there's a monster that uses childhood fears to get at people that some kids called up at a birthday party somehow or something like that. Also, the Impala might return. Which would be cool, because the last evil clown they had, they didn't have the Impala either.

What I'm hoping, but what I doubt will happen, is that Sam will go 'Pft!' and laugh because he has scarier crap living in his head every day now. Or it'll unsettle him enough that this fragile "I'M TOTALLY COPING WITH IT, LOOK AT ME COPE, ALL ON MY OWN!" crap will get fractured and we'll start finding out what's really going on with Sam, because it's about time for some development on that front.

What I'm really really hoping though, is that it'll go after Dean too. Because I suspect his childhood fears (being things more along the lines of abandonment and not being needed and not being useful to the family and father issues and all that good stuff) and his current mental state are a teeeny bit connected, and that could fracture his mental crap and get it out in the open too, and get some progress happening for that situation. And could also hypothetically include some cool guest stars or flashbacks.

Or there will be evil clowns, and nothing of greater import will come of it. But I still hope show's got more up its sleeve than that.




Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 7.14 - "Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie"

I am so earwormed by P!nk's "Funhouse" right now, it's not even funny. I hope someone does a vid to it with clips from this episode and "Everybody Loves a Clown". Someone might have already used it for ELaC, but really, if there's more evil clowns, there needs to be more vid. Right?

Anyway. SO SIDETRACKED BY EARWORMS.

"This used to be a fun house, but now it's full of evil clowns..."

SORRY! MOVING ON.


-Skipping the THEN. Though I bet it's got lots of ELaC in it. 30 seconds. Short THEN. O.o

-Hee! Is Sam getting a 'running from a very non-threatening thing' open like Dean did in Yellow Fever, or is this going to be a fake non-threatening thing that's actually threatening?
Photo 1
Photo 2


-Considering he's still got undealt-with Lucifer-in-the-brain issues, Sam is a seriously altered puppy right now.

-"If it bleeds, you can kill it." Shades of "Predator: The Musical? Weeeeeelll... Leviathans bleed black ooze. Not so much luck in the killing department, except for that one guy in Bobby's basement. So maybe "if it bleeds or has a sensitivity to common household chemicals and can be decapitated you can kill it."

-There are going to be so many animated GIFs of Sam peeking out from behind this car aren't there?
Photo 3


-Hi clown!
Photo 4


-Sam has this face. It's amazing. He does things with it that make my tea explode.
Photo 5


-All the barricades in all the world won't keep out the monsters in your head. If this one's in his head. Not sure how this manifestation is working here yet.
Photo 6


-Okay shootitshootitshootitshootitwhy have you not shot it yeeeeeeet? O.O
Photo 7


-HEEEE! Rainbow sparkle splat!
Photo 8
Photo 9


-The countdown sound of the chyron is reminiscent of the 24 countdown clock sound. Kind of cool, actually.
Photo 10


-RINGING PAYPHONE! OH CRAP IT'S MYCROFT! XD
Photo 11


-"I am the egg-man." *snerk* Like from Sonic the Hedgehog? And I'm guessing that would mean it's Frank then. Darn. Mycroft would scare the crap out of Frank, wouldn't he?
Photo 12


-Sorry, brain's on random.

-Longest title yet? I think it could be.
Photo 13


-*blocking guest stars, but hoping for a familiar name in there somewhere*

-Apparently Fred Savage has been taken over by a Leviathan. ... but WHY??? O.o

-"This whole 'protocol du jour' thing is really creeping my cheese." ...I have no idea what that means. But I'm giggling.

-"You spawn a monster baby see how quick you wanna dive back in the pool." And having her killed in front of him when he wasn't sure if she could be turned from the whole murdery death thing didn't help either, I'm betting.

-Sam's by a SUV-ish thing, Dean's heading for a... no idea. Maverick? No. Whatever. Classic-ish non-Impala. Are they in separate vehicles now? Okay, something has to break soon, because that's just wrong.

-I see someone had a childhood fear of octopi.
Photo 14


-Wichita, Kansas. KANSAS. Perfect place for some confrontation of childhood fears, yeah?

-"Aren't giant octopi kinda rare around here."/"And yet, here we are." I like this coroner guy too. That's two awesome coroner guys in a row.
Photo 15


-"So what are we looking for? Octo-vamp? Vamptopus?" No, Dean, that's season 12 when the CW lets go or goes under and the SyFy channel picks you up. Annnnd TIE REPORT! Stripes going in the same direction on both of them, seems promising, but they are quite complex ties, so things are not as simple and harmonious as they appear on the surface. Sam's tie interestingly has a kind of fabric texture vertical striping overlay to it, so yes, something going on under the surface there. *nods like she's not insane*
Photo 16


-Written by Dabb and Loflin, designated crown princes of backstory, so yay. Directed by Mike Rohl, who's directed a bunch of episodes.

-Ah, and octopus man was having a thing with the nanny. And I'm guessing that's one of the kids that called up the childhood fear monster.
Photo 17


-Ha, ha, ha. House number. 667. The Neighbour of the Beast. Or more accurately, the House across the street from the Beast. Cute. Lucifer's lurking around somewhere still. *nods*
Photo 18


-"I thought you said no hot chicks?"/"We don't know that she's hot." Pfffffft. Dean. *headshake*
Photo 19


-Title is a restaurant name. Nanny is cute. Thing behind Nanny might be unusually funky clock or just weird metal flower art. Opinions?
Photo 20


-"She thinks there's a monster in her closet."/Dean: *INTENSE LOOK OF INTENSITY WITH SWALLOWING AND JAW-CLENCHING* Me: Bwahahahahahahah! Yeah.
Photo 21
Photo 22


-She's drawing an octopus. Having brief flashback to Doctor Who episode "Fear Her" which is always disorienting. Only in this case if she was drawing things to life and letting them loose, it would kind of be in reverse.
Photo 23


-"I tried to warn my Dad, that the monster would get him." Yeah, that never really does much good, does it?
Photo 24


-'RAWR! I'MMA OCTOPUS! ...What's that? I've got nine legs, not eight? What? I- JUST SHUT UP! I'MMA EAT YOOOOOU!' Hee!
Photo 25


-Later that night a man in pyjamas is being chased by a horse. Rather uncappably. Of course.

-Ohhhh, it's a unicorn. Wait... Who's afraid of unicorns? Did this guy do bad things to virgins? It which case he deserved it if said virgins weren't consenting. Hm. I don't know whether to be glad this guy's dead or not. I should just hit play and wait for the exposition.
Photo 26
Photo 27
Photo 28


-Also, who am I to talk? I was scared of Big Bird. :-P

-AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! From Houses of the Holy. "You know what, there's a ton of lore on unicorns too. In fact, I hear that they ride on silver moonbeams, and that they shoot rainbows out of their ass!" And so, the lore is dead on. *snerk*
Photo 29


-Ah yes. Still a ways to go to get to this point, but why not check in on Sam getting his ass imperiled by evil fear-monster clowns. Hm. Is it a Boggart, or since this is Kripke's gig and not Rowling's, a Bogeyman?
Photo 30


-Beep noise when he hits the clowns HEE!

-"If it bleeds you can kill it." Aaaand if it sparkles... you can write a series of romance novels about it?
Bella: "Your skin is pasty and white, your smile seems painted on, and your nose is red and bulbous. Edward, you're a..."
Edward: "Say it. Out loud."
Bella: "You're a... clown."
Edward: *HONK*
...somehow I don't think it would have sold nearly as well.
Photo 31


-Hee! Sam getting beat up by clowns. Also, Sam. Your hair is in danger of impeding your line of sight in hand to hand combat. You should get it- what am I saying. You suck at hand-to-hand anyway. *dismissive handwave*
Photo 32


-And we're back in the pre-Now again, with Dean investigating a hole.
Photo 33


-Dean has a new tie. Stripes going in the opposite direction, still not a simple striped tie, so not much real change, but we don't know which way Sam's stripes are going, so jury is out. How many ties do these guys pack around, anyway?
Photo 34


-"So, what, like a lance?" Oooo, excellent guess, Dean! A jousting knight would be a possible answer. Nifty.

-"His father did take him to a friend's birthday party yesterday." Surprise! Yeah, not much. Damn spoilers. Seriously though, what kind of thing did a bunch of eight-year-olds unleash at the Supernatural equivalent of Chuck E. Cheese? Does everyone have a hyperactive closet monster?

-Rock walls, clock radio phones and masks. It's the return of the funky hotel room! \o/
Photo 35


-"You remember a chain called 'Plucky Pennywhistle's'?" Ha. Oh Sam definitely does. Not so much a childhood fear as a "lurking in the back of the mind even after getting your soul trapped at the mercy of Lucifer for a few subjective decades" fear. Maybe Sam's head-Lucifer would have better luck getting to Sam if he put on a rubber nose and a crazy wig.
Photo 36


-Woooooooooow. Now that's a hotel room! \o/
Photo 37


-"This isn't about your clown thing, is it?"/"What?....no." Sam, Sam, Sam. You are such a very bad liar.
Photo 38
Photo 39


-"Sammy?" Awwww.

-"99.99% of all clowns can't hurt you." Hehehehehe. Dean has no idea what show he's in. Silly. *pats him*

-Eeeeek. No. Eeeek.
Photo 40


-Ah, Sam tie change! Stripes going the same direction as Dean's tie change, so they're still on the same wavelength or something. Still complex striping, so no change there. Lighter, not as bold, feeling under-confident, off-balance? Yeah maybe a wee bit.
Photo 41


-Hey, he's been a server-guy or something on the show before, hasn't he?
Photo 42


-Okay, yeah, creepy red-eyed animatronic clowns are creepy, but what is up with the faceless fairy over Sam's shoulder? O.o
Photo 43


-Yeaaaaah. That's not right.
Photo 44


-Oh, well, pft. If you're going to put the writing on the wall, why not? Looks like there's a kid afraid of evil basketballs and one afraid of Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc. which given the intensity of Disney copyright protection is likely as close to a Monsters Inc. crossover as will ever get to air. I wonder if this episode is why the Monsters Inc. crossover I wrote in 2008 has been experiencing a weird sudden flurry of favoriting over on FF.net. XD
Photo 45


-"Johnson, FBI." Hey, I thought you guys were sticking to 'Smith' now?

-"'Aiding children's development'" Those are some really intense air-quotes there.
Photo 46


-"Plucky magically transforms it into rainbows and candy." Yeeeaaaaaah. Sure.

-"If these fears run wild it effects kids long into their adulthood." Naw. Never happens. Does it, Sam?
Photo 47
Photo 48
Photo 49
Photo 50


-Sketchy Janitor is not inspiring confidence. If he was acting less like he was worried about his meth lab in the basement being discovered, it would help.
Photo 51


-"Come back after closing." Alone. With the sketchy janitor and all the masses of creepy clown paraphernalia you can shake a stick at.
Photo 52


-Extremely random here, but I'm quite impressed that they re-upholstered that chair with the same material as the drapes. I don't know why I am, I just am.
Photo 53


-Well, there you are then. It wasn't farting rainbows, that was the tail. Or whatever. Close enough for lore.
Photo 54


-"Some kid puked in the ball pit." Eeeuuuuuaaaagch. Okay. I can see why this guy might be inclined towards going evil or something, if that's what's going on.
Photo 55


-Oh this looks like fun. Giant ball-sucking machine and a set-up for something like the crusher scene in Star Wars, with something lurking in the depths? Bring it on.
Photo 56


-Or Jaws. Jaws works.
Photo 57


-Little bit late, guys.
Photo 58


-"They think the ball washer did it."/"The what?"/"The ball-washer."/"The what?" Dean, never stop being twelve.
Photo 59


-Sam doubts his brother's detailed knowledge of shark anatomy. I blame the sideburns.
Photo 60


-AAAAH! THERE'S TWO EMFS! AAAAH! *flails*
Photo 61
Photo 62


-AND SUDDENLY A GIANT LASER EYED ROBOT RAVAGED... Seattle? Toronto? Does Wichita have a tower with a thing on top?
Photo 63


-Back to the Now, where Sam is still getting beaten up by clowns. I warned you about that hair, Sam.
Photo 64


-And back to the not so Now but nearly Now, with a Journal being consulted! \o/
Photo 65


-"Maybe a Tulpa?" FIRST SEASON MONSTER REF! Wheeee! \o/

-"Yeah a guy in his thirties hanging out at Plucky's alone, that's normal. That's not pervy at all." Heh. Well, there was a window treatment store right nearby, you could hang out there and wait for the screaming to start?
Photo 66


-Business entirely as usual, but they roped off the ball pit. Nice. Oh, hey, evil octopus on the wall!
Photo 67


-Sammy does 'bad cop' quite well, actually, even when surrounded by clowns.
Photo 68


-Oh dear. Dean's going to go play with the toys, isn't he?
Photo 69


-"Giant Slinky!" Why not indeed?
Photo 70


-"You mainline the Kool-aid, hunh?" Just a little bit.
Photo 71


-"So that's your excuse." Okay, Sam's good at bad cop when it's semi-silent glowering and menacing. The direct bad-copping, not so much.
Photo 72


-"It's not as if I'd ever do anything illegal."/*tablesmack* "Sure you wouldn't." Pfffffft!
Photo 73


-Dean and Sam are texting now. With capitals and punctuation. Cool. Makes sense when one of you is interviewing suspects/witnesses and the other is stalking an employee.
Photo 74


-"'Special' Agent? Wow!" *facepalm* Hee!
Photo 75


-The "Jackass" chorus. Heee, and awww. Dean and kids.
Photo 76
Photo 77
Photo 78
Photo 79


-*giggles all over Dean and the kid bonding*

-"They have laser eyes." Oh dear god, it's the reincarnation of Ronald Resnick. O.o
Photo 80


-I'm just going to keep giggling, I think. It seems to be the most sensible option at this point.
Photo 81


-SAM'S BLOCKED BY CLOWN DANCE! XD
Photo 82
Photo 83
Photo 84
Photo 85


-You know, given how carefully he's watching the stairs, I wonder if someone didn't slip and skid down them on a few takes there.
Photo 86


-*sneeeerk*
Photo 87
Photo 88
Photo 89


-*babbles about meth labs and fingerprints*/"You're not using kid's nightmares to smoke people are you, Cliff?"/"...I don't... think so?" HEEEEEE! And you thought the drugs made the world go wacky.
Photo 90
Photo 91


-I'm wondering if they didn't have Cliff in here just to show us that Sam's hair isn't really that long. Or is this a glimpse of Sam's future hair...
Photo 92


-"You ever shroom in a ball pit? *turns to Sam, gasps* Not that I would, Agents." *facepalm* *headshake* *giggle*
Photo 93
Photo 94


-"Robot, about the size of a house, shoots destructo-beams out of its eyes."/"At least I'll see it coming."
Photo 95
Photo 96


-Oh well, nothing like a nice obvious burning altar. So much for my unstated theory that adorable wee Tyler had some psychic eruption thing going on and it was spilling over into other kids. And I have no idea whose altar this is.
Photo 97


-"Drop it." Aw, and I was hoping he was just genuinely nice. Darn. I didn't suspect him at all, but I was really hung up on the telepathic kid idea, so I stopped looking.
Photo 98
Photo 99


-"As far as I know, none of these things could poop out a unicorn." Ahhh, but that's what using the kids drawings does, accesses the power of kid's imagination or something.
Photo 100


-Or fear. fear works. *nods*

-Ah Dean, going for a second weapon there?
Photo 101


-Or throwing the book at him. Ha Ha Ha. It's surprisingly effective. And not capping well.

-Um. Dean. You might want to tear the actual picture.
Photo 102


-"No drawing, no Iron Giant." See, now that movie was produced by Warner Brothers, much less legal wrangling for permission to reference than a Disney/Pixar film.

-"I've got ways to take care of bullies. Like that FBI guy, he's your friend, right?" And suddenly Dean's attention is a lot more focussed than it is by a gun,
Photo 103


-"Five minutes ago, his business card was torched." His entirely fake business card, but it did belong to him and he did touch it, so there you are. Never give anyone your business card, for they might use it as a spell component.

-And we have reached the Now. Ish.
Photo 104
Photo 105


-HAHAHAHAHA! "RIGHT FRIGGIN' NOW" (or at least a few minutes ago)
Photo 106


-"And when the management spot opened up-" Oh dude. It's a manager job at a fast food chain. Killing over it is not the typical response.
Photo 107


-It's definitely a personal object.
Photo 108


-"Those parents were horrible, they deserved what they got." They might not have been great, but there are far worse parents, dude.

-"You had a little girl watch her dad get ganked by the closet monster, that's putting her first?" Excellent point Dean.

-Also, pause faces are awesome.
Photo 109


-"I would've been." Yep. There had to be a personal side to this. There always is when people start murdering. ...I can't figure out how that second face works. Also, NARWHALS!
Photo 110
Photo 111


-Ah, and a brother that drowned. Family is all over everything on this one. Shock!
Photo 112
Photo 113


-Apparently, clowns brought up from some kid's nightmare have, uh, nards. That's disturbing. O.o
Photo 114


-Aha! If it loses teeth you can kill it, maybe?
Photo 115


-And now Dean has enough spell components to try to turn the spell against the guy. Water. Um. Eeek.
Photo 116


-You missed at that range? That was less than 12 feet. Dude, you suck.
Photo 117
Photo 118


-Oh crap. Maybe it's not the water he's afraid of.
Photo 119


-Like Red Sky at Morning. Spontaneous dry-land drowning. And ghost brothers, sort of.
Photo 120


-AHAHAHA. AND THIS. XD
Photo 121
Photo 122
Photo 123


-Was the purpose of this episode solely to get Sam beat up by clowns and then covered in clown sparkles? I believe I approve of this. If we can't have deep, meaningful grappling with childhood fears and the breaking down of walls, by all means lets have some sparkly clown crack! \o/
Photo 124


-And a reunion shot a bit reminiscent of the one at the end of "The End"
Photo 125


-Yep. When you show up covered in clown sparkles, best you can do it throw your hands in the air and invite all the mockery to get it over with before you hit the road and get trapped in the car with it.
Photo 126
Photo 127


-"I'm sorry for psychologically scarring you." Well there's something no one else in the Universe is likely to say, so take it where you can get it, Sam.
Photo 128
Photo 129


-"Which time?"/"Shut up, seriously." AHHAHAHAHAHAHAH. XD

-"And now what else could a clown possibly ever do to me?" True. Though you may not want to tempt fate there, Sam.

-GIANT RAINBOW SLINKY! AWWW! WHO'S THE BEST BABY BROTHER EVER! \o/
Photo 130


-"A clown-phobia sobriety chip." *facepalm* Dean can be a bit of a dick sometimes. But he means well. I'm pretty sure.
Photo 131


-Kind of glad they didn't get the Impala back this episode, if Sam's going to be riding around in clown-sparkles until they find a shower and a laundromat.
Photo 132


-Sam got to decapitate it, which is also therapeutic, considering he didn't actually beat the clowns, just kept them off until the spell ended.
Photo 133


-GAAAAH WAS THAT WINK REALLY NECESSARY??? O.O
Photo 134


And I have important things to do today, so I'm posting now and will fix any errors later. Play nice! Avoid the ball pit! IT HAS SHARKS.

I have no idea really what I'm doing with the tie stuff or why I started it, I'm just making it up as I go along. XD

And thank you for the Ronald Resnik connection!

Ronald got a rough deal, he deserves a shout-out now and then. :-)

"Was the purpose of this episode solely to get Sam beat up by clowns and then covered in clown sparkles?"

I believe you covered the meta on this in one sentence :)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 12th, 2012 07:21 am (UTC) (Link)
Yup, pretty much. Hoping for something with a bit more substance before we hit another hiatus, but this was fun.
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: February 11th, 2012 11:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
HAH!!! Ronald Resnick!!!! Totally!!!!!

(I did doubt they had the budget to pull off a large robot destroying parts of Kansas.)

Maybe the kid's been watching a lot of Dark Angel and that's why he's got the Space Needle in his drawing...?

I believe the baddie was played by Julie McNiven's hubby. I wonder whether Jensen had to apologise to him for making out with his missus in the back of the Impala?

He'd be freaking out when Dean started talking to him then, since he looks exactly like Alec. XD

I wonder whether Jensen had to apologise to him for making out with his missus in the back of the Impala?

Naw, it's all part of the job for actors. Cool family connection though!

You have no idea how much insane laughter happened during this episode (mom's laughter was just fine of course). The glitter did us in, holy crap on a stick did it ever..lmao. I suspected overly happy employee right away--but then again, anyone that cheerful has to be evil, or have deep psychological issues. *ponders* I should really suspect myself while I am at work.

Anyway, death my unicorn for the friggin win. Oh did I need a crack episode. And now I want a damn slinky. I always did love those.


Oh, and we both agreed the set design people had a field day with the motel room. That totem, wallpaper and curtains--oh my.

They've had some really cheerful servers and so forth on the show before though, and not many have turned out to be evil.

*ponders* I should really suspect myself while I am at work.

I am in absolutely no danger of suspecting myself at work.

"I am the egg-man." *snerk* Like from Sonic the Hedgehog?

I am the Walrus.

(Though for all I know, Frank really would be referencing Sonic the Hedgehog instead of the Beatles. . . .)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 12th, 2012 07:31 am (UTC) (Link)
He does have a lot of tech lurking around, he would have been 35 when it came out, and the 10th anniversary of his family dying would have been looming, maybe he picked it up as a distraction?

The Beatles are way more likely though.
bellatemple From: bellatemple Date: February 12th, 2012 07:37 am (UTC) (Link)
I kind of like him as an old school video game nerd, though. Hmmmm.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 12th, 2012 07:53 am (UTC) (Link)
If he was really old school though, wouldn't the code phrase be "It's-a me, Mario" or "You are likely to be eaten by a Grue"?
bellatemple From: bellatemple Date: February 12th, 2012 07:59 am (UTC) (Link)
Or just snickering like that dog from Duck Hunt!
brigid_tanner From: brigid_tanner Date: February 12th, 2012 04:35 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks for this. i lost interest and fell asleep about halfway through the ep. I don't think I missed much.

Sam getting beaten up by a clown and coated in sparkles about covers it.
phorenice From: phorenice Date: February 12th, 2012 10:34 am (UTC) (Link)
Hee, I did watch the "Then" (but was totally unspoiled otherwise) and the clowns made me squee so hard I didn't even think about expecting character development. So I was totally satisfied with getting Sam covered in sparkles.

Hey, he's been a server-guy or something on the show before, hasn't he?
He reminded me of the server-guy at the beginning of "Wishful Thinking" but that might just be due to the red hair and the colorful vest and the whacky cheerfulness. Come to think of it - little Tyler kind of looks like Kneel-Before-Todd Todd from that episode. Wrong age to be the same actor, but still. I might have to re-watch "Wishful Thinking"...
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 13th, 2012 02:45 am (UTC) (Link)
Wishful Thinking was loads of fun, and I still think Sam didn't really melt that coin down, and it'll turn up again somewhere.

This used to be a funhouse
but now it's full of evil clowns.
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down down down
I'm gonna burn it down.


Totally appropriate song to get earwormed by for this episode. Hee!

-"A clown-phobia sobriety chip." *facepalm* Dean can be a bit of a dick sometimes. But he means well. I'm pretty sure.

Except when he means to be a bit of a dick. Sometimes. In a harmlessly-intentioned sort of way. Which -- when it's intentional -- I find inexplicable hilarious. Just like when Sam is deliberately being a bratty younger brother on purpose. Ah, the joys of siblinghood. ;)

So lovely to be able to take a breather before things gear up for the end of the season. I think Dean and Sam badly needed a little break from the Bigger Picture to have a chance to decompress a little and remember that they are people too. Plus... Evil clowns! Ball washer, ball washer, ba-- , unicorns and rainbows! Protective Big Brother Dean! Big Brother hazing/pranking! LMAO!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 13th, 2012 02:49 am (UTC) (Link)
This was definitely a breather episode, and it is good to see the boys being bratty brothers at each other.
From: sssshup Date: February 12th, 2012 07:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
A few thoughts
--I now TOTALLY notice the ties. Big smile when I saw the directional harmony. Dean's was calmer more sedate as was Dean. Sam in harmony with Dean but with his own crazy issues--clowns on the surface, Lucifer issues roiling below.

--Glad they got new names--Agents Tom and John Smith, no relation HA. You noted Sam was Agent Johnson, btw Dean was Agent Jones. Thanks Frank!

--Also thanks, I assume again to Frank for tweaking their credit card fraud profile and getting them back into garish motels and out of horrendous soul sapping hovels. Yeah for the Tiki motel.

--I thought Sam's blocked by clowns dance looked remarkably like his stutter step of fear when he had to run the fire juggler's guantlet in "My Heart Will Go On"

--Also loved the return of brotherly love--it has been missing for soooo long. Please, please, please let the name Amy be stricken from the show--I don't want to hear Amy, or Jamie or even Mamie ever again.

--DID ANYONE ELSE NOTICE? DEAN LAUGHED!!! Not snorted, not chuckled but LAUGHED (at Sam, but still) At first I thought first time since Bobby (did whatever he did), then I thought since before Cas blew, and then I thought I'm not sure when he last laughed--maybe when he failed to get Cas laid in S5? Does anyone else remember? Anyway, he has a nice laugh.

I'm hoping the slow shift in naming protocol indicates a slow shift back towards the old way of doing things, like, I dunno, DRIVING THE IMPALA?? XD

Dean did really laugh, and that was good. They both need to cut loose now and then.

Really enjoyed this ep: light and fun to prepare you for the inevitable angst-fest to come!

Maybe Lucifer really did torment Sam with clowns, in between burning him alive and breaking his mind. His evil knows no bounds.

I have a tissue box that looks a lot like the one from the motel room. The top of it is one of those Easter Island rock heads with the Kleenex coming out the nose :D

Those cool, helpful, easygoing coroners are twinging my Bad Guy radar. I suspect LEVIATHAN. Head for the latest 'weird headline' location, replace the coroner, wait for a Winchester. You can keep an eye on the Winchesters and sneak some food in the meantime!

Indeed. Clowns are a definite possibility and Mark Pellegrino could totally rock a Harlequin-style clown outfit.

You do have an excellent point there. Who knows, depending how thin they can spread themselves, they could just have most of the coroners in the country already, harvesting.

"Sam has this face. It's amazing. He does things with it that make my tea explode."

What brand of tea do you buy cause I'd really like to see that happen. :)

Killer octopi, unicorns and clowns....oh I must not forget, landsharks..in Kansas. Must be a SN episode.

Dean, Dean, Dean - enjoy harassing Sam while ya can cause you never know when you might wake up in a small Cessna flying over the Rockies. Bwahahaha!!

Cheapo 100 bags in a sack generic tea. It's more me snorting into it that makes it explode, but Sam's face caused the snorting, so there you are.

this one was fun :D so I expect pain and agony for the rest of the season :)

what the heck was up with the creeeepy faceless fairy?!?! MUm & I were quite distracted by it....

Star Wars ball pit scene :)

loved the playing with the time markers :)

given the size of that hole in the fence, that was one FREAKING big unicorn. Also, the equine running away and the equine in the closeup shots were not the same animal :)

glittery Sam :D giant-slinky Dean :D

awesome recap :D

The faceless fairy was like a subliminal creepiness inducer thing, maybe?

Funhouse

"I am so earwormed by P!nk's "Funhouse" right now, it's not even funny. I hope someone does a vid to it with clips from this episode and "Everybody Loves a Clown". Someone might have already used it for ELaC, but really, if there's more evil clowns, there needs to be more vid. Right?"
Found a vid! Exactly what you asked for. Dunno if you've already seen is since this was posted so long ago, but... *shrugs*

Re: Funhouse
