Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 6.12 - CaffieneKittySpace

Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 6.12
Right. How do I do these things again?

Contains profanity and speculation.

Spoiler and Spec Summary


Well, except the title, "Like A Virgin" which links to a rumour that means along with Sam's shiny new ensouled self, this is probably the episode with the virgins disappearing and the dragon rampaging around. Kind of hoping the dragon's being set up, but probably not.

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 6.12 - Like A Virgin

*ignores VCR* Live reaction again some more, hope no one minds. Since it's been so long, I'm not even going to skip the previouslies.

Three, two, one, GO!

-WE HAVE MONTAGE!!! \o/ With The Road So Far, even. Hunh. First time that's been used mid-season, isn't it?
Photo 1

-"Back In The Saddle" by... Aerosmith? Okay... Ah. Released in 1976.

-"Don't. Scratch. The wall." Yeaaaaaaah. Love Death. *huggles*

-Considering how the last airplane on this show fared and it's showing up in the pre-titlecard sequence, flying girl, you are screwed.
Photo 2

Photo 3

-And flying guy is screwed too. Equal opportunity monster chow.
Photo 4

-"What was that?" Hahhahahaahha. Yeah, it's a dragon. *ticks spoiler* Hm. Guy said he wasn't expecting weather, could it be the kind of dragon that causes storms? And aren't storms considered demonic omens? So are storm-creating dragons related to demons, or do they just chase demons around and make storms. ...I have a headache now. (Lurking dragon is uncappable at this point.)

-...And it's a good thing I'm not likely to ever get on a plane again in my lifetime, because FUCKING HELL. Buses. Trains, trains are good. Yeah. Or telecommuting. O.O

-"Probably not." Well, aren't you full of sunshine and sparkles, Castiel.
Photo 5

-"If you wanted to kill your brother you should have done it outright." Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow. OW.

-"He's never been through this." True. Was also once true of his first day of school, but I suspect that involved a little less soul-flaying.
Photo 6

-"Pilot was found 17 miles away, flambéed." Yeah, not looking too good for our dragon being a scapegoat.

-Written by Adam Glass, he's familiar.

-Hi Sam! Figured you'd be up and around soon, not like they'd let Jared lay around napping for the rest of the season. Buuuuut... He came to alone in the safe room, with the door open. I wonder if there's a chance this isn't Sam, but an opportunistic demon? Am I being paranoid? Maybe. Still, hosing him down with holy water couldn't hurt.
Photo 7

Photo 8

-AND HUGGING!!! \o/ *waves hello to Phil Sgriccia's director credit*
Photo 9

Photo 10

-"I saw- felt Lucifer snap your neck." Okay, he remembers pre-Pit without breaching the wall, good to know.

-"You really don't remember-"/"Let's be glad!" DON'T. SCRATCH. THE WALL. Geez, Bobby!
Photo 11

-"How did I get back, was it Cas?"/"Not exactly."/"Dean, what did you do?" Ahahahahahahahhaha. Yeah. That's a solid chain of Winchester logic right there.

-Something really nifty about the way Dean is positioned (except for the unfortunate Hellcats on his elbow) and the framing of this shot, I'm not sure what it is. Something about the focus and lighting, and Dean in a solid shirt while Sam and Bobby are in plaids... I don't know. It's cool.
Photo 12

-"Why the poop-face?" *snerk* Dean is four.

-Ah, yes. Nearly getting your throat slit by your surrogate soulless son would leave a few lingering creepies. Also, concrete timeline check, 6.11 happened ten days ago!! WOO! I have no idea what month or even year it is at this point, but yay for concretely measured passage of time. That must have been a fun ten days. :-P

-"I'm sending Death a damn fruit basket." Judging from Death's eating preferences the previous times you've seen him, he might like it better if you sent him something deep-fried.

-"Right. "cause that's what you did when you got back from Hell." Heeheeheehee. Cutest little ginormous brother ever. Also very correct.
Photo 13

Photo 14

-Oh hey, another data point. Bobby and Rufus swap phone duty. I'd guess when one isn't on, the other has all their lines forwarded to the appropriate alternate lines. Yay Rufus and Bobby teamwork!

-Sam and Dean, in the Impala, music in the background, on a hunt, talking about the case. Yeah. It's a cozy place to be right here. *beams* (And yes of course it's all going to go to hell before too long no doubt but shhh. Happy place time now.)

-SUITS! Tie stripe report: very similar colours, but going opposite directions. Hmmm... BUT, currently sloping down and in towards each other. Aww. Brothery tie schmoop.
Photo 15

-It's the 'I don't care what the consequences are, I got Sammy back' smirk. Not terribly cappable, but here you go.
Photo 16

-HOLY FREAKING PINKSPLOSION. Jeez. I guess they're going the stereotypical 'virgin girls are obsessed with pink flowery fluffy things' route?
Photo 17

-"Big AZ" strikes me as a far-too easily mockable name for a fast food joint. Ooo, mini printer behind the laptop is nifty.
Photo 18

-And, since I haven't mentioned it yet, how awesome is it that they're in Portland, OR? A place Vancouver can double for without even breathing hard?

-"Did you steal that from her room?" Dean's face. THIS FACE. Forever. Oh my god how does he have this face. XD
Photo 19

-Oh crap. Dean and a Catholic girls school. I think I read that fic. (No, no, not that one, the one with the knitting)
Photo 20

-Nope, not Dean, just a dragon.
Photo 21

-Suits again, completely different ties. Stripes going the same way, but different colors. How many ties do they have, anyway? Is anyone still wardrobe tracking?
Photo 22

-Ah she's alive and still around. I'm guessing this means she's... um... not on the dragon's diet plan? And that she's got a very awkward conversation in her future.

-"Matt Barne didn't count!" Well, he apparently counts for the dragon and that just saved you from being dragon-napped (and a very particular dragon too, if it's taken her ring off, and left her alive, hmm. Well, many dragons are considered honorable. I wonder if the people it's taken are actually dead? Aside from the well-toasted pilot of course.)

-"I googled fire, claws, flying, stealing virgins and gold, and it all takes me to the same place." Gamer sites? D&D forums? Fanfic? Also, I think I see the 'legal reason' delay on this episode. Googled. Sometimes they get funny about it being used as a verb on TV, which is why a lot of TV shows use fake search engine sites instead of Google to avoid the legal crap.

-"World of Warcraft fansites." ...WHAT??? O.O OMG!! Holy crap, I was joking about gamer sites! XD Okay, maybe that's the legal delay there then.

-Bobby cooking. Ah. Brings back memories.
Photo 23

-"Could you make a few calls?"/"To who, Hogwarts?" We're just referencing the hell out of all geek culture ever tonight, aren't we? WOO!! HARRY POTTER!! And there's another potential legal clearing thing as J.K. Rowling can be a bit territorial, I've heard?

-It's a very nice hotel room, rustic-lite, and I kind of want that couch, even though it's orange.
Photo 24

-"Dad never wrote anything about dragons." Oh good. I thought for a second we were going to get a back-door support for that tie-in novel I haven't read yet because I have enough misery in my life. Also adding 'Neverending Story' to the reference total.

-"Hey, did we hunt a skinwalker lately." This is Dean's 'ohcrap' face.
Photo 25


-Also... that was a very interesting little pause and smile after he said her name... do I detect "History" between Bobby and Dr. Viziak?

-"I'm going to San Francisco." Oh. Well I guess that makes more sense... Except the University of San Francisco is USF and San Francisco State University is SFSU according to Google. And what's wrong with calling the person instead of driving off and leaving Sam alone to possibly have a memory cascade and... ah. Never mind. It's a 'plot says you go somewhere now' trip. *nods*

-"Which says what? That they live in Middle Earth?" So many references!! And they're ones I get for a change! *rolls around in fannish glee*

-Yep, they're alive. And together. And.... a solution to their problem of their virginity being attractive to dragons springs to mind, but I doubt it'd happen at 9pm on the CW. Ahem.
Photo 26

-Dragon has legs. And much smaller wings than seen previously. And a face. Hunh. Ah. Mid morph. Okay, that'll save on the effects budget.

-Oooo, nice house. And evidently it's fall. Yes this was filmed in the fall most likely, but if that had been an issue for the show timeline, those leaves would have been made to disappear. ISTR they removed a foot of snow when filming Tall Tales, so clearing up some leaves would be nothing if they needed to.
Photo 27

-Dr Visyak. Not Viziak. *refrains from commenting about yaks*
Photo 28

-She looks familiar... Don't know why. She's certainly got interesting taste in tops for lounging around the house.
Photo 29

-"Kick him in the jewels." Ah, yes. 'History'.

-"What, no 12-sided dice joke?" POLYHEDRAL DICE!!! OMG I don't even care, I just love all the fan/geek/gamer references. Let's see, calling a dragon a large creature, a Katana or a long sword will do d12 damage, I think.

-"I have one in the basement." Okay. She's a medieval studies professor who's not incredulous at the thought of dragons actually on the rampage, and she has a kick ass house and a funky magic sword in the basement? And 'history' with Bobby. Can I adopt her as my Mary-Sue? Not that she necessarily is one, just if I were to make a Mary-Sue for this show, she'd be awfully close.

-Although I hope she's got staff for that house because cleaning those windows would be really annoying.
Photo 30

-AAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! That would be a cast-iron bitch to get off eBay. The shipping would be ridiculous. XD
Photo 31

-Sound fail. Dean smacking the 'rock' sounds like fiberglass. Ooops. That's okay sound crew, you're still awesome!

-Dean steps up to the rock. Operatic Soundtrack: AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! *sporfle* I'm kind of glad that they're acknowledging through subtle self-mockery that this entire hunt is pure crack. If they were trying to take this seriously it would be a bit woeful.

-Yeah, of course it doesn't work. I recommend a pick-axe. Or grenades. Grenades are always nice.
Photo 32

-Oh Bobby.
Photo 33

-Awwww, angel-hug denied. Awww.
Photo 34

-"It would be awkward." Considering how many times over the past ten days Castiel probably had his arm in Sam up to his elbow groping his soul, a hug's hardly awkward. Poor Castiel. Aw.

-"To have your soul back of course." Oh crap. And an info-dump from Castiel. There we go, scratching on the wall with an angelic sledgehammer. Yeah, that was never going to last long.

-Or C4. Lacking grenades, C4 works too.
Photo 35

-Would you trust this man with his thumb on a detonation switch? Not so much a 'reassuring' smile as a 'hell yeah let's blow some crap up' smile there, Dean.
Photo 36

-Oh dear. Yes. Iron and untempered steel can shatter under the wrong kind of force, though one would think being quenched in dragon blood would help prevent that. Dean's really having no luck at all this episode.
Photo 37

-Dean, stealing dragon loot, like the world's tallest hobbit. To quote someone's email .sig: Though shalt not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for though art crunchy and good with ketchup.
Photo 38

-Does that look like a hunter's scrapbook of crazy crap to anyone else? The dragon's keeping them alive... hm. What else is he up to?
Photo 39

-Hark! A person in peril!
Photo 40

-"Where'd you get that?"/"Comic-con!" \o/ VICTORY ARMS FOREVER!!!
Photo 41

-Okay, so if you have a special magic one-of-a-kind melee weapon, maybe that bungee idea Chuck's fans floated back in "Real Ghostbusters" is a good idea.


-Oh, there's two of them. Yay.
Photo 42

Photo 43

-Oooo. Lizardy eyes. Nifty.
Photo 44

-I don't know how well the cap will turn out, but Dean needs to be lit from below more often. Just saying.
Photo 45

-WOO! SCORE! Not many hunts come with such profitable looting opportunities. Maybe they can give the Visa and Mastercard collections departments a break for a month.
Photo 46

-"I feel like I got slipped the worst mickey of all time and woke up to find I'd burnt the whole city down." Yeowch. Well, Sam remembering is one character development arc that won't be getting stretched out over several episodes. Which leaves the Wall. Hehe. It all comes down to Winchesters and their walls. Eek.

-On a shallow note, now that Sam has his soul back, his hair is starting to show it. Evil and/or Soulless Sam has great hair. Can we leave his hair soulless? Just a little bit? No? Well that's okay. It's kind of cute in a proto-Lego-hair way.
Photo 47

-"Something I think you oughta see." Yeah, there's quite a bit of time left for this to be wrapping up just yet.
Photo 48

-Wahey! We have a plot-device! Made of human skin! Like all the best plot-devices! Dean is a wise looter. Get the spellbooks too.
Photo 49

-Purgatory, yep, hello back half of the season arc, pleased to meet you.

-"What?" Oh Dean's face. How I've missed it.
Photo 50

-Aw, and here I was thinking dragon man might just be misunderstood. Aaaand no. Opening gates and pitching virgins into Purgatory for fun and profit. Ah well.
Photo 51

-"Mother." Ooo. Ooo. Like, the mom of all the monsters. Whiiiiich according to some lore would be Lilith. Yes, that Lilith. Which could be very interesting.

-The eye-flare was red, not white, so probably not Lilith, but say hello to the big bad for the rest of the season. Mom.
Photo 52

-I don't know if I want to know what they needed the spare virgins for... O.o

proto-Lego-hair yeah!

Now you have me fixated on their ties for the rest of the season. Thank you so much for that. It kinda looked like Dean's second tie use was the tie Sam had on in the first tie scene. Maybe they don't have that many after all.

I really enjoyed this. Love the pictures to go along with the fun commentary.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2011 12:12 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't know what it is about the ties I find fascinating, but yeah. The tie Sam had earlier was an alternating navy/red with thin white stripes, Dean's looks more all dark red with thin white stripes. I do agree they likely share ties though. :-)
monochromatic13 From: monochromatic13 Date: April 8th, 2011 03:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just so you know I am going back to season 1 and re-watching every episode to count all the ties.
Thank you
I have been given an epic quest

Great recap! And yay for all the geek references!

irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: February 5th, 2011 06:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm glad I wasn't the only one who immediately thought, "Lilith?" when Mom arrived! When she "died" to free Lucifer, would she have gone to Purgatory? Or do demons just cease to be when they die? Because if she went to Purgatory and the dragon fella just opened a door to Purgatory...

I didn't realise quite how much I'd missed Soulful!Sam until this ep. And I'm glad they just didn't have Bobby up and trust him again.

But Cas should totally have given him a hug!

I'm glad they didn't drag out the "Dean lying to Sam to protect him" thing for too long. Although I suspect "The Wall" will be dragged on until, oh, I don't know, the season finale maybe...?!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2011 12:15 am (UTC) (Link)
I didn't think demons did, since the majority are already dead and very twisted spirits by the Supernatural rules, but who knows.

Bobby's reaction to Sam was close to ideal, I think. Not outright antagonistic, just wary and not trusting.

charis_kalos From: charis_kalos Date: February 5th, 2011 09:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
I might have missed Sherlock!Sam (with his great hair) but "our" Sam is back - and Dean's joy at getting his geeky, empathetic, moral Sammy back was just adorable.

Yeah, I was thinking "Mother of All" would be Lilith. Unless they really play with the mythology and make it Eve, the only other woman I can think of who could wear that title.

I want a Sam-Cas hug!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2011 12:22 am (UTC) (Link)
I hope they don't make it Eve, she's more Mother of all for humans than for monsters. I am hoping if they haven't brought back Lilith, that they're branching into other cultural bases and bringing in something new.
charis_kalos From: charis_kalos Date: February 6th, 2011 10:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I want her to be Tiamat!!!!!!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2011 10:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, hey, wasn't that wish coin something to do with Tiamat too? That would be awesome!
e313 From: e313 Date: February 5th, 2011 09:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
(here via the newsletter) well, according to ancient Greek mythology there IS a mother of all monsters, Echidna.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2011 12:24 am (UTC) (Link)
Yep, that's another one. I was just thinking they might be taking the opportunity to brink back a prior big bad, but there are a few monster mothers running around in world mythology.
anniehow From: anniehow Date: February 5th, 2011 10:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
"I'm sending Death a damn fruit basket." Judging from Death's eating preferences the previous times you've seen him, he might like it better if you sent him something deep-fried. LOL! That was my EXACT SAME thought!

Wow! That was great that you banged a reaction out so quickly! Go you!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2011 12:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I don't know what happened there. Really if I'm going to keep doing these for the rest of the season I need to get them out fast or I won't have the time or energy.
claudiapriscus From: claudiapriscus Date: February 6th, 2011 02:59 am (UTC) (Link)
Looking at her house again, that professor woman must be a gazillionaire.

Hmm... big lot like that, my head canon is that she lives in Marin. Also, basement. Weird. I don't think I know anyone who has an actual honest-to-god basement. Maybe she actually lives in Pacifica, which is generally more overcast and kind of hillier, and she could have a not-really-a-basement (a garage set into a hill).
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2011 03:39 am (UTC) (Link)
It really is a huge house. I wonder if she's a slightly more responsible variation on Bella as a sideline to the professorship or something.

yay, the CK awesome recaps are back! :D

ARG! can they PLEASE get an evil actress who can ENUNCIATE?! *sigh*

also if they could stop with the fight scenes in the dark so I actually didn't realize there were 2 guys until the first died but there was still a guy? that'd be awesome *more sigh*

so the thing that really made me giggle about Portland? The mention of having leverage :D (Leverage is filmed in Portland :) )

I just about broke squeeing with the 12-sided die reference :D (12-siders don't get enough love!)

the stained glass - do you think it's an art dept window or a real-world window? it looks familiar....
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2011 05:19 am (UTC) (Link)
yay, the CK awesome recaps are back! :D

Not sure how much there will be of them, but I'll do what I can.

ARG! can they PLEASE get an evil actress who can ENUNCIATE?! *sigh*

This one hasn't had much of a chance to talk yet.

also if they could stop with the fight scenes in the dark so I actually didn't realize there were 2 guys until the first died but there was still a guy? that'd be awesome *more sigh*

That's another thing I love about Macs. The display is by default brighter so it's a bit easier to see in the dark scenes. Still pretty dark in spots though.

so the thing that really made me giggle about Portland? The mention of having leverage :D (Leverage is filmed in Portland :) )

I thought that word seemed a little deliberate in delivery. :-)

I just about broke squeeing with the 12-sided die reference :D (12-siders don't get enough love!)

There aren't a lot of things that use a d12, as I recall, so they don;t get the same level of exposure as d20's d10's and d8's.

the stained glass - do you think it's an art dept window or a real-world window? it looks familiar....

Fairly certain it's a lower mainland location window, I think it was used in Smallville before, and possibly an earlier SPN episode.

How I've missed and still adore your picture reviews! What a fun and wonderful way to revisit a totally rockin' episode. Thank you!!!

Glad you like them. :-)

I really must stop watching things late at night in the dark and chortling to myself--I shall wake someone up besides Keisa..lol Pulling sword just, oh hells bells lmao. Anyway, I immediately thought human skin when I saw the book, but I make disturbing references that way:P I was wondering if that was Lilith too, then thought about other mythology, and now if you need me I will be buried happily under the pile of books in my room;) Oh yes the expressions and geek references kick so much ass. I am going to sleep now, honest.

I loooove your ability to screen cap, you are brilliant, but I tell you that constantly.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2011 07:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
The capping isn't that special, it's just a screen capture shareware thing.

Yes, well, it is magic to me, and your comments make it more so. I stand by the comment;)

-"You really don't remember-"/"Let's be glad!" DON'T. SCRATCH. THE WALL. Geez, Bobby!

I understand Bobby's reaction to Sam, but I must admit I found him to be kinda an idjit in being so obvious to Sam that he DID have a problem with him. Dean's right on one front: they have no idea how sturdy that wall is in Sam's mind.

I found the St Mary's shoutout to be funny, because we do have a St. Mary's something or other in the area here. Not directly in Portland, but in Beaverton -- which is the west side/Portland metro. I also got a squee out of the Marketplace signage, because that is downtown PDX. Yay for the local references! Although I had no idea our sewage system came with possible stashed treasure.

Hello our new Big Bad. I couldn't help thinking back to Mary Mary, Quite contrary, How does your garden grow.... I referenced that back in 4.03 but I'm thinking it may prove to be still relevent with the new matriarchial mythology. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 7th, 2011 02:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Bobby isn't a terribly subtle guy, no. XD

Cool that there were those local references too. I'm always amazed by TV sewer system architecture. All those archways and things. Locally if someone wants to get into the sewer they have to dig up the street and take out the 3 foot wide pipes.
