Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 6.21
Contains profanity, capslock and speculation...

...and more about H.P. Lovecraft than you ever wanted to know.

Spoiler and Theory Summary

NOOOOOOOTHING. The only thing I have heard is that this is in fact a stand-alone episode, rather than the first half of a two-parter. Darn, but I guess they didn't get word of the schedule switch up until well after everything was written etc.

Thanks you everyone for being conscientious about hiding spoilery stuff! \o/

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 6.21 - ??? Let It Bleed.

Here we go!

-Had to check the THEN in case of montage. HI LISA! HI BEN! Do you have any idea how doomed you two probably are? *skips the remainder*

-March 15, 1937. Providence, Rhode Island. Typewriter. ... ....... no... no way. *googles to confirm* That's the date of- Really??? O.O
Photo 1

-...He does look a bit like... no way. Seriously?
Photo 2

-Well, whoever this guy is he's rivaling Chuck for drinking and... oh CRAP. If this guy is who I think he is and he's a PROPHET? THE WORLD IS TOTALLY FUCKED. But it can't be him, can it? If this guy is the person I think he is, how the hell did Supernatural get the estate's lawyers to agree??
Photo 3

-Also armed. Don't know how good his aim will be with the current level of inebriation, though.
Photo 4

-Gaah, shadowy whispery guy breaking through the window and- *squints really hard at the title page*
Photo 5


-*leaves the episode on pause and gets a glass of water* Well. I think that might be the fastest the show has ever completely blown my mind. Two minutes in and I'm incoherent. And half of those two minutes was "THEN". Holy crap.

-SERIOUSLY, THE LAST THING THE WINCHESTERS NEED RIGHT NOW IS CTHULHU AND THE ELDER GODS!!! Lovecraft. I was totally destined to watch this show. Holy crap. Lovecraft. You guys. OMG. I guess I better see what they're going to do to him. Nothing good, since March 15, 1937 is the date of his death (from something perfectly normal and not getting his face sucked off by a dark shadowy something.)

-On second thought, since I have plans that require me to be not chained to my desk with my brain dribbling out my ears on Saturday, I'm leaving this on pause for 24 hours. Also need processing time. Two minutes into the episode.

-That was a very enjoyable day. Okay, now, where was I? Oh yes. Getting my brain melted.

-While re-cuing the episode, I noticed something about the dark shadowy something. In the soundtrack when it appears, there are angel whispers. It could be an angel. If Show is having Lovecraft be a prophet? Maybe this is his archangel. Because what do you do with a prophet who just wrote "The End"? Or he's just Lovecraft. Either way, dark shadowy thing is an angel. ...I wonder if they're implying that the angels have been Chthonic entities all along, or whether Lovecraft and bunch opened the gate and let Cthulhu et al in in 1937?

-Oh and ciaranbochna, while I'm thinking of it, there's a good chance your yet unwritten but extensively noted auction story could get Kripked here... O.o

-Also while re-cuing, "We didn't know." SO, in SPN 'verse, Robert Bloch, Clark Ashton Smith and August Derleth need to duck and cover, PDQ.

-Seriously, I am getting back to the episode, but from the Wiki page on Lovecraft: "Much of Lovecraft's work was directly inspired by his night terrors". Rather like Chuck and his dreams. At this point if Show hasn't made Lovecraft a prophet I'll be shocked. History and biographical data is supplying backstory already.

-I am so glad this is a long weekend for me.

-"Haunter of the Dark" was indeed one of Lovecraft's last published stories, a five page short story published in Weird Tales in 1935 (the date's off, but oh well, he's probably behind a couple years due to SAN loss *handwaves*) and *SPOILERS FOR THE LOVECRAFT STORY* kills off the author-insert character (although it's the author-insert for Robert Bloch that was killed of in this one This bunch used to write each other into stories in retribution for another author writing them into stories and driving their insert characters crazy or evil or whatnot, etc. I really wish there were conventions back then, because this bunch of writers as guests would have gotten up to SO MUCH TROUBLE at a con.) *SPOILER END* SERIOUSLY, IF LOVECRAFT ISN'T A PROPHET HERE, SHOW WILL HAVE MISSED A HUGE BUILT-IN OPPORTUNITY. O.O

(Incidentally, nice job on the blood, effects department!)

-And now we have the title screen. Brain, what brain?

-Title: Let it Bleed. Oh my.

-Castiel stole a book from Bobby's library? There's a sign of someone going dark side if there ever was one. Though if the angel-proofing wasn't working, any angel could've bounced in and snagged it.

-"Hi, glad to meet ya. Bobby Singer, paranoid bastard." *grins all over everything*
Photo 7

-"Went to talk to Howard Phillips about the events of March 10th." Hehehe. Howard Phillips. H. P. God I'm going to be an annoying Cthulhugeek tonight, and I'm not as up on the lore as I should be.

-"At the Mountains of Madness? The Call of Cthulhu?" *flails around giggling* I used to play Call of Cthulhu twice a month not too many years ago. Psycho death cults and plants with tentacles and things called Jeremy that lived in abandoned wells.... good times.

-"Naw, I was too busy having sex with women." *headshake* Dean. Silly. You can do that and read books too. Though not at the same time, since most women would be a little annoyed.

Photo 8

-Oh crap. Ben and Lisa showing up this close to the end does not bode well for them. At all.
Photo 9

-Written by Sera Gamble. Ohhhhh, lordy. Duck and cover!

-Ah! This must be the guy Lisa was going on a date with several episodes back. I've forgotten everything about him except that he had some kind of 'respectable' job. Him showing up this close to the finale doesn't bode well for his lifespan or sanity. Unless he's secretly evil and keeping an eye on Dean's alternate weak spot, which is also a possibility at this stage of things.
Photo 10

-Directed by John F. Showalter. Getting to be a familiar name.

-Aaaand here comes the imminent doom, right on time.
Photo 11

-Crunch. Well. He didn't even last as long as I thought he might. Unless something re-animates him later. O.o
Photo 12

-At this point, Ben's pretty much got to either become a hunter, or get a whole lot of therapy.
Photo 13

-Ben calls Dean. Of course. (What's 911 gonna do?) And Dean's several states away and can't do a damned thing. Of course. Yeah, that's a pretty hard situation, given you're on the outs with your only source of instantaneous transport.
Photo 14
Photo 15

-BTW, Emergency monster analysis over the phone is much yay! \o/ If the monsters get to be a wide-spread known problem, they could set up like a poison control center for monster attacks, with volunteers and flow-charts. "Is it corporeal or non corporeal? ...it means solid. Solid. Okay, looks human, doesn't look human? ...Looks human. What colour are its eyes?" et cetera.

-Yeaaaah. Hi Crowley. Crowley uses tactics and strategy. Of course he's going to snag the non-combatants to get the heroes' attention. Particularly since his dumbass angelic partner in crime has very specifically declared the Winchesters off-limits, but not their associates, and Lisa and Ben are a hell of a lot less defended than Bobby.
Photo 16

-This is Dean's 'I'mma kill you' face.
Photo 17

-"Your chocolate's been in my peanut butter for far too long." BWAH. Crowley, for all your double and triple entendre needs. Also product placement.
Photo 18

-"Got it? Splendid. Kisses!" I LOVE CROWLEY! He's so much fun as an adversary character, AND he uses logical tactics. And he makes Dean give death glares like this:
Photo 19

Followed by pain:
Photo 20
Photo 21

I'm glad he's not dead. Can we keep him? Please??

Photo 22

-...hey, wait, Bobby's going to investigate Lovecraft solo, and he's not on Castiel's no-harm list... OH CRAP YOU GUYS, BOBBY'S GONNA DIE!!! O.O

-Did- *looks again* No, no, they didn't draw the summoning stuff and set the brazier on the hood of the Impala. Phew! I was gonna hafta kick somebody's ass! O.o
Photo 23
Photo 24
Photo 25

-I doubt after last episode they're calling Castiel without a circle of flaming oil handy, so... Balthazar? Which is not going to help much at all, is it. Really, if they summoned Castiel and told him Crowley took Lisa and Ben, that would solve just about all their problems, since Castiel would go up one side of Crowley and down the other, break everything off and work on resetting things. But that would be far too easy.

-Yep. Hi Balthazar. Balthazar and Crowley need to stay. Just don't put them together in the same room or they will snark each other to death. *nods*

-"Well yes, yes of course he did!" Hehe, yeah. Not so much. Considering what the last 'trusted Lieutenant' tried to do, I'm not surprised he'd keep Balthazar out of the loop. Balthazar's doing well at providing a united front in front of the morals, though. Hm.
Photo 26

-Heeeee, Sam's 'oh he did, did he?' face. XD
Photo 27

-"We're not calling Cas!" Seriously, Winchester communication skills and practices are half of what is screwing them over. TALK TO EACH OTHER!!! *headdesk*
Photo 28

-FANBOY TO THE RESCUE!!! Hee! I want his lamp. And half the stuff on his walls. What, no plush Cthulhu? Aw.
Photo 29
Photo 30
Photo 31

-"I'm in a long-term online relationship, so..." Heheheh. I think he wants you to flirt a little harder, Bobby.
Photo 32
Photo 33
Photo 34

-"Looks like Columbo, talks like Rainman?" Ah, so Castiel did steal the book from Bobby's. Yep. Collaborate with the king of Hell and next thing you know you're stealing books from Bobby Singer's library. Slippery slope. *headshake*

-This is a visually interesting shot that I'm not sure what to make of at this point, but I'm capping anyway.
Photo 35

-"If by friends you mean co-worshippers in a black magic cult." Bwah! Yeah, in SPN-Verse where magic is active and somewhat plentiful, Lovecraft and the rest would have been playing with fire.

-"To see what's out there! Maybe its friendly-"/"It's never friendly!" Heeeee! Seriously, the stuff Lovecraft wrote in no way jives with 'maybe it's friendly', more like, 'maybe it'll eat us really fast and it'll be painless'. (For cartoonified examples, see here at Unspeakable Vault.)
Photo 36

-"...and they were..." Castiel, you kleptomaniac. You could have at least just taken them to a copy place and then poofed them right back.
Photo 37
Photo 38
Photo 39

-Hey! It's the tiger from Andy's van! And also a motivator I'd really like to see more clearly.
Photo 40

-Bobby called Lovecraft an idjit. Heeheeheee! And well he should. Never open a dimensional gate bigger than your head. Also everyone dead or disappeared inside a year. Doesn't bode well for Bloch, Smith and Derleth, that.
Photo 41

-"Same place he's been since the big night. Locked in a mental ward." Yeah, at nine you don't have a whole lot of Sanity points to lose.

-Bobbymobiiiile! Sorry, I'm strangely obsessed. She looks so shiny in the rain. *pats*
Photo 42

-Oh, hey, I just had a random thought. Trenchcoat and weird speech pattern could also be Virgil, maybe? Raphael's assassin guy? Though he's less of a 'talk to the fanboy and steal his stuff' operative and more of a 'steal all the stuff and to hell with the fanboy' operative. He could be a sort of dark and grim Columbo? Maybe? No? Sigh.

-Hi. I'm Dean Winchester. I trained for 30 subjective years under the head torturer in Hell. Your boss has my ex-girlfriend and her kid. Prepare to experience pain.
Photo 43
Photo 44

-"Lisa and Ben, wherever they are, that's a hundred percent on me." Oh Dean. True, I guess, but they wouldn't be alive at all if not for you and Sam, so... yeah. Oh Dean.
Photo 45
Photo 46

-Also, given the finale countdown clock has got to be ticking down on Sam's mental hell wall, I'd keep him as far away from demons as possible. 'Cause they'll poke it.

-"Castiel, it's Sam." *chokes on drink* DUDE! HOLY CRAP! VOLUNTARY COMMUNICATION ATTEMPT! OMG. If this doesn't work, Sam, Dean will fry you! O.O
Photo 47

-"I am begging you. Do you understand?" Oh Saaaaam!
Photo 48

-Oh my god. I may never get used to Castiel having a stealth mode. Still, communication has been achieved, even if it's one way.
Photo 49

-"I'm merely exploiting the obvious loophole." Of course, because he used to be head Crossroads demon and screwing people with semantics is what he does. Castiel, you dumbass.
Photo 50

-"You are not to harm them, do you understand me?" Castiel needs to snarl more commands. Yeah. *nods*
Photo 51

-Oh crap, incoming message from the big giant head angel radio. It's been a while. O.O
Photo 52

-"Are you in flagrante with the King of Hades?" *snerk* Technically no. But by the source meaning of 'actively committing an offense' well, yeah.

-*sigh* I love living in BC. Not all the parks feature bickering angels, but they're pretty anyway.
Photo 53

-"And I can only assume that you'd be the vessel, correct?" Waaaait, what? Vessel for what? God? God's got Chuck. What?

-"Suck up all the souls into yourself, suck up all that power." ...ooo. Kind of gross when you think about him horking half back up to give to Crowley, like a momma bird barfing up dinner for the baby birds, but ooo. That's... ooo.
Photo 54

-"In which case, you explode, taking a substantial chunk of the planet along with you." WELL! Um. Yeah. Yipe? O.O

-"In for a penny, in for a pound." You know, I don't believe him at all. A liiiiittle too smirky there. Also the music is all horns of impending doom.
Photo 55

-I don't know why, but I love that Bobby addresses the old guy as 'sir'. Make me see him as a little boy in the fifties, brought up to be respectful and stuff before everything went to hell. Aw, Bobby.
Photo 56

-"Do you you believe in monsters?" Ehehehehehe. Dude. You have no idea who you're asking.
Photo 57

-I love the moment here, between Bobby and the old guy. Bobby being the first one to actually listen and express condolences at the mother the boy lost. This guy's had a hard, nasty life, in a mental institution, and no one's ever told him, even when he was a kid, that they were sorry he lost his mom. OW SHOW. It's not enough to kill me with the main cast, you have to kill me with the random witnesses too?
Photo 58
Photo 59

-...Crap. Okay. So, his mom got possessed, she could still be kicking around. How many 'old enough to be a mom to a nine-year-old female characters that Bobby would recognize in a 75 year old photo do we have lurking around? Um. Lisa? And Doctor Visyak. And Sheriff Jodie Mills. Hm. If it's Lisa, the possession must be dormant or something, but it would explain her resiliency in the face of weird crap. Sheriff Mills, maybe, but not likely. We know the least about Dr. Visyak... hehe. If my Mary Sue ...hell with it. If my Mary Sue turns out to be infested with some kind of Mythos critter... that would be astoundingly apt, actually. XD
Photo 60
Photo 61

-Yep. Torturer!Dean is back in the saddle again.
Photo 62

-Crap. Bound to happen, wandering in and out of the trap like that. But crap.
Photo 63

-Dean's getting thrown across rooms into walls vans and getting choked! What day is it?
Photo 64

Photo 65
Photo 66
Photo 67
Photo 68

-"I don't believe a word that's coming out of your mouth." Or at least try to communicate. *headdesk*
Photo 69
Photo 70

-"I thought you said that we were like family. Well I think that too." Oh, god, it's 'give me heartfelt declarations of brotherly schmoop and then use them to beat my heart to death' time again, isn't it?
Photo 71
Photo 72

-"I always come when you call." Oh god, the voice breaking just a little gaaaaah.
Photo 73

-"Has anyone but your closest kin ever done more for you?" GAAAAH. JUST TELL HIM WHY YOU THOUGHT WORKING WITH CROWLEY WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA! THAT YOU'RE TRYING TO PREVENT RAPHAEL FROM REBOOTING THE APOCALYPSE! YOU DIPSTICK! I want to shake some sense into an angel right now. Just grab him by the lapels and shake. ARG. *facepalm*

-Very bad sudden thought. Very very bad. Vessel. Castiel needs a really strong vessel he can haul all the Purgatory souls in. And Dean was made to be Michael's vessel. Ohhhhh crap. No. No no no. Castiel's not that much of... an idiot... oh god. Never mind. CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAP. O.O

-"Stand behind me." GAAAAAH. I don't even know anymore. He might be desperate enough to be that stupid, but... arg. It's just a thought. It's not actually happening. Yet. Stop thinking about it. ARG. O.O Here. Woobie!angel. Innocent, hurt, moronic, woobie!angel. I WANT TO TRUST HIM!!! I WANT DEAN TO TRUST HIM!!! BUT... ARG!!!
Photo 74

-'That's what Crowley said.' *headdesk* TALK TO EACH OTHER!!! Crap.
Photo 75
Photo 76

-Hey, it's the Dead in the Water cabin, isn't it? (Also the Devour cabin, the cabin that showed up a few times on X-Files, possibly Samuel Colt's cabin... the one near Buntzen Lake.)
Photo 77

-Yep. Dr. Eleanor Visyak, of the 'possessed by something non-Euclidian in 1937' Eleanors, and who nearly had me fooled into thinking she was someone unfamiliar by having a different hairstyle and a lack of pronounced cleavage. Tricky tricky.
Photo 78

-"I know what you are, Ellie." Some people think their exes are soul-sucking creatures of evil, but in this case... I don't know that she might not be... not-evil though. Maybe.
Photo 79

-"Just slightly... 900 years." Hee! She's the same age as the current Doctor. There's a crossover waiting to happen. She could be the Rani. Or Romana. And Purgatory could be the Time War. And no, I have to many things to write already. No. Arg.

-"You're from freaking Purgatory, you never thought to mention that the whole time you slept with me?" Hmmm... *blink* Sorry. Drifted a little No idea what came over me there... <.<

-Really, if she'd had any plans to do anything evil, she would have done it by now.

-"Why do you think I gave Dean the sword?" EXACTLY! *high-fives Dr. Visyak*
Photo 80

-"At least let me take you somewhere, protect you." Hmmm... sorry, sorry, I keep zoning out, no idea why... >.>
Photo 81
Photo 82

-I will say, I am pleased with my choice of surrogate Mary-Sue. *beams*

-"I'm officially on your team... you bastards." Oh dear. Okay... So... is he going against Castiel by doing this or is he here because Cas wants him to be? Where are the sides???
Photo 83
Photo 84

-"He seems awfully sure of himself for a man who wants to swallow a million nuclear reactors." Yes, well, he's a bit of an idiot at the moment. He'll get over it. Or die. Arg.

-Okay. Call me paranoid, but if the angel who just showed up saying "Hi! I'm your buddy now! I know where your friends are! I can take you there, but I can't help you myself, so I'll be abandoning you there!" offers a free teleport anywhere? Hell no. We're driving, and he's drawing a tactical map. But yeah. Everyone's got their moment of shining idiot tonight, it seems.
Photo 85

-And... are they splitting up to look around the fortified abandoned trap warehouse? Seriously? After taking out only one guard? Idiots.
Photo 86

-Yup. Idiots.
Photo 87

-Hi Ben and Lisa, looking relatively unharmed at the moment. Now if I were Crowley, and I'm not, I'd have one or both of them possessed by a minion demon, just as a backup. And to force Dean to try to remember his latin.
Photo 88

-Stealth. Dean does not have it.
Photo 89

-He does however have a few extra levels in badass, which is even better.
Photo 90

-HAHAHA! And hi there possessed!Lisa! Apparently either I think like Crowley or Crowley thinks like me. I'm not sure which is more disturbing.
Photo 91

-Cindy Sampson does do evil very well. *nods*
Photo 92

-"I was just gonna tell him that your his real Daddy." Hahahahaahah! Oh my god. Conversations you should have had with people before you got possessed by a demon. BWAH!
Photo 93
Photo 94

-"Just kidding." HA!!! I do believe the writers just trolled the audience there. XD

-"Says the C-minus lay with ten miles of daddy issues. Whatever gets you through the night, Tiny Tim." Can we keep her demon? I miss snarky demons. Speaking of which, where the heck is Meg? ...Is this Meg? Ooo.

-Yay, Holy Water! Never leave home the hotel room the wrecking yard without it!

Photo 95

-Oh, crap!
Photo 96
Photo 97
Photo 98
Photo 99

-"Exorcise me now." Well. It's a survivable wound, if you can get her to a hospital right away, or, I dunno, if Balthazar can be talked into a bit of healing. Evil does suit her though...
Photo 100

-And of course he'll finish the exorcism. With a glance at Ben. Because SERA GAMBLE WROTE THIS EPISODE AND LIKES TO TEAR PEOPLE'S HEARTS OUT. Oh Dean. Oh everybody.
Photo 101
Photo 102
Photo 103


-Yes. Sam. You know. Sam. With the wall in his head keeping Hell out. Who you brought. To a pretty obvious trap. Full of DEMONS. And is currently looking far too undisturbed and calm for my paranoia.
Photo 104

-'Get the salt gun and shoot anything coming at us, and get the knife too.' Sadly, being gentle and sensitive isn't really an option in the situation. Also, not likely anything Dean's had much experience with. That smack will have some repercussions, though. If everyone survives. Lisa's probably a goner, and Ben's fifty-fifty at this point. There's at least ten minutes left in the episode, Crowley is probably going to show up, or Sam's going to have been severely tampered with and go off all over everything.
Photo 105

-Dude! Awesome for a first shot. Salt's not gonna keep him down for long though, so running would be good.
Photo 106
Photo 107
Photo 108
Photo 109
Photo 110
Photo 111

-Sam's hollering, that's a good sign... maybe... Why would they take him and lock him alone in a room... did they mess with his hell wall? Or... oh, hey. Monster eggs. I... I don't really want to think too loud about that. O.O

-Well, whatever happened to Sam, it seriously improved his capacity to steal situationally-appropriate vehicles. Four door, lots of room, could even lay Lisa flat in the back of it if need be. Might he be soulless again? *worries*
Photo 112

-Oh Dean. And Ben. And everybody. There's still a lot of progress bar left. Someone's screwed.
Photo 113

-You know, getting someone in a hospital is not always a good thing on this show.
Photo 114
Photo 115
Photo 116

-"Ben I'm sorry." And Ben leaves. Yeah. The bloom is off your rose there, Dean. (Hush, paranoia, Ben isn't possessed. Maybe.)

-Hi Cas! Good time for a visit, somewhere where Dean can't yell too loud or he'll get kicked out of the hospital.
Photo 117
Photo 118

-"She'll be dead by midnight." Well crap. Too bad you don't have an ANGEL IN THE ROOM WHO REALLY WANTS TO BE FRIENDS OR SOMETHING. Gahhh.

-Yeah. Like that. Jeez, Dean, it's a good thing I like you or I'd be really vexed at you for being a bit of a total moron.
Photo 119

-"Thank you. I wish this changed anything." *headdesk* God damn it. Dean, get your head out of your ass. Castiel, tell him why you hooked up with Crowley. Both of you go find out what's happened to Sam and then EVERYBODY HUG BEFORE I START KICKING BUTTS AROUND HERE! Gaaaaah!
Photo 120
Photo 121

-"There's one more thing you could do for me." Oh. Really.
Photo 122
Photo 123

-"We were in a car crash." Did he have Castiel mind-wipe them? Like, not just of the night, but all their memories of him and monsters and whatnot? Because, um... that won't keep them from being targets. It's Dean's feelings for them that make them vulnerable, not their memories and feeling for him. Also, that's a heck of a lot to wipe from a memory. There's going to be an entire year of swiss cheese for one. O.o
Photo 124

-Yep, he did. Wow. There are going to be some really awkward and confusing conversations when they get home.... starting I guess with "Ma'am, where have you been and why is your boyfriend dead of a broken neck in the middle of your living room?"
Photo 125
Photo 126

-"You take care of your mom." Oh Dean. And another altered Family theme on the soundtrack, I think, goddamnit!!
Photo 127
Photo 128
Photo 129
Photo 130
Photo 131

-"Well?"/"Well nothin'." Okay, this should suffice as a test to see if Sam is soulless.
Photo 132

-"You ever mention Lisa or Ben to me again I will break your nose." Well there we are then.

-Well. Crap. Yeah. Leave the house with the angel-proofing, the angel's gonna find you. Oh this could really hurt.
Photo 133

...in the next episode. WHICH I DON'T HAVE TIME TO WATCH YET, ARG!!! Hoping to get to it sometime over the next week, but I won't be checking comments on this until after I've seen it, because with the two episodes airing back to back, it's inevitable some plot points are going to get swapped around in people's memories. Comment away, try to avoid talking about 6.22, and I'll get back to you all when I'm on the other side of the finale!

Now I have to see if LJ is going to talk to my uploader, or if I'm gonna hafta upload all 133 of these things individually.

Yay, it worked! \o/

-Oh crap, incoming message from the big giant head angel radio. It's been a while. O.O

This, just made me laugh, real loud. Lol. I'll comment once you've watched the last episode, because really... spoilers!

Thank you for your consideration. I won't be able to watch it until next weekend. D-:

You expected Lisa or Ben to be possessed?!

Your ability to predict that disturbs me greatly because it indicates you are capable of that level of evil trickery! Eeep!

And yes, if Dean and Cas WOULD JUST F***ING TALK TO EACH OTHER!!!!

Can't wait for your recap/reactions to the finale!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 25th, 2011 07:22 am (UTC) (Link)
I totally expected Lisa or Ben to be possessed, but I run role-playing games now and then and am an evil gamemaster. There's always a backup plan, and Dean got through the guards way too easy for it not to be a second layer trap.

I won't be able to watch 6.22 until the weekend, fair warning.
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: May 24th, 2011 05:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
I couldn't believe it when you mentioned HP Lovecraft last week because one of the few spoilers I'd read was him being mentioned in the blurb for this episode!! You really are psychic!!!

I'm glad I wasn't the only one getting reeeeeally frustrated with Cas not telling Dean Raphael wanted to reboot the Apocalypse.

And no, Dean eliminating himself from Lisa and Ben's memories won't really protect them at all - they'll be just like Adam. Innocent and at risk. But I suppose he was trying to eliminate the horror that they'd experienced because of him. Silly boy. I agree though, Cindy was fantastic as Demon!Lisa!!

Looking forward to what you make of the finale. Your blanket, I suspect, will be shredded.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 25th, 2011 07:24 am (UTC) (Link)
In all honesty I'm surprised I haven't mentioned Lovecraft more often. I guess the Judeo-Christian lore base threw me off a bit.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one getting reeeeeally frustrated with Cas not telling Dean Raphael wanted to reboot the Apocalypse.

Seems to be a common sentiment.

I won't be able to watch the finale until the weekend, so it'll be a while yet.

I desperately wanted to have a tiny camera in your house to cap your reaction to Lovecraft--and I told Wombat as much;) But I wouldn't do it..lol

My psyche has not recovered from anything, nor will it in the immediate future. I heartily agree with you on Bobby and the old guy's conversation, just stunningly perfect.

There needs to be some heads knocked together...hells bells boys (and I include Cas in there obviously):P

Hee! It was a slower reaction since they dribbled the clues in gradually, but yeah, I had to stop as soon as I knew who it was since I wanted to have some SAN points left when Wombat showed up to visit. XD

There seems to be a large consensus on head knocking.

(I'm not going to be able to watch 6.22 until this weekend, arg)

The writers had to make one of them ignorant of Lovecraft for the necessary exposition specially for people like me. When the camera zoomed in on the book title in the teaser, the husband and I looked at each other, shrugged, and said "They'll explain it later."

Can't wait for your recap/squee-view of 6.22! :D

Yep, someone had to be the exposition target, and with two 'book' people and one 'non-book' person, Dean had to be it.

It's going to be a while to wait yet, I can't watch it until the weekend. :-/

OMG I have sooo many issues with the memory wiping. Seriously. There will be fic, if I ever get around to writing it.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 25th, 2011 07:33 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh absolutely. At best its an ineffective band-aid at worst were either of them asked if that's what they wanted?

(6.22 is on hold until the weekend. Arg)

Of course not! Dean doesn't ask, he just assumes he knows what's best for everyone!

Dean, you're an idiot! Cas, you're an idiot! Sam and Bobby are the only ones I'm speaking to right now.

With Lovecraft in the mix, I couldn't not have a Thickets song on.

(6.22 is on hold until the weekend, so hang on to your spoilers.)

They should have had a Thickets song in the episode.

I'm hanging on to the spoilers! The comment above refers entirely to my feelings at the end of 6x21. I was VERY UPSET about the mindwipe, and the general lack of communication. I love them all, but sometimes they're idiots.

Also, having Lovecraft be a prophet would have been awesome, though I liked what they did with him.

Also again, I kind of want to read the story where Dr. Visyak is The Rani :)

Just for the record, Cas did tell Dean that this is all about Raphael wanting to re-start the Apocalypse. I'm pretty sure it was in his first appearance. Dean just doesn't think dealing with Crowley to open Purgatory is an acceptable way to win. Since Balthazar did give Cas ALL of heaven's weapons and he admits that he has followers (I got the impression that heaven is pretty evenly split), Dean may well have a point. Especially now that he and we know that Cas absorbing all that power could kill half the planet (according to Balthazar) and restarting the Apocalypse could kill half the planet (according to last season), so right now Cas's plan is a wash as far as destruction of human life is concerned.

Dean does tend to get judgey when friends and family work with demons, so he is following his character here. He basically said the same thing in Levee to Sam about working with Ruby.

Yeah, Dean's got a short memory for plot sometimes though. You do have a good point about working with demons.

Your geek-out glee is so adorkable! *twirls you*

-"Thank you. I wish this changed anything." *headdesk* God damn it. Dean, get your head out of your ass. Castiel, tell him why you hooked up with Crowley. Both of you go find out what's happened to Sam and then EVERYBODY HUG BEFORE I START KICKING BUTTS AROUND HERE! Gaaaaah!

YES!!! EVERYONE SHOULD HUG IT OUT!!! Castiel would feel reassured that he hasn't broken things irrevokably with Dean, Dean would feel reassurred that Castiel ... well... actually, that's the problem. Dean *knows* Cas believes he is acting for the best -- he's seen that road traveled by Sam already with Ruby. Sam didn't listen worth a damn then, and... argh1!! Road to hell, all over again. Talking wouldn't change anything after all, I feel. Back to hugging things out as a solution. Yup. *nods firmly*
