Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 7.01
After several unpleasant interruptions for Real Life, I've finally watched it, so here's a reaction picspam!

Contains rather a lot of profanity, capslock, direct quotes and at times intense speculation.

Spoiler and Theory Summary

I posted a batch of half-cracked theories for this season here. Please note it's location for later pointing and laughing purposes.

I stopped keeping track of the spoilers and rumours I've heard in hopes that my memory would let them go, and really, I haven't heard a lot for this season. I do know Death is coming back, which I'd be stunned if he didn't because Dean has seriously dropped the ball on this soul investigation thing he's supposed to be doing. I like Death, I hope he keeps coming back.

I've also noticed the [POSSIBLY STILL SPOILERY TO COMPLETE SPOILER-HERMITS SO SKIP THIS PARAGRAPH IF THAT APPLIES TO YOU] impossible to avoid great wailings and gnashings that Misha's got a reduced number of episodes this year, but that's to be expected. Whether he is or isn't capital-G God, he's a now deity-level character in a hero-level party. He'll need to retire the character at that point, or lose a few levels to rebalance and rejoin the party. Also that whole 'you're not my family, bow down and bring me pudding' stuff isn't exactly a warm, friendly attitude conducive to wanting to hang out. Also also, he's trying to take over a really huge new job. One way or another, he's gonna be busy for a while. [ALL CLEAR]

Let's see, anything else I remember hearing offhand before watching the episode... noop. If I remember anything else while watching I'll add it after this point.

You guys. Season Seven. Holy crap. O.o




Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 7.01 - Something about a boss..? "Meet the New Boss"

Note to self: VCR's need a cassette in them to record. Oops.

Right where exactly where we? *skims last reaction post* Ah yes. Thoroughly fucked. Ooooo, is there a montage? Is there a montage???


-YEEEEEEZZZZ!!! MONTAGE!!! "Slow Ride" by Foghat. \o/
Photo 1

-Hi Death! Glad you're coming back, you're awesome!

-Ha! The sound de-synched a bit over one of Castiel's bits in the montage, and it was like a brief clip of a badly-dubbed martial arts movie. Now I kind of want Ninja-action Castiel. Maybe if he gets bored of this God business he'll join a dojo?

-CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR!!! D-:

-Heh. Hadn't noticed the very apt sign on the wall behind Castiel when he flexes his... soul energy hoody-hoo whatsis. "EMERGENCY" Yes. If your friend eats an entire dimension of monster-souls and then starts glowing, it's an emergency.
Photo 2

-NOW! I need a drink for this I think. What's the odd patterny stuff behind the NOW and ROAD SO FAR screens? I suppose it relates to the new title card, which will be coming up as soon as things get a bit more complicated. Ooooo. And drippy black stuff too. Ooo...
Photo 3

-Yup. As I said. Fucked.
Photo 4

-"Is this good, or do you want the whole 'forehead to the carpet' thing?" I can see the wisdom in Bobby's action. If something says it's a god of any sort and you don't know how to make it stop or go away, you keep it happy so you can live and go figure out how to stop it or make it go away another day.
Photo 5

-"Stop. What's the point if you don't mean it?" Weeeeeelll, if you want them to mean it, you could try not threatening them with imminent destruction if they disobeyed? Just a thought.

-"Sam, you have nothing to say to me. You stabbed me in the back." Yeah, but look at the puppy faaaaaace! And it's not like you didn't shrug it off like a mosquito bite anyway, and seriously, you are being a really scary bastard right now Cas, and also, you kind of broke Sam earlier by removing that hell wall thing, so really, he can't be expected to be thinking too rationally anyway, and look at the puppy faaaaaaaaace!
Photo 6

-"The Castiel you knew is gone." No he's not, he's just full of monsters. *wibble*
Photo 7

-"Once you were my favourite pets, before you turned and bit me." Heeeeehehehehehe. Yep. Pain in the ass demanding pets that keep having messes that need cleaning up and never say thank you. Totally apt. *nods*

-"Not doing so well, are you, Sam?" Gah, he's so good at being creepy!

-"I hope for your sake this is the last you see me." Oooo. What part of that was the noise he makes disappearing and what part was just soundtrack? Sort of a windy-watery-whooshy noise with a bit of didgeridoo the combination of which totally doesn't sound at all like a really high-priced toilet. Not one bit. *snickers*
Photo 8
Photo 9

-"Sam, you okay?" Um, no, genius. What part of 'busted Hell wall' didn't you get? Though really, in Dean's defense, as I said at the end of last season, Sam is conscious, standing and wielding weapons, which is usually considered good enough to go for a Winchester. But no, not really.
Photo 10
Photo 11

-Owwwww! Glass in hand ow, ow, ow. *shakes hand sympathetically* Oh crap. And that's not just any glass, is it? It's glass in Crowley's lab. Most likely glass from the empty jar of 'open up the gates of Purgatory and chow on down' blood. Ooooooo. [Spec warning for the Spec-phobes]Given Sam's prior experiences with altered blood in his system... OOooooooooo.... *ponders*[Warning clear]
Photo 12

-"I am your Father now." Trying so hard not to think of Darth Vader there. So hard. *snerk*
Photo 13

-"Or this will be your fate." I'm guessing that's one of Raphael's inner circle, but I'm not placing the face. Very dead, whoever he is.
Photo 14

-GASP. No, literally, GASP. Oh Cas. This is not a good personnel management technique. D-:
Photo 15
Photo 16

-"It is a new day, on Earth and in Heaven. Rejoice." 'It's a brand new day, and the sun is high, all the angels sing, because you're gonna die!' Sorry, Dr. Horrible moment there. *crosses fingers that someone else has the same thought and vids that* Aaaaanyway, GAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! HOW SO CREEPY??? O.O
Photo 17

-New Title card! Kind of a big ichor splat, eh? Or a rather violent Rorschach test. Cool!
Photo 18
Photo 19

-Or, um. Since monsters tend to leak ichor, I think, and Castiel's full of monster souls, I really hope that's not what's in store for Cas. Creepy, scary, well-meaning psycho that he is now, I have to believe he can be turned around and brought back, or something. Just cause.

-CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR!! O.O
Photo 20

-Hello, title: "Meet the New Boss" which is the second to last line from "Won't Get Fooled Again" by the Who. Aside from being a stunningly appropriate and interesting song choice that I hope people with more brains than me are going to write song meta about, the line that immediately follows that line is "Same as the old boss." Oh dear. Castiel's going to take up heavy drinking and write pulp horror novels! Don't do it Cas! D-:

-*whimpers* Caaaaaaaaaar.... O.O
Photo 21

-*blocks guest star names with a finger* Nothing to see here, doo-dee-doo-dee-dooo.

-"Trenchcoat on a tortilla." *snerk* Cas is not on any flatbread. Though that does beg some illustration. XD

-"I don't even know what book to hit for this, Dean." Yeah, there aren't a whole lot of texts on reversing apotheosis attained by monster-soul-binge of an outcast but not quite fallen angel.

-"Well figure it out!" Which nets Dean this well-deserved dirty look from Bobby.
Photo 22

-Dean does do contrite rather well though. With a hint of lens flare!
Photo 23

-"You know what I'm gonna do? I'mma fix this car, because that's what I can do." Yup. When Dean doesn't know what else to do or where else to go, or when there are people that he cares about who are broken, hurting or dead and he can't do a thing to help them, where does he turn? The car. Always and forever the car. *grins all over and is schmoopy* Let's hope it's a bit less traumatic a repair job than the last time though, hmm? Crowbars are for prying, not hitting. Poor Dean.
Photo 24

-"Hey Dean." That was quick. I'm guessing this isn't going to be a long term period of consciousness for Sam though.
Photo 25
Photo 26

-Written by Sera Gamble. Directed by Phil Sgriccia. Oh my. Hang on to something, this could get rough. \o/

-"No use putting a gift horse under a microscope, right?" *snerk* *headdesk* Metaphor frappe a la Dean. Love it.

-Unexpected jingling noises after a major mental trauma are never a good sign. Unless it's December.
Photo 27

-Ohhhhhh dear. Is Castiel going to try the direct approach to get followers here? This could be... Um.... yeah. Awkward.
Photo 28

-Picketing? Ohhhhhh, so it's one of those churches. The ones that preach hate and intolerance. Suddenly, I'm much less concerned about whether Cas smites the crap out of this guy or not.

-"And who says you speak for God?" *big grin* Okay, even if this is all Castiel does, show up and get intolerant hate-mongers to stop, I'm suddenly much more okay with him being a deity.
Photo 29

-"And he who lies in my Name shall choke on his own false tongue, and his poisonous words shall betray him." ...and somehow, I'm still not terribly sorry that this guy isn't getting a chance at redemption. At least on Earth.

-Ooo. Message incoming. It's not from the big giant head because for the moment, Cas is the Big Giant Head. This is another reason he needs allies. He needs an admin to field calls while he's busy.
Photo 30

-Um, dude, you might want to poof out of there if you want the parishioners to believe you as God. Staggering around isn't good PR when professing to be the Almighty. Also, incoming voice sounds a bit like Crowley, so.... Hm... He's not really the sort to give warning before attacking... hm...

-AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAAAAA! XD
Photo 31

-Meanwhile in Bobby's basement, Sam is still hearing things. So is it something from Hell, or is it something from the blood concoction? What was that stuff again? Blood of a virgin, blood of a denizen of Purgatory, bunch of other stuff. Aw, he's got the blood of my surrogate Mary Sue in him! That oughta bake his noodle. *nods*
Photo 32

-Oh, didn't Bobby tell you, while you were unconscious he turned the Apocalypse Bunker into a darkroom for photo developing? Hence the red lights? No? Probably because he didn't actually do that. Sorry Sam, your day's about to get really crappy. Yay for saving on the FX budget, too. Switch the light bulbs for red, instant Hell flashback.
Photo 33

-Heeeeeey, the last time we saw Sam in red lighting was when Vamp!Gordon was tracking him, wasn't it? Although that was Gordon's view, so... Not sure where I was going with that, except wouldn't it be cool if with this monster soul and Purgatory and getting cut by a shard of a jar that held Purgatory-portal-opening blood and stuff, Gordon came back briefly? (Not that I'm thinking too hard about the whole 'what is a soul, what is human, what is monster' business right now, because I do not have the brain for it.) Anyway, *looks at red lights suspiciously*

-Just a hallucination. Of course. And it's chains clinking, not bells. Of course. Hell's bells is only a saying, not an actual thing. And an AC/DC song.
Photo 34

-200 religious leaders... okay, maybe that's going a bit overboard. There can't be that many... ah. Ohhhh. I think I caught the implication there. Yeah. Abuse of authority to say the very least. Castiel's cleaning house.

-"He was young. And... and sexy." Pfffftbwahahahahahahahahah! XD

-In other news, Dean is wearing coveralls. That's different. Last time it was just a t-shirt and jeans, but I guess this time no one's actually died, so Bobby's enforcing auto shop protocol. Or something. They're very clean coveralls too.
Photo 35

-Taking out violent racists and forcing hate groups to disband, all pretty supportable stuff Castiel's doing so far. A bit more of a 'blood and thunder' God than a 'love thy neighbour' God. Or actually, more of a 'love thy neighbour, or else' God. So far. Hm.
Photo 36

-I don't know about the vibrational enlightenment thing though.... maybe it was a scam or a cult preying on people for money etc? No idea.

-"He's lied to us, he used us, he's cracked your gourd like it was nothin'. No more talk, we have spent enough on him." Also 'I have no family' is about as direct a slap in the face of Dean's abandonment issues as you can get, not that he'd mention that himself. Yep, it's probably going to be a long slog to get Dean past that without some significant alteration in what Castiel's doing. Half the season, maybe? I don't know though.
Photo 37

-What a very BC campground, and a very huntery RV, maybe, going by the sigils?
Photo 38

-HA! No, not huntery. Don't even have to see his face. HI CROWLEY!!! Listening to "These Boots are Made for Walkin'" by Nancy Sinatra, another apt song choice with meta potential. *nods*
Photo 39

-Miracling away leprosy is a supportable act too. So far, aside from not being particularly forgiving, Castiel's.... effective? I guess? I don't know. O.o

-"Hello, Crowley. You look stressed." Not often you see Crowley going 'Oh shit,' blurry or not. Or both!
Photo 40
Photo 41

-"Let's go." HEEEEEEEE! XD
Photo 42

-"I have plans for you." And now a slightly milder version of Crowley's 'oh shit' face, Crowley's 'eep' face.
Photo 43

-Must admit, Crowley was thorough with the sigils. No angels are gonna be getting into his fridge or stove or cutlery drawers. *nods*
Photo 44

-Hang on. So if it wasn't Crowley paging him in the church earlier, who was it? His inner monsters? *ponders*

-*nods at the strategic value of the decisions being made* Wow. Castiel got some tactical sense along with the monster-soul-bingeing, it seems.

-"I gather this is not a negotiation."/"No."/"Then I graciously accept. Boss." Hee! Crowley knows which way the wind is currently blowing.
Photo 45

-Hehehe. Uh oh. Yeah, Castiel's been doing a lot of high-powered public smiting and so forth lately. He might have sucked Purgatory dry, but that's still a finite number of souls, and Jimmy was never even supposed to be able to hold an archangel as far as we know, never mind a deity. Things are going to start breaking down. Or breaking out...? O.o
Photo 46

-Uh oh, hallucination time for Sam again....
Photo 47

-AAAAAAH!!! CHAINS ERUPTING FROM THE CEILING! I am suddenly very glad I've never watched Hellraiser, but no doubt someone on the show has. It's just choking though, not *handwave* other things, because of course this is Sam, and it's Thursday Friday, and therefore Sam must get choked instead of impaled or skinned. *nods*
Photo 48

-[Spec-warning for the spec-phobes]A thought occurred to me between pauses. Death was the one who snagged Sam's soul and reinstalled it and all, and he should know that he definitely got Sam's soul and not any of the three others in Lucifer's box... but what if there was, like, a soul Trojan Horse or something. Not necessarily Lucifer (or Michael, or what the hell, Adam) riding along with Sam's soul, but something that establishes a link between the box and the physical world via Sam, and at some point in future, Sam's going to get used as a conduit to escape the box. Maybe? Death's probably too good not to notice something like that, but I dunno. It was a thought. I have them sometimes. ^.^[Warning clear.]

-Wow, Bobby's yard has a whatsit. Car painting room thing, with a vent fan and everything. Not that it would be any challenge to set one up after the Apocalypse bunker and all, but still, it's cool to see aspects of Bobby's non-hunting business in action. He's really got quite a thorough operation going on there. This pleases me.
Photo 49

-Also, if we don't actually see Dean painting a whole whackload of protective sigils on top of the primer before he does the layers of black finish, I'm just going to pretend that happened anyway, m'kay? Hey, if I knew symbols that could fortify or hide something against evil monsters or demons and whatnot, and happened to be painting my car, I'd totally graffiti it up before the final paint went on. They wouldn't be visible, but they'd still be there. *nods*

-"I should do this professionally." And yet when you lived normal, you didn't. Hm. ...Why do I get the strangest feeling that that could be foreshadowing? Like... what if Bobby dies and leaves them the junkyard- ...Yeah, not gonna think about that. O.o

-"He says he's okay."/"How??" Yup. Sam's standing, walking around, saying he's fine, that's good enough as far as any Winchester is concerned. Bobby, however, being an adopted Winchester, has a better sense of reality about these things and thinks it's a load of crap. I love Bobby. *pats him*
Photo 50
Photo 51

-"I just pray to God it's true."/"We need to come up with a new sayin' for that." Heh. Yeah, maybe.

-You know, eavesdropping on people talking about you when you know you're hallucinating seems highly inadvisable there, Sam. If you hear anything nasty, blame it on the Hell wall malfunction and don't take it to heart, 'kay?
Photo 52

-"Because we never catch a break, so why would we this time?" Sad but true.

-"Can't complain." *headdesk* Aaaaarg. Dammit to Hell. He was going to tell them about the hallucinations, wasn't he, and now he isn't gong to because he doesn't want to crush Dean's hopes, right? Honestly, they bring at least half of their misery down on themselves or each other by either not talking to each other because they're being pigheaded idiots, or by trying to spare each other worry when there really is something to be worried about and shouldering the whole load themselves to spare each other. Aaaaaaarg! WINCHESTERS! TALK, DAMMIT! *fistshake*
Photo 53

-"Unfortunately I lost my God guns." HEEEE. Bobby. *grins*

-...I just had the thought that it's too bad Dean threw away the necklace, they could see if it worked... but then... Oh I hope they're going to have had Sam snag it off-screen and bring it back. Even if it doesn't detect a thing. I just really hope they'll bring it back (and that Sam didn't pawn it and spend the cash on hookers while he was soulless). *crosses fingers*

-"But there might be someone." Oh great. When in doubt, summon the King of Hell. Or I guess he's the Figurehead of Hell, now? Puppet Dictator of Hell?
Photo 54

-Giraffe. Hee! XD

-"...you do wanna conspire, don't you?" Heeeeee. Crowley's cute when he's shy.
Photo 55

-Binding Death, oh dear. This is so not going to go well.

-"You really believe you can handle that kind of horsepower?" Arg. Horsepower, get it? Four Horsemen? Har har har. *headdesk*

-Yup, whatever it is it's progressing rapidly. Either reign it back or figure out something or all the entities you're stepping on the toes of now will be happy to smack you across the universe when the monster-soul juice runs out. Or you explode. Either way, mayhem, whee! \o/
Photo 56

-And that little voice there distinctly said, "Let us out." Oh dear. Oh dearie me. I do believe things are about to get very very interesting.

-EEEP! MONSTER-SOUL-CHESTBURSTER-SQUISHYSTICKYOUTY-BIT! Which will not cap comprehensibly! EEEP!! O.O

-OH MY GOD IT'S A HAND THAT UNFOLDED UNDER THE SKIN OMG! I DO NOT HAVE AN EMOTICON THAT MATCHES MY FACE RIGHT NOW!!! Looks like Castiel's going to be the conduit, or transport system, for the Purgatory souls to escape back into the physical world? Because seriously, all the monster souls ever? There could be some wicked nasty dawn of time crap... in...there.... Ooo. Ooooooo. Oh please oh please oh please let the show have sweet-talked the Lovecraft estate into letting them actually go Chthonic this season!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH! *flails excitedly while trying not to get hopes up* And I reiterate, EEEEEEEP! Because no matter how cool the stuff trying to get out of Castiel might be, it's still going to make him explode. Not that he hasn't exploded twice before and gotten over it, but still. O.O

-Yeah, things slipped under the door at Bobby's place make me nervous too. Couriers always knock.
Photo 57

-"It's from Crowley." Hee hee hee! Sticky note: "Bye forever you (fools?) Kisses, C" Yeah, I don't think this is the last we'll hear from Crowley this season either. The latin or latinish, I'm not too sure on. I see see something about herbs, maybe a human body, and then 'invoco Mortem' which is pretty easy to guess. I also see a symbol suitable for drawing on things though, and that's usually good enough for a these guys! \o/
Photo 58

-"An act of God, crystallized forever." ...okaaaay... maybe Pillar Of Salt salt? Hope they hung on to a baggie of salted!Raphael 1.0.

-Or lightning glass. I was totally gonna guess something about lightning but it seemed too easy. Yeah. Ahem. >.>

-"Jenga." Have we moved on from Yahtzee then?

-HI CAR!!! Nose of car at least. So, a jewel heist to start off the evening. Wonder if the person who bought the crystal has similar plans for it? Given we're following them on this jewel heist, I'm guessing it's not the centerpiece of a funky chandelier.
Photo 59

-"'Scuse me, you got any Grey Poupon? *smash*" Yay, sneaky thiefy knocky-outy guardy thingies! It's like season one! With added Bobby! Woo! \o/
Photo 60
Photo 61

-Hooray for flashlight-fu! \o/
Photo 62

-Oops. Couldn't have... um. Hm. I dunno. Piping nitrous oxide into the place is about all I could think of to keep the mundanes distracted and out of the way. However, Dean does have backup. Somewhere.
Photo 63

-Also zip-ties. Zip-ties work. *nods*

-"I found the God-thingy." Hee! *draws hearts around Dean*

-I don't know why I'm laughing so hard that they're doing this ritual in the guy's house, and that they had to mash up the crystal thing. I really don't.

-For half a second I was wondering about the very precise placement of the fast food, and then I remembered they're summoning Death, the ultimate fast food junkie. That's adorably thoughtful of them.
Photo 64

-Note for future major summoning spells; avoid doing them in rooms full of glass display cases.
Photo 65

-...That clock noise in the background suddenly got really loud...

-"You're joking." HI DEATH!!! I AM SO HAPPY YOU'RE BACK!!! AS WEIRD AS THAT MIGHT SOUND!!! \o/
Photo 66

-"Seems like you bound me." Ooooooo, shiny spectral chaaaains. Or cooooords. Whateeeeever. Coooooool.
Photo 67

-"Just hear us out... Fried pickle chip?" *hits pause and laughs about half a minute*

-"This is about Sam's hallucinations, I assume." BUSTED! XD
Photo 68

-"We need you to kill God." And this would be Death's very rare surprised face.
Photo 69

-"What makes you think I can do that?"/"You told me." Also busted.
Photo 70
Photo 71

-"Because we said so and we're the boss of you." *snerk* Yeah, I'm with Sam and Bobby on this one, Dean.
Photo 72

-"Amazing." OH. SHIT. Yeah. Nothing like your former best friend who turned himself into a deity showing up while you're trying to get Death to kill him. ...Actually, yeah, there really is nothing like that. I suppose they could have tried to reason with Castiel, but they're operating at the same level of grey area as he is right now. He's clearing house and not offering second chances, and they're trying to stop him from killing more people, innocent or otherwise, in the most final way possible rather than talking. Regardless, the angst level's about to shoot through the roof here.
Photo 73

-Wow, you're, uh... looking a little crispy there Castiel. I don't think Clearasil would help either.
Photo 74

-"Death is our bitch." Death is also in the room with you and likely not terribly impressed with the situation already without your succinct assessment of his situation, Dean. Plus you can't keep him bound forever.

-"Annoying little protozoa, aren't they... God?" Heheh. I really like Death. He's got attitude.
Photo 75

-Oh, right, there are mundanes in the room. Who will need SO MUCH THERAPY after this.
Photo 76

-"You look awfully like a mutated angel to me." Yup. Can't fool Death. Poor Cas. Cas needs to get better, get over this God thing, and not explode. *nods*

-"There are things much older than souls in Purgatory and you gulped those in too." EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! *flails too hard to type* OMG PLEASE LET THEM HAVE GOTTEN SOME KIND OF OKAY FROM THE LOVECRAFT ESTATE??? O.O

-"Uh... what older things?" Dean, boggle-check imminent. I'm kind of with him on that. I so hope it's Cthulhu and gang, even though that would effectively Kripke a couple things in my in-progress folder. Oooooo.... *bounces*
Photo 77

-"The Leviathans." Ooooo.... okay, this also is cool. *nods again*

-"Why do you think He created Purgatory? To keep those clever, poisonous things out." Yup, still going 'oooooo' here.

-"He's the one thin membrane between the Old Ones and your home." Geh- geh- geh- *gasp* WHAT??? Did he say- HE DID!!! OLD ONES! *flail* OMG!!! In this context, that's practically Mythos terminology. Ohhh so close to a name tag. So close. Eeeeeee! IT MIGHT BE CTHULHU! Or something close to Cthulhu and the rest of the Mythos critters and deities that the Lovecraft estate was willing to sign off on on the show's budget. OMG YOU GUUUUUUUUYS!!!! \o/

-[*locks down part of timeline of something in the in-progress folder, so it happens long before this and the characters will have no knowledge of whatever might be happening right now* I NEED TO WRITE FASTER, DAMMIT! D-:]

-"What are you, a flyswatter?"/"Destined to swat you, I think." Yeaaaah, 'God' and Death squaring off and getting in each other's faces. Pretty much all the mortals in the room can do at this point is stand back and stare in stunnedness. As Dean so ably demonstrates.
Photo 78
Photo 79
Photo 80

-"Really bought his own press, this one." Hehe. Yeah, that he has, sadly. He'll get over it though.
Photo 81

-"Please, Cas. I know God, and you, Sir, are no God." *chortles* Oh and Dean's reaction!
Photo 82

-"Call it what you want, just kill him now!" Ow. Owwwwwww.
Photo 83
Photo 84
Photo 85

-Ah, yes. There's the tactically smart solution from Castiel's standpoint. Break the bond, no more compulsion to obey, and Death being the enigmatic true neutral he is has no reason to stick around, unless he wants to have a few words with Dean about the treatment of bonded prisoners. Seriously, Dean, Sam, you guys are too underpowered to go the direct assault route. Try, I dunno, talking? To Castiel? About cutting back on the wholesale death, and what the hell is trying to break out of him, and how to stop it before you have a real problem? He's not exacty listening with that head full of monster voices, but it's worth a shot. Hmmmmmm?
Photo 86

-"Should we 'kick butts' now?" Heeeeeeeee! XD
Photo 87
Photo 88

-And even though he's free to go literally anywhere, Death sticks around for the deep-fried pickles. I love Death. I really do.
Photo 89

-You're looking a little shaky there Castiel, are you really sure you shouldn't rather go have a nap or something before you get on with offing hate-mongers and racists and possibly unscrupulous politicians of some kind?
Photo 90

-"I put your needs first, don't you understand?" Ohhh, Castiel trying to justify his actions to some poor political aide. Poor Cas. You're not having a good season so far and it's only 28 minutes into it.
Photo 91

-"I am a better God than my father. How can make you understand."/"*whispering*"/"*starts laughing*" Oh shit. Yeah. Not good to listen to the voices in your head, dude. Particularly those ones. They do not want tacos. *headshake*
Photo 92

-Sam's head-bobble of 'you gonna apologize to Death or are we all gonna just stand around and watch him chew' is adorable.
Photo 93

-"Um-"/"Shut up, Dean." HAHAHAHA. Yeah. All things considered.
Photo 94

-"I warned you about those souls, how long ago? Long enough to stop that fool, and here we are again with your little planet on the edge of immolation." Yep. That whole soul investigation thing Death asked you to do really didn't go far, did it.

-"Maybe I should spend my effort on a better planet." *glee* I love these little non-terrestrial references that pop up now and then. There's more stuff going on out there, and I want to know about it.
Photo 95

-"You have to care a little bit about what happens to us."/"No, I really don't." Because, you know, Death. Great equalizer, pretty much by definition does not care. When it's someone's time to die, they die. Doesn't matter if they were saving the world or watching table tennis on TV. Death just is. No caring.
Photo 96
Photo 97

-And the delivery of the central immediate problem to be solved; get Castiel to purge the souls back into purgatory. Easy peasy. Let's see how that goes, shall we?

-"But that door only opens in the eclipse, and that's over."/"I'll make another." *blink* Wow. COOL! At 3:59 AM Sunday just before dawn, for a lunar eclipse on a moon that's not even full maybe. Okay, suddenly I want to know ALL THE SCIENCE INVOLVED in this gate opening thing, because how does that work? Is it the moonlight being blocked that's necessary? Is it the red refracted light from the Earth's penumbra and umbra? And how's he going to do that without pulling things out of orbit, or would some other shadowing thing work? And what about the Purgatory denizen blood and virgin blood? Or, wait. Eve's egg-laying corpse is in the lab! She's got blood, and the vessel's a virgin, maybe she'd be like a one-stop shop for spell components. *ponders*

-"Try to bind me again, you'll die before you start. Nice pickle chips, by the way." Heeeeeee. Death is so awesome. XD
Photo 98

-They will never ever understand what the hell just happened. *pats the mundanes*
Photo 99

-Um. Ow? O.O
Photo 100

-Oh Cas. See? Don't listen to those voices. They are not trying to help you. On the up side, maybe you'll figure out that this monster-soul-powered Godhood schtick has some serious problems with it.
Photo 101
Photo 102

-Oooooor you'll go into fugue trying to escape what you've done and the monsters will fully take over. O.O
Photo 103
Photo 104

-Oh, and *looks at two page scene in fic notebook, sighs, crumples and tosses* *points at the screen* That. Mine wasn't quite as bloody though. *sighs again*

-"We can't bring the horse to water and we can't make it drink. Why fool ourselves." Ow, Dean. Probably true, but still ow.
Photo 105

-"And it turns out you're about the same open book as you've always been." *headdesk* Yes. Fine. Let's all get drunk and hammer on each other about our communication issues while Castiel's being over-written by monster-souls, Sam's overdue for a major collapse-like event, and Death is causing you an eclipse so you can do something you have no chance of actually doing as the one known chance to save the world from frigging Mythos creatures. Now's a perfect time to discuss communication issues that go back to your teens pre-teens childhood! AAARG!!! Winchesters. Love 'em to bits, much as I often want to throttle them. This must be how Bobby feels. *nods*
Photo 106
Photo 107

-"I thought why burst the one good bubble you had left. It's under control." *headshake* WINCHESTERS.

-"You wanna know how I'm gonna deal? I'm gonna stuff my pie-hole, I'm gonna drink, and I'm gonna watch some Asian cartoon porn and act like the world's about to explode because it is." ...you know Dean, if Mythos creatures do start showing up, you're going to really regret watching hentai. Tentacles. Just sayin'. O.o
Photo 108

-And Dean's computer (or Bobby's?) is officially a Dell. Someone's getting product placement bucks, finally! Yay for budgetary assistance! \o/

-"There's security footage." Gyaahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaa! That's just not right! O.O
Photo 109

-Oh, cool. I don't know whether it's a glitch on the one I' watching or if it's deliberate, but when Castiel starts fuzzing out the video feed, the shot of the boys at Bobby's flickered too. O.o

-Sam, walking alone in the junkyard. It's either a dream or an imminent hallucination.
Photo 110

-"Hey Castiel..." Or a prayer. Oh this should go well...

-"Let us help? Please?" Oh Sam.
Photo 111

-"Only if you turn that off." Hee. And aw.
Photo 112

-"Sam." Holy crap it worked. O.O
Photo 113

-"I need help." Yes, yes you do. In many many ways.
Photo 114
Photo 115

-"Supply closet." There you go. Always keep a backup jar of pre-mixed spell components on hand in case the first attempt goes wrong, gets interrupted, or needs to be done again when your dumbass family angel starts listening to the monsters inside him.
Photo 116

-"I just wanted to make amends before I die." Gnnnnngh, you aren't going to die! You're just going to puke up a couple million monster-souls into a dimensional rift. Then you can have some ginger ale. Silly drama queen. *pats*
Photo 117

-Aaaaand hallucination ambush! because Sam is overdue for a brain-diddling. Seriously though, why send the guy you all know is having hallucinations off on his own to fetch the jar of spell components? Yeesh.
Photo 118

-HI MARK!! I MEAN LUCIFER! OMG I'M SO GLAD I BLOCKED THE GUEST STAR NAMES!!! YAY!!! \o/
Photo 119

-[Spec-phobe warning]OMG, am I right about that trojan horse thing, or is this just a hallucination?? And what about the blood on the glass that he cut his hand on?? *bounces*[Warning clear.]

-"That's very good, your little theory. It's wrong-" KEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! AAAAAH! Whether I'm right or whether this is further mind-fuckery from the hallucinations, I don't care, I just made hypersonic bat-noises and made hand motions like an over-wound cymbal monkey for even the possibility being brought up.
Photo 120

-"I think this is my best torture yet." Oh even better. By all means, let's play games with Sam's personal sense of reality! *glee* \o/
Photo 121

-Hang in there, just a couple of minutes." And he pats Castiel on the shoulder, because wayward angel with need-motivated aspirations to Godhood, monster-soul bingeing, endangering the world and all, after all that, Castiel's still a member of Bobby's idjit adopted family. Aw, Bobbyyyyyy. Bobby is awesome you guys, just in case anyone forgot over the hiatus.
Photo 122

-The great thing about puking monsters into a portal is it's vertical. No one needs to hold your tie out of the way.
Photo 123

-Crap, and down he goes. Uncappably. O.O

-Yeah. This. Tell me that Dean's completely written Castiel off and will never ever forgive him for tossing aside Dean's offer of family. Go ahead. Not with that look from Dean. Just wait and see. They'll all be one big crazy angel-hunter-curmudgeon-Winchester family again, just you wait. *nods*
Photo 124
Photo 125
Photo 126

-Ooo, portal pretty.
Photo 127

-"I'm sorry Dean." ...OH CRAP. Quick, tie him to something so he can't just jump in! CASTIEL, YOU IDIOT WHAT ARE YOU THINKING OF DOING?!! O.O
Photo 128

-Yay, Bobby read the last bit of the incantation, the part with the exclamation point, as though it had an exclamation point! \o/

-Ooo... Not literally puking but still. That's gonna sting. O.O
Photo 129

-And down he goes again like a sack of wet cement. But did he go with the monsters and leave poor Jimmy behind alone, or is he still on the physical plane? *is nervous*
Photo 130
Photo 131

-"Maybe angels don't need to breathe?" Excellent point, Dean. I'm sure he's fine, though.
Photo 132

-"Dammit." With the break in the voice. Oh Deeeeeean. Castiel'll be fine, though, really! I'm sure he will. ...Right?

-"Cas, you child. Why didn't you listen to me?" As I recall, he was too busy trying to get you to listen to him. Or something like that. You both need to learn how to share. Information, responsibility and burdens. That goes for Bobby and Sam too. (I'm really hoping Sam hasn't wandered off, or isn't trying to awkwardly string himself up on meathooks in the stockroom. I'm sure Crowley keeps dozens around just for old time's sake.)

-Yup. Good morning sunshine! *pats*
Photo 133

-"That was unpleasant." HI CASTIEL! GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK AND NOT UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF MONSTER-SOULS AGAIN!! Not that you won't probably have loads of guilt and some kind of repercussions for the whole Purgatory business, (BRING ON CTHULHU THE LEVIATHANS!!!) like all the death, mayhem, mass slaughter of fellow angels who were on Raphael's side and the whole 'bow down before me, I'm a better God' thing is so gonna bite you in the ass, but that'll all get dealt with in time. So in short, YAY!!! \o/

-"Thank you, both of you." Awww, puppy-dog angel. Awwwwww.
Photo 134

-"I really over-reached."/"Ya think?" Heeeee.
Photo 135
Photo 136

-"I mean it, Dean." ...something's... off here... Maybe? I don't know.
Photo 137
Photo 138

-"I can't hold them back!" OH SHIT!!! He's still inhabited, that's what all the 'I'm sorry' is about, oh crap, I thought those things went back too easy. CAAAAAAAAS!!!! D-:
Photo 139
Photo 140

-...well shit! O.O
Photo 141

-"Cas is *shrug* He's gone." ...he'll be back. *nods* In the meantime, it seems like Leviathans are Perky Evil. I think I like that.
Photo 142

-"He's dead." ...He'll still be back. Dying and coming back is a freaking rite of passage for a Winchester, adopted or otherwise. *nods*
Photo 143
Photo 144

-"We run the show now." MAYHEM! \o/ And a break for Misha's voice. After three solid years of Grim Angel/Deep Gravel he can spend some time doing Perky Evil/Chirpy Psycho.
Photo 145
Photo 146
Photo 147
Photo 148
Photo 149

-So now the possibly Cthulhu-related Leviathans are possessing Castiel, who is possessing Jimmy Novak, (who really didn't sign up for all this even more than ever, poor kid *pats*). It's getting a bit like Inception in there. OMG, do you know what this means? HE MIGHT CHANGE HIS CLOTHES!! The trenchcoat and tie might be gone! *GASP!* D-:

-"Now this is going to be so much fun!" What the hell OMG weird lines up the side of his face gah!! (Possibly the same stuff as the black ichorsplosion from the title card?)
Photo 150
Photo 151

-And a cliffhanger off the premiere?? is that even allowed? Oh, wait, Season 2 did it too, I guess, with John's death. Still. GAH!


HOLY SHIT, WITH A START LIKE THAT, THIS YEAR LOOKS INCREDIBLE! \o/

Misha is going to have SO MUCH FUN playing the Leviathans! Oh, Castiel isn't gone, he will totally be back eventually, because he's used to being envesseled and the Leviathan isn't, so he could totally be curled up somewhere inside, encysted, sheltering Jimmy and keeping them both hidden until he (or they, wouldn't that rock?) can build up enough strength to wrest control from the Leviathans. And Sam's totally fine somewhere, he's just a bit, you know, woohoo right now. He'll probably come busting in behind Cas- ...uh. Leviathan. Yeah. Leviathan. And do something to let Dean and Bobby get out of there. Or Dean and Bobby will get out of there on their own and Sam will be off wandering in a hallucinogenic state with his best frenemy Lucifer yammering at him about reality and torture and stuff.

I'M EXCITED NOW. ARE YOU EXCITED?

He'll still be back. Dying and coming back is a freaking rite of passage for a Winchester, adopted or otherwise.

He did that already, though. Twice. 4x22-5x01 and 5x22.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 02:41 am (UTC) (Link)
Yep, and he sort of did it again tonight (briefly before Leviathan took over), and I have no doubt he'll do it again in future. Such is the life of a Winchester, honorary or otherwise. :-D
ficwriter1966 From: ficwriter1966 Date: September 26th, 2011 01:23 am (UTC) (Link)
You think Jimmy's still in there? Even after Cas went 'splodey not once but TWICE? I'm really hoping that poor sucker earned his reward and is playing a harp up on a cloud somewhere. Being chained to a comet is one thing, but the 'splodey thing is a little too much to ask. \O/

And, Misha plays an excellent crazy.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 02:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Well, he was still there in My Bloody Valentine, after the first explosion, so I figure the second where he didn't stay exploded very long and didn't have nearly as long a recovery time was a walk in the park. I dunno, maybe he moved on, but either way, he's still around somewhere. :-)

And, Misha plays an excellent crazy.

Ohhhh yus. *nods*

I am very focused on all things Sam & blood, but I did not consider that the blood on the shards Sam cut himself with could affect him! O_O. Intriguing!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 02:57 am (UTC) (Link)
It jumped right out at me because it seemed too random a thing to show at that moment not to be important later. Plus the framing of the shot had that look of 'this will be seen in a future THEN montage'. XD
silvainshadows From: silvainshadows Date: September 26th, 2011 02:55 am (UTC) (Link)
So excited. Also with you on the Cas-will-be-back thing.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 02:58 am (UTC) (Link)
Absolutely. We need, like 'Castiel Lives!' icons or something. XD

"Honestly, they bring at least half of their misery down on themselves or each other by either not talking to each other because they're being pigheaded idiots, or by trying to spare each other worry when there really is something to be worried about and shouldering the whole load themselves to spare each other. Aaaaaaarg! WINCHESTERS! TALK, DAMMIT"

I have yelled that same thing to my tv set so many times...

Enjoyed your train-of-thought viewing post, looking forward to a season's worth!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 05:18 am (UTC) (Link)
I had a very crack-meta mini fic based on 'Talk, dammit!' I wrote during the week I had between watching part 1 and part 2 of the finale. It didn't really go anywhere or finish, really, and it will likely never see the light of day.
bellatemple From: bellatemple Date: September 26th, 2011 05:01 am (UTC) (Link)
Pain in the ass demanding pets that keep having messes that need cleaning up and never say thank you. Totally apt.

You just described every pet I've ever had. I loves them so. . . .

Also, the horsepower joke went RIGHT over my head.

I just keep thinking that Misha is going to have SO MUCH FUN with this.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 05:21 am (UTC) (Link)
Yep. Pets are bundles of adorable responsibility that will never learn to take care of themselves. Darling beasts, all.

Misha is going to go to town with this.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

-"He's the one thin membrane between the Old Ones and your home." Geh- geh- geh- *gasp* WHAT??? Did he say- HE DID!!! OLD ONES! *flail* OMG!!!

That was basically me in that scene. OLD ONES! ON SUPERNATURAL! HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!

And the rest of it too. Amazing start, I'm so excited for the rest of the season :)

OLD ONES! ON SUPERNATURAL! HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!

I know!!! I don't know whether they talked to the estate and got them to cave a bit or what, but it's a very enthralling development either way!
charis_kalos From: charis_kalos Date: September 26th, 2011 10:17 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm very excited. And I was with Godstiel in pretty much all of his smiting, so it's a very good thing I'm not God.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 03:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
I dunno, I think you'd do an OK job. I wouldn't wish the responsibility of it on anyone though. XD
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: September 26th, 2011 11:16 am (UTC) (Link)
When Cas first came round after the shiny Purgatory gate vomiting scene, I thought it actually *was* Jimmy! I was really surprised Cas was still there! And yes, he'll totally be back! (Please, Ms Gamble?)

I nearly fell off my sofa when Mark Pellegrino showed up! I wondered why he was suddenly being announced for conventions again!

And I'm with you on Death. And with him being Death, he's quite possibly the one recurring character the PTB can't kill off, right...?
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 03:18 pm (UTC) (Link)

I don't think so, the bone structure of the face doesn't look right. Too round.

If I had a Cthulhu icon I would be waving it about everywhere;) I loooved this episode (and so did mom, although the room was filled with many exclamations of "oh crap."
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 03:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee! I bet it was!

You know, this episode has got the song 'Carol of the Old Ones' stuck in my head. And I think the lyrics match the situation quite well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=902wZ9XHsIo

Looking forward to seeing what happens. I just hope they don't somehow kill off the Leviathans super quickly like they have with other bad guys.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 09:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
With Misha playing them, I think they're going to be around for a while.
samalander_dawn From: samalander_dawn Date: September 26th, 2011 05:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
I indeed am also excited :)

I didn't really see it until the screencap, but I love how Cas' early facial warpings are sort of diamond-shaped....kind of like scales.... :)

bit off-topic - but have you seen 'Ringer'? (new show, Sarah Michelle Gellar). There's a guy in there who looks SO much like Misha it's funny....methinks the show is having an effect :)

This is going to be an interesting season :D
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 26th, 2011 10:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
I see roots more than scales, but that's an interesting thought. Haven't seen Ringer, haven't picked up any new shows since Sherlock really, no time.
blackcat333_99 From: blackcat333_99 Date: September 27th, 2011 07:18 am (UTC) (Link)
-New Title card! Kind of a big ichor splat, eh? Or a rather violent Rorschach test. Cool!
-Or, um. Since monsters tend to leak ichor, I think, and Castiel's full of monster souls, I really hope that's not what's in store for Cas.


Squid ink! Like... those really deep sea sized monsters that just .... well. I think the boys are gonna need a bigger harpoon this season, let's just say. My spec only here. ;)

Death is absolutely my all-time favorite recurring guest-star, BECAUSE he is so unimpressed with everything and everyone... except for deep-fried fast food, it would seem. I loved that food prep bit, because it was so inadequate to the insult the Winchesters dealt out, but on the other hand it bespoke a personal note of knowledge/history with the guy. How many other people can say they have actually broken bread with Death... and lived to tell the tale? LOL.

So psyched about this season!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: September 27th, 2011 08:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Squid ink!

That would be appropriate, I suppose!

How many other people can say they have actually broken bread with Death... and lived to tell the tale? LOL.

Indeed! Or broken pickles!

So psyched about this season!

Absolutely!
