Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 7.03
Contains profanity, capslock, meta and speculation.

Spoiler and Theory Summary

This one had a lot flying around for it because JENSEN'S DIRECTING AGAIN! \o/ My new policy of not logging spoilers combined with my crappy memory has stood me in good stead though, I think, but here's what I recall.

So, we have Sam, in a coma dreaming or having flashbacks or something because Colin Ford (WEE!SAM FTW! \o/) involved in the episode. There may also be an old girlfriend/crush of Sam's under suspicion of something, though if Sam's in a coma, it could be anything. Also seen, pic of Dean in a cast with crutches. All of which means it could be a very interesting stay for the Winchesters at Leviathan General Hospital.

*is debating a second cider* ...hmmm, not just yet. Onward!

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 7.03 - ???? "The Girl Next Door"

-Skipping the Then. Again. Amen.

-"3, 2, 1, set." Heeeeee! Poor Dean.

-"Okaaay, I gotta go." Love the croaky desperate woozy voice here.

-And he slips off to dream his way into Director land! Probably a Dean-light episode tonight. I'm wondering if he did this bit after the majority of the directing for extra verisimilitude at being nearly unconscious.

-Or not. Hm. Have we had Dean in a hospital bed since the start of Season 2?

-It has words, I must cap it. Maximum of two visitors? Is that common in the US? My mom was in the hospital recently and I don't think she had less than three in the room very often.

-*sits back and enjoys woozy hospital Dean*
Damn that's a big watch.


-Ow, ow, ow, there are less painful and damaging ways of taking one of those out than yanking on it, Dean.

-Fine, yes, okay, I'm a sucker for wounded, woozy Dean. Hush, I'll get on with it eventually. It's just... *points* Sleepy bear. Aw.

-"*whump* Ah!" *snorts* You know, I always knew this show had an impressive 'cast'. *smirks evilly and ducks flying objects*

-HI BOBBY I KNEW YOU WEREN'T DEAD!!! I made icons and everything! Though I'm still not sure if you're a Leviathan. Where's your hat? *eyeballs*

-"Bobby, you're alive." Oh Deeeeeean. The little lost voice...

-Dean on morphine is just too damned adorable.

-"Hey look, a monster broke my leg." *snerk* Not too alert though.

-Don't mind me, just commemorating all the *handwave* things. As one does.

-"Meet me at the ambulance dock, stat. I'll find Sam" *flails all over the place* Bobby and the boys breaking out of a hospital! Yay! Of course since it's only 3 minutes in and we haven't even hit the title card, it's all going to go to hell, but still, yay! \o/

-*grins all over everything forever*

-After all that, I really hope Bobby's not something other than Bobby. But even if he is... *cuddles the adopted Winchester-Singer family/mutual badass support society schmoop*

-19 caps and I'm only four minutes in. Eeep. O.o

-Hi LeviaDoc! And Levia...OtherDoc? Or was she the Head Nurse that got taken over last week? "You've scheduled dessert I presume?" Just in case we forgot they eat people.

-*DUN* "The Winchesters?" Yep. Leviathans would certainly recognize them. They're a bit busted up at the moment, but they'll no doubt still cause you a heck of a lot of grief.


-Ah yes, the wonderful wiggly world of pain and narcotics. This escape attempt could go very badly.

-Just hee! I know Dean's in pain and all, but... XD

-Yoink! And Bobby snags Sam. And we still haven't hit the title card so things are still going to start going badly any second now.

-*gestures randomly and giggles*

-Bobby tongue! \o/ Sorry, sorry... maybe the cider wasn't such a hot idea.

-*Giggles more* Hobble like the wind, Dean!


-And we're at the Leviathan splat. 35 caps later. Oh dear. I really need to get a grip here. XD

-Wherever it is they're hiding after Bobby's place got incinerated, it's pretty!

-Apparently pretty place is supposed to be Whitefish, Montana, three weeks later. That'll teach me to wait for the chyron.

-Hi Sam, you're looking conscious, and cleared for beer, fried chicken and reading, so recovered from the head injury! Congratulations!

-And now Dean has a legitimate case-related reason to watch Dr. Sexy. Fanboy win! *fistbump*

-Weeell, or telenovelas. Really, in terms of where the Leviathans got their hospital take-over template, either is as likely to provide useful intel. In other words, not freaking much. Dean's still in the cast after three weeks, primarily for Directorial reasons I'm sure, though Sam's head being better is... hm. You know, I'm going to think any character that's been out of sight of the other characters for more than a few minutes could be a Leviathan for this whole damned season, right? (*nods randomly at the Schlitz Beer continuity*)

-"Like shapeshifters, only a lot more into eatin' folk." Good enough for a surface summary. *nods*

-Uh oh. Jingles. Sam has a hallucination or something inbound. That head injury can't have helped the Hell-PTSD and Lucifer/little evil voice/monster blood problem any.


-And now, a demonstration of Winchesterian eyebrow language in action.

"What? I'm fine, innocent and befoozled that you might suggest I was hallucinating again."

"O RLY?" Followed by the very subtle shift of...

"I will kick your ass with my busted leg if you're trying to hide your problems from me again." Or something like that.

(Spoken: "Yeah, I'm fine.")"Why would I ever be anything but fine after a head injury, hallucinations and spending quality time in Hell with Lucifer? It confuses me deeply that you think I would be anything but the perfectly fine I say I am."

"...okaaaaaaay.... maybe... if you say so...?"

"Bobby knows I'm fine, don't you, Bobby?"

(Hard to tell with Bobby; he's not a native Winchesterian eyebrow communicator, and also he speaks it with a hat. With Bobby, 'Idjits' is probably a safe enough assumption though.)

-"Rufus leave anything?" Aw, they're in one of Rufus's old bolt holes. Aw, Rufus.

-"I thought most of those books were one of a kind?"/"Yup, that's why I stashed copies all over the place." Like a one-man Project Gutenberg of the occult. Bobby is awesome. That is all.

-*facepalm* Yes. Give the Impala keys to the guy with unresolved hallucination issues and a recent head injury. You are on some pretty high-end drugs, aren't you Dean?

-"Pie!" \o/

-"Seems to me that Sam's head ain't no different than your leg." Yup. Pragmatism. They're both broke, but they'll heal. Though I suspect Dean's leg has much less hair than Sam's head. *nods*

-Written by Andrew Dabb and Daniel Loflin, seems to me they do a lot of the backstory episodes, aaaaand... the second Director Credit ever for Jensen Ackles! Woot! And well-timed to happen while Dean is facepalming (and Bobby is... getting up from a chair with an unusual spring in his step). O.o

-"Maybe he'll surprise ya." That's probably part of what Dean's worried about, since surprises in his life usually aren't happy ones.

-Yay, serial killer! Or... what was that thing with the spike in the wrist that messed with the brain and drinks spinal fluid or something. Wraith? Wraith. ...Oh crap. the last thing Sam's over-baked noodle needs is a wraith messing with it. O.o

-AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! IT'S ABOUT TIME THEY GOT BUSTED ON THE CREDIT FRAUD!! Things are a lot less lax than in John's early day. ALSO, nice subliminal foreshadowing on the sidebar article in the newspaper. "Debt Warning" indeed. XD

-Also, the current date is sometime after June 15 2011, but I think we already knew that.

-OH. 'KAY. Yeah, that's a definite debt warning. Widespread infiltration of Leviathans, quietly doing day to day things and gathering intel, and all knowing everything Castiel knew about the Winchesters. They are so screwed. YAY FOR EFFECTIVE ADVERSARY CHARACTERS!! \o/

-"So why are you still talking to me?" Heee. Evil with chains of command and delegation and requiring underlings to take initiative and things and DAMN I LOVE THE LEVIATHANS!

-Considering Jensen's directing, there's a hell of a lot of Dean in this episode. That must have been a major challenge.

-"Yeah, I'm still seeing crap that's not real, but I'm fine." I thoroughly agree with Dean's face.

-No pie. Aw.

-"You got cake. That's close enough, right?" Okay, yeah, Sam's off his freaking nut. XD

-Newspaper! And man did the props/art department go to town on this one. There's a whole trivia contest worth of factoids in there, and no 'Lorem Ipsum' or repetition. Stab wounds are to the head, Steve Thomason the most recent victim was 35 and found in Livingston park on Tuesday evening by a jogger and his shoe chewing dog and had only been paroled from jail (heroin possession) for three months and may have been using, so maybe the killer's got a grudge, or is only going after people who aren't squeaky clean. Also the dead guys last meal was a chicken sandwich and a soda, and one of the people the police interviewed about him has an allergy to sunlight. I love the art department, just from that I can see the case building. It's like an RPG! Who do we talk to first, the person with the sunlight allergy or the jogger? \o/

-HI COLIN!!! HI!!! I don't remember the late 90's being that yellow, but who cares, OMG WEE!SAM IS WORKING A CASE OMG! *waves at the screen like a freak* A case in Lincoln. We've been to Lincoln before, haven't we? Yeeeessss... Devil's Trap, that was where Meg met John (also probably where Caleb was killed) and The Magnificent Seven was also Set in Lincoln. Oooo! Are we gonna see Caleb??? Not dying???? What's Josh Blacker up to lately anyway? (Apparently after death, Caleb joined the Marines and jumped through a Stargate or something) O.O

-OMG, AND WEE!SAM HAS MY OLD CELLPHONE! Good old Nokia brick. I bet his high score on Snakes is freaking scary. Sorry, sorry, geeking out here.

-Kitsume? Kitsune? A Japanese fox-demon? But it stabs you behind the ear to get to your brain. Not a wraith though. Probably a good thing, that. *nods*

-"No, don't put him on the phone! ...Hi Dad." Owww, wee!Sam face of repressed angst and resignation.

-Dean is going to yell at you, Sam. He did apparently nibble some of the icing off the Not!Pie though, which is strangely touching.

-"There's no date night like a 3D ride to Hell." Oh my god, I know that tag line. XD Almost. A little altered. Hee!

-"My Bloodiest Valentine. In Hell-vision, 3D." HA! I... don't know whether to be smug I recognized the altered tag line before the title, or concerned by my obsession levels. ...Or really concerned that I want to watch it again in 2D, right now. O.o

-Ah, drug dealer and drug user. Guessing one's the victim and the other is possibly the monster? Yep. Dealer's gonna die. Possibly in a funky looking skate park.

-Yep. Too dark to tell if the killer was his buyer, but it could be. I think I saw a mini-skirt.

-"The wildebeest lounges..." Heheheheh! It's a re-run though. Hopefully no zombies about to attack this time.

-And Sam's ass is about to get kicked with a five pound cast.

-"Other shoe!" When the crap hits the impeller blades, call Bobby.

-Hey, I recognize the font on that gas station sign, I think... It's not the font for Car Wars... It's a bit CNN-ish, but I've seen that A before... Ah, it's the Battlestar Galactica font. *nods*

-*loses several hours looking at fonts* ARG. Fonts are my TV Tropes. Where were we? Yes. Dean attempting to kick Sam's ass via Bobby.

-"Yeah, but his 'me time' ain't just him." Excellent point. When your primary source of reality checking is other people's input or causing yourself pain, going off alone to hunt monsters is probably not a good idea. I don't know whether mentioning the hunt in the note would have made things better or worse.

-Dean has a stick now instead of the crutches. Oddly, I approve. Good sticks are hard to find.

-"Left me here like Jimmy friggin' Stewart." Heheh. Rear Window. I really should watch that some time.

-"And he took my car!" Cardinal sin number one for Dean, yep.

-Just in case anyone wanted to know where the gas goes into the Bobbymobile, there you are. Same spot as the Impala, if I recall correctly (Shown in "Scarecrow"), must be a Chevy trait. Also, very lovely camera angle on leaning Bobby *applauds Director!Jensen's choice of shots*.

-"Give it a couple of days, just til you get the cast off. Then hunt him down. Til then we'll both just keep callin'."/"Alright." ...That was far too easy an agreement....


-"You're goin' down." *gasping with laughter* Bobby's idjit-senses have got to be tingling. XD

-Or not. Maybe they've burnt out from overuse. Well, I'll cover for him then. Dean, you idjit.

-"I worked a case like this a few years back." Thirteen years back actually. When he was fifteen, and would probably rather have been doing his homework. I love this show.

-*sneeeeeeerk* When Dean gets hold of you, Sam, he is truly going to kick your ass. Actually, answering the phone, telling him you're working a case and doing fine at the moment might help... Naw. You took the Impala without asking. Last time you did that you shot a Crossroads Demon, so precedent says you are doing something stupid no matter what you say and are due a justified ass-kicking.

-ETA: OOO! Belated speculatey thought. Bobby said they'd both keep trying to call Sam, so why is Sam's phone only showing calls from Dean? Is this evidence that Bobby is a Leviathan sleeper cell now, or just that between the rate Sam is checking his phone and the rate Dean is calling, Dean's the only one hammering on Sam's phone in that block of time while Bobby gives his ear a break? *ponders*

-An awful lot of Dean for an episode Jensen's directing. Not that I have any problem with a lot of Dean, just it must have been total hell for him to wear both hats simultaneously so often.

-Wile E.! Ah, yes. This is a WB show, so rights to show WB clips in the episode are a non concern. *nods*

-"Was there a big guy in here yesterday?" It's a gas station that also sells fishing tackle, Dean. You may want to narrow those parameters.

-HA! HAHAHAHAHAHA! T-shirt on the clerk is for Batman: Under the Red Hood. And I went back to check and I can't tell what the t-shirt the guy is wearing when talking to Sam says, but I now suspect it's one of Preistly's from Ten Inch Hero. Jensen had fun throwing in stuff this time around, didn't he? That's adorable! XD

-Yay for the corpse drawer cam! \o/

-"They need a steady diet of human pituitary glands to survive." Awfully picky of them. Not a lot of substance to the average pituitary either. Also, you know, with all the assorted organ hunting monsters and whatnot, I bet Wee!Sam kicked ass in Biology.

-*smishes wee!researchy!Sam to bits*

-"Triple Red-Eye, please?" *SMISHES WEE!RESEARCHYCAFFEINE-JUNKIE!SAM EVEN MORE!* Obviously, it did not stunt his growth.

-And that would be the eponymous "Girl Next Door" who will either be the monster or imperiled soonish.

-"I said you stab it in the heart!" Sounds like a typical conversation for a fifteen-year-old. I wasn't even playing D&D yet at that age and I had many similar conversational moments. Sometimes with myself. *nods*

-"Dean, quick question. How do you talk to girls?" HAHAHAH. Great. Now do the opposite of everything Dean says. XD

-Sam started with the 'notice slightly occult jewelry' thing early, then. Nice Pilot nod too. Maybe?

-"No. Go away." Aw. Poor wee!Sammy.

-"I'm not supposed to talk to boys." Well that's a nicer way of letting him down, I guess. I still think you're the brain-sucking monster, though. Maybe.

-Hey, that kid's been on the show before... OH MY GOD, IT'S LUCAS FROM DEAD IN THE WATER! Obviously not Lucas the character, but *checks DVD* Nico McEown who played Lucas playing a random guy. COOL! Yay for the little pool of Vancouver actors, endlessly cycling through lower mainland productions! Maybe his character's a distant non-Lake Manitoc cousin not afflicted by the Dead in the Water curse. Yeah.

-Wee!Sam to the rescue! Also, Lucas's non-Wisconsin cousin is an ass.

-NINJA SAMMY! \o/ Before he hit that major growth spurt and got really bad at hand to hand combat. WOO!

-Back in the present, Sam is skulking through some really familiar woods. "Wendigo" right up to "The Man Who Knew Too Much". If I ever get over to the Lower Mainland again, I think I need to track down those woods.

-Ah, drunk soon-to-be driver, one of the favoured meals of every quasi-moral, pituitary-eating monster. Chemically altered and publicly dangerous.

-Hey, I wonder what effect alcohol and drugs have on the pituitary gland? *googles* Pft! Okay, alcohol messes with hormone secretion from the gland, and apparently, heroin use increases the volume of the gland. So maybe it's not a vaguely moral choice at all, but a practical dinner-related one; toxified glands have a build up of hormones and/or are larger. So she's not necessarily being moral here, she could just be super-sizing, with extra 'special sauce'. HA! XD

-"Hi Amy." Yep. Like it was going to be anyone else.

-This actress looks vaguely familiar... Is she from something else? Have to take a better look in good light, and maybe after she's unruffled her hair.

-"You got tall, hunh?" *snorts* And Amy is observant. Aaarg, who is the actress and where is she from? It's bugging me so much I bet it's someone really obvious and I'm going to facepalm so hard when I Google for it afterward, assuming I don't guess before then.

-"Ready to play doctor?" Hee! Aw. Wee!Sam got dinged. Awwwww.


-*still laughing* Oh god. XD

-*switches from cider to coffee* Okay, I think I'm good to go. (DIP! *snerk*)

-"My dad doesn't listen to anything recorded after 1979." Kripke's law, isn't it? Can't quite determine the song playing now, though.

-A girl takes a drink from your soda and you get a tiny little smirky leer? You are indeed your brother's brother, Sammy. Watch out for monster toxins in that soda though.

-"I've seen the world biggest ball of twine twice." And the second biggest with Dean in Usual Suspects. Why twine? I mean, as a former Girl Guide, I know how to build functional furniture out of twine and random sticks, but that's not a useful skill in a hunting millieu.

-I may not recognize present Amy, but past Amy is frigging adorable. *pats her head and gives her a cookie*

-"Three times." Rootless, constantly moving, biggest ball of twine, all that and she's a monster too? She was destined to be Sam's high school crush.

-"Sam, you are a freak. But so is Jimi Hendrix and Picasso. So am I." So much for not talking to boys. That's some class A flirting there.

-Aw, Sam's first kiss (assuming) is with a monster-girl that eats bits of intoxicated people's brains with ranch dip. Somehow this too seems stunningly appropriate. XD

-OH! Hey! It's her! From thing! Firefly! Kaylee! Um. Jewel Saite! Arg! *epic facepalm* Okay, in my defense, I've only seen the movie and bits of two episodes that I recall (a duel and something about cows), but I recognize her from icons and that convention picture with the Weeping Angel encounter now.

-"I had to. I can't- I just had to." ...She has a kid, doesn't she?

-"I can't. I'm sorry."/"So am I. *disarm* *headsmash into tree (that's not going to help the head injury)*" Yes, Sam gained height, but lost combat skills. *facepalm*

-Ooo, new eyes. Purplish and lizardy.

-...Matchbook? And a stick of gum? And some paper? Eh? Is this like a 'If I am found unconscious or dead, please call Dean at the number on the matchbook, so he can come to the hospital and kick my ass' sort of thing? Winchester medic-alert? Maybe?

-Tie report! First one of the season, maybe, or at least half of one. Down to Dean's left, aaaand *scrolls back* Looks like Sam's was down to his right, red bordered stripes on blue. Almost opposite of Dean's here. It's a bit late for it not to bode well, but it doesn't bode well.

-Kitsune. So yeah, fox-related something. Didn't know foxes were keen on pituitary glands, but there's a lot I don't know about foxes.

-"What are ya gonna do when you catch up?"/"I got a few ideas." Stating with ass-kicking. And shouting. Possibly chaining Sam to plumbing fixtures again or something. The possibilities are endless, really.

-Yep, she's got a kid.

-Sam's getting better at bouncing back from head injuries.

-"You dropped this." Ohhhhhh. Not a Winchester medic-alert, but a very fast and smart pickpocket. With a head injury. In mid-combat. Dude, the modifiers on that pickpocket roll would have been insane!

-"Amy Pond, hunh?" *blinks* WHAT??? SERIOUSLY??? AMY POND??? Companion to the Eleventh Doctor on Doctor Who and who I can't Google due to DW spoilers (omgI'msofarbehind). O.o Did she regenerate or something? If so it's gone horribly wrong, what with the pituitary gland eating and all. Ooooor, maybe she's using Amy and different fake last names from pop culture stuff like the boys do with rock band names etc. Maybe in '98 her name was Amy Rose instead? Regardless, someone in the writer's room must be a major Doctor Who fan. YAY! \o/

-Probably would have been a good idea to wash off the blood from dinner before packing up your stuff and fleeing. Just a thought. Little late now though.

-Ah the fumble-fingeredness of first love. Heh. He didn't actually drink out of the can, so if her drinking from it was a kind of poison/retcon set-up, that didn't happen.... except she kissed him, so she could have done whatever she did to the can directly... buuuuut I'm far too paranoid aren't I.

-Ah yes, the usual teenage relationship moment of bonding over unpleasant parental encounters. John may not be a perfect dad, however he doesn't eat people's pituitary glands, with or without ranch dip, so he's got that on Amy's mom.

-"I've been around enough bad to know good when I see it." True. As far as monsters go, she's... well, still killing people and eating bits of their brains, but at least she's not ravening and going on wholesale massacres.

-"It's just... she has this whole plan for me, I don't wanna be like her, you know?" HA. Why no! Sam Winchester, not wanting to be what other people have planned for him? Not wanting to be part of the family business? He couldn't ever possibly know what that's like. Ever. Okay, maybe a wee bit. *snerk*

-"Drop the knife and I'll show you."/"Show me and I'll drop the knife." Considering she disarmed you and whacked your ginormous melon into a tree earlier tonight, I don't think the knife is really going to help you if she does go psycho there, Sam.

-Yep, kid, and definitely no chance of him being Sam's in any way at all. Whew! O.O

-"But you're still feeding."/"On the dead. I'm a mortician." Wait, so who's killing people then? And why was she skulking around in the woods looking at someone who seemed like a target? ...Is it her mom? Is she trying to stop her? But wasn't she... with the blood and things.... I sense an unexpected turn of plot. O.o

-"He needed fresh meat." Ahhhh. The kitsune equivalent of chicken soup.

-"You can still walk away from this. We both can." Why do I have a sudden sense of impending doom? The bushes keep wiggling outside that window, I keep thinking it's Dean catching up to Sam. Maybe that's the doom.

-"After what I did for you?" Yeah, I figured there had to be more to the flashbacks than some research, a bully smackdown, and a kiss. She turned in her mom, didn't she? Or did she kill her herself?

-"Couple of pros in a piece of crap Impala." Okay, eat all the human pituitary glands you want, but insult the Impala and die.

-"I just have to go. I'm sorry." There have been worse endings to first meeting/dates than finding out the person you shared your first kiss with and her mother eat human brain glands and your family is trying to kill them. It got all star-crossed Romeo and Juliet there for a split-second, didn't it?

-BRAIN! INNA JAR! DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUN!!! Plausible deniability isn't really an option anymore for Amy and her mom.

-Yeah, in the face of a fresh jar of brain, that whole first romance thing slips in priority and the family business comes roaring to the forefront like a big nasty roaring thing, doesn't it Sam?

-"It's my dad and bother in the Impala." Told ya. Leave brains on the table, fine, but don't insult the Impala. *nods*

-"So you're supposed to kill me and I'm supposed to kill you?" Ah the teenage search for personal identity in an ever-changing world. Though if anyone's killing anyone, Momma monster is due... no, wait, she's putting gas in the van or whatever. She'll be gone a while. Maybe. Given where they ended up years later, there's not going to be a lot of killing going on in this room.

-Ah, he didn't kill her and she let him get away. So what happened to her mom?

You know what that is (besides a punch in the face that is much easier on a recently broken leg than delivering a kick in the ass would be)? A very good inversion of that bit from the Pilot. *googles around can't find a gif arg* In the Pilot, after Dean jumps off the bridge, when they get to John's hotel room and Sam yanks Dean into the room by the collar of his coat, this is similar both visually and in pacing of movement, and an inversion with Sam facing the door when Dean had had his back to it, and a punch instead of a yank, and it's all quite wonderful really. Plus he gets to make Jared fall down a lot and get back at him for yanking him off his feet without warning seven years ago. Well-planned, Director Jensen! \o/

-"Howdy, Sam." Ah yes, we have reached the epic yelling portion of the evening's festivities.

-"New rule; you steal my baby, you get punched." Whaddaya mean, new?

-Although it is another ping on the head injury. Sam's should have some kind of brain swelling by now. And as in the past, a cold can of beverage to the face (same side even) to cool a forming bruise. Watch out with that beer, Sam. It'll go straight to your head. Har har. XD

-"I took care of it."/"Really? Where's the body?" Hehe. And this is yet another thing that is not going to go well for Sam. Or, I suspect, Amy Pond. You know, I'm thinking there are a probably a few crossovers where Dean meets Amy Pond, but... Heeee! This isn't one of them. Hee hee heeeee. (How is this my sixth cup of coffee now?)

-Aw, puppy. *pats*

-Oh crap. Yeah, in the long and varied history of dating, meeting the girl's parental figure has never gone quite this badly.

-*gets a good big eyeful of the nature of Amy's mom's character* Ya know, even if she wasn't a gland-eating monster, I'd still root for the Winchesters to hunt her down. *issues, moves on*

-Ooo, extendo-claws. Nifty!

-Yup. *thud* Doubt she'll be missed.

-A girl killing her murderous mom for you on a first date that wasn't even really a date, that's a pretty jump in the level of a relationship.

-Yeah, Sam, take your jacket off and brood a while. For one, it'll give Amy and offspring an even bigger head start.

-Black and white versus grey, on and off versus a dimmer switch. Even through Seven seasons, the boys still can come back to the same base settings, can't they?

-"Nothing in our lives is simple." That's putting it mildly.

-Between the killing for fresh meat to help her sick kid and killing her abusive mom before she could kill Sam, Amy's not so much morally grey as morally paisley. Maybe?

-Offering to clear up the body of your non-date's murder victim would be another jump in relationship level. A very scary relationship, but there's a hell of a lot of trust being thrown around for two kids who only just realized that kissing is quite nice and that theoretically they were supposed to be trying to kill each other.

-"Come with me." Ooo. Oooo. How old was Sam when he took off to wherever the hell it was, the shack with the dog? Flagstaff? Is that now?

-"We don't have to be alone. We can be freaks together, Sam." WEE!SAMMY WOOBIE FAAAAAAACE!!!

-Of course he can't. And ow.

-"You meet a girl, you feel that spark, there's nothing better, but this freak?" Yeah, some conversations you just have to walk away from.

-"Like I'm a grenade and you're waiting or me to go off." ...weeeeelllllll.... I mean I understand what kind of strain having people walk on eggshells around a person puts them under, but it's not like the combination of afflictions you're dealing with have a known established recovery path. Also, y'know, Lucifer. Who I still think could be something more than hallucination. At the same time, it's hard to relax and recover or do anything under constant eyebrow-raising scrutiny and judgement. So. Yeah. That.

-"I might be a freak, but that's not the same as dangerous." Yes indeed, very true.

-"I'm a grade A freak. But I'm managing it." Oh Sam.

-Is this, like, the first time ever that Sam has come completely clean about some kind of non-Dean approved plot or character development? Just out there, what's going on, what happened before, why he's inclined to believe her, how she's dealing with it, why she slipped, everything. Hm. I find Sam's lack of evasion... disturbing. Oddly.

-"You don't trust her, fine. Trust me." Awwwwww.

-"Okay."/"...Seriously?" Not helping yourself much there Sam.

-"Gotta start sometime, right?" Ow. And aw. And other less type-able noises containing W's.

-BIGGERSON'S! WITH THE PIE BAR! Is that the same external as from "Bad Day at Black Rock"? the parking lot looks like a similar configuration. Or are all Biggerson's the same location for shooting?

-Spokane! A city Vancouver can imitate accurately without breathing hard. Welcome to the Northwest, boys! \o/

-"You gonna punch me again?" Nope. That's only for stealing. *pats*

-...though really, there is too much time left on the counter and Dean is too relaxed for things not to go south in some way very soon.

-Hey! A NEW Impala transition shot, I think! Maybe? And, if they are on the right Lower Mainland road here, that whitish pointy thing in the distance might actually be Mount Ranier, in Washington State.

-...whaaaaat exactly are you up to Dean? *is suddenly very nervous*

-Oh shit. D-:

-Ohhhhh shit. Dean? D-:

-"But people... they are who they are, no matter how hard you try." Oh god. O.O (And why doesn't he think about that with regard to Sam? Sam is still Sam.)

-"But eventually the other shoe will drop." So much for trust and trusting Sam. I'mma go hide under my blanket now, okay? O.O

-"It always does. *squinch*" DDDD-8

-She bleeds pretty colours. O.O *rocks back and forth under blanket* Deeeean...


-Oh crap. Her kid. Does he even know what he is himself? I mean at that age if your mom feeds you pituitary glands every night and there's no killing involved, it's just dinner. That's just like, I dunno, the family comfort food being curried chicken hearts or something. Weird but not something you'd get killed for. Except that it's coming from humans. If she tells him where it's from. I don't even know. *rocks more*

-"You got someone you can go to?" Says the man standing over his mom with a bloody knife. O.O

-"You ever kill anyone?"/*headshake*/"Well if you do, I'll come back for you." O.O

-"The only person I'm gonna kill is you." Well. Okay. Right now? Good luck, kid.

-"Look me up in a few years." Yep. Just like you and Sam and John did with Yellow Eyes after he killed your mom. And I'm sure someone who's not mummified in a cheap poly-cotton blend blanket who has more brains than me has already meta'd that down to a fine paste.

-Hey, Dean just killed Amy Pond! Eleven and Rory are gonna be furious! As is actual Amy Pond, since that wasn't her. Heh. Eleven and Rory tearing off in an unholy fury to avenge Amy or something, while she's standing behind them in the console room going, "Um... boys? I'm right here."/"Hush Amy, we're trying to avenge you." :-D

-Ah, the Leviathan finally got to Whitefish. Doesn't have the super-secret 'everywhere is two hours away' driving spell the Impala's got. And that's a good thing.

-"Just grabbing a bite first." Right. Organs. Lot of organ eaters so far this season. With a side of tortilla chips, perhaps?

-"Everything is better with cheese." *quickly googles* Nope, the cheese slogan in Canada is 'All you need is cheese' and the US one... Can't find it. Regardless of whether that's a bit of product placement (though that nacho stuff is an edible oil product more than a cheese so I doubt any self-respecting dairy council would want it associated with their slogan) or not, I like this guy and hope that he doesn't get killed off too fast.

-Oh that's gonna hurt. Yeah. Any monster that kills someone with nacho cheese for fun is a monster that's going to make things interesting. Also, he used to work in a call centre. He's going to have some frustration to work off creatively. Like with nacho cheese!

So! Yeah. Ow on several levels, much not boding well. And again, Dean with issues of trust and faith. OW. O.O

...Dammit, now I want gas station nachos. :-P

-Heheh. I did not catch the epic cap of facepalming director creds. AWESOME.

-We saw Dean in a hospital bed in s4, On the Head of a Pin.

-People need to stop hitting Sam in the head! Those things are cumulative!! I've only had 2 concussions and I'm not allowed to HAVE any more!!

Riiiiight, I forgot about that due to the masses andd masses of angst in that scene being a distraction.

People need to stop hitting Sam in the head! Those things are cumulative!! I've only had 2 concussions and I'm not allowed to HAVE any more!!

I know! And you haven't even been traumatise in Hell! (...Or am I making an assumption there?) XD

Very enjoyable review! :D

OCD response moment: Have we had Dean in a hospital bed since the start of Season 2?

End of 4.16 On the Head of a Pin, after getting badly beaten by Alistair, and saved by demon-blood imbibing Sam. :)

Thank you. The angst in the scene must have been really distracting for me.

Doing my part

Just got back from Toronto Supernatural convention - used my 0.00002 seconds while getting my Jensen autograph to tell Jensen he can put the search lights back on the Impala because he is a director now. Also found out at convention CW is having a promotional Impala made, one that can really be driven. PS Loved the episode & your recaps

nice :)

Sam seems to spend a lot of time in closets with louvered doors, doesn't he? hmmm....

and Dean? you are an IDIOT. kill them both or kill neither, but never kill someone's mother and let the kid see your face in SPN-world. remember your long quest? YED? ya, that. *smacks upside the head*

They do make for dramatic lighting and easy hearing and sight of what's going on outside the door.

*smacks upside the head*

Yes, indeed. Though I doubt we'd see a hero character off a kid on the CW, it's not a very wise thing to do. It's in the Evil Overlord handbook as a no-no, even.

Love your picspam! "Sleepy bear" is my favorite.

His nose smushes quite adorably. Not many moments of unguarded cute for Dean in recent years. It reminded me of Sam waking him up a few times in season one.
feliciakw From: feliciakw Date: October 11th, 2011 08:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
The picspam has much that is delightful, and amuses me muchly.

The only thing I can comment on, though (because I didn't keep a running list of notes) is that the American cheese slogan is (or used to be) "Behold the power of cheese!"

There's also a meet-and-greet report wherein Jensen talks about that cheesy scene. It's really interesting.

I might have to write up a meta on the situation with Amy. Because there was no good solution to the situation. I understand why each of them did what they did, and I can't fault any of them. Oh, the moral ambiguity!

"Behold the power of cheese!"

I am now laughing so hard there are tears in my eyes. XD

I'm avoiding all con reports due to hints and spoilers, but I hope someone will do a spoiler-dump at the end of the year.

Oh, the moral ambiguity!

I know!! It's it great? Our show is one that makes people think about deep meaningful stuff sometimes! \o/

I am suprised mom didn't smack me when I started telling her anbout Kitsune. *facepalm* Dean and the boy at the end--that was Kill Bill all over, just saying;) Not sure if it was deliberate or not, but it was verrry close. I also share your paranoia about Leviathans. And Bobby has a contingency plan for EVERYTHING, of course he does. Mom and I also woofed when he came in a suit *cough*

I missed the fact Jensen directed it until Jared mentioned giving kudos to the director on Twitter--I suck:P The implications between Dean and Sam there at the end...*hides under duvet cover* Also, you made me laugh, and right now that is a very difficult prospect. Bless you.

All three boys can certainly rock a suit.

I know, it's very unnerving.

I really need to catch up on my flist, don't I?

Casting Jewel Staite as Amy *snerk* Pond was inspired, because she always tends to play these adorable girl next door types and is just so sympathetic. (She was in Stargate Atlantis too. And you reeeeeally need to see the awesomeness that is Firefly! And I just deleted something that might recommend it further to you at the risk of spoilering you!)

I literally could NOT concentrate through the whole, "Cool song," scene for trying to determine whether said cool song was indeed by the Goo Goo Dolls, at which point my head would have exploded. I did finally determine it was indeed Two Days in February by the Goo Goo Dolls and thankfully my head just popped a little bit.

Okay you seriously have me panicking that Bobby might be a Leviathan now. We need to keep an eye on his dietary choices.

Didn't like the ending much. Sam took a huge leap of faith putting his trust in Dean last week and Dean couldn't return the favour this week? I also think he totally would have ganked the kid if he was going to gank the mom. Shades of lady pregnant with Rugaru baby who ran off to be in Warehouse 13.

Also. Drugged Dean needs his own show.
feliciakw From: feliciakw Date: October 12th, 2011 02:53 am (UTC) (Link)
The first place I ever saw Jewel Staite was the short lived, too-brilliant-for-TV show Wonderfalls. She was the manipulating wife of the main character's love interest.

I think Dean not killing the kid is totally in character for Dean. He didn't kill the baby 'shifter because "it's still just a baby." He didn't kill Gary the body snatching kid, but "If you were of voting age, we would kill you." He warned Andy, "Be good, or we'll be back." He doesn't kill unless the thing has a track record of killing. (Demons being the obvious exception to that rule. All bets are off with demons.) I think the "don't kill unless they've killed first" is something he learned from Sam. Sort of like the maxim, "If they kill you, you kill them right back." Or something.

But yes, the whole situation brought to mind Travis and the rugarus.

It is your fault I was late for work this morning! I was just going to peek at my LJ friends page before I left and then your post was sitting there and I had to read it and I was cracking up and ...

I was late for work.

You have to not post them before I leave in the morning! :P
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: October 12th, 2011 03:06 am (UTC) (Link)
I am so sorry for the late for work thing. LJ refused to talk to my batch uploader so I had to upload and label all 175 caps manually before I could even start on the coding, so between that and having to go do the family T-day stuff in the middle, it went up terribly late. I hope you didn't get in trouble.

Kitsume? Kitsune? A Japanese fox-demon? But it stabs you behind the ear to get to your brain.

YES, THIS EXACTLY. The Kitsune thing bugged the crap out of me. They didn't even REFERENCE foxes. They're like "okay, so we have a monster that does this! . . . What the hell are we going to call it?" "I don't know, let's flip to a random page of this dictionary of mythical beasts." *flip flip flip flip* "Kitsune." "Sounds good, what is it?" "Who cares? Weeeee!"

Re: Winchester eyebrow communciation: "Hard to tell with Bobby; he's not a native Winchesterian eyebrow communicator, and also he speaks it with a hat."

That line was were I stopped pretending I was just gonna read one more line and then leave the house...

"the modifiers on that pickpocket roll would have been insane!"

I have played just enough D&D to LOL here!

"Amy's not so much morally grey as morally paisley."

I think I may have to steal the 'morally paisley' concept for use in real-life conversations...

I just have to say I love your brain! Even if it made me late for work :)

-It has words, I must cap it. Maximum of two visitors? Is that common in the US? My mom was in the hospital recently and I don't think she had less than three in the room very often.

In the US the rule is actually 2 visitors for the critical care/ICU units. The regular admission rooms don't have that restriction. It's *possible* Dean was put in Critical Care immediately postop because of the risk of infection for that open compound fracture. The open blinds make me think this is the case. Regular rooms just have the hanging curtain divider that can be swished open or block the view. In the ICU they keep the blinds open so the nurses can monitor what's going on. If you close the blinds you WILL have a nurse there very quickly to find out why. My ICU theory gets shot down, however, by the outside shot of Dean escaping his room on crutches. That's not an ICU unit. *handwaves*

-OH. 'KAY. Yeah, that's a definite debt warning. Widespread infiltration of Leviathans, quietly doing day to day things and gathering intel, and all knowing everything Castiel knew about the Winchesters. They are so screwed. YAY FOR EFFECTIVE ADVERSARY CHARACTERS!! \o/

I know, right? These Leviathans are worrisome because they are smart, adaptable and effective! I approve having a threat that feels real and a bit grounded in our world (in the sense of using human methods of tracking, etc).

-Is this, like, the first time ever that Sam has come completely clean about some kind of non-Dean approved plot or character development?

I would find it newer if Sam had come completely clean before getting caught up with by Dean instead of after he took off and tried to handle it all himself, deliberately trying to keep Dean out of the loop. But hey, baby steps of progress. *pats Sam on the head*

Dean with the faith and trust issues... yeah, that feels like it is going somewhere, or at least has come from somewhere legit, considering everything. He's not wrong in saying the other shoe always drops. Their history hasn't really taught a different lesson to take away there, has it? *chews fingernails*

I know. I'm worried about developments in next episode. I haven't seen any promo stuff, but Episode 4 usually has some big THING of significant thingness happen, often hidden in things of non-thingness.

You know, I've always wondered how people could call that cheese. And when watching the actual pouring of the cheese I was all *Clutches nearby pillow and flaps one hand* 'OWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW-Ohhhh....*Wince*'

Ah, I love your picspams. :D
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: October 12th, 2011 10:21 am (UTC) (Link)
The official term is 'edible oil product' I believe. I have direct experience of how nasty that stuff is for burning, so yeah, OW is right.

This recap made me happy, although when you were trying to work out who "Amy Pond" was I was yelling the answer at you. Apparently you can't hear me in cyberspace, anymore than Dean could hear me when I told him not to kill Amy. I adored this episode, right up to that moment. What does it mean for the trust between the boys, and what's this whole 'waiting for the other shoe' thing that Dean's got going? Trust your (hallucinating and probably brain-damaged) Sammy!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: October 12th, 2011 10:23 am (UTC) (Link)
I know. Given the number of people I know who like Firefly, I'm surprised how long it took me to recognize her.

Trust issues for Winchesters, eh? Who'da thunk it. XD
