Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 7.09
Contains profanity, capslock, meta and speculation.

Spoiler and Theory Summary

No spoilers. \o/

....but this is the episode before a one-week gap, I believe, so I'm thinking there's going to be either a bombshell or a set up for a bombshell. I'm thinking it's about time we had a nibble or two on the Castiel line, since I believe this lump of tan something...
Photo 1
...on the right hand side in the trunk of the Challenger is Castiel's trenchcoat.

Sneaky sneaky show, keeping the hope alive.

Afterwards, ETA: Or in some cases, not so much. O.O

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 7.09 - ??? "How To Win Friends And Influence Monsters"

-Skipping the THEN, getting more tea.

-Helloooo monster-cam! long time no see!

-The Pine Barrens, New Jersey... OMG, is it the Jersey Devil??? Cooool. Let's see what they do with it.
Photo 2

-Aren't these people supposed to be camping? My apartment is less well-furnished than their tent-trailer or whatever this is. :-P
Photo 3

-"This is Nature Sounds." BWAHAHAHAAH. Okay, yeah. These guys are practically asking to get eaten. Dude is a heavy sleeper though, not to wake up while getting hauled up into a tree.

-Bwahahahaahah. Title.
Photo 4

-Cool to see them setting up in an abandoned house. Hotels get expensive, even with a fraudulent credit card, (not that I'd know personally) and since Leviathans are tracking all their old aliases and they've been issued the very sensible edict of cash only to avoid getting traced, I see a lot of abandoned house-squatting in the boys' future. (Yes, "boys'" includes Bobby. I don't care how much older than me he is, he's one of the boys.)

-*blocks guest names*

-Aw, Dean with the cold everything. Poor wubby. *wraps in a blanket and feeds him soup* And he looks so like wee!Dean there. Aw.
Photo 5

-"We're on our third 'the world's screwed' issue in what, three years?" Heeeeeeeee, Dean's metaing.

-"Stop tryin' to wrestle with the big picture, son, you're gonna hurt your head." Heeeeee.
Photo 6

-Yay! Jersey Devil! The artist's rendition seems a bit cave-troll inspired, but that's okay. Traditionally it's a bit more 'stretched-out goat with wings' and a little less 'WWF: Extreme Middle-Earth Smackdown' but it's all good.
Photo 7

-Written by Ben Edlund. With the Jersey Devil? Oh this should be loaded with crack.

-"Oh yeah, a horse's head." Goat, but whatever. That's the usual picture. Also, Sam's member name at "Open minds to Deeper Knowledge" is 'quester'. (Wasn't that the name of the elf in the 80's video game called Gauntlet? And has he used that before?) Also, they might be saving money on hotel rooms but they are spending it like water on colour printing.
Photo 8

-Directed by Guy Bee. *nods*

-Yeeaaaaah. Edlund.
Photo 9

-HIIIII BIGGERSON'S, HIIII! *waves at the screen at the fictional restaurant like a total psycho*
Photo 10

-Tie report. Blue-grey with compound silvery stripes going down to Sam's left on Sam, Deep red with blue stripes going down to Dean's right on Dean. Pretty opposite as far as ties go, but they've got some issues to work out yet so that's to be expected. The way they are seated right now also has the slopes going down towards the middle which always feels more working-togethery to me, even while they're at odds. Also, I don't know whether Dean's got a new suit-jacket, but he's looking exceptionally broad-shouldered this evening.
Photo 11

-"The human burrito!" He's got a rather unusual amount of glee for someone who found a messy corpse. Hm. Could be he's just soaking up all the media attention he can get and being glad people are talking to him instead of being stuck out in a remote ranger station. Any bets on whether he's the next victim? Yeah, that's what I thought too.
Photo 12

-"Come to think of it, I haven't seen Phil in a couple days." *facepalm* Yeah. When a marauding whatsis is out eating anything with a heartbeat, keeping track of your only co-worker in a remote location might be a good idea.

-"I should probably report that." Yes. Yes you should. Yeesh.

-BOBBY INNA TRENCHCOAT!!! \o/ If this were a drinking game, that'd be worth a bottle.
Photo 13

-So much love for Bobby eliminating three types of monster based on the leftovers, including name-tagging Wendigos and werewolves, which we haven't heard from for a while. NOW. BOBBY tie report. Dark brown with itty-bitty lighter spots. The boys' ties might be in dispute, but Bobby's is remaining neutral and not taking sides. A very wise tie.
Photo 14

-"Do I look lie a freakin' hostess?" YES! Finally, a server who's not freakishly perky or social! A bit far along the opposite end of the spectrum, but hey, the show has some pretty severe happy, smiling drones to balance out. Yay Brandon, I hope you aren't the monster (so of course you will be)! \o/
Photo 15

-"I sure hope we don't get Brandon's section." And their reactions are just, Hee! Oh my god, I love this show.
Photo 16

-Big Bird, Ken Doll and Creepy Uncle. BIG BIRD, KEN DOLL AND CREEPY UNCLE. You know, I think back in the waybacks before I became enlightened to the awesomeness of Bobby, I mentioned somewhere that he reminded me of a creepy uncle, but as I say, I was unenlightened at the time. That said, Brandon really doesn't give a crap about his tip. XD

-18%? Wow. Either Sam's a great tipper or someone changed the percentages and didn't tell me.

-Bobby. Chopsticks. Oh my god, it's like I don't even know him, all these hidden depths keep showing up.
Photo 17

-"Birds shoved up inside each other." "Chinese chicken geezer salad." "Perfect storm of your top three edible birds." I'm just going to sit here and wheeze through this entire scene, okay?

-No shock Brandon quitting there, and based on the snippet of conversation, I won't be too heartbroken if he gets eaten, or turns out to be the monster and gets shot.

-Ah, lovely scenery in these woods. Boys with long-guns.
Photo 18

-And again, Bobby busting out some mundane hunting knowledge. Unseen depths, seriously.
Photo 19

Photo 20
Photo 21

-Hmm. Bobby is wearing a very notably blue hat, considering everything else everyone is wearing is nature-toned. Well, I guess they're wearing jeans that are blue too, but I don't know, it's quite blatant in its blue-ness. That looks like a hat fraught with significance. *nods*

-"You don't shoot Bambi, jackass. You shoot Bambi's mother." Oh my goodness that is an epic Sammy bitchface right there. Hee! Well-deserved too, considering the Mom issues.
Photo 22

-"Hey. I think we found Phil." Okay, this guy is definitely way too calm.
Photo 23

-"Ranger, I think we've got company."/"Yeah? Who's that?" Born monster chow, this one.
Photo 24

-"RANGER EVANS!" Helloooooooo bellowing Sammy. Haven't seen you in a while. Don't be such a stranger.

-"Shut up, shut off and listen." ...as the sound effects crew goes to town! Can't cap a sound effect but have a Dean reaction face! \o/
Photo 25

-"Man, I liked Rick." Somehow, not surprised.

Photo 26

-And this is, I believe, an effective demonstration of the term 'pwned.' 'Chinese chicken geezer salad' that, Dean. *hi fives Bobby* WOOOOOOOO!!! \o/
Photo 27

-"Not even a silver bullet, just a bullet bullet." *checks counter* Yeah, that's not gonna take. Or there's more than one.
Photo 28

-Ahahahahahahaha! Yeah. No, it didn't take. XD

-So, becoming a Jersey Devil or whatever ramps the metabolism off the charts, kind of like a Wendigo, I guess, so that explains how five-nine and nothing guy here manages to eat his body-weight in human without it showing. Hummingbird metabolism of a sort. *nods and handwaves the several dozen pounds of undigestible fibers, bones, metal and plastic clothing bits, jewelry, fillings etc the guy also inhales with the rest of the body that have to go somewhere*

-Hey, I wonder if anyone aware of creatures like that goes around looking for manure piles full of gold fillings and jewelry. Ew, ew, ew, ew, sorry.

-Tonight on Supernatural, Amateur Monster Autopsy! I really have to admit, I like that they're getting all sciencey-researchy-lab projecty about this. Practical. Also that ooze looked a little like Leviathan goop, only lighter, so yeah, something to check out.
Photo 29

-At some point in time, something with claws nearly got Bobby's notably blue hat. Seriously, that thing is giving me "fraught with significance" vibes... *is nervous*
Photo 30

-"You guys getting hungry?" ...Okay... is Dean... infected by this stuff or something? Or just being very intensely Dean. Maybe that Turducken burger was a trap...
Photo 31

-*skips over soooo many things* Those are some freaking huge adrenal glands. In other news, distressed!amateur!Coroner Sam is pretty.
Photo 32

-"It's not the Jersey Devil, but it sure as hell ain't Gerald Brouder anymore." Well, yeah, he's a bit far off the lore. This reeeeeally doesn't bode well for Dean. Aw. and they're using a Biggerson's as a vector for monsterizing people? But nothing bad ever happens at Biggerson's! ...except that whole Famine killing everyone thing. And Bela stealing the rabbit's foot... yeah, okay, so Biggerson's is a bit of a trouble magnet.

-Aaaaand another Turducken burger for Dean. Oh dear.
Photo 33

-Dean: *makes random monstery growly noise while eating* Me: *laughs up a lung* I can't cap his face! It's too blurry! Cutest "turning slowly into a monster that will eat everything" face ever!

-*laughs up the other lung* "Is that right? do rat's shake their ass or is it somethin' else?" Oh sleepy food-stoned monster-turning Dean is too adorable for his own good.
Photo 34

Photo 35

-"Cas, black goo, I don't even care anymore. And you know what's even better? I don't care that I don't care." Yeaaaah, you're just fine, Dean. Now somebody restrain him before he starts biting people?
Photo 36

-Dean: *uncappable headbobble* Me: *dies of snerk* I really needed silly. Thank you, Show.

-Aughhhhhhh. Reminds me of the lunches at the high school cafeteria. Particularly that one day they tried to make Cornish pasties. Just one day. Never again.
Photo 37

-"I think you pissed off my sandwich." *headdesk* BWAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Also, add another scene to the 'stuff to watch while dieting' list. Add the whole episode actually.
Photo 38

-"Whatever turned Gary Brouder into a pumpkin head, and is currently turning Dean into an idiot-"/"I'm here. Right here." *laughs and laughs*
Photo 39

-"If I wasn't so chilled out right now, I would puke." Is it terribly wrong of me to say that I love stoned!Dean and wish we could get more of him? Though, you know, turning into a murdery monster is not a good thing, and Sam very obviously doesn't agree with me.
Photo 40
Photo 41

-"Aren't you full up playin' Snuffalupagus with the Devil?" *grins all over everything*

-"Seein' Lucifer's fine with me."/"Come again?" Oh really?
Photo 42

-"At least all my crazy's under one umbrella." Okay. Feeling slightly reassured about Sam being so calm. But still...
Photo 43

-"You always were one deep little sonofabitch." Hee. I could just flail endlessly over the Bobby-and-boys backstory and dynamics coming out tonight. Also, it's making me a wee bit nervous. *eyes the hat*
Photo 44
Photo 45

-What colour is Ms. Imminent Monster Chow's hair? Whatever that's called, I really like it. Kind of unique, and suits her.
Photo 46

-Hi uncappable attack!Brandon! Shouldn't have had the free Turducken sandwich at work. Also, if you plan on stalking your meals from now until you die, you should ditch the glowy flashy things on your suspenders. Not good for stealth, although our interesting-haired target of the evening seems to have looked right at you and missed it.

-Hello mysterious booted person with... Jersey plates which is where we are, so no hint there. Edgar maybe?

-Yep! Hi Edgar!
Photo 47

-Nice when the Person in peril/Monster of the week comes with flashing lights and a name-tag.
Photo 48

-"What the hell is going on?" Leviathans are plotting, yay! Why kill everyone yourselves when you can make them kill each other? The boys are so used to dealing with straight-up in your face monsters that a monster with a strategy throws them a massive curve ball. They have some serious catching up to do.

-Hi Leviadoc! Ah ha! And they had a hospital taken over, so the whole biowarfare development division had a launching point and the Winchesters are so screwed! It's so good to see a genuine challenge or them.
Photo 49

-"Burn them." *shudders* Edgar is a scary bastard. O.O
Photo 50

-Okay, so the goal wasn't to turn humans into out of control murdery monsters... Hm.... What was the goal then...? Just gotta say, I love this! Strategy and labs and organization and all that stuff, and we're getting glimpses of what they're doing without being told what they're doing and the Winchesters are totally unprepared for any of it and it's GREAT!!! \o/

-"Dick's coming."/"Burn them." Eeeeeek. O.O
Photo 51

-"Inbetween that and the 20 cups of coffee I'm nicely tense and alarmed." Yeah, ain't it great! \o/

-"Don't go all Sigmund Freud on me, I just got drugged by a sandwich." HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

-*nods through conversation* Yep. Burnout. Grief-related, saving the world over and over related, wondering if your little brother's going to go psycho related burnout. He's only about 20 years overdue, I think he's done pretty good to keep it as together as he has until now.

-"You're not a person."/"Thanks." Smirky-face Dean. That is all.
Photo 52

-"I been to enough funerals, I mean it." Oh Bobby. *smishes*
Photo 53

-"You die before me and I'll kill ya." OH BOBBEEEEEEEEEE!!!! *SMISHES* (Though really he probably should have said "You die before me again some more and I'll kill ya." Accuracy is important. *nods*)

-Chin wibbles! DEAN HAD CHIN WIBBLES! Yes they were hesitating before speaking wibbles instead of anything else, but those were wibbles! Even though they don't show in the cap.
Photo 54

-"Well I'll be a squirrel in a skirt." I was going to say 'Aunt Slappy?' (from Animaniacs) but she just had a hat and a handbag.

-Someone in the "making titles for fake news coverage" department is twelve I see. XD Also, Evil Tie Report, big evil Dick is still rocking the mutant paisley tie of evil. Consistency. Evil consistency. *nods*
Photo 55

-HAHAHAHAHA, oh I'm sorry, I really truly am, but oh god the Photoshop, it burns. That last one's not too bad except for that bit of missing 'e' by Dick's ear that makes me wonder if they aren't deliberately making these manips look odd, but still. XD
Photo 56
Photo 57
Photo 58

-Yep, Dick Roman's a big shot. In short, he's well-placed to fund and/or take over any assets or infrastructure they might need and capable of having a significant amount of personal defense, and the Leviathans have him. THIS IS HOW THE DEMONS SHOULD HAVE DONE THINGS. But, chaotic evil versus lawful evil. Or backstabbing selfish evil versus team-playing smart evil. Either way, it's an excellent strategic move, and the boys are totally screwed. Especially since they are sitting in the van next to the evil turducken factory watching documentaries on YouTube.
Photo 59

-"It'll pick up vocal vibrations from window glass at half a mile." TOOOYYYYYYYYYS!!!!! *grabby hands*
Photo 60

-"Now what can you tell me about your failures?" HEHEHEHE. Yeah. Because it's experimental, and the failures are as useful as the successes, and there are always failures. Edgar might be a ruthless bastard, but he's not an experimental scientist. Don't burn the failures, save them for research and analysis.
Photo 61

-Also, Evil Tie 2, same mutant paisley pattern, different colour. Did wardrobe get all the ties with that pattern or what? And if they did, that means the ties are planned you guys! :-O

-Yep, a catchy headline will get noticed all right.
Photo 62

-"I want to turn this mistake into a big fat teachable moment. Will you help me with that?"/"Well, yeah!" And that's when Leviadoc gets eaten as an example to the others not to cover up test results and not to let testing outside of lab conditions until the margin for error is a bit more locked down, right?
Photo 63
Photo 64

-I don't know why, but super-spy-gear Bobby lurking on a roof with binoculars does things to me. I'm not sure what things. Just things. Good things.
Photo 65

-"The golden rule is there's no such thing as monsters. Anything stirs their little pots to the contrary very bad for our plans." Oh reeeeeeally. So, uh, does this mean that the best way to stop the Leviathans is for Sam, Dean, Bobby and every other hunter to out themselves and the things they hunt in as widespread a manner as possible? Because that could be one hell of a lot of fun.

-"I will give anything to make this right."/"I know you will." And he gets eaten now, yeah? Or messily slaughtered.

-"You're bibbing me?" AHahhahahahaha. Oh Edlund. XD

-"Now I have officially seen it all." Ooooooor they'll make him eat himself. Ew. ...How does that work. Does that send him back to Purgatory? Do they each have a little dimensional rift in them? Or... I don't know if I want to ponder the other options. O.o

-OH CRAP! BOBBYYYYY! When you're lurking around and focusing on what you're spying on, don't forget to keep an eye out and keep hidden! ACK! O.O
Photo 66
Photo 67

-"There are at least four Leviathans out there, we don't even know how to kill one." Yes you do! Though if this is a Leviathan building and they haven't told their cleaning crews 'absolutely no Borax'... hey... The Leviathans don't know about it do they? Leviachef didn't... did they find out about it after the police station? If two of their own got melted, they should have at least dragged the remains back to the lab to figure out why. Hmm. In any case, convenient cleaning van. Oh and Sam, Dean, Bobby? WHY DO YOU NOT HAVE BORAX SUPER-SOAKERS YET??? Seriously!

-"I imagine you appreciate guns."/"I'd appreciate one right about now." So much love for the Bobby versus Dick snark-off type-thing.
Photo 68
Photo 69

-"I clearly ain't worth the extra time I'm getting here." Oh Bobby. Oh god, I bet you're being used as bait. O.O

-You know, for a guy who's full of evil black goop from the dawn of time? Dick Roman's kind of hot.
Photo 70

-"I bet your friends are on the way to rescue the damsel." And such a fetching damsel he is. *scritches his adorably scruffy beard*
Photo 71

-"Naw, they're too smart. They know they don't have the numbers. It'd be suicide. I've run my race." HA. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. HA. Smart doesn't enter into it, dude. You're one of their few friends, not to mention their best friend, really, and their surrogate father-figure. They can't not rescue you, no matter how inadvisable it is.

-"Could die worse." Yeah, I suppose getting eaten is quick at least... unless they make a copy. And send it along with the boys. And make you watch. And then eat you. Buuuut then you can haunt the hell out of them and try to warn Sam and Dean and BOBBY IS TOTALLY NOT GOING TO DIE HERE, RIGHT GUYS???? That blue hat is suddenly making me very, very, very nervous. O.O
Photo 72

-Yay! Spray things of Borax! TAKE THEM WITH YOU FOR NEXT TIME.
Photo 73

-Also machetes would be good. Head chopping and taking along in a bag would be handy instead of just temporarily inconveniencing them.

-Yes Bobby, the halls are alive with the sound of dumbass Winchesters coming to rescue you, just like they have to, because they're awesome and you're awesome, and you'd do the same for them, no matter how stupid and inadvisable and "oh golly let's walk straight into this trap" it is.
Photo 74

-Fortunately, Dick Roman is having a moment of poor tactics and leaving the stronghold room where he has a handy hostage and some weapons to check out his dying underlings. Unless it's not a tactical gaffe and Bobby's already a Leviathan. Eeek. O.O

-Nope! GO ACTION BOBBY!!! \o/
Photo 75
Photo 76

-Oh crap. Bobby's hyperventilating about something he's reading. EEK! Also JUST TAKE THE FILES! Or is that a trap too. Leave the captive in the room with the obvious Briefcase O' Plans and have him snoop it and escape, when the briefcase is 100% full of disinformation. Crap. It's what I'd do if I were the mean GM at this moment. *flails*

-Right, fine, you're gonna show me plans and maps Bobby's hyperventilating over, I'm gonna cap them and true to figure them out. Looks like wiring schematics and the map has... *pulls up Google maps* Toledo, Ohio, where Kripke is from and, hehe. Madison, Wisconsin. I think there's a fan or two in that area, maybe? ;-D So, wiring diagrams, Madison and Toledo. Assuming this isn't all disinformation, I have no idea what's alarming Bobby.
Photo 77

-Marching up to the door of the room you are being held captive in and opening it without even checking for a guard, not so smart. Bobby must be really rattled. Or more used to the direct in your face approach. Which gets him a fist directly in the face.

-She's like the liquid metal Terminator! Hee!
Photo 78

-Whoa, special effects and CGI got to play with the wounds. *rolls it back and watches Dick's eye grow back in a few times* Awesome!

-*watches the entire Action!Bobby escapes with the boys scene a few times over* GLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! \o/

-"Hey Bobby. Your hat."

Photo 79




*hyperventilates* O.O

-But... Oh god. There's... It's not... Oh...
Photo 80

And suddenly everything is so very much worse.

Photo 81
Photo 82

Oh god. D-:

Soooooo, I'm just going to sit here meeping in the dark and really hoping for a skull graze. Which, you know, puts Bobby in a coma and makes him unable to deliver the plot until an appropriately dramatic juncture, since neither of these guys are going to think to use Dreamroot, ever, and Bobby will eventually be fine and dandy (or maybe come out of it blind since they showed us his mad Zen Rifle/'shoot you through the trees in the dark with my eyes closed' skillz) and stuff, yep, it's just a graze or a fracture and a coma for an appropriately dramatic length of time, even though he did have a heart-to-heart with both Winchester boys this episode and that totally doesn't matter because BOBBY IS NOT DEAD NOT DEAD NOT DEAD SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP LALALALALALALA.



*all the wibbles*

I am stunned that the blue hat clued you in to the pending tramatic end of the episode! How do you do that? Your mind must be an incredible place!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: November 22nd, 2011 04:39 am (UTC) (Link)
It stood out. It was just a bit too blue, and with the scratches it was like they wanted it to be noticed. Most of Bobby's hats blend in with the rest of his wardrobe, and this one didn't, particularly in a situation where he might have been more likely to pick a hat that was more earthy and suitable for lurking around in the bush. Bobby has boatloads of earthy hats, and that one was blue. So, it jumped out at me.

All that said, I can't believe I'm going to get more use out of this icon this season. It even has a (different) blue hat.

-18%? Wow. Either Sam's a great tipper or someone changed the percentages and didn't tell me.

Yup. It is my understanding that here in the States tipping percentages have migrated from the old 15% for good/regular service to a standard of 18% for good/regular service. 15% percent is for tightwads or somewhat subpar service, and 20% is for great service. More and more restaurants are now even helpfully giving you the percentage dollar amount options right on your printed receipt, so it's an easier call to make. I kid you not.

-"If I wasn't so chilled out right now, I would puke." Is it terribly wrong of me to say that I love stoned!Dean and wish we could get more of him? Though, you know, turning into a murdery monster is not a good thing, and Sam very obviously doesn't agree with me.

I think it should be a staple item on SPN -- just like the 'Sam's getting choked again, must be Friday' thing. At least once every several episodes we should be treated to Dean getting whammied by a MOTW and allowed to just -- be chilled for a little time out. Ackles was hysterical!

The Bobby thing -- I saw the foreshadowing for this back in 7.02, with Dean's phone call to Bobby. I have no idea if he survives or not, but I worry about this foreshadowing. I worry a lot. Stupid blue hat.

15% percent is for tightwads or somewhat subpar service, and 20% is for great service.

Wow. I don't go to restaurants much at all, so I have no idea if it's similar here.

Dean getting whammied by a MOTW and allowed to just -- be chilled for a little time out.

Oh absolutely, the boy needs a break now and then.

I saw the foreshadowing for this back in 7.02, with Dean's phone call to Bobby.

I've been seeing foreshadowing for something like this since season 2 or 3 and they still managed to shock me. I'm hoping, but given the way the season has been going, isolating the Winchesters from their usual assets, allies and practices (Castiel, Impala, fake IDs etc) , Bobby is one of the few allies and friends they have left. I'm just hoping a temporary coma is going to be enough of an isolation for the writers.

I am so glad I made this icon. I'm probably going to over-use it during the next two weeks.

I swear to god, something weird happened to you when you were six months old because you ALWAYS pick out something ridiculously significant like the hat! I didn't even notice it was a hat we'd not seen before!

Apparently the guy who plays Dick was one of the kids who played Doctor Zee in Galactica 1980. Bizarre. I also think he looks a bit like David Tennant. Even more bizarre.

And how can you not like Cornish pasties???? Dean would like Cornish pasties.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: November 22nd, 2011 04:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't know why, but that hat was yelling 'notice me!!'

I like Cornish pasties. Just not the rock-hard brownish-grey oozing things the high school cafeteria was calling cornish pasties. They required chiseling to get into, and had nothing but nastiness inside. I've had better ones since and they're very good.

Thanks. i love your posts. I figure that I don't even have to catch up and watch the episodes anymore. I can just come here and read your stuff.
Much more entertaining than the real show!!

The Plan

I simply can't deal with the Bobby peril, so I'll focus on something I can deal with--the Leviathans evil plan. I don't think the plans were a fake, I think Dick left Bobby alone with them because he has no respect for humans (or maybe he wanted some garlic sauce). Anyways, as you noted there were some wiring diagrams, a blue print and some maps. The blue print was industrial, some kind of factory. One map was of Federal lands and and oil and gas fields. Another map was of Federal lands and power plants. The map you noted with the red marks at Toledo and Madison, actually had five marked sites, one in Southern California and the other two in the middle of the country--one possibly in Missouri. With these things in mind had an idea--nuclear terrorism. There's a big plant in Toledo, and Madison is ringed with 2 or maybe 3 small ones (1 at Univ Wisc and anther at Green Bay), there's also one in S. Cal near San Diego, i think San Onofrio? So maybe they intend to blow a few plants, maybe set a few oil/gas fields ablaze--bring us to our knees. I'm not sure if they've thought ahead to the potential harm if they consume our irradiated meat. In any event they must be stopped!.

PS--I think secret agent Bobby was awesome--even if he did drop the file and get shot in the head.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: November 23rd, 2011 05:22 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: The Plan

Thanks for the details there. They way they're running things right now, I'm not sure how that would play into their plans, unless they're going to claim it was a massive terrorist attack to get the humans further under control through fear.

I've been mulling over some thoughts since watching the episode, and will be making a spec post shortly.

And yes, Bobby is always awesome. And ALIVE.

Re: The Plan

Totally interested in your spec post and your thoughts on the Levia and their plans for us--could you post a link here, I'm new to this site and haven't quite got the hang of navigating yet

Back to Bobby's total awesomeness--loved his heart to hearts with the boys. Comparing Dean to Anne Sexton--priceless and even more so because Dean would have .000000001% chance of knowing what it meant.(Bobby our little backwoods intellectual) And comparing Sam's relationship with Lucifer to Big Bird's (thank you Brandon) to Snuffleupagus was also priceless.

Question--why aren't they carrying borax and machetes/swords at all times--they seem quite aware of being hunted by the levia? I think supersoakers would be a good choice--also I'm sure Bobby or Dean should be able to adapt some paintball guns to effective use. Or lure them into a building rigged with borax laced sprinklers (a la Salvation) or outdoor sprinklers (a la No Rest for the Wicked) or hijack some heavy equipment --an oil tank truck and a high pressure hose should be able do some damage.

Also, question--why was Bobby alone snooping on the levia? Shouldn't one or both of the boys have been there to cover him given wearing those gigantic noise cancelling earphones he couldn't possibly have heard the levia sneaking up on him? I know, I know the better to advance the plot, but I hate it when they advance the plot at the expense of making the boys look dumb which they are not.

If you click on a person's user name, it usually takes you to their LJ main page, with most recent entries displayed, and many people will have a navigation post or index at the top of their main page for finding their older things.

As to your questions, they also never had Holy Water in Super Soakers to use against the demons, or 'borrowed' a truck that spreads de-icing salt on the road to use against ghosts. They just haven't thought of it yet, or there are technical issues that make it impractical (for the world or for filming), or because the writers haven't included it.

All the awesome that is Bobby, and wonderful backstory and...trenchcoat *cough* conspired to give me a feeling of doom. And then..errr...*shivers in the corner under a blanket* Everything is fine, nothing nothing tra la la.

Jim has been posting lovely pics from Japan on Twitter. He went into a shop and was invited to a harvest festival by some farmers. This surprises me not at all;)

Did I mention the denial? I cannot even...*synapses stop firing*

We're all about denial around here, yes indeedy.

y'know, Jared makes some _really_ great faces :)

Bobby is just fine. Fine fine fine. Can't be anything else. Just fine. Annoyed about his hat I'm sure, but just fine.

Oh totally, Dick might have been an evil goop monster from the dawn of time organizing global domination and such-like and eating people and all that before, but now he's gone and shot Bobby's hat. Bobby's gonna tear his head off.

Well. Glad I didn't watch this until this morning because I have less time to worry and cry until the next episode.

Your recaps are excellent as always. I haven't commented on them much because I am so late to the game watching but I've been reading them all and enjoying them immensely. :)

Aw, thank you. I was wondering where you were and thinking the speculation might be a bit too pervasive. :-/

This was a mean episode for a cliffhanger, but Bobby's going to be fine, so it's all good. *crossing fingers, knocking wood*

Well I admit I appreciate the double cuts for your spec! You are too good at seeing all the minor details that my "look at Dean's sweet face" brain ignores. LOL Way too intuitive for my book. :D
