Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 7.11
(I'm a bit sick and quite under-slept, so this one might be rather short and shallow.)

Contains profanity, capslock, meta and speculation.

Spoiler and Theory Summary

Something about Sam and Dean having to look after the kid of a missing hunter. Title, Adventures in Babysitting.

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 7.11 - "Adventures in Babysitting"

I'm going to try to go back to the old way of doing these, where I watch the whole thing through, then go back and react.

Yeah, right.

-Hey a montage? Cool! "Riding the Storm Out" by... heh. Reo Speedwagon. "He sings it from the hair."

-"Idjits." *wibble* Ah yes. We had Bobby's side of that, but not Sam and Dean's. So we'll be starting with some fearsome ow, right?

-After the pre-credits fodder is killed off, that is. Hey, this guy looks familiar, but I'm not sure where from. [He was apparently a regular on DaVinci's Inquest, and its later spin-off, which played for years in Canada, I never actually watched, but had commercials on every ten minutes, just about.]
Photo 1

-Ah. Knife. Guess this is our hunter about to go missing.

-Interesting overhead shot. Makes me think the shadows are going to start acting up.
Photo 2

-Marlene the waitress. Why not?
Photo 3

-"I slipped a little special sauce into your coffee while you were watching the skirt." The skirt. Is she from the 50's?

-Another kitsune? No, they had purple eyes.
Photo 4

-"That's for the crappy tip." Always tip your waitstaff well, in case they turn out to be monsters who will eat you.
Photo 5

-"Week One" Ohhh crap. I have a bad feeling this is going to be a lot more painful than anticipated. Oh boooooooys. :-(
Photo 6

-"Week Two" That is a big-ass glass of booze.
Photo 7

-And they're still missing the final number.
Photo 8

-"Week Three" Wall of weird. Frank's working on the numbers. Sam wants to know if they should be telling people about Bobby. Dean is a MASSIVE WALL OF DENIAL. So. Y'know. Same old.

-"Is Bobby Singer there?" Yeah, letting people know would have prevented that. Though all things considered, the frequency most hunters and associates trawl the obituaries as a matter of routine, you'd think word would have already spread.
Photo 9

-"He's... not here." Hm. They aren't saying dead. Maybe he still is in that coma. Although the total brain death ending of the last episode would seem to make that a not-better possibility.

-Written by Adam Glass, directed by Jeannot Szwarc... pretty sure that's a new name in the director's chair.

-"You probably drank it without noticing." Not a good sign. Or you have a clurichaun. Or Bobby's hanging out as a ghost and drinking your beer. Yeah, it's Bobby. [Going back after, Dean picks up the full bottle, yaks at Sam, then holds up the empty. No chance at all to drink any of it. It's totally Bobby's ghost. *nods*]
Photo 10

-"He's passed away." Yeah, it's hard to say out loud for the first while.
Photo 11

-"If your dad said you can trust Bobby, then you can trust me too." Ignore any rumours your dad might have passed along about the Winchesters, particularly that stuff about the Apocalypse and going to Hell. And that bit about Sam being a ruthless killer for a while when he had no soul. No worries.

-Salesman. Heh.

-That's not the Impala is it. Still? I guess it's practical, except for the driving around in other noticeable classic cars makes benching the Impala kind of moot. *growls*
Photo 12

-Looks like Frank's vapor. Or the Grinch. 'On the walls he left nothing but hooks, and some wire.' Heh.
Photo 13

-Frank says hello with guns, have you noticed? Most sensible thing to do when the world is inundated with creatures that could be literally anyone. Aim first, apologize later.
Photo 14

-Oh crap, my screen colour must be off for a second there that looked black. *headdesk*
Photo 15

-All right, it's not the Impala, it's not the Challenger. The head lights look Chevy. There's a word on the back side panel that starts with s and that angled trim thing looked deliberate rather than falling-off, so... no idea.
Photo 16

-"You think it's easy to see this deep into what's real and also be bipolar with delusional ideation? There is no pill for my situation, sweetie-pop." Aw, Frank. Yeah, that totally sucks. :-/

-"Days, weeks, quit bustin my chops." Frank is kind of awesome. Of course this means he's going to die.
Photo 17

-"This is not a friendship, Frank! I'm paying you!" A whole hell of a lot, too. Many people don't make that much in a year.

-"Hey, maybe I'm missing a number." YAY FRANK! \o/
Photo 18

-COORDINATES! I think most of us called that one, eh? But... hey. He's got the last number wrong. It was a five! According to Google Maps, that's about a 10 mile difference. That's going to turn into something interesting later.
Photo 19

-"A field, in Wisconsin." Poor Dean. He's truly going to lose his mind, isn't he?
Photo 20

-"Or if we're stupid, we go there and set up surveillance." I'm guessing that's a token 'if' and a non-self-inclusive 'we'.
Photo 21

-"Or a vampire." Heh heh heh. Sam's face.
Photo 22

-"That usually gets at least a chuckle." Wrong audience, dude, but there's no way you'd know that. XD

-"Relax. It's a field, not the Death Star." Wait for it.
Photo 23

-"Since when do you read?" Don't be a dick, Sam. Also, hey, solo tie report at the moment, that lovely complex one with the red-shading-to-black big bars and the white-edged pale blue narrow bars down to Sam's left. He's worn this one a few times before. I'm thinking complex social thingy tie, because I think one of the last times was in the interview scenes during that episode with the mannequins and all the social nastiness behind that. If I recall correctly. And he's just found the girl's dad dead by monster, and is going to have to go deal with her in some way because she's had way too many lines, sets and character establishment to be shuffled off to social services off-screen now.
Photo 24

-"Three missing truckers and one blood-free body." Wait, was that her dad or wasn't it? I'm confused. I'm blaming the cold medication.

-"Come and get your costume on and we can scoot." Dean, so thrilled by costumes.
Photo 25

-"What the hell's so special about this place?" It's super-saturated compared to the rest of the show for one, which is never a good sign. Also, I'm getting a crop-circle feeling, even though there's not really a crop. What are the fairies up to these days anyway?
Photo 26

-"Now get up in that cherry-picker and act like you're fixing something." Heee. Coveralls work.
Photo 27

-"I dunno how to drive that thing!"/"You think I do?" Ha! When picking a cover story, make sure you pick one where you do not require specialized knowledge to fake it. Actually, unless they've changed a lot in the past 20 years, the control are pretty much a joystick and an up-down button.

Photo 28
Photo 29

-Awww, sleepy Dean. Practical though. "I'll take the first shift."/*instant sleep* It's like a post-hypnotic suggestion.
Photo 30

-Vitala. Sounds like specialty shampoo from a hair salon. I don't think these truckers are being killed by an eco-friendly dairy either.

-Oh a vEtala. Hang on. Vetala are ghosts/evil spirits from Hindu mythology that take possession of corpses. No mention of silver knives getting stuck anywhere, just holy mantras... ooo... "Being unaffected by the laws of space and time, they have an uncanny knowledge about the past, present, and future and a deep insight into human nature." Wouldn't it be fun if the show decided to play with that aspect of the mythology.
Photo 31

-And, yeah, there she is. Watch out Sam!
Photo 32

-Oh well there's two of them! They hunt in teams, like velociraptors! \o/
Photo 33

-Oh dear. *facepalm* well, if there's anything odd in his blood left from the demon blood thing or the monster blood thing from the top of the season, maybe they'll detect it. Also, Lucifer's been damn quiet, at least as far as we've seen of him. With all the stress and loss running around, Sam's due for a big outbreak of something.
Photo 34
Photo 35

-Dean slept 36 hours. Wow. Although, Frank's sense of time is a little... special, so you might want to check your watch. And your bladder. And your neck, because if you've slept sitting up in that position for that long, you're going to have a considerable amount of ouch coming to you.

-Building something. So this would be a long-range project.

-"Go out and kill something or whatever you kids do to blow off steam." Dean can pull off a lovely bitchface when sufficiently motivated.
Photo 36

-"What I did when I came home to find my wife and two kids gutted on the floor." Ahh. More than just a wacky nutbag is Frank. And this level of sharing from someone with his level of paranoia is quite notable, I think.
Photo 37
Photo 38

-"Decide to be fine until the end of the week. Make yourself smile, because you're alive and that's your job. And do it again the next week." Yeah. Sucks don't it?

-Does Dean's phone just continue to buzz intermittently when he has saved voicemail, or did he just get a new message on top of Sam's old one? If so, from who. Or right. The kid.
Photo 39

-"Sam told me to call if I didn't hear anything back from him." Yeah, that would be Dean's 'oh crap' face.
Photo 40

-"I was out there looking for you." And such a great job you've done! now you just need to escape! Wheee...

-"So how do we get out of here?" Dude. You're the rescue party. If buddy had a way of escaping he would have by now.

-"Your dad may not want you to know every single thing about him." Aw Dean.
Photo 41

-Yep. And telling a teenager to do anything when you are no kind of authority figure they accept will get you nothing but grief. Hey, she's already wearing plaid, maybe she'll be cool with it.
Photo 42

-Ooo, wall o' weird is missing, Sam must have packed it up and taken it with him, and left the map for Dean. Smart Sam! \o/
Photo 43

-Or kid took it down and knew all along. Okey dokey.
Photo 44

-"I'm coming with you." Oh this will go well.
Photo 45

-*smacks the gun out of her hand* Hahahaha, yeah, her stance was too extended. XD

-"One thing doesn't make sense though. My dad's a pretty good hunter, and your brother's the size of a car-" *pauses to hack up a lung and wheeze a lot* XD

-"Sam quit, went to college." Oh the contemplative look on her face is kind of heartbreaking.
Photo 46

-"Be a hunter-slash-paediatrician." Awww. *grins*

-Of course Sam deflects the feeding on to himself.
Photo 47

-"I've been prepping for this my entire life." Honey, you have no idea.
Photo 48

-"What century is this?" Fist bumps! Heeeee!
Photo 49

-AHAHAHAHHAHH. Handcuffs. I get the feeling that might backfire hugely, but yeah. I wonder if he ever pulled that on wee!Sam? Not that wee!Sam was itching to charge into hunting. XD

-"I watched my mom get torn to shreds." That... might be an argument that will work on Dean. Or not.
Photo 50
Photo 51

-And now she's in a pretty perfect position to slide over, hotwire the car and start ramming things isn't she. Just sayin'
Photo 52

-That was not the sound of a silver knife hitting the ground.

-Dean's being thrown into a wall! And choked! What day is it? \o/
Photo 53
Photo 54

-"Dad, hold on I got you!" *headdesk* You idiot!
Photo 55
Photo 56
Photo 57

-Hell of a holdout skill to hide a knife that big in a sleeve that small without tearing.

-"Bad actress, hunh?" She is... really dangerously skating into Mary-Sue territory, isn't she? Just a wee bit. Considering she's just in essence rescued everyone while Dean stood there kind of helpless, along with all that's happened so far and her backstory, it could be argued to be more of a triple lutz into Mary-Sue territory. Hmm. ...Also, not to rain paranoia on anyone's parade, but has anyone checked her for being a Leviathan? *side-eyes*
Photo 58

-"Quit." *nods* Interesting how Dean's viewpoint has changed over the years.
Photo 59

-"You ever know anyone who left the life?" ...Let's see. Rufus tried, was a paranoid recluse. Frank arguably, also paranoid recluse. That guy in the insane asylum, 'nough said. Sam, Stanford, yeah. Hmm. Low on examples. Doesn't mean it can't work. Someone has to be first.
Photo 60

Photo 61

-"No. They all get killed first." Hello Dean's family theme, what are you doing here?

-"Thanks for saying 'bye, asshat." She is cute, I will grant her that.
Photo 62

-"Bobby pin." Well hidden if so. It would be a 'what century is this?' type thing, but they are useful, so yeah.

-"Maybe I'll go to Stanford like Sam." And the fistbump. Aw. Even if she's totally lying or secretly evil, nice to let Dean have this possibility that he's helped a kid get back to a normal life.
Photo 63

-"How about you, you alright?"/"No, I'm definitely not." Oh yay, here we go!
Photo 64

-Sam: *waffles* "I just wanna work." Buuuuuuuullllshiiiiiiiiiiit. Sam. Your brother wants you to talk about your feelings. DOOOO IIIIIT!
Photo 65

-"We are the professionals." So full of crap. Arg. So they're keeping on with the not talking and revenge questing and generally being the Winchesteriest Winchesters they can be. Until things explode. And they will. Sigh.
Photo 66

-That smiling in pain thing from Dean at the end doesn't translate well into screencaps. But it's another wall going up to try and keep things under control, pushed down and festering. Owwww.

Why did Dean think she saved his life? He was about to stab the blonde when the kid ran in and got herself grabbed. If she'd waited, Dean would have finished one and then gone after the other. Yes she had a plan, but Dean was winning until she came in. Grrr.

Hahaha! That was my thought, too!!
percysowner From: percysowner Date: January 8th, 2012 08:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Exactly! And why after Sam basically set himself up as a blood bank to save her father did she only thank Dean?

Mary-Sue effect, sad to say. I'm still shaking my head. :-P
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: January 8th, 2012 06:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Gotta say, I kinda like Krissy! She was a girl version of how I imagine Dean at 14!

And yes, that was totally Bobby who drank Dean's beer. Which means he's eventually going to become an angry spirit the boys have to hunt. *wibble*
percysowner From: percysowner Date: January 8th, 2012 08:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm going with if Mary could hold out for 22 years and not become an angry spirit, Bobby can do so also. Heck even Molly in Roadkill wasn't angry, she just wanted to find her husband and make sure he was okay. I think that if Bobby is around he will be Bobby, the friendly ghost.
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: January 8th, 2012 11:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, yes that's what we need - Bobby the friendly Casper!

I concur that Bobby drank Dean's beer, mom agrees;) The last scene with Dean in the car just shattered me. Hells bells. I should also be more suspicious of children--you would think I would know better by now...lol
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: January 8th, 2012 11:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Especially kids in this show.

More than just a wacky nutbag is Frank. And this level of sharing from someone with his level of paranoia is quite notable, I think.

Agreed. Notable, indeed. Dean in general tends to be able to connect with other people rather easily, I've noticed. Even when he's determinedly trying not to. He's paying Frank, lol.

She is... really dangerously skating into Mary-Sue territory, isn't she? Just a wee bit. Considering she's just in essence rescued everyone while Dean stood there kind of helpless, along with all that's happened so far and her backstory, it could be argued to be more of a triple lutz into Mary-Sue territory.

Aww. I do see where you're coming from. I will say that I found myself liking her despite how precious she was, because she just had great chemistry with Jensen IMO, lol. Also -- I will argue one thing: Sam said she saved their lives to her dad. Nice thing to say, but... Sam perhaps wasn't aware that she wasn't supposed to even be there, that Dean had cuffed her to the car. Sam *should* have figured out that the only reason Dean was forced to put down his weapons was because she was dumb enough to charge in and get herself turned into a hostage. Nice that she could rescue herself from her own gaffe, but... well. I am chalking it up to the boys being nice enough to trying giving her credit to an exhausted, injured dad. And Dean didn't need to bother correcting the assumption about her role in the rescue, because he was focused on just getting her out of the life. Plus... she did seem to realize that she owned Dean a big one, judging from the final fist-bump of good-bye/unspoken thank-you implied in the gesture. Again, IMO. I wouldn't mind seeing her again, but in a scaled down, less Mary-Sue teenager part. Perhaps passing a job along to Dean, because she doesn't want her dad taking the job... something like that, maybe.

Awesome episode. I had so much trouble trying to focus on just one or two lines of thought... OUR SHOW IS BACK *SQUEE!!!!!*
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: January 10th, 2012 04:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh she was an enjoyable character, just had a lot of Mary-Sue factors going on.
ilikemyhumordry From: ilikemyhumordry Date: January 30th, 2012 10:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
You're theory about Bobby's guzzling ghost is so much better than mine. When I saw that part I thought it was some sort of wacky shout out to the Supernatural novel Night Terror (RECOMMENDED if you haven't read it yet! As a rule the books' awesome levels jump all over the place, but I seriously LOVED this one TO DEATH AND BACK). But given the show, it could be Bobby, or heck, Chuck trying to pull attention away or to something (or anyone(thing) else... -eyes clurichaun-), or Angel flash switcharoo because they need Dean not to die in a drunk driving accident for some reason. Or Lucifer... somehow. AND a shout out. It's Supernatural, why not.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: January 31st, 2012 07:09 am (UTC) (Link)
I haven't read many of the novels (the first couple put me off and I have so many things backlogged to read and do that I stopped buying them) but I will keep an eye out for that one.

I'm really thinking Bobby as the beer-thief though. It could be something more random, but they have to have some kind of final closure with Bobby.
ilikemyhumordry From: ilikemyhumordry Date: January 31st, 2012 07:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Very very true. Bobby's the most logical option... I'm just too paranoid to put all my eggs in one basket. -*shakes fist* ALL YOUR FAULT KRIPKE!- :)
