Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 7.13
Contains profanity and rambling.

Spoiler and Theory Summary


Dean gets someone pregnant. Monster baby daughter. Goes from conception to high school very fast. Makes me think of that Star Trek Next Gen episode where - was it Troi? I don't recall - has a baby boy from some handwave alien thing and he ages super fast too, and the reason the alien thing did it was to get the experience of being human-ish or whatever. Something like that. Doubt that's anywhere near the case here, just the insta-kid thing.

Title: "The Slice Girls" - Ha ha ha. Oh dear. Dean's little girl could be a major handful. Doubt things will end well for any of them. This might make Dean swear off sex, rather than just not getting any because of grief/stress/being a wanted mass murderer/lack of free time/driving a stolen hatchback/etc.

So, Spoilers plus this being episode 13 this season, and former episode 13's tending toward the less-liked or more controversial (Route 666? Houses of the Holy?), this could be... interesting. O.o

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 7.13 - "The Slice Girls"

-Skipping the THEN.

-What a very tonally coordinated decor this evening's pre-title Monster Chow has. Right down to the laptop. That'll all show splattering well.
Photo 1

-And wall art of random feet. If this guy turns out to have a foot-related job, that'll be too cute for words. If not, well, he and/or the equally doomed unseen 'Barb' like feet. *shrug*
Photo 2

-Yep, shows splattering very well. And the splatterer has an artistic streak!
Photo 3

-...and also likes hands and feet! Haha, I figured something would turn out to be feety.
Photo 4

-What is that blurry brown rust bucket, a 60's Firebird? Guys, guys, guys, if you're going to be driving classic-ish muscle-ish cars regardless, keeping the Impala in dry dock serves no purpose at all. Now park the damned FireChicken or whatever it is and GET METALLICAR BACK.
Photo 5

-"Is that Bobby's?" You know you have a drinking problem when your brother's first question after you start drinking less than a minute after waking up is to query the origin of the flask, rather than its contents.
Photo 6

-And yeah, it's totally ghost!Bobby that made that beer disappear a few episodes back.

Photo 7

-Hee! Corpse-eye view. And while we're here, Tie Report: Dean deep red, narrow blue stripes down to his left, Sam... Sam seems to be wearing his shades of gloom desaturated angst tie from "The Mentalists". That really doesn't bode well.
Photo 8

-*block guest stars with finger*

-Actually, Sam's tie isn't the desaturated angst tie, it's a blue one with lighter blue compound stripes, but it can masquerade as the desaturated angst tie, so I'm saying... Sam seems to be okay, but he's really really not. Heh. No surprises there then.
Photo 9

-This forensic/coroner guy is adorable, with his ruffly hair and his sweater vest. His active interest in things makes me smile. And looking at his badge, we're in Seattle? Yay Pacific Northwest, and a city Vancouver can emulate without stretching.
Photo 10

-"They don't match anything human." Surprise! It's your kind of gig. Imagine that.
Photo 11

-"I've never seen this symbol before." Right. Challenge time. *fires up symbols.com* Hm. Closest I can find looks only very vaguely similar, but means "Come back and fetch it" which is generally not a happy thing to get written on you by a monster.

-Dean: *blah mingle with locals blah* Sam: "You're going to a bar." *epic smugdimpleface* *pats Sam and gives him cookies*
Photo 12

-Cobalt Room. Combined with the vic's decor, there's an awful lot of blue hanging around inconspicuously.
Photo 13

-Written by Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner, Directed by... Jerry Wanek! Long-time Production Designer and more recent Co-Producer, in his very first directorial gig ever, if I'm not mistaken! *applauds*
Photo 14

-"I've had a fortunate year." I'm trying to think of how that could possibly be more of a lie than it is. Lost his best friend, lost his surrogate dad, evil black goop monsters are taking over the world, and Sam's totally nuts but hiding it far too well. And he hasn't been allowed to pick his own name or drive his own car for months now. Nope. Not fortunate at all.

-I will say, she's a very cute and wholesome-looking monster.
Photo 15

-AC/DC Not "Highway to Hell" ... "You Shook Me All Night Long"? Hahahah! XD.

-More blue and grey tones in our "during Dean's nookie scene" vic's house. It does contrast well with gouts of blood.
Photo 16

-And for contrast, in our likely Monster of the evening's place we have warm ochres and earthtones.
Photo 17

-HI TATTOO CONTINUITY! HI HI OMG HI!!! I can't believe how gleeful I am about that. Hee!
Photo 18

-New tie, new report. Dean's is now blue instead of read (which very very nicely puts his tie in the decorator spectrum of the victim's houses I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE, WANEK! \o/) and the stripes going the opposite direction form before, so Dean's feeling less... more... Hm. Different. And Sam appears to have swapped for the desaturated angst tie, but it might not be. Sam's tie has been deceptive this episode *eyes*
Photo 19

-"Our expert's dead." *wibble*

-I think it is the desaturated angst tie. It's not the same blue as before. *ponders*
Photo 20

-"One night fling." Yep. Plot is on course. *nods*

-I must say, I don't think I've ever seen a police tape strung that high. I guess they were avoiding the boys having to resort to limbo to get under it. Hee!
Photo 21

-"So not only do you know her name, you're actually gonna call her?"/"Bite me." Heeeeee! Yes, Dean's habits have changed considerably since season one.
Photo 22

-"Gotta go, real busy at the moment." Aw Dean. Don't worry, she's just gestating.
Photo 23

-"We will call her Emma." They've got a clipboard. and going through a roster of names. Like hurricanes. Oh dear.

-And another complete tie change, because I swear, someone does this to me on purpose. Dean's still in shades of victim-palette blue, Sam has gone with Dean's red-with compound stripes tie from the top of the hour, which... hm. He could be masking something, or he's shifting more into leader/protector, what with Dean's impending doom looming?
Photo 24
Photo 25

-And another sweater-vest for another interviewee. Hm.
Photo 26

-Awww. Missing having Bobby as a reference. A surface sign of something deeper. *nods*

-"Don!"/"...Dean." Hehehehehe. Cute.

-Ahahahaha. Oh dear, Dean's about to have a wee bit of a boggle check, I think.
Photo 27
Photo 28

-The kid is adorable. Of course. And a leeetle bit creepy. Of course.
Photo 29

-Dean and kids. Aw. too bad she's evil. Like 50% of the kids Dean's encountered on the job.
Photo 30

-Yeah, kid that seems to be barely walking age (but in actuality about 24 hours old) suddenly talking in complete clear sentences is a little odd.
Photo 31
Photo 32

-"I just figured it was the similarity to the other cold cases." Okay, I love forensic boy, and I hope he doesn't die. Or better yet, I hope he transfers to Scotland Yard so he can hang out with Sherlock and John and Lestrade. He's adorable and providing info without resistance, and providing a cover story for Sam's bullshit flailing. Seriously, it's a serial killer that's hacking off extremities and carving symbols in chests. It'd be weirder if the FBI didn't take notice. But Forensic guy and his sweater vests can stay, somewhere. I like him... he's so doomed.
Photo 33

-"Flings with unknown women, that kinda thing, all just before they got offed." And we have reached the 'oh crap Dean's doomed' portion of the evening's festivities.
Photo 34

-All right, what is that thing? Not a Malibu, or a Firebird. Ford Torino? Mercury something? Nice detail of the plates being Oregon though. They didn't steal the car in Seattle. Oh, and Dean, stalking your one night stand is really not cool, but you're just picking up plot-vibes, so it's case-related, although you don't know it yet.
Photo 35

-We're certainly getting enough shots of the rust-bucket to try for an ID. The name badge on the grille has been removed. Someone's making it tricky.
Photo 36

-"I have been eating at the buffet of strange all afternoon." Pretty much your whole life, really, but this is a slightly more focused strange.
Photo 37

-"You dodged a bullet." Heheh. Not really. It's a very slow bullet.

-Pre-adolescent girl, but she won't be that for long. So once the kid is matured enough, the group picks her up and oversees her?
Photo 38

-Another reference pic for the car. That trunk looks distinctive.
Photo 39

-"No playpens, no blankets, no rubber ducks." As if a single mom intending to bring a random guy home from a bar wouldn't hide that stuff and send the kid to a sitter. Also, you weren't exactly paying attention to the room contents when you got there. You didn't even notice you'd dropped your flask.
Photo 40

-OH HEY I HAD A THOUGHT! If Bobby is a ghost, and that flask is his focus object, or one of them, maybe Dean didn't drop it so much as it... got loose. Like Bobby did the ghost mojo thing and popped it out of the pocket so Dean would go back for it and see the kid and so forth and not be in the dark like the rest of the victims. Maybe Bobby's still helping them after all! \o/

-I don't know why Dean shutting the laptop in Sam's face makes me giggle, but Hee!
Photo 41

-"This kid's gotta be 5?" I am a horrible guesser of kid ages, but I would have said older.

-"Are you deliberately messing with me?" Thaaaat's an oddly Luciferian shrug Sam has going on. He looks like Mark Pellegrino when he shrugs there. easier to see in motion. Makes me very nervous for the state of Sam which we've not had any updates about in a long while. *ponders*
Photo 42

-"Hannah Montana. Early years." Dean's TV viewing habits are unexpectedly broad. O.o

-WHITE NIGHTIES. *headdesk* Goes well with the ritual feasting on the flesh of victims and the big glasses of milk.
Photo 43

-"Lesser scholars would have crumbled." Heee! Slide show! You know, if they get a 'wacky expert of the episode' sort of thing started here, I would not object terribly. Unless there's any chance of getting Bobby back.
Photo 44

-"The temple of the Goddess Harmonia." Which is a bit of Greek mythology that exists in the real world. Nothing in there about Harmonia being their mom, though. Something about a poisoned necklace on her wedding day. Doubt the insta-baby cult was part of it, either.

-Oh it's a stylized urn. Okay, that's cool.
Photo 45

-"Remember that cross-country murder spree those crazy brothers went on a few months ago?" Well, crap. Also, I figured the lead investigator had a few too many lines not to be part of the group. Of course it's probably been super-obvious and they've outright shown her there before, but for some reason I'm having a hard time picking her out by appearance alone. I'm bad with faces sometimes.
Photo 46

-"His files are set up like his brain." Aren't everyone's? XD

-Aw Sam face.
Photo 47
Photo 48

-"After mating they gave birth within 36 hours." C'mon Sam, don't make Dean do the math.
Photo 49
Photo 50

-Oh Dean.
Photo 51

-"So maybe you're, you're a-"/"Don't say it." Not that Dean probably doesn't have a few unknown sprogs roaming the planet with his former promiscuity, but this is one that it part of the group they're going to have to try to stop, and kill, so Dean thinking of being a daddy is not going to make any of that easier. And Sam has another face.
Photo 52

-SERIOUSLY THOUGH, SINCE ANCIENT GREEK TIMES EVERY TWO YEARS IN SOME RANDOM TOWN THERE'S A SERIAL KILLER THAT CHOPS OFF MEN'S HANDS AND FEET AND CARVES WEIRD CRAP ON THEIR CHEST AND NO LEGAL AUTHORITY HAS MADE A SINGLE CONNECTION ABOUT IT EXCEPT THE CUTE CORONER GUY? SINCE EVEN SAM AND DEAN DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE OTHER INCIDENTS? REALLY? IS LEAD INVESTIGATOR AMAZON BLOCKING ALL THE INTEL-SHARING AND DEAD-FILING EVERYTHING ON EACH CASE? Yeah, actually, that works. And there's been a similarly-roled Amazon all through history. Sure. They'd have to to survive. With determination they could keep it all locked down to a local level, maybe, or impede federal investigation. Which means the cute coroner is extra doomed because he put it all together. Regardless *handwave*

-Well, branding. Amazons must have loads of awkward conversations in short-sleeve weather. Or not so short-sleeve weather. Shoulder would be a better place for it. Did Lydia have one? I was distracted by the murdering.
Photo 53

-Hee. Emma's the tallest. XD
Photo 54

-Emma keeps having minor moments of resistance to proceedings. Kind of hoping for a rebellion at the last minute, stranger things have happened.

-"It makes sense why the Amazons want to hook up with decent-looking successful guys."/"They're picky about the gene-pool?"/"Right. So, what was Lydia doin' with you?" Oh buuuuuurn. Yep, still brothers. XD
Photo 55

-"She may or may not have thought I was a rich investment banker." Hee. You've been telling women in bars you're anything under the sun for your entire adult life. It was bound to come back and bite you eventually.
Photo 56

-AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. YEAH BOBBY'S STILL HELPING THEM! Those pictures didn't just move themselves. \o/
Photo 57

-Bobby has got to be so frustrated right now though. "Get that book. No THAT book, the one with- No, the other-! No, don't put the photos there!" *ghost pushes photos aside while Dean's back is turned* "Idjits!"

-"I didn't touch 'em." Heh. Considering you've been slugging back booze the entire time, I don't know how much trust Sam'll be putting in your perceptions right now, Dean. Also, LOOK AT THE PAPER.
Photo 58

-But Sam believes him. And Sam digs out the EMF. And hello, Bobby.
Photo 59

-"And powerlines. Where there's an open window, and a breeze that could've moved the papers." Or Sam doesn't believe him. Well, Sam's been working pretty hard on denying the reality of things in his own head this season, so now he's applying it to this. Except that window wasn't open before, was it? No it was. Bobby's sneaky, and knows better than to make the boys too jumpy about ghosts in case they shoot first and ask questions later. Not that they've ever done that before. *eyeroll*

-Also, the angle of the breeze would have pushed the photos (heavier than paper too) off the other side of the book. Just sayin' ;-)

-"Maybe, uh..." *sloshy-sloshy* Oh Dean. Smart Dean, but oh Dean. The little boy hope look kills me.
Photo 60

-"No it couldn't be."/"Why?"/"Because we want it to be." Because what the weird crap they want to be true never is. SO MUCH OW.
Photo 61
Photo 62

-"Except Greeks. Oh, and Bobby." Hee! Also maybe that professor guy in the university. Or hell, fire up Google Translate and use their Greek Keyboard emulator, it'd be a start.
Photo 63

-"Alright, I'll sweeten the deal. We'll remove your wiretap." HEEEEEEEEEEE! BRILLIANT! XD
Photo 64

-Knocking at the door. Don't answer it Dean, it's doom.
Photo 65

-"I think I'm in trouble and you're the only person I can trust." Ooo. Now. They've been laying the foundation for us to believe her. Is she actually going to go non-murderous, or is it a ruse? Dean is conflicted.
Photo 66

-"Because you're my father." And the tubas of doom go BWAAAAAT on the soundtrack.

-"They tortured me." Hehehehehe, arguably true and arguably not true, so still not a convincer. Especially since they know he and Sam are hunters and know to appeal to his need to save people. Though you might want to put a bandage on that so it doesn't get infected.
Photo 67

-"If you knew me you would seriously doubt it's true." Oh Deeeeeean.

-"They told me you're a hunter." Well! Lay it all out on the table then! I have no idea which way she's really going with this, which is cool, because that's how it should be.

-"You get that this is my last chance to have anything normal ever, right?" OW OW OW OW OW. Just land right on that button why don't you?
Photo 68

-"The paper is fascinating!" Ahahahahahah. Academics are fun. XD
Photo 69

-"A child born of the mating process must kill her own father." Well, of course. Wasn't that already obvious? Apparently not to Sam. O.o
Photo 70

-See, now if she'd showed those dimples more earlier, I might have had an easier time tracking her.
Photo 71

-Yeah, okay, that's quite subtle-looking actually.
Photo 72

-And the Show keeps up the tradition of freaky weird eyes as signifiers of evil weird crap. Not sure how eyes like that relate to Amazons in any way... Though I suppose it could have been waaaay worse if they'd picked something more "Amazon" related, like the traditional rumour of Amazons removing their right breast for easier bow use and spear throwing. Something about the Lead Investigator here suddenly having the right half of her chest implode seems far too cracky, and prone to misunderstanding.
Photo 73

-Traditional weapons are nice and all, but never bring a knife to a gun fight. Seriously. She had to know Sam was armed, as an American police officer, she's got a handgun, what's wrong with a little non-traditional shooting in the kneecap and disarming before carving Sam up? Practical concerns before traditions, dear, you'd have lived longer. Bad tactics. *headshake*
Photo 74
Photo 75
Photo 76

-Also, our friendly sweater vest wearing academic has to be freaking out now. He's already in the office at close to midnight, and now there's gunfire in the halls

-Also, also... that light fixture behind her looks familiar... from that episode with Garth the hunter. Isn't that the same kind of light fixture that was nearly dropped on that one guy's wife who wished him to be successful?

-"They may have already found out, and they'll hunt me down." And I still don't quite know whether this is Dean falling for it, not falling for it, or if there's anything to fall for. This is Dean's 'I'm going to murder the crap out of something' face and I'm not sure where it's aimed or where it should be aimed. This is actually quite cool, because I'm having to watch closer to pick up smaller cues. Something about her face when she first came in and he couldn't see it made me think she's not rebelling though.
Photo 77

-Now open, the world's most pathetic fridge. What is that, a random pile of cheese? O.o
Photo 78

-HA, it is cheese! And a burrito, and of course beer, because something had to clank when the door opened.
Photo 79

-"Doesn't make a difference." Yep. Not rebelling. Just playing with her food. Or do they only eat bits when they're being indoctrinated? Hey, I wonder if it's like a Rugaru thing. If they don't eat human flesh, they don't go Dark Side. There's an AU. The boys figure everything out before the indoctrination, grab her and the rest of the three-day old teenagers and keep them off human meat. Maybe. I don't know.
Photo 80

-And yeah. Dean's not an idiot. Even if he did believe her, he wouldn't be far from a gun.
Photo 81

-I HAVE SO MUCH LOVE FOR SAM DRIVING LIKE A PSYCHO AND I DON'T KNOW WHY. It's not even that he didn't even bother trying to find a payphone or something to warn Dean about Emma and is now racing through the night inspiring road rage to try to save him, just- SAM! DRIVING! LIKE A PSYCHO! \o/
Photo 82

-"I should just kill you right now."/"Sure. But you could have done that 30 seconds ago." Ahahahah. Yeah. Okay. Dean's having some inner conflict. XD

-WHAT IS THAT THING? Freaking car's gonna drive me nuts.
Photo 83

-"You haven't killed anybody yet, Emma. Walk away." It's always fascinating how much Dean's perspective on there being grey areas involved in hunting has changed since season 1. I'd lay the majority of that on needing to believe that Sam could be saved. If other supernatural creatures can avoid going dark, then there's hope for Sam. Or something. Seven years that includes a few deaths and a trip to Hell will change anyone's attitude.
Photo 84

-"Please don't let him hurt me!" Oh, what happened to "I don't have a choice" hm? Now that you're outnumbered and can't work on Dean's ever so malleable soft spots on your own, you turn up the fake-out? Also, hahaha. Sam saw her eyes turn. Dean didn't. This could get so many kinds of ugly.
Photo 85

-Oh crap. Yep. All kinds of ugly.
Photo 86
Photo 87
Photo 88

-I suppose it's a kind of balance versus Dean killing Amy Pond, maybe? Same kind of rationalizing behind it? (Also, Emma, Amy. Similar, eh?) The fallout from this could be huge, or it could seem quiet and then be huge, or everyone could repress everything, Sam will explode from Lucifer, and Dean will self-destruct from angst. So huge, with a delay or without.
Photo 89
Photo 90

-Oh crap, that's right, they still have to take out the rest of them. This could get messy. That is if they're still in town and Emma wasn't a 'delay the hunters so the rest of the brood can flee' tactic, and if she was YAY. I love tactically intelligent adversaries. Even if they're using their own offspring as bait. O.o
Photo 91

-"They're gone." Yep. Strategy and tactics. You boys should really get some. *golf clap*
Photo 92

-You know, if Sam keeps driving like this, maybe it's safer for Metallicar to stay in dry-dock. O.o
Photo 93

-"What did you say about Amy?" Ah yes, let's get that batch of epic yelling done with and aired out now.
Photo 94
Photo 95
Photo 96
Photo 97

-"Cas died, you were wobbly, but now-"/"Now what? Oh you're dealing with it so perfect?" Yeaaaah, we haven't had much of Sam dealing with his shoulder-Lucifer for a long while now. It's getting 'sword of Damocles'ian in here. O.o

-"Newsflash pal, you're just as screwed up as I am, you're just... bigger." Heeeeee! XD
Photo 98
Photo 99

-"It means I'll do what I can. And you can shut up about it." OWWWWWWWWW. Yeah. So much repressed bad and lack of support and they're both going to explode all over everything, unless Bobby manifests and smacks them both upside the head first.

Well. 13th episode. Could definitely have been worse!

Great review. I personally loved how ambiguous Emma's real motive was, and that we don't know if Dean would have killed her or not.

And your tie-fu is once again amazing :)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 5th, 2012 07:09 am (UTC) (Link)
I think in the end she was going to kill them, and that maybe she'd been assigned to kill Sam too, and the rest was a delaying action, but there is certainly enough grey area in her actions to put doubt on her true motivations.
ciaranbochna From: ciaranbochna Date: February 5th, 2012 08:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Definitely Bobby all over this ep. Sam's state of mind is disturbing me no end, and what the hell is that car anyway? I dearly miss Metallicar.

Academic dude was also The Mayor in Buffy(but you probably knew that already)--he was a hoot revelling in the evil and the one-liners.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 5th, 2012 08:27 am (UTC) (Link)
There is something going on with Sam that he's masking, I think. Seriously, that one shrug thing I mentioned above was totally Lucifer. I want to find out what the hell is going on in Sam's head.

Academic dude was also The Mayor in Buffy(but you probably knew that already)

Actually, beyond the general premise and plot and a few of the main actors, I know nearly nothing about Buffy and less about Angel. I have seen the original movie, and the final episode of Buffy and that's all. Never got into it.
ciaranbochna From: ciaranbochna Date: February 5th, 2012 07:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
I would dearly love to know what is going on in Sam's head as well. The apathetic way Dean is throwing everything off is utterly disturbing to me too (although I cannot argue with the delightful detached feeling of alcohol), but anyway.

I know you never watched Buffy or Angel, but you usually research the guest starts, so I thought you already knew;)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 5th, 2012 11:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
I tend to only research the ones I think I recognize, or that really seem to stand out as a stunt-casting, and he really blended in as 'just a guest star" for me which is a good thing because it means who the actor is isn't upstaging the character they're playing.

-What is that blurry brown rust bucket, a 60's Firebird? Guys, guys, guys, if you're going to be driving classic-ish muscle-ish cars regardless, keeping the Impala in dry dock serves no purpose at all. Now park the damned FireChicken or whatever it is and GET METALLICAR BACK.

100% concur. I have been missing the Impala SO MUCH lately. It's really leaving this sense of a void equivalent to missing a character. (Which, yes, she is a character. Just not human.)

-"It means I'll do what I can. And you can shut up about it." OWWWWWWWWW.

Yup. OWWWW galore. Dean isn't even trying to mask his lack of interest in continuing his existence... he's only barely continuing to put one foot in front of the other because Sam says he needs him, and because he wants revenge for Bobby. And... Sam seems to be doing okay holding himself together (from Dean's POV), so he's feeling less urgency on the "Sam needs me" front ever since SSTFaW. Bad combination of factors. Sam's plea is giving Dean gossamar threads to still try holding onto, but how much longer will he hold out unless given more reason. Which, of course, leads us to... the other shoe dropping. Whenever that may be, in whatever form that may take. *is very nervous*
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 5th, 2012 11:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Metallicar must return. Seriously, enough of this nonsense.

Which, of course, leads us to... the other shoe dropping. Whenever that may be, in whatever form that may take. *is very nervous*

It's horrifying seeing Dean giving up on himself by slow degrees, and Sam turning into a solid wall. Really they've lost everything but each other, and now they're both slipping away in different directions. That other shoe is going to need to be a frigging huge one to break the downward spiral, one way or another.

Yep, that's the rust bucket!

Re: :)

Found you through the newsletter....

I recognized the car! The buddy cop show Due South had a shiny green Riviera. Its owner was inordinately attached to it - to the point of tracking down an exact replacement when his was destroyed. Anyway, since it has good associations, I didn't mind this one as much as I usually do. Maybe, if we can't have the Impala back yet, they can spend a week in a Gran Torino (like Starsky and Hutch)?
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 6th, 2012 03:16 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: :)

Why not, they could cycle through any classic cars they could get access to for a couple weeks.

Just for the sheer misery of it, though, I'd love to see them jammed into a classic Mini Cooper. Sam'd have his knees up around his ears.

Great review! Factoid you may already know, but in season one the actress who played Emma played Missy Bender, in The Benders. Apparently she just looks like the type to hold knives on Dean and threaten to kill him, after looking ambiguously innocent on first meet.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 5th, 2012 10:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
I did not know that! Really points out how many years have passed from the start of this to see her so much older.
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: February 5th, 2012 06:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Interestingly enough, these writers also wrote Route 666... which kinda explains a lot. (And Scarecrow and Mrs King. Damn. Used to love that show!)

This episode really made me want to know what Missy Bender's getting up to these days...

She probably went into foster care after the police cleared out the Bender farm, got loads of therapy and an education and is a doctor, nurse, psychologist or veterinarian somewhere in a completely different state.

ETA: I thought they sounded familiar beyond Supernatural. I used to love Scarecrow and Mrs. King as a kid.

Me too! I have now added Bruce Boxleitner to my list of fantasy SPN guest stars!

(I obviously meant "getting an education toward becoming a [etc]" above, not that she'd be one already)

He might be possible too, he turns up in things now and then, like in Chuck as Devon's dad, he'd make a kickass guest hunter or town sheriff or FBI guy. A bit out of the budget for the show, maybe though.

I forgot to mention that although the continuity is great about the tattoo, the big old hand print scar that Castiel left has apparently disappeared. I don't mind, I'm sure it was an time consuming make up job, but it just vanished.

Well, it was a burn, and it's been three years since the last time we saw it with Anna, it'd make sense for it to be healed and faded so it's not easy to see anymore. Or maybe it'll return when Castiel does, because he totally will. :-)

"Something about the Lead Investigator here suddenly having the right half of her chest implode seems far too cracky, and prone to misunderstanding."

I nearly choked on my apple when I read that!

Great tie meta..thing, always love it. :)

The ambivalence was a bit thick, yeah.
