Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 7.15
Keep calm and picspam on, yeah?

Spoiler and Theory Summary

Some demon they exorcised is back and they have to talk to the guy they exorcised it from to find something out about the demon plan. Considering this is right before a mini-hiatus, I expect Sam's head-Lucifer to return and make a revelation of some kind.

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 7.15 - "Repo Man"

-Skipping the- Wait, four years ago? *scans around* ...Where is the NOW? Okay fine, they're being more literal and the THEN now includes new material not happening at the same time as the episode. Great. That's so much more clear.

-IMPALA!!! WITH THE SPOTLIGHTS!!! The rest of the episode could be them folding their socks, I would still be happy just from that. \o/
Photo 1

-"It's one thing to study them in books..." Oh dear, a fresh-faced bright-eyed academic is going to get a serious baptism in fire, isn't she?
Photo 2

-Wiccan? Can we hope for an non-adversarial wiccan character portrayal? *crosses fingers*

-"I'm gonna scoop you out like a pumpkin." Ah demons, I kind of miss their refreshing straight-forward bloody-mindedness.
Photo 3

-"Looking for Lilith in all the wrong places." Right. Four years ago, Season 3, pre-"Dream a Little Dream" because spotlights.

-"We're gonna send that demon back to Hell."/"Okay. ...Please don't hurt me." A bit late for that, also, at this state of the demon-extracting art, a bit like trying to do surgery with a Nerf scalpel, but maybe this one's enough of a wimp to be chased out with Latin?
Photo 4
Photo 5

-"Whatever you have to do, do it." Bit of a tactical backfire for the demon there. Didn't expect your host to back their play, did you, Chuckles?
Photo 6

-Yeah, season 3 was the year of desperate demon torture, Dean's deal and the seals and stopping the Apocalypse and all that. *winces*

-And a rare look at the aftermath, Sam clearing the crime scene, Dean driving the exorcisee to the hospital. nice to have a couple details.

-Oh the Impala's throaty purr.... *sighs*

-*covers guest-* Whoops. Hi Mark Pellegrino! Figured you'd be around.

-"No demon talk in the ER. You were mugged." Wise words.
Photo 7

-"Um. Thank you." *little wave* BWAHAHAHAHA.

-Couer d'Alene, Idaho, Present Day. This is the first NOW-less episode in a long while, isn't it? Bet they did it just to trip up us THEN-skippers.

-Hi Lucifer! Yay we get to find out how Sam's really doing! Maybe!
Photo 8

-Yay police band radio! Have they used that since Season 1?

-Sam and Dean wake up pretty, in case anyone was wondering.
Photo 9
Photo 10

-Synchronized badge flashing will be an event in the 2012 Olympics, I've heard. Extra points for dimples.
Photo 11

-Written by Ben Edlund. Oh dear. This could be... interesting. And quippy!

-Tie report. Synchronized directions, both non-simple striping, Dean has shades of blue, Sam has a base of red with clusters of narrow compound white and grey stripes. Unified goals and intents for now, complex and very un-unified things going on under the surface.
Photo 12

-"Flash our tin to a bunch of chompers pretending to be policemen." Excellent point. They're kind of running free aren't they? And what about that location that's a little bit off from those numbers from Bobby. And has anyone seen what colour Frank bleeds lately? I can do paranoid too.

-"It's the drummer boys!" Heeeeee! Nice to have made such an impression the last time you were in town. Also, hi Lucifer, hanging out in the background.
Photo 13

-Directed by Thomas J. Wright, first time directing Supernatural, but has directed a lot of other things.

-And the devil makes three.
Photo 14

-WAUGH!! That was unexpected. O.O
Photo 15

-"We didn't catch the critter last time, did we?" ...critter? I take it that's a euphemism.

-"Careful, it's still drying." Also a wise idea. And handily fits in with the preconceptions about what decor a wiccan store might have, and so would raise no extra eyebrows.
Photo 16

-"We've had some technical difficulties, phone issues."/"It's a monster problem, really." Sam: *bitchface* *snerk*
Photo 17
Photo 18
Photo 19

-"And that's what it's all about. Handling it." Ohhhh dear. Poor doomed bastard.
Photo 20

-You know guys, a phone call would have been more thoughtful. What did you think a possessed guy was going to do with a dog anyway? ... uh. Do not answer that.
Photo 21

-"Make sure of what? That I peed my pants today?" Ha! Yep, Edlund.
Photo 22

-Love random!Lucifer, just hanging around, being an annoyance.
Photo 23

-When the former host of the recently returned demon knows who might be the next victim, it's a bit nervous making. "And put in a line. In an order." Why? To open a Seal? Bit too late for that, isn't it?

-"You're right. We just don't read anymore." Aw, Lucifer's a season 1 fan too.
Photo 24

-I wish they could do this all the time, have Lucifer just hanging around invisibly, being a dick to Sam. Not in the budget, I suspect.
Photo 25
Photo 26

-I still think he's more than a hallucination. Maybe. Just saying.

-"The doctor on duty said it looked like I got caught in the Spanish Inquisition." Probably not far off on some points there.
Photo 27

-"I started to talk about what happened." Yeeeeaaah. After the drinking and drugs, starting to talk about being possessed by a demon would not have gone over well. Not that it goes over well at the best of times.

-"I have to." Oh dear. A burning need to go rooting around in his old demon's nest. This guy is not going to survive the hour. And his little dog too.
Photo 28

-If you can't distract Sam with the weather stats for Hackberry Texas, distract him with an unexpected round of hallucinatory group head-desking.
Photo 29
Photo 30
Photo 31

-"Come on, Sam, pay attention to me, I'm bored!" Lucifer is five. And there's an open graphic novel on the desk in front of him too. Hee.
Photo 32

-And the Crap on Wheels of the week is a... Mustang? Naw.
Photo 33

-"No signal." It's a dead zone! GASP!

-He brought. His new dog. Who has recently had surgery and isn't even operating at full doggy capacity. To the demon nest. *EPIC FACEPALM*
Photo 34

-"Thing's not gonna pee in here, is it?"/"Um. I dunno." Meh. If it does, steal a different car. One advantage to driving the Crap of the week, no great loss if you need to ditch it.
Photo 35

-"Red door, down the hallway."/"Yeah, there is." Heeeey. If the demon wouldn't let him see, how'd he know the door was red...? *eyebrow*
Photo 36

-"This must be it." Either that or it's the local high school's party hangout.
Photo 37

-"Just stay here and don't move." Okay, at this point, I really hope you gave him one of those handy anti-possession necklaces or doodled one on him with a Sharpie, because leaving the formerly possessed guy unattended in the lair of his possessor seems to me to really be all kinds of dumb. Unless it's deliberate and you're trying to get the guy repossessed to get the demon to show up.

-And here we have the typical Hero Trap in action. Mimic or display a defenseless victim, get the hero to drop all weapons and defenses to run to the rescue, then attack when least expected. Right?
Photo 38
Photo 39
Photo 40
Photo 41
Photo 42

Photo 43
Photo 44

-OWWWWW. What the hell? Demon blood? Too reddish for Leviathan juice.
Photo 45
Photo 46

-...hey. Would a demon that got in via an injection bypass Dean's tattoo??? O.O

-"Leave your name, number and nightmare at the tone." Heee! Awesome.

-"Not a good sign." neither is agreeing with Lucifer, and yet here we are.
Photo 47

-Hm. Speed, and a whole panopoly of major painkillers and tranquilizers. Maybe the demon's trying to organleg and failing really really badly? Or it's a copycat?
Photo 48

-"Whatever's going on here, you know the demon's not coming back to kill anybody." It's mildly alarming when Lucifer provides pertinent case conjecture, hallucinatory or not.
Photo 49

-"Big brother's probably dead."/"Shut up." That's one sure-fire way to get a response out of Sam.
Photo 50
Photo 51

-"He said 'shut up' to me!" Aww! Heeee!
Photo 52

-Aha! Dead zone inna box. Clever. And waaaaaay more nuts than they figured.
Photo 53

-"Latin. Not suspicious at all." Can we have Lucifer narrate Sam's case-working unspoken monologs allll theeeeee tiiiiime? Please?
Photo 54

-"I've never seen this spell before."/"No, but you've seen its type." Sam out loud case-spitballing with his head-Lucifer however, is very worrisome.
Photo 55

-"I know this handwriting." Oh great. The wiccan character is evil again? Or is she just possessed? She was the one who told the boys to go find the prior possession victim... and she didn't step in the devil's trap because of 'wet paint'... hm. But why would Jeffery have the summoning spell? Vengeance on the demon? Hm.

-Sam's picked more locks in this episode than he has in years. It's awesome.
Photo 56

-"Ay caramba, mi cabeza!" He may be helping you out with the case, but your head-Lucifer is still a raging dick, Sam.
Photo 57

-Okay, not possessed. Or faking really well.
Photo 58

-"Get this stupid cow to focus, will you?" Just in case we forgot he's Lucifer.
Photo 59

-"I am two inches away from you, and I can make you talk, do you understand me." STOP LISTENING TO YOUR HEAD-LUCIFER, SAM. The being a dick thing is rubbing off. Or pushing you slowly dark side again.... Hmmmm... I wonder if that's the plan...
Photo 60

-Yup. Jeffrey's checked out. I KNEW him saying the door was red was a sign something was up. Also, I don't think we want to know what he's feeding the dog. O.o
Photo 61

-"I loved the power, the connection, and I loved him." That was unexpected. A little retroactive Stockholm syndrome there? O.o
Photo 62

-"You're a serial killer." *blink* Ohhhhh. Okay. Jeffrey was a serial killer first, or would have been one with enough of a stressor, then got possessed and went on a rampage with his demon, then started again once he got back out in proximity to society. And the list is a load of distracting crap, and he's kidnapped her son to get a summoning ritual to get his slaying partner back and holy crap this episode is needing a lot more brain to figure out than I have right now.
Photo 63

-"There's a sound that comes from their brains. Only I can hear it. Like an evil little steam whistle." Or some untreated schizophrenia-related condition got a demonic possession instead of proper treatment, and tipped Jeffrey into serial killing. Poor Jeffrey. :-/
Photo 64
Photo 65

-"He's the one who saved me, and you sent him to Hell." Buuuut, you signed off on it...? Seller's remorse?

-"And then he sent me this." It's an ear, isn't it.
Photo 66

-Yup. "He cut it off because the ritual didn't work." Yeek.

-"I found a summoning spell that would work, for sure." Oh crap. You know who else is in big-time lockdown except for maybe a little loose thread that followed Sam up to daylight, maybe? Lucifer. Who, if he's more than a hallucination is sitting in the room listening. And if this spell works on the demon that gave up intel to get him out... Eeeek.
Photo 67

-"Blood of the exorcist?" Which would be Dean. Oh dear. Sam's about to go ballistic on the wiccan lady. O.o

-"You're giving me the chills." Not something you want to hear from any variation on Lucifer.
Photo 68

-"Or I should say, it's killed you, shouldn't I?" I don't know whether that's a threat or an assessment of Dean's current mental state, but it works surprisingly well for both.

-"A life well-lived comes from the structured pursuit of meaningful happiness." ...yikes. O.o

-"I'll be right back." I'm guessing this is where the dog becomes a spell component, right? Eek. :-/
Photo 69
Photo 70
Photo 71

-He does Latinate well. And has the one-off spell memorized, which it took Dean 'til season three to do for the exorcism, so that's impressive. Sign of obsession.
Photo 72

-Yeah, minimizing the number of potential possession targets would have been a wise idea.
Photo 73

-I don't think he was expecting a hug. Or a dance. Probably not.
Photo 74
Photo 75

-"You captured a Winchester." Hehe. Riiiight. And they're off-limits right now per Crowley, aren't they? Jeffrey's toast.
Photo 76

-*facepalm* Aaaarg. Seriously. Rope-tying consultant. They need one.
Photo 77

-An old one, but a good one. Demons are DUMB.
Photo 78

-"I'll be back you know. Back in black." What?! "Go to Hell." Yes. Do that. No demon quotes the Impala montage song, especially while the boys aren't driving around in her.

-*smirks at the same exorcism or close enough as they used in season one* Can't beat the classics.

-"You goin' to sleep?"/"Damn straight. Screw consciousness, that's what I say." Heeee.
Photo 79

-And the other danger of working a case with your head-Lucifer. He gets a better grip, because interacting with him makes him more real to you, or strengthens the connection to the Cage or whatever.
Photo 80

-"Got my finger wiggling around in your brain pan." Yes, that.
Photo 81

-Oh dear. That's definitely not good.
Photo 82

Well, the back half of the season's looking mighty interesting for Sam.

Interesting ep--sooo glad Lucifer's back. Great recap, too.
I'm a little confused too re whether Lucifer is in Sam's head or whether Lucifer is actually in Sam's head. On the one hand, Lucifer hasn't shown himself capable of impacting anyone's reality other than Sam's, he doesn't know anything that Sam doesn't know, he doesn't have access to info Sam doesn't have--he's just more focused and quicker than Sam. On the otherhand, if Lucifer's still mostly in the cage and only a little piece of him rode Sam's soul topside he might still have those limitations. I think the key question will be what will he do next? If he tries to get Sam to kill himself(as he was apparently trying to do in Hello Cruel World) or just continues unabated torture--I think that tends toward Lucifer just being in Sam's head. I think actual Lucifer would not want to kill Sam but use him to get out of the cage. Don't know which is scarier for Sam.

Funny, but for me at least, despite all the dark things in this episode, the worst for me was when Dean was fully face planted in that hideous motel bedspread--I just wanted to scream "Dean, don't you watch Dateline. If this motel is this groddy under daylight, can you imagine what would show up under luminol and blacklight" Ewwwwww.

Hope Dean can handle what's in store, and while I support his return to sobriety he really needs Flask Bobby right about now.

I've thought head-Lucifer was more than just a hallucination since the start of the season. They are keeping it rather ambiguous and it could turn out either way in the end, but we'll see.

As to the bedspread, they've been living in motels most of their lives and until recently have been living in abandoned moldy houses and shacks, so I doubt Dean would ever even care. It has running water and heat and a bed.

Flask Bobby would be a welcome arrival anytime.

What I want to know is, where did that devil's trap in the warehouse come from? Makes no sense for Jeffrey to have put it there, and when could Sam and Nora have done it?
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 22nd, 2012 06:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Good question. I kind of thought it might be a back-up plan painted by Jeffrey in case his demon picked the wrong host, but how would he have found out how to paint one. Since magic actually works in the SPN 'verse, maybe Nora has some kind of 'transfer paint' charm that works and transferred the one off her floor to the ceiling of the warehouse?
From: sssshup Date: February 23rd, 2012 12:04 am (UTC) (Link)
I suppose Jeffrey could have done it, but why? And if he did I'm sure he's being made to regret it in Hell as we speak. Then again, he did sign off on his own torture to rid himself of his "beloved" demon, so I guess he had some pretty serious love-hate /approach-avoidence issues.

I do on the whole think it was implausible--dramatic but implausible. I guess they figured nobody complained too loudly when Soulless Sam used his own blood and apparently Inspector gadget arms to draw the trap in Caged Heat. I would have preferred if they had drawn it right outside on the ground, And Sam could have gotten him to chase him thru the door and--bam--trapped. A little less dramatic but much more plausible. Then I ask myself why in a world of magic, demons and monsters do I still crave plausibility--but I do.
x_cat11 From: x_cat11 Date: February 24th, 2012 01:08 am (UTC) (Link)
Well Jeffrey didn't know what he was doing, so he probably followed Nora's instructions to the letter. And as no one in their right mind would summon a demon outside of a devil's trap, Nora would have included that in her instructions automatically. Also with any luck she could have solved her problem by telling Jeffrey he had to summon under the devil's trap. If it worked than both Jeffrey & the demon would be stuck.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 24th, 2012 05:51 am (UTC) (Link)
That's probably the best reasoning I've heard for it. For all he knew it was another part of the ritual. It works!
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: February 22nd, 2012 06:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
I totally wish Mark Pellegrino was in Sam's head and on our screens every week too! (Do you watch Being Human - US version? I won't say anything else in case you don't and plan to!)

Loved the season 3ish feel to this ep. Made me realise how much I've missed demons! (And the Impala. Obviously.)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 22nd, 2012 06:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Haven't watched any of the 'Being Human's, though I might watch the UK one for Russell Tovey at some point.

Loved the season 3ish feel to this ep. Made me realise how much I've missed demons! (And the Impala. Obviously.)

Oh yes indeed! And the spotlights! I count that as a partial win on the mail-in campaign. ;-D
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: February 22nd, 2012 07:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh the UK version of Being Human is much better than the US version (I'm not biased or anything!) but Mark Pellegrino's in the US version!
x_cat11 From: x_cat11 Date: February 24th, 2012 01:10 am (UTC) (Link)
So does this mean the spotlights are back to stay?
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 24th, 2012 05:53 am (UTC) (Link)
Sadly, I doubt it. That was a flashback, and unless they do put them back on in the show before they get her back on the road from wherever they have her stashed, they'll probably be off when we see her again. It was good to get that absence acknowledged though.
x_cat11 From: x_cat11 Date: February 25th, 2012 03:08 am (UTC) (Link)
The thing is - the flashback did not take place during that season - most of it is new footage shot for this episode. Did they get that impala shot from the archives or did they shoot it with the rest of the flashback? Because if it is not reused footage then that means the impala has its' spotlights back and I can't imagine them putting them on for a quick shot then taking them off again.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 25th, 2012 09:21 am (UTC) (Link)
No that was new footage of the Impala with the spotlights back on. From what I've heard the vehicle crews kept them just in case, and so they were put on for the backstory shots and will likely be off again the next time we see her. They've done far more drastic things to the Impala for the sake of a scene, replacing and removing the spotlights wouldn't be too hard, especially since she isn't in the episodes right now.

Mark is always brilliant I do love him. I agree that Lucifer isn't just a figment, there is something more ticking there. I am also wondering about the trap on the ceiling, but it might be a red herring.

I also desperately need an icon that says "screw consciousness, that's what I say." I sort of clapped when he said that..lol
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 23rd, 2012 07:44 am (UTC) (Link)
I might get around to making an icon like that sometime.
ddraggy From: ddraggy Date: February 23rd, 2012 05:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Awesome ep! Looking forward to wherever they're going with the storyline.

I do hope Sam actually tells Dean about his seriously pumped up hallucinations instead of trying to hide it. Won't be too thrilled if they rehash the "my brother doesn't trust me anymore ;_;" for the rest of the season.

And for the first time ever, I actually had to fast forward through a scene because it was TOO SCARY FOR ME. Don't know why the library headdesking freaked me out so much, but yeah >.>
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 23rd, 2012 07:46 am (UTC) (Link)

Communication between Winchesters? Well, we've had a unicorn this season and they're mythical too, so it's a possibility, I suppose.

And for the first time ever, I actually had to fast forward through a scene because it was TOO SCARY FOR ME. Don't know why the library headdesking freaked me out so much, but yeah >.>

Yeah that was hard to watch. Too much like something out of a nightmare, but a great reminder that we are watching a horror show here.
zebra363 From: zebra363 Date: February 23rd, 2012 11:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
-Sam and Dean wake up pretty, in case anyone was wondering.

Those two caps are particularly gorgeous, especially Sam!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 24th, 2012 05:49 am (UTC) (Link)
They are cute boys indeed.
malevolent73 From: malevolent73 Date: February 24th, 2012 03:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
I fully expect the next episode to start exactly where this one left off and Sam will suddenly say, "Dean!!! I'm having a massive crazy hallucination right the fuck now and I need your help!!!" And then Dean jumps up and shakes, then slaps, him and it all goes away. I don't have a clue where it goes after that but that's on my wish list anyway. :)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 24th, 2012 06:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sam voluntarily asking for help with his mental weird crap would be a supernatural occurrence indeed. :-)
