Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 7.16
It's been a while since I've done one of these, so I'm quite rusty. This is a very late reaction post for 7.16

Spoiler and Theory Summary

Cursed dancing shoes. Probably means the faeries are returning, which would be fun, but it could mean just cursed shoes, which would also be fun.

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 7.16 - ??? "Out with the Old"

-Debated watching the THEN because it's been a while, but skipped it. So the laughter overtop of the Now is rather unnerving....

-...as is Show starting off with restful music and ballet dancing, because even if I hadn't already heard about the curse, I'd know exactly where this was heading. This is going to get messy.
Photo 1

-Um. Yeah. And the shoes are sitting there perfectly clean. That's not suspicious at allllll.
Photo 2

-YAY, an appearance by actual Lower Mainland snow! \o/
Photo 3

-Title: "Out with the Old". Hmm...

-The Leviathans have and archeological dig, a factory in Saudi Arabia, a fishery in Jakarta. Hmm. And yachts, was it from a prior episode? Hmm. There is a LOT of things that an archeological dig could be after. And that field they're off a number on that Bobby told them about, sort of. It's going to be interesting to see what all this is in aid of in the end.

-"Where the hell is Tromsø?"/"Norway, you moron." Dean's exasperated phone waving, hee. Also Tromsø, among many other things, claims to be the location of the world's northernmost mosque, make of that what you will.

-...hang on. Random. Yachts and fisheries equals lots of boats. Something where there's a specific global grid patter that needs to be established, including over the oceans using boats? Are they going to suck the whole planet into Purgatory? No, that doesn't make sense... Wonder what the Saudi Arabian factory is making? Arg. Anyway.

-"And another thing-" *beep* Frank is an ass, but he's an entertaining ass.

-"Every time I close my eyes, Lucifer is yelling into my head." Excellent reason to drink more coffee! I have similar reasons for doing so at work. *nods*

-"You know he's not actually... *handflop*" I DON'T THINK YOU SHOULD ASSUME SUCH THINGS, DEAN. Stranger things have happened. Particularly to the two of you. Just sayin'

-"I saw Black Swan. Twice." Oh really? I'm going to assume someone has ficced that already. Wonder when he did that without Sam knowing? Sometime when he was with Lisa maybe?
Photo 4

-Oh dear god, the heap of the week is a late seventies Trans Am. *facepalm*
Photo 5

-Written by Robert Singer, very familiar name, and Jenny Klein, not so familiar. Directed by John F. Showalter, seen him before.

-OH CRAP, TIE REPORT. SAM IS STRIPELESS, REPEAT, SAM IS STRIPELESS. BAD THINGS ARE GOING ON HERE YOU GUYS. No wait, there's a very faint texture stripe sloping down to his left, but it's barely there. Sam's in deep deep trouble and barely hanging on. Dean's tie is complex white stripes on blue, sloping to Dean's right. the stripes are sloping towards each other, and Dean's noticing something's not right with Sam, but he's not realizing how screwed up Sam really is. THIS IS SERIOUS, YOU GUYS.
Photo 6

-Of course you all are 5 episodes ahead of me going, "OMG WE KNOW, WAIT FOR IT" I'm sure.

-Portland police, eye-rolling at Feds and allowing children the opportunity to steal cursed evidence.
Photo 7

-...or get ambushed by cursed evidence in the bathroom. *facepalm*
Photo 8

-Shoes that shrink to fit your feet are not a good sign, honey. This kid is adorable though, I mean look at that little doomed face!
Photo 9

-Yes, shoes that make you spontaneously levitate aren't exactly normal either.

-Oh dear, if anyone walks in on them wrestling with a small struggling girl in the ladies room, there is no way in hell it's going to look good, ever.
Photo 10

-However, Dean getting kicked in the face by an apologetic kid who can't help doing it is funny. Her 'sorry!'s are making me giggle. And then there's Dean's face.
Photo 11

-"I'm goin' with cursed object!" And that's why people think Sam's the smart one. *pats him*
Photo 12

-"Didn't we put those in the trunk?" Heeeeee! They're stalking you. Are we going to get Dean in toe-shoes?

-"Do they look like they're your size?"/"Shut up." Heeeeeee!

-"Getting a strong urge to Prince Siegfried myself into oblivion." Sorry, I'm just going to sit here and laugh for a very long while right now. There. Ow. Oh dear. Poor Dean.
Photo 13

-"My mother had them in that box." Sigh. Curse box. With holes in the lid though so who knows how effective in may have been. Regardless, *facepalm*
Photo 14

-I will admit, I am snorting with laughter. Poor Dean.
Photo 15

-"I'm trying to get rid of it all." Oh crap. This is why hunters and keepers of the weird should let their families know about what they do. Or at least which boxes to have buried under ten feet of concrete when they die. XD
Photo 16

-So it's more than just the shoes then. Ah! Then I haven't been as spoiled for this episode as I thought I might be. Cool.

-Oh god, an old kitchen grinder. My mom had one of those when I was a kid. This is going to be very nasty indeed.
Photo 17

-And old scissors... If one person bought all the cursed items it would simplify things, but they are going to have a very messy death. Hey, look, Biggerson's coupons. It's weird, but one reason I'm looking forward to the inevitable thwarting and dispatch of the Leviathans and their plot is so that Biggerson's can get a good house-clearing and go back to being a happy family restaurant that bad things happen at, and not a source of mind-control turducken burgers, or whatever they've moved on to from that.
Photo 18

-Sitting here wincing at the cucumber-cutting, since I still have a bandaged cut from a bit of poor judgement with a kitchen slicer two weeks ago.

-And an old kettle. That is whistling, yet doesn't seem to have a spout designed to whistle. That's nice. If you are living in an episode of Supernatural, DO NOT GO ANTIQUING, IT WILL KILL YOU.
Photo 19

-Um, metal handle, metal kettle, even if it's not cursed you're about to burn the hell out of your hand.
Photo 20

Photo 21

-Scott's Mom's safe is rather nifty.
Photo 22

-Yep, lower mainland snow. Pretty and fluffy one day, dispirited slop the next.
Photo 23

Photo 24

-"And a vintage gentleman's magazine sold to Peter Yankit, 27 Johnson Lane." Oh really now. That's either a fake name and address, or they are having fun with synonyms tonight. XD

Photo 25

-Yes child, go right up to the old thing that's whispering your name in a creepy way and stick your face right next to it. GAAAAAAH. NONE OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE ANY SELF-PRESERVATION.
Photo 26

-And again, Supernatural and (temporarily) evil kids making yet another great argument for birth control.
Photo 27

-"Hey, I got the porn." Of course. It's the hunt Dean's been preparing for since he hit puberty. I'm amazed that wasn't a fake address and name, and just some fun with euphemisms. Or a slight riff on Exec Producer Peter Johnson's name?

-Real estate lady, and change of mind, and accidentally dead. Yep, the woman with the overloaded minion is absolutely up to something. Which was obvious.

-"Feelin' guilty ain't gonna bring 'em back. Best you can do is live your life the way that you think would make her proud. Or at least not embarrass the crap out of her." Oh Dean. Yeah. Ooof.
Photo 28

-Taking a personal break here for a minute.

-Okay, sorry, I wasn't expecting that. Carrying on.

-Aside from my personal take on that line, it occurs to me that what might make this guy's mom proud may not be the choice with the least collateral damage, considering how she died.

-"Believe me, I got it." Somehow I doubt that. And it's not just because for some reason this actor looks like a ballet dancer to me and I don't know why.
Photo 29

-Yes, hello plot.
Photo 30
Photo 31

-"Hard to find good help these days." Aw, poor George. I'm kind of thinking these two are Leviathans, but not sure. They seem to have that 'pretending to be human' vibe. Also, George has a conspicuously stripey tie, so maybe he'll turn out all right.
Photo 32

-"It's the future that's the real adventure." Yeaaaah, she's totally a Leviathan.

-When the dedicated flunky looks alarmed, run.
Photo 33

Photo 34

-"You know that Mr. Roman doesn't like us calling attention to ours-" An intelligent underling needs to also be a smart underling who knows when to stand back and let the boss bury herself rather than get immediately eaten. Poor flunky.
Photo 35

-"Should have quit smoking, it can be hazardous to your health." Yes. It can make you break your neck in your sleep even. They should put that on the warning labels.

-Oh crap, Sam yawning behind the wheel is a bad thing for so many reasons.
Photo 36

-"I don't mean to double-dip in your crazy sauce, no offense-"/"None taken, fudge pop." Do I even want to know what that means? O.o

-GeoThrive, hunh? Hmmm.... Some potential planetary takeover implications in that for sure.
Photo 37

-Okay, Sam? Lucifer or no Lucifer, PULL THE HELL OVER. NOW.
Photo 38

-That could be one of the scariest things I've seen on this show for a while. Visceral reaction. SAM!!!
Photo 39

-Ohgoditsasemi. O.O

-Avoided. Meeeeeeep. PULL OVER, SAM. Hell, let Luci take the wheel for a bit, he's probably in better condition to drive than you are right now.

-"How about make me a new one."/"How about you eat me."/"...Don't tempt me." Hehehe.

-And now George has a legit excuse for giving his boss a messed up coffee. WINCHESTER ALERT!
Photo 40
Photo 41

-"Eating him is pretty much what I was thinking." Can we keep George? Like, off the realtor, promote the flunky to adversary status and have him flail around being adorably threatening for an episode or two?
Photo 42

-"You see a Winchester, you don't eat him. You tell me, and I eat him!" Hahahahahaha.
Photo 43

-Who ever the realtor's Leviathan took over first to learn about the world must have been a big fan of Dr. Evil from Austin Powers.

-Dean and pie. All is right with some tiny part of Dean's world.
Photo 44

-"It's all tied together, Dean." You'd be a lot more reassuring if you said that without the crazy eyes, Frank.
Photo 45

-"Call me if you don't die." Frank is such a ray of sunshine.

-"He's singing Stairway to Heaven." Aw, and we don't get to see.

-"I looked in one of mom's old mirrors and now I want to rip my face off." TRAP. TRAP. OMG TRAP.

-Yep. So, is he a Leviathan too, or in league with them? There's got to be a reason why they didn't just mimic him and do it themselves. (Oooo, I see a sword on the wall!)
Photo 46

-"We will kill him."/"*whimper*" Aw poor Scott. Hunter's kids really get screwed whether they knew they were hunter's kids or not, don't they.
Photo 47

-You know, I suppose they haven't run into Leviathans for a while now, but you'd think it might be wise to start packing flasks of Borax around along with the flasks of holy water and salt.

-"There's a bucket of that stuff that you love throwing at us right there." *GASP* GEORGE! \o/ Well, anything to get you out from under the Boss I suppose!

-"Dunk me before she sees!" Oh George, honey, no. Get your Boss offed, you can hang out in Portland being Scott's cousin or whatever and stop eating people, and work of re-building your self-esteem.

-Aw, I liked George. :-(

-"The sword!" IT WAS ON THE WALL. Now throw the bucket at the head Leviathan and let George live.

-Meanwhile, Dean is getting his ass kicked and thrown into everything ever. It was Friday at one point, so no shock there.
Photo 48

-"You want to eat your Boss?"/"You got a better way to make her stay dead?" Well, they could dissolve her head in that handy bucket of Borax, but what the hell.

-When the bad guys have to explain the plot to you, you really haven't been paying close enough attention.
Photo 49

-"Why would Dick Roman want to cure cancer?"/"Because we're only here to help." Suuuuure. Look at that face.
Photo 50

-So far they've had the Turducken pacification burgers, and now curing cancer. Hm. Finding a way to keep the food herds pacified and healthy when they take over the planet? Not big enough though. GeoThrive. Hm. Helping the world live so they can eat it for longer. Still not big enough.



-AND IT'S PLAYING AT FRANK'S PLACE TOO. OH CRAP. Okay, Frank's totally dead.

-Ooo. Just a bit. But there's no corpse so either he's not actually dead, or the Leviathans ate him.
Photo 51

-"Not good." Dean, king of the understatement.
Photo 52

Being a current Portland dweller, I was honestly quite amused by the portrayal of my locale. Also, of the incompetence of the local law enforcement. Seriously, it was funny. Also funny -- the total inappropriateness of that rescuing the little girl from the cursed slippers in the bathroom scene. So very wrong, so very funny because it was actually well-intentioned. Also -- yes, Dean getting kicked in the face accompanied by the little girl's "sorry!s" will never not be amusing. Hee!!!

I also rather adored the connections between the "cursed" plotlines that ended up entertwining for the payoff.

Good to hear from you again and see you getting back in the saddle. I hope that RL gets better, day by day. *hugs*

I always like when the obvious answer isn't the whole answer. Dean getting beat up by kids who aren't even trying needs to happen more often.

I'd forgotten how much I love your recaps!!!

And tie report!

And your observations of things like Biggerson's coupons and sword on wall that went right past me!

And your wonderful sense of humor!!!

Can't wait for the next one!

*blush* Thank you!

\o/ An new recap - yay!

I loved the leviathans, especially George. And yeah, the semi scene was one of the scariest moments on the show in AGES.

- one minor quibble: I don't think it's ever been confirmed that borax kills Leviathans - it may just incapacitate them for longer periods.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 8th, 2012 05:24 am (UTC) (Link)
No, I know, Borax is like holy water like that, and it takes decapitation too to kill a Leviathan. I just figured George was intending to throw himself under the Winchester bus in a permanent way there and figuring they'd do the follow up decapitation.
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: May 7th, 2012 05:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yay, nice to see your tie report again!

(And how beautiful does Dean look in the cap where he's talking about Black Swan...? *sigh*)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 8th, 2012 05:25 am (UTC) (Link)
Certainly a lot more enthusiastic than I thought Dean would ever look about ballet.
ciaranbochna From: ciaranbochna Date: May 9th, 2012 06:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
You know, it seems fitting that he is obsessed with Black Swan. Although, having seen it at the theatre, it causes me all sorts of worry on Dean's behalf.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Leviathans, and I really did love George:)

I haven't seen Black Swan, but I probably will at some point. I suspect it's one of those ones that could mess with my head though from what I've heard, so it'll have to be some day when my head is in a position to be messed with.
ciaranbochna From: ciaranbochna Date: May 13th, 2012 07:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
It is one of those psychologically disturbing descents, oh gods yes. Worth watching at some point far in the future.
ilikemyhumordry From: ilikemyhumordry Date: May 11th, 2012 05:34 am (UTC) (Link)
Glad to have you back.


OH yeah, show has taught us well. I heard the first rift, went "ohHELL-now-theyre-all-deaddeadDEAD" and spent the entire ride to Franks completely freaking the heck out.

caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 12th, 2012 04:47 am (UTC) (Link)
I have to change the station if that song comes on the radio, even now. XD
ilikemyhumordry From: ilikemyhumordry Date: May 12th, 2012 05:38 am (UTC) (Link)
I feel your pain. I can identify that song in like, three notes now. Gah. XD
phorenice From: phorenice Date: May 11th, 2012 06:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh hey! You're back! And it's funny and insight-ful and makes me want to rewatch the ep - just as if you never left.

I know I don't comment all that often (if at all), but I love your works and was sorry to read about your real life troubles. I hope things are getting better.

oh, and btw:
"I saw Black Swan. Twice." Oh really? I'm going to assume someone has ficced that already. Someone has. In a very non-cracky way that totally makes sense. (No spoilers beyond 7.16)

caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 12th, 2012 04:49 am (UTC) (Link)
Aw, thank you! Things are what they are.

I should have guessed ficwriter1966 would be on the story. I'll have to check that out.

It's so good to see a review from you again - and beautifully done as ever. (I think of you every time I see them wearing ties now - your analysis is awesome!)

I totally agree that the scene with Sam falling asleep at the wheel was the most scared I've been watching Supernatural for ages. Nothing like a bit of 'it could happen to anyone' true-life danger in among all the purgatory monsters and goopy burgers.

Sorry that RL is tough for you right now.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 13th, 2012 08:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's going to be a slow haul getting through the rest of the season, but I'll be posting more as I can. My aim of catching up before the finale is completely shot though.
