Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 8.11
Warning: Contains profanity, and multiple miscellaneous references, including Doctor Who.

Spoiler and Theory Summary

So... I made the mistake of looking at Felicia Day's Twitter feed to see if there was any news on the next season of The Guild and got an eyeful of Supernatural spoilers instead. Yes, I am a moron, thanks for noticing.

Episode is called LARP and the Real Girl (har har), involves people getting killed at a Ren Faire or SCA event, an over-the-edge gamer, Dean in chainmail, swords and wenches and so on. (I kind of want it to be SCA. I want Dean to do tourney combat and take on some cheating rhino-hide idiot.)

So, I'd say we're due for a light dose of crack after last week, but I'm not making any assumptions about what the show might do to us next at this point.

A last minute bit of speculation before hitting play (spec phobes scroll past this following paragraph) based on what Kevin's doing from last week, and the repeat guest character for this week. Kevin can read the code on the rock but is having trouble interpreting it, right? Charlie is a hacker and good with code. I'm calling now that at some point, Charlie will be helping Kevin interpret the rock code. Because they keep referring to it in computer programming terms and I have a funny sort of feeling about that. However, that funny feeling could just be the flu. :-P


Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 8.11 - "LARP and the Real Girl"

WARNING: This post is going to have a LOT of RPG, SCA and convention fandom references. Also Doctor Who.

-Skipping the THEN.

-*spends far too long staring at the wargaming figures trying to figure out the manufacturer and system before realizing they aren't even the right scale* I should probably mention I've been sick, and may be more easily distracted by irrelevant minutiae than usual.

-"It's just a game!" Guessing 'Lance' is our likely over-the-edge gamer calling up bad things and the guy here with glasses and a shirt he got off Ernie from Sesame Street will be an early victim? Or will 'Lance' be a red herring? Either way, hoping for a balanced portrayal of gamers/SCAdians in this episode.
spn0811 001
spn0811 002

-Nice tatt! Kind of like Yggdrasil (why is that not in my spell check yet? *adds*) Too bad it's evil or something.
spn0811 003

-Drawn and quartered by invisible horses. That's new. Also YUCK. Also definitely not Yggdrasil.

-Music! "China Grove" by the Doobie Brothers.

-"You remember fun, don't you Sam?" Sam's face is starting off very eloquently.
spn0811 004

-"Garth has been tracking us, and other hunters apparently, to assign cases." Suddenly, Castiel et al being able to find the Winchesters despite the rib-runes isn't that complex anymore. All they have to do is ask Garth, or lurk invisibly over his hunter-locating GPS software.

-"Work a case. As long as we're waiting on Kevin, that'll be our fun." Dean's slightly bemused look is also quite eloquent.
spn0811 005

-Taggart and Rosewood, eh? Looks like it might have been Sam's turn to pick the names.

-Tie Report: Sam - Stripes in a complex blue-gray going down to Sam's left, Dean - White stripes on red (possibly some blue in there?) down to Dean's right. Current positioning, the stripes are going towards each other which is good, but the opposite colors could be pointing out that all is not yet entirely well between them. But when has it ever been entirely well?
spn0811 006

-"He lived alone, which was a real shocker, considering this place is full of toys." *pat pat* It's okay Sheriff, you wouldn't understand. Though your mustache is looking rather medieval. Or 70's, hard to say.
spn0811 007

-CHAINMAIL! *fistpump* Sorry. It's a thing.
spn0811 008

-Written by Robbie Thompson, familiar name.

-Funny how Sam went straight to the arm with the fading evil tattoo on it. Must be some latent lingering psychic demon-blood-baby evil-sensing thing Sam has. Sure. *handwave*
spn0811 009

-Directed by Jeannot Szwarc, who also directed the one with the Autons mannequins and the one with the hunter's kid. Hmm.

-"We didn't find any hoofprints." *facepalm* Well, at least the invisible horses could be heard by non-victims. Hm. Are Hell Horses a thing, like Hell Hounds? It's a little crass in method for it to be Mari Llywd, though the sleeping does make the possibility of an archetypal Night Mare interesting, but not likely with the setup.

-"She probably heard the TV, or was having a bad dream, or she was high as balls." Heee. Always a viable excuse for hearing weird things I suppose.
spn0811 010

-"'You shall bleed for your crimes against us,' followed by the emoticon of a skull." *ponders* Would that be (8E? (8=? (•..•)? *shrug*

-"'I am a mage, I will destroy you.'" Pft. Standard gamer back-chat. I've had worse than that for not bringing Doritos.

-"These kids today, with their texting and murder." Heee. Sheriff does have his cute moments. *squints* Incidentally, not sure if I missed it being said before or not, but the Sheriff appears to be 'J. Miller', which is awfully close to being J. Mills, but he's definitely not Sheriff Jody, unless she hit an exceptionally rocky patch after Bobby's death. Also *points behind Sheriff Not-Jody* Random beer stein.
spn0811 011

-D'awwwwwwww. Lance is adorable. I'm leaning toward red herring now myself with the big weepy outburst, though that could be a trick too. He is a role-player after all... *eyeballs*
spn0811 012

-"They were from me but they weren't from me me."/"Did you really think that sentence was gonna clear things up?" Hee. Poor Dean. *pats*
spn0811 013

-"Right, LARPing. Good times." Yes, and the boys have been introduced to the concept before. Any bets on whether they're going to be assumed to be LARPing the Supernatural books again when they get into a big crowd of LARPers? Yeah, yeah, me either.

-Lance: *starts listing dead guy's character's genealogy* People outside the game have no appreciation for detailed character backgrounds.
spn0811 014

-The coming battle of Kingdoms this weekend, eh? Ha. Yeah. Moondor my left foot. It's the SCA with a different hat. Although the last SCAdians I talked to would go up one side of you and down the other if you called it LARPing. Also, the different hat would be a slightly pointy magical hat, since as I recall, the SCA stuck to more history and less fantasy, though given the higher baseline of magic in the Supernatural 'verse, magic use could have historical provenance. Hmm.

-"Because what I really want in a duel is an unmagic wand." Not sure but this could be Dean trying very hard to avoid a spit-take as Sam bobbles his head around in the background.
spn0811 015

-"Oh yee gods, Thorgrimm the Difficult has fallen!" Grief takes whatever form it has to. *nods*

-Why am I not surprised Dean's read Fifty Shades of Grey?

-"Actually it looks kinda awesome." Yep, though it's not all armor, booze, wenches and swains. Mostly.
spn0811 016

-ANACHRONISM! Yeah, it's got older origins than Star Trek, but I'm thinking that's not the intent there. XD
spn0811 017

-Of course Charlie's the frigging Queen. XD
spn0811 018

-Uh oh, marked for death too, on the right arm instead of the left. Hm. So if the dead guy was Lancelot to this soon-to-be-dead-guy's Merlin, who was their Arthur, and where is he on his character development arc?
spn0811 019

-Sudden blood eruptions from everywhere... Not ringing any particular torture bells off-hand. Plague?

-I'm just gonna cap a whole bunch of the LARPers and scenery here, just because.

Heh. Don't know whether the show tapped the local SCA groups for extras, or people in the Lower Mainland SCA also work as extras (a few used to do stunts and props work for local productions) but I see about three or four faces I vaguely recognize from Lower Mainland sci-fi conventions back in the waybacks. *waves*

-*has silly grin through whole "half-orc thief in the stocks" scene* Man, I need to get back into RPGs. The sit around a table and roll dice kind, not the dress up in costumes kind.
spn0811 028

-"Um, guys, we aren't doing the whole genre mash-up thing this weekend, we only do that every third month." HA!! BUSTED!! XD
spn0811 029
spn0811 030

-Suits, couple hundred bucks. Visit to Kinko's to laminate fake ID's, couple bucks. Getting their fake FBI IDs critiqued by some guy in a tabard? PRICELESS. XD
spn0811 031
spn0811 032
spn0811 033

-"Her majesty is overseeing new squires on the pitch as we speak." YES. BRING ON THE PADDED SWORDS!
spn0811 034

-Hi Felicia! I mean Charlie! Nice epaulets!
spn0811 035

-"Nice balance."/"Dude!" *sneeeeeeeerk*
spn0811 036
spn0811 037

-"My name is Carrie Heinlein." Ahahahaha. Nothing like consistency in picking fake names.

-"If you guys are here, monsters are here." Fairly safe assumption, yeah.
spn0811 038
spn0811 039

-"Is there such a thing as a monster magnet?" Well, in GURPS there's Weirdness Magnet, and there's something similar in the Deadlands system I think, but if anyone's got something like that, the Winchesters do.

-"Have fun storming the castle." Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
spn0811 040

-I'm sorry, but I have to pause this and laugh for about a year. It's not the crown itself so much as the rakish tilt. XD
spn0811 041

-"It's a Celtic magic symbol. At least it was in my favourite video game." Heeeeee! Geek pop culture needs to get more use as a research tool on this show.

-Don't know the rules of the game or which side is what, but the green guys better duck and cover, since they don't have any siege engines and if red and muddy-brown team up on the blues or even if the reds are just on their way to pound the snot out of the blues, the greens would be like an hors d'oeuvre. I'm thinking the greens are probably elves.

spn0811 044
spn0811 045
spn0811 046
spn0811 047

-"I like my life here. I want to stay and fight or it." Charlie, Carrie, whatever she's calling herself is crazy as hell in some ways, but she really is awesome.
spn0811 048
spn0811 049

-Belladonna. Not plague then. And wikipedia's list of symptoms of belladonna poisoning don't seem to include "bleeding from the everything", but that's okay, it's just wikipedia. *handwave, with exertion of willpower not to go looking for a poison that would cause bleeding from the everything*

-"The porn star?" *facepalm* *headshake* *giggle*
spn0811 050

-"Just like they couldn't find ropes in Ed's apartment." Or horses, and they'd be harder to hide. Just saying.

-"There are no laptops in Moondor. What? There are rules!" *nods* The boys do still have smartphones though, so there might be some use in them.
spn0811 051

-Tech tent. Or that. Hunh. It's been a long time since I interacted in any way with the SCA, is that a thing now?

-Love Dean's little smirk at getting to wear garb. He used to not be so into the costume thing ages ago.
spn0811 052

-The sign. Bwahahahaha! XD
spn0811 053

-Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Okay. That video game the guy is playing looks like Dragon Age II, and the character on his screen is Tallis, the character Felicia Day voiced for it and which was modeled on her. Never played the game myself though, so I could be wrong.
spn0811 054

-YES! \o/
spn0811 055
spn0811 056
spn0811 057
spn0811 058

-Good that Dean's talking about the whole him and Sam situation with someone. However... "Now he's more committed than ever, so there's that." Dean, this is you, not buying your own crap.
spn0811 059

-"Are we still talking about Sam, or did you break up with someone too?" I do like Charlie/Carrie/Queen Thing. She has a way of bypassing the Winchester emotional smokescreen sometimes.
spn0811 060

-"D&D, Gamma World, Car Wars-" *FLAIL* CAR WARS! Not GURPS but a Steve Jackson Games product regardless! WOO! \o/

-"Out there in the real world, you are a hero." Yep. But nobody knows about it or can know about it. Not that you and Sam would know anything about being unheralded heroes, right Dean?
spn0811 061
spn0811 062

-Okay, this looks like a list of accident etc reports for previous non-fatal victims, there's a tree tatt, and I've gotta say the broken ankles at the top of the list are just OW. *wince*
spn0811 063

-*close up of said ankles* AUAUGJAHGAHGAGHAAAAAAH!!! No I'm not capping those. Poor woman. AUGH.

-"No, sorry, but I'll look it up." ...Didn't this person say her character name was something 'the wicked'? In a typical procedural/crime drama, wouldn't the perp be tending to insert themselves into the investigation right around now? And isn't she a bit too cool and unbothered by the photos of her friends' (known, real) injuries, and some random guy inna suit looking at their medical files? And doesn't she have a biggish speaking part? I CALL WHATS-HER-NAME THE BLONDE-PERSON AS THE PERPETRATOR! *points accusing finger*
spn0811 064

-Case first, horn-dogging later, Dean Charlie. (Hee!)
spn0811 065

-And she knows too much about who's what where, and still isn't even slightly bothered about some random in a suit on a non-crossover weekend looking at LARPers medical files and case reports. It's totally her. And she's not bothered about telling Sam anything because she's going to go off and make him sprout a tattoo right after this.
spn0811 066

-Oh, great, Fairy Magic. We haven't heard from that dimension in a long time, wonder what they've been up to since the alien abductions. "Tree of Pain." Pffffffft. Yeah. Sure. Okay. And they knew the name of it to type it into the search bar to find it too. Or maybe Sam typed 'tree' and 'of pain' was an autocomplete option. Yeah. *handwave*
spn0811 067

-"Wait, fairy magic can be bad?" Okay, if I hadn't already been sure, she was the perp and playing Sam as a patsy before, I am now. No gamer worth their dice thinks fairies/fae are 100% happy kindly Disney creatures. *points accusing finger again*
spn0811 068

-"Yeah of course. Nope. Nope I haven't seen it." Heheh. Nice cover, Mr. Half-orc. *pats*
spn0811 069

-"First time for a lot of things if you want to come by my tent later." *snerk* What happens in Moondor, stays in Moondor.
spn0811 070
spn0811 071

-"This is my new... Handmaiden." BWAHAHAHA! So many points to Dean for playing that off with a relatively straight face.
spn0811 072

-*giggles through the rest of the scene* Although really, sending the Queen off unguarded without a weapon is probably not a great idea right now. For case reasons or game reasons.

-Aaaaand we switch to the stalker!cam to prove me right. Thanks, show!
spn0811 073

-Dark haired sort-of burly person, but it's probably the Orcs making a move rather than the murderer, so at least there's that. Ah, and love those BC woods.
spn0811 074

-Yep, if you're going to be accosted alone in the woods, it's best to be accosted by someone you can defeat with a beanbag. Right in the nose!
spn0811 075

spn0811 076

-"You attend to the Queen's laundry and chamber-pots." Thinking Dean might have been unclear on the concept of handmaiden. Hee! Dean's face.
spn0811 077

-"We're going to do a little prisoner exchange, try to draw their King out of hiding." And, as always, in a new world setting, whatever it is, Dean adapts to it, Sam tries to make it adapt to him. Hee!
spn0811 078
spn0811 079

-Gotta say, these LARPers have some damn fine pavilions.
spn0811 080

-PORTAL!!! \o/ Just, with the out one door and in the other. It's a video game, I've never played it. But anyway, yeah. That little tesser-space loop between the doors is pretty certainly not part of the LARP. I still say it's the tech tent blonde person under the skull mask. Unless it's what's his name the guy in the tabard, he's been talking a lot too. Nah, it's tech tent person. Probably. Yeah. *nods*
spn0811 081

-"I'm just an IT girl, standing in front of a monster, asking it not to kill her." HA! Notting Hill reference? That's unexpected. XD
spn0811 082

-Wait, who the heck are you? O.o
spn0811 083

-"That is all I want as well." Ohhhhhhhh! She's bound by someone! Okay, awesome!! Well, I mean, not awesome for the fae person obviously, or an awesome thing to do to any sentient being without their say so, but an awesome plot *handwave* thingy.
spn0811 084
spn0811 085

-*facepalm* Case and survival first, Charlie! Then you can try to seduce the hot fae woman.
spn0811 086

-Yes, because heading into the woods in the dark with a bunch of clueless mundanes always helps.
spn0811 087

-Oh this guy practically screams 'dupe'. Look for whoever advised him on his coat of arms instead.
spn0811 088

-"We don't want to freak out the mundanes." *BIG GRIN* *VICTORY ARMS FOREVER* \o/ I really really need to game. Or go to a con. Just a little con. *sigh*
spn0811 089

-Dean, King of subtlety.
spn0811 090

-Well, okay, yeah, taking a crest from a randomly appearing tattoo works too. Damn cool for a coat of arms origin story, actually.
spn0811 091

-"Here, take 'em." Who the hell is gonna mug you at a LARP for your ears, dude? Though really, gunfire will tend to make people do strange things. Heh. It's a good thing Dean didn't pull this in my last gaming group. Most of the players were military, security, or similar professions, and Dean would have been on the ground chewing mulch long before he fired.
spn0811 092

-"I noticed something odd down by the creek." And then there are the awesome ones who can cope when the weird gets potentially lethal and step up to help. You rock, half-orc (or I guess orc, whatever *handwave*) thief guy. (He's been looking really familiar... has he been in a previous episode, or is it the usual Vancouver actor syndrome?)
spn0811 093

-"You mean she's not into Orcs?" Aw. Not quite, honey. *pats* (Interesting that tabard guy is still willing to follow them after the gunfire... Still thinking the perp is the person from the tech tent, but maybe she's got a henchdude in tabard-guy? Or he's just coming along as the emergency backup victim. Hmm.)

-Seriously, case first, nookie later.
spn0811 094

-"I don't know his name, but I was brought here to do his bidding." His, hunh? The accusing finger swings more towards tabard-guy. Unless she's never met her summoner and is assuming, or is a little wobbly on human gender pronouns.

-"I'd never hurt anyone, I'm a fairy. The good kind." *koffBULLSHITkoffPOSSIBLYkoff* Yeah, definitely back off on the seduction there Charlie. Hm. Maybe the fae has a hold over the guy who summoned her rather that vice versa, and maybe she glamoured herself to be the girl in the tech tent? Hmm.
spn0811 095

-"A hero must take my master's book of magic and destroy it, breaking the spell." Releasing her to go home, or releasing her to run amok with full fairy power? Hmm...

-"My name is Charlie Bradbury, and I am here to rescue you." Awwww. Heee. And watch out Charlie! It could be a trap!
spn0811 096
spn0811 097

-"A handmaiden and a time traveller rescue the Queen? I think not, kind lady." Yeah, tabard-guy's skipped a reality groove there. (And he obviously hasn't watched much Doctor Who, though I can't think of any of the Doctor's companions who wouldn't have some serious issues with being dismissed as a handmaiden. Well, except Katarina, one of the first Doctor's very short-lived companions who was, literally, a handmaiden.) Could be a coping mechanism for dealing with the gunfire, could be a sign he's murdering people using a bound fae person as a weapon.

-Oh my god, it's very nearly an old canvas Girl Guide tent! No guy-lines or tarp though, and there were never skulls on posts in front of the ones in the camps I was in, not that there wouldn't have been had the Guides had more of a direct say in things.
spn0811 098

spn0811 099

-Ahem. The case, Charlie? Rescue first, nookie later? Am I repeating myself enough yet?
spn0811 100

-Apparently not. Aaand tabard-guy breezes blithely into the tent behind the Winchesters under the cover of, well, a very distracting distraction. *snerk*
spn0811 101

-Darn. I still think the tech tent person is up to something though. Though maybe she was just trying to get into Sam's pants. Still... *eyeballs*
spn0811 102

-Heeee! It's the squawking chicken noise that makes it work.
spn0811 103

-"My name is Boltar the Furious!" Well, you've certainly been hiding your appellation well up to this point. Probably should have some XP docked for not playing your alignment, or disadvantages or whatever character trait system Moondor has.
spn0811 104

-"Paying off other players with real money instead of Moondor currency. They were cheating!" And so they died. Lethal adherence to the rules. Lawful Evil, perhaps?

-"I came here to be different." Well, you've certainly succeeded in that, enslaving a fae being and murdering people. Not the good kind of different though.

-"How'd you get it?"/"...ebay?" *sneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerk* Well, Sam and Dean have on occasion done similar, so whatever works.
spn0811 105

-Speaking of tourney rules, real blades are also against them, sunshine.
spn0811 106

-"Gilda, the big one!" HEEEEEEEEE!!! Sam 'the big one'.
spn0811 107

-GO CHARLIE, going after the real sword with the padded one! Uncappably, damn it.

-Dean has this face, see, it does these things that make me splorf tea.
spn0811 108

-Sam's getting choked! WHAT DAY IS IT? \o/
spn0811 109

-"Hey, Jerry. I'm the one who saves damsels in distress around here." *glee*
spn0811 110

-Oh good! Stabbing it ALA Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets worked. 'Cause I was gonna say, there's a nice fireplace right behind you if that falls through. Not that I would ever normally advise burning or destroying a book, but if it's a book that's being used to enslave someone and force them to murder, it probably could do with some extreme retroactive editing.
spn0811 111

-"He must face a fairy tribunal for his sins." Yeah. Have fun with that, Boltar.

-"Call me, maybe?" *FACEPALM*
spn0811 112

-"I gotta face reality from now on. Sadly, reality actually includes monsters, but what are you gonna do?" Aw.
spn0811 113

-"Apart from the fact that you blocked me from banging a fairy-" Now, really, that wasn't Dean so much as the plot. I mean Boltar leading them into the trap and stuff. I'm sure preventing Charlie from getting friendly with Gilda was the very last thing on Dean's priority list.

-Hee! I like Charlie. I really do. I know I'm supposed to like her as a fan avatar-type character or whatever, but I really do like her. Of course this means she's now doomed. Sigh.
spn0811 114

-And the boys actually talk? "Having fun won't help me. It'll help both of us." Awwwwwww.

spn0811 115

-Excuse me I need to die laughing now.

ETA: What the heck, have an icon.

Credit me if you're insane enough to use it.

-The LARPers must be really well known in this park for someone to be throwing a frisbee around so close to them. Also bwahahahahahah!
spn0811 120

-I'm just gonna cap, because crack this intense only comes around on screen once in a very long while.

I'm not sure ab out other events... but the SCA's Pennsic war has Mystic Mail which could be considered a tech tent... you can get on line, charge your phone and other mundane things there.

and I really enjoyed your review it was well written and made me giggle. On whole the entire episode made me want to get out the garb and go to an event...
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: January 27th, 2013 05:09 am (UTC) (Link)
These days there would pretty much have to be something where people could get access to their email etc. I never went to any big events, just mainly knew people involved, and I did go to a feast once, so the details of the SCA are a vague shape only to me. :-)

Glad you liked the post! I know what you mean about wanting to go to an event, although since I'm not SCAdian I'm more wanting to game or go to a con. It's been far too long.
frostfalcon From: frostfalcon Date: January 28th, 2013 06:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
I haven't been to any sort of Con in ages, I should do that. I wonder what's coming up... LOL

Oh I miss the SCA. *Stares longingly at costume* Swords, Dean in mail....everything!!! I was going with the Wild Hunt in the beginning, and the skull had me hoping, but no dice. I was with you on Yggdrasil too. I almost expired at the end - hells bells. I do love Charlie, so yes, doomed:P Also, ponytail:D

I was thinking the Wild Hunt as well, and while it would be awesome for that to show up, I'd be a little nervous of how the show would depict it.

Just added a ponytail-related icon above if you're interested.

I had the same misgivings about that. Icon is awesome!

The episode was awesome, but this recap was the BEST EVER.

I did not notice that Dean was wearing a string of EARS around his neck!

Thank you, glad you enjoyed it! The string of ears did me in completely. XD

This ep, oh -GAWD- this ep.

Just for the record, you're right about the game that was playing in the tech tent. It was a downloadable content pack called 'Mark of the Assassin', and you could sorta-romance Tallis. Which made me giggle for a good five minutes when I saw it on SPN. Two of my fandom loves colliding on screen? Yes please.

Is it sad that I kinda want to get into LARP now? Or SCA? I doubt there's any groups nearby, though. Stupid boonies. :(

Loved your recap, as always. <3 :)

I don't think it's sad to want to get involved in roleplaying of some kind after that episode. It's a heck of a lot of fun to get away from the world for a while, but finding the time is hard.

I never got involved in the SCA myself, but there are events and chapters all over the world. If you're curious, here is the main site you can find your region (note, they sometimes post region maps not-North-upwards, so it looks like an unfamiliar area) and look for local chapters in the contact lists, or just look at the kind of stuff going on. There is likely an introduction page or PDF somewhere.

Best episode this season if you ask me! They can't possibly kill Felicia's character off - there'd be a full blown fandom riot! I think she works so well because, firstly, everyone likes Felicia, and, secondly, because Charlie's gay. She's never going to come between the boys as a love interest, which is what seems to upset so many of the fangirls!

Also, it made a refreshing change to see a scene of two girls kissing which wasn't done in a salacious way to titillate male viewers.

Some great scenes between Dean and Charlie too - Jensen and Felicia have definite chemistry going on!

Oh if they kill Charlie off, there'll be some noise, but no one on this show is unkillable. Felicia's geek cred is definitely keeping a lot of the wolves at bay. I like the way they've handled Charlie's sexuality so far, it's just a matter of fact, no big deal. She and Jensen work really well together, and I am hoping that since Dean seems to be okay with talking to her about things going on with him and Sam, that she might become more of a social confidant and friend for them as well as the occasional tech assist resource.

Hee, it was a fun episode. And it had charlie who is awesome. She can team up with Sheriff Mills (what is she up to these days, assuming she wasn't the sheriff in this ep - she would have said something, right?) and they can be awesome together.

I'd like to seen Jody return again too. She's awesome.
