Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 8.16 - CaffieneKittySpace — LiveJournal
('i' before 'e' if you're looking for me)
Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 8.16
Let's see if I remember how to do this. According to the dates on the screencaps, it has taken me two months to watch this one episode... So this could be a bit disjointed. O.o

Warning: Contains profanity.

Spoiler and Theory Summary

Nothing known about this one, but this was aired just before the spring hiatus, so expecting some significant revelation, probably involving Castiel, because we haven't heard from him for a bit and there was all kinds of bad in his corner when we last saw him. (Aw, Samandiriel)

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 8.16 - "???" "Remember the Titans"

Due to work, my 'do anything but work' schedule is shot to crap, so I'm trying a different form of time management from now on. If it works, I'll be able to keep these caught up, if it doesn't, I'll be playing catchup, but real life has to take priority.

ETA: ...Aaaand 2 months later it's quite obvious that the time management plan didn't work at ALL. Sigh.

-36 seconds, might be the shortest THEN yet.

-Drinking and driving in the pre-credits sequence. Guy has a death wish on a few levels.
spn0816 001

-Great Falls. Not a foreshadowingly-named location at all.

-He falls asleep behind the wheel, and then to wake himself up he has another drink of beer. How has this guy lived long enough to even make it into the pre-credits sequence?

-Bad night for walking along a dark road. On the technically up side, if the drunk driver runs you down, you have my permission to haunt the living crap out of him for eternity.
spn0816 002

-And just when the drunk driver looked like he couldn't be more of a douche, without even checking to see if the guy he hit is alive, or calling for an ambulance, he drives off, making it a hit and run. Pedestrian dude's ghost, get him.
spn0816 003

-EAAAAUAAUUUUAUAUAUUAUAUAUAUGAAGACH!!!! Well. I guess he's not going to turn out to be not dead. The police car turning its flashers on made me snerk, although I do realize they aren't doing it just to let the bird know it's messing with a crime scene.
spn0816 004

-Darn, for a second there I was hoping it would be Sheriff Jodie. Aw.
spn0816 005

-No matter how often we're shown the dead guy's face, I keep expecting a soundtrack ZING and his eyes to pop open.
spn0816 006

-Heh. Not much of a ZING but bingo. Well, if you aren't a ghost, you're otherwise undead or something too damn tough to be killed by a drunk driver. So, go get 'im.
spn0816 007

-The instant healing is also a helpful feature. *nods*

-Is it sad that I really want to see, like, a jack-o-lantern, or a Christmas wreath or things like that on the door to the boy's super-secret lair of awesomeness?
spn0816 008
Also, title: "Remember the Titans" Hm. Have we had Titans before? My memory's gone fuzzy. It's that or an undead football team fighting racial segregation, which would beat all hell out of a racist truck.

-SAM. TALK TO YOUR BROTHER. OR A HOSPITAL. UNEXPLAINED BLEEDING IS NOT A THING TO IGNORE. Though really, it's not unexplained I suppose, it's just a side effect of questing to close the gates of Hell permanently and maybe some sign that you're mutating or becoming radioactive or something BUT MY POINT STANDS.
spn0816 009
spn0816 010

-I don't know why Dean in a bathrobe is so fascinating to me, maybe it's the similarity to a long-coat (Does this make Dean a Badass Bathrobe?) or the Arthur-Dent-ness, or just Dean Winchester strolling around in loungewear with a cup of coffee like he doesn't have any urgent evil to kill, but I find it fascinating.
spn0816 011

-"What's up with you?"/"Nothing. Why?" Sam, this is why you should not lie, because you suck at it. Forever.
spn0816 012
*eyes gas-masks nervously*

-I'm just gonna pause for a moment to drool over the set and props and things.
spn0816 013
Okay, I'm good.

-AND IN THE SUPERNATURAL UNIVERSE, THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER STILL HAS A PRINT EDITION, AND THE BOYS STILL USE IT TO FIND CASES. I mean it makes sense, it's a higher mana world so it's bullshit to useful content ratio is much more sale-able. Anyway, HEE! \o/
spn0816 014

-"Saw his insides spilled out all over the place." Slight exaggeration on the trooper's part there. Less 'all over the place' more 'inside a remarkably tidy scavenger bird.' Hm. What happens to zombie flesh eaten by an animal? Did it regenerate when the guy did, or did it stay dead meat because it wasn't connected to him anymore? There could be a very distressed bird out there.

-HI CAR!!! *waves* Shiny!
spn0816 015

-"We don't track zombie activity because there's no such thing as zombies." Hehehehe.

-Written by Daniel Loflin, flying without his usual wingman tonight.

-Tie Report: Dean - Kind of a moss-green with white stripes going down to Dean's right. An unusually subtle color for Dean, hm. On the job, but distracted, probably by Sam's weirdness. Sam - Double white or pale blue stripes on a gradated shades-of-drying-blood tie, the gradations of which are so distinct as to be even more stripes, all going down to Sam's left. Sam is on more than one job, and has sub-levels of on-the-job-ness, and the color of the tie doesn't need further exposition. Currently the way the boys are standing, not only are the stripes going away from each other, they aren't even in the same frame. Both isolated, focused on their own issues and walls, and pulling apart. *headshake* TALK, DAMMIT.
spn0816 016
spn0816 017

-Directed by Steve Boyum, notorious spotlight thief. Thank you for the nice shiny shot of the Impala's nose at the start there, but I'm still watching you, Boyum. She better still be in good shape with all her current parts by the end. *side-eyes*

-This guy looks so familiar, except in my mind he had more face fuzz. Where's he from? Is it a Vancouver Actor thing or was he on another episode?
spn0816 018

-Looks like it was only temporary zombification then.
spn0816 019

-Love that the Sheriff is all gung ho to go after some zombies. "If things go all Dawn of the Dead on us, you'll be our first call." Hee!
spn0816 020

-"Boys. Aim for the head." BWahahahahahahahah! XD
spn0816 021
spn0816 022

-So, while zombified, the guy got from Great Falls, Montana to Livingston, Montana, about 165 miles, and Google says about 55 hours of walking. Heck of a hike for a dead guy.

-"Liver was eaten, best guess, a bird got at it." Ohhhh! I feel like some mythology is trying to smack me in the face here, hang on.... Prometheus! As punishment for giving fire to humans, Prometheus was chained to a big rock on a mountain and an eagle would be sent by Zeus each day to peck out his liver, which would grow back to be eaten again, etcetera. I thought that bird looked eagle-ish, but the only ones we have around here are bald eagles so the coloring threw me. So here we have the Titans then, yes?

-"Damn straight I wanted to shoot some zombies!" Aww. *pats Dean*
spn0816 023

-...although this camera angle makes me pretty sure he's not done with the regenerating liver trick yet.
spn0816 024

spn0816 025

-"Woodchipper beats everything." While you are making a very valid point, Dean, you're missing the corpse running away.
spn0816 026

-Very rarely do you get a chance to interrogate potential zombies. Dean's not doing to bad a job of it.
spn0816 027

-"Just promise me you'll finish the job 'cause I can't take this anymore." Yeah, getting your liver pecked out every single day would suck pretty hard, but that's why it was assigned as a punishment. Zeus holds a grudge like a hot damn.

-Prometheus cleans up well. Just saying.
spn0816 028

-"You mean like a real life Kenny?" *cackles* Dean's so intense about it too.
spn0816 029

-Shane, not Prometheus. Probably had it changed when he hit the 20th century. *nods*

-"It was given to me because people had to call me something." Or that.
spn0816 030

-And a curse is a reasonable assumption given these guys' knowledge base doesn't often include the actual reality of portions of the Greek pantheon. Yet. (Although... *quickly checks the guest roster for "Hammer of the Gods"* Nope. A Roman one that probably had Greek precursors, but no Greek ones pop out.) Don't know if leaving 'Shane' alone in his own room is tactically wise, but I suppose it'll explain why, when the eagle comes for big P's liver, the boys don't find a way to stop it. (Though that could be funny as heck to watch, Sam and Dean chasing an eagle around a hotel room.) *handwave*

-Cavity searches. Dean. *headshake*

spn0816 031

-*jumps a foot in the air when he grabs her hand* Damn, he's speedy!

-"You don't remember? Never mind." *hauls out big shiny knife* bit of an over-reaction that. It's not like you're the only thing he forgot!
spn0816 032

-Combat! And Sam, lacking a wall behind him to be thrown into takes a delightfully picturesque tumble out the door and down the stairs, (which is nonetheless difficult to cap clearly)
spn0816 033
spn0816 034
spn0816 035
spn0816 036

-Prometheus, I mean Shane here is pretty darn good at hand-to-hand combat! Kind of wonder how he managed to get killed every night with reflexes like that one he was no longer chained to a rock, but if Zeus wants your liver to be catnip for Eagles, I guess there's not much you can do to stop it.
spn0816 037

-"Now? I'm your worst enemy." And she can dissipate into smoke, that's just great. The now implies she wasn't his worst enemy before, so... Hm. Heh. And while looking through the Wikipedia entry for Prometheus, there's a note that he gets freed by Hercules, a Greek hero notorious for having to complete a bunch of Trials. I think I know what Kevin's rock might say Sam has to do next. Though I still don't know who the vanishing woman might be.

-Falling down, short of breath, clutching left arm. He's a bit young for a heart attack, but maybe that burst of activity threw a clot. Or something is inside him eating his tasty tasty liver.
spn0816 038

-"Do we call 911?"/"And tell 'em what, that the dead guy we stole from the morgue is alive and having a coronary?" Dean sometimes makes excellent points.
spn0816 039

-(Several insane weeks pass... Well now. Let's see if any progress can be made here.)

-Must be weird for the boys to be sitting around a corpse of a relative stranger and not setting it on fire or something.
spn0816 040

-"What do we know that has Jason Bourne fighting skills, dies a lot, and has a history with violent women?"/"I dunno, you?" HA! No Dean, not Sam. Sam sucks at hand to hand and the women he's been with were generally more innocent or manipulative than violent, that or dead. Sam dying a lot I will grant you.
spn0816 041
spn0816 042

-Always be suspicious of random people arriving when you're sitting next to a fresh corpse waiting for it to wake up. Particularly if they are possibly the woman who the dead guy went ninja on before croaking *squinting, can't tell*, accompanied by a random rosy-cheeked kid. *eyeballs*
spn0816 043

-"I'm looking for a corpse that went missing today." Sure. Always bring along a wide-eyed child when searching for missing corpses. It worked well enough for Sam and Dean's formative years.
spn0816 044

-"I'm the mother of his son." Or the human personification of the eagle that's trying to get to him to peck out his liver so he can repop, accompanied by a convenient kid as a cover story. Or she's for real. What kind of crap is the kid of Prometheus going to have to deal with?

spn0816 045

-"I just knew there was something off about him, the way he would-"/"Die everyday?" *snerk* Subtle Dean, with the subtle eyebrows.
spn0816 046

-"And I know I couldn't have made it down the mountain if it weren't for him." *sudden vivid image of her surfing the guy's temporary corpse down through the snowy hills like a sled* No. Nonono. Bad brain, stop that. Hee.

-Ah, so Prometheus doesn't know he's got a kid. Not that running away when you find out the guy you just did the nasty with who kind of died on you is some kind of messed-up zombie isn't perfectly reasonable, but this is why you use condoms, silly! Not that having your liver pecked out by deity-sent eagles is an STD or anything, but still. Unprotected sex with some random amnesiac you found in an avalanche is not a good life choice.

-"What made you look again?"/"The worst thing." Oh, do not tell me that getting your liver pecked out by deity-sent eagles is hereditary. The kid never even got close to stealing knowledge of fire from the gods! He shouldn't need to worry about getting punished for crap his dad did at the dawn of time or whenever.

-Nothing like waking up from the dead to discover you have a seven-year-old (maybe?) son. At least let the poor undead bastard have a coffee first.
spn0816 047
spn0816 048

-(Another several insane weeks later, though I have to say, I'm quite impressed that I still haven't seen anything about this episode mentioned anywhere, so thank you for using cuts and whatnot, that's wonderful. Let's try progress again.)

-I like the framing of this shot. Also, the hotel looks familiar, but I'm drawing a blank on it.
spn0816 050

-"Best I can tell? Prometheus." *fist-pump* Thought so!

-"He Ocean's Eleven'd Mount Olympus and stole the flames of Olympia." *snerk* I don't know whether it's cute, touching or disturbing that Sam just verbed a movie title (which seems a more Deanish thing to do), but it makes me go Aww. As does his face. Aw.
spn0816 051

-Artemis? Cooooooool. Goddess of the hunt and other nifty things, twin sister of Apollo (the one that wasn't a Viper pilot). More known for bow and arrow than for blade weapons, at least in mythology. In SPN 'verse, who knows what Artemis' lore might or might not include. For a start, notorious blade usage, which handily puts a potential immortal-killing blade on the magic item radar in the Supernatural 'verse. Just in time for the second task of the "disconnect Hell forever" quest the boys are on, hmm?

-What, three depictions of Prometheus getting his liver pecked out, and none of him stealing the fire for humanity? This website does not provide an unbiased report on events, for shame.
spn0816 052

-"He fell." Aw crap. The kid's immortal too, isn't he? Only without the liver-pecking. I hope. o.O
spn0816 053

-"He's dying, isn't he?"/"I was going to tell you, I just wanted you to have a chance to adjust." Hi! Here's your seven year old son you never knew existed, by the way, he's sort of undead or immortal or something the same way you are. Yeah, that'll need more than a cup of coffee to cope with. Why would the kid even have the same thing his Dad does? Like I mentioned earlier, he didn't steal fire from Zeus. Unless it's a kind of bloodline curse thing, which, Zeus can be a real dick sometimes, so it's feasible, and Prometheus might not have had a kid before now... or has, and there's a bunch of half-titan frequently dying immortal undead people wandering the Earth... hmmm. *eyes Winchester bloodline*

-(...Aaaand another several very long weeks later, onward. Yeesh.)

-Yay! House-guests at the Bat-Cave! Sleepover at the super-secret impenetrable lair! BYOB!
spn0816 054

-"Age seven marks one of the first Greek rites of manhood." Sam, busting out the Wiki of Weird, or at least the Wiki of Plot-related Cultural Minutiae.
spn0816 055

-She's handling the whole "cursed by Zeus, hunting monsters" stuff rather well, although the impressive lair is probably helping sell it. Or not. There's only so much selling a lair can do, even if it's an awesome one.
spn0816 056

-"So the usual way we handle this is we summon the bastard and we work him over until he undoes whatever it is he did." ...Zeus? Um. That might be a little above your challenge rating, guys.
spn0816 057

-"And if he doesn't want to undo it?"/"Then we take him out." Sam's little eyebrow wiggle of 'oh yes we can' is somehow not terribly reassuring.
spn0816 058

-"Sam and I are gonna go after Zeus." Why is that so funny? Why?

-Research and rotgut. Might not be the most sensible combo, but what the hell, if you're going after the Father of the overwhelming majority of the Greek pantheon, alcohol is not going to stand much of a chance of increasing the already incredibly high levels of inadvisable stupidity involved in this project.
spn0816 059

-"Whatcha got?"/"Dragon penis." Bwahahah. I'm sure several of Dean's one night romantic conquests down through the years would be happy to vouch for that. Seriously though, given dragons in this show are generally humanoid, that's going to be a bit awkward to collect. But who knows, maybe the Bat-Cave has a store room full of spell components. It really should. Probably like Bilbo's larder for mystical hoohah in there.
spn0816 060

-Oh Drakopoulus. Not dragon penis. Ancient Greek hunter with a journal translated by the Men of Letters. Cool cool cool.

-Dean: "*spills about the secret society* We're Legacies! *smirky eyebrow waggle*" And then Sam with his face. For a guy raised under the 'We do what we do and we shut up about it' Winchester law, Dean's quite chatty about the secret society business.
spn0816 061
spn0816 062

-"Wood from a tree struck by lightning." I suppose they already used the sand-struck-by-lightning, aka Fulgurite from when they were binding Death back at the start of Season 7. No reason why a spell component couldn't be used for more than one spell though.

-Bone from a worshipper. Hopefully one that's already deceased or recently had something amputated...

-Incidentally, where's Artemis got to while all this is going on?

-Sam and Prometheus are going to go dig up a grave? Heh. This is gonna end up with Sam standing in a partly dug grave next to 'dead-on-cue' Prometheus, trying to explain things to a security guard, isn't it? Along with another Artemis attack. Also, I don't know about taking extreme newbie Hayley out on a break and enter. Where's her son going to be? Waiting in the SUV? Or will they wait until he's managed to die again and leave him on his own in the lair? Which seems kind of wrong on a few levels.

-There's something very heart-warming (if uncappable) about Dean tossing the Impala keys to Sam.

-"The book calls for fulgurite." Um. Wait a minute. *reviews Wiki entry* "natural hollow glass tubes formed in quartzose sand, silica, or soil by lightning strikes" so, earth and sand, not trees. Unless the tree is made of sand, and yeah SPN-verse has some different stuff than regular Earth, trees made of sand aren't likely. Unless the SPN-verse linguistic *handwave* meanings and stuff doesn't have the same restriction on meanings and trees count. Or it's a lightning strike on a petrified tree. Or something. *handwave*

-"You do know that fulgurite is available from crystal shops all over, right?" HA! Okay, the points for the retcon of the 'OMG finding fulgurite is so harrrrrrrd!' from Season 7 kind of balances out saying that a tree turns into crystal when hit by lightning. Go Hayley! XD
spn0816 063
spn0816 064

-"We need a bone, so I dig." Hee. Just like a puppy.
spn0816 065

-*pauses to admire the framing and stuff*
spn0816 066

-I'd just like to make a note here about the ironic appropriateness the method of summoning Zeus to lift Prometheus' curse involving a human setting something on fire. Because, you know, fire.
spn0816 067

-Though really, that bowl thing should probably be inside the painted wards, shouldn't it? And again, what about Artemis?

-Of course Zeus is going to arrive with lightning. ... hey. Didn't Raphael have wings of lightning...? It'd be kind of weird, but what if Zeus is an Archangel? I mean look what the Show did with making Gabriel be Loki after all... Hmm...
spn0816 068

-Tie Report - Greek Deity Edition: Solid grey. On a charcoal grey shirt. With a grey suit (with very subtle crosshatching). Not much of a job to be on anymore given the number of followers Zeus still has, but he is on what job he has, which is nice, but otherwise dark and opaque. Hope they don't end up killing him. Not sure how they would, that immortal-killing blade Artemis has, she still has... hm... I wonder how the Greek Pantheon is for upward mobility these days, and whether Artemis might be out trying to give herself a promotion.... Hope she shows up soon if that's the case, since Zeus just took a look at the painted wards and his face is now going "LOL, seriously?"
spn0816 069

-"Break the trap dear man, and I'll break the curse." Hahahahaha. How about no.

-Ah crap. Yeah, she's gonna break the circle. Does she not understand the concept of bluffing? Or that they can leave him there and come back tomorrow and try again? Arg. *facepalm*
spn0816 070

-Okay, that was kind of cool.
spn0816 071
spn0816 072

-OH HAI ARTEMIS. Was wondering when you'd show up, guess you're on guard duty.
spn0816 073

-"Balls!" Aw, Dean using Bobby's favourite cuss word. Aw.
spn0816 074

-Happy accidents. "Did he hurt?" Yeah, Zeus isn't the happy fluffy agreeable sort of deity. Discovering another avenue to get vengeance on the guy he's been getting vengeance on since the dawn of time or whenever is a bonus, not something to undo.
spn0816 075

-"It's our god, the goddess of Hunters." And Sam attempts to fast talk Artemis into being on their side? This should be interesting.
spn0816 076

-"She's who we pray to for courage when we're hunting the Gorgon, or the Minotaur." I'm just going to choke to death laughing for a while, while Dean's "...whut?" faces speak volumes.
spn0816 077
spn0816 078
spn0816 079

-Yeah, there was only one direction that conversation was going. Into a wall.
spn0816 080

-"Why did it take you seven years to track down Prometheus?" Pst, Sam. Seven years nine months. Ish.

-"He was hiding?" Really, Artemis? He's an amnesiac, and liver-pecking eagles didn't seem to have much difficulty homing in on his liver. Hm. This conversation might bear more fruit than a face full of wall for the Winchester boys after all.
spn0816 081

-"He's in love with you, he told us." Dean's face is getting the best lines in this segment, I think.
spn0816 082

-Ah, Sammy's working some deductive reasoning there, Artemis and Prometheus had a 'thing' and this explains the whole being forgotten business before.

-"Have you spilled it to anyone? Homer, Hesiod, Herodotous?" And once again, Dean's face gets the best lines.
spn0816 083

-"It's sleepytime my dear boy." Oh crap.
spn0816 084

-"This has to stop, Father." There's the frigging bow! That's more like it. Although from what little I know of archery, her stance is rather crap.
spn0816 085

-Well crap. That didn't go so well.
spn0816 086
spn0816 087
spn0816 088

-"Your boy is going on the mountain." *shudders* Eeeeeeeeek. O.o
spn0816 089

-Whoooaaaaah! And a few extra badass points for Prometheus.
spn0816 090
spn0816 091

-Ah. Now I see the resemblance. Seems Prometheus had a thing for long-haired brunettes.
spn0816 092
spn0816 093

-Oh hahahahaha, clever set design. Sign in the background behind Dean, warning of an electrical danger, in the room they summoned Zeus to. Ha ha ha.
spn0816 094

-You know, given his penchant for surviving death, I've give him a good 48 hours before you light his corpse up. And not just because having Prometheus owe you a colossal favour would be handy. He was kind of cool. Although, again, cremating Prometheus's corpse is quite ironic too.
spn0816 095

-Aw, Sam and the kid. Aw.
spn0816 096

-HI CAR! HI!!! I know I already said Hi this episode, but that was months ago! Damn, look at that suspension bounce! (Uncappably, dammit.)

-And it's time for night time 90 mph car chatting with the Winchester boys!

-Sam, honey, if you've been thinking you'll be fine at the end of the Trials, or that there won't be some major sacrifice of yourself or someone close to you at the end, you are definitely being naive. The random bleeding you've been doing should be a huge tip-off for one, not to mention the general pattern of your entire family's lives to date. Also, TELL YOUR BROTHER YOU'RE RANDOMLY BLEEDING.
spn0816 097

-"If you die, it'll be because of something normal." Oh Dean. *headshake*
spn0816 098

-"Heart attack?"/"Exactly. Yeah, eat your burger." *sneeeeerrrk*

-Can I just mention again some more how cool it is that the boys have a non-mobile base of operations? And their own rooms full of their own crap? Because it is.
spn0816 099

-"Cas, you got your ears on?" Oh. Castiel was in a very bad way last we saw him. Also, I'm not sure if the Bat-Cave might not be a bit like a Faraday cage for direct celestial communications and teleports. Depends how deep the men of letters got into the whole mess up in Heaven over the centuries, I suppose. Still, we're due for further developments in the Castiel area, so.
spn0816 100

-*Dean is Dean all over everything flailflailflail* "Keep an eye out for my little brother, okay?" and then the Family theme comes in on the soundtrack and just GAAAAAAAAH. *flail*
spn0816 101

spn0816 102

Well that took far longer than expected. Hopefully catching up the rest won't take as long as this did, or I'll still be catching up on Season 8 in July 2014. :-P

(PLEASE, NO REFERENCES TO EPISODES PAST 8.16 IN COMMENTS! I'll be catching up as fast as I can, but that's not likely to be very fast. :-/)

Yay, nice to see you!

It's been a while!

I did love Prometheus and Zeus (I am of the opinion Zeus may not be dead, but whatever). The Batcave is...*flails like a muppet* Ok, I'm fine. The Herodotous line did me in, yes indeed;)

And yes please, WHAT ABOUT CAS!!!!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 7th, 2013 05:45 am (UTC) (Link)
Definitely need an update on Castiel. I suspect it'll be happening in one or several of the episodes I've yet to get to though. ;-)
ciaranbochna From: ciaranbochna Date: May 7th, 2013 05:56 am (UTC) (Link)
*Taps chin thoughtfully* Could be;)

I'd be kinda shocked if there wasn't. XD

Sam dying a lot I will grant you.

I figure if you count Mystery Spot, Sam will never catch up with Dean on the dying scale, so I saw the parallel as being Dean.

I'm picky and I will always be bothered by the fact that Sam and Dean bring a supernatural being Prometheus, a woman they have never seen before and her supernatural son into the bat cave, but they don't think to go get Kevin and his mother. I mean Garth is a nice guy, but I would not want him to be the only thing between me and Crowley. Maybe there is a "no prophets allowed" sign somewhere we haven't seen yet, but still Kevin, tablet, Gates of Hell, Crowley couldn't they at least invite him?

Well, I figure Mystery Spot deaths and Sam's death by wish coin don't really count since I doubt Death or the Reaper contingent got so much as a sniff of them.

I am hoping they'll bring Kevin in, and I agree, inviting random People of the Week to the lair first is not particularly smart on any level.

Welcome back from your annual tax hell trip. I always suspected that time management was a hoax created to sell more daytimers. Looking forward to your take on the next episodes. While a fan of Greek mythology this episode didn't do much for me. Maybe if they didn't kill off Prometheus... Or maybe if they didn't kill off cute little Weinerhut angels who didn't do anything to deserve that kind of treatment who knows

I have a half-formed thought with the spate of "introduce a cool character-kill a cool character" incidents with Prometheus, and Samandiriel and Henry Winchester too that there might be... I dunno. Some kind of something in the works where they all come back somehow, or all get hooked up to the Heavenly Roadhouse by Ash to deal with whatever crap's happening up there, or something. Half-formed only.

You're baaaack!

I remember not liking this episode very much at all. Especially the, "Oh, he must be Prometheus," reasoning, like that was the most obvious answer to Shane's identity!

(I did like the Kenny joke, though!)

Glad to be back!

I like to keep things on the squee side around here, but I will say it wasn't an episode I would have chosen to spend two months watching.

Dean's face is indeed epic.

Yay, you're back! And thanks for pointing out Dean's face to us, I didn't pay attention to that hilariousness while watching. I think I was distracted by wondering: How did Sam know about Prometheus escaping before? Deducting that they had a thing, I can see, but the details?

For the record, I think the tree struck by lightning was what they needed for the stakes, while the fulgurite and the bone where ingredients for the summoning spell.

It's always amazed me how much he can communicate without saying a word.

I accept your hand-waving rational explanation. *nods sagely*
