Ha! It actually worked this time.

Man, guys. Just... *tingles* I'm loving this season.

I was smart this time. I wrote this in Word first, then posted. Take that, technology.

I'm writing this quickly and with a lot of emotion shaking through me. Quickly, because I have to get up at 3am to leave for the airport and fly away to Chicago for Creation Con. The emotion part I'll get to shortly.

For those of you who don't see previews, I won't ruin anything for you except to say OMFG I can't wait for next week. Kelly, you know exactly what I mean. *grin*

The build up in this epi was fabulous. The back story helped us — or maybe I should be saying me — form a more complete picture, helped us feel some balance of emotion, helped us see where Kripke's Plan may have been going all along. When this whole series is ultimately over, what a story it will have told.

I ended this episode with three over-arching thoughts:

1) The convenience of fictional storytelling is unparalleled and thank God for that.

2) There comes a time in every sibling's life when they have to force themselves to see their fellow sibs as a person in and of their own right and not as a playmate, childhood friend, partner in crime, or responsibility.

3) Desperation finds a comfortable home inside of grief, and has the uncanny ability to cause riots in the minds of the sane.

The Ramble

I should warn you, my head was all over the place watching this, so I can't guarantee any sort of logical, scene-following flow. Not sure if I ever had that in the first place…

I liked Anna immediately. I thought her striking in looks, with her wide, innocent eyes, her slight tremble of awed fear and disbelief, and her sarcastic, very Dean-like "smoke 'em if you got 'em" approach to the coming apocalypse.

I liked that we got some more information about why this war has been so hard-fought. Something like 600 possible seals, and Lilith only has to open 66 (and which 66 she plans on opening, none of the good guys know) to bring out Lucifer. Okay, we need some lawyers in Heaven because that is a pretty darn big loophole in the whole good vs. evil thing.

I liked the opening scene with the boys — Sam "drunk" and hustling pool, Dean setting up the play. I always pictured it opposite, and probably it usually is. But this is just one more example of the change we're seeing in Sam. Not only that, but the change in Dean. He's recognizing that his baby bro can hold his own, so it's giving it over to him. Their quick blink-and-you'll-miss-it exchange of looks when Sam kicks the anty up to $500 was a joy to watch. They are partners. And I love it.

Dean's "we've got leads…BIG leads" sarcasm when they leave behind cold, hard cash to meet up with Ruby is predictable. As was his doubt that Ruby was actually helping them or that Anna was real.

The hard edge to Sam's voice in the car on the three-day drive to Anna's hospital when he said "let's trade stories, how was hell? Don't spare the details" made me wince, but y'know, I couldn't blame the guy. No one knows how to push your buttons — and exactly what order to push them — like family. Sam is hurt at being left out in the cold of Dean's pain, and he's trying to be mature about it, but it makes him mad, and having a history that Dean doesn't know about with Ruby — and having Dean constantly sniping at and about her — has to be wearing him down.

And the flashbacks begin. I have to say that I loved the flashbacks. I loved seeing Sam rough and worn and weary. I loved seeing him as I felt he should have been — as he wasn't four months later when he finally saw Dean alive again. As we all expected him to be. Because, really? None of us moved on. We spent an entire summer with Dean's bloody face and his desperate cry of "SAM!" ringing in our ears and seeing Sam looking whole and healed just felt all levels of wrong.

But the flashbacks showed us how raw Sam had been. How unsteady and desperate. How lost he was with out Dean. Guh, I broke inside a bit for him. He had tried so hard for a year to save his brother and nothing worked. Dean still died — and not just died. Was ripped. To. Shreds. Right in front of Sam. Leaving Sam to bury him (a state away from where he died for some odd reason). Leaving Sam to go on alone in the middle of an all-out war where the demons claw at him day and night. The real ones, and the ones inside.

So, seeing him stagger towards the CRD2 (which, am I nuts in thinking that there was only 1 CRD?), not wanting a deal of 10 years, not even wanting one year, just wanting to trade places with Dean… broke my heart. I'm a big enough sap that I'm actually tearing up writing this.

But then we get that odd line from CRD2 about having Dean right where they want him… okay, so all along I had been speculating that Dean was simply Dean. Blue-collar, classic-car lovin' hunter who would have been a fireman or a mechanic had he never known about demons.

I thought he was there as a firewall to stand between Sam and the darkness. A reminder of what it's like to be real. But… perhaps he was significant in this universal struggle all along… perhaps the reason he was saved, the reason ANGELS take orders from him… is that Sam's not the only 'chosen one.'

I'll leave my speculations there because I rather enjoy watching Kripke unspool his ball of yarn and being thrilled by the unfolding story.

The quietness in the car, though, after Sam's mini-recollection, was heavy. Heavy enough that I felt it through my TV. And for some reason, the space in the interior of the Impala actually looked like it shrank. I don't know why I noticed that. Maybe it's just me.

Okay, when they went to Anna's house, find her parents dead and sulfur about, and Dean pulls his Columbo "girl, interrupted" lines out, all I could think was: they're not worried about fingerprints? Is it because they're officially dead after Jus In Bello? I'm just curious, not critical.

I loved the initial encounter with Anna. This girl really got to me for some reason. I think maybe because in Lazarus Rising Castiel said that only certain special people could hear them. And so far, the only "special people" we've seen exhibit powers like seeing demon's real faces or moving objects with their mind have either been damned or infused by demon blood.

Now, of course we don’t know that she isn't one of those two, but I'm doubting that's the case. I think maybe she's simply special, and like anything else humanity doesn't understand, she's feared and locked away.

Not only that, the demons want her because, as Dean pointed out, she's 1-900-ANGEL, and the Angels recognize the threat she is if captured alive by the demons, so they feel she must die. Anna's in a real tough spot. But, I can't help but believe that there's a purpose for everything. I mean, what happened to God works in mysterious ways? If Anna can hear the angels, then there must be a reason for it. Right?

I loved that she stepped out with a "THE Dean?" question. Dean's face looked really warm in that scene. Very infused with color and emotion and wonder. I couldn't help but think of his experience when Castiel spoke — made his ears bleed. I felt that he might have been thinking about that as well, and watching Anna in awe that she was still in one piece. That she knew everything he'd learned in the last two months.

And it all started for her the day he got out of hell. I chuckled at Sam's "that's above my pay grade" comment. I like that about as much as "yeah, I got nothin'." Hee.

Dean's fascination with the bloody eyes of the statue had me tilting my head at him in thought. I just want him to have some peace. Which, of course, was not to be in this moment as the demon burst through the door, and Sam was unable to use the Force, getting tossed aside like so much garbage as Ruby hid Anna and Dean ended up getting the ever-lovin' crap kicked out of him.

Not only that… but he knew the demon. Allistair. Whoever that is. Only Allistair I know was on You Can't Do That On Television. *shrug* But… Allistair eluded to the fact that Dean and he being "really close" when Dean was in hell. So either that's a hint at what Dean saw/did, or it's a demon's way of using sarcasm while he makes you bleed.

Sam saved his brother, though, and while Allistair was dealing with the Knife That Can Kill Any Demon Except When It Can't, they jump through a stained glass window. Ouch. And… ouch. Leading up to this fanfic writer's toe-curling scene of glee. Sam stitching up his own very yummy bicep while Dean spits out blood and waits to get his poor shoulder relocated. "On three… one…" CRACK!

Dude, I seriously felt the bile rise in his throat as Dean turned away and tried the breathe-through-your-nose-not-through-your-mouth method for not puking from the pain. Made my teeth tingle.

I know I wasn't the only one. Terry's gonna wear out that part in her DVDs.

Okay, so, we get Dean sitting painfully in a chair, facing his brother and finally getting the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Turns out… he can't exactly handle the truth.

And this is where the creativity of fiction enters in. We all know that Kripke watches the boards and absorbs fan reaction. Personally? While slightly contrived, I think he handled the Ruby/Sam situation rather well.

It's really the only thing he could do. He'd already set it up that Sam and Ruby were "comfortable" around each other from the first episode, more than just the random show-up-and-fight-demons kind of relationship. I don't think the writing team really thought about the ramifications of what it would mean to the fans for Sam to have a relationship of any kind other than killing with a demon.

Or, maybe they did and this was planned all along, who knows. But either way, it was handled so that I was comfortable with the play-out, bought the somewhat scrambled reasoning, and decided that I could, like Dean, feel slightly dirty and ask to skip the nudity.

I liked Ruby showing up in a different body when she initially saved Sam. That wasn't something I expected. AND allowed for Sam to really be Sam a bit later by demanding that Ruby let the secretary go. The fact that she then possessed a Jane Doe coma patient that was going to be unplugged was the contrived part for me, but, hey, like I said, I was able to go with it.

The expression on Dean's face when he says "too much information" is how I felt when I found drugs on my baby sister. The okay, I don't want to know this, I want to erase it from my mind, but I can't go back, and I have to remember that they're an individual not ruled by my personal code of right and wrong and I have to decide how I'm going to love them—completely without complete understanding, or with parameters and limitations—because I can't have it both ways and I don't want to lose them, so I am going to have to suck it up and let them work through this feeling.

I think Dean was right, though. That Ruby screwed with Sam, played mind games, and did everything to get him to go "bad." And I think that there's something in this for her at the end of the road — something is going to happen with or for Ruby when Lilith dies. Otherwise her desperation to train Sam to get rid of Lilith wouldn't be so raw.

Her seduction was blatant, but at the same time, Sam was destroyed. Broken from the inside out. She knew it, took advantage of his grief, but he wasn't without control. He let it happen. He wanted escape. He justified it just as the writers did — it's not rape because there's no one else in that body but Ruby.

Yes, it is sleeping with a demon, but maybe he wanted to be dirty. Maybe he wanted to be bad. Just so that he could feel something else besides the overwhelming pain that had swamped him since the Hellhounds tore his brother apart before his eyes. He was all alone in the world and she was offering him warmth and companionship and a little danger and… yeah, I can get that.

And, man, did that actress look TINY compared to JP. One wrong move and he'd snap her in half!

Like Dean, I felt a little dirty. But in way, and please don’t hate me for this, I liked the feeling. I liked seeing Sam as someone who is vulnerable to life and makes mistakes and willingly goes where he knows he shouldn't just because he is tired of doing the right thing all the time — because the right thing left him alone in the world. That makes him fantastically flawed to me. And now he has somewhere to go, some way to grow, and change will be more significant. I dig it.

Ruby was so right about Sam wanting to die fighting Lilith. You could see it in the redness framing his eyes and the tension in his mouth. No matter what she was teaching him, he didn't want to survive this fight without Dean. Hearts breaking wide open all over the world tonight. Good Lord, kid.

So… Ruby saves Sam from the trap Lilith set for him, and in turn Sam saves her by successfully using the Force for the first time. Dean's slow absorption of this information made me want to squeeze his (non-wounded) shoulder and whisper "it's gonna be okay."

Ruby possessing the housekeeping lady to get the boys' attention had me chuckling. As did the awkward apology from Dean. I think I melted a little more when he said "I owe you for Sam." Holy smokes, boy. Kill me dead. Ruby realizing that the boys lost the knife with Dean's "don't look at me" and Sam's "thanks a lot!" gave me back a little balance.

Sam came clean. Like, all the way, no curtain calls clean. And Dean took the hit and listened and accepted. And because of that, they are one more step toward having a new balance all their own. Dean's secret pain, though, has to be aired. Sam has to know — not only to bring them back together, but because there are obviously enemies that Dean knew/knows that are coming back and they have to be ready for. Like Allistair.

Okay, so, like I said, quickly written and a bit scattered, but the emotion is well-intentioned and very real. And I cannot WAIT until next week. Plus?? Does ANYONE know when it's coming back? Do we just skip Thanksgiving Day? I told you, I plan my life around this show…

I'm off to peek at baby girl and attempt to sleep. I'll post Con experiences on LJ as often as possible. And, if anyone is interested, I am working on the first chapter of Weapon and the Wound. I have 15 pages done, but life got in the way a bit. I'll return to it after this weekend.

Slainte.

the space in the interior of the Impala actually looked like it shrank.

This is because just when you think Jared/Sam can't get any muscle-ier, HE DOES. Soon his massive shoulders will have to ride in the back seat.

Leading up to this fanfic writer's toe-curling scene of glee. Sam stitching up his own very yummy bicep while Dean spits out blood and waits to get his poor shoulder relocated. "On three… one…" CRACK!

I know, right? All I could think was, "Seen that in sooo many fanfics." But it was cool to actually see it onscreen, I thought.

Hearts breaking wide open all over the world tonight.

Holy crap, you're such a Top Gun fan. I knew I liked you. ;)

'Ello!!

I may not be able to reply to all the Con comments, but I can certainly reply to the review comments, yeah?

This: "Soon his massive shoulders will have to ride in the back seat."

Dude. Seriously. Having now seen them for real, I can certainly agree with that. *laugh*

Thanks for commenting. And yes, I am definitely a Top Gun fan. Back when RayBans were cool and Tom Cruise was hot. I have lost that lovin' feeling for him a bit in the time since, but that movie will forever be awesome.

Holy hell, I totally agree. Still one of my favorite movies of all time, and he was sooo sexy. Tom Cruise is probably the only actor other than Jensen that I can honestly say I've fangirled. I liked him in A Few Good Men also, but since then...meh. Not so much. Seems like lately he's less of an actor and more of a "personality". And a weird one, at that.

I'm absolutely speechless after that episode! It's 5.50 am here and I've been downloading and watching since 3.15 am and I have to get up for work in nearly 2 hours - must get to sleep! Just shows how addictive this programme is.

I haven't read all your review yet but loved the bit I did read - you always manage to capture in words what I'm thinking.

Have a really. really good weekend - please take some pictures and share when you get back.

hugs

Thanks, Jenny! I know the rambles are long--I appreciate you reading what you did. :) Sometimes I can't seem to help myself.

I did take pics of this weekend, but I was a bit far back in the room and the lighting wasn't all that great. I'll post them after I mess with them a bit in photoshop, but I can't promise greatness. You may want to seek elsewhere for good pics. I'm sorry!!

"See" you in a couple of days!!

OHMYGOD! I .. I thinks I has it!

What if .. what IF this IS all part of Lilith's plan. She sent Ruby sent back to coerce Sam, to manipulate him, to train him. Dean in Hell, as the crossroads demon said, that put him 'where they wanted him', coz Lilith knew that without Dean, Sam would be more vulnerable to manipulation.

Now, it could be that Ruby is working her own end-round thing. Maybe she's in league with Alistair or whatever, but yea, I could see this all coming together. Maybe... Hmm... *ponders*

Tonight's ep: My only problem was pacing. It's so stinkin hard to do an ep with flashbacks and not have it effect the pacing in a negative way. It kinda did tonight. Oh, but overall, I adored all of it. I still squeed and grinned and cood and awww'd.

Excited as I was to get some answers as to what Sam went thru when Dean died, the only bit that left me crying for him was when he showed up at the CRD begging to make a deal. WOW.. Jared rocked my sox just then. But the rest? The rest of his flashes were ... flat. Maybe it was due to Genvieve Cortes but just .. not as moving. But that's not all bad. It can't all be tears and saddness. There was a story to be told, but I just had hoped the emotion would carry.

OH but the sex scene was STEEEEEEMY! I had to cover my ll year old's eyes, and believe me, he went willingly..LOL. that just grossed him right out.

Guh.. when Sam put Dean's shoulder back in socket? WWWWWWWWOW! My heart danced happily in my throat during that lil bit! LOL.. I might wear out my dvr reviewing that one over and over.

Next weeks ep looks even better. We get some Dean emoing about his time in Hell, it appears. And not sure if you read an interview from Jared about that scene, but Jared said Jensen did that scene so well that even HE started crying.

Oh .. I canNOT wait.

SWEEEET! You're working on Weapon & Wound?!?!?!?! *dances happily* Dude, that would be so cool if we got a chapter or two during the hiatus. Would ease the pain and the waiting.

I think we get eps to the end of November then not again until January 15th, if memory serves. I'm sure the Jan 15th bit is right, but not so sure that we get eps to the end of November. The CW is so friggin cheap.

So! Another ep next week and YAY! WEAPON AND WOUND!
Gives you happy smilez....
heh heh heh heh

I've heard about that interview -- where was it?
That tear going down his face. Which is better -- Dean in such emotional pain or getting the crap beaten out of him -- it's a toss up (and I'm sure we need therapy for loving every minute!!).

I bookmark everytime Dean gets smacked -- some actors can really express pain - and his deep groans get you -- all tingly...

I like your thought of Ruby. She does get out of Hell alot doesn't she!! I hope she turns out to be bad -- a "good" demon is just wrong.

This would have been a super 2 hour ep -- I agree with pacing is off when you have to cut it up -- but it was still good.

Nov. 18th, 2008 08:32 pm (UTC)
DUDE! Your theory has some serious merit!! I've been thinking about that all week. Because I'm with you 100% -- I don't think Ruby is in it for the good of mankind at all. She's in this for the good of Ruby. Somehow, this whole situation is going to benefit her -- not sure how, and I'm not saying that she couldn't possibly have feelings for Sam... but I doubt she *loves* him. She's using him for something... just not sure how/what yet.

And your idea is definitely plausible.

I can't wait for this Thursday. My hearts in my throat thinking of the possibilities...

Jesus. What an episode. Thank God I am not the only one being emotionally unbalanced by it.
I started watching on youtube but as it got to the first flashback in the car I re-thought my approach immediately. This is an episode that needs high quality, high resolution and top sound. So, I chose to wait another hour for it to dl. SO. FRIGGIN.WORTH.THE.WAIT.

Those flashbacks opened a whole new aspect about Sam's character to me. I mean I knew/suspected he would be devasted and might even drink, try to commit suicide or trade his life for Dean's (as he apparently did try). However, these mintues spent in the past together with him... I MUST say that I totally love him. I know that I am a sick puppy. I know and I say it every week here. But the way he suffered, gah, poor boy. And I totally digged the sex scene. Very hot. Always fancied Dean more but that scene... no I won't be too clear about my thoughts while watching it. Just so you know, I really forgot about Dean (don't hit me!) for one single second. Jared isn't my favourite type of man (too much gym, like 'em tall but not THAT muscular) but that scene was perfect in setting, lighting and choreography. GREAT and SEXY. (*stops to wipe keyboard dry*)

Dean. Dean hearing all those details about how Sam's life was like hell. Awh, and all the while he knew that for one, HELL was pretty much worse than that. And secondly, because he dreads the moment he has to come clean now that Sam made the first step. Gotta watch this epi again. ASAP. Got some nice hurt!Dean and limp!Sam in it, too. I felt like reading a fanfic. Maybe Kripke or the others actually made a poll or head-count about which injuries fans usually prefer to inflict upon "our" boys. The most often, simple and meanest thing to hurt Dean with is a shoulder wound or a dislocated shoulder. I sent birdie a quick IM about that. She is gonna love it.

That girl Anna reminds me of a very dear friend of mine. Same eyes only blue and she is as slim and small. Cute girl. Totally liked her. I won't comment on the trailer for next week but about the nicest girl Dean could get... Not a bar wrench for once in his life. (Well, Jaimie wasn't that bad and Cassie wasn't a BAR wrench...)

One problem though. IT IS A BAD BAD BAD BAD CLIFFIE! I don't know how I am gonna make it till next week. Crap. Hate it (and love it!).

Gonna watch it again now. Thanks for sharing your emotions and ideas, GS. I would like to know about the start and durartion of the Xmas hiatus too! Actually fear that a little...

And I wish you the most wonderful weekend in Chicago. Say hello to the boys for me. And remember not to faint like a fangirl! Heehee.

HUGS, Ilka

Oh I love you and your mind ;) I dont know what I love more, reading these before i watch and eating up everything I can or reading after I have seen the ep and nodding and smiling along to everything you have said.

I thank you for your thoughts on Ruby. I mean I'm glad they cleared up the whole "meat suit/poor innocent girl" thing and im happy to go along with anything in this show but Ruby being one of the good guys without her own agenda that isnt good just rubs me the wrong way

But yeah ditto to EVERYTHING ... I love this!! I cant wait for next week. When is the break coming up?

Hope you have fun :) I know you will *hugs*

TV guide page won't open again. I was to exhausted when i saw the show to really enjoy it but I will watch it again today. (I did come to for the repair the damage scene tho, and yes I loved the shoulder and blood) And I don't give a damn if it was Ruby he was with, Sam is a frigging ANIMAL and I'm gonna watch THAT scene a lot just to watch his muscles writhe around. Holy crap I want to be handled like that.

Watching it again thru your words was almost as good as watching it for real. Hope you have a great tiime at the con.

I can't believe that some people did not like the ep. But then those same people seem to have a thing against Sera Gamble.
You brought up great points. Contrived but able to be digested -- I agree. Sam was broken - completely. And I also agree (ok, I agree with everything you say!!) - that a flawed Sam was amazing to behold. You just felt for him. That scene was a release of pain - nothing more.

Sam's smile after Dean thanked Ruby was cute. You could feel his relief at having told Dean everything. The load was lessened.

Anna is a great character and I like that she and Dean will get together (now THAT scene will be fantastic -- more tender). And Dean is guilty of something? How could he NOT have been broken in Hell? I hope we get Sam giving Dean the comfort (the absolution) he needs -- to not feel guilty over whatever he did in Hell. It's HELL -- no one can be strong down there.

I hope Castiel survives -- did you see that scene?

It was a great ep -- I want Ruby to be a demon after all - not a good demon. I want her to get smacked down -- is that bad of me? It's hard to swallow she's all good and wonderful. And one thing that slightly irked me - Sam dropping everything to go to Ruby - in the bar. I wanted to say -- you're not her lap dog -- she can wait - earn some money first!

Next week will never get here. and I'm with you -- I love my Dean whumping -- so I will have to watch all those good parts again. Poor Dean -- his face gets it every time. Reminiscent of BUABS -- when Sam had Dean in that exact position!! More please!!

Great review.
I envy you at the con -- lots of details please.
Thanks

I Know What You Did.....
Hey Gaelic,

Thanks for saying everything I was thinking, but in a much more eloquant way!! I loved this episode and couldn't wait to read your thoughts!! But, how are we going to survive until next week. I hadn't seen any previews, but after your comment went on over to the CW site - oh my God!! Now, I really don't know how I am going to make it until then.

I don't know if it is because he is so jacked, but I always find the naked Sam sex scenes kind of like cheap porn (well, how I imagine it would be - can't say I ever saw one!!).... slightly disturbing. And, eewwww Sam having sex with a dead body possessed by a demon - disgusting. And.... why haven't we seen Dean naked since Season One???

Hhhhmm, dislocated shoulder - loved it. But, as a Sports Physio, I am telling you there is no way you can put a shoulder back in like that!! Not even if you are Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon!! Is there sonething wrong with me that I enjoyed seeing the pain anyway? Terry isn't the only one who'll be wearing out that particular scene!! But, why is it always the left shoulder? Although, I guess the old wounds all disappeard after his return from Hell, so technically he is starting from fresh.

Can't wait to watch it all again tonight when it airs on the other channel, and I'll have the VCR cued up!!

Have a fantastic time at the con this weekend. I will be living vicariously through your reports!! Take good pictures for us.

Gaelic,

I am living vicariously through you this weekend. I know jealously is certainly not a virtue but I think God will forgive me this time!

Tell your hubby that my father in law was also at the Battle of the Bulge, but not on the front lines - he provided maps for the air corps and artillary in trucks behind the fighting.

Have fun and stay safe,

Sam stiching himself up was so realistic I was wincing with each stich. Dean biting back the agony of a dislocated shoulder, agree it needs to be rewound several times to appreciate. *g My bad. Though I hate that they don't follow with continuity as later you could see that Sam had no stiches under his sleeve, nor bandage and that always pisses me off. It's those little bits that just make it more realistic for me.

Confessions in abundance, loved it, even the Sammy Demon getting it on - hey I'm a Dean lover, but I can so appreciate a good set of muscles as that boy sports.

Loved the recyling comment and shows that at least Ruby has given Sam's concerns some thought. Not sure what her agenda is. Though in my clouded cocoon I wondered if she would get her old body/life back if she did manage to get Lelith taken out. Soppy I know and much preferred than it being something that hurts the boys or gives her a greater power.

At last I'v caught up!

Thanks for the review, as always, brilliant.

Jane :)
