Stream of Consciousness, Epi 10.6

Col. Mustard: "This is war, Peacock. Casualties are inevitable. You can not make an omelet without breaking eggs, every cook will tell you that."

Mrs. Peacock: "But look what happened to the cook!"


So, next to The Princess Bride, Clue is probably my favorite movie to quote. And I could do so endlessly. Ask my (poor, suffering) husband. In fact, it became a bit of a family tradition at holidays -- not to watch the movie, but to quote it. Psych had an amusing Clue-esque episode during it's final season, which had me chuckling appreciatively. So, when my friend Terry told me that they were doing an SPN Clue episode, I immediately looked forward to it. This wasn't quite as much of an odd-ball homage as the Psych episode, but it was nicely done.

On the heels of a meta-episode, I think it's a nice rhythm to ease us back into anything too serious. We don't want too many outright slap-stick/funny episodes in a row, but neither do we want funny-drama-funny-drama, or drama-drama-drama-drama. None of us are tall enough to ride that ride. This episode was a decent balance of MotW, humor, and just enough serious there at the end to remind us that all is not rainbows and unicorns in the world of Winchester (Westchester or otherwise).

They're still dealing with some decent-sized issues and searching for ways to work around and through a bad habit of keeping secrets from each other -- out of protection of the other or out of self-preservation. The trust in each other is there, but so is a wariness, a watchfulness, and a caution that speaks of loss. Still, there are plenty of moments each bother has taken the opportunity to share with a stranger how they feel about their brother: Dean in Fan Fiction telling Marie that he doesn't need the amulet to remind him how he feels about his brother; Sam here in Ask Jeeves telling Dash that his family likes each other, even if it is only himself and his brother.

There's a palpable feeling of hope, but it's still fragile. Like a ball of spun glass. With tacks trapped inside. And call me crazy, but...I like that. It's real. These guys wouldn't resonate so strongly with us if they just got over things. "Oh, you were soulless and almost let me die a couple of times, but you're back to your old self now? No big deal, man, have a bruski!" "Dude, you were a demon and ran amok for four months before trying to kill me? Fughettaboutit!"

They are uncomfortable when talking about specifics, but they're still making the effort. And they're both heading toward each other, that's the big thing. It isn't one brother trying in every way to make up to the other while the other is stoic or shut off or angry. They're facing each other and reaching out, and it's such a relief to see.

Okay, yadda yadda yadda, Gaelic, how about some lists! Then, more thoughts. 'Cause I have them.

LIKES:

  • Bob Seger's Travlin' Man playing at the end. Because, OMG, Bob. Seger. He's got a voice that melts me.

  • The Monster Book of Monsters recap. That was funny. Vampirates. Ha! I still get a kick out of that.

  • "Real men don't drink out of cups this small."

  • Dean putting on his I drink black coffee, dammit face, then waving Sam off when he tried to take back his cinnamon-roll-flavored bevvie.

  • The fact that Dean found one of Bobby's phones.

  • Seeing the Impala pull up, all nice and shiny, next to a Jag.

  • Sam's term, "Fed threads."

  • "You two are aDORable."

  • The hilarious, snooty, obliviousness of the LeCoix (TOTALLY guessing on the spelling here) family.

  • Dean's teasing, big-brother grin when Beverly overtly comes on to Sam.

  • "Loaded, yes. Rich, no."

  • The fact that both brothers lit up at the idea that the jewels in the Celtic cross might be real.

  • Dean playing with the suit of armor in the hallway.

  • The way they covered all the Clue-ish weapons: Dean, in the attic, with the lead pipe. Uh, and the rope. Dean, in the hallway, with the wrench. Sam, in the kitchen, with the knife. Dean, in the billiard room, with the candlestick. Sam (and Dean), in the kitchen, with the revolver.

  • The fact that the prop team put an actual game of Clue in all the stuff crammed in the attic (behind the creepy-looking baby doll).

  • "Husband-wife tag-team killer ghosts?" "Gotta keep the marriage alive somehow."

  • Clown college Collette.

  • Seeing the pile of skin to signify the shapeshifter (good to link back to their own canon, which had been forgotten in other shifter epis which shall not be named).

  • Sam telling Olivia that there is something "way worse" than ghosts going on, as though that would calm her down, and the irony of his saying that to her.

  • Sam distracting the LeCoix sisters by letting them pet him. Heavily.

  • Sam's little, squirmy, "He's calling to me," escape followed by his helpless shudder as he gets away from the sisters and joins Dean.

  • "Bravo, Rizzoli, you solved the case. Want to weigh in, Isles?"

  • The way Dean muttered, "it's locked from the outside," when they're trying to escape from the office/study. It sounded so natural, no sarcasm or pop-culture reference to mask any frustration or irritation.

  • "Homosexual murderers! Like Leopold and Loeb!" "Only hotter!"

  • "Did anyone else wet themselves?" (Have to admit, the way that actress delivered that line after the flurry of activity had me cracking up.)

  • The shot of Sam, sweaty and tense, just as Olivia is about to shoot him, followed by the mix of relief and anxiety on his face as Dean killed the shifter, flinching with each of Dean's extra shots.

  • The end shot of the Impala on the highway -- cool FX there.

NOT SO MUCH:

  • Just your basic storytelling method of having the bad guy tell their whole nefarious plot and/or childhood trauma just before they try (unsuccessfully) to kill the good guy. I mean, there has to be a better way to get the backstory of why they're a bad guy out there. And it's not like it's just our Show that does this...it's a common problem among most episodic TV shows, says me.

  • I could say the predictability of the storyline (I mean, seriously, raise your hand if you called Dash and Amber having the affair the moment they shared that glance, and realized Oliva was the shifter as soon as Dean stated the knives were stainless steel), but that would just be nit-picking. It was a basic, non-scary, get them back on their feet again, MotW story, and for that, it did just fine.

BURNING QUESTIONS:

  • So, remember how not killing made Dean sick at the end of S9? So much so he was throwing up blood? How long do you think it's going to be until that happens again, if he keeps himself reined in? And on that note, I'm not so sure I really buy his explanation that his, um, exuberance with shooting the shifter an extra four times was due to anxiety for his first kill since he's been back. I think he wanted to believe that. I think that's what he told himself to settle the racing of his heart and bring himself back from the edge. But the stoic, stone-faced expression he wore when he kept firing, that seemed like a man who knew exactly what he was doing. I think he needed that "hit" of violence. And I wonder how long it's going to be until the Mark flares up on him, dangerously so.

  • Wonder how the boys are doing on money lately? They've been away from the bunker for a bit, on the road, staring at motel room walls and all that, trying to reconnect...the way their faces lit up at the prospect of those jewels being real had me wondering if maybe the dragon gold had finally run out, so to speak.

  • Anyone else wondering how many times Dean's going to be able to be thrown across a room before he's not going to be able to get back up as quickly? Last two episodes had him absorbing some pretty mean hits, but then moving around like nobody's business. At least Sam didn't get strangled this time out!

  • Was that bridge that Sam was playing with the LeCroix sisters?

  • Was it me, or did 'Olivia' look like she could be Michelle Pfeiffer's daughter?

Over-used storytelling methods aside, I really appreciated the way Bobby was included in this story. Starting with Dean finding his phone to hearing Olivia's story of why Bobby was left anything in Bunny's will. It's was a nice way of offering layers to a character we all loved and miss. We really only scratched the surface of his storied life. I love, too, how Olivia recounted the story of how Bobby did his job -- killed the shifter (who just so happened to be her father) yet spared her -- and in her eyes he was a monster, but in Sam's eyes he was merciful.

It was a clever way of capturing the concept that we all see through our own filters, our own backgrounds. We all have our own interpretations of events. Hearing the exact same story, one saw a cruel act, the other saw kindness. I found that fascinating and it made me both wish somehow they'd known about Bunny before Bobby died so that they could have maybe stopped Olivia from exacting mis-aligned vengeance, and wonder how many other stories or contacts Bobby might have out there that the boys don't know about. Quite honestly, with his Vietnam past, his history with Rufus and with John Winchester...the possibilities could be endless.

I also liked how we had two episodes in a row where our first glimpse of Dean is him caring for his car. He mentions that he found Bobby's phone when he was "dust busting." When I'm overwhelmed, out of sorts, or in "analysis paralysis," one thing that always helps me is to clean something. My office, my house, our back yard, our car. The act of cleaning and organizing and using my hands to put something right is soothing. It makes me feel like I'm in control of something, that I might actually be able to fix what (in the moment, anyway) feels unfixable.

I see Dean doing something similar with his care with his car. The way he focuses on the Impala has been, through the years, a good indication of his state of mind. From beating it until it reflected his battered and broken heart to listening to her purr soon thereafter, showing Sam how to care for the engine pre-Hell, restoring it to his un-iPoded preferences post-Hell, trashing it up with food wrappers tossed in the back when he was alone, then referring to it as just a car when he wasn't himself...now he's taking great pains to shine and tweak the engine, fix the lights, organize the weapons cache, and clean out the inside so thoroughly he found a forgotten phone....

It's Dean's non-verbal cue that he's trying to put himself back together again. Like maintaining a classic car, it's a slow, steady, constant process. The parts aren't all there, or may be hard to come by because of the state of the chassis and the wear and tear on the engine, but a steady, faithful, guiding hand can work around missing parts, can repair broken ones, and can get it gleaming again -- outside and in. It's a project that takes continual supervision and patience and works best when there's someone to hand him the tools and hold the parts in place as he adjusts them.

Sam's watchful eye relaxed a bit this episode, which I liked, and he seemed just as frustrated as Dean that Murphy's Law of when they're ready to get back in the game, the game is rained out was the order of the day. Not only that, he was the first one to jump on the fact that there was a case. The brothers felt very symbiotic this episode in the way they divided and conquered to get the job done old-school. Of course, it helped that the "Gray Gardens" were mentally jumping Sam's bones from the moment he walked in the room. He could easily distract the family while Dean scoped out their sitch.

Which, in a way, kinda reminded me of the same thing that happened in Season 8's Trial and Error (complete with a Dallas-esque rich, oblivious, squabbling family), but with a better end result. As in, no one got snagged for a painful, deadly series of trials.

I will admit that I wanted the boys to clue in (no pun intended) more quickly that Olivia was their shifter when they were trapped in the office -- like before they saw it obviously playing out before them on the security monitors. After all, she was the one to get the 'silverware' that wasn't really silver. But there's only so much one can do when one is trapped in an office. I really liked that Sam was the one to distract Olivia while Dean ran out to the Impala to get the silver bullets (took me a minute to realize that was where he'd gone). It showed their trust in each other's strengths and that Sam had faith in Dean saving his life. May seem like a no, duh, moment, but I think any time we see Sam trusting Dean to save his life in these first few post-cure episodes is big.

Sam's flinching, though, when Dean kept firing, had me rubbing my heart. He can't help but still be a little scared of his brother. Or maybe it's scared for him. But there's fear there, none-the-less. And anxiety. In the "BM" scene at the end, you could see Sam playing out that promise Dean made to him, that if he felt himself go sideways even one little bit he'd tell him, when he asked if the extra shots were due to residual demon or because of the Mark. Personally, I don't think it's residual demon, but I do think they're fooling themselves if they think Dean isn't still feeling the effects of the Mark.

Like I said before, not killing actually made him sick before. Of course, that was after he'd been reunited with the First Blade and it had been taken away, so the effects could be...muted, now that it's once more just the Mark. After all, Cain was able to remain mostly non-homicidal while bearing the Mark for many, many years. But, then again, he was a demon.

It will be interesting to see how this continues to play out. All I know is that I'm glad to see them working together, the occasional protestation and worry to be expected. I didn't think we'd have an episode next week due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the States, but it appears that we do! Which is great because that means we should have three more new episodes before the mid-season break after December 9th.

See you guys then! Thanks for reading.

Slainte!

Excellent analogy of the state of Dean to the condition of Baby:

It's Dean's non-verbal cue that he's trying to put himself back together again. Like maintaining a classic car, it's a slow, steady, constant process. The parts aren't all there, or may be hard to come by because of the state of the chassis and the wear and tear on the engine, but a steady, faithful, guiding hand can work around missing parts, can repair broken ones, and can get it gleaming again -- outside and in. It's a project that takes continual supervision and patience and works best when there's someone to hand him the tools and hold the parts in place as he adjusts them.

I know a lot of fans are complaining they were shortchanged of more demon!Dean eps, but I personally am very, very happy to see the boys reconnected!

Could you tell if the replacement Samulet was still hanging on the review mirror?

It showed their trust in each other's strengths and that Sam had faith in Dean saving his life. May seem like a no, duh, moment, but I think any time we see Sam trusting Dean to save his life in these first few post-cure episodes is big.

You need to write a coda about that :)

Crap! I forgot to look! Go watch again for me and let me know. ;)

Hmmm...a coda, eh? *ponders*

And I'm with you. I already know how amazing Jensen's acting range is and how he can play scary-bad (see: last shot of him in his My Bloody Valentine movie *shudders*), but I am glad to see our Dean here and our brothers here. We've got plenty of drama to come, I'm sure. :)

I think you were spot on about Dean's state of mind being reflected in the way he is with the Impala. that was a perfect description.

I loved the return to a good old MoTW episode with just the right balance of humour. There were moments that had me laughing out loud like the lovely deadpan delivery of the wetting the pants question, Sam being felt up by the the 'Grey Gardens', Olivia calling Dean 'the cute, dumb one", and all the fabulous Clue references.

I also loved how the tone of the episode changed dramatically the moment Dean shot Olivia. I actually gasped out loud when he emptied the clip into her. Dean is in denial and Sam has every reason to be worried. This is obviously going to become a huge part of this season's story arc, and I think it's only going to get worse the further we get into the season. Great potential for some pretty scary things to happen though so I'm really interested to see how they play this out.

It's great to see the brothers connecting again. Things may not be perfect, and I'd feel ripped off if they were, but they're closer than they have been in a very long time. Their bond is what drew me to the show and I'm so glad to see it back.

Izabella Miko, the actress who played Olivia, bears an uncanny resemblance to a young Michelle Pfeiffer!

I'm looking forward to how they continue to build upon and play out the MoC storyline. And the fact that the brothers ARE connecting again makes that piece of the story all the more angsty and fantastic. :)

Thanks for commenting!

am going to hit and run tonight, after missing last two rambles .... but what an excellent episode. After not being a fan of the last two it was great to get back to a MotW episode. There was just so much to love about it.

Can't beleive that there is only 2 more episodes til hiatus , NOW that just sucks.

It's good to see you back! I've missed you. :) I'm glad you had a good time watching this one.

I actually think there may be three episodes before the hiatus -- 11/25, 12/2, and 12/9. I was thinking they'd skip 11/25, but it doesn't look like they're going to.

See you then?

There's a palpable feeling of hope, but it's still fragile. Like a ball of spun glass. With tacks trapped inside. And call me crazy, but...I like that. It's real.

And it's also kinda new, isn't it? And I love it.

Great ramble, many great observations. I honestly don't think I'd enjoy the episodes as much as I do without coming to your LJ afterwards. It always helps me organize my thoughts, put things into perspective... Thank you for that!
gaelicspirit
Nov. 23rd, 2014 10:15 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it is new. We haven't felt hope from the boys in quite a while.

I'm so pleased you enjoy reading the rambles -- hearing that makes doing so worthwhile! :)

Great review

Your statement "Sam's flinching, though, when Dean kept firing, had me rubbing my heart. He can't help but still be a little scared of his brother. Or maybe it's scared for him. But there's fear there, none-the-less. And anxiety. In the "BM" scene at the end, you could see Sam playing out that promise Dean made to him, that if he felt himself go sideways even one little bit he'd tell him, when he asked if the extra shots were due to residual demon or because of the Mark. Personally, I don't think it's residual demon, but I do think they're fooling themselves if they think Dean isn't still feeling the effects of the Mark."

I have to think that the Mark may be a problem but the fact is Dean has not touched the First blade yet and the symptoms were not that bad until after he touched the first blade when they were dealing with Magnus.

You know in the Supernatural universe it's not an if, it's a when Crowley needs Dean and Sam's help - specifically Dean he will bring that blade out and when Dean touched it again, yep the Mark will start the effects again. Hopefully they can get to Cain before hand.

We will see what happens. I did like the MOTW and the fact that it was Clue (didn't see the game in the attic - have to look again). The fact that they all touched the wrench, pipe, candlestick, rope, knife and gun - that was too funny.

Thank you for a great review.
gaelicspirit
Nov. 23rd, 2014 10:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah, you're right about the symptoms being worse when he was connected with the Blade; but there's definitely something there....

I thought they were quite clever with the Clue weapons -- especially when Dean grabbed the candlestick. That was too funny. :)

See you soon!

I loved this episode! It was so quirky and funny. I laughed far more than I probably should've at Sam's facial expressions when the cougars were propositioning, and then petting, him. Both boys had such lovely one-liners! As a fan of the game Clue, I really enjoyed seeing the various weapons and rooms and scenarios as dead bodies popped up everywhere. (I think I just might have to buy myself the Supernatural CLUE game for Christmas!)

I was shocked when Dean continued to shoot the shifter after the initial kill shot. The look on his face! Not cold and calculating really but driven or consumed. Jensen just blows me away. And you could see how worried Sam was as he watched--and flinched with every shot. Perhaps he is fearful too as you pointed out. That particular scene was so gripping, particularly because of all the humor that had just come before. Bravo, show!

Thanks, as always, for the delicious ramble. It always helps me focus my thoughts and helps me see things I missed literally and figuratively (as in the Clue game in the attic for one).

I'm so pleased you enjoy these rambles -- it's great to hear from you afterwards. :)

I didn't even know there WAS a "Supernatural" Clue game until after this episode. Now I want one! LOL!

I'm going to be really interested to see how they play out the MoC storyline and how the boys each react to whatever comes. Especially now that they're connecting again.

Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

I'll be honest. In spite of my love of Clue--game and movie--I was not excited about the premise of this episode. But it was a lot of fun AND still managed to generate real concern for Dean at the end. I enjoyed seeing the weapons and the "big" acting of the guest stars. It was also fun to have Sam deliver the humor, too, since he is more often the straight man--loved it when he ran off behind the cougar lady's back.

You are so right on when it comes to how the Winchesters are trying to really be there for each other--I love your analogy. I think it showed, too, in that kitchen scene. For once I didn't mind the monologuing from Olivia, since it's a standard murder mystery trope, and the actress went all out in her delivery. On Sam's side, beyond the stalling, waiting for Dean, I saw some of that hope you were talking about. When he came out of hiding (nice sheen of sweat, btw!) and faced her, I felt that he was giving her a chance to not be a monster. This is what he's hoping for with his brother, too, that he can save Dean from becoming a monster. His hope was twisted back on him, though, with that shot of Dean's face a clear indication that nothing is over yet.

I like your thoughts, too, on how Dean's treatment of the Impala reflects his mental state. Very sweet and insightful. I was just thinking that he was trying to make up for calling her "just a car."
gaelicspirit
Nov. 23rd, 2014 10:21 pm (UTC)
The actress did do a great job with the delivery of the reveal there at the end. I think maybe I was just grumbly when I wrote my "not so much" lists. ;)

I am looking forward to seeing what they do with the MoC storyline, especially now that the brothers are connecting. Should be interesting! :)

Your talking about the different viewpoints- Olivia thinking Bobby was a monster while Sam thought he was merciful - reminded me that yet again we actually have a situation similar to Colin in Ep 1 & 2 where it was Dean that killed the father and let the boy live, and even Ep 4 with Kate,where they decided to let her live (both in the past and present). We are definitely in a pattern here and I think they will be going somewhere with this idea.

Also thank you for reminding us about Dean fixing the impala and how that reflects his healing as well. I'm glad actually. I am very worried about that Mark, but this gives me some hope.

The story itself was a little corny - especially Dean's talk with the guy at the end *smirks* but as you said, pretty good as a preparatory ep for something more serious. I enjoyed laughing throughout the ep and then yeah, the little bit of serious "It was my first kill" Ug. The way he stressed the fact that it was "a kill" kind of scared me actually. Yikes...
gaelicspirit
Nov. 23rd, 2014 10:24 pm (UTC)
You bring up good reminders here -- of Dean letting the children of the 'monsters' live, just as Bobby did (though, I think you mean "Clay" not "Colin"...right?).

It will be interesting to see how that ultimately plays out.

I thought the use of the word "kill" was a specific choice as well. He could have said 'hunt' which is how they usually couch what they're doing, but using that word made it sound more vicious and...dangerous to Dean, in a way.

Always glad to hear from you! :)

”He can't help but still be a little scared of his brother. Or maybe it's scared for him.” I think he’s definitely scared for him not of him.

I like the episode, obviously not as much as last weeks but is was enjoyable to watch, I’m pleased they added the part where Dean shot the shifter several times, I’m happy that at last they are, albeit slowly, referring to the MOC and not brushing it under the carpet like they have done with many other things, ie Dean’s drinking/PTSD after Hell to name but one.

I was sad not to see the ‘samulet’ still hanging from the rear view mirrow, it would have been nice it they’d left it there.

Nov. 23rd, 2014 10:25 pm (UTC)
I am really interested where they're going to take the MoC storyline, especially now that the boys are connecting. I REALLY hope there's no carpet-brushing, dangit.

And, yeah, I had hoped we'd see the amulet, too. C'mon, props department!! :)

It wasn't as clueish as i hoped it would be for you but I got a kick out of it every time they picked up a weapon that was game related. I figured out it was the maid long before they did. I really felt like Dean's 'overkill' at the end was to remind us that all was not sunshine and roses and foretells of bad to come. at least I hope it does.
gaelicspirit
Nov. 23rd, 2014 10:26 pm (UTC)
It would have been fun for me if they'd totally gone all Clue'd out, but then it might not have resonated with very many outside of, well, me. ;)

I liked that they had the overkill, too. We need to remember that Dean is still not 100%, not even close, no matter how well he plays it.

I miss you. :(

I loved your Ramble as much as I loved this episode! Meaning a lot, of course. I agree with everything you said. I loved the parallel you drew between Dean reassembling the Impala and his reassembling himself. I also wonder if there is a little guilt there, since he treated the car so badly when he was a demon. I totally agree that they could not go back to a straight dramatic episode after 200. That would have hurt my head and heart.

It feels so good, like a sigh of relief, that the boys are liking each other right now!

I don't think our episodes could work any better way than= "our first glimpse of Dean is him caring for his car". In every other way, your commentary is, as always, spectacularly to the point. And the boyz -specially Dean- are incredibly brotherly, thank goodness!!!. All this said, I usually trust my judgment as to eps, but my experience is never complete until I read your stream of consciousness... Thank you!

Re: last ep
Thank you! I'm so pleased these rambles add to your viewing enjoyment. :) It's good to see the brothers connecting again.
