Supernatural 8.12: So when did the multidimensional wavelength of celestial intent start molting?

SPN_banner_2012

blank-postcard_zps450d883f

OK, I’m not going to even pretend that my favorite part of this episode wasn’t the previews with JDM. Because of JDM reasons.

Dkz5R

This is where we really start:

SPN812HD_0055

Yes, John Winchester was born in Normal. Somewhere in an office on the Warner Brothers studio lot in Los Angeles,  Jeremy Carver looks into his magical mirror and laughs and laughs. 

Meanwhile, Grandpa Timey-Wimey creeps on bb!Sir because that’s apparently what you do on this show if you are a father figure, angel, or horny dog. I mean, he is wearing a trenchcoat, so the creeping part fits.

Creeper-gramps

Grandpa Timey-Wimey heads down the Vancouver Alley #2 to a building with an Illuminati symbol on it. He does the secret knock he learned in Illuminati camp and the door opens. The hallway leads to BEYON…no, not Beyonce. It’s the Black Canary from Smallville! Hay gurl, hay! You’re so gorgeous, my face hurts.

SPN812HD_0139She’s also a Stargate alum, but that doesn’t burn my soul now that I have canon Amanda Tapping

I do have to say that Grandpa Timey-Wimey is adorable and has a perfect Winchester nose.

SPN812HD_0154

Suddenly, Lady Gag…no, not Lady Gaga, the Illuminati Camp counselor dude comes out and takes Black Canary and her lipstick in to get ~initiated~ (hmmm). Grandpa Timey-Wimey stays outside and contemplates what his wife is currently thinking about the fact that he’s out in the middle of the night with beautiful women, until he hears what is quite frankly an amazing bird call and a clear winning entry in the TSM contest.

TSM-Champ

Grandpa Timey-Wimey is like “ruh roh!” because he knows that there will be no one born until his first grandson who can compete with that TSM. He takes off running when he realizes his buddy has ebola.

SPN812HD_0198

 He does some fancy spellwork with ingredients that I will rage about uncontrollably later, and then sigils himself out of Vancouver Alley #2 and right into the Winchester’s motel room of the week.

Closted

Dimples is like “yay, hot guy just fell out of our closet!” and Freckles is like “ah shit, I’m totally getting DP’ed tonight, aren’t I?”

SPN812HD_0283

 Timey-Wimey asks for Sir instead, and I guess JDM is more his type, so your ass is safe tonight, Freckles!

He figures he’ll get a little manhandling in at the very least

812-dean002

 And then hopefully use the power of Jensen Ackles Face™ to prove that his ass is just as good as JDM’s, thank you very much.

812-dean003Grandpa considers it for a moment because, well, look at Jensen.

SPN812HD_0322

But ultimately, he is not comfortable with the normal canon amount of relative-touching.

Hands-onI do love how Freckles just holds him there while Dimples talks. We know who is calling the shots in this hypothetical only-in-my-mind incestuous threesome!

Of course, the next step in a scenario like this (i.e. when a hot guy falls out of your closet) is of course: HANDCUFFS! I mean, kink bingo cannot be ignored, people.

Handcuffs1

Handcuffs2

I’m sure that Freckles had those handcuffs out and lying around for completely innocent reasons. I mean, thank god Timey-Wimey didn’t fall out of the closet ten minutes prior, amirite?

Anyway, Grandpa is totes Illuminati, which means that things like handcuffs and the Geneva Convention and governments of the world can’t hold him down. He leaves the boys handcuffed to each other (I’m sure they can think of something to pass the time) and then heads outside, where he is confused by modern things like a father taking care of his children.

SPN812HD_0369

 He heads over to check out the nearest license plate, where he discovers that he traveled to 2013. The in-canon joke is this:

Mayans

But the out-of-canon joke is this: CANON?? LOL CANON!

Two separate year long time jumps don’t count, people! It was night and now it’s day! 

tumblr_meti0ex77k1r04zsmThen he does the most despicable thing a man can do i.e. harm the Most Important Object in the Universe

Impala

 Someone doesn’t appreciate it.

Staredown

I just want to know how that didn’t BREAK HIS ELBOW.

They take him back in to do the normal monster checks and he calls Freckles his “alpha male monkey friend”. Timey-Wimey should be writing these recaps because he sure has a way with the nicknames.

Freckles accidentally admits that they are the Spawn of JDM and Timey-Wimey is like “ORLY” and Dimples is like “moron.” Luckily, they are interrupted by Black Canary busting through the Stargate. She quickly reunites me with my real OTP: Dean/Wall

lulz

Freckles does manage to sneak up on her and gank her with Ruby’s knife but OOPS it totally doesn’t work because this is Jeremy Carver’s world and we just recap in it. The only thing left to do is run, bitch, ruuuuuun.

tumblr_mhhfui9Crp1qiyteto1_400

They take off in the car, but Black Canary is the new breed of demon baddie and does some kind of mind control-vision thing with the motel clerk via a  real “blow job” (thanks for the label, Kat lol)

Blow-job

We get  a lovely shot of the Impala driving under Vancouver Bridge #1, and it should be noted that this is the first episode directed by the long-time director of photography Serge Ladouceur.

812-impala001

Grandpa Timey-Wimey isn’t doing too well and has a bit of car sickness. While he’s throwing up, I notice that Dimples seems to have gotten both a haircut and a blowout.

SPN812HD_0608

 

Grandpa tells them that Black Canary is from hell and Freckles is like “been there, done that”

Dean-close

He tells them that he’s from 1958 and Freckles is like “Carver sure is running out of ideas, eh?” and Amen, brother.

Finally, they tell him that Sir is dead and poor Timey-Wimey is all sad. They want to know why he cares so much and he reveals that he is Grandpa Timey-Wimey. That inspires a couple of by-now-customary zoooooms.

812-sam003

812-dean006

They head over to the diner, because a milkshake always helps when your grandfather time travels from 1958 and falls out of your closet just in time for a kinky threesome.

Dimples insists that his story checks out and he is their grandfather, but Freckles then points out that he ditched Sir when he was a kid.

OK, guys, lets talk about retcon. Pretty much everyone has discussed at this point how references were made to Sir’s father in 4.3 when he was still played adorably by Matt Cohen’s Thighs. Also, he referenced himself as a “mechanic from a family of mechanics” not ” a mechanic from a family of Illuminati demon-fighting time travelers”. Please note that Jeremy Carver himself wrote that episode.

A full 24 hours after the episode, after being badgered by people asking the same thing as above, the guy who supposedly remembers stuff like this (from the CIA black-op prison) tweeted his fan-wank:

@SNkevinandjill

Since John was do young when Henry disappeared the man mom remarried could be considered Dad. Somebody blue collar

OK, that’s what most people fan-wanked and is a totally acceptable answer. BUT IT’S STILL FANWANK, even if it comes from someone connected to the show. The problem with things like this is that the show has become so fucking sloppy that it takes the audience badgering the creative people on Twitter in order to answer a simple question that could have easily been inserted via ONE LINE in the script itself (i.e. making it canon). If you want to retcon something, then go ahead and retcon it! But make sure you actually do it on-screen instead of in your fucking head.

Anyway, back to what is on-screen. Freckles says something interesting then about Sir “always being there” for them, and even someone like me, with my obvious JDM-influenced sympathies, knows that isn’t true. The reason I think it’s interesting and a bit dis-jointed, is that in recent years, Freckles is the one that has been harsh with the memory of his father, and dealing with the way they were treated by him growing up. Dimples, on the other hand, had seemingly made peace with his feelings about his father.

The dynamic here seems to flip back to their early ones and I’m torn by whether this is just Carver forgetting that Sera Gamble even existed, or if Freckles defending his father is a defense mechanism induced by being faced with someone who he considers to have done wrong to the man that was his hero for most of his life.

Meanwhile, Grandpa Timey-Wimey is like “omg my grandsons are handsome

SPN812HD_0715

Grandpa starts in on the exposition for the reboot and goes on about all the stuff that they don’t know but will soon know for reboot reasons (because BOBBY’s Magical Library is still in Sheriff Sassy’s trunk) and tells them they totally suck because they don’t know anything about the Illuminati or even how many body thetans Xenu dropped to earth during the intergalactic war.

Boy-bands

 I am highly pleased that Dimples is still eating just a salad lol. You don’t get that gorgeous ripped body with protein, guys, c’mon!

Dimples tells Timey-Wimey that they are not Scientologis or Illuminati, and the hats that the Masons wear are pretty stupid, so they’re no good either. Gramps is not pleased to know that they are hunters i.e. “apes”

812-dean007

…and not “legacies”, whatever that means.

Sam-legacy

Legacies

They drive four hours (they must be in Argentina by now!) to Vancouver Alley #1, where the Illuminati Camp HQ is now a comic book store. Blah-blah more exposition, and something something and Magic Library and something-Buffy-something, and reboot!

Samwat

Exactly!

Yodas

You know what I find hilarious? That literally the only thing Carver knows about S6 is the epic stylings of DJ SAM.

He shows them a box that Illuminati Camp Counselor gave him to protect before the ebola got him, but he doesn’t know what’s in it. I will give Jeremy Carver my hypothetical future illegitimate children with JDM if the SAMULET is in there.

wth

Anyway, we get some ~wacky fish-out-of-water shenanigans that have been done a few hundred times with Sparks,

…before they finally decide to get the goth store clerk to let them use her laptop to google the other camp counselors.

I LOL when Freckles makes Dimples do the hard “looking up things on the internet” thing because he’s Research!Sammy and some episodes that’s his only role.

SPN812HD_1078

There is nothing Research!Sammy can’t find (I swear he probably looked up “how do you keep the devil out of your orifices?” at least twice) and they head to a graveyard to where at least one of the camp counselors is supposed to be buried.

Body1Body2LOL of course he makes the peasants do the digging. That made me realize who Grandpa Timey-Wimey looks like –the dude that played Viserys on Game of Thrones

Harry-harry-lloyd-30182464-500-654Meanwhile, Black Canary is over at the comic shop giving goth girl a blow-job and remaining gorgeous while doing it.

SPN812HD_1242Back to the graveyard, where the body does not belong to the camp counselor but maybe that means he survived and stole someone’s identity and…other stuff, I have no idea. Call me when JDM comes back.

WhateverGrandpa Timey-Wimey starts humming Timey-Wimey tunes and Freckles doesn’t appreciate the non-classic rock value of it.

SPN812HD_1317I see that “looking good in a white dress shirt” is a genetic trait. Rawr!

SPN812HD_1373I do like that the wallpaper kind of looks like hourglasses.

Dimples is looking through Sir’s journal and finds references to “Knights of Hell”, which Timey-Wimey clarifies are the “first fallen, first demons.” Since we know that LILITH was the very first demon (because, you know, that was a big deal and all), I’m thinking that perhaps these were actually fallen ANGELS who were turned into demons, and that’s why they are impervious to demon-ganking methods.

I’m going to go out on a limb and place bets that FERGUS turns out to be one of them. It would explain how he knows Enochian, and how he was able to get as powerful as he can as supposedly ~young demon.

Timey-Wimey wants to look at the journal and Dimples is like “NO BIG!” while Freckles is like “GRRR”

No-bigTerritorialThen they retcon Sir’s Journal into Grandpa Timey-Wimey’s, because why would the boys ever have wondered about the random initials on it, right? I mean, they didn’t even bother wondering about the super-strong-hand-picked-by-Lucifer-demon-knights that Sir doodled about, even during that whole Apocalypse thing.

SPN812HD_1429Timey-Wimey realizes suddenly that he probably doesn’t make it out of this episode alive. Dimples is like “sorry, buddy, join the club.”

Then Freckles gives Timey-Wimey the cliff notes version of all the bad shit that happened to his son, and he keeps up the defensive mode.

Dean-on-JohnPart of me wonders if he’s talking about himself here a little bit. I think giving Sir redemption from the bad choices he made is something that Freckles feels he needs at this point to rid himself of some of his guilt issues. I don’t think he is as fatalistic (or suicidal) as he was, and part of his renewed hunting vigor post-purgatory is in part him trying to remind himself that he’s doing some good in the world to outweigh all the bad.

Grandpa answers him that it wasn’t his choice, and we all know how Freckles feels about free will and being able to make ones own choices (except Dimples, but Freckles has worked hard the last few episodes to let him make them and deal with them).

He takes off to earn a few bucks at the truck stop before bed.

SPN812HD_1532He does comes back, and the boys go to bed while Grandpa stays up and watches them creepily (as he is wont to do)

Grandwincest-threesomeBest part is the next morning, when Freckles wakes up clutching Dimples’ pillow. BECAUSE OF COURSE HE IS.

tumblr_mhh28zGi1d1qhkbteo1_500_zps028df4b9tumblr_mhh23gf2RQ1qetpu1o1_r1_500_zps1a610424Also of importance; Jared Padalecki in a t-shirt.

tumblr_mhjtsy8NE11qdeg3ro2_250_zps3d364cedtumblr_mhjtsy8NE11qdeg3ro3_250_zps91fcc1d7

I believe he’s saying that Grandpa Timey-Wimey took off like Jimmy Novak in the night, but I’m too busy looking at Jared Padalecki in a t-shirt and Freckles hugging his brother’s pillow to smell his musk.

So yeah, Grandpa Timey-Wimey is off to the local Spells R Us, but not before stealing some ingredients out of the trunk of the impala.

Molting-angels

STOP.

Angel feather. Angel FEATHER. A.N.G.E.L.F.E.A.T.H.E.R.

This is my completely calm text message exchange with my boyfriend about the introduction of literal angel feathers:

ME: ANGELS DON’T HAVE LITERAL FEATHERS!!

: It’s canon now, baby!

ME: FUCK YOU!!!!!

Where oh where are the magnificent angels of S4? Even Zach had some gravitas, and he was basically the biblical Michael Scott. Could you even imagine the scorn on Uriel’s face if he found out that Jeremy Carver has turned him into a down comforter?? We’ve had a lot of downgrades over the years (Bobby to Garth, Gordon to Benny, Ruby 1 to Ruby 2) but nothing is as offensive to me as the descent from Uriel to Saint Bob of Burger King.

And it doesn’t even make any sense!! Even if we take Sparks, the multidimensional wavelength of celestial intent, and assume that his true form somehow has feathers–it’s the size of the Chrysler Building!! And the whole point of an angel’s true form is that the human eye/brain can’t bear it (see: Barnes, Pamela), so how can there be a physical manifestation of any part of it?? It doesn’t make any sense! It’s stupid! And most importantly:

 AMANDA TAPPING IS NOT A CHICKEN

tumblr_m8wt5uMA1u1r9c1l1o5_250/chocolate break

And we’re back.

Freckles goes off to find Grandpa, while Dimples goes to interview the Camp Counselor that escaped ebola and stole some other dude’s identity. The establishing shot they use is from, like, S4 or something lol. Not even the same Doom Chops!

LazyEbola Guy is now blind (from ebola, duh) and like 157 years old. Dimples tells him that Black Canary is in town and wants to know what’s in the box. Ebola Guy is like:

If-theres-a-keyAnd Dimples is like “THEN THERE HAS TO BE A LOCK!!”

812-sam006

and everything is suddenly super clear.

Over to the comic store, where Grandpa Timey-Wimey is trying to get back to JDM. I mean, I don’t blame him. Freckles is like “What about me?? I CAN DO THIS!”

SPN812HD_1816

 Grandpa is momentarily swayed, because that shit is impressive.

SPN812HD_1833

But ultimately, JDM wins out and Freckles has to bust out the big guns:

Apocalypse

And Grandpa Timey-Wimey is like “LOL CANON”

SPN812HD_1818

“Well, shit.”

Back to Dimples, who is like “yesterday was Tuesday, but today is Tuesday too!”

SPN812HD_1839

And Ebola Guy replies:

SPN812HD_1844

And then Dimples is like “It was night, but now it’s day!”

SPN812HD_1872

And Ebola Guy is all:

SPN812HD_1844And Dimples is like “well, damn, there really is a lock. Who knew they’d remember canon like that?”

SPN812HD_1889Then Black Canary wearing the old lady knocks out Dimples and ganks Ebola guy, but luckily not before he gives Dimples the coordinates to the Fortress of Solitude somewhere safe.

Back to the comic store, where Freckles gets a call from Black Canary via Dimples’ phone.

SPN812HD_1945Flawless.

She wants to trade Dimples for Grandpa and the key (lock!) and Freckles does that “sigh, I’m gonna have to throw another less important family member under the bus for my soulmate again” face.

812-dean010

Speaking of poor Adam, could you imagine how hilarious it would have been if Timey-Wimey’s spell sent him to his next of kin in the Cage in hell? I mean, not that they would ever do that because we’re not supposed to remember that the poor boy exists, but still, hilarity.

Jake-jake-abel-14120059-500-375-1

Timey-Wimey is like “don’t trade me, I can be useful”

SPN812HD_1976

But Freckles is like “LOL, have you seen the size of his human penis?” and knocks Grandpappy out.

Later in the car, and Freckles explains that he can’t let his brother down because of Dean Winchester reasons.

Brother-love1

Brother-love2

*silent OTP squee*

Over to Vancouver Warehouse #2, where they do the trade. Black Canary doesn’t really let them leave because, duh, and then attempts a rather bloody version of soul-fisting. Not sure that’s how you’re supposed to do it, sis. It does let Timey-Wimey get close enough to get a head-shot in

Turns out that it was all a plan, and Freckles and Timey-Wimey carved a Devil’s Trap in the bullet. They don’t specify whose idea it was, but I prefer to think it was the same Smart!Dean who killed Teen Mom with the phoenix ash bite lol.

Bright-ideaThe bullet keeps her from smoking out, and Freckles gets a good beheading in there for good measure.

BeheadingWe are going to ignore the fact that a chin shot like that totally would have sent the bullet right through the skull and out the top of her head. LOL CANON.

She’s really fucking hot. Did I mention that?

SPN812HD_2195The boys have a sensitive moment over Grandpa’s dying body, as he says he’s proud of them even though they are uncouth apes with a serious lack of brillcream.

Boys

His next line is supposed to be all inspiring and shit but it just conjured terrifying images in my mind of pregnant elves popping up in the finale carrying an invite to the Maury Povich show.

Winchester-hopeWe get the 50′s version of the hypothetical only-in-my-mind incestuous threesome as Timey-Wimey kicks the bucket.

DyingJensen Ackles’ Lips™, however, remain flawlessly moisturized *pointed side-eye*

SPN812HD_2267

Back to the cemetery, where they bury Grandpa. Dimples then sums up Carver’s version of Kripke’s Cupid storyline, and the uniting of the Winchesters and Campbells.

Brains-and-brawn

Proving that not only does Stalker!Carver have a spy-cam in my bedroom, it also seems like he has a nano-chip in my brain stem, because I tweeted this more than 30mins before Dimples said it:

@Patronhippie

So Cupid set up Brain (Winchester) and Brawn (Campbell) to create the vessel line

 Freckles is unimpressed.

Whole-lot-of-dead

They have the key (lock!) and part of me is shocked that they didn’t throw it in the trunk and talk about having work to do.

Legacies1

 Bring on the reboot!

Legacies2

 

Thoughts:

So what do we think about the reboot? To me, this was a decent episode: it had some good acting and directing (rare this season, lets be honest), and it moved along at a good clip, plus Henry was great casting. But it was so full of (often times confusing) exposition (thanks Henry!) that the only way I was able to read it was as a sort of backdoor pilot. My boyfriend loves it, or at least the possibility of it. He is even warier than I am about this show, which somehow remains his favorite lol. It’s a weird thing, the emotional attachment we have to this show and these characters, isn’t it?

That’s perhaps why the retcon of John Winchester saddens me a bit. Because, really, part of the tragedy of John Winchester, maybe the biggest part, is the fact that he was quite literally a normal guy who was dragged through the fire and thrown into a world that he never expected, and eventually became his own sort of monster. No demon could destroy John’s family quite like John himself, and, because of that, they all paid a price. 

John wasn’t special. John was a mechanic from a small town who went to war and made it through. He loved a girl, and then lost her. In a world where everyone (and their mother–hey Mary!) had Daddy Issues™, John didn’t. Cupid might have put them together because of their blood, but John’s eventual choices were all him, and the idea of a relatively well-adjusted guy making a really bad left turn is more interesting to me personally.

Carver knows this of course. The “Normal” birthplace is the writers winking at (mocking?) that fact. And, overall, it’s fine. Giving John daddy issues makes him more sympathetic ultimately. It adds a new layer to why he reacted so strongly to Sam leaving for college (i.e. “abandoning his family”). And perhaps Sam’s Ivy League ambitions touched a chord in John that reacted badly to Henry’s more learned and higher-class academic leanings. But does it make him more interesting of a character? To me, not really.

But lets be honest–this show hasn’t been about normal guys drawn into a funky world since Kripke introduced God and the devil and fanfiction Gospels. Or when they turned a funny prankster villain into a emo archangel with (shocker!) daddy issues. Or, frankly, since an angel walked through the door and blew out the lights. So it’s hard to blame Carver (bastard) for rebooting his way into another two seasons.

At least this reboot is connected to family instead of peripherals. And it’s a good way to give Sam a believable interest again in hunting, for him to find a purpose in the post-Keebler world. I, for one, am interested in where they are going and will give it a shot.

OK full disclosure: I admit that I’m actually okay because now I’m imagining Man of Letters John to look like this:

    I do feel that Carver has hit the really big reset button, but I feel it was needed. I don’t care if he wants us to pretend that season 6 and 7 never existed. I’m good with that. Notice in the “Then” that there were no recap images from those seasons. As for JDM, he is hot, John Winchester…meh. I am happy to see his story somewhat improved. I think he had his flaws, but he was not an evil man and he did start to get trampled on. I’m okay with Dean’s whole mixed feelings. I think that’s typical given that John treated Dean good and badly over the years. I’m looking forward to something good! Please Carver, you’re are only hope.

    Grandpa Winchester was great casting. I really liked the nerdy Jedi vibe and the fact that John simply had no idea. Now Sam can be justifiably nerdy and everyone will be happy again and Gabriel will return and they’ll remember they had a brother. ;) Ya know, all those wonderful things and then JDM will show up in episode 10.23 as GOD and all will be right with the world.

  2. Annalieae

    I decided to just let all the ‘problems’ with the storyline go and enjoy the episode for what is was – a really great episode. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make fun of it afterwards does it? Another perfect recap!

  3. Allie

    Great recap! I literally laughed out loud at, “If there’s a lock, there has to be a key!”

    I was pretty meh about this episode until Dean called Sam Sammy. And then things were all butterflies and rainbows. :-)

  4. banjomary

    I, for the first time all season, am caught up. I marathoned the first however many episodes after watching LARP and the Real Girl. I never intended to NOT watch, I just wasn’t very motivated TO watch. I have zero interest in Sera’s or Jeremy’s bullshit “normalcy” storylines.

    But it’s weird, knowing what was coming, and establishing (in my head, lol) that Sam just gave up and settled for sloppy seconds, I mostly ignored the dumb-ass flashbacks and enjoyed the pretty. Not having to drag the crappy stuff out over weeks made LARP and this reboot epi even better, I think. The retconning is pretty aggressive, lol, but I guess we’ve learned there are worse things they could do. Heh.

    Overall, I’m really looking forward to the whole legacy thing. “What the hell, it has to be better than what they’ve been doing.” That’s my motto for the second half of this season. And honestly, like you, I’m ridiculously attached to these characters, and even more ridic attached to these 2 actors, so….bring it on.

    And your recaps remain the Best. Thing. Ever. *goes back to catch up on all the awesome I’ve missed*

  5. char

    it’s like everything JUST STARTED OVER!!!!!!! I didn’t meant he caps but I did.

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

    I think we should get him back now. :)

    Did you ever think you would get to type this? “We get the 50′s version of the hypothetical only-in-my-mind incestuous threesome as Timey-Wimey kicks the bucket.” HAHAHAHA

  6. Meggin Lane

    Great catch about the background designs in their motel room: “I do like that the wallpaper kind of looks like hourglasses.” I missed that, I guess we all have to get used to more ‘subtle’ and less sledgehammer huh?

    I think you’re right about Freckles sudden and loud defense of Sir’s actions being a wee bit tangled up with his own guilt issues: can we all say “transference”?

    And about the boys sleeping arrangements, do ya think they are going to sleep under the covers…with pants off…ever again? ~~wimpers~~

    Everything you said about angle feathers. I mean IF it existed it would have been the size of the Impala and impossible to fit in the trunk. And why would Cas have let Dean have one? For what purpose would Freckles and Dimples need to cart the fluffy white thing around from motel to motel…except… oh! No wonder Freckles was pissed gramps took it!

    This episode was one of the best this season for two reasons. First the pace. It’s been a while since we’ve had that roller-coaster combination of action and new info to push the plot. And it was chock full o’ EMO between the brothers and memories of Bobby- who was their own man of letters; dressed in faded plaid flannel and grimy baseball cap instead of a spiffy suit. Damn, I miss him!

    I love how you recapped this. Just the right amount of skepticism about the show’s regard to canon, a pinch of hope for what may lay ahead once the boys find the lock that goes with that key and all the righteous indignation Jeremy deserves for the freaking angle feather. Now we gotta deal with puns about Cas getting himself royally “plucked” by Naomi when ever he’s in heaven- sheesh.

  7. todayiamrhonda

    Loved the recap. This season confuses me, but then I am easily confused most days. I just watch for the pretty and I have your recaps to explain the rest to me! http://www.thehomeplanet.org/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_good.gif

  8. sarahk

    I look forward to reading your recaps – your honesty and humour are refreshing :)

  9. CC

    all i have to say is that someone better damn explain how sam could just not even bother looking for dean. use your brain chip to tell carver that lol

  10. Pinkwood

    LOL! CC! Gurl, you said it. We won’t forget that easily, JEREMY.

    Loooooook, I admit it. Time travel confuses the shit outta me. I have no clue. But yes to all of the above. The feather thing just totally came from left-field. Feathers the size of skyscrapers? John’ dad wasn’t his dad? Time travelling Samulets (I have no idea how it got there BUT I FUCKING WANT IT SOOOOOOOOO BAD).

    JC, *whispers* you skurred me with talk of elf babies. Don’t give Carver ideas!

    But I’m mostly happy with this episode. Puzzled as all fuck but pillow cuddling and ‘Sammy’ = Happy Pinky. I’m easy. You know this.

    Awesome recap as always, beautiful gifs and thanks for expending precious brain power trying to figure it all out so I didn’t have to :D

    “His next line is supposed to be all inspiring and shit but it just conjured terrifying images in my mind of pregnant elves popping up in the finale carrying an invite to the Maury Povich show.”

    Oh God Please NOOOO, but lol.

    The season needed a reboot, the whole show needed a reboot and I’m glad they did it this way… too bad it took a half a season to do it! It opens the door for so much more if they want to go to 10. It was stagnant and boring IMO. I really hope the Samulet is in that box too, but it won’t be, it’s the KEY to the LOCK to the new digs and YAY I’m really looking forward to the boys having a place of their own finally, and can you imagine the fic that will be written about those tables??? and the new bedroom(s) will be a treasure trove of fic fantasy. Just when we thought there was nothing left to write about…JACKPOT!

    Ditto on all your other points, as always. Till next week…thanks JC :D http://www.thehomeplanet.org/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_good.gif

    s not simply an “acne relief” or ” skin-care program”.
    The first thing you need to realize is that contrary to what many
    skin experts believe, the food that you eat has a lot to do with acne.
    That was until a friend told me about the extremely simple program he
    used to quickly clear up his skin.
