I meant to say this last week: what is up with Dean’s jacket? He already HAD a leather jacket, and one with character. It was worn and rugged and tough. Yeah, yeah, it was from the old days, before they retconned John completely into Bad Father so Bobby could be Good Father. Harumph.
There was a lot going on this episode, but I thought it hung together pretty well. Perhaps a bit rushed, but that’s what happens when you’ve got so many loose threads.
Bobby – see, I knew he would eventually have to go. I’m glad they didn’t make it a violent end, but it all seemed so pointless. If he’d stuck around and actually been able to do something other than realize he shouldn’t have stuck around, maybe it’d have been okay. But that isn’t what happened. Supernatural killed him off, exploited our emotions a bit, and then killed him off again. I steadfastly maintain my opinion that the whole thing was an utter waste.
Meg. I never thought I’d love Meg, she being an evil demon and all, but I actually do. “He was your boyfriend first.” Bwahaha. Cute. I fear for her safety. Will we see her again? Will she still be friendly to the Winchesters, or blame them for getting her in Crowley’s crosshairs? I can’t remember why he wants her dead or suffering so much. Is she that powerful? I hope so. It would be interesting and a bit terrifying for her to take over the reigns as the queen of hell.
Castiel. Poor, crazy Castiel. “Doesn’t this place feel one species short?” I thought there would be more to his reluctance to help out than guilt, though. Glad he came through in the end. Well, not the very end, but I suspect he’ll come through at the very beginning of next year where that’s concerned.
Yeah, I didn’t figure Kevin Tran would have been let go. I wonder if his mom made it, or if she was eaten. Money’s on the latter. Or, we’ll never find out, because she, of course, doesn’t matter. I was a tad disturbed by the complacent little blonde girl I pegged as a sacrifice from the moment she set a placid foot in Kevin’s cell. Why exactly was she put in there, anyway? It was a big facility – was there a reason Kevin had to see her, other than to steal a hairpin so he could break out and overhear the Big Master Plan?
Anyway, Polly and her being a sacrificial lamb really creeped me out, though I did laugh a little bit that the Big Master Plan was to send a bunch of nonfat creamer laced with lethal drugs to Hollywood to kill off all the skinny people. I know, I shouldn’t have laughed at that. It was a nervous reaction, I swear.
Crowley. Now, who didn’t know that he’d doublecross? He’s a conniving, smarmy little jerk, isn’t he? I enjoy him, but I really hope by series end (will Supernatural ever end – please, Show, I love you, but all good things should end before they become so bad it hurts) that he gets some comeuppance.
So, they killed Dick rather easily, but there’s still a metric shit ton of Levianthan out there to kill. Not only that, but Dick had a death curse of sorts and dragged Castiel and Dean into Purgatory, leaving our little Sammy all alone in the world. So, they’ve got to find a way out, Sam needs to figure out where they are and get them out, Sam has to rescue Kevin Tran (because I like Kevin, damn it, the poor kid) and Meg and… It’s a lot.
And I heard that Supernatural is moving to Wednesdays in the autumn.
