As usual, Wincest underlined for your squick-avoiding convenience.
On the whole, this episode was okay. I enjoyed it a lot, it was fun, there was some stuff that annoyed me and nothing blew me out of the water, but it was certainly better than the last episode, for example.
The dead meat at the beginning wasn't really anything worth commenting on, except that insta balding like that distressed me and I may never marry a man now that I have that image in my head.
Dean made an Obama joke. SHOW--I am exasperated by your sudden attempt to be political. I mean, Dick Cheney was pretty great, and the joke about change we can believe in wasn't bad, it's just like, this was number, what, five this season? When did we start trying to be THAT show?
Guys, I am so fucking annoyed with what they're doing with Bobby this season. My biggest complaint with the episode--he is just so bratty. I mean, I get it and the speech he gave about not being a hunter anymore and being useless was really heartbreaking, but Olivia insists that now that we've talked these things out he will go back to being regular Bobby and I require it like I require macaroni pictures.
My other annoyance, since I have no where better to put it, is just that I didn't get enough BOYS interaction. I know, I'm just spoiled. But really, what do they think I'm watching for? :P
"As if we're ever going to live that long." "Right about that." - BOYS. YOU WILL LIVE FAR INTO OLD AGE. AND LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT YOUR CURTAINS. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A HOUSE AND IT WILL HAVE CURTAINS. AND YOU MIGHT EVEN RAISE A KID OR TWO, WHO KNOWS. MY POINT IS, IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
Okay, who the fuck else just wanted to FUCK THE SHIT OUT OF the guy in bed with the two Asian chicks? HE WAS HOT TO THE POINT OF DISTRACTION. It is hard to look that good when standing in a room with Jared and Jensen, let me tell you internet. I was so sad that HE wasn't cast as the Manwitch (yes, I know, should be man-witch, but I like manwitch better, makes me think of a Sam/Dean/witch sandwich), because I needed him to have a bigger part. So I could stare at him longer. WHO OBJECTIFIES MEN? THAT'S JUST RUDE. But for the record, Dean wanted to fuck that guy almost as much as I did. He peeped that, dude. You know what I'm talking about. The manwitch was not even half as hot as that guy, and also, what kind of epic fail excuse for an irish accent was that? Was there any particular reason we had to make him Irish? Because it just meant fail.
Sam made an Xbox reference? Really, Sam? This week on Supernatural: We discover what Sam did during the three months he and Dean spent apart between 5x03 and 5x04...he did things that made him think of Dean and cried apparently. Also see: Star Wars joke later in the episode (which made me jizz in my pants, not gonna lie).
"Stay classy." - I love this phrase and probably had sex with Dean 90 times.
"Your turn to grab dinner." "The usual?" - OMGOMGOMG. BOYS. WITH CASUAL INTIMACY! It is my favorite thing ever, literally my favorite thing and this was such a good example of it. THEIR LOVE IS GIANT AND SPARKLY AND WONDERFULLY DELICIOUS.
I don't think I buy Bobby losing. Anything. Though maybe bitch-wheelchair!Bobby loses because he's too busy wallowing to play well. *huffs*
WOW, Dean talking to Bobby like a child--go figure.
...I didn't even notice Cas wasn't in this episode until right this minute, halfway through this post at 2 in the morning.
The manwitch wanted to fuck Dean so bad! Dean showed him he was packing and his response was that he would love a tickle? Come on. And then the "I like you" as soon as Sam sits down--hitting on both of the Winchester brothers...he may be a murderous douche, but the guy has taste.
Wow. Great. "Make it 50." The whole bet wasn't stpid enough to begin with, Dean, let's make it a little dumber. No, really, the whole thing just bothers me. We haven't learned our lesson about making deals yet? Aside from the fact that Dean selling his soul for Sam is my favorite thing in the entire series and they are cheapening it with every deal (Olivia, pretty sure I straight up stole your wording there, but I'm owning it). JUST NO.
But OMG. Confident!Dean, meet my exploding vagina.
Now let's talk about Old!Dean for a minute here: I think the casting was fantastic. 1. He was a SEXY OLD MAN. 2. He kind of did look like Jensen, and had crows feet that crinkled in just the right way. 3. This. guy. was. so. good. at. making. Dean. faces. Most notably when the manwitch steals the car and he says "I like that guy!" HE DOES THE CLASSIC DEAN SMILE. AHAHAHA, LOVE.
Sam made a grumpy old men joke! I used to love that movie when I was little (random, I know) so that made my year because I feel like Sam Winchester was as uncool if not uncooler in his childhood, and he totally got psyched when that came on the free cable at the motel and Dean let him watch it.
Oh man, Smarmy!Dean being patronized by chicks! I bet he has never struck out like that in his life. BUT AGAIN, I WAS SO HAPPY WITH HOW PERFECT THE GUY'S DEAN!SMILE WAS.
I was a little put off by how amused Sam was by the situation, even knowing that people die from it, when it hapened to HIS
"It's like Mission Pathetic, watch out." - Oh, Sam <3
I really, really loved the hint of brotherly protectiveness we got from Dean when he talked to Sammy about these deals, though. The first one where the manwitch tries to get him to agree and Dean says "No, Sam." and Sam says "Dean." and it's so THEM. Also later when they're trying to fool the manwitch but before Sam goes back up he says "Don't lose, Sammy." in this really broken up voice that I think old!Dean did great because it was so Jensen. But is it weird that for a split second the first time he said Sammy I thought "Why is Sam letting him call him that?" and then it was like "Oh, right, that's his Deancakes under all that grey."
Jared is a giant. That's all I could think when they were walking out and he was doing the "I have gonorrhea!" dance. And this is because he was standing next to Not!Jensen. See!?! Poor Jensen always taking shit for his size! SPEAKING OF WHICH: HE GAVE SAM THE CLAP. W.T.F?!?!!
"When you get to be our age--" "DEAN, YOU'RE THIRTY." - *ded*
Sam Winchester, your forehead is even bigger than your cock. You have had more attractive episodes. Don't get me wrong, I would still ride that thing all over the continent, but it needs to be said.
So the part where the manwitch lets the old guy win actually really touched my heart a little bit. And I loved Sam's response to it. It was the beginning of what Olivia described as a "most excellent consistent glossy-eyedness, but not drunk glossy-eyed." Good thing we straightened that out, ya'll.
Bobby was being a bully at the grave site! Dean may be able to stand, but he's older than you are, so stop being so insensitive about how achy he is! That is tough physical labor he's doing down there. I mean, I've never desecrated a grave, but I can imagine! Also, Olivia pointed out how long it's been since we did that. I missed it yay much.
SAM WANTS HIS BOYFRIEND BACK. He said so. Or did he say brother? OH YEAH, SAME THING, WHO AM I KIDDING?
Old-married-couple!Bobby-and-Dean maybe be trying to steal Remus and Sirius's thunder, but they're kind of fierce.
Dean has a bucket list.
Sam Winchester breaks my heart always and at all times. But I love him, playing the percentages and trying to be all sneaky and his big, wet eyes and just how desperate he is for his brother to be okay, even if he was acting because he wasn't. *flail kick die*
The manwitch knew. Of course it isn't going to be that easy. ASISUDFGHJHIUGJ.
POOR SAM WAS SO DISTRESSED BY THIS NEWS. HE JUST WANTED TO SAVE HIS BROTHER, GUYS. AND. THEN. HE. DID. BECAUSE THAT WAS SO SAD WHEN HE WENT ALL IN AND DIDN'T WANT TO PLAY ANYMORE AND WAS JUST LIKE "WHERE'S MY BROTHER, WHERE'S MY BROTHER?" SERIOUSLY--DON'T TRY TO DENY IT. CAN'T TOUCH THE BROTHERFUCKING OTP.
WHEN DEAN IS DYING, THE LAST THING HE SAYS IS "SAM". I. CAN. NOT. TAKE. IT.
Teary!Sam: You're so nice for a witch, it's scary.
^^ STOP! REWIND!
Teary!Sam: You brave little witch! You're too precious for this world!
Manwitch says you're a good actor. Manwitch says you use method acting. Ladies and gentlemen, let us acknowledge one of the great tragedies of the 21st century. Sam Winchester is a better actor than Jared Padalecki. *Cues the "post-Apocalypse let's move to Hollywood so you can pursue acting and I can be your P.A. and give you head in your trailer a lot" fic*. And Sam's proud little "Yeah, I got you motherfucker, and I'd like my boyfriend disgustingly hot again, thanks." smile! I will tickle him with a feather one day, such is my love for him.
I thought the whole sitting at the table, spewing disgustingly sappy shit at each other thing was SO cheesy. I liked the characters of the witches and their Love was really sweet and everything, but I wish they hadn't been talking like characters in a fucking romance novel.
JENSEN DANCE AND SMILE AND JUMP UP. OH. MY. GOD. I CANNOT CONTAIN MY LOVE FOR HIM, OR FOR JARED WHO LOOKED SO FUCKABLE IN THE NEXT SCENE, OR FOR THOSE CHARACTERS A MOMENT LONGER.
They wuv eachother. I don't even remember what I wrote this in response to, but I am 198% fucking SURE it's true.
OH HEY, GUYS--WHAT'S THE POINT OF BRINGING UP THE SITTING AT THE KID'S TABLE ISSUES WE ALREADY KNOW SAM HAS IF WE'RE NOT GOING TO USE HIS NINJA SAVING EVERYONE IN THIS EPISODE TO HELP REMEDY IT? I respect your modesty, Sam, and I'm gonna let you finish, but just fucking making you point is the best idea in history.
Sam still has the clap? That's tragic to me. We couldn't undo all of that witch's nasty magic? POOR DEAN! All that comforty sex he's going to need when he's young again...I hope that shot works fucking fast.
Oh, great! Dean Winchester is actually the one having the feelings discussion? Either he really IS getting healthy, or being old CHANGED HIM. It was nicve, whatever, these talks are always more fun when they are implicating incest.
Bobby, you're not useless. You're Oracle. Read a fucking comic book, dude, she was the shit and everyone knew it.
Actually, Bobby, I read a story just last week in which Dean already had really lovely lady parts, so no use trying to avoid it. He wouldn't make inaccurate statements like that if he would just read the fucking recs I send him everynow and again.
There we go. I will be writing stories for those of you who requested tonight and tomorrow. ♥
