Quick thoughts on 5.03 below the cut...



I was expecting not to like this episode much, because I did not sign on for "The Dean and Cas Show". But I was pleasantly surprised:
  • The opening sequence was gorgeous. Like the boys are still connected, even though they're hundreds of miles apart and doing completely separate things.
  • Bobby rocks. Perfect delivery by Jim Beaver, too. "*pause* Oh, wait. It's you!"
  • Castiel was really cute in his awkwardness. And despite his lack of awareness of human norms, he does seem to have picked up some of Dean's ways of speaking without any difficulty.  *snort*
  • Oh, Dean. What was that you said early in the episode about how humans lie when they really want something? And then saying all that stuff about how you were happier without Sam? Uh huh. *hands over pencil to connect the dots*
  • If you don't think the season finale is going to be Michael-in-Dean going up against Lucifer-in-Sam, raise your hand.  (Unless it's going to happen earlier.)  The one thing I want to know is, who's going to be God's vessel? Bobby?
  • If somebody can't come up with a better reason than, "It had to be you," I'm going to be severely disappointed.  Other than that, the final scene was one of the creepiest this show has ever had.  And that's saying a lot.
Of course, what made me the most excited is that I got Kripke'd not just once by this ep (I'm hardly the only one to have written about Sam being Lucifer's chosen vessel), but twice, with the hunters taking someone hostage to try and force Sam to spill the truth and to use his demon powers.   Go me!

Well, I've been telling you for ages that you rock. :) Well done on the double-Kripke!

Aw, you're too kind. Seriously. I blame it on too many hours spent watching episodes back-to-back so that the SPN 'verse is burned into my brain...

I could say that myself. BTW, I agree about the connection between the boys even though they were far apart. Sort of reminded me of In the Beginning where, although Sam was physically missing from almost the entire episode (bar a few seconds), his presence permeated everything Dean did.

And they couldn't have chosen better with the music. The Lynyrd Skynyrd piece was perfect.

Agreed on the music. And although they're usually great with the episode titles, this one was even better than normal. Because at first it looks like they're free to be separate people...then we realize that neither Dean nor Sam really are free to be Dean and Sam, or at least it's going to be a hard fight for them both. :(
