Supernatural report

Thoughts on 5.06 below the cut:





  • The boys are back! This so had the feel of an ep from S1 or S2, with the banter and the splitting up to work on different parts of the case, and it was great.
  • Dean's hairy palm had me laughing well into the commercial break. I'd forgotten about the whoopee cushion by the time it made its reappearance, and while it might not have been the best point in the conversation for it to happen, Castiel's deadpan "it wasn't me" had me in hysterics.
  • Of course, then there were the gut-wrenching moments like Castiel's "You. Didn't." that literally made me gasp out loud. Ouch.
  • I'm not sure what I think about the adorable-yet-mind-blowingly-powerful little kid as part of the mythology, but he reminds me so much of the kid in Guy Gavriel Kay's "The Darkest Road": child of a human woman raped by a demon, a true wildcard in whose hands rests the fateful decision of choosing Dark or Light for himself and thus the whole world. Coincidence or established legend that Kripke's drawing from?
  • I see great potential for stories where Dean and Sam travel to Australia to look for Jesse... ;)

Indeed! There's a lot of dislike of this episode going around, and in general I am getting really tired of the Sam haters. :(

OMG Dean's hairy palm! I loved that! Made me laugh so hard too.
I thought the farting went on a little long, but it was funny.

I'm not too sure what to think about the kid either. I like Sam being the anti-Christ, dammit! And the fact that a kid that powerful could basically do anything, set everything straight or bring hell on earth with just his will, it could be sort of anti-climactic/pointless/stupid.

And I'm liking Castiel less and less with every new ep. Is that just me?

And if you find those stories, let me know! I would love to read them.

I know, fic writers everywhere went, "Gosh darn it!" I agree that the sheer power of this kid is a little too much. Although, ooh, what if he got to be so powerful that the only one who could overcome him would be Michael or Lucifer...might that overcome Dean's and/or Sam's stubbornness?

Castiel's been a jerk to Sam pretty much the whole time, so I don't know if it's getting worse, although I did think the "You didn't" accusation was pretty appropriate.
