Jared could probably do something different with his hair, but he is so damn sexy, he could be bald and still look good.

so, the leviathans left castiel's body in the water?
so wtf is left? where is castiel's vessel? where is castiel?
castiel better not be dead. but dean kept castiel's trench coat.
so,obvs, castiel will be back. and he's listed to appear in ep 7 on imdb. lol
I'm pretty sure that Castiel isn't dead. At least, we'll be seeing his vessel again. The two leviathans mentioned a boss during their meeting at the park. My guess is the big bad is still riding shotgun in Jimmy's body. Perhaps he's even hijacked Castiel's angelic power (if Cas is still living, that is).
I really liked the first 3 seasons but after that it started to get dull so i haven't kept up with it haha.
I am getting a serious sinking feeling that the "boss" is the one playing patty cake with Sam's brain.
He is, the Devil, after all.....
I think that he was meant to get Sam out of Bobby's house, Sam and Dean are meant to be at that hospital, yada yada...
And dammit all to hell (no pun intended) that we get no Cas (or Jimmy, or hell, Misha!) for 5 more episodes.
This episode was off the hook!!! Love every inch of it
Great episode, basically the same kill the demons storyline like every year but still wonderfully done.
Another great episode. Dean was a jerk at the end though ; (
Does Sam always have to fall for some kinda monster bitch? Geez. Dean did the right thing offing her. But he shoulda killed the kid as well.
James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter woooo!
I gotta say. about time Supernatural got a bigger budget, or CG got cheaper. I am noticing they are using a lot more effects than they usually do.
And I must say, I love everytime Death is in a episode. He is just so...AWESOME.
Did Anyne Catch Dean Dream Of Castiel In The River
Its So Obvious They Are Boyfriends Lol
^ I bet a lot of fangirls orgasmed over that.
Dean's dream was about everything he feels responsible for. It was not a wet dream about all the things he wants to fuck. He saw Castiel, Sam and Amy. His demons. Not his fuck buddies.
I liked seeing James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter last week. They were really good. But odd as a couple.
This week's duplicate Sam and Dean episode looks like it's going to be fun.
Maybe they'll all have a 4-way fuck session.
^Maybe they will. The episode is title Slash Fiction after all.
Loved, loved, loved seeing James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter last week! I miss Buffy!
I can see why Sam cared about her. She was presented as a very sympathetic character.
Honestly, this kind of thing is why I sometimes feel like SPN fandom is excessively critical when it comes to any female character that appears on this show, particularly anyone that the guys show a romantic/sexual interest in. Sheesh.
But I agree that Dean did the right thing.
I didnt mean to offend. But he never falls for a normal woman. It's always a lady who is a monster/demon. just sayin
^ lol, Yeah. I think it's their not-so-subtle way of reminding us that he feels like a "freak" so he is drawn to women who can relate to him on that level. Or ones who won't at least be freaked out by him. Kinda sad, tbh.
I thought the head leviathan Dick was very sexy. I loved his conversation with Crowley. "Don't roofie me and call it romance"
I think Crowley's rejection by Dick (very clever by the writers, for so many reasons, to call him Dick) is going to have him team up with the Winchesters. He's one of those work all angles so it suits him demons. And he's gonna be very determined to beat that Dick now
I was falling behind on the episodes but I'm all caught up now. I haven't been too excited about SPN lately.
Must admit, I'm bored by the Leviathans thus far. With the introduction of Dick (Patrick Bateman/American Psycho vibes much?), maybe things will start to get more interesting.
The lack of Castiel(is he ever coming back, I'm sad) and Crowley is not helping, tbh.
James Patrick Stuart(Dick) is aging nicely!!! Used to sweat the hell outta that guy back in the late 80's/early 90's when he was All My Children's "Will"--even though Will was a complete bastard!!!
^ Yeah, "kind of stale" is right.
The shitty thing is that we know Castiel/Misha Collins will be back in some capacity because the show runner has said as much. But there is a lot of conflicting information about when he'll be back. Either way, it looks like it won't be any time soon. Like late this season or next season if there is a S8.
For me, Castiel became a huge part of why I tune in. Him, and the other angels and Crowley.
Just going back to having the brothers doing their own thing and bickering like we're back in S1 isn't holding my interest very much. Which sucks because apparently this season is meant to be focused on them. And the Big Bad isn't living up to my expectations.
Buffy reference last episode <3
I recently read a spoiler on eonline.com that I found interesting:
Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)
While Bobby is struggling to hold on to life, he will be in purgatory where he will run into Rufus.
That does sound interesting. Been awhile since I've been excited about something other than drooling over Jared's body for an hour.
Tonight's episode was the most genuine emotion the series has been able to capture in years. Jim Beaver did an amazing job and it goes to reassure me that if the writer's could figure new ground to go over they're still capable of making compelling moments. I just wish they'd stop putting Sam and Dean through the same emotional loops.
I dunno. I found it all just a tad too sappy with the "I adopted 2 boys" business. And wtf? Dick is just sitting outside the hospital doing nothing?
And I like Bobby but I hope he's really dead and for good. Bobby surviving everything has gotten beyond ridiculous.
Of course the boys need to survive it all b/c they are the show. I just love Jared and Jensen together. You can tell they genuinely love each other. It's gonna be so weird when the show ends and they are gonna have to do projects w/o each other.
Well the stuff between him and the kids is a little forced. They overstate it and it's a growing problem since season 5. Number one rule of film/tv is show don't tell. This program in particular used to be really good at showing "macho" non-verbal emotion in a subtle way but it's lost that quality. Every now and then Dean would break down and have an emotional monologue which would make sense because for half a season you watched things fester.
Now it's WAY too much talking. Way to much 'you're like a father' 'you're like a brother' etc etc. They gradually and substantial build and interesting Cas/Dean dynamic over two seasons and then they just tried to act like Sam was on the same level at the "end" of Cas's run by throwing too much dialogue about it in. It's a running problem and I dont' think it'll be fixed any time soon. Especially with Kripke paying more attention to side projects. This is clearly Sera Gambles doing and it all just drips of fan fictionesque blah. This is one show that got way too caught up in it's fan base. For a while circa seasons' 2-4 it would throw in a wing or make a joke. THe meta episodes are some of the best. But by the time 6 rolled around it had fully handed itself over to its crazed fandom and it's not to the benefit of the material at all.
All that being said the stuff with Bobby dealing with his own demons was gold, especially compared to what we'd been given lately. That scene where he was fighting with his wife was fantastic.
Yea I agree the stuff with Bobby and his wife was great. I didnt know exactly what you meant at first.
And the Cas stuff was weird. He and Dean had a special connection that definitely didnt include Sam. In a way Dean "cheated" on Sam with Cas. There was always tension btwn Cas/Sam. Then Sam is calling him "like a brother"?
But now I think about it, season 6 was a big clusterfuck. LOL. There must have been 50 writers who had no clue what the others were doing. Who could forget the "oh-so-powerful, defeated-2-episodes-after-she-appeared" Mother of All?
And two or three episodes in it became clear that none of those writers had a grander sense of the boys "story." It became more "LOOK we're being mysterious" instead of actually being mysterious by NOT trying look mysterious (the way the show rather deftly handled Ruby in it's heyday). It all felt like Sera Gamble sent the writers on summer break with an assignment to each come up wiht three ideas of how the series could continue and then they executed all of them at once. It was awful. None of it made sense. They destroyed the characters and wipes out five years of consistent specifically motivated personalities.
I was listening to an interview once where Eric Kripke banned umbrellas from the set because he felt Sam and Dean would be too rough and tumble for umbrellas... that's absurd! But it tells me one thing that made me very at ease. He KNEW his characters. He knew their nuances their reactions. Everything they did they did because THEY would do them not because it would help the writers get to a point in the story that they think is 'cool' or is necessary but was difficult to introduce. Nothing was forced. Characters lived and breathed and acted and died as who they were and so they felt like peopel and we empathized with them as people.
I also don't think we've seen the end to Cas. They got rid of him way too dismissively.
I cried like a baby while watching this episode :'( I so wish there would be a way to get Bobby back! Can't imagine the show without him! I felt like my soul cracked there a little when i saw this scene, and when i saw his speach to his dad: "I adopted 2 boys and the grew up great! They grew up heroes! So go to hell!!"
I am still behind on the latest episode but I just saw this on Twitter:
It's true. I'm going to be back on the reality show about the two brothers who drive around testing out seedy motels. Any questions?
But ultimately I don't believe that their connection, their synergy is rooted in romantic love or lust or a crush. etc
Would it be an interesting angle to explore? Well, that's what I have fanfic for but I'm not too keen on the idea of it being addressed on the show.
But "not necessarily as fallen angel Castiel" according to the spokesperson.
But I think on a more SERIOUS level it could have opened up a ton of story avenues for the characters and explored fairly classical character acrhetypes in a new context. I mean think about it.... how would Cas an angel already in rebellion from heaven but never wavering in his faith in God grapple with the realization that he had "sinful" desires? How would he react when faced to admit to himself those desires are ultimately fruitless? That the only emotion he has ever felt, a loyalty and care that was so deeply rooted that he turned his back on his whole life turned out to be part and parcel of the great pain of rejection and unrequited desire? What does that character do with that? He doesn't HAVE emotions other than those that bound him humans a basic empathy which has grown with bits and pieces of anger or hurt but such things weren't cracked open and explored fully or explicitly. How does he now interact with Dean, this leader figure he has followed tirelessly? Does he still sacrifice himself for him? Does he allow himself to be bossed around because he believes in the cause or does he write that up to being part of his failed crush.
And how does it affect Dean? The way he interacts with Cas? The way he used to pour his emotions out to him. Is he still as raw? Is he hesitant or afraid? Would he still pressure him and manipulate him? Why? Kneejerk homophobia or genuine concern that such things would play up a dynamic that cuts his friend deeper than he realized? How does a man who's defined himself through his masculinity deal with the blindside that his closest male friend loves him?
It could've actually been a really interesting, intelligent, original dynamic. It could've been thought provoking, full of emotion, and fraught with harsh lose/lose situations. But they decided to just giggle and basically make coded middle school dick jokes.... which is a shame. Not that I expected primetime network television to explore the implications of such a dynamic. Especially not on a show that already has so little female presence. But it's a shame they tried to retroactively rewrite history and bulldozed the ample set up they accidentally gave themselves.
IIRC, the only time we've seen him try to act sexual = accidentally watching porn and kissing the demon Meg (and even then he was only mimicking the actions he'd seen in the porn and looked utterly confused). I mean he did get an erection but there seemed to be a disconnect. I think he's capable of exploring that side of himself (like Anna) but it's not something he's capable of understanding at this point. And I don't think Dean would be the catalyst (for his developing sexual desire) since he has never had that effect on Castiel.
Dean on the other hand is portrayed as a womanizer who without fail laughs off situations/comments that can be construed as homoerotic even in the slightest sense of the word.
I totally agree that it is an interesting concept. BUT. It would take some serious suspension of disbelief for them to explore the possibility of these two being attracted to each other (in that sense) on the show. I'd feel like they're just retconning the shit out of these characters/their relationship. Whereas in fanfic it's just fun, disposable stuff that won't really interfere with the way I've come to understand the show and it's characters.
Unlike you, I just don't think there is much of a "set up" to go on in the canon that would suggest that their bond is anything more than platonic. Perhaps if it were on a different network and their relationship was handled differently from the get-go, I'd be more open to it.
Well the time for this has passed. This is somethign they'd need to pull the trigger on circa season 5 but I don't think it would be at all odd for Cas who at the time was exploring what it meant to have 'emotions' and be human to wonder about the depths of his feelings for Dean. They were obviously deeper than for any person he'd ever encountered and traditionally such a bond as portrayed as non platonic love. So I think it would've personally been on par for him to be discovering such attractions.
Also I never really viewed him as "non-sexual." They always seemed to shoehorn the subject of sex in around him where it need not be like they're bringing attention to his ability to be a sexual being. Also I never would imagine any story would show Dean reciprocating the emotion. To ring true to the characters and the universe it would be a story about Castiel loving him and realizing the full spectrum of 'humanity' and 'emotion' and those traits he fought so valiantly for and to realize there's a downside to love.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that exploring the possibility of Cas loving Dean doesn't have to be "fan fictiony." It could be serious, and insightful, and intelligently even artfully done in a painfully emotional way but they choose to make it fan fictiony by winking at the tension instead of flat out ignoring it or acknowledging it.
