Rewatching Season 6 Episode 16 - damn, I miss Rufus and Bobby! The CW definitely missed  a trick not making those two their spin off show. Just think, we could have had Rufus and Bobby sassing each other on hunts while Jody and Donna did the same but different - it would have been kickass and hilarious, and the Winchesters could have dropped in occasionally so that Bobby could call them idjits and Jody and Donna could talk about them taking their shirts off. Awesome!

I have a problem from now onwards really - just not the same enthusiasm for each season as a whole - mainly because I still don't think the showrunners/writers had a real plan for each season as a whole from here on in.

The French Mistake

 

Our boys have come a long way from being victims of fate and destiny.  Yes, they always made their own choices and fought for free will, but this episode showed that the fight was something that gives their lives true meaning and that it was something they can now embrace without hesitating.  And I LOVE it!!  I will not be brought down from the high of this one by any negative vibes because this was wonderful in so many ways – and the funny, oh gawd, the funny!!!


And this was interesting because they were taking the mickey out of so many different things at once - stardom and celebrity, the show and its low ratings but highly dedicated fanbase, themselves across the board - set designers, make-up extras, directors, Sera(!!).  I bet there were hundreds on in-jokes I am never going to notice because I don't work in the industry (or on SPN, sadly…), but there were plenty of jokes I did get and had me roaring with laughter.

Like - at the start, the exchange between the director and the blonde guy about cutting out the heart to heart scene and taking the backlash of hate mail from the fans; Dean's reaction to Jensen's pretty boy make-up "I'm a painted whore!"; the big screen in Jensen's trailer playing big close up shots of Jensen implying a massive ego; Jensen being portrayed as a possible spendthrift (the maxed out credit card); Gen having to stand on her tippy tippy toes to reach Jared and the way they filmed that bit so she looked extra tiny next to both of them; Jared’s reactions in the scenes with Gen; the excruciating acting scene (OMG I actually found myself covering my eyes at its sheer delightful awfulness!!)

And Misha - my god he was brilliant.  That first scene with the boys was incredible - you could see instantly that this was Misha playing Cas, not Cas himself, and how on earth did he do that???  The tweeting was hilarious! Then - it was so cleverly shot and written and acted to move us from laughing at  Misha being comically OTT terrified, to his horribly brutal murder (they killed Misha!! WTH??).

 

The last scenes packed in a lot of drama – if I was to nit pick, I’d say it was a bit rushed at the end, and have to admit that the wing scene with Cas was not as stunning an effect as the first time we saw those wings, but that would be churlish of me, given that I really, really enjoyed this episode so much.

 

I might even watch it again right now….

I was so tense watching that episode but I did have a laugh when Dean was called an intrepid detective because this is what came to mind...
Maybe I will post some more rational serious thoughts on the rest of the episode later...
In the meantime here's a very bad manip just for fun

Oh Crikey!  And further…..


Show, show, where are you taking us I wonder?  

 
I'm not complaining, I am just concerned that there are very few options remaining for our boys, and I don't like any of the ideas that I am coming up with!  So I am hoping Sera & co have better imaginations than me and have a way out of this that won't end up where I fear we are going....

 

1.      Sam walks away and refuses to let anyone make any further efforts to get his soul back.  Somehow, the brothers work together and create a new relationship without it.  Or they don't - but in which case there would definitely be no Season 7 so....

2.     Dean spends part of the rest of the season trying to get Sam’s soul back on his own (or with Cas and Bobby helping).  Then the remainder dealing with the (probably) drastic consequences for Sam if he succeeds.  Somehow they manage to heal his soul (even though Cas says he can’t do it – so maybe they bring in the big guns again and God shows up…).  Or they don't and we (and Dean) are left to cope with Damaged!Sam....

3.     They get Sam back on the Soulquest team, but when he gets his soul back the only way to heal him is for him to die so his soul can go to heaven (which it surely would, given the nature of his sacrifice).

I'm sure there are loads of other permutations but those were the ones that sprang to mind for me.

It was no surprise that Crowley was lying about having access to Sam’s soul, not once they finally confirmed that the soul is still trapped in the Cage with Lucifer and Michael.  Although Granddad Campbell said Crowley was responsible for returning both himself and Sam to life, I still don’t think a demon (even upgraded to King of Hell, whatever that means) would have been powerful enough to do that kind of resurrection.  And if Crowley did return the two of them, why leave Sam’s soul behind?  It doesn’t make sense.  He didn’t need it as leverage because he had Grandpa C on the hook already with his offer to bring Mary back, and it doesn’t appear that Sam started missing it until he hooked back up with Dean.

Unless it was Crowley, and Sam's soul got left behind precisely because he didn't have enough juice - but then I'm still struggling as to why he'd want Sam for anything...

 

And if it was Crowley, what have they gone and done by burning him up!!??  What a waste of a lovely snarky villain!!  Cripes.

 

Bugger.  A first watch has clearly left me with more questions than answers….

God I love this show.
