Am soooo behind... must not let myself be distracted by online shoppingggg... *pulls self together*

Ep. 8 Rock and a Hard Place
[Spoiler (click to open)]Not a bad ep.. Wasn't hard to figure out who the bad 'guy' was; as soon as you see a supporting character and the actor is known and recognizable compared to the others, yep, pretty good bet that he/she did it. But I digress...
Was great to see Kim Rhodes as I really like Sheriff Mills as a strong female character that's not trying to get into one of the boys' pants or vice versa (still miss Ellen :( ). Loved Dean going all Alpha on the dude in the fallout shelter and managing to handily find a way out without Sam or anyone else outside to help him, though, for a professional con-man and liar, I was rather disappointed that he couldn't pull off the going undercover part of the church group. I mean, really, the guy pretends to be somebody else all the time, he should have been able to fool a church group without too much trouble.
And Zeke... pretty clear now that he's definitely up to something! Again, a Goddess touches Sam and finds out something is wrong (just like in s. 6 - really, writers, quit with the re-hashing!). You'd think that by now Zeke would have fixed something, especially as he said that he wouldn't be in Sam for much longer.
Did really like the acting that Jared pulled off when he went from Sam to Zeke to Sam, and Dean looked just so wrecked ♥


Ep. 7 Bad Boys
A little disappointing. While I love that it was Dean centric, there were just too many things that bothered me:
[Spoiler (click to open)]- young Dean neither really looked like Dean, nor did he look 16. A dead-ringer for young John, but Dean... not so much

-Dean didn't have his first kiss until he was 16?!! That doesn't seem right as even Sam was younger than that for his
- No self-respecting 12 yr. old would hang out the car window and play with an airplane, plus Sam looked too young to be 12
- Sonny. This guy was Dean's mentor, and apparently Dean kept in contact with him through all the years, but he just seems to come out of nowhere
- Robin. What sort of person holds a grudge against somebody for being pulled away from going to a dance by his family... over fifteen years ago!
- The CAS that should have been there... Let's see the father says to 'let his son rot', then disappears and they can't get in touch with him, the child shows signs of possible abuse and was arrested for stealing food basics, and THEY JUST LET HIM TAKE HIM AWAY NO QUESTIONS ASKED!!!! Sorry.... that just boggles my mind...
- the lawnmower scene... *shudders*

On the plus side, Timmy was cute, there was lots of Dean, and Sam said "Thank-you"

So, overall, not one of my favourite eps.


P.S. Went to see Thor: The Dark World and it is fantastic! :)

Yep, that guy's not curing Sam, he's feeding off him. Definitely came across as more threatening this time, didn't he?

"It won't be long now, Dean. I'm almost up to my full strength and when I'm done sucking his soul dry I'll discard the bag of broken glass that is your brother like a used kleenex and go find a fresh, undamaged vessel. Perhaps that conveniently humanized former angel friend of yours."

I read that in the original script Dean was supposed to be 14, which would have been a tiny bit more believable in some respects, but the young actor didn't look 14 on camera (in fact, he's 18, so that's not surprising) so they changed it. But no, I didn't find anything about the episode believable really, except that young guy's performance. He really did his research on how to play Dean. Kudos to him.

Yeah the Thor sequel was great. Much better than the original IMO.

Wow! That kid was 18?! I thought that he barely even passed for 16! He did do a very good job though.
They seem to have no problem finding young Sams who at least look like older Sam, I wonder why they can't seem to find young Deans?

Zeke certainly does seem to have dropped the sincerity and 'trust me' and gone with the 'don't tell Sam or else'.
And if only Zeke would say that out loud - priceless :)

Gotta ask, where are Dean's famous instincts? o_O

It's weird, I may be reading it completely wrong, but it seems to me that Dean isn't too worried about Sam, but maybe more that he feels guilty about not telling him, which implies that he trusts the angel. So, Dean's instincts: 0 Angel likely to screw him (and Sam) over: 1

Nope, that's the way it comes across to me, too. Zeke practically threatens him and he doesn't even notice. Sheesh.

Maybe it's bad writing?

Whoa. No, I've only just seen the one you're talking about. Looks interesting! No I was talking about this:

Writers practically admitting they're embarrassed about the contrived plotline? o_O

I missed that other sneak peek! Don't have great faith in the writers what with the uneven quality of their scripts, sometimes inconsistent storylines and repetition/re-hashing of plot points but just saw tonight's ep. and... it's kind of just... wow... I'm trying to decide still if I liked it or hated it (not because I thought it was bad), and, really, I think it's kinda both... must ponder further....

Just making the mistake of reading J2 live tweets. Getting major spoilers but couldn't resist when Jared revealed Jensen would be joining him. Double jeopardy!
