Leylin Vixen's Quick Draw SPN Roundup - There's Something About Mary




There's Something About Mary



Opening words

Well, that just happened. If I am being truthful loosing Eileen hurt pretty badly for me and I have hard time to focus my thoughts because of that. Still I will try to give my plusses and minuses with an open mind but at least you understand why this roundup might be short. My mind went completely blank after that opening scene and I have not recovered. It has been a wild ride also in the fandom the week after so that has not helped me at all. It only says that I really cared about Eileen as a character like I did with Charlie. Luckily the good buzz for the last two episodes has helped a bit but Eileen will be remembered, always!

Now, let’s get on with the show…

Story

We start the episode with Eileen running in the forest and she is escaping something. She shoots at the invisible monster and then she is brutally killed. It is a hellhound and Ketch is controlling it with a whistle. Meanwhile the guys check out Mary’s hotel room and she is not there. Dean calls Ketch and he lies to them. Jody calls Sam and informs him Eileen has been killed. Other hunters have been too. They worry about their mom as they head out and drive to the morgue and to Eileen’s body. It is not pretty. In hell Crowley is frustrated that his demons have not found the Nephilim. 


The story moves to Mary. She seems to be alright and visiting a hunter friend Rick she then kills. Except she wakes up and it seems it was just a dream. Toni comes into her holding cell and Mary remembers that she was tortured and drugged. BMOL seems to be brainwashing her. Toni hits her and leaves. Then she notices the hand wound and stitches that she got in the dream. She realises that it was not a dream. Crowley visits Dr. Hess and now we know where Ketch got the hellhound. Crowley and BMOL have a deal and we don’t know what it includes. Crowley returns to hell to Lucifer who has found out the polarity is shifting and he is actually controlling Crowley. Sam calls Crowley who pretends he knows nothing about the hellhound.    

Mary is at breaking point and she relives over and over how she killed Rick. Toni, Hess and Ketch watch the show and they have a poking at each other match going on. It seems Ketch and Toni are in a battle to get Mick's position and Hess is worried about Ketch’s feelings towards Mary.

On their way back to the bunker Sam and Dean stop by the PO box and they find Eileen’s letter. I guess she didn’t trust emails or phones anymore… She warns them about the BMOL and that they bugged her place. The boys head home and search the bunker for the bug. This was a very cool scene! They find the bug and then they lay a trap for the BMOL by letting them hear what they want to hear.


Toni and Ketch have another pissing match beside the hellhound and then Ketch goes to see Mary. She is broken and pleading to Ketch to help her. She only had her own will and now it is going away. She has truly lost everything she knew. She goes to hug Ketch that does seem to care for her. It was a trick though as she grabs his gun and tries to shoot herself. Ketch stops her and then Mary pleads for him to kill her. Ketch refuses and says it will all get better soon. Sam Smith was phenomenal in this scene.

Sam and Dean have laid their trap at an abandoned warehouse where a BMOL hit team moves in. Toni is also waiting nearby in her car. The hit squad is locked in and the Winchesters tag team capture Toni outside. Meanwhile Lucifer plays with Crowley in his “palace”. The boys and Toni are heading back to the bunker and she taunts them from the back of the car. Neither are thrilled about her humour. Meanwhile Lucifer continues to play with Crowley. He tosses him around and shows his wings. Crowley tries to get out of the situation but he fails. Lucifer wounds him and then “kills” him with the angel blade. And the body does nothing which should have been a clue to Lucifer.

Back at the bunker the trio is ambushed by Ketch and in some great fight choreography they get the upper hand. Toni is still held captive by Sam. Things change though because Mary enters the scene and she seems to be brainwashed. They take off and leave Sam, Dean and Toni to die inside the bunker that is now a death trap running out of water and air. In Crowley’s palace his body is taken a way and a rat is following it. Mary is like a robot in the car with Ketch and Lucifer goes to the top of the world and he utters the word: “Son.”      





















Characters

One thing that occurred to me in this episode was that how Mary’s story mirrored everything that has happened in all the years to Sam and Dean. Sam Smith acted perfectly to what Mary Winchester was going through. She has not been the perfect mother everyone wanted her to be. She is flawed and she has lost almost all that she remembered after she died. She is a stranger in a strange land. Who she is and what she has done is not far from her boys. If you examine her from this point of view she should have the same rules as Sam and Dean as we forgive them if they make mistakes. We are angry and sad when they have lost everything, almost everyone they have cared or loved. So why not Mary? 


She has gone through worse. For her everyone she knew REALLY has died. Her young boys died to her (not literally but figuratively speaking) and even if they are alive and older, those young ones died and were taken from her. They were gone in a split second. Only thing that she had left was her own mind and will, and the BMOL took that away too. Her sons have also experienced that and it is terrible. She is totally broken. The boys also worked for good guys that turned out to be bad (Angels). And they were manipulated to release Lucifer. Mary even got a cut to her hand that told her the truth like Sam did when his wall broke. Both had stitches there and the pain made them see reality. In a way Mary has gone through everything her boys have but just in a shorter time span. And like her boys I feel for her. I hope the boys get her back.

Eileen Leahy, you were great and you fought bravely against an enemy that you could not see. I can only imagine how terrified and alone you felt. Even with the odds you put up a fight and I hope when all is said and done you will have your honorary hunters’ funeral. Shoshannah did great job with Eileen and it is a great feat to get all the fans to love her so that we are sad/angry/devastated that she  was killed. Everyone that I knew wished she would be alive again.


Even if I was not fond of their dance, Crowley and Lucifer had their own power battle which Crowley seemed to loose. Both Marks are great at doing what they do. Like the demons and the BMOL, the demons were no interest for me and the BMOL were just irritating which is what I think was the point. Mr. Ketch is the one that interests me the most from them. They make my blood boil but not in a love to hate way.    

Here is the full list of characters:

Jared Padalecki - Sam Winchester
Jensen Ackles - Dean Winchester
Mark Sheppard - Crowley
Mark Pellegrino - Lucifer
Samantha Smith - Mary Winchester

David Haydn-Jones - Arthur Ketch
Elizabeth Blackmore - Lady Toni Bevell
Gillian Barber - Dr. Hess
Shoshannah Stern - Eileen Leahy
Andrew McNee - Rick
Alex Barima - Lucifer's Demon
Ian Edwards - Demon
Serge Jaswal - Tech #1
Chelsea Gill - Paige



















Set design


Got to hand it to you, I feel like my writing is lackluster  for this episode in all areas, because there was not much to grab hold to. With the sets it's the same case. Mostly we have the same as we have had many times, the bunker, BMOL HQ, Crowley's dungeon to name a few. BMOL jail with the lights that form crosses was a pretty good addition though. And the new ones we got were not looked at that much like the morgue. 


The ones we got to look at the most was Mary's motel room that looked pretty great. The moss green and wooden colours and the birch trees on the wall paper and on the shower curtain. I really liked the old looking stone wallpaper/wall at the back end of the room. Rick's flat was simple and homey. Pretty normal looking for a hunters' digs. Some vintage colours, old design and dust.


















Props


We saw the weapon room of the BMOL in the episode and it had a lot of stuff in it. Even the hellhound cage where the hound that killed Eileen was held. But still only prop that really stuck out in my eyes was the hellhound whistle. Did they get it from Crowley at the same time they got the hellhound? I guess it works against all hounds because originally Crowley and was it Lilith were the only ones that could control those beasts and not mere demons. Too bad the boys don't have those whistles to use against them.


















Music

No songs in this week so I need to improvise. If I think of this episode one song popped up in my mind so I will use a part of it for this. The song is deeply emotional so it fits. The song I chose was Hurt by Johnny Cash.  

"[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way "

Here is the short +/- rundown for There's Something About Mary

+ Eileen Leahy
+ Eileen warned Sam and Dean
+ Sam and Dean trick the BMOL
+ The bunker search scene
+ The bunker fight scene, boys being badass
+ Dean’s slide to catch Ketch

- Eileen Leahy is murdered by Ketch & a hellhound in a grotesque manner
- Mary is tortured and brainwashed
- Crowley WORKS with the BMOL
- Mary killed a fellow hunter
- Crowley is “killed” (I saw that rat, show!)
- Mary tries to kill herself
- Toni Bevell (Me no likey)
- Mary traps the boys in the bunker
- Dr. Hess
- Lucifer is free
- The music in this episode seemed off
- Crowley’s control spell did what now? :o

-/+ Oh God…

Supernatural Think Tank - Anna's Thoughts on 12x22 "Who We Are"



Winchesters
Family
Courage
Loyalty
Love
Brothers
Leaders
Heroes

I just wanted to start by saying that this is the most bromentic episode that we've had the pleasure of watching for I'd say quite some time. Now don't get me wrong, we've had our broments during this season and they've been good ones.  This episode, however, has been an emotional buffet of sheer goodness, just one brother moment after another and I was so emotionally satiated, that I believe this joy will last the entire duration of Hellatus, which has officially just begun.😬  My heartfelt thanks and appreciation goes out to Robert Berens for providing me with more smiles than a face has a right to display.😍 

Supernatural continued where we had left off last week.  Sam and Dean trapped in the bunker, with the air supply running out.  Just another day in the life of a Winchester. The entire scene of them trapped in the bunker was incredibly intense.  It was beautifully shot and despite the actual terror of the situation at hand, as I watched the boys together in the bunker, it felt cosy and comfortable.   I know, what the hell am I talking about? !🤔     I know the bunker doesn't seem all that homey,, with it's dungeon and shooting range and giant computer room and endless hallways,  but this is where Sam and Dean live and according to Ketch,  this is where they were meant to die.  I am likely among the very first to cheer and be relieved that this wasn't the case, and hopefully never will be, but despite the life threatening situation these boys were placed in,  I felt as though Sam and Dean brought a level of "home" to it.🏡  I guess it's because, the way I interpret it,  home isn't a "place" for the boys,  for Sam and Dean, they are each others home and this episode really made this aspect shine through, more than any other episode this season.  We were given such amazing displays of love between the boys  during this episode.  It was sheer bliss to be a witness to all of it.  Sam and Dean's indestructible brother bond, their inspirational love for each other and the indisputable  fact that despite everyone who's ever been a part of their lives, it's only always been each other that they could truly count on was first and foremost in this episode.     It really was a tribute to the fans who have invested their hearts and soul loving and caring about these boys, as they do each other.  Gobsmacked is a word I think best describes how I felt when this episode ended.  What a truly great feeling it was. 💞💥  Can I just reiterate how much  I love Smart Sam.  I was really impressed with his ability to remain level headed and take a logical approach to figure a way out of their life threatening predicament.   The spell they managed to find and jerry rig to suit their needs was brilliant and the fact that Ketch booby trapped the bunker in such a way that magic wouldn't work clearly insinuates that Ketch is totally aware of how clever the Winchesters truly are.  When that didn't work, I really loved how Dean  acknowledged the "brains" aspect of the plan, while at the same time deciding that it was time to bring in the brawn.  Just a perfect example of how well the boys complement each other.   Dean went all old school and just decided it was best to go with muscle.  Thank you Dean Winchester for giving us a reason for you and Sam to wear t-shirts.  Just because you're in a dire situation, doesn't mean you can't look good trying to get out of it. 💪😍   When that didn't work, we got our first special broment of the episode. 💜 Sam and Dean talking about how they imagined they would go out is very much a shout out to the conversations that Jared and Jensen have had  when asked this question at conventions.  I just adored how this conversation and their idea to go out in a blaze of glory led to Dean remembering his awesome toy🔫..No not that one.😝  that he had in the trunk of Baby.  On a side note,  although we didn't see much of her, she did play her part in helping her boys.  I'm not saying I'm surprised by the use of the grenade launcher, I had theorised that Dean would be using it to get out of the bunker, still, the knowing didn't make the entire scene any less fantastic.  Kudos to Mr. Berens for giving us a nice Die Hard moment. When Sam went searching for Dean, his air running out and the panic of not knowing where Dean was, I just wanted to reach out and hug him.   Then the lights begin to flicker and the air returns and that look on Sam's face when he saw his brother at the top of the stairs, utter those words of love that we were all so happy to hear ..."hey lunatic".  My heart just burst of joy.  There was literally bits of joy all over the carpet, quite the mess to clean up. What an awesome broment number two.  I was bombarded with brotherly love and it was only the first 15 minutes of the episode.   I would just like to add that as dire as the situation was and them being in deep💩 , I would like to note how much I appreciated the laugh when Dean wanted to kill Toni so they could conserve air.  Her telling Dean that she was a shallow breather just rang funny to me. I kind of had the feeling she was lying to save her ass when she told Dean she was the only one who can cure Mary, but it was a chance they had to take.  She got hers in the end though, karma can certainly be a bitch.

It was so great to see Jody alive and kicking ass and surviving yet another season of Supernatural.  I love her relationship with Sam and Dean.  Though she's not that much older than they are, she has always seen them and treated them as if they were her children, not unlike the way Bobby had.  Sam and Dean were the children Bobby always feared to have and for Jody, well they came at a time when she had just lost her child.  Sam saved her from having to kill her zombie son, after just witnessing him kill her husband.  There was a special bond that formed between them that day and it continues through the series.  Even Mary recognised the bond that Jody shares with her children. She recognised it all the way back in The Celebration of Asa Fox.  Kind of wonder if Mary might have been a teensy bit jealous at the bond the boys share with Jody, given that she seemed unable or unwilling to connect to her children on a more personal level. I was in awe of the courage and leadership that Sam demonstrated as he tried to rally his troops to fight by his side against the BMOL.  Sam Winchester is the only one I know who can get the very two hunters who killed him to not only fight by his side, but follow his lead.  I loved the honesty that came out of Sam as he took responsibility for believing in a cause that he thought was good and right, and fought with the group who wanted to rid the world of monsters.  He truly believed that the unity of American and British hunters would be a force to be reckoned with and the monsters would lose against them.  He admitted that he was enamoured of the idea that with all that technical advancement and the skills of American hunters that they could win the war on monsters and with that began to follow.  Now he stood up there, among his peers, recognising the mistake he  made.  He realised that the BMOL are just about killing and controlling people .  They believe the end justifies the means.  Sam acknowledged that American hunters are not like that.  American hunters don't just hunt to kill.  They're about doing the right thing, even when that thing is hard to do.  American hunters are about saving lives.  They're about what it truly means to be a hero.  It was truly an inspirational call to duty and I myself would've followed Sam Winchester anywhere at that moment.  Jared did an amazing job here.

Back in S4, in Sin City, Cassie had told Dean that she was willing to follow Sam, as he was supposed to be their leader, the boy king.  The Demon Priest had told Sam that he had seen him as more of a leader.  The plan was Sam would lead the army in the Apocalypse.  As much as he's always followed his brother's lead, he had always been viewed as a leader.  Over the years, most especially this season, we've even seen Dean follow Sam's lead. Though demons had always seen Sam as a leader of demons, in retrospect I think that Sam has always been being groomed to be a leader of hunters.  Sam certainly is capable and he has the ability to get people to listen to him, believe in him and follow him.  I was bursting at the seams as I watched Dean with such pride on his face, as he listened to his brother speak.  There was no doubt in Dean's mind that Sam wouldn't succeed at this mission.  His faith in him was so blatant.  Dean didn't even hesitate when he told Sam that he had this and he would stay behind to save their Mom.  He was absolute in his belief that Sam would destroy the BMOL.   With that we get another memorable moment in which Dean reminds Sam that he's got this and that Sam make sure he comes back.  Sam's I promise followed by their version of I love you....Bitch/Jerk provided awesome broment number three.  Oh my heart. 💖.

The Winchesters just don't fight by each other, they've always fought for each other, so it stands to reason that Dean would fight to save his mother.  At last a practical use for Lady Toni.  She had hers coming no doubt, but it was nice that her last official act was helping the Winchesters.  Oh the sweet irony there.   Jensen did such a wonderful job in this scene.  He was angry, guilt ridden, hurt, sad and forgiving all at the same time.  It was both a heartbreaking and heartwarming performance.  There were many people who had desired a conversation between Sam and Mary regarding what she had done to them all those years ago.  In all honesty though, I never really expected Sam to have such a conversation.  Sam has always been shown to be very forgiving.  I think Sam has accepted and forgiven his mother long ago.  He never really had any kind of relationship with her, so I think it was easier for him to let go of the anger.  In Sam's case it seemed more like he'd been trying to connect with his mom, trying to reach out.  I think he's been trying to keep the peace because he was trying to hold onto what little relationship they had.  She was never there.  She kept her distance.  So what little he did get to see of her, he wanted to make the best of it.
 
Dean is a bit of a different story.  Dean's had this ideal of what his mother was all his life.  He built a fantasy in his head, remembering her as a four year old.  Dean's whole life was based on revenge for her death.  So when Dean is reunited with Mary, and she's nothing at all like he remembered and shows no interest in spending time with her children, Dean's anger just builds and builds. Mary just continues to betray Dean(and Sam too) left and right, first by betraying his memory of her and then by choosing to work with the BMOL and then trying to kill him and Sam.  Dean knows she's been brainwashed,  hence the reason why he's going out of his way to save her, but it doesn't take away the pain she's caused.  Dean seeing Sam as a baby, his mom cutting off the crusts to his sandwich promising him that he'd always be safe, well that was just about the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back.  For the first time ever, we really got insight to makes Dean Winchester tick. It was heartbreaking and cathartic all at once. He was finally able to just let it go, to display his anger at the right person.   As I listened to Dean tell his mother that he hated her, and heard him as he spoke of her broken promise, her deserting them, and her ultimately making him both a mother and a father, with the duty to keep Sam safe, a duty he believed he failed to do. As I listened to Dean speak on Sam's behalf, of all the pain that he had suffered because of her deal, my mind started to wander and I'd gone back a bit and Sacrifice came into my head.  I know, how did you get from this episode to an episode from four years ago?

I was thinking about the scene where Sam and Dean were discussing what Sam would say when he went into the confessional. Dean's laundry list of sins that he'd given Sam  were not sins against God, they were sins against him.....or at least so at the time it's what it seemed.  But some of them didn't make sense, like Sam being soulless, as that wasn't Sam's fault at all. I think it's safe to say that God had long past forgiven Sam for Ruby and letting Lucifer out,  after all Sam did spend a century in hell for that.  Sam of course took all those mistakes as failing his brother, which is why it was so important to him to finish the trials.  He couldn't bear to fail Dean again, and yet as Sam confessed this to Dean, the look on Dean's face was one of pain and disbelief, he couldn't understand how Sam could think such a thing.  He seemed to be genuinely shocked that Sam could believe that anyone or anything came before him and that Dean saw him as a disappointment.  Sure there are times when we all disappoint, but that doesn't mean we're considered a disappointment or a failure.    I always felt that the list Dean had given Sam had more to do with those being all the times that Sam had caused Dean pain, albeit unintentionally or under circumstances beyond his control or by simply breaking and running away when he believed Dean had died.  Those were also the times that Sam suffered the most and I always thought that Dean might have resented Sam for making him watch his brother suffer. Listening to Dean's speech to Mary though, I think I'd like to rescind that position. Hearing Dean tell Mary because of her it became his job to keep Sam safe, that it wasn't fair and he couldn't do it, I started to think about that list again.  It seems to me, that it's very possible that all of these were, in Dean's eyes, the moments he might have felt that he had failed Sam.  Those were the times in which Dean didn't or couldn't  keep Sam safe.  He died because of his deal and went to hell, so he wasn't there when Ruby preyed upon Sam.  By the time Cas got Dean out of hell, she'd already had Sam convinced that he was the one who can kill Lilith. Of course this led to Lucifer and thus Sam jumping in the pit, which Dean couldn't rescue Sam from.  Cas is the one who was responsible for Soulless Sam, yet Sam lost his soul because he was in hell.  Soulless Sam may very well have been a constant reminder that Dean couldn't get Sam out of hell. I even think Dean recognised eventually, though he never actually brought it up, that Sam not looking, him running away the way he did, was because Dean wasn't there.  Sam thought Dean died and with that Sam ran.  I think that Dean understood in Sacrifice why it was that Sam insisted on doing and completing the trials.  Sam nearly died from them, again Dean unable to protect Sam.     Now I wonder if all of that wasn't about Sam at all.  Dean's anger was based on his subconscious hatred and anger towards his mother.  His mother who made the deal in first place.  His mother who promised that she would keep them safe.  The mother who then left them, leaving Dean the responsibility to do her job, a job he believes in many ways he failed to do.  It's possible  that he deflected his anger that he had with his mom, onto Sam. I think that part of his self loathing comes from the fact that he believes that he had failed to do the job that his mother and father failed to do themselves.

I  keep going back to Amara telling Dean that she wanted to give him what he needed the way he had done for her.   Upon listening to Dean's speech to his mother, I think I finally understand what Amara's gift was.  It was Dean's freedom.  Freedom of the anger and resentment he's held onto for so long.  The freedom of this fantasy he created of his mother, this perfect person, who he had discovered wasn't perfect at all, as a matter of fact she was pretty far from it.  With her death, he wasn't free to express his hatred and anger for her.  Dean spent years of suppressing this anger, and I suppose redirecting it at the monsters he fought. Amara bringing back Mary, who was not the mother Dean or Sam imagined her to be, was finally able to purge all those repressed angry feelings.  He was able to tell her how he felt of her betrayal, to him and Sam.  He let her know all the torment Sam had gone through because of what she'd done and how much he hated her for it, and for not keeping his brother safe.  He freed himself of the anger and made room for love and forgiveness and understanding.   Maybe he can free himself of the guilt he carries for not being able to keep Sam safe.  He can accept that even though what they'd been through was awful at times, it made them who they are today.  It made them strong.  It made them love harder and stick together, forming an unbreakable bond.  It made them a force to be reckoned with.  It made them heroes.  What Mary had done so long ago was as it was supposed to be.  I think Dean is finally able to see and accept that now. So Amara did give Dean what he needed, much the way he had done for her.

Dean reached Mary through love and forgiveness.  She was thus able to confess her reasons for staying away.  Her guilt weighing heavy, knowing that everything Dean had said was the truth.  She couldn't face them and she wanted to make things right.  Her biggest fear was facing Sam, the one who endured so much pain and suffering because of the deal she had made.  She couldn't keep Sam safe that night when he was six months old, and she wasn't there to keep him safe thereafter.  How could she face him?  Truth of the matter is, Sam never felt anything but love for his Mom and never once blamed her for anything.  He, in fact, was the last person in this world that she had to be afraid of.  Cue in the last broment of the episode, which ended with an epic Winchester hug.  💝


So, did I mention how much I loved this episode yet? 💞 If I didn't......I LOVED EVERY SINGLE SECOND....😍  Jared and Jensen were fantastic, superb, brilliant, heartbreaking, kickass, beautiful, just absolutely perfect.  Both gave award worthy performances. 🎖I can't say enough good things about them, well I can but I've written way too much already.  David Haydn Jones, I will miss you.  Love him or hate him, or love to hate him, Arthur Ketch was anything but boring.  DHJ did a fantastic job bringing different nuances to a character that could have been a run of the mill psychopath.  He brought humour and a touch of class to Ketch.  David even managed to make one believe that it was possible for Ketch to have actual feelings.  I really enjoyed his character and will actually miss him.  Elizabeth Blackmore did a wonderful job with Lady Toni Bevell.  She was yet another character in which I loved to hate.  I really did enjoy her banter with Ketch and the Winchesters.  Although Lady T certainly had it coming, I actually felt bad that she never got that head start to see her son one more time. 🙁  Kim was awesome as usual. I really love her relationship with the boys.   Samantha did a fantastic job with Mary.  I  think I might have actually empathised with her and possibly even forgave her for her distance from her children.  I still would like to hear her apologise to Sam. Her scenes with Jensen and Jared were powerful.  I really enjoyed her scenes with DHJ as well.  It hasn't been too bad having Mary back. 😜
Robert Berens provided us with a bromentic filled, heartbreaking, heartwarming, kick ass episode.  It's definitely among the top ten eps of Supernatural for sure.  Thanks also Mr. Berens for the nod to a very much still missed Kim Manners.  He definitely would've been proud of this one. 

That's all for now.  Sorry it ran quite long.  Til next week when I ramble on about our awesome season finale.

Thanks for reading.

sweetondean's Light on Spoilers, Heavy on AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH Preview of the Supernatural Season 12 Finale






GUYS! IT'S HERE! OMMMMMGGGGGGG! 

IT'S HERE AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS....






AND




I'M SCARED AND EXCITED....SCARCITED! 
AND WORRIED AND EXCITED....WORCITED!

I'M ALL THE THINGS!

OKAY...Let's get to it shall we... 
HERE IS THE FINAL PREVIEW FOR SEASON 12!




THEN


NOW



For this season finale, for the first time ever, we get two episodes back to back...because according to Misha...who you can choose to believe or not, because, Misha...we wouldn't be able to handle the stress and emotion of a week in between the eps, because they are so bad! As in good bad...as in Supernatural bad...as is TORTURE!

WELL THANKS FOR THAT IMAGE, COLLINS! THANKS A BUNCH!



Here are the synopsis for both the episodes!

12x22 - WHO WE ARE

FAMILY – Caught in a dangerous situation, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) only have each other to rely on. Meanwhile, the fight between the American Hunters and the British Hunters comes to a head. John Showalter directed the episode written by Robert Berens (#1222). 


12x23 SEASON FINALE - ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER

EPIC SEASON FINALE – Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) battles Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins) for control of his unborn child. Robert Singer directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb (#1223). 

Could they give us any less information in these synopses?? NO THEY COULDN'T!



Okay 

Straight up I LOVE the sound of episode 12x22 LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE - except of course we know that stupid Lady Toni is going to be there too...that's if the dangerous situation is being trapped in the bunker with air running out, which I assume it is!

Also...so much t-shirt action! Important things are important.


The American hunters include Jody, AND I AM SCARED OUT OF MY WITS FOR HER AND KIM DID NOT HELP WHEN SHE SAID STUFF AT ASYLUM!

SUPERNATURAL WRITERS, BASICALLY


Also...what's happening here? Transferring memories back to Mary to reverse the brainwashing? Freakin' love that shirt on Dean...Jensen looks sooooo good in red! He wore red at Dallascon one year, and gee it went so nice with my hair.... But...I digress....


So the first ep is about the Mary, the British Men of Letters, the American hunters and all that jazz....




The second ep is the Lucifer baby mamma drama. So is all the BMoL stuff wrapped up in the ep before? Hmmmm....


TFW FTW! Heh.



And team Winchester! ('Bout time...)



And Lucifer in his sharp new jacket!



Okay...again...

So we only got one iddy biddy promo from the CW...here it is.... 


I mean...really? A two hour whole night season finale and we got a one stinkin' 20 second promo?? REALLY?

I am loving Dean with that machine gun though...like a lot.....



THANK GOODNESS FOR THE SHOW AND SHAVING PEOPLE, PUNTING THINGS!



I REPEAT


I pulled this promo apart frame by frame...literally....there's 2546 of them! So I could look at every single image and especially all the quick cuts at the end!

Questions:

What do you reckon this is??



Is this Rowena's curl? Meep!



Who is the mysterious figure that Cas obviously knows.



Who dies? Like really... WHO??! TELL ME SO I CAN PREPARE!

What the hell is this wasteland place? Did a bomb go off? Is it another plain? Is it a cosmic consequence?


AND WHY IS DEAN DOING THIS??? WHY?????



Also... how come they're so pretty?


I NEED YOUR THEORIES...except on the pretty thing....that I'm all over!

What do you think is going to happen? What do you think the cliffhanger is going to be? If we're going to be devastated and need to keep the faith, what the hell is going to devastate us. If the cast were shocked...what the hell do you think shocked them! 



I'm not ready for these episodes...but you know...I totally am. SO, SO READY

But I'm SO NOT READY FOR HELLATUS!



THIS IS IT GUYS!!!  THE GOD DAMN  SEASON 12 SEASON FINALE!





SNEAK PEEK TIME!



UGH. I do not like Toni Bevell. Her snotty accent gets right up my nose. Who knows if she's telling the truth or not. Probably. Mind you, I'm not sure I'm comfy with the boys killing her knowing she has a kidlet, that would be sad for said kidlet. Not that I care a jot about her. Smart!Sam is smart though - go find some damn spell to get you out of there, the Bunker is full of them! 

Weeeeeeeeeeeeee! 

I'M EXCITED!!!!

Here's some more info on the amazing crew who bought us our eps tonight.






AND HERE'S DABB'S TWEET OF THE WEEK - THE BASTARD!








OKAY GUYSSSSSSSSSSSS THIS IS IT
THIS IS TRULY IT!!!



KEEP CALM AND.....
