Here we are at episode 17 of the season! Eeeeeep! It's getting horribly close to the finale! OH MY GOSH! Why does the back end of the season always seem to fly by! All of a sudden it feels like it's nearly over! Thank goodness for season 12! Whew!
Okay...so where are we?
Sam and Dean worked a case with a soul sucking out thing - that was not Amara - and Dean was shown Sam dead, which was a huge relief! Because this is Supernatural! And because that means... Sammy is Dean's number one concern and number one worry and number one EVERYTHING! And that was awesomeness. AWESOMENESS!
And then Sam held Dean in his arms....
Let's just relive this for one moment shall we?
Because we're gunna need it....for reasons of later...
DO NOT EVEN GO NEAR SAM AND DO NOT DARE TO REAP HIM!
Um. *whelp* Let's look at the synopsis!
Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) battle a pair of werewolves who have captured two victims. Just as the brothers are about to win, one of the werewolves shoots Sam. Dean gets his brother and the victims out of the house but learns a pack of werewolves are hot on their tail, hoping to kill them all. Nina Lopez-Corrado directed the episode written by Robert Berens & Andrew Dabb (#1117).
Written by Dabb and Berens! This should be interesting! Two great writers! And it's exciting to see they both contributed to this one! And this is Nina Lopez-Corrado very first episode as director. One of the few women directors that have helmed this show!
Here she is with Billie the Reaper...who I USED TO LIKE!
Okie dokie....let's look at the promo.... eeeeeeep!
I've always liked Billie the Reaper...but no so much now! NOT SO MUCH! Not going after Sam!
I mean obviously she doesn't take him...so he either survives, or Sam or Dean do a deal, or Billie changes her mind for some reason...like maybe Dean makes her realise they all need Sam to defeat The Darkness or Sam does a deal, and she gets it...and says she'll leave him alone FOR NOW...BUT WILL TAKE HIM ONCE THE DARKNESS IS GONE...OH MY GOD I JUST KILLED MYSELF WITH A SEASON 11 CLIFFHANGER IDEA!!!!
Whatever it is....I don't like a Reaper going after Sammy, and I don't like Sammy being shot, and I don't like Dean thinking he's going to lose Sam...I don't like it.
And now for the sneak peek.... BE WARNED AND HOLD ON TO YOUR FEELS!
LIKE, WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU PLAYING AT, SUPERNATURAL??? DO WE NOT GIVE YOU ENOUGH OF OUR TEARS? DO WE NOT!?
OMG though, that scene is way harsh. WAY WAY WAY HARSH. And, yes, we know Sam doesn't die. Yes, we know for reasons of next week's episode and season 12 and probably 13 and yada yada yada.... BUT THAT'S NOT A GOOD PLACE TO BE SHOT, better than the heart or head I guess, BUT NOT GOOD. NOT GOOD. He's alllllll bleedy. How do they turn this around? Does Dean do some amazing field surgery? I can not wait to find out!
Sammy.... this is for you in case you need it....
Okay. Just everyone take a deep breath (especially me, apparently) and remember SAM WILL BE FINE...though fine in the Winchester's world might not be the same as our fine! Seriously though...I'm mighty interested to see how this plays out! And I'm going to admit this right here...because I'm amongst friends....and you won't judge me....because you probably secretly/not secretly feel the same...seeing Dean trying to save Sam and being all defiant, and panicked and scared and strong and angry and sad and all those millions of feels Dean is going to have when his Sammy gets shot right in front of him, is going to be kind of exquisite. Right? RIGHT? DON'T LEAVE ME HANGING HERE WITH MY BAD FEELS!
I leave you with these tweets from the evil yet talented Andrew Dabb and Bob Berens....
You gotta love them.. EVEN IF THEY DID SHOOT SAM!
