Things that I've noticed while re-watching Dean and Sam's reunion scene in Reichenbach... six things that may be true.

1. Demon!Dean's speech patterns and inflection are different from Dean's. The tilt of his head, the lilt of his voice, are very Not!Dean. Lighter. Maybe being Not!Dean is lighter than being Dean. All of the responsibility of being Dean Winchester, savior, protector, warrior, martyr; it's all gone. Maybe because he finally gets to do the one thing almost everyone else eventually gets to do, the one thing he hasn't been able to do since he was four years old - stop worrying about monsters - maybe the weight of that being lifted is enough to lighten his load. Or maybe it's something else. Maybe it's not the weight of the monsters he's been carrying, but the people. The people he loves - those who are still with him (temporarily; it's always temporary, he always loses them one way or another) and those he's already lost, who have all thrown themselves onto the hand grenade that is Dean's life, who all died because of something he did or something he didn't do; they're gone but that doesn't mean they weigh any less, but now that they're been excised from his heart, along with his guilt and worry and responsibility, maybe he's so much lighter that even his voice is lighter.

Maybe... )

Things you might have missed

[livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight noticed this awesome little thing between Dean and Crowley (scroll down to the comment) that I had missed and you must check it out because it's adorable.

And [livejournal.com profile] galwithglasses spotted a moose in an unexpected place which is surely a love letter (or at least a wink) to the fans. (And if you scroll down into the comments, there's a possible squirrel sighting too!)

Something that's been bugging me

I'm kind of unhappy with the way Hannah was portrayed in 10.02. Not because I'm tired of the angel storyline (though I still am, sorry) but because she's too human. She sees Cas fall asleep on the couch and you know, this is unheard of for angels. A sleeping angel is a nonangel. Is a dead angel. So her first instinct shouldn't have been to cover him with his coat, it should have been to poke him to see if he's alive. Then she watches him with the little girl and yes, it's precious. If you're human. If you're a human heterosexual female, you're going to see an attractive man being all adorable with a kid and your hormones are going to jump up and say "Urgh! Good genes, and does not eat baby! He will drag me back to cave and we will mate furiously and produce many babies!" If you're human. But why would an angel watch this and feel all squishy?

(Disclaimer: I am not an angel. Watching Cas with the little girl did make me feel all squishy. But I want to see Cas take care of Sam. Somebody needs to take care of Sam, dammit. That would make me feel super squishy.)

Something that just occurred to me

Cole now thinks his father was killed by a demon. That makes the whole thing even more sad.

Four things. Spoilers for 10.02 but they're also spoiler tagged inside so you can go ahead and click through if you haven't seen that one yet.

Strategically calibrating expectations )

Oh, wait, I have a number five, but it's not even remotely SPN-related. I'm wearing black pants and navy trouser socks. And I noticed before I left the house and said "oh, fuck it" and left anyway. I don't know why I feel like you need to know that. And who am I to make fun of Hannah's weird short pants, when I deliberately leave the house like this? (Boom. There you go. It's SPN-related now. Because everything is.)

Hoo boy. Have you recovered enough to take the poll?

Reminder - no spoilers in the comments, please, including the promo for 10.03.
You don't know what I've done. I might have it coming. )

A hyphenated word counts as one word, right? If so, here are 100 words about 10.02.

Last week was All About Sam. This week almost made me forget I’m a Sam!Girl. Shall we begin?

I don't know what I'm dealing with )

I’m unspoiled and haven’t watched the preview (and oh god, it was hard) so please help me stay that way.
