In my never-ending battle to avoid spoilers, I don't read the descriptions U-verse (my television provider) gives each episode. Turns out that's not really a problem sometimes. These are actual U-verse descriptions:



Mom had a very complicated way of committing suicide. I wonder how she got herself on the ceiling?

IT KEEPS DYING ON TUESDAY.

First 9.02 and now this. I really can't believe it. I can catch the episode on the CW app or Hulu but I WANTED TO SEE IT TONIGHT LIKE GOD INTENDED!!!!!!! Any chance it will be available on iTunes tonight?

Thanks to the bozos at AT&T who gave us an obsolete/faulty Uverse box, I was unable to record 9.02 (sob) so I've been forced to rewatch on Hulu. Which means sitting through commercials, argh. Anyway, I noticed something this time around that I didn't notice before.

Someone (I thought it was [livejournal.com profile] ash48 but now I can't find any of it in her LJ) did a lot of really interesting meta posts regarding color in SPN. Basically, Team Free Will wears red and blue, and green is a sign of danger that's often worn by victims. And oh, look what Sammy's wearing at the end of this episode. When he's talking about finally being happy. Yes, Sam, that green really brings out your eyes. But it also screams "victim."

Also, there's been some discussion about what Dean really meant when he said "it's a horror show up there" when Abaddon threatens to blow smoke up his ass. I know a lot of fans think he's talking about his state of mind, after rewatching (and rewatching and rewatching) I honestly think he's just talking about his ass. Because that's a very Dean thing to do - act as if he's taking her literally and make a joke about it.

I didn't expect this episode to be as good as 9.01, since it would have to set up a story, and I was right, but it still had its moments.

Things that made me go squee

  • Dean calling Kevin "Katniss."  \o/

  • Samzekiel's angel wings! \o/

  • "You killed three demons by yourself?" "I'm awesome."

  • Are we gonna fight or make out, cause I'm getting mixed signals.

  • Kevin's in the family! Though, given the family history, this may not be such a good thing for you, Kevin

  • We were given hope that Mama Tran is alive.

  • Kevin Solo!

Things I'm ashamed to admit I really enjoyed

  • Abbadon threatening Dean

  • Abbadon pawing at Dean.

  • Basically, Abbadon and Dean

Things that made me sad

  • Abbadon asking Dean if he's ever heard a woman screaming because he's pulling her guts out. You know what? He probably has. See: Hell.

  • No Castiel. Although this plays into my theory (see below) about Ezekiel.

  • Sam is finally happy? Surrounded by "family" and "friends" which consist of one brother, one prophet, and a demon chained in the basement?  THS IS A BAD SIGN, SAMMY.

  • Tracy being mean to Sammy. I will smite you, bitch.

Things that made me yell at the TV

  • The brothers' plan to get the names of all the demons from Crawley and then go kill them. Seriously? When it takes, like, 5 seconds for a demon to posess a new body? You think you're gonna be able to just round them all up that way?

  • They just left Irv's body? Didn't give him a hunter's funeral? WTF?

  • "I'm a good guy, but I guess that's what a bad guy would say." YES, DEAN. YES IT IS.

My predictions

I haven't seen the previews and I don't even know the episode title for next week, so this is all just conjecture on my part, and it may already be known to be true or untrue. I was disappointed that we didn't see Cas, and I'm anxious for him to get to the bunker, but it occurred to me in the shower (where I do all my thinking) that they could be dragging this out because once Cas sees Samzekiel, he's going to know it's not really Ezekiel in there. Samzekiel's raggedy, damaged angel wings give credence to his claim to have been injured in the fall, but I still don't trust that guy.

Also, I was initially disappointed in Jared's portrayal of Samekiel because, while he usually does a FANTASTIC job of playing Not!Sam, I thought he was really too wooden and robotic compared to the guy who played Zeke in 9.01. But now I know Jared actually came up with that character first, so the other actor (whose name I can't recall) is the one who wasn't following Jared's lead. Too bad. (Also, Jared tweeted that his father wanted to name him Zeke! Hee!)
