Waking Methos

SPN 6x12

So I'm not sure any of that made sense, but I mostly liked it anyway?



Why so many virgins if they just needed a body for the Mother to inhabit?

Why why why why why why does Cas keep insisting that somehow it would be better to leave Sam's soul in eternal torment than bring him back? At least if he's back he can be killed and put at rest if absolutely necessary.

Why did they imply the dragons were seeking virgins because dragons are just in to virgins if it turned out they needed virgins to bring back the Mother? I mean, presumably, any monster that wanted to bring her back would have needed virgins. Maybe dragons like virgins because they have a particular interest in the Mother?

(FWIW, my FList has asked why virgins necessarily meant adult women, and apparently the answer is because Mom wants a female body and doesn't want to be stuck in a child).

Doesn't Dean know that if you can't pull the sword out easily, further struggling with it isn't going to help?

WHY WHY WHY do they run the damn credits over Dean and Sam's reunion hug but not the Sam and Bobby hug? Are they trying to make us Sam/Bobby 'shippers?

Or maybe Sam/Cas 'shippers, because that aborted hug was cute but weirdly unmotivated?

Did Dean really say Cas is a child? (I like it, actually, and the reason I like it is because it was one of the least ... stylized ... moments involving Dean and Cas that we've seen. I don't know if that makes sense outside my head.)

Is the Mother going to turn out to be Echidna? She could be a resurrected Lilith, I suppose, except that in this 'verse it sounds like Lilith isn't the mother of monsters. Also, Show has never put this much energy into making Lilith interesting before.

Anyhoo, on the whole, mostly I'm glad because Jared did a great job at re-ensouled and distressed Sam - his face when he recognized he'd been walking around without a soul was fantastic. And I'm so happy to have my witch-hunting gay brothers who are in gay love with each other back.

Comicon. Heh.

I REALLY WANT IT TO BE ECHIDNA SO MUCH :( But I assume it will not be and I'll be disappointed and probably annoyed.
I think it's plausible, actually. And from her introduction it may be that they make her interesting, which would be a nice change from the cipher that was Lilith.
I mostly assume it won't be because I want it to be SO MUCH and I figure the show will break my heart. But I think it would be really interesting if they went that way! And, yeah, hopefully actually interesting.

Yes! This!! Easily my favorite moment. Though overall, I liked the episode as a whole too.

Even if I couldn't care less about dragons or virgins.
Yes, I didn't care about the "plot" until the end when we saw the Big Bad. But Sam n Dean being together and not angry at each other made me so happy.

Okay, good, I wasn't the only one who ended up completely lost on what dragons had to do with any of this?
No, you were not the only one.

I KNOW! I could practically hear the anguished groans of spn vidders.
ha! Perhaps that is the answer? THE THWARTING OF WINCEST VIDDERS! heeeee.
Trying to apply logic to the writing will only end in tears. BUT. We still have Sam's faaaaaaace. Not all is lost!

THIS. Heh.

And Sam's ensouled face wins at everything, siiiiigh.
Heh
"...trying to apply logic to the writing will only end in tears..."

probably the truest thing i have heard about this ep so far
I was so excited for all of ten seconds that Show would acknowledge that adult men could be virgins too.

Naaah.
Yeah. I mean, they had a textual reason for why the dragons wanted women - as a host for Mom - but Sam n Dean could have made a remark. They did not.
Agreed. And I don't mind that too much but... I would settle for at least a tiny acknowledgement that virgin != fluffy pink-room with well-loved stuffed animals and promise rings and general "girl" ness. Maybe this means I can sneakily avoid dragons though.
but how can they renew smallville and still say its 'the final season' in all the logos and credits and ads for the show?
maybe its the entire network that britomart's logic comment applies to
Wait, they're doing that?
doing which, calling it the 'last season' or renewing it? the post that said that spn and gossip girl would be renewed that link also said that smallville is coming back too...so...draw your own conclusions as to the veracity of the poster...or the network...
