Thinky thougts


(Sorry this is so wordy but that ep really brought out the thinky thoughts in me...)

I gotta say it took me a while to get what was going on in this episode. And I don't mean what it was about.. that was pretty clear, it was the way it was being presented that (initially) was confusing. And then when the penny dropped... it's the ultimate noir episode ... I was along for the ride.

And that's what this show keeps doing. Taking us along for a ride and each time it seems to chose a different type of road to take us down.

This time they used the classic noir element of the narrator to present its story. "An omniscient, metaphor-spouting narrator (often the central character, a world-weary private eye) frequently clarifies a characteristically labyrinthine noir plot or offers a subjective, jaded point of view" (source)

I find it interesting that usually it's a mysterious damsel that has the "detective" recalling the story and working out where he went wrong or could have made a different decision. I am assuming Dean, or maybe even "the boys" filled that role tonight. The heart of this story was filled with as much love, despair, betrayal and self doubt as any good noir genre film.

The way it was filmed homaged that style and of course it helps that Cas wears a trench coat. *g*

Even down to the way the dialogue was written and delivered. No... not corny (as I was first thinking..) but stylised.

So in light of that, Supernatural (once again) fills me with AWE and GLEE. Not only for having the guts to play with the way it delivers its story but also for its passion for film genres.

Good move Show! I'm impressed.

That said... WOW.. there were some reveals tonight! Admittedly, for me, nothing too unexpected. I love that we've had some confirmations of things we already suspected. The big one being Cas raised Sam from hell (and how much do I love that he raised both Dean AND Sam from perdition..). Though why did Sam not have a hand print? (I know, I know... don't ask those questions!)

In the beginning I wasn't particularly interested to know all the details of why Cas was fighting the war in heaven. We knew he was and that was enough for me. But now, when I sit back and reflect, I'm glad to know it all. I think it clears the way for the last two episodes and it certainly sheds some light as to what Cas has been doing all season.

Counting the ways....

One thing that's a little difficult when reviewing an episode from a "subjective, jaded" point of view is how much can we take at face value. How much is "real" and how much is just the way Castiel saw things? I'm going to take it for face value because I suspect that's how we are meant to take it. I could be wrong of course.

Some things I loved in particular:

1. Dean.

Dean was an interesting study and I think we are still seeing that growth in character development that has been present throughout season six.

Dean knows betrayal. From the start we know Dean has experienced betrayal and tonight he experienced it again. Only this time he seemed to truly understand where it's came from. Sure it hurt (and wow.. I loved the way Jensen played that), but due to his experience about why people have betrayed him in the past, he could see this betrayal as "good intentions" rather than because he is some sort of failure (has he has done in the past....)

He knows why deals are struck with the devil. He's done it, John's done it and so has Sam. He also knows NO GOOD WILL COME OF IT! No matter how good the intentions are (listen to him Cas. He's knows what he's talking about!!).

That doesn't mean I don't feel for him. Cas has been a genuine friend to Dean, Sam and Bobby. He has a "special bond" with Dean (even as a non-shipper it's damn clear he does) so for Dean to lose that - another real friend and ally, is heart breaking. (though I suspect Cas will come around to the power of mere humans in the end...)

Dean showed strength in despair and disappointment - and that's why he's a goddamn big hero.

2. Sam.

Sam was a little more in the shadows tonight, but his acknowledgement of the betrayal was strong also. We could see how much he wanted Cas to be on the up - not just for Cas but for Dean as well. (how's his clap on Dean's shoulder when the truth comes out?...*hearts* them)

Sam's face when he found out Cas was the one who raised him... :(( Cas knew all this time.... It really is a huge betrayal.

I wanted to believe that Cas didn't know Sam came back soulless (and I actually do believe that...) but with all the lying Cas has done it's hard to believe anything that comes out of his mouth. Not only do the boys not trust him - we can't either.

*draws hearts around show* You know how to play us.... <333

3. Castiel

SO much going on for him tonight.

I'm not always enthralled by Cas's story I have to admit. I think they struggle to find a place for him in the story arc and usually I'm all... "but I want to know about the boys..". But I think they've really thought Castiel's story through from the beginning and given him a bit of meat. An episode every now and then that's devoted to him I'm good with. Especially when it gives us an outsider POV of the boys. :)

So Cas is a "kid" and is learning to manage emotions and understand loyalty and make the hard decisions... I feel for Cas too. I'm loving the way he is mirroring Sam's "good intentions" from season 4. ( DEAN KNOWS CAS! SAM DID IT BEFORE YOU!)

Cas is learning. He might have been around since the dawn of time, but he really isn't that wise. It's probably the thing I like most about him and why he'll probably do the right thing in the end. Or not.

I loved his constant I AM AN ANGEL... as though that makes everything ok. Or important. "I am important so what I am doing is right". Oh Cas.

(I know there's more to say but that's probably a bit tooooo thinky for me at the moment).

4. The Winchesters are AWESOME!

I love it when the boys are referred to in outsider conversations. They really are larger than any demon or angel. They are THE WINCHESTERS! DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THEM! At least Crowley got that right!

5. Friends, family and brotherhood.

Show keeps coming back to its roots. Family. And loyalty. And love. Cas is like a brother to Dean. Dean, Sam and Bobby are family to Cas. More so than his actually family. Family is hard. And I love that we keep seeing how damn hard it is. LOVE that they are showing it through Cas rather than Sam and Dean fighting. Looks like they really have moved on from that. (YAY! Please keep doing that..)

6. Hades.....

IS A LINE! \o/I love it.... so much... yes. BRILLIANT.


Other stuff...

*I can't put Crowley in my list of loves because he's always grated on me. I mean.. I like Mark Sheppard well enough and I like the menace he (mostly) brings to Crowley but... ah... I dunno... Can't pin point it. Maybe it's the character.

*The torture was pretty tough to watch. I know show is dark and I love that about it.. but yeah... I actually really felt for that monster that Crowley was torturing and Cas was ignoring...

Though I did LOVE that that torture was then mirrored with Bobby and Sam torturing the demon for info on Crowley. Hmmm...how different are they after all...

*The lack of women in the Show was really apparent tonight. It's not something that usually bugs me (too) much, but tonight it seemed so obvious. I think because with noir there is usually a woman who is often central to the narrator's dilema and because there wasn't one it really stood out. Though it was great to see Rachel (briefly) and how she fitted in to Castiel's story.

Watching was an interesting journey tonight. I kinda cringed when Cas looked at the camera and thought about my beloved 4th wall but then as it became more apparent about what they were doing I started to really fall in love with it.

I think we are poised for a very exciting finale. I have NO idea what they are planning. They've kept Sam's wall out of the story line for a while so I figure it will come on in full force over the next two (I hope!). There's still Meg and maybe even Adam (am I living in too much hope here?) might make an appearance.

I can't WAIT! though I think they miss one next week don't they?! Arghhh... 2 weeeks?! That sucks...

I actually really enjoyed the episode and your most excellent commentary helped articulate why much, much better than I could have done. Much better!

I also loved the emphasis on betrayal...and family. They are often tied together on this show, aren't they? Larger than life, as are the Winchesters. Yeah, I loved that too.

I'm kind of at the point where I'm fine with anything as long as my boys aren't mad at each other any more. Not real deep, I know! ;)

7th-May-2011 03:12 pm (UTC)
Thank you hun. Initially I was like..."why are they telling us and not showing us like they normally do... and then it twigged and I was... Oh Show! You art so clever.... *g*

I'm kind of at the point where I'm fine with anything as long as my boys aren't mad at each other any more

I am SO at that point. They still want to show us how tough family is but now they're giving us Cas to drive that theme instead of the boys. I'm so happy about that. And I think with everything the boys have been through they can use that to understand (and maybe help?) Cas in the future...

I'm also glad that we got it all in one chunk, even if the chunk was a little clunky in format, because I'm not really that interested and this way it wasn't like the whole season dwelled on it or anything.

For once, I am fairly relaxed watching Supernatural... you know, like it's entertainment and not some form of demonic torture. :)
7th-May-2011 03:27 pm (UTC)
like it's entertainment and not some form of demonic torture. :)

Hee....well... we still have the finale to go.../o\ *thinking positive thoughts only*

Though YES... entertaining is far easier than heartbreaking, soul destorying ARGHHHHH... after an episode.

I love your post v. much. And I linked it in my journal, because YES OMG NOIR, this show never does anything by accident. :D
7th-May-2011 03:19 pm (UTC)
Oh you did? Thank you.. :)

After all the talk about this season having a "noir" feel I think this one went the whole way. Of all the ways they could have chosen to tell Castiel's backstory this was the best way to do it I reckon..

Nothing is by mistake. (hee... well maybe those little things...)

I really enjoyed this episode in a way that's different from my usual enjoyment of the show (which I'm sure makes no sense, but I can't put it into words, ack!) It was nice to have a Cas-centric episode after his glaring and sometimes as you said, awkward absence... and this did a really good job to tie in his activities throughout the season. Much love for that! it was also a delightful juxtaposition to last week's ep which had me in stitches at some points.

My personal idea about the no handprint on Sam issue is that it's somehow connected to the whole having/not having a soul. Dean's shown a persistent sensitivity to his welt (along with the whole 'profound bond' deal to Cas) and perhaps that's due to a soul's connection with an angel's grace at the point of raising or such. Sam had none, so ergo he had no lasting imprint. Of course that's just me waffling and overthinking, so I wait for the far better, official version. ;)

And a note on the noir narration; I was watching the ep and my mother is around for the weekend and commented later this evening that she'd heard the opening, enjoyed it and wondered who 'the lovely voice' belonged to. XD
7th-May-2011 11:29 pm (UTC)
It does makes sense..*g* Show was different. I think it asked viewers to change the way it watched it. (and I suspect not everyone would have been happy doing that..). It confused me at first, but once I changed the way I was watching it, I loved it.

I like your idea on Sam's hand print. I'd like to think Show thinks like that but I don't think they think as deeply as we do.

Ahhh... "that lovely voice".... Misha sure does have a lovely voice. <3333

7th-May-2011 04:55 pm (UTC)
Interestingly enough, if you think about it, Dean is dealing with the same thing he did with Sam when it comes to Cas. Pride.

Sam had powers and thought himself worthy of stopping Lilith and the apocalypse because of them. Cas is an angel and has powers and sees himself as the only one standing between Heaven and Raphael's armageddon.

They both were/are doing what they think is right for the greater good. But when you have a brother who doesn't see the gray -- he only sees that there is a young boy in the middle of a besieged town and will drop everything he's doing to get that kid back to a relative (see: last week) -- things get murky.

For all his problems -- his low self-worth, his extreme co-dependency, his daddy issues, his emotional distance -- he really is the moral center of the show. He's more willing to die than to allow Michael to use him as his vessel; he'd rather die than team up with Eve. He's a very black and white type of man, which can be difficult for those around him.

Especially Castiel, who still sees it as his duty to protect the Winchesters, despite the fact that they've handily defeated everything that has been thrown at them. That duty -- that sin of pride -- is sending him down the wrong path, much as it did Sam with the demon blood.

Bobby, Cas, and Sam will do whatever it takes for the greater good. (As would I, which is why I fully support both Sam's and Castiel's recent decisions) Dean's outlook is much more narrow, and that raises conflict in the family.

Despite mentioning the word a few times, I don't think Castiel understands that he's sinning because of his pride. And a deadly sin at that. He's blinded because of his love for his human family and will do whatever needs to be done to protect them.

Dean, on the other hand, would rather risk the apocalypse than watch Castiel go dark and work with Crowley.

It was nice to finally hear Dean admit what Cas meant to him, considering his shit behavior of last season and this one when Cas is concerned. It irritates me that Dean can act like a douche, barking orders at Cas and treating him like a child all season, and then we get one writer who understands the dynamics better and can knock the characterization between them out of the park, but we have to wait until almost the season is over.

There are no easy answers to this one. Dean knows what it means to sell your soul, and he's trying to prevent Cas from taking that route. Cas, who is full of pride and righteousness, thinks he can make a deal with a devil and still keep his integrity. Dean knows that won't work because he's seen it happen to Sam and how their trust was broken. I think Dean is desperately trying to get Cas to listen to him, one brother to another.
7th-May-2011 11:40 pm (UTC)
Yes... exactly. What do they say?... Pride before a fall. Sam feel and I suspect Cas will too - unless something major happens to turn things around. I suspect the finale will deal with that aspect.

I agree that Dean is the moral centre of the Show. He also stands his ground (like last week), not buckling to pressure no matter how dire. And I suspect that's why he keeps surviving... he's being true to himself and by doing that he's doing the right thing.

Also, Dean strikes me at times as having nothing to lose. Obviously he does - his family - but he often says "kill me then.." He's not afraid to die. He'd rather that then make the same dreadful mistake again.

I couldn't figure why Dean has been so off hand with Cas - maybe it is the inconsistency in the writing. I though it might have been deliberate - giving Cas more reason to betray Dean. But you could be right. It took someone who understands their dynamic to get it right.

And Dean is most definitely trying to get Cas to listen to him. No good will come of teaming up with a demon. Dean knows that.

Oh show! So much thinky one ep!

I actually thought Cas was badass and believed in Dean&Cas! Something I rarely do in canon (but fic can of course get it right).
7th-May-2011 11:47 pm (UTC)
Oh Cas was very badass.... I like badass Cas. It's like he's discovering what he's made of. But then backs down and gets all thinky about it.

I totally buy Dean 'n Cas (can't do Dean/Cas for some reason..). Theirs is certainly an interesting friendship. Both needing something from the other. It's also so complicated. Hee... but it wouldn't be Show if it was easy.
7th-May-2011 08:35 pm (UTC)
THIS ENTIRE EPISODE!! <3

I'm still such an emotional mess so the fact that you took the time to write all this leaves me in AWE.

When sam asked cas if he'd brought him back soulless on purpose -- I was like : *____________* WHAT IF HE DID?!?! I mean, yeah, it doesn't seem like it but why plant that seed if it's not going anywhere? Cas never full out denied it did he? I may have to go back and rewatch but he said something like "how could you think that?" -- and dean's reaction..or rather NON-reaction was surprising too. Maybe it was too overwhelming given everything but I feel like they should have spent more time on how EXACTLY sam came back soulless. And why!

I just really can't wait for the next two episodes. ALL OUR QUESTIONS BETTER BE ANSWERED OR I WILL NOT LAST THE HELLATUS.

:(

These characters break me like no one else!

Lovely review, BB!
8th-May-2011 12:36 am (UTC)
\o/

I certainly get very thinky at times... that episode left me in AWE!

Cas never full out denied it did he?

Yeah.. I'm thinking they've deliberately left that open so we don't know for sure. It would mean that Cas performed that very painful procedure of searching for his soul when he didn't really have to. That may well be unforgivable if that's the case. But I think Cas was in as much dismay as Dean was at the news that Sam didn't have his soul. I dunno... they could go anywhere with that.

I REALLY want to know more about why Sam came back soulless - how (and why) the body was separated in the first place. I wonder if that will be answered..

I HOPE SO!.. because you're right. We have another damn hellatus coming up and too many unanswered questions will kill me...

Thanks.

Threadjacking here, sorry, but:

It would mean that Cas performed that very painful procedure of searching for his soul when he didn't really have to.

Also would make me wonder if there was another reason that Cas was so adamant that Dean leave Sam's soul alone.
8th-May-2011 11:22 am (UTC)
Yeah - that's the big one isn't it. Makes me wonder if Sam's soul was being used to keep Cas powerful. Oh man... doesn't bear thinking about. Dean can probably understand Cas's motives for siding with Crowley, but deliberating hurting Sam. I think Dean would find that unforgivable.

Though I dunno.. I think Cas just screwed up. Tried to do the right thing by rescuing Sam but missed his soul somehow. :(((

Oh cas...

7th-May-2011 09:34 pm (UTC)
No... not corny (as I was first thinking..) but stylised.

Exactly. It's a fine line, and I suppose subjective how it sounds but stylised is the word I'd go with for this. Not corny, or cheesy.

Dean showed strength in despair and disappointment - and that's why he's a goddamn big hero.

♥♥♥

Sam and Cas were heartbreaking. And Sam, who was the believer and prayed regularly, and needed to believe there was a higher power looking out for them, when he meets the angels and finds out they're dicks, he's disappointed. But then he's got Castiel as the exception and I feel like Castiel restored a lot of his faith. So to have Castiel of all people breaking trust....oh, Sam. :( :( :( I love that Castiel tried to save him, though, and screwed up. That sort of makes Robo!Sam easier on my brain, because it was a consequence of someone who loved Sam trying to help him, not part of Crowley's plots. Still horrifying but it makes me feel a little better.

For now I'm taking Castiel at face value on that, because of his stricken, stricken face when Sam asked him if he'd left his soul behind on purpose. In that ring of fire, Castiel isn't trying to lie to them, only rationalize his actions and explain his side of things.

There was so much about Castiel's identity in this. "What are you, Castiel." Castiel's figuring it out. In an interview, Ben Edlund said he was a "hybrid."

Hee, the Winchesters! Striking fear into the heart of the King of Hell!
8th-May-2011 12:44 am (UTC)
I think noir treads that fine line with cheesy - but done well it shouldn't come across like that. Initially I was sure, but then it slipped into place and it made a hell of a lot more sense to me.

And yes.. Sam and Cas. :( So you think Cas genuinely just messed up and didn't bring his soul back? I think that's the way I'm tending to look at it too. It would be just TOO damn heart breaking if Cas knew all that time that he was soulless. It makes the sense when he searched for Sam's soul unnecessary torture and I don't even think Cas would do that to Sam. And yes, he genuinely looked shocked and hurt that Sam would even think that.

And yeah... Crowley came after Sam returned.... Good. I feel better about that now also. <333

Ben Edlund said he was a "hybrid."

Ah. I haven't read that interview yet. That's interesting then. But definitely makes a lot of sense. He's always been that mix of angel and human. He really is struggling to find who he is and what's right and wrong. He only has Dean (and Sam) to tell him what he's doing isn't right. But is that enough..? We'll see I suppose. *bounces*

The Winchester's are MIGHTY!! We could have told them that... :D :D

*hugs*

7th-May-2011 09:40 pm (UTC)
Also, this ep pretty much clears (opens?) all doubt on whether Cas could only find the boys when they prayed for him. He was hanging around, watching them, and keeping tabs on Sam when the boys didn't know. Thus, the boys must be sigil-less and findable! Oh noes! But then why haven't any other angels come around to kick their asses? Or is Raphael just worried about bigger, angelic, Cas-sized fish?

I was thinking about your comments, and don't really have much to say cuz I pretty much agree (Dean's face. Sam's face. Ack, killed me. Especially when we knew the betrayal was coming, and seeing Dean realize it was just sooo painful. And Sam was close to tears!)

Except, so, the torture... I know it was hard to watch, but part of me was like, 'Finally! Demon credibility'. They are frickin demons, and yeah they probably only showed it cuz he was torturing another monster, but for a show that makes so very many allusions to torture, it's nice to see they have the balls to go there once in a while.
8th-May-2011 12:50 am (UTC)
Yep! He can located them whenever, where ever. So sigils are definitely gone.

But then why haven't any other angels come around to kick their asses?

I think you could be right, Raphael is probably not too concerned about the mere humans at the moment. He's one of those who could be underestimating them... ;)

I think the Show definitely alludes to the torture quite a bit. I mean, the stuff with Meg and Ruby (and Sam) on the table made it pretty clear what goes on in hell. It's pretty damn scary and horrifying. As well it should be....It also showed how truly evil Crowley was. Hmmm... maybe that's why I don't like him. *shivers*



7th-May-2011 09:50 pm (UTC)
I JUST remembered the whole two week wait means the penultimate and finale air THE SAME NIGHT! THAT IS DANGEROUS!!

Other than that, um, basically EVERYTHING YOU SAID HERE!
8th-May-2011 12:52 am (UTC)
I know! Two episodes in one hit! I just.. that's going to be AMAZING!! hee... and mighty dangerous. Fandom may well implode.

I think I just might friggin' explode just waiting for them...

Thank you for such a thinky review!!! You've give me lots to think about :)

I LOVED this ep for a 1000 reasons, and my love for Cas can no longer be measured. BUT ... there's something I'm having a really hard time reconciling - Crowley as "enemy-number-one-worth-ending-angel-human-bond-over"

I actually really enjoyed Crowley's character last season; he was great for comic relief and he walked that line of one of the bad-good guys perfectly. Yeah, he was in it for himself BUT he really did help the boys stop the Apocalypse AND he gave Bobby back the ability to walk. That he didn't have to do.

For me, Crowley's always been a perfect "anti-hero" - bad, but not really. The boys dealt with him because they HAD to; why now are they being such douches to Cas who finds himself in the same dilemma?

I'm trying to figure out if Dean is more upset because Cas didn't come to him for help in the first place - choosing Crowley over him - that has huge character/canon implications (even shipper ramifications to do with jealousy)

... OR if it is just the basic fact that Crowley is the kingpin of hell and you don't do deals because if you do the everything goes to shit.

Yet ... it was such a deal with the same demon that helped them stop the Apocalypse in the first place ... see?? I can't reconcile Dean's, Sam's or Bobby's reaction here. ::flails::

I can see them being pissed about purgatory and about the deceit and obfuscation ... but Crowley??? Really?

HELP!
8th-May-2011 06:14 am (UTC)
You're welcome! :)

The relationship between Cas and the boys (and even Bobby) is complicated. And I think Show likes to show us that friends and loyalty and all that stuff isn't easy...

Crowley is interesting in that he's never really come across as the "full on" big bad. But after seeing some of the stuff he's been getting up to I think he really is rather evil. Everything he does is for his own gain. Helping the boys with the apocalypse was more about him wanting Lu back in the cage.. not because he cares in any way for them.

He is now using Cas - but Cas needed him - so yeah. Maybe they are both using each other.

Dean knows this is a slippery slop. He's seen what happens when that path is taken and I believe he genuinely does not want Cas to fall victim to that.

The boys may indeed have done exactly what Cas is now doing and that's why they KNOW it's not the right thing to do. I didn't feel like they were condemning Cas as such. Disappointed, deceived, betrayed etc. but I think they know exactly why he chose that path.

I think they also see Crowley as totally evil and probably don't want Cas being in league with him. Is that what you mean? Why are they pissed that Cas is working with Crowley. I think it's the same pissed that Dean was when he knew Sam was working with Ruby. You just don't do that. It's hypocritical in some ways because Dean did when he made a deal for Sam's life. But Dean has learned his lesson. (I think!)

8th-May-2011 09:38 pm (UTC)

Thanks for trying to soothe my conflicted brain! :) ...Show really does love to torment us and there are never any easy answers. I definitely see parallels between Dean's reaction to Sam and Ruby and now Cas and Crowley. The level of hurt and betrayal is being brought about by a lot of the same triggers.

I guess it's still hard for me to see Crowley as the uber-bad guy because he did give Bobby back the ability to walk and he didn't have to do that. For that matter, he didn't have to give him back his soul either if he really wanted to be a prick about everything.

I think what was itching at my brain the most was that I thought the boys and Bobby should be more upset over the plan to find and open Purgatory, and all the lying, rather than being consumed and shocked over Cas working with Crowley, but I'm starting to see it all adds up to the same thing anyway.

And what I can really see after giving it some thought is that Dean is more upset with Cas for deliberately deceiving him. Trust is such a HUGE thing for our boy, and Dean trusted Cas to the nth degree. To have that ripped away is devastating. At least when Sam chose Ruby he was all hopped up demon blood, what's Cas's excuse?

Oh Show!!!! :D :D :D
8th-May-2011 06:44 am (UTC)
Though why did Sam not have a hand print?

Maybe the hand print would have shown if Sam had come back WITH soul?...

I'm very much with you on what you said about this ep.
But since there was so much talking, I had some difficulties understanding everything (the ep, not your post :P), language-wise. (Best excuse to watch again, haha.)

Like you, it took me a moment to understand how they presented this ep and then loved to get finally an insight on what's going on with Cas. *hugs Cas, cheers him up and straightens out his messed up wings* ;)

(most edited comment since I'm still asleep me thinks. lol)

8th-May-2011 08:16 am (UTC)
Hey honey!

yeah... someone suggested above that there was no hand print because no soul. I can buy that. I actually think that they just didn't think about. If Sam had worked out with a handprint on his bod it would have been obvious who got him out.

There was indeed a lot of talking. I was really confused about why they were "telling" us the story rather than showing us. And then the penny dropped. It made it interesting I think... though maybe not for everybody.

Awww... poor cas. Damaged wings for sure!

*hugs* you.
