Poll #2011057 10.22 episode reaction

I thought 10.22 was:

Awesome! Intense and everything I expected from the penultimate episode.
25(40.3%)
Pretty good! The great stuff overshadowed the not so great stuff.
19(30.6%)
Ok. Not everything I hoped for, but still not entirely bad.
8(12.9%)
*meh* Aside from one or two moments, I was unimpressed.
5(8.1%)
Nope. Nope. Haven't we been here before?! Time to change the record. :(
5(8.1%)




This might not work, but I'm keen to try it. I have a heap of thoughts about this episode. So many I'm not really sure where to start. So, instead of writing it all down, how about you share what you thought and we can chat about it? OR ask me a specific question and I'll answer it. That way the conversation will become the episode reaction. If that makes any sense (if not, I'll write something up later…*g*).

I adore talking about the show and accept the individual responses to it. I won't harsh your squee, nor will I spew rainbows over your discontent. At the moment I'm all over the damn place about the episode. I could squee and I could bitch. I saw brilliance and I saw major fail. I'm just…what is this show?! How dare you make me care so much when I see through your contrivance.

In other words…I need to talk!

I think I'm the only person in fandom who enjoys watching Sam and Dean at odds. Especially Dean being such an utter shit to his brother at Charlie's pyre. That made it count for something, not just a bitchy/pissed off remark, and Sam was properly hurt.

I think I'm also the only person who doesn't find homicidal maniac Dean hot. Scary as fuck, which is fine by me. When he took out the entire Styne clan, I was a happy camper. Bunch of badly written/acted douchebags. The scene between Dean and Cy might have been an anvil, but it was a cool anvil. Dean kills a kid in cold blood! Way cool!

Why are people complaining that Sam doesn't have a voice? He's opening up and talking about things on the show that go back years. He's talking about his time on demon blood when he says he's been alone and scared and messed up, that was my take. When he snaps at Crowley that Crowley is a monster and has killed people Sam loved, that's also reaching back at least to S8. It seems to me that Sam has been filling in a lot of blanks, both for himself and the show's history.

My major problem was that the Stynes kicked down the door of the "impenetrable" bunker that you can only open with a magical key. Still, it was worth it for that shot of Dean standing in the doorway with dead eyes and covered with blood.

YES! I had a problem with that. What about the secrecy of the door, its impenetrability, the wards, whatever - and boom they're in??? Oh I was so sad if that stuff was going to get brunt though, especially Dean's tattered family pic.

ha! You might well be!

I can't say I find him that hot, but definitely engaging. I love that we are now seeing a single minded and focussed Dean. I loved the shock of when he killed Cy - I wasn't convinced he was actually going to do it. A great indicator that he has completely turned.

I feel that the last few episodes have finally given Sam some POV but, to me, it feels so late in his overall story in the last 3 seasons. I am glad he mentioned the moments he's been out there. I confess to not initially knowing exactly what he was referring to - but I was reminded after a post on twitter. I mean, I recall HEAPS of times Sam has been alone and scared, but couldn't recall when Dean was actually there for him (Dean's act last season still weighs heavily in my thoughts when I think of the show). I think he was referring to Swan Song and maybe even "Stone number one". At the very end of Sam's demon blood days Dean was there for him (well, tried to be but it was too late).

It seems to me that Sam has been filling in a lot of blanks, both for himself and the show's history.

Yeah, I agree there has been some nice re-calls. I am still hoping something comes out of what happened to him last year, but I am happy enough that there have been some nice moments given to Sam recently.
