How do you rate 11.04 "Baby"?

Did Dean call Sam, "Buddy" twice or was that my wishful hearing?

Hmm, I'm not sure. I watched it again today and I can't say I noticed. I'll listen for it on my next watch! :)

The boys chatting in the car and then sleeping was like putting on comfy slippers.

That's how the whole epi felt like for me. The boys on the road, having a good time, felt like old school SPN to me. With the added bonus of the amazing point of view of Baby. I loved seeing all the BTS pics of the filming process the crew posted on twitter, and hearing the boys talking about how they filmed it. This episode was special indeed!
I voted "Awesome" :)

Honestly, give me fan service any day if it means getting (nearly) an entire episode of Sam and Dean. <3

So much THIS!!

I absolutely loved the first half of the epi and its "day in the life" feeling. I felt like the second half with the motw story dragged a little bit, but I enjoyed it more on my re-watch. Dean fighting the nachzehrer had a lot of comedy moments, and I loved what you said about Baby assisting the boys on their adventures. It really felt like she was "swallowing" all these objects just to make them available later, when they needed them. Yay Baby! :D

I also feel (and hope!) this is a reset on their relationship.

I hope so too! It felt like it. This epi was a breath of normalcy for them. Seeing them laugh and sing felt like they're not completely, irrevocably broken. Sam having sex after all these years was a sign of it as well, I think. I think this supports your theory about Sam in 11.02. Sam curing himself (from an uncleanness in the biblical sense, no less) and thus taking control back from what has been done to him must really have helped with his self-esteem, so much indeed, that he doesn't need to stay a virgin anymore. For me, it felt like Sam hung on to that virginity pledge from Rock and a Hard Place cos he wanted to feel "pure", since deep inside, he still felt tainted. And who can blaim him with all the non-con sh*t going down in his life (Yellow eyes and demon blood, Lucifer and the Cage, Gadreel...)

I like that Sam's visions are still a mystery. Sam seems to think that they might come from God. I'm a bit afraid that they might come from Lucifer (*meep*)...

All in all, I'm still excited for this season. I love how they can still surprise us with epis like that. It was a nice change from the usual episodes and I love that Jared and Jensen are so proud of Show being able to do that :)

P.S.: I'm pretty sure that the lot where Dean cut the nachzehrer's head was the one with the old Impala Jensen posted about on his Facebook some time ago. And we could see the old car in some scenes, in addition to current Baby. I think that was the first time ever where we saw two Babys on screen at the same time! Kinda meta, eh? :)

I did too! I watched it again the next day and enjoyed it even more. :))

Oh, how interesting! I thought Dean was just joking with Sam (and perhaps referring to the time Sam DID lose his virginity in the back seat of the Impala - even though I don't think Sam would have done that). Hmmm, so yeah. Maybe it was from then. I never though to that.

But yes. I think it could definitely be read as taking back some control and feeling confident to "share" his body. Ooh, good thinky.

hee, so much of this show is meta!

And I am excited about this season because it looks like Sam has been included in it more that the past 2 seasons. But, that might just be my way of looking at it...;D

I'm just going to drop some squee and run!!! Because there wasn't a single minute that I didn't love about this ep!!! ♥

(I'm loving Sam's visions - God? Lucifer? Young John could maybe suggest Michael? Love the mystery, and the idea that Sam mentioned about Dean getting Darkness visions and Sam the opposite of the Darkness visions!)

I'm loving all of the Sam stuff so far this season! Man, I hope they can keep that up! :D

Lots of squee to be had by all! <3

I totally forgot to mention Jesse! How much fun her and her GF were having while joyriding and popping wheelies in the Impala. @@ if dean only knew...LMAO. That scene was even funnier on rewatch!
1st-Nov-2015 12:13 pm (UTC)
That scene was even funnier on rematch!

I agree! The first time I was terrified they were going to damage her - or steal her. When it's known as purely a joy ride, it's so much more fun tot watch! Also - lucky girls! :)

The level of love coming out of fandom for this episode is making my heart kinda ache, in a great way :D
1st-Nov-2015 12:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it's been wonderful! :D

Loved this ep to BITS. You don't even know how big the smile on my face was throughout. As much as I adored the Day in the Life segment of the episode, the MotW was equally as important as well as the curing of the ghoulpires because it served yet another callback to days past - "SAVING PEOPLE (when did THAT happen last), hunting things." They even focused on the woman and her family as the Impala left them. I thought it was all very carefully thought out and it was worth it. The whole ep really made my heart happy.

I agree! I enjoyed the second half more the second time around. I always love MoTW episodes and I love that they got to save some people! All round great ep! :D

Honestly I know I'm quite late chiming in here (being sick sucked :P) but I just want to say "THIS" to your whole post. I really enjoyed this episode. So much to love. :)

Hey. I'm sorry to hear you've been sick. It was a great episode - full of bromance. :))
3rd-Nov-2015 08:56 pm (UTC) - Wow...
My favorite episode so far- and I have a LOT of favorite episodes! What everyone else said- though that was not my mental image when the idea of a car wash scene was leaked! :D I guess I'll just have to keep running my own mental movie...
4th-Nov-2015 01:29 pm (UTC) - Re: Wow...
Haha! yes. Mental movie is all we have!

It's certainly one of my fave eps for a while. I loved the Impala pov and seeing so much of the bros. It makes me want more of it!
