Sheriff Donna! Always nice to see her back with the boys :)

[She is a keeper!]
I like that Donna's a continued female presence on the show. And now she's a full-fledged hunter, per the boys. Three cases, she's more than qualified :) I felt bad for Doug, because she was seriously hard on him, but I have hope that they might get a bit more friendly now that they've cleared the air.

Also a bit happy that we visited Sam's clown phobia again. Not that I want to see him all weirded out by creepy men in make-up, but...yeah, that one tonight was very creepy. Considering this is a man that faced down the apocalypse and Lucifer himself, faced Death and angels and demons, and he's still creeped out by clowns? Adorable. [Ahem, Chester the Molester, though? Heavy-handed and subtle at the same time.]

Nice one-stop case. Go in, get the ghost, leave town before too many people die. The expression-less-ness of the bunny was really good, and I wished he could have stuck around a while longer. Sneak attack on Dean, Sam's quick "not a demon", it had to potential to be drawn out a bit more with more victims. But it was touching that the guy had to die before the mask released him, and then Donna contemplating the ramifications of their actions. Hunting's a messy business. By the end of this, I guess Donna can see why the Winchesters' lives are not all bright and sunny. Doug the First may have screwed her over, but at least she still has hope of a semi-normal life.

I still wanna know who is giving Sam the visions, and why the Cage. Torture sessions Sam can deal with flickering across his mind, but show him the Cage and he's messed up for real. Though Dean's constant "do it ourselves, we can beat this" mindset isn't really going to cut it this time. He's determined, but this is some serious power. And with Amara messing with Dean's mind, the boys are just not in a good mental place.

Two-week break before the boys return. Previews make it seem like another one-shot, but I wonder if it'll tie into the mythology without being obvious. Still, the plotline alone makes me excited ;)

Well, after a lot of missed initial appointments, a delay of one day of work, and listening to construction from Friday to Sunday, the roofers are finally done with my new metal roof :D

Next year I hope to do the vinyl siding, since it needs it and I want to change the color anyway. No issues with wifi signal or cellphone signal, as has been reported sometimes with metal roof replacement. And the guys cleaned up the property very well. That, coupled with a really good price, leaves them on my list of potential future work.

Looking forward to a rainstorm to hear it. Always like the sound of rain against a metal roof.

Learned a few tidbits in this week's SPN episode, and got a few more hints at what's to come. Amara is growing and changing...dangerous times ahead.

[Let"s break this down]
Cas: I like that he's out of the bunker, even though it was a nice break for a while. I don't think he's totally over the whole situation, nor that he won't have flashbacks again, but he's trying to get back on track. However, I wish he would just take care of Metatron. Not letting someone control you is one thing, but letting them go again is another. At least he has the demon tablet again? Maybe it'll do him some good.

Metatron: I want to care, but his presence is wearing thin. All I got out of this appearance was fight, fight, moan, moan, fight, fight, one piece of information. The same piece of knowledge could have been learned in other ways, like a book Metatron left behind. No need to drag him back out again. But if we do have to see him, I guess learning that Amara is God's sister is worthwhile.

Amara: Love the reveal on her. God's sister! So powerful! I keep hoping we'll see Chuck again. We'll have to wait and see. Also, I like how they're handling her evolution. She's growing and changing, but not in fast-foward. And that quiet danger is so very interesting. Always knew she would come into her own, though, and then Crowley would be sorry. Now she's on her own, ready to grow and meet her end purpose. Plus, she's got some serious sights set on Dean.

Crowley: Every single time Crowley tries to control someone, it ends badly. And, yes, he tried to play it this time so that he was a needed asset, but in the end Amara took control. Interesting to hear him exert his darker nature toward Dean. The time for being buddy-buddy is over. No more opportunities missed, he's ready to kill Dean. Alas, not happening this time.

Dean: The way he's dealing with Amara's control is interesting. He knows he needs to kill her, but he just can't. And she knows it. I wonder if, when she gets older, there will be more intimate contact. Can you imagine? But for now he's trying to resisist. The others around him can see right through this, though. He was not overpowered, he was taken in. Can't trust that it won't go wrong next time.

Sam: Very excited to see he's having visions of the Cage. Not that I want him to crack up, but the implications of the Cage and its inhabitants holds great potential. And who is giving him the visions? Young!Dean says Sam knows, but that's just so vague. Is it Lucifer? Chuck!God? Gabriel? (Hey, I hold out hope for him, too.) Great slow build on this one. I'm excited to see where it goes!

“Don’t get caught up trying to think you’re supposed to do more, or to think you’re supposed to please everybody. Take care of yourself.” ~ Jared Padalecki

I've been dealing with a stressful situation as of late that has caused me great anguish and torment. And I kept holding on throughout the situation in hopes that I could move past it, put it behind me and regain the positive outcomes I had once, but alas it was not to be. It got to be so bad this past week that I had to retreat to my parents' house for a four-day disconnection weekend and it helped a lot. I got to see family, remember the little things in life that are most important, and finally accepted that my own happiness is more important than trying to please everyone but myself and bury the hurt inside.

I deserve to be happy and I want to remind myself of some of the things that have made this year positive, banishing out the bad:

  • I've released my first novel and my first three novellas with three separate publishers

  • Currently I'm writing a novel that it outside my normal genre and am loving the evolution of the characters

  • I am loving my grad school journey and have come up with two potential thesis topics both related to fandom

  • My family is doing well, expanding, and my homeplace is one of the best places to be to just revel in the beauty of nature around you

Lizzie Borden took an axe...[and her legacy haunts the Winchesters.]
I really liked tonight's episode, mainly for the fact that it was back to old school hunting and old school banter. Dean recognizing Sam's fetish for serial killers, their brotherly bickering, and the love of being together in their element. So good! Very nice to involve Lizzie Borden's legacy into the case, giving Sam hope that he would get to see a ghostly serial killer. Alas, no luck for poor Sam. It was all a hoax, from the EMF readings to the electricity problems to the ghostly voices. But if you're going to run a B&B and museum about Lizzie Borden, then you've got to play the part.

But they weren't dealing with ghosts, but instead Amara's influence. It's interesting to consider the difference in victims, how Len was just empty but still had a conscience, but the babysitter was empty and happy to exact her brand of justice upon others. I liked how Len decided that, since Dean couldn't kill him, he would sacrifice his freedom for his own protection and the protection of others. Without a soul, he knows he's going to slip, so it's better for everyone if he were locked away. Sad, but probably the best option.

It's good that the boys got clued in to how fast Amara was growing up. Already looking like a 12 year old, it will only be a matter of time before she's fully grown and fully powered. Taking souls and leaving bodies in her wake, the Winchesters just have to follow the bloody path right to her door. That's coming soon, but Amara's hold on Dean might prove difficult. What power might she have over him? Looks like we'll soon find out!

The boys are on the same page, for the first time in forever. I hope that doesn't go away for a while.

Everything about this episode made me happy. My review notes are filled with "such a good ep!" "so good!" "love it!"

Because this 1967 Chevrolet Impala would turn out to be the most important car... no, the most important object in pretty much the whole universe.Collapse )
So much love for this episode. Considering who wrote it, though, I expected nothing less :)

I've had a stressful day, so getting some Winchester time was much-needed.

[Be honest, boys!]
So, some of it was a bit predictable - such as the baby growing at super-speed (hello, Lilith). However, the fact that Amara eats souls and that Crowley tempted her into his van with a stock of kidnapped women just waiting for her to eat their souls, well that was refreshing! But I do wonder what Dean will do when faced with Amara again. Can he kill her? Or will the Mark and their bond prevent that?

Also, the fact that Sam was so adamant about how they brothers have to change, take a new approach, and then turns around and keeps secrets (about the infection and about the visions)? Yeah, not really changing. But I am very excited about Sammy getting visions again. Not that I want him to be crippled with pain like he was when he had them before, but any Sammy powers are good for me. Also, I'm always happy when I get to see Smart Sammy in play. Burning the holy oil and purifying himself and then others was genius. I mean, he hasn't contained the outbreak just yet (though I hope he sent others out to continue it before retiring to the Batcave?)

Oh! I almost forgot about Billie. Nice entrance with the O Death singing. I still can't believe he's dead, though :( But it's interesting to note that the reason the Winchesters kept returning from the grave was because Death was having fun with them. Now that he's gone, their get-out-of-death-free card is cashed in. Next time, it's a one-way ticket to the Empty. Scary!

And apparently I have to mention Cas...I hope he gets a good storyline? I'm honestly more excited that Rowena's back next week than what effects Cas is suffering, but there's the potential of taking him to good places. Also, it was interesting to see the torture / Cas killing session. Sad that Hannah died, but I figure every angel has a target on their back, so I try not to get attached. (Well, except for Gabe, but that didn't work out very well.)

Onward to next week!

Supernatural Season 11 has arrived! And so has the Darkness.

[Dang It, Sam!]
So, I spent a lot of this episode in a state of confusion (especially at the beginning). What happend? What was real? Why is there a random lady in the middle of the Darkness? During the summer hiatus we were speculating on a good way to deal with the dark smoke overtaking the Impala and one suggestion was that one of the brothers went missing from the car. So, we got that...but it only lasted a minute :/ I guess a little is better than nothing? Though the implications of what the Darkness and Dean's connection is could mean bad things all around.

I do like the mirroring of the Darkness inflection with the Croatoan virus. However, unlike the former infection, this time Sam didn't come out clean. No more Lucifer game plan, this is all pre-dated and bad. I expect that Sam will find a way to cure himself and others, but I wonder how far it will go before that happens. Sad that he wasn't truthful with his brother, but at least they seem to be wanting to change their ways? Yeah, this might take a while. I'm hopeful that they'll be on the same side again, though. Let the brothers be united against a common enemy!

As for Cas and Crowley, I'm always going to be more interested in the King of Hell's journey than the angel's unless the writing improves on that front. Cas turns his back on Heaven, Heaven goes after him, Cas needs their help again...rinse and repeat. At least with Crowley we continually walk the line of "backing the one who serves his interests best." Here's hoping both characters get interesting and integrated storylines. I'm especially interested in the impact of the Darkness on them. The fact that either Lucifer or Michael was screaming in warning all the way from the Cage is chilling. This spells bad things, really bad things.

Now the question is what's going to become of that baby. Did they spend all that time trying to save it only to turn around and have to kill it? Though, with the Mark of Cain on the child, it might be impossible to kill. Same with the Darkness. Immortal mark, immortal being. Such exciting possibilities to come!

Welcome back, Winchesters. We missed you :)

While I'm waiting for my class readings to download, have some Peanut versions of the boys :)

Jared and Jensen (so happy, so carefree)

And then the Winchesters (so much weight on their shoulders)

Okay, that's all from me! See ya later!
