“The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.” ― William Blake
If you look at the story of Supernatural‘s episode “Breakdown” you can’t call it light reading. That is why I chose the word harvest because people were plucked up from the streets as food and sold on the black market. Since story was so brutal, my choice for the video is light hearted and sunny like Donna usually is as a character.
I actually like Donna as her goofy self, but in this episode I also liked her serious side. That is all due to Briana Buckmaster’s acting. I think these grim stories are needed in Supernatural but the comical side keeps it from geting too rough. Smiles have been lacking from the episodes lately but I hope that balance will be found again.

So come on Join In. Everybody.

Dean: You got up at 10:00 a.m. this morning. 10:00 a.m. You, Mr. Rise and Freakin’ Shine. And then you turned down pancakes.
Sam: I wasn’t hungry.
Dean: They’re pancakes. Y — Look, I know you’re in a dark place right now, okay? I mean, we lost Jack. Mom is… I think about ’em, too. All the time. But you can’t let it eat you up. Now look, when I was — when I was broken up, you were there for me. Well, I’m here for you now. And I’m telling you, the only way out of this is through. Now when everything goes to hell, what do we do? We put out heads down and we do the work. We’ll find Jack. We’ll save Mom, we will. But right now, Donna needs our help.
Clegg: How many monsters you think are out there, Sam? You know, if you — you had to guess.
Sam: Hundreds. Thousands.
Clegg: Ah. Add a zero. Actually, add two. See, those freaks that you and your brother chase, those are just the ones that can’t pass, either because they’re too mean or they’re too stupid, or both. But most monsters… hell, they could be your next door neighbor. They work a regular job, mow the lawns on a Saturday. And they need to eat, which is where I come in.
Dean: You were a little tough on Donna back there.
Dean: Just sayin’.
Sam: Was I wrong? I mean, when has knowing us ever worked out for anyone?
Dean: I mean, we save people, Sam.
Sam: Yeah, we also get people killed, Dean. Kaia, for instance. She helped us and she died for it.
Dean: Hey, look, I know you’re in some sort of a-
Sam: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, don’t — don’t… You keep saying I’m in a dark place, but I’m not, Dean. Everything I’m saying is the truth. It’s our lives. And I tried to pretend it didn’t have to be. I tried to pretend we could have Mom back and Cas and — and help Jack. But we can’t. This ends one way for us, Dean. It ends bloody. It ends bad.

Trivia and Minutiae
“Breakdown” may be a reference to the 1997 film of the same name starring Kurt Russell, about a husband whose wife is abducted by truckers.
Dean: Breaker, breaker 1-9, this is 67, the Midnight Rider. Looking for the 4-1-1 on my Alice in Wonderland.
Dean is speaking in the shorthand used by CB radio users. “Breaker, breaker 1-9” indicates Dean is about to broadcast on Channel 19 which is known as the trucker channel. “67, the Midnight Rider” is Dean’s handle or name, referencing the year of the Impala — 1967 — and the song “Midnight Rider” by the Allman Brothers Band. “411” means information. “Alice in Wonderland” is someone who is lost.
Later we also hear:
Felix: Breaker, breaker Midnight Rider. Felix the Cat here.
This is the trucker Felix whose handle is “Felix the Cat”. Felix the Cat is an animated cat, the first cartoon superstar who originated in 1919.
While not named in the episode, writer Davey Perez revealed that the name used to track the unnamed harvester’s actions in the script was “The Carver.”
