Nightsky's New Book!


 

Warning!  If you haven't seen "LARP and the Real Girl," read no further!  There will be spoilers aplenty, and this is the kind of episode you want to experience for yourself!


So, how much fun was that episode?  So much fun!  I loved it.  We got some nods to what has been happening lately with the main story, and that was just enough.  This episode was filler, sure, but damn, it was some good filler!  But since it was filler, I really don't have anything to theorize about or over-analyze.  So I'm just going to write this bullet-point style and talk about some of the fun things in the episode.
 

  • Felicia Day was, once again, fantastic as Charlie.  She should definitely pop up once or twice a season, don't you think?
  • Charlie and Dean are great together.  They really bonded this episode, and I can totally see them being close friends.  I mean, Dean was talking to her about his problems.  Dean!  Talking about his problems!  WILLINGLY!  That is huge.  Charlie should show up more often just for that.  I bet she can work her problem-talking skills on Sam, too.
  • How refreshing was it to have same-sex flirting/kissing that wasn't made fun of or exploited or fetishized or anything like that?  It was natural to the character and organic to the show, and it was great.  Good for you, Charlie.
  • That being said, Gilda (who I keep wanting to call Glinda) had the CREEPIEST skull costume.  Stupidly creepy.
  • My mother-in-law watched the episode with me, and she loved the sheriff at the beginning.  I have to agree with her.  He was fun.
  • "These kids today, with their texting and murder."  Ha!
  • I love how quickly Dean went from being really skeptical and antagonistic toward LARPing to really getting into it.  "I can wear costumes and swing swords and do military strategy?  YES!"  Dean would be a great LARPer.  As would Sam.  Sam could be the queen's bodyguard because who would dare challenge him?  He's huge!
  • I think Sam secretly loves to make Dean think he's gonna ruin all the fun and then agree to have the fun because it makes Dean even happier when he gets to do something he didn't think he would.  Sam really plays that up, and then lets his brother go wile because he knows how much Dean really loves to throw himself into these sort of things.
  • "Braveheart" speech.  "It's the only one he knows."  That was AMAZING!
  • HOLD!
  • How many of you caught the Dragonage shout-out to Felicia Day?
  • I will say, though, the one thing that bugged me was this: Charlie's life is in danger, Dean wants her to leave, she refuses.  Oh, so let's just have her walk through the woods ALONE.  No problem.
  • I hope Gilda turned Sam and Dean's guns back to guns because that was Dean's favorite.
  • Sam in a ponytail.  Yes.  Yes, indeed.
  • Dean in a wig.
  • Facepaint!
  • I also liked that Dean is reaching out to Sam and is trying to express that he knows Sam made a sacrifice staying in hunting, and that he appreciates it.  I wish they'd written that storyline a little better, but it's good of Dean to do that.  I wonder if he told Sam about breaking contact with Benny or not.
  • I am always amazed at what they get away with, gore-wise, on this show.  I'm generally not squicked by much, but I really couldn't watch the drawn and quartered scene.  That was horrible to me for some reason.
  • "They were from me, but they weren't from me me."  Sorry, man, but that kind of logic only works when the Winchesters use it.  Good try, though!
  • Dean busting out his gun and scaring the LARPers with it was such a Dean move.
  • Carrie Heinlein, Charlie's alias, sounds like a nod to Carrie Fisher from "Star Wars" and the Sci Fi author Robert Heinlein.  Did anyone else think that?
  • You just know Sam is gonna fix their FBI badges first thing the next morning.
  • Can you imagine the aftermath of that fake battle Sam and Dean led?  Those poor LARPers don't stand a chance against two gigantic guys who have actually trained in hand-to-hand combat.  It's gonna be a fake bloodbath.
  • "The pornstar?"  *epic bitchface*  "The poison."  "Oh."
  • Sam got choked by a suit of armor.  I count at least two inanimate objects he's been choked by, a lamp cord and armor.  That guy gets choked so often...  Is there some other inanimate object I'm missing, though?
  • I think Charlie put the crown on Dean's head because she wouldn't be able to reach Sam's.
  • HOLD!
  • I think Sam and Dean need to start policing eBay, make sure there aren't other actual spell books on there.  Or have Garth do it.  That seems like a task Bobby would have done (sob!) so now it's up to Garth.
What did you all think of tonight's episode?  Did you like it as much as I did?  Robbie Thompson is very rapidly ascending the ranks as one of my favorite SPN writers.  He's been pretty great so far.  I'm looking forward to his next outing!

(From Alice - These pictures are taken from my premium LED TV taken with a good cell phone camera, but still a bit primitive.  It should hold us over until the episode is available on iTunes).
