WARNING!!! If you haven’t seen “Freaks and Geeks,” stop reading now. There will be discussion about the episode and possibly the preview for next week, so do not venture forth until you have seen the episode. Also, you must gather your party before venturing forth. (The first person to get that reference without looking it up online gets a virtual cookie from me!)
Clearly, that was a filler episode. I think we all guessed that going into it. And it was fine. It didn’t blow my socks off, but I’m not horribly mad at it. There’s basically nothing to speculate about because we didn’t get any new info regarding anything, so I’m going to posit a crazy new theory based on last week’s episode, “Goodbye Stranger,” and then do a quick bullet point and then set you all free to comment on the episode yourselves.
“Behold now the behemoth”
I know this theory goes back to the last episode, but I’ve been thinking about it and a few things keep rolling around in my head. Why did Naomi have to turn away from Castiel when he went all celestial light? If she’s an angel, she shouldn’t need to. And if you look at the scenes in the CIAngel area, sometimes she is almost transparent. You can see the walls through her. So what if she isn’t an angel? I’m already on board with the idea that Crowley isn’t an angel, so what if he and Naomi are the same type of being? What if they are something new that we haven’t met yet, neither angel nor demon? It would explain how they know each other. My new theory: they are behemoth. We’ve already had leviathan, so why not behemoth? Let’s say they are this creature. Behemoth are traditionally the giant, overwhelmingly powerful beasts of the earth and land. Leviathan were the same but for the water. With leviathan out of the way, maybe behemoth sense that it’s their time to rule the earth. So they’ve been planning for this and lying in wait, infiltrating heaven and hell. Now they are collecting the tablets to try and seal heaven and hell and rule the earth themselves.
Job 40:15-24 has a passage describing the behemoth, and it contains this interesting line: “His is the first of God’s ways; only his Maker can draw His sword.” If God is the only thing that can kill them, it would explain why Crowley is so resiliant. Or maybe that spear Dean found in the MoL bunker last week will play a part, too. The Spear of Destiny. Sounds like it’s gonna come into play at some point.
- If I had a dollar for every guy who tried to get me to make out in a car so I could be the bait for a vampireâ€¦
- Gray shirt on Dean! That’s new. Also, that looks good!
- I like that even though Sam gets shot down pretty much every time, he STILL tries to get Dean to talk. I really admire that. And I like that Sam asked if Dean was okay, too. He said physical with the beating and everything, but that’s not all he meant.
- Oh, baby hunters got caught on tape. Rookie mistake.
- Yes, sheriff, do what Dean says because he is mean when he is threatening.
- High-tech hunting with the cameras and the med kits and the dead-man’s blood darts. That was pretty neat. However, even the best technology doesn’t replace instinct and doing your legwork.
- Of course Dean knows about temperamental teenagers. I mean, Sam, right?
- Victor was a typical dad, though, living his fantasy out of being a super hunter by training the kids to do it.
- Blue van. Not conspicuous at all.
- Lots of old-school monster references tonight, wendigo, rugaru, vampires.
- Sentiment is making the kids sloppy. Got to think with your brains and not just your hearts, kids.
- Hey, I’m Sam. I’m just gonna be a giant man walking around in broad daylight with a huge knife. Should blend in perfectly.
- Dean disarming Aiden was damn sexy, though.
- Hallelujah, a reference to the Leviathans and the havoc they wreaked.
- Oh, hey, I’m a vampire. Why don’t I just talk about all the people I killed in a room full of hunters? That’s gonna end well for me.
- Victor, wow, you had people KILLED to get the kids into hunting? That is so not cool, man.
- NICE SHOT, KRISSY! Dart to the eye. Ouch.
- Okay, pulling the trigger on a empty gun was pretty good. She got it out of her system and yet didn’t actually kill Victor, which she would have regretted down the line.
- Let’s be real, if Victor had done this while trying to found the greatest hunter generation once, he probably would have tried to do it again.
- Ha ha ha, Aiden is so threatened by Dean.
- Can I just LOL at Dean talking about shutting the gates of Hell as a family walking the dog is like 50 feet away?
- Wow, doesn’t saving innocent people feel good? It sure does! Saving innocent people is the best! Unless you’re an innocent person who’s been possessed by a demon. Then you’re shit out of luck.
Re: the preview: An innocent soul has to be saved from Hell? Sam’s gonna get Adam, right? RIGHT?!?!? I really hope he gets Adam because that boy does not deserve to be down there.
And that is all I’ve got. Pretty short this week, but I really don’t have anything else to say. Thoughts? What do you all think of my new crazy theory? Behemoth could be fun, right?
