This is it! The mid-season finale! Are we ready?
Oh my God so Sam was mostly dead so Dean did a deal with a fallen angel called Ezekiel to fix Sam from the inside out but the angel doesn’t seem to be making Sam any better and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and is stopping Dean from telling Sam the truth and holding Sam hostage as he emotionally blackmails Dean and Sam is duct tape and safety pins on the inside and what does that mean WHAT DOES THAT MEAN and Castiel is now a human called Steve and he’s on the run from the angels and living in a gas and sip and Crowley is locked in the dungeon of the bunker jonesing for blood and Kevin is staying up for 4 days straight trying to crack the angel tablet not like literally crack it because we know that it can put itself back together and Crowley says there’s no sending the angels home but Crowley who the hell believes him and Abaddon is voiding all the demon deals and Hell is hellish but probably more than usual and did I mention that Sam is duct tape and safety pins inside and Dean tried to tell Sam the truth but Ezekiel blocked him and Dean can’t do anything about it because he doesn’t know if Sam will survive if the angel gets booted out and he can’t get to his brother because there’s an angel blocking the way and oh my God what the hell is going to happen and oh my poor boys how are you going to get through this one and and and
I always get a bit squirrely around the finales. But I have to say this one feels like there’s more at stake. More like, Sam and possible someone else…
Here’s the synopsis…
AN ANGEL WAR BEGINS — After a massive angel slaughter occurs, Sam and Dean arrive at the scene to investigate and are surprised to run into Castiel. While investigating, Castiel is captured and tortured. Meanwhile, Dean questions Ezekiel’s demands and wonders if it might be time to tell Sam the truth. Thomas J. Wright directed the episode written by Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner (909).
Thomas J. Wright directed, “Repo Man”, “Bitten”, “Goodbye Stranger” and “Clip Show”. We all know who Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner are.
To be perfectly honest, I could give a flying fudge if the angels all up and kill each other. What use are they? They’re nasty. Just nasty and the fewer of them on earth the damn well better as far as I’m concerned. I guess the issue is; how many unsuspecting humans would they take out in their petty angelic war. Like they’d care. Angels go home! There. I said it.
It sounds like Castiel decided life, as Steve was not for him! I’m assuming that the torture is because the angels think he knows the secret to getting them all back behind the Pearly Gates, or that he knows something about Metatron or that they’ve figured out that the key is Cass’ Grace…which I think he’s even thought out loud.
And what does it mean that Dean decides it’s time to tell Sam, he kind of decided that last week and look where that went…absolutely nowhere thanks to that angelic road block, Ezekiel. But hooray for finally questioning Zeke’s demands. Dean’s been walking on eggshells around that angel for too long. Time for some answers, you feathery asshat!
Note there’s no mention of Crowley or Kevin in this or Metatron, which is totally weird, because look…
And Kevin. Eeep. I’m worried for him…because…
Here’s the preview clip.
Oh man. So obviously Sam has been out of it through a lot of the drive. He’s realised he’s lost chunks of times and that he’s there but not there. Then Dean just keeps on digging that hole. It’s time he put the shovel down before I grab it and conk him on the back of the head with it! I literally groaned. GROANED when I watched this. Groaned. Would I lie? Yeah… now stop it.
I want to see the CHCH promo so bad and as soon as it pops up I will add it in…right about here..
See! Everyone please welcome the CHCH promo to our preview…
This will take time. Humph! Yes, yes, angel-boy tell us something you haven’t said before! Okay, so there really isn’t any new information in here. Except maybe some awkwardly positioned humour at the top… Humph.
Did we all see Jared’s tweet yesterday? The moose is excited. Me, I’m nervous as all hell. And think about me won’t you…while you’re watching and I’m at work having to wait about 6 more hours until I get home! Stupid time difference.
I really want this episode to be epically good, even if I know that means it’s going to be epically painful. I feel wracked with dread and excitement and I can’t remember the last time I felt this level of trepidation for a mid-season finale. Which is cool, yes?
We’ve all got theories. Feel free to toss them around – even if you already have. It’s good to talk about this stuff at a time like this. One thing’s for sure, we’re all probably going to need a bit of a group hug (and possible group therapy) after this one.
I’ve got a bad feeling about this. May the force be with us all.
I’ll just be over here in a glass case of emotion…
