When I last left off profiling the words of wisdom spouted by our intrepid hero those many months ago (dodges flying tomatoes), Dean had just sort of sold his soul to a demon in order to bring Sam back from the dead. Talk about a perspective changer. Dean’s sharp tongued lines went from snarky in season one to edgier in season two, so season three was bound to be different. I would say less Dean’s comments were less “woe is me” and more bravado and smut, all to hide the reality that he was due for “Dean Winchester meet and greet” in Hell and apparently had to learn something known as the “Hellfire Rumba.” That’s right, no more boundaries.
The Kids Are Alright:
Dean is still pulling the “final wish” card with Sam, even though he’s got about 11 months left on the deal. So, why not truck off to a motel in rural Indiana that has the only pine trees in the state and some very flamboyant style, all under the premise of looking up an ex-lover that gave him the night of his life. After all, she’ll want to hook up with him eight years later. Sam is skeptical, but Dean isn’t worried. It’s that new perspective thing.
"Come on, smile, Sam. God knows I'm going to be smiling after 24 hours with Gumby girl. Gumby Girl…does that make me Pokey?"
Oh, said lover apparently has an eight year old son. Who looks like Dean. Who acts like Dean. Who is a carbon copy of Dean. Even though it’s denied he’s the dad, Dean has to take charge anyway, since the boy has been growing up without that father figure. Leave it up to Dean to find the right words to defend himself to Lisa when the bully must go home to ice down.
"What? Someone had to teach him to kick a bully in the nads."
The bizarre tale of fairy tales gone wrong has already involved a gruesome three little pigs massacre, a homicidal grandma in the woods, a Cinderella being chained up by her stepmother and a woman being mauled by a wolf like creature. Sam’s going to deal with the person causing this. So what’s Dean’s task?
"I'm gonna go stop the big bad wolf. Which is the weirdest thing I've ever said."
Red Sky At Morning:
Bela doing MOTW plot exposition. Boring! Leave it up to Dean to break the dull rhetoric. When Bela talks about the "Hand of Glory," Dean can strangely relate.
"A Hand of Glory? I think I got one of those at the end of my Thai massage last week."
The only worthwhile part of the ridiculous museum plot twist is seeing Sam and Dean in tuxes. To say Dean is a fish out of water is an understatement. Bela is charmed, that’s for sure. “You know, when this is over, we should really have angry sex.”
(After thinking hard) "Don't objectify me."
Dean is on a kamikaze mission. It’s probably that inching toward death thing. Sam doesn’t like it. So what does Dean say when he doesn’t like that Sam doesn’t like it? A mouthful.
“What do you want me to do, Sam, huh? Sit around all day writing sad poems about how I’m going to die? You know what, I’ve got one. Let’s see, what rhymes with ‘Shut up, Sam’?”
