Here is this scene again from two different angles. Cass here is awash in the light streaming through the window, which is kind of fitting for an angle, no?
And here the boys are in the shadows a bit, Sam most of all, with his face partially obscured by the darkness. It's really lovely. Once again, Serge Ladouceur is a master!
This was a fantastic stunt, wasn't it? And what a long jump. This is my favorite angle of the fall. I love all the shattered glass around them, mirroring the season title card. In still like this, you can really tell that's the stunt double, but in real time, it wasn't as obvious.
Ding dong, the witch is dead! Okay, we all know by now that I don't like the Charger, so I was pretty happy when it got crushed in such spectacular fashion. And it means that Sam will be back in the Impala where he belongs, so don't say you all weren't a little happy about it, too!
Look at this amazing shot! We've got the back lighting once again, another bannister, and a frog! That frog is a star in the making, I'm telling you. And I am loving all this light shining through windows, though I'm not sure where that is coming from since it's dark out. Still, it really makes for dramatic images when you have light streaming in like that.
Look at this noir shot: low angle, high-contrast lighting, shadows on the character and the wall, yet more light streaming through a window. Gorgeous. Though, I am sad about Demore Barnes not being Raphael's vessel anymore. I liked him a lot. He was very menacing, and when he entered the room, you could feel the power. Maybe Raphael can call in some favors a la Anna and get his old vessel back? Pretty please?
This is so pretty. It's so stark and beautiful. And how many times has this image meant death for a spirit?
This is so Dean's trunk: random things strewn around, slightly dirty. And the wendigo Halloween mask. He's obviously proud that Ben went as a wendigo, probably even helped him make that mask. The fact that he still has it in the trunk speaks volumes. Let's consider the timeline: 6.01 was a year after 5.22, which isn't specified exactly as to the date, according to the Super-Wiki. But let's assume 5.22 was sometime around when the episode aired, so May. That means the season premiere happened around May a year later, and this episode is probably set a couple weeks after. Since Halloween is in October, of course, that means Dean had the wendigo mask in his car for six or seven months, from October to May. That is adorable.
Here is the classic Impala shot to end an episode. It's nice to have that back, too! And this one is particularly lovely, with the logs in the river and the woods and the city in the background.
Phew, there was a lot of pretty in this episode! That's not unusual for this show, of course. What were your favorite moments of the episode? Did you notice how noir-ish it was, too?
