Just look at this! Oh, man, is that cool. And it's also why the tea party is so creepy! She's serving blood. Ew! And as "Playthings" taught us, dolls are horrifying, especially ones bleeding from the nose.
Even the weather vane is creepy! Everything about this montage is creepy! Very dramatic sky there, too. This shot reminds me of the phrase "dark wings, dark omens" from "The Song of Ice and Fire" series where ravens acted as messenger birds.
This is ominous. What is he pointing at, and why does he want the tween vampire twins to go there? Plus, he has really long fingernails. That's pretty gross. Seriously, those things are longer than mine. But the angle here is just lovely.
The creepy girls again. How horrifying would it be if they turned out to be the alphas, that all vampires were descendants of two terrible girls? It would be like Lilith part 2. Really, what do you think this montage meant? Was it just directions to the next place they were recruiting? Or was it orders to meet somewhere after you had made at least one vampire yourself, cloning yourself, as it were? Is that the message, that one vampire becomes two?
I like this shot for a couple reasons. One, it was really great to see Dean kick some ass again. And not just kick ass. He destroyed a whole vampire nest by himself. He was a baby vampire, and he took out an entire nest, including a 600-year-old vampire. That is beyond badass. Second, I like the Dean shadow on the wall. It's very intimidating.
Oh, man, Dean killed the hell out of Boris. Look at the carnage! Isn't this just the most macabre shot? And thinking of the mechanics of this visual for a minute, how did Dean get that blood trail? Did he kill Boris, realize he was underfed and tired, and decided to sit down but wanted to drag Boris' head with him? Because that's certainly what it looks like. Vampire Dean is terrifying! And hot. Not gonna lie.
And if the episode wasn't brutal enough, we get this final scene to add to the heartbreak of Sam letting Dean get turned. Sam is trying to look earnest and honest about having Dean's back, but he's just so disconnected that it's not even convincing. It's like he's trying to figure out how Sam would normally act or how Dean wants him to act instead of having genuine reactions to the people and events around him. He's pretending his way through this.
But Dean knows, of course. And man, look at his face! Oh, he's just devastated. I'm sure he thought all of that deception was behind them after the real progress these two made last year. He's so hurt. I don't think Dean even knows what to do at this point he's so angry and disappointed.
Wow, that was a gorgeous episode, wasn't it? So pretty. What did you guys think of the episode? Did you love the alpha montage as much as I did? This show really does an amazing job with their montages. They just put so much thought into them. Does anyone else think of the movie "Team America: World Police" every time they hear the word montage?
