"Cut off the head and the body will flounder."
Letâ€™s hope this little phrase means what we think it does because the boys have put all their eggs in Dickâ€™s basket. In fact the whole episode revolved around collecting the materials they need to take Dick down. And all of it is based on the assumption that if Dick dies all his minions will follow. This makes me nervous because thatâ€™s not how itâ€™s happened in the past. Killing an alpha shifter didnâ€™t mean all the shifters died off. And killing Eve didnâ€™t destroy all the monsters she created. But the tablet is all we have to go on and the boys are making their best educated guess. So thereâ€™s nothing else to do but go off to gather the three bloods.
Thank goodness one alpha escaped the prison before Castiel destroyed them all. Thatâ€™s not suspicious at all. Did anyone else wonder about whether or not Castiel actually took care of that situation? I had assumed he absorbed all their power in his quest to become god but how is the alpha vamp alive? Perhaps his miraculous escape was just necessary to the plot line and in all honesty, thatâ€™s fine with me. Taking liberties like that is sometimes inevitable. Iâ€™m just still feeling a little suspicious about that whole situation. Maybe Iâ€™ve still got some trust issues of my own with Castiel.
I was very interested to see Sam and Deanâ€™s reaction to the fact that Crowley didnâ€™t know Castiel was alive. Meg had told them that Crowley didnâ€™t know but Iâ€™m guessing they assumed she was lying. I still assume sheâ€™s lying. Iâ€™ve got all kinds of trust issues today! The thing is that Crowley is going to ask where Sam and Dean got the blood of a fallen angel, right? It seems impossible that theyâ€™ll be able to keep it a secret. So why did they bother? Maybe Crowley wouldnâ€™t have helped if he knew Cas was involved. But he will find out at some point and Iâ€™m curious and excited to see a Castiel and Crowley reunion. I donâ€™t know what it is about Mark Sheppard but he has a way of brining scenes to life. Iâ€™m so happy heâ€™s around to be his snarky self again.
Dick has taken things to a whole new level now. With the purchase of Sucrocorp it wonâ€™t be long before the majority of the population is infected. We had figured that the humans would be fairly easy to deal with though. But the thing that really threw me for a loop was how the additives were also meant to kill any creature that has a taste for humans, with the exception of the leviathan, of course. That was very tricky on Dickâ€™s part. That means killing the monsters wonâ€™t be any trouble and we saw last week how easily leviathans can kill angels. So basically, the leviathans are capable of wiping out just about every living thing on the planet. Talk about all-powerful. Too bad theyâ€™re allergic to borax.
On top of all the leviathan-related drama Bobby has decided to go all vengeful spirit on us. Possessing a maid is clearly crossing a line. His random outbursts were one thing and that alone already had Sam and Dean worried. But once they find out heâ€™s riding this poor girl theyâ€™re definitely going to have to do something. I was hoping that if/when Bobby left it would be on his own terms but Iâ€™m not sure I see that happening now. I was happy to hear Sam changing his tune a bit though. A few weeks back he seemed like he was trying to justify keeping Bobby around which made me uncomfortable. It just doesnâ€™t fit the mythology weâ€™ve come to know over the years. And the last thing I wanted was for this issue to become another wedge between Sam and Dean but for now it seems like theyâ€™re on the same page. What do you guys think will ultimately happen to Bobby?
What did you all think of this episode? Are you happy with the way everything is coming together? Were you as creeped out by the alpha vampâ€™s pet children as I was? Thereâ€™s still a lot to accomplish in the season finale assuming the leviathan will not be joining us next season. They still need to collect Crowleyâ€™s blood and the bone of a righteous man. Many people were throwing around the idea that the bone would come from Sam or Dean. It wouldnâ€™t be the first time Dean was described as a righteous man. And Sam has gone through something of a rebirth with Castiel taking his satan-vision from him. What do you think? Are either of these guys still a possibility? Personally, I think they may go another way; a little research and your standard grave desecration. But once they have all the necessary materials, what is the next move? Iâ€™m assuming itâ€™s a spell and Iâ€™m hoping it can be done at a distance but that wouldnâ€™t be very much fun, would it?
There were some really great lines in this episode. Please fill in any blanks for me!
First thing first: I cannot wait to see Baby next week! Also, Dean was rocking that leather jacket, was he not?
Dick: â€œKeep Americans living longer and tasting better.â€
Dean: â€œI have read this more times then the playboy I found in dadâ€™s duffle.â€
Bobby: â€œIâ€™m in the veil. My Brad Pitt days are over.â€
Dean: â€œDonâ€™t say pie.â€
Sam: â€œDefinitely pie.â€
That was one awesome fire trick that Crowley used. But I have to agree with Dean - â€œa piece of paper would have worked.â€
Dean: â€œIâ€™m gonna go in to toxic shock. I need my road food.â€ I would have loved to see Dean actually eat some produce.
Dean: â€œI canâ€™t live on rabbit food. Iâ€™m a warrior!â€
â€œThis is for hurricane Katrina, you said?â€
Emily: â€œWhatâ€™s a Kardashian?
Dean: â€œItâ€™s just another blood sucker.â€
â€œYou get a trophy in Stockholm syndrome.â€ Seriously. That whole situation was so creepy!
â€œPac Manâ€ and â€œTrue Bloodâ€
Alpha vamp: â€œSee you next season.â€
Dean: â€œLooking forward to it.â€
