Note: My biggest fear about this episode is that it would start another freefall into despair. Since it didn't, I'm one happy glamper. Sue me. I like Supernatural. I like season 7.
Previously we were Ridin' the Storm Out (with REO Speedwagon no less). LeviaCas reinterpreted the Creature from the Black Lagoon, things died, the Impala roared, spells went awry, Lucifer became scary, Sam went nuts, the warehouse scene rocked, Frank is nuts, Amy split the fandom, Mensa Monster was my favorite, the special effects budget went to Leviathans, Bobby was smart, Crowley stole the scene(s), Dick was, Bobby figured out LeviaPlan and got shot for it, Dean denied, "Idjits" became sad, and things forever changed on Supernatural (maybe). Have to say all the references to Sam's hellucinations give me hope this is all in his head. I love Denialand.
A smarmy voyeur guy watches a truck stop hooker try to seal the job and since I only care about Bobby right now, I'm impatient. Just die already. Probably Evil Waitress makes small talk as Voyeur leaves a tip to go after Hooker. Yeah, we get that Hooker is eeevvilllll so Voyeur becomes Probably Dead Hunter (PDH). Appropriately tense music plays as PDH walks around some trucks (And we're walking….) and runs into….Definitely Evil Waitress. PBH is "a little cobble wobble" (snickers) from the drug DEW slipped him. She's all cat eyes and fanged buck teeth. In other words awesome! She knocks him out. "That's for the cr***y tip." Ha! I like her. The title card explodes in LeviaGoo.
Next week: We travel back in time where Eliot Ness appears as a hunter. Woo hoo, given that Eliot Ness is Nicholas Lea. Jason Dohring is the god of time that makes it happen. Have I said how much I love the casting this season?
Best moment - Ugh, this is always hard. I choose Frank laying it on the line to Dean, but there's a lot to choose from.
Best line - "Fine, but you know what, on one condition. If Frank is just spinning his wheels, then you bail out on crazy and come meet me." Normally I'm all about the funny lines, but this one hit me hard. Sam is worried about Dean's revenge obsession and it seems dead on accurate as something Sam would say to me.
Other great lines: "Sweetie pop."
"I will frisk you."
"I could use your help. Call me."
"I'm not going to quit. It's not even an option. I'm not going to walk out on my brother."
"Relax. It's a field not the Death Star."
"You know it's going to be a little difficult to set up surveillance if there's uh surveillance everywhere."
"I call it being professional. Do it right with a smile or don't do it."
" My dad's a pretty great hunter and your brother's the size of a car so, so how'd this thing get them both?"
"I just wanted to tell you that you are kind of amusing for an old man."
"It's nice to walk away from someone and feel like they could be okay."
Best use of a mute button - Dean and Krissy spat to ever increasing screechiness levels
Best use of a Kleenex - Dean practices his professional smile
