Dark Side of the Moon

The CW ©2010 The CW Network, LLC. All Rights Reserved

Dean went to hell for four months while Sam stayed on earth.  But what about heaven?  What is it like?  Who’s up there?  What goes on there while Dean and Sam fight against the Apocalypse?  Dean and Sam find out the hard way when two hunters shoot them dead in their beds.

Dean finds himself reliving some of his best memories in what he believes is a dream.  He wakes up in his car listening to “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” on the radio.  He finds a young version of Sam lighting fireworks, interacting with him as if Dean is also a kid again.

Castiel soon contacts Dean and tells him that he is in fact dead and must find Sam.  Their mission is to find Joshua in heaven’s garden, the one angel who talks to God.

Both Dean and Sam travel their way through old memories, finding out that one man’s heaven is another man’s hell, as the promo for the show goes.  Sam’s greatest memories are Dean’s childhood nightmares. 

Zachariah is after them and eventually finds and corners them in one of Dean’s memories of his mother.  They are saved by Joshua, the angel that they were looking for.

Unfortunately, Joshua has bad news.  He tells the boys that God doesn’t care about them or the Apocalypse and to stop looking for him.  After hearing this shocking news they are returned to earth, alive again.  Castiel takes the news badly, looking up and calling God a son of a bitch.  He gives Dean is amulet back.  It was an amulet given to him by Sam long ago.  Dean looks at Sam,  then tosses the amulet in the trash, signifying how Dean’s memories were meaningless to Sam. 

This episode left me with mixed feelings.  I find it hard to believe that God himself wouldn’t care about the Apocalypse.  After all, it’s in the Book of Revelations.  The episode leaves you with a feeling of loneliness and the inescapable truth that Dean and Sam are truly alone in their mission to save the world.  This sad truth is written all over Castiel’s angry and saddened face.  Sam is the only character that seems to have any hope, trying fruitlessly to rally Castiel and Dean together with him.

This scene from Supernatural is a personal favorite of mine.  Dean gets his hands on a rabbit’s foot and saves the day with a pen and a remote.  Watch and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Courtesy of mataemonaraki on youtube.

Season 5 Premiere – Sympathy For the Devil

The show starts out with Dean and Sam still trapped inside the same room that Lucifer is rising from.  By means that are a mystery to both the audience and the characters, they are transported to a plane flying overhead, out of harms way.

Dean and Sam are back in their cars after their ordeal, listening ot the radio only to hear the beginning of what they believe to be the end.  Every station talks about an increase in disease, bombings, and other attacks around the world.

They ride to Chuck the prophet’s house only to find that their angel and guardian Castielle has been obliterated by an arch angel “like a water balloon of Chunky Soup.”

The gang of angels that had been working against them shows up at Chuck’s house but are quickly expelled with a spell Dean learned from Castielle.

At their hotel, Sam tries to apologize but Dean doesn’t let him.  Dean acts as if he can’t bear the thought of what just happened so he tries to treat it as he would any other hunt.

While this is going on, the devil prepares his prey in Delaware.  His temporary vessel is a man named Nick.  Lucifer plays with Nick by showing him images that remind Nick of the murders of his wife and child.  The devil appears as his wife and convinces him to let him be used as a vessel.

It’s interesting that the devil doesn’t choose an evil man, one that you would suspect.  He chooses a wounded man, one that viewed God as the true demon in his life, the one that forsook his family and him.

Chuck reaches out to his number one fan, Becky, to deliver a message ot the boys.  The message is the that the sword of Michael is in a castle on a hill of 42 dogs.

Bobby shows up to fill them in on Angel folklore.  Sam faces his need to confess his sin of starting the Apocalypse.  Bobby is in shock and horror and tells Sam to lose his number after they fix everything.  Out of shame, Sam leaves to do research only to return to a room of three demons and Dean.  While Sam was gone, Dean realizes that the castle on a hill of 42 dogs is the address for his dad’s storage unit.  After revealing this piece of  information, Bobby attacks Dean.  Bobby was possessed by a demon the whole time.  Instead of killing Dean, Bobby stabs himself.

After rushing Bobby to the hospital, Sam and Dean rush to the storage unit.  There they find the bodies of formerly possessed people littering the  floor and the gang of angels.  The most shocking revelation of all is revealed.  Dean is Michael’s sword, or vessel.

Dean turns down his offer to be an “angel condom”.  The angels torture them, hoping Dean will give in.  Castielle shows up and takes on the angels.  The angels are shocked because Cas was supposed to be dead.  Cas disappears after giving the boys a protection symbol without answering the question – who saved him?  Who put them on the plane out of harm’s way?

The show ends on a less than hopeful note.  Dean finally lets out what he’s wanted to tell Sam – that he can never trust Sam again.  The brothers are shown separated by the black pavement of the parking lot and the show ends.

Jensen Ackles on the Jimmy Kimmel Show

I’m a true blue “Acklemaniac.” This is an old interview of Jensen Ackles who plays Dean Winchester on the show Supernatural. He talks about the premise of the show and dodges the big “do you have a girlfriend?” question. Duh, if you look like that you’ve got to have a girlfriend. Or a boyfriend. But probably a girlfriend in Ackles’ case.

PS: I love how even Ackles laughs at the constant “No time for Matt Damon” joke at the end of EVERY Kimmel show.

Lucifer Rising

I have been on the edge of my seat this season as I watched the plot unfold on Supernatural. I can usually see where a story line is headed but when it comes to Supernatural, it’s not the case. Every single episode has literally had me on the verge of screaming at the screen. “No, don’t stop there!” And tonight took the cake. Sam and Dean were played by BOTH the good guys and the bad guys. Dean was tricked into believing he alone could stop the apocolypse. Sam was tricked into believing that he alone could kill Lillith and stop the apocolypse. The gap that was placed between them was what brought everything down on them. Even the phone message that Dean left for Sam was changed by Ruby. The message drove home Sam’s greatest fear – that Dean hated him and what he was and there was no turning back or redemption. They had been manipulated every step of the way. Only Castielle was honest in all of his actions, but his hands were tied by the laws of heaven. And when he finally got the guts to fight back, it was too late.

 

I really thought Dean would make it on time to stop Sam, but when I think about it further, I realize I only thought that because that would have been the “Happily Ever After” ending. It would also have been the end of the show. But with this amazing cliff hanger ending, I’m even more hooked and excited to see next season.

This entire season of Supernatural has been so well written, produced, acted, and directed. And unlike many shows out right now, Supernatural’s quality doesn’t decline with time. It takes on the attributes of a fine wine, maturing and developing, tasting sweeter with every new episode.

Waiting for next season will be painful. My imagination is going wild with what will happen next. How will the next season open? And how will Dean and Sam be able to send the Devil packing back to hell?

I only have one complaint and I’ve had it all season. Katie Cassidy should have remained in the show as Ruby. Genevieve Cortese did a find job but she couldn’t compare to Cassidy’s performance.

It will be exciting to see how the brilliant writers of Supernatural will construct the story around the Apocalypse, Revelations, and man’s last days on earth.

I love trying to guess the end of a story or TV show plot. And because so many follow a formula, I’m usually able to get it. But Supernatural is definitely not one of those shows. Last weeks show totally wowed me. I loved the inclusion of a prophet who was a broke writer, showing how the ordinary man can be destined for the extraordinary.

I didn’t expect Uriel to get killed or to be the one to turn on God’s angels. I thought his character would continue to develop more.

I didn’t expect angels would die by Lucifer’s sword. But I’m still perplexed by what happens when demons and angels die. Does that mean they cease to exist or go somewhere other than heaven or hell? It makes me scratch my head every time.

If they made a series of books out of the show, I’d be first on line to buy my copies.

I definitely didn’t expect Dean to be the one to actually open the first seal that can lead to the Apocalypse.

And I definitely love my Thursday night surprises every week.

Yellow Fever

Despite the promos for this episode, “Yellow Fever” was not as scary as I expected it to be. The opening scene is of Dean narrowly escaping the vicious jaws of…a yorkie?
Dean is infected with a ghost sickness that makes him hallucinate and get very anxious. He whines about how unfair it is for them to live a life of chasing ghosts and demons. He runs at the sight of danger rather than gets ready for battle. This episode was more for fun than for scares and it definately achieved it’s goal.
In the end, the ghost that started infecting people is defeated by being forced to relive his death. In a way, I felt sorry for the ghost. He died viciously and had to relive that experience to be freed from his bondage and to free Dean from the sickness. 5 stars for humor.
