#SupernaturalSunday Season 2, Episode 5 Simon Said

So this was a controversial week in the Supernatural fandom. I hope to lighten things up by going back to an old-school episode. I guess it’s not really lighthearted fare since the first thing that happens is a well-known and respected doctor kills a sporting goods store owner and then himself. But “it’s okay”–it was one of Sam’s premonitions and hasn’t happened yet. The Winchesters hop into the Impala and race off to the roadhouse to try to stop it from happening. They want to see Ash so that he can look for signs of The Demon.

Dr Badass

While Ash is investigating, Jo not so nonchalantly plays some REO Speedwagon on the jukebox. Ash gets a match so the boys take off for Guthrie, Oklahoma. Jo seems a little disappointed.

Jo's disappointed

But never fear, Jo. Dean’s still thinking about you. In the car, he sings “Can’t Fight This Feeling”….

Dean singing

Nice work, Dean. 😉 Sam tells him they’re looking for Andrew Gallagher. I noticed from his info we share a birthday. Kinda cool. Anyway, Andrew’s mom died the night of his sixth month birthday in a nursery fire, just like Sam and Dean’s mom. According to the chick at a local restaurant, debt collectors are always looking for Andy but he manages to get rid of them.

Wendy

She tells them to look  on Orchard Street for a van with a barbarian queen on it. They easily find the van and soon they see Andy. Dean likes him because of the van and his way with people. 😉 As they watch, a guy on the street gives Andy his cup of coffee, just because he asked for it, it seems. Then, Andy stops to speak to the guy from Sam’s premonition. Sam follows the doctor to stop him from going in the store while Dean follows Andy.

Andy spots Dean tailing him and asks to take the car. Dean says, “Sure, man” and hops out, handing over the keys. Now we know there’s a problem!

Dean can't believe he left Baby

Meanwhile, Sam gets to the sporting goods store before the doctor and pulls the alarm. As the store is evacuating, he sees Andy drive by in the Impala. What the what?!

what the what

Meanwhile, the doctor gets another call and ends up walking in front of a bus and dying anyway before Sam can stop it.

Andy goes to the restaurant to see his “old friend” Tracy. There’s another guy, Weber, working there who seems to be Andy’s #1 fan but Andy ignores him. The Winchesters find the Impala, safe and sound with the keys still in it. Andy’s van isn’t too far away so the boys check it out. “This is…this is magnificent, that’s what this is,” Dean says. It doesn’t look like the lair of a killer.

Andy confronts them while they’re staking him out. When Sam starts to give him the usual spiel about how they’re lawyers, Andy interrupts and says, “Tell the truth.” Dean does. “We hunt demons. Demons, spirits, things your worst nightmares wouldn’t touch.” And then proceeds to spill everything, how Sam is psychic, like Andy, and they’re all a part of something terrible. Sam: “Dean, shut up!” Dean: “I’m trying!” But he can’t stop. He tells Andy everything. haha! Andy says to leave him alone. Dean says, “Okay” but the mind control doesn’t work on Sam.

He confronts Andy, demanding to know why he told the doctor to step in front of the bus. Andy says he didn’t. Sam has another vision. This time, a blonde woman is at the gas station. She gets a call on her cell and then sprays gas all over herself and sets herself on fire. Yikes. Hard to imagine a worse way to go. 😦

yikes

As Sam’s recovering from his vision, an ambulance races by so Dean goes to check it out. The woman is already dead. There was no heads up this time.

Sam sees that Andy isn’t the killer and considers his mind control a gift. Dean has talked to Ash and learned that the woman gave up a son for adoption on the same day Andy was born. The doctor was the woman’s doctor and oversaw the birth and adoption. Not just that but she gave birth to twins.

Andy’s twin was adopted by a family in the same state and now goes by Anson Weems. Andy recognizes him. He’s the guy who latched onto him, Weber. He has the same mind control gift. In the car on the way to find the evil twin, Sam has another vision. This time, it’s Tracy from the restaurant jumping off a dam.

Season-2-Episode-5-Simon-Said-supernatural-10650737-1280-720

It seems Weber/Anson doesn’t like anyone coming in between him and his brother. He’s taken Tracy to the dam and tells her she can fly. Luckily, Sam and Dean get there in time. Sam grabs Anson and puts tape over his mouth but he can still command using his mind. He tells Tracy to knock Sam out. 😦 He tells Andy he’s stronger and will make Tracy take the dive.

Anson

Anson tells Andy “the man with the yellow eyes” told him to do it this way. He appeared to Anson in a dream and told him he had big plans for him and that he was special. Anson also knows that Dean’s trying to sneak up and shoot him, despite Sam’s warning to stay away. He tells Dean to shoot himself, which he starts to do but Andy kills him first. When the police arrive, Andy convinces them that they saw Anson kill himself.

Sam says he was right about Andy to start with, that he’s a killer. When Dean argues, he says, “Right circumstances, everyone’s capable of murder. Everyone.” Disturbing thought and maybe true. He hypothesizes that’s what the demon is doing: pushing Sam and all the kids like him to murder. Sam says he knows Dean is just as scared as he is.

haha! Ellen calls the boys back to the roadhouse and wants to know about the case they were working. They don’t want to tell her but Sam ends up telling her everything. Sam says Anson’s mom didn’t die on his sixth month birthday. So there may be no way to track all of the kids. Awesome. Ellen tells Jo to break out the whiskey instead of the beer. Things are looking pretty grim. What’s next? Tune in next week to find out!

#SupernaturalSunday – Season 2, Episode 4 Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things

Happy Supernatural Sunday! 🙂 This week, we begin with broken-hearted Angela, who is crying over her boyfriend to Neil. Neil is clearly in the friend zone and wants to be more. He thinks comforting Angela in her time of need will make her see that he’s the one for her.

Brokenhearted Angela

Neil’s giving her chocolate, playing emo music — doing everything in his power to stay in the friend zone. Poor guy. But then the boyfriend shows up and Angela takes off. She’s driving, crying, not watching the road and probably shouldn’t have answered the call from the boyfriend. She ends up wrecking the car and killing herself. 😦 Over a guy. So not worth it, Angela!  Read the rest of this entry

#SleepyHollow Episode 5 – John Doe

I’ve been looking for this gif since episode 2! Just thought I’d share 😉

Now onto the new episode! Dream? Flashback? This time, we start with a little boy in colonial dress in the woods. He seems lost when he sees a little girl and tries to play with her — she wants him to chase her — and then he is chased by one of the Horsemen into Sleepy Hollow. I’m guessing the horseman was Conquest/Plague/Pestilence. (I’ve heard it called any of these) As the little boy runs onto the highway, the Horseman turns into black smoke (or dust), as if he’s run into an invisible wall.

#SupernaturalSunday – Season 2, Episode 3 Bloodlust

I’ve gotta be honest with you guys. It’s really hard to want to talk about this episode from way back in season 2, as awesome as it was, days after maybe the best season premiere in Supernatural history. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I watched it (and actually watched twice because it was so incredible). I don’t want to give away too many spoilers for those readers who aren’t caught up with those of us who have seen every episode. 😉

I mean:

SPNSeason9-500px

And this guy:

I’m not 100% sure he’s a good guy but I am sure he’s frickin’ hot. Okay, so I’m really distracted by season 9 awesomeness. Let’s go back in time to Bloodlust and vamps now since it really is an awesome episode too. Read the rest of this entry

Here’s something you probably didn’t know – God is down with playing practical jokes. He’s a betting man. Seriously. He should be a stand up comedian. Just ask Job. I’m pretty sure he found the lovely bet between God and Satan wildly hilarious. After all, suffering is awesome and makes you a better person.

Job was a perfectly pious man. According to the Job 1:

1 In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil. 2 He had seven sons and three daughters, 3 and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East.

4 His sons used to hold feasts in their homes on their birthdays, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 5 When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would make arrangements for them to be purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, “Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular custom.

Sounds like a man God Could get behind, right? Sure. But then again, we all know how bored and vengeful He was in the Old Testament.

One day all the angels came to God.

jb01_06

Even Satan was there, much to God’s surprise.

jb01_07

A conversation of sorts ensues about what a wonderful person Job is. Satan points out he is only good because God coddles him.

jb01_09-10

jb02_04-05

So, just to prove a point, God tells Satan to destroy him – without killing him ’cause, you know, God’s all sentimental and shit. And thus begins the biggest “nanny nanny boo boo” moment in the Bible.

jb02_06

So Satan strikes down everything Job holds dear, you know, just to prove a point. Meanwhile God’s watching and waiting to see if Job will curse Him.

13 One day when Job’s sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, 14 a messenger came to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys were grazing nearby, 15 and the Sabeans attacked and made off with them. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”

16 While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, “The fire of God fell from the heavens and burned up the sheep and the servants, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”

17 While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, “The Chaldeans formed three raiding parties and swept down on your camels and made off with them. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”

18 While he was still speaking, yet another messenger came and said, “Your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, 19 when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”

jb02_07

He even strikes Job, not to kill him but to cover his body with painful boils.

jb02_08

Job’s wife isn’t happy. However, Job sees things differently.

Job praises God even though he lost everything.

#SleepyHollow – Episode 4, The Lesser Key of Solomon

Maybe I should make these blogs a week later? Once again, here’s a gif that goes with last week’s episode. Icky tasting an energy drink:

Sigh. that’s how I feel about them too, Icky. 😉 Onto this week’s episode! Instead of a dream sequence, we start in a flashback. Icky is aboard a ship at the Boston Tea Party. Icky is told to “man the door” but he doesn’t listen. A Hessian soldier is guarding something. There’s an explosion…and then Icky is giving love advice to the OnStar representative. LOL

#SupernaturalSunday – Season 2, Episode 2 EVERYBODY LOVES A CLOWN

I’m sure this episode title is meant to be sarcastic. I think it would be more accurate to say 90% of the population is terrified of clowns. 😉 I know I am. Looking for “Supernatural clown gifs” was pretty terrifying. We begin with what I consider the scariest-looking clown since Pennywise in Stephen King’s IT.

We begin in Medford, Wisconsin at a carnival. A couple is watching their daughter play and she sees creepy freakin’ clown. Dad says, “God, I hate clowns.” When she sees the clown, she tells her parents but they don’t see it. Later, as they’re driving home, the same clown is standing by the side of the road, in the dark. Not creepy AT ALL. 😐 The freakin’ clown shows up at her house and she LETS HIM IN. *shudder* Clown then proceeds to butcher her parents.

There’s a line in John that got me thinking. Apparently, much like the story of creation occurring in 7 days (we all know a day back then was, like, a least a few years. – I mean how else would we explain the dinosaurs?), Jesus had some time on his hands after he rose from the dead. According to John21:25

 “25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”

Like I said 50 or so words ago, this statement started turning the gears of the old cranium so I decided to come up with my own list of the 12 things (in no particular order) I figured a newly minted zombie would do before he jettisoned himself into the heavens. I hope you enjoy. Read the rest of this entry

#SleepyHollow Episode 3 – For the Triumph of Evil

First of all, I couldn’t find this one last week so I’m putting it here just because.

Now on to the new episode:

Is opening with a dream sequence going to become the norm? That’s two episodes in a row. This time, it’s Abbie’s dream we open with and it’s a doozie. She’s been called to the station and for some reason, Icky is questioning…Abigail Mills, teenage version. The captain tells her Abbie was caught, thanks “to the good doctor here.” When Abbie bursts into the room to find out what’s going on, Icky’s eyes are white. Yikes! Then a black-eyed scary dude shows up with sand pouring from his eyes. Double yikes! I’m guessing he’s the Sandman.
