#SupernaturalSunday

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been working and writing a lot and not had the chance to rewatch the older episodes. I’m going to take a break from that and post something for discussion. I’d like this to be more interactive, with someone responding and discussing the greatness of our favorite show rather than me just talking at y’all. πŸ˜‰

My idea for new posts is to discuss some of the more current issues. First off, what’s up with the craziness that is Sam and Dean’s relationship? I’ve had a few debates with friends about this and am curious what a wider range of viewers think. It’s especially been a source of strong feelings over the past few episodes of season nine. The growing rift between them is really starting to bother me, as a viewer since the pilot episode. How do you guys feel about it? I mean, what happened to this?

#SupernaturalSunday – Season 2, Episode 13 HOUSES OF THE HOLY

Do you believe in angels? This episode of Supernatural delves into the topic for the first of many, many times. We meet Gloria.

Gloria

She doesn’t seem like she’s having a good day. Or life. She’s watching mindless crap on TV. The TV flips itself to a televangelist. No matter how hard she tries, she can’t change the channel. The lights flicker, the whole place starts to shake. And then a blinding white light appears to her in the hallway. Is it…an angel?

#SupernaturalSunday – Season 2, Episode 12 NIGHTSHIFTER

YAY! We’re back to one of my recurring favorite “monsters”–the shapeshifter. This was one of my favorite episodes, one I watched over and over and well, you get the point. I mean, there’s this:

Just for starters. πŸ˜‰ We begin with a recap of the last episode in which we mentioned the Winchesters’ trouble with the law, The Usual Suspects. The recap is interrupted by a breaking news bulletin. There’s a hostage standoff situation at a bank in Milwaukee. One of the hostage-takers steps out of the bank to release a hostage. The news cameras zoom in…holy crap!

#SupernaturalSunday – Season 2, Episode 11 PLAYTHINGS

Yay!! We’re back! πŸ™‚ I have missed writing the blog and I hope someone has missed reading it. After crazy holiday times, sickness and injury, I’m back. It’s fitting this week’s episode should fall on January 19 since it originally aired January 18, 2007. I remember the date very well because the next morning, a Friday, I went to the hospital to be induced and later that afternoon, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter. πŸ™‚

Throughout the hours of labor, my sister Abby kept quoting this episode to make me laugh. So even though it may not be the best episode, I always watch it with very fond memories of my daughter’s birth. Happy birthday, baby! πŸ™‚ She used to be a Supernatural baby haha! Now it scares her so I don’t let her watch it anymore. πŸ˜‰

So anyway, onto the episode. In this beautiful hotel in Connecticut, the hotel owner mom is having toys packed away that the little girls don’t play with anymore.

#SleepyHollow – THE VESSEL

Aaaand we’re back! Have you guys missed me? πŸ˜‰ Sadly, this is the last episode before the season finale but let’s get straight to it! The episode begins with Abbie talking Icky into trying on some more modern clothes. Icky emerging in skinny jeans is quite the glorious sight. β€œHell hath frozen over,” Abbie says. Icky: β€œIndeed.” A little later, β€œOne sign of the impending apocalypse is surely skinny jeans.” Behold:

LOL Within another few minutes, he’s taken them off and gone back to his old-school britches. 😦  Read the rest of this entry

#SupernaturalSunday – Season 2, Episode 10 HUNTED

Happy Supernatural Sunday! That was a short wait to continue after the mid-season finale, eh? I wish I could say the same for season 9 of our favorite show. πŸ˜‰

Hunted begins with a kid named Scott at his psychiatrist or therapist, telling that “it started a little over a year ago” with bad headaches. He can electrocute things when he touches them if he wants. Scott is one of the kids like Sam.

Scott

The Yellow-Eyed man comes to him in his dreams, tells him to do bad things and that he has plans for him. We’ve heard this before. Later, Scott is attacked and stabbed to death in a parking lot. 😦

And then, we’re back where we left off last week with Sam and Dean.

#SleepyHollow – Episode 10, The Golem

After a week off, we’re back for the mid-season finale. How will we handle no Icky & Abbie (Ichabbie, I believe the fandom calls it) until January?? Seeing Icky all manly, chopping wood in the opening scene will help ease the pain. “Celebrating yuletide with a titular display of luuumber,” says Icky, who’s feeling pretty Bah Humbug. After Icky explains that back in the day, egg nog was egg grog, Abbie gets to the heart of the matter. He’s obviously upset about not knowing about his son.

Turns out Icky has already called in the Sin Eater, Henry Parish, to help him talk to Katrina. When Henry starts to refuse, Icky reminds him he summoned someone from the past before. Henry warns him he may not like what he has to do and maybe Abbie shouldn’t be there. Abbie insists on staying. When Icky says he understands the risk:

#SupernaturalSunday Season 2, Episode 9 CROATOAN

Happy Sunday! I’m finally back again. πŸ˜‰ The holidays sure do make things crazy. If you’ve been watching the current season of Supernatural, you’re probably still angry or crying over the mid-season finale but please, still read my blog. πŸ˜€ Like the last episode we discussed here, Croatoan has several themes that will keep popping up over all the following seasons. Coincidentally, this episode was the mid-season finale of season 2.

We begin with Dean walking into a room with a group of people, one of whom is a doctor. He pulls out his gun and aims it at a guy tied to a chair who’s proclaiming, “It’s not in me!” The doctor says she can’t tell for sure so Dean smokes him.

When the gun fires, Sam wakes up. This was another premonition. He and Dean take off for the town Sam saw, which is called River Gorge in Oregon.Β  Read the rest of this entry

#SleepyHollow – Episode 9, Sanctuary

Why do I always find gifs I love weeks after the episode? πŸ˜‰

Anyway, enjoy it. This week’s episode centers around a billionairess who disappears after vising her family’s homestead, Frederick’s Manor. She is very excited about the possibility of restoring the old house. When she goes into the house with a bodyguard, she finds a closet filled with roots, which then…um, pulls her in. Yikes!

Abbie and Icky have an adorable conversation about Thanksgiving (love how Icky says “tuuurkey”). He seems particularly horrified at the mention of cranberry sauce. “Pilgrims didn’t have any sugar to make a sauce, let alone a pie!” Gotta love Icky. πŸ™‚ He admits talk of holidays and family time “irks” him because he misses Katrina. Awww…but you have Abbie!Β  Read the rest of this entry

#SupernaturalSunday – Season 2, Episode 8 CROSSROAD BLUES

I’m back! πŸ™‚ Did y’all miss me last week? It was a busy week and this one has been no exception but can’t leave you guys for more than a week. πŸ˜‰ This week is Crossroad Blues, which is huge in the Supernatural lore.

We start in Greenwood, Mississippi, back in 1938 with blues singer Robert Johnson. He’s in a blues club, playing some beautiful music when he starts hearing dogs howling and barking. Only he can see and hear them.

Robert Johnson

We as the viewer hear them and see their shadows outside the window but we don’t see their true form and won’t…until season eight. He hightails it out of the club and runs for home.

crossroad blues 2

The dogs are banging at the door and Robert collapses, going into some kind of seizure. When his lady friend finds him, he’s babbling about black dogs and then dies. 😦

Meanwhile, Sam and Dean are at a diner. “So much for keeping a low profile,” Sam says. “You’ve got a warrant in St. Louis and now you’re officially in the feds’ database.” Dean: “Dude, I’m like Dillinger or something.” They’ve got nothing on Sam. Dean accuses him of being jealous. Haha they’re too cute. πŸ˜‰
