I just finished watching the new SN ep and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! Really, I didn't expect much after reading the synopsis for "My heart will go on" - it just sounded too cracky to be actually good. But I was proven wrong - this episode WAS kinda good, at least in my opinion! I loved how Sam and Dean acted like they were brothers again, all the little things between them (rock paper scissors ... how could Sam NOT know that Dean would chose scissors? "Always with the scissors, Dean!" :))) and how much they cared for each other and for Bobby! My, that last scene really broke my heart, Dean covering Bobby with a blanket? That was so touching!



I also found the entire idea of the episode kind of interesting. Sure, it didn't have anything to do with the mother of all plot that the second part of the season was supposed to be about, but at least the heavenly war played an important role for once! Who would have thought before the episode aired that the unsinking of the Titanic actually served a purpose and wasn't just Sera thinking "Well, wouldn't it be funny..."? And Balthazar was right, the world would be a better place without Celine Dion and Billy Zane ;) I wonder how SN always manages to get away with all these jokes about pop culture and with defaming celebrities ... has no one ever complained about that? Well, that's probably because the real A-Listers and celebrities aren't watching the show ...
It'll be interesting to see how Cas' story plays out in the final episodes. I can't imagine him becoming really evil, but it's obvious that he has changed quite a bit since the apocalypse was averted. But he wouldn't screw over the Winchesters, right? RIGHT? He just sacrificed 50000 people for them, so I don't think that's gonna happen. But all the lying and not telling them things they should know is definitely not a good sign ...
Imho, this episode found the perfect balance between angst (Cas!!!, Bobby ...), philosophical questions (can you really escape fate?) and funny moments ... I mean, the scenes in which the boys were trying to tempt Fate was just pure gold :) And the music choice was great too - "One way or another" just fit the situation perfectly!



And Dean being back to his old self? "My kind of librarian or your kind of librarian?" Priceless. Also:
 
Too soon? - Yeah, I'm pretty sure 6 seconds is too soon, Dean.
I can't hold it against him, I was laughing out loud too when I saw the guy's face on the bus! :)

 
So all things considered, I thought this was a pretty decent episode, much better than what I expected, and it set the tone for Cas's future storyline. Let's just hope that all the depressive!Bobby stuff isn't some kind of foreshadowing to the season finale ... I don't want anything to happen to him OR Cas, do you hear me, Sera?
And next week: WESTERN EPISODE, can't wait!!!

They really got us with this ep. I think they purposely mislead us to think this was gonna be cracky and pointless so we'd be more shocked lol

I def. don't think we've heard the last of Depressed!bobby. I won't say too much because I dunno how you feel about spoilers, but yea lol
I don't he'll die but I think this ep. showed he's hurting more than we realized.

I'm afraid you might be right ... I read some spoilers for the upcoming episodes too, and it doesn't look good :(
If you think about it ... if I had to go through what Bobby or the boys went through in their life (death of every family member and every loved person EVER, being possessed by demons and stuff, having to fight the apocalypse...), I could never be happy again. Seriously, if I had seen what they have seen... I think I would just kill myself or something, I wouldn't want to deal with all that!

Seriously. I'd have probably just offed myself. But in the SPN world death doesn't work so well, some angel and demon would just drag you back and force you suffer some more. Dang, depressing lol Poor Bobby and Winchesters :(

I agree, I wasn't expecting much from the episode but it turned out pretty good... and as you said, I'm glad they came up with a better explanation for unsinking the Titanic than Balhy not liking the movie, lol.

Something is definitely up with Cas, although I don't think he is the bad guy and/or wants anything bad to happen to Sam and Dean. But I'm not sure I'm gonna like whatever he is hiding...
