My thoughts on SPN Episode 10

I have to say I really liked this week's episode! It had everything one would expect from a good show: it was funny (PORN!Cas!!!, SamnDean's looks at Cas+Meg's kiss), suspenseful (the hunt for Crowley, the deal with Meg), philisophical (the question whether Sam isn't better off without his "mutilated" soul), revealing (Sampa's real agenda + declaring him as the "new" villain), sad (Crowley's death! Although I refuse to believe that he's really dead ... he can't be, right? He's king of hell after all!), moving (Dean finally telling Cas that they're still friends and that he cares about him, although he's behaved like a dick towards him in the last months) and depressing (Sam walking away in the end ... again!). It also posed a lot of interesting questions ... like if blood is really thicker than water (obviously not, with Sampa screwing over his own grandsons!) or if someone can live a better life if he doesn't have his soul. I was wondering: would it be possible to give Sam someone else's soul, if his very own is too damaged to be inside a human body? I mean, if Sam's memories are attached to his body and mind and not his soul, wouldn't using someone's else soul give him back the ability to love and feel again, without making him a different person? Or is it only his own soul that can establish a connection between his memories and his feelings, like knowing that Dean is his brother and consequently doing everything to not get him hurt? I think it probably is ... otherwise it would be way to easy, and they would have given him someone else's soul in a heartbeat!
Also, I think the pacing of this week's episode was really good ... the storyarc was gripping and had me on the edge of my seat throughout the ep. Ok, Cas' and Meg's kiss wasn't really crucial to the story and didn't make ANY SENSE AT ALL, but I can forgive this tiny little detail (God, how hot was Misha during that scene????!!!!). It's just that if they wanted to make the fans happy by giving Misha a love or sex scene, they could have given a million better reasons as to why this kiss could have happened, without letting Cas look like a horny, clueless teenager ... it's very out of character for him. But apart from that,  everything added up, they all acted believable ... I felt with every single character this week and could understand where they were coming from, which is not a given with Supernatural...
I can't believe that we only get one more episode this year ... there are so many questions and unclear points in that storyline that just can't be resolved in another 45 minutes! And then we have to wait WEEKS or even MONTHS to get the answers! I don't know if I can take that ... I might have to watch all the episodes again during hellatus to help me over the lack of these BAMFs Dean, Sam and Cas! :)

Oh my goddddd!!! I just found out that the Asylum 2 Supernatural convention in May next year will be in MANNHEIM, which is, like, 10 minutes from where my boyfriend lives!!! 10 minutes by foot!!! Imma be Jensen's "neighbour" for 2 days! :) I have to calm down ... *breathes in and out*

Of course, the convention is completely sold out, which means I have to start hunting (no pun intended :)) for my ticket now! Anyone have any leftover tickets he/she is willing to sell?

Writer's Block: Cool places

What's your favorite city or town that you've visited? Why do you love it?

Sydney's definitely one of the greatest cities ever, there's just so much to do there, and it's right on the waterfront!
London's also pretty cool, of course, you could walk through the city all day and never get tired of all the medieval churches and pubs..
Rabat in Morocco is a very beautiful place, too, as is Rome. And New York, of course! So no clear winner there :)

Absolutely loved this week's Supernatural! True, the episode was very lighthearted and didn't really advance the plot in any way, but it was nice to be able to laugh with Sam and Dean again! Also, I was very happy about the music choice - it's not quite back to Classic Rock, but "Space Oddity" is such a great song and really complimented the scene with Dean and the fairy :)

I'm really excited what next week brings, I'm dying to see if Sam is still on board with the plan to retrieve his soul ... sure didn't look like it in the last few minutes of "Clap your hands if you believe", right? I'm starting to wonder if he would really want to have it back, cause if it has been stuck in a cage with Lucifer for over a year now ... who knows what is left of it! And if he will ever be like Sam again and can bring himself to repress all the memories his soul will have of these last 12 months...

Looking forward to your answers!

D is for your dog's name: I don't have a dog. Nor a cat or any other pet.

I just watched Episode 8 of SN and still don't know how I feel about it. I guess I kinda liked it, although there was really nothing new in there and it seemed like a filler episode to me. The dog thing was kind of sad, though, I felt for Lucky in the end, and it was also interesting seeing Sam finally coming clean to Dean. "I don't even really care about you" made my heart stop for a second.  Also, could Dean be any prettier as in the final scene? I literally sat there shaking my head - it's just unreal how this man can be so good looking!

I guess what I took from this episode is that Sam really wants to get back to his old ways and that Dean, although he's pissed with his little brother (or what is left of his little brother...) wants to help him with that. And that's all that matters, right?

    Colin Hays - I just don't think I'll ever get over you

Music meme

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload) 5-10 songs you love that begin with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

asilia  assigned me the letter 'E'.

Everytime I see your face - Live
Very cheesy story behind that, but that was the first song on the "mix tape" (or mix mp3, as we might call it today) my boyfriend gave me after our second date :) Still makes me tear up everytime I hear it!
Everybody hurts - REM
This just reminds me of my youth (god, I'm old) and the 90s when REM and Oasis was like the best thing ever and everybody could sing along to their songs. "Everybody hurts" meant so much to my poor tormented teenage soul ... I remember gazing out of my window, feeling misunderstood by everyone - listening to this song made it all better!

Eight days a week - Beatles
Well, there just HAS to be a Beatles song in that list, right? Who doesn't love them? This song has no special meaning for me, but I like how sweet and innocent it is. The perfect love song! Also, there's a cover version by the Dandy Warhols that I really love to listen to, it's a little bit *edgier".

Everlong - Foo Fighters
What can I say ... the second I was assigned the letter "E", I rejoiced because I'd be able to put "Everlong" on the list ! In my opinion, this song is not just one of the best Foo Fighters songs, but also one of the best songs ever written. I always get goosebumps when listening to the acoustic version, especially to the lines "If everything could ever feel this real forever; If anything could ever be this good again" ... If someone wrote me a love song like that, I would seriously just die of happiness. I recently saw something on MTV where Dave Grohl recounted that Bob Dylan once complimented him on writing that song when they were on tour together ... and when Bob Dylan likes your song, that's pretty much all you need in your life! :)

The Police - Every breath you take
Not much to say here except that this is a classic that everybody should have listened to at some point before they died :) I liked The Police so much better than all the recent stuff Sting's doing ... he's a little too "new agey" for me now. Also, this was one of the songs I would always sing along to with my best friend when we were at school ... she always sang the second voice and made it sound so beautiful!

Every you and every me - Placebo
Another one of these 90s songs that I really loved ... when this was played at a party, EVERYBODY would totally freak out and go bananas :) It's also a real good song to discuss, lyricswise: I remember talking about it with my first crush and being so happy that he felt the same way about "All alone in space and time, there's nothing here but what here's mine"!

Eye of the tiger - Survivor
You SN people on my list know why I picked this, right? Right?? ;) I actually hated that song (too much 80s for my taste!), but ever since I saw Jensen voicing it, I can't help but thinking about him when I hear that song. And thinking of Jensen is a good thing! :) It also reminds me of one of my first festivals, where my next door tent neighbour would ALWAYS start the day off with "Eye of the tiger" playing as loud as it gets ... Good times!

Ein Kompliment - Sportfreunde Stiller
Just a sweet little German song that I really liked when it came out, but that I hardly listen to any more. Today, I find the Sportfreunde a little too childish ... However, that line "Du bist ... meine Süßwarenabteilung im Supermarkt" (To me, you're the candy section in the supermarket) still makes me smile!

Enjoy the silence - Tori Amos
One of the most romantic songs ever. Yes, I know it's by Depeche Mode, but I like Tori's version better, to be honest. Might be because Depeche Mode never really was my thing ... but also because Tori's version is much more dramatic, serious and perfect to listen to when you're suffering from lovesickness.
