Here be spoilers, you've been warned.



Okay, so in my head, after the phone broke and the hex bag was revealed, said bag was destroyed, resuscitation occurred and there, fixed that for you...

That said, the completely uninvolved in character part of my brain agrees that Sarah was the perfect choice for the once saved now targeted character to die right in front of them instead of them coming in and finding the person after the fact. And if I was going to generous, I'd thank the writers for not making Sarah's death unnecessarily gorey or (Eh hem) irreversible.

Otherwise, half of me liked the pure evilness of Crowley's plan, while the other part of me was going, yo, I know there's only one more ep left this season but seriously, couldn't have you started a little sooner on the loose end wrap up rather than trying to shove it into the introduction of whole new elements. That was a lot to cram into one episode and as such, very little of it had much impact, even Sarah's death (And most of you know how much I love the character of Sarah Blake-Winchester, I'm just saying.)

And after all of the Tossed-Salad elements of the eps, my one huge gripe was, when and how did the hex bag get into Dean's phone? Huh?

That Crowley has just now found the Edlund books...he needs to upgrade his intel.
Abbadon's back...I'm assuming to throw a wrench in their slamming the door plans (but she seemed sincerely unhappy that Crowley was now King of hell.)
Dean holds grudges like no one's business. Castiel should know that as well as Sam does by now.
Nephilim? Only one? As in the trials to shut the doors to heaven has only one first key to get the party started? Really?
A heretofore unknown exorcism - created in the last 100 years. I'm waiting to see where they get the purified blood from. Somehow I don't think Dean or Sam going to confession is going to cut it.

My predictions are that the boys will succeed at great cost. (Somewhere in the back of my brain, I'm seeing Sam loose his arm or something) As will Castiel and Metatron, but once the doors slam there will still be X-number of demons/angels trapped in the human plane to wreak future havoc.

So, overall I was neither impressed nor unimpressed -- mostly because there was so much going on in so many directions it's hard to parse out what was done extremely well versus what felt like filler. I'm probably going to watch it again.

In conclusion -- Sam and Sarah still make a pretty couple. (Sarah's canon but unseen new family notwithstanding).

Taylor Cole can stay too. I could fix that for them.

What?

I was so confused about the hex bag. How did it even fit into a working cellphone?

I liked the idea of Sarah being used in Crowley's play, but I think they could have gotten more emotional oomph out of (a) introducing her earlier, as you suggest, and (b) revealing that actually, she was leading a happy life, completely bucking the Winchester curse -- until now *dramatic music*

But yeah. Interesting elements. Odd as a whole.

Wasn't it odd though? They had a bunch of really good story points, but somehow they didn't all quite sync together. It's like all the ideas left over in the writer's notebooks.

Yes, please fix them. I always wanted Sam to get to see Sarah again, but this so wasn't what I had in mind.

LOL Me either, but aside from the whole dead Sarah bit, They all had a nice little moment of shared history. That was seriously cool.

It was a rather uneven, almost rambling episode, wasn't it? I enjoyed it a lot, but it was a little trippy trying to follow all the threads that came and went at random.


I thought it was Sarah's house phone that had the hex bag in it. That seemed to be what Dean answered when Crowley called, but I could be wrong. Though honestly, I'm not sure how they fit a hex bag into that, either. *demons! handwave*

Nephilim? Only one? As in the trials to shut the doors to heaven has only one first key to get the party started? Really?

Yeah, that seemed really odd to me, too. Especially with as wild as the angels have been going for a while now, you'd think Castiel would have his pick of nephilim.

I'm waiting to see where they get the purified blood from. Somehow I don't think Dean or Sam going to confession is going to cut it.

I was trying to imagine that -- they would need a hardy priest with a lot of time and coffee to take that confession!

That's what I thought, it wasn't a cell phone it was the phone in the room Sarah was staying in.

I totally agree with everything you said, it was really rushed and so many things going on. I really want an unexpected wrench to just launch itself into their world because I feel like nothing moved me in that episode.

I've always been a Sam/Jess shipper but last night made me realize "Oh yeah, Sam/Sarah is not bad. Not bad at all." And then that happened.

I'm still thinking that the show ended Season 5. That's my story.

Thank you. You were really the only person who could make that better.

And, yes to all the rest. And I was very happy that somehow, Taylor was even hotter than the last time the boys saw her. Don't care how it was possible; only care that, wow, omg amazing.
