First Impressions Review: 13x03 "Patience"  
First of all I want to say I’m excited about this particular episode because it’s the one I got to watch them film a bit of out on location after VanCon in August. *squee* :D



Has this psychic gal been on the show before? She seems familiar somehow.
Btw, I saw them filming outside of this building.;)
Whoah, that turned violent fast! Poor gal. :(

Dean’s drinking his sorrows away and blasting tunes on his headphones.
Alright what is Jack’s fascination with brick walls???
So how much time has passed??? Days? Weeks?
Sam all sneaking a listen to Kelly’s video….until his phone buzzes.
Missouri!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D
Kelly: “You have an angel watching over you.” Oh, the significance of THAT line in this show!

So Sam puts Jody on Missouri’s case because they need to stay and help Jack with his powers. Dean doesn’t like it. “Or maybe she winds up dead because you wanted to skip out on her to babysit the antichrist.” OUCH! Geez, Dean! Just slap him, Sam. Seriously! He needs some sense slapped into his head at this point. Trying to stick Jody’s danger on Sam??? Not cool!!!! :(
So Dean goes off to join Jody ‘cause he “didn’t sign up for this”. Bleh.

Eeee!!!!! This is the stuff I watched them film!!!!!! \0/
I was right across the street!!!!! :D :D :D
So DeDe, the psychic gal was Missouri’s protege.
There’s the Impala and Dean, just like I saw them drive up to the scene! :D
I thought there was a street back there and there isn’t…..weird.
Love how Dean doesn’t know who to hug first! Awwww…
Of course, Missouri senses Dean’s losses right away.
Those beaded blinds….whatever, are so pretty!
Did we know Missouri reads objects before? I don’t think so.
So they know it’s a wraith and that it likes to kill psychics.

Sam starts on Jack’s training…so he won’t hurt anyone else with his powers.
There is no spoon….err, move the pencil, Jack.

So Missouri saw something go after her son, James, and calls to warn him. Except he’s a non-believer and hangs up on her.
She sends Dean to go protect James and her granddaughter, Patience.

Jack can’t move the pencil.
Yep, I’m thinking Jack can only use his mojo when he’s emotional. Angry, scared.
We’ll see if I’m right…
Sam inquires how he felt when he used his powers for Asmodeaus and Jack says it was easy.
They take a break and Jack’s a little surprised. Is this a new room in the Bunker? Looks new.

Gah! He’s back!!!
Don’t kill Missouri!!!!!
Noooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! *cries*

High school….hello, Patience! :)
Flickering lights, blood on the floor….Missouri!
Oooh, it was all a dream. Sorta.Of course, her dad dismisses the dream….

Eeee!!! Here’s the other scene I saw them film! Well, outside the gas station. ;)
Oh, man….Dean learns of Missouri’s death by a news report. But dayum….Jensen’s face looks gorgeous here! The VanCon face! *glees* :D
Weird cut there on his line to Jody….but that’s what I saw them film.
Ha! You don’t really see him put the food and beer in the backseat. :P
Btw, those cars on the street? Real traffic. It was a VERY busy street, with cars and trucks passing by in a steady stream while they were filming.

How on earth is James finding out about his mom’s death from Dean and Jody???
Wouldn’t they notify him right away as next of kin???

Patience is living out her nightmare…and hearing Missouri’s voice!
Gah! Wraith dude!!!!!

Whoo! Patience is quite the fighter! She broke off his spike thingy! Ouch!
Dean!!!! Love that gun!
Run, Dean! Run!!!! Dude….he’s in the next county by now. Except not! Gah! Oooh, that’s gonna leave marks. :(

So according to Patience, Missouri walked out on her and her dad right after her mom died. Dean says it can’t be the same person he knew.

Ah, so that’s how Sam can leave Jack alone…. camera in the room monitoring him.
Aaaaannnndddd he’s gone!!!! Heh, he just moved to the corner of the room.
Jack thinks he must be evil…but Sam doesn’t. Sam doesn’t look happy about Dean telling Jack he’d kill him. There’s gonna be words about that when Dean gets back, I bet.
Poor Jack! He feels so bad about already doing bad things when he’s only been alive a few days.
Sam decides to change tactics and stop pressure Jack to use his powers. He’ll research and figure out some other way.
Jack wonders why Sam is being nice to him…

Sam: Because I know what it feels like…to feel like you don’t belong. To feel like there’s this darkness inside of you, to be scared of who you are, what you can do. Dean, Cas, my family helped me through that. So now I wanna help you. Because you’re not evil, Jack.

Aw, beautiful emotional moment from Jared.

We learn the truth…Missouri told James that his wife would be alright when she got sick. So when she died, James stopped believing in her powers. Of course, Dean doesn’t like James cutting his mom out of his life just like that. Love Jody just putting her hand on his arm like that to calm him down.
They’re going to run from the wraith….uh…. Not sure that's possible...

Wow. They filmed at a real cemetery. That’s rare.
So was the pin her mom’s or Missouri’s? I’m thinking Missouri’s. It’s pretty.
Well, don’t be in a hurry or anything…Gah! Wraith in the closet!!!!
And she’s gone! How is Dean the last one to run up the stairs???

Dean’s doing his traffic camera searching but it only gets him so far.
Oooh, so James knows some divining magic!

This looks like the same room Cas interrogated someone. With the cast member’s picture on the wall who had passed away? Can’t recall the episode. I’ll have to check that later…
So he didn’t kill Patience right away because draining psychics gives him a rush. So he’s saving her.
Oh geez, he’s gonna feed on her slow. He’s so creepy, too!
Dean and company!!!!
Seriously, we didn’t get to see James do the divination spell??? I feel cheated!
Oh damn! He just killed James! How did he get away like that??? This guy’s super sneaky!
No! Jody!!!!! Alright, this is a dream! Patience is dreaming the future and she can save them!
Oh, we even get Dean’s death….lots of stabbings.
Ok, now we’re in real time….warn them!!!!!
Well she saved James and Jody….barely.
Oooh, Dean with the rope moves. That’s cool!
Yeah! Got him!!!! Another very awesome fight scene. Loving these so far.
Patience: “Guess I’m psychic.” Uh, YEAH! Sheesh! Finally.

Dean and Jody by the Impala! Nice shot!
Uh, why wouldn’t Dean be able to kill a wraith, Jody? It’s not like he’s been on vacation for a month.
So it’s back to school for Patience and “get back to normal” by order of her dad.
Dean agrees…

Dean: He is. This life…hunting…monsters. There’s no joy in it. There’s nothing but pain, horror, and death. So if you get a chance at normal? You take it.

Yeah, but what about when the next wraith comes to town? What about never really being safe once you learn what evil is out there? Yeah, I think even Jody’s a little surprised by Dean’s words.
She tells Patience to not listen to Dean, or her dad either if it’s not what she wants. She mentions Claire, how she tried to keep her safe, but it didn’t work. And here we go…Jody gives Patience her card and to call her if she wants to talk or anything. Wayward Sisters!!!! :D

Sam already knows about Missouri’s death by the time Dean comes home.
Dean: “Just another day at the office.” Geez, Dean that’s pretty cold.

Dean: How’s the kid? He go dark-side yet?
Sam: Nope. He is pretty messed up thought.
Dean: You’re telling me.
Sam: No, Dean. He’s messed up because of you. Dean, you said you’d kill him.
Dean: It wasn’t exactly like that.
Sam: Then how exactly was it?
Dean: I told him the truth. See, you think you can use this freak. But I know how this ends, and it ends bad.
Sam: I didn't.

Dean: What?

Sam: I didn't end bad. When I was the freak, when I was drinking demon blood.

Dean: Come on, man. That's totally different.

Sam: Was it? Because you could have put a bullet in me. Dad told you to put a bullet in me, but you didn't. You saved me! So help me save him!

Dean: You deserved to be saved. He doesn't!

Sam: Yes he does, Dean. Of course he does!

Dean: Look I know you think you can use him as some sort of an inter-dimension can opener, and that's fine. But don't act like you care about him. Because you only care about what he can do for you. So if you wanna pretend that's fine. But me, I can hardly look at the kid! Because when I do all I see is everyone we lost!

Sam: Mom chose to take that shot at Lucifer. That is not on Jack!

Dean: And what about Cas?

Sam: What about Cas?

Dean: He manipulated him. He made him promises, said paradise on Earth, and Cas bought it and you know what it got him? It got him dead. Now you may be able to forget about that but I cant!


Oh, man! Emotionally charged argument between the boys with Jack listening right outside in the hall. I knew it! He’s emotional and calls out to Castiel….his eyes light up and we see..Castiel in the Big Empty! It’s pretty much exactly how I thought it would be. Big, empty, and dark.


Final Thoughts

Alright, another solid episode! Not as light on Sam scenes as I had though and that's good. Hopefully others feel the same. Jared really had a few emotionally charged scenes to chew up and he did an excellent job. :)

I knew Dean was blaming Jack for Cas's death and now we've got it confirmed. Which is pretty stupid, if you take a close look at it. How do we know that what Jack showed Cas isn't the truth? Just...down the road. I don't know, I just know Dean is taking his grief and twisting it around and blaming Jack, which is really unfair. I mean, it was Lucifer who stabbed Cas in the back! Jack wasn't even there yet! Gah! I'm angry at Dean and that doesn't happen too often. I completely identify with how Sam is seeing and comparing himself to Jack. And I don't feel he's using Jack as a way to get to Mary as Dean accuses him of. Sam genuinely cares about and understands Jack. He's been there...the freak. So sad that word is back on the show.

I mean...Patience isn't a freak? Missouri wasn't? Dean didn't have issues with them. But of course he doesn't blame them for killing his best friend, either. *sigh* I could go around and around on this, but I won't. Let's move on...

Nice set-up for the Wayward Sisters pilot when we get to episodes 13x09 and 13x10. Can't really give my opinion on Patience yet, since we really haven't seen much of her personality yet. But I am looking forward to seeing our wayward gals in action! ;)

So yeah...anger at Dean aside, I liked the ep and give it a B+.
It was fun, as always, to see the scenes I was there to witness them film. :)
Bring on next week!


Quotes

Kelly: Jack don't let anyone tell you who you are supposed to be. Because who you're supposed to be isn't fate, it isn't me, it isn't your father. You are who you choose to be. And I know you are going to be okay. God you are going to be amazing. You have an angel watching over you.

Dean: If you wanna stay here and Mr. Miyagi this kid, knock yourself out. I didn't sign up for that. So I'm gonna go to work.

Missouri: Oh, honey I'm sorry for your losses.
Dean: Leave it to a psychic to cut right to the chase.

Wraith: Well then, I guess it's time to you know, scream.
Missouri: No, there'll be none of that. I've seen how this turns out. I run, you catch me, I die. I stay, I die. But this way, my people, they're gonna murder your ass.


Patience: My grandma said she was psychic, but she's a fraud. She doesn't care about me, she ditched me -- me and Dad right after Mom died.
Dean: Okay, this woman you're describing that walked out on her family, that wasn't who Missouri was at all.

Sam: No. Jack why do you think you're evil? Because when I look at you, that's not what I see.
Jack: Yeah, well Dean sees it. That's why he says -- he said he'd kill me.
Sam: He what?
Jack: And maybe he should. Mom said I could be good, that I had the choice to be good, that it was up to me. But she's dead, because of me. I've only been on Earth for a few days, and I've already hurt people. I've already done bad things, and no matter how hard I try, I can't -- I can't do the one good stupid thing you want me to. So, I must be evil. Like Lucifer.
Sam: Jack, listen. Asmodeus tricking you, Dean... none of that is your fault. I think that, uh, everything that has happened, you are scared to use your power and me pressuring you certainly isn't helping.
Jack: Sam, why are you being so nice to me?
Sam: Because I know what it feels like to feel like you don't belong, to feel like there's this darkness inside of you, to be scared of who you are, what you can do. Dean, Cas -- my family helped me through that. So now I wanna help you, because you're not evil Jack.


Jody: The way you handled that wraith, you still got it.

Dean: You given any thought to what's next?
Patience: School's in an hour, so I guess calculus.
Jody: And your gift?
Patience: I talked to my Dad, and he thinks I should put it away. Dad says we should just get back to normal. Maybe he's right.
Dean: He is. This life, hunting monsters, there's no joy in it. There's nothing but pain, horror and death. So, if you get a chance at normal. You take it.


Jody: Patience, wait. I may be out of line here, but you don't have to listen to him to either of them if that's what you really want. I had a daughter, I guess, Claire. And I asked her to stay in line to defy who she really was, because I thought it would keep her safe. It didn't work. It never does. Your gift -- maybe your right maybe it will go away. But if it doesn't, you try to force it down to make someone else happy, you will only make yourself miserable. It's your choice. But if you ever need someone to talk to, some place to go. My door's always open.

Dean: I told him the truth. See, you think you can use this freak. But I know how this ends, and it ends bad.
Sam: I didn't.
Dean: What?
Sam: I didn't end bad. When I was the freak, when I was drinking demon blood.
Dean: Come on, man. That's totally different.
Sam: Was it? Because you could have put a bullet in me. Dad told you to put a bullet in me, but you didn't. You saved me! So help me save him!
Dean: You deserved to be saved. He doesn't!
Sam: Yes he does, Dean. Of course he does!
Dean: Look I know you think you can use him as some sort of an inter-dimension can opener, and that's fine. But don't act like you care about him. Because you only care a bout what he can do for you. So if you wanna pretend that's fine. But me, I can hardly look at the kid. Because when i do all i see is everyone we lost.
Sam: Mom chose to take that shot at Lucifer. That is not on Jack
Dean: And what about Cas?
Sam: What about Cas?
Dean: He manipulated him. He made him promises, said paradise on Earth, and Cas bought it and you know what it got him? It got him dead. Now you may be able to forget about that but I cant!
