In a nutshell: A great episode with the brothers back on the road again and the return of our favorite angel...not to mention a few others.
Hope you enjoy the caps and my thoughts on the third episode of the season. :D
"I think I'm bleeding." Understatement dude. :P
Jensen shirtless. Thank you Ben Edlund...THANK YOU! *drools*
It's embarrassing how many times I've watched this scene.
Thanks for this scene too, Ben. *g* Whoah...Jared. o_O
Dean: A case? When? It's been like a day and a half!
Sam: I like to work.
Sam: Glad we etched that out. Call me when you roll into town.
(Dean hangs up)
Dean: Who died and made you boss?
I like seeing the cars side by side. :)
Dean: Ben, I know you're lying. (pause) Because I lie professionally, that's how. Now tell your mom that you broke the damn thing and take it like a man. Okay? Ok-okay.
Dean: Still driving the plastic piece of crap, huh?
Sam: What's your mileage, again?
Dean: Shut up.
Boys in the Morgue...in suits. Yummy!
Sam: Were you uh... Were you racing me?
Dean: No, I was kicking your ass.
Sam: Very mature.
That's gotta be Sam's first door kick in 5 seasons.
Bleeding from the head...never a good sign.
You know it's bad when even Dean is disgusted.
Dean: Sweet. Blood, boils, locusts.
Sam: Three of your more popular Egyptian plagues.
Dean: Yeah, but these guys ate their way out of a cop's melon. I don't quite remember that in the King James.
Dean: Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray to Castiel to get his feathery ass down here.
Sam: You're an idiot.
Dean: Stay positive.
Sam: Oh, I am positive.
Sam: Like I said, son of a bitch doesn't answer... he's right behind me, isn't he?
Sam: So what, you like him better, or something?
Castiel: Dean and I do share a more profound bond. I wasn't going to mention it.
Sam: Wait, so- so you and the Halo Patrol, you guys aren't the cause of these killings?
Castiel: No. But they were committed with one of our weapons. There's only one thing that could've brought this into existence. You call it the Staff Of Moses.
Castiel: The weapon isn't being used at full capacity. I think we can rule Moses out as a suspect.
Castiel: It's been chaos up there since the war ended. In that confusion a number of powerful weapons were...stolen.
Dean: Wait, you -- you're saying your nukes are loose?
Dean: Yeah, I'm afraid so.
Castiel: Sam, Dean, my "people skills" are "rusty." Pardon me, but I have spent the last "year" as a multidimensional wavelength of celestial intent.
I love Cas using the quotey fingers! LOL
Aaron: It was an angel.
Dean: An angel?
Aaron: Those liars, they killed my brother and nothing bad even happened to them. It's not fair. So I prayed to God every night that he would punish them. God didn't answer. But he did.
Castiel: His name -- did he give you a name?
Aaron: No. He just said I could have justice, but I was gonna have to take it myself. He -- he gave me the stick.
Sam: You sold your soul to an angel?
Dean: Can that even happen?
Casitel: It's never happened before. An angel's buying souls. That could explain why he cut the Staff into pieces.
Castiel: More pieces, more product.
Dean: More "product"? Who is this guy?
Castiel: We'll find him.
Castiel has to look for a brand inside the kid to find out the name of the angel who he sold his soul to. Dean is no happy that the process is going to hurt Aaron. Looking to Sam he finds no ally, nor with Cas. "I can't care about that, Dean. I don't have the luxury."
Angel fight! Awesome stunt out the window. :)
And right onto Sam's car. Heh. :P
Sam: [After seeing his car totaled] My car.
Dean: OK, silver lining. [smirks]
Sam: I'm sorry, what's going on here?
Castiel: I can explain later. Right now we need to -
Dean: No, not later. Now. Stop, all right? Too many angels, Cas! I don't know who's on first, what's on second.
Castiel: What is "second"?
Dean: Don't start that.
Cas describes a Civil War up in heaven. Raphael and his followers want to take over heaven, Cas and many others are trying to stop him.
Castiel: We have to find the weapons and Balthazar before Raphael does. Whoever has the weapons wins the war.
Dean: What happens if Raphael wins? What does he want?
Castiel: What he's always wanted. To end the story the way it was written.
Dean: You mean the Apocalypse? The one we derailed?
Castiel: Yes, that one. Raphael wants to put it back on the rails.
Cas didn't tell the boys about this angel trouble because he was ashamed. "I expected more from my brothers."
Taking blood from Dean for the ritual to find Balthazar. Ouch! You could've asked, Cas.
Btw, Balthazar's digs? It's the same house they used for Crowley's house in 5x10. Hee!
I like Balthazar's style. He's kind of like a cross between Crowley and Gabriel. :P
Castiel apparently paved the way for the other angels to break free, change the rules, and defy destiny. "You might as well blow coke and jump on the bed. You proved to me we could do anything, so I'm trying everything."
Uh oh...Raphael and his goons are here.
Sam: Hey, there... [shows his Angel Killing Sword] Yeah, I got one of those, too.
Angel: You think you can knife fight an angel?
Dean: Who's fighting? Peace out, douchewad. [banishes the angels by putting his hand on sigil]
How come Cas seems to lose all his angel-fighting mojo when he's up against Raphael? Is it because he's an archangel?
Raphael: "Somehow, I don't think God will be bringing you back this time."
Love Balthazar turning him into a pile of salt!
Dean traps him, demanding he release Aaron Birch's soul and Sam backs him up this time, even Cas. "I believe the "hairless ape" has the floor." Heh.
The Wendigo mask for Ben's Halloween costume is cute! :P
Dean's upset that Sam didn't protest when Cas wanted to torture Aaron. Sam says he's wrong, but Dean points out that something's different with him. "I just don't think I'm getting the whole scoop." He thinks Sam's different because of his time in hell. Sam counters that going to hell messed Dean up, but not him, that they're different and he's okay. Dean is not satisfied with that answer as Sam gets into the car.
Hitting the highlights:
* Yummy eye candy from both of the guys. Um...*GUH*
* Great to have Castiel back and better than ever. :)
* I like Balthazar. Hope they bring him back in the future.
* Sorry to see Raphael go. Gee, here he's this big bad Archangel and he gets taken down by a crystal?
* I highly approve of the gross-out factor in this eppy. Bring it on! :P
* There was so much packed into this episode. So many scenes going by so fast. Great writing with the dialog, too. :)
* That talk at the end really didn't resolve anything, except that Sam really doesn't see that there's anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Dean's mistrust is only going to grow. *iz sad*
Yep, another thumbs up from me! :D
