First Impressions Review: 12x15 "Somewhere Between Heaven And Hell"

Watched the show kind of late because I found out my fist dl wasn't complete and had to take time to get it again. Grrrrr.




Nice young couple camping in the wilds of…Nebraska? o.O Riiiiiiiiight. :P
Aw, man…..he’s practicing to ask her to marry him and you just know he’s gonna wind up dead. Way to depress us, show. :(
And she just found the ring in his bag…
Hellhound! Poor Markus. :( But the gal fights back with the axe and gets away! Go girl! *sigh* So sad though.

Holy crap….the boys have just returned home from back to back to back hunts and Dean looks like a bloody mess.
Ok, nice shout out to “Dad” aka JDM on The Walking Dead there, show. Heh.
Why is Sam so clean???
But Dean’s covered in the guts from everything he just killed, including ghoul. Ew.
Yeah, it is weird that Sam knows how many underwear Dean packed. :P
Wearing them inside out, Dean? Ugh! Gross, man! Geez.
Sam gets a text from Frodo - heh. Must be Mick…ah, yeah, he signed it with an M.
It’s about the Nebraska camper death.
Sam effectively lies about how he’s got a new case already. “The computer told me.” Heh.
Dean buys it. Sam insists he take a shower ‘cause he “smells like roadkill”. Dean finally gives in.
“I’m using that fancy shampoo you keep hidden from me.” Heehee!

Boys arrive at the crime scene all nicely suited up. Yum!
Each of them on the phone….Sam’s been talking to Mary - she took care of a haunting in Akron with the BMOL. Dean calls them “douchebusters” and seems suitably unimpressed.
Dean reports Cas is in Idaho where someone is killing angels….again.

We join up with Cas at a diner where an angel was killed. Is this that waitress that was killed a couple of episodes ago???
The manager takes them into his secret room so nobody can hear them - stuff about aliens and government conspiracies all over the walls. Oh, boy….
He thinks the waitress was killed by an alien….but he’s got video of the killing in the alley.
Oh, yeah….Dagon. Cas sees the yellow eyes and takes the guy’s tape.

Back to the boys in the woods and the local sheriff is thinking bear or cougar attack. Are there bears in Nebraska??? *sigh*
But there’s no bodies. Hmmmm.
But there is Gwen, the survivor, but she’s going on about an invisible wolf.
Yep, boys have already figured it’s a hellhound.

A hellhound is already watching Gwen….uh, oh.
The boys drive up….man, I do love them in those long coats! *drools*
Dean’s griping about this being a dumb case….

Dean: Seriously Sam what are you gonna say? 'Hi my name Sam Winchester and this my much handsomer brother Dean, we hunt monsters. Oh and that guy you were banging, we're pretty sure he made a deal with a demon so a hellhound came a dragged his soul to Hell. But you, you're cool and since there is nothing for us kill, peace out.'

Sam says they can comfort her and make her feel better.
Dean: So we lie?
Sam: Yeah, a lot.

And the hellhound is right behind them!!!!!
OMG That shot of the boys through the barely open door!!!! Yep, capped it! ;)
Baker and Clapton. Hee!
Uh, oh…the hellhound followed them inside!!!!
Oh, brother….they tell her the thing that killed her boyfriend was a bear, that they killed it, and she’s safe now.
She’s adamant about what she saw though and orders them out. Uh, oh….
Guys don’t leave! She’s in danger!!!!

Sure enough….it’s chasing her!!!!
Whoah…okay why didn’t it attack her? It had a chance, but just straddled her.
Boys!!!!! Dean shoots it a couple of times, but it jumps out the window.

Suddenly we’re with Crowley and Lucifer….
Oy, this ep….so much going on.
Crowley’s got big plans for them….Lucifer’s not terribly impressed. “I’m still gonna peel off your skin and eat your soul.”
Crowley’s not afraid with Luci all chained up. Luci counters that they both know this is a temporary situation. Crowley’s ready to return two-fold whatever Lucifer can dish out.
There’s someone knocking at the door….Is that a bridle? Kinky indeed.
Seems like Crowley’s been so wrapped up with Lucifer that he’s letting his King of Hell duties slip. Late for a meeting, over 400 crossroad deals to sign off on.

The boys tell Gwen about the hellhound and that they’re hunters.
She wonder why they lied to her. Dean rats Sam out right away. “It was his idea.” LOL
Gwen didn’t make a demon deal and neither did Markus….hmmmm. That complicates things.

The boys are about to call you, Crowley and save you from these boring courtly duties.
Ha! Knew it. “Not Moose” on the phone. *giggles* That never gets old!
Crowley’s still pissed at them about Gavin. Yeah, it was his choice!
Dean tells him a hellhound is out and killing people who didn’t make deals…
Sure enough, his minions admit that a hound escaped, Ramsey. After ordering for the guards to be killed slowly, Crowley shows up in Gwen’s apartment.
Crowley: “You miss me?” Hee!

Well that was a quick scene….
Cas runs into another angel outside of the diner and he wants to help track Kelly Kline down.

Back to Crowley and the boys….
This isn’t just any hellhound, it’s THE Hellhound, and it only answers to Lucifer. Great.
Gwen finally admits she hit the hound with an axe, which explains why it’s seeking revenge.
So Crowley says they need to kill Ramsey….sure, easy enough.

Heh. Well, Lucifer really IS trussed up.
And the two demon minions just opened the door and found him. Peachy.
“Hi guys!”

Whoah….these 2 demons let Ramsey out on purpose, to make a distraction and to see what Crowley was hiding. Ah, they stole the key! But they want to make some “not demands” before they let Lucifer out.

Yes! Glasses!!!! They explain to Gwen how they allow them to see the hellhounds.
Dean & Crowley will search the woods and Sam will keep Gwen safe in the Impala.
But then Sam realizes Dean’s not talking about Gwen really….it’s the car!!!! LOL
Dean: “You tend to ride the breaks.”
Sam: “Dean, I know how to drive.”
Dean: “I’m just sayin’.“


He then tells Sam to imagine she’s a beautiful woman and Sam’s done and gets in the car. LOL!
Crowley’s all “Ew.” Heh.
They head into the woods, hellhound following.

Cas is hanging out with his angel buddy at a bar. Heaven is apparently doing alright with just a little of the usual in-fighting. Learning Lucifer has a child on the way kind of brought them all together.
He offers that Cas could return to heaven….lose the Winchesters. Cas knows he won’t be welcome there, but this angel says if he helps them with Kelly Kline that all his sins would be washed away and he’d be welcomed back with open arms. Joshua would be the one to do it.
Oh, boy….it’s the old all hands on deck, for the family and the greater good speech. Cas looks wobbly.

Lucifer’s been listening to the demons demands….this one wants quite a bit but the other dude just wants to make hell great again. Luci’s all yeah yeah. Yep, he’s gonna snap both of your little necks, guys.
He’s loose and yep…..poof they go!

LOL Crowley mimicking Dean as they walk in the woods. :P
Damn, love Dean in those glasses! *guh* Even Crowley says they bring out his eyes. :)
Dean says he’s gotten predictable and Crowley got soft. Here his is helping them save a girl and he saved Cas. Crowley denies it all and says maybe he’s rubbing off on the boys….like, all over. Bleh!

Sam looking nice in his rimless glasses! :)
Gwen apologizes….she knows something! But then she’s asking Sam to pull over so she can puke…

Meanwhile, Dean and Crowley find Markus’s body at Ramsey’s den, which is empty.

Oh….turns out the camping trip was Gwen’s idea. She liked him, but not as much as he liked her. Now she feels guilty for lying to him. Oh! Ramsey!!!!!
Damn! She’s attacking the car! Dean’s gonna be SO PISSED!!!!!!
Sam grabs an angel blade and orders Gwen to stay inside the car.
He gets out and Ramsey tackles him to the ground, knocking off his glasses. Nice shot of Ramsey over Sam through the lenses!
Sam! Do something!!!! But Gwen hits the hound with the green cooler!!!!
Great, now neither one of them can see her!
Sam takes a stab and connects!!!! Dead hound!!!! Woot! \0/

Ooooh, Dean’s looking at the Impala and he’s NOT happy. “And this is why you don’t drive!” He tells Sam. Heehee! Poor Sam.
Haha! Gwen hugging Crowley. He’s so uncomfortable.
Even Sam thanks him. Whoah. And then he disappears.

Crowley returns and doesn’t seem surprised to see Lucifer’s room empty.
He’s sitting on Crowley’s thrown. He thinks he’s gonna blast out of there, but Crowley snaps his fingers and effectively clips Lucifer’s wings.
Then he keeps snapping and explaining how he’s always 10 steps ahead and Luci’s bones start breaking.
The chains were nothing, it’s Lucifer’s vessel that is his prison - warded with sigils in every molecule.
Crowley: “In there? I own you!”
He says he’ll lock Lucifer up, go after his hellspawn, and kill it in front of him….and he’s just getting started. Ouch.

The boys enter the bunker and have Cas on the phone.
He reports he’s finally got a lead on Kelly…Dagon has her, but he doesn’t know where they are since Idaho.
He hangs up and then is standing before a portal to heaven. Uh, oh…Cas do you know what you're doing?

Dean thinks Cas sounded weird.
Then Sam’s phone is going nuts again….another text from Mick.
Which he doesn’t look at….and finally tells Dean who it is.
Every case they’ve done the past couple of weeks have come from the BMOL. Oh, Sam….
Dean takes it pretty well. Sam apologizes for lying to him and Dean admits that they work with people they don’t trust all the time - like Crowley. So he’s willing to give this a try, but the second they smell something fishy they’re out and Sam agrees immediately.
Sam’s phone is still buzzing and Dean tells him to answer it, which he does.
Oh, boy….I hope this is the right decision, guys.


Final Thoughts:

Another offering from one of the new writers this season and I really liked it. It had a lot of humor, which I always appreciate. Fairly good juggling of the 3 story arcs though we did jump around quite a bit.

I like that we've got the smart, evil Crowley back in play again. It's been a long time. At least he's finally showing Lucifer who's boss. But at the same time, he's willing to drop everything to help out the boys - though that also helped him eventually trap Lucifer again. I still say he likes the boys. Even Dean recognizes how they've changed him.

Don't know what to think of Cas's sudden change of heart. He killed Billie to save the boys, told them that they were his family and wouldn't allow them to die...and yet he's so easily talked into returning to Heaven? For what? Does he really think his fellow angels will be able to help find Kelly? Frankly, the angels haven't always proven to be helpful in the past. More often than not, they just cause more trouble. *sigh*

Great to see the boys hunting hellhounds again. They're so cool now that show is finally letting us see them. And again, Sam got to kill the beast! Though I must admit it's be nice to see Dean kill a hellhound one day, considering he was sliced to shreds by one. Sam's done a lot of killing lately instead of Dean. I wonder what that's all about? Last week Dean was no where near the take down of the Alpha Vamp and this time he and Crowley were on the other side of the woods. I know some fans have voiced their disappointment over Dean being out of the action lately and I can kind of agree. I love my warrior, hunter Dean and we're not being given that lately. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate seeing Sam finally get some kills in just...can't it kind of be more even? Or them killing something together? *sigh*

So glad that Sam finally came clean to Dean about working with the BMOL. I would have hated him keeping that lie up for too long. I'm kind of surprised Dean gave in so easily, but he did have a good point of who they often work with. A lot of times they've had to join forces with the "bad guys" to do a greater good. But I look forward to Dean being very suspicious and watching the BMOL with an eagle eye.

Looks like we get a 2 weeks hiatus now, with the next ep on March 30th.


Quotes:

Sam: Dean, you're covered in ghoul and wraith. And I think you have a piece of siren in your hair.

Dean: Computers, heh. Monsters, porn. Is there anything they can't do?

Castiel: Yes, your waitress. In this article you said she was killed by an alien.
Herb: Well, not just aliens. Reptilians. You know, like the Queen of England.

Herb: And I-I got proof. You know, see most sheeple can't handle the truth. But not me, I'm woke. It's why I don't use new tech, anything past '96 it's a trap. Ya know, palm pilot? It's more like tracking device.

Dean: Tell her what? Seriously Sam what are you gonna say? 'Hi my name Sam Winchester and this my much handsomer brother Dean, we hunt monsters. Oh and that guy you were banging, we're pretty sure he made a deal with a demon so a hellhound came a dragged his soul to Hell. But you, you're cool and since there is nothing for us kill, peace out.'

Crowley: You cross me, I cross you. You hit me, I hit you back twice as hard. You make me your dog, I make you my slave.

Dean: “Hellhound, kind of hard to explain. Basically, giant, invisible hounds from Hell. Oh, that wasn’t hard at all.”

Dean: “About 10 years ago did you really want something, like a Hello Kitty backpack or the death of an enemy?”

Crowley: Right after God said, 'Let there be light,' He -- He made a whole bunch of things -- posies, koalas, hellhounds. He wanted the Creator's best friend, but the hounds were too vicious. So He planned on having them put down, until along came our favorite fallen angel. He rescued one of the hounds -- a pregnant bitch named Ramsey.

Dean: Great. So, we have a hellhound who's gunning for revenge and it's personal. Well, just when I thought this gig couldn't get any weirder.
Crowley: It can always get weirder.

Dean: Take care of her.
Sam: Of course. Dean look even is Ramsay circles back, as long as we keep moving, Gwen's gonna... be... just. You're talking about the car.
Dean: You tend to ride the brakes.
Sam: Dean, I know how to drive.
Dean: I'm just saying. Pretend she's a woman. A beautiful, beautiful woman. Sam.

Tommy: “Take me, oh Fallen One. My life is yours to devour."
Lucifer: “See, now you just made it weird."

Crowley: Or a few years ago, who would have thought you'd be working with the King of Hell. Maybe you rubbed off on me. Maybe I rubbed off all over you.

Kelvin: “I love Earth. It’s quirky, it smells like hay. But it’s not home.”

Lucifer: Now what was that about saying being two steps ahead? Buh-bye Crowley.
Crowley: That's not what I said. I'm glad you've had a little taste of freedom. What I said was, I'm always ten steps ahead. I said you cross me, and I cross you. You hit me, I hit you back twice as hard. You make me your dog, I make you my slave. That chain around your neck was nothing. A stylish accessory. This vessel, that's your true prison. It's been warded with runes and spell work from the Cage carved into every molecule. In there, I own you. I'm just getting started. So, I'm gonna put you back in your hole and then I'm gonna go find your spawn, and I'm gonna rip him a part while you watch. And then... I'm still just getting started.

Sam: Dean, because of Mick and his guys the Alpha Vampire is dead. They get results. I don't like them either, but if we can save people... Either way I shouldn't have lied to you, and I'm sorry, man. I-
Dean: Well, okay.

Dean: What do you want me say? Do I like it? No. Do I trust them? Hell no. But you're right. We work with people we don't trust all the time, hell I just Liam Neeson'd it up with Crowley. So, if you wanna give this a shot, then fine. But the minute and I mean the second something feels off, we bail.
