Supernatural – Season 4 – Episode 20

The Rapture

Important Moments:

Sam is starting to show signs of addiction to demon blood, and is also demonstrating a reliance on it when he fights, which doesn’t work out so well.

Near the end of the fight with the demons that kidnapped Jimmy’s family, Sam has a knife and a demon, and he drinks a little blood from the neck of the demon to be able to use his powers. However, when he looks up, Dean and Castiel and just looking at him. Talk about looks of disappointment. Also, mixed with a little WTF?

Jimmy is dying, and Castiel will be possessing Claire instead. Castiel tells him to take him back and let Claire go, to which Castiel agrees. As Castiel is leaving, Dean asks him what he was going to tell him, and Castiel says that he learned his lesson, that he serves heaven, not man, and certainly not Dean. Continue reading

Supernatural Rewatch Recap – Season 4 – Episode 6 – Yellow Fever

Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, SupernaturalSupernatural – Season 4 – Episode 6

Yellow Fever

Plot Summary:

The episode opens with a funny scene that shows Dean is far from over the psychological trauma of going to Hell.
Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
Sam and Dean are in Colorado to investigate the deaths of people that should have been perfectly healthy dropping dead of seemingly natural causes. They ask the coroner to do an autopsy of a man that died of a heart attack. However, when the doctor opens him up, he finds that the man’s heart doesn’t have any blockages and looks healthy.

They talk to the Sheriff about the death of Frank, the man with the heart attack, and find that Frank was frightened of something before he died.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Supernatural
As they are discussing the case, Dean shows his first sign of being jittery when he avoids teenagers that are just standing there, doing nothing. Then, when they are interviewing Mark Hutchence, Frank’s neighbor, Dean seems overly freaked out by the animals in the house, and not just the snake and spider, but also the frogs. Dean then freaks out when Sam opens the car door. As they are driving, even Dean realizes he’s acting weird, and then the EMF scanner goes off. Dean is causing it.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
Dean wakes up with the same marks on his arm as the other dead people. Sam talks to Bobby and they figured out that Dean has ghost sickness. They figure out that to stop the ghost sickness, they have to kill the ghost that started it.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
Dean starts having hallucinations and then coughs up a wood chip. The brothers go to an old abandoned lumber mill and find a wedding ring that turns out to belong to Frank, the dead guy from the first scene. Dean then finds a painting of Frank’s dead wife. When he picks it up, it turns on the saws, which freaks Dean out. Then Dean sees a man behind Sam. At the look on Dean’s face, Sam turns around. It is, unsurprisingly, a ghost. It comes after Sam, who shoots it. Dean, meanwhile, has already gone running from the lumber mill to the car, where he is downing bourbon.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Supernatural
The brothers go to the Sheriff’s station and get the file for Luther Garlands, the ID Sam found at the lumber mill and presumably the ghost. After they leave, the camera cuts to the sheriff, frantically rubbing at his wrist. He also has ghost sickness.

The brothers go to visit Garland’s brother, who is living in an institution. He tells the Winchesters that Frank killed Luther Garlands after his wife, Jessie, went missing. He also tells the brothers that he used to hate Frank, but he doesn’t anymore because he just did it out of fear, which “spreads and spreads.”

Dean realizes that the scratches he has are road rash. Dean is experiencing Luther’s death in slow motion. Dean then proceeds to have an epic freakout.

Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
Bobby shows up to help Sam, while Dean is “home sick”. Dean is having hallucinations while Sam and Bobby try to scare the ghost to death, so to speak.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Supernatural
The Sheriff shows up at the hotel room, freaking out with hallucinations of his own, and then dies right on the floor in front of Dean. Dean continues freaking out as Lilith shows up and tells him he’s going back to hell.

Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Jim Beaver, Bobby Singer, Supernatural
Meanwhile, Sam and Bobby are enacting Sam’s plan, which is to get the chain around the ghost’s neck and for Bobby to drive as fast as he can, putting the ghost through his own death again, scaring him, and it works.

Story & Character Analysis:
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
This episode plays for laughs much more than usual, and that means a little less character development. However, there are still a few issues that arise.

Dean’s fears about Sam are personified in Dean’s hallucination of Sam as Yellow Eyes. This is emphasized at the end of the episode, when Dean is theoretically better and no longer infected by ghost sickness, and yet he briefly sees Sam’s eyes turn yellow.

Additionally, when Dean has a hallucination of Lilith at the end of the episode, she brings up his time in Hell, and it leaves the implication that Dean has a secret he isn’t telling Sam or Bobby.

Funny Moments:

The scary killer dog.

The scary killer dog.

Dean is running from a dog in terror. He passes a homeless man and warns him that the dog will kill him. Then the dog runs into the light and it’s a tiny cute dog with a bow on its head. Dean keeps running anyway, clearly still scared.

Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Supernatural
Dean is basically comedic relief the entire episode. However, Dean’s ridiculous screaming at the cat in the locker is a highlight.

Chuck Versus the Couch Lock

The episode opens with a group doing something that looks possibly illegal, but then we see Casey is with them.

Important Moments/Plot Summary:
Casey being there doesn’t mean nothing illegal is going on, as one of the men, Packard, on Casey’s team points out that some of the gold would help them retire. The rest of his team turns on him, and then we are back in the Buy More. Casey was having a flashback.

Chuck is having no luck finding more information about his mother. Sarah then finds a photo of Casey’s old team, saying that they would have information on Volkoff. Chuck flashes and then sees that they used to work with Casey. Casey tells them that he had them court martialed and sent to Leavenworth, but they escaped.

Chuck suggests faking Casey’s death and staging a pretend funeral. Casey says they will come for his hand, as they need his fingerprints to get into the vault. They have all the details planned, so General Beckman approves the mission. That seemed almost too easy…

Then Beckman compliments Chuck on his ability to put Casey in harm’s way for the mission. She thinks it’s a compliment, but it makes Chuck worried that maybe the mission is too dangerous after all. Continue reading

When they reach the vault, Casey gets whatever it was that he was asked to retrieve, without Chuck or Sarah knowing about it. Chuck asks him if he took something out of a box and Casey says no. Chuck thinks he’s working on a secret side mission and Casey threatens to kill Chuck if he tells anyone. Continue reading

A vision? He thinks so.

Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester, SupernaturalSupernatural

Season 2 – Episode 4 – Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things

This episode delves into the theme of life and death and letting things go when it’s their time. Dean sees himself as not belonging and we learn he blames himself for their father’s death. This is echoed in the case of the week, about a zombie, a girl brought back to life by her friend who was in love with her.

The episode opens with a man trying to comfort a woman, Angela, who is suffering from a broken heart because her boyfriend cheated on her. Her ex-boyfriend, Matt, shows up at the door and he seems angry. She gets in the car and drives away. He calls her while she’s driving and they get into a fight. While they are fighting, Angela has a car accident and is killed.

Important Moments:
Dean Winchester
The brothers are at the cemetery, visiting their mother’s grave, apparently located in Illinois, which is explained away by saying their uncle had her buried there. While Sam is at the gravesite, Dean is wandering around the cemetery looking all kinds of uncomfortable. He sees a really gnarly (and gnarled) looking tree and realizes that the area he’s standing in has everything dead in it in a perfect circle around the grave of a woman named Angela Mason, the girl in the car accident in the teaser.
