I'mmmmma back. Yes I am. More or less, anyway. Here be the notes on episodes 11 and 12 - I just spent an hour and a bit flicking through season five so far, because I was seriously unable to remember bits of it yesterday. But it's all good now!
As always, notes made at the time are in italics and afterthoughts are in normal font.
Episode Eleven - Sam, Interrupted
"We are insane" on the previously on? *intrigued*
Psych hospital? A monster that killed... her roommate. "There is no such thing as monsters" - yeah, and why don't you add "this day can't get any worse", what could happen? Some people really need to learn to touch wood XD
Sam's pretending to be a patient? LOL telling the truth. Dean's face! "His name's Castiel and he wears a trenchcoat." I always love it when this show plays on the fact that it's more than a bit surreal, hehehe.
Full check-up, lol. *giggles at boys*
Dean internalising :( I love that throughout this, despite clearly not believing him, the shrink was actually fairly spot-on.
"dangerously codependant" *cuddles boys* Sad and kind of true; but I guess outside of the context of, you know, THE APOCALYPSE, their relationship could be considered a bit unhealthy.
Dean's shrink! I like her already. Love the question swap.
"This place gives me the creeps" *pets*
SNOG! :D This was hilarious. Good fun for a red herring.
Uh oh, another "suicide"... a hole all the way through to his brain? Ew, Sam! *laughs* put it back, quick!
Haha, Dean, honestly. Maybe it's Dean's shrink? I must've guessed about four different people, this episode is so disorienting.
A wraith? Listen out for "SHIIIIIIRE, BAGGGGINNNSSS", then... Hm, so anyone. Maybe the doctor from the start? You know you're a Doctor Who fan when you capitalise "doctor" when you handwrite things >.>
N'aw Dean opening up. It is the Doc! Ohhhh no it isn't! Ohhh yes it is!
"I can't." N'aw, poor thing.
Doesn't the building have some kind of security cameras? I always wonder this. Though I guess they wouldn't have them in patients' rooms.
It's not him?
Sam's dosed *giggles* Ohhhh drugged up Sam :D So funny.
Maybe it IS Dean's shrink? If she can trick the eyes...
N'aw Sammy XD
"All you do is fail." Wait, what? She's not there! O.O That is... clever and terrifying. So is there something in the hospital making Dean nuts...?
"There's no such thing as monsters" Sam lost it or Sam playing up?
I am SO CONFUSED. O.O Castiel, get here and pull the boys out! Now! :( :( I keep getting to bad situations and just wanting Cas to come and zap them out. He doesn't seem to be listening to me...
The monster makes people insane? Phone Castiel. Phone Castiel. <--- you see what I mean? I suppose Castiel wouldn't have been affected, which would have helped. But the boys don't need his help ninety percent of the time, they're perfectly capable. I really should worry so much :) Casiel will fic - saliva? SNOG GIRL.
Dean not stepping on the cracks *pets*
Gotcha! Nurse woman!
She's still alive?
"That rage? That's all you." :( Ew he snapped it off! O.O Run, boys, run! "I'm mad at everything." :( Sam Sam Sam :( Oh my boys, what am I going to do with you?
Episode Twelve - Swap Meat
This was an excellent, fun episode; and there was one part that (although I didn't twig until quite late) genuinely put me on the edge of my seat. So, here we go....
Hi Sam. What's with you? You're acting - like someone... oh, this is going to be some kind of body-snatching episode, isn't it? Jared you are hilarious. Ooo, so - who's the kid impersonating my Sammy? You know you watch too much Sci-Fi/Fantasy when...
Right, let's go back.
Friends of John's? Cool, poltergeist? Creepy. Lol healthy Sam. XD There's the kid, on the till! *intrigued*
Watch out Sam, a bodysnatcher/shapeshifter is about - or, alternately, a dude with a dart gun. XD This was a nice surprise, hahaha.
Haha, clothes change. N'aw puzzled!Sam. Look in the mirror! N'aw, Sammy! *cuddles him* He's so cuddle-worthy for this whole episode, mostly because he's so confused.
Gary, you dork *grins* Trying to figure out the new him :D "Can I drive?" This should be fun :D *winces* Oops! Dean *pets* I really like Gary, he was a fun character.
The kid ditched the phones! Poor Sam :) Also, Gary - not stupid. He really does pull this off pretty efficiently, given the circumstances.
"you little satanic bastard" *sniggers* Sam, you have no clue how to act normally, do you? *pets* I like the sister.
Gary's not doing bad as Sam with the research.. hehehehehehehe. *laughs at Sam* Very bad book indeed.
I like the way they've used the actors... like, instead of having Jared play a different character all the way through... the actor goes with the character instead of with the body. It's a cool way to do it, usually they seem to do it the other way around.
Dean seems to be getting suspicious... kid, what are you doing?! Ouch, poltergeist. Nice going kiddo.
The friends are in on it?! Genuinely surprised me, that. This episode kind of reminds me of 'The Monster at the End of this Book', in the sense that it starts out as a one-off funny episode, and become something important to the plot. The latter element isn't in this one as much - Gary isn't nearly as important as Chuck (or he isn't that I know of). But still... do you know what I mean?
Come on Dean, figure it out. Ah, back to the start. *giggles*
Hell's most - ahh, crap. Price on Dean's head. I like the girl. A bounty on Dean's head. Uh oh. Don't summon a demon, stupid! This is where it started to get more serious, and I thought that would be the limit of it, but I'd missed something vital.
Well done Dean!
Possessed. Love the demon recognising Sam... crap, Gary could say yes to Lucifer. O.O WHY DIDN'T I FIGURE THAT OUT?! This is what really freaked me; I hadn't made that connection at all. But Sam is in a much more vulnerable position than you think he is at the start of the episode...
"I want my reward!" *facepalm* Stupid kills... "tastes like moron" *sniggers* Pompous brat. Still.
Noo, demon! Come on Sam, come on Sam :(
"You gotta meet the boss." Uh oh uh oh uh oh. Come on kid, you're smarter than this... *shivers at the remembered tension*
Careful demon, you can't damage the vessel... Joint exorcism! HELL YES! :) This was fantastic, it really was. So damn cool!
Sam's back! *cuddles* "If you were of voting age..." lol Dean.
"She doesn't like Satan, you moron, she likes you." HA! Great ending. Great ending.
That's all for today, sorry if it's a bit briefer than usual. Next review, if all goes according to plan, should be up on Monday. To those of you who follow me for other things, I've got half a dozen ideas for fics buzzing around so hopefully I'll be putting something up soon.
