What’s that you say?  A blog?  By Nole?  Surely you jest!  Yeah, I know.  I finally got off my ass (or more accurately, sat on my ass) and am posting a mega-SPN blog.  I’ve missed blogging about 4 or 5 shows at this point and I’m not going to go back through and watch because most of them are not worth a second viewing.  Sad but true.  When do I ever say that about this show?  I don’t know if the finale or Jensen’s marriage left me more disappointed.  Let’s call it a tie, shall we?

I’ll start with the good.  The Real Dean returned.  I truly did love that episode, where Dean was going to give up and Cas called him out.  Those two were like lovers battling back and forth and ultimately having Cas beat the shit out of Dean.  Best pairing, ever.  I’m no slash fan but Dean and Cas have chem.  I cannot deny this.

I adored when Dean told Sam that he didn’t believe in him either.  It was the first time in a long time that I gasped out loud and felt like I took a punch in the gut at Sam’s expression.  Nothing could have wounded and cut him more.  And in the past, Sam would have screamed at Dean and run off.  This time?  Sam stood by Dean and told him he had faith in him and that’s what gave Dean the strength to dick over Zachariah and kill him (that rocked).

The boys visit to heaven was also fairly decent.  Loved seeing Ashe again and was sad that he didn’t know about Ellen and Jo.  Hopefully they found one another.  I found it interesting that Mary was there but John was not.  Sam’s heaven, though, was so sad, well for Dean anyway.  I think it was seeing that that helped strengthen his disbelief in his brother.

What else?  It was good to see Gabriel AKA the Trickster again and I loved him delivering his message via porno.  Really, the guy was awesome and I think they should find a way to bring him back.

Now, the finale…what the fuck do I say about it?  It was a hot mess from the get go.  It was clear the rings wouldn’t work when they did it in the first 10 minutes of the show.  So there was no suspense there when Devil Sammy told Dean it didn’t work.  Nor was there any surprise when Dean showed up at the cemetery, followed by Cas and Bobby.  I was happy for the Def Leppard soundtrack, because they were my fave band growing up.  Dean and I were made for one another….oops, sidetracked.

I did have a genuine OH NO moment when Cas exploded at the devil’s hand and then Bobby’s neck was broken.  I had always expected one of them to go but not both.  Of course, they didn’t really give us time to mourn them before they were back.

Was I happy that Sam got some redemption and was able to take down the devil?  Yes, for a moment or two.  I didn’t like that it was seeing the little army man that did it, really.  I wished Dean had been enough to get through to him although all his memories were of him and Dean…so I guess that’s okay.  It just…felt flat.  Sam hops in the hole with Michael/Adam and Cas is back and Dean is healed and Bobby’s alive.  What did we learn there?  What resounded?  Sam’s death?  Uh, no, the final scene fucked that up as well.

AND let me take a minute to talk about Chuck.  I was thrilled he was back, you may have figured out that I’m quite fond of the boy but WHAT THE EVER LOVING FUCK?  Chuck is GOD?  Really?  Has he always been God or did God just pop in after Sam and Dean and Cas took off?  Because if he was God the whole time, why didn’t the shark’s tooth necklace alert them?  Why didn’t Cas know?  And why did the archangel come to protect the prophet?  Does he do that for God too?  It sure as hell felt like they stuck that in without thinking about it and it pissed me right the hell off if I”m being honest.  Do I like the idea that God was really there the whole time, not only watching over them but writing out their story?  Sure, but it was sloppy fucking storytelling and I expect a lot more than that with this show.

And then, of course, we cut to Dean settling into family life with Lisa and her kid, which felt like a complete slap in the face.  That woman is NOT important to us, SPN.  She just isn’t.  If you want me to believe Dean is carrying a torch for an ex, bring back the girl from the stupid truck episode, who we know he not only dated for awhile but actually told his secrets to.  Lisa was a weekend fuck!  I’m sorry, but I don’t buy it, at all.  Is it wrong that I’m hoping demon/devil Sammy kills her promptly to start season 6?  Because I am.

And yes, there we have the big ending…Sam’s back.  Or demon version is.  Or he’s still the devil.  He’s evil, because the light went out in his presence and he’s watching his brother stare into his beer while Lisa putters around like the good little woman she is.  WTF?  Can the dev just waltz back out of hell that easily?  No seals required?  Where’s Michael then?   Is Cas going to come back to help Dean?  Will Dean ultimately have to kill Sam then?  I can deal with that, but this…I don’t know.  I didn’t like any of it.

Dean’s back to being defeated and going through the motions, Cas if off angeling and Bobby’s fighting the fight I assume.  Dean’s playing house with the wrong person and Sam’s hopefully going to rectify that (seriously, I will love him if he guts Lisa in the season premiere, all past transgressions forgiven).   There were some very good episodes in the 5th season but it was a huge letdown ultimately.  I wanted a 6th season, before, to get more Dean.  Now I want it to wipe out the shit that they spewed in the finale, not that I have faith on them improving anything anymore.  I hope they prove me wrong.  Bitterly disappointed.

How cute was old man Dean?  I thought he was awesome.

Another Supernatural with an old school feel but definitely enjoyable.  This is, of course, because of snarky, grumpy old man Dean and Bobby combining forces to give Jack Lemon and Walter Matthau a run for their money.  I won’t pretend that I was not slightly annoyed that Sam, the least experienced poker player, is the one to save the day, but that’s a minor bitch that I can get over.

Dean was no match for the witch, apparently Sam was.

Sam & Dean go to a town that has a 25 year old man die of old age.  Turns out there’s a poker game where you bet years of your life and that guy lost.  Dean calls Bobby to discuss the happenings and Bobby, clearly unhappy with life, hits town himself and loses 25 years.  Dean takes on Patrick, the manwitch as Dean calls him (hee) and loses 50, 25 that he gives to Bobby to return him to normal and then 25 for himself that he loses, making him 80 years old.

We don’t get to see the loss, we just get to see Sam come back from his burger run and encounter an old man that he is about to shoot before Dean tells him to relax, it’s him.  Sam tells him he looks like Emperor Palpatine, Bobby calls him John McCain and Dean refers to himself as the old chick in Titanic.  Awesome.  Kudos to the actor playing Old Dean because he had the tone and mannerisms down.

Hilariously, Dean’s bacon cheeseburger gave him acid reflux, thus he had to give up his beloved food.  Dean wants to be Benjamin Buttoned back into burger shape and then he hits on this woman at the hotel who tells him he’s just like her grandfather.  Bobby and Sam are quite amused, as was I.  Silly girl, if she only knew what she was really laughing at.

Patrick the witch fakes getting hit by a car and then steals it, much to Dean’s amusement.  He admits to rather liking him.  They follow him to his place to try to steal back the chips.  The elevator isn’t working so Bobby can’t go up and they have to use the stairs and poor Dean is about ready to die at the second floor.  The chip plan fails, as it’s not the chips it’s the chanting and Patrick and his wife catch them in the act.  He lets slip that Dean’s heart isn’t very good since he ate like crap all those years, then claps at Sam a few times and gives him an STD.  He starts walking funny and Dean tells him he got the clap and laughs.  Hee.

All fun aside, the meat of this episode really came when Bobby railed at the boys about wishing that he had the strength to kill himself.  He wants to play again because he has nothing to live for.  He hates watching others fight while he’s stuck in the chair doing nothing.  Jim Beaver was great in this scene.  I didn’t like that Dean only said his name and didn’t do anything else but it led up to what I wanted in the end so I won’t bitch about it.

Female witch woman met the guys back at their hotel room teaching them how to reverse the spells.  It turns out she lost her child and she’s lived a long time and is just tired and wants to go.  We get to see that Patrick does have a heart, willingly giving 13 years to an old man even though he could have beaten him.  Sam goes to play Patrick while Dean & Bobby work on getting the items needed to reverse the spell.

Dean keeps whining and complaining about sore elbows and a hurt back.  He and Bobby just trade insults back and forth.  After Bobby tells Dean to stop bitching, he informs him that killing him is on his bucket list.  Meanwhile Patrick is taunting Sam about being at the kiddie table, not being respected by Dean to handle things himself.  Sam keeps eying a toothpick that Patrick is sucking on, he steals it and gives it to Dean to use in the spell.  It turns out that Dean trusted him enough to let him provide the distraction while they gathered their items.  Unfortunately, Patrick was on to him and made sure he got the wrong toothpick.  The spell failed and Dean was not yet pretty again, much to his consternation.

Patrick is pissed about Sam cheating and nearly magics him to death but wifey steps in and admits that she’s the one that told the boys how to kill them.  He orders Sam to keep playing while Dean and Bobby try to get some more DNA at the witches apartment.  Patrick taunts Sam about being a cautious player but turns out that Sam had nothing in his hand, bluffed him cold.  Patrick tells him that if they had time he could make a player out of him; Sam says he has plenty of time and Patrick tells him he has minutes.  He won’t let Sam go, so Sam has to play on as Dean collapses.

I did like that Sam’s immediate instinct was to go after Dean and he played recklessly once he knew he was in danger.  That felt like old times with the brothers, putting each other first.  He was in full on panic mode and just threw his chips in without even looking at his cards.  He wanted the game to be over so he could get to Dean.  Patrick had a full house, fours and aces, and thought he’d won but Sam had four fours to take the pot and save his brother.  Patrick tells him there’s more to him than meets the eye.  We knew that already.

While I loved old man Dean, I shall always prefer Pretty Dean.

Bobby’s panicking because Dean wasn’t answering him and out comes Pretty Dean, dancing and clicking his heals.  Bobby calls him an idiot in that special Bobby way, relief in his tone.  Patrick plays cards with his wife and she loses so she can die and go be with their daughter.

Dean comes in with his beloved cheeseburger while Sam runs out to get his booster shot to clear up his clap. hehe  Dean apologizes to Bobby for giving him shit and calling him an idiot.  Then he informs Bobby that he’s not useless and makes Bobby stay and listen to him.  I’ll quote again.  “You don’t stop being a soldier because you got wounded in battle.  No matter what shape you’re in, bottom line is you’re family.  I don’t know if you’ve noticed but me and Sam, we don’t have much left.  I can’t do this without you.  I can’t.  So don’t you dare think about checking out.  I don’t wanna hear that again.”  Bobby looks teary and says okay.  Dean tells him good and Bobby thanks him and asks if they’re done feeling their feelings so they can get out of the room before they start growing lady parts.  Dean throws his cheeseburger away and then calls him Ironsides again, Bobby’s a little perturbed that he seems to have acquired a nickname.  He looks up and sighs, was it a sigh of acceptance?

I loved the conversation.  I was so surprised that Dean didn’t say much of anything when Bobby talked about eating his gun but he just kept it and dealt with it when he was back to normal.  He needed to let Bobby know just how important he was to them.  I was hoping for him to say something about him being more of a father than his own was but he didn’t go that far.  Still, the family aspect was heavily addressed.  It made me fear for Bobby’s future, honestly, but he’s okay for now and that’s what matters.  Really good scene for Jensen and Jim.  All the emotion was there and I felt like I’d been punched in the gut I was so into it.

I like episodes like this, that have something so very important to say without being over the top about it.  I truly hope Bobby has more coming up that allows him to feel useful.  I think Dean will make sure of it.  So, there you have it, next week we get the TV one, with the return of Chuck it appears. Yay for Chuck!  We’ll see on the episode, it’s a few too many humorous ones in a row for my taste but I’m keeping an open mind.  Oh, and I forgot to say it, but yeah.  I totally found Old Man Dean attractive.  What can I say?  I like his attitude and find it sexy, that didn’t change even though he was wrinkly.  Don’t worry, I’m calling the psychiatrist next week.  Instead of talking, I’ll just have them read this blog and a few of my other ones mentioning my weird attractions. hehe

I do so love the Fed look!

I do so love the Fed look!

This week’s Supernatural, I Believe The Children Are Our Future, was yet another blast back to season one, at least it felt that way to me.  Other than the presence of Castiel, there was not much that screamed season 5 to me.  I can’t decide if that’s good or bad.

I haven’t a lot to say about the storyline but I did enjoy seeing Dean eating with relish and having fun again.  However, it irritated me because what I worried about last week seemed to be coming to pass.  The brothers seem fine with one another again and they appeared to take over the earlier roles.  Sam the sensitive one, reaching out to the child, and Dean the wisecracking one.  But you know what I learned in my Supernatural Season 1 rewatch this summer?  It was the Dean was the one who connected with kids, not Sam.  Before that rewatch I would have thought that but I was wrong.  Oh well, I don’t mind a little role reversal now and then.

See? Another perfect casting job, the kid is angelic and scary at the same time.

See? Another perfect casting job, the kid is angelic and scary at the same time.

So it seems that the anti-Christ kid is gone, apparently surfing somewhere instead of picking sides with the angels or the demons.  I highly doubt we’re going to see the kid again which is actually pretty sad.  Once again, casting came through and found an adorable child that had the ability to be both endearing and menacing at the same time.  Why can they find perfect kid actors time and again but fail so epically with females?  I don’t get it.  Another post for another day I suppose.

Sam & Dean were not too pleased at the thought of killing a kid.

Sam & Dean were not too pleased at the thought of killing a kid.

There were two truly interesting things that came out in this episode, I thought.  The first was Sam wanting the kid to know the truth and to make the choice that he himself didn’t.  He wanted to see someone do the right thing after his failure last season.  It was kind of heartbreaking to see just how important that was to him.  I liked that he wanted to tell Jesse the truth and that he ended up doing it.  I consider that self-revelation an important part in his step to redemption (which is nowhere near complete).

A toy Castiel? I think I know someone who would like to play with him. hehe

A toy Castiel? I think I know someone who would like to play with him. hehe

The other thing that really caught my eye was the relationship between Sam and Castiel and it’s parallel to Sam & John Winchester.  Particularly in regards to Dean.  Cas called Sam out on his making the wrong choice and Sam really had no response to that.  Dean, ever the peacemaker, again tried to step in.  It just felt like he’d been sucked back into that middle role that he constantly was with his brother and father and I felt for him.  I like that Cas is still holding Sam responsible for his actions as I get the feeling that Dean is beyond it now.  I know what we all discussed last week but Dean didn’t jump on Cas’ side when he was challenging Sam, nor did he rush to Sam’s defense, so maybe he’s really and truly in the middle.  I don’t know.  I was glad that the boys both refused to kill Jesse, they haven’t changed that much that killing a kid would be alright with them.  I think, even though Cas said Sam wouldn’t hesitate last year, that he just might have.  At least until the end of the season.

I’m really kinda sad that they had Jesse just vanish instead of heading off to Bobby, I kinda liked the thought of him kicking it with the kid and practicing the mojo all over the car yard.  It would have been cute and made Bobby feel more involved.  I miss Bobby.

I’m of two minds on the return of Dean’s juvenile sense of humor.  On the one hand, I love seeing him having fun and laughing again.  On the other hand, there’s a time and a place and it doesn’t feel like now is the time or place.  But then again, anytime you see an angel sit on a whoopie cushion it’s a pretty awesome thing.  Cas’ face and Dean’s reaction were spot on, as always.  I also grinned when he started eating the ham after he cooked it with the joy buzzer.  I always love Dean, even when he’s being juvenile.

So that’s really all I have to say about the episode.  I’m sick and a little less chatty than I am most days so that’s part of the brevity here, the other part is this episode didn’t do much to advance overall plot since I don’t think we’ll see Jesse again.  It did set up some Cas/Sam conflict and give Sam another chance to show some remorse, but other than that it was just an okay episode.  We’re off next week and then old man Dean will be in my life.  If I find him attractive I’m going to have to look into counseling.  That might disturb me more than my Dark Edward fetish.  See you in two weeks and we’ll find out.

This episode kinda made me feel this angry.

This episode kinda made me feel this angry.

I could yap about the mystery of the week and rail about Paris Hilton touching MY Jensen for a few paragraphs but that would be pointless.  Because really, that wasn’t what mattered (although I do hope that Jensen disinfected after shooting) this episode.  I thought about titling this blog Sammy Steps Up because it was all about Sam trying to take back some power.

I am not on board with Sam blaming any part of his decision making on Dean; Sam is a big boy and he’s always been driven by either a thirst for revenge, a thirst for power or just a desire to be different from his family.  We saw that from first episode when he pointed out how different he wanted to be from his brother and his father.  This is nothing new with Sam, it’s been that way since we’ve known him.  Did John and Dean shape that?  Sure, but even after he broke away he still had this drive to prove himself that had nothing to do with them.

I will, however, give credence to the fact that Dean has coddled Sam from day one and that did contribute to his desire to have some power and control in his life.  He just chose the way of getting that very badly.

Not sure how I feel about Sam after this episode.

Not sure how I feel about Sam after this episode.

If I am to give allowances to Sam’s behaviors based upon his brother and father’s actions, though, shouldn’t Sam do the same thing for Dean?  Dean has been raised from the time he was 4 years old to protect Sam.  That was his number one job from the moment that Azazel took their mother.  It was how he was raised, drummed into his head over and over by an overbearing, controlling, distracted father.  Big brother is to look out for little brother and that’s what Dean has always done.

I’m not saying that Dean shouldn’t have loosened the reins on his brother, I’m just saying that he had his reasons for not doing so and it’s pretty hard for him to change that behavior, especially now.  He clearly wasn’t being overly controlling of Sam last season when he sneaked away with Ruby…if anything Dean could argue that he should have kept a shorter leash on Sam and it might not have happened.

How many fantasies got started from this scene?

How many fantasies got started from this scene?

Is it just me or did this episode seem to serve as a big “Look at Sam, he’s the smart one, Dean’s lazy and avoiding the real work” type of episode that we used to be exposed to so often in season 1 and 2?  The whole episode felt like a flashback to those times anyway…Dean was the bossy bully and Sam figured everything out while Dean just goofed around and got sarcastic.  I didn’t care for it at all, even though the episode itself was fine.

Sam walking in on Dean’s conversation with Bobby, wherein he basically blamed him for the apocalypse, was just a set up for the other two major talks the brothers had.  Sam wanted to talk about it but Dean continued to blow him off, just as he’s done all season when Sam tried to apologize.  Some would construe that as solely being about Dean’s anger but I choose to think there’s more to it than that and their final conversation gave that some merit.  Sam took responsibility for starting the apocalypse again and Dean pointed out that he broke the first seal himself.  Sam said you didn’t know and Dean said neither did you.  That was his acceptance that though Sam was partially responsible, he didn’t know what he was doing just as Dean didn’t when he started things either.  Dean made Sam come to that realization about himself as well and the blame game seems to be over.

Let me focus back on that second conversation for a minute.  I did like that Sam told Dean that he didn’t want to go back to the way things were because that is what led them to where they are now.  I always say that about having regrets, there’s really not a point because whatever decisions you made then led to who you are now.  I don’t mind Sam stepping up and taking more of a leadership role but he needs to know that comes with taking responsibility for his actions.  He said he does but he still mentions his brother’s own culpability in his choices and honestly, he can’t do that if he wants to be a leader.  He needs to own his own actions…he says he does but if he really did would he say that Dean’s treatment of him led to his choices?  Isn’t it true that Sam made his choices BEFORE Dean even got back from hell?  He was already using the mojo then, after all, and becoming addicted to the power.  So there’s a lot more to it than just “Dean didn’t let me make any decisions” situation.

The more I think about it, the more annoyed I am getting at the way this episode portrayed the brothers.  Like Dean was the puppet master or something?  I don’t know.  It’s bothering me more as I write about it.  rameau, I need you to weigh in and tell me if I’m going way off base here in what was mostly a light episode cause I am working myself up a bit!  hehe

I guess I don’t mind Dean apologizing for being too overbearing with Sam but I’d like Sam saying he was sorry for the crappy way he treated his brother last year as well.  Dean letting Sam drive the Impala was a signal of the trust being back on his end and I’m good with that, though I think Sam has more earning to do.  I guess the writer’s don’t though, this seemed to be their way of reestablishing Sam as the good and just brother.  Scenes for future episodes have me interested, as always (particularly in that scene where Dean is in sunglasses, yum!), but this episode was not anywhere near my favorite after a few stellar ones.  The brothers are back together and we’ll see how it goes.

PS  Just wanted to thank BuddyTV for pointing my little blog out to people, this is officially my biggest blog day yet and I know it’s thanks to Buddy’s tweet.  All you SPN fans, thanks for coming by, I talk about every episode and hope you all come back for more, would love to discuss with you.  Thanks to the new people who have commented, I love it!

Dear God, it's me, Nole.  What is it with me and hot guys in sunglasses?  More please!

Dear God, it's me, Nole. What is it with me and hot guys in sunglasses? More please!

I could do one of my usual scene by scene breakdowns of this week’s Supernatural but honestly I don’t feel like it and I don’t think that’s what is important to highlight this week.  We were back to honest to goodness fighting, albeit with 99% more apocalypse and it felt good to get down to battling again.  It also felt good to see Rufus, Jo and Ellen.  I hope that we’ll see more of them as the year and the war continue.

It was good to see Ellen, Rufus and Jo again.

It was good to see Ellen, Rufus and Jo again.

No, what’s important to talk about is the continuing gulf between Dean and Sam; a gulf that is apparently so wide that they’ve decided to get away from each other for awhile.  I really loved how this episode demonstrated the rift between the boys, beyond the obvious of Ellen calling them out on their behavior, but also showed that Dean still loves Sam, even though he resents what he did.  Dean’s reaction to having to give up that necklace that Sam gave him so many years ago seemed to me to be a nod to the love he still has for his brother, despite everything.

Um yeah, this is solely here because Jensen looks very hot.

Um yeah, this is solely here because Jensen looks very hot.

But that love is not enough anymore, as shown clearly but Dean’s distrust of Sam wanting to go off on his own and his reaction to Sam’s decision to leave the fight.  Also telling was what Dean thought was demons had Sam, he initially ran to the door to go find his brother first and ask questions later but reined himself in to formulate a plan with Ellen rather than run to Sam right away.  Dean’s always been smart but impulsive but he checked his natural instinct to protect his brother.  It wasn’t exactly covert but I thought it was a good way for the writers to let us know just where Dean’s head was at without him talking about it.

Physically close together but emotionally miles apart.

Physically close together but emotionally miles apart.

I found it interesting the way that Ellen greeted Dean with a hug and then a slap but did nothing to Sam.  Even though she said you boys she really focused on Dean.  This could be because of the fact that she definitely knows Dean better, but could it be an indication of something more?  It doesn’t seem like she knew what Sam had done (yet another example of Dean protecting Sam without really doing anything) but it helped to show how isolated Sam truly is right now.  Dean seems to be the important brother; the possible vessel of Michael, the talisman he wears can find God, the old friends/hunters seeming to be rallied around Dean rather than Sam…I found it a very interesting.  I know last season was rather Deancentric but it was still about Sam’s powers, Sam’s importance in the war, Sam’s deceit.  This season right now looks to be about Dean’s importance.  As a Dean girl, I’m not going to complain.

Another interesting nugget we learned was that God was indeed the one who blasted Sam and Dean into an airplane and put Castiel back together again.  For that I say Yay God!  But apparently God’s not hanging in heaven right now, he’s kicking it on earth Dogma style (if Alanis Morrisette makes a cameo this season I demand Chris Rock with her) and Cas needs to find him to get him to battle Lucifer.  Of course, I’m a little confused as to why God doesn’t just hook up with his favorite angel and the boys to do so, seeing as he saved them both a day or so ago.  Why do that and then go into hiding when your ex-pal is back to destroy earth?  I’m sure we’ll get an explanation at some point but that was a little weird.

You're welcome, Rameau!

You're welcome, Rameau!

Also, our favorite angel no longer has healing powers, thus rendering him useless to Bobby.  I had to laugh at Bobby’s reaction to that news…his attitude got passed down to Dean by osmosis because their angry responses to the angels was quite similar.  I also loved seeing that Castiel dry humor back, saying that God was not in a piece of flatbread.  Dammit, I’ll have to throw out that tortilla I’ve been saving that resembled the Virgin Mary!

This episode definitely wasn’t blow me out of the water good but it was a nice segway into the adventures of Dean & Cas.  I am really looking forward to seeing Mischa and Jensen play off each other, I think they’ve got great chemistry together (no, not calling Becky and the slash writers, although that is a lot of pretty!).  I do hope that Dean and Sam are not separated for a long time but I do feel it’s a good direction to take the show for now.  All last season I expected Dean to reach the breaking point with Sam but he never did, until maybe the last couple of episodes.  I think I like this better though, the boys stayed together then despite what was going on because they more or less needed to be.  Now, they have nothing to stop, the apocalypse is here, so they don’t really need to stay together.  While Sam’s soul searching and trying to get his shit together, Dean will hopefully have some in-depth conversations with Castiel and reach a point of forgiveness for his brother.  This is the break we anticipated, it just came later; emotionally they’re miles apart and now they’re physically going to be.  I find that fascinating.

Next week Sam sees Jessica, aka Tyra from Friday Night Lights and Dean and Cas begin their search for God.  Should be fun (and I will probably call her Tyra in the blog, just be prepared!)  I’m interested to see how the boys do apart.  See you next week to discuss it!

Are you there, devil?  It's me, Sam Winchester!

Are you there, devil? It's me, Sam Winchester!

How sweet is it that my favorite returning fall show was the first to return?  The Pretty was back on my screen with a vengeance on Thursday night.  Vengeance, such a pretty word and rather fitting for Supernatural, no?  I loved the episode, naturally, so good to have our boys back.

Dean's expression matched my own, WTF were they doing in a plane as Lucifer rose?

Dean's expression matched my own, WTF were they doing in a plane as Lucifer rose?

Sympathy For The Devil picked up right where we left off last season, with Lucifer rising and our boys in much too close a proximity.  They can’t get out but all of a sudden they’re in an airplane confused as hell.  As was I, of course.  I assumed the angels had gotten our boys to safety but it seems a bigger boy has come out to play this season.  What’s Lucifer without God?

Sam tries several times to apologize for what he’s done but Dean isn’t having it.  I have to admit that I’m glad that the Sam/Dean tension is not going to magically disappear in their need to unite to fight the devil.  I’ll get more into Dean’s speech at the end later, because as usual it was powerful and moving and deserves it’s own discussion as I assume it’s going to be an overriding theme for much of the season.

Chuck!  No more needs to be said, I love him!

Chuck! No more needs to be said, I love him!

Who didn’t smile at the return of the Prophet Chuck?  There is something about that guy that just makes me light up.  I wish he’d go on the road with Sam and Dean, maybe as a new series (what, more Jensen is a bad thing?)  I love that the first thing he did was attack Sam as well.  What, he does deserve a little bit of a beat down doesn’t he?  Dean’s reaction to Sam’s full on Vader was interesting…does he think there’s a demon in his brother for real?

Dean's reaction to "Vader" Sam.  So much in that face.

Dean's reaction to "Vader" Sam. So much in that face.

Now, I knew going in that Misha Collins had been made a regular cast member, so news of Castiel’s smiting by the angels didn’t hit as hard as it could have had I not known or seen his name in the credits.  But still…it hurt to think about our Pretty Cas being smited by an archangel and exploding all over Chuck’s house.  I’m quite glad we were not subjected to the sight of that, for Castiel should never explode.  Preserve the Pretty!  How much did you love that Dean’s first reaction was to go find Cas anyway?

Only Dean Winchester would call an angel an asshat.  I loved his rage at Zachariah.  The angels assumption that Dean would just fall in line cracked me up, do they not know the man at all?  Bonus points for the return of the word “douche.”  Nobody does it like Dean.  I adored that Dean used Castiel’s method of getting rid of the angels and blasted them right out of Chuck’s house.  He’s a sly one, our Dean.  And Chuck’s “this sucks ass” in reaction to the appearance and disappearance of the angels just slayed me.  This show mixes humor in at the oddest times but it works 99% of the time anyway.

I admit it, I am using this picture for it's beauty, although this was from that scene, hehe.

I admit it, I am using this picture for it's beauty, although this was from that scene, hehe.

A small but beautiful moment occurred when Sam gave Dean the hex back he’d made and Dean asked how he knew how to make it to hide them from demons and angels and Sam admitted that it was Ruby.  That pause and that look on his face hit the right note of fear of telling Dean, hesitance and even some shame.  I liked that that made Dean ask about his brother’s potential withdrawal from the demon blood and that it was addressed because I think we’d all be wondering about it.  Supernatural methadone indeed…yay God?  Then Sam tries to apologize again and Dean still won’t listen.  Jensen’s face, not looking at Sam and refusing to discuss it, showed a hint of that anger and hurt that we get to see in full force later.  It was a nice scene that really did a lot but didn’t seem all that significant on first viewing.

The devil's meatsuit, a lonely man who lost his wife and child violently.

I didn’t really get absorbed into the whole “devil finds a meatsuit” thing but I do enjoy the actor they’ve gotten to play him.  He’s already been on two of my favorite shows, Dexter & Lost, so why not get him on a third?  And he can do creepy really well, so bonus.  I like that the devil had to get his permission as well, just like the rest of the angels do, nice continuity.  I felt for the character as the devil screwed with him, showing him his dead wife and reminding him of their murdered child.

Okay, I admit I would probably pull a Becky if I got near Dean.

How beautiful is it that Chuck sent a slash fanfiction writer to meet Sam and Dean?  And that her screenname was SamLicker81?  Of course I still fail to understand why people in love with male characters write them as gay, but it’s hilarious here so who cares?  Of course I wanted to bitchsmack her when she told Dean that he was not what she pictured, but her molestation of Sam just killed me.  How could Dean not be what she pictured?  Devastatingly gorgeous doesn’t work for her?  hehe Oh well, she’s a Sam girl.  She brought the big news that Michael’s sword was lost somewhere, so she served a purpose other than making me laugh.  Her “no” when Sam asked if she could quit touching him was awesome.  I wonder how they got rid of her?

Sam was rather hurt by Bobby's rejection.

Sam was rather hurt by Bobby's rejection.

Alright, I knew in my heart that Bobby was not Bobby when he laid into Sam but it was still effective as all hell, made doubly so because Dean just stood there and didn’t interfere in any way like he normally would have.  The beginning could have been real, anger at him for not listening, but when he told Sam to lose his number after they finished it, if they finished it, that’s when you knew he couldn’t be Bobby.  Sam’s face though, the puppy dog hurt there, really tugged at the heart.

As if that didn’t drive it home, Bobby’s private conversation with Dean really did.  Saying that John was right about Sam all along and they should have possibly killed him.  Again, what resounded here was that though Dean said “Bobby” he didn’t stop him or yell at him for even hinting that maybe they should have killed Sam.  How much does Dean agree with that?  How does he feel about it?  I can’t wait to see that play out over the season.

Yeah, not liking new Meg at all.  Hopefully she was one and done.

Yeah, not liking new Meg at all. Hopefully she was one and done.

Yay for the return of Meg, not so yay with the actress that portrayed her.  But I assume she was a oneshot so maybe the next one will be cooler.  How dare she have kissed him?  Not remotely hot.  Plus Meg was Sam’s girl.  Seeing Bobby with that knife to Dean and the real Bobby come through long enough to stab himself…that was beautiful.  His love for Dean shone through in that moment and brought to mind Daddy John’s own possession.  He peeked out for a minute but only to tell Dean to kill him, all for revenge on Yellow Eyes.  Bobby just again proved that he was the boys “real” father, at least for me.

The boys head to John’s storage locker and find dead demons littering the floor.  Dean’s “Oh thank God, the angels are here” cracked me up.  Zachariah then tells us that Dean is Michael’s sword, or his vessel.  Dean takes this news as only Dean would, with scoffing and anger.  “Life as an angel condom, that’s real fun!”  Of course, Zachariah gets all tough angel on Dean and breaks Sam’s legs to try to get Dean to comply.  Dean won’t.  Dean figures out that they can’t make him let Michael inside so he refuses.  Zachariah threatens Bobby with life in a wheelchair, Dean still says no.  He gives Dean stage 4 stomach cancer, coughing up blood he still says no.  He takes away Sam’s lungs, Dean asks that they just kill them both then.  Zach has no intention of doing so but plans on having lots more fun torturing the boys..angels and demons really aren’t so different are they?

Welcome back my pretty avenging angel!

Welcome back my pretty avenging angel!

Fortunately, in that moment, Castiel returns in a flash of white light.  He quickly kills the other two angels and faces off with Zachariah.  Zach is pretty stunned that Cas is still alive and well and Cas points out that it’s a good question and it’s a good question how Dean and Sam got away from Lucifer since the angels didn’t do it.  It’s not ever stated but it’s pretty heavily implied that God has decided to become an active participant in the war.  Zachariah is scared off and follows Cas’ orders of restoring the boys and leaves.  Castiel puts Noki and Sygil (spelling?) into Sam and Dean to hide them from all angels, including Lucifer.  He confirms that he was dead but disappears instead of telling them how he’s back.  I guess God will be everywhere in this season but not discussed?

I love that Bobby was screaming at his doctor when we returned.  Real Bobby being back was good to see.  Dean’s big speech for Bobby was a true Dean hubris moment.  I loved seeing that, even though he admitted to Sam that it was all bull.  Still, that was Dean, being tough for Bobby and pumping him up when he should be down.  I loved Bobby’s apology to Sam, letting him know he’d never cut him out of his life no matter what he did.  Sam’s relief and pretty smile was touching.

Dean's suppressing a lot of emotion all episode, it was nice to see it come out in the end.

Dean's suppressing a lot of emotion all episode, it was nice to see it come out in the end.

Of course, he doesn’t get to revel in Bobby’s forgiveness for long.  Dean tells him that they don’t have a chance to win this war, not that that’s going to stop him from fighting.  Sam again presses Dean to talk about it, about what Sam did and Dean’s feelings about it and this time he gives in.  Our boys have their best conversations next to the Impala, don’t they?  Dean tells him he tried but he can’t pretend that everything is alright.  It’s not and it’s never going to be.  He chose a demon over his own brother and look what happened.  Sam says he would give anything to take it back and Dean says he knows he would.  Dean tells him that he was the one he depended on the most and Sam let him down in ways he couldn’t even say.  He is having a hard time forgiving and forgetting.  Sam asks what he can do and Dean tells him there’s nothing.  He doesn’t think that they can ever be what they once were and he can’t trust him.  He walks towards the car, glances back at Sam and gets in.

Powerful, much needed moment.  It can’t go back to the way things were, not in one day.  They’re going to have to work to build each other up this whole season and I look forward to watching that play out.  I want to see if Sam’s tempted by blood again and Dean’s reaction to that.  Sam disappearing for an hour or two and Dean’s suspicion over that.  All of it is deserved and necessary.

All in all this was an excellent episode back.  I could have probably done with less Lucifer vessel stuff but I understand that they were establishing the man that would harbor the fallen angel and why he would.  I loved the humor but especially loved the angst.  I’m thrilled the show is back and starting off on a high note.  The season clips ahead, with the return of Ellen and Jo and that other hunter whose name escapes me have me excited.  Back next week with more!

Sam and Dean watch as Lucifer rises.

Sam and Dean watch as Lucifer rises.

There are times when you think you know how something is going to go and you’re completely wrong.  This is one of those times.  There are times when you build something up in your mind only to be disappointed.  This is NOT one of those times.  The season finale of Supernatural, Lucifer Rising,  was not what I expected it to be.  It was not action packed, it was not a brother vs. brother showdown in the end and it did not leave both brothers lying on the ground, possibly dead.  Doesn’t matter though, because it was awesome all the same.  The Winchester boys are not at each others throats any longer and next season hopefully they can repair their rift and work together.  They’re going to have to.

Before I get too deep into it, let me give them props for returning to the “Carry On My Wayward Son” song in the intro.  Nothing could have been more fitting to show what the boys have been through and where they’re at when we pick back up.   I hope they play that song again at the end of the series and that the boys are really at peace and can lay their weary heads to rest.

Not every series could get away with starting their episode out by having a priest terrify and kill a bunch of nuns in a convent, but somehow it works here.  Azazel was inside the priest of course and we got to see the infamous yellow eyes again.  This act took place in 1972, setting into motion the events of today, the pairing up of Azazel, Lillith and that demon bitch Ruby, who we will discuss in more detail later.  But I will say this now…HAHAHAHAH DIE RUBY!!!!  You will SO not be missed.  In a later scene, Father Azazel gets directions from one of the dead nuns telling him that Lillith can break the seal and he has to find a very special child.  Our darling Sammy.

Amazingly Sam started off with some self awareness, admitting that Dean was right about him and he didn’t think he could turn off what was inside him anymore.  Sam took some minor steps towards redemption this episode and though Dean will forgive him, he needs to do a lot more to make things right.

Bobby laid into Dean for giving up on Sam.

Bobby laid into Dean for giving up on Sam.

I adored the talk between Dean and Bobby.  Dean was really and truly done with Sam by that point, questioning whether Sam was even his brother anymore, if he ever was.  I did not approve of Bobby calling Dean a whiny brat, nor do I agree, but I loved what he had to say about John.  He called him a coward and said that Dean was acting like him by pushing Sam away.  Then he got it really right and told him he was a better man than his father ever was and not to be him.  Again, this so brought home season one Dean, who initially thought that being just like dear old Dad was a good thing.  But Dean’s grown up and knows better now, and that speech he got from Bobby, though harsh, was far better parenting than he’s ever gotten in his entire life.  This goes here so I may as well say it now, I’m SO HAPPY that Bobby did not die.  I was very scared and though I wasn’t spoiled, there was talk of a death on Supernatural that would be upsetting.  Where was it?  Cause it sure as hell wasn’t Ruby!  Bobby lives, that’s all that matters!

Dean's rather out of place here, even with the beer and burgers.

Dean's rather out of place here, even with the beer and burgers.

Right after Bobby’s awesome words, Dean got sucked into some hideously tacky hotel type room, complete with gold leaf accents and crap.  Ick.  He looked funny there though.  Cas was there to greet him and then Zachariah showed up.  And to him I say, fuck you, Zach.  First he offers Dean burgers and then Ginger & Mary Ann, then he turns complete ass and informs Dean that all the seals have fallen except one and refuses to tell Dean much more than that.  Dean, as always, gets sarcastic and Zachariah tells him he swore his obedience.  Don’t you know, Zach, that Dean’s going to do what Dean’s going to do and there’s nothing you can say about it?

We then saw Sam and Ruby, who captured Lillith’s baby stealing #2 and had her tied down to get some information on where Lillith would be.  I loved her telling Sam he was “roided up” and calling them A-Rod and Madonna.  Oh, show, you do rock!  Sam proceeds with the torture with nary a care.

Dean leaves Sam an awesome message.

Dean leaves Sam an awesome message.

Meanwhile, Dean is feeling bad and calls and leaves him a beautiful message.  I’ll quote it here.  “Hey, it’s uh…me.  Look I’ll just get right to it.  I’m still pissed and I owe you a serious beatdown.  I shouldn’t have said what I said.  I’m not Dad.  We’re brothers, you know, we’re family and uh no matter how bad it gets, that doesn’t change.  Sammy, I’m sorry.”  And it cuts off.  Now THAT is what makes Dean so damn special.  Yes, Bobby had to push him, but he would have eventually done it anyway.  Words cannot express my ANGER when Sam heard the fake message courtesy of ho-bitch Ruby.  But that message was just wonderful.  It was truly Dean. I’m still pissed at you, I’m still gonna kick your ass, but I love you and I always will.  I shouldn’t have called you a monster, you’re not one, you just have some messed up stuff going on within you but together we can fight it.  That’s what he was saying.  Love.

Speaking of demon bitches, Ruby sure enjoyed watching Sam torture demon Cindy McClellan (for those of you uninitiated, that is yet another TWoP shout out, Cindy did some of the series recapping for the site when Demian was out for a couple months).  She stepped in to stop him from killing her though so he could “roid up” on her blood before he went after Lillith.  Cindy got the idea of letting the human she was controlling and let her try to appeal to Sam’s humanity.  It was a good idea and it worked for awhile.  The real Sam peeked out of the demonlike Sam and wasn’t on board with hurting an innocent person who just happened to be possessed.  But Ruby talked his gullible self into it and he threw Cindy in the trunk, screaming the whole way.

I couldn't find a picture of the "oh shit" face so I went with angry, hot Dean.

I couldn't find a picture of the "oh shit" face so I went with angry, hot Dean.

I love how that was immediately followed by Dean, bored in the stupid angel room, knocking a statue over as a sign of his displeasure.  Hilariously, Castiel was right behind him and Dean got kind of an “Oh shit” look on his face.  He asked Cas to take him to Sam but he wouldn’t and Dean didn’t back down.  He got right into Castiel’s face and demanded that he get him to his brother.  Of course, Cas then made the door disappear and Dean was stuck, but I did love that he wasn’t about to rescind his demands, even from an angel.

Ruby got more and more transparent as the episode went on, not that there was any doubt that she was an evil bitch anyway.  She started pushing Sam harder and harder when he started showing signs of disinterest in the original plan.  He didn’t want to drink the girl and he actually said that he thought maybe Dean had been right all along.  You think, Sam?  Then of course she used the phone message against him, turning Dean’s beautiful message into one filled with hate.  I loathe her.  That little smirk she gave when Sam heard that message that she changed…ugh.  I am so glad she died.

Zachariah tells Dean the angels want the Apocalypse.

Zachariah tells Dean the angels want the Apocalypse.

I love that not having a door in the suite of Zach and Cas (cute reference by the way) did not deter Dean and he tried to make his own using one of the hideous statues.  Of course his hole disappeared, but it was great all the same.  As was his “son of a bitch” when the hole went away.  Then Zachariah reappeared and Dean demanded some answers and finally got some.  Of course they were disturbing and quite uncool, but answers they were.  Zach let him know that Lillith was going to break the seals and admitted that he didn’t want it stopped.  Apparently the angels want to bring on the battle, a battle they plan to win, and bring paradise on earth.  Dean mentions the billions of people who will die during the “pissing contest.”  Zach poopooed that and referred to it as a planetary enema.  He knew Dean was contemplating attacking him but dissuaded him from doing so.  Then Dean tells him Sam will stop her and Zachariah admits that Sam has a part to play and he intends to see him play it.  He tells Dean that he’s still the chosen one, the one will stop it.  Not the Apocalypse but Lucifer himself.  Dean is completely blown away and asks where God is in all this.  “God?  God has left the building.”  Okay, so what exactly does that mean?   God is not on board with this, I hope, but somehow the angels have seized power?  I can only hope this means God will be on the side of Castiel, Dean and Sam because they’re kinda gonna be out there on their own, aren’t they?

Castiel tries to defend a cause he doesn't really believe in.

Castiel tries to defend a cause he doesn't really believe in.

Castiel then shows up as Dean tries to call Sam again.  Dean wants to know what they’re going to do to Sam and Cas tells him Sam’s going to do it to himself.  Dean asks him why he’s there and Castiel tells him he’s sorry how it ended.  Dean responds by punching him, hehe, hurting himself but pretending he didn’t.  Cas starts spouting off on destiny and Dean won’t hear of it.  He tells him it’s all lies and a way to keep them both in line.  Dean tells him what’s real is people in families and Castiel asks him what is so worth saving.  He sees all the pain in the world, Dean’s guilt and anger and confusion.  He tells him he’ll be at peace in paradise.  Dean makes him look at him and tells him to take his peace and shove it, pain is better than being a “Stepford bitch in paradise”.  I loved this whole scene.  Dean appealing to that humanity that has always lived in Castiel.  Cas tells him if he helps him, they’ll be hunted and they’ll die.  Dean tells him that if there’s anything worth dying for, this is it.  Dean calls him a spineless, soulless son of a bitch and says he doesn’t care cause he’s already dead.  Cas tries to speak and Dean tells him they’re done and he disappears.  Just a fantastic moment between two actors who brought their A+ game.  Plus, loads of pretty!

The fake Dean message destroyed Sam's doubts about going after Lillith.

The fake Dean message destroyed Sam's doubts about going after Lillith.

We cut back to Sam who is having his doubts and about to call a halt to everything when he stops and listens to the Dean message.  I outlined the real message above so I’ll do the fake message here.  “Listen to me you blood sucking freak.  Dad always said I’d either have to save you or kill you, well I’m giving you fair warning.  I’m done trying to save you.  You’re a monster, Sam, a vampire.  You’re not you anymore and there’s no going back.”  Those are the key words for Sam.  Calling him a “freak” and a “monster” is enough to set him off.  He tells Ruby to bring out the girl and has his feast of blood, presumably.

Castiel & Dean understand each other.

Castiel & Dean understand each other.

Dean, meanwhile, is finally about to have one of his beloved cheeseburgers when Castiel appears behind him and throws him against a wall.  He draws a knife  and looks into Dean’s eyes, giving him a silent message.  He then cuts his arm open in a nice parallel to Ruby blood giving scenes.  I thought he was going to get Dean to drink but he draws on the wall and uses it to send Zachariah away.  Cas tells him they have to find Sam and that Lillith dying is the final seal.  They head off to see the Prophet Chuck!  I knew he was gonna be back but I was still happy to see him.  Chuck was busy trying to buy some women for sex, since there’s not going to be a tomorrow.  Hilarious. Chuck tells them where Sam is and the archangel appears, Cas sends Dean to the convent and stays with Chuck to face whatever is coming.  Chuck, hilariously, puts his arm around him and removes it when Cas looks at him.  Love.  Deep and abiding love for those two.

My second favorite moment of the night.

My second favorite moment of the night.

Lillith starts her ceremony and Sam shows up to stop her, first killing all her minions with nary a sound.  He pins Lillith to the alter and Ruby sees Dean coming and shuts the doors, cutting him off from his brother.  Sam tells Lillith he’s been waiting for this for a long time and commences with mojo.  But even as he’s doing it, he can hear Dean calling him and he stops.  And that, right there, is a great thing.  Sam can still hear Dean in the midst of his finally getting at Lillith.  She pushes the right buttons, though, and taunts him and calls him a freak and a monster.  So, of course, he kills her, his eyes going all the way demon black.  I thought for sure we had lost him for good then.

Lillith's blood opens the seal.

Lillith's blood opens the seal.

Lillith’s blood started to flow into a circle and Ruby tells him he did it.  Sam asked what he did and Ruby told him he opened the door and Lucifer was free.  Sam said, no he stopped her and Ruby then tells him that Lillith was the last seal.  Sam is horrified.  Ruby talks about how nobody knew what she was doing and how awesome she was to lie that whole time.  Sam tries to use the mojo on her but he’s all out of it from hitting Lillith.  He tried to accuse Ruby of poisoning him with her blood but she points out that it was all Sam’s choices that brought them there.  He was the only one who could do it apparently, the chosen one.  Just like with Dean, Lillith tells Sam he’s going to have anything he wants as payment.

Holy crap was Dean beautiful as he headed toward Ruby.

Holy crap was Dean beautiful as he headed toward Ruby.

Dean breaks down the door though and she tells him he was too late.  In my favorite moment of the night, Dean says “I don’t care” and Sam grabs her arms and Dean stabs that demon bitch.  Sam says he’s sorry and a hole opens in the floor.  Dean grabs him and says “Sammy, let’s go” but Sam holds him as well and says “He’s coming” and we’re awash in white light…the second time in a day that one of my series ended with a white screen.  Clearly my shows want to torture me some for good measure, leaving me hanging like that.

Farewell, Ruby, you will not be missed!

Farewell, Ruby, you will not be missed!

Well, I got slightly wordy…what else is new?  But so much happened and I just wanted to capture it all.  I taped this episode so I could watch Grey’s but I flipped over on commercials and got up and watched pretty much the whole show live.  That’s how much I had to see it, how much I had to know.  I couldn’t even wait til today to watch.

To me, the two most important things that happened were that Castiel chose Dean and Sam and Dean seem to be together again.  Cas turned away from the grand angelic plan of world conquering and tried to stop the Apocalypse by getting Dean to Sam.  They were not successful but somehow I don’t think that is going to matter to Zachariah and his fellow angels who are in favor of the plan.  I really and truly hope that the “God’s left the building” thing indicates that the angels are working on their own and that a higher power may be shining down on our boys.

I don’t know if Sam and Dean are back to being fine yet, I’m quite sure that they have some work to do, but Sam does appear to be truly horrified by what he did and remorseful about it.  They will clearly have to have a major talk (once they get away from Lucifer that is) and apologies need to be said.  I hope Sam gets to hear Dean’s real message sometime.  Maybe it’ll still be in his phone and he’ll hear it by accident and be properly touched?  When it came down to it though, even when Sam was at his darkest, he heard his brother.  That makes all the difference in the world, doesn’t it?  I think that they can be repaired, but I know when Sam said he was sorry that Dean’s face didn’t say, all’s well, no problem.  So we have to wait some 4 or 5 months to see that play out don’t we?

I’m sorry for all the yammering, I’m really trying to wrap my mind around everything.  I feel I have written a lot without saying anything.  Sam’s major weakness is pride, he will not back down if someone calls him a monster or a freak.  Ruby and Lillith used this against him the whole time.  Dean can’t really lord it over Sam that he was used by Ruby because Dean was also being used by the angels at the same time.  It’s just that Dean’s lucky enough to have one angel who listened to him and believed in him enough to break ranks.  I love that that was so well set up…we saw that Castiel questioned decisions along the way and that he truly didn’t agree with some of the things he was asked to do.  It made his break all the more real.  I’m thrilled that Misha Collins has been added to the regular cast; the chemistry between him and Jensen is palpable and I shall definitely look forward to he and Sam meeting up again.

It seems instead of battling one another, or good battling evil, we’re going to have our guys battling both good and evil.  That’s quite an ambitious undertaking and I do hope the show is not biting off more than it can chew, but I am on board from start to finish.  The finale may have been different than I thought it would be but it didn’t begin to disappoint.  The summer cannot end soon enough!
