At the end of the world, don't you want these two standing beside you? Or laying on top of you? Or...

Free To Be You And Me was an apt name for this week’s Supernatural episode but I rather enjoyed Dean’s “Personal space” comment to Castiel and decided to use that as my title instead.  I was definitely able to see where the slash fic writers get their inspiration this week, the Cas/Dean personal space moment was rather fraught with pretty, wasn’t it?

I guess the thing that I most take away from this episode is the belief that this season really does have to be it for the show.  How can it not be? If Sam is indeed Lucifer’s vessel while Dean is Michael’s, then one has to destroy the other in the end, unless they somehow find a way NOT to be vessels.  I know last season looked like a brother vs. brother showdown but it looks like they delayed the inevitable to this season, right?  Well, we’ll explore the heavy stuff later, I’d rather focus on the adorable first.

I love when Castiel lies or attempts to.  Adorable.

Dean + Castiel + lying= hilarity & awesomeness.  That’s my quadratic equation right there (first and last math reference I’ll make on this site, unless Days brings Max back I guess).  I was giggling all through the scene in the police station when Dean was trying to convince the cop that Castiel was in the FBI and Cas kept trying to tell the guy the truth.  I even loved his little upside down flip of the FBI identification.  So cute.  And then blurting that it’s angels & demons battling at the gas station while Dean kept trying to cover up what he was saying and turn it around…just adorable.  I love Cas’ utter inability to lie.

This is the face Castiel was sporting in the whore house.  Awesome.

Then, of course, we had the adventure at the Den of Iniquity.  The look of pure terror on Castiel’s face was priceless. (I’ll get a screencap later, Supernatural Series doesn’t have them up yet).   Mischa Collins totally owned this episode.  I knew he’d screw up his devirginization but it was cute that he did it by telling the girl that her daddy issues were wrong.  And how much did I love that Dean set out to get him laid anyway?  It was so Dean!

You know, before he even said it I was thinking to myself that it was damn good to see Dean having fun again.  Then he told Cas that he was and that he hadn’t laughed like that in years and I got to wondering when the last time he had fun really was.  That will require a marathon SPN watch that I have no time for but I will keep it in mind.  The simple truth of it was, Dean finally feels free and he seems to be enjoying it.  He’s not letting worries of Sam get him down anymore…I don’t think we’ve ever seen a Dean unencumbered before and I think I’m definitely going to enjoy it while it lasts.  I imagine things will get dark for him soon enough but right now I’m going to enjoy Dean’s road alone.  I hope Cas comes back to him soon though.  God Quest 2009 will only be fun if the two of them are together.

Like Dean and Castiel, I do not subscribe to Raphael’s belief that God is dead.  Maybe he’s just in a coma (yeah I went to the Dogma well again, sue me).  Maybe God is just laying low because he doesn’t know who to trust, seeing as some of his angels were busy starting Armageddon.  Time will tell, I suppose, but I figure if we’ve got the devil, God is lurking somewhere.

Speaking of El Diablo (I could play with devil names all day long), he’s apparently searching for Sam.  He can’t find him physically but he can get into his mind I guess, thus he sent Jessica to make him feel like crap and prime the pump for future vessel inhabitation.  That is apparently not a word but I like it so it stays.  Sam is kicking it in a bar working under the name of Keith and avoiding the advances of the waitress.  Libby?  I don’t really care, she was just there to bring out Sammy’s story and witness the showdown with the hunters.

I am not on board with the sideburns, Sammy.  The shirtlessness worked though.

I find it interesting, like I did last week, to see fellow hunters react to Sam now.  I think he’s going to run into this issue all year long and being separated from Dean isn’t going to help matters any.  I didn’t expect them to try to force Sam to drink the demon’s blood but that was a pretty good scene I thought.  Libby got to see what Sam’s demon really is and learn that maybe some things are indeed unforgivable.  When she told Sam that nobody could be that bad or do something so heinous that they couldn’t be forgiven I snorted.  Hello, chick, crack a history book, you’ll find plenty of people who were evil and don’t deserve our pity.  Dumbass.  Not that I include Sam in this category, but I thought it was a dumb statement anyway.

You're my vessel!  Who me?  Yes, you!  Couldn't be! Yep it's you!

You're my vessel! Who me? Yes, you! Couldn't be! Yep it's you!

So now we have Sam swearing up and down that he will NEVER invite Lucifer into himself.  Great.  Just like he would NEVER drink demon blood and betray his brother and lose control.  Becoming a pariah with his fellow hunters, estranged from his brother, alone…yeah that’s a recipe for a Sam disaster in the making, isn’t it?

Let’s say Sam and Dean do become Lucifer and Michael, respectively, and somehow manage to come out alive.  According to Castiel, slobbering in a mental ward is the best case scenario.  Unless of course God decides to show up then and restore our lovelies.  I don’t know.  I’m very intrigued by this idea of Dean vs. Sam carrying out all the way to the bitter end.  It looks like we’ll get a preview next week of a future showdown, complete with a pothead Castiel for giggles.  This episode wasn’t an instant classic (except for the Castiel stuff, that was priceless) but it does have me excited for what is to come.  Which I guess is the important thing.  See you next week for more discussion of what is and what may be.  In the meantime, I’ll work on invading Dean’s personal space…for my diary of course. hehe.
