Trivia time! What movie was featured that’s in my list of top 10 favorites? I can even tell you why it’s a favorite, but that tale would belong under Sea Stories.
Terrible episode title; not too bad actual episode. After the preview of the “teenage girl” monster, the episode actually had a lot of substance. But I’m not here to discuss substance. I am here to make a list.
We got a new Claire earlier this season. This time it’s a new Amelia. I don’t remember the old Amelia, but this one seemed appropriate given her emaciated appearance. Living on angel juice for two years probably isn’t calorie intensive.
What was the name of the episode where Jimmy sacrificed himself? I thought Amelia was present, so why didn’t she know that Jimmy had died? It’s not enough of a conundrum to lose sleep over, but I am curious.
One Supernatural forum discussed why Castiel couldn’t heal Amelia. The consensus was that Cass is losing his powers, and is one of the reasons some fans fear his demise at the end of this season. My consensus is that Cass couldn’t heal Amelia because her injuries were caused by another angel. Nor do I have a sense of foreboding for Castiel. But I’m a simple soul.
2. Miniature golf!
Dean and Claire bond over miniature golf. It’s a great scene of coming to terms with Jimmy’s sacrifice, quoting golf-centric comedies, and giving Dean a lead to follow. Although how he went from putter to angel sword, I’ve no idea.
3. Dean and the Mark of Cain
So the Mark isn’t particularly helpful when going up against a Grigori angel. Well, that’s a bitch.
According to Castiel, Dean snapped when interviewing Ronnie, and he’s getting worse. Personally, it seemed like normal Dean behavior, but in true Supernatural form, one must use any occasion to remind us of the ticking time bomb that is Dean Winchester.
4. Hot Topic
Castiel bough Claire a Grumpy Cat plush from Hot Topic! Grumpy’s a cultural icon I know only from the many plush toys sold last Christmas, as well as Friskies’ limited edition Grumpy Cat canned cat food collections (which Shadow and Romeo enjoy to varying degrees).
Speaking of Hot Topic, here’s a video of Osric Chau (Kevin Tran) as Castiel shopping at a mall. First stop, Hot Topic. It’s “Casplay” cosplay. And it’s hilarious.
Yeah, having Jimmy and Amelia meet in heaven was cheesy, but I did tear up. Twice. I’ll blame it on how nice Misha Collins looked in his dark blue sweater.
