And it took less than 100 episodes...

Awwwwwww

Even if the rest of the Season is crap, I will always have this.

Namely TEH HUG. So Castiel was introduced in episode 61 of the show, this was episode 151, making it 90 episodes from here to there.

And the entire scene. It was wonderful to see. And heh, Benny was acting like a protective boyfriend while Cas was acting... like a protective boyfriend. *g* No wonder Dean`s wires are crossed somewhat.

Speaking of, I have limited faith in their ability to bring this Purgatory PTSD storyline to a satisfying conclusion which somewhat tampers my enjoyment of it now. So Dean is ruthless, hard-edged and primal, I think they mean to shock me with his behaviour but I watch others shows where this wouldn`t be a blib on the radar screen so I`m not that shocked.

Also, it`s a bit up-and-down, isn`t it? The character still has lighthearted, goofy moments which makes it a bit hard to swallow the "slow steps to utter darkness" anvils.

I don`t like the callousness shown to demonic hosts but are you kidding me, that has been happening for freaking years now. With all characters. And noone got "evol" anvils for it. So ahahahaha, show. That ship has sailed. When they strung up some poor fuckers in Suck Song to drain them of their blood for Sam to guzzle down, it was presented as part of the "heroic plan". No going back from there to here.

Anyway, Jensen looks to be having fun again. And after the shit of the last couple of years, I`m happy to see it.

I liked Samandriel. He was cute and softspoken and what I think an angel should be. Probably means he is going to end up evoool, too. *g*

One of Carver`s ticks has always been giving Sam super-genius moments that go waaaaaayyyyyyyyy over the top for me. And they pretty much still do.

The Tiger Mom was actually fun. I had feared the worst, another bitchy disaster a la Misery here but thankfully they avoided that. Good thing we`ve seen the last of Kevin for a while because while I like the character, he just doesn`t work in it longterm.

The last scene? I tentatively think it is a red herring and misdirection. Because, well, with everything that came before, why should Dean leave him there? To get out? He could have done that presto after meeting Benny. And he doesn`t look like he can`t stand another day or two in Purg if it came to it.

I think it was edited to make us believe one thing. I can't see Dean going to all the trouble he did, and putting off leaving just to ditch Cas at the last minute.

I loved Samandriel, I hope we get to see him again. Maybe he's the one to get Cas out.

Me neither. Because why in the heavens would he do it? If he wanted to ditch him, he had - and passed up - like a million chances already.

Hopefully show is smart about this.

You can watch just the one scene here on youtube.

And it`s more than just the hug. Dean crossed Purgatory from one end to another to find and protect Cas and even willingly stayed when he could have left already. Pretty much everything he did there was in the name of finding and saving Cas. *hearts*

Awwww. They love each other so much! :D

See if that show was only about Cas and Dean I'd start watching again in a heartbeat :)

I`m sure someone will put together a vid with the only the Purgatory scenes one day. You could always watch that and pretend it`s webisodes of a shorts show called "Dean and Castiel". *g*

I loved the ep and i think they're trying to tell us it;s not Dean-like to be that heartless, it's not right for him not like it's not the right way to do things when you're at war. Dean is conflicted character and i love it about him. But i wouldn't mind if he'd slit that woman's throat. Yep it'd be a very short season then :)

Me too, I just wish I had more faith in the writing where his character is concerned.
