Guys, I know I am spamming you today, and I apologize, but I just noticed something wickedly Meta-worthy in the S6 finale

Soulless!Sam in Sam's head is wearing the same thing that Samifer wore in the Swan Song. Same jacket (the two-snap green), and same plaid shirt. It looks like that's what Hell!Sam is wearing too...so basically Sam's mind constructed the two Sam's from what they looked like when they were divided? Or his last known image of himself whole and with memories....so neat. 

I do not know what this means, but it is awesome. Now I need to find more caps of the clothing from the episode...

ETA: Also, I think I should take the time at some point to do a list of clothing per episode. Sometimes I have questions like "Is that the shirt that Sam wore in X-episode?" and my current categories don't really cut it for one-click answers.

it is kind of meta isn't it?

honestly i didn't realize it and am continually amazed at your clothes spotting skills.

I don't usually pay attention the first time I watch it - but today I was looking at some gifs and fanart people had made and that's when I actually took the time to look at the clothes.

During the actual episode I was too distracted by the fact that Sam was wearing my favourite brown corduroy jacket, and I didn't notice what the other Sam's were wearing. :P

That's awesome! What a clever touch :) And clever you for spotting it.

In the first scene where Sam's running, just before he goes into the bar, there's a shot of a neon sign saying "Castle Storage". I believe that's the storage place where John's locker is, the one where they encountered Zachariah & Co. in 5.01.

I think that's pretty interesting too, but I'm not sure what it means.

Indeed! I noticed that too...also, the Nite Owl was the hotel they stayed at in Live Free or Twi-Hard. I think that Sam's mind was taking places he had been/were of relevance, and mashing them together in to form his dreamscape (much as we all do). It was a very cool touch.

oooh that's fascianting. I think there is much meta to explore in all the way things were constructed in Sam's subconscious, and the clothes thing must be deliberate.

Cannot wait to see more on that.

also yes we need a searchable database for clothes. get onto that will you ;D

Indeed. I'm really looking forward to rewatching the ep. (Waiting for it to download now).

And yeah, I should really get off my ass with this clothing thing, shouldn't I - it's not like I've done enough already ;P

I love that I have you to point out this awesomeness to me. Usually I only notice things like that after a fourth or fifth rewatch. With the exception of the shirt Sam has that I hate that kept showing up in Season 3, I think.

Haha, which shirt is that? You've probably told me before, but I've forgotten. A lot of people feel strongly about the Weird Red Flower (Maternity) Shirt - it showed up in S2 though.

I'm restraining myself from doing a full "clothing watch" until I get the DVDs, but it's hard to turn the habit off sometimes. ;)

I think that may be the one. Yep, that one.

No, I totally get watching the details. I just focus on the pop culture references more. lol We all have our specialties. ;D

I don't notice that. I'm not very observant about clothes, I'm afraid LOL

I only noticed that his subconscious thought that Dean looks like a male model. Hahahaha.

His subconscious also joked that he might be a hooker :P

I noticed soulless!Sam was wearing a green jacket, but I was actually thinking it was similar to future!Dean's green jacket. Maybe green has something to do with becoming hardened and killing easily. Future!Dean is actually similar to soulless!Sam-he sacrificed people and he killed people when he thought they were infected/doomed (like the spider guys soulless!Sam killed).

Well, you have a point too - though, I'm not sure if they were telling that story through the jackets. But Sera had an interview where she said that there was a parallel between soulless!Sam and how soul-destroying hunting can be/is.
