I am looking forward to the gifs... oh, there will be a wealth of gifs, and I will reblogging all of them no doubt over on my tumblr.

But, let's actually talk about the episode....

Being drawn and quartered is not a good way to die. It's horrified me ever since I first heard about it as a wee lass, and I would have been quite happy to have never seen it actually acted out. Thank goodness for standards and practices, I guess, we mainly just got the Foley and the blood splatter.

ALSO A DATE! I still haven't timelined last episode, but dude was killed on January 23rd...or, well, probably early morning January 24th - and that works well with what I have for 8x09 anyway, and I don't forsee 8x10 being that much of a problem when I do get to it. Anyway, I usually try not to timline while I watch, but I actually did yell out "A DATE!" when I saw the cellphone, and confused my friend for a moment. :P

ETA: WAIT! I just realized that if the dude died on January 23/24th, then that meant that the scene with Sam and Dean driving was probably the evening of January 24th which is... DEAN'S BIRTHDAY! Oh man, well, I guess that answers the question of whether or not they celebrate birthdays. :( At least Dean got to go LARPing on his Birthday weekend.

Then we get the obligatory "why aren't we focusing on the important plot?" conversation between the Winchesters. It was actually a good one, except that they decided the important plot was the tablet. Personally, I think the current important plot is actually Castiel. If I thought there was something weird and sinister going on with one of my friends, that would take priority over killing demons... but then, they probably have no idea how to help Cas either, I just think they should have mentioned that problem too.

Dean wants to take some time off, eat, see a film. Dean's all about asking people out on dates lately. Hahaha... I kid, but I'm actually kind of serious. I think what Dean is trying to say is that he and Sam need to reconnect and remember what they like about hanging out with each other so that they can move past the bitterness quicker. Sam's all about the job though, because Sam's all miserable about his life, and when Winchesters are miserable, they either become alcoholics or workaholics or both.

Garth calls them for a job...and I actually wonder if they got DJ to mumble stuff over a phone, because it really did sound like him on the other line...maybe they just used audio from his old episode. In any case, it was well done. Apparently DJ has the GPS turned on on all the Hunters and he tracks them - that's pretty clever, but I can only imagine that that means that other people might be able to track them too...other SINISTER people.

They head to the dead dude and meet an awesome Sheriff. Seriously, I forget the first line that I kind of giggled at, but he won me completely over with "These kids today and their tweeting and murder."

Also, Sam and Dean had broken out the long trench coats, which DAMN - YES PLEASE. I just want to crawl inside those things and... uh, sorry, I've gotten off track.

They go to question the guy that dead guy was texting, and they find out about the LARPing world. I love how uncomfortable Sam and Dean are with other people's emotions. I did like Dean's parting "hang in there buddy" or whatever the heck he said.

Then to the internet, where Dean starts realizing that medieval LARPing looks awesome! Jensen is so great with the way he plays scenes like this - where Dean starts smiling and then keeps trying to school his expression to indifferent seriousness like Sam's. Brilliant.

CHARLIE! I'm happy to have Charlie back. I really liked her last time. 

Then dude dies horribly. So gross. I have to say though, I really like that tree tattoo. It's pretty.

So, off to the Ren Faire.... well, not really a Ren Faire, since it's a LARPing event, but close enough. Here's a fun fact: In Victoria Vantoch's Threesome Handbook, she mentions that Ren Fairs are an excellent place to pick up, because Ren Fair attendants are "up for anything". Here's another fun fact: Jensen and Danneel go to a Ren Faire nearly every year. These two facts are not related, I swear. I DID happen to notice that Charlie was not having a hard time picking up at this LARPing event, so I only assume it runs on similar rules. ;)

I love the fact that after 8 years (10 in plot) someone FINALLY calls them on the fake badge, but it still doesn't blow their cover, because the dude just assumes that they're LARPers there on the wrong weekend. I also love how offended Sam gets when he points out everything that let him know it was fake. Part of my headcanon is that it's Sam who makes the fake credentials for them, though Dean picks the names. Speaking of, I'm going to have to look up what their fake names were in reference to this episode.

Then it's off to see the Queen! I absolutely love how they did the reveal with Charlie. I mean, first, I like the fact that we first see her kicking ass in a fake sword fight and then have her do the dramatic slow-mo reveal... but then I also love how they showed her perspective when revealing Sam and Dean to her. Just...LARPer LARPer LARPer WINCHESTERS LARPer...oh shit. The way she goes from confidence to terror was amazing. I have a thing for Outsider POV on BAMF/Dangerous Winchesters, and that was one done perfectly. 

And as Charlie explains, she's not afraid of them, she's afraid of what they bring with them. Charlie worrying that she was a monster magnet and then asking them if there was such a thing...I do wonder what they would have said, because I'm pretty sure that the Winchesters are the monster magnets in this universe. They can't escape.

Okay, is anyone going to mention the fact that Charlie gave Dean the QUEEN'S crown?! There was a LOT of stuff in this episode between Charlie and Dean that more than hinted at Dean having a non-heterosexual orientation, that's all I'm saying... and Dean didn't protest any of it. Personally, I've always believed Dean was bisexual, so I just loved it all. I'm even coming around on the whole Destiel thing this season, because I think the characters have finally changed/grown in such a way that I could actually believe it. Castiel's become less guarded and Dean's become less prejudice against non-humans.

I loved Dean correcting Charlie's battle formations, and Sam trying to keep them on task. I loved the whole conversation between the three of them really. Then Sam gets the call saying that the guy died from belladonna, and we get the gold of this conversation where both Charlie and Dean say "the pornstar?" and Sam just gets this look on his face like 'oh dear god there are two of them.' 

I did love that dynamic though, the fact that last episode Dean called Charlie "the little sister I never wanted" and it's true. Dean also treats her like a family member too. When Sam leaves for the tech-tent, and Charlie asks for the "full wiki" on what Dean and Sam have been doing for the past year (nearly two actually), Dean ACTUALLY TELLS HER. Not only that, but he tells her the details, including the ones where he kind of messed up - like the fake Amelia text. 

Meanwhile, of course, Dean is dressing up and loving it. Yay Dean. 

And then we get the other reference to the fact to Dean's non-heterosexuality when Charlie basically calls him on the fact that it sounds like he just broke up with someone too. That, of course, Dean denies. But yeah, as they walked out of that tent, I have expected Dean to start a conversation with his friend the lesbian about coming-out or something... I'm not even joking. 

Meanwhile, Sam's picking up in the tech-tent. I'm not sure what kind of girl is turned on by crime-scene photos...OR what kind of girl still thinks that Sam is cross-genre-LARPing when it's obvious that he's looking at REAL CRIME SCENE photos... but, hey, maybe she isn't the brightest tool in the shed, but at least she can appreciate a good looking guy enough to try to pick him up...even if he turns her down because he's a grumpy pants.

Charlie and Dean figure out it's the Orcs (possibly) and head out into the woods. Again, we have Charlie calling Dean her handmaiden and Dean just goes with it. I mean, yeah, he complains, but he doesn't insist that she choose something else. I kind of figured something weird would happen when Dean sent Charlie back alone. The ram's skull was creepy.

Dean and Sam meet up and realize that Charlie's missing. Oh... I forgot to mention earlier that I liked Dean trying to get Charlie to leave and be out of harms way, and basically arguing the "Sam part" of an argument that they often have because Sam was arguing Dean's usual part. I kind of love that about the Winchesters, how they always balance each other out even if they have to play each other's more common part. I could make a switch-hitting joke here, is what I'm saying... and how come my commentary this week is so sexual?

I loved the reference to Notting Hill. Maybe I shouldn't admit to recognizing it right away, but damn it, I did... and I cheered. The magic tent, I should say, was really cool. And then we get the reveal that the skull-dude is actually a beautiful lady! Suddenly things are looking up for Charlie! We get a good fairy! Only she is horribly trapped by an evil dude who is using her for evil purposes.

Meanwhile, Dean and Sam are in the woods trying to figure out who their magic user is... Dean gets sick of waiting and breaks out the gun. I love how exasperated Sam is with it. He's not freaking out, he's just like "really, Dean? Ugh." And the dude Dean's threatening is actually an attorney. I liked that addition. But he's not the magic user, he's another victim... so it's back to the drawing board...or in this case, a creepy tent down by the river...where they find Charlie getting it on with a fairy. Nicely done, Charlie.

I actually didn't see Bolty (or whatever his name was) as the bad guy coming. I kind of feel like I should have, in retrospect... and I almost did when Dean and Charlie ran into him in the woods, but when nothing happened immediately, I put it out of my mind. Anyway, I liked the ensuing battle and I like that Charlie is "the one that saves damsels in distress around here." She's the hero that gets the girl, which is a much better ending than her last Winchester adventure where she did her best but was eventually steamrolled by things way out of her league.

Which is why we get the more amicable split, with her telling the Winchesters that they CAN contact her again if they need her. It's super sweet. And then, even better, we get Sam realizing that he and Dean DO need to have fun...and what I love about this decision is that Sam's favourite thing to do is to make Dean happy, so he knows exactly what their first fun thing should be....

And then we get the most brilliant scene of the episode, with Dean giving the Braveheart speech (better than Mel Gibson, I'm sure) and Sam telling us that it's the only speech Dean knows. Brilliant. Personally, I've known a few braveheart fans in my life, and this is accurate. And of course, the CLOTHES, and SAM HAS A PONY TAIL! I LOVE IT! I squealed when I saw it. 

The added bit with the frisbee guy was just hilarious too - I love how the music un-swells and then re-swells. Brilliant, lovely, hilarious.

Next week I'm a little skeptical about, I have to admit. But I'm very happy with this week's episode.

FELICIA'S LIVEBLOG: I did watch the liveblog after watching the episode. Of course, Felicia does so much stuff, only part of it was about the actual show. I think my favourite comment from her about the show is how she thought Jensen looked like "a really hot Jughead." Jughead was my favourite when I was a kid, and I felt that he was the only one who had his priorities straight in life... anyway, yeah, loved that comment. Also, it was just nice to hear (yet again) how Jared always tries to make people laugh, and how Jensen is a super nice guy (and a smartass) and how much fun she had on set. I do hope that some of those scenes make it to the gag reel.

So, what were your favourite parts? What did I completely forget to talk about?

You've pretty much hit everything. Although I agree the priority should be Cas, he has disappeared and they have no leads to follow in order to figure out what is going on with him. I wish at SOME point, this gets paralleled with why Sam didn't look for Dean, but I doubt it will. It was a cute episode. Glad Dean got to do something that gave him some fun.

True, if they did parallel that, it would go a long way into getting Dean to understand where Sam was coming from. Ah well.

Definitely a fun episode. :)

But yes! dates! I noticed because it was TODAYS DATE. And of course dean's birthday the next day, which means that when he was suggesting to Sam that they have a day off, it was really a sad subtle plea to celebrate his birthday. Which Sam had obviously forgotten. Sam got a cake on his last birthday ;(

There were pop culture references to roll around in, and i am totally claiming the Wiki line as a shoutout, after Robbie Thompson tweeted lovely things about the SuperWiki today. Which is probably more likely than Charlie begin based on me ;D

ALSO Sam's hair in a ponytail! Dean in a wig! Bob Singer and the final credits!

Poor Dean, he tries to hint but his brother is too heartbroken to remember his birthday. :( At least he got a delayed birthday gift of LARPing.

But yes, my favourite part is everything too! I just timelined it properly just for an excuse to watch parts of it again :P It's nearly 4am, I will no doubt regret this tomorrow.

Sam wasn't wearing a wig, was he??? And Dean, stay precious. I just loved the whole episode. I do wonder if the writers realized it was Dean's birthday. It makes so much sense he wanted R & R. I see Dean as bisexual too, so this episode fed me that and I liked it. As for missing anything, you missed nothing.

Sam was not wearing a wig. Sam had 100% Sam hair in a pony tail...and it was good.

I don't think the writers realized it was Dean's birthday, honestly. That being said, we actually only saw the NIGHT of Dean's birthday, they may have gotten extra pie with dinner earlier. :) ... but it does make sense that he'd want some R&R.

Taggart and Rosewood are cops from Beverly Hills Cop. (The two dudes on the left.) A non-music reference!


Aside from the dorkiness levels being a little painful, I liked pretty much the whole thing! Dean being smart and sweet and sexy and a little bit bi (they really played that one up this ep, I thought! Woo!). I thought it was a really good Dean episode.

More than once while I was watching, I found myself thinking of Charlie as a hunter, and I had to remind myself that she's not a hunter... but really, she kind of is! I'm happy she didn't get killed or wounded, and I really hope she comes back again this season :) They may not be Bobby or Ellen or any of the other people who've been around over the years, but Garth and Charlie are pretty awesome secondary characters :) The boys need someone out there on their side!

Ah! A movie I haven't seen since the 90s! :P

Charlie is like Sheriff Mills now, I guess. Where she's aware of the Supernatural, can kick ass if she needs to, is willing to help the Winchesters, but just wants to stick with the life she knows and loves and not devote herself entirely to the cause.

As much as I love Bobby and Ellen, I kind of like the fact that the Winchesters are now the veterans. It's the whole heroes journey thing, I guess, where the father/teacher-figures have to die in order for the hero to come fully into his own. I kind of like the fact that Dean and Sam don't have a Bobby ex Machina anymore. They have Garth slowly taking his place, but the nature of Garth's character means that he'll never be as formidable a hunter as Bobby was.

So, yeah, I like the fact that the awesome secondary characters are no longer older wiser hunters, but instead young and relatively inexperienced.

Oooh, you brought up a few good points I didn’t consider.

Cas. Yeah, there probably should’ve been some mention of him, if only in passing, just for continuity’s sake. “Man, I hope Cas is all right …” “Hell if I know, Sammy. Guess he’ll ask if he needs our help.” And then move along.

I thought it was very sweet that Dean was trying to push Sam into having a little fun. (a.k.a. “Date Night”) Both of them are trying to appease the other: Sam, by putting both feet into hunting (as Dean has requested) and Dean, by recognizing that Sam needs a little ‘normal’ in his life to be complacent, if not happy. Sam just doesn’t do happy, poor guy. Grumpy pants, indeed.

The sheriff. Awesome incidental character. Brilliant casting, there.


I don’t think the writers realized it was Dean’s birthday either.

I have two tiny laments: one – we coulda used just a little more of Sam in-costume, and two -- I wish the writers would stop making Sam such the Straight Man to Dean’s smart-mouthed-comic-relief. Bring out Sam’s quirky side: his encyclopedic knowledge of the weird, his dry sense of humor, that kind of thing. They did a fantastic job with Dean and Charlie this time around, but I kept wanting a little more flavor from Sam’s dialogue.

Apart from that? Damned good episode! Enjoyed it bunches.

Yes, exactly. It wouldn't have taken much.

Sam just doesn’t do happy, poor guy. Grumpy pants, indeed.

You put this much better than I did. But yes, you're completely right. Sam's swinging the pendulum all the way to the otherside now that he's made his choice, and Dean's trying to make Sam happy as much as Sam is trying to make Dean happy.

The sheriff. Awesome incidental character. Brilliant casting, there.

Yes! He was brilliant!

Agreed on both points! Sometimes I think writers get too carried away writing for Dean, because Jensen has such great comedy chops, but Sam can be a sassypants and it'd be nice if we saw more of that.

Everything. Honestly, Everything. lol I love that you brought up that Castiel is the main plot right now. I think you're on the right track. I think the Angels are but the distraction is Crowley. I mean obviously you're naturally gonna pay attention to the bad guy sat in front of you. He's bad! He's got a history of doing bad things. Obviously he doesn't want hell shut, it's bad for business. But what if he's also trying to find some leverage to get around w/e the angels are doing? I totally think that Crowley would be cool with controlling the demons and not running amuck as long as he got to keep running his business. And his business at the base of things is to keep the balance. No good without evil, so he walks that fine line with the crossroad deals. I think we can all agree that some of the people that made them aren't a big loss because they were just trying to cheat the system. There's still the good, desperate people that get sucked in but it's part of the process.

All that is to say that they've flashed bits and pieces of the Angel situation at us. A lot of people will move past it and only remember it when it becomes important. Obviously it's gonna be a slow reveal and it needs to be or we already start thinking of where we want it to go and become dissatisfied with how they actually go somewhere with it. Plus the layering on the show is good. I think without it, the story isn't as interesting. Yeah you want to know everything right now but if you did, what's the point of the story? The journey is the story.

Okay I got all thinky and conspiracy theory on you. Sorry about that. Thanks for the safe place to chat!

That's a very good theory! I think you may have called it. There's usually always a sleeper plot that rises up in the last few minutes and takes them by surprise - and I think it may very well be Naomi.

This episode = LOVE. SO MUCH LOVE.

(I'm pretty sure that my mom thought I was insane with my comments as I watched the episode, as she was in the same room as me. Also, I kept shouting down the stairs at my lesbian sister about how proud she'd be of this episode. To quote my sister: "YES! I love it when lesbians save the day!" XD)


But damn. You're making me retroactively sad that they spend Dean's birthday presumably driving and then working and stuff. :( Apart from that, though, I just wanted to cuddle him throughout this episode. GODDAMN IT, PLEASE BE CUTE FOREVER, EVEN THOUGH IT'LL JUST WORK TOWARDS SHATTERING MY HEART EVEN MORE IN THE END. And I love the Charlie/Dean bonding forever, and A+++++++++ to Charlie forever for calling certain shit out. And for voicing my opinions, like DEAN, I'M SORRY, BUT YOU REALLY DO SOUND LIKE YOU JUST DUMPED YOUR BOYFRIEND. WHICH YOU BASICALLY DID. AND WHILE WE ARE ON THE SUBJECT, IT'S NICE OF YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE SAM'S PAIN, BUT GODDAMNIT, _YOU ARE SUFFERING AND JUST HAD TO GIVE SOMEONE UP TOO_ AND SAM ISN'T THE ONLY ONE WHOSE PAIN IS IMPORTANT, YOU SELF-SACRIFICING ASSHOLE. *huffs*

Anyway, yes, total agreement on the whole Dean is bisexual thing.

As for the villain this time around...there was an up-close shot of his face, I think, right after they meet him and go off to see Charlie that had me suspicious, but when he led the way to the tent just confirmed my belief, so I wasn't really surprised.

Also, when Dean just knocked him the fuck out after Charlie stabbed the book? THAT'S MY BABY. YOU BE A BAMF.

And I loooooooooove Outsider POV on BAMF!Winchesters as well.

Everything was just love. lovelovelovelovelove

In fairness, it's evening on Dean's birthday when we first see them, so they might have partied it up during the day! We don't know! But judging from Dean's desire to do something fun, probably not. :( At the very least, I'm hoping Dean got some pie with dinner.

I think Charlie/Dean is my new brOTP (as the kids say). They just had such a great friendship in this episode, and I always think that Dean needs more friends, so that's awesome... of course, that being said, Sam doesn't have any friends that aren't Dean's friend first...so, poor Sammy.

I've been thinking about how it was that Dean's bisexuality just seemed so canon this episode... and I think it's in large part to the way Charlie interacted with him, because she never assumed. She only asked one personal question about romance "did you just break up with someone too" and it was neutral wording. Anyway, yeah, I just loved it - I thought the episode was written in such a way where the sexual orientations of the characters truly weren't what defined them at all. It was just brilliant.

Yeah, in retrospect, I really can't believe that I didn't realize that Bolty/Jerry was the bad guy - I'm blaming being distracted by so much awesome for that one. :P

I also LOVE the fact that Charlie was the hero of the piece through and through - and I love the fact that Dean told her that from the very beginning, that for all we saw Charlie's POV of BAMF!Winchesters, we also saw Dean's (and a little bit of Sam's) POV on Awesome!Charlie.

I worked for a RenFaire for nearly 20 years (and was Queen for 9 of them) and I can tell you that yeah, a RenFaire is the place to get lucky. Attendees, crafters, drink stall employees, actors, staff -- EVERYONE is looking for a little action. The campgrounds at night were rockin', I assure you.

I loved the episode, and though I've been done with the Faire for many a year, I sorta kinda wanted to go there, put on a costume again and kick ass as a wench (or queen). They got it right, I have to say, with minimal -- if any -- eye rolling at the phenomenon of LARPing.

I've never been to a RenFaire, but my brother has been to a couple with his friends - he seems to have a good time. I wasn't sure if this was really a RenFaire or more just straight LARPing, since I often think of RenFaires as a mix of LARPers and people who are just there to play the games and watch the LARPers. But like I said, I've not actually ever been to one.

Well, when I worked there I'd never even heard the term "LARP." But I walked around for 7 hours completely in character unless I was backstage, and at night people had a tendency to forget you were regular people. I had more than one person say "sit here, your Highness," and offer me a rock to sit on at a campfire. When I played a wench everyone assumed I was slutty. And I kinda was.

That's awesome! It sounds like a lot of fun.

It's amazing how much costumes affect how people treat you. I noticed this even with the very limited "background performer" work I've done in Vancouver. One friend of mine did a shoot where there was on actor dressed as a priest, and well, he wasn't in character between takes, of course, and apparently he was kind of a bit of a sleaze (I'm sure it didn't help that my friend was dressed as a whore)...and she said it was really a weird mind-trip to have this dude dressed as a priest being sleazy and crude between takes. And I did a shoot once where there was a whole bunch of extras dressed as military, and I kept getting intimidated by them even though they were just actors in costumes and were probably perfectly nice.

This was such an awesome episode, I'm still squealing. More than anything else, it's great to see the boys actually having fun - and that reference Dean makes to how they used to go and take a night off and see a movie and all that, just because it might be the first time they've outright said that they do go and hang out like that sometimes.

That Dean actually tells Charlie everything that's been going on... felt sort of like the writers creating an opportunity to mention the Amelia text because they wanted Dean to reflect on it a bit - but now that they have done it I'll take it. Why exactly Dean would trust Charlie this much at this point is a bit muddy, but it's good for him that he does.

From: [identity profile] hells-half-acre.livejournal.com
It's true, they don't actually have the necessary history for Dean to realistically feel comfortable talking to Charlie about his problems - but I actually still do believe that scene, because we don't hear how much he told her or what words he used. He may have just been filling her in on how they took down Roman, which then made him have to explain that he had gotten zapped to Purgatory, which then probably made him mention that Sam shacked up with some girl...which then probably made him mention "he just broke up with her. He's pissed at me right now because blah blah blah." So, it's sort of believable that way, you know?

Anyway, yeah, I love the fact that they mention that they do have "down time" that we don't get to see, where they're just watching movies or going to concerts or whatever... it's nice to be reminded. :)

We can pretend they do... but you're right, there are ways to fill that gap without it being an intentional soul-baring on Dean's part. And if I remember right he had his back to Charlie at the time, which he tends to do if he's uncomfortable with a conversation.

Sam's jacket at the end of 8x11 is made by Lucky Brand. Unfortunately, I can't help you on Dean's.

Thank you.
