Supernatural: The Usual Suspects

(Spoilery comment within re: this week's Lost)

I think my favorite thing in this whole ep was the revelation of how the Winchesters find motels: first one listed in the phone book -- and register under Jim Rockford when one of them needs to find the other! Jim Rockford! Of course he's a total role model for them. Never found an alias or a fake i.d. he couldn't use to scam his way in somewhere. Ahhh, Jim! Still in reruns. And now on DVD! Seriously, if you've never seen The Rockford Files, please do!

Wow, this one was very Samtastic, wasn't it? To make up for last week? I was digging him a lot. Perhaps because the awkward hair now looks less like it's just grown out and more like it's an actual style. (Why yes, I am all about the hair.)

The ghost itself was quite scary. The faxing ghost seemed very X-Files (in a good way.) Linda Blair, I liked. The cheesy Exorcist joke at the end, not. Of course the villain had to be the one prominent character who was neither a victim nor helping the boys: Peter. I think Jason Gedrick was one of those promising young lads several years ago (like Skeet Ulrich or something) who just never made it all that big.

Anyway, I liked the episode, especially how they played off the whole previous "Dean is dead" storyline. Because yeah, doing what they do, they'd just be the likeliest suspect most of the time. I love how Dean just told them the whole truth, knowing they'd never believe it.

I leave you with some caps.



Sam is crushed to find out he's the Scully.


Dean's attempt to casually slip in a supernatural line of questioning ... not going so smoothly this time around.


Sammy mentally bitch slaps Dean for raising the questionee's suspicions that they are not, in fact, insurance reps.


Oh Jared, if you only knew the dirty thoughts this inspires.


Dean: a virtuoso of the mouth


Oh crap.


"My name is Dean Winchester. I'm an Aquarius. I enjoy sunsets, long walks on the beach ..."


Even more dirty thoughts.


One very pissed-off ghost


Sawyer and now Dean on their knees, about to be executed, in the span of one week. Be still my heart! (Not that I thought either would really be shot but still...)

*has dirty thoughts whilst staring looking at caps*

I forgot about the desk... how could I forget that *sigh*

So much pop culture in this ep, I loved it. Nice to finally see the boys back to where I like them, on the road with the angst forgotten about for a short while, and the sarcasm and teasing back again.

Aww, I like the angst! But you can't have it nonstop, definitely. I think I'm looking forward to them getting back to chasing the demon. Not that I'm not enjoying the eps in the meantime, cuz yep with the sarcasm and teasing.

Awww, thanks! ;) It's the benefit of having to download it.

This one was good. None of them are knocking me out like those first few super-angsty ones, but it's always an enjoyable hour of TV. Because yeah, the pretty!

it was really a great one, I laughed and I jumped... just what I need in a SPN episode (or, sometimes I love when I tear up too)

Sammy-love sure sneaked up on me really fast... and that makes me happy!

Sam suddenly got hot. What happened? I think it's the hair. Seriously. That and him being so resourceful on his own.

This episode made me feel kind of lacking in a way. I think I missed/didn't understand about half the refrences AT ALL, but OH WELL PRETTY! (My family asking if I understood the pea soup line at the end, though, while I was focusing on the promo for next week, not so cute)

And RIGHT? Poor guys! They get no slack.

Though, really, the on the knees thing? Not so bad!

I love the camcorder cap :) He looks fricken ADORABLE and so smug.

Icons already! ;)

I need new SPN icons, stat.

And oh man, The Rockford Files thing is too perfect. I don't know if you'd enjoy it but I always got a kick out of it. True, he's not as hot as the boys but I loved me some Jim Rockford. Perhaps it's in reruns somewhere you live?

On the knees is always good! (And managing to stay alive, of course.)

Yeah,the chessy joke at the end wasn't all that good-but I kinda expected it,SPN is not afraid of being cheesy at times,they pulled it off:)

Jim Rockford!
2x07 was like 70's references episode,lol-I had to track down Jim Rockford reference,because the name was too familiar and my dad helped me with that one:)
But OMG,they've worked "Great Escape" into a plot line,wow-loved that they have their private language.

Hee, go check out the show, if you get a chance. You'll definitely see why he's a hero to the Winchesters. A private eye who's always on the wrong side of the law and always wisecracking. Not hot in the Winchester way at all but still quite lovable, I think.

arabella_hope has a theory that Dean stayed up late watching movies while Dad was out on hunts and I've taken that as canon. *nods*

I vaguely remember it,actually-but if I'll have a chance,I will:)

Yep,agree with that theory as well-and IMO,lots of times he stayed up late and waited for John.Like parents wait for their teenage kids to come home.Dean never had any childhood or was a normal teenager because of John...sad.

Ooooh, you've included my new fabvourite scene as screencap: Dean getting slammed into a wall by cops AND OBVIOUSLY LOVING IT ;) *is in happy place*

Seriously, if you've never seen The Rockford Files, please do!

Ehmm...guilty. I've never seen it. But the name rang a bell, at least ;)

Well, it's not exactly a new show! But if you can catch a rerun or something, maybe do that. ;) He's a fun character.

And yeah, Dean + wall. Oh yeah!

This ep was interesting in that, while filler, it totally laid down seeds for the rest of the season, the biggest being that they're exhuming the body of 'Dean' in St. Louis.
Which means Shapeshifter.
Which means....kidnapped!Dean.
Yum.
