Supernatural: Croatoan

Back on dial-up. *sigh* Just glad that my cable didn't crap out last night so I could watch the ep this morning on that quaint, antiquated device, the television! (Although the TiVo listing called the ep "Croatian." LOL.)



Chills, I tell you. Just the significance of what that one word "Croatoan" means -- I have chills even as I type this! Very, very powerful episode, from the first slo-mo vision to the last moment there. Excellent set-up and then Dean being so damn cold and ready to kill. And ready to die. :-(

GAH! Just when you think you've seen the maximum strength Winchester angst, they raise the bar.

Can I also say how much I liked the Master Sergeant character? Sorry to see him go. Think he would have made a better Gordon, actually. One of the few times I laughed all episode was when he gets into the Impala, gun drawn, while Dean is covering him with his gun and Dean says, "Well, this is going to be a relaxing drive." (Or words to that effect.)

I'd skimmed my flist and saw that it was a cliffhanger so there was less, "OMG, no!" from me, probably. I actually thought they might leave it with Sam infected and at Dean's throat or something, so as cliffhangers to, not that traumatic. And as far as the virus disappearing from the blood samples ... until the possessed guy (Dwayne?) said Sam was immune, it seemed like maybe Sam wasn't after all. Not that there's any coming back from being possessed, most of the time. And also, if anyone ever is alone with me a car in the middle of somewhere, and says they want to make a call and doesn't pull out a phone? I'm throwing them out of the car!

Can I say again ... AUGH! Dean! *clutches heart, wipes away tears*

Also, zelda_zee has written a lovely, angsty ficlet set after this episode (her first SPN fic!) HERE 'tis.

I had a feeling that Kripke was going to fuck me over with a cliffhanger, based mostly upon keeping an eye on the clock and knowing that he is a cruel god. It's so sad that he's now reached that special Joss level for me.

Can I say again ... AUGH! Dean! *clutches heart, wipes away tears*

My urge to throw my arms around him and cuddle him close actually outweighed my SEX NOW urge where he's concerned, pretty much for the first time ever.

I seriously wanted him and Dewayne to wander around becoming hunters themselves, before Dewayne turned out to be Meg 2.0 (though the actor is much more charismatic and all around better than the first version was).

Oh yes, if there was any doubt that SPN is the new Buffy/Angel, that doubt has been removed.

Awww, Dean! Gah, I love those characters with that rock-hard exterior and then when it cracks and you see how broken they are underneath ... ANGST! (I have GOT to get back to that SPN/Lost crossover one of these days.)

I think they have different (better!) people casting the love interests from all the other guest stars on the show, heh.

Hey, thanks! That's sweet of you. I am oddly pleased w/that little 130 word thingy. I think it was just the fun of writing something different - plus giving in to the angst. :)

I seem to be into SPN in the same way I'm into Lost, i.e. for the relationships between characters rather than the storyline. I thought the ep was just fine, on a par w/other SPN eps I've seen, until Sam got infected and Dean got protective and then hopeless and loving in that hardass way of his and... wow. Then I just fucking loved it so much.

Happy to rec! :-)

And guh, yes, when the Winchester angst kicks in, I'm THERE. I love the snark but the angst is what keeps me coming back. Protective, fatalistic Dean just reels me in so hard.

I agree and disagree with the Sarge guy. I LOVED him, and maybe they had called him in after trying for Gordon? But he was intense and perfect and kinda clean...I dunno. I like that Gordon seemed sketchy from the get go.

The Winchester angst has NO LIMITS, it's insane!

I just hope they tell us the 'secret' soon and not in the finale or something. That would make me cry.

Ooh, that would be cruel, to keep the secret that long! I think they have to tell us. It's not like Damon & Carlton are writing THIS show, LOL. ;)

Is it January yet? (Er, it is coming back in January, right? I'm having trouble keeping track of what's coming back when!)

Tee hee. I mean to say "middle of NOWHERE." LOL. Although I guess everywhere is somewhere.

I've seen the cliffhanger coming,I did-but I thought we get two episodes in December!And now we have a month till next episode!Grrrrrrrr...Evil hiatuses!

That Duane guy and the call he've made actually made me go all "wow cool!",I love how S2 is completely different from S1 but ties up so well with previous plotlines.Demon is not giving up,he wants Sammy,and I just know Sam is at least part Demon/supernatural something!
*needs to see next eps. NOW*

I like staying pretty unspoiled on SPN, like you I DL and watch eps so I don't get previews. And I don't know what's coming up when, so I was kind of upset that we're waiting for more until December too. But SUCH a great ep. I think it offsets any pouting!

But yeah, if I had the rest of the season in front of me, I'd watch 'em all back to back!
I suspect Sammy is either part demon or there's some kind of very disturbing prophecy about him.
