Season 5 SN Finale  
Well, I watched my first live SN finale....


WHOA.

Man, this episode....I am still trying to process it all! :o But for the most part? I LOVED IT! :) <3333

I mean the Chuck voiceovers telling the story about the Impala, the convo in which Dean tells his brother he has to make his own decisions, Lucifer in Detriot (I will miss you Marksha, you were underused!), THE IMPALA AND MEMORIES OF DEAN SAVING THE DAY (that whole flashback sequence was just...gah! One of the best moments of the show ever), SAM BEATING THE DEVIL, SAMIFER (Jared nailed Lucifer just as well as in 5x04, just a creepy joy to watch!), the twist with Michael at the end (though Michael! :( :( ), CAS AND BOBBY COMING BACK AND NOT BEING DEAD (thank God! Literally! :p)....

Really, my main disappointment was that Jake Abel met my low expectations and failed to mimick Michael's mannerisms and keep him consistent the way the YED, Alistair, and Lucifer actors have done. :( Thank god for Matt Cohen at least...

And I am not so sure I like Cas going back to heaven like that....IDK, I hope he's around in season 6! And I actually kind of miss human!Cas already, I mean that adorkable exchange with Sam ("Oh, I'm supposed to lie?" awww), and the Molotov cocktail....but the important thing is he's alive, and Bobby too, thank goodness! Just changed my default so it's no longer the Prayer Circle icon, since that's no longer needed! ;) Now we need a "Baby Come Back" Cas one...since he needs to come back from heaven!

Oh and I was not happy with Sam draining all those people before meeting Lucifer, Lucifer could have done it if he needed to strengthen his vessel, I thought it was kind of unnecessary, and horrible--one woman in 4x22 was bad enough, but TWO?! :o And they totally brushed over the consequences as well, acted like it was nothing....

And what was that end?! :s Both the Chuck being God part (not sure how I feel about that! Especially since it doesn't jive with the amulet thing--Dean has worn the amulet before in his presence with no effect--and the Cas knowing every prophet name, including Chuck's), and Sam (or Lucifer? whoever) standing outside the house....though it was not as bad of a cliffhanger as I feared! Still, I REALLY hope this comes back in September! :(

But in all, a great episode, one that I think really speaks to the heart of the show, and which IMO would have made a better 100th episode (this is what I meant by "special," like having the stuff about the Impala, the flashbacks, etc), if only the numbering had worked out like it did for BTVS and "The Gift"!

What did you all think?  I saw a lot of hate on SPNP, but I don't really get that, especially the Lisa hate, she is an IDEA to Dean, okay, a dream!  It does make sense...

EDIT: I just realized that the Sam-fighting-off-Lucifer's-possession-by-remembering-love-in-flashback-sequence reminded me of--that equally touching scene in the HP OOTP movie, when Harry fights off Voldemort's possession in the same way! :D

Also I loved the True Blood season 3 promo, it looks epic! :)  And the promo for the next Vampire Academy book, I wasn't expecting that so I didn't realize what it was at first....makes me all the more excited for getting that next Tuesday! :D  Though I need to post my Book 4 fanmix here before then...

Also I need to finish reading Dead in the Family, which I picked up last Saturday, before this Saturday, since I'm meeting up with someone I will want to discuss the book with! ;)

And VD was amazing and crazy as well, though I am too tired to post about that right now. I am sad though that this is mostly likely the last time VD and SN will ever be paired up on Thursday nights together, it's pretty sweet, having your two favorite shows back to back on the same night like that! :( *sigh*

Meme is breaking my heart tonight, too. :( I haven't even been to SPNP yet. I shouldn't go, huh?

But yeah, I'm with you. Thought the Chuck thing didn't work real well (I keep coming back to him being afraid of Zachariah, and how did Raphael not know it was him?), but everything else, I loved.

And yes, what you said, this is why. I wasn't focused on whether it was cheesy, or whether the lighting was bad, or what Sam's hair looked like, or whether Dean's makeup looked good. I was focused on them - how did they feel, how were they making me feel, what did this have to be doing to them - and I didn't have room left for anything else. Because the emotion there, from both of them... Dean, dying, telling Sam it's okay, because he's there and he's not leaving, and Sam, fighting so damn hard, and telling Dean that it's okay because HE'S there and he's not letting Lucifer win, and... God.

I really don't understand why so many people seem so dead-set on just not seeing any of that.

Yeah, I'm sure Raphael would like to know why as well...why he would be guarding God, etc....:s I guess Chuck needed to act scared and such to keep up his assumed identity? IDK....

What is Meme? (Anon meme?) And yeah, if you liked the epp you probably shouldn't visit SPNP, there's a lot of negativity there as well for this epp! :( (And a buttload of comments period, they opened up a whole part 2 post b/c there were too many comments in the party post! :O)

IKR? It was so emotional, and so beautiful and poignant, with the flashbacks and the story of the Impala especially, OMG...I thought it was perfect, that Sam is able to fight by remembering his love and happy moments with Dean, reminds me of that scene in the fifth HP movie when Harry fights off Voldemort in the same way! Dean/Sam/Impala, that's the heart of the show, and that was at the heart of this episode, which I liked.

Well no, of course Dean's not going to be really happy with her, I don't think he could ever be *really* happy without Sam, but he can try--he's trying to follow Sam's last wishes....and Sam will no doubt be back soon, so it's not for long anyway!

The Chuck thing is interesting but I'm with you in that it seemed slightly out of sync with other stuff they've done with him in the past. I really hope Castiel comes back, like really really really hope. I feel like he changed so much from when he first met the Winchesters that he couldn't really be content back in heaven. Dean going to Lisa made perfect sense to me to. No way it would actually work when you have to move from his envisioned fantasy-life to real-life with her, but it's a nice thought.

I really did love the episode. The Impala voiceovers and the flashbacks and the ILU brother moments. Such perfection. It packed exactly the right emotional punch for me. I'm really curious to see what's up with Sam. It seemed odd for him to just be back, but if he's still got Lucifer inside of him then I'm not sure how next season could possibly less myth-arcy. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Random question, I've seen a lot of people worried about the show not being back in September...why? I thought it had been picked up for sure so when else would it be back? I've clearly fallen out of the fandom-loop, lol
sherrilina: Castiel (Supernatural)sherrilina on May 14th, 2010 08:06 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I don't even know what the deal was with the end, I'm just going to wait and see!

And lol yes, I am pretty desperate for Cas to come back as well! :( I just think he's too much a part of the show now, like Bobby...

And yes, it was picked up, but there are rumors (from Variety) that they might make it a mid-season replacement for a new show that would air after VD for the fall or something--which would mean that SPN would a) be half a season (FAIL!) and b) not come back until at least January...:(
More of a lark than a dove.: Free will's just an illusion.waitingtobelit on May 14th, 2010 09:16 am (UTC)
God, amen to the Jake Abel thing. He made a terrible Michael. It was really pathetic, in my opinion. Matt Cohen did such a better job, and I was really hoping for more from Michael. Honestly, I'd much rather have seen Dean as Michael. I felt almost no emotional connection to that scene because of Jake's poor performance. :/

I did like the twist with both of them falling into the cadge together though. Though again, Michael. :(

I think we'll see Cas in season 6. I don't think the writers would have kept him alive if he weren't going to be making an appearance or two. Well, that's what I keep telling myself, anyway.
sherrilina: Castiel (Supernatural)sherrilina on May 14th, 2010 08:08 pm (UTC)
Sam here! :( It is one my biggest regrets, that we didn't get to see Jensen play Michael even in like a nightmare or something! :(

And yes, Michael! :( (Lol, I never would have cared so much if not for TH!)

And well, appearance or two, that's the thing, I want him to be in more than just that! :( I will miss him too much....I mean, I love the seasons before he came (season 2 is my fave), but now that he has been introduced, I can't imagine just going back...

Gah! True Blood! Is it June yet? Why can't it be June yet? (^-^)

I'm *so* excited for this season, as it will cover my favourite book! (Don't ruin this for me Alan Ball >.>)

I haven't read Dead In The Family yet. I'm waiting until I can get my sticky little fingers on a 'paper' copy! ;)
sherrilina: Eric (True Blood)sherrilina on May 14th, 2010 07:07 pm (UTC)
Lol, you're going to have to wait a LONG time for that (I don't even think #9 is out in paperback yet!), I would go for a library or internet file if I were you! ;) The latter is how I read #9, because I was too cheap to buy it and it didn't go with the other books in my collection, but this time I just didn't care, and I had a gift card

And IDK I'm worried about Ball, with his raging Bill bias, I have a feeling that will change plenty about this season! :( But still, the promo looked amazing! :)
