Little Angel, Big Voice

Last night rocked.  I was actually surprised for a week coming off of a break or breaks recently they really came in strong with new material across the board.  Bravo Thursday night TV!

Anyway, what I really want to get down to is Supernatural.  How heartbreaking was Dean this week?  I LOVED that they had Papa not break so they had to go to Dean and Dean was weak.  That’s going to eventually kill him.  If we thought Dean made bad decisions before, he’s sure going to now.  Sammy, wow.  As if sleeping with the dead girl wasn’t enough… now he’s a quasi vampire.  Hop on the craze while it’s still hot!

I’m glad to see Anna back.  I didn’t think I would be, but the way it’s worked out we sort of have this crazy team that’s going to back up the brothers now.  I like her visually, though she reminds me of Felicia Day.

  1. Couldn’t agree more, I loved just about everything in the episode. Jensen really brought it as Dean gave in to torturing Alastair and then found out he was the one who started the whole apocalypse. Fantastic episode.

  2. I’ve been more hot and hotter (in a mostly non-sexual way) with Cas since he showed up, but this was really his big episode. There should be an ep with a Justice-style shot of Cas, Anna, Ruby, Bobby, Sam, and Dean walking in slow-mo in a line.

    Also, I’d been thinking demon blood was Sam’s secret for a few eps now, saying as it was what gave him his powers to begin with, drinking more should equal better powers.

  3. okay but ky and I talked about this. Isn’t sams blood stronger than Ruby’s would be anyway? Maybe he should be drinking his own blood.

  4. I doubt it. He’s human with some demon blood in him, she’s pure demon. Her blood is probably much weaker than that of Azazel’s though.

    Unless she’s much more powerful than she lets on. She did break herself out of a Devil’s Trap and survive whatever Lilith did to her at the end of season three.
