I would be so incredibly thrilled if Mark would watch Amazon's Good Omens adaptation! It's six episodes, about 50 minutes each I think? So, SO AWESOME and I would definitely be willing to pay to commission all six of them! Is anyone else interested in this?

Oh, I definitely would love for Mark to watch iZombie!! It's an incredible show and it's in its final season right now, so very soon it will be a closed canon ;)

Why it works for me is that it's basically Dean/Death Wish, which while very heartbreaking and devastating, is also very believable. :(

Dean is drawn to her because she represents, in her words in this episode, "the end of his struggle". Or more specifically, his END, period. :(

I agree that Kevin felt really underused here and it felt like a ploy - but I realized later in the episode, they needed to show us Kevin getting sent to Heaven and out of the veil, because that's what made it possible for the next prophet to get activated. :/ So, there's that.

I am so very intrigued to see some more interaction between Chuck and Lucifer. Just a couple short lines between them were so intriguing to me, and I'm so frustrated that's where the episode left us, because I NEED more!! :P lol

See, as crass and offensive as the line was, I kind of read that line of Dean's about how Donatello should recover differently. Because first he said, "You're gonna need a spa day." And then he amends it quickly, almost as if he's afraid of how that first line might be taken, and has to immediately cover it with something that sounds more macho and stereotypically hetero. Not necessarily telling us 'HEY LOOK DEAN LIKES GIRLS" but more reminding us that DEAN really wants everyone to be sure of that.

If that makes sense. :P

There was one new thing in the Dean/Amara scene that I noticed, and talk about a little in my own comment - she explains to him WHY he's drawn to her, and it's something I'd expected before, but hadn't had confirmed. She tells him that she represents the "end to his struggle". It's not just a misplaced romantic connection.

She is NOTHINGNESS, Chuck said. Empty. Void. Dark. The end.

The end of Dean's pain. The end of his constant ceaseless fight. Peace. Dean's drawn to her because on some level he WANTS it to be over. :(

Agreed. I elaborate in my own comment below, but I think it boils down to... Dean just wants his own pain to finally end. And that is devastating. :(

Mark, I agree with liliaeth's comment above, and I'm going to explain why...

In the Lizzie Borden episode near the beginning of this season, the show explored the variation in the effects Amara has on different people under different conditions. She took a soul from a man who was more or less happy with his life - he enjoyed his fandom, his obsessions, his LIFE... and he wanted that back. She also took a soul from a girl who was miserable and tormented - she'd been abused and mistreated most of her life, rejected in the near term by a boyfriend - and she felt BLISS.

But it wasn't really "bliss", was it? It was the ABSENCE OF PAIN. She liked what Amara did to her, because where before there had only been suffering, now there was emptiness - which to her felt like PEACE.

In the same episode Sam pointedly asked Dean how HE felt when he was alone with Amara, and Dean was kind of evasive about it. But I got the distinct impression that his reaction was more like the second victim in the episode.

It's the same as Dean saying that he enjoyed torturing souls in Hell. I have to question - did he REALLY "enjoy" it? Or did it just FEEL like pleasure because it was an end to the constant pain? :( And now, Dean feels the pull of that emptiness, that nothingness, the END to his struggle, as Amara stated specifically in this episode. There's an appeal to him about the idea of no longer existing - and therefore no longer SUFFERING.

And that's utterly heartbreaking. :(

So I completely LOVED this episode. <3

I loved the acting from all four lead actors, as well as the actress who played Delphine and the actor who played the soldier guarding Dean, I found his performance quietly touching.

1) Crowley - I was torn between satisfaction and sympathy. MAN does Crowley ever DESERVE to be humiliated and broken after all the years of crap he's put the Winchesters (and the world) through - but Lucifer is so unbelievably terrifying, I can't really WANT for ANYONE to be subjected to his torture, and Crowley seemed SO shaken, it's totally unnerving to see him like that. Crowley's almost never ruffled even in the slightest.

And he WAS shaken. Yeah, it's at least partially an act, he admitted to that. He's biding his time until he can make a play to take his throne back. But the fear he displayed here seemed very real. It wasn't the fake OTT fear he showed when dealing with Cain a couple seasons back. This was more genuine. He was very genuinely afraid of Lucifer, even if he's not entirely broken at this point. I think that for all he's got the power NOW, Lucifer is going to regret not simply killing Crowley and being done with it. :P

2) Cas - OMG how much did I LOVE that Cas overcame Lucifer to save Sam's life. Paralleling how Sam overcame Lucifer to save Dean's life in season 5, Cas couldn't just sit back and let Sam get killed, he had to fight back. The Sassy shipper in me ADORES that. But that Cas still feels this is the only way breaks my heart. He really sees himself as that expendable. Why wouldn't he? For most of their relationship with him, the Winchesters have treated him like a tool to be used. Not recently, but the effects of the past are still there. :/ Oh, and there's another angle to it, too - that once again Cas is willing to leave the world at risk from Lucifer, because only Lucifer could bring Dean back from the past. The world versus Dean? Every single time, Cas's choice is clear. <3 <I>"I can't believe I lost it!" - Yeah, that should have been a dead give away, Sammy. :/

3) Sam - I loved how protective Sam was of Dean in this episode, how determined he was to save him even if it cost him his life - how believable his traumatized reaction when he realized who he was dealing with. :( And I loved Sam being smart and saving the day, bringing back that angel banishing sigil we haven't seen in so long. <3

4) DEAN - OMG MY BABY :( :( :( - Jensen's portrayal was really excellent, he really got across what's at the heart of Dean's reaction at the end of this episode - he had to just be a spectator, a "witness", and that's not something Dean is used to. Dean Winchester finds his self-worth, his value, in saving people, in sacrificing himself for other people, or for the world. In this case (and in the case of Amara, a direct parallel) Dean is sidelined. He can only watch things play out, helpless to affect them. And that's KILLING him. :(

Really loved this episode, brilliant performances, most notably one Mr. MISHA COLLINS OMG you were AMAZING! <3 <3 <3
