SPN: "What Is And What Should Never Be"  
I wibbled, I tell you. Wibbled!

Jensen Ackles never fails to make me shrivel up in almost-tears and wanting me to break through the screen and give him a gigantic hug. Seriously, he gives the greatest expressions from dead serious to hilarious right down to the emotional. That's why I love him and he's devilishly pretty and handsome and hot but that's a given, right ladies?

This episode focused on Dean's internal wish for having the perfect life, and about what life would've been like if Mary Winchester hadn't died that night in the fire from the Demon. If John Winchester never had to grieve and spend years tracking down the thing that killed her and neither Sam or Dean had to be trained in hunting the supernatural. That things were just....normal. It was something Dean wanted, but soon realized he couldn't have even if he really wished it were all true.

I really loved this episode. Bringing in the emotional and the hilarity and the greatest that is Jensen Ackles. But it was also depressing and heartbreaking, especially when he went back home and saw his mom. Awww, poor Dean. :( He loves and misses his mommy so much, that was a touching moment.

Hee, everyone thought Dean was drunk. That was hilarious.

Dude, Dean has a girlfriend and Sam is engaged the Jessica, and Mary Winchester is alive! But Papa Winchester is still dead, now that part was depressing. Dean's speech while visiting his grave was also sad.

Speaking of which, definitely a nice continuity with hunting versus having a normal life. If Dean and Sam hadn't gotten into hunting they never would've saved all those people. Really places things into prospective, by sacrificing the normal, happy life they could've had to save the lives of innocents and hunting down the supernatural. Not only that, but Dean and Sam in this "normal" world didn't get along, never had that brotherly connection. Dean was all sad about that, you could tell. He wanted to connect with Sam, be all "hey check it out, the happy life we never got to live is here! Jess is alive! Let's get drunk and party, dude!" But no. But thankfully, Sam wanted to be with Dean when he went to track down the demon!genie....because they're brothers. AWWW! Much love for the Winchesters, man.

"Bitch." "Why did you call be bitch?" "You're supposed to say jerk...." HEEE!!

Sam is such a yuppie in this "perfect" world. His expressions to Dean's happiness was so funny. And DEAN MOWED THE LAWN with such giddiness, and Mary's expression was hilarious too. It was like, "who are you and what have you done to my son?" kind of look, but she didn't seem to mind. Heh.

OMG! Reenactment of the pilot scene, SO FREAKING PERFECT! Everything was spoton. Loved it. That was just awesome.

DEAN AND TEARS!! My God, will someone give him a hug already? Awww.

The demon!genie is one freaky kind of genie. Loving the symbol tattoos, though. Still. Freaky.

LOVED this episode, of course it was Dean-centric so I was sold beforehand, but watching it was even better. Even if it was depressing and sad and made me want to cry and want to comfort and hug Dean. On the plus side: Dean was shirtless. Yep, totally made the episode for me. *is completely shallow*

Oh my gosh, I don't even know what to do with myself. That episode just killed me.

It confirmed the idea that Dean has secretly always wanted that normal life he pretends to look down on. And his love for Sam! So cute. He just genuinely wanted him to be happy and was so excited that he got to be with Jess. And... and... and the mowing the lawn. So adorable. Everything Dean did was amazing.

When he was in front of John's grave? I wanted to cry. Although I have to say that that part took me out of the show slightly. Because I was like, "if this is Dean's perfect world, John would NOT be dead. He is only "dead" because the show couldn't get JDM" which made me think of hot actors and yeah, I'm shallow too. But it couldn't be avoided, I guess.

I also loved that the newspaper articles was about actual cases we've seen them save in the show. And the "Bitch" "Jerk" exchange!

The whole episode was just amazing and so I'll stop taking up space on your journal now. :D

Exactly. I mean, I'm sure Dean doesn't want to dismiss hunting in the real world, but he definitely had wished things had gone differently. The "what if" playing over and over in his head, never having to deal with the loss and turmoil they had all gone through despite the lives they saved. That's his vulnerable spot, that sense of normalcy that he disguises by hating it. Because he knows if he ever got a glimpse of that life he wouldn't want to return to the cold reality of hunting again.

That speech at John's grave was depressing and heartbreaking, and it really brought out Dean's feelings about hunting and the life they lead in general. He holds the burden of the Winchester family, ever since childhood he had to look out for Sam, especially with this new burden and promise to his father about the Demon getting hold of Sam (*whimpers from the preview of the two-part finale*). In that "perfect" world he didn't have to worry about any of that....but he knew, despite loving the feeling of being normal, that in the actual reality Sam was still in danger. He had an obligation, even if he didn't like what the possible outcomes might be, and he chose that over the life he never had. It was sad, because Mary was there! His reaction to her was lovely and cute and made me wibbly. He wants his mommy back. :(

His love for Sam was also adorable, they may not get along at times but they do have things in common and they are still brothers who love each other. That's what I loved about this episode.

Okay, I'm rambling now, but this was an AWESOME episode. Gotta love Supernatural, dude. :D

Exactly. Just... exactly. To everything you said.

Also, I'm totally spoiler free so have no idea what you are whimpering about. (And, uh, please do NOT tell me. :D) But I didn't know there was going to be a two-part finale. If the last episode was 2x20, does that mean there is only the finale left in two parts? Or is there one more episode, and then like a two hour season finale of 2x22?

The finale is going to be in two parts, two separate episodes. Meaning after next week's we're going to be left with a cliffhanger until the second part is shown, and with most SPN fans it'll kill them. Seriously.

Oh, okay. Thanks for clearing that up!
