30 Days of Supernatural: Days Nine and Ten  

Day 9 - Your favorite Dean death scene

When he got shot in the very beginning of "Dark Side of the Moon", and it's simply because it's such a Dean Winchester way of going out. From when the other hunters shot and killed his brother, he goes from shock to pure anger within seconds and has this attitude of "if you're gonna kill him then kill me too you fucking bastards!" It's the way that his glare holds so much threatening promise that makes me go, of course Dean would go out like this.



Day 10 - Your favorite Sam/other death scene

I think my other favorite death scene has to be Ellen and Jo Harvelle's death. Not because I loved it, because I didn't. I was sad that they were both killed off after just bringing them back, but it's more about the way they handled their death scene. It was incredibly touching and the fact that they spent time focusing on the emotional impact of their deaths by drawing it out made me realize they were paying respect to these two fierce women. Jo making a self-sacrificing decision that matured her far greater than anyone ever imagine, even winning the respects from those didn't like her that much from before, right to having Ellen stay with her daughter and going out in pure HBIC-style.

It's devastating that they killed off the last two awesome females on the entire show as they did, but I really liked how it happened. It stayed true to their characters by letting them go out, with Ellen and Jo being together, their differences and quarrels pushed aside and forgotten, mother and daughter up until the very end.

R.I.P. Ellen and Joanna Beth Harvelle. ♥


Rest of the 30 Days of Supernatural Challenge.

I see that Jim Beaver is coming to LACon next month. It looks like he and Creation finally reached a civil agreement about him participating again, since he said he was displeased with Creation's operations and wasn't going to be attending one of their events again. I'm definitely going to be getting his autograph this time, for sure.

I totally agree with you on the Harvelle women death scenes. They were done so well. But I was still shocked that they died.

LACon... I wish I could go this year. I just randomly checked who was going and saw that Matt Cohen and Aldis Hodge were going to be there. :( I wish I had seen that sooner instead of making a plan for another trip with my friend. *sigh*

I wasn't so much shocked because this show has a track record for killing off all women characters anyway, but more disappointed because they brought them back just for that. :( I was hoping for more of an ensemble in helping fighting this war, or at least an extension somewhat of their characters as they did some in the second season.

Saturday has the biggest list of guests for the entire weekend, it seems as of right now. Misha, Aldis, Traci, Mark Sheppard, Jim Beaver. Hell yeah, I'm there. Which of course I'm only going for Saturday anyway but, with that list it'll be more than worthwhile I think. ;)

Yeah. The show really doesn't really like women that much. I'm trying to figure out why Lisa has survived so long. I agree with an ensemble for stopping the Apocalypse. I actually thought that one of them was going to come back and play Death since we didn't get to see him at the end of the episode.

That would be a good plan to just attend one day. Gosh, I wish I lived in California. That group of people... goodness. It will definitely be worthwhile.

It's really evident in the writing that the show just doesn't care for women at all, unfortunately. It's the biggest, most damaging flaw the show has. Though despite disliking Lisa a whole lot since they brought her back for whatever reason, I honestly hope they don't kill her off. I hope she goes her separate way with the little bit of dignity she has left, they can at least do that much.

I was planning on going to the San Francisco con since it's just several hours out from where I live, it was way to close to the scheduling for LACon this year. Also Misha wasn't there, so what's the point in going? ;p
dauntperplexitydauntperplexity on January 24th, 2011 12:56 am (UTC)
I know. As much as I don't like Lisa, I'd rather them just let her and Ben leave because they can't handle Dean's life. Or something that isn't killing her off.

Oh... what is the use of going to Convention if Misha isn't there? Like, seriously. I just want to see Matt Cohen.
Renée: Michael!John. BAMF.rogueslayer452 on January 24th, 2011 01:06 am (UTC)
I'm going to miss Matt unfortunately, since he's appearing on Friday. :( However knowing Matt, he'll probably stick around for the entire weekend. Because he loves us that much. :D might have to go stalking the hotel just to randomly bump into him, lol
dauntperplexitydauntperplexity on January 24th, 2011 01:14 am (UTC)
AWWW... Oh, Matt. I really want them to find a way to bring him back. He is adorable and he loves the fans so much. And I think that deep down inside, he is a Misha fanboy.

I would totally join you on your non-stalking adventure.

BTW. ICON WIN!
Renée: Misha. Sees whut u did thar.rogueslayer452 on January 24th, 2011 09:06 am (UTC)
I swear if he could hug every single fan and just hang out and chat with them at a convention, he totally would in a heartbeat. He's just a sweetheart, and I love that he gets starstruck by us as we are of him. It's adorable. ♥

Heheeee. XD

I would not object to that at all. I think that adorable is definitely the best way to describe him. Gah... I can't even...

:D

You know this show doesn't really seem to like women very much does it. It's really gross.

I agree with you on Ellen and Jo's death scene. I was like "WTF?!"

And Dean? Yeah, so him.
Renée: Cara. Warrior.rogueslayer452 on January 24th, 2011 09:02 am (UTC)
The mistreatment of women on Supernatural generally pisses me off. It can be a hit or miss sometimes, but most of the time it's a miss. It's pretty disgusting and insulting, really.

Yeah, and honestly, why bring the Harvelle women back just to kill them off? I understand that in war people die and it would have been better had they been featured more on the show to have that emotional impact, but the fact that they hadn't been seen since the second season makes no sense. :/

Did you hear that Dean (and Sam) are apparently gonna go after those hunters who killed them in Dark Side of the Moon? I dunno if it's just a rumour, but I do hope it's true. Sure, it's been a long time, but I do hope so.

Ellen and Jo's deaths were fantastically done. No matter how much I hated the fact that I had just started to like Jo and Ellen has always been one of my favourites, it was a very hunter-ish way to go, not to mention it was stopping and touching. Like you mentioned, pushing their differences and quarrels to the side and all, only remaining as a mother and a daughter, dying for the ~world.
One of my favourite scenes, no matter how sad it was. (and it was sad, damn!) also: HELLHOUNDS. :D :D I love hellhounds. They're so creepy.

Jim Beaver ♥
Renée: SPN. Crowley > Everyone.rogueslayer452 on January 24th, 2011 04:48 pm (UTC)
I heard that too, though I'm not entirely sure why they would after all this time. Like, what purpose would that serve? Unless they are rallying other hunters to go against the Winchesters, but as far as they know the Winchesters are dead since they left them dead but, idk. I just don't really see the point.

also: HELLHOUNDS. :D :D I love hellhounds. They're so creepy.

ITA. The Hellhounds are perhaps the bestest supernatural creatures we'll never see, and I prefer it that way. ;)
Revyallodole on January 24th, 2011 04:54 pm (UTC)
Lol yes. That's why I'm kinda bummed they didn't do that earlier and come on, do they even remember those guys anymore?

Exactly ♥!
Renée: Misha. Whut?rogueslayer452 on January 24th, 2011 05:06 pm (UTC)
And why would the Winchesters even care? Come on. I know that Dean had that murderous look in his eye because they shot Sammy and all, but you know, they have bigger fish to deal with than grudges like that.
Revyallodole on January 24th, 2011 05:30 pm (UTC)
Exactly. I don't even know.

That was a great Dean death scene- it really was such a Dean way to go out.

'It's devastating that they killed off the last two awesome females on the entire show as they did, but I really liked how it happened. It stayed true to their characters by letting them go out, with Ellen and Jo being together, their differences and quarrels pushed aside and forgotten, mother and daughter up until the very end.'
What a great way to put it. Although I could have done without the writers bringing them back to (seemingly) just kill them off, but than this show has always had problems with it's female characters to say the least.

'I'm definitely going to be getting his autograph this time, for sure.'
Good luck and hope you have fun.

Yeah, that's an unfortunate case with this show. I like to think that they handled Jo and Ellen's death more respectfully than any of the other female characters' death on the show, which isn't saying much considering how they treat women on this show anyway. But at least they got more focus than just "whoops they're dead" like they usually do.

Dean is so badass in that scene. He's just so matter of fact about the fact that he's coming back to life -- that must have freaked out those hunters massively. :D (Though perhaps my favorite Dean death is the piano in Mystery Spot. Can't stop laughing.)

Ellen and Jo didn't bother me at all when I watched it, but I find it really upsetting to think about now (I blame the Rabbit-Hearted Girl vid for this) and I can't stand to rewatch the episode. One of the surest ways to reduce me to a quivering heap is parent-child grief, and the way Ellen loses it when Jo dies...*wibbles* But really, if they had to go, I'm glad they at least went out fighting and the show made sure the audience really felt it.
