OH MY LAWD, LOL.  
"The French Mistake"

SAM AND DEAN ARE TRANSPORTED TO AN ALTERNATE REALITY — Raphael (guest star Lanette Ware) launches an attack on Castiel (Misha Collins) and his allies, sending a particularly frightening angelic hitman (guest star Carlos Sanz) after Balthazar (guest star Sebastian Roche), Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles)... In an effort to protect the brothers, Balthazar sends them to an alternate universe where they are the stars of a TV show called "Supernatural" and they are actors named "Jensen Ackles" and "Jared Padalecki." The brothers are confused when Castiel appears to be a tweet-happy actor named Misha Collins and Sam is married to Ruby (Genevieve Cortese). Charles Beeson directed the episode written by Ben Edlund.


BEN EDLUND WROTE THE EPISODE!!!! \O/\O/\O/



NO NEED FOR WORRYING IF THINGS ARE GONNA BE RUINED AND SCREWED OVER BECAUSE BEN EDLUND WROTE THIS EPISODE, SO ALL WILL BE PERFECTLY FUCKING AWESOME. Never mind that this is precisely the kind of setup we've kind of speculated when the meta-episode was first talked about? With Balthazar hiding the Winchesters from this particular angelic hitman after them. Which is, of course, typical Edlund-style, mixing the wacky crazy with interesting plotty things like the angel civil war and Raphael targeting Castiel and all of that. IT IS JUST SO PERFECT READING THIS DESCRIPTION BECAUSE IT HAS EVERYTHING I COULD HAVE HOPED FOR AND LO AND BEHOLD, EDLUND GIVES IT TO US. <3 <3 <3 <3

ALSO?

...the brothers are confused when Castiel appears to be a tweet-happy actor named Misha Collins...

LOLING FOREVER BECAUSE I TOTES WANNA SEE THIS, OMGOMGOMGOMG. \O/

I AM SUPER EXCITED NOW FOR THIS EPISODE. NO LONGER BITING NAILS IN POTENTIAL SECOND-EMBARRASSMENT. I WANT THIS EPISODE NOW BECAUSE I AM SO TOTALLY GOING TO BE SQUEEING AND LAUGHING AND ANXIOUS TO SEE WHERE THIS HEADS BECAUSE YAY! BALANCING OUT THE CRACK WITH THE DRAMA AND MYSTERY. \O/


While the show returns tonight I don't think I'll be watching, though I have legitimate reasons for it. The main reason is because I'll be asleep when it comes on, since my sleeping schedule finally has returned back to normal hours I'm trying to stay that way, especially with this new job opportunity I have that requires a lot of energy on my part. I have to get solid hours of sleep otherwise I'll be too exhausted the next day, and I don't want to go back to my unusual sleeping patterns which leads me not being myself and I've desperately want to avoid that. The other reason is because...I simply don't want to. I'm not enthusiastic about the show as I once had been so, missing tonight's episode isn't a huge loss on my part.

Thankfully I have you all who see the episode before I do, so I'll be reading reaction posts before I turn in for the night. ;)

BESIDES IF THIS EPISODE DOES NOT INCLUDE ACTUAL MOTHERFUCKING DRAGONS WITH HUGEASS WINGS THAT SPIT OUT FIRE A LA HARRY POTTER STYLE I WILL BE SUPER ANNOYED AND CALL FOUL. JUST SAYING.

When I saw that Ben wrote the episode I flipped out! This episode is going to be awesome! :D

I just want to see what Misha says about Jared and Jensen to Dean and Sam. And if they kill him? Hmmm...
Renée: Misha Collins. IDEK.rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 09:36 pm (UTC)
THERE'S NO EPISODE LIKE A BEN EDLUND EPISODE. :D

I JUST WANNA SEE THEIR EXPRESSIONS AT THE "MISHA"!CASTIEL BECAUSE, LOL I CAN ALREADY SEE THE PERPLEXED LOOK ON THEIR FACES BECAUSE HOLY SHIT, THAT'S GONNA BE AMAZING.
dauntperplexitydauntperplexity on February 4th, 2011 09:52 pm (UTC)
I was definitely hoping that Ben was going to write it. He knows how to write Castiel correctly. And I want to see what he does to Misha. Oh my gosh it will be awesome.

I KNOW!!! I'm already in love with this episode. I am so excited. The countdown begins!!! :D
Renée: Castiel. I'm almost out of minutes!rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 11:02 pm (UTC)
Edlund is the only writer I trust on this show to write Castiel properly anymore, which is kind of a sad thing to admit but there ya go. Anyway, it makes me super duper happy that not only is he going to be writing for Castiel but also MISHA as well! Just the entire thing is kind of a mindtrip, in a way. XD

I JUST WANNA SEE THE BIZARRENESS OF THE WHOLE SITUATION FOR THE WINCHESTERS AND HOW THEY REACT TO BEING CALLED JARED AND JENSEN. XD XD XD OH MAN THIS IS GONNA BE ONE HELL OF A RIDE!
dauntperplexitydauntperplexity on February 5th, 2011 12:07 am (UTC)
I really want to see what he does to Misha. Like, is Misha going to be the damsel in distress this episode? I'm just waiting for my mind to get totally warped while I watch the episode. ;D

IT IS!!! I just want to hear Dean call Jensen and Jared douches. Then all will be well!!!

Wait, there aren't any dragons? I thought there was going to be a dragon.

I think a lot of people are worrying that they're going to use interesting camera angles and fire effects to avoid spending money on a dragon. I want a dragon :(

LOL SORRY BB. I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF. WHENEVER I THINK OF DRAGONS I THINK OF THIS. XD BUT I HIGHLY DOUBT SHOW WILL GIVE US THIS BECAUSE THEY ARE SUCH CHEAPSKATES. :(

I HAVE A FEELING IT'S GONNA BE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC JUST BY THE DESCRIPTION ALONE. I ALREADY KNEW THAT IT WAS A META WITH THEM BEING THE "ACTORS" BUT, THIS SEEMS TO SOUND INCREDIBLY EPIC. \O/

PLUS IT'S WRITTEN BY THE ONLY WRITER I LOVE ON THIS SHOW. SCORE!
Kevin Jonesmulder200 on February 4th, 2011 08:17 pm (UTC)
OMG! Apparently, Ralphael's new vessel is a black woman? This could either be good or bad depending on the actress.

And yay for Ben and good writing. I doubt I'll watch but I look forward to reviews.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. OTP.rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 09:42 pm (UTC)
Oh seriously? I didn't even look up the name of who was playing Raphael this time. That is quite interesting. I'm not entirely sure how that's gonna work actress-wise, since this show is definitely a hit-or-miss with their actresses for sure, however it's Raphael. I'm betting they're going be hardcore either way with their spite. At least I'm hoping so. *crosses fingers*

YAY FOR BEN EDLUND! \O/
Revyallodole on February 4th, 2011 08:20 pm (UTC)
Thank the Lord (or whoever's listening) that it's Ben Edlund. I seriously don't trust anyone else except him to deliver *____* ♥

IDK what to wait about this episode, but I can only hope for a hug. Or two. Or three. or... yeah.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Profound bond.rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 09:46 pm (UTC)
FOR REAL THOUGH NOW. I WAS PRAYING THAT IT WOULD BE EDLUND AND NOW IT'S CONFIRMED! I AM SMILING BECAUSE ONLY HE CAN PULL SOMETHING LIKE THIS OFF WITH AWESOME RESULTS. :D

I've been hearing wariness from others that this new episode will have Dean and Castiel at ends with each other while Sam and Castiel will be getting closer, by means of a possibly awkward hug or something. I'm fearing Sera Gamble wants that instead of a Dean/Castiel hug because she doesn't favor Dean, but I honestly don't think that any Sam and Castiel interaction will ever be as profound or amazingly awesome as Dean/Castiel. idk :/
hapax legomenon: Castiel doesn't know how he feels about actourdreams on February 4th, 2011 08:33 pm (UTC)
Okay, Edlund is good!

However, the description sort of stepped on my embarrassment squick button and kept its foot there for a while. I think I might skip this one and just enjoy watching the fallout. :/
Renée: MISHA COLLINS BITCHES!rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 11:00 pm (UTC)
EDLUND IS ALWAYS GOOD. :D

Awwww, well. I figured there's still some people wary about the second-hand embarrassment, however reading this description kind of eases that a bit because it's all part of an elaborate plan on saving the Winchesters from evil angels. Plus Balthazar, and Misha PLAYING HIMSELF! \O/ I CANNOT WAIT!
the infraggable crunkblualbino on February 4th, 2011 08:40 pm (UTC)
DOES THIS POST HAVE WORDS OTHER THAN "Castiel appears to be a tweet-happy actor named Misha Collins" BECAUSE I CAN'T READ THEM.

*DANCES*
Renée: MISHA COLLINS BITCHES!rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 10:57 pm (UTC)
I HOPE THERE'S MENTION OF US MINIONS. BECAUSE I SWEAR THAT IS GONNA BE LOLARIOUS FOR SURE. XD
Gaby: LMAOsquaringkarma on February 4th, 2011 08:40 pm (UTC)
AHAHAHA. I am so behind on season 6, but this episode sounds so LOLARIOUS.
Renée: Castiel. Cute and sneaky.rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 10:57 pm (UTC)
It's a good thing you're behind on the sixth season. Nothing really happened thus far anyway, so I think you're good with starting from here because really we kinda wanna forget everything else that happened in the first half, lol.

THIS EPISODE IS GONNA BE FANTASTIC. I CAN JUST FEEL IT. :D
philstar22: Supernatural: Cas angel thingphilstar22 on February 4th, 2011 08:47 pm (UTC)
That is going to be amazing, though given that this week has dragons and some awesome Dean/Cas interactions I'm pretty stoked for this week too.

I really should sleep as I'm behind on sleep and need to get up tomorrow morning. But I guess I'll just take a nap. I need to watch this episode live.
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 11:05 pm (UTC)
I think the only Dean/Castiel interaction is going to be the one we saw in the preview clip. Because Castiel is only in a small bit in tonight's episode from what I've read. But anyway, I'll read up on how the episode is. Because I still cannot get over the lulz of the "dragons kidnapping virgins" bit. XD
Tinka: Bal/Casgwaevalarin on February 4th, 2011 08:59 pm (UTC)
That was pretty much my raction when I read the episode description, just with a little bit more "OMG! Balthazar!" thrown in. ;)
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 09:49 pm (UTC)
It makes me wonder, is Balthazar on their side now? Or we'll be seeing how that happens between now and when the episode airs? Because from where I'm standing Balthazar is pretty much on his own side, but something might occur that makes him rethink his position. Hmmmm, interesting.....
Tinka: Bal/Casgwaevalarin on February 5th, 2011 07:17 am (UTC)
I'm not sure if he's on their side excatly, or if he's just doing it for Cas. But either way, there has to be some explanation, because last time we saw him, he still called himself the angel who wants to kill them.
kaiyote: PKMN ▪ jigglypuffkaiyote on February 4th, 2011 10:52 pm (UTC)
OMG, MY SPECULATION ABOUT THE EP WAS RIGHT AND THERE'S BALTHAZAR AND RAPHAEL SENDS AN ASSASSIN AFTER PEOPLE IMPORTANT TO CAS (I'M MOST \o/ OVER BALTHAZAR BEING ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE BECAUSE DEAN AND SAM ARE OBVIOUS) AND EDLUND WROTE THE EP AND HE'S THE ONE WRITING MISHA AND A;KLSDJFLK;AJSFLKJSLDKJFLKSJDFAS

LOL, I REALLY DON'T WANT TO WATCH TONIGHT'S EP, BUT MY FRIEND IS COMING OVER TO WATCH IT. SO I KINDA HAVE TO. XD
Renée: Misha. !!!!!rogueslayer452 on February 4th, 2011 11:13 pm (UTC)
SERIOUSLY, YOU'RE LIKE PSYCHIC OR SOMETHING BB. WE NEED MORE PREDICTION CIRCLES BECAUSE IT SEEMS THE MORE WE DISCUSS ABOUT THINGS THE MORE LIKELY IT'LL COME TRUE. LIKE THIS ONE.

AND I AM SOOOOOO SUPER HAPPY THAT EDLUND WROTE THIS EPISODE. \O/\O/\O/ AND THERE'S ANGEL ASSASSINS! CASTIEL AND BALTHAZAR! MISHA PLAYING HIMSELF! WHEEEEEEEEE!

I'LL BE READING WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING, THOUGH I'LL HAVE TO MAKE MY OWN REACTION TO THE REACTIONS TOMORROW, LOL!
kaiyotekaiyote on February 5th, 2011 12:46 am (UTC)
I AM THE PROPHET KAI! ...NOW I PROPHESIZE DEAN AND CAS HUGGING. YEAH, YEAH. THEY HUG. SO GET ON THAT, SHOW.

ME TOO! OMG, THIS EP SOUNDS SO FANTASTIC ALREADY. CAN WE JUST SKIP 6X12, 6X13, AND 6X14 AND JUST GO STRAIGHT TO 6X15?!? PLEASE!

LOL, YEAH. I'M HOPING MY FRIEND SHOWS UP A LITTLE LATE, SO THAT WE'LL MISS THE EP THE FIRST TIME IT AIRS, AND THEN WE'LL HAVE TO WATCH IT LATER... AFTER I HAVE READ OTHER PEOPLES REACTION TO THE EP. BWAH.

...

Okay, can I just say really fast though that I really don't see how Balthazar is like stealing/copying from Gabriel re: the whole AU thing? Like. How? Gabriel technically isn't the first angel to create an AU. I mean, Zachariah pretty much did this with the green room, the 5x04 future, and if you want to count it, 4x17. The only similar aspect to it is the whole "tv" one. But even that is stretching it, imo. :\

Ugh, I'm just tired of people comparing Balthazar to Gabriel. THEY'RE THEIR OWN CHARACTERS. FUUUUUU. :|
Renée: Castiel/Lucifer. Angels of the Lord.rogueslayer452 on February 5th, 2011 01:23 am (UTC)
DEAN AND CASTIEL DEFINITELY NEED TO FUCKING HUG ALREADY. IT'S FUCKING TIME. JUST DO IT. DO IT! WE PROPHESIZE SO FUCKING HARD FOR THIS, DAMMIT.

And I totally agree regarding the Balthazar versus Gabriel debate going on. Like, okay, at first was was kind of like "eh" regarding that that's how Balthazar chooses to save and protect them because it does seem very Gabriel-ish and it made us get our hopes up based on the promise about them bringing Gabriel back into the show somehow. HOWEVER, they are totally two different characters. Gabriel left Heaven because he couldn't handle the family feud and wanted to protect himself by leaving until it was all over. Balthazar left Heaven because he wanted to, he stole some weapons from Heaven as well so he has ulterior motives for being on Earth (with his bargaining with humans and whatnot). Totally different motives there.

But really, angels can manipulate so many things through time and alternate universes. So even if it does seem like a Gabriel-esque thing to do, Balthy and Gabe are totally different characters and we shouldn't see it as such.
kaiyotekaiyote on February 5th, 2011 04:51 am (UTC)
FUCKIN' SERIOUSLY.

IA. ...although I do actually think Balthazar's motives were similar to Gabriel's. Because I don't think he just left Heaven because he wanted freedom. I think also deep down he didn't want to be... hurt. By Heaven. Or to see his other siblings hurt because of it. (I have a tl;dr theory that Balthazar was forced to watch Cas be tortured in 4x20, so that's where that's coming from.) BUT, Anna left Heaven for similar reasons as well. And all of those reasons kind of boil down to why Raphael wants the apocalypse. They're tired. They want rest. They want everything to be over. They don't want to have to watch over a world anymore. For Raphael that means ending it, for Anna and Gabriel and Balthazar that basically meant wanting to escape Heaven and do what they wanted to do.

...SO YEAH. :P

Basically my point is all of the angels are similar is some ways, because, power-wise, they are all angels and they can do similar things because of that. But more importantly, they're all family. And their problems are basically all the same. So of course they're going to be similar. But that doesn't mean one of them is a replacement for another. :\
Tracy: Cas Rock The Cas!Balalexwhitman25 on February 5th, 2011 03:22 am (UTC)
I'm so torn because on the one hand: MISHA! EDLUND! BALTHAZAR!!! On the other: the potential for embarrassment squick is so high. And I'm a little sad that my Novaks theory was wrong, lol.
kaiyotekaiyote on February 5th, 2011 06:45 am (UTC)
JUST IGNORE ALL OF THAT AND THINK OF THE THOUGHT THAT PERHAPS CASTIEL AND BALTHAZAR WILL TEAM UP TO KILL THE ASSASSIN AND THERE WILL BE AN EPIC FIGHT INVOLVING ANGEL KNIVES.

AND SOMEONE SHOULD MAKE YOUR NOVAKS THEORY A FIC! Seriously! That's still a great idea! IF ONLY I COULD WRITE!
goldenusagigoldenusagi on February 4th, 2011 11:42 pm (UTC)
YAY BEN EDLUND.
YAY MISHA AS MISHA.

I'm undecided about Balthazar helping them. How? Since when? And helping them by putting them in an alternate TV universe? Stop stealing tricks from Gabriel, and I'd like you better.

OTOH, FEMALE!RAPHAEL. FEMALE ARCHANGEL. IT'S ABOUT TIME, WE NEED MORE GENDER SWITCHING ANGELS.
Renée: Castiel. Searching for answers.rogueslayer452 on February 5th, 2011 12:02 am (UTC)
I'm hoping there's an explanation to follow, either before or after the episode because as far as we've seen, Balthazar is mostly out for himself. Either he's joining them to help himself out, or there's something else at work here. I'm just hoping it goes somewhere. Though I do agree that the whole AU seems rather....closely resembling Gabriel's ideas. I love both Gabriel and Balthazar as mentioned before but, idk.

I'm wondering how the female!version of Raphael is going to work. I view angels as androgynous and don't care about the gender their human vessel is since it doesn't affect them or this mission (ex. Castiel being able to go from Jimmy to his daughter Claire) so I'm hoping this solidifies that notion about angels can be in any human vessel regardless, as long as it fits with the particular bloodline they are connected to.

But it bothers me that there is an upcoming new angel named "Rachel". Angelical name fail to the max..... :|
goldenusagigoldenusagi on February 5th, 2011 12:54 am (UTC)
Ditto. Couldn't they have found any other name but Rachel?
Renée: SPN. Castiel.rogueslayer452 on February 5th, 2011 01:16 am (UTC)
Seriously, out of all the amazingly fierce angelical names there are, why choose one that is utterly human and plain? It's like they're deliberately trying to make her mundane and dull, because that's how they treat most of the females on the show. :/
