BAMF COMING THROUGH...  

THIS BADASS MOTHERFUCKER RIGHT HERE.



THANK YOU BEN EDLUND FOR THE WINGS! *__*


Secondly, even though our Castiel appeared at the very end there are some things I noticed. There's the Castiel and Balthazar partnership while this civil war is still going down, and the fact that they are working together makes me all gleeful because I want to see more of their interactions since their chemistry is much to be seen, even if it is reluctant on some of the things Castiel has to do during this war, whereas Balthazar couldn't care less as long as the weapons aren't taken by Raphael and he stays alive. Hope we soon see where this leads him. Also yes, the shippiness of them is also noted, the way Balthazar looked so proud when Castiel appeared with his bamf!self. WANT MORE OF CAS/BALTHY PLZ. OH, AND DID ANYONE CATCH THAT BALTHAZAR CALLED CASTIEL "CASSIE"? I MEAN SRSLY. THEIR FRIENDSHIP, WE NEEDS MORE OF IT STAT.



And of course, one cannot forget the ~profound bond~ of Dean/Castiel because it was so there in that last scene. In fact, someone pointed out that Castiel only looked at Dean when he finally appeared, other than his brief interaction with Balthazar and Raphael. Never mind the fact that Dean's reaction to Castiel's wings yet again. Now tell me that isn't pure profound bonding right there. I still think that Dean shouldn't be acting that hostile towards Castiel, and that Castiel shouldn't be apologizing all the time, though considering the danger that occurred I can understand the level of wanting to know what is going on. But you could clearly see on Castiel's face that he's been torn between wanting to tell them and wanting to protect them, and upon realizing that Raphael was going to take this on a personal level something needed to be done. I have no doubt that Castiel will tell them everything they need to know. I just wish there was more empathy on their side, you know?

I mean come on, look at his face. :(



But overall, all of that was told just from the brief moment we had of Castiel appearing at the end, and it was brilliant and glorious after such a lolarious episode altogether. I just hope that in the next episode he'll appear in there will be a conversation about what has been happening in Heaven and how it all relates to what is happening. Perhaps with a little more show then tell, though. Plus some Dean/Cas make-up time because, really, I miss them being able to be cool with each other on their profound bond level.....


In all seriousness, this is the first in a long, long while that I've been genuinely excited after an episode has aired for this show. With the feeling of overwhelming dread and outrage at many things this season, this episode legitimately placed excitement and giddiness back into my fangirl heart and feeling this kind of squeefulness is exactly what I have missed about this fandom. Granted, this was written by Ben Edlund therefore I shouldn't be surprised I fell in love instantly, and there are no other writers that do anything justice anymore, but it makes my heart jump with joy that this episode was worth everything I had hoped for and then some. I am still jittery with adrenaline because of it.

PRAISE BEN EDLUND. HE IS OUR ONLY HOPE IN MAKING IT THROUGH THIS SEASON, JSYK. ♥

First, WINGS! And yes, Dean did like seeing the wings. :)

he's been torn between wanting to tell them and wanting to protect them

I can only carry this so far. Dean and Sam keep getting thrown into the middle of the angels' problems. They're facing the danger without the information. We definitely need some more show and less tell. Because right now, 15 episodes into the season, not only are Sam and Dean in the dark, but we the audience are as well.

I just love how they cut between Castiel and Dean and then back to Castiel again. It's like, no reaction from Sam regarding Castiel's wings appearing, only Dean's. THAT IS BECAUSE THE WING SHOW IS SPECIAL BETWEEN DEAN/CASTIEL, M'KAY? ;) ♥

And yeah, the fact it's been fifteen episodes without more information is getting a little tiring. It's not even the subtle build-up of mystery and intrigue like the fourth season had, it's just random blah that makes no sense and little information. I expect more from here on out, or be prepared for me to cut some bitches. Just saying.

I WAS SO IMPRESSED AND IN AWE WITH THE WINGS AGAIN. I TOTALLY WASN'T EXPECTING IT. I WAS ALL *_____* WHEN THAT HAPPENED.

Same here. Watching this show was starting to become a chore for me, but last night's episode succeeded in reaffirming my love for it. ♥

And, yes. We need more Castiel/Balthazar scenes. *______*
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Never change.rogueslayer452 on February 26th, 2011 10:49 pm (UTC)
That's exactly how I felt. This season has been dragging, and as a whole uninteresting and lacking in many departments, however there are the few that make me happy and excited as I used to be when watching this show. This episode was one of them.

WANT MORE ELABORATION ON CAS/BALTHY, PLZ SHOW. I MEAN ASIDE FROM DEAN/CASTIEL, THIS IS ANOTHER BOND I WANT TO SEE MORE OF THIS SEASON IF YOU CAN, KTHX. :D :D :D

As happy as I am that this eps. didn't suck, the ending brings up another issue. The constant telling us something is important but not showing us why.

It's irritating!

The Civil War in Heaven should be a MAJOR deal but for the most part it's been happening in the background. And it doesn't help that Castiel keeps giving the viewer and Dean all these hints about crappy it is. This is probably the one time I can understand Dean's anger and frustration with Cas because I feel the same way.



Enough with the hints! Show us already!
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on February 26th, 2011 10:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's the downside to the entire thing really. I give props for Edlund on including major plotpoints throughout with the war in Heaven and Raphael coming after them, doing as much as he can to include the lulz and the seriousness of the situation, but we need more than that. We need actual showing of what is happening, and for Castiel to give us more information to the boys (and us, the audience).

This has given us a window that their next meeting will be all about that, and I will be sorely disappointed that it doesn't get brought up.

And yeah, even though Dean has been a jerkoff most of the season for no apparent reason, the frustration is understandable in this context. But I still feel bad for Castiel because, well, the poor angel has been through so much. Just seeing the exhaustion on his face is enough to make me wanna hug him. But yes, more explanations please show because we can't keep going around in circles. Get to the point already.

Castiel only looked at Dean when he finally appeared, other than his brief interaction with Balthazar and Raphael

Trying to make up for how much Dean stared at HIM on set earlier, even though it wasn't really him. XD

Anyway, fffff, I agree with what you said about them being overdue for a good talk! So fucking overdue, jesus.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Closer.rogueslayer452 on February 26th, 2011 10:35 pm (UTC)
lol, yes, Dean was totally staring at "Misha" throughout the entire episode. And I think "Misha" was too, there were moments I saw that he was either inspecting him or checking him out. Which makes me kinda wanna ship Dean/"Misha" which, yeah, idek.

Fifteen episodes is definitely too long. Also, I still don't get why Dean is acting so horrible to Castiel? It's like dude, wtf? idgi
Dom sits downmercury973 on February 26th, 2011 06:32 pm (UTC)
I need to see this episode about 20 more times to really process it.

Bad- I'm still upset about the killing of "Misha". I was hysterically laughing until that scene, then I wasn't finding anything funny anymore.

Good- The rest of the episode.

Best- Cas appearing. The wings! The bad-assery! Just flawless. 75% of the reason I even watch SPN is Castiel, so this was perfect. Fingers crossed we get more Dean & Cas scenes from now on. I miss those. Season 6 has been a very uneven season, but this and the 3rd episode really make up for a lot of it.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. You and I.rogueslayer452 on February 26th, 2011 10:31 pm (UTC)
IKR? THIS EPISODE WAS A TOTAL MINDFUCK OF AWESOMENESS.

The killing of "Misha" really dampered the hysterical vibe for me too, mostly because even though it wasn't our Misha it was still Misha and, well, you just don't harm Misha in anyway! Also, I think it made all of us incredibly worried on some level because random shit like that happens irl, and just seeing it happen on the screen was enough to great some kind of panic of OMG WHAT IF THAT REALLY DID HAPPEN? D: D: D:

But then I realize that Misha is alive and well in our reality, so let this be a cautionary tale for everyone.

BAMF!CASTIEL IS BACK BITCHES! AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTICAL! I just loved how he appeared, with him threatening Raphael and showing of his wings, and Dean's expression during it all, and the Castiel/Balthazar moments. And just, omgyes. And yeah, I'm seriously hoping we get more Dean/Cas scenes after this because if they don't, they has lots of explaining to do since the Dean/Cas bond is one of the vital relationships on the show next to the brothers, as far as I'm concerned.
Tracy: CasBal Crafty!alexwhitman25 on February 26th, 2011 07:14 pm (UTC)
I loved all things Misha last night, but CAS OWNED THIS EP to me. THE WINGS, THE BAMFNESS, THE CAS/BAL, THE REGRETTABLE THINGS EYE GLUEAGE WITH DEAN. It was fantastic.

My only complaint is that we are this far in the season and are still being TOLD instead of really SHOWN the war in heaven. I figured now that Sam has his soul back they would be delving into it and really exploring it now. Instead we still just have a slight glimpse of the going ons and Cas saying the same old line about how caught up in the war he is. At this point, I expect more than that.

btw, you should follow Sebastian Roche, aka Balthazar, on Twitter. He posts about Cas and his pet names a lot on there, lol.
Renée: Misha. !!!!!rogueslayer452 on February 26th, 2011 09:58 pm (UTC)
THE EPISODE WAS GLORIOUS, BUT THOSE LAST SEVERAL MINUTES? TOTALLY OWNED. *__*

Yeah, with fifteen episodes you'd think they would have shown us something more instead of just all talk. Though this did give some hope that there will be more from here on out, at least more than what we've been given anyway. I'm not holding my breath for it to be revealed in the next episode, but I just want more with the Heaven civil war and how Castiel has been dealing with it.

I TOTALLY LOVE SEBASTIAN AND HOW ADORKABLE HE IS. ♥ I love his pet names, I'm just sad that he'll be in Vancon without me. :(
Tracy: Cas Rock The Cas!Balalexwhitman25 on February 27th, 2011 03:46 am (UTC)
I don't know, man. I know the next ep is with Rufus and Sampa. Then there is the cowboy ep. I think we are gonna be down to the last couple of eps before they make a real effort in recognizing the war in heaven.

OMG SEBASTIAN. I was so excited when he got the part of Balthazar. Anytime he shows up on one of my shows I am filled with glee.
Renée: Castiel. Searching for answers.rogueslayer452 on February 27th, 2011 05:47 am (UTC)
It's really a downer realizing that they keep pushing all of this back. While I'm happy to see Rufus and intrigued with the Western episode, I feel like they're not focusing on what should be focused on this season by sticking to something solid. It's all over the place and there's nothing holding our interests except for a random few episodes scattered here and there.

More Heaven and angels, less with the boring stuff plz, kthx.

SEBASTIAN IS SUCH A DELIGHT. :D :D :D Balthazar is just amazing and I'm glad he's filling in those shoes because I can't see anyone else doing it. Though seriously, if I hear another person comparing him to Gabriel one more time I am gonna be cutting some bitches....
Tracy: Cas BAMF Entrancealexwhitman25 on February 28th, 2011 12:13 am (UTC)
It's just like them introducing a new Big Bad at this juncture and then going episodes without expanding that storyline. This season is a giant mess of storylines that just don't match up and play into each other well. It isn't quite as up and down as last season just because the season as a whole is MEH.

People who automatically hated Balthazar because they assumed he was a Gabriel replacement really, really piss me off.
Renée: Castiel. Angels bleed too.rogueslayer452 on February 28th, 2011 12:51 am (UTC)
Yeah, the disorganization and mess of handling the storylines is what bugs me the most. It's like, get your shit together.

There's still some people who think that even after this meta episode, because of the "but he placed them in an alternate tv reality, that's just what Gabriel did! Don't tell me he's not a replacement because he like totally is!" Which really confuses and pisses me off to no end. THEY. ARE. NOT. THE SAME. GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEADS PEOPLE. >:|

I understand the bitterness after Gabriel, believe me I am too. But dammit, learn to distinguish between character traits, okay?

PRAISE BEN EDLUND. HE IS OUR ONLY HOPE IN MAKING IT THROUGH THIS SEASON, JSYK. ♥


AMEN.
Renée: Misha Collins. Smile.rogueslayer452 on February 27th, 2011 02:52 am (UTC)
FAITH IN EDLUND. OUR MOTTO TO LIVE BY FOR THE DURATION OF THE SEASON, AND HOPES THAT HE'LL REPLACE GAMBLE AS SHOWRUNNER BECAUSE HE IS AWESOME. MORE AWESOMER THAN MOST PEOPLE.
imisspadfoot21imisspadfoot21 on February 27th, 2011 04:11 am (UTC)

I am in totally agreement with being excited about upcoming episodes. And the BAMF!Cas at the end was the perfect way to end a happier episode that went as crazy as this one did.

And yes...can't Ben Edlund just write the rest of the season, please? His work is always amazing!

Renée: Six. Satisfied.rogueslayer452 on February 27th, 2011 04:52 am (UTC)
He should write and take over the entire show, as far as I'm concerned. Ben Edlund is just amazingly awesome, whatever he does it genius. ♥

The wings. *g*

I think I actually squee-d at the wings. IDK CAN'T REMEMBER CAUSE I WAS LOLING AT SO MUCH ANYWAYS.

And I agree with the sentiment. First episode that really made me excited this season. I'd been getting int a point of 'ehh...don't really want to watch it but I will..." so much that I STILL haven't watched episode 14.
Renée: Castiel. PWND.rogueslayer452 on February 27th, 2011 05:57 am (UTC)
I LOL'D SO MUCH DURING THIS EPISODE. But then I got sad because "Misha" being killed. ;__; BUT THEN I WAS LOLING AGAIN, AND THEN BLOWN AWAY BY THOSE WINGS. EPIC WINGS, BAMF!CAS BEING BACK. ♥ ILU BEN EDLUND NEVER LEAVE ME.

There are several episodes I have purposefully skipped this season because I knew I would get a.) enraged or b.) the hardly interested me in the slightest. I would advise not watching 6.14 because from what I've heard, it pretty much sucked and many were displeased with it. Spare yourself the pain by just relishing the awesomeness of this episode. \O/

I couldn't have put it better myself. Ben's episodes really are the only episodes I look forward to anymore.
