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
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*
