I watched it.  
Okay. So, after pretty much avoiding all temptations I finally just gave into watching the new SPN promo that was released. I know, bad girl, but I needed to see all the fuss.


Seriously, the music creating the mood and the atmosphere was absolutely perfect. Definitely reminded me of the Johnny Cash "God's Gonna Cut You Down" promo they used for season two. It wasn't as spoilery as I thought it was going to be, but seeing new scenes and the extent to what they were showing, thoroughly impressed me and has gotten me pumped more than ever for the new season. Because I haven't read any furthering spoilers I don't know much about what is going to happen (and it will stay that way until said episodes air), but here are a few highlights from the promo alone that have gotten me excited.

** CASTIEL. I know that Misha has been made a series regular and will be in the majority of season five, rejoicing with plenty of hallelujahs here, but seeing new scenes with him and Dean just make me shiver. Who knew that him lighting up a match would be kinda awesome and hot? Also, CASTIEL AND DEAN TOGETHER OMG! IDK what's going on with Castiel -- which I think is something I've predicted since S4 but not knowing for sure -- but holy shit, scruffy!Castiel gets my approval. :)))

** CASTIEL SHIELDING (Dean? Chuck?) FROM SHATTERING GLASS = FTW. There's going to be an overload of Dean/Castiel scenes this season, I can already tell.

** JO!!!!! JO HARVELLE HAS RETURNED BITCHES! Thank the Lords of Kobol, seriously. I was unintentionally spoiled that Ellen was returning, but this was a huge surprise for me to see Alona Tal in this promo. I loved her way back in season two and I still love her now, and it was only a matter of time when they would pop up again. I am happy for this so the bitchy fandom can suck it.

** Someone pouring salt down Sam's throat? Sam having his foot on Dean's neck? Whoa. Talk about intensity.

** Isn't the song used for the promo a rendition of "O Death" sung by Ralph Stanley that was used in "O Brother, Where Art Thou"? Has certain similarities.

** "This is war!" Damn straight it's war. I have a feeling this is going to be even more epic than last season, just from the feel of this promo alone (also the last season too, if they're going to tie everything together with the Apocalypse and everyone's destiny). And I say: bring it on, bitches. Bring it on.

I know nothing more about the fifth season and if anyone spoils me for anything further than what I mentioned, casting wise or plot wise, you will be cut like a bitch. I am not joking. Looking at this promo was enough to get me stoked for the new season and I don't want to be ruined for anything else, just letting y'all know.

I loooove the song they used. Yes, it's the same song with modified lyrics. I have a live version sung by the artists from the promo if you want me to upload it.

I'm really happy about Jo and Ellen too :)

Ah, see I knew something was different about it. Which makes sense, but still awesome nonetheless. Totally fits the mood and it gave me chills.

Dude, Jo and Ellen returning makes me so happy. I actually had this notion a long time ago that they and other hunters would join in this big apocalyptic fight, and it seems (based on this promo) my wish is kinda coming true! :D

Scruffy!Castiel has me fangirling like crazy. And Dean/Cas makes me so, so happy. Sammy in white being EEVVIL made me think of Lex Luthor and made me giggle.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Peaceful.rogueslayer452 on August 23rd, 2009 12:11 am (UTC)
I am just so excited to see more Castiel, more Dean/Castiel and possibly Sam becoming more evil. Idk what's gonna happen, but dammit this promo has made things more and more interesting. :DDDD

What had me flailing hardcore was the fact that the two of them looked like resistance fighters; all dirty and fighting side-by-side. ♥
Renée: Dean/Castiel.rogueslayer452 on August 23rd, 2009 12:10 am (UTC)
Holy shit, you're right! And they would be too, with both forces of Heaven and Hell coming after them and everything in between. Now I SERIOUSLY can't wait. IS IT SEPTEMBER YET?

The song in the promo was so epic. It had me so pumped for Season 5. Great job, promo people.

Don't even get me started on all the Dean/Castiel stuff. I was squeeing like crazy.

IKR? Oh man, idk how I'm gonna last until September.

I don't count promo's as spoilers, or the episode descriptions lol. I guess it's because the promo's will be everywhere, and I have a habit of reading the episode descriptions when I'm looking through the cable guide the day it's on anyway lol.
Renéerogueslayer452 on August 23rd, 2009 02:05 am (UTC)
To me, anything involving the new season before it airs is considered a spoiler. From casting the episode titles and descriptions to promos and previews. It's also to maintain control because we have like what, almost three weeks until it premieres? I'd rather not drive myself crazy over it until then, heh.
icecoldrain: Stock - Cupcakesicecoldrain on August 23rd, 2009 02:11 am (UTC)
I guess my other comment was to late? lol. I'm avoiding casting spoilers(even though I did see one because it wasn't under a cut), and any plot spoilers for this season. I'm trying to avoid anything that isn't a episode promo, promo pictures, and episode description(unless it's a couple episodes ahead because then yeah, I would defeat the point of avoiding all the spoilers coming out lol).
Renée: Hyori Lee.rogueslayer452 on August 23rd, 2009 02:23 am (UTC)
Hehe, it's alright. This is actually the first promo I've seen for the new season so it's all new to me, but I do know there's some people on my flist who haven't seen it and don't want to see it because, like me, want to remain unspoiled before the season starts and I understand that. I just couldn't resist because, well, I was tempted by Castiel. Damn, that precious angel. ;p

Also...did you know that some people think that the S4 bloopers are spoilers? I honestly don't get that, at all.

Er...did they miss half of the season or something?
Renée: Castiel. Bookish.rogueslayer452 on August 23rd, 2009 02:59 am (UTC)
That's what I'm wondering. It's like, bzuh? How can one be spoiled by bloopers? Boggles the mind, I tell you.
icecoldrain: Stock - Cupcakesicecoldrain on August 23rd, 2009 03:48 pm (UTC)
I know, how do you get spoiled by bloopers anyway? They give pretty much nothing away since they're you know...the bloopers lol.

icecoldrain: Stock - Cupcakesicecoldrain on August 23rd, 2009 02:07 am (UTC)
I meant I don't see them as spoilers for myself lol. I think everyone has a different view on how spoiled they want to be. Some avoid all promo's(including the one shown right after the episode ends), and episode descriptions. Someone on my flist avoids the promo pictures, it's always safe to put everything under a lj cut with a warning so no one can get spoiled by anything lol.
Renéerogueslayer452 on August 23rd, 2009 02:19 am (UTC)
Yeah, there are different levels of what one considers a spoiler than what others do, which can be very difficult and tricky especially during these times of hiatusus. I don't think it's fair to call anyone who avoids anything of a new season of something an "oversensitive spoilerphobe", which is a term someone used in a community I'm a part of, I just think despite your stances it would be considerate to place anything that would be new news from something underneath a cut as common courtesy, y'know?
icecoldrain: Stock - Cupcakesicecoldrain on August 23rd, 2009 02:26 am (UTC)
Yeah, it's pretty hard on the spoiler thing. Even with books, the last HP book was leaked and some people were talking about what they read online about what happened in the book at the DH book release party. Catching an inkling of something I was like humming all loud and walking away lol. Some people don't care, they think it's fun to outright spoil people who want to be surprised by it all.
Renéerogueslayer452 on August 23rd, 2009 03:02 am (UTC)
It's those kinds of folks I don't like, who just blabber either because of total excitement or are just absolutely rude douchenozzles who have nothing better to do than to troll about. Some of us LIKE being kept in the dark and to be surprised for what is to come.
icecoldrain: Stock - Cupcakesicecoldrain on August 23rd, 2009 03:52 pm (UTC)
I know, when HBP came out, this guy wanted to find who died and read it all loud when he got his book. He was in one of the first groups to get the book, and the people around him shoved him out the door when he was flipping through the pages. He probably was bragging about it in line lol.

But sometimes you want to be shocked by it all instead of being like 'oh yeah, I was wondering when that was going to come up' after you read the spoilers lol.

This season? It's gonna be fucking EPIC as hell.
Renée: Castiel. Nngh.rogueslayer452 on August 23rd, 2009 08:34 pm (UTC)
SERIOUSLY. I am already totally psyched for it and seeing this promo? Tops everything. Holy shit. O_O
kitchensexslave: angelic castielkitchensexslave on August 23rd, 2009 09:14 pm (UTC)
Every time I watch or hear about this promo I get all excited again! It's a brilliant promo, not very spoilery but atmospheric and intriguing. If I'd never watched the show I think it'd get me to give it a go.

I won't say anything else in case I unconsciously slip in a spoiler.
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on August 23rd, 2009 10:06 pm (UTC)
Oh totally, it's probably the best promo yet. It doesn't give too much away, but it lets us know precisely what the season is primarily going to be focused around just from the feel of it. I love it.
