"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
...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.
